    Get Lit: Bill Bruford: The Autobiography by Bill Bruford

    In this erudite and opinionated autobiography, Bruford eschews a straight narrative in favor of "chapters" answering a series of questions including "Why Did You Leave Yes?" (which Bruford did, just as they were breaking big with Fragile and Close to...

    Flannel File: Primus

    As the title of this feature might suggest, '90s nostalgia is in full swing, and one of the orders of the day is reexamining the aesthetic reputation of bands we liked when we were teenagers but of whom we subsequently became embarrassed, swapping th...

    We Still Miss You, Joey Ramone

    The lead howler of the Ramones, born Jeffrey Hyman, would have been 58 Tuesday had he not succumbed to lymphoma in April 2001. Bandmates Dee Dee and Johnny Ramone followed Joey to the great CBGB's in the sky in 2002 and 2004, respectively. As you c...

    Things That Make Us Feel Old: Enter The Vaselines

    How this band managed to find its way to the bowels of our music collection we can only guess, but it's good to have them back. Still, as much as we love the Vaselines - the exuberant vocals, just off enough to sound earnest; the sly combo of naive...

    Merle Haggard

    Few outlaw country legends come as hard-assed and grizzled as Merle Haggard, and even fewer have actually lived the shady, hardscrabble life he has. From an early age, Haggard seemed drawn to crime, with his nefarious hobbies earning him vacations in...

    The Strange Boys

    Between the haphazard hooks, ramshackle rhythm section, mumbled vocals and lo-fi lust for vintage psych, Black Lips comparisons are unavoidable for Austin four-piece the Strange Boys. That doesn't mean there's not room for a few bands who plunder the...

    Fans of the 1990s funk-metal band Primus can't forget that famous Woodstock '94 footage where the band's resident bass god, Les Claypool, dexterously covered Metallica's "Master of Puppets," slapping out the guitar part on his signature Carl Thompson...

    J.J. Grey & Mofro

    Not one write-up about proud Floridians J.J. Grey and his backing band Mofro fails to mention how their music is a stew of Southern soul, swamp-rock and blues - including, apparently, this one. (Dammit!) Although that's a completely accurate descript...
