    A collaboration between Jane Woodman and Zoe Keating

    Zoë Keating and Jane Woodman first met in 1996 when Zoë answered a listing in the San Francisco Bay Guardian for "moody, darkwave band seeking strings". Jane was already well known as the founder of major label band "Van Gogh's Daughter", whose video debut had regular rotation on MTV2. Zoë had recently arrived in San Francisco and had never before amplified her cello. Thus, along with bassist Gianfranco Pescetti, violinist Tony Cross and drummer Kat Zumbach, the band "Alfred" was formed.

    With its lush, distorted guitars and sweeping strings, "Alfred" quickly gained fans and momentum. But just as they were getting started, the band broke up. Zoë went on to join cello-rock band Rasputina and Jane focused on her solo work.

    Tango combines Jane's apocalyptic romanticism with Zoë's otherworldly cello aesthetic.

    This song is also available on vinyl along with a cover of the Psychedelic Furs song "Sister Europe" at: http://music.zoekeating.com/album/sister-europe-tango-ep
