MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #708.433.35!
Ian Hunter –
Rant (True North) :: “Still Love Rock ’n’ Roll” is Ian’s greatest song about rock ’n’
roll ever. That’s right, even better than both “All The Way From Memphis” and “The Golden Age Of Rock
’n’ Roll,” combined.
Unite – Leaders Of Today (Side One Dummy) :: This essential 32-track throw-down admirably
posits the position that punk ain’t passé—and I remember when listening to “punk rock” meant
listening to “New Rose” and “Arabs In Harrods.”
Lewis & Clarke – Bare Bones And Branches (Summersteps) ::
An acoustic expedition that shines an intelligent revelatory light into the heart of life and love.
Laughter’s Fifth – Love As
Laughter (Sub Pop) :: The more I listen, the more I dig their sloppy guitar-driven Faces-meet-Crazy Horse sound and their
cunning karmic lyrics like: “Shallow graves and topless babes, who will judge how you behave?”
Kyle Riabko – Before I Speak
(Aware) :: I never understood how people could think that Elvis Presley was black after they heard him on the radio. Then
I listened to this white teenage guitar soul prodigy.
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: A Second Tribute To Jandek – Down In A Mirror (Summersteps) :: Imagine
Dylan ripped out of his gourd on acid, cutting a trippy tune for the Easy Rider sound track. Well, that’s what
Brother JT has done on his cover of Jandek’s “Message to the Clerk” and that’s reason enough to buy
this compilation. Another reason: liner notes by Bible One fan Gary Pig Gold.
Be seeing you!
