While we take care to ensure that all of our advertisers are honest and truthful, we cannot be held liable if you find otherwise. The information in these pages went to press one month before cover date. The views expressed in fRoots are those of individuals just like you; they are not necessarily those of the editorial staff, the product of a sound mind or a horse. Hey, wouldn’t life be dull if we all had the same tastes in music?
