Martin Rev – To Live – Review

February 2, 2004

Seeing as how I really didn’t like the last Suicide album, I didn’t have much hope for 50%-er Martin Rev’s latest release, To Live.

The Residents – Eskimo – Review

February 2, 2004

Part faux-ethnomusicology in-joke, part indictment of capitalist consumerism, part creepy fun-time freak-out, this album has had people scratching their heads since the mid ’70s.

Foetus – ¡Male! – Review

January 28, 2004

A re-release of a series of live shows from the early ’90s. The version has Uncle Jim at his most rock-star, a period right before he had to dry out or die.

Killing Joke – Review

November 5, 2003

75% of the ’80s poli-punks have gotten together (drum duties by Dave Ghrol, who must be psyched!), and retained the power and edge they had all those years ago.

ohGr – SunnyPsyOp – Review

October 29, 2003

Ohgr and his Skinny Puppy cohorts have been consistent in exploring new technologies & options, but he’s pared down the songs into better-digestible forms.

Headcase – Crosseyed Rabbit – Review

October 29, 2003

Crosseyed Rabbit has a rougher texture, adding some choppy guitar and analog synths to the mix, distorting the drums here & there, generally making a mess.
