    Tangled Web - From Mexico to L.A. via Alaska and El Paso, Tito Larriva has seen it all -- and more

    The phone call finally arrives around 6 p.m., four hours late. The connection crackles and hisses as if it resents the human intrusion; Tito Larriva's voice on the other end sounds hollow, distant. The imagination reels. This is, after all, the prima...

    Real-Life Product

    This is the story of O -- Lil' O, to be exact. On a Friday morning, Lil' O, the street and studio persona of 20-year-old Houstonian Ore Magnus-Lawson, tears into the parking lot of a West Houston pool hall in a black Honda Accord. Sauntering into the...

    Funk Revival

    It's easy to forget now just how huge Grand Funk Railroad was during its '70s heyday. Critics may have dismissed the band's brand of meat-and-potatoes hard rock, seeing it as nothing more than soundtrack fodder for suburban-basement bong blowouts. Bu...

    Sparking Interest - David Rice finally throws the switch on greenelectric

    When David Rice finally got down to work recording greenelectric, his debut CD for Columbia Records, he couldn't have been farther from his element. Stowed away in the converted remains of an old grain mill in the rolling countryside outside of Bath,...

    Her phrasing is reminiscent of Billie Holiday; her deep range brings to mind Sarah Vaughn. She's won several awards and made classic contributions to the history of jazz, including a universally acclaimed duet release with Ray Charles. But perhaps wh...

    Starved for Respect - The Hunger aren't after your sympathy, but they could use a pat on the back

    The drive from downtown Houston to the Hunger's office-park rehearsal facility is only about 15 minutes. But as far as the Inner Loop's hipster set is concerned, the place might as well be on the other side of the earth. And in a way, it is. Hun...

    Child of Fate

    The Space Monkeys hail from Manchester, a working-class enclave far from the of-the-moment trendiness of London. That bleak spot is also the hometown of the long-defunct Joy Division, and of the more recent English phenomena Stone Roses and Oasis. ...

    Unforgettable? - The new Bobby Fuller retrospective salutes a questionable legacy

    There's nothing like death to give a rising rock and roll star instant status as a legend. Ritchie Valens, who died in the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper, is considered such even though he had only two Top 40 hits. The legacie...
