    Get Lit: W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of William Axl Rose, by Mick Wall

    Of course, every jerk-ass celebrity eventually gets the biography he or she deserves, and Rose is no exception. Enter Brit hack journo Mick Wall and W.A.R. Let's just say that whenever a biographer feels the need to explicitly state how committed he...

    Lonesome Onry and Mean: Steve Earle at Verizon

    about the burning question of whether Bruce Springsteen's Dallas or Houston show was "better," I now find myself lost in the fallout of Friday's show by the southern Springsteen, Steve Earle. Everyone is a music critic. Immediately after the show, ...

    Going to the Chapel, Going to Jail

    This past year, two of my very best and oldest friends that I grew up with in Pittsburgh got married, one in Chicago and one in Austin. The Chicago wedding took place in a basement theater of the city's main public library. Vows were exchanged onsta...

    Why You Say Pong?

    About a decade ago, Ed Hall staged sweaty, savage shows marked by the Austin trio performing in body paint, bizarro film projections second only to the Butthole Surfers and suffocating psych-punk that made the Black Angels sound like Donovan. Along w...

    Flowers to Hide: Down the Stairs EP

    Since the Beatles, British rock bands have always held a certain mystique in the U.S. While it's no surprise that American bands keep churning out albums that mimic their counterparts from across the pond, it's puzzling how the lesser-known statesid...

    Dax Riggs

    Fat Possum Records' business model would give second thoughts to anyone who thinks the proverbial deal with the devil is as much a musty museum piece as Muddy Waters' hat or Elmore James's slide. As the crotchety old folks like R.L. Burnside, T-Mode...

    Ladytron, with Datarock

    Despite being one of the world's leading electropop stylists since they started in 1999, Ladytron don't have the typical cold and robotic sound you might expect. That's partly because the coed Liverpool quartet go to the trouble of using vintage ana...

    The Defenestration Unit

    It's hard to preview a show by a group of musicians like the frequently expanding and/or contracting sextet that calls itself The Defenestration Unit. Were this band assigned that task, they'd likely shrug the whole thing off as missing the point. ...

    Finding out that Nigeria had thriving psych-rock and funk scenes in the '70s is akin to discovering Yemen harbored a killer ice-hockey league in the Phil Esposito era. But several bands in the Lagos area were absorbing the Anglo-American funkadelic ...
