MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #695.416.17!
– As Ray Ray (Pookie) :: Blaxploitation movie parody gets bogged down in an overlong barrage of falsetto ballad
Sum 41 –
Chuck (Island) :: If you kids want me to take your anti-war songs seriously, then don’t destroy your credibility
by calling your publishing company Rectum Renovator Music. Yeah, that’s the sign of a mature, informed adult.
K-OS – Joyful Rebellion (Astralwerks)
:: Phinally, a rapper who can actually sing hip-pop and isn’t aphraid to mix saxofones and ambient symfonic music with
his phat beats.
Roxy Music –
Viennalle (Mainstream) :: Recorded in December 1973 during the Stranded tour of Austria, this listenable audience
recording contains rare live versions of “Street Life,” “Amazona” and “Psalm.”
Mobb Deep – Amerikaz Nightmare
(Jive) :: If these Cube wannabes were half as rich as they pretend to be, they wouldn’t have to pimp lame copycat records
like this to make a buck.
Artists – Take Action! (Sub City) :: Putting a free copy of a suicide prevention book
on this double compilation is an admirable notion, but doesn’t the inclusion of a band called ‘Murder By Death’
send a mixed message?
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Quintron – The Frog Tape (Skin Graft) :: I dunno what’s scarier:
a guy in Louisiana spending half an hour recording frog sounds on a cassette while playing a Wurlitzer and laughing into the
mic; a record company actually releasing it; or me giving it a Sizzling Platter Of The Week.
Be seeing you!
