The Jay Arthur Column

Article from Making Music, October 1987

"... the pseudo-classical Bach-rock meld — both an effective hit making formula and a great goofy self parody for the group — is back in full flower."
— Bruce Malamut reviewing Queen in US Guitar World.

"If DJs are the true musical artists of the eighties, as some of us rashly claim from time to time, then the jazz revival is surely one of the triumphs of the theory.."
— David Toop in The Face.

"Totally, TOTALLY, intense doom death."
— Dave Constable reviewing Candlemass in Metal Hammer.

"Half girl, half budgerigar..."
— Mat Snow enjoying Victoria Williams' PL.

"SPEED! How To Get It, How To Use It"
— cover 'lines', US Guitar World.

"... That carousel psychosis bashed out by organ players in fake ska bands."
— Michele Kirsch reviewing Squeeze in the NME.

"... the bass lines, a clean pneumatic carpet."
— Richard Cook on Michael Jackson's BAD, Sounds.

"Vocal pot-holes in deserts with dickensian verve.."
— Barbara Ellen on The Fields Of Nephilim at Reading, NME.

"... an interview with Paul Morrissey, singer from The Smiths..."
— The Observer.

"... May mastering a warm and cozy tube-amp-sounding ax, trading tracks with a nutty surf sound and bell-toned Claptonian mui-lyrical solo..."
— Bruce Malamut again. Thanks to Cameron Mellor.
