terminal boredom reviews roman candles 7"

terminal boredom finally got around to updating their reviews. here's what they said about the romcan 7". or read it HERE.

Roman Candles "Whatever Happened to VBK" 7"
Roman Candles jump from the Termbo Demo//Zone pages with an actual vinyl release, extending a giant middle finger to me in the process. Well done gentlemen. I mean, well done in that you released an actual record and all, even if it is not real good. Two songs of painfully goofy and "playful" pop that owes a debt to Camper Van Beethoven in the worst possible ways. What the Zodiac Killer referencing sleeve has to do with this is beyond my understanding.(RK)

MRR reviews the stowaways issue #1

Maximum Rocknroll #343-DEC-2011
reviewed the stowaways issue number one. pick up a copy.

8.5 x 11 - copied - 9 pgs
First issue of a zine that will hopefully get better with future issues. The show reviews are lengthy, but the writing style is bland and fails to capture the author's excitement. His below-average tour diary manages to make the experience sound more mundane than it probably was, and the interview with a member of the The Henry Clay People, which uses zero line breaks and is therefore irritating to read. The record reviews are surprisingly good and capture the feeling of each release, but it's too little too late. The layout is basically too-dark pictures and large blocks of text thrown onto a black background at a copy shop, and while I'm still glad this wasn't done on a computer, it leaves a lot to be desired.
