MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #760.499.128!
Metric – Grow Up And Blow Away
(Last Gang) :: Canada’s answer to Eurythmics are back with another breathy passel of passive ’n’ pensive
Paul Reddick – Review (Northern Blues) :: The
superhype sticker stuck on the shrink-wrap embarrassingly brags: “Includes the song ‘I’m A Criminal’
from the Coca-Cola TV commercial!” As if that’s something to be proud of. Have we really come to this?
Young – “This Plug’s For You” (Reprise) :: No shit, Ex-Lax.
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: The Alice Cooper Group – Pretties For You (Straight) :: When this
impenetrable grate bomb first came out in 1969, I found it nigh on impossible to listen to all the way through. But now I
hear it for what it really is: a hip demented psychedelic version of early period David Bowie (“Today Mueller”),
middle period Todd Rundgren (“10 Minutes Before The Worm”) and latter period Monkees (“Living”) that
also predicts the advent of missed period Sparks (“Earwigs To Eternity”).
PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Danzig – The Lost Tracks Of Danzig (evilive) :: Two discs with 13
tracks per side—geddit?—that just might be Glenn Danzig’s greatest album yet. These back catalogue outtakes
cover a whole lotta ground ranging from T. Rex’s “Buick McKane” to David Bowie’s “Cat People.”
But the stellar standout is his sincere sold soul spiritual “Cold, Cold Rain” which is top of the pops on the
Hit Parade Of Hell. 666,666,666 Danzig fans can’t be wrong!
Be seeing you!
