    Slip Inside This House: MP3s from the Clique, the Cicadelics and the Blox

    How massive was the influence of the Thirteenth Floor Elevators on Texas musicians back in the day? Big enough that many groups tried adding their own electric jug player, and every single one was a dud (at best). Other groups like the Clique settle...

    The Queers

    The Buzzcocks and Ramones may have laid the groundwork for pop-punk, but the Queers helped make sure the genre would never grow up. After 25 years, Joe Queer still pines for that girl in third period, still appreciates a good party and still sings a...
