    Mike Ness, with Jesse Dayton

    Before Social Distortion became one of the most successful and longest-running American punk rock bands, personifying outlaw cool (with a surprising sentimental streak) for an entire generation of latter-day greasers, its eventual frontman Mike Ness...

    Roger Waters

    For a very brief moment on July 2, 2005, there at the Live 8 concert in London, it seemed that a miracle was unfolding -- and it had nothing to do with reducing Third World debt or the Assumption of Bono into Heaven. The four famously squabbling mem...

    Doyle Bramhall Sr.

    Innovation in today's blues scene is hard to come by, so it's small wonder that Doyle Bramhall's Is It News was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Contemporary Blues category. Bramhall's credentials are super-solid: They're part of that gang of blue...

    Willie Nelson: One Hell of a Ride

    At 100 songs clocking in just shy of five hours, Sony's latest dip into Willie Nelson's fathomless catalog, a four-CD behemoth timed to coincide with the release of Joe Nick Patoski's bio Willie Nelson: An Epic Life (see Racket, page 51) and the Red...

    The Deal sisters bring back the Breeders - Role Playing

    There's a Fly in My Soukous - Totally blending in at Club Kalahari

    Africans love to party. Now, typically we try to stay away from broad ethnic stereotypes -- except of course those that we personally know to be fact, like, Mexicans can run up to 60 miles per hour -- but when the statement comes from the general...

    Larry McMurtry and Willie Nelson in Houston

    In his 1968 essay collection In a Narrow Grave, Larry McMurtry wrote that Houston was "a city with great wealth, some beauty, great energy, and all sorts of youthful confidence; but withal, a city that has not as yet had the imagination to match its...

    Would Morrissey Approve

    Girl in a Coma is an all-female trio from San Antonio whose 2007 album Both Before I'm Gone is pleasingly versatile. "Their Cell" resembles the swirling pop of Cocteau Twins, while "Clumsy Sky" begins like a Cat Power lullaby before morphing into a...

    Kanye, Jay-Z, Mary J. and Rihanna Clamor for Diva Status

    As Ye-Day approaches, one question looms large: Can any arena contain Kanye West's massive ego? The 17,000-capacity Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, where hip-hop's favorite college dropout plays May 2, is hardly large enough for a performer of his...

    Get Lit: Instamatic Karma: Photographs of John Lennon, by May Pang

    In Beatles lore, a woman named May Pang is forever linked to the phrase "Lost Weekend." That 1973 "weekend," which lasted 18 months, is when John Lennon left Yoko Ono and, according to legend, wandered drunkenly in a haze until she took him back. (...

    The Lowrider Band - You might take War's name, but you can't take away their music

    While the name "Lowrider Band" may not be familiar, their set-list certainly is, as a sweet harmonica riff wafts through funky material like "The Cisco Kid," "All Day Music," Slippin' Into Darkness," "Why Can't We Be Friends?" and "Low Rider." It's ...

    Genghis Tron, with Converge, the Red Chord and Coliseum

    In addition to having possibly the coolest moniker ever conceived, Genghis Tron is blessed with a genuinely idiosyncratic electro-metal sound. Fusing the synth-driven sensibilities of electro with metal's brutal crunch has led most acts toward the l...
