  • The English Beat


    The English Beat

    In the beginning (i.e., 1978), the music gods created The Beat. And verily, the firmament known as Birmingham, England, brought forth a mighty 2-tone ska revivalist group, infused with sped-up reggae beats and poppy dancehall sounds and fronted by co...

    Everybody together now: Anoint my phallus with the blood of the FALLEN!! With that quaint little sing-along, South Carolina death metal institution Nile takes cock rock to an all new level. Potential latent menstruation envy aside, you gotta give Nil...

    The Lisps

    When we hear The Lisps -- the sassy sound of wind blowing through a melodica, the jangly gypsy guitars, the coed vocal harmonies sung with the speed of auctioneers -- we can see a caravan in our mind's eye, trekking across some unsettled plane at dus...

    Nine tips to take your strip club experience to the next level

    "We can talk about anything you want, long as you're naked." -- Congressman David Dilbeck (Burt Reynolds) in the 1996 movie Striptease Striptease is a terrible movie. And there are, without a doubt, a lot of terrible strip clubs. But why is it ...

    Al Perry and Fish Karma reflect on decades in the desert

    Phoenix was built on a desire to buy and to have. People can own acres of land on the side of a mountain, and they can go to the outlet mall to pick out all the finest furniture and accouterments to fill their homes. At the same time, there are misfi...

    Thrust Thursdays

    Last time we checked, the Scandinavian cognoscenti don't dole out Nobel Prizes for genius DJs. But if they did (and Lord knows they should), we're sure DJ Nos would get such an honor. Why, pray tell? Simply because the cat brained up the brilliant id...

    Firestorm Fest: It's the best lineup of crappy band names in the biz

    There are a lot of bad band names out there, but no genre suffers from titular uncoolness like metalcore (which we'll admit we're not fans of). The Firestorm Fest -- a mega-event meant to give the frustrated and angry fans of the genre a place to scr...

    At the very East - Not-so-dirty Scottsdale

    The East Valley beckoned once again for a Saturday-night gallivant. This time, we poked around in Old Town and slid into Pattie's 1st Avenue Lounge to drink a few rounds with the locals.(Click here for more photos.) Things started to fire up aroun...

    Ida - Lovers Prayers (Polyvinyl)

    In the past five or 10 years, indie rock's subgenres have been multiplying like bacteria. Dream pop, shoegaze, sadcore, slowcore . . . one has to be a scholar to keep them straight. Ida deserves a tag all its own -- "minimalist folk" or "quietcore fo...

    Lenny Kravitz - It Is Time for a Love Revolution (Virgin)

    Lenny Kravitz hates it when critics call him retro, contending that love, revolution, and smooching should belong to every generation. But the problem with Kravitz's new album, It Is Time for a Love Revolution, is not just its bland message; it's tha...

    The Mars Volta - The Bedlam in Goliath (Umvd Labels)

    The Mars Volta switches gears on its fourth album, giving beat-propelled dance pop a spin. We kid! The Bedlam in Goliath is stuffed with nine-minute alt-prog epics -- the type the band has refined to blood-drawing sharpness over the past seven years....

    Beach House

    When political times get tough, artists get dreamy. Stuck in the Vietnam War and immersed in the civil rights movement, musicians in the '60s engaged in psychedelic escapism. Fumbling through the Iraq War and trapped in the murky quicksand of the eco...

    Old Time Relijun

    Old Time Relijun subscribes to three basic tenets of life: Eat, drink, fuck. Bred in Olympia, Washington, the band's sound is primal and urgent -- as if barnyard animals were rioting through an uppity art college. The three-piece, fronted by enigmati...

    The Lemonheads

    At some point, Lemonheads frontman Evan Dando must have realized that no one really knew who he was. It most likely happened sometime earlier in this decade, when he was trying to make it as an alt-country troubadour -- just like Gram Parsons, one of...
