As Todd Rundgren wrote and sang there is an International Feel to this Kristin Hersh contest, blame the connection on the sentimental me.
The 5 winners of Signed Copies of Crooked are in no specific order:
Gabriel who discovered Kristin and the Throwing Muses while browsing CD's in the Ridgewood, New Jersey library some 15 years ago. He was intrigued by the 'Real Ramona' cover.
He since moved to the West Coast and currently lives in Sendai (Japan) where he teaches English.
As for the 3 living in America winners in this contest they are:
Scott lives in the Central Valley, California.
He happens to be a vegetarian and has been a fan of Kristin for 20 years.
Next Hal, a lifelong Bostonian and fan of the local scene since the 80's.
Also, David in Des Moines, Iowa, a journalist passionate about music, books and films
Last of the 5 Signed Copies winners is Rob
Rob lives in Kildare, Ireland who loves photography.
His favorite book is Catch 22 because he's a walking contradiction, he loves bureaucracy, but hates red tape, hates mushrooms, and envies cheese.
Consolation prize goes to Marc Robbemond in Amsterdam, Holland with an Unsigned Copy.
Thanks to Robin and Scott at The Friday Project without whom this would not have happened.
