    Wow, that’s pretty cool of you for posting this here. I’ve been a KMFDM fan since the late 90’s. I will probably see them in November since their one of the bands left on the “see live” list.

    Uh, yeah, I’ll be seeing them in November…for the 17th time. I got Opium the last time they re-issued it, not so long ago, and WWIII was their 2003 album and I was never even aware was ever out of print. LOL – this is KMFDM non-news.
