Throw off your mental chains.

I want to blog about a few of these (aka warn you about some of them), but I have a friend visiting from out of town and I don't have the time. Sorry, yo.

Edit, Thurs. May 24, 7:35 AM Central Time: One of my web hosts has been having intermittent DNS issues and is working to fix it. If you've had difficulty downloading these tracks, my apologies. I just uploaded them to a different host so they should be working momentarily. Please give it a moment and refresh your browser and try again.

    Hey, there! Your links aren't working. Please check 'em, 'cause I reeeeeally want to hear "Emperor's New Clothes."

    Thanks a bunch!

    Amy- I just tested the links and was able to download all of them. I'm not sure why you're having difficulty.

    Anyone else having problems?

    Amy: Actually I just checked again, and it seems one of my web hosts has been having intermittent DNS issues and is working to fix it. If you've had difficulty downloading these tracks, my apologies. I just uploaded them to a different host so they should be working momentarily.

    Some of your links are mispelled as well. [michaelharren.com, not michealharren.com]. But I'm commenting to tell you how fuckin' wonderful that "Shake the Disease" cover is. You've made my week. :)

    Lobstar said...

    RSL- D'oh! Should all be fixed now. Glad to oblige.

    The Sunshiners' version of "Shake The Disease" is delicious, thank you. ;D

    Hi! Jonas here again.
    Fun stuff here. I dl'd the Graveworm(awesome~!) and really enjoyed the Beat Crusaders - they were right on with that.
    The Sunshiners were nice as well.
    It was also refreshing to hear "Cool it Now" by females as it should have been the first time around. :) I think you've really found a cool niche here with cover songs - I always like hearing covers even though they are not usually as good as the originals, sometimes they do even better or but a cool twist on 'em. have a good one.
