Steel Miners – Irony – Review

February 1, 1997

Blue-collar throwbacks to the guys who slaved in the mills and pits all day and then threw back shots all night. They’re characters in Springsteen songs.

Ff – We’re #1 – Review

September 1, 1996

In a world of generically good pop/punk bands, Ff stands apart as one of the most consistently decent bands I can’t think of.

February 1, 1996

16 songs by eight bands. Three of these bands are top-notch. Three are pretty damn good and two… well, I squeezed ’em and didn’t like what came out.

Tub – Why I Drink – Review

November 1, 1995

Sometimes turning it up with an almost-trying-to-sound-catchy-but-not-quite-cutting-it hook, at other times putting me to sleep with draining guitar solos.

September 1, 1995

On Phantom Itch, they expand on the Circus Lupus form, and play rolling post punk in the style of the Holy Rollers and Fugazi. But Antimony is better.
