Iggy Pop – Lust For Life – Review

September 1, 2009

This documentary carries a buncha footage from 20 years ago with Ig, some choice Stoogeliness, and interview footage with guitar player Ron Ashton. It’s great.

Throttlerod – Pig Charmer – Review

July 1, 2009

Beholden to the rubbery overdrive David Sardy pushed through, Barkmarket, and various ’90s production work with Quicksand, Orange 9 MM, and Cop Shoot Cop.

Kylesa – Static Tensions – Review

June 1, 2009

Ridiculously rhythmic throb full of great songs and boiled over energy surge. The innerlocked double drummers and meshed guitars work like a big pumping heart.

Zero Boys – History Of – Review

June 1, 2009

The Zero Boys were a got-damn fantastic punk band from the second generation nation, after the mid/late ’70s shit hit the (few) fans and the dis-ease spread.

Blood Ceremony – Review

January 1, 2009

Dreamy, dirt-gaze doom with female vocals, ethereal flute, and spooky organ. Blood Ceremony owe a dept to black & white horror movies from the pre-rock era.

Bionic – Black Blood – Review

January 1, 2009

Tense, wound-up, rocked-up gunk to draw in anyone with the a taste for the Who/Yardbirds ’60s Mod nerve through the MC5/Stooges/Simply Saucer/Devo ’70s.

Plastic Crimewave Sound – Review

December 1, 2008

I still place these guys as gobbling Pere Ubu’s pre-LP stuff, as well as other crude-aggo-outsider shit from the fair city of Cleveland when Carter was President.

Grady – Y. U. So Shady? – Review

December 1, 2008

Stomping electric blues growl that smashes the rough-cut stuff Fat Possum has championed into the beer joint where Motörhead covered ZZ Top.
