    I’d like to extend a warm handshake to the creators of this website. Well done sirs! Popularity explosion is lurking round the corner with an indecently eager smile.

    All luck for your site, and I agree with every word about the Shakey Rays.

    But it’s Rob Fleming, not Rob Gordon. 😉

      In High Fidelity (the book), Rob Fleming is a British guy who eventually discovers an indie punk band. In the movie, Rob Gordon is an American who discovers an indie punk band and eventually starts Top Five Records. 🙂

      Thanks so much for your wishes. Keep reading!

        Serves me right for not looking that up before writing in. 😀

        Nice work, keep it up.
