    Austin's Fave

    Jimmy LaFave's meat-and-potatoes blend of rambunctious instinct and softhearted sincerity is about as awe-inspiring as blue-collar rock gets these days. That may explain why he's become a live music institution throughout Texas, even if fans in his a...

    Corrosive Talent

    Wondering why the multimillion-selling Metallica chose the relatively little-known Corrosion of Conformity as their touring partners? Maybe it's because, whatever you may say about their limp Load or new Lollapalooza hairdos, the guys in Metallica kn...

    Fixed Up - Shawn Colvin's made A Few Small Repairs, and she's ready to show them off

    As she slid inconspicuously onto the stage at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion last September, Shawn Colvin seemed determined not to draw too much attention to herself. This was, after all, a baby step in the scheme of things, a modest clearing of...

    The Girl in the Glasses - Nana Mouskouri has the world. So why does she want America?

    If you're looking for yet more evidence of just how isolated America is from the rest of the world -- and how desperate the rest of the world is to break through that isolation -- all you have to do is check out Nana Mouskouri. A Greek native who's b...

    Is dead horse dead meat? In a word, yes. And this time, it appears, the Houston band has finally taken the proverbial stake through the heart. No more last-gasp reorganizations, no more resurrections; I've been assured by its founders that this time ...

    Sound Check

    There's something about us rock geeks that makes us need to organize and categorize and rank every damn piece of music we own -- and certainly no entertainment product is as fetishized as the rock album. What's more, perhaps only sports nuts rival ro...

    Manholing the competition... Houston's Manhole recently scored a victory in a scuffle to retain exclusive rights to its name. Late last month, the local heavy rock institution won a lawsuit that pitted the female-fronted group against a West Coast ba...

    African Electric

    Though this year's International Festival has an Asian theme, the heart of the musical action is likely to once again be the World Music Stage, thanks to the indelible harmonies of Zap Mama, the insistent dance rhythms and celestial singing of soukou...

    Broadcast Power - What can a little radio play do? It can make you a star. Just ask Vallejo.

    Radio is repetition. And since repetition breeds familiarity, and familiarity puts asses in seats, radio is also everything to an up-and-coming band. This is one of the few constants of the music business, and Vallejo, an Austin-based Latin-rock outf...

    Jazz Royalty - George's last name may be Duke, but on the keyboards, he's a king

    It's 8:30 a.m., an hour when most musicians are on their second or third dream, but jazz keyboardist George Duke is wide awake and ready to talk. What kind of musician would be up at this ungodly hour? "I guess people who wanna sell a record," Duke l...

    Ready to Ride - Alice's Tin Pony breaks from the gate with Hate Book

    The Fabulous Satellite Lounge can be a decidedly unfabulous forum for any opening act, let alone a local upstart with an embryonic fan base. The Washington Avenue club's cavernous interior has a way of making a decent-sized crowd look minuscule, whic...

    Keen Life

    Anyone who's been to a Robert Earl Keen show might have heard him tell the story of his 1974 Fourth of July. Exhausted from the heat and the tequila, Keen took a little afternoon nap while at Willie Nelson's annual picnic. He awoke to pillars of smok...

    Jungle Beat - Hip-hop's great lost act is ready to give it another try

    Ask hip-hop fans about the Jungle Brothers, and they'll likely refer you to the better known groups De La Soul and A Tribe Called Quest. For folks old enough to remember rap's pre-gangsta days, the Jungle Brothers were the other act in the Native Ton...

    Still Flying - Roger McGuinn is happy to look at the past, but he's not ready to live in it

    Roger McGuinn prefers to travel light; two guitars are all he carries, and a 12-string Rickenbacker is always one of them. At an age when many graying rockers are thinking about calling it a career, McGuinn, 54, is busy indulging the same wayfaring f...

    Funk Historians

    Fans of hard-core, Clinton-era (George Clinton, that is) funk should find something -- if not everything -- about Shag eerily familiar. The multiracial octet is nothing if not a sweaty-assed '90s encapsulation of Clinton's P-Funk experience circa 197...
