    Happy Thanksgiving: A Totally Different Kind of Turkey

    This is Ajda Pekkan, who, although she looks more like Suzanne Somers, is sort of like the Cher of Turkey. This song is called "Bambaska Biri" - the words may not be familiar, but Rocks Off thinks you might just recognize the tune. - Chris Gray...

    Cutout Bin: Stryken's First Strike

    There's the kind of album cover that is so obviously bad, it has to be a joke. Then there's the kind that's so much worse, it couldn't possibly be a joke. First Strike falls into the latter category. Stryken was a Christian metal band from Austin...

    A New Class of Rappers Finally Bucked Houston's Syrupy Stereotype This Year - It Is What It Is

    Two thousand five seems like eons ago. That's when Houston rap, if you'll remember, exploded into the nation's consciousness, caricaturizing the 713 as a candy-painted city of overindulgence and megalomania. Mind you, Houston was known to hip-hop ...

    Asylum Street Spankers

    Over a decade ago, this Austin-based group allegedly came together after far too many drinks in a Llano hotel, and remains best appreciated by those not easily offended. The Spankers' all-acoustic, Vaudevillian songs poke fun at everything they poss...
