    Eric Taylor: Hollywood Pocketknife

    There's a great story about Eric Taylor being intoxicated at a party a few years back when one of our local folkies was expounding ad infinitum about "being on the road." The guy went on and on until, according to my sources, Taylor finally had enou...

    Siouxsie and the Banshees, "Carcass": The lyrics of "Carcass" are vague. Their general implication is that, somewhere "in cold storage," a bloodthirsty man uses a cleaver to initiate "an impaled affair" of love. The killer, sings Siouxsie Sioux, is "...
