JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #434


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?

Los Casualties
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!
