    Same Old Waylon - The most rebellious thing Waylon Jennings has done is not change

    Given his history, it's not surprising that Waylon Jennings has been a little confusing on the whole outlaw/rebel thing. This is, after all, the man who used to room with a pill-popping Johnny Cash, and popped his share of pills at the same time. (Th...

    More than a quick fix... "I wanted to base our [career] trajectory on the Police," says Fastball's Miles Zuniga. "When they got together, they had all been in these other bands; the oldest, Andy Summers, was like 35." It's not that Zuniga has an...

    Cult Survivors

    Here's a quiz: when singer Ian Astbury and guitarist Billy Duffy of the Cult parted company last year, they did so on somewhat less than amicable terms because they: a) had beaten the crap out of each other in a drunken brawl after a concert in Rio d...

    Clandestine The Ale Is Dear Clandestine Houston's Celtic-music community may be approaching critical mass. Sooner or later, a band playing the traditional music of the British Isles is going to come out of our city and become successful eno...

    Prankster Punk - Chixdiggit make a mockery of everyone -- including themselves

    Just as they're getting their feet wet in this country, Canada's Chixdiggit appear headed for a collision of some sort with America's politically correct strata. Their name -- pronounced "Chicks Dig It" -- is bound to be seen as sexist to some. Ditto...

    Let It Rock - The Nields turn up the volume on their folk-tinged sound

    Folk acts going electric is a story as old as 1965, when Bob Dylan stunned purists by recording half of his fourth release, Bringing It All Back Home, with -- of all things -- an ornery bunch of rock and rollers. That year, the Paul Butterfield Blues...

    Grant Lee Buffalo Copperopolis Slash/Reprise Copperopolis is hardly the triumphant, back-to-the-wall effort you'd expect from Grant Lee Buffalo after 1994's Mighty Joe Moon, a frequently brilliant near miss. If Mighty Joe Moon was the sonic...

    Tori's Story

    Plenty of songwriters draw upon low points in personal relationships to churn up their creative juices. Tori Amos, however, tends to take it a step further. She not only churns up memories of past partners and their actions, she disembowels them, tos...

    Not the Same Old Junkies - A new label and energy return Canada's moaners to the spotlight

    It's been a while, but the four members of Cowboy Junkies can actually say that they feel like a band again. For a long time, the instrument playing members of the Canadian group best known for its droning remake of Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane" retreated ...

    Not just another cranky pop band... In attempting to bundle Super Deluxe's moody nature and strange work habits into a single, excusable cliche, it would be easy to type "temperamental artists." That's how they're often described. But it isn't the wh...

    Her Wayor No Way - Ani DiFranco's loner's resolve is beginning to pay off

    Ani DiFranco has nothing to be sore about these days. Though she's often labeled a folkie malcontent because of her caustic lyrics and offbeat, aggressive performances, at this moment, the 25-year-old singer/songwriter is in a mood highly uncharacter...

    Happy Trails - A cowboy's name hasn't kept bluesman Roy Rogers off his chosen range

    "Hobart -- great name. There's not many of those in the world, I bet." Roy Rogers seems genuinely tickled to be speaking with someone who's probably taken as much flack as he has for a name he had nothing to do with choosing -- even if that someo...

    Playing Dumb - Atticus Finch are smarter -- and hungrier -- than they sound

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand Atticus Finch. The Houston quartet's songs aren't all that complex; their post-grunge guitars plod along much like scads of other Pearl Jam/Soundgarden wannabes. So it may surprise the band's detr...

    Sound Check
