double thanks man. if I get around to making a top 50 of the year Molten Honey will certainly be near the top. we need to jam again!

I'm checking out that Giant Skyflower Band- what a killer cover.

O SHIIIIT.

I JUST got home from vacation, rolled one, then opened this. Quite a nice return!

As you and everyone who's heard me talk 'bout music/sound knows... Molten Honey is the implicit object of my LOVE. I didn't even bother tainting that LOVE with a placement in a top 50 of mostly strangers and who-knows-what.

Thank you for exposing me to so much killer sound.

well, you're a very good writer too, John. You just need to post more! Thank you though, that's very very flattering.

Hey, John, have you heard of Crystal Castles? They're this electro-thrash duo that I came across. I thought they were interesting, but wasn't that big a fan of them, but it struck me as something you might like. I dunno. I read that they stuck an Atari chip or something in a keyboard and that's how they got all their spiffy synth noises. Anyhoo...just throwing that out there.
