Don Campau Music Reviews

Paralyzed by the Very Thought

paralyzed_by_the_very_thought (2K)

Oh, my ear, man. Like some trip, on the marmalade skies. A beaut, and America's answer to Andy Xport, sounds like. "Another Stupid Video" castrates the posseurs of pop with searing guitar and words; Two tear-extractors "Legend of the Silent Scream" and the Wagnerian instro "Blissando" and the Tijuana "Sunset Over Milpitas" dominate side 1. The title track, on side 2, is one of the great rock trax this side of 1890. Murder on the air with "Crowning Jewel" and more guitar mind-blowing. Hip city.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, Vol. 5, No. 3, Spring/Summer 1988

Pen Pals

Another classic from Don, with a little help from his friends, who supply the music. Don wrote the lyrics and does the singing on all trax, of which, "I Never Panicked" is the pick.

- Paul Rance, Peace & Freedom, Vol. 5, No. 4, Autumn/Winter 1988
