“It’s March. At least on the coast of  Central California, we’re starting to get a taste of spring. This is a brilliant time of year in this part of the Golden State, the birds are out and bees have begun buzzing from one flower to another. The poppies are popping and beer tastes better in the sunshine. It’s a heady season full of promise and this year it is even sweeter because the first three vinyl rereleases of the Mother Hips catalog have been sent and received. We now have Back To The Grotto, Part-Timer Goes Full, and Shootout – all on vinyl – in our record collections. It’s kind of like being in the Columbia House Record Club for Mother Hips fans.”
