MUFA is still MUFA but they are relocating to New York City. The track on
the compilation (on Gayshoe records!?! whatever that is...) is Endopiag off
1994 cassette-only release and they've come a long way since then...
If anyone on the group has a chance to catch this band they should. They're
amazing. The sound is totally unique.

They had a EP in the works with Backbeat records but called it off, maybe
because they were looking for greener pastures.

Once again, miss them at yr own risk. Their stuff is the shit.
