MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #717.444.47!
Bobby Love – Rare Herbs
(Funky Delicacies) :: The freakalicious flute king of New Orleans funk is back on track to cream the scene clean with this
musky collection of vintage tracks from 1974 that’ll have your gal dropping down to play one too.
Of London – Towers Of London (TVT) :: Memo to publicity: The next time you mail out a
press package, remember to put a copy of the record in the envelope. No wonder Reznor left.
– Discovering The Waterfront (Victory) :: “My Heroine.” Worst drug song ever.
McKeown – We Will Become Like Birds (Nettwerk) :: There’s a gag here somewhere
about one in the hand or two in the bush, but I’ll be gosh darned if I can find it.
Weapons – Free In The Streets (Defend) :: Synthesized grandeur with a bombastic basting,
this would be the result if INXS hired Jim Morrison.
– You Are Too Much For The Human Heart (Soul Tay Shus) :: If you’d like to hear one of the most stirring
voices in the history of soul, then pick up this exemplary testimonial that was recorded between 1961 and 1970.
Lewis – Jerry Lewis Sings! (Decca) :: Schlock-a-bye your baby.
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Wolf Parade – Wolf Parade (Sub Pop) :: “Shine A Light”
lifts its title from Exile On Main St. and its opening riff from “Get Back.” Then Sam Kinison joins Pere
Ubu for a vocal rave-up on “You Are a Runner And I Am My Father’s Son.” But the kicker is “Disco Sheets,”
which is about as close to a Number One In Heaven outtake as you’re likely to get at this late date.
