    Amplified - Maddness

    All's fair in radio and rap. Another national hit by a local rapper is on its way at The Box. "Down South," by Mista Madd, is the song. Featuring Mista Madd, Yungstar and Slim Thug from Swishahouse, the tune has a hook big enough to reel in a great...

    Playbill - Foxy Lady: Terri Hendrix. Also, The Brothers Creggan

    On name alone, it would be easy for a connoisseur to dislike Terri Hendrix. The bombastic moniker sounds a little plagiaristic, a little bit too much like Jimi You-know-who. But fact is, this female Hendrix is an ordinary San Antonio native with a gu...

    Ka-Blam! - If the X-Men were a metal band: Powerman 5000

    Tonight the Stars Revolt!, Powerman 5000's latest record and second major-label release, comes in some crazy packaging. The title and cover art call to mind 1940s pulp sci-fi: Everywhere are robot men, rocket ships and mechanized destruction. These...

    Meaningful Pop - Hide the men and children. Gay Dad is in town.

    About three years ago nearly every major label was chasing Gay Dad in London. Funny thing was, the band had yet to make any full-length recordings or even to be heard by anybody who mattered. The first thing the band ever did was disastrous, a 1994...

    Rotation - Fu Manchu King of the Road

    Fu Manchu King of the Road Mammoth Fu Manchu makes low-end, primordial metal, which is growing in popularity (though it's not going to be the new grunge or ska or swing or polka), if not originality. But the fact that some stuff on Fu Man's fif...

    Amplified - Saks Fifth Dimension

    Having a logo is as important to pop bands these days as it was to fashion houses some 40 years ago. Since brand advertising is more ubiquitous than ever (see Times Square, an NHL rink, publicity rags masquerading as general-interest magazines), an...

    Party On - Bad breaks haven't slowed Vallejo's funky ascent

    It's July 1998, and A.J. Vallejo is strolling through the parking lot of Austin's Tinseltown movie megaplex on a mission to see Armageddon, the syrupy sci-fi movie about a massive meteorite on a doomsday path toward earth. In an instant, the front ma...

    Raw Power - Stooges add to punk lore with the release of a seven-CD box

    This has got to be one of the strangest boxed sets, even though it stars the Stooges, one of rock's most celebrated (at least these days) bands. 1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions is a seven-CD collection, clocking in at just under eight hours, ...

    Amplified - A Clean, Bic-Lighted Place

    Playbill - Artier Than Thou: Half Japanese
