Hello yall. Things have been a little slow over here at Running Downhill, as usual, but we just wanted to reassure you that this down time hasn’t been going to waste. Our good friend Josh “Birdzilla” Honn recently started OH WOWEE!, a weekly updated blog dedicated to the writing about and sharing of out of print records.

Cheers,

Running Downhill Staff

So much so, in fact, that they erected this building and dubbed it the All Belgians Are Equal Club in 1921. Actually, I was surprised to learn that Chicago had a Belgian population at all. They apparently liked to clean things as well.
