    I have the album Totaled on cd. Also have Superlovexperience on 7″. Great band.

  13. Chris O'Brien Says:

    Great band! I recorded this song as part of a six song demo that included the brilliant “Superlove Experience” I think they got a deal with the tape. The programming was done by Hinterland’s Gerry Leonard who later became Bowie’s Musical director. Garrett “Jackknife” Lee became one of the top record producers in the world. Talent in spades. Great songs!
