Siebren

excellent CD!
I bought this CD without knowing anything to these guys. I just heard some fragments on this website. Buy it - it is excellent music when enjoying a good whiskey at night.

No whiskey required
I bought this cd because I actually know these guys, and just like Steve Messick's "Transmissions from Planet Bass", this is one groovy disc. I especially like "Theme from Dr. Chicago". Although I enjoy a good whiskey now and then, it's definitely not required when listening to The New Bob Brigade. My only complaint is that they haven't recorded another disc. So, buy this cd so they can afford to record more!
