Pop Group 3

THE POP GROUP – LEE’S PALACE, TORONTO MARCH 14, 2015

Good things can be worth waiting for. In the case of the Pop Group, the wait was three and a half decades. Think about that for a moment: The last time M. Stewart and Co. graced a stage on the planet prior to the current tour, Ronald Reagan hadn’t even been inaugurated; kids born that […]

WITCH Introduction CD

It seems that with most wells poisoned or dry, the only decent things worth drinking are those that have been left untouched for years. Again, we find this to be the case with Witch, circa early 70s, Zambia, Africa. That's right.  Along with the re-release of their masterpiece Lazy Bones, QDK-Media has truly discovered something […]

MEAT PUPPETS Sewn Together CD/LP

Sewn Together marks a dozen 'Puppets albums. From a catalog perspective, it seems to have more in common with the studio craftiness of 1987's Mirage than the golden, melodic, hard rock of 1994's Too High to Die. Curt Kirkwood extends his patented, fantastic imagery a few feet further out, within a production pallet that emphasizes […]

THE FRESH & ONLYS s/t CD/LP

How many times have you heard this one before? A couple of record store co-workers discover that they're on the same page musically, become fast friends, form a band and never look back. Well, it has happened again. The Fresh & Onlys are part of the current San Francisco psych-garage revival that includes bands like […]

FRANKIE ROSE AND THE OUTS s/t CD/LP

A brief career spanning Vivian Girls to Dum Dum Girls (not much of a span, true), drummer Frankie Rose should seem destined for a solo venture in doo-wop of some sort. Vivian Girls are essentially a doo-wop band disguised as a punk band. Dum Dum Girls are a doo-wop band, not quite disguised. And on […]

SLEEPY SUN Fever CD

Having got the word of Sleepy Sun's second record outing was my wake up call. Oh yeah, them... and I had to see when the band was playing next and where they might be geographically. Well, DOH!! They were on their way (a couple days out) to the small town in which I live, Los […]

JUCIFER Throned In Blood CD/LP

It's been awhile since I checked in on Jucifer. The releases I've heard in the past showed a band that certainly had promise, but hadn't put the whole package together. Unfortunately, Throned in Blood maintains that streak. The sound is a bit of Melvins sludge, but with more of a doom metal feel. On this […]

DEATH RATTLE #2

Though summers can be either harsh or mild the one constant for me has been the overwhelming presence of thrash and death on my sunny play lists. As the recent resurgence of each has been both celebrated (by music fans) and lamented (by music purists) the fact remains that gems are sprouting up all the […]

THE ENDTABLES s/t LP/CD

The only reason I know anything of the Endtables is due to their inclusion on that Bloodstains Across The Midwest compilation from the early nineties. I remember their track sticking out for the simple fact that it sounded more like it should have come out of Los Angeles in the early eighties rather than Louisville, […]
