JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #433.35!
Ian Hunter – Rant (True North) :: “Still Love
Rock ’n’ Roll” is Ian’s greatest song about rock ’n’ roll ever. That’s right, even
better than both “All The Way From Memphis” and “The Golden Age Of Rock ’n’ Roll,” combined.
Punx Unite – Leaders
Of Today (Side One Dummy) :: This essential 32-track throw-down admirably posits the position that punk ain’t passé—and
I remember when listening to “punk rock” meant listening to “New Rose” and “Arabs In Harrods.”
Lewis & Clarke –
Bare Bones And Branches (Summersteps) :: An acoustic expedition that shines an intelligent revelatory light into
the heart of life and love.
Fifth – Love As Laughter (Sub Pop) :: The more I listen, the more I dig their sloppy
guitar-driven Faces-meet-Crazy Horse sound and their cunning karmic lyrics like: “Shallow graves and topless babes,
who will judge how you behave?”
Riabko – Before I Speak (Aware) :: I never understood how people could think that Elvis
Presley was black after they heard him on the radio. Then I listened to this white teenage guitar soul prodigy.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: A Second Tribute To Jandek
– Down In A Mirror (Summersteps) :: Imagine Dylan ripped out of his gourd on acid, cutting a trippy tune for
the Easy Rider sound track. Well, that’s what Brother JT has done on his cover of Jandek’s “Message
to the Clerk” and that’s reason enough to buy this compilation. Another reason: liner notes by Bible One
fan Gary Pig Gold.
Be seeing you!
