  • Fizzle Like a Flood – Love b/w Sweeter Dreams (CD, 2001)

    Fizzle Like a Flood – Love b/w Sweeter Dreams (CD, 2001)

    ARTIST/LABEL NOTES: Doug Kabourek, the lone constant behind Fizzle Like A Flood, has been duped once too many. “I can’t even start to count how many times I’ve read some glowing review of a record that paints it as some kind of Heavenly music that almost defies any kind of categorization,” Kabourek says “You know,…

    Mental Anguish – Asshole (cassette, 1989)

    #1816 GAJOOB Review by Bryan Baker, 4/1/1989: The liner notes on this state that, “This one is dedicated to Craig…. for his non support of nothing but himself!!!!! Thanx to Craig no conterfest 88 for me!!!!!! Fuck you asshole!!!!!! HaHaHaHa Asshole!!!!! HaHoHaHo Asshole!!!!” And no, they didn’t sign it with love. Anyway, this tapes reflects…

  • Mental Anguish – Frozen Lake (CD, 2016)

    Mental Anguish – Frozen Lake (CD, 2016)

    GAJOOB Review by Bryan Baker: That Chris Phinney has come out of hiatus is good news to my ears. When you get to be our age, 5 years seems like yesterday sort of, but also forever too.  Frozen Lake is a painting in sound (or a sculpture as the artist tells it) and Mental Anguish…

  • Jim Shelley Interview (GAJOOB #10, 1992)

    Jim Shelley Interview (GAJOOB #10, 1992)

    GAJOOB: How did you get started in home recording?  Jim Shelley: It’s kind of cloudy now when I think back on how I got started in home recording. I know that I loved music since I was a little teeny kid. My parents bought me a cheesy Sears acoustic guitar one Christmas and I’ve been trying…

  • Jim Shelley – This Haunted Life (Cassette 1992)

    Jim Shelley – This Haunted Life (Cassette 1992)

    #361 GAJOOB Review 1992 Add Jim Shelley to your list of highly prolific, consistently proficient DIY artists. Shelley delivers the goods one song after another on this release. It’s got a raw, Dylanesque kind of street poetry feel to it, complete with harmonica. Recorded at home, this one’s got a gritty emotional muscle. And the…

    Evolution Control Committee – The Wheel Of Mashup (Video 2005)

    The Evolution Control Committee debuts The Wheel Of Mashup, live at Bootie SF (DNA Lounge) on 05/12/2006. The Wheel is actually two wheels: one for the music, one for the vocals. Whatever pair results gets mashed up on the spot!

  • The Evolution Control Committee – Buddha Bleach: The Music That’s Karma Clean (1990 Cassette)

    The Evolution Control Committee – Buddha Bleach: The Music That’s Karma Clean (1990 Cassette)

    Cassette #4169 GAJOOB Review A very varied release with a hard to describe style: mock commercials, educational songs for adults, hip-hoppy dance songs, a belly dancing version of a Black Sabbath song… and that’s just the first side! Mark Gunderson is the Committee and is best at collage — music and found texts. I especially…

From the first moments, listeners are enveloped in a muffled blanket of magnesium oxide, where random audio snippets—voices, sounds, mechanical clicks, and clacks of Walkmans—create a collage that feels both familiar and disorientingly novel.gajoobzine.com/albums/x1-the-art-of-k7-vol-2/
