Well, well. What a nice surprise.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:37pm

I was trying to figure out why "Another Night Alone" sounded so familiar -- and then I used the WFMU playlist search (thanks, Kenzo!) and discovered that it was covered by Games when they played my show earlier in the year. A session expertly engineered by the DJ on the air now, I might add.

This Trashman song has been running through my mind for days. Should have known I wouldn't have to wait long before hearing it on FMU.
