Radiohead – at Venus – Review

September 1, 1993

The young and dramatically sexual vocalist, Thom Yorke, sang with such energy and emotion that he was drenched in a glistening sweat after the first song.

Bone Dry System – Review

September 1, 1993

The production is professional without sounding like Ratt; the vocals go beyond the settle-for-Seattlesque sound, with bright, almost Bo Deanish harmonies.

Grind Ring – Review

September 1, 1993

I was instantly kicked in the teeth by the powerful vocals. At 4:30 in the morning, that’s quite an accomplishment.

Heretix – Review

September 1, 1993

They recently signed on the bassist to Left Nut (and old school punk rock fave), and, drum roll please, get signed to CherryDisc.

Lobby Magnets – Review

September 1, 1993

These guys have that toss-your-head-from-side-to-side energy. What they lack in flash, they more than compensate for with catchy hooks and overall fun.

The Dots – “The Model” – Review

September 1, 1993

I like it, I’m not sure why. The promo pack had cut and paste reviews that informed me that nobody gets these guys. I don’t feel better, just equally stupid.

Velvet Voodoo Dolls – Review

September 1, 1993

Joe’s for that gritty, honest voice that leads you through the songs. Calli’s got that feathery, angelic sound that gives hope. The two opposites mix well.

Skunkjuice – at The Vertex – Review

June 1, 1993

The beat styling of J.T. Main courses blood-pumping rhythm through the veins of their first song. Scott Francis roars low, guttural melodies of “Daisy Chain.”

Mocha Java – Review

June 1, 1993

Their tasty blend of blues, jazz, funk, bluegrass, and folk (not to mention a dash of psychedelia) is a delicious switch from our regular brand.
