The Ghost Of David Hyde

After Robert Forster and Grant McLennan split up The Go-Betweens for the first time at the beginning of the 90's, Lindy Morrison and Amanda Brown formed the short lived Cleopatra Wong. The band released two EPs, "Egg" in 92 and "Cleopatra's Lament" the following year. Sadly both releases suffer from being a product of their times in that what could be some great songs are swamped in bad fake strings synth sounds and horrible drum machine production. A couple of songs however sneaked through the net when the producer wasn't looking I guess so that's what we have here for you today.
