It was a very good year

1996 lived up to its predecessor while presaging great things to come

Thank God I'm Livin' in the USA, Pump'N Ethyl; Dragon Street Records: Turner Scott Van Blarcum's sardonic wit and the band's mean hardcore make this album as much fun as a drunken romp through Tokyo with Godzilla.

Nocturne (demo tape): With a sound dark and hypnotizing, this black-clad quintet has enough talent to shed its gothic label and move to another level.

REO Speedealer, REO Speedealer; Spanish Fly Records: Texas Chainsaw Massacre should have had a soundtrack like this.

Transona Five, (demo tape): Kudos to this young band for their relentless pursuit of the perfect melody.

Beheaded, Bedhead; Trance Sydnicate: Warm, sensitive, and elusive, these after-hours vignettes counterbalance the ugliness that passes for alternative.
