Ross Johnson - Make It Stop! The Most Of cd (Goner)


Career-retrospective from possibly the ultimate anti-careerist! Legendary nutsoid drummer for Tav Falco's Panther Burns, heard ranting on Alex Chilton's Like Flies On Sherbert... yeah that's him on Baron Of Love Pt 2! Includes his Sugar Ditch recordings, Adolescent Music Fantasy stuff with Jeff Evans, tracks with REM's Peter Buck in Our Favorite Band (dig "My Slobbering Decline" and "Rockabilly Monkey-Faced Girl"), tracks with the Young Seniors, Ron Franklin, and more more more!

Superb booklet as well, with essays from Ross, It Came From Memphis' Robert Gordon, John Floyd, and Andria Lisle.

Pitchfork Review: (Scored 8.3) http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/11093-make-it-stop-the-most-of-ross-johnson/

Thank God he's not a real musician. A "real musician" wouldn't be able to turn his middle-class autobiography and mental and moral ailments (both real and imagined) into Southern monologues that are simultaneously hilarious, uncomfortable, and tragic.

Malibu Mike Murphy has a huge blog post about Ross as well:

BIG NEWS: Peter Buck has covered "My Slobbering Decline" on his latest album "I Am Back To Blow Your Mind Once Again"! Believe it or not!
