    Regular Treat

    With the hubbub of the holidays behind us, what's needed is a peaceful evening with some close friends, such as the crowd that shows up every Sunday night at the Third Ward's El Nedo Cafe to hang around with Eugene Moody. There's probably no reg...

    Home with the Blues - Joe "Guitar" Hughes has never strayed far from the town that gave him his sound

    On June 19, there was a fish fry at the Savoy Ice House on Dowling Street in the Third Ward. The occasion, of course, was Juneteenth, and the band playing on the sidewalk was making a joyful noise. Joe Hughes, standing in with some old friends, growl...

    Molly's Resolution - Houston's matron of mean wants to settle down a bit in '96

    To stay at the top of her game, Molly Elswick has had to play it pretty tough. Slipping into her Miss Molly persona on-stage night after night, she's talked the talk and walked the walk while carefully forging a respectable career on the blues-rock c...

    Guit-in' Down

    Junior Brown's trademark is his purity, a hard-line, country way of doing things that, curious as it sounds, has earned the 43-year-old Ernest Tubb disciple the status of one of Texas' more endearing crossover phenomenons. "It takes a long time to fi...

    Play till You Drop - Yes, they're a party band, but the Gingbreadmen are out for more than just a good time

    Making a living off of other people's music has a way of snuffing out ambition. After all, regardless of how flashy, funny and technically adept you are, you can only go so far aping other musicians' work before your credibility levels off, motivatio...

    Post-Cold War Crazies

    From Russia -- with love, and tongue firmly planted in cheek -- Limpopo offers up a vodka-dazed zaniness that can only be described as, well, intoxicating. The four clownish comrades who make up this Soviet quartet have been kicking around the States...

    Losing the Beat - Not long ago, Anthrax's Charlie Benante wondered if he could still pound it out

    Call it a mid-rock crisis. That's probably the best way to sum up Charlie Benante's state of mind while he was holed up in his New York home a year ago, working on the music for Anthrax's latest release, Stomp 442. Day and night, Benante stayed insid...

    Rebel from the North - Mary Cutrufello may not fit the country mold, but she knows the country sound

    Without a doubt, Mary Cutrufello makes for an unlikely cowgirl. On this warm December day, the singer/songwriter/guitarist models the dressed-down Johnny Cash look, foregoing any flashier hints to her occupation for a simple black T-shirt and jeans a...

    Critic's Choice - Good Guy

    It would be simple to dismiss Guy Forsyth as just another flamboyant fish in the stream of modern-day blues spilling out of the state capital these days. His style is straightforward enough, applying all the desired elements -- swampy Cajun swing, el...

    Digital Bloating - Without question, enhanced CDs offer more but of what?

    Okay, I'll admit it: I'm a slave to technology. When laser discs resurfaced in the late '80s, I couldn't pass up owning one of the magical machines. And having shelled out the bucks for a laser disc player, it seemed to make sense to upgrade to a hom...

    Ardent Idea - Can a Spot from Dallas do better than a Big Star from Memphis?

    Sour Success - Radiohead wants to prove it's more than just a "Creep"
