Re: “A SpudBoy Picks His 10 Favorite Devo Songs

I can't say I totally agree with you, but these are some of my very top favorites, and I wouldn't give them up for any amount of money.
I don't recall 5. Booji Boy's Funeral/Hardcore Devo Volume 2 - but since your right-on with the others, I'll be looking for it and listening to it, and there'll be a 99.9% chance I'll be adding to my collection.

Re: “A SpudBoy Picks His 10 Favorite Devo Songs

About an hour ago I was thinking of my favorite Devo songs. Almost all of them are present here. Red Eye Express, Booji Boy's Funeral, Jocko Homo, Beautiful World.

Also love Timing X, Smart Patrol, Going Under, Planet Earth, Satisfaction and Worried Man.

Re: “Attractive Nuisance #1: The Raiders

As an overall Paul Revere and the Raiders featuring Mark Lindsay (whew! that's a mouthful) fan I'm thrilled to see any of their albums reviewed in retrospect, so "Thanks!", Michael. A slight error - you said only Revere and Lindsay remained from their "halcyon days", but representing the band on the album cover are Keith Allison, Freddy Weller and Mike "Smitty" Smith, all touring, writing and recording members of the band's many revolving lineups from '65 - '73. History agrees with Larry above as Lindsay has stated that many of the album cut's were from a planned solo record, hence the horns on many tracks including the title song. Well produced for sure and be sure to turn it up. This album was made to play loud!

Re: “Attractive Nuisance #1: The Raiders

Excellent review, but as you pointed out, not the definitive album of this act. Go to any of the mid-1960s gems--primarily "Spirit of '67"--and that IS what Paul Revere and the Raiders really were. The "Indian Reservation" single's success was completely out of left field, Columbia was starting to carefully nurture Mark Lindsay's solo career--which pretty much fizzled, save a few decent singles--and I think the Raiders were a bit of an afterthought when this single and album came out. But the strength of the single bought them a couple more years at Columbia and as an entity that at least had to be listened to. But that aside, this is a "Raiders" LP, not a "Paul Revere and the Raiders" LP, and quite frankly, it suffers in comparison with those great records this act put out from 1965-1967. Not a bad effort, mind you, but not the one (Paul Revere and the) Raiders album you would want as a "desert island" disk.

Re: “To 'HELL YEAH' and Back With Molly Hatchet

Just enjoy the music! Southern rock is fun, no particular group or demographic owns it.

Re: “To 'HELL YEAH' and Back With Molly Hatchet

I know this article is old but I must share. So... I basically had this exact experience LAST NIGHT. Now, I'm not a MH fan (or a fan of southern rock in particular) but they were playing locally and I thought wth. The music was fun and super loud, the people were having a great time. I was people watching like a mf'er and there was plenty to see. It was exactly as you describe here. But hey, I had committed and I was having a good time, throwing out a few hell yeahs of my own, even if ironically. And I'm thinking, hey, this isn't so bad. My friend jokes that I'll become a redneck sooner or later. A woman right by us says "hey I'm a redneck, nothin wrong with that." with a big smile. Then she leans over to me and basically shouts in my ear "I hate that n$gget in the White House."

Re: “It Was Phil Spector and Carole King, In The Studio, With The Microphone: The Implications Of The Crystals' "He Hit Me (It Felt Like A Kiss)"

The Crystals also recorded the equally bizarre "(Let's Dance) The Screw," a not-so subtle flip-off to his former business partner. As you said, they are pieces of music whose nature and origins should repulse us, but instead they invite our attention, like the remains of a train wreck. I had heard it said that Carole King regrets having anything to do with this song, but I am greatly interested to know the song and the authors' histories and reflections in the song.

Re: “Howard Salmon: 'My Doctors Say I'll be a Goner by Year's End'

I remember Howie very well from his days with the Phantom Limbs. And also from his fanzine called "Slit" that he wrote and produced. I remember once he said in his zine that Jeff from the Limbs resembled something like a cross between Elvis Costello and a penguin! He always had a smile on his face and was a very nice and humble guy. R.I.P Hopwie, you will be missed.

Re: “Ruffians Have Their Way; Historic, Elegant Fox Theatre Remains In One Piece

There was no ill intent in anyone in that crowd. To state that " the Fox security team helped make sure it was a safe good time." is a complete and utter lie. They are the most arrogant and noisome security team I have ever encountered and have seen them overreact on several occasions. Just a bunch of yellow-shirted bullies intent on indulging their fantasy of self-importance and bogus authority. Kudos to Raul and the band for throwing them out. The crowd was nothing more than enthusiastic and joyful - gee, what a terrible thing! "Ruffians" ... what are you, nine? I'd expect to see a BS article like this in the Fundie Times. Good grief!

Re: “Joshua Levine Was Right: Neutral Milk Hotel Announces Reunion Tour, Haters Can Suck It

This attempt to prove all the commenters of the original article wrong is even more pathetic than the original review, and that's saying something. First of all the fact that a reunion announcement has been made doesn't automatically make Mangum's motivation for touring before to be an advertisement. Also, at the time of the review this had not been announced, which is why this newest disgrace of an article on the topic appeared over a month after the original. If you were so sure why not jump to Levine's defense when the comments were being written. This is all a moot point, though, because the original article still stands as a personal vendetta, not a review. That one of the things the commenters latched on to to make their point has panned out doesn't invalidate the content of their discussion. This is a petty, juvenile announcement, and one I'm surprised representatives of the weekly would be willing to stoop to. After going back and reading the original review, as well as the comments, I actually think the commenter you quote here was right on the money, despite his criticism of the reunion announcement. Shame on you weekly indeed!

The animation reminds me a lot of Metalocalypse. I wonder if the same people who created that are involved, and I'll keep wondering because I'm too lazy to investigate.
