7-INCH BITCH #2

THE DESPERATE BICYCLES “The Medium Was Tedium” b/w “Don’t Back The Front THE DESPERATE BICYCLES “Smokescreen” b/w “Handlebars” These singles go for a fortune when you can find them so I was happy to see that they were being reissued/bootlegged. Happiness short lived. These sound like shit. Save your money. I wish I had. [Refill] […]

GIBBY HAYNES 7" EP

It’s a musical pairing that makes more sense than anyone would think, this Gibby to the mic with Jack White playing guitar like it’s 1984 and Psychic... Powerless... Another Man's Sac is fresh meat. Most listeners will flock to the modified cover of Adrenaline OD’s “Paul’s Not Home”—a witty read of the comedy punk song […]

There's points […]

If you […]

AMPHETAMINE REPTILE RECORDS Is Back (for 3 days)

About twenty-five years ago, Tom Hazelmyer started his own label, Amphetamine Reptile Records. He had a band of sorts, Halo Of Flies, more of a project at that point than an actual band but he wanted his records released, so he did it on his own. Printing and constructing the record jackets himself using a […]

DINOSAUR JR. Farm CD/LP

The cover blurb calls them a “legendary rock band” and cites a Rolling Stone assessment—“The glorious noise every garage band dreams of making.” Hardly. Crazy Horse aspirations continue for a band that came to prominence in the murky pre-Seattle era, back when every band under the sun was seduced by A&R scouts. At the time, […]
