Yeah, I mean maybe it's just their last LP that people discuss the most. That one was the only one I could get hold of on CD - an old Caroline issue. That's pretty damned raucous. I haven't heard much of their earlier stuff, but I want to. I don't know what the legality of sharing a few of their older tracks would be though... that said, I can't imagine the market for old Live Skull records today being especially... ...buoyant.
