JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #783.522.151!
The Cinematics - A Strange Education (TVT) :: For torching a Remington typewriter on the front cover, they get an E. But if it's only
a Photoshop fire, then they get an F for fake.
Big Business - Here Come The Waterworks
(Hydra Head) :: Led Zeppelin crashes into Black Sabbath. Oh, the inhumanity!
Eno - Here Come The Warm Jets
(Island) :: Waterworks, geddit?
Deaf School - "Golden Showers" (Warner Bros.)
:: Warm jets, geddit?
- "Golden Brown" (EMI) :: Ewwww, fergeddit.
Saosin - Saosin (Capitol) :: Memo to muggers: These whiny pushovers have VICTIM written all over them.
Wintersleep - Wintersleep (Labwork) :: So do these guyzzzzz.
The Cicadas - The Cicadas (Roble Rot) :: Huey Lewis goes country!
Sara Wendt - Weightless With Love
(City Canyons) :: Buddhist rock is the Next Big Thing, so get on board before this llama leaves the Potala. Perfect listening
for reading T. Lobsang Rampa or watching Lost Horizon.
Beatnik Beatch - Beatnik Beatch (Noble Rot) :: If you collect album covers with midgets on them,
then this reissue's for you.
- Bloodied But Unbowed (Sudden Death) :: One of
their songwriting credits is: "Vancouver Punk Trad." They wish.
Of Pink - Love Is Dead (8th House) :: Raucously rawer than the Stones on smack but too pussy to call themselves Pink Snatch.
The Rolling Stones - "Torn and Frayed" (Rolling Stones) :: Ever notice how the singer breaks up
and laughs between the words "kick" and "it"?
Carlos - Switched On Bach (Columbia) :: Say, whatever happened to seminal synthesizer pioneer Walter Carlos? I haven't seen his name on an
album in decades.
SIZZLING ROCK GODDESS OF ANY CENTURY: Grace Slick - Period (Grunt) :: "White
Rabbit." "rejoyce." "Two Heads." "Lather." "Bear Melt." "Hey Fredrick."
"Eskimo Blue Day." "Mexico." "Law Man." She's the undisputed all-time greatest female singer-songwriter
in the entire history of rock 'n' roll. And although it's true that she never recorded an album called Period, after waxing her Manhole, she sure should've.
Orson Welles - F For Fake (Elmyr de
Hory) :: Geddit?
Be seeing you!
