With Come And Back To Shred Your Face

The March 9, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special was dedicated, in the most general sense, to persons, places and things that are, in the most general sense, English, but also to the overwhelming greatness of Doug Hoyer, and also to songs that are short and to the point, and also to songs that meander aimlessly for minutes, hours, or even days.

On the March 3, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we tried out some new catchphrases and celebrated Mark E.

Do we look different now? On the February 23, 2016 edition of the 68Comeback Special, we recruited our very own go-to guy for all things Northeastern Ohio, and at long last, we think we can finally say we like Pere Ubu! So there’s that. There was other stuff, too – it was a pretty good show; you should feel deep personal shame if you missed it – but we’re a little lost in the haze at this point and you’ll just have to take our word for it.

They longed to be close to us, they’ve been wondering aloud to their grandmothers if liking Pere Ubu is possible or even desirable, but they’re looking forward to finding out!
