    Hey! Me too! “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union…”
    and “I’m just a bill” and “Conjunction Junction, what’s your function”…

    Do you have any recordings of “The Migraines”?????

    Thanks for playing!

    There have been rumors, but to the best of my knowledge there are no recordings of the one-and-only appearance of the Migraines.
