Since October 1995, Fast 'n' Bulbous has been a one man operation, a labor of love rather than profit venture. I maintain an editorial policy of publishing mainly positive reviews, with the idea that people should be turned on to the best music. I only review what I feel like because I don't get paid for it.
The only drawback to this site is the drain on my resources. I mostly still buy the CDs of the majority of albums I review. And while I try to mostly review the cream of the crop, I have listened to thousands upon thousands of albums ranging from average to vomit-inducing, so that you don't have to. While you spend your valuable time having a life, furthering your education, raising a family, making a real living, having fun, I take the bullet, sacrificing my time suffering through the pabulum to unearth the gems.

Scorpions at Charter One last night veered between great and horrible. I wouldn’t mind their trio of power ballads early in the set if they would have just gotten on with it and cranked out more of the good songs. … Continue reading
The second big profile on Profound Lore this year, bravo. I was hoping the scope would be larger though and they’d cover and compare more labels like Relapse, Nuclear Blast, Neurot, Rise Above, Tee Pee and Small Stone. That would … Continue reading
A great, condensed sample of Iggy’s wit. The Taming of the Stooge: Iggy Pop Isn’t Ready to Give Up the Carnal Life
French death-prog band’s fifth album is a biggie. Another masterpiece as usual, but I feel they’ll be reaching more people than ever as they’ve finally caught the fickle attention of the lumbering mainstream media. Intellectuals can ponder their well-done environmentalist … Continue reading
REVIEW – THROUGH THE WOODS INTO DEEP WATER BY WIGHT Wight have returned with their follow up album to 2010′s Wight Weedy Wight. The band announced today it’s available for streaming. Instead of waiting for a physical copy to arrive, I … Continue reading
Remember Slant 6? Lunachicks? LiliPUT/Kleenex? Definitely different from what my list would have been, but a cool tribute and reminder of one of the more important doors that were blown open in the music industry by punk. Despite the fact … Continue reading
Remember real magazines? It’s over a decade since proclamations of print publishing being dead were made, and bowed and battered, most are still at it. Decibel is by far the best one I subscribe to. Next month’s issue features Women … Continue reading
Wow it’s been 16 years! Where ya been Neneh? You’d think after all this time she’d have some songs written, but the covers are cool, especially the one of The Stooges’ “Dirt.” Growing up with the legendary Don Cherry as … Continue reading
Norwegian smut rockers Turbonegro are so good that there’s already no less than FIVE (!) tribute bands – Trouser Snake, Ass Cobra, Scandinavian Pleather, all-female Turbonegra, and a lounge & bossa version. Vocalist Hank Von Helvete departed to make bad … Continue reading
Ed the Happy Clown (aka Yummy Fur) was the book that drew me back into comics in college. A roommate had Watchman, which was of course brilliant, and changed comics forever. But it was Ed the Happy Clown that truly … Continue reading
