Caddyshack – Review

December 1, 1996

Reviled by critics in the post-Animal House SNL film backlash of the time, Caddyshack has since taken on new life as something of a comedy classic.

Just Say Noel – Review

December 1, 1996

Nothing terribly holly or jolly here, which is good ’cause misery, depression and weirdness are the kinda things that should be spread out throughout the year.

Ditch Witch – Stavation Box – Review

December 1, 1996

There’s a place where the generations still come together on July fourth just to see who can decorate the best goddamned bicycle and teach the most about sin.

In Dust We Trust – Review

December 1, 1996

The first track, Sheep On Drugs’ “X-Lover (critter remix),” is worth the price of the CD. The other tracks range from long, plodding numbers to dancy ones.

Hardcore Rush 2 – Review

December 1, 1996

Although DJ Hardware has his obtuse and protracted moments, his mix CDs are, for the most part, cutting-edge and insrtuctive.

Glory Daze Soundtrack – Review

December 1, 1996

An original motion picture soundtrack with music by the Vandals’ Warren Fitzgerald and songs by many of today’s favorite punk bands.

Chrome – Chrome Box – Review

December 1, 1996

Chrome combined the motion of the rock backbeat with an otherworldly array of treatments and effects to make a noise that bridged psychedelia and industrial.

Butter 08 – Review

December 1, 1996

A little bit of everything from horn-driven espresso-bongo-distorto schmutz to sampled-samba clean-and-jerk to a diatribe against Simins as a role model.

Beyond the Calico Wall – Review

December 1, 1996

Heavy stacks of echo, sound effects, and backwards nursery rhymes, accurately (if unwittingly) pinning the sounds of acid psychosis to tape.

Bodyjar – Rimshot – Review

December 1, 1996

A quality metal/punk rock sound, emitting shock waves of dual harmonic lead guitars reminiscent of old Iron Maiden.

Blanks 77 – Killer Blanks – Review

December 1, 1996

Unabashed retro punk, a mixture of the “spirit of ’77,” along with the infectious UK and oi-inspired sounds of Cockney Rejects, Blitz, and GBH.
