Peach – II – Review

December 1, 1995

Another band from Seattle that sounds just like a band from Seattle. I’d throw some names around, but I don’t really want to.

JRZ System – Review

December 1, 1995

Imagine a somewhat pissed-off Joe Satriani leading a ferocious hard-funk trio. Sometimes angry, sometimes melodic, but always in the groove.

Joe Satriani – Review

November 1, 1995

Filled with amazingly beautiful vocals and heartfelt lyrics that shine through despite the low-fi production. There are no guitar solos either.

Boss Hog – Review

November 1, 1995

Boss Hog lies somewhere between Jon Spencer’s former and current projects, Pussy Galore, and the Blues Explosion’s fuzz-tone Stones-flavored funk grooves.

Black Light Rainbow – Review

November 1, 1995

As soon as the needle hits the vinyl it’s an all out assault on the boundaries of rock as we know it, spitting out incoherent lyrics with earsplitting energy.

Stanley – Clobbered – Review

November 1, 1995

The sort of band that badly Xeroxed cut-and-paste ‘zines love to ramble on about. Their sound is too Seattle to be sludge-punk, but too Chicago to be grunge.

Down – NOLA – Review

October 1, 1995

New Orleans groove, Sabbath-influenced megaband. I smelled label money, psycho deathneck-loving mediocrity on this one, but I was pretty wrong.

Supersuckers – Sacrilicious – Review

September 1, 1995

With 14 songs of corruption, their tongues are planted firmly in-cheeks and their chops are mighty. Masters of punked-up, powerchord-soaked rock ‘n’ roll.

Black Number Nine – Review

September 1, 1995

With x-members of glam gods Fighting Cocks, Black Number Nine shed that slut-rock groove to expose solid, bluesy rock.
