  1. I think the song "Frogs" was also a single for Hit to Death in the Future Head.

    Hit to Death in the Future Head, In A Priest Driven Ambulance, and Transmissions from the Satellite Heart are all fantastic records. So are Oh My Gawd!!! and Hear It Is. I've heard the newer records, and while they have some good songs, I don't think they are anywhere near as good as the ones that I just mentioned.
