yeah, great comp.
I got a little tired of FLiPPER after 10 years or so, but much of the rest holds up real well,
especially UNS which I didn't care for when this was new.

I wonder if you guys could post up the CLUB FOOT compilation which I think was also Subterranean records. It had a pic of a guy w bowtie on the cover,
maybe. I was a serial Subterranean reocrds head back then, but missed that one somehow.

thanks a lot for everything.
