    Rocks Off Is Interviewing This Guy Tomorrow

    That's right, I get to sit down tomorrow morning with Dan "freakin'" Aykroyd. I suppose he'll probably want to talk about the new House of Blues - he is one of the chain's founders - and the big Blues Brothers revue Saturday night, which is rumored...

    Tha Fucking Transmissions Are For the Children

    As you can well see from this photo (ain't they cute?) from last Saturday's Westheimer Block Party, where the boisterous local rap-rockers killed Avant Garden's outdoor stage. TFT vocalist Cornbredd, by the way, will be a contestant - repping the H...

    Rusted Shut: Hot Sex EP

    Doll Parts: Mydolls - Amid Noise and Smoke, legendary Houston post-punks reunite

    In the late 1980s, on the Galveston Bay side of the island, my radio receiver just barely picked up KPFT's Montrose-generated signal. Monday nights at 10 p.m., armed with two 90-minute tapes, I would hit "record" as soon as Dayglo Abortions kicked...

    Metallica's Death Magnetic - Fade to Plastic via Guitar Hero III

    I have not yet actually heard Metallica's totally badass new album, because I am way too busy living it, tearing off magnificent spider-fingered runs during the manic breakdown in "My Apocalypse" on my doofy-looking plastic guitar, which corresponds ...

    Man, young people today are morbid. Take British five-piece Bring Me the Horizon, whose new album is called Suicide Season and features images of a girl clasping a knot of internal organs and the band dripping blood from their frowning, sneering mou...
