Luna – Penthouse – Review

July 1, 1995

Luna is the brainchild of former Galaxie 500 frontman Dean Wareham. Most of the songs continue in Luna’s established vein of Velvet Undergroundy pop.

Lint – “Too Few” – Review

July 1, 1995

Only one side, wrapped in pink cellophane. The other side was glued to a Tony Bennett 7″. “Too Few” sounds like a mellow Hole song.

Hullabaloo – Torn – Review

July 1, 1995

More indie pop, with some tasty guitar thrown in. If the Go-Go’s were still around, and had an entirely different line up, they’d be Hullabaloo.

Hissanol – 4th and Black – Review

July 1, 1995

Hissanol is Andy Kerr (iving in Amsterdam) from NoMeansNo and Scott Henderson (living in Canada) from Shovlhed. They sent 4 and 8 track tapes back and forth.

Hayride – Elfin Magic – Review

July 1, 1995

Once past the insipid indie rock title track, this was a wild ride. Tight, fast and ranging from hardcore grrrs to emotional punkpop, this guitar-driven release borders on psychobilly.

Hagfish – Review

July 1, 1995

Three songs from …Rocks Your Lame Ass and “Shark.” Yeah, they rock. Yeah, they’re produced by the ALL guys.

X-Cops – at Mama Kin – Review

July 1, 1995

They’re not GWAR. They seem like they don’t wanna be. So relax a little, okay? Although the show was enlightening, it wasn’t perfect.

Grover – My Wild Life – Review

July 1, 1995

My Wild Life is strong and pleasing. If I’m forced to choose, though, “Yeah, I’m Dumb” and “Hole In My Eye” are the most infectious.

Ron Geesin – Land of Mist – Review

July 1, 1995

19 tracks of sonic landscaping, too short to assume the dubious “ambient” label, yet so inwardly oriented and self-contained, “songs” doesn’t work either.

Roadsaw – $1,000,000 – Review

July 1, 1995

Call it metal, call it hard rock, at its core, Roadsaw’s sound is like granite. They ain’t even afraid to throw in melody and cool hooks within the grooves.

Radio Zero – Review

July 1, 1995

The lead vocals, by Christian Fall, can get as gravelly as Rancid’s, or as melodic and tough as British punk of the ’80s, kinda like The Clash sans accent.
