Come Recline With Black Velvet Flag (1995)
One of the funniest records released this year. Remember the CIRCLE JERKS dressed as lounge entertainers, crooning an insipid Borscht-Belt version of "When the Shit Hits the Fan," in the '83 movie Repo Man? And the punk at the table ...

Red Medicine (1995)

We People Space With Phantoms (1996)
Chicago's Scissor Girls play a defiantly fractured brand of rock that takes punk aesthetics and slants them with the scratchy post-punk of bands like Wire and the Fall, then takes this in such an extreme, non-pop direction that the results ...
