    Static

    A shoe that fits... Sift through the ashes of the deceased post-punk redneck outfits Tab Jones, Fleshmop and Pork Belly Picnic, and you'll turn up most of the story behind Houston's Horseshoe, a wild and woolly '90s answer to the gonzo psychedelic ex...

    Clever Criminals - The Borrowers take from anyone they can in order to find themselves

    Los Angeles, full to the hilt with self-centered wannabes and bitter never-weres, is hardly the friendliest environment for a musician seeking fame and recognition. And if a performer already has Cleveland, home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, on ...

    Wordless Wonders - Death Valley does its talking through its playing

    Tune into '90s rock radio sometime, and what do you hear? There's Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong singing about not having much to sing about. There's Smashing Pumpkin Billy Corgan, who, despite all his rage, is still just a whiny brat with bad hair...

    Stupid Is as Stupid Sells - The Ozz man is back, as dreadfully (and delightfully) dumb as ever

    Do you know how Ozzy Osbourne's metal-cult guitar hero Randy Rhodes died? In a plane crash, sure, along with Osbourne's hairdresser and pilot -- that much is rock and roll mythology. But do you know why the plane crashed? It was buzzing Ozzy's tour b...

    His Generation - The Hates' leader may be the last of Houston's original punks

    Christian Arnheiter has every excuse to sit and sulk. For two decades, his band the Hates has been thrashing away in blissful obscurity, all the while upholding the tattered flag of the punk aesthetic. And now he has to watch as bands such as Green D...

    Sound Check

    In a decade that's quickly becoming the era of the signing frenzy, a year hasn't gone by without its lion's share of overlooked releases -- and 1995 is no exception. For those inquiring ears that care to listen, plenty of swell music exists that simp...

    Reflections '95... Now that I'm a five-month veteran of the Houston scene, I feel that maybe I have the minimum experience required to mouth off a little; perhaps in a year, I'll mouth off a bit more. So, as we usher in 1996, I hold these bounded mus...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
