MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #705.430.32!
VCR (Side One Dummy) :: Casio camp music so homofied it makes Xiu Xiu sound like Ted Nugent.
Michael Parks – ...Then Came Bronson
(NBC) :: Isn’t it about time that Michael Parks’ 1969 Zen motorcycle series finally came out on DVD?
Treiops Treyfid – Feelings Of Unreality
(Postfact) :: My feeling is that ‘unreality’ is putting it mildly. Still, this eclectic album does contain “Rolling
Blackout” which is one of the best songs Unca Lou never recorded for Loaded.
The Factory Incident – Red Tape (Postfact) :: The singer sounds
like a flattened cross between monotonic John Lydon and histrionic David Bowie after being plugged by Valerie Solanis. But
that just gives these jangling rockers an authentic punk patina.
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Muggs – The Muggs (Times Beach)
:: Motorcityrocks.com, with typical retarded teenage diction, says these guys “rawwwk.” Ann Arbor Paper, with
typical gushing fanboy sycophancy, says “Danny Methric is Detroit’s Angus Young.” Of course, they’re
both wrong. What we really have here is Michigan’s own Methricphetamine version of ZZ Top with all of the bulwark bluster
and none of the stylistic subtleties. Their suspended animation brand of ’70s arena rock boogie may have seen them slotted
in as a high noon opener for Ted and Aerosmith at California Jam, but I doubt it.
Be seeing you!
