This was great fun. Didn’t know where it was taking me. Just knew I wanted to start with a horse. French horse. French horse showbill. Obscure French horse showbill.

The music is amazing. Must check out these bands on MySpace. Prepare to be amused.
The Terrordactyls and Yes, Oh Yes, both on Don’t Stop Believin out of Vashon Island.
