RAMLEH Circular Time COVER

RAMLEH Circular Time 2xCD

Comparisons are odious, but what the hell are you gonna do? Ramleh is one of those bands who has no business being unknown to the ears of experimental music fans. What I mean to say is, Ramleh have been releasing music for 35 years, all of it great and unique unto itself and mostly unheard. […]

THE FALL Sub-Lingual Tablet CD

The closing scene of Michaelangelo Antonioni’s Zabriskie Point shows a building exploding. For six minutes or so, in super-slow motion, and from every possible angle. Fast-moving it isn’t, but it is fascinating, watching refrigerator doors and dust and bits of wire and pipe hurtle towards the camera, arcing and twirling and floating and falling in […]

Saved By The Bell: The Collected Works of ROBIN GIBB 1968-1970 3XCD Box Set

The wonder of Robin Gibb is a mix between why there are so few who know and appreciate him outside the Bee Gees and simultaneously why those people give a shit. For me, Robin has always occupied a somber, longing kind of place. This is not music that will motivate you to go out on […]

2015 Q1 Report on OBNOX

SPLIT BRAIN EXPERIENCE Vol. 1 w/Christian D. Breit and Maximal E. Meizer reporting: OBNOX, aka Lamont “Bim” Thomas, has been making records since all but the hippest millennials were rocking out with the Wiggles. Seriously, do a cursory internet soul-search and you’ll see names such as V3, Bassholes, This Moment in Black History, Puffy Areolas, […]

WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS Nothing Here Now But The Recordings LP

William Burroughs never seemed especially at ease with the times he was born into, but perhaps his legacy of work settles into the current cultural construct even more uneasily than ever. Ironic, since his work effectively presaged an era of disjointed communication, ubiquitous meaninglessness, virulent madness and media dominance of the sort we are living […]

KILLING JOKE The Singles Collection, 1979-2012 2xCD

Would it be too much to presume at least a passing familiarity with band so as to forego an unnecessary and tedious recitation of their particular attributes? I think not. If you have any awareness of your culture at this point, you know who they are and what they do. So I won’t bother mentioning […]

WHITE FENCE LP/CD

Originally released in 2010 on Make A Mess Records, Tim Presley’s White Fence debut quickly went out of print, became very desirable and started to fetch outrageous amounts of cash. Fortunately, the folks at Drag City have reissued this vinyl only gem on their new imprint God?. If you’ve been smart enough to pick up […]

WAYNE HANCOCK Ride CD/LP

If you’re a fan of authentic country music, then you’re going to love Wayne “The Train” Hancock. He’s got more Hank Williams Sr. in him than Hank Jr. and Hank III combined. In fact, Hank III has given his blessing and covered a couple of Wayne Hancock songs and acknowledged the importance of Hancock keeping […]

HUGH CORNWELL Totem and Taboo CD

You can take Hugh out of the Stranglers—hell, that happened a long time ago—but you can’t take the Stranglers out of Hugh, it seems. What’s this? An assemblage of stripped-down slashing guitar numbers with that same peculiar pop-ish sensibility and snarled sarcasm that made first-gen Stranglers such an unearthly delight—but as performed by a guy […]

OBLIVIANS Desperation CD/LP

It’s hard to believe that it has been nearly twenty years since the last proper Oblivians release. 9 Songs With Mr. Quintron came out in 1997 and solo releases from Greg Cartwright and Jack Yarber, as well as the sporadic reformation of Compulsive Gamblers, followed a year later. As the 00s arrived, those still hoping […]
