flac and mp3 links... (100 Watt Head, Botfly, Daddy Longlegs, Fat Amy, Five Day Rain, Gone Dog, Joel Ferguson, Knee Deep Shag, Motherbird, Owsla, Papa Vegas, Rollinghead, The Hannibals, The Verve Pipe, Twitch)

e-mail me at "jpline73 AT gmail DOT com" and I'll give you the login credentials to download. Most of the bands I'm posting have disbanded and their music isn't available that I know of. If you are part of any of these bands and want me to take down these links please e-mail me and I'll remove them. If anyone has anything that you think I may be interested in please let me know. I'm most interested in anything by Chris Bryers (Twitch, Sleet, Owsla, Selling Heaven, Knives Are Quiet, The Hovering Lights, and solo), Craig Griffith (Botfly, Daddy Longlegs, 100 Watt Head, Motherbird, and Griff & John's Afterhours Experience), Joel Ferguson (Five Day Rain, Papa Vegas, and Miles To Mars), & Dave Grant (Confirmation, Rollinghead, & Dead River Drag).

I would love to get any demos or live recordings of The Shaman Riders, The Cuttin' Heads, & Hero Pig. All I have are some songs recorded off the radio (88.9 & 92.1 Lansing stations) and some cd compilations.

For alot of mp3s from various Kalamazoo bands go to Leon's Temple
For mp3s of some Grand Rapids area bands go to furniturecityhardcore
Videos & mp3s from various Flint bands go to takenoprisoners
Info and mp3s for Detroit area bands go to motorcityrocks - 2010-08-18
motorcityrocks - 2008-10-20
