    If only we still had a live version of Scream to Hear, with drum solo, Downtown Buzz version!

  • Justin:

    Craig this is brilliant! Thanks man, it’s like the revival of a legendary old dinosaur! I was just talking to my new band The Pits about our CD launch in ’97 today, we’re looking at doing a demo soon. This is awesome, really brings back many awesome memories! The ‘reunion’ we did last year was needed, we should do it again when we’re all in the same place again, maybe next time with a gig! We still got a lot of old fans who’d be there, most of them probably with kids by now!

    Nice one mate!

  • Craig:

    Yeah had forgotten about that song; it was an awesome song. I have still got a bunch of old live recordings on tape. At some stage I will get them converted to MP3, and maybe we will find it there.

    The other great one was Crimson Water; one of the few songs that has made my hand start to bleed while playing.

  • Thanks dude, that reunion was great, as soon as Chris is in town we should do another one, but this time with the PA!

    Keep well and I am gonna gatecrash one of your gigs with my camera at some stage.


  • Justin:

    Craig please do gatecrash! We got couple in the pipeline, quite possibly Mercury upstairs on 20 May, we could do with a decent photographer since I can’t take pics myself! Will be great to catch up again anyway!

    Love this site man, allow me to brag…

  • Will do, let me know closer to the time and will make a plan.

    Go ahead and brag as much as you like ๐Ÿ™‚ I still need more photos and about the band content, so if you are feeling full of words, send some to me and I will load them.

  • Justin:

    LOL look how young & handsome we are in these pics!

  • Justin:

    What are the names of the tracks on this album? I can’t read it on the image.

  • Yeah, I even had some hair in those days. So did Chris

  • I don’t know. I will have to scratch to find the original tape. Alas it was recorded before my time so I am not even on it.

  • David:

    Hey guys,

    I was the keyboard player when Elephant Sun were a UK-based acoustic band. I’m moving house in about a month, and after I have I intend to dust off all my old recording gear and rescue the recordings we did and get them onto MP3.

    Would you guys be interested in including them on this site?


  • Craig:

    David, that would be great, send them to me and I will load them. If you can send me a photo and some info about ES in the UK, we can load it as well.

  • John:

    Hi Craig

    Thank you very much for pointing this site out. I’m a big fan, used to DJ at the downtown buzz when the ‘Sun’ were playing there and I never missed a gig.

    Good times for sure

    I have a music page on facebook and would like to post one or two of these track on it. Would there be any objections?


    John Scott

  • Hey John, well you used to play good music on Sunday nights when we used to play. Go ahead and post links to the tracks. Also give us a link to your page.

  • John:

    These guys were truly ahead of their time. Their music was mature. Their vision was broad. They painted pictures of landscapes, lows, peaks and vistas. In their ‘perceptions’ they saw the blood red skies of the past as well as the broad horizon of Africa’s tomorrow.

    Through music, they brought the tenses together in harmony just as we’re still trying to come together as a nation.

    Elephant Sun felt the heart of Africa; a poets heart and they sang its song.

    And man, that guitar…

    Always be a fan

  • John:

    Hi Craig

    Music Page:

    or just log onto facebook and type ‘Music Page’ in the top search bar

    C ya

  • Craig:

    Thanks John. From your description, maybe we should be standing in the May elections as an African political party.

  • […] I have been meaning to catalogue some of my old recordings, and finally I have got to it. I have converted about 5 hours of Elephant Sun music, which is the band that I played in during the late 90′s (me on bass), and the tuesday’s child stuff is still in the pipline. So head on down here to listen to my old band. […]

  • Chris:

    Dudes ,loving this site

  • Thanks Chris, so you found the MP3’s?

  • Kate Olsen:

    You did not tell me about this site. More great music from you. You have fans in upstate New York,USA!

  • Hi Kate-

    Yes it did not occur to me, this music was recorded a long time ago ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad to have some more fans though. Hope you and your daughter are both enjoying it


  • Elza:

    Chris – been telling my wannabe-rockstar-son about this band. You going to play again?

  • karen (smithy's girlfriend):

    (hey, I’m a filmmaker – you should write this on your website, at the top of your music list). x

    Filmmakers, television and film have permission to use this music, only if they credit the band and song, and if they do NOT edit the original music.

    This music may not be reproduced.

  • Yes, thanks Karen. Probably a good point, although the copyright on the bottom should be ok

  • Thaya:
