Adam Ant – Wonderful – Review

March 1, 1995

Adam Ant’s unique vision still spans from the sublime to the ridiculous. The album’s patchy, but worth picking up, if only for the kooky lyrics.

Dirt Merchants – Scarified – Review

March 1, 1995

From the first tortured chords of “Bullfight,” you can feel the raw energy blasting off of the silicon. They switch moods like a schizophrenic girlfriend.

Deadsunn – Review

March 1, 1995

Mountains of guitars, a dash of techno/industrial keyboards, and some dark lyrics – a winning combination.

Deadguy – Work Ethic – Review

March 1, 1995

Hailing from NY, Deadguy blast out anger-ridden social knowledge. “Running with Scissors,” the best song of the three, is a brutal force to be reckoned with.

Culture of Violence – Review

March 1, 1995

Standard metal with dumb lyrics and horrendous production, but there’s something in here that could be something, given time.

Wargasm – Review

March 1, 1995

Wargasm has been a success story for metal bands: A die-hard local following, consistently heavy albums on Massacre Records, and a video on Headbangers Ball.

Stompbox – Review

March 1, 1995

Erich from Stompbox bailed, so the bassist is filling his slot as vocalist.

Pegboy – at Mama Kin – Review

March 1, 1995

Pegboy is no more punk rock than Duran Duran. It’s ’90s homogenized rock, filtering out all the rough parts to bring you something sterile.

Fat Bag – at Axis – Review

March 1, 1995

Super-funk drumming with percussion on the side, jazz guitar, stand-up bass, records scratching, three ethereal saxophones, and a trumpet. Now that’s FAT.

Threadwaxing Space Live – Review

March 1, 1995

This is indie music from back when that meant something. A compilation of bands performing live at the Threadwaxing Space in NYC ’93-94.

My So-Called Life – Review

March 1, 1995

“Alternative” music to a sensitive fifteen year old. Sonic Youth and Archer of Loaf saved me from hating the whole thing, but that’s just me.
