ALTROK Ordinals 38
Matthew Ryan - Concussion (Waxy Silver)
From Chester PA (outside Philly). This is his 3rd album. Sober, ten-song
reflection on "common people and common tragedies." Plus it's got "Somebody Got Murdered", an old Clash song.
Stan Ridgway - Holiday In Dirt: Rare & Unreleased (New West)
Jeff says: One of the most unique singer/songwriters in American indie music, with an
unforgettable adenoidal vocal delivery and a lyrical obsession with the
themes of pulp crime novels and film noir. From his early days with quirky
Los Angeles new wavers Wall of Voodoo to his even more intriguing solo
career, he has created an impressive body of work. This album is made up of
tracks that were originally left off of previous solo albums, tracks that
were for soundtracks, and the like.
