Music

Quick Spins

Aerosmith
Devil’s Got A New Disguise: The Very Best Of
Columbia/Geffen

A great reminder
Of the inherent dangers
Of sobriety

Mayor McCa
Cue Are Es Tea You
We Are Busy Bodies

Alternates between
Disturbingly beautiful
And goddam funny

I Hate Sally
Don’t Worry Lady
Underground Operations

Chick-fronted scream-o
Frankly, she scares the fucking
Shit right out of me

Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny
Cash

The Complete Million Dollar Quartet
Sony/BMG

Do you like bad jams
And random drunken ramblings?
Then this is for you!

Meat Loaf
Bat Out of Hell III— The Monster Is Loose
Virgin

Old bulbous rocker
Goes back to the ol’ cheese mill
And comes out stinkin’

Electric Light Orchestra
The Very Best Of
Epic/Legacy

AM chart-toppers
Enough strings and reverb to
Make Phil Spector drool

Burn to Black
Mach 666
Urgent

Fast? Yes. Heavy? Yes.
And about as evil as
Captain and Tennille

The Sourkeys
The Spectacle
We Are Busy Bodies

They’re sometimes jazzy,
Sometimes a bit like Primus
We prefer jazzy

The Fratellis
Costello Music
Drop the Gun

Great frantic rave-ups
Plus too much caffeine equals
Chair-dancing frenzy
