Miracle Legion's Drenched long-player back in 1992, you'll be happy to lay your ears on this if you've been holding out for something extra (though I imagine most of us have moved on). Out to Play is a radio promo disc featuring six cuts from Connecticut's strummy, college rock staples. Most notable among them are two covers - a faithful execution of Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust," and a twangy traipse through da Byrds "Mr. Spaceman," that are exclusive to this CD. We also get the decent studio outtake "Over to Hell," and the less than decent, "Down Down Down, So Good Gone Bad," which amounts to five-and-a-half-minutes of hazy, acid-trip psycho-babble. Consider yourself warned. As you might guess, Out to Play features the song of the same name, one of Drenched's choicest moments, and one more album track, "So Good." If you have yet to make your acquaintance with Miracle Legion, this is a nice launch pad, but I'd actually start with the record that started it all, 1984's The Backyard ep. The Music Blog of Saltyka and His Friends also has quite a bit to opine on Miracle Legion, and they apparently had far more time to dedicate to this topic than I have.
