JEFFREY MORGANíS MEDIA BLACKOUT #432


JEFFREY MORGAN’S MEDIA BLACKOUT #432.34!

Iron Butterfly
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida (Atco) :: Miles Davis, eat your heart out.

Princess
Princess (Tony Chaos) :: A clogged overflowing toilet is more melodic.

Discordance Axis
Our Last Day (Hydra Head) :: The final album by these significant screamaniacs is so techno-guttural it makes everyone else on the grind circuit sound like Perry Como in a coma.

Towers Of London
On A Noose (TVT) :: These Rotten imitators rob the Clashbah.

Oxford Collapse
A Good Ground (Kanine) :: Kinda like a Tom Verlaine demo with primitive production values, this one has a haunting heartfelt passion that’s hard to beat. Speaking of which...

Iggy & The Stooges
“I Need Somebody” (Columbia) :: Dylan never wrote a line as good as: “Well, I am your crazy driver. Honey, I’m sure to steer you wrong.”

Bob Dylan
“Hurricane” (Columbia) :: “We wanna put his ass in stir. We wanna pin this triple mur-der on him.” I rest my case.

Faces
“Silicone Grown” (Warner Bros.) :: And neither of them ever wrote a line as great as this timeless poetic gem from Rod The Mod: “You’ve got more front than the Hague museum.”

SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Revolver
Turbulence (Sextant) :: When you’re the son of Goddo guitarist Gino Scarpelli, you’d darn well better be in a band that kicks everyone’s ass and doesn’t embarrass your old man. These brass-ball commandos lay down a heavy carpet of sound that’ll have your windows rattling for weeks. This is rock ’n’ roll the way it’s supposed to be played: with bludgeoning riffs that explode in the air thicker than a barrage of flak bursts over Normandy on D-Day. Velvet is for pocket-pool pansies. Real men pack concrete.

Be seeing you!
