LOVE CHILD review by JAY HINMAN, Editor
This was Jay’s second zine in two years and he’s never really stopped since. He’s infected. That’s why he’s delivering unto the world Dynamite Hemorrhage #2 in late 2014, so get your toilet seat ready - that’s where these print things are supposed to be read, or did you forget?
Mind you, any person with an internet portal thing and a printer could download and print out Superdope #2, which Jay offers gratis in PDF form at…
AZALiA SNAiL/SEBADOH review by SUPERDOPE contributor TOM LAX
We’ve been hittin’ the footnotes pretty hard, so we’ll just quietly grace your Saturday night with this nugget from Tom Lax, who you can find easily in our fuckinrecordreviews archives. Likewise, Sebadoh and Superdope are well represented.
According to her Facebook ‘About’ page, AZALiA SNAiL is “Winner of the LA Weekly Music Award in 2000. Azalia began performing music, recording avant pop albums, gaining recognition as a pioneering force in the underground “lo-fi” movement of the 1990’s. In 2012, she debuted her new project LoveyDove with Dan West.”
The records indicate this is the first actual fuckin’ record review we posted, although it’s hard to tell given the way tumblr lays out the archive. (Thought it was Jay Hinman from Superdope, guess not.) Anyway, unretoutched and never-before-reblogged, here it is again.
BEST REASON TO WRITE A FUCKIN’ RECORD REVIEW TODAY! (7/14/14):
PIECE WAR Apathy lathe 10” (Epic Sweep, New Zealand - 2014)
If you look closely at the Piece War bandcamp screen shot above - under the “supported by” banner - the Piece War patron all the way to the left is tumblr’s very own Jay Hinman, he of Dynamite Hemorrhage, Agony Shorthand, Beer Samizdat, The Hedonist Jive and…Superdope! We stalk Jay as well as anyone (just like we do with urbankill and rockscissorsgun), regularly downloading his Dynamite Hemorrhage podcast the same way we use to mark up these yellowing zines with dots (have it) and checks (need it) and x’s (fuck that, throw it back) back in the days of ballpoint pens and paper. Nowadays we bookmark, you see, and bookmark we did in response to Dynamite Hemorrhage Episode #40! (mr. goodbysunballbeat us to the lathe too.)
Roaring out of the DH #40gate was PIECE WAR, who we sorta knew from kissing up to and researching the new Coolies 7” three weeks ago, not to mention our deep appreciation for anything on Epic Sweep. But “Call On Me” was DH #40’s second cut and WOW, were we pasted to the wall by the duo’s King Loser surf desperation…these two crack the bones of Chris Heazlewood but good. Shame on us for waiting so long to gnaw accordingly. Puts so much of that Burger Records finger sandwich food to shame.
