Among the sickly garbage heap that is American pop culture, Mike Garlington is a glimmering beacon of hope. A charmer of both the ladies and the gentlemen, young Mr. Garlington is also a prolific drunk. Mike's punky, folky music is full of the spontanious energy and blatant plagarism that is so popular with the youth of today. Let's salute this brilliant young man and give him the millions of dollars he so greatly deserves. Includes �Daisy Doright,� �Jug of Rum,� �Omah Devoe� and others. As seen on daytime TV! info  photography  reviews   MP3   Photocar!   add to your cart!!!
enjoy a pleasant evening with Michael Garlington.

Together, we can profit from this tragedy.
The Mundanes were there when life began; some believe that they where in fact the catalyst that created life. As they slowly enveloped the world with their hollow love, they spiritually merged with electronic devices to spread their holy message of repetition and sorrow. Girls: these are the lads you want to father your hordes of drooling slave children. Varied instrumental favorites such as  �Circus of Reverb,� �Reocurring Nazi Sex Dream� and �El Disco Del Despair.� Fashionably obscure! MP3  info  add to cart.
