THE CRIMEA

IT’S HERE

Lot’s of you, including myself, have received their signed copies of Tragedy Rocks today. Gotta love “Howling At The Moon…” and all the other great tracks. It’s released on yet another “home grown” label, “Klutz Inc”, reflecting the entrance in the credits of everyone from (long awaited recognition for ex-crox) Rich and Dan to the new nutter with the big hair, and even I’m in em (thanks, whoever put me in there. I am not worthy). So I figure it’s time for some proper credits round here, click the red button for a load of sucking up. More info on the album will be pouring onto this page by the hour, in a well disguised effort to merely get the entry count up.


The Big Big Thankyous
