Another site

Flabdominal the latest band to emerge from the maelstrom of flickering musical therapy seeking individuals who frequent the Nottage area of Roysten by the Sea have been pushed further into obscurantist oblivion with a page in the Band section. Expect downloads etc. soon. Rumours of Simon Griffiths receiving a court order to prevent intentional Whitesnake solos are utterly unfounded.
