MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #470.80!
J.R. Ewing – Maelstrom (Dim
Mak) :: You’re not dreaming in a prison shower, this unreasonable metal screamonstrosity sounds just like Ozzy ’n’
Alice ’n’ Ig, oh my!
The Adored – A New Language
(V2) :: Ramonesish perky percolating power pop guaranteed to purify your aural palette.
– Alter (Hydra Head) :: Think their band name is clev—oh, sorry, I already used that one-liner. Well
then, suffice it to say that these 14 tracks have enough remixed industrial menace to make Farmer’s Market sound like
Pete Seeger on valium.
Flattbush – Seize The Time (Koolarrow) :: I’m
told that these hammer and sickle-sporting screamanicacs "bring Filipino political rage hard and raw to the States."
Good thing I live in Canada.
Grant-Lee Phillips – nineteeneighties
(Zoë) :: This is the on-the-nod acoustic album Eric Clapton would record today if old Spikehand were still strung
out on smack and had a craving to carve up 11 antique melodies ranging from "Wave Of Mutilation" to the anal sex
classic "Love My Way."
Toni Basil – “Mickey”
(Capitol) :: And speaking of anal sex classics, she’s still the only woman to offer to take it up the ass on Top 40
Led Zeppelin – In Through The Out Door (Swan Song) :: What did
you think the title meant?
Prince – “Raspberry Beret”
(Paisley Park) :: What did you think “She walked in through the out door” meant?
Zeppelin – “Since I’ve Been Loving You” (Atlantic) :: What did you
think “I open my front door, hear my back door slam” meant?
– “Back Door Man” (Elektra) :: Yeah, yeah, yeah! Priddy neat, priddy neat! Priddy good, priddy
Greeley Estates – Far From The Lies (Record
Collection) :: Music to take prison showers by. Careful with that soap, Eugene…
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Blood Brothers – Love Rhymes With Hideous Car Wreck (V2) :: Are
you ready for a quirky spastic cabaret cross between the Clash and Marilyn Manson? How about Suicide and Diamanda Galás?
Either way, the hills are alive with the sound of stuck pig music.
Be squealing you!
