General comments:

I just realized that haven't plugged Jehova Waitresses enough. Definitely check them out. At times, they're ectoish. Other times, they are faster and harder. Although Kevin is a great guy--and one of the lead-"people" of Jehovah Waitresses--I do like Linda's voice. It's a better Susannah Hoffs (of The Bangles). Most of their songs are written by Kevin and Linda, with much help from the rest of the group. Great group, and if in the Cleveland area, definitely check them out. (5/95, Matt.Bittner)
