"…this album is more about noises - the inner Pussy…"
BLACKJACK RECORDS CATALOGUE Fall/Winter 1997 (no page #/cover)
HARRY PUSSY review by Rubin Fiberglass, One of Many People Involved
We never said record catalogues were the equivalent of zines, but we didn’t say they weren’t either.
By the mid to late 90’s, when the good zine writ fab was drying up, catalogues served a useful function by stoking consumer desire, which was what the worthy zines did all along. Long before the Aquarius Records, Forced Exposure, Volcanic Tongue, Permanent Records, Goner, Mississippi and similar weekly email lists filled our electronic mail inboxes, we shut ins had the postage paid print catalogue. They were real  - and occasionally spectacular.

"Eventually, my role as debased A&R hack came to a grinding halt, mostly due to profound embarrassment on my part."

Stomach Ache confessional and NEEDLES review by Seymour Glass, Bananafish editor and contributor to Forced Exposure, BravEar, Chemical Imbalance and many others. 
According to Google, we have four Muckraker posts preceding this one. This is the first from issue #5.
NEEDLES was RRRon Lessard and…Bren’t Lewiis? Did not know that. Or, we did and totally forgot. Either way, the Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble had a very popular record on Siltbreeze in 2010. 
Oy, Stomach Ache Records.
Stomach Ache at Tedium House (which still exists)? Glad you asked.

☯ ☯ LETHA RODMAN MELCHIOR BENEFIT 1/18/14 ☯ ☯
Surely you’ve been studying our ✩BEST REASONS TO WRITE FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEWS 2013✩ list since it posted on 12/31/13 and noticed the very high placement of LETHA RODMAN MELCHIOR’S unprecedented LP of otherworldly collage Handbook For Mortals.
We were deeply penetrated by her thoughtful and seamless threading of familiar lilts and weirdly captures, so much so we listened to it daily since it arrived from the great Virginia cartel Little Big Chief sometime in  November. Unfortunately, LBC seem to be sold out of Handbook, but you can try Midheaven distro. It’s an essential record for soundsters of all stripes under the sun.
Speaking of which, there is a major benefit shindig for Letha on Saturday 1/18/14 at SECRET PROJECT ROBOT in Bushwick, so if you’re in the NYC area and are a soundster of any stripe under the sun, then this would be the event to attend.
Letha won’t be there, but her old bandmates from Ruby Falls who went on to form the ROGERS SISTERS after the former’s dissolution are playing, as are CRYSTAL STILTS, LOVE AS LAUGHTER and another ✩2013✩ list maker, ENDLESS BOOGIE. 
Facebook event page is in full effect at this link. Andrew Jacksons appreciated, but bitcoins will not be accepted (we’re guessing).
You really, really can’t get out? Your mitzvah awaits (i.e., consider a donation): http://melchiorfund.blogspot.com/ 
Otherwise, see you there!

Another best of list?  We thought we’d put all that to bed now that 1/1/14 has arrived -  you know, maybe it’s best to save some for next year.
Nah.
