That writer was Young Fresh Fellow Scott McCaughey,who had a column in the Rocket at the time. He seems to write about good stuff(Flaming Groovies,Billy Childish also get reviewed among others) but still plays with REM for some inexplicable reason. He showed his true devotion to C-Town by moving to Portland just.like.everybody.else.
Here's another write-up from that same ish,but not by Scott:
"Paul Caporino (guitars/vox) and Beck Dudley (drums/vox) share a long,sordid story involving New Orleans,self-released cassettes,Boston,and now Chicago,where they perform as MASTERS OF THE OBVIOUS. Their latest,"Places We Used To Go" (Rockville,PO Box 800,Rockville Centre,NY 11571),comes with production from Steve Albini and,well,imagine Badfinger living in Olympia (and forget about the Capenters)."
