    Drenched In Blog: Heartblog Hotel

    It's heartbreaking that we almost forget those times in the '50s when he was young people's main weapon against conformity and boredom because 20 years later he was the personification of a tawdry, bloated nation. Had he kicked earlier, he might have...

    Houston Rap: Kicked to the Curb?

    It hasn't exactly been a banner year anywhere in hip-hop nation, and Houston is no exception. The Class of 2005's lackluster sales have spurred every hip-hop rag and blog from here to Brooklyn to bust out its own unique variation on the evergreen "Ho...

    Chingo Bling vs. La Migra

    If you've been cruising the area around the South Loop and South Wayside Drive in the past couple of weeks, you've probably seen a billboard with the rather blunt slogan "They Can't Deport Us All." That's popular Houston rapper Chingo Bling's provoca...

    Open Letter to Messrs. Van Halen, E., and Roth., D.L.

    Dear Sirs, My friend and colleague Brett Koshkin just informed me your new tour schedule not only does not stop in Houston, but shuns Texas altogether. Up front, I must say this doesn't bother me in the least. I've never been more than a passive fa...

    Get Lit: Redemption Song: The Ballad of Joe Strummer, by Chris Salewicz

    After nearly a decade and a half of meandering, things were going exceedingly well for Strummer in late 2002. His new band the Mescaleros was playing sold-out shows, his wife was a much-needed grounding influence, and he watched with pride as many o...

    Houston's Very Best Songs Ever - ...otherwise known as the H-Town 20

    When we originally set about attempting to catalogue a list of Houston's top songs ever, we thought it was a stretch. How could there be a list of ten, much less 100, world-recognized songs from this relative backwater of a music city? In fact, the ...

    Gene Watson, In a Perfect World - CD Review

    Houstonian Gene Watson may not be a household name, but he's no stranger to the country charts; "Fourteen Carat Mind," his diary of losing a woman to her uptown tastes, hit No. 1 in 1982. Nashville hasn't forgotten him, as Vince Gill, Lee Ann Womack...

    Do Make Say Think - Catching up with Canadian instrumental wizards Do Make Say Think

    The moment music is rediscovered after being buried alive can be just as important as, and far more personal than, the moment it originally came to life. Post-rock has already suffered one of these untimely deaths, but a few bands -- Toronto's Do Ma...

    Anders Parker

    These days we're utterly awash in music from all sides -- terrestrial and satellite radio, iPods, MP3 blogs, TV ads, and on and on. This raging torrent of sound, this outrageous clatter of ambient hum, spans the quality spectrum from sublime to awfu...

    Jimmie's Place - Willie Nelson stories and shoeshines at Jimmie's

    Mono

    At first glance, Mono's stratospheric rock may seem like a dead ringer for any number of instrumental post-rock bands out there. But the Tokyo outfit delineates itself fairly well from its rivals, mainly the guitar dirges of Scotland's Mogwai and Ex...

    Clint Black

    Despite landing on both the best and worst lists of Houston songs elsewhere in this issue, Clint Black has mostly been a model of consistency. Years of toiling in area clubs resulted in the overnight success of 1989's Killin' Time and an armload of ...
