I hope 'Men At Work' was OK, then. They were lotsa fun when I was in
(ohmigod!) Hi Skule. I hear there's a new Hoodoo's album out in
Australia that's not out in the States. Shades of Sloan! 'Stoneage
Romeos' is one of my all time favoritest records ever.

I heard, second or third hand, that the U.S. release date for OCTA is
in early October sometime.

Me, I first heard Sloan in a record store where the owner would always
play stuff for me he thought I would like in hopes I would buy it. And
then I got a comp. from Refelx magazine just as they went under that
had 'Underwhelmed' on it. It rawked my world.
