    Fu Manchu - Boogie SUV

    Fu Manchu's King of the Road was a modern-day stoner-rock classic, kicking off the new millennium with a shit-eating grin that said "Maybe we're joking and maybe we're not, but either way you will be rocked beyond all recognition by the time we're th...

    Mojo Rising Again - Rhino reissues the Doors catalogue

    It's been 40 years since the Doors stood the Summer of Love on its head with a self-titled statement of purpose that sent the brooding fuck-me pop of "Light My Fire" all the way to No. 1 but also included the Oedipal midnight rambling of "The End," a...

    LCD Soundsytem - Sound of Silver (DFA/Capitol Records)

    Since turning irony-minded heads in 2002 with its debut single "Losing My Edge," LCD Soundsystem has made a name for itself as the leading purveyor of winking dance tracks. With big dumb beats, lyrics skewering all that is hip, and plenty of a-go-go ...
