To illustrate that point I always point to Jane's Addiction Nothings Shocking from 1989(?) Monster record, right? but a/b with Nevermind just a couple years later and it sounds positively piddly. It's crazy. I think that's kind of apples and oranges myself, but I see what you mean. My only problem ...

As far as production, I think remastering for CD would go a long way toward improving any of those records. I would go so far as to say that a lot of those SST records sound crappy because Spot was a crappy producer. I always get the feeling listening to those old SST records that he was more the g...

Black Flag : What michaelvincent said. Although I've come to terms with the Flag's later direction, it doesn't mean that you'll find me playing "Slip It In" with much frequency. Enter post-"Damaged" Flag territory at your own risk. I should point out that I have an unusual fascination bands that re...

I gotta go with Black Flag. As a young metalhead I purchased the First Four Years and wondered what the hell I was listening to. Greg Ginn's guitar work was chaos personified, it was beautiful. I especially love post-My War Black Flag. My War was like Flag's line in the sand, and everything after th...

hey MV, how's that new boards of canada rekkid? i had it in my hands all ready to buy it the other night but ended up going with brian wilson's "smile" and the new princess superstar... It's good. I'm not sure if I like it as much as Geogaddi, though. All in all it's solid, and I like it a lot. The...

RFTC's Last Hurrah

Rocket from the Crypt will play their last show on Halloweeen Night. They really haven't been doing a whole hell of a lot lately but what a bummer. I've seen them more times than I can count and they were some of the best live gigs I've ever been to. I think my best memory was meeting Petey X (the b...

Re: Steve-o's musical rant o' the week

Did anyone else know about this? Where's the outrage? This is just not right. Yeah, I remember being a little put off by it. Of course I immediately blocked it out, so thanks for bringing this one back to mind. The only thing I cold think of when I saw it was that SNL skit where the older music tea...
