    Isn't "Hella" Kind of a Berkeley Word From '89?

    This is a bit of either a spoiler or a teaser, since my column about Hellas Mounds won't be out until late today on the internet or tomorrow on the stands, but whatever the case, I thought I'd give you a little taste of what the band that I've blogg...

    State of the (Punk) Union

    I'm trying to determine the current state of our community, and it's got me somewhat disappointed. In reflection on the last 5 years of AZPunk.com, there's no doubt to the great things that happen in our community. Unbreakable friendships have been f...

    Chip Again? Yeah, One More Song

    Above - Chippy's first drum set, 1971 Not to beat a dead country horse, but I was remiss yesterday in not mentioning that Chip Hanna, who I wrote about in my column Revolver this week, is playing at Mardi Gras tonight - the reason I mention this ...

    Bright Spots

    I'm a little bit shocked that my ol' homeboy Conor Oberst and his latest lineup for the ever-evolving Bright Eyes have actually debuted at #4 on the Billboard charts, despite remaining on Omaha's stalwart indie label Saddle Creek. The album, Cassada...

    Idol Weirdness

    A strange email came to us lately that's just so out there I've got to share it with you... this is what it said: Can a dead man win the American Idol songwriter contest? Maybe... I was co-writer with the late Kurt Mayberry. (research NT archives ...

    Mixtapes... Finally

    A while back I issued a call to arms in my column (found here) for DJs to send me their mixtapes/mix-CDs... and I didn't get much of a response. There was a little big, which I posted about here, but just a trickle. So I was stoked when DJentrificat...

    Diamonds Redux

    Last week, I promised to throw up some Runaway Diamonds tracks once I figured out how to do that with my new blogging software; all the glitches have been solved, so here's the tunes for you. I'm torn in my opinion of the songs, I think Pomerenke's ...

    Chippin'

    Hopefully you saw my column this week on punk-rock-drummer-gone-country-troubadour Chip Hanna (if not, read it now, you're obviously not working). I was under the weather a lot of this weekend and didn't get out to any shows, but yesterday Chip and ...

    The Skunk

    Yes, it's the infamous 4/20, which means little to anyone except the legions of pot smokers out there who need yet another reason to get stoned. And it also means there's a plethora of shitty jam band shows crackin' off, but I wouldn't recommend any...

    Post-Turkey Papago - Libations and laziness

    It took us a couple of days before we dragged our bloated bellies out in public after stuffing ourselves on Thanksgiving. Instead of hitting a hotspot with expectations of beautiful faces and flat tummies, we decided to hit a casual favorite, Papago ...

    Psych 101 - Attachment Disorder (self-released)

    We need some Quaaludes. We can't stop listening to Phoenix rock trio Psych 101's Attachment Disorder, and it's totally messing with our heads. All of its danceable dirges are giving us delusions: that Joy Division brought Ian Curtis back from the de...

    The Kim Philbys - Whir Whir Whir (Evangeline)

    San Francisco trio The Kim Philbys has guts -- don't they realize bands these days are supposed to be predictable, either melodious or arty-abrasive, not both? In this manner, they recall (yet don't sound like) the Meat Puppets, who encompassed brut...

    Muscles - Guns Babes Lemonade (Modular)

    It's hard to know when, or whether, the Australian one-man dance act known as Muscles is being serious. Live, ensconced behind a tower of keyboards and contraptions, he'll yell to his hipster crowd, "This is my trance song! Do you all like trance?!"...

    Vampire Weekend

    Music scribes can appreciate the smart-ass lyrics of Vampire Weekend's ber-groovy song "Oxford Comma," wherein singer and guitarist Ezra Koenig quips and croons, "Who gives a fuck about an Oxford comma?/I've seen those English dramas too-oo/They're...

    Will Hoge

    While Nashville's Will Hoge may lack the smooth soul grooves of the John Mayer Trio or the witty charm of Ben Lee's pop rock, Hoge's soulful voice and introspective lyrics will appeal to many of the same adult-alternative fans. To be certain, there ...
