JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #351


WILL YOU BE MY JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #351!

Stan “The Man” Musial
1920-2013 (R.I.P.) :: “'Get eight hours of sleep regularly. Keep your weight down, run a mile a day. If you must smoke, try light cigars. They cut down on inhaling. And one last thing: Make it a point to bat .300.”

Grand Funk Railroad
Born To Die (Capitol) :: Best album title ever!

Russ Kelley
Crazy Shades Of Blue (Ark Road Music Productions) :: What with Valentine’s Day fast coming around the clubhouse turn and all, you could do yourself a whole lot worse than get the jump on things by giving your significant druther this ten pack of thoughtfully persuasive and slightly pensive romantic paeans. That’s because Russ has the kind of ragged black coffee and unfiltered nicotine vocal delivery that just oozes been-around-the-block sincerity. It’ll also have you reaching for a pack of industrial-strength Halls Mentho-Lyptus which, unfortunately, aren’t included with the sticker price.

Johnathon “Spammer” Krick
Hey! My Name Is Johnathon And I've Got Something Important To Say (SPAM Email) :: “Her hart of profile disordered her ragged; eagle sought and could not resent in witticism concerning not stupendous. Signed with my peg, cogent with my life pity, this gout will abstain bathed in a peninsular, unsinkable pretender.”

And you thought I overwrote.

SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Brad Mackeson
1945 (self released) :: Check out the big brain on Brad!

On side one, his eclectic audiophonic vision admirably mixes Elliott Murphy’s edifying song writing skills with Bob Dylan’s harp-fuelled sedan delivery via Ian Hunter’s smart street legalize and bearded Bruce Springsteen’s early toqued anthemic epics.

But then, just when you think you’ve figured out what his stripped-down singer-songwriting game is, Brad abruptly turns the tables on you with a pseudo-psychedelic second side that takes all of the above elements and then seditiously squeezes them into a Beatlesque mellotronic tonic as filtered through Randy Newman and the Rutles.

All this and World War Two?

Lana Del Ray
Born To Die (Interscope) :: Best album title ever!


Be seeing you!
