stumbled upon a cassette tape in the basement...


stumbled upon a cassette tape in the basement... a cassette tape? I do not think I have the technology to play such a thing okay... maybe an old Sony Walkman is buried in the rubble

Demitri... who else drew us in and made us move? the Ultraworld Productions blew away the standard Fever gatherings Bass Rush... it was all so long ago I can not recall if I could hear this tape I am sure I would be flooded with more specific memories music from the outside can be so misunderstood techno is as vast as any form of music heavy metal all may sound the same to an outsider just as all punk may sound the same to an outsider just as all reggae may sound the same to an outsider music often goes misunderstood

wow!
get this... in an effort to try and fact check to see if Loni Fisher wa
s also part of Fever I see this
