Review Revue: Third Circle – Last Night Was the Best Night of My Life

There’s not a lot out there in Internet-land about Third Circle – or even about their label, Rouska – despite the fact that pretty much everybody at KCMU in 1986 seemed to agree that their debut release was some version of “good.” Discogs and this one other blog post agree that Third Circle was mostlyRead more…

Review Revue: Velvet Monkeys – Rotting Corpse Au-Go-Go

I’ve probably said this before, but this is kind of the perfect Review Revue album. Released on RR favorites Shimmy Disc (see also here and here and here and here and oh yes, over here), featuring members of Half Japanese, partially recorded at Inner Ear studios (okay, that’s more of a me thing), by aRead more…

Review Revue: That Petrol Emotion – End of the Millennium Psychosis Blues

It’s been a couple years, but we have here another release from That Petrol Emotion, this time the band’s third LP – which, being a third LP, is mostly compared negatively to the second. (And I’d have to check, but I bet that was compared negatively to the first. This is college radio, after all.)Read more…

Review Revue: Sparks – In Outer Space

Sometimes I think I’m not remotely qualified to be doing this blog series. (Perhaps you’ve thought the same.) Take Sparks, for example. I don’t think I’d ever heard of Sparks before pulling this album off the KEXP shelves, but they’ve been a band for over 45 years and released a couple dozen albums – includingRead more…

Review Revue: Tom Verlaine – Cover

Yet again, I come to you on this Thursday somewhat surprised. I’ve covered the first two Television albums, plus Richard Lloyd’s Field of Fire, but this is my first time bringing you one of Television guitar genius Tom Verlaine’s own solo albums. Cover was certainly well-loved in the halls of KCMU – if not perhapsRead more…

Review Revue: Animal Liberation

It’s somewhat shocking that I haven’t covered this collection in the first ten years of this series. Not only is it perhaps the most Review Revue-friendly album ever (if you count Ministry, whose Al Jourgensen produced the album and its interstitial material, Animal Liberation features five different artists featured in this series over the yearsRead more…

Review Revue: Utopia – Deface the Music

Okay, buckle up you guys. This is where I usually write a few words to introduce the album at hand, but our friends at KCMU had a lot to say on this particular album, so I don’t want to take up too much space – and by “on this album” I don’t mean in anyRead more…

Review Revue: Thatcher on Acid – Curdled

The Internet doesn’t seem to know a whole lot about Somerset anarcho-punks Thatcher on Acid. (Can you think of a band name that more specifically places a band in time, place, and genre? I sure can’t.) One thing I appreciate about this gig is that these posts often serve as a way to add toRead more…

Review Revue: 10,000 Maniacs – In My Tribe

I figured it might be nice to have a post featuring a band that needed no introduction for a change, so today I bring you In My Tribe, the album that properly launched 10,000 Maniacs into the spotlight thirty years ago (give or take a couple months), where they remained for several years until NatalieRead more…

Review Revue: Sacred Miracle Cave – s/t

If I thought there wasn’t much info online about Saqqara Dogs, they’re practically overexposed compared to the likes of Sacred Miracle Cave. I could just publish the 1990 KCMU DJs’ thoughts on this album without any of my own nonsense, and I’m pretty sure it would encompass the vast majority of all internet-based knowledge onRead more…
