Thanks Birdsong.

This weekend I pondered for a moment what Metamatic really was. It's not very clear from the pictures but John does a very good impersonation of the painting machine on the album cover.....after all he wanted to be a machine. biglaugh

Only geniuses like John can think of these ideas and titles. Well done John now for the Polar Music award!
