Le cut-up populaire. Review by Julius C. Lacking.
Public Stain (Jagjaguwar). Review by Matthew Moyer.
With a riotous sonic assault that nearly brought down the balcony at the Bowery Ballroom, Superchunk showed they still have the fire and intensity of their youth, kicking out the jams, shredding the wallpaper, and bringing the noise to a very enthusiastic crowd that included Jeff Schweers.
Tragically, The Knack‘s career has come to a close with the passing of frontman/ songwriter/ guitarist Doug Fieger on Valentine’s Day 2010. Steve Stav remembers the man, resurrecting this interview conducted for Ink 19 a few days after Fieger’s 53rd birthday in 2005.
Jen Cray is delighted to report that Green Day has morphed into an unstoppable rock ‘n’ roll band, capable of holding entire arenas of fans in the palm of its collective sweaty hand. Whether you believe it or not is up to you.

This Is…Eurovox (Saville Row Recordings). Review by Kyrby Raine.
