Miracle Fortress - Raw Spectacle

Goodness. Do I know exactly what is going on in this new video for “Raw Spectacle” from Miracle Fortress’ rather amazing Was I The Wave? No, no I do not, but I surmise that Graham Van Pelt, credited awesomely as “Fire Hands”, is on the run from some local thugs, likely due to his, uhhh, [...]
