I've been trying to slowly savour this record in all its stupendous diversity, but this week I couldn't resist playing two songs from the Windsor compilation From The Tank, brought to you and me by producer Mark Plancke and his mighty fine Sharktank Productions.
You can find plenty more details about this CD and all the bands contained therein at: http://www.sharktankpro.com/fromthetank/

Thanks for listening!
Oh yeah, I'm not sure if that Casiokids song listed above is actually the one I played. It's not the one I meant to play. (Ugh, for the love, duh, etc.) I'll sort it out and play the mystery song
Argh! Snark addendum: I keep saying that Casiokids are from Denmark and they're NOT! They come from the land of fjords. They come from Norway. Bergen, Norway.
