the strand - you saw me swimming(the dolphin song) 12" 1986

ok, so i finally found time for myself this past weekend.. no cheer leading competition to go to, no weekend at the beach thingy and no more must-do projects, 'least none that i know about. anyway when a man got an extra time for himself he turns to his hobby, and so i managed to burn several records from my unsorted new arrivals. some of which are totally unavailable on the web and some were not so familiar to our listening ears yet. and that's were the strand stands out, i am/was very curious about this band, i've seen this record quite a few times in my life and as early as the beginning of the nineties when i started collecting records and tapes. that's right cassette tapes my friends, and i know i shouldn't have to coz it's a waste of time and will it ever be a collector's item? perhaps not very many, but i know one tape that every single indie-pop fan wants to get their hands on is that one and only album by playing at trains called "go"(it was never released on any other format). so anyway back to the post, i can't find a single info about the band. i know the singer don't like dolphins coz apparently they've(dolphins) stolen drinks from him. lol. this is a really cute song, boy and girl vocals and catchy as hell too. it was stuck in my mind for a couple of hours, and blimey you'll learn to love it and you'll be humming before you know it. there is one little set back though... you might start hatin' dolphins for no reason!

the single contains two songs, the a-side which you will be able to sample below c/w the flipside(which is the remix version) sample available upon request.
