    Loud and Clear

    In the middle of a serious discussion about the fickleness of the music-buying public, Everclear's Art Alexakis cracks wise. "No one talks about bands who have two successful records back to back," he says. "Do you know why they don't? It doesn'...

    "Fly" Boys

    When Sugar Ray's chart-hogging single, "Fly," was first completed in rough-draft form during rehearsals in New York City, the band received a taste of things to come. A girl they'd met happened to be in the studio when the band played through a loose...

    Moonlight. Mark Olson is staring at the moon, now hovering low in the early evening sky above the desert floor of Joshua Tree, California. He's staring, unshaven and in rumpled khakis, not to howl or scratch or bay or even to contemplate, but to find...

    Slippery Sam... Back in spring 1996, Sam Taylor was brimming with big ideas and grand intentions. The onetime producer/manager/ guru to Katy's holy-rock troika -- King's X, Galactic Cowboys and Atomic Opera -- had suddenly materialized after a length...

    Been There. Done That. Doing It Again. - Cotton Mather propels pop plagiarism back to the '90s

    In a city like Austin, it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. There are hundreds of clubs, twice as many bands, and every week it seems like a new act is the darling of the scene. So it's no surprise that Cotton Mather, led by singer/guitarist Robert ...

    Well-Raised and Confused - Mood rockers Blue October struggle after life's answers

    For Justin Furstenfeld, getting away was the only solution. Plummeting into drug addiction and other varieties of self-destruction, the singer/guitarist had seen his options evaporate in the waning months of 1996. Barely out of high school, Furs...

    Well Aware

    Think of Aware Records as the little label that could. For better or for worse, the Chicago-based imprint -- with brief histories in Boston, Vail, Colorado, and Dallas -- is partly responsible for launching the careers of several of modern rock's mos...

    All That Glitters - Now that the hype is over, the Crystal Method just wants you to listen

    It's safe to say that the Crystal Method's Scott Kirkland isn't losing a wink of sleep over electronica's soggy commercial performance in 1997. The same goes for its questionable chart prospects in '98, not to mention the genre's relative fall from f...

    Quadruple Weird - "Experimental" doesn't quite describe Flaming Lips' Zaireeka
