"Peter Gutteridge is a big deal Dunedin pop icon…[with] a knack for the grayer, more repetitive side of things that we haven’t heard previously…Marty rev counterpart, maybe, except there’s no phobia towards guitars or manually played percussion if need be…"

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 fuckinrecordreviewsviaConflict 50.
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.
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!
