  1. Well done, Ian & Mark!
    it’s so nice to listen to your banter about the people, experiences, songs & personal impacts. sorta like the 3rd dimension not easily done in text.
    it would be so nice if we could all get in a room and just rap about this! i’m sure we’d all learn to hear new perspectives of this band and just vibe out together!
    however, i know, easier said then done; so in the meantime i look forward to your next episode! (no pressure lol!)
    sincerely,
    Kevin

  2. Very cool to finally hear your voices after all these years – you forgot to mention that the best part of that Cologne gig is when someone in the audience shouts “Louder!” at Pete and he replies with a full-on pummeling blast of feedback. Looking forward to the next episode!
