Kids Don't Follow

Tone Float #7 (March 9, 2011)

My sister Laura Palmer came on the show last week and we played some of our favourite tunes. We have always loved a lot of the same bands but lately she has been giving me grief when I pull out my Wire and Replacements records. Oh well, I love her all the same. We still both worship at the church of the Ramones and that's good enough for me.
