    French Bands That Make Us Say "Oh L L!"

    ? Quality French rock and roll has sometimes been hard to come by, but when it hits, it slays. As far as modern French jams go, they really know how to do electro right, but in the '70s they made some of the best sleazy punk rock. Keep in mind these ...

    The Walking Dead - Texas City's Come See My Dead Person is very much alive.

    Texas City seems like an unlikely place for an eight-piece neo-folk, indie-rock, gypsy-influenced musical conglomerate to form. Even more unlikely is the name: Come See My Dead Person. First brought to our attention by George Banks, the Humble arc...

    The Hickoids, Dash Rip Rock

    The Hickoids have now been a pain in Austin's smug, image-conscious ass for 25 years, and show no signs of mellowing with age. Half Jason and the Scorchers cowpunks, half deranged Monty Python satirists and 100 percent don't give a fuck, Jeff Smith a...
