"Girl's Imagination" has been released on cd in the Beggar's Banquet compilation Pspyched (1999).
"A band that insouciantly blended high and low, virtuosity and amateurism, calypso and science fiction, pots and pans and drones and the Supremes. They released several records, on a British label, which did very well in the former Yugoslavia."
In the early 1980's, Jim Jarmusch was part of a band called The Del-Byzanteens. They released a 7" single, "Draft Riot", a 12" EP, "Girl's Imagination", and one LP "Lies to Live by".
The group consisted of (from left to right):
Josh Braun (Percussion, Drums), Dan Braun (Drums, Percussion), Jim Jarmusch (Vocals, Keyboards), Philippe Hagen (Bass) and Phil Kline (Vocals, Guitar)
"At that time everyone in New York had a band," Jarmusch recalls. "The idea was that you didn't have to be a virtuoso musician to have a band. The spirit was more important than having technical expertise, and that influenced a lot of filmmakers." (Interview in The Washington Post, 1984)
