Review Revue: Richard Lloyd – Field of Fire

The main reason I pulled this album out is because Richard Lloyd! Television! Not only did I recently see his legendary old band, sadly without him, but it turns out that the man himself is embarking on a very rare solo tour which will bring him to our own beloved Columbia City Theater this SeptemberRead more…

Review Revue: Eek-A-Mouse – Eek-A-Nomics

I have to admit that after reading up a little bit on the goings-on in the life of Ripton Hylton, a.k.a. Eek-A-Mouse, in the past decade or so, I was unsure as to whether I should be talking about this particular album. But after a little more reading and thinking (and listening), I decided toRead more…

Review Revue: Simple Minds – New Gold Dream (81-82-83-84)

You know, it’s bad enough when there’s a band that I’m vaguely familiar with, that I know I should really check out, but have never quite gotten around to (we see a lot of those in this column). But when there’s a band that I totally think “yeah, I know that band! I like them,”Read more…

Review Revue: Skinny Puppy – Bites

I could have sworn I had covered an album by Pacific NW industrial (Or are they? More on that below.) legends Skinny Puppy in this space before, but unless Google is lying to me, I have not. (And if Google is lying to us now, we have bigger problems than whether or not I’m writingRead more…

Review Revue: Beastie Boys – Paul’s Boutique

In anticipation of our 12-hour comprehensive look at Beastie Boys 1989 album, Paul’s Boutique, this Friday, we thought we’d share with you today a special edition of Review Revue featuring this groundbreaking work and see if the KCMU DJ’s either bought in to the LP’s initial lackluster reception or picked up immediately on its promise.Read more…

Review Revue: Þeyr – As Above . . .

If you’re anything like me (and who isn’t?), the first Icelandic band you ever heard of was The Sugarcubes. If you were a college radio DJ in the early ’80s, though, you might have gotten wind of Þeyr (pronounced “Theyr,” more or less) before the rest of the U.S. got wind to the crazy stuffRead more…

Review Revue: Wanda Jackson – Rock ‘n’ Roll Away Your Blues

I have a confession to make: Not unlike some KCMU DJs circa 1986, I am woefully ignorant of the career and voluminous musical output of Wanda Jackson, also known as the Queen of Rockabilly – or just the Queen of Rock. (Obviously I haven’t been reading the KEXP blog enough, or this DJ El ToroRead more…

Review Revue: The The – Mind Bomb

Matt Johnson’s The The is yet another band (or musical project, if you prefer, since it seems to have been Johnson and whatever troupe of brilliant musicians he could round up when it came time to make a record) that I never listened to in their heyday/my youth, and I can’t quite figure out why.Read more…

Review Revue: Skeptics – Skeptics III

There have been plenty of times in working on this series when I’ve found myself writing about an album or band about which I really should know more than I do, and I usually either skirt around or self-deprecatingly flaunt my ignorance, depending on my mood. But then there are the bands or albums thatRead more…

Review Revue: Television – Adventure

I was so excited about going to see Television next week at the Moore that I had this whole plan to do a post around their two first albums and had it all ready to go before I realized that I’d covered the KCMU DJs’ gushing response to their classic debut, Marquee Moon a fewRead more…
