The latest come in free muso mag "Making Music". "Bruce Springsteen has lost the plot. I find it insulting that he still feels qualified to preach working class issues while living in an insular and enormously privileged world," fumed the review.

There was "Nude Nudes" from Honey Tongue ("A stark, quirky and occasionally enchanting affair," we reckoned). Then there was "Bricks Are Heavy" from all girl band L7. "With this album L7 have captured the rawness of their live appearances. Quite an achievement," was our verdict. Start > Beat Box 540 Fanzine 545 Fanzine Section 6 Prize Line Buzz

Reviewing "Break Like The Wind", the new album from joke heavy metal band Spinal Tap, the NME wrote: "S**T SANDWICH. But without the bread." (You'll only understand this if you've seen "Spinal Tap" the movie). It reminds us of Charles Sharr-Murray's legendary review of the debut album from Yes which read: "Yes? Probably." Well, it made us laugh. continues > Beat Box 540 Fanzine 545 Fanzine Section 6 Prize Line Buzz

"Someone, probably French, once said that the definition of art was 'going too far'. He must have met Levitation in a previous incarnation," commenced the review. MM reckoned the band had matched "the expansive sonic ambitions of My Bloody Valentine, while not losing themselves or dissolving into mumbling, dead souls." more follows > Beat Box 540 Fanzine 545 Fanzine Section 6 Prize Line Buzz
