Hey, i have one cd by this band which is called "Firetree" which is on
Mellow Records from '96.  I was wondering if anything else was available as

they took their band name from Pearls Before Swine's song....
I had seen reviews that put them in the same camp as The Revolutionary Army

driftier sound while Rev Army are more Dead Can Dance/Current 93 in their
