I just need to get another Burroughs book in a similar vein...

The tunes sort of have a country blues feel but the music is quite marvellous with some a hint of Magic band in the music, they do resemble a more commercial band, which is quite ironic because they got no where! I think this is because of the singing, even though this guy - Sam Galpin is pretty good, his style is very different to the roar of the… Read more
