Review Revue: Nina Hagen – In Ekstasy

All of the recent celebration of fallen heroes is right and just and important, but how about we take a moment to laud a ground-breaking, mind-bending, genre-exploding genius who still walks among us? Nina Hagen is one of those restless, multifaceted artists whose career and catalog can be intimidating.  With 15 albums over 35 years,Read more…

Review Revue: David Bowie w/Queen Latifah – “Fame 90″

Bowie. What more can I say? I certainly don’t have anything to add to the conversation that hasn’t been shared much more eloquently a thousand times already. (Including, I’m sure, a thousand or more versions of the preceding sentence.) A huge loss has occurred, but it’s been inspiring to see the outpouring of love andRead more…

Review Revue: Spacemen 3 – Dreamweapon

This is another record that Janice kindly documented for me before the record collection got packed up and moved to the New Home. After this I’m going to have to go in and pick out some more record covers to cover, so I sure hope the vinyl’s all been unpacked. I’m excited to see theRead more…

Review Reue: Erik Lindgren – Polar Yet Tropical

The name Erik Lindgren was not familiar to me at first glance (nor, for that matter, was the name of the currently-more-famous celebrity poker player Erick Lindgren), but it turns out I have heard his work before – and even covered it on this blog. Lindgren has lived all over and been affiliated with manyRead more…

Review Revue: The Cure – Disintegration

How appropriate that I should be blogging about this album on the very week KEXP (formerly KCMU)’s vinyl library is being disintegrated, the records removed from their dusty shelves and boxed up to be transported to the shiny, sexy new home. (I hope you guys are careful with those little paper labels!) I look forwardRead more…

Review Revue: That Petrol Emotion – V2

It seems the thing people at KCMU most wanted to talk about regarding this 12″ single by the Northern Irish band (with an American singer) That Petrol Emotion was the graphic statement on the back of the record regarding the strip searching of female prisoners at Armagh Prison in Northern Ireland. I think there areRead more…

Review Revue: Died Pretty – Doughboy Hollow

After a quick, bleary-eyed perusal of the Australian band Died Pretty’s Wikipedia page, it occurs to me that an in-depth story of this band could almost act as an overview of “alternative” music in the ’80s and ’90s. The band seems to have tried on many different sounds and approaches (and many, many band members)Read more…

Review Revue: The Dickies – Second Coming

Despite their being named after my favorite brand of pants and the fact that I loved me some poppy punk rock music in my early teens, I don’t believe I ever got into The Dickies. Maybe they were just a little too goofy for me, or maybe I was so busy with the output ofRead more…

Review Revue: Willie Dixon – Hidden Charms

American treasure Willie Dixon would have turned 100 this year. As it seems must be the case with even the most revered and successful blues musicians, his life had its highs and lows; sometimes those were two sides of the same coin, from having his songs covered by some of the most popular bands inRead more…

Review Revue: The Dream Syndicate – The Days of Wine and Roses

I’m actually feeling like a pretty bad music nerd right now, because somehow I’ve never heard The Dream Syndicate‘s debut album, The Days of Wine and Roses, which the Internet seems to agree is one of the most important albums of the 1980s (and when the Internet agrees on something, you really should sit upRead more…
