MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #701.425.27!
– Valende (Sub Pop) :: If I were the guy who recorded this dire disc of dissipated diarrhea, I’d hide
behind a girl’s name, too.
– Halfway Gone (Mountain Lo-Fi) :: On the first track he tries to kick like a mule. Then he perverts to form
and dresses like a queen, it’s a real schlemiel deal.
Ivy – In The Clear (Nettwerk) :: For good Portishead call Ivy.
Anton Barbeau With The Bevis Frond –
King Of Missouri (Bongo Beat) :: Had Elvis Costello actually been a ’70s punk rocker, he just might’ve
recorded this loose and vibrant affair that’s part wordy Dylan and part nasally Lennon.
Rockethouse – Weapons Of Mass Distortion
(Kanine) :: Funky fuzztone music that’ll have you cage-shakin’ in your white go-go boots.
Forever Changed – The Need To Feel
Alive (Floodgate) :: Every time I see a back cover photo of four short-haired kids in T-shirts I cringe because they
all invariably sound the same: lame. Remember what I said about bands that are deficient in the personality department? Well,
you can add these guys to the list.
Second – Altitude (Floodgate) :: What, another back cover photo of four short-haired
kids in t-shirts who sound lamer than lame? Better add these guys to the list, too.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Mardo –
Mardo (House Of Restitution) :: They oughtta give away a free farm-size box of Kleenex with every copy sold because
this is one helluva snotty album whose snooty snout attitude drips straight out of the Punky Meadows Lip Farm. Even Binky
knows that Mardo’s a retro-retardo smash up of everything from Love It To Death and Dressed To Kill
to Cheap Trick.
Be seeing you!
