pure intensity

what it is: ????
where i found it: the south

This was forwarded to me by Randall from Georgia, who I hadn't heard from in a lot of years. Then this thing comes out of the blue. I'm not even sure how he got my e-mail. Anyhow, he's a guy who taught me that the Rolling Stones were not just a band  that makes crappy radio hits, but could create things like MONKEY MAN and MEMO FROM TURNER. At this point in history that might seem obvious, but when you're an acidic 17 year old it's a meaningful discovery. The effect of this music will be greatly increased if you can listen to it on vinyl pretty loud. This is probably true of Mark Gormley's music as well, but I haven't been able to find a vinyl copy as of yet.
