What started as an idea, went onto a tape machine. The Pink Snowflakes have been recording, purchasing equipment, taking drugs, and expanding their human and equipment components for quite some time now, and have reached critical mass recently with a EP and a slew of live shows in and around Portland. Their influences range from the obvious (Flaming Lips) to early rock pioneers (Hawkwind and Hendrix). You should try them out at least once or twice. The optimist in you will be happy you did. This was the first episode of Live Friday after I took over as the new host.
