Welcome All... to Sky Valley. This one will take you down and spin your head around. The ultimate statement by the band that didn't give a fuck about radio play. Upon its release, this album only had four tracks, 1. Gardena and Asteroid and Supa Scoopa. 2. 100 Degrees and Space and Cadet and Demon Cleaner. 3. Odyssey and Conan and N.O. and Whitewater. and 4.
