I kind of feel bad omitting this, so perhaps I'll whisper it...but I just never took to BSS. I listened to their new track, and still nothing. Oh well.

The Cons on the other hand, that's good news, thanks for posting!

and my omitting, i mean, admitting. d'oh.

Nice to see the Cons on Daytrotter. Their music certainly shines when it is being performed live. They don't need no fancy remixing.
