A new project from ex-members of Belgium's way-fabuloso VICE BARONS, with about half the tunes being BARONS-style, ultra-suave, organ-driven dragstrip instros, and the other half some very rockin' vocal numbers that might be the missing link between RONNY & THE DAYTONAS, THE TRASHMEN and GARY USHER, and '70s New York bands like THE RAMONES, CRAMPS and HEARTBREAKERS!

MINGO 2000
"Busted in Reno"
MA 2004-1 LP $7.80
Their first release in over 2 years finds this incredibly wacky San Francisco instrumental-lounge group doing some it's craziest material ever. Can you imagine THE TIJUANA BRASS covering DICK DALE's "The Wedge?" And putting it right next to equally insane covers of tunes by MORRICONE, JOHN BARRY, HENRY MANCINI, THE BEATLES, and THE DOORS? I thought not. How about the theme from the "Hawaiian Eye" TV show (bet you haven't heard THAT one in a few years!), complete with loopy steel pedal guitar and tropical sound effects? Too cool...

"X-Minus-One"
AMPOP 205-2 CD $9.65
New Vancouver trio fronted by the ubiquitous MARK BRODIE, influenced by the science fiction radio dramas of the '40s and '50s, with lots of cheesy Farfisa and heavily reverbed surf guitar.

BLAST ROCKS, THE
"You're Fired"
PUG 029-2 CD $6.55
Happy fuzz guitar, toys, Casios, plastic trashcans, jars and snide cynic indie rock pride: 14 songs of worked out, tweaked K Records style punk rock and new wave jug band for all the genre freaks, unnerving and endearing at the same time. Do you have what it takes to hang in the guy/girl-attacking, coffee-cup-dysfunctional, hip, hip world of the BLAST ROCKS? Relate. Wonderful. Go blast rock. (S.P.A.M.)

DORY TOURETTE AND THE SKIRTHEADS

Dirty, ass licking, young girl fucking pop/early style rock and roll with a punk attitude and tons of rough edges, like the immortal EXPLOSIVE KATE but with a T-REX songwriting slant, a tackling of different genres that I haven't seen with a tongue going in and out of cheek this quickly since SOCKEYE, and beautiful execution. Do you want to belong, or do you want to listen to cool music? Throw away your leather pants, or at least poop them. (S.P.A.M.)
