My band cuppa joe was fortunate enough to have been asked to contribute a song to the Dromedary Records compilation "Make the Load Lighter: Indie Rock For Haiti". The digital-only release was put together in a startlingly fast two week period, and features contributions from fantastic bands all over the world.
Taniqua, the song we contributed, was recorded in 1995 and was never widely available - so all the better to have it included on this special project. We were proud to be included - especially considering that all proceeds are going directly to the volunteer organization The Voice of Haiti to benefit earthquake victims.
Here's the full track listing:
1. Footstone: “For the Boss”
2. Boss Jim Gettys: “With a Smile”
3. Cuppa Joe: “Taniqua”
4. Moviola: “Calling on the Line”
5. Three Blind Wolves: “Sex is for Losers”
6. Paula Carino: “The Great Depression”
7. Wallendas: “Adrianne”
8. The Neutron Drivers: “All Around the Sun”
9. The Dark Brothers: “Knee Deep in Sin”
10. There Will Be Fireworks: “Foreign Thoughts”
11. Gena Rowlands Band: “F*ckups of the World Unite”
12. The Mommyheads: “Spiders”
13. Farewell Singapore: “Blue”
14. Jenifer Convertible: “St. Pete”
15. lions.chase.tigers: “To Their Blood”
16. Stuyvesant: “Salieri”
