Happy Talk (Omnivore Recordings). Review by Christopher Long.
Wildlife (Egg). Review by Carl F Gauze.
An expansive and exhaustive behind-the-scenes account of Nirvana’s meteoric rise to fame, and the untimely death of its iconic frontman, Kurt Cobain.
The Lemonheads run through their 1992 opus It’s a Shame About Ray for Matthew Moyer and an excited Jacksonville audience.
A mixture of interview audio and incidental footage, About A Son allows rockdom’s left handed martyr to tell his own story. Matthew Moyer appreciates the minimalism.
Tapestry of Webs (Suicide Squeeze). Review by Carl F Gauze.
Hurrication EP (Olympic). Review by Carl F Gauze.
In author Pete Blecha’s new examination of the gnarled roots of Seattle rock music, he posits that it all started with the slurred words “Louie Louie.” Scott Adams obviously approves.
Skeleton (Mute). Review by Carl F Gauze
Nude With Boots (Ipecac). Review by Matthew Moyer.
You think copyright infringement’s today’s hot topic? Tad‘s been there and done that, and they’re so over it, they’re over it. Scott Adams drinks a nameless, fizzy soft drink in toast to Seattle’s grunge pioneers.
The only way to properly document Nirvana is by documenting the grunge ecosystem, Matthew Moyer thinks, and British journalist Everett True has done just this in this latest biography.
Cultivation (Stinky). Review by Aaron Shaul.
Ruin Everything! (Hello Sir). Review by Aaron Shaul.
