‘s debut album We Care a Lot was released in 1985, and the long out of print release will get the deluxe reissue treatment on Aug. 19. One of the extras on the album is a 1986 performance of “The Jungle” at I-Beam in San Francisco, and you can watch the video of the performance above.
Here’s my perspective: I don’t really buy into the hype about millennials in all areas, but there is one where I believe we are distinguished from other generations. We care a lot about the purpose of a brand. In fact, a recent Cone Communications study found that more than would switch brands to one associated with a cause.
“This was an album that started as a demo, before any label had any interest in us. There were a couple of reasons we decided to release this now: first of all, it’s been 20 years since it has been commercially available. Secondly, when cleaning out my basement, I discovered the original master reels, and we all thought that resurrecting this from the original tapes would be a great way to reintroduce ‘We Care A Lot‘ into the world. Lastly, this has been a band effort; we are releasing this in the same way as we recorded it, deciding everything amongst ourselves and getting our hands deep into the nuts and bolts… just like we used to.”
