MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #477.87!
The Gersch – The Gersch
(Tortuga) :: Pinioned pig on the front. Hung human on the back. Pseudo demento guitar rock betwixt.
Win – The Win (Georgeira) :: Geddit?
– The Beat Goes On (Deathwish) :: Dumb keep poundin’ jism to the lame.
Noir – Tower Of Love (My Dad) :: Wouldn’t it be nice if Brian Wilson and the Beatles
recorded a jaunty pop album together?
Brian Wilson – “The Spirit
of Rock ’n’ Roll” (unreleased) :: Wouldn’t it be nicer if Brian Wilson and Bob Dylan actually
did record a song together?
Brian Wilson – Sweet Insanity
(unreleased) :: Wouldn’t it be nicest if the solo album it appeared on had actually been released?
– Nothing That A Bullet Couldn’t Cure (Small Stone) :: The rock ’n’ roll maniacs at Small
Stone are back with another hard rockin’ record that just might be the Best Western-themed album since the James Gang
checked in. But the next time you cowpokes pose for a photo, make sure you lose the sunglasses and toque first, eh?
– Mugimama! Is This Monkey Music? (Ipecac) :: No Lucy, this is cacaloo Ricky Retardo music. It’s also
further proof that yesterday’s insane asylums are today’s independent music labels. If Frances Farmer were alive
today, she’d be signed to Trans-Orbital Records.
– Professor Murder Rides The Subway (Kanine) :: Do you like cowbells? (Say, what if Eno had produced Malcolm
McLaren’s Duck Rock?) Do you like synthesizers? (Say, what if Malcolm McLaren had produced Eno’s Here
Come The Warm Jets?) Do you like Devocals? (Say what?)
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK:
Old Crow Medicine Show – Big Iron World (Nettwerk) :: In the best Masked Marauders tradition,
“Down Home Girl” effortlessly combines the freewheelin’ drawl of Dylan, the hard day’s harp of Lennon
and the moonlight guitar of Krieger. But Dylan never wrote a line like “I swear your perfume baby is made outta turnip
greens, every time I kiss you girl it tastes like pork and beans.” Come to think of it, neither did Jim “Dandy”
Mangrum. And that’s just the first song.
Be seeing you!
