    ...well i guess this is late considering the show was over a week ago...i just started listening to them and the guys from the Sea and Cake...it was an incredible show, a mind blowing experience...true musicians...anyway after the show i check out this one table and i see this dope graf mag...well i tried to srape up the money, but to no avail, spent it all on kettle and cranberry...so some other kid comes up and buys the last one...well, the kat working the table tells me to check out 12oz for more info...small world i tell him, i just started hangin around that site...well the dood goes all the way into the back to see if he can pull one out, but couldnt find anymore...if he checks out the site i just wanted to tell him

    i used to be into them, when their first album came out.
    they have some pretty alright shit. i lost interest, but i still
    think they have some nice stuff.

    hell yeah roe.. glad you caught that show, i saw them in philly about a month ago, and had pretty much the same conversation with the dude from 12oz. the show was definately mind blowing they just need to play longer!!

    nice, i have a few friends that have seen them, and loved it.
    trust me trying to put you guys onto some other shit.
    get CAN or FAUST. its shit from the 70's,but believe me,
    its amazing shit, you will thank me later, trust me.
    on another note, faust used to get fresh cut grass in huge
    bags and throw it in front of huge fans that faced the audience for
    mmm, fresh cut grass.....
