    THIS COMPILATION WAS put together in 1996 to raise money for Lounge Ax, the venerable Chicago club whose livelihood was threatened by some yuppie neighbors who were whining about the noise coming from the club as well as people parking in the alley. Happily, the danger has passed, and Lounge Ax and this great disc live on. This is perhaps the best-sequenced album I've ever heard -- the kind of quality flow I strive for with my mix tapes. It kicks off with the naked aggression of Jesus Lizard, Shellac and Sebadoh, then slows down with some edgy June of 44, a bizarre vibes-and-fuzzbox Coctails instrumental and pulsing Guided by Voices lo-fi. Then the album moves on to an Archers of Loaf surf instrumental, gets derailed temporarily with two out-of-place tracks (the Bad Livers, and Yo La Tengo doing some unlistenable no-wave noise), but recovers nicely with the Mekons relating a Lounge Ax folk tale. Then, after Superchunk and Seam weigh in with typically sterling efforts, things mellow out dramatically with the post-rock quietude of Tortoise and the Rachel's. It is odd, however, that former Ax mainstays Uncle Tupelo are nowhere to be found, given how many times they played there over the years, as well as the fact that Jeff Tweedy is married to one of the club's owners. But that's just quibbling -- the music here is mostly wonderful. And you absolutely must see the liner art, which includes priceless snapshots of indie rock luminaries (Lou Barlow, Mac McCaughan, Jon Langford, etc.) taken in Lounge Ax's photo booth.
