E is for Extras



This product is included in: Swarb!
Sixteen unique and most rare Swarb performances
E is also for excuse – and while we did not need one for including any of these Excellent tracks, we did need a place to put them – and this is it. Here are sixteen off-the-beaten-track Swarb recordings you are very unlikely to find anywhere else. Small beginnings and trick endings, challenges met and albums aborted, new ground broken and old territory re-explored…all this and more in this choice collection of “the dusty end” of Swarb’s musical life. 72 minutes
