roon564: Was fortunate to have seen the FS show at the Beacon Theatre in the fall of 1993 (or 1994)
Nabby: Fighting Clowns is really special --and great cover art
Tabacco: Did you guys ever consider doing something with Monty Python or creating something that could be more easily understood by the British. All my connections with folks from England and Australia have never heard of the FST.
