Fans fearing that the Jellyfish well has run dry can rest assured that the kind folks at Omnivore have their backs. After reissuing the long defunct, cult power pop confectioners' two studio albums on vinyl, along with a concert album (Live at Bogarts) and a two-disc set consisting of Bellybutton and Spilt Milk sans vocals, the label lives up to its promise of releasing music "for the fan with an insatiable appetite for everything good" with the self-explanatory Radio Jellyfish: Live Radio Broadcasts 1993. Recorded during the Spilt Milk tour at the height of their technical prowess, this ten-song set, which includes only one track (a flawless cover of the Move's "I Can Hear the Grass Grow") from the out of print 2002 Jellyfish Box, features songs from both studio albums, as well as a spirited take on Badfinger's "No Matter What." Culled from promotional sessions in Australia and the Netherlands, the banter is relatively sparse, but the performances are predictably stellar (and musically garrulous), with highlights arriving via the pure pop bliss of "Baby's Coming Back," the soulful and broken "Man I Used to Be," and the harmony-laden triple threat of "Joining a Fan Club," "The King Is Half Undressed," and "The Ghost at Number One." As was the case with the two prior Jellyfish curios, Live Radio Broadcasts is geared toward hardcore fans, but it's also ripe for anyone with a pair of ears and a hankering for some insanely catchy, retro-pop songs with hooks to spare. ~ James Christopher Monger
