Earwig is the name of a great band from the early 90’s. They sound like they could have been on 4AD records and a successive band by the name of "insides" in fact landed at that label. Unfortunately, all of their music is out of print and has been for many years. I was able to find one album at gemm.com.
They pointed me to secondspin.com which had the album for sale at a reasonable price. The band’s other LP ("Past") was obtained by posting it on an internet want-list. That one cost me considerably more.
Note also, there is currently a band from the Midwestern United States bearing the same name. They’re actually pretty good – though they have a completely different sound. To add to the confusion, the "other" Earwig released an album entitled "Perfect Past Tense" while "this" Earwig has an album of rarities entitled "Past". Good luck sorting it all out.
Do you know anything more about this band? Do you have copies of their old vinyl and CD5 recordings you’re looking to unload? Do you have pictures from album covers or live events? Are you somehow associated with the band and can provide more information? If so, please send me an email. I’d like to hear from you.
If you can find the two full albums ("under my skin i am lauging" and "past"), you’ll have all but three songs by the band. One of the missing songs ("blind stupid and desperate") appears to only be available on the "Hardley" vinyl EP, while the "every day shines" single has a remix of the title track plus a b-side which does not appear anywhere else.
