Linda Perry, Lisa Germano, Grace Slick - In Flight (1996)

What's Up (4 Non Blondes)
Fill Me Up (Linda Perry)
Linda Perry biography by Vincent Jeffries
Born on April 15, 1965, in Springfield, MA, Linda Perry spent her youth struggling with kidney disease and then addiction before focusing on music. Growing up in an artistic and musical household, the young Perry displayed a good share of musical talent and interest from an early age. During her teenage years, Perry floundered in school and tried unsuccessfully to form several bands in the San Diego area. A drug problem prevented the singer/guitarist from starting off her career at an early age, but after a few close calls and a move to San Fransisco in the late '80s, she cleaned up and began making some real artistic and professional gains. During this period, Perry discovered and refined her powerful singing voice. Part Grace Slick, part Johnnette Napolitano, but unique in her own right and a little quirky, it didn't take long before Perry's solo performances at various Bay Area nightclubs were attracting the attention of scenesters and fellow musicians. One such musician was Christa Hillhouse, who was in quest of a new lead vocalist for her group 4 Non Blondes. Hillhouse asked Perry to join up with her outfit, which also included Shauna Hall and Wanda Day. Perry agreed to give it a try and it wasn't long before 4 Non Blondes were being courted and eventually signed by Interscope Records. The group's debut, Bigger, Better, Faster, More, was released on Interscope in 1992. After a very slow start sales-wise, the David Tickle-produced album began to break in 1993 when a modern rock disc jockey in Las Vegas began spinning "What's Up?" Interscope then began pushing the song, which had by this time developed a life of its own. A video was produced and MTV took an immediate and prolonged shine it, giving the band massive exposure. As "What's Up?" became a huge international hit, 4 Non Blondes seemed to be everywhere. During a period of about two years, Perry and her bandmates appeared on the Airheads and Wayne's World 2 soundtracks, released two more singles and accompanying videos (for "Spaceman" and "Dear Mr. President"), toured the globe, appeared on Carpenters and Led Zeppelin tribute releases, and finally appeared on Roger Daltrey's televised 50th birthday party, which ended up being their final performance. While working on their follow-up to the six-million-unit-selling Bigger, Better, Faster, More, Perry left the group due to personal problems within the band. After departing 4 Non Blondes, Perry began work on some solo material and formed her own label, Rockstar Records, which later signed Stone Fox and 2 Lane Blacktop. Perry also began a producing and session career by joining Stone Fox in the studio and helping out on former Bangle Susanna Hoffs' self-titled solo disc. Perry herself was joined by the likes of Grace Slick, Lisa Germano, and Sheryl Crow producer Bill Bottrell on In Flight, her 1996 solo debut. Darker, and more dynamic than her work with 4 Non Blondes, Perry came into her own as an artist on this exceptional recording. Released on Interscope, In Flight was perhaps too dour or sincere to capitalize on the alt-pop success of 4 Non Blondes and the record was hardly noticed by critics, radio, or fans. After In Flight, Perry moved to Southern California and continued working on production and film projects, as well as running her label. In 1999, she released her second solo effort, the stripped-down, almost bluesy After Hours. A fine vocalist, writer, and musician, Linda Perry has led a serious and occasionally subversive career, punctuated by her individualism and sense of artistic purpose.
Album review by Vincent Jeffries
Linda Perry's music is both subtle and bombastic, sweet and aggressive, and intellectually and sonically challenging. After the singer/songwriter quit her job fronting mega-platinum rock outfit 4 Non Blondes in 1994, Perry spent some time underground and eventually recorded In Flight for Interscope Records. Producer Bill Botrell (Sheryl Crow, Susanna Hoffs) helps Perry on the 1996 release as she digs deep into very personal subject matter that could get overwrought without the softly detailed arrangements and mixes. The queen of '90s ultra-depressive mope rock, Lisa Germano deepens the disc's dour construct with her mournful violin. There are a couple overly personal moments within the In Flight playlist, like the opener "In My Dreams," but Perry leans on her expressive vocals to keep the dangerously sincere material interesting. "Success" borders on the excessively self-analytical, but Botrell's juicy production and a crushing hook elevate the track beyond its weepy predisposition. Other standouts include "Life in a bottle," "In Flight," and the Grace Slick duet "Knock Me Out" that features the legendary Starship vocalist in extremely rare form. A fondness for fellow '90s female mood rockers Germano and PJ Harvey will aid listeners in appreciating the sallow cast of In Flight. But with just a little patience, any fan can enjoy the tenderness that coats Perry's introspective material.

Punky Reggae Party!!! Specials - 1996 - Pressure Drop EP

:) Wikipedia
Pressure drop is a term used to describe the change in pressure across a system. For example, in a typical garden hose the pressure in the hose is 40 psi and at sea level the atmospheric pressure is about 15 psi. Therefore, the pressure drop across the nozzle is 25 psi.
"Pressure Drop" is also the name of a song by Toots & the Maytals and an early album by Robert Palmer (featuring his cover version of the song). Later this song was redone by The Clash, and can be found on their compilation album Super Black Market Clash
"Pressure Drop" is also the name of a computer peripheral company designing and building products such as USB hubs and iPod docks.
(Pressure Drop by) Toots and the Maytals, originally called simply The Maytals, are considered legends of ska and reggae music.[citation needed] Their sound is a unique, original combination of gospel, ska, soul, reggae and rock. Frederick "Toots" Hibbert, the leader of the group, was born in May Pen in the Parish of Clarendon, Jamaica. He was the youngest of seven children. He grew up singing gospel music in a church choir, but moved to Kingston in 1961 at the tender age of sixteen.
In Kingston, Hibbert met Henry "Raleigh" Gordon and Nathaniel "Jerry" McCarthy, forming a group whose early recordings were attributed to "The Flames" and, possibly, "The Vikings". Having renamed the group the Maytals, the vocal trio recorded their first album, "Never Grow Old - presenting the Maytals", for producer Clement "Coxsone" Dodd at Studio One in 1962-63. With musical backing from Dodd's house band, the legendary Skatalites, the Maytals' close-harmony gospel singing ensured instant success for the 1964 release, overshadowing Dodd's other up-and-coming gospel trio, The Wailers. The original album augmented by studio out-takes from the Studio One sessions was re-released by Heartbeat/Rounder Records in 1997, and is essential listening for Maytals and Skatalites fans.
After staying at Studio One for about two years, the group moved on to do sessions for Prince Buster (released in 1974) before recording their second album produced by Byron Lee in 1965 . However, the band's musical career was rudely interrupted in late 1966 when Hibbert was arrested and imprisoned on drugs possession charges.
Following Hibbert's release from jail towards the end of 1967, the band officially changed their name to Toots and the Maytals and began working with Chinese-Jamaican producer Leslie Kong, a collaboration which produced three classic albums and a string of hits throughout the late sixties and early seventies - "Do the Reggay", a 1968 single widely credited with coining the word reggae, "Pressure Drop", "54-46 was my number" and "Monkey Man", the group's first international hit in 1970 . The group was featured in one of reggae's greatest breakthrough events - The Harder They Come, the 1972 film and soundtrack starring Jimmy Cliff, named as one of Vanity Fair's Top 10 Best Soundtracks of all time.
Following Kong's death in 1971, the group continued to record with Kong's former sound engineer, Warwick Lyn; produced by Lyn and Chris Blackwell of Island Records, the group released three best-selling albums, and enjoyed international hits with Funky Kingston in 1973 and Reggae Got Soul in 1976.
Toots and the Maytals' compositions would be given a second airing in 1978-80 during the reggae-punk and ska revival period in the UK, when The Specials included "Monkey Man" on their 1979 debut album and The Clash produced their version of "Pressure Drop". Having toured throughout the world for many years, Toots and the Maytals disbanded in the early 1980s, but reformed in the early 90s to continue touring and recording successfully. Sublime recorded cover versions of some Maytals songs in the 1990s as well.
The band recently won the 2005 Grammy award for best reggae album True Love, an album consisting of re-recorded versions of their classics alongside popular and legendary musicians such as Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson, Eric Clapton, and Keith Richards, as well as popular artists today such as No Doubt, Ben Harper, The Roots, and Shaggy.
In 2006, they recorded a reggae/ska version of Radiohead's Let Down for the tribute album, Radiodread, by the Easy Star All-Stars. The album is a complete song for song makeover of the English rock band's album OK Computer into reggae, dub and ska. Let Down has been frequently cited by reviewers as one of the successes of the album.
According to the official Toots MySpace, the band are recording a new album. Blog entries on the Myspace page [2] report that Toots has been working on a follow up to the 2004 album True Love. The album, apparently originally due for 2006 release, was still being worked on as of December 2006.

The Geraldine Fibbers - 1995 - Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home

From Eiliv Konglevoll 17 Sep 2003 letter to (Lisa Germano mailing list):
What is good with Lisa's music is that there is not much to campare with.But just found one artist or group with something common, which you mightlike. It have been standing just before her records, not played for a longtime. Geraldine Fibbers, Lost somewhere between the earth and my home. Hope itis still possible to find, this a knockout, I just found out. Have to searchvery hard to find a better record the last ten years. Lots of crazy violinsand insane lyrics, rather "violent" with wry humour. And I have never heardsomeone getting away with combining sentimental folk with Velvet white-lightnoise, in one song. It works, it works. "Everything I say is a stupid lie, Iwon't tell the truth even when I die, I'll pick myself to pieces 'til the endof time, then I'll glue them back together in a stupid rhyme." A group, butCarla Bozulich is the beginning and the end. Now I just got to find out abouther solo records! The group had two other records, also very good, but thefirst is a classic. Most people would back off, it is bizarre and extreme, butLisa fans are not easily scared.

The Geraldine Fibbers
Styles: Neo-Traditional Folk, Alternative Pop/Rock, Grunge, Indie Rock, Alternative Country-Rock
Biography by Jason Ankeny
The Geraldine Fibbers were the bluesy, country-tinged vehicle of singer/songwriter Carla Bozulich, a longtime veteran of the Southern California post-punk scene who previously tenured in Ethyl Meatplow and Neon Vein. After the former's 1993 breakup, Bozulich formed the Fibbers with guitarist Daniel Keenan, bassist William Tutton, violinist Jessy Greene, and drummer Kevin Fitzgerald, debuting the following year on the Sympathy for the Record Industry label with the EP Get Thee Gone. After signing to Virgin, the group issued 1995's acclaimed Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home; Butch, a more rock-oriented effort recorded with new guitarist Nels Cline, followed in 1997.
Review by Michael Gallucci
Carla Bozulich's distorted folk tales for the desolate got their start on this debut album from her punky alterna-country performance outfit the Geraldine Fibbers, and what an introduction it is. Defying labels across the board, and turning old-style ancestral narratives into brutal and harrowing portraits of life on the edge of nowhere, the Fibbers wrap each of Lost Somewhere Between the Earth and My Home's 12 songs into a ball of fury and toss it against the wall of tradition, just to see what happens. The results, wickedly conveyed through Bozulich's often androgynous and twangy tones, are among the most original, if not always successful, conceived in the cookie-cutter '90s. Chaotic noise breakdowns give way to melodic singalongs, songs twist and turn through several side paths before reaching their destination, and everything sounds as if total annihilation is imminent. Scary, thoughtful and highly inventive (plus a bit one-noted), Lost is the sound of country gone to hell.

Muse -2003 - Absolution

Review by Tim DiGravina
Though some may still consider them Radiohead mimics, obviously Muse continues to strike a nerve with their alternative hard rock audience, here releasing their third album of heavy guitars, haunted harmonics, and paranoid musings in Absolution. Frontman Matt Bellamy and company stick to the same disturbed, and sometimes disturbing, formula that's worked in the past: the emotional intensity and style of Radiohead, a rock thunder descended from Black Sabbath, and the baroque drama of Queen. Longtime producer John Leckie sits this one out, and in steps indie ьber-engineer Rich Costey. With Costey manning the desk, the music feels more polished and slick, but less epic and raw. Longtime fans won't miss a beat though, because Bellamy delivers the same Thom Yorke vocal impersonation for which he's known, and continues the same anthemic posturing he's lifted from Freddie Mercury. With song titles and subject matter fueled by fear of the apocalypse and worries about infidelities and random murders, the subject matter is as gloriously pretentious and lovably unlovable as ever. Newcomers to the band should expect killer guitars reminiscent of jackhammers and chainsaws, bloodcurdling choruses, and of course, tender passages of falsetto. A recurring motif of racing samplers suggests nothing less than a rock opera version of the score to Koyaanisqatsi, and then there are the occasional spooky moments where funky rhythms mingle with heavy metal guitars, suggesting a progressive Italian zombie flick soundtrack. There's little point in selecting highlights, because other than some slow moments that feel tacked on, there's not much variation in theme or mood. Many listeners will probably prefer to tackle the album in small doses, and only the most headstrong won't require a breather. Muse continues to make unrelenting hardcore art rock; Absolution is a tad cheesy, a bit too grandiose in its ambitions, bursting at the seams with too many ideas, and thus exactly what any Muse fan craves.

The Men They Couldn't Hang (TMTCH) are a British rock band whose mixture of folk and punk is not dissimilar to that of The Pogues (in fact founder member Shanne Bradley was an original female punk artist and founder of Shane MacGowan's first band, The Nipple Erectors).
The original group consisted of Stefan Cush (Vocals, Guitar), Paul Simmonds (Guitar, Bouzouki, Mandolin, Keyboards), Philip (Swill) Odgers (Vocals, Guitar, Tin Whistle, Melodica), Jon Odgers (Drums, Percussion) and Shanne Bradley (Bass).
[edit] (1984-1991) Controversy and success
Their first single, "The Green Fields of France", was released in 1984. Written by Eric Bogle (of "And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" fame), the song's protagonist imagined having a conversation with one of the fallen soldiers of World War I whilst sitting by his graveside. It received considerable airplay on the John Peel show on BBC Radio 1 and finished at No.3 in Peel's Festive 50 for that year. It became a big hit on the UK Indie charts.
The following year they were signed by Elvis Costello to his Demon label, and released their debut album, "The Night of a Thousand Candles", and its accompanying single "Ironmasters", a self-penned number by main songwriter Simmonds, linking the Industrial Revolution to the present-day treatment of the working class. The original final line of the song - "and oh, that iron bastard, she still gets her way" (a reference to the then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher) had to be removed for the single version to ensure radio airplay. They were again named in Peel's yearly Festive 50, this time at No.11. They followed this up with a new single not taken from the album, Greenback Dollar, a cover of the song written by Hoyt Axton and made famous by The Kingston Trio. The single was produced by Nick Lowe.
In 1985 the band signed for MCA records and released "How Green Is The Valley". The record included "Ghosts Of Cable Street", a political number concerning The Battle of Cable Street in 1936 and "Shirt Of Blue", which regarded the miners' strike of 1984-5. At the end of promotion for the album Shanne Bradley left to create music with Wreckless Eric and The Chicken Family, she was replaced on bass by Ricky McGuire (ex UK Subs).
In 1987 the band switched to Magnet Records and the new record released was, what many fans consider their best "Waiting For Bonaparte". Once again the strongest songs were stories of historical origin. "The Colours" told of an English mutineer sailor during the Napoleonic War and "The Crest" a stretcher bearer during World War II. Sadly whilst "The Colours" was at no.61 in the British top 75 it was blacklisted by BBC Radio 1 due to the line "You've Come Here To Watch Me Hang", which echoed the events happening in South African townships at the time. However it didn't stop the album propelling the group to stardom in Europe.
In 1988 the band were on the move again and signed for new label Silvertone (who later put out The Stone Roses debut release). The band were joined by Nick Muir (ex Fire Next Time) at this time on piano organ and accordian, who remained with the band during their time at Silvertone. Muir later found success as an electronic music producer and half of the duo Bedrock.
The band recorded two albums for Silvertone, the first being "Silvertown". Highlights of "Silvertown" included "Rain, Steam and Speed", "A Place In The Sun" and "A Map Of Morocco". They followed this up in 1990 with "The Domino Club", which had a more conventional rock sound dispensing with much of the folk element. "
In August 1990 the band supported David Bowie in his concerts at the Milton Keynes Bowl, as part of his Sound and Vision World Tour.
