Oh, Say Can You See...?

Pilot Light holds a homecoming of sorts for John Paul Keith (and greets his pals in Stateside), as Mike Gibson reports in the Music Feature. Meanwhile, Eye on the Scene tries to envision a reformulated American Plague, a brand-new Agent Zarkov, and a Barley's without Doug Beatty.
