ZUSAAN KALI FASTEAU review by JIMMY JOHNSON, Editor (apologies for the right side blur)
Our earlier post this afternoon exhorting readers to push Fuckin’ Record Reviews over the 1000 followers point in exchange for a gratuitous Lisa Suckdog pic (with friends) failed miserably. Used to be that Lisa posts were golden, what the fuck? We even lost a couple followers. 
While we thought we weren’t too proud to beg, maybe it’s just best to let this stuff happen naturally. This is ‘murca after all and the people, they love to tear the great ones down, don’t they? So, with all the dumb excitement aside, let’s return to the Jimmy Johnson festschrift, as he is our initial UNSUNG HERO OF ROCKNROLL WRITING!
Why is Jimmy crowned thusly? Let’s let Heather Leigh do the talking, she of the dizzy harlequins at Volcanic Tongue and a conjurer of combustible cluster in her own right:

We take a brief respite from the Jimmy Johnson festschrift in the hopes of attaining a numerical “achievement”… 

  • fuckinrecordreviews aka Perspectives From A Dying Tribe is 5 followers away from the big 1000 kahuna! Who figured we’d be so appreciated? Thank you and you and you…Now let’s see if this pic from the 1989 Lisa Suckdog Tour Diary: Snakes May Be Forever; Clothes Are Not will put us over the top (cheap to use “sexy pee stories” as incentive, but we like to think we know our audience).
  • Btw, Lisa has a new book out - it’s about money and empowerment - and she’ll be doing a book signing on 5/2/14 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The Facebook event page is here. “Coach Class Musicians Egg, Eggs make their New Bedford debut.”

JUNE TABOR review by JIMMY JOHNSON, Editor
Why are we celebrating Jimmy this week? He’s an UNSUNG HERO OF ROCKNROLL WRITING, that’s why.
YouTube is really delivering lately. The linked video below is of June Tabor from 1990 and damn if our faces aren’t frozen! Two violins and June’s beautiful voice and no synths - tho’ we kind of wish Hermann Nitsch would jump out from behind the cathedral doors and douse the crowd in pig’s blood.  Give yourself a treat. You may be in tears by the end of the first song.

GLORIOUS DIN review by JIMMY JOHNSON, Editor

  • We’ve had a couple of semi-regular features here at Fuckin’ Record ReviewsLetter To A Fanzine Friday! (on hiatus) and This Date In Fuckin’ Record Reviews History.Today, we introduce another, one we’ve been sitting on for a while…(and with full apologies/ acknowledgment to Nick Tosches)…UNSUNG HEROES OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL WRITING!
  • Our inaugural recipient: JIMMY JOHNSON
  • While many of our featured writers have maintained relatively public profiles in the intervening years, Jimmy disappeared behind the scrim almost 20 years ago to operate the FE mail order, then website. As far as we can tell, his public pen all but ceased by the mid 90’s, the few exceptions being the unmistakable (but uncredited) mark of his acid flow for select reviews at the website.
  • As one can read above, Jimmy was to a certain extent inspired by Byron Coley, but his wit was even more lacerating, in the style of the time. We forget who coined the phrase East Coast bile, but Jimmy could shred when necessary, with apparent ease. His intelligence easily sized up a conflict revealed by the record at hand and utilized the fuckin’ record review of the moment as catalyst for larger, more global refrains (even if just targeting assholes).
  • Jimmy’s tale is probably well known to geezers of a certain vintage, as he acquiesced to a revealing interview in Disturbed #2 in 1995. However, the most anyone sees of the guy outside of the FE warehouse is in six second Vine clips Kristin Anderson posts of him in the paint, driving to the hoop. Anyway, when we started FRR way back in July 2013, Marc Masters wrote something about Jimmy on his Facebook page (and we paraphrase), "I sure wish he’d write again." SO DO WE! 
  • We’ll be celebrating Jimmy Johnson all week!
  • GLORIOUS DIN were Eric Cope, Doug Heeschen, Pete H and one Jay Paget, who everyone knows from his work with Barbara Manning in World Of Pooh and ultimately the best band in the world for a moment, THINKING FELLERS UNION LOCAL 282.
  • Surprisingly excellent and complete Glorious Din live show from 1986 on YouTube, which sez, Glorious Din opened for the Flaming Lips at The Farm on October 12, 1986. The lights were off for the first few minutes- video is visible around 4:25.”

Why we don’t post reviews from MRR or Flipside, from October 2013…

VOLCANO SUNS review by Byron Coley
…the basic premise: hardcore sucks. This does not. If there were just one reason Fuckin’ Record Reviews doesn’t feature the pens of Maximum Rocknroll or Flipside reviewers from yesteryear, it’s that.
Let’s rewind for some personal and historical context.
We were questioned by one of our twizzler followers on 10/4/13, who asked, “When you gonna post something from Flipside or Maximum R&R?” Fair enough question. We answered, “Probably never. Not our cup of zine, then or now. Don’t let that stop u tho’.”
Well, one thing lead to another and soon enough he called us a name and then he offered the following rejoinder: “Yeah, I don’t know what you think you know, but those zines covered quite a wide range of music @ 88-94.”
"Yeah, I don’t know what you think you know." Uh, okay, here’s what we think we know: His rejoinder’s just the sorta regressive dopiness we recall about MRR, and to a lesser extent, Flipside - chest puffing absolutist prattling lacking any hint of the innuendo, ambiguity, mystery or potentiality that makes writing worthwhile. It's why, from the perspective of this dying tribe, we never cared for MRR or Flip Side in the first place, nor did we save copies for more than a minute, much less 25 years. That’s not to say we never ever found anything of value in them (hey, Eugene Chadbourne, right?) and certainly Flip Side had some value during its original ‘77 - ‘81 run, but fuck if we can remember any of it. Besides, any coverage of worthwhile bands seemed totally superfluous to the coverage received in the zines we endorse here at FRR.
…the basic premise: hardcore sucks. This does not. Coley’s punchline makes you wonder, right? Is he serious? Or is it a reflection - and refutation - of hardliner hardcore’s inflexible postulates woven into a celebration of Volcano Suns’ joie? We still don’t know. But like so many of Coley’s best lines, it stuck with us across decades.
Having not paid attention to either one of those zines for 25 years though, we can’t offer any more than our faded and jaded first impressions. Who knows, maybe MRR evolved into a zine the caliber of Ptolemaic Terrascope or Superdope and we missed the boat. Jared from the Black Lips doesn’t think so, however. He said in this 5/3/09 article from Clash, "…Maximum Rock N Roll, which is the most bullshit piece of fuck garbage poor excuse for a magazine ever. They’re like, ‘Oh, we want to keep everything ‘authentic’…’ And I’m like, fuck them! Don’t use a computer, don’t use a car, don’t drink Coca-Cola. Move to a field, grow your own food… fuck that and fuck them!” Okay then. 
Mind you, it’s not like we’re sitting around here wringing our hands about this sorta stuff. But the twizzler guy did ask, then gave us a hard time when he no like our answer. So, you know.
Good Samaritan digression: Don’t let his grumpy twizzler facade fool you. Tom Carter attempted to keep the peace and if ever gets tired of being the outsider supreme healer we know him to be, he has a future in mediation strategies.
Damn it, all these words and we haven’t even mentioned how much we love VOLCANO SUNS. Merge had the great sense to spend some of that Arcade Fire windfall on reissuing remastered and expanded versions of The Bright Orange Years and All Night Lotus Party in 2009. But no Bumper Crop!? What gives?

ERIC HYSTERIC reviews by JIMMY JOHNSON, Editor
From Wikipedia: “Neben seiner Arbeit als Solo-Künstler (seit 1971) war Hysteric Mitglied bei S.C.U.M (1978 bis 1979), den Vomit Visions (1979 bis 1982) und der Frankfurter Krawall-KomboDer Durstige Mann (1982 bis 1995). Außerdem schrieb Hysteric für diverse Frankfurter Fanzines, darunter „Same Old Song“ und „Ultra Hard Core Punk Sounds“, und war (u. a. beim englischen Zig Zag Magazine und der deutschen Musikzeitschrift Sounds) für seine Leserbriefe berüchtigt.
Erstes öffentliches Projekt von Hysteric war die Punkband S.C.U.M (Löhnberg / Gießen). Nach einem (vom Kunststudenten-Publikum bejubelten) desaströsen Auftritt im Jugendzentrum Gießen emigrierte Hysteric nach London. Bei sporadischen Besuchen in der alten Heimat nahm er mit den Vomit Visions, die im Juni 1979 aus den Resten von S.C.U.M. hervorgegangen waren, diverse Songs auf, und versorgte die Punks auf dem Frankfurter Flohmarkt mit den neuesten Platten aus Großbritannien und den USA.”

Nach einem (vom Kunststudenten-Publikum bejubelten) desaströsen Auftritt im Jugendzentrum Gießen emigrierte Hysteric nach London. Bei sporadischen Besuchen in der alten Heimat nahm er mit den Vomit Visions, die im Juni 1979 aus den Resten von S.C.U.M. hervorgegangen waren, diverse Songs auf, und versorgte die Punks auf dem Frankfurter Flohmarkt mit den neuesten Platten aus Großbritannien und den USA.”

We could not envision a more enthusiastic display of negative encouragement.
