As Promised, Skid Mark Underpants


Well I'm back. The two of you have probably been wondering where i've been. San Francisco is the answer to that question. I stayed in the presidential suite, checked into a karaoke studio (where my demo of Bryan Adams' "Heaven" was laid down), visited Kayo Books, the Ha Ra Club and Aquarius Records. I'll tell ya, Los Angeles ain't got shit on San Francisco. Well, except its warmer and I like our Amoeba Records better, and probably a dozen other things. But SF is a fun place to visit!

In honour of the trip I compiled a specially themed San Francisco compilation, which I offer to you today. It's a collection of some of the best and worst songs ever written about the town, and I encourage you to play it if yr ever in the vicinity. Besides, this should compensate for the time I was gone.
