ALLEGIANCE:
Heroes in the Making: CD
The best Blitz impersonators I've heard in years. The fact that they're from Japan makes this even more impressive. –jimmy (MCR, 157 Kamiagu Maizuru, Kyoto 624 Japan)


CELL BLOCK 5:
Push It: CD
Pretty run-of-the-mill punk/hardcore with a Dwarves influence. It's better than some, but still not particularly crucial to these ears. –jimmy (Industrial Strength, 2824 Regatta Blvd., Richmond, CA 94804)


WORTHLESS:
Which Side Are You On: CD
Nothing pleases me more than when a band accurately assesses just how crucial their music is to the underground with their name. Too cryptic? How's "Piss poor Rancid pretenders" sound? –jimmy (Metro, PO Box 1108, Pt. Pleasant Beach, NJ 08742)


VIGILANTES, THE:
No Destiny: CD EP
Oi/punk ala the Generators. Didn't float my boat too much. –jimmy (TKO, 4104 24th Street #103, SF, CA 94114)


VARIOUS ARTISTS:
Overload 2 Tribute to Metallica: CD
Black metal and Metallica do not a good marriage make. Maybe Slayer woulda been a better choice. Hell, how about Cryptic Slaughter? Haven't heard shit about them for decades. –jimmy (Dwell, PO Box 39439, LA, CA 90039)


VARIOUS ARTISTS:
Ska Chartbusters: 2X CD
With the exception of one band's rather inspired cover of "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go," this is a pretty sad couple o' discs. Same old shit, same old sound, same complete lack of originality. Ska these days is nearly as bad in its conformity as all them hair farmers were back in the '80s. –jimmy (Wolverine, Bismarckstr.65, 40210 Dusseldorf Germany)


VARIOUS ARTISTS:
Rock 'n' Roll Compilation: CD
Well, it's got various hues of the rock thang, from garage rock to punk to surf to country twang to a throwback to '70s soul. Some of the bands are good, some suck, and some just make you plain wonder why anyone bothered to record them. In short, a mixed bag. Features The Villains, The Veins, Ms. Rodeo USA, The Priests, White Cotton Panties, Q, The Vertigo-gos and others. –jimmy (Garage Pop, PO Box 88003, Rochester, NY 14618)


TRAILER PARK TORNADOS:
Heroes of the Hopeless: 7"
Lo-fi punk'n'roll. I imagine it has its charms, but I'm having a helluva time finding 'em right now. –jimmy (Big Neck, PO Box 8144, Reston, VA 20195)


TOO BAD EUGENE:
At Any Rate: CD
Who the fuck bankrolls crap like this? Think he's stupid enough to send me a signed blank check? –jimmy (Rock City, PO Box 2813, Silverdale, WA 98383-2813)


STARTER KIT:
Self-titled: CD
Boring as hell emo/college pop. –jimmy (M-Theory, PO Box 4357, Santa Clara, CA 95056)


SELLOUT POSERS:
Bad Mood Music: CD
This is one strange box o' cookies here. Take yer average hardcore band and poison their brains with way too much Birthday Party. A unique and very interesting take on a pretty rigid form, and how. –jimmy (f4thwave@aol.com)


SCHINDLER:
Transverse Mercator: CD
English indie-rock that wasn't as bad as I was expecting it to be. I still didn't think much of it, though. –jimmy (www.plastichead.com)


RICHIE WHITES, THE:
Stop Me Before I Kill Again: 7"
Kinda nondescript. The songs ain't bad, just unmemorable from this end of things. –jimmy (Rapid Pulse, PO Box 5075, Milford, CT 06460)


RED TOPS, THE:
Outta Money, Outta Luck, Outta Tune: CD EP
Pretty solid hardcore reminiscent of some of the stuff coming outta Southern California in the mid-'80s. –jimmy (theredtops@hotmail.com)


PRICKS, THE:
Self-titled: LP
An obvious bootleg of a 1981 demo by a New York band that apparently featured a pre-ZZ Top beard and multimillion-dollar record company Rick Rubin. Go figure. They sound a little like False Prophets and, save for a wretched cover of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love," they were pretty good. –jimmy (No address, obviously)


PHANTOM TONES, THE:
Entitled Nameless: CD
Finnish rock'n'roll, dude. –jimmy (Hiljaiset Levyt, PO Box 211, 33201 Tampere, Finland)


PELIGRO:
Welcome to America: CD
A former Dead Kennedy goes metal. The songs are not as bad as some of that metal shit from the '80s/'90s was, but it's weird knowing who this guy is and attaching the music to the man. –jimmy (http://welcome.to/muck)


NO DOUBT:
Return of Saturn: CD
No Doubt has another album out. –Harmonee (Interscope)


NG KINDHEIT:
Self-titled: 7"
Art damage from Chicago, I think. Side one bears a passing resemblance to Pere Ubu at their most disjointed, and side two takes way too long to get to the point. –jimmy (Sound Org, 1843 W. Evergreen #2, Chicago, IL 60622)


NEW MORTY SHOW, THE:
Rigormorty: CD
A group of would-be swingers cover X, Poison, Cole Porter and play their own songs. Yeah, it sucked. –jimmy (Slimstyle, 3400 E. Speedway, Suite 118-272, Tucson, AZ 85716)


MOORAT FINGERS:
I Don't Know: 7"
Brilliant, snotty punk rock from a band that would give the Reatards a run for their money. God, this is a good single –jimmy (No address)


MEN FROM S.P.E.C.T.R.E.:
Burnout for Davie: 7"
Instrumental '60s rock. –jimmy (www.sheeprecords.com)


MARACA FIVE-O:
Headin' South at 110 Per: CD
Kinda mellow surf stuff that would work well in a Tarantino movie. –jimmy (Smooch, PO Box 3951, Boulder CO 80307)


MALEVOLENT CREATION:
Envenomed: CD
I'm not really well versed on all the different sub-genres of "metal," but my guess is that this would fit in with the death metal tribe of groups. The music falls in somewhere between Slayer and Morbid Angel, and there seems to be more of an emphasis on violence instead of the satanic slant of most of the black metal bands. They remind me of Brainstorm and all the old speed metal bands that used to play backyard parties in El Sereno a good decade ago. For what it is, it's pretty solid. –jimmy (Pavement, PO Box 50550, Phoenix, AZ 85076)


LUNGFISH:
Necrophones: CD
I wonder if Ian and Don Z. had trouble staying awake while the band recorded this release. I know I did listening to it, and it's only 4:30 p.m. –jimmy (Dischord, 3819 Beecher Street, NW Washington, DC 20007)
