I have to eat, sleep and work too, Lucky. But it is true, there are other Claxon LPs.

Agreed onx. I suggest these sort of requests get ignored. A Darker Shade of Blue have a ban on Anonymous, perhaps we should. Also there's a heck of a lot more taking than giving these days. How about a few more contributions folks? Thanks for speaking up onx.

Tantris said...

Some comments and response to the music would be appreciated also. Probably also worth trying out a ban on anonymous postings.

onxidlib said...

Andy & Tantris, it's certainly worth considering to ban anonymous requests etc.
At least a name to refer to would be appreciated. I will check it out and come back to you soon.
And yes contributions would be welcome as well.

I didn't hear any anonymous requests. ;-)
