Music Reviews

Dr. Israel

Inna City Pressure

Trumystic/Mutant Sound

Derivative. Pretentious. Just as full of itself as it can be. Funky chicken ghetto waltzes, as sung by somebody who takes himself far FAR too seriously and fancies himself quite the religio/politico/philosophic font of wisdom. The really sad part is that the backing music isn’t half bad, and if the good Doctor would just shut the fuck up, it might qualify as party music for stoned teenagers. Somewhere, people are hanging on this guy’s every word.

Scary.

Flaming Ears

Screen Reviews

Set in the year 2700 in the imaginary city of Asche, Flaming Ears is a daring micro-budget sci-fi film from 1991 that envisioned a dystopian urban landscape that now seems eerily familiar. Lily and Generoso share their thoughts on the film’s new 4K restoration.
