Bringing you all the Release Reviews that matter since 1999

(SHOWREEL)
01 July 2002 / Demo / 2 TRK CD
:: Dirty Fire Project ::
An impressive collection of tracks, highlighting some original and striking electronic / dance from perhaps the next generation of club bound artists

SPIRALS
01 July 2002 / Demo / 4 TRACK CD
:: Little Plato ::
Interesting, spaced out background keyboard noises and hooks with energetic guitars with a stadiumesque stature - the vocal work is confident and distinctive - it all adds up to a special and notable effort

RESENTION IS A BIG WORD IN SMALL TOWN
01 July 2002 / Promo / 7 TRK CD
:: Beecher ::
A brilliantly delivered collection of razor sharp tracks, blunt vocals and chainsaw arrangements, delivered with the care and panache of the Halle Orchestra

STYLE OVER CONTENT
01 July 2002 / Action / 12 TRK CD
:: Monro Stahr ::
Album sized collection of Parisian Soundtrack meets Argentinean Spaghetti Western Extravaganza

BETWEEN THE LINES
01 July 2002 / Infectious / 32 TRK DBLE CD
:: My Vitriol ::
My Vitriol release their first single for over a year, quickly followed by a double album of rarities, cover versions and the remixed US version of their debut long player ‘Finelines’

'o'
01 July 2002 / Promo / 10 Trk CD
:: Damien Rice ::
Irishman Damien Rice, is quoted as being one of the most highly rated young songwriters in Ireland and this Album is quite beautiful and astounding in equal measures

ACROSS THE POND
01 July 2002 / HTI / 11 TRK CD
:: Adam Snyder ::
This debut solo album from one time (1996 - 2000) Mercury Rev member Adam Snyder depicts a more mellow and acoustic side from the artist, contributor to classic cut “Deserters Song"

LET THE RADIO PLAY I LOVE YOU
01 July 2002 / Promo / 5 TRK CD
:: Roger ::
With vocals straight off New Orders factory catalogue circa 1988, the whole song just swamps you in keyboards and enchanting 3 tone hooklines.

WORKING THE RIBALD RATIO
01 July 2002 / Ugly Man / 13 TRK ALBUM
:: BoneBox ::
A lazy canvass of rhythms, rumbling bass lines and carefully placed harmonica, brass and strings - the throat driven growls are real enough - Bonebox qualify the whole thing with a tight but seemingly spontaneous shimmer of authentic 50's swamp guitars

FIRESOULSPEED EP
01 July 2002 / Thrill City / 4 Trk CD
:: The Obsession ::
Like the echoes of a bloody machine gun soundtrack revolution - This is your future. You have no future - so you may as well enjoy this.

BURNIN
01 July 2002 / Demo / 7 TRK CD
:: Morgan4 ::
some good singing – strong, well delivered and melodic without being too cheesy

SINGLE SAMPLER
01 July 2002 / Promo / 3 TRK CD
:: Kinesis ::
Kinesis are just so obviously going to succeed. Fanatastic and faultless. A perfect result from a bunch of Bolton kids waiting for their exam results

THREE LIVE IN THE NEDERLAND
01 July 2002 / Promo / 3 TRK CD
:: David R Black ::
David R Black tread a line that acknowledges commercial rock, but which also ensures there’s a filthy blend of 80’s gothic melodrama and some plain punk rock values

HOW TO BE A LADY
01 July 2002 / Promo / 4 TRK CD
:: We Start Fires ::
Got the looks, got the sound – very good stuff and worth investigating

STRAIGHT UP
01 July 2002 / Demo / 3 TRK CDR
:: Zenfo ::
Airplayable, chartworthy, exciting and enjoyable speaker busting material - a demo that is possibly that close to perfection

ON THE RUN
01 July 2002 / Demo / 2 TRK CDR
:: Mazeppa ::
A good debut - maybe with just two songs they haven’t been able to get up enough steam but with the strong melodies and an insistence on interesting song structures this is a good notch up from the norm

DEAD MEN DON’T VOTE
01 July 2002 / Promo / 4 TRK CD
:: Smiling Piranha ::
Lancashire seaside sharp toothed sprats could actually come close to maybe being a dead cert
