On September 28th, 1990, The Aquanettas played at CBGB’s! I recently discovered this wonderful band after I found their debut album, Love With a Proper Stranger, in the “Hoboken and Related” section at my local shop, Iris Records. Since then, I’ve been a fan, and I was quite delighted to discover a live recording of one of their early performances in The McKenzie Tapes archive!
Shortly before this gig, the band played the New Music Seminar in NYC, and signed a deal with Canadian record label Nettwerk Productions, who distributed their albums through IRS Records in the U.S. The band would release two more EPs before disbanding in 1995.
