PETER GUTTERIDGE review by Gerard Cosloy, Editor
On the occasion of Gutteridge’s first ever performance in the United States of America on 9/1/14, we reblog this archival moment from  fuckinrecordreviews via Conflict 50.
Brooklyn Vegan 8/27/14: “More news, though mainly just for folks in (or visiting) NYC. Peter Gutteridge happens to be in town and has been convinced to play a show while here — his first-ever American performance. Gutteridge spent time in original line-ups of both The Clean and The Chills before starting noise-rock band Snapper in the early ’90s. In 1989, he put out a solo album, Pure, which was reissued recently by 540 Records and which he’ll be performing in full at the show. You can stream that in full below.”
Review of Pure repurposed from one of our 12/24/13 birthday party posts for GC.
Pure was reissued in 2013 on deluxe double vinyl by the Chaos In Tejas people who also have something to do with the 540 Records label. Buy it here, along with the Impalers LP.

The internets have spoken and it seems Jacqui Delaney/ Dulany/ Cohen was never in STP. We’ve been laboring under a misapprehension for many years.  The STP singer was Jacqui Nimitz, who, the internets tell us, just so happened to have “very briefly succeeded Delaney in the Dustdevils.”  Nimitz is not on any Dustdevils records, however.
Thank you internets!

STP review by Tom Scharpling, Editor
Speaking as we were about forthright women in music, everyone and their kids should  know by now that Julia Cafritz was the bad ass in the original version of Pussy Galore.
Some people know about STP, which existed for a few minutes somewhere between Pussy Galore and the Action Swingers. 
A 2001 fanzine dedicated to Julia Cafritz? Yup, one exists: Julia Cafritz, She Ain’t No Bitch!
On parenting, Julia Cafritz offered this insight to the Village Voice in 2008, which holds true so much it hurts: ”With children, it’s like a lifetime of being a roadie. Sippie cups. If you don’t have that shit, they yell at you. And you don’t get paid. And you try to plan for every variable in as small a package as you can. I got everything in this little bag, and if you don’t have something, it’s trouble. In between being a roadie for my kid, real work—being a real person—becomes hidden. Because your children have no interest.”
STP also included late 80s NYC underground rock loyalists SALLY EDROSO of the under acknowledged HONEYMOON KILLERS and JAQUI DULANY aka JAQI DUSTDEVIL of DUSTDEVILS. The editors at Fuckin’ Record Reviews loved those bands and enjoyed their live skronk many, many  times.
Jaqi Dulany aka JACQUI COHEN ended up in CHA CHA COHEN, which you can read about in this somewhat misguided 2/26/99 article from The Independent. 
The Action Swingers were back in action for a day or two in 2013, though we don’t think Julia Cafritz was part of the fun.
Yea, we know, with so many loose ends, we really need to go long with the NYC bands of the era.  Maybe Summer 2014

As everyone knows, Tom Scharpling has been hosting The Best Show On WFMU since 2000 and the final show is 12/17/13. In celebration of Tom’s success, we bring it back to the place where it all began: slagging Albini in 18 Wheeler #4 cuz Albini was slagging jazz and collector scum in FE #17!
More, at Friends Of Tom
We can pretty much agree at this point that the Didjits did not save rock and roll.
But don’t take our word for anything, or Tom’s for that matter. You can still buy Forced Exposure #17 at Forced Exposure for $6.00 and check it all out yourself.

On his 9/14/13 Trash Flow Radio program, Ken Katkin said “City Slang,” as recorded by Sonic’s Rendezvous Band, may be the best seven inch in the history of rock. That’s what he said about it.
