ANNOUNCE: new URBAN FARMERS CD out on Uprising

It was a dark and stormy night, and once again i found myself at the 
door of Lounge Ax in Chicago, as i often have this spring. We were 
there for one of the nights of the Cardigan Fest, and if any of the 
bands played a cover of "The Sweater Song" i haven't heard about it, 
but i think it would have been brilliant.


we missed the first few bands, including kittywinder and labradford, 
while we were out cruising for parking.  but there was still a pretty 
small crowd for the next band, UI.  they were three serious 
young men who loved repetition, building songs out of repeating the 
same riff over and over, then interspersing bass solos over that.  
the set began promisingly but the formula became pretty monotonous.  i 
found myself longing for some variety in tempo and approach.  one 
dogged soul danced, sort of a country line-dance actually, but she 
seemed to be in a different bar.

I had heard a Number One Cup single and was prepared for some kind of 
minimal, poppy, arty sound.  thus their all-out Chapel Hill-style 
sound was surprising.  bouncy, loud, a little goofy but not too much 
so, they reminded me of Pavement, Archers of Loaf, and Superchunk 
alternately.  They took so little trouble to synthesize their 
influences that I can only say that they are derivative, but people 
who like this sort of thing will find it to be the sort of thing they 
like.  I liked it and felt like a sucker.  They covered GBV's "Exit 
Flagger" and a Mountain Goats song.

Last up were Sea and Cake, a band I'd kind of been on the fence about, 
and I was not disappointed.  Something about the way these guys seem 
to toss off spare, languid melodies is very easy to embrace.  I had 
feared there would be noodling, but what there was didn't seem to 
bother me.  Notable personae included Archer, known for his role in 
The Coctails, and Sam, lead singer with a sort of sleepy-Mickey-Rourke 
attitude.  "Play 'Jackin' the Ball!" yelled an audience member, right 
after they'd played it.  "Aw, man, we just played that one," he 
replied, without a trace of irony.  I laughed.

I can see stars, I can see asteroids...

Before I get to the "substance" of this submission, I'd like to issue 
a little reminder/challenge to the Indie-List membership, all 1300 to 
1400 of you.  (Betcha didn't realize how many people receive this...  
I would attempt to give an exact count, but that would take hours to 
figure out.)

My point: This list is one by and for its readers.  It has always been 
and will continue to be member-driven.  What this means is that the 
responsibility is on YOU to make it something worthwhile.  Heard a 
record lately that made you jump up and down? Or one that fit that 
gloomy dark brooding feeling you've had for the past two months? Or 
one that is just worthy of some attention? Read any good zines or seen 
a show? Then tell us about it.

There are no professional I-L writers.  There are no official I-L 
writers (except for the occasional bit of administrivia).  And unlike 
your average zine, this is not necessarily a passive exercise.  If 
you're content to just read, then that's fine, and we won't kick you 
out or anything.  :) But nobody should be afraid to express a 
viewpoint, ask a question, or talk about a band/show/zine/etc.  You 
are the single best judge of what's appropriate for discussion here.  
So go ahead and try writing - after you've done it once, it only gets 
easier...  and I speak from experience on that one.

Recorded Material:

Hum, _You'd Prefer An Astronaut_ (RCA)

3rd lp from this Champaign, IL crew, first one tied in to the 
corporate ogre (first two were on the fine Twelve Inch label).  I was 
a little apprehensive about purchasing it, since my local "commercial 
alternative" station has been playing the hell out of "Stars" lately 
(advance CD single, perhaps? special "radio edit" that's 10 seconds 
shorter than the album version of the song? no, that couldn't be...).  
But I liked _Electra 2000_ plenty, and they were flat out amazing last 
year when I saw them play in Princeton, so I took the plunge and 
bought it.

And, I'm glad I did.  While "Stars" might be the first song to grab 
out at you from the disk, it's not the single that the LP was built 
around or anything - it was just convenient to draw it out from the 
LP.  Strong guitar playing, nice and creative use of dynamics, nothing 
pretentious or ostentatious, just a well-crafted record.  There will 
be comparisons made to ye olde smashing fucktards, and I've already 
heard one DJ say that "billy cornflake likes them," but this is a far 
superior record (and it's not the least bit whiny or over-produced).  
Last time they came through DC, they were opening for Bush (I think) - 
what a shame, 'cause I have no interest in seeing lame-ass British 
poseurs (but would have to pay too much to get in and then leave 
before the headliners).  Anyway, if they happen to be playing near 
you, and the remainder of the lineup isn't too offensive, check 'em 
out.  *1/2 for the album, ** in live performance.

John Coltrane, _Blue Train_ (Blue Note, 1957)

No commentary is really necessary, and I can't do this record any form 
of justice by talking about it.  I'm just annoyed at myself for taking 
so long to pick up a copy.  I think it's Coltrane's first release as 
band leader, but I could be wrong...  anyway, it's a 6-piece band, and 
if you can't ride with the title track through its 10 minutes of 
glory, then you're not actually listening to it.  ***

(I was really looking for some Eric Dolphy stuff, but the store didn't 
have a single Dolphy CD - lame-ass fuckers - and in flipping around, I 
found _Blue Train_ instead.  I'm not disappointed in the least, trust 
me, but how can a self-respecting record store not carry a single 
Dolphy or Ornette Coleman CD, and only 3 or 4 by Coltrane? That's what 
I get for impulse shopping in the chain store...  anyone have ideas 
for punishment besides the ever-popular hand-flensing by lesbians?)

Other than those items, not much in the way of new acquisitions 
lately...  been listening to the radio far too much for my own good 
'cause I'm too damn lazy to keep turning over records or changing CDs 
when they finish.

But I will recommend that people who don't already have it RUN 
directly to the nearest cool record store and score a copy of Snap 
by the Jam - and don't wuss out for the shorter CD - you really do 
need this in its full glory - all 16 singles released by the band, 
with b-sides, and a couple other tracks for good measure.  Remember 
(or learn) what true power-punk-pop is all about.

pop zine dream

Even as we speak, there is a crew of hundreds laboring under deadline 
crunch to bring you the next issue of Malathion Risk, due out this 
summer (in several languages.) While we let them have a not-undeserved 
short break, we kifed these reviews off the desks of some for your 
early enjoyment!

The Apples in stereo-fun trick noisemaker (spinart); I am absolutely 
in love with the apples' self-released ep.  I was worried that they 
couldn't follow it up with a full-length lp.  Not that I doubted they 
couldn't write the songs, I was worried that they wouldn't stay 
focused long enough to turn out a full lp.

Wow, was I wrong! The record will either be the sleeper of the year 
or on everyone's tongue.  The pure pop of "glowworm" to the 
psychedelia of "dots 1-2-3" to the Summer Nights-era Beach boys 
tribute "inner space" and the bonus surprise of Hillary's wonderful 
vocals all add up to this being one of the finest records I've ever 

Robin Hitchcock-I Something You +2 (K): It's Robin Hitchcock, alone 
with a guitar & harmonica.  Calvin Johnson recorded it.  What the hell 
do you think it sounds like?!! Stark and beautiful.

starhustler-Mendicant (dirt): this band certainly has the pedigree to 
compete in the indie-pop dog show, but it is on the strength of the 
music alone that would clinch it a blue ribbon.  if you think that 
isn't a good review, then remember only the best dogs compete in the 
show, and a blue ribbon is the highest honor bestowed.  this record is 
definitely "Best in class" and a strong contender for "Best of show."

John T.  Baker- itchy scalp theater (ivy de milo): what this amounts 
to is a self-released cassette. Ever heard of one of those? I thought 
so.  John was apparently a member of the Nashville scene a few years 
back but decided to retire to the quiet hills of Arkansas.  There he 
retired even further to his attic and recorded this tape full of 
wonderful pop songs.  This tape is so low key that I'm sure few of you 
will ever hear it.  What a shame.  You can get this from John right 
now. Pop music of the home-grown variety, and we all know how much fun 
that can be!

Swiss Bliss-7" ep (dirt):A nice, sorta psychedelic, way indie single by 
azalia snail and sportsguitar.  azalia having already established some 
sort of "indie" cred, records some songs with her new swiss friends 
and the indie-pop world is happy.  Actually I like this record more 
than this review would reflect.

Lazy-You and me +2(roadtrip):Lazy are local heroes, and deservedly so.  
This 7" turns in one song sung by each of the three members.  Meghan's 
song "You and Me" is the a-side and desservedly so.  This is the 
strongest track of the 3.  The b-side shows their bar/punk influence.  
"Broken" rocks as hard as anything they ever do, and "Jacked-Up Nova" 
should shake the whole cuddle-core movement right to its foundations.

Godzuki-Toast/Gleason Rocket (march): Not every single is destined to 
become a classic.  This actually falls somewher between Liz Phair and 
cuddlecore.  It's got the cool girl vocals and the twangy guitar sound 
we've come to expect from both.  This is a really cool record and you 
should buy it now, before everyone picks up on the "scene" status and 
these records sell out.

Blairmailer/Flywheel split 7"(spit and 1/2): This is the second 7" in 
the on-going "australian pop series." 2 more great songs.  If you're 
familiar with blairmailer, then you should own this.  By no means a 
throw away track.  Flywheel remains unknown.  I'm assured this track 
will be on a full-length Flywheel cd soon.  So this MUST be what's 
known as a tease.  Garage-rock/Australia-style!

Karate-death kit/nerve (self-starter): You hear good things about a 
record.  Then you run across it at record store the next day.  Is it 
too soon? Should I wait till I hear more? Should I just go on gut 
instinct? Fuck it! I'm gonna buy this record.  Uhh..  just for the 
record, I'm glad I did.

The Silly Pillows-Strangest of the Strange (little teddy); While you 
may not know it, the silly pillows have been around for a long time.  
They were sitting in their bedroom recording wonderful pop songs long 
before it became fashionable.  Now they have moved out of the bedroom 
and into the family room.  This record is filled with the sort of low- 
key pop songs that creep their way into your head several times a day, 
long before you know the titles.


Some malcontents have dubbed this particular brand of music "college 

I guess this is meant to be derogatory in the way you would use "frat 
boy." Since I like a lot of the tunes in this genre, I'm going to 
attempt to rename it.

Like all things, there are good and bad examples.  You have to decide 
for yourself which bands fall into which category.  This music is 
primarily guitar-driven, fairly stripped down, and vocally pleasant.  
It has a bad habit of sticking in your head for awhile at work.  Some 
of it will survive a lot longer than others.  However well it stands 
up to the test of time, remains to be seen.  Currently, though, when 
you hear it you have one hell of a time pulling it off the turntable.  
Of course most of it comes from the same area of the country, but not 
all of it.  It sounds alot like I'm describing So-Cal '70s wimp rock, 
so I'm going to use a phrase I once heard coined for that now 
long-dead scene.  This music generally comes from the east coast now, 
and we're gonna call it "trash pop."

spent-songs of drinking and rebellion (merge): this would get my vote 
for trash pop king record.  Boy/girl vocals that are to die for, a 
revved up guitar sound, humor and heartbreak.  It's all here on the 
label least likely to put it out.

After 20 minutes of listening to The Beach Boys-Today, the workforce 
returns, everybody's happy, everybody's singing Help Me, Ronda, and 
everybody's back at work.  Malathion Risk #9 will be here soon, but 
you won't hear from me until then.  See ya soon!

Watt, Versus, and questions about country music

Hi folks, it's been awhile since I posted to the indie list but I 
figured since finals were over I'd say hi.

I went to see Mike Watt a couple of weeks ago and came off with some 
interesting impressions.  First of all Dave Grohl's new band sounds 
very much like Nirvana, but tuneful, more like "Nevermind" than 
"Bleach" or "In Utero." You may ask what this has to do with 
indie-ness.  Well, I struck up a conversation with William the 
drummer back stage.  William and Nate from Sunny Day Real Estate are 
now in Grohl's band, the Foo Fighters, and sound as good as always.  
William says SDRE has definitely called in quits, a real shame, but 
there will be a posthumous album this fall.  I think he was really touched 
that someone had come to the show to see him and not just Eddie 
Vedder.  Poor Eddie, all these girls were screaming his name and he 
was just trying to watch Foo Fighters from the back of the stage.  
He's very shy, I was standing next to him for most of it.  (I was the 
BRU promotional DJ for the show, so I was backstage) I think we in the 
"indie community" (whatever that is) should really cut Ed some slack, 
he seems like a nice enough guy who doesn't really want to be the 
world's biggest rock star.  He was pretty good with Watt too, and Watt 
played "Making the Freeway Safe for the Freeway," so I went home 
pretty happy.  At one point he said, "This song is for D.  Boon, and 
for those of you who don't know, you should know." Watt rocks.  Good 
to see him getting some $$$ finally.

Watt (without Eddie and Dave Grohl) will be on Lollapalooza second 
stage this year, along with a bunch of other bands, some of which I 
remember: Pharcyde, Coolio, Laika, Dambuilders, and Versus.

Speaking of Versus, their singles compilation "Dead Leaves" is out 
finally, and I have to give it ** 1/2 out of 5.  Yes, I am another 
of the crazy Versus fans who thinks they are the greatest band on the 
planet.  It's all the tunes you know and love - Astronaut, Bright 
Light, Insomnia, plus 4 new previously unreleased tracks.  The one bad 
spot - "Another Face," of the Stars Kill Rock compilation.  All that 
screaming - what the hell was Richard thinking? By the way, I'm betting 
that Eddie Vedder himself is a big Versus fan - if you ever hear the 
PJ single "Corduroy" you might notice that the bridge is very 

Other new stuff I've gotten...  The Poole album on SpinArt, Alaska 
Days, is pretty cool but probably not worth paying money for (I got an 
extra copy from the station) unless you're really into that dreamy 
fast-strummed pop (not as fast-strummed as Unrest, mind you).  
The Suddenly, Tammy! major label debut is called We Get There When We Do, 
its very Adult Contemporary-sounding and would probably go over well 
on AAA radio.  This is not a bad thing, it would be the best thing on 
AAA radio.  The piano is an exiting instrument in Beth's hands, the 
songs are catchy, and her voice is so cute.  I've listened to it a lot 
since I got it.

I gave away my Radial Spangle album.  Too dull, too spotty.  The songs 
range over so many styles yet all seem pretty boring except "Patio 

One last question: about Wilco.  Yes, I know they are on a major, but 
I am a huge huge fan of Wilco and Uncle Tupelo and I am curious what 
else is out there that has that similar rock-bluegrass-folk sound 
(Wilco kinda drops the punk aspects of the first couple of Uncle 
Tupelo records, but I liked those too).  I didn't like the Jayhawks 
'cause the sound was too polished; I think I like Tweedy and Farrar's 
rough voices and the string instruments like banjos, pedal steel, etc.  
I bought Gram Parsons and Flying Burrito Brothers, but that wasn't 
quite what I was looking for.  Anyone who likes music similar to this 
can email me personally with suggestions.  Also I'm curious what 
people think of the Bad Livers or Freakwater; I heard those bands are 
pretty country influenced and I am wondering if I should pick some 
stuff up.

Oh, Blood Oranges are another band that fit this label.  I like them 
too.  So email me with some advice, please.  And buy the Versus album.

Destroy All Monsters/ Princess Dragon Mom

Well, the Destroy All Monsters reunion show in the "fashionable" 
(according to the ad for the Magic Bag Theatre) Detroit suburb of 
Ferndale, Michigan, was a great success.  When I arrived, though, I 
thought I had taken a wrong turn and had somehow found my way to 
Hoboken, NJ.

The Magic Bag itself is on Woodward Ave.  and by the time this road 
makes its way to Ferndale, it has become the classic "main drag" in 
all the New Jersey implications of the word.  I spotted quite a few 
vehicles sporting those pink fluorescent license plate lights.

When my posse and I walked up to the theatre, we were greeted by a 
very disheartening "SOLD OUT" sign.  However, below that was a note 
saying: "30 tickets reserved for THE MEDIA may become available after 
10:30." It was 9:00 at the time.  Thankfully there were only two 
people in line ahead of us who'd been there since 8:00, shortly after 
the show "sold out".  So we began what was to be a two hour wait in 
line on a 30-40 F degree and windy night.

While waiting, it was sickening to see that the ratio of guest-listed 
patrons to bona fide ticket holders was something on the order of 4:1.  
It was also very amusing to watch all the shmoozing taking place as 
people made their entrances.  No Thurston sightings, though.  Darn.

Sometime between 10:30 and 11, Princess Dragon Mom rounded the corner 
and made their entrance, wearing silver space outfits and helmets, two 
of them riding in a weird silver bicycle sidecar contraption and a 
third following on foot with a metal detector that was screaming like 
crazy.  They rode the bicycle thing straight through the main 
entrance, to the chagrin of the door people, and from the accounts of 
people inside, straight down the center aisle of the theatre and took 
the stage.

So at 11 the "media" tickets became available and we were able to go 
in.  It was quite nice that they were able to let all of the 50 or so 
people in line in.  Although the Magic Bag was undoubtedly just trying 
to make up for the guest lists.

O, to the delight of my ears (eyes too but mostly ears) when I was 
able to walk down the center aisle to the front of the theatre and 
take my place.  I am now of mind that Princess Dragon Mom are 
certainly one of the greatest "rock" bands on the planet at the 

The noises they make using a synthesizer, drums, two vocal mics (for 
screaming), the metal detector from time to time maybe a radio from 
time to time too and the occasional firecracker is really sick.  I 
missed the earlier part of the set where their synth player, a big 
burly guy sporting a vampire cape was rapping and I can only imagine 
how great that must have been.

There's also another big burly guy with lots of tattoos who just sits 
on stage in pants and an undershirt, reading a newspaper at a table, 
with a look of complete indifference to the insanity going on around 
him.  Occasionally, he sets the newspaper down and staples scraps of 
paper to his face or impales his double-chin with a skewer.  Fucking 

In all there were 5 people comprising the band: synth player, drummer 
(Warren from His Name Is Alive, I believe), newspaper guy and two 
screamers (one of them was Davin who's also in the amazing Little 

I'm not sure how much/often they play outside of Michigan but any of 
you out there who book shows, I'd highly recommend looking into them.  
Their recorded stuff is quality too.  Their stuff is pretty well 
scattered on a variety of labels but Time Stereo seems to be where 
most of it can be found.  Write: Time Stereo/ 28143 W.  8 Mile/ 
Livonia, MI 48152/ USA.

PDM have a pretty recent 7" on the Alley Sweeper label that is quite 
fine.  It sounds like they use guitars on this one: seconds of 
familiarity broken up by noise bursts just as you start feeling 
comfortable.  Weird panning techniques, speakers alternately swelling 
or just dropping out completely.  Best played at high volumes.  Good 
cerebral stuff.

The original DAM line-up was all here: Cary Loren, Mike Kelley, 
Niagara and Jim Shaw.  Since DAM's subsequent splintering in the 
mid/late 70s, Shaw and Kelley have become somewhat recognised artists.  
Those unfamiliar with Kelley can check out the liner notes to Sonic 
Youth's Dirty for a quick introduction, where some of his stuffed 
animal creations and high school mug shot can be found.  If you have 
the limited edition CD, you can also see him doing nasty things to 
said animals.  A book of some of Jim Shaw's paintings titled _Thrift 
Shop Paintings_ is also out and about and is recommended.

The instrumentation for the show: two guitars, bass, drums, synth, 
sometimes scary vampire looking woman (Niagara, currently of Dark 
Carnival) came out to sing, rest of the time the drummer (Mike Kelley) 
Niagara was totally great and I liked the songs she sang on the best.  
She had a very evil presence and lyrics to match.  Looked very zoned 
out though by the end of DAM's hour and a half long set and indeed 
advised us all to "snort it, shoot it, whatever" (she had travelled 
back and forth from backstage all evening.) It will be weird listening 
to Sonic Youth after this because Kim Gordon's voice sounds totally 
derivative of this woman.

As a sidenote of potential interest, I believe Kim Gordon went to art 
school with Mike Kelley and also (possibly) Richard Pettibon in 

As for the songs, at their best, they were arty albeit with simple 
structures.  Not as much guitar crazy improv as I was lead to believe 
beforehand, though.  At their worst, they sounded like a cross between 
the Dead and Sonic Youth.  I'd say their set was split about a quarter 
mindblowing, a quarter boring and a half above average.

As part of the encore they were joined on stage by Robert Quintron who 
danced around and screamed and two members of the Demolition Dollrods 
who just danced around.

On the drive home, I listened to a tape of a DAM live show plus 
"outtakes" from the recent three CD box set on Ecstatic Peace that 
they were selling at the show.  This really flipped my head.  It was 
the greatness that I'd been hearing people talk about before the show.  
Just weird improv/noise, tape loops, etc.,  that didn't sound 
pretentious or wank, like improv has a tendency of doing.  And it 
never grew old or tiresome.

This is the best music I have heard so far this year and it's from 
f-ing 1975! Timeless music that eerily predicts music-to-be some 
twenty years after its creation.

Since this review was originally written, I have picked up the box set 
(c.  1974-1976) and words fail to describe just how beautiful, 
disturbing and powerful their music is.  For $30, it seems pretty 
intimidating but it's guaranteed to be the best $30 you will spend on 
music this year.

Thanks for your collective time.

Fuck the media.
