For me at least, I’ve found that album in Broken Social Scene’s 2003 sophomore record, You Forgot It In […]

In 1969, psychedelic folk musician Jim Sullivan released U.F.O., his first album. Six years later, in 1975, he disappeared into the desert outside of Santa Rosa, New Mexico, never to be seen again.
