Sweet Spanking Dreams by Dame Darcy

BANANAFISH [blue cover] 1991 (inside front cover) 

SEYMOUR GLASS, Editor

  • One of the many notable cross collaborators between Bananafish and Rollerderby back in the day was DAME DARCY.
  • The agogish density of Dame Darcy’s stroke is self-evident. She lives online in full glory at…http://damedarcy.com/

BEST REASON TO WRITE A FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEW TODAY…
KOIRAN NÄKÖINEN NAINEN Kesämuistoja 7” EP (Blast Of Silence, Finland - 2014 )
Totally wicked amphetamine pop collapse from Joni Ekman via blastofsilence (they proffer M.O.T.O. records too!).
Matt K at Yellow Green Red recently scratched his scalp about a reissued Bill Direen record, wondering, “Is like every third guy [in New Zealand] some sort of psychedelic blue-collar svengali raised on Velvets bootlegs and the concept of punk?”  This has nothing to do with Joni Ekman’s zero-to-the-floor four track garble other than to allow me to poach it for a parallel query: "Is like every third guy [from Finland] some psych punk social democrat svengali raised on a diet of accelerated Television Personalities?" Yea, I like Matt’s thing better too.   
Alternately, KNN are described by the proprietor of 80/81Records big cartel as “…economical power pop/punk side-project of Joni Ekman, vocalist/ drummer/ guitarist of The Achtungs.” Try our try our man at…

RABBITS WEDDING review by Art Black (Editor)

"I don’t want to be a critic and I find that putting question marks at the end of critical statements helps prevent that." - Mr. Urbankill (2014)

  • ABANDOS playing NYC tonight 10/16/14 at soon to be artisanally exiled Death By Audio, which could be of interest to those in proximity (to Death By Audio that is). Like Ausmuteants if they were more believably sinister and from Camden, NJ…With FOSTER CARE and RAT FIST!

The Abandos - Missing Chromosome

Ex-FNU Ronnies. From a recent self-released, self-titled 7”. Much improved from the Bruised Tongue release, which sounded…maybe a lil generic? I don’t want to be a critic and I find that putting question marks at the end of critical statements helps prevent that. This man has some positive critical input on the record, so maybe try him out.

The new record is not on Bandcamp, though, so I have no idea how to get you onto the record’s path.
