> 29. Jay Farrar (ex-Son Volt/Uncle Tupelo) ThirdShiftGrottoSlack (EP)Let me guess, you weren't a fan of _Sebastapol_? The EP consists of tracks
left over from the album and as such isn't bad. The piano-based song (at
this point titles and lyrics from Farrar are a blur to me) may get on
The releases ranked above that I'm anticipating the most are the Neko Case,
Mekons and Kelly Willis discs. I think the Linda Thompson disc had a July
release and isn't on the list, but that's damn good as well.
> don't know 'em:Muckraking humorist, and a natural fit on a label run by Danny Goldberg.
> Paul Krassner Irony Lives (Artemis)
> Pulp We Love Life (Sanctuary/Rough Trade)Veteran UK popsters, on what appears to be a resurrection of Rough Trade's
US branch. Rough Trade was a big part of my listening diet in the late 80s.
> Victory at Sea The Good Night (Kimchee)Mathy, noisy rock. Many arpeggios.
> Franklin Bruno A Cat May Look at a Queen (Absolutely Kosher)Bruno writes very witty jazzy/folky singer songwriter stuff.
> Kahil El'Zabar Love Outside of Dreams (Delmark)Onetime (and maybe present?) head of Chicago's Association for the
Advancement of Creative Musicians, he's a longtime jazz percussionist who's
led the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble (which sounds like some of Threadgill's
Air and Sextet work) and his own Ritual Trio.
> Rob Mazurek Silver Spines (Delmark)Chicago jazz horn player who appears on most Thrill Jockey/Jim O'Rourke
> Saturnalia Trio/Quartet Mercury Rising (New Weave)Hippie-ish medieval music/new age music. I think I'd rather hear the Andy
> Steve Tibbetts A Man About a Horse (ECM)One of the louder acts on ECM, Tibbetts makes electric guitar soundscapes
that fans of Sonny Sharrock and Alan Licht may enjoy.
- Yeah, kind of! Of course, I already sold the record back, so I can't
listen to it *again* to be sure. <g>
