  1. An official thankew for the Roll The Dice.

  2. Wow...that Jean-Claude Vannier tune is quite the ditty. Its kinda odd that its so short in length. I'll definitely check out more of his stuff.

    (another gem from Finders Keepers?!)

  3. Its always great to hear Porcelain Forehead.....shame they're not in too many discussions about that era of hardcore. Imagine if they were from DC!

  4. I think that the Maz cd is up for a Juno.
