Wow that MRK1 track was really cool. Maybe this means I should check out more of Planet Mu's or Mu-ziq's recent output.

hey ike, thanks. check out the low-cost "ziq200" 2cd planet mu label comp, should be a good start.

I didn't know Kev Hopper had released an album about garlic. I loved Stump. Back in 1991 or so, Stump and Siouxsie got my teen-aged self out of top-40 music.

all kev hopper's solo stuff is now available for free download on his website. forgot the url, do a google thingy.

William Swan, Jr.:
Actually garlic is a member of the lily family; not the rose family. Am I the only one who finds this interesting? Here goes.
Onions, garlic, chives, leeks, shallots, green onions, asparagus, sarsparilla
Almond, apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach, plum, prune, wild cherry, apple, crabapple, loquat, pear, blackberry, boysenberry, dewberry, kenny loganberry, raspberry, quince, strawberry, rose hips

thanks for the insight, william. i think "stinking rose" is a nickname for garlic cuz a bulb sorta looks like a rosebud, and it stinks.
