I hear a symphony

Jim Jarmusch is much better known for his movies, Ghost Dog, Coffee & Cigarettes, Dead Man, Down by Law, etc. Around the time he was making his first films, Permanent Vacation and the New World, he also played keys and sang in a little post-punk band. The Del-Byzanteens were short lived, but managed to put out an album and an EP and a 7" on the micro-indie Don't Fall Off the Mountain. DFOTM at the time was one of the three affiliates of the U.K.-based Beggars Banquet shop and label (Situation 2 and 4AD were the other offshoots). This track, the B-side to their first release, is a cover of a song the Supremes made famous in the mid-60s, My World Is Empty Without You.
