Cricket | Joe Christmas Playing on the Stereo

Cricket was an early name for The Huntingtons. This demo has a cover of Lifesavers’ “Jet Plane.” This track first appeared on their self-titled demo, and later appears on a compilation demo called Brown Cow.

In 2020, The Huntingtons announced they were remastering and re-issuing all of their demos as Cricket in a six volume set called the Foundations Series on their BandCamp page.
