my friend, alan, met my dad in the pit at an Exodus concert

I record bands for cheap. Check it out.

Feel free to visit my empire, my kingdom, my playground, or my slap in the face of popular music.

Through the studio I work with a lot of young bands. I'm noticing many kids coming into the underground scene have no idea about some of these older and absolutely semiole bands that had a huge influence on me. Of course I feel that is a shame although I'm sure most of them couldn't care less. But hey, if you like WHN? you'll have to accept the fact that WHN? wouldn't be what it is if I hadn't spent the better part of my youth listening to The Cure and Weird Al.
So I've decided to come up with my own Suggested Listening List. I threw on a few greatest hits compilations for convenience' sake because if you don't already know about a band then getting a hits collection is a good way to start. Even though Bruce McCoullough says, "Greatest hits are for little girls and housewives."
