JEFFREY MORGAN'S MEDIA BLACKOUT #791.530.161!
- Into The Night (MVD Audio/Metal Mind) :: Poland's answer to Phil Collins-era Genesis isn't nearly as dire a disc
as you might think because the music is quantumly heavier-and that's always a good sign.
The Haggis - Soapbox Heroes (UFO) :: With a band handle like "Enter The Haggis," you just know
that it's got to be chockablock fulla the hottest and heaviest synth 'n' shredded guitar rock 'n' roll this side of Boiled
Outlaw Social - Dry Bones (self-released) :: Cheerful funky
fiddle folk music that sounds as if it was recorded in the Dust Bowl days of the great Depression.
Nile - At My Table (self-released) :: And this banjo-fueled feminine folk rock sounds like it was raised
on the right acoustic side of Led Zeppelin III's tracks.
- Aspirant Sunshadows (MVD Audio/Music Fusion) :: Let one of rock's most spiritual adherents gently lull you into

disc by one of the modern masters of the blues. Bonus points for covering obscure selections like Dylan's "Everything
Is Broken" and making them sound even hipper!
SARCASTIC PLATTERS OF THE WEEK: Ed
Sanders - Sanders' Truckstop & Beer Cans On The Moon (Collectors' Choice) :: Proving that there's
just no justice in the rock 'n' roll world, Fugs founder Sanders failed to shake some chart action on these two early '70s
satirical broadsides, which contain irreverent acerbic send-ups of every known socio-political sacred crow from here to infirmary.
But don't blame Ed; instead blame an insensate society for not recognizing that insightful shit-stirrers like "Henry
Kissinger" and "The Maple Court Tragedy" (aka "Polaroid Spread Shots") were just slightly ahead of
Be seeing you!
