MIRACLE LEGION – ” The Chapel St. Demos “

Posted: August 6, 2021 in MUSIC

The are very early demos done at the Miracle Legion loft on Chapel St in New Haven. It’s one of the first times we recorded as a 4 piece band. Our friend Rondo brought his 4 track reel to reel (4 track is the true way) over and we started recording all kinds of music. These 5 were new songs. Eventually they all ended up on different records. All but one. ‘It Cuts Into a Friend’ was a song we played live a lot, but somehow it got put away and forgotten. This happens, but now the wrong is righted. Miracle Legion were a Connecticut-based band that immediately sprang to life on the heels of a post-R.E.M. guitar rock boom, chiefly because lead singer Mark Mulcahy’s voice bore an uncanny resemblance to Michael Stipe’s, and the arpeggio guitar structures were akin to Peter Buck’s. 

The interview is from out first ever UK tour. We were on a label called Making Waves and they had a great press department. We did tons of interviews including this one which is very detailed and possibly informative. I’m sorry but I don’t know who the interviewer is. Apologies to him. Nice work sir.
