  1. Welcome back, Glenn, and thank you for the heads up! The first comp is sounding very good as I type this. Dropbox works well here. Thanks for starting my weekend off with a bang.

  2. Yeah! You can't keep a good man down. Thanks for starting up again Glenn, thanks especially for the email alert. The Art Brut got me off to good start, what a great theme for the new blog! Dropbox works great, I'm embarrassed to say I've never used it before, guess I'll check out the service now. Thanks again.

    1. Sooo glad to see you back. As always, your first comp looks great. I am still undecided about the future of "Time on My Hands" but if Dropbox seems to work well it might be the impetus I need to get going again.

  3. Great to have you back, Glenn! Great Comp, and the direct download is cool.

  4. Thanks for this. I like the "Special Guest" at Maxwell's citation. Coincidentally, I was at Maxwell's to see the Fleshtones and Peter Buck joined them for a number. Was it "When the Night Falls" by the Eyes? As it happens, it was Ira Kaplan (YLT) who turned me on to the Fleshtones in 1979. Speaking of "Special Guests," you can find Lenny Kaye on the Fleshtone's newest album, Brooklyn Sound Solution, an excellent album. Anyway, glad to have you back online.

  5. Thanks for soming back! Would have been a huge shame for B.I.T. to totally close shop.


  6. Glad to see you back.
    Good luck with this new Blog//

  7. I just discovered your blog!! So cool!!
