Kryptic Pop Thrills

Spanning time throughout the 1980s.  Dipping tentatively backwards into the 1970s on occasion.  Tipping a hat forward into the 1990s even less frequently.

My bloodstream was unclean in the worst way, and the circle of animals were weeping toxic tears where the orchids grew. This is the story of my 20 jazz funk greats: Kryptic Pop Thrills from 3/20/20 (Genesis Breyer P-Orridge tribute show).
