MULER

I first heard Muler during the summer of 1996. Their On the Rug/Slowwpoke seven inch was lying in a pile of music yet to be listened to and I decided to check it out. "A poppy Archers of Loaf?" was my first thought; "from Rochester, NY??" was my second. That seven inch brought me endless thrills and joys and let me practice giving the new DJs at WRUV-FM a shock as I would sing along in the studio and jump up and down, nearly hitting my head on the ceiling every time. It ranks up there on my list of all-time great rock seven inches. Yes, it's that good.

ACTION SLACKS

A couple months ago I went to see The Lapse and luckily arrived early enough to see the hilariously-named Actionslacks. I didn't know anything about them, but I became an instant fan. Singer Tim Scanlin's no-frills vocals and strikingly intelligent lyrics made them an instant new fame.

I talked to Tim after the show and he mentioned that he used to do a zine called SnackCake!, which I had loved. He graciously gave me a copy of their most recent record, The Scene's Out of Sight. It's an really thoughtful record and I admire their lack of fear in incorporating pop sounds into their rock songs. They're not re-inventing the wheelthey're just polishing it a bit.
