    Static

    Big mouth strikes again... It was too good to be true. A phone call conceding defeat; a broken, bitter DJ out of a job once again -- and before he could even mutter a single insult in Houston. Without question, the voice on my answering machine was t...

    Clubland

    To hear some of the more underground night owls tell it, you'd think Club Some -- Emo's infamous after-hours alter ego -- has sold out. Not quite, says co-owner Neil Heller. "In essence, the crowd hasn't changed at all," says Heller, who foun...

    PatiencePays - Decades down the line, Sherman Robertson has finally made an album he likes

    In a city where several storied blues guitarists still play gigs regularly on local stages, eastside resident Sherman Robertson remains relatively obscure. And, in a sense, he has no one but himself to blame. Since the early 1980s, he has only occasi...

    Teddy Remembered

    Houston lost one of its most affable and musical native sons when bluesman Teddy "Cry Cry" Reynolds died of complications of cancer and other health problems in the early morning hours of October 1. Born in the Third Ward in 1931, Reynolds began his ...

    Four-Letter Friends

    "Because it's memorable," says singer/guitarist Tim Prudhomme when questioned about why anyone would name his band after a loathsome expletive designed to make any good mother's skin crawl. Go ahead: Say the San Francisco (by way of New York City) ba...

    Man or Monster?

    Whoever would've thought Barbra Streisand was such a Rob Zombie fan? When Babs wanted those pesky paparazzi to keep away from her recent wedding, her tactic was to spray them with aural artillery fire courtesy of Rob's band, White Zombie. Luckily for...

    Made to Suffer

    It's easy to see why Richard Buckner is such a fan of the Pacific Northwest's clammy climate: Rainy days are a legitimate excuse to sit around the house, dim the lights and brood. As if he needs a reason. Buckner could find the black-slate lining in ...

    Goo Goo Dolls Dizzy Up the Girl Warner Bros. My first clue that the Goo Goo Dolls had completely lost touch with their working-class garage-band roots came by way of a brief backstage conversation with bassist Robby Takac back in 1996. ...

    Rap-A-Lot gets busy... It looks like Houston's Rap-A-Lot Records -- once the only Gulf Coast label that truly mattered to the above-ground consumer -- has finally been shaken from its self-satisfied slumber by surging competition. It's hard to blame ...

    Get ready to duck. There's a disco-ball barrage brewing on the Richmond Strip. Polly Esther's, an upscale '70s- and '80s-themed dance club chain with franchises in Austin and eight other locations nationwide, has moved into the former Rock Bottom ...

    Family Style - The Robison philosophy on fraternal bonds: the less hyped the better

    It could be the stuff Nashville wet dreams are made of: two strapping, handsome brothers from a Wild West small town in Texas, both of whom sing and write songs. They grew up ranching, working on an oil pipeline and playing in a local band before the...

    The New Originals

    "We have always been an original band. The idea to do [covers] came strictly as an afterthought, as a way to make money," says Toy Subs lead singer Jamie Jahan Daruwala. "And even when we did the covers, we have never tried to sound like a record, an...

    Dumb as a whip... In its continuing effort to spice up the bland bouillon that is Buzz radio's "new alternative," Jacor Communications is eyeing other cities' leftovers. And it looks like the Kentucky-based conglomerate, which unceremoniously snatche...

    The Boy Next Door

    It's not something that jumps out at you right away. But dig deeper, and the evidence is all there: Lenny Kravitz is one of the most conservative rockers out there. Who else writes so pervasively (and so frequently) of such time-tested themes as love...

    No Respect? - In 1991, the Missiles were the coolest lame band in Houston. Seven years later, the irony still lingers.

    Go straight to the source, and he'll say the reason for the upcoming Missiles reunion show is one of simple economics. "We'd just like to make a third of what the Road Kings make on their reunion shows," says Charlie Sanders, the Missiles' bassi...
