Returning for a more listener-friendly commercial sound, Joey finds her first collaborations with four popular composers, all of whom help to deliver a solid, but unspectacular commercial album that helped Joey secured a number of awards at the various music awards. After a series of albums by usual producer Shu Man that focused on connecting individual tracks with contrived but effective interludes, Close Up returns to a simple, track line-up that builds on a simple "fast track-ballad-ballad-fast track" order.
It opens energetically with ad tune "Bursting with Joy" Track 1 , Joey's first collaboration with "hip-pop" producer Hanjin Chan. Despite a gratuitous cameo by Hanjin, his team delivers a fun track that gets Close Up to a good start.
By no means a creative breakthrough for Joey or Eric Kwok, it's still pleasant to hear Joey deliver a break-up ballad that is nowhere as tragic as those she usually delivers. Eric Kwok's second contribution, "Undressing" Track 8 , is obviously written as a side track and fits in well with the generally pleasant tone of the album.
Equally successful is her first collaboration with Pong Nan, who delivers a solid ballad with "One Lover One Lesson" Track 3 , despite some unnecessary producing touches such as strange electronic chirps in the verses. Anyway, MRRWicks ass, always has and always will. When we got the zine, it turned out to be a Christian publica- tion, a fact which was not mentioned in the MRR re- view.
Under- standably upset at mistakenly ordering this nonsense based on MRR s recommendation , she re- turned the zine to the Christians, advising them in the process to please take their Jesus-nonsense out of punk rock. And getting good reviews at that! Why the trepida- tion or approval? However, where I live, and in plenty of other places, the Christians have in effect taken over the local punk scene!
Basi- cally, what I am asking is why a Chris- tian can send his non-punk-related Christian magazine to MRR and ex- pect to get a good review? Bye now.
I remember hemming and hawing for a few minutes as to whether or not I should mention it. I should have. Indifferent seems more appropriate to me. Some people thought it was great, some thought it sucked. Sorry you had a bad experience because of my review.
Not every reviewer agrees with you and methat every Christian release is complicit with the bad stuff you can read in the Bible. Maximum has been criticized for I being too easy on fucked-up shit and for jumping all over petty issues. I expect that we will continue to hear it ] from both sides, which is fine.
When you are critical of stuff, you gotta expect people will be critical of you. Post- mark your reply by the 15th of every month for the following month's issue. Is there a place for Christianity in the punk community?

But then again, sheep probably say the same thing about us. Then someone went and cloned monkeys. Same thing. With that door opened, we all know that cloning people is not far behind. At all. While questions about the "master race," genetic engineer- ing, harvesting organs for transplants, and bringing back Hitler are hot topics for conversation, I think the following conversations are much more timely and important.
All that scientific spec- ulation may be fun, like wondering if an asteroid is gonna hit us. But that's not what's really on everyone's mind. The following is. It's about nineteen degrees out- side, and for warmth I'm only wearing my leather jacket with the broken zip- per.
Evan, on the other hand, is wear- ing a warm down coat, snug knit cap, those kinda gloves O. Simpson wore but lost behind his house and boots. I wonder if this punk rock image he carries will damage the band.
Tabb," says Evan, "why does a dog lick himself? That we are standing in front of the Mars Bar in the East Vil- lage. The last stop before hell. A bar where Bowery bums, yuppies, punk rockers and Euro-trash can call home. A place where you can piss on the floor and throw up on the person next to you, and it's okay.
A place where we've seen the likes of Keanu Reeves and Matt Army hang out. And most im- portantly, a place that has Furious George on the jukebox. We love the kids from Jersey.
And their bands. Sam's band is the Hysterics. Mike at eighteen is also from Jersey. He's named after Mike Blank, the singer of The Blanks If he were eighteen. Mike at eighteen's band is The Jerk-Offs. Mike at eighteen gets confused a lot. Then Sam goes on to explain to us that Mike at eighteen has been a bit brain damaged lately. Probably from drinking all that cough medicine to get a buzz. In the '70's it was huffing glue.
Now it's imbibing cough medicine. Punk rock. The kids just kinda look at us like we're weird. The conversation of course turns to masturbation. How many times a day? Or an hour? Magazine, videos, or memories?
Then we get to the real question. The answer of the joke. Evan smiles and nods. Sam looks like he's in shock. Mike at eighteen looks confused. I explain that I once saw porno actor Ron Jeremy do it in a video and it looked easy.
Only it wasn't. Sam just looks at me and shrugs his shoulders. I explained how I tried to do it by lean- ing down, trying to touch my lips and mouth to my penis like Ron Jeremy, but my neck just wouldn't stretch far enough.
I then explain how I tried it by putting my legs and butt ur against the wall, and then tried to reacr my penis that way.
I was almost able to touch the tip with my tongue. Or my nose. Sam and Mike at eighteen just stare at me. Like you guys have never tried it?
They both nod their heads no. That it is just another form of masturbation, and that there is nothing wrong with being gay, anyway. We all agree. We continue to talk about how I had a stiff neck for two weeks and had to tell everyone I pulled it playing guitar or something. We have a few good laughs. Then the Sisters Grim walk up to us. They're dressed about as warm as me. To Victoria and Marisa.
Two identical twins who look exactly alike. So much so that I have known them for like six years and still can't tell who is who. Even when they are on stage playing in their band, named, of course. The Sisters Grim. They both are about five-three, have long black curlyish hair and are cute. Especially in their hot pants and platform shoes.
I explain to them that Mike at eighteen, Sam and me are out here freezing to death, and Evan the pussy is all warm in his non-punk rock clothes. They both laugh. T ogether. At the same time. It's like they have one mind between them. One mind, two mouths.
Then I get an idea. A light bulb lights up above my head. I look inside the Mars Bar and see the bartender flipping the switch near the door. I'm curious. They both look at me, then at Evan and the kids. Then they say good- night and walk away. I explain that I wished they would have answered. That it would proba- bly be okay if they had sex with each other because they are identical. That they both came from the same sperm and same egg.
That they are both the same person. They just nave different names. I tell them that whether or not they have had different experiences, they have the same body. Therefore, if they like went down on each other, it'd be like going down on themselves. I think. I think about it.
Long and hard. Then I think about Evan's question. Some day you might have the chance. And harder. What if there was another George Tabb who was, well, me?
Same height, same weight, same brain, same penis, same everything. Would I go down on him? And if I aid, would that make me gay or bisexual or whatever? Or would that be masturbation? I asked this question to my step- dad, Nick, on the phone a couple of days ago. His answer bothered me. Are you trying to tell me you're gay? I admitted I was. Then I explained how I once tried to give myself a blow job, and now, with the advent of clon- ing, I might be able to.

Friday 27 March Saturday 28 March Monday 30 March Tuesday 31 March Wednesday 1 April Thursday 2 April Friday 3 April Saturday 4 April Sunday 5 April Monday 6 April A fascinating blow-out that has me on my knees in admiration - gargantuan man, gargantuan.
On we go with many highs, most notable of which are the bass dominated 'Special Offer' and the erupting Hell of 'What Did I Say', a volcano of tempestuous shit flinging liable to boil yer skin right off your bewildered framework and give the charred skeleton a mighty kickin' for good measure - what a zenith.
A classic is thrown in with the mood laden anthem 'I'm So Sick Monday Morning ' being a ditty I play on a consistent basis and one that has fine emotive value and really rings true with the early week start so many have to go through.
A melancholy strained strut that finds hope in the bleakness and an eternal defiance that rises from the ashes of defeat and hangs on in there with grit, raucousness and some spunky attitude. What finer penultimate track is needed? We shut down with the positive and never say die gem of 'Move The World', a song that is always better than you remember and one, no matter how many times you play it, raises the head, stiffens the pecker and reinvigorates the inner fight - perfect.
I was an Airbomb fan still am , the 2 viewings I had confirmed their brilliance and I consider the loss of this crew a major blow to the underground scene that quite often throws up some absolutely memorable listening experiences.
This album donates more than its share of quality and with the feedback, hard focus and earthy delivery is one I will certainly hold dear to my acoustic heart forever. Is it wrong to pick a compilation as a classic album choice? I care not anyway! I purchased this release from BYO Records 14 years ago from a shop in Rochdale and have always rated it as a collective gem worthy of numerous spins over the noise laden years. It captures a time when the scene was, primarily, on its arse and just before the dawn of the festival period when gutter gigs would suffer further and as a result, many fine bands, as found here, would suffer too.
This is a gritty collection of music played by some severe stalwarts of a flickering scene that tried their hardest not be counted out no matter how many times they were knocked off their feet. The variety and talent on show here is testament to a desperately overlooked era that had much to say and much skill to be appreciated - here is my belated nod.
We open with a cut from the famous drama 'Made In Britain' and then Goober Patrol tear out a questioning piece that really puts all our pathetic everyday values under the spotlight. The scene is set - tonsils are flared and the CD never really looks back. Fine stuff and only 5 tracks done. The closing 5 are brilliant with the picks being 'This Is A High' by The Tone, a definite feel good number, Sophism by Joe 90, a scuttling gem, 'Turn It Off', by the awesome Airbomb , a real concrete number from a fine album and highly powerful 'live' band.
Most units alas have gone down the shitter which, for me, must be a lesson learnt - do not neglect quality and get yer head out of yer arse and stop admiring the same old, same old. How wrong they were! What we get is nothing less than gobby street urchin ravings that contributes to one of those early efforts that was most definitely for the bloke off the street.
This is dramatic loutish noise and one that set a precedent for many bands to chase after. Postage cost can't be calculated. Please enter a valid postcode.
