The Fugue - Waiting for Something (1987, Door-to-Door)

The Fugue presumably resided in the Ann Arbor, MI area, though "presumably" is the key word given the utter dearth of details on this long departed quartet.  Their spin on collegiate pop 'n' roll was fairly streamlined with Waiting For Something exuding few obvious 'RIYL' signifiers.  The Pedaljets and Libertines (US) perhaps, but otherwise I'm drawing a blank, despite genuinely inspired moments like "Happiness Cage," "Ghosts" and the melodramatic "I Was Living in Your Eye."  I'd be happy to learn more about the Fugue, so if any of you have the dirt, comment away.

When I lived in Ann Arbor next to the University of Michigan campus, I discovered this album boxed by the hundreds sitting out on a lawn in front of a house with other discarded items. It appeared as if the band had lost their home. I took three of the boxes home with me, and they may still be in my mother's attic!
