yoooooo folks outthere!! MR.MOUSE is at 
it again: the reviewing!                
what have i got for you? well, let us   
-THE GEE  (musician without group)      
-RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS                  
is that promising or what?              
righto folks, before i go off remember  
to spread the READ YOU ALL!-note!!!     
ok. let me begin:                       
handle : THE GEE                        
name   : xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx            
age    : 18                             
group  : none, but wants one.           
sex    : yes, er.. male.                
this fellow comes from the netherlands  
and is composing for half a year now.   
he started when i gave him voicetracker.
now he would like his music reviewed.   
(i pushed him a bit)                    
anyway, let's talk about his music.     
it is build on rhythm and bass and it's 
nice. he says he finds it difficult to  
get a solo in(it sure ain't easy) so he 
get's the main background music first.  
i've heard a few songs with a solo and  
although they contain some false notes  
here and then, the melody is clear.     
he is somewhat inspired by REYN OUWEHAND
and by the music he likes very much     
namely: techno, house etc.              
you sometimes hear these styles in his  
zax. he gave me some 15 tunes to check  
out and i must say that some of them    
are nice to listen to.                  
that means he is good for music for     
intro's, but possibly for longplay too. 
the rhythm is well coordinated, no      
rhythmetic faults, only that sometimes  
because he puts bass and drums on one   
track the beat is gone.                 
that is a shame. it's always difficult  
to preserve the beat in a song.         
i think JEROEN TEL is good at that.     
but were are not talking about jt but   
about THE GEE here.                     
some songs are build on one basspattern,
but most of them have many variations.  
this is good.                           
what about the solo? well, i said that  
the gee has false notes in his music    
here and then, but he'll learn. i mean, 
it is quite possible that me myself     
make false music! there are a lot of    
musicians around that make false music  
and still people love their music!      
strange isn't it? but nobody seems to   
he sometimes rips sounds from other     
musicians, but is programming sounds    
himself, too.                           
so this is about it, i should give him  
some grades now. but first: CONTACT HIM!
THE GEE        percent

comment: this dude would like a group.  
         so people: let's do it.        
his address is:                         
the netherlands                         
on to the next review: normal music.    
group    : RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS        
title    : BLOOD SUGAR SEX MAGIK        
label    : warner bros. records         
released : early 1992                   
yes ladies and gentlemen, that new one  
of the red hot chili peppers is out some
time and i'll inform you about it.      
the album contains 17 tracks and has    
78 minutes of music.                    
the complete type of music could by     
discribed as FUNK. some people might say
that funk is not so hard, but this is   
a mixture between funk and jazz, with   
some rock songs.                        
let's take the song: BREAKING THE GIRL. 
this is a somewhat SYMPHONIC lovesong.  
symphonic is something completely else  
than funk, but they can do it.          
i'm not sayin' they are symphonic in the
style of PINK FLOYD for instance, but in
their own way. if you like funk you     
should check out the songs IF YOU HAVE  
it are heavy funky songs with text that 
them peppers always write: about women, 
love, sex, sex, and women...            
but they've got feeling too as you can  
hear in the song: FUNKY MONKS, showing  
love in it's true reality.              
a friend of mine, the solo-guitarist    
of the band in which i play, told me he 
get's goosebumps all over, when he hears
the guitarsolo in I COULD HAVE LIED.    
remarkable is the fact that the songs   
(when you listen to the cd) are put to- 
gether very closely; when one song has  
just finished, the other one plays.     
i must say that these guys are magik    
indeed. it's incredible what they can   
do. of course is my opinion not your    
opinion, so that means that you'll have 
to check it out for yourself.           
if you look at the members of this band 
you might say: jezus, some punks these  
guyz are!! you're right when you say    
that they've got a lot of tatoes, long  
hair and dress weird, but that's just   
how they are! the guitarist of the band 
lives in a very large village in a very 
RICH neighbourhood, he's got his own    
pool, lives in a cool summer-sea-swim   
area and loves to fuck... bringing lots 
f girls. and inviting his pals over...  
strange indeed. but hey, isn't that what
we all would wish? just to party all    
day, lying in the water, coctails at the
ready, drink lots of other booze too and
screw around? well, it may be vulgair or
perverse to some of you, but that's just
the way humans are! but he doesn't have 
time to do all those things, because    
he's got to compose! to be on tour!     
to record! so his life is almost        
complete... he just needs that one true 
do you think i am talking a lot of crap?
ok,ok. but it is true!                  
back to the review. they got the title  
of their album from the song BLOOD SUGAR
SEX MAGIK. nice song indeed.            
if you like good basslines, you get to  
hear a whole wide variety of basslines  
in this album, very heavy basslines!    
this is just one of those albums that   
should please almost everybody.         
even rappers.                           
so, go out and buy it NOW!              
by the way, ACTIVE of PROXYON told me he
totally agreed with my review of his    
music. i'm glad. i've heard a recently  
composed zax from him and yes he's      
getting better!! (issue 2, addybook 7)  
this chapter will NOT be transferred    
into a feedback chapter, ok!!           
"now i'm not losing my mind, at least i 
 don't think i'm losing my mind; last   
 night baby, woohhh..."                 
jimi hendrix, live at monterey, england 
weeeelll, guyz and gals, i'll quit my   
piece now and i hope you will send me   
your music!! (SIDCHIPSCRATCHERS next    
time! and possibly CYBERDYNE of         
TRINOMIC too! and what about THE CURE?) 
before i go: yo to all the people who   
             know me...                 
send your music, concertdates and any   
utility to:

and now some reviews...                 
music video review:                     
PRIMAL SCREAM with                      
PRIMAL SCREAMADELICA                    
following the deserved success of their 
debut aLbum SCREAMADELICA, this is a    
visual feast to go with primal scream's 
potent 60s eclectism.                   
the songs are linked by documentary     
footage featuring way-out colours and   
other psychedelia to go with tracks     
including the superb COME TOGETHER plus 
INNER FLIGHT (a track not featured on   
the original album).                    
former JESUS & MARY CHAIN bassman       
douglas hart directed this 45 minutes of
PEARL JAM - TEN                         
now, this is a good one - an album that 
anybody at all taken by rock should have
in their collection.                    
the mood and style of the songs swings  
from hard metal, through indie to       
psychedelia: it's best tagged as " the  
thinking person's heavy metal."         
pearl jam come from seattle home as     
soundgarden, nirvana et al, and as the  
success of their single alive, proved   
they're just as popular as any other    
member of the grunge gang.              
the strong vocals of eddie are always   
supported, never drowned, by the music. 
and that's one hell of a point in pj's  
favour - they're musical.               
whether you prefer the likes of the slow
, almost melancholy, black or fast 'n'  
heavy deep, you can't help but          
appreciate the entire album's worth.    
of course, pj miss the mark at times,   
like wandering off in guitar solos when 
everything was fine without them, but   
they more than make up for this with    
what is a cracking album.               
okay this was it for this time.         
as i'm in a hurry i can't tell you more 
except for my addy where you can send   
your stuff for this chapter to.
