Hi. Gabriels is a 3 piece from L.A. and they went over big on the BBC. Also KCRW (L.A.). Could be considered alt. pop (?)... Thanks.

Ahhh, sad news D&DL. Black Uhuru was in the "if I have time" section of the records but they've now been bumped up to "play within the next few"!

Chris Ikonomopoulos (host)
Hey robert! Okay! thanks for the info! I guess the BBC connection is why I though maybe they were from the U.K. Great EP!!

That "Stereotypes" song is a funny. Good production to boot!

4:44 PM, February 5th, 2024
Chris Ikonomopoulos (host)
Hey Ben. "All I want is my stereo". I'm happy to be a stereotype based on that.
