  1. Oh geez Jimbo… you should have asked me, I could have provided some alternate versions of a few of those same cover tunes (done with my bands)!

    And another bonus….

  3. So it looks like Jimbo and I both had a similar experience with “Ghost In The Machine.” I also forgot to mention quite a bit about the fashion, etc which went along with New Wave as well as many of the other bands/artists I was into. But all of that was covered quite well by everyone else here! Hey Shambles, you definitely need to check out The Church if you haven’t heard them… great band! Overall, another great Central which I was very honored to take part in!! 😉
