MISSING PERSONS - "Rhyme & Reason"






MISSING PERSONS - Rhyme & Reason" (1984)
(from vinyl)



One of the greatest 80's new wave bands to ever grace the music world, in my opinion! This album is wonderful - rich, elaborate synth work, great driving rhythms and very well thought-out lyrics! 'Surrender Your Heart' and 'The Closer That You Get' are some of the best songs Missing Persons ever put out.

A must for any 80's fanatic! Enjoy!!



A1. The Closer That You Get
A2. Give
A3. Now Is The Time (For Love)
A4. Surrender Your Heart
A5. Clandestine People
B1. Right Now
B2. All Fall Down
B3. Racing Against Time
B4. Waiting for A Million Years
B5. If Only For The Moment

JULIE BROWN - "Big & Stupid / Homecoming Queen"






JULIE BROWN - "Big & Stupid / Homecoming Queen" (1982)
(from vinyl)



A fantastic, hilarious single from legendary actress/singer/comedienne, Julie Brown! The Big & Stupid versions here are vastly different than the mix that appeared on the 'Trapped In The Body of a White Girl' album and the 'Earth Girls Are Easy' soundtrack. And of course 'Homecoming Queen' is and always will be a classic!



A1. I Like 'Em Big And Stupid
A2. The Homecoming Queen's Got A Gun

We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It!! - "Bostin' Steve Austin"






WE'VE GOT A FUZZBOX AND WE'RE GONNA USE IT!! - "Bostin' Steve Austin" (1986)
(from vinyl)



I know I talk up a lot of the albums I post, but with this album, please please believe me when I say that this is one of my absolute most favorite albums in the world! Fuzzbox was an all-girl band out of the UK. They began as a super fun punk group and ended up a polished, glampop band. This is their first album, and in my opinion, their best.

A fuzzbox is used for distortion FX on a guitar, and aptly named, these girls do indeed have a fuzzbox and they are not afraid to use it! Every song on this album is pure gold - you owe it to yourself to check it out!

Taken from my own pristine vinyl, allow me to introduce the gals - Magz, Jo, Tina and Vic!



A1. Love Is The Slug
A2. Wait And See
A3. Jackie
A4. Spirit In The Sky
A5. XX Sex
A6. Alive
B1. What's The Point
B2. You Got Me
B3. Hollow Girl
B4. Console Me
B5. Rules And Regulations
B6. Preconceptions

APHEX TWIN - "Melodies From Mars"






APHEX TWIN - "Melodies From Mars" (1995)



This is probably the weirdest Aphex Twin album I've heard. It was originally created for Richard D. James' friends at Rephlex and Warp Records, and was never released to the public. This one is sort of hard to explain. It's not exactly techno, it's more like really bizarre electronic compositions. Really really tripped-out, and indeed does sound like Martian melodies. Enjoy!!
