JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #434.36!
TSAR – Band Girls Money (TVT) :: Led Zeppelin and Cheap
Trick (“Everybody’s Fault But Mine”) meet Rockpile and Mott The Hoople (“Superdeformed”) in
a fatal four-way! King, this one promises to be a hellacious slobber knocker, and it’s next!
Shawn Desman – Back For More (Sony/BMG)
:: Barry Whiteboy looks like Travis Bickle and sounds like Michael Jacksoff. You were waiting for that, weren’t you?
Ninja Gun – Smooth
Transitions (Barracuda Sound) :: Clever countrified rock at its finest. I laugh every time I hear guitarist Jonathan
Coody’s droll delivery when he laments: “My brother’s pushin’ 30 now and I’m at 25. He’s
making smooth transitions meanwhile I barely survive.” So will you.
Genghis Tron – Cloak Of Love (Crucial Blast) :: Five tracks of speedo shred-metal alternate
with pastoral passages in 12:46, which is four tracks and 9:41 too long.
Sadaharu – The Politics Of Dancing (CI) :: The politics of, ooooh, screeching like
Linda Blair in The Exorcist. The politics of Re-Flex suing your sorry screamo ass for defamation of reputation, uh-huh.
Is this message understood?
– En La Linea Del Frente (Side One Dummy) :: This blistering Barrio-rockin’ Spanish version of their
power-punk album On The Front Line is the missing foreign-language link between David Lee Roth’s Sonrisa
Salvaje and the Stranglers’ “Sevierge.”
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Perishers – Let There Be Morning (Nettwerk) :: Too
much time to think, too little to do? Let me tell you about Sweden: only country where songwriter Ola Klüft has distilled
the heartfelt essence of Pete Townshend, George Harrison, and Roy Rogers into an album of exquisite music.
Be seeing you!
