The selectors

Some suggestions came directly to my wall: many thx to Ferran Verges from NMER records and festival for suggesting Die Noia Futuriszka “Horizonte de un salon”.

The members of the Lush fan club were fabulous, providing numberful and relevant suggestions. Thank you all for your contributions! + a very special thank you to Darija Uhljeb and Misán Abhórr, for being so involved.
