    Coming Out Both Ends

    I'm not sure what it is about me that attracts the dregs of humanity; there are numerous examples I can site -- I spent a year dating a stripper, then my friends try to hook me up with a (half-assed) recovering heroin addict as a girlfriend. And that...

    The Shredder

    The first, and least offensive, is Captain Squeegee and the Soap Suds, which other than earning an honorary doctorate in dumb-band-naming, really need to figure out what the hell they're doing. Is this adult contemporary? Is it Morphine-style horn-ro...

    Fucking Impossible

    Finally, the Impossible Ones are releasing the album that I wrote about what seems ages ago... and the band already has a video finished for the first single, "Bats in the Belfry." See if you can catch any lip- or instrumental-synching, they didn't f...

    Crackers and Tomatoes

    I've got good news for people who like southern flavored rap music: Carolina Cracker and his homeboy from Minnesota, Melk Money, are back in town and scheming imminent appearances at local venues. I wrote about Cracker here (halfway down) back in las...

    Fire Marshall Beck

    I received the following missive the other day from Marshall "Fucking" Beck, from local metal band Rebirth. Beck and my paper -- Michele Laudig in particular -- have had some beef in the past year, mostly because he encouraged his fans to write to Mi...

    The Bled

    Shit's gotten a little vitriolic up in this bitch lately, so I'm going to (temporarily) tell you about something worth listening to... I've been listening to the grand, expansive latest album from Sweet Bleeders, one of multi-instrumentalist and pop ...

    Solo Survivor - One man, no van

    Shane Ocell has the biggest, hardest . . . callus I've ever seen. It's the size of a small marble, sitting on the knuckle of his right middle finger. He cultivated the knot through his unconventional drumming style holding the stick between h...

    Via Vengeance - Dieography (www.myspace.com/shadesofbloood)

    Via Vengeance's songs sound gritty, dense, and calculated. The rhythms are snappy and solid, with seamless, simple timing changes that often lead into even simpler guitar interludes, but show attention to composition nonetheless. Not that Via Vengean...

    Remembering Joe Zawinul - Down them stairs, lose them cares

    It was the eve of the new millennium at Joe and Maxine Zawinul's beautiful place in lower Manhattan. The music of Marvin Gaye filled the home "What's Going On," as I recall. Zawinul had invited me to a small family celebration, and all my other ...

    On Your Markers - Glossy format

    So witty, so inquisitive, so downright loquacious is Elisa Ambrogio that a telephone interview with her threatens to unravel at any given moment, to turn obliviously tangential not unlike the music she's made, until recently. A question about autho...

    Drastic Elastic - Devendra Banhart's latest bends and stretches, but doesn't break his spell

    The best descriptors for Devendra Banhart's latest album, Smokey Rolls Down Thunder Canyon, come in pairs; one at a time doesn't do justice to its heady tensions or its creator's labyrinthine mystique. The record is kinetic yet placid, pensive yet dr...

    Dance Dance Evolution - Phoenix's rave scene pioneers find their groove again

    One of the mantras that emerged from the hippie counterculture movement of the '60s was "never trust anyone over 30." When you're young, idealistic, and wearing rose-colored raver sunglasses to protect your eyes from the early-morning sunrise assault...

    will.i.am - Songs About Girls (Interscope)

    Derivative, repetitive, insipid, insincere, and pandering, Songs About Girls also has the worst insert booklet in recent memory seven pages of will.i.am mugging in a checkered suit. The first song, "Over," a lover's lament featuring a sample from E...

    Hot Hot Heat - Happiness Ltd. (Reprise)

    The epic, soaring sonics on Happiness Ltd. , Hot Hot Heat's latest effort, owe a debt to some tricked-out production that results in a number of satisfying swells. The strongest candidates for airplay are front-loaded for instant gratification, while...

    Aesop Rock

    While putting together his latest verbose yet exhilarating album, None Shall Pass, Aesop Rock moved from New York to San Francisco, got married, quit smoking, and turned 30. So, it's not surprising that the record shows changes in his style; rather t...

    Martin Sexton

    Two things separate real musicians from wanna-bes the willingness to tour without quarter, and the head-down attitude to plow forward, faithful in one's abilities. Martin Sexton qualifies on both counts. He busked for the money to make his first al...

    Los Straitjackets

    Before those hand-holding mop-tops from Liverpool hit these shores, instrumental rock was extremely popular. The charts belonged to The Ventures, Dick Dale, Link Wray (big influence on The Who's Pete Townshend), and even Brits like the Shadows and To...

    The Vibrators

    Like their contemporaries in U.K. Subs, who lived in the same building, the seasoned pub musicians who formed the Vibrators in 1976 brought a blues tradition to the nascent punk scene. But while the scene was highly politicized and angry, the Vibes g...
