JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #855.594.228!
Black Stone Cherry – Folklore And Superstition (Roadrunner) :: Wherein one of the
best hard rock bands in America blends the best of Aerosmith and Alice in one timpani shredding session.
Anemo – Stentorian (City Canyons)
:: They’ve got the same pop vocal stylings and 4/4 backbeat of Eurythmics with a heapin’ helpin’ of hard
rockin’ Heart. That I didn’t clue in to this initially means that they’ve got their own thing goin’
– Both Ends Of The Rainbow (MVD Visual) :: Wherein the usual bunch of windbag wankers expound on Bob’s
born again phase—as if the actual records themselves weren’t good enough.
The Dirty Heads – Any Port In A Storm
(Universal) :: These four white guys do echoed dub like it genetically runs through their veins—and who knows, maybe
– Rick Wakeman’s Grumpy Old Picture Show (MVD Visual) :: Wherein prog rock’s greatest keyboardist
hangs up his cape to try his hand at biographical multi-media stand up comedy—but don’t laugh ’cause he
actually manages to pull it off thanks to his prattle-punctuatin’ piano passages.
Mark Berube & The Patriotic Few – What
The Boat Gave The River (KBM) :: I dunno if Mark Berube ever heard Marc Benno’s Asylum Choir work, but this one
sure sounds like he did, right down to the mix’s schizoid stereo separation.
One Second 2 Late – World Time Bomb (Red Ink) :: Wherein
one of the best hard rock bands in Canada blends the best of old Korn and new Korn in one bagpipe shedding session.
SIZZLING TV SHOW OF THE WEEK: Jefferson
Airplane – Go Ride The Music (Eagle Vision) :: This live in the studio session originally ran on NET’s
Fanfare program back in 1969 and contains seven full-length songs from the Volunteers era, including a slow
vamp on their then-current single “Mexico” as well as the elusive “Emergency” which was never waxed
but remained a live staple—plus an extended barn-burning throwdown on “Volunteers” itself. Points deducted
for Jorma’s ever-present swastika pendant. What a maroon.
Be seeing you!
