  3. Hi Matt

    Since it seems like we’re returning to the days of the Cold War how about “Wet Job” by Fingerprintz (a song about Bulgarian assassins doing Moscow’s dirty work)? Many thanks!


  4. OK, awesome show, once again. Thank you. Also for playing T.S.O.L. :) Next week – I echo the PFurs and Japan (Kris above asked for), also, how about some Dalis Car. Finally, The Normal TVOD (since you played the Murphy/Reznor Warm Letherette last week it made me think of TVOD). BTW I hadn’t heart that collaboration it was amazing!!! Don’t wait forever to play it again :)
