To which I highly recommend "The Perfect Prescription" from '87 for the driving thrum of "Take me to the other side". (rumoured to be a great album to smoke up with, but whatever.) I also recommend checking out "Taking drugs (To make music to take drugs to)"

To pin down the connection more fully, spaceman-guitarist Sonic Boom is the one playing all that funky feedback through "Suzie" on Fishcotheque. Sonic also steals a line of the chorus for his song Angel. I know the line, but, that would be telling.

What I especially find neat about all of these little connections is how rare you hear about this comradery in the music industry, but Pat's music buddies (and occasional conspirators) were a diverse, eclectic group. I'm not going to go on ad nauseum about it. Anyone new here can always check out the website.

Well, Ed, this is starting to feel like a PSA (You know..."if you'd like to find out more about the Gettysburg Address you can visit you're local library...blah blah blah) so I'll sign off while I can...
