Just got back from a trip to Las Vegas where I worked on retrieving the files from my late musical colleague Neil Merryweather's studio computer. There was both his Space Rangers III album, the Cosmic Sushi and also the album we were working on together with drummer John Wackerman (see photo) under the name High Coup. I'm right now mixing that very album, and I'm very happy with what it became! So sad isn't here to share it with us. Your memory will live on!
