JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #895.581.214!
Sum 41 – All the Good Sh**: 14 Solid Gold Hits 2000-2008 (Aquarius) :: I’ll
say what these smug dealers are too pussy to spell out on their album cover because they’re afraid of losing valuable
Wal-Mart sales: This juvenile generic angst rock is shit.
Johnny Winter And… – Live (Columbia) :: I tossed this one on the old Victrola
and 30 seconds into the first paint-peeling track, “Good Morning Little School Girl,” the graft-takers at Toronto’s
City Hall had passed a noise ordinance banning me from ever playing this album again. Can’t say I blame ’em.
Doug Cox & Salil
Bhatt – Slide To Freedom 2 (Northern Blues) :: A passel of peacenik paeans primarily played to power
your interplanetary pud into place!
Synthetic Elements – Trashed Out Paradise (Filthy Beast) :: Anyone expecting a Moogster
mash because of the band name will be surprised to find an ambitious pop-rock offering which has some early Alice aural theater
lurking in the background. Next time, they should let their inner Coop out.
SIZZLING PLATTERS OF THE WEEK: Jeff Jarrett – King Of The
Mountain (TNA Home Video) :: I hate monopolies, especially big bloated ones that ruthlessly swallow up the competition
and then callously humiliate former employees by publicly blacklisting them from work on live television. So when professional
wrestler Jeff Jarrett put his money when his mat is and bucked the odds by successfully forming his own competitive brand
of Total Nonstop Action fifteen years ago, he ended up getting the best revenge. This whopping 12-hour, four-disc set which,
unlike previous wrestling compilations, alternates every match with a lengthy in-depth interview segment that tells the entire
story of Double J’s guitar slingin’ career from his early years of toil and turmoil in the regional promotions
to now. Augmented by a wealth of rare archival footage, this veritable half-day history of the wrestling profession is essential
viewing for anyone who’s a champion of free enterprise—especially since Hall Of Famer JJ’s back ruling the
roost at AEW—which is why King Of The Mountain is the retro-wrestling DVD of the week.
Be seeing you!
