MAC BLACKOUT- 'The Rabid Babies' CD.  Here it is, the new CD from MAC BLACKOUT of the Functional Blackouts and Daily Void.  Reference points? Kraftwerk, Devo, Screamers, Big Black, Chrome. But they should only be viewed as reference points because MAC BLACKOUT doesnt really sound like any of them. Thankfully you cant really pigeonhole MAC BLACKOUT as another one dimensional dark and depressed bedroom renaissance man. Ya a lot of his songs do definitely have a very bleak, pessimistic view of the world. But there are other songs on The Rabid Babiesthat are more care free, silly and almost playful. Normally, Id be pretty quick to dismiss songs like that as cheeky, emotional d*ou*che-baggery, but theyre written and presented in a way that you cant help but love em. Just take the whistling chorus in Fifteen Minutes Of Famous Screamsor the off kilter Xylophone tinkering in Pocket For Everything'.  At the surface and on their own, theyd probably sound really corny. But in the context of these two songs, they really do add to the unique appeal of each tune and throw a nice curve ball into the standard synth, punk, wierdo song paradigm. And its that what you hear is what you getaesthetic that really resonates with the listener and makes MAC BLACKOUT seem more humane amongst all the mechanical, instruments he uses to create these masterpieces. Ya, Im sure MAC does go through his fair share of emotional hard times where he hones his mood into intense, darkwave expressions-of-the-moment as heard on numerous songs on the record. But unlike many other artists he also documents some of his more elated, joyous times in songs like Molten Emissionsand DarlinDont You See. After all life isnt a war zone every day and hes not afraid to let you in on his twisted take on happiness.

The Streetwalkin' Cheetahs- One More Drink LP ~RAINBOW SPLATTER SPECIAL EDITION LIMITED TO 100!

Los Angeles' the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs spew a raw, undistilled slab of sweet ‘n nasty sonic tonic on their 7th studio album 'One More Drink'. The Cheetahs reignite the raw Detroit sounds of the the Stooges and fellow down under countrymen Radio Birdman blasting through 11 red-hot tracks of over-amplified nihilism showing even further dexterity in the world of thick riffs and song writing versatility. ‘One More Drink’ sounds like the good kind of mid 70’s pre-punk Riff 'n Roll record hopped-up on a heavy dose of classic 80's, white lightnin’ radio Rock. They mix an absolutely perfect Rock 'n Roll cocktail here...
