Ely Parker and the CIAs

(right dudes, wrong band)
In the Year of Our Lord Nineteen Hundred Ninety-Three, Ely Parker and the CIAs practiced thrice and played out once. Chris Concannon on bass guitar, Ted Leo on guitar and vocals, Chris Norborg on drums. Two or three originals, otherwise pretty much straight up Medway Scene and its cousins and forbears.

--Chris Norborg

Below we have the live recording from the one-and-only show. And just for grins, we've got demos from one of the practice sessions as well. Enjoy!
