    Sanity Claus: Separating Holiday-Music Gifts from Seasonal Disorders

    As previously threatened, I have devised my list of the best albums of 2007. It wasn't easy. I had to ignore some sales calls at work to make this. Sorry, Weld Tooling out of Tulsa, Daddy has to make his list. Ah, day jobs. Can't live with them, can'...

    Get Lit: Doo Wop: The Music, The Times, The Era, by "Cousin Brucie" Morrow with Rich Maloof

    to late 1950s. But as any PBS pledge-drive viewer will tell you, love for the music of groups like the Flamingos, Platters, Five Satins, Crests, Drifters, Spaniels and a host of acts with bird names (Cardinals, Ravens, Orioles, Falcons, Crows) is s...

    Ralphiewick Ralph: Damn It Feels Good To Have A Red Rider

    There's something magical about the Geto Boys' "Damn It Feels Good to be a Gangsta." The same could be said about A Christmas Story. Here's what happens when you put that chocolate in that peanut butter. - John Nova Lomax

    Scarface, M.A.D.E.

    "I write in tears and pray till it hurts," Houston rapper emeritus Scarface offers on the excellent "Who Do You Believe In" on the grim, mournful M.A.D.E., an album that's as much Old Testament as old school. Paranoia is pervasive, vengeance sweet a...

    The Art of Noise - Signal to Noise founder Pete Gershon turns his private collection into art

    Music writers tend to be pack rats, accumulating all sorts of memorabilia over the years: gig posters, flyers and handbills; promotional trinkets and T-shirts; autographed album covers. Pete Gershon is no different, except next week the editor and p...

    Kobain Lounge - Insert Nirvana joke here

    You should have to be at least six feet tall and weigh 195 pounds to be allowed to drive a Ford F-150. Having some facial hair wouldn't hurt either. That's the basis of a somewhat off-kilter but entertaining argument being waged by Louis Wilcott...

    Six Organs of Admittance

    Of all the artists associated with the freak-folk movement, Six Organs of Admittance's Ben Chasny sounds most like a "normal" folk musician, largely because he's a much better guitar player than most of his peers; he's more Jimmy Page than John Fahe...

    The Toasters

    For many people, ska died in the late '90s, around the time it graced the opening credits of the Daisy Fuentes-hosted incarnation of America's Funniest Home Videos. Fortunately, not everybody got the message. Arguably responsible for popularizing Tw...

    Foo Fighters have been many things to many people over their 14-year career. Everyone knows their history: beginning as Dave Grohl's studio project (1995's Foo Fighters), becoming modern rock's last bastion of hope (1997's The Colour and the Shape) ...

    Turtle Island Quartet

    San Francisco's Turtle Island Quartet looks like any other well-scrubbed chamber ensemble, with one crucial difference: Onstage, the group can improvise like seasoned Blue Note veterans. Since forming in 1985, TIQ -- violinist/founder David Balakri...

    Chuck Prophet

    Lately, former Green on Red guitar hero Chuck Prophet has been getting as many props for his producing talents as his own music. That's both good and bad. Prophet, lately working on a new album with Alejandro Escovedo, produced Kelly Willis's Transl...

    Secret Saturday Shows at The Shady Tavern - Rocking the afternoon away

    If it seems that Racket, whether penned by Chris Gray or me, has all too often been a depressing read, that's because lately there has been a mess of bad news to report. Last week's closure of the Proletariat was just the wilted cherry on top of a r...
