When Welcome greeted us with its first full-length, Fetish, this year it fired on all cylinders. Townley's part in particular was a fine how-do-you-do. Balls to the wall(rides) and fast plants that require fleet-footed precision were the order of the day. And he's an amazing artist—the way he leaves his brushstrokes on every wall in town, we guess he'd have to be.
