Brendan Perry is the other half-- Lisa Gerrard is probably better known-- of Dead Can Dance. He started out, though, in his native New Zealand as the leader of a punk outfit called The Scavengers. In 1993 Brendan, already a 4AD artist as part of Dead Can Dance, contributed a cover of Tim Buckley's haunting "Happy Time" for an ultra-limited edition 4AD compilation The 13 Year Itch, which was sold only at a five night live festival in London, reportedly Brendan's first solo show. Several artists I worked with-- Lush, Kristin Hersh, Red House Painters, Wolfgang Press-- were also on the compilation so I wound up with a copy. I figured people here might enjoy it and find some relevance in Buckley's lyrics.
