Quick Spins

 

The Bacon Brothers
White Knuckles (Forosoco)

Oh, Michael Bacon,
Don’t you know that Kevin is
Just holding you back?

 

The Living Blue
Fire, Blood, Water (Minty Fresh)

Rockin’, jangly fun
That had me chair-dancing til
My balls were sweaty

 

Enya
Amarantine (Warner)

Human reverb tank
Sings in new, made-up language
This somehow makes sense…

 

Trey Anastasio
Shine (Columbia)

To quote the Phish song:
“I’d like to cut his head off”
Just to shut him up

 

Prince Far I
Silver & Gold 1973-1979 (Blood and Fire)

Unlike Bob Marley
This long-dead reggae legend
Could not dodge bullets

 

Tony Conrad with Faust
Outside the Dream Syndicate Alive (Table of the Elements)

Faust is great and all
But I prefer my music
To contain music

 

V/A
Do You Hear What I Hear? (Sony/BMG)

Yes, I can hear it!
Cash register ching-a-ling
As stars rape classics

 

INXS
Switch (Epic)

Lets hope the new guy
Prefers ass fixation to
Asphyxiation.
