17. have the Oils ever inspired you to take any direct action as part of

any environmental/social activist cause? A bit.  I already leaned that

19. Bones or Giffo? Giffo.  He was pretty much out of the picture by the
time I really started to delve into the MO catalog, but he's on the

footage, he seems like he was more energetic live than Bones.  Tough
choice.  Bones is great too.
20. what forgotten song deserves another spin? Basement Flat
