Cave In – Antenna – Review

July 27, 2003

Antenna is Cave In on their own terms, doing exactly what they want, how they want it, kicking out a helluva arena/radio rock album.

Catch Me If You Can – Review

July 23, 2003

A retro chase picture that’s about as different from Spielberg’s Fugitive-in-the-future Minority Report as possible. Fortunately.

Blue Sunshine – Review

July 23, 2003

Zalman “Red Shoe Diaries” King stars (!) as a not very bright schmuck whose friends start going bald and killing people.

British comedian Steve Coogan plays Factory Records mainman Tony Wilson, a droll, upper-crust educated huckster whose label launched many important acts.

July 23, 2003

Cradle of Fear is about Kemper, a serial killer hypnotist presently being held captive in an insane asylum. Kemper manages to continue his evisceration spree vicariously through his servant, “The Man,” played with demonic delight by Dani Filth (from Cradle of Filth).

Turin Brakes’ debut, The Optimist, had its heart in the right place but lacked the seductive songwriting that’s essential to good folksy electronica.

July 23, 2003

There’s eye candy, smart, attitude-laced editorial, and coverage of topics you didn’t know you were interested in until you were absorbed in the piece.

Rockpile – #92 – Review

July 23, 2003

Never as bandwagon-happy as Alternative Press or as snobby as Magnet, but as informative and topically broad as… well, almost as topically broad as Lollipop.

July 23, 2003

Interviews with The Donnas, producer Kim Fowley, Apocalypse Theatre, Nocturne, Bile, Graves (ex-Misfits singer), PIG, Opeth, Amon Amarth, Cattle Decapitation.

Prodigy – Martin James – Review

July 23, 2003

Prodigy rock! I mean, they really rock! When they were x-ed out ravers, they rocked! And then some English pansy wrote a book about them, and they rocked!

The Kovenant – Seti – Review

July 23, 2003

The Kovenant are Norwegian, come from a black metal background, and are smart enough to bring in members of Apoptygma Berzerek and Zeromance.
