    Ethnical Questions - Plus: Shimmying with Mary Jane on the Washington Avenue shuttle

    Last week I asked readers to comment on the suggested addition of a new category -- for Traditional/Ethnic music -- to this year's Houston Press Music Awards. Response was swift (thanks) and overwhelmingly supportive. So, in keeping with the democrat...

    Elvis and Other Attractions

    If any other artist were pulling this reunion stunt, we'd call it bankrupt revivalism, or gross opportunism, and dismiss it with a sneer. Much like we'll soon be doing with the bankrupt revivalist reunion opportunism of the Eagles' unwelcome reformat...

    Hole Live Through This DGC As the coverage of Kurt Cobain's death has so aptly proven, rock critics have never been embarrassed to chip away at the tenuous barriers that musicians erect between their art and their lives. It's a nasty habit,...

    Like Father, Like Son - Spanic Boys make classic rock and roll a family affair

    Rock critic Ed Ward tells a funny story in the liner notes to Early Spanic Boys, a recent Rounder reissue of the Milwaukee band's long-lost first album. Amongst the flood of product arriving through the mail in hopes of review, Ward noticed one album...

    Noise Doctors

    By the sound of Sonic Youth's latest disk, New York's guitar-noise barrier busters have abandoned their skronk mandate for quieter avenues of snotty expression. But since what's hip on the East Coast will ever find its way to the West (or is it the o...

    Japanese Catnip - Osaka's Shonen Knife cuts a pretty slice of alternative pop

    Of the many rock-culture legacies left in the wake of the late Kurt Cobain, the most lastingly important may be neither his music nor his sad self-martyrdom. Because when Cobain and Nirvana opened the floodgates of an underground musical spectrum tha...

    Phish Bait

    Hippie rock has been back for a while now, epitomized by a Spin Doctors/Blues Traveler circuit with a loose jamming feel that's great for about ten minutes, until the players hit their skill plateaus and start relying on dulled synapses and feel-good...
