In an ongoing attempt to bleed my opinions all over your computer screen, I’m selecting one album from every year that I’ve been alive that has some sort of significance to me…and then writing about it. Welcome back to 35 Albums in 35 Years.   pavement1992: Pavement’s Slanted and Enchanted I’m sure that snarky, self-aware, off-kilter pop music has existed for a long time (Zappa anyone?), but when I was a teenager raging against the machine, afloat in a downward spiral of dirt, super unknowns and neverminds, Pavement was a sarcastic breath of fresh air. There’s only so much unrest and angst you can take before it turns you into some kind of ho-hum sad sack, so the band’s debut album Slanted and Enchanted was a great way to even yourself out. Stephen Malkmus and crew seemed to thumb their noses at everything, tongue [more]

The (Easter) Sunday Song Poem #8 ‘The Man Called Jesus’ By Unknown Artist

Jesus The Sunday Song Poem has been absent for a little while, but I’m back. “14 Later, he appeared to them as they were eating; he rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen him after he had risen. 15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Song Poems to all creation. 16 Whoever believes will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” There’s that well worn aphorism that says The Devil has the best tunes. Stevie Wonder, Daniel Johnston, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Johnny Cash and erm, Dave Mustaine, among others, beg to differ. But if you were to interrogate your friendly neighbourhood Satanist with a few well-intentioned tickles to the ribs, they’d admit they’re just unencumbered by supernatural notions of rewarded-morality and the accompanying subjugation to a [more]

Thee Comic Column #81: Transformers Regeneration One Finale

All good things must come to an end. That’s a cliched statement, but as with many cliches it’s true. And so it was with a somewhat heavy heart I purchased the 100th issue of Simon Furman‘s Transformers: Regeneration One. This was it – the final issue in a saga that goes back 30 years and had intermittent ties throughout my coming of age. In my hands. Open it up, read it, it’s all over. Finished. Ka-put. I couldn’t do it. Not right away anyway. So what I decided to do was hold off on that final issue and re-read the entire twenty-one issue series in preparation for it. This is something I do quite often (I just did it for issue #24 of Racehl Rising, the end of the current “Lilith” [more]

Joup’s Friday Album* – Clinic ’3 EPs’

clinic_sle_34Friday night has appeared on the horizon, and we’ve completely shaken Thursday’s tail – I saw it get vacuumed into the vanishing point of the rearview mirror. So put ‘er in 5th, and gun that motherfucker to the liquor store, ’cause it’s the Joup Friday Album…or in today’s case, put the sprogs in bed, kick off your slippers for your outdoor shoes and pop to the Off License and get a few bevvies in, ’cause it’s the Joup Friday ’3 EPs’ courtesy of four plucky young lads from Liverpool; we can never be sure whether they’ve had Mop Tops or not throughout their 15 year career, given their penchant for appearing decked out like The Medical Residents, resplendent in surgical caps, gowns and face masks. Careening into Jesus’ weekend, “Christ” get’s a shout-out in the first verse after a Ronettes’ ‘Be My Baby’ drum intro, before [more]

Kurt Cobain would have been 47 this Year

nirvanaI should have written this piece a week ago. Somehow, it escaped my notice over the last 10 days that this April marked the 20-year anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. And that shit was everywhere. Basically starting last fall with the 20-year anniversary of In Utero, through the nomination and induction of the band into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the performances last week with Kim Gordon, St. Vincent, Joan Jett, and Lorde, and culminating with the onslaught of internet article after internet article regarding Cobain’s legacy, I’m not sure how I missed it all. Evidently, I live in my own little bubble, oblivious to my surroundings and the outside world at large. It wouldn’t really be a big deal, except that Cobain and Nirvana were such a huge part of my formative years. I was 12 when Nevermind came out, [more]

35 Albums in 35 Years: 1991

In an ongoing attempt to bleed my opinions all over your computer screen, I’m selecting one album from every year that I’ve been alive that has some sort of significance to me…and then writing about it. Welcome back to 35 Albums in 35 Years.   loveless1991: My Bloody Valentine’s Loveless My Bloody Valentine is the loudest band of all time. There is no argument against this. I have seen any number of loud, screeching rock bands over my 35 years, heavy metal bands, obnoxious punk bands, drone and feedback bands, noise, noise, noise. I’ve stood directly next to the PA, the speakers, the half stacks and amplifiers, ears unguarded, my brain rattling around inside of my head from the sound waves careening into my body. Make it loud. Make it scream. Make it shake. I’ve seen it and heard it, [more]
