Man you are sooooo right on when you say Mardi Gras
is the best record of 97(best so far). It disgusts me
to hear someone slag them, especially one who
obviously has no clue what they're about.  Wooden
Stars are a phenomenal band, and  to call them an
"annoying" Local Rabbits "rip off" is ludicrous.  Was
this person actually listening when they played? What
were you doing when they were playing?  And to call
them obnoxious is so far off base. The Wooden Stars
are a truly special band, and Brendan is right,
everyone should buy a copy of Mardi Gras.
