    Sound Check

    Now that the interminable "holiday season" is officially over, I was hoping to start getting some fresh new CDs in the mail for review, but either the labels are following tradition and releasing next to nothing in January, or the flacks responsible ...

    Rotation

    The Panic Choir Soul and Luna Bay Leaf Productions You might expect a band with "panic" in its name to have some sort of edgy quality, some end-of-the-millennium angst, some fear and loathing maybe -- some attitude of some stripe, at least ...

    MegaStoopid

    Way back in the bad old days, when some of us inexplicably thought it might serve us well to gain a theoretical basis for the act of argument, we signed up for high school debate classes, where we learned instead to twirl Bic sticks around our thumbs...

    Talkin' Townes Van Zandt - Despite years of commercial and self neglect, the songs are still coming through

    Troubadour Townes Van Zandt carries the sort of reputation that invites hyperbole, and I'm only one among the many writers who have tripped over their tongues trying to put into words the wholly justifiable esteem with which a small but intensely loy...

    Pop Moment

    Okay, here's a joke: what does the Deadhead say when he runs out of weed? Wow... this band sucks.... Now that that's out of the way, there's serious business to attend to, like the mending of fences. A couple of weeks back, when I was compiling...

    Live Shots

    Banana Blender Surprise Wednesday, January 11 The Pig "Live" Send in the Crowns, Banana Blender Surprise's year-old debut CD, was riddled with a sort of goofball hi-jinx and food humor that struck me as indicative of a joke band that might ...

    Ray Wylie Gets Intense - The self-improved "Redneck Mother" man refines his technique

    There's a lot of hooey these days about old outlaws and rowdy friends settling down, and Johnny Cash has become an elder statesman of MTV. Ray Wylie Hubbard, however, has taken a different tack. He's decided that middle age is the time to become more...

    Buddy Ace Moves On

    Buddy Ace's death of a massive heart attack while singing "Time To Move On" at a Waco nightclub early Christmas morning was an eerily coincidental demise for the veteran balladeer, whose career, stage name and image were patterned after another perfo...

    Blowing His Own Horn

    On the phone from his Manhattan office, jazz trumpeter Wallace Roney sounds dubious about the interview from the start, as if he's been through this a few too many times already and knows well enough that there's no way that what he does for a living...

    Help Wanted - Get those suggestions in now for the Press Music Awards

    I know it seems early in the season to be getting into this, but I got caught playing catch-up last time, so we'll go ahead and start thinking. What we're thinking about is the Sixth Annual Houston Press Music Awards, which, barring natural disaster,...

    Ezra Charles and the Works Modern Years Icarus Records In certain circles -- including, I've got to admit, mine -- local showboating pianist and bandleader Ezra Charles is perceived as something of a joke. It's an attitude arising from Char...

    Good Clean Fun

    With all the young blues players spilling out of Austin these days, each one trying just a little too hard to expand the venerable tradition into something modern (i.e., something that won't sound so out of place on the radio), it does a heart good t...

    In the Room - Bob Gallarza aims to bring Tejano music into the '90s

    Deer Park resident Bob Gallarza may have lived one of the American music industry's most exotic and long-lived careers, but sitting across a table from him at Butera's last week, it's clear that he's nobody's idea of a legend. Now nearing 48, he's so...

    Post-Christmas Clearance - John Frusciante and Hildegard von Bingen never went to Festus, Missouri

    I'll tell the truth: with the rare exception, I don't buy CDs. Record company schmoes send 'em to me for free, hoping I'll review them in some space like this. So I don't spend a lot of time in record stores, and I don't know if they, like Dillard's ...

    News from Nowhere - Clearing the desk for the New Year, and other excuses for a column

    There's no particular reason why things have to be this way, but with the year drawing to a close, it seems like all the news is broken up into tiny little bits. So instead of real stories or anything genuinely compelling, there's a pile of news bite...

    That Indefinable Something - Chris Duarte brings a retro energy to rockin' blues and bluesy rock

    It's the most predictable cliche in music writing: all blues-rock power trios -- especially if the frontman's from Texas -- must be compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan. Why doesn't every profile of an electric guitar player carry a comparison to T-Bone Wa...

    New Year's for the Irresolute

    There are plenty of local and touring shows this week, all of which have some degree of merit to recommend them. But at this late date in the year, sentimentality, nostalgia and increased alcohol consumption replace the standard critical criteria, ma...
