Church Of Thee PVC Resurrected - Sermon One

While we are on our hiatus we're gonna try and keep you entertained with some stuff from the vaults.

Back in the summer of 2011 we started a run of monthly shows for the GaragePunk Network. An hour each and concentrating on the musical vibe of their network they were a little less eclectic that our regular transmissions.

We're not sure if they are still available anywhere so thought a resurrection might be in order.

Here's the first one, we'll continue with them while we are taking a break and then contine to share them when we're back, there are only thirteen of them.
