The Eagle and the Hummingbird 1994

| 6 Comments

In 1994, Cats Laughing, with Frank Runyon on rhythm guitar, played a show in the basement of the Irish Well.  Boiled In Lead drummer Robin “Adnan” Anders–my drum teacher–sat in with us for most of the show.  It was just about as much fun as I’ve ever had.

This MP4 clip has fairly bad sound, and worse video–not much could be done in ’94 without money.  But Corwin did as good a job at rendering it as could be done.  The song is called “The Eagle and the Hummingbird” and was written by Lojo to lyrics by Jane Yolen.

  1. YES.

  2. Lyrics by Jane Yolen!

  3. I hope you show was everything you had wanted it to be.

    This video is so large it might be overwhelming some people’s data plans; I’ve saved the audio to a 1.5Mb MP3 if you’d be interested in having it to share with people unable to download the while thing.

    Emma: Fixed now.

    L. Raymond: Everything and then some. I’d love to have the audio available!

  5. You say “It was just about as much fun as I’ve had”… how does it compare to the show that played last night on April 3?

    Friday at Minicon was just…I don’t have the words. I’m still high. Just, you know, insert all the superlatives. Twice.
