Sea Haggs/Keckle/Lora Macfarlane - Jelly CD

Released around 1995, this independent CD was a retrospective compilation of recordings from one Lora (later Laura) Macfarlane's various projects. These included the Sea Haggs and Keckle, some solo work, and one track by a band named Popemobile. The recordings were fairly lo-fi, containing elements that would be familiar to followers of Laura's subsequent Ninetynine work (jagged guitars, chromatic percussion, the odd cute melody and, of course, her distinctive vocals) and some that probably wouldn't (a recorder makes an appearance in a few places). The CD came with homemade packaging fashioned from pages cut out of children's books.
