MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #517.145!
Leo – Nightmares (Dream
Makers) :: Welcome to their Nightmares, I think you’re gonna like it. I think you’re gonna feel like
listening to this angst-riddled album.
The Future Kings Of Nowhere – The
Future Kings Of Nowhere (307 Knox) :: Just like the Kingston Trio, only faster and bloodier.
Jansen – Today’s Remains (Black Hen) :: Finally, a country album that cuts through
the current commercial crapola and digs deep to mine the core of quality workmanship.
Soundclash – Street Gospels (Side One Dummy) :: Street garbage that makes me lift my
leg and do the pissant shuffle.
Eve To Adam – Queens To Eden
(KDS) :: Track one is a banal blooper about popping pills. Track two is a pooped popped-up power ballad. The result is an
easy double play that retires the side and leaves the rest of the album stranded in the on-deck circle.
Trash – Going Way Out With Heavy Trash (Yep Roc) :: Jerry Lee Lewis soaks the Cramps
with spo-dee-o-dee wine and gives them a butane flame job. Mucho recommendo.
– Andorra (Merge) :: Ethereal electronics which soar like a hot air balloon escaping from a Fripp & Eno
prisoner of pop camp.
Mister Mann – December Looms (self-released)
:: A guy who looks like Willem Dafoe and sings: “I become the rapist from your past.” What are the odds?
SNATCH PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Gore Gore Girls – Get The Gore (Bloodshot) :: Not since the
recently reunited Cycle Sluts From Hell has there been such primo pseudo-primitive, boob-bouncin’, ball-bashin’,
power-pop that’s more Funicello than a squirtin’ spread-eagled beach blanket quim quench and tuffer than Tura
Satana layin’ a patch over your chewed-off and spat-out knob.
Be seeing you!
