THE STRANGEST TRIBE: How a Group of Seattle Rock Bands Invented Grunge!!

October 26th, 2011

So I got name checked in Steven Tow’s new book The Strangest Tribe: How a Group of Seattle Rock Bands Invented Grunge as well as this article about it in A.V. Club Philadelphia. I’ve read about half so far and give it the general thumbs up. I think Steven got the groove of it.

PRESS GALORE – PTOLMAIC TERRASCOPE – THIS IS BOOK’S MUSIC – PLANET TRASH – THE GREEN PAJAMAS – SIGOURNEY REVERB – THE ICONS!

October 7th, 2011

Whew – lotsa press today!

First, nice Jeff interview in Terrascope! Next, not one but three swell reviews from This Is Book’s Music! - The Green Pajamas, Sigourney Reverbplus those danged old Icons! Finally, though The Weekly’s Reverb didn’t do one of those dinky reviews for the PJs like they said they would, Jack Endino name-checked me in his column. Thanks, Jack!

If that ain’t enuff The Icons got a good panning from the Dutch guys (Planet Trash) that thought they stunk in the Sigourney review the other day as follows (sorta translated):

That a well-known link reaches after more than 20 years at each other for a reunion is to that, but as also unknown link to start there the end is missing. Van The Icons I had never heard. The link had been confessed in Seattle and neighbourhood. We have it then over the years 1983 up to and including 1986. Afterwards it was concerning and from. Suffered up to a couple year. Then there reünietour came and now therefore even a complete plate. Kindest 16 numbers must With Destiny become on Appointment doorgeploegd. I have tried it, really where, but it has not succeeded me. After eight numbers I have stopped, to take second half of the album to the days afterwards fragmentary to me. Not that Appointment With Destiny a terrible plate has become, already it much do not make a difference, but all numbers on the plate are below standard. Tel then a complete moderate warbler, studiotrucjes knows even none talentloze gebral be veil. The cover of the plate is ontstijgen some that the means half-measure weet. Some link deserves no second life, The Icons are of that link.

SIGOURNEY GETS THE SHORT DAGGER!

October 5th, 2011

Sigourney made the short reviews section in Portland’s Dagger as follows:

SIGOURNEY REVERB- BEES IN YOUR BED BAD- GREEN MONKEY- Seattle bunch who don’t take themselves (or much else) very seriously. This is occasionally hooky and raw with a good snotty attitude. My pick to click was “Whose Yer Muse?”. www.greenmonkeyrecords.com
