The only bad thing about the internets is to have heard about this guy before, I would have probably had to go to my LOCAL RECORD STORE, to the guy who owns it and knows my tastes. Now, some random 0111000 tosses a review at me, and I go, WOW. Review here.

Just a wee bit of housekeeping. If you haven’t already (stern look) please like us on teh Facebook, and we are all available to follow on Twitter. Gotta is great, David is fabulous and Lucian is smart and funny. Me, I’m still trying to get the font big enough to read, but I will get there eventually. Or just follow the whole damn lot of us here. Thank you.
