Least of the 3 from SST still gets 3

Ben-006CA52C

Another follow-up to my man (the other reviewer here) from VA - Here is the probably the weakest of the 3 SST releases, but still there are some great tunes - What Gets Heard and Whisperin' While Hollerin' especially. This is the most all-over-the-map release they have, but you know Watt/Hurley all-over-the-map is usually a good thing, so let your conscience be your guide. This record always felt like it was recorded in a rush between tours, to me. The brilliant Flyin the Flannel followed this frenzy, making it historically interesting as well.

The band has instrumental firepower and Crawford was a decent frontman but the material is ... not really there.

New This Week: Bear in Heaven, Dr. John, Phronesis & More

By J. Edward Keyes, Editor-in-Chief

Well, here we are. Another Tuesday, another batch of records. Let's not waste any more time, shall we? Lotus Plaza, Spooky Action at a Distance: More eerie, filmy, jangly pop music from Deerhunter's Lockett Pundt. I never fully connected with his main gig, but this sounds great - spooky and lo-fi, the kind of thing that might have come out on Captured Tracks if it wasn't for the high-wattage indie personality behind it. RECOMMENDED Dr. John, Locked… more »

They Say All Music Guide

fIREHOSE’s second release, 1987′s If’n, was a major improvement over their 1986 debut, Ragin’, Full On. And while their third album, 1988′s fROMOHIO, was another solid set and contained its share of highlights, it seemed to be cut from the same musical cloth as its predecessor rather than a true progression. Again, the playing is inspired, and the new band had already established an original, identifiable sound. The best tracks prove to be Ed Crawford originals — “In My Mind” and “Time with You” (the latter was an MTV video), while “Whisperin’ While Hollerin’” and “What Gets Heard” soon became concert staples. The band’s appreciation of folk shines through with a reading of the traditional black folk song “Vastopol” and the original “Liberty for Our Friend,” and drummer George Hurley takes center stage on a pair of short, unaccompanied drum solos — “Let the Drummer Have Some” and “‘Nuf That Shit, George.” Other highlights include the album opener “Riddle of the Eighties,” the funky “Mas Cojones,” the laid-back rock of “If’n” and “Understanding,” plus the lethargic album closer “The Softest Hammer.” – Greg Prato
