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.

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.

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.

Riot Act – Review

June 1, 1993

Like a tightly-clenched fist, it twitches and waits for its time. The wound-up and tightly-packed energy source is soon to be released with a smirk.

Slowpoke – Review

June 1, 1993

With all the talent and experience behind each band member in the Western MA grunge/funk band, there is little doubt that they’ll be successful.

The Cinch – Review

June 1, 1993

The Cinch, formerly Livewire (and no, they were never a Mötley Crüe cover band!), is essentially a be-bop party band.

Velvet Voodoo Dolls – Review

June 1, 1993

The six songs on their pre-release range from solid, driving blues jams, to soulful, hard-edged grit rock, to some seriously giddy, groovy frolics.

700 Miles – Review

June 1, 1993

From melodious, street-level sub-pop grit to hard-edged acoustic R.E.M.ish semi-folk to alternative blues jams with twangy harmonies and congos… congos?!
