BEFORE FLOUR THERE WAS THE DEMO. It must have cost the band a small fortune in postage because I remember every man and his dog having a copy of that cassette. I lifted mine from the Half a Cow shop. When FLOUR was released it was obvious just how ahead of the curve "the 'feeder" were. While most of us were still trying to figure out how to write a tune, the songs on FLOUR had structure, wit, melody, and dynamics. It became an instant fixture on my new "5 disc carousel CD changer". So much so that later, when the stereo was stolen, FLOUR went with it. We covered 'Bugging' for a while. Sung about wanting to "play second guitar" for them in one of our songs, and recorded a version of 'Over' for Mo Poontang. Top debut.
