Selling Points:
     With their instrumental prowess and keyboardist Ton Scherpenzeel‘s facility at writing
        lyrics in English, you might be forgiven for mistaking Kayak for a bunch of clever proggers
        from London. But this Dutch band began in 1968 in the city of Hilversun, where
        Schenpenzeel and drummer Pim Koopman attended a music conservatory. After the
        addition of guitarist Johan Slager, bassist Cees van Leeuwen, and vocalist Max Werner,
        the group solidified by 1972 and commenced recording. Stylistically they featured the
        instrumentation and chops of progressive acts like Yes and Genesis, but the pop song
        structures of Supertramp and the Alan Parsons Project; as time passed they increasingly
        favored the pop side of the equation. Royal Bed Bouncer, the most even balance
        between these two styles, was to be a commercial and artistic high point for the band.
        They continued to meet with minor success throughout the 70‘s on a variety of record
        labels, and in 1974 toured in support of Queen-a move that influenced the flavor of their
        later work.

                  SEMINAL DEBUT ALBUM, „SEVERED SURVIVAL‟.

            ALSO INCLUDES THE FIRST NEW TRACKS IN NEARLY 15 YEARS!

One of the early death metal acts, and no stranger to controversy over the years, Autopsy formed in 1987
in San Francisco, and released 4 albums on Peaceville Records before disbanding in 1995 & going on to
form Abscess. They have influenced a whole generation of extreme metal bands, from Entombed &
Dismember to Darkthrone. ‗Severed Survival‘ is hailed as one of death metal‘s finest releases. A
completely rotten & uncompromising sound - Dirty, sludgy, death & doom metal mixed in with repulsive
tales of death and disease.

The bonus disc comes crammed with rare and previously unheard versions of tracks from the early days &
most essentially features 2 brand new Autopsy tracks recorded in autumn 2008 especially to mark this
release. The first new material in roughly 15 years, and as sick as ever! The booklet features new
extensive liner notes by the band on the origins & history of Autopsy, including rare photos and images
from their career.

form the SONAR KOLLEKTIV ORCHESTER - a Sonar Kollektiv super-group made up of label artists
and friends. This ensemble has 15 members including 3 vocalists, 4 strings, 3 horns and a full rhythm
section. All in all it truly is a star studded line-up of only the most highly skilled musicians around. With
a team of musicians like this you would expect some pretty impressive results, and the SKO sound is
indeed nothing less than exceptional. Such a creative new collaborative project from some of Sonar
Kollektiv's finest really is a must have for fans of the label and the vibrant scene of musicians that has
grown up around it since being founded by JAZZANOVA over ten years ago. SKO is a truly special
and original project which manages to celebrate the wealth of great music that is the Sonar Kollektiv
back catalogue by reworking previously released tunes in the context of an orchestra. As anyone who
saw their live premiere at the Sonar Kollektiv festival in TAPE CLUB, Berlin during POPKOMM last
year will know, the SONAR KOLLEKTIV ORCHESTER sound just as fresh live on stage as they do on

AR/17.98
I/O: 300 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

ROLAND APPEL‘s ace track Dark Soldier was the secret hit at the 2007 Miami Winter Music
Conference, and found its way into the bags and the charts of the biggest DJs in the world
such as HELL, LAURENT GARNIER, MISS KITTIN, PETE TONG, TIEFSCHWARZ, DIXON,
GILLES PETERSON and DJ T amongst many, many others. Even UK‘s most important music
magazines like Mixmag, Fact and I-DJ acclaimed it and made it the track of the month last
summer. Now all the tracks he wrote are framed in the concept of a cutting-edge debut solo
album called Talk To Your Angel. It‘s a beautiful album of 9 tracks unifying perfectly the
feelings of a song with the energy of the dance floor. With its soothing atmospheres, dreamy
layers of pads, strings, irresistible house grooves and the lovely voice of singer ARABA
WALTON, this album will satisfy the most demanding deep-house lovers. And it will equally
please all the listeners interested in soulful music that tells you an intimate story. Talk To Your
Angel includes his masterpiece Dark Soldier and his other great numbers such as Changes,
Unforgiven, Inner Soul and New Love that have charted and been chosen by DENNIS

AT/19.98
I/O: 700 First Three Weeks: 75/50/50

Raven presents the most comprehensive, multi-label single CD collection covering the acclaimed
careers of MOTT THE HOOPLE and singer IAN HUNTER. The Golden Age 1969-1997 is a
must for fans of hard-edged rock ‗n‘ roll and outrageous glam-rock. With 77 minutes of superb
quality audio, color booklet and informative liner notes. The legendary Mott The Hoople remain
one of the best bands to emerge from the fervent UK scene of the 1970s. All their greatest songs
are here on this exhilarating collection: the rampaging ‗Rock and Roll Queen‘, the Stonesy
swagger of ‗Walkin‘ with a Mountain‘, the enduring glitter kids‘ anthem and their biggest hit from
1972 ‗All the Young Dudes‘ (UK #3, US #37), written and produced by David Bowie, ‗Honaloochie
Boogie‘, ‗All the Way From Memphis‘, ‗Roll Away the Stone‘, ‗The Golden Age Of Rock ‗n‘ Roll‘,
‗Saturday Gigs‘, the rare US single version of ‗One of the Boys‘ and ‗Ballad of Mott The Hoople‘.
By 1974 they were a huge touring attraction in the US but lead singer Ian Hunter struck out on his
own with the memorable ‗Once Bitten Twice Shy‘ (UK #14) later a US Top 5 hit for hard rockers
Great White. ‗Cleveland Rocks‘ became best known as the theme song to the enormously
popular Drew Carey Show. Also includes Hunter‘s tribute to Mick Ronson ‗Michael Picasso‘.

Sales Points:
     The Business first emerged off the streets of South London in 1979, leading a new wave
       of British punk that was hardly new wave at all.
     Instead, the Business, along with peers such as Angelic Upstarts, Blitz, and the 4-Skins,
       came out with a version of punk that was harder and more streetwise than ever, while still
       maintaining the anthemic qualities of the heavily influential Sham 69. Commonly referred
       to as Oi! or street-punk, these groups' most obvious brethren comprised the early
       American hardcore scene.
     The Business had a particular knack for churning out anthems, as evidenced by their first
       single, "Harry May," and followed by such enduring concert staples as "Drinking and
       Driving" and "Smash the Discos.

Sales Points:
     While Corky Laing is best known as the powerhouse rock drummer with the group
       Mountain, his career has lasted well past the supergroup where he made his name.
     In 1969, replacing drummer N.D. Smart and joining electric bass guitarist Pappalardi and
       guitarist Leslie West in Mountain, who along with Cream and Blue Cheer, became one of
       the seminal power trios in modern heavy psychedelic rock music.
     Mountain released three albums in two years on the independent Windfall label and
       produced the mega-hit "Mississippi Queen."
     Pappalardi went on hiatus while Laing and West formed, West, Bruce & Laing with former

15; 2nd WK: 15 ; 3rd WK: 15
Sales Points:
     It is easy to forget that Progressive Rock's main sideman Theo Travis is a fine jazz
       saxophonist and bandleader — and even was so before his involvement in groups such
       as Gong, The Tangent, Soft Machine Legacy, and Porcupine Tree.
     Double Talk is his eighth record with his own group, here a quartet featuring guitarist
       Mike Outram, drummer Roy Dodds, and Pete Whittaker on Hammond organ.
     That's right, no bassist, which opens up more space for the Hammond, lusciously dirty in
       a few tracks, such as the bluesy "And So It Seemed."
     Travis is a melodious sax player and a melody-driven composer.
      On Double Talk, his tunes are sweet bordering on romantic, and overall unthreatening.
       Therefore, the album is enjoyable.

       attempts to present the different nuances that come alive at an Eva performance, the
       rapid fire beats of afro-Peruvian “festejos” as well as the more somber yet emotive
       “valses” or “landós” - an Eva that is constantly venturing into new territories whether
       this develops in the more familiar landscape of Afro Cuban music or the worldlier Afro
       Beat.

       joined on the recordings by a line-up of celebrated musicians from Peru, as well as some

I/O: 3,000 First Three Weeks: 400/250/200

NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM THE GODS OF DOOM „MY DYING BRIDE‟
My Dying Bride has become the leading light of doom metal since their debut album ‗As the
Flower Withers‘ was released on Peaceville Records back in 1992. The band has carved a
huge worldwide following over the years with their heavy atmospheric sound and are greatly
respected today as one of the most instantly distinguishable metal bands. ‗For Lies I Sire‘,
their tenth album, has ten songs of crushing doom, recorded & mixed in Manchester, UK, with
long-time producer Mags. It is the band‘s first album since re-signing to long-time home,
Peaceville Records, and looks set to surpass even their most recent efforts, such is the scope
of this latest journey into the depths of despair.
Featuring some seriously heavy-as-hell somber funeral doom, ‗For Lies I Sire‘ wades
effortlessly & poetically through tales of darkness & gloom, this time textured with the much-
anticipated return of the often-missed violin, last featured well over ten years ago. This album
is the follow-up to 2006‘s hit, ‗A Line Of Deathless Kings‘, and is the first studio album with
new members Dan Mullins on drums, Lena Abe on bass, and violin/keyboard player Katie
Stone.

     Singer Ana Mladinovici had enjoyed a classical singer‘s education for over 5 years and
        worked with the ―Marea Neagra‖ philharmonic orchestra. Magica‘s success especially in
        Romania, South America and France kept insiders in the rest of Europe talking for quite
        some time now about the new rising star from Romania.
     Founded in 2002 by guitarist Bodan Costea Magica shortly after recorded their debut
        album ―The Scroll Of Stone‖. After two months of hard work this concept album was
        ready to be released. Despite the lack of promotion the album got airplay on several big
        radio stations and also the print magazines showed huge interest in the band. Voted by
        readers of the ―Heavy Metal Magazine‖ as ―best newcomer of the year 2002‖ the band
        did not remain hidden from the international scene. The results were contract offers that
        also covered the French and South American territories, starting with ―Lightseeker‖,
        Magica‘s second album from 2004. Then ―Bittersweet Nightshade‖ became the band‘s
        first video clip and the year 2006 saw them touring with After Forever and Nightmare.
        Several concerts with Leaves‘ Eyes, Vanden Plas and Apocalyptica followed.

LMR-CD-12/5060115510257
AR/17.98
I/O: 500 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

After you've witnessed Million Dollar Reload live you‘ll understand why they have left behind them a trail
of fans hungry for more. With catchy anthemic tunes such as 'Livin in the City', 'Fire Your Guns' and
'Goodnight New York' (to name a few) the Northern Ireland based 5-piece have built up a huge fan base
worldwide. Their singer Phil Conalane has been tipped to be the new singer for Velvet Revolver, gaining
much interest in the band.
―In addition to Million $ Reload‘s obvious musical ability, what is most striking about this album is the fact
that, despite its length, every last track could stand up on its own as a single. The band manage to carve
out and maintain their own memorable sound while remaining true to their old-fashioned rock ‗n‘ roll roots,
and their obvious conviction shines through at all times. They may only be relatively new on the scene,
but a debut album that is no filler and all killer is a hell of a way to start a career.‖ Hardrockhouse.com

Selling Points:
     This is the first fully authorized release of the debut album by Shania Twain. This is the
        20th Anniversary of this album and it has been fully digitally remastered and modernized.
        This is a 2 CD set with the digitally remastered tracks on 1 CD and the original album as
        it was recorded in 1989. Fully authorized by Shania and the estate of the late Harry Hinde
        (Shania‘s first producer).
     All 18 tracks have been remastered, most with newly recorded/remixed instrumentals,
        plus a new club/dance mix. This remastered version is vastly superior sonically versus
        any of the earlier, unlawful bootlegs. ―Send It With Love‖ is a genuine highlight, and
        Shania‘s sassy attitude reveals itself lyrically throughout. This album demonstrates
        Shania‘s still formative, raw talents in more of a late 80‘s pop/rock style, and is of interest
        mainly to collectors and more ardent fans. For serious fans in need of a Shania fix, it is a
        highly-listenable CD reflecting a particular musical time and place.

Home Market: Chicago-area, Illinois
Selling Points:
     Starcastle (along with Styx, Fireballet, and Kansas) were part of a belated stateside
        response to British progressive rock. With Gary Strater‘s melodic bass lines, Herb
        Schildt‘s Moog runs, and Terry Luttrell‘s sometimes precious vocals, the band was clearly
        modeled from Yes, particularly in its first two releases. While Starcastle usually came out
        the worse for such comparisons, there were genuine moments of fine, intricate
        musicianship. Citadel (1977) showed some musical growth away from their ―Yes-lite‖
        phase, but the band weathered 1978 about as badly as their British inspirations and fell
        apart after the artistically and financially disastrous album Reel to Real.
     Strater retained the band‘s name for a revamped configuration in the ‗80s, and this lineup
        produced some music that overcame the long shadow over the band‘s credibility in
        progressive circles.
     This is their final original studio album as a sextet.

BB/28.98
I/O: 500 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

The recordings made in the 1930s by J. E. Mainer‘s Mountaineers and those that included his
brother Wade as heard on this unique 4 cd set can be described as the link between the first wave of
string bands from the 1920s and the post Second World War sounds of bluegrass music. J.E.
Mainer was born Joseph Emmett Mainer, in Weaversville, North Carolina on 20th July 1898. Home
was the proverbial one-roomed cabin. J. E‘s father worked cutting timber, for a wage of around $3 a
week. It seems natural that Wade Mainer and Zeke Morris should have recorded together as a duo -
they really did complement each other. They had a busy time on their first recording date - the two-
day session yielded ten sides, all of which were issued. What Would You Give would be recorded
three days later by the Monroe Brothers on their first Bluebird date. A Leaf From The Sea and Going
To Georgia had already been recorded by the Carolina Tar Heels, but these versions benefit from
Wade Mainer's fine harmonica playing.



PETERSON,LUCKY & TAMARA “Darling Forever “
JSP-CD-8814/788065881429
AR/17.98
I/O: 750 First Three Weeks: 75/75/75

For years Lucky Peterson has been telling anyone in the record business who would listen that he
had one of the best contemporary female blues and soul singers just sitting at home ready to grab
her chance and ‗get out there‘ whenever she was given the opportunity. Well, they wouldn‘t listen.
Their loss! Tamara Peterson is a singer and performer of real talent. Ally her to the ultimate musical
multi-tasking of husband Lucky and this is a team that could stand up there next to the best.
Tamara‘s singing skills were honed first in church and then in the Dallas/Fort Worth blues clubs
where only the highest standards are tolerated. So far the wider world has seen little of her but this is
about to change - she is putting together everything that is necessary to hit the road and play the big
festivals. And note too that she is a fully 21st Century blues singer - there is funk, soul and more than
a nod also to a mainstream sensibility. This is all brand new original JSP Recording.


WALLER,FATS “Volume 6 Of The Complete Recorded Works”
JSP-CD-952/788065905224
BE/32.98
I/O: 1,000 First Three Weeks: 100/75/50

This 5 cd set is the final volume in JSP's comprehensive survey of Fats Waller's recording career
- and it is clear that, right up to the end, there was no pause in his energy or creativity. Although
he continued touring, time was always made for recording - Fats was one of the few artists whose
records could be certain of a market throughout the 1930s. Also included in this final collection
are duplicate cuts, and some where Fats' presence on the session is less that certain. As with
earlier volumes in this series, painstaking remastering has been performed on the best copies
available.
  Sixty years after his death, Fats‘ fame is undiminished - his most famous songs are still a radio
staple. He might have hoped to surpass his piano playing jester image - but in dispensing joy to
the world, his was a unique legacy.

MORAY,Jim “Low Culture”
NIA-CD-7/844493092131
AT/19.98
I/O: 500 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

At the age of 21 Jim Moray was hailed `...the greatest leap forward in folk for 30 years` (Neil
McCormack,The Daily Telegraph) and `the most significant musician since Bob Dylan to decide that the
folk idiom is the perfect vehicle for his musical adventures` (Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald).
Amongst other extravagant claims, his debut album 'Sweet England' was called `the most significant new
development in English folk music since Fairport Convention's Liege and Leif` (Nigel Williamson, Uncut)
and `a revolutionary experience` (Nige Tassell, HMV Choice). Critics worldwide fell over themselves to tip
Moray for great things. Now aged 26 he delivers on that promise with 'Low Culture', an album of ten
songs that defines exactly where English traditional music is at in the early 21st century. Managing to
accommodate guest spots from both folk legend Roy Bailey and Jasper Future of NME darlings Art Brut,
―Low Culture‖ plays on Moray's skill for picking bits of the past and present and re-imagining them for the
future. In the process, seminal traditional ballad ―Lucy Wan‖ is shaken back to life in collaboration with
British-Ghanian rapper Bubbz as a Folk-Grime epic, ―The Rufford Park Poachers‖ – first recorded on wax
cylinder by source singer Joseph Taylor in 1906 – becomes burning hurdy-gurdy driven alt-rock, and the
XTC classic ―All You Pretty Girls‖ is co-opted as a sea shanty for a crew featuring folk singers Tim Van
Eyken, James Fagan, Nancy Kerr and Jim Causley. ―Low Culture‖ won the fRoots Critics Poll Album of
the Year 2008 and was the Mojo Folk Album of the Year 2008. It has also been nominated for the Album
of the Year Award in the BBC Folk Awards 2009.

features a collaboration with Afro Celt Sound System's Simon Emmerson and was hailed upon its release
as the most significant step forward in Folk music since Fairport Convention's 'Liege And Lief. ―Sweet
England‖ was awarded Album Of The Year winner at the 2003 BBC Folk Awards

Jim Moray's eponymous 2006 follow-up to 'Sweet England' is an even more radical and
mesmerising interpretation of English Folk. Neil McCormack of the Daily Telegraph national
newspaper in the UK described the release as ―A word-of-mouth sensation...the biggest leap

DOOBIE BROTHERS, The: Toulouse Street; MOF-SC-2041 / 821797204163 (BC) 29.98 I/O:
750; 1st WK: 75; 2nd WK: 75; 3rd WK: 75
Sales Points:
     Toulouse Street was the album by which most of their fans began discovering the Doobie
        Brothers, and it has retained a lot of its freshness over the decades.
     Producer Ted Templeman was attuned to the slightly heavier and more Southern style
        the band wanted to work toward on this, their second album, and the results were not
        only profitable — including a platinum record award — but artistically impeccable.
     Toulouse Street is actually pretty close in style and sound at various points to what the
        Eagles were doing during the same period, except that the Doobies threw jazz and R&B
        into the mix, as well as country, folk, and bluegrass elements, and (surprise!) ended up
        just about as ubiquitous as the Eagles in peoples' record collections, especially in the
        wake of the singles "Listen to the Music" and "Jesus Is Just Alright."
     But those two singles represented only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what this group
        had to offer, as purchasers of the album discovered even on the singles — both songs
        appear here in distinctly longer versions, with more exposition and development, and in
        keeping with the ambitions that album cuts (even of popular numbers) were supposed to
        display in those days.

Sales Points:
     Again, Linda Ronstadt repeats her slick, Californian pop/country-rock formula on Hasten
       Down the Wind.
     When the material is first-rate — such as "That'll Be the Day" or "Crazy" — Ronstadt's
       performances are terrific.

CLEMO, Philip “The Rooms”
ALL-CD-1/5065001357008
AR/17.98
I/O: 500 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

Philip Clemo‘s new album is a hypnotic journey into sonic space: through individual sound ‗rooms‘ and
into the places in between. It is also a journey of awakening. The album moves through moments of
uncommon beauty, brooding reflection, intricate webs of textural complexity and atmospheric stillness. 22
individual musicians contributed to The Rooms, including B J Cole (pedal steel), Henry Lowther
(flugelhorn and trumpet), Chloë Goodchild (voice), Theo Travis (saxophone and flute), Clive Bell (Asian
flutes) and the Prague String quartet. Each performer‘s contribution was recorded individually, edited
heavily, and distilled down to the essence of that event. The sessions, recorded in Prague and the UK,
were often long and intense, bringing out extraordinary qualities in the performances. The sessions were
recorded by veteran sound engineer Phill Brown, who has worked with Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin,
Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Talk Talk and Dido amongst many others. Clemo sought out Brown since he
felt he would understand the particular quality of sound he was after. Clemo and Brown chose studios
very carefully and used vintage sound desks and valve microphones alongside the latest digital
technology to carefully craft the exquisite sound of ―The Rooms‖.

Sonar Kollektiv has the honor to re-issue the wonderful folk album Listen of from Brazilian singer-
songwriter PAUL BRYAN aka SÉRGIO SÁ. It was originally released in 1973 on the label Top Tape in
Brazil. JAZZANOVA member JUERGEN VON KNOBLAUCH found the LP while record digging in Berlin 9
years ago. He played it to the rest of the collective and they all instantly fell for it. Listen Of is also a real
collectors‘ item almost impossible to find outside Brazil. PAUL BRYAN is the pseudonym that Brazilian
artist and musician SÉRGIO SÁ used to produce an album of British and American influenced folk tunes.
SÉRGIO SÁ is a blind-born keyboard player with a long and successful musical career in Brazil as
composer, producer and arranger. He recorded with famous artists like 'the king' ROBERTO CARLOS,
GILBERTO GIL, SIMONE, TIM MAIA, HERMETO PASCHOAL, and FABIO JUNIOR, amongst many
others. SERGIO lived in the USA for 3 years, during the 80s, and he had the chance to work there for
STEVIE WONDER and to create a few songs for him. Listen Of has been a huge success and sold more
than150 000 copies in Brazil alone. As the time goes by this record has been forgotten but it was without
counting on JAZZANOVA, who proudly re-release it on Sonar Kollektiv 35 years after! And after all those
years Listen Of is still a beautiful and soothing record of ballads and romantic songs. And like
JAZZANOVA you will fall in love with it.

SOLEFALD “NEONISM”
PEC-CD-228/801056722829
AK/11.98
I/O: 500 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

Solefald (the name taken from the Old Norse word for ‗sunset‘) was formed in Norway in 1995. The band
never fit in with conventional genre labelling, always possessing a keen dedication towards
experimentation, and were therefore classified as avant-garde black metal. ‗Neonism‘ was originally
released in 1999 and ventured even further into the realms of genre expanding diversity than the debut
album, 1997‘s ―The Linear Scaffold‖. Prog metal, black metal, punk, classical, jazz, as well as multiple
modern styles & influences such as drum & bass & electronica all combine to make an incredibly varied
and fascinating album both instrumentally & vocally, whereas lyrically the album deals with cultural & social
themes, instead of more typical black metal topics. This wholly unconventional approach to songwriting
stands Solefald as being a completely unique band.

THERGOTHON “STREAM FROM THE HEAVENS”
PEC-CD-231/801056723123
AK/11.98
I/O: 500 First Three Weeks: 50/50/50

Thergothon, from Finland, was formed in late 1990. They started life as a death metal act, progressing to
slow, seriously heavy doom metal, later becoming classified as pure sadness & despair in musical form.
In early 1991 they recruited a local friend Sami Kaveri as a second guitarist & it was in November 1991
that the ‗Fhtagn-nagh Yog-Sothoth‘ demo tape was recorded, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu
Mythos. In Autumn 1992 Thergothon started recording their debut album, ‗Stream from the Heavens‘.
Two tracks from the Fhtagn-nagh Yog-Sothoth demo were reworked & recorded for this release. Non-
metal influences including prog, goth, ambient & experimental music helped to shape the band‘s sound &
atmosphere further. Thergothon disbanded in 1993, before the eventual 1994 release of ‗Stream From
the Heavens‘ though over the years the band has earned a cult status in the underground through this

THE FALL: The Unutterable; USD-CD-1328 / 604388330225 (AS) 18.98 No of CDs: 2 I/O:
200;. 1st WK: 20; 2nd WK: 20; 3rd WK: 20
Sales Points:
     For The Unutterable, Mark E. Smith settled in with the (mostly) new lineup that debuted
        on 1999's The Marshall Suite and recorded yet another gorgeous, rambunctious, only
        occasionally scrutable masterpiece.
     Though it's not overly chocked with new ideas (especially for those already well-versed in
        the Fall canon), The Unutterable benefits from excellent songwriting and the crisp
        production of soundman extraordinaire Grant Showbiz, on loan from Billy Bragg.
     Despite a few tracks whose blueprints have been heard on countless Fall LPs in the past
        (just listen to the jaunty garage stomp "Hot Runes"), and a dangerously wizened-
        sounding Mark E. Smith on several tracks, The Unutterable is another excellent work
        from a band that, by all rights, could've burned out before some of their youngest
        present-day fans were even born.
