John Lacalle's Band - A Signal from Mars

A happy little marching tune from a 1901 cylinder. Listening to it, this isn't exactly how I would've imagined this song to sound - especially judging from the wonderful sheet music cover. Perhaps we're meant to imagine the marching bands in the street parades that would be celebrating and commemorating Earth's contact with alien life... just before we get fried and go up in a big fiery puff of klaatu-barada-nikto. We're no baloney Homosapiens, take it back with ya.

  1. How cool! Thank you for taking the time to put this out there! I have a copy of this sheet music (because it was, yes, wonderful!)and wondered what it sounded like!
