The Quarantines - Corona Rhapsody '86

Share Download this song

Author Comments

In 1986 The Quarantines released their first single "Corona Rhapsody" from the album "Lockdown Liberation".

Only a handful of vinyls survived the original album production run, which were sent to a few avid record collectors. The rest were lost to a tragic factory fire that happened during the production run in August 1986, which destroyed most of the record company's assets including the glass masters, and sent Furloughed Records spiralling into bankruptcy.

Their ambitious tour manager Carl Oscar Vincent Isaac Davidson - 19 at the time, said that they would "not let this catastrophe be the downfall of the band" and that they would "continue to make music if people still wanted to hear them".

As luck would have it, I found this tune on an old VHS tape recording from an MTV episode that aired back in the late 80's in my mother's basement a few days ago and thought it would be worth sharing with everyone.

Let me know if you like it, and if I find any more, I'll share it with you guys.

LOVE the story. The music is excellent too.

Man...I love this! Takes me back to the good days of electronica...wait...
LOL being an 80s baby, this just screamed nostalgia all around!
This would be very well suited for a Collab of SOME kind...god knows we're all bored as flip-sauce being stuck inside 24/7...
Thank you for sharing this lovely piece!

This is such a great tune! I haven't heard it since the old days of radio plays, thanks for finding these guise. Especially since they went on hiatus forever, a day after Carl made that statement and then most of the band succumbed to a novel version of Pnuemonia.

I like it. These past few years I have discovered that I have a fondness for this genre of music (I'm a 90's kid btw). Also, "The Quarantines"? ""Corona" Rhapsody"? Pretty sure it's not a coincidence.
