    Artful Roger

    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...

    Bad news for fans of ludicrous, beer-fueled mayhem: Austin power-punk troika El Flaco is terminating its often tempestuous -- though never less than mutually satisfying -- several-year relationship with Houston's Inner Loop club culture. Long a live-...

    Barenaked Ladies Stunt Reprise Wit is rarely rewarded in pop music. That's especially true on the American end, where heavy doses of irony haven't translated well to the airwaves. So naturally, Canada's premier cerebral-novelty exports, Bar...

    Rave and wave-offs, summer edition... Let me preface this selective rundown of the latest crop of local releases by clearing the air a bit: No, we will not be doubling our coverage of the Houston music scene now that the Public News is history, its a...

    In with the Old

    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...

    Billy Blues shares top billing (so to speak) in a new cable access show covering the genre's primo talent as they rip it up live at the Richmond Strip nightclub. Self-described "blues-rocker-turned-TV-producer" Gene Kelton is the man behind the unima...

    On this cold, rainy day in Germany, Canadian chanteuse Holly Cole couldn't be farther from Texas, which may explain why she's particularly interested in the local weather when she calls from Berlin. Talk quickly turns from the withering heat to last ...

    Reconstructing Brian - The troubled creative light behind the Beach Boys salvages himself and -- to an extent -- his music

    Everyone is trying to get a smile out of Brian Wilson. He's nearing the end of a photo session, sitting on a stool in the spacious, cluttered garage of his Los Angeles home, and his face is like iron. The photographer is running him through a series ...

    Looks Matter

    For six years, Girls Against Boys (GVSB to its fans) has been laying down reality-noir soundtracks that openly embrace and explore the lusty, dirty and hidden side of human nature. But at a recent performance on the Late Night with Conan O'Brien show...

    The Lost Years - Dead for almost a decade, Culturcide comes festering back to life

    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...

    Legalize it... It's hard to imagine a more lethal recipe for anarchy than mixing advocacy of an illicit substance with the support for an illicit radio station. But that's precisely the blend that resulted when the Montrose Radio Collective (94.9 FM)...

    Tutoned and Ready

    Granted, a good chunk of the crowd will show up for Tommy Tutone's lone hit, "867-5309/Jenny." But the Texas native, last heard from in the '80s, comes to Houston armed with a surprisingly fresh "comeback" CD, Rich Text Files. Buoyed by Tutone's husk...

    This Year's Model

    The 1998 edition of Smashing Pumpkins is a much different beast than the one that made its name coupling grunge's raw power with art-rock's lofty perfectionism. Turmoil and change have swirled around the group over the past two years. Drummer Jimmy C...
