As you may have noticed the site was unavailable for the past several days. I’m happy to say we’re up and running again thanks to the fine folks at Media Temple. If you notice anything that isn’t working as it should be, please let me know.

I had to change the RSS feed, so if you want to keep up to date on new posts be sure to subscribe.

Now back to the music…

This mixed tape by Steve Loria is from 1993 and was released at the same time as Chris Hyde’s – Milk & Cookies. The j-card designs for both Deep Space and Milk are my favorite of any mixed tapes. Thanks again to Chris for letting us know that Mike Messex did the artwork on these.
