Review Revue: Garland Jeffreys – Guts for Love

All of my music nerd friends are in trouble. How is that I’ve lived on this earth over 40 years – during which period Garland Jeffreys has released 12 of his 14 solo albums to date (with number 15 due this spring) – and the first I heard of this guy is when I pulledRead more…

Review Revue: Japan – Oil on Canvas

“How is it,” longtime readers of this series might wonder,” that you’ve covered two David Sylvian solo albums, but not a single Japan album? Or even Rain Tree Crow!” You know, I have no good answer to that beyond the fact that this pulling-records-off-the-shelves game is a fickle one. Maybe I spent more time inRead more…

Review Revue: Steve Kilbey – Unearthed

You know, for some reason I’ve had the weirdest feeling like I need to get as far away from the current time and place as possible – or even not possible. All of a sudden Australia circa 1986 is sounding really good. You have to admire the work ethic of Steve Kilbey. If you overlayRead more…

Review Revue: Hula – 1000 Hours

It’s been four and a half years since I’ve talked about Sheffield’s Hula, and there’s still not much about them out there on the old world wide internet – except, perhaps, this charming little amateur doc from not long before the release of their double LP 1000 Hours. Speaking of 1000 Hours, you really doRead more…

Review Revue: Jimmy and the Mustangs

Jimmy and the Mustangs might be lovely people without a bone of misogyny in their bodies (they did, according to their “I swear a member of the band didn’t write this” Wikipedia page, make their live debut opening up for the Go-Go’s), but there are a few things about their debut album, Hey Little Girl,Read more…

Review Revue: Edward Ka-Spel – Eyes!, China Doll

When last we checked in with the music of Edward Ka-Spel – probably best known for his work with the Legendary Pink Dots – word was he might be touring with said Dots imminently.  Well, the tour has come and gone, and it included a stop at our own Chop Suey. Ed helpfully kept aRead more…

Review Revue: Ism – Constantinople

Every once in a while, I post an album from a band that’s been so minimally documented on the Internet that I feel I’m adding significantly to the body of public knowledge about them with one little blog post. This is dangerous because usually I know next to nothing about these bands. Take Ism, forRead more…

Review Revue: Daniel Johnston – Hi, How Are You

If you’re only aware of one Daniel Johnston album, Hi, How Are You is probably that one album – whether you’ve heard it, heard of it, or seen its cover image on a t-shirt worn by Kurt Cobain. As far as I can tell this was the first of his cassettes to receive wide releaseRead more…

Review Revue: The Jesus and Mary Chain – Just Like Honey (12″ single)

I honestly don’t know how I do it. A few times a year, I collect a whole bunch of these album covers – enough to last me for months – and then at some point I grab one and write about it. And yet I often end up with some extraordinary timely coincidences. For instance,Read more…

Review Revue: Paul Kelly and the Messengers – Under the Sun

Where would we be without Wikipedia? And by we I mean both the human race and people who write blog posts as quickly as possible about esoteric subjects. If I were trying to write this series without Wikipedia, most of my information would come from the comments written by the DJs themselves, some highly questionableRead more…
