Have you seen my dogbunny?
I was going to do a post on this obscure band from 1989, Hippodrome, when I discovered this, the entire album at Motor City Rock: Hippodrome - Dogbunny. Think REM, Grapes of Wrath or the Feelies and you're partially there. So check out a couple of tracks and head over there to download the whole album.
Hippodrome - Henry
Hippodrome - Foggy Notion (VU cover)
Also discovered that one of the members, Chris Richards, is still out there making music. Here's a link to his site where you can stream a bunch of his music.
