    World of Their Own - Carolina retronauts the Squirrel Nut Zippers swing clear of camp

    Perhaps the best way to begin a story about the Squirrel Nut Zippers is to clear up what they aren't. They do not belong to the so-called neo-swing movement that consists of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and other like-styled rockers-turned-zoot-suit-rioters....

    Apparently, there is such a thing as too upscale, even in the Galleria area. "It was just too snotty," says Lisa Calvin-Senejas, marketing director for the new Max's 2001 nightclub. "You can't expect people to wear jackets and ties in this weather." ...

    Old Friends

    Old Soul

    Frankly, it's a damn shame that there even has to be such a thing as a "neo-soul" movement -- that certain younger artists feel that it is their duty to preserve a form that never should've been endangered in the first place. But these days, contempo...

    Overdue respect... Thumbing through a May special section on the national blues scene in Rolling Stone, I was distressed to find not a single line of ink devoted to Houston. Where Austin had its own headline and at least a column's worth of coverage,...

    Sleight of Head

    It's no secret that Tricky is more at home in the studio than on stage. The trip-hop progenitor and Massive Attack alum claims he can't really play an instrument; he uses samplers and studio musicians to unleash the sounds in his head. Nonetheless, T...

    Resident Alien - Michael Fracasso is the misfit of the new Texas troubadour elite. Big surprise -- he's from Ohio

    "I was just at lunch with my uncle," says Michael Fracasso with a nervous laugh. "He stuck $50 in my shirt pocket as I walked out the door." It's the same old story, and, quite frankly, Fracasso knows as much: The black sheep breaks from family ...

    If Beethoven and Mozart were the pop superstars of their day, and the melodies of Lennon and McCartney are destined to survive for centuries, then it was only a matter of time before classic rock and classical music collided in one loud sonic boom. A...

    While it's true that the B-52's did return to the studio for a while, plans for a full-length CD of fresh material never panned out. Instead, the band has joined fellow college-rock mainstays the Pretenders on the concert circuit this summer -- not i...

    Culturcide's implosion at the tail end of the '80s might have been more of an event if the band hadn't been so uneventful in the first place. Rather than self-destructing in a fist-clenched blaze of glory, Houston's seminal underground deviants suffe...
