Cricket | One Side Has Covers, The Other Side Doesn’t

Cricket was an early name for The Huntingtons. This demo has a mash-up of “In the Ghetto” / “Suspicious Minds” / “Skinny Skins” that they called “Ghetto Minds Make Skinny Skins.” It was kind of like the lyrics to “In the Ghetto” mixed with the music of “Skinny Skins,” then added to the chorus of “Suspicious Eyes,” ending with a few snippets of “Skinny Skins” lyrics. This track also appears on a compilation demo called Brown Cow.
