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…

Review Revue: Saqqara Dogs – World Crunch

Saqqara Dogs seems to be yet another band that absolutely delighted a certain subset of nerdy college radio DJs (and soon-to-be-incredibly-influential New York Times music critics – you’ve got to love any band that forces the Times to refer to someone as “Mr. 66″), but didn’t seem to make much of a splash beyond thatRead more…

Review Revue: Spacemen 3 – Recurring

Recurring is the final album by Spacemen 3 — released after their parting of ways — and the third album of theirs I’ve covered in this space (see also here and here). I could talk about the band’s acrimonious split and the genesis of Spiritualized, or the fascinating details behind Spacemen 3’s Mudhoney cover andRead more…

Review Revue: Sonic Youth – Sister

It’s been great to see all the celebration of various independent radio stations around the country this week. Part of what makes this series so fun for me is digging through the scribblings of college radio DJs who were on the air around when I was discovering some of my favorite music through college radio.Read more…

Review Revue: ‘Steve Albini’s Band’ – Budd

When I first ever heard of Steve Albini’s provocatively-named band between Big Black and Shellac (after they’d ceased operations) I was already a fan of his, so I just kinda rolled my eyes and thought “ah, there goes ol’ Steve again, ruffling feathers and pushing buttons.” Being a fairly sheltered and privileged young man, thatRead more…
