the waking hours - what you don't know 7" 1992

the waking hours are tom richards, dave collins and rob clark. an indie outfit from the east coast mainly based in richmond virginia, where their label "brilliant records" was situated. the songs were recorded on 8-track late in 1992 and was self-produced by the band. with boyish looks and brit like indie hairstyle, these guys were so right and fit for the c86 movement!
