    One Of My Favorite Bands Of The 80's And I Miss The Horns.

    My sister actually first exposed the Femmes to me when I was about 15 or 16 years old. Ever since then, they remain one of my favorite bands. I remember seeing them at UC Irvine, CA. They were bigger than No Doubt, who opened for them. I sure miss that Mr. Gano. The horns of...

    Country Love And Death Songs

    "I gave her a push, I gave her a shove, I pushed with all my might, I pushed with all my love. I threw my daughter down a bottomless pit - She was screaming as she fell, but I never heard her hit."
