    Number Sine - Pita mingle

    Effortless projects seem to be kissed by fate, just like the newly released EP by local indie-electronica trio Number Sine. Formed after a chance meeting at Pita Jungle, and signed after sending out only one CD, they're gearing up for a national tour...

    Unsane - Heavy fuel

    Reality does bear out this theorem: The smaller the band, the greater the intensity. Trios have generated some of the loudest, most intense, most volatile squall: Cream, Blue Cheer, Minutemen, Painkiller (John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and ex-Napalm Death ...

    Thugs Life - Those who can

    Judging by the malevolently eager look on his face, whatever Dale Fox of Phoenix band World Class Thugs has been keeping in his trunk for the past six months promises to be good. It is. It's three oversized masks of World Class Thugs singer Jocelyn R...

    Hot in the Shady's - Location, location, location

    We remember back in the day when Shady's had a different name and was full of bearded, blue-collar workers guzzling beer to wrap up a hard day's work. Not so much any more with its new name and new jukebox, the little neighborhood bar has become a ...

    Make Like Morrissey - Passion show

    Morrissey, England's most dapper downer, isn't quite as depressed as he used to be. In fact, he almost seems to be enjoying what he does these days. Nevertheless, the guy is still as press-shy as ever and just can't be bothered to pick up a phone to ...

    The Men Behind the Man in Black - A tip of the high-hat

    Why on Earth would anyone want to see Johnny Cash's backing band without Johnny Cash? It's a fair question, perhaps even necessary, given the Man in Black's hallowed status. Cash's music meant so much to so many that it would be easy for former bandm...

    Betty Davis - They Say I'm Different/Betty Davis (Light in the Attic)

    Betty Davis spent the 1970s setting a towering standard for future freak-funk broads. Her strong come-ons in the growly vox department could still scare modern wanna-fucks back to the Stone Age. The brief, volatile relationship with her then-hubby Mi...

    Dinosaur Jr. - Beyond (Fat Possum)

    Forget the Foo Fighters. The true champ when it comes to blending melody and mayhem is a tumultuous trio known as Dinosaur Jr. The prototypical hardcore heroes were making heads bop and torsos flail back when Dave Grohl was still taking his cues from...

    Colin Hay - Man still at work

    The downside of achieving massive success is becoming typecast. After leaving the airwaves, many of the original Star Trek cast found it difficult to secure work because of their association with the series; Chumbawamba has a 20-year career but is re...

    Citizen Cope - Get in the van

    When it comes to straddling genres, few artists have the crossover breadth of Citizen Cope (a.k.a. Clarence Greenwood). He's listed with granola-heavy Web site Jambase.com, and he certainly has the lazy acoustic-guitar appeal of Ben Harper or Jack Jo...

    Clutch - Now and forever
