FRIENDS OF LUCA BRASI CD single.

I like the Friends of Luca Brasi... it would be fair to say I like them a lot; so much so that after catching them live and kicking at a crowded out 12 Bar Club in Denmark Street one Friday night a while ago (I actually reviewed that gig for ZANI - go to: www.zani.co.uk/music/26-friends-of-luca-brasi)
