The Hall of Dead Records: The Baby Flies

The Baby Flies were a NYC band in the late 1980's. They had three releases that I know of. The first was a 7" single by a 5-person version of the group with a male lead singer, Pictures and Parties on the A-side, and I Only Burn in the Morning, which was given new lyrics and a general spiffing up and became Washing Over Me on their last record. After the self-released single they put out two albums, Rain and A Colorful View, on an indie label. By the end they were a three-piece with a female lead singer.

I've never seen Rain, but the CD version of A Colorful View included six tracks from it as bonus tracks.

1. Let it Fall 2. Washing Over Me 3. A Colorful View 4. Chains 5. Where the Creatures Call 6. Coming Back to Haunt You 7. Just the Beginning 8. The Only One 9. Searching Everyday 10. Give Me The Light

If that's too big a chunk, here's one song: Washing Over Me.

I loooooove The Baby Flies big time. 'Course that may just be 'cause I grew up listening to them and there was something strangely comforting about listening to interesting songs and knowing that my dear relatives were largely responsible for their creation.
