i’ve had an import copy of Only Living Witness’ “Prone Mortal Form” since I saw it listed in a Century Media mail order catalog eons ago.  I’d had the original, but this had bonus tracks…so i needed it.

In 2002 I went to the Emissions From The Monolith festival in Youngstown, Ohio just to see Jonah (singer of OLW)’s band Milligram.  Thru that, I became friends with Jonah.

Fast forward to Maryland Deathfest VIII in 2010, where Jonah introduces me to his lifelong buddy Dave.  Dave rules.  I look forward to seeing those guys every year.

Anyway, Dave told me about his buddy Iann moving to my area.  Of course, Iann and I hit it off and became fast friends.  Cut to Iann telling me in passing, “there’s a picture of Dave inside an import version of the first Witness record.”  He had no idea I owned a copy.

I only post this because it all just cracks me up.  How one record can lead you to so many paths, places, and friends.  

And honestly, this isnt even half the story.  One day I’ll write up the absolutely epic tale of how I bought a Rollins Band bootleg video in 1992, that had a random 10 minute live clip of Only Living Witness tacked onto the end as filler (the bootleg dealer loved’m & wanted me to check them out).  That ‘filler’ clip of a band i’d never heard of, would change my life forever.

Until then… here’s the picture from the cd packaging.

Miltown - Tales of Never Letting Go

Bros and bras, this is one of my favorite jams. ‘97 was where it was at. I suggest you get your hands on as much Miltown as you can.

“And now, we would like to do for you a little number that started around New York City. In this number we feature The Apple Jack, The Boogie, The Rang Dang Doodle and The Huckle Buck. We hope you enjoy. This number’s entitled, The Boogie-Woogie.”
