Re: The stairway to heaven leads to (A Long Plastic Hallway reviews)

As producer and maybe 5% writer of Wuxtry’s “a long plastic hallway”: 1) This is the first song written by my bandmate. I’m extremely proud of her! My first song at 16 was total crap, and took months to write. Finishing a song, for me, was a triumph in itself. This song is way better and took a week...

I'm assuming it's something to do with the layered vocal tracks? ... Yes and no. In...

I haven't thought of that song for ages. The more references to west coast unsigned greats of the 90s, the better.
