Moondog Jr. - Introducing Demo

As promised earlier, hereby I present to you something pretty special, 'cause it's very hard to find. Simultaneously being a composer/singer/bass player for dEUS, Stef Kamil Carlens had "his own" band: Moondog Jr. (actually formed before dEUS was). They released their debut album Every day I Wear A Greasy Black Feather On My Hat) in 1995, and some time before they demoed a lot of the songs that turned up on this album. This was the tape they handed over to record companies to get a deal. A lot of the songs on the debut sound as if they were recorded in a living room, and in fact, they were, in the drummer's living room to be exact. 
A couple of songs (Cachita, The Ricochet, Love Is A Heavy Brick and  Ice Guitars) were later re-recorded in a proper studio for the album. The original versions can be found on the Introducing Demo. The other songs on the ID are also different than the album versions which led to my conclusion that they must have re-recorded these songs in Jespers' living room after getting a record deal (I know, kind of a bold statement). Anyway, without further ado: The Introducing Demo! And as a bonus, I included the B-sides from the two EIWAGBFOMH singles.
1. TV Song
2. The Ricochet
3. Love's A Heavy Brick
4. Ice Guitars
5. Jo's Wine Song
6. Moondance
7. Cachita
8. Blues For Sammy
9. Shall I Let This Good Man In?
10. Moondog
11. Jintro & The Great Luna (Band Version)
12. Moondance (Disneyversion)
13. Habibi Ouldi
14. Ice Guitars (Acoustic)
15. Tiddlywinks
