Celeste  - Your humble Publisher, Hostess and Proprietor.  

I'm the one that runs this joint.  I do the web design, publishing, editing, artwork and  other assorted BS. I also  decide what goes into the UGM.  If  I were the only one making it happen... there wouldn't be anything happening here.  I thank whatever powers-that-be for all the talented people that do 90% of the REAL work around here and who make The UGM one of the most popular Underground Music sites on the Internet.
