The first volume of the Towson-Glen Arm Freakouts compilation series comes with an 11×17 insert which reprints many of the scene’s major literary works – bizarre poems, essays, satirical works, and prose pieces of many shapes and sizes which all represent a colorful patchwork of radical leftist sentiment, outrageous humor, and obscure philosophy.

Unfortunately, the TGA writing of Sabrina Alano couldn’t be included in either of the recently released TGAF album packages. To make up for this glaring omission, now, for the first time in nearly two decades, Ms. Alano’s awesome work can be re-introduced to the world at large.

With respect to the north County underground’s many other fine writers, I must say that Sabrina Alano is probably my favorite Towson-Glen Arm scribe. Her incomparable, visionary style reached its apotheosis in meditations on everyday life’s hidden mysticism:
