tremulously this to Listening
Frank Gallup – “Got A Match?”
(Spartan) :: I beg your pardon.
The Midway State – The Midway
State (Remedy) :: The thunderous bathroom beat of Led Zeppelin meets the slanderous bathroom beat off George Michael.
Numan – Dance (Beggars Banquet) :: He’s always been infinitely better than you
ever gave him credit for and this ironically titled album is just one shining example why there would be no Nine Inch Nails
without Gary Numan.
Nine Inch Numan – “Here In My Hole”
(Nothing Numa) :: This mishmash of “Head Like a Hole” and “Cars” exists only in my imagination, but
listen to them both and then tell me it doesn’t work.
– House Of Refuge (Black Hen) :: Spiritual blues to salve your soul. Bonus points for having the chutzpah to
include a ukulele rendition of Hoagy Carmichael’s “Stardust” and think it might fit in. Points deducted
because it doesn’t.
The Slits – Revenge Of The Killer
Slits (SAF) :: Track 2 of this reunion EP is punk rock just like Mother used to hate. Tracks 1 and 3 aren’t.
Slats – Boom Patrol (Latest Flame) :: File under: Beastie surf? Ramones rap? Devo rock?
All of the above.
The Sluts – “Me Ruv You Rong Time”
(KFC) :: The first single from Kim Fowley’s new juvenile jail-bait girl group is a cool coolie rice-paddy pastiche about
working girls one night in Bangkok. Just kidding.
SIZZLING SOFT COVER OF THE WEEK: Pamela
Des Barres – I’m With The Band: Confessions of a Groupie (Chicago Review Press)
:: She’s my little douche coupe, you don’t know what I caught.
Be seeing you!
