    in the June of 1944, D-Day occurred as well as the beginning of the Holocaust. Just food for thought.

    The first two albums were pretty decent attempts to revive Rodan, but 4GP and Anahata.... on par with Rodan. Of course, stylistically very different. Also, look at stuff like Rachel's, Shipping News etc. It just leaves us to wonder what Rodan might have become had they not split for unknown reasons.

    Actually, Yikko's link is pretty sick - awesome band he posted. Love Jo44, but as someone who was too young to see them live, I agree with his sentiment.

    @jamesismynamo "The band's name was inspired by a variety of factors, chiefly the date of correspondence between erotic fiction writers Henry Miller and Anaïs Nin; the month also coincided with the birth of Mueller's mother and the military service of Meadows' grandfather." - http://www.allmusic.com/artist/june-of-44-p168496/biography
