Danzig – Satan’s Child – Review

January 1, 2000

A return, full of evil doomy guitar chords, multiple eccentric Danzig vocals, and lots of metal. Far and clear best track is the record’s closer, “13.”

The Frogs – Bananimals – Review

January 1, 2000

This is pedophiliac fetish cult pop with its face in the crotch of social mores. Invite dirty old man boy love into your stereo with The Frogs.

Fastmusic Kills – Review

January 1, 2000

Good ol’ dirty-sounding pop-punk, the kinda stuff the bigger underground labels polish for mass consumption. Here it is in original, messy form, warts and all.

Cinema Beer Belly – Review

January 1, 2000

Not only are there the standard big names and mediocre bands that the label wants you to know about, there’re some bands that you’d not expect to find here.

The Go – Watcha Doin’ – Review

January 1, 2000

The motions the Go goes thru are pretty good ones: Semi-psychedelic, sometimes noisy guitars, fuzz, tambouriny percussion, echoy vocals, decent songs…

Best of Moog – Review

January 1, 2000

Bet you’ve never heard T. Rex’s “Jeepster” like this before. No kidding, really… These tracks are so square, you’ll cut yourself on the corners.

Tulus – Evil 1999 – Review

January 1, 2000

Dissecting the elements of Tulus’ excellence is hard. It must be their unique approach and pure passion for black metal that elevates them to a higher plane.

Tricky Woo – Sometimes I Cry – Review

January 1, 2000

Pealing screams, extendo wah wah run-thrus, drum breakdowns, shameless forays into psychedelia, “Alllllrightssss!” like Jon Spencer, and nonsensical lyrics.

Tram – Heavy Black Frame – Review

January 1, 2000

On Heavy Black Frame, London-based Tram transcend the often-tired mope rock vocabulary to compose one of the most stirring and melancholy records of the year.

7 Seconds – Good to Go – Review

January 1, 2000

With Good to Go, the 15+ year old miracle has gone back to their early days for inspiration, and this record is right up there with the classics.

Total Chaos – In God We Kill – Review

January 1, 2000

“Thundering” metal, vocals that sound like the singer’s trying to shit, and even the punk/Oi! anthems falls flat cuz the guitars are outta tune half the time.

Time Flies – On Our Way – Review

January 1, 2000

Hey, time really does fly. It’s been ten years since Gorilla Biscuits, didn’t you know? Well, neither did Time Flies, from the sound of this record.
