BEAT HAPPENING review by JAY HINMAN, Editor

From the WFMU BT Express: Tuesday, 8/26/14, 3pm - 6pm: Guest DJ Tom Lax from Siltbreeze Records “Another great annual visit from Siltbreeze Records honcho Tom Lax, bringing yet more esoteric, uncategorizable and otherworldly slabs of wax to confound even the most obscuro-hound WFMU listeners. Even after several years of guest DJ sessions, we’ve barely scratched the surface of the fabulous motherlode of DIY recordings Tom has in the vaults; expect high grade entertainment, and of course, uploaded photos on the playlist page of the great cover art from the wax he brings.”

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.”
LoveyDove are here and tour Europe in October 2013!
LoveyDove also play Rush Riddles at 9:00 PM in Los Angeles this upcoming Wednesday 8/28/13.

CONFLICT 49 (Winter 1989) pg 21

Review by Gerard Cosloy, Editor

  • 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. goodbysunball beat us to the lathe too.)
Roaring out of the DH #40 gate 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.    
Piece War = Tina Pihema of The Coolies on guitar +  Barbara Rocha and they were interviewed 4/23/14 by Under The Radar.

JAY HINMAN, Editor

  • That’s about as strong an inaugural issue as one could hope, even if it didn’t have any fuckin’ record reviews (but of course it did).
  • This 12/31/12 Dynamite Hemorrhage post about Superdope #6 has download links to Superdopes #1-#5 too, or shall we say, had. Clicking through leads to one of those repossessed word association sites. It’s not like Jay to skip out on his former hedonistjive.com domain bill, so what gives?   
  • 5/31/14 UPDATE from Scandinavia (Norwegian accent version): Jay sez, "It’s simply because I couldn’t figure out how to effectively RENEW the domain bill. All links from www.hedonist-jive.com will work. Thanks FRR for the good word.”

Last month we celebrated JIMMY JOHNSON as Fuckin’ Record Reviews’ inaugural UNSUNG HERO OF ROCKNROLL WRITING. There was a Forced Exposure discography at the end of the Jimmy Johnson interview in which Byron Coley tossed off comments about each release, with Disturbed editor Robert Plante adding unauthorized liftage from other sources. 
The Minutemen review above does not appear to include Coley commentary, but instead swipes an equally sharp JAY HINMAN review from Superdope #7 (1994).
