    Honky-Tonk History - He had 78 hits over 50 years and revolutionized country music. Now, Hank Thompson gets a new green light.

    Raves and wave-offs... Evidently, Liquid is just getting started -- or so says the group's leader. Bassist Kyle Watt has assured me (in a somewhat defensive manner) that the Houston quartet had yet to establish a real flow when they sat down to recor...

    Wanted Man - Johnny Cash may just be a legend, but he's never sounded better

    It was due in stores by July, but a lifetime of memories does not come easily to a man whose first hit came 41 years ago, when he was a member of a Sun Records roster that included Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and a boy named Elvis. So the world wil...

    Sound Check

    Poor power pop. Few genres in rock have been more painfully misunderstood or so unjustly ignored. Over the last three decades, power pop has cemented its endearing underachiever status with an odd combination of timeless songcraft and bad timing. Loc...

    Colonel Tom's Folly - Twenty years after Elvis's death, a guide to his greatest movie "hits" and misses

    To commemorate last week's 20th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, MGM Home Entertainment has released a video gift set containing all 31 of Elvis's movies in a guitar case. Maybe it should have packaged them in a coffin, instead, since the balanc...

    The real Skinny... The late Dwayne Goettel wasn't a founding member of Skinny Puppy, but he might as well have been. When Goettel joined the Vancouver band in 1986, his synth flourishes and inventive sampling broadened the band's dense creative canva...

    Plugged In

    Prodigy's number one debut notwithstanding, music industry watchers remain leery of electronica's potential for success -- as they should. So far, the craze is hardly shaping up as a commercial windfall to rival that of the early-'90s grunge explosio...

    Here Comes the Sun - Andre Sam-Sin, a.k.a. DJ Sun, spins a luminous sound

    As countries go, Suriname is tiny. Its smallness is particularly apparent when measured against the enormous size of Brazil to its south and the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean to its north. In this former Dutch colony, dense jungle drapes most of...

    Talking the Talk

    It takes the cojones of a seasoned matador to emerge from near obscurity and proclaim right off that you're the man. Reputation, after all, is usually something that's earned. No matter, contends Mark Morrison. The self-described R&B rebel phenom has...
