Wow--thanks for this. I just learned about some great music I had not previously been aware of.

I was taken away by this edition of Radio Free Gunslinger -- when I later read that it clocked in at 71 minutes, I thought they'd overshot its length by 50 minutes.

I never knew that the right clutch could shift gears between 1st in a beat-up Beetle to 2d in a Jag to 5th in a freight train.

There are few benefits from residing in our nation's capital; there were quite a few more between 1977 and 1986. The chance to see Bad Brains and the availability of the original recordings of Pay to Cum were two.

I'll try to dig up the two that I have (somewhere); once found, they'll make their way to the Sutpen [virtual] smoking lounge. Through fancy electrical and electronic trickery, of course. . . .
