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…

Review Revue: The Jazz Butcher – Big Planet Scarey Planet

This is the third album by The Jazz Butcher I’ve covered in this blog series (see also here and here), and I’m embarrassed to admit I have yet to properly spend time getting acquainted with this long-running English band’s deep discography. Something tells me that the next several years will be a great time toRead more…

Review Revue: Sylvia Juncosa – One Thing

I had never heard of the idiosyncratic Los Angeles guitar player/singer/songwriter Sylvia Juncosa before pulling this record off the KEXP shelf, but I’m glad to have made her musical acquaintance, however late I am to the party. And it seems my timing is pretty good, as just last year she released her first album inRead more…

Review Revue: Kirk Kelly – Go Man Go

I’m happy for Cubs fans, of course – how could you not be, even if their unofficial mascot, Bill Murray, weren’t one of the most beloved humans alive? – but I gotta say, that “Go Cubs Go” song? I’m not gonna miss hearing that one on NPR every day, I tell ya. I mean, IRead more…

Review Revue: Chris Isaak – s/t

I can’t think of many one-hit wonders who have careers with the length and breadth of Chris Isaak. If you were alive in the late ’80s, the song (and video!) “Wicked Game” is probably what comes to mind when you hear Isaak’s name. That song was on his third album, though (a testament to WarnerRead more…

Review Revue: In the Nursery – Köda

In the Nursery must be one of the longest running and most prolific projects I’ve covered in this series, having released albums almost annually since 1983 (they’ve slowed down a bit in recent years, with only six full-length releases since 2005). The idiosyncratic (is anyone else in the world classified by Wikipedia as neoclassical dark wave/martialRead more…
