MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #722.449.52!
Various Artists – Run The Road
(Last Gang) :: This clever compilation contains enough speed rap to give you whiplash. And although it may not be socially
responsible to use the sampled sounds of jacked chambers and gun blasts as percussion on “Terror Danjah” by Cock
Back, it’s a Kraftwerkian touch that gets my toe a-tappin’. And speaking of cocks...
Cock – Bagged And Boarded (Absolutely Kosher) :: They have a pierced knob on the front
cover. Their singer is named Lord Phallus. Their guitarist is named Bane Ass-Pounder. Then how to explain that they sound
like Blue Cheer on Valium? I know: They’re KISS in disguise!
– Capture And Release (Hydra Head) :: This spry little lease-breaker has but two tracks, the first of which
runs 18:13 and consists of nothing but anguished screaming over ponderous power chords. The second is 25:03 of more of the
Vagina Dentata Organ – Sex Star (VDO) :: However, Jordi Valls
did this kind of thing much better way back in 1986 by taping copulating couples instead.
Thomas – If Songs Could Be Held (Nettwerk) :: Thought-provoking; heartbreaking; life-affirming;

A Wilhelm Scream
– Ruiner (Nitro) :: Decades from now, if they ever grow up, these kids will regret that they ever recorded
Abigail Washburn – Song Of The Traveling Daughter
(Nettwerk) :: Banjo-pickin’ country music fused with Chinese melodies. Something new under the sun and then some.
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Trews – Den Of Thieves (Epic) :: Wanna know why these hot young
snots got to open for those cold shot spots the Stones?
Be seeing you!
