Don't forget that Tracey's first band was Marine Girls who have at least one CD out now with 2 albums on it. Pretty good stuff, I think at least. Check it out. (mjmjminla@yahoo.com)

very low-fi DIY stuff, kinda fun, you can listen to it, and then listen to stuff being released now on K records and think, good lord, nothing has changed in the past 15 years. (iflin@speakeasy.net)

I don't much care for it. (jjhanson@att.net
