TRUMANS WATER review by MARC MASTERS, Editor
Trumans Water were originally from San Diego, CA. Their Wikipedia page is a mess!
Their blat of activity in the first half of the 90’s was impressive. They seemed to slow down a bit at the turn of the century, but picked up steam again in the past few years.
Trumans Water’s most recent album is 2010’s O Zeta Zunis on Asthmatic Kitty.
Singer Glen Galloway penned some reviews for Superdope, which we’ll post in due time. Glenn’s project SOUL-JUNK continues apace.
Marc Masters is a writer who has been supportive of Fuckin’ Record Reviews, for which we are thankful.

VOCOKESH review by MARC MASTERS, Editor
Marc is such a sweetie pie these days, but we miss his former negativo vibe. The Vocokesh review above is practically sweet compared to what he wrote about AmRep releases, but we’ve signed a contract saying we can’t post them until the devil takes Marc’s soul. Then we’ll have fun!

NOW PLAYING!
Thought you’d like to know that Fuckin’ Record Reviews is actively participating in the online eye candy endeavor NOW PLAYING, launched by former Crank editor and current Wire writer Marc Masters. This is a Facebook group that encourages grown men and women to post pictures of the LPs (or cassettes or compact discs) now playing in their place of residence (or car or place of business). You read that right and we are doing it. As Fuckin’ Record Reviews is an institution posting reviews and ephemera from old fanzines, we see participation in NOW PLAYING as consistent with the spirit of our past work.
By the way, we’re posting at NOW PLAYING under our birth certificate name, Aging Baldini. So now you know who we really are.
On an associated point, our NOW PLAYING post today [4/2/14] was LIQUOR STORE’s In The Garden LP on Almost Ready Records. No members of NOW PLAYING have liked our post yet though. But that’s okay. It’s not like we’re sensitive enough to worry about these social networking micro aggressions and would just create this post to get you to go like our post somewhere else. That’d be totally lame.
Speaking of Liquor Store, did we ever tell you how much we love them and their NJ hoagies? No, we’re not making sexual innuendos. Fuckin’ Record Reviews is a PG rated project! Liquor Store actually brought a NJ hoagie to their record release party last fall and it was delish.
The video below is not from that show (with the hoagie), but this song is on In The Garden.
By the way, Liquor Sore were on The Carson Daly Show two nights ago! For real!
They also have an upcoming show in NYC on 4/6/14 at Death By Audio with ATLANTIC THRILLS and SAVANTS!
