Review Revue: R. Stevie Moore – Teenage Spectacular

Where does one begin with R. Stevie Moore? That’s what I’ve been asking myself, and likely what most people ask themselves when faced with the enormity of his recorded output. Well, you’ve got to start somewhere, and since I happened to pull this record off the shelves, and it seems to have been a hitRead more…

Review Revue: Downy Mildew – Broomtree

This is one of those records where reading the DJ reviews from 1987 really makes me want to hear the album (without having to do anything so crazy as, say, buy it on iTunes or Amazon, cheapskate and preferrer-of-physical-media that I am). A lot of tantalizing phrases and references get thrown around here, and youRead more…

Review Revue: Lenny Kravitz – Mama Said

Today’s post doesn’t have much to do with Thanksgiving, but for all of you hanging out with your mamas today, I hope you listen to what they have to say. This might be the most surprising roundup of reviews I’ve encountered in my years doing this blog series. I haven’t listened to this album inRead more…

Review Revue: Mark Lanegan – The Winding Sheet

I have a confession to make: I am just now listening to Mark Lanegan’s solo debut, The Winding Sheet, for the first time. I know, I should probably turn in my Seattle Rock Card (where did I put that damn thing, anyway?). I’m 38, I’ve lived here for 13 years; I have no excuse. OfRead more…

Review Revue: Snooks Eaglin – Baby, You Can Get Your Gun!

The moral of today’s post is an old one: Never Judge an Album By Its Cover. While not incredibly well known, especially to the College Radio DJ set, Snooks – known in his hometown of New Orleans as “The Human Jukebox” for his vast repertoire – was a most accomplished blues guitarist and singer. Eaglin’sRead more…

Review Revue: 10 Years After the Goldrush

I often have very little to go on with the more obscure releases I cover on this blog series, but there’s almost no info out there on Constrictor Records and their 10 Years after the Goldrush compilation – at least in English (and my high school German is not enough to help me out onRead more…

Review Revue: When People Were Shorter and Lived Near the Water – Porgy

Hey, it’s another Shimmy-Disc release! Apparently I have this unconscious attraction to their catalog. When People Were Shorter and Lived Near the Water is one of those bands whose name I’ve noticed (how could you not?) and admired for decades, but I don’t believe I’ve ever heard them until just now – except perhaps inRead more…

Review Revue: VA – Rutles Highway Revisited

Leave it to the musical pranksters at Shimmy Disc (Review Revue all-stars, to say the least) to release a tribute compilation to a joke band. The Rutles (note the pronunciation lesson below) were a Beatles-mocking vehicle created in the ’70s by Monty Python’s Eric Idle and Neil Innes, which ended up having a longer careerRead more…

Review Revue: Wendy O. Williams’ Ultrafly and the Hometown Girls – Deffest! and Baddest!

Obviously, my parents did way too good of a job raising me, as I have pretty much no familiarity with the woman who, according to the Internet, was “widely considered the most controversial and radical female singer of her day” – Wendy O. Williams’ day being more or less the first twelve years of myRead more…

Review Revue: Lucinda Williams – Lucinda Williams

It’s always a good time to celebrate Lucinda Williams, but now is an even better time than usual: She just released a new album, Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which seems to be universally adored and is currently in rotation here at KEXP (she’s still got her spot in M). This album hasRead more…
