    Silly Rabbit Dust (Orphan Boy) The experimental rockers in Silly Rabbit make it one of the most danceable groups to emerge from Seattle's postgrunge wasteland. This eight-piece urban groove machine consists of guitars, sequencers, an unst...

    Raga Muffins

    So I'm in Eastside Records a few days back looking for old Devo albums (don't ask why), and I spot this stack of small, black handbills someone has placed at the bottom of the racks amid a smattering of other fliers for rock shows and raves. The bill...

    American Son - Uncle Tupelo passed away, butheartland rocker JayFarrar has plugged backin with Son Volt

    Jay Farrar isn't much of a talker. Son Volt's 29-year-old singer/songwriter comes across in conversation like a man in desperate need of a nap. His voice is low and lazy, his thick, Midwestern drawl stretching what few words he utters into slow, grog...

    Then You Die, She Dies, Everybody Dies

    Come on, now, let's be honest: Going to see the souped-up rerelease of Heavy Metal is a bad move, unless a) you're about five bong hits beyond stoned silly; b) you have an insatiable taste for early '80s cheese metal (hey, dude, Sammy Hagar rocks!); ...

    Tom Marches On - It's not unusual to find we're still in love with him, woah woah woah woah, woah woah woah woah woah woah

    Here's a mentally stimulating game--think of any song written in the last 45 years, then imagine Tom Jones singing it. No matter what your level of creativity, it should be tough to picture Jones botching a tune--any tune. In the last 30-plus ye...

    Fallen Angels - For the Valley's premier power-pop band, retro is all a state of mind

    Groupies are a sore subject in the Phantom Surfers' camp. "The only people who want to meet us are overweight record collectors looking for matrix numbers," says bassist Michael Lucas, sighing. "The women who attend our shows have a few drinks an...

    Getting Down

    White Zombie bassist Sean Yseult speaks in the whiskey-and-cigarettes drawl of a heavy-metal road warrior, a title she's earned after nearly four years of constant touring in support of her band's 1992 major-label debut, La Sexorcisto, and last year'...
