Psyche is such a durable style of rock music. These guys really nailed the sound -- no treble!

DJ MS does sound like he needs a glucose boost.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25am Guido from Cologne:

Some rain was good for having the air dust-cleaned, since i was doing varnishing work withot having a decent workshop. But right now I'd apprecciate if the sun would break through.
