Happy Birthday, little Oakley... and some NEWS!

First, today is little Oakley's birthday, so for purely self-indulgent reasons, I wanted to RE-post this bit from a VECTORS' show that took place at Gail's lovely Millennium House about three years ago. It's a song I wrote for Oakley's third birthday. And yeah... it's his tenth now and I have yet to record a decent version of it or even finish the lyrics. They keep changing as he grows older, but in every version, you can hear, "But there's a good life in the meantime. It's a good time to be three. Happy birthday, little Oakley!" One of these days, I'll finalize the thing, but for now, happy birthday, little Oakley, once again:

Now as for the news part: I just want to say that I've got lots of rips in the can right now. I've got the U.S. MODS 1987 album, In the Free World. I've got the double compilation LP, Breathe on the Living, featuring spoken word and music from both Dayton artists and others from parts far flung from 1989. I've got zine scans from Jen Angel's immortal Fucktooth and Greg Simmerlink's... uhm... LESS than mortal Mutant Renegade. I've got cassettes from BAD CRABS (Kent, OH), BLUE OTHELLO (Cincinnati), and COLONEL BLEEP (Dayton). I've got seven-inches from PRETTY MIGHTY MIGHTY and CANDYASS. And it's all coming your way. Check back next Friday.

take care
