Yeah, I know you're all sick of
hearing about Seattle. But as long as
those flannel-clad bands keep churn-
ing out such killer music, you'll
have to hear about it for a long time
to come. This nearly flawless compi-
lation shows that the rainy city is
still home to an immense (and di-
verse) wealth of excellent bands.
From Pearl Jam's long-haired earth
guru soul, to Screaming Trees'
crunch and munch pop, the "Sin-
gles" soundtrack is, well, brilliant.
"Singles" rather succinctly doc-
uments what has become known as
the era of grunge. There's Mud-
honey's sloppy, punk-minded trash
("Overblown") in contrast to a sur-
prisingly gorgeous, sad-eyed ballad
from Soundgarden's Chris Cornell
Mother Love Bone's "Chloe
Dancer/Crown Of Thorns" is a dra-
matic art rock epic that takes side
two of "Ritual De Lo Habitual" a
step further. The faboo Pearl Jam.
kick in two songs here, ("Breath"
and "State Of Love And Trust")
proving that the life-changing "Ten"
was hardly a fluke.
The Lovemongers (Ann & Nancy
Wilson of Heart) picture-perfect
rendition of Led Zeppelin's "Battle
Of Evermore," along with Jimi
Hendrix' "May This Be Love,"(both
from Seattle, don't cha know) give
the disc a sense of the city's musical
"Singles" isn't all Seattle; Paul
Westerberg drops a couple of cool
tunes (most notably the rocking
"Waiting For Somebody"), and the
Smashing Pumpkins wrap it up per-
fectly with their Peter Pan feedback
dynamics on "Drown."

Swing Out Sister
Get In Touch With Yourself
One of the few survivors of the
late '80s class of British nightclub
jazzpop, Swing Out Sister dazzle on
their third release. Chock full of
funky, seductive, finger poppin'
grooves, "Get In Touch With
Yourself' is smooth with a capital
Easily the slinkiest thing this duo
has ever whipped up, "Get In
Touch" invokes mid-'70s soul,
awash in a dense mix of wah-wah
guitars, deep basslines, and lush
string stylings worthy of Barry
White's Love Unlimited Orchestra.
Vocalist Corinne Drewery's deli-
cious voice caresses like French silk
on standout tracks like the sexy
"Don't Say A Word," and the cool
ray cabaret croon of "Incomplete
The perfect James Bond sound-
track for mysterious night time ad-
ventures. Stay cool, look sharp.
All Over The World
For those of you that are all
flanneled out, and would rather lis-
ten to a blender on high speed full of
your Mom's best silverware than
endure more rave music, fear not.
The Wail-ing Souls have come to the
rescue with a disc of sinuous, ear
friendly reggae to cure what ails ya.
"All Over The World" juxtaposes
a grooving, bass-heavy bottom with
infectious melodies to create a beat
crazy good time. Standout cuts like
"You Ain't Leaving" and "Get Real"
cruise along on dancehall-tinged
rhythms, complete with rapid-fire
toasting courtesy of guest rappers
Pappa Juggy and U Roy.
And to top it off, Brand New
Heavies vocalist N' ea Davenport
and Shakespeare's number one Sis-
ter Marcella Detroit add their lus-
cious voices to the festivities. Irie!

Finch explains, "We did a lot of
benefits in Los Angeles ... And we
really wanted to a pro-choice benefit
because we really felt that was one
thing that was really slipping away
"We contacted all these organiza-
tions and no one was set-up to do
shows, so we encouraged the Fund
for a Feminist Majority to fund us
and in return, we'd put on benefit
shows to fund them to start a
fundraising branch that would just
do primarily shows.
"We put on our first show with
Nirvana last year, then we did a
show with Fugazi ... (After getting
other rock people in other cities in-
volved), we just turned it over to a
gal at the Fund and she's been kick-
Though L7's late summer tour
with the Beastie Boys was hardly a
Lollapalooza-type "Let's raise the
consciousness of those in atten-
dance" kind of experience, it did in-
troduce the band to a new audience.
"We had a lot of fans at those
shows ... but there were a lot of
people who would say, 'This is my
first time seeing you, you guys are
really awesome.' But at the same
time, there were a lot of kids who
were being annoying. But we have
the microphones. A simple 'Shut the
fuck up' shuts them up."
As Finch sums it, "We're not
Bon Jovi." Not by a mile.
