MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #702.426.28!
– The Carl Stalling Project (Warner Bros.) :: Two, I say, two volumes of the greatest animated film
music ever heard in the history of the human eardrum!
Dan Band – The Dan Band (Side One Dummy) :: Even Bowie at his cokehead best didn’t
dare cover “I Am Woman” on David Live. But if Dan’s live romp is any indication, maybe he should’ve.
Any of this gettin’ through to ya, son?
Jones – Chuck Amuck (Farrar Straus Giroux) :: This good-natured glimpse behind the scenes
at Termite Terrace by one of the world’s greatest directors is more fun than an Illudium Pew 36 Explosive Space Modulator.
Pay attention, boy! I’m cuttin’, but you ain’t bleedin’!
A Change Of Pace – An Offer You Can’t Refuse (Immortal)
:: No it’s not, and yes I can. Nice boy, but he’s built a little too low to the ground!
Over It – Silverstrand (Lobster)
:: Oh, so you three guys actually like having a bland singer without a shred of personality in his voice? Well, that explains
everything. You’ve gotta keep your eye on the ball, son!
Rush – Rush (Moon) :: Don’t laugh. Xeroxed bands like the
previous two could learn a lot from songs like “Finding My Way” and “In The Mood.” Eye!
Full White Drag – Everything Will
Fall One Night (Inter-Flight) :: So could Canada’s plodding answer to the Stranglers. Ball!
Mel Blanc – That’s Not All
Folks! (Warner Books) :: This delightful memoir covers everything from Mel’s “Cu...camonga” days on
The Jack Benny Show to his heavyweight reign as Looney Tunes’ voice man supreme. Eyeball!
SIZZLING CLAGHORN OF THE WEEK: I almost
has a column there, son! Joke, that is.
uh-b’uh, uh-be seeing you!
