speakin' o' big ol' Scott Thunes
https://youtu.be/7U93evWDDUw

'but i think somebody came in the house and stole them' is kind of Ed Mann.
Ed's certain Hendrix was murdered by MI6 and follows a guy who calls the 1969 moon landing a hoax. Touring can make you crazy, ladies and gentlemen. But phenomenal contribution to the ouevre. All those stupid samples in the 80s... it's like some movies are inconceivable apart from the particular casting.

Interesting. Especially I enjoined Ms. Rubinstein's recorder playing.

it's a lot like a phone machine message FZ had for a while with the drums doubling up on the voice.

the '88 band rehearsed an arrangement of Sleep Dirt but it never quite materialized
