I wouldn't worry too much. The web site is rife with transcriptual errors. This is not David's fault or nothing...it just seems that no one really cares to correct the mistakes. It's much more fun to read the lyrics and smugly say to yourself...HA! There are too many "ands" in that line!

Buffalo, eh? Try scooting over the Canadian Border to Sloth in Niagara Falls, Star Records in St. Catharines, or Station To Station in St. Catharines. Some early JBC on display here, but don't even bother to ask for an import of Illuminate (Obviously won't be a problem for you)...I spent six months on their ass and they kept pushing Spacemen 3 on me. (Which is okay, 'cause they're really great to chill out to.)
Or if that doesn't work, email to Woodroes@AOL and tell'em your a big
of theirs and -- by the way -- would their lead singer consider selling you his extensive collection of JBC memorabilia including rare CD re-releases of Gentlefolk and Big Questions and what not. They're from Youngstown (Lewiston-Porter) just up the I-190...

Matt, who's expecting some very nasty email from utfp any day now.
