Any fans of this fantastic band / songwriter?

Just re-discovered all their stuff on an old hard drive, so manu good songs.

There’s a CDr album in my collection that seems to be a Greg solo record pre Dawn Parade, it’s oabelled ‘Passing Down Fate’s Dusty Highway’, and has songs like Miss Serville, A Riskng Baloon and Calm,The Rumor Mill’. Anyway, it’s definitely Greg McDonald and I always listened to these tracks in the mid 00s along with all the DP and his post DP solo stuff.

But it’s intriguing me because there’s no mention of this album anywhere else online. I remember it was sent to me by a kind soul from some forum or other, back in the CD swapping days pre most people uploading stuff to share.

I can’t recall who she was tho.

Anyway, i missed the early days of the band when they were being championed by Peel etc, but wondered of anybody here followed them and knew more?
