Thanks Steve for playing the Sea Cadets cover of The Sound's "Skeletons ". This was recorded for our Adrian Borland tribute volume 2 which should be released in 2019 if all goes well. Appreciate all your support!

Amen, Ian

If this here universe so to speak produced its first baby,, that would be conciiousness. A warm December day/night thought. How about the psychedelic furs but then why interfere with an already inspired song list?

No Furs tonight, Mike, but I'll make a note of that for next week...

7:41 PM, December 15th, 2018
I didn't know that Peter Perrett did a song with Alejandro - very cool

7:49 PM, December 15th, 2018
I'm with Mike and would like to hear some Psychedelic Furs, especially some of their songs from their first few albums. I remember seeing them here in Ottawa many years ago.

Hey, Wally... you and Mike be sure to tune in next week...

Atrocious spelling but consciousness is consciousness even if misspelled without the reading glasses on the 2 by 2 iPhone 4. It corrects every word I make up though. Be tuning in Saturday thanks.
