Howdy, dig your blog!

was going to send this to you an email instead of a comment but I couldn't find a contact email addy on the site.

Can you pls send me an email, I'd like to send you a press release for the new (Australian based) PPC Records compilation album, The Second Dose.

There may be some tracks on it you would like to review.

Cheers!

George
