The Telegraph, 19 Golden St, New London
None of these jazzbo reefer addicts have made up goofy names for their combos so here's a long list of performers (bet you'll find some familiar names): Joe Morris, Dan O'Brien, Bob Gorry, Jeff Cedrone, Adam Matlock, Tom Hogan, Jeff Platz, Stephen Haynes, Damon Smith, Matt Crane, Chris Pitsiokos. Next time ask me I'll make some up, like I dunno Soul Icicle or Splatter Corps or Prestige TV. NONE of those horrible names yield results on Discogs, my dudes.
