  1. Just found your site today. Was directed to it by a search engine while looking for a song by ESG. Anyhow, I took an interest in your music list from December of last year. You have very, very, good taste in music. I have many of the songs listed. Some are on 12 inch vinyl and some on 7″. Many are on various CDs that I own. Do you remember the song Is It All Over My Face by Loose Joints? How about Treat by Martin Circus? Based on your taste, I think I can name a lot more that I have that you’d remember and like. Anyhow, would love to talk to you about music from the day. Oh, I am originally from Newark, NJ and use to go to the Paradise Garage among other clubs in the reigion. Keep in touch. Alisa
