This’ll take you back –

Got Hello by the Beloved off FilePile the other day and was thinking… But I don’t have Flash…

Or how about Can U Dig it? by PWEI?

I still know all the lyrics to that by heart and it was over 10 years ago. I remember thinking the “Alan Moore Knows The Score” line was really cool till Dave Gibbons slagged it off as pathetic at a signing, and then I was all in a tiz – didn’t know what to think!

Glad you liked it, Darren. I should have said I found it again by searching NTK archives.

China’s under martial law… I always read that line as vaginas under martial law… i’m sure i’m right.
