Collapse / Ashes, Ashes

by C'est la Mort

  • Streaming + Download




"Collapse" and "Ashes, Ashes" were our first official release from our second recording session. (There are also a few songs from the first session kicking around Chez la Mort -- maybe they'll be part of the career spanning retrospective box set). While Karyn (and Rebekah) did most of the singing in the pre-C'est la Mort band Billy Shook, "Ashes, Ashes" is one of the few CLM songs to have Karyn singing the lead. "Collapse" has always been a live favorite (at least for the band).

These two songs were featured on the (great) Strength in Numbers compilation that documented a group of neo wave, indie, and rock bands that were all under the radar at the time: Birds of Prey, Infomatik, Math & Physics Club, Razrez, Bullet Club, The Jeunes, Rosyvelt, and C'est la Mort. Limited to 1000 copies, the comp soon sold out and was never released digitally.
