  1. Well deserved honours for a group of legends I’ve been listening to since they began. A group of legends a lot of us have shared their adult lives with! Congratulations Gentleman, all of those factions and societies from the 80’s would be so proud, especially the “Commence Nuclear Testing At The Western Oval” faction.
