The Low Down: Grimness and Misery

Just in case you thought we were getting too happy up here: featuring the music of Mahogany, the Rustavi Choir, Cabaret Voltaire and Nico

image SYNOPSIS Dreary dreary indeed is the motto of today's escapade, in which your Uncle LD plays mixed weirdness from three old favorites and a mostly-a capella men's choir. How does one say "shiver shiver" in Georgian? Now if only one of our friends would send me an mp3 of "Fred vom Jupiter"—how we have searched for this. And with what a heavy heart we bear in our otherwise empty hands. Sigh!

NEXT WEEK: Mystery Date! (We promise!)
