ALVA - Slattery for Ungdom (CD, Menlo Park Recordings, Just plain bizarre)
It is rare indeed when something hits this office that we cannot figure out. Alva is a "band" (we use that term loosely) that is so completely off-the-wall that it is difficult to even find words to describe it...but (as usual) we will try. This sounds something like the meeting of a string quartet mixed with Barney songs mixed with To Live and Shave in L.A. In other words, the combination of sounds and influences is so abstract and surreal that you probably will not be able to comprehend it. We always like a challenge...and this is one mighty goddamn challenge. This reminds us in some ways of experimental music from the seventies (Slapp Happy perhaps?) when the word experimental actually meant something. Unfortunately, many of the current "experimenters" in music are people who simply twist knobs to make weird or bad sounds...or who scream and flail about while sounding exactly like everyone else. This band definitely does NOT fit into that category. No, these folks are treading in some waters that are simply unfamiliar...and therefore difficult...for both the listener and (probably) themselves. This receives no rating because we simply can't figure out how to rate it. We highly recommend this for folks who want to test themselves. Can you take it? We think we can, but we are not entirely certain... Goddamn this is an odd one... (Not Rated)

BACKYARD BABIES - Total 13 (CD, Scooch Pooch, Hard rock)
Good screamer rock music with unrelenting loud guitars and pulsing dense rhythms. Not really anything new here, but not really anything that sounds old either. These guys play with the right kind of attitude, and they seem convinced about what they are doing... In the end, that counts for something. If we didn't hear so many bands playing this sort of music, we'd probably be groveling about how hardcore and lavish this music is. But because we are clubbing in a danceland where there are many, many hard rock bands who all sound the same...the best we can do is to recommend those into hard rock check out Backyard Babies. Some good tunes, and the vocalist has whatever it takes. A good CD. (Rating: 3)

DONOVAN'S BRAIN - Eclipse and Debris (CD, Get Hip Recordings, Psychedelic pop)
Peculiar in just the right percentage. What at first seems to meander is actually more mesmerizing. These tunes are not so tripped out as to be overly weird. The strange qualities are subtle yet subversive. Like listening to bubblegrum through a tuba. Or AM radio music with a damaged television. There are four sides, yet there are not four sides. Song titles fit the music. "Tad's New Cymbal Stand Skips the Tour"..."Put the Bag of Money on the Floor and Walk Away Slowly"..."Days Playing Perky Pat"... The band isn't play one central idea, nor does it have one central focus. It's a brainy experience, where things are just slightly out of focus...yet in the end...the listener is satisfied and paying for the left fingers... (Rating: 4)

EVERYTHING (Miscellaneous kind of comprehensive kind of concept sort of thing)
Everything is great. Everything is terrible. Which do you identify with? As with everything, in the end a state of being is nothing more than a state of mind. Things are what you make them, or more precisely...whatever you want them to be. Misery is for those who deserve it and who strive for it, and everything is what doesn't matter the most. Big pig corporate fatties snorting around in their skyscraping pig pens...lowlife scum scouraging the streets begging change from strangers...desperate teenagers having no idea of what they want to do with their lives. It all ties in to represent how terrible and wonderful everything is. Tame the rats and they will breed, sow the seeds so that they shall breathe. In the bat of an eye, another child must die. And so on and so on...until the mashed potato pie. (Not Rated)

FROSTY - Liquor Drink (CD, Menlo Park Recordings, Harsh pop/rock)
I had a feeling this would be a treble-induced over indulgence kind of thing when I noticed that Tom Smith produced it. Yes indeed...the vocals are maxed out with fuzz and extreme-ness...but surprisingly the music is almost rather basic and minimal. The tunes are a mixture of the obvious and the unpredictable. There's no "hit" to be found here...but no "misses" either. Almost silly in an intense kind of way, Frosty is a nice band with balls that isn't just about harsh thrashing. Sounds at times like Captain Beefheart. Particularly enjoyable is the somewhat unbearable "Parkin'." Hmmm. Interesting and entertaining. (Not Rated)

HAGFISH - That Was Then, This Is Now (CD, Coldfront, Rock/pop)
Another punchy bag of hits from Hagfish. This disc is a collection of unreleased and undereleased (???) tracks recorded by the band from 1991 through 1998. As such, this disc sounds amazingly cohesive. In fact, if you didn't open the disc and read the liner notes (like I almost didn't) might not even realize that this is not a new album. That is to say, these tunes are neither "inferior" nor do they have shitty "sound quality." No, instead this "collection" of tunes sounds goddamn fresh and "intense"...just like the day your grainy old "mainframe" jumped up on the boat top and started "coaxing." Loud guitars and pulsing rhythms, like-you-mean-it vocals, and a bunch of singalong "chargers"... (Rating: 4)

HARDKNOX - Hardknox (CD, Jive electro, Electronic/pop)
The problem with most "hardcore" or "punk" electronic music is that everything turns into a perplexing blur of treble-enhanced boredom. Actually, that's not true with the heavy bottom end in the music of Hardknox makes their music have the "oomph" and "wah" that is tragically absent from the index fingers. It's's's angry at times...but it's still entertaining, and that is what is most endearing about this band. True, they do use a lot of things that we've probably all heard before...but at least they're doing what they do with style. For within style are the very frameworks upon which our oceans upon oceans were built to exist. Noise, deep beats, buzzing bass lines, and tripped out vocals complete the scenario...making Hardknox equate whatever you think their name was. Hatch it up and bring it to exist... (Rating: 4)

HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS - Passing Notes (CD, Get Hip Recordings, Rock/pop)
The folks at Get Hip Recordings spew forth a continuous ocean of great new many that the casual listener is left in a dizzy haze. How do they do it? Probably by just picking the good stuff...and by ignoring all the shallow crappy bands that other record companies feel inclined to support. High School Sweethearts is an excellent hard pop band with a cool female vocalist named Cynthia. The music is your basic buzzsaw guitar pop...but the tunes have a fresh explosive energy that is very reminiscent of bands like early Blondie and even The Go-Gos. I particularly like the fact that the band throws lots of stops and starts in their music (something that is sadly missing in many nineties bands who think that the cool thing to do is play one long boring monotonous drone and call it a song). Excellent lyrics and melodies. Yet ANOTHER winning card from the Get Hipsters. Uh huh...YEAH! (Rating: 5)

I AM SPOONBENDER - Sender/Receiver (Canadian import CD, Mint, Pop/varied)
You can always bet on the folks at Canadian label Mint to put out as fine stuff, and it is usually well outside the boundaries of what most people are familiar with. Such is the case with the esoteric foursome who call themselves I Am Spoonbender. The music is as peculiar as the band name. The songs sound like the soundtrack to an obscure British film from the seventies, but there are plenty of surprises thrown in along the way to keep you off guard....such as one song that ends in such a peculiar fashion that you will honestly think your CD player is on the blink. Slightly off base and vague, this band's music is both strangely unsettling and slightly bizarre. (Rating: 4)

TOBY KEITH - How Do You Like Me Now? (CD, Dreamworks, Country/pop)
Hosting a nice husky masculine outlook and voice, country popster Toby Keith stands to be a big seller. This big man has what people are looking for. Good songs. Great eyes. And a voice that spews forth muscles and attitude. Mr. Keith's music sounds like a great many other artists of late, but unlike the vast majority...underneath the sheen and gloss of the big studio sound you can tell that this fellow actually means what he says. And his songs actually sound sincere. After you get past the somewhat so-so title track that begins the disc, the man and his band get down to business...and in doing so, deliver a mighty fine and enjoyable batch of pure country pop. There is a strange thread of sadness in these tunes that becomes apparent after several listens that is particularly appealing. Our particular faves are "Blue Bedroom" and "I Know a Wall When I See One." Makes me kinda wish I knew this fellow. Good poppy stuff. (Rating: 4)

MIKE NESS - Mike Ness is...Under the Influences (CD, Time Bomb Recordings, Pop/rock)
Mike Ness is back with more of his mighty satisfying solo material. There's no need to mention this man's former band, because at this point that band is completely irrelevant. Nowadays, Mr. Ness' music is chock full of country and barroom influences. The rhythms are toe-tapping and infectious...and those raspy vocals sound as macho as Burt Reynold's upper chest area. The sound quality is crisp and tight...the players fierce and arresting...and the overall mood is simply one of good old fashioned fun. Down a couple of bottles of your hardest stuff...turn up the volume to maximum...and get as sloppy as ol' bastard Davey in the haystack. All the tunes cook mighty corndogs...but our favorites are "Let the Jukebox Keep on Playing" (really good) and "Wildwood Flower." This guy is just plain GOOD. (Rating: 4)

WILLIAM ORBIT - Pieces in a Modern Style (CD, Maverick, Varied/instrumental)
Most people probably think of William Orbit as the guy who helped Madonna out on her Ray of Light album. True, he did do that... But make no mistake about it. Mr. Orbit is most certainly an artist whose work stands squarely on its own. Having not heard any of this man's work prior to this, you can immediately color this reviewer's opinion a bright and brassy red. Playing dreamy and just slightly tripped out covers of classical composers lke Samuel Barber, John Cage, Vivaldi, and Beethoven (among others) and making the whole thing sound refreshing and cohesive is not an easy task...but William Orbit rises to take his best shot, and he shoots out a stream of intensely imaginative colors. Modern classical music has never really received the acclaim that it deserves. Composers like Wendy Carlos have proven that you can successfully experiment within the electronic framework and mix styles from different centuries... William Orbit is skipping through this same sort of fanciful territory....creating electronic music that is both fascinating and strangely lovely. As Madonna says, "William is a visionary and incredibly talented musician..." Madonna does not lie. We agree. This is SUPERB. (Rating: 6)

PRIMUS (Live Performance, November 23, 199)
Many years ago I saw a Primus concert and was knocked out by the performance...all the while giggling to myself because 95% of the audience consisted of high school boys ranging from 14 to 17 years of age. At the most recent Primus concert in Atlanta...the band's same fans returned to worship their idol. But they are now in their early twenties and in college. And hey...this time some of them even brung thar goddamn GULR-frinz (although the girlies definitely did not seem to "get it"). One thing is for certain...while all the little boys are now in college...they never got any taller. Although I have no explanation for it, Primus now seems to attract VERY SHORT MEN in their early twenties...who still like to rip off their shirts, all the while endlessly creaming in their trousers over Primus mainman Les Claypool. Now, don't you go thinking that this here revewer is ragging the band. I have been into Primus music since day one. Looking back over the past twenty or so odd years, this is one of the few very successful bands that actually has the sound, the stage presence, and the talent to warrant all the attention. And without a doubt, Mr. Claypool is still THE badass bassman of the century. The man is absolutely one with his instrument. Hell, who else can you think of who can entertain a large crowd of sweaty short men simply by playing bass all by himself with no backup? Another interesting twist to this concert... While the babysue guy himself is always snickering and feeling sorry for the pathetic souls at concerts who dress like and emulate their idols...I was amused by the fact that Mr. Claypool played (appropriately) in military garb...even wearing a helmet the entire time. Why the amusement? Because when not at my "day" job, I always wear military clothing. Not to be "cool," but simply because they are comfortable (and really, really cheap). So...even without my knowing it...this time I was the pathetic loser that all those short shirtless fellows probably thought was trying to emulate their idol. But back to the concert... Mr. Claypool perfectly combined elements of personalities like Hitler, Frank Zappa, George Clinton, and General George Patton to create a presence of authority under whose spell the shirtless ones devotedly leaped upon one another and screamed their vocal chords silly in a blurry haze of sexual confusion. At times, I could not even hear the band's vocals because they were completely muted by all the screaming fans. I'm still trying to figure out who the "guest" guitarist was who appeared for one song only...wearing whiteface and a Kentucky Fried Chicken bucket upside down on his head (?!?). During the course of the evening, Les strutted mechanical military style, played the mutant monkeys out of his bass, confronted the audience with friendly hostility, and showed just how cocky and self confident a big star can really be. The weird part? The man pulls it off. And it is probably just because he is SO DAMN GOOD that he can get away with things that would make other musicians appear as foolish . This was not "the perfect concert" because (a) it was way too hot, (b) some of the short sweaty ones were rude (although most were rather polite in a retarded sort of way), and (c) the overall muddy sound left much to be desired. These things aside, I still highly recommend a Primus concert to anyone who wants to see a REAL performance...even at the currently stiff ticket price of $25. The playing is tight, the lighting is intentional, and the overall mood of inferiors praying to their idol is curious and intriguing. Les Claypool is still scorching HOT. And again, as a reminder, the new Antipop album rocks big time... (Rating: 5)

THE RESONARS - Bright and Dark (CD, Get Hip Recordings, Pop)
Playing bubblegummy light pop music with heart and honesty, Tucson's The Resonars play in a field all their own. The sort of music this band creates went out of style in the late sixties (for whatever reason I cannot understand). The melodies are simple...the lyrics direct...and the overall feel is one of pure upbeat coolness. Bandleader Matt Rendon has the perfect voice for this sort of restrospective music. Twelve cool tunes, including "The Golden Age," "Goodbye Melanie," "If He's So Great," and "Spider West." This stuff sounds JUST LIKE "hits" they used to play on AM radio in the sixties. Completely unpretentious...and, way, WAY cool. (Rating: 4)

THE SERVICE - Who's Criminal? (CD, GMM, Rock)
Sounds like a few good servicemen have been playing the heck out of Ninners Find My Buttocks...! There are good influences and then there are god influences... And then there is just God...all alone, sitting in the field, listening to the daisies. Actually, the Sex Pistols were God for a very short time. And they still are to some degree. People still worship them. You can hear traces of the Pistols all over this CD. The tunes sound similar, the guitars sound similar, and the vocals in particular sound similar. Even with all the similarities...this music still sounds good. Perhaps it is because something is urgent underground. Inside the panties of the growlers and the noo-noo pinkies lurks a mighty head beast going nasty boat over the panda meter. "Opening Day"..."Stain"..."Testify"... It's all angst, and it gets in your pants. Who said you can't get greased up pooties to go shopping on Wednesday? (Rating: 4)

SONABO - Los Artistas al Poder (CD, Caramba!, Latin/pop)
Sonabo what is musical la ensemble compose la five-o Latina Americana origina presenta innovative arrangemente of traditionale Latin America songs. They musica combina richa harmoniza contemporary vocale la native instrumenta sucha asa congas, cuatros, and wide varietae percussionatta instrumente. Sonabo missionatta is "gathera Latin America rhythm and celebrationatta modern experssionatta la rich variete la song feature la uniquely expressive instrumenta, la human voice." Alwaysa interwovenna witha aspecta of the cultura and traditiona of Latin America...and then to provide audiences with a GLOBALLA 'SPEAR-yunts. Oh go GOBULA! Mucho ella guru for pavor Sonabo en COBBULLA! (Rating: 4)

SOUTH PACIFIC - Constance (CD, Turnbuckle, Instrumental)
Rolling like the waves that blankly spank upon the lying plain, South Pacific is full of subtle motion and reminiscent of the passing flow of water. This is a different sort of guitar instrumental band. Instead of imitating sounds of guitar bands from the fifties and sixties (like so many unimaginative fart-powered bands muddying the musical horizon), these three guys have their own plateau...and the way it works is a nice drifting experience. By combining some nifty atmospheric samples with purposely repetitive guitar riffs, the band makes their somewhat droning music seem as if it doesn't drone at all. Now...more than is not what you do but the way you do it. That seems to be the maintenance factor here...making Constance a really nice ride... (Rating: 4)

SPEED INHIBITS POWER (Obvious kind of revelation kind of thing but no one seems to know it kind of thing)
Over the many mighty years of rock music, there has been an increasing tendency to play fast...faster...FASTER...and FASTER. Most bands think that by playing faster, they sound meaner and are more "punk" or more "hardcore" than anyone else. Unfortunately, the overly competitive race for speed has had many detrimental effects on most of the music actually being presented. First, one really really fast loud band sounds...for the most part...exactly like any other really really fast loud band. (There are always exceptions, mind you.) Not only has the quest for speed made bands more homogenous...but playing at too fast a pace also makes bands sound meek and sissyfied. Yes, you read that right. If you are playing at 3,000 miles per hour, how can you possible put any real FORCE behind what you are doing? Listen closely to any supremely fast guitarist, bass player, or drummer. You will notice very quickly that...although they are playing extremely fast...they aren't actually putting much muscle or physical power into what they are doing. So even though everyone thinks they are being badder and more macho by playing faster, the opposite is in fact true. Thank goodness over the past couple of years there seems to be a growing awareness of this problem, as more and more bands have been cropping up who play really really opposed to "way too fast." All you speedsters out there may want to give this some thought. By playing way too fast, you may simply be losing fans...and becoming nothing more than another forgotten zip in the process. (Not Rated)

SQUEEZE - Domino (CD, Quixotic/London, Pop)
Color me surprized. I fully expected this CD to completely suck...not because I dislike Squeeze (I absolutely adored the band's first two albums)....but because I have intense reservations about reformations. At least in this case...and at least for this one album...the results are at least satisfying. Gone are most of the disappointing meanderings of Dullard and the boys return to the sound that made them famous in the first place. The basic Squeeze sound is still basically there...and surprisingly, the formulas still work (more so in some tunes than in others). It's not as totally fresh and vibrant as it once in the beginning...but this band's pop tunes are still enjoyable and very melodic. (Rating: 3)

STARFLYER 59 - Everybody Makes Mistakes (CD, Tooth & Nail, Pop)
The strongest release yet from this criminally overlooked critics' favorite...? Though initially putting their foot on the pedal of a more surreal haze of abstract guitar distortion, over the years Starflyer 59 has slowly transformed into a pure pop band. This transformation was at times unsteady and difficult to adjust to...but upon hearing Everybody Makes Mistakes I am once again taken hook, line, and sinker into this band's wonderfully "real" pop music. It is soft...dreamy...plain...sincere...all the things that are so often sadly missing in modern pop. This super solid release features confident heady soft rockers like "Play the C Chord," "Dollar Bills," "The Party," and "Just Try"...but it is actually the piano-based "No New Kinda Story" that hooks our fevered hosts the most. Very reminiscent of great eighties pop, these compositions are easy. It works. The band's current pop is offset splendidly by the slight presence of something just ever so slighty peculiar lurking behind the curtains. Isn't this a nice way to end the 1900s? (Rating: 5)

SUICIDE MACHINES - The Suicide Machines (CD, Hollywood, Pop) this the SAME band?!? Though they've been around since 1991, this is only the third full-length release from this clobber-you-over-the-head band. Whereas the band's earlier music was a strange harsh combination of ska and thrash music...they've not thrown in the towel for HARD POP. Yup, you heard it right. The Suicide Machines are...of all a pure pop band. What do it sound like? In a way, this sounds like a newer American version of The Jam. The guitars are strong, the drumming ultra macho...and the overall vibe is an upbeat hummable singalong daisy chain of happy funtime. But...this ain't SUGARY SWEET crap, mind you now boys... Stick 'me in your pocket and run tunes like "Permanent Holiday" (yow!) and "I Hate Everything" are catchy as ol' Fanta and his parking meter. And that's just the beginning. A truly fun experience once again from a band that avoids being pigeonholed...but always hits the target. Really cool, yeah... (Rating: 5)

TRAVOLTAS - Modern World (CD, Coldfront, Pop/rock)
Yowsuh! Uh uh uh UH UH UH! Something...DIFFERENT?!? Truly and really different? Yup, believe it or not...Travoltas actually have a new and different sound...and they achieve it by combining a couple of very simple (and very familiar) concepts. First, they write a bunch of songs that are driven by simple loud buzzsaw guitars and driving rhythms. (Not so different, eh?) But...they then layer the familiar buzzsaw sound with crystal clear vocals that sound almost exactly like The Beach Boys. There you have it! A different sound and innovative approach that works as perfect as pudding and pie after the bologna is evenly digested. If it wasn't cool enough that these guys are trying something different...their songs absolutely KICK TINA'S BIG WHITE ASS!!! For fans of great power pop (particularly early 10CC), you won't do much better than this. My initial fave here is "Like to Walk Around"...but in actuality their ain't a miss on this damn disc. An unknown band and yet...a WINNER! (Rating: 6)

THE VINDICTIVES - Hypno-Punko (CD, Coldfront, Rock/pop)
This is the second release I have heard from this wildly fun hyperactive band. Not only is this CD a big bitchin' ball of fun, but it also includes tracks recorded with the trademarked "Hypno-Punko" sound! (Whatever the hell THAT is, goddamn it to Hell!) The tunes are fast and to the point...the band has a great sense of humor...the graphics are funny as Booboo... It all adds up to one fast blast of buzzsaw heaven. You really never know what to expect from this band...and that's probably what is best about them. There are so many buzzsaw guitar rock bands that are nothing more than carbon copies of one another. The Vindictives have their own vision and sound, and they have the personality and testicles to pull it off. Even the song titles are hilarious. "Medication Time" (haw!), "Moms' Message: Pt. I," "More Than Nothing"...and then, of course, there are multiple sections and parts of the tune "I Will Not" sprinkled liberally throughout. Just the sort of taste I like, this CD ought to drive your parents (or your boring old fart friends) UP THE WALL. Totally rockin' stuff! (Rating: 5)

WRETCH LIKE ME - Calling All Cars... (CD, Owned & Operated Recordings, Rock)
Totally excellent hard rock. "This is one son of a bitch of a record" (direct quote from Abe Brennan). I bet these guys are a mindblower in concert.
