Barkmarket – Gimmick – Review

February 1, 1994

With mournful wailing amongst the singing, off kilter guitar riffage, head splattering drumming, and schizo lyrics, Barkmarket create cool ‘n queasy tuneage.

Piss Factory – Review

February 1, 1994

Lizzie Avondet’s vocals have that gritty, early Joan Jett feel. Some choruses have haunting, Valium angel sweetness layered like a Twix, with a cookie crunch.

Hash – Review

December 1, 1993

Hash produce a rock ‘n’ roll stew with plenty of diverse ingredients. Their style is animate. Their message is not exactly deep, but positive, none the less.

Seaweed – Four – Review

December 1, 1993

Seaweed are just carrying on good, sharp-edged rock ‘n’ roll with a punky flavor. You can even slam to Seaweed. They have melodic undertones to boot.

The Fighting Cocks – Review

December 1, 1993

From the inspirations of gaudy glam and drunken debauchery comes a band that doesn’t suck: The Fighting Cocks. A long time Boston rock ‘n’ roll favorite.

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.

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.

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.
