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.

April showers of hellfire did indeed bring May flowers of evil. There has been a ton of great new music this spring to document end times, more than I can cover in one place beyond the list. The Woodentops (80s … Continue reading
More of a late summer edition, but it didn’t seem right evoking summer after the autumn equinox. While the release schedule in the summer slows down somewhat, I fall into a false sense of complacency when really there is a … Continue reading
Remember when you first heard Big Star, The Modern Lovers, Funkadelic, Can, Neu! , Leaf Hound and/or Amon Duul II and thought, “why didn’t I know about these years/decades ago”? Just because the 70s ended over 33 years ago doesn’t … Continue reading
The first major releases of 1982 were the challenging, sophisticated soundscapes of XTC’s English Settlement and The Fall’s similarly lengthy, gnarly Hex Enduction Hour. Orange Juice seemed on the surface much lighter fare, but the hidden depths of their music … Continue reading
