Last minute q?

Anyway, plot = "write song, send it to disinterested musician, he records it and presses some 45's and mails em back to you."

Rodd Keith: Genius? Some of his where he gets reasonably impressed with the source and/or sees something to build on.

I got "I died today" the title track being one of the best ones, would prob have been a hit in England (we kinda like story tale songs).

No time to enlarge, shall post a link to a great site with loads of m3s on.

i need to get one of those song-poem compilation cds. i have a 4th generation cassette of a bunch of the really classic ones like 'jimmy carter says yes' and 'a convertible and a headband.' the ultimate one is probably john trubee's 'blind man's penis.'

These are some of the 'not quite good enough for the compilation CDs' mp3s. But that's their opinion, a random picking shows some great stuff.

And for you Lucia Pamela fans, one of her songs is here.

i could swear they used to have an mp3 of 'blind man's penis' here but it looks like they took it down. hmmm

I just happened to find this on the news page in a bit about a 'cloying' elvis tribute.
Alas, it is a bit too late now, as, barring the appearance of some last-minute financial angel, the entire MP3 substructure of the site will come down on January 5 of the new year. Fodder and his colleagues are to be congratulated and thanked for giving us a year's worth of tough-love musical thrills, and their exploits in the months and years ahead deserve to be watched closely.

Sorry for raising everyone's expectations.

That embarrassing situation we all find ourselves in from time to time, of a chance encounter with your mother triggering suppressed memories of your having methodically beaten your brothers and father to death.
