In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

Stuck in an airport struggling to travel to/from Europe with all this volcano business (just ridiculous)? Then you should have plenty of time to read Knox Road! What with the sitting in uncomfortable airport terminal chairs and dieting on Sbarro, Chex Mix and those little cartons of orange juice? It’s ok, I don’t blame you for not reading. The hair-clutching frustration and depression probably doesn’t lend itself to perusing music blogs anyway (or DOES it??). So while you watch that awful volcano spew more awful horror dust into the air, here’s what you missed on Knox Road!
