    Always a great show !! I’ve been making a playlist each week since 03.24.19 on AppleMusic.

    Does anyone remember Vociferous Mutes ?! They were a South Florida industrial band from 1989. Maybe too obscure. Somewhere along the lines of DieKrupps, NitzerEbb…

  9. The site is back up, hooray!

    Loved last week’s setlist Matt, as usual.

    Echo and the Bunnymen will be playing here in Oakland on Monday the 29th. Can I request the title track from Heaven up Here?
