Chickfactor – #9 – Review

October 1, 1995

It’s stuffed full of information. Some fluff, but no filler. The “Tour Horror Stories” were very entertaining.

Banana Peel Buzz – Review

October 1, 1995

Somebody in Maryland wanted to give opinions on new albums and interview a couple of bands. I’m happy to see coverage of the indies, but do it right.

The Reveals – Reading – Review

October 1, 1995

The album EFA takes you right to the active volcano’s orifice, smears ritual body paint all over you, and prepares you to make a human offering to the Sun God.

Kepone – Skin – Review

October 1, 1995

Imagine Alice in Chains (vocal harmonies) butt-fucking a speedier Big Black, not out of queerness, but just because they were there.
