    Are You Ready for the Homo Moccasins?

    It sounds like someone being violated in the back alley behind Ripcord. This was knocked out in a studio one drunken debauched night, and the results were soon shuffled onto the Internet. Both parties are mulling over a possible split release coverin...

    Lost Tuneage: Moby Grape

    Collectively, Moby Grape probably was one of the most talented bands to come out of San Francisco area during the golden age of hippiedom. Formed in 1966 by drummer Skip Spence and manager Matthew Katz (both of whom had just been fired from Jefferson...

    Arthur Yoria: 281

    Houston-Born TV-Theme Composer W.G. "Snuffy" Walden Enjoys His Wonder Years - Up to Snuff

    The stories pour out of W.G. "Snuffy" Walden like a broken water main. There's no point trying to structure an interview. Walden tells it his way, one memory triggering another, not so much talking about his huge success as one of Hollywood's most...

    Valentine's Night at Ernie's on Banks - Sports Lovers

    Few places are less romantic than a sports bar. If we had to guess, we'd say The Bog of Eternal Stench from Labyrinth is probably one. And that torture room in Hostel where the girl was locked in with her eye hanging out of her head -- she didn't app...

    Could Alternative Country Work at the Rodeo?

    RodeoHouston starts up again Tuesday, with a sure-to-be sold-out show by a group that makes critics cringe worse than about any other, megaplatinum Nashville country-pop lightweights Rascal Flatts. Yow. It does get better: Closing out three long wee...

    A Cursive Memory

    A Cursive Memory made huge waves last year with the video for its single "Everything," a clip centered around the idea that the L.A. band is a guerrilla-style "bandarazzi" squad. The result? Celebrity cameos, goofball humor, a ghetto blaster and ple...

    Gene Loves Jezebel

    Anyone bummed Echo & the Bunnymen is skipping Houston on their way to SXSW can officially cheer up. (Relatively, of course.) Gene Loves Jezebel may not have the same Coldplay-endorsed cachet as Ian McCulloch's Ocean Rain lads, but they'll do just fi...

    The Mighty Stef

    Born Stefan Murphy, Dublin-based The Mighty Stef is the latest in the long line of wayward Irish poet-rockers that stretches back to Thin Lizzy's Phil Lynott and the Pogues' Shane MacGowan. But don't take our word for it -- since 2006, Stef has been...

    Delta Spirit, Other Lives

    Over the past few years, Delta Spirit hasn't received quite as much attention as its jangly indie-pop peers (Cold War Kids, Tokyo Police Club). But that's not because the San Diego quintet lacks live chops or songwriting savvy. It could have more to...
