These Things Take Time: Tunabunny & Minima Moralia
Nothing Tunabunny does is accidental. I’ve listened to the group’s new album, Minima Moralia, for the past month and started this review at least half a dozen times. I’ve embraced it as a new classic and, metaphorically at least, ripped … Continue reading
Nothing For Nothing
So here’s the situation: for the past month I’ve been struck with the worst writer’s block I’ve had in a long time. There’s plenty to write about, and even a good amount of stuff I’m interested in writing about—a necessary, … Continue reading
Four Part Partch
The best thing I did this week so far was throw on the headphones and watch this four-part Harry Partch PBS special. If I could go back in time I would personally thank KPBS-TV (San Diego) for producing this. It’s … Continue reading

To Hum Their Song Again
I haven’t paid attention to any records in the past two weeks other than David Comes To Life by the ten-years-old-this-month Fucked Up and JEFF The Brotherhood‘s We Are The Champions. OK, so only two records in two weeks is … Continue reading

Dangerous Minds wins the blue ribbon for best typographical error. Yep, them dusty ‘ol Black Flag boys sure were breaking ground back in the late 19th century. Hardly anyone could stand ’em but no town pokey could hold ’em. They’ll … Continue reading
