Afraid to Go to Sleep by The Tom & Marty Band

Album Description

Tom Campagnoli
Marty McCavitt

Formed in 1980, The Tom and Marty Band have always referred to their act as "Electronic Folk Music" and claim to have been inspired by outer space, film, science, myth, love, nature, children and the sounds of the world around them.
