Back from the dead - not by popular demand, but because they're too old to hear the screaming - "No, no no!"

Roach Motel, Gainesville, Florida's legendary punk gods, have returned for one final slab of hot vinyl - I mean poly-silicone carbonium, or whatever it is the kids are using to make records these days.

Also in the Roach Store are an assortment of white-hot releases from the best and worst that Florida has to offer - The Drug Czars and the Trash Monkeys. Featuring ex-members of Roach Motel, the Eat, Broken Talent and Harry Pussy in assorted evil combinations, these disks are steamin' like a monkey in a microwave.
