    The Toys

    Long before hitmakers like Kelis sampled Mozart and Mike Skinner borrowed from Bartok, a '60s girl group called The Toys layered exquisite teen harmonies over Bach finger exercises and launched a pop-music revolution. Led by Barbara Harris, The Toys ...

    New Model Army frontman Justin Sullivan talks Neil Young and Irish humor

    If you listen to frontman/bandleader Justin Sullivan tell it, it's a surprise that New Model Army is still around at all. Formed in 1980 with the intention of playing just two pub gigs in the band's hometown of Bradford, England, NMA is still heralde...

    Tempe Music Festival celebrates local bands while welcoming hometown heroes Gin Blossoms and The Meat Puppets

    Now in its sixth year, the Tempe Music Festival brings an annual spotlight to town. As always, the headliners are national acts, meant to draw in a crowd of people who probably have little interest in local music and are far more likely to see a show...

    Times New Viking - Rip It Off (Matador)

    Times New Viking takes a cue from fellow Ohioans Guided by Voices, recording its fuzzy indie rock under a thick gauze of guitar noise. There's little to no production on the feedback-soaked Rip It Off, which includes zero bottom end to balance out th...

    Punk Bunny
