    Wilder Thing - Webb's Commandment: You Got to Move

    Webb Wilder wants to set the record straight. The self-proclaimed "last of the full grown men" is not one to strap on a big guitar and try to cover his errors and distract his detractors with a lot of thrash, twang and thunder. The part-time B-movie ...

    Ready for Home - Sherman Robertson left for success; now he's returning for a shot of the Houston blues

    "Houston -- A Great Place to Be From" could be the motto for local musicians -- especially blues musicians -- who achieve any degree of visibility and success. For a town that's so famously pro-business, there's never been much effort made to encoura...

    Okay, about that Jessie Dayton teaser last week. It was sort of a no-brainer for anyone who's been paying attention. Dayton is working with Randall Jamail and Justice Records. They're in an Austin studio now, recording what I'm told will be 15 tracks...

    Whole New Posture

    So I read in a magazine the other day -- I think it may have been U.S. News and World Report -- that punk rock, of all things, is back. Yippee, I say to myself. Punk's not dead. Nope, not dead at all. Instead, I'm told, it's back. Which could me...

    Take This Band and Love It

    Iowa beatnik folkie Greg Brown was my long-scheduled reservation for this week's Critic's Choice slot, but according to the folks at the Mucky Duck, where Brown was scheduled to appear on Saturday, he postponed so he wouldn't have to compete with Nan...

    Austinite and former Houston homeboy Jessie Dayton is still being coy about the label deal he's reportedly on the verge (at press time) of signing, and since we've waited this long, I guess I'll be coy, too, and let the ink dry before spilling the be...

    Kicking Giant Rice Coffee House Monday, February 13 Kicking Giant's latest album, Alien I.D., is surprising, not so much for the music but for the fact that it's on K records, the Olympia, Washington, label that's defined the naive-pop soun...

    Pond Rising

    Sound Check

    The way I see it -- today, anyhow -- is that this modern rock thing I keep hearing about on the radio can be viewed as a three-headed monster. Now before you point out the obvious and scream that you can't categorize an artist's soul that way, j...
