This week, on this old website.

I cannot believe I found this in archive. My original website, hosted on Chebucto Freenet, from late summer/early fall 1996. This baby is 10 years old.

CD of the Week

Bill Janovitz – Lonesome Billy This record was released in 1996 on Beggars Banquet, and was the first solo record by Buffalo Tom frontman Bill Janovitz.
