Saw them back in '02. Sugarfoot was drunk as fark and would get about a line and a half into a song, and then would give up and wander around the stage or plop down on the drum riser. Chet Willis wound up just stepping up and doing all the vocals and crowd work himself. I got the impression that this wasn't the first time this had happened.

/RIP, Junie. Take that ride...

This is cool. I didn't expect to find a clear copy of one of their album cover photos. I expected worn out cardboard
