    Here are a few tracks- about a parkway, a volcano and a couple of cities. Never been to any of these, but hopefully someday..

    BTW it's not so grim.

    Apart from Widnes.

    Widnes has a gypsy problem, whereas Runcorn is full of scousers.

    Widnes had first pick.

    No video for this, but In The Jungle is hard as nails

    "the jungle" is at 43rd and state according to the lyrics, but I'm not sure which city. Must be either Milwaukee or Detroit given where they were based... ??

  • I've been around for a while here but never posted... This seems like a good time...

    I'd advise to skip Dimona haha today there is literally nothing to see there - even the members of the Tonistics moved to another city...
