MEDIA BLACKOUT #442.45!
– Rindhouse (Seed Spitter) :: What a great name for an all girl rock ’n’ roll band! Unfortunately
they don’t exist because I thought up the name myself. But when Kim Fowley steals it, just remember that you read it
– Live At The Gaslight 1962 (Sony) :: He would’ve played at a Starbucks, but there weren’t any
– Rally Day (Estrus!) :: This follow-up to X Patriot includes some good Ted Nugent meets Page Hamilton
singing, some good Grand Funk meets Kyuss playing and some truly atrocious Terry Knight meets Helen Keller sound production
that’s so bad it’s good.
Klein – No Logo (Picador) :: Logos are bad. Unless of course it’s the trendy designer
logo that’s plastered on the front cover of your own overrated, overhyped, and overstocked delete bin book.
Bob Dylan – Live At Starbucks (Starbucks
Music) :: Well he’s a Starbucker, Starbucker, Starbucker, Starbucker star. Oh, yes you are, yes you are.
Billy Joel™ – Always Crashing In The
Same Car (Bye Bye Brinkley) :: Kids, never give your money to anyone who has a registered trademark symbol next to their
name on an album cover.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF
THE WEEK: T.A.G.C. Meontological Research Recordings – Teste Tones (Soleilmoon) :: Still
using Metal Machine Music to buff your brainpan shiny? Then it’s time to upgrade to this sonic tonic that’s
so potent it packs a proviso: “Warning! Care Should Be Taken During Playback Of The Recording As Certain Frequency Information
Could Damage Under-Specified Loudspeakers At High Db Levels.” Yeah, like that stopped me from cranking it up.
Be seeing you!
