    A funny song that will make you laugh in a bar every six months or so isn't necessarily something you'd want to hear every day. Having forgotten this basic truth, I noticed that the longer the Austin Lounge Lizards latest, Small Minds, stayed in my d...

    The Song Remains the Same - The Smithereens don't have a hot new angle, only solid old sounds

    Newspaper and magazine profiles are supposed to be written around what we in the trade call an angle, which is to say a method of approaching the subject that ties it to current events, granting the subject status as news, and so justifying the space...

    Belly, Going Up - A meeting in Rhode Island helps lead to a new King

    Back in 1991, Gail Greenwood was among the capacity audience that had packed a small club in Newport, Rhode Island, to see the much-hyped debut performance of a group called Belly. Much of the buzz about the Newport pop band was centered around front...

    The Country of Rock and Roll - From the ashes of Uncle Tupelo springs Wilco, genreless and great

    Over a plate of chicken-fried steak, fried corn, green beans and mashed potatoes, Max Johnston makes a startling revelation. Until just a few weeks ago, he had never heard Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Freebird"; worse yet, he says -- his boyish face sort of flu...

    Simply Beastie

    When the Beastie Boys came through Houston almost ten years ago, we sure did give 'em a good ol' Texas welcome. Their first album, Licensed to Ill, hadn't really caught on yet, and the audience at the Hofheinz Pavilion was hardly receptive to Madonna...

    Heeeeere's Branford! - The Tonight show behind him, Branford Marsalis moves to "de-ghettoize" music

    When you're talking with Branford Marsalis, a man considered by many to be one of the preeminent saxophonists on the jazz scene today, one thing quickly becomes apparent: talking with the media is not one of Marsalis' favorite activities. The cynical...

    Not the Sahm Old Thing

    It took several days to track Doug Sahm down. It was only when he paused for a moment in San Marcos at the office of somebody named Lucky that he had time to return a call. It may have been 30 years ago that Sahm toured with the Rolling Stones, but h...

    There's been a good amount of tooth gnashing and hair pulling these past months over proprietorship of something that, for lack of anything better to call it, is being bandied about as The Houston Sound -- as in: who's got it? where do I go to see it...

    Monster Men

    Exactly one year ago, Todd Park Mohr and his old high school chums Rob Squires and Brian Nevin were holed up in the Boulder Theater in their hometown of Boulder, Colorado, in the midst of recording what they today call their reason for being. "I've b...

    King of the Mild Frontier - Adam Ant is still dressed up, and now has somewhere to go

    Like so many of his British brethren who would later choose careers in music, Stuart Goddard began his career as an art-school dropout, fascinated with punk because it was as much about the packaging of image -- torn clothing, men wearing makeup, per...

    Heavenly Fire - Jason and the Scorchers reunite, and get hot in the process

    "It feels like a minor miracle." That's how Jason Ringenberg, the Jason of Jason and the Scorchers, describes his band's reunion. Houston fans of high energy, country-tinged rock and roll should thank heaven that the age of minor miracles isn't o...

    Getting Past the Goo - Their name's a drunken joke, but the Goo Goo Dolls' music is serious

    Utter the name Goo Goo Dolls to most people, and the response you get in return is automatic. "Who?" the person asks, suppressing fits of laughter. To the uninitiated, the Goo Goo Dolls sounds like the punch line to a bad joke. But to longtime f...

    Kicking the Genre Habit

    Pete Anderson's solo debut, Working Class, brings to mind a couple of local quotes. Joe Hughes has some great lines about how his goal was to be a musician, not a bluesman, and Gene Kelton claims he learned the blues from frequent ass-kickings during...

    Even the Normal (Get Lucky Sometime) - Craftsman Tom Petty uses the right tool for the right job

    After 20 years in the rock and roll business, Tom Petty still hasn't really made it. Unlike a Springsteen or a Dylan, Petty has yet to elevate to first-name status. Bruce is Bruce, and Bob is Bob. But Tom is definitely Tom Petty. Yet Petty is ev...
