Flesh Columns

The Flesh Columns were from Ottawa in the '80s but it would be a bit unfair to lump them in with the scores of generic punk bands pumping out records at the time. The Flesh Columns had elements of post-punk and sounded more English than Canadian, and they avoided the usual breakneck speeds of hardcore. Moody stuff.

I never was a big fan of the Nestle Crunch bars around Halloween-time. So I definitely share the sentiments of track 4.

getting baby ruths or baseball cards was like hitting the jackpot on halloween. Didn't mind the Crunch bars. HATED the fake sweet-tarts. They looked like horse pills or something that should of been in grandma's purse.
