    Trying to find my old band mate Mark Dziak who appears on tracks 8 & 11. Anyone know his whereabouts?

  • Fine debut album on the ironically short-lived Permanent Records label. This was re-released as “Early Spanic Boys” on Rounder. Used CD’s of that version can be had for about $2 plus shipping from Amazon. (At least a half a dozen copies as of this writing – grab one while you can!)
