Bye bye Barbara, it's been such a good ride to get this far... favorite track is actually Do Something About Her 1,2 but as always, there's so much good here that single choices make little sense.
Favorite track: Barbara rUFO.

For the last 12 years, every four years, I have made music about a mythical place called Barbara Island. This year sees the fourth and last chapter, titled Barbara rUFO.
This year I recalled the UFO Man, Alan Philp, standing out in the mall, sun hat on and wheat bag sign around his neck. We must respect the message that he gave us for decades. When the UFO comes this year, what will it want? Will be a handshake or a spanking? Will we end up gods, or meat Popsicles? This is what Barbara will tell us I hope.
An absolute masterpiece. I purchased the vinyl release of this collection and it does not disappoint. Two tracks are mastered wonky on the vinyl, so I supplemented my need for those tracks with purchasing this digital version. Amazing compositions and sonics. Garry is an unsung master of noise-collage. Brilliant! experimentalfan
