    Lee Hazlewood: Stranger in This Land - The renaissance cowboy cut a wide swath through the West, and inspired a generation of songwriters

    At 78, retired and living in Las Vegas, Lee Hazlewood was as deadpan and droll as ever, having recorded his farewell album fully aware of his impending demise. Renal cancer "doesn't lead into remission, it leads into death," he chuckled during one o...

    Drenched in Blog: Unknown Pleasures

    This looks to be one of the most straight-shooting rock movies in a long while. From what we have heard, the movie tells no half-truths, save for bassist Peter Hook being a smoker (he wasn't). Advance buzz has Control not sugarcoating anything about ...

    Homespun Electronic at Avant Garden

    I'm endeared to local musicians who crouch over gear-stacked milk crates on oriental carpets, or who kneel and stare intently at mixing consoles with high ideals. Thursday night, locals Mirm, and Translations played Avant Garden, turning the histo...

    Knock 'Em Dead

    Let's say you were a teenage boy in 1983, a metalhead. You plummet off your friends' roof while playing air guitar to "Shout at the Devil" and go into a deep coma a la Terry Schiavo. Today, you finally awaken. You turn on the news to see Motley Crue...

    How (Not) to Name Your Band - The Adjective Nouns

    Ya know, there are worse things in the world than naming your band something annoying -- things like killing people, or donning a diaper and chasing some astronaut cross-country or, I dunno, literally getting away with murder, only to years later bu...

    Tuesday's Gone - An unexpected adventure starts at Late Nite Pie

    Bruce Springsteen, Magic - CD Review

    Let's be honest: The critical hosannas hailing Magic as Bruce Springsteen's "Return to Rock" are a bit much; it's only been five years since The Rising. Magic is a solid, often transcendent, effort closer in quality to Darkness on the Edge of Town t...
