    Lonesome Onry and Mean: An Open Letter to Ed Shane, Publisher of Best In Texas

    In a rambling full-page editorial slyly couched in terms of his deceased mother's instruction "if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all," publisher Ed Shane (the Shane of Shane Media Services here in Houston) claimed I was "an insen...

    Pelican, with Thrice and Circa Survive

    In no rock subgenre is the guitar solo more integral than in metal, and sounds unheard, you could be forgiven for thinking that "instrumental metal" would describe songs that are merely extended solos. Pelican's music is more intricate than that, as...
