If you have any requests to hear a particular track or band again then do let me know. See you for the next episode!

    pretty good show you had here man..I enjoyed quite a bit of it..I might need to buy a Headshear album to make a final decision on them..they are very random, which I like..but they are somewhat tame for my tastes..I like em, but then parts of me doesn’t..it’s a really weird feeling..

    other highlights, Peter Kearns, The Noun, The Puppets (Love that song on here), Feed the Ghost, Project Adorno, annnd Crooked Mouth was absolutely wonderful.

    as usual, great musical choices….can’t wait for next month..lol, in more ways than one :D lol

    Eppy, my most favorite of this podcast was Lucky Number Cruncher. That’s the first and only song i’ve ever heard by Project Adorno. I enjoyed that very much. I also liked The Elephants, The Orbiting, and Ella Blame.
