HOG Nothing Sacred 1996

by request

Not a very flattering review....

AllMusic Review by

Hog is the kind of band that gives youth-culture movements a bad name. Green Day may not be the most original band on the planet, but you can believe they at least come by their Clash/Jam influences second-hand. Most everything on Nothing Sacred smells of third-hand thrift shops. As a matter of fact, if the Green Day boys weren't so busy ducking Joe Strummer's lawyers, they might want to have their own legal eagles turn a close ear to Hog's "Get a Job." For variety, the group lurches into unconvincing rockabilly ("Don't Say Nothin' Bad About My Baby") and hillbilly ("You and Me"). Only moody vengeance ballad "Medicine" shows any depth at all. I suppose for your early-teen fanatic who will absolutely "die" if Green Day doesn't release a new album soonest, Nothing Sacred could serve as an emergency placebo.

While we listen to Big Chief and remember the good ol' days, let us not forget the side-splitting magazine, Motorbooty, that poked and prodded at the fumbling and fickle music industry of the 90's. If you never got to read a copy of Motorbooty, you still have a chance. Three issues are available from Mark Dancy's site, Illuminado. Dancy has left his mark in graphic arts and you will see his artwork gracing the covers of Big Chief releases as well as posters, stickers and comics and the cover of Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger release.
If you happen to be a veteran of 90's college radio, hilarity will ensue as you read quips and inside jokes about bands, record labels and the dynamic music scene that gave us something to look forward to besides AOL and a 9600 baud modem.

Found this Friday at a Goodwill thrift store. Never have seen a copy of this anywhere. It's a UK import "limited edition individually numbered digipak" CD. My copy says on the front of the digipak that the "...booklet includes the wit and wisdom of John Lydon." I suspect that few people didn't even care about a P.I.L. release that was numbered and limited edition when it was released almost 20 years ago. And I doubt most of you are hanging on the edge of your seat waiting for me to pound out some text of Lydon's quotes and thus will be spared his cynical twattery.

Artist Biography by

The lineup for L.A.'s 1000 Mona Lisas coalesced in 1993 around vocalist/guitarist Armando Prado (b. Glendale, CA), bassist Gianni Neiviller (b. Hollywood, CA) and drummer Rocco Bidlovski (b. Brazil); Bidlovski had previously played with the South American band Tokyo before coming to the U.S. The group's California punk/hardcore attitude and style is laced with melodic power-pop on two releases, the Slammin' EP and 1995's debut album New Disease, produced by Geza X (Black Flag, Dead Kennedys).

SUBURBAN RHYTHM self titled 1997

(This post is dedicated to T.J.)

Suburban Rhythm is a 17-song obituary for the band of the same name Suburban Rhythm. This compilation is their only CD release, which was produced three years after the band's breakup. It includes three tracks from the Hose demo, the missing song is "Matahari" which the band omitted for various reasons. Four songs from the Almost There 7" EP and nine unreleased songs which were from the aborted LP sessions. The Almost There tracks were taken from these sessions. Five tracks were recorded live at The Black Room in Santa Ana, California.

The artwork features numerous photos, and features liner notes by Tom Dumont guitarist for the band No Doubt. It is currently out of print, and can occasionally be found in bargain bins at record shops, at obscure ska concerts, or online with some effort. - Wikipedia

DYNAMUTT Handbook for Young Scientists 1994

Can't find much about Dyn@mutt on the internets. I really liked this CD and played it a lot on my radio show, especially the song "Crunchtime." As far as I know this was their only full length release on Farrago Records, Houston, Texas. A vinyl compilation called Alles ist Gut! Mixed Fodder Volume One 7 inch EP featured Dyn@mutt, Lozenge, Buddha on the Moon and Tit was also pressed by Farrago Records which was apparently the label's first release.
