That was cool seeing Mitch Easter. I have been a fan of his music since the early 80s. Lets Active were a great band! I still throw Afoot onto my turntable when I'm in a vinyl mood and it still raises my pulse rate and gets me happy. But right now, Writing the Book of Last Pages is stuck in my head. I'm gonna go have a listen.?
