X - More Fun in the New World Click here to see this CD at!

By Aidin Vaziri

Although Exene Cervenka and John Doe should be remembered as the most influential punk songwriting team after the Clash's Joe Strummer and Mick Jones, they remain a cult favorite. Oh well, that hardly diminishes the lasting impact of More Fun in the New World. Released as a follow-up to 1982's earth-shattering Under the Big Black Sun, this CD catches the grimy Los Angeles quartet at the height of its power, lashing out at Reagan's increasingly synthetic and sodden America and turning a blind eye to the emerging new wave scene that would soon overrun their city. Songs like "True Love" and "Hot House" are essentially timeless, reaching back to the very heart of rock & roll's primal roots with appropriately ravenous production by former Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek, while looking forward with their widescreen melodies. If it wasn't for X we would have never had the Go-Go's, the Pixies, Sonic Youth, No Doubt, or the White Stripes. And that would be a sad world, indeed.
