    Culturcide: Gigs for an Imaginary Audience

    Back in the early and middle '80s, Culturcide bypassed then-prevalent synth-pop in favor of a form of electronic punk rock that evolved into industrial. This odds-and-sods collection offers 12 demos, live jams and unreleased tracks for the coroner's...

    No Age: Nouns

    Everybody has a different definition of "indie rock." For this American dude who smoked mad weed and aimlessly wandered some Midwestern campus in the mid-'90s, it will always be about shattered pop buried in temperamental noise and lo-fi amateurism....

    Marcia Ball: Peace, Love & BBQ

    A stalwart specialist in Gulf Coast blues/R&B/zydeco, Marcia Ball is already familiar to Texas audiences for her clear-toned vocals and pounding piano -- the imaginary musical daughter of Irma Thomas and Professor Longhair. And though she rarely dev...

    An evening with perennial Houston street hustlers Big Body Click - Square Business

    There's something strangely endearing about someone selling you a hand-packaged, homemade CD. It may seem like just another ho-hum "artist" looking for a way to make ends meet. When you really think about it, though, the artist is trying make somet...

    What's in a Name? - Sammy's at 2016, now with less Sammie

    The size of a man's hands and feet is related to the size of his, er, penis, if you catch our drift. (Wink.) Or so claims singer Faye Robinson. "If a man has fat hands and long ol' feet," bellows Robinson during a Saturday-night performance of th...

    Grand Theft Auto X: The Screwston Chronicles

    As many if not most of my literally dozens of longtime readers know, it's safe to say that I am not a fan of the vast bulk of Houston radio. Outside of KACC's unrepentant rock from the saltgrass prairie down in Alvin, occasional moments of clarity o...

    Smoke, Mirrors and Rainbows - Overcoming chronic Radiohead fatigue

    Dear Radiohead, It pains me to say this, but I'm afraid that, unlike several thousand of my fellow Houstonians, as well as people from all over Southeast and Central Texas, I won't be attending your concert this Saturday in The Woodlands. Let me ...

    Lelia Rodgers's Matagorda Island Discs

    This week's Matagorda Island Discs comes to us from Lelia Rodgers. Officially, she's the owner of Rudyard's Pub, but if America was a monarchy, she'd also be the Duchess of North Montrose. "My first album was a greatest hits compilation (Time Pie...

    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...

    Listen Up: K-Rino's "Holla at Me"

    Here's a new video from K-Rino. Great song and video. This guy is on a whole other level, and it's a shame he didn't get more shine in the big H-Town rap boom of 2005. Hell, after 20 years of steady, even expanding genius, I think they should put a s...

    The past: The New York Dolls, along with Iggy Pop and the Stooges and MC5, are credited as the godfathers of punk rock. The original line-up formed in 1971 and played its first show on Christmas Eve at a homeless shelter. The band broke up in 1975....

    New Video for Pale's "Glowing Black"

    Here's a new video for the song "Glowing Black" from local rockers Pale. The Edge-like chime of the guitars, Stephen Morris-esque high-hat hiss and four-on-the-floor kick-drum beat and cinematography are all very 1985, but that seems to be the hip re...
