    Playbill - Lucky Boys Confusion

    No one is more aware of a trend's limited shelf life than a record company executive. Lucky Boys Confusion learned this fact when its blend of ska, punk, rap, and reggae attracted the attention of Elektra. Since ska hybrid bands are so 1996, the la...

    Playbill - Bare Jr.

    People who are surprised by Bobby Bare Jr.'s post-punk leanings must not have been listening when his daddy was recording. Papa Bare was pretty hip himself, having released what is perhaps country music's first concept album in 1973, a collection o...

    Sumpin' Filthy - Local punker/chef Filthy McNasty is the Ginuwine article

    Filthy McNasty is one of those performers you can't keep to yourself. Hell, you're kinda pissed no one has told you about him sooner. McNasty, also known as Brian Michael McManus, hasn't been around quite long enough to be considered the city's dirt...

    Prodigal Sons - The Man in Black claims his Bastards

    When Johnny Cash speaks to you in your dreams, you better pay heed. That's exactly what Mark Stuart did after several nocturnal visits from the Man in Black, who spoke to the San Diego musician about, well, stuff, and also about playing country music...

    Racket - Pinpointing when Texas music jumped the shark

    One of the more engrossing sites on the Web is www.jumptheshark.com. On this site, which takes its name from an episode of Happy Days in which the Fonz water-ski jumps over a Great White to win a battle of wills with some California toughs, Web surfe...

    The Turn of the Screw - In which a narcotic, native-born music finds a nightclub home

    A few weeks ago, club owner Jay Ferrero gave his Richmond Strip sports bar Club Chico's a total overhaul. Named after the moniker he was given when he was stationed in the army in San Antonio (apparently he was the only Puerto Rican around), the New...

    Our Lady Peace - Spiritual Machines (Columbia Records)

    From the land of the deep freeze, and apparently the home of the deep thinkers, comes the latest release from Toronto post-grungers Our Lady Peace. It seems you won't find these brainiac musicians grappling over skateboard 'zines or drooling over the...

    VuD Caf - VuD Caf (Self-released)

    At first listen, it's easy to find shades of Marc Anthony, Chris Perez, Santana, Man, even a little Ricky Martin, to VuD Caf. But the truth is VuD sounds like only VuD. VuD Caf was formed by guitarist Jesse Flores and drummer Steve Salazar in...

    Playbill - Mem Shannon

    True triple-threat talents are very rare in any music, and to this general rule the blues is no exception. While thousands can play the blues on the guitar, perhaps only 10 percent of those can also write great songs, and a smaller fraction of those...

    Playbill - Ian Moore

    There was a day when MTV's Unplugged segments were actually worth waiting for through the myriad of ads for pimple cream and shampoo. Yet in 2001, any young stud or studette with one cool rock song in their repertoire gets a shot at playing acoustic...

    Minibill - Thrice

    Though they prefer to categorize themselves as "melodic hardcore," this Orange County-birthed quartet solidly melds punk and metal, finding the common ground between early Green Day and early Metallica (and especially that Kirk Hammettesque guitar). ...

    I'll Be Jiggerered! - Jiggernaut hopes to crush all in its path to glory

    Wolf Loescher loathed the three years he spent in Scotland. His German-born father had taken a job as general manager of an American-owned semiconductor plant and relocated the family from Texas to East Kilbride, near Glasgow. For the young teenager,...

    Choo Choo Ch'boogie - The Derailers get back on track with a major-label deal

    No matter what some delusional musicians might spew forth in their diatribes about "art" versus "commercialism," few bands would call for a ghostbuster if the specter of success actually paid them a visit. Selling a pittance of records to die-hard fa...

    The Naked Truth - Lucinda lays bare her Essence

    This much was clear: She wasn't coming back on her own. "Where's Lu?" a woman, apparently a manager, was asking. "We're late." Lu was last seen standing behind the outdoor stage, just after the rain had soaked Laclede's Landing on the St. Louis river...

    Nouveau Zydeco - Conroe's J. Paul Jr. is a zydeco rebel

    It's Saturday evening, and Our Lady Star of the Sea parish hall is filled with families enjoying cold beverages and homemade gumbo. The event is an old-fashioned zydeco dance, but the sounds coming from the stage aren't what most people expect at a c...

    Racket - Searching for the First Rock Song

    Rock historians have long debated the First Rock Song question. For years, the consensus had it that Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock" was this Holy Grail. Haley was supplanted in turn first by Elvis Presley's "That's All Right, Mama," and then wh...

    Dave Navarro - Trust No One (Capitol Records)

    Though the cover of the advance release of this debut solo effort has the former Chili Pepper and Jane's Addiction guitarist placidly eating a bowl of cereal, a better stab at truth in advertising would show him prone on a psychiatrist's couch. That...

    Four - Eliminate the Masses (Orchard)

    Metal is a tough thing to define these days, having become at least as fragmented as any other pop genre. Rap-metal, nu-metal, death metal, grindcore, progressive, trad, power, doom, goth, industrial, stoner, etc., all can somehow trace their roots b...

    Playbill - Willie Nelson's Family Picnic

    Just for laughs, I'd love to see ol' Willie open this show by leaning into the mike and intoning, "And now, we'd like to begin with a tune by Mr. Ornette Coleman" Nope, in what is probably music's surest bet, the red-going-gray-headed stranger will...

    Playbill - Ghostface Killah and Raekwon

    Having Wu-Tang Clan members Ghostface Killah and Raekwon (also known as Raekwon the Chef) in town is more of a good thing than people realize. Apart from the charismatic Method Man and the walking Behind the Music episode that is Ol' Dirty Bastard, n...
