MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #709.434.36!
Band Girls Money (TVT) :: Led Zeppelin and Cheap Trick (“Everybody’s Fault But Mine”) meet Rockpile
and Mott The Hoople (“Superdeformed”) in a fatal four-way! King, this one promises to be a hellacious slobber
knocker, and it’s next!
Desman – Back For More (Sony/BMG) :: Barry Whiteboy looks like Travis Bickle and sounds
like Michael Jacksoff. You were waiting for that, weren’t you?
Ninja Gun – Smooth Transitions (Barracuda Sound) :: Clever countrified
rock at its finest. I laugh every time I hear guitarist Jonathan Coody’s droll delivery when he laments: “My brother’s
pushin’ 30 now and I’m at 25. He’s making smooth transitions meanwhile I barely survive.” So will
– Cloak Of Love (Crucial Blast) :: Five tracks of speedo shred-metal alternate with pastoral passages in 12:46,
which is four tracks and 9:41 too long.
– The Politics Of Dancing (CI) :: The politics of, ooooh, screeching like Linda Blair in The Exorcist.

Front Line is the missing foreign-language link between Medic Lee Roth’s Sonrisa Salvaje and the Stranglers’
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Perishers – Let There Be Morning (Nettwerk) :: Too much time
to think, too little to do? Let me tell you about Sweden: only country where songwriter Ola Klüft has distilled the heartfelt
essence of Pete Townshend, George Harrison, and Roy Rogers into an album of exquisite music.
Be seeing you!
