digable on soultrain in ninety-five

soultrain's bizarre format of getting acts to play live but then playing the recorded version over the top. the host's fearless banality. ladybug's answer to her question signalling the groups days were up. the really pretty spectacular dancing. interesting that jettin apparently was going to be the single, as this was originally aired in march ninety-five, well before blowout's autumn release.
