Vermeulen

I figured the guys from Electric Barbarian would give me a decent roadmap to guide me to the essential crossroads of their music, so I could write some real impressive liner notes about the scales and patterns these freaks use for their music. But they just gave me the record. Oh, yeah, there were some funny smiles too...
