    Sophomore Flops - Record companies to artists: "What have you done for me lately?"

    Playbill - Elvis Incarnate: Mojo Nixon

    Mojo Nixon's appeal comes from a riotous combination of his rockabilly-inspired adolescent humor and his disdain for icons. For the better part of 15 years, Nixon has laid his cards out on the table. It's all there in the song titles: "Debbie Gibson ...
