    Mr. Loud and Sensitive - Bob Mould takes his act on the road one more time

    Eating It Up - Slobberbone is playing with its heroes, and living off expectations

    When Brent Best was finally ready to pick up a guitar and start messing with the songs rattling around in his 16-year-old head, he had already survived infatuations with Rush and R.E.M. By then, it was the bar-band rock of Jason and the Scorchers tha...

    Splendid Isolation - For Warren Zevon, it's all about how he looks in the hat

    His hair is close-cropped for the first time in years, and his gray T-shirt is snug around a trim torso. He wears blue jeans and reflecting sunglasses that hide bright eyes revealed only when he slides on his regular spectacles. As he walks through t...

    Gangsta rap, R.I.P.? The ripples from the death of Tupac Shakur in Las Vegas last month continue to roll out, with more than a few critics latching onto Shakur's shooting as added evidence (if any were needed) that gangsta rap is headed toward its ow...

    Wry Fidelity

    What sort of mischief can a smart, painfully self-conscious band from England stir up when it mixes a love of the trance-inducing experimentation of German bands such as Faust and Neu! with a decidedly less hip weakness for everything from Muzak to F...

    Sound Check

    There was a time not long ago when the only religious figure to have any clout in rock and roll was the devil, when decent, church-going folks wanted nothing to do with his primordial rhythms. Rock was nasty business, and its practitioners at least a...

    In Gourds' Country

    Lately, music fans in Austin have been hungering for another band to bolster the town's representation in the roots-alternative world -- a band with perhaps a touch of that oddball, broom-closet eclecticism that defines Texas and its massive crock po...

    A little vindication... On a personal level, I can identify with the plight of this city's much-maligned (and slightly paranoid) local music scene. As a plump kid who hungered for respect, I took a lot of abuse during my impressionable grade-school y...

    Top Harp

    The phrase "musician's musician" has been used to the brink of clichedom. Still, there's no denying that a Houston appearance by harmonica player/singer James Harman usually provides an opportunity to run into everyone who doesn't have a gig that nig...

    Memories of the Blues - Antone's celebrates 20 years of music with -- what else? -- more music
