    Funky Town - More syrup than jam

    Phoenix is a tough town for bands the city doesn't have a sound of its own (please don't count Gin Blossoms-style jangle rock), and you can count on one hand the number of bands that have made it outside of our desert metropolis. That wasn't always...

    Moniker Makeover - What's not in a name?

    Malibu "psych-folk-rock" band Simon Dawes and math-rock mavens Don Caballero might be on to something: Give your band a solo-sounding name, play full-bodied songs, and watch people scratch their heads trying to figure out who you're named after. (We'...

    Splitting Hairs - Comb to my window

    Do hairstyles influence musical styles? They do if you're Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge, whose various 'dos (and don'ts, in the case of her late '80s mullet) mirror her musical phases. Year of the Spiky Red Mullet (1988)...

    Hog Wylde - Close your eyes and think of metal

    If you asked Black Label Society guitarist/singer Zakk Wylde if he were a beer, what kind would he be, he'd probably heroically spout out the names of some hearty stout or high-octane Indian Pale Ale. Sadly, as evidenced on Black Label Society: The E...

    Pandora's Boss - Meet the guy behind the Web site that could be the MySpace.com of music

    Most casual music fans have that one person in their life they turn to before they buy new music, a guru who keeps up with the trends, reads the mags, goes to the shows, surfs the 'Net, and has taste that aligns with theirs. It could be a friend, a f...

    DJ Irene - Booth life

    Here's a real-life kind of needle exchange for you: A decade ago, superstar lesbian DJ Irene was shooting up meth and living out of her car in between gigs working the wheels of steel at L.A. dance clubs like Arena. Thankfully, the spiky-haired Sapph...

    Scott H. Biram - One man can be more than enough

    Scott H. Biram bills himself as "the Dirty Old One Man Band," and he lives up to the moniker by cranking his Gibson through a fuzzy old amp, blowing primordial blues harp with the aid of a harmonica rack, and providing relentless rhythms with an ampl...

    Growth Spurt - If they say so

    How come every time you see a NOFX picture, someone in the band is wearing an Adolescents shirt? Because The Ads friggin' wrote the book on old-school, Orange County agit-punk, that's why. And talk about living fast: The band was signed to Frontier R...

    Jazz Hands - The Energy Trio is equal parts Coltrane and Cobain

    On a quiet stretch of Old Litchfield Road in Litchfield Park, a jazz group called the Energy Trio is warming up at Park Wines, an unassuming wine bar that usually features straight-ahead, traditional jazz. But these band members look about as muc...

    Authority Solo - Conviction is arresting

    It's not a new phenomenon, but lately the perceptions of what punk rock is and is not have irritated the hell out of me. Do three chords, a faux-hawk, and a 14-year-old's snotty voice make a band punk rock? Is there a formula? Does it have to be loud...

    The Clientele - Broken English

    Remarkably lovely U.K. trio The Clientele, whose sound primarily falls somewhere between the bright psych-pop of late-'60s Britain and the lush jangle-chime of L.A.'s '80s Paisley Underground scene, pulls off the rare, swell trick of reminding you of...

    Those Damned Devil Bands - Quayle eggs

    Hello, Dan Quayle here. As the 44th Vice President of the United States of America, I all but coined the phrase "family values" back in 1992, when I famously criticized Murphy Brown for having a child out of wedlock. Sure, it was a fictional characte...

    DeVotchKa - Those fancy little gourmet jams

    Don't Stop Believin' - Or Tinker Bell will die

    The Mars Volta - Red-hot planet

    Gary Numan - It's the only way to live
