The Laughing Mothers - Tunnel/Cats Cradle 7"
Here's another obscure one. The Laughing Mothers were a UK postpunk band. Don't know exactly from where in the UK. They don't like to be called goth although they appear in Mick Mercer's Gothic History book.
Another track appeared on 'The Timebox' comp. album which also featured The Fifteenth, Thatcher On Acid, Blyth Power, ... The Timebox seemed to be a venue in London back in the day.
They have a Myspace page here. There are some unreleased songs you can listen to.
IMPORTANT!! the tracks are labelled incorrectly. Seems that the labels were printed in reverse. So 'Tunnel' should be 'Cats Cradle' and vice versa. Thanks to Robertzombie for pointing that out.
