hot snakes     (last update: January 2008)
so yeah, after seeing them on the suicide invoice tour, i spent way too much time looking for stuff on the hot snakes.
i enjoyed what i found so much that i felt like passing it on to friends and family, etcetera etcetera.
i don't steal or post anything i find, just a link (unless you've got an old print article you wrote and you'd like it posted).
if you've got anything i should know about, my electronic mail address is mjmst74 at gmail dot com.
