Description
NOTE: The quality improves after the first minute

From the wayback machine, all the way to 1991...

This is the only remaining recording I have from my original band Homage to Wattage. I think this was recorded on a portable 4-track recorded in San Jose, California at the Rock Gardens (A band rehearsal place). We had just written this song is the only thing I remember because I do remember thinking we should have recorded another song instead.
The only thing I have are some rehearsal tapes (which are nearly dead). But, I have to say we had a pretty cool band.

Unfortunately, there is no singing on this and this is a transfer from tape cassette onto my Zoom H2. Really lo-fi stuff.

I think some of you will actually enjoy this. Ha

Love the band name
There's a dorky band here that is very familiar with the wayback machine. I'm glad you dialed up 1991. Funky as hell. I'd like to see someone put this track to a blacksplotation trailer. I'm feeling it.
