    Finally got around to listening to this tonight (right now in fact) and all I can say is thanks. I think I’ve listened to Modern Roll 5x in a row now. The KBD stuff I pretty much knew nothing about until a year ago, I was more of a straight 83-87 HC listener and this site is quite an education.

    I was the owner of Nanxiety Records here in Phoenix Az. Also Gilamonster Studio, a 1/2′ 8track studio where these records were all recorded, mixed and package-designed. I did the artwork for this particular “demo”, which we handed out as promos and also sold at the Red Squares “release party” at the Celebrity Theater. I also did the Feederz Jesus EP (mine is the only real name on the entire product, which is quite a mixed blessing in this day-and-age twenty-plus years later!), the Spiffs “Garbage” and K-15 AM Radio’s “2 x 2” (The Nervous and The X-Streams).

    Wow, never fails to amaze me; I rec’d a couple more emails from fans today (one in Spain). When we recorded this 45 w/Dave Albert, I never thought I would get the response it has today… Now that RAVE UP sold out of the Album, the only thing left is to get 45’s at outlandish prices. I have been offered more $$$ for my remaining 45’s than early Beatle acetates go for. Dave Albert, contact me if you will…sonicmikestephens Thanks and keep the pogoing going
