    Drummers Need Not Apply - Brian Jay & the Barn Burners

    Brian Jay gave up playing in bands around Orange County for 15 years, but found he couldn't stay away. So you don't have a drummer? Right. Originally we got a guitar player and a bass player. We were still looking for a drummer and the three of ...

    Album Review - Chad VanGaalen, Skelliconnection (Sub Pop)

    The idea of downtown Canada being the new Seattle was kinda stupid at best, but if the Stills are allowed to have a second album, then I ask, "Why not Chad VanGaalen?" On "Flower Gardens" (the first and possibly best track on his new record), VanGaa...

    Standing Erect - Del tha Funky Homosapien

    It's funny. Most people have probably heard of Del tha Funky Homosapien before. While it's not exactly an easily forgettable name, they're never really sure where they've heard it before: Remember 1991's "Mistadobalina"? You know, "Oooh, oooh, Mis...

    Good White Boys - Johnny Rivers

    It's easy to dismiss Johnny Rivers as a harder-edged Pat Boone, a male Linda Ronstadt, a lost member of the Crew Cuts--a gabacho who covered the work of black boys and found fame and fortune. Rivers did it with Chuck Berry's "Memphis, Tennessee," th...

    Sad to say the new face of country is as bland and predictable as it has been for the past 20 years: country-fried pop music duded up in denim and diamonds. Add hosts Wynonna Judd and Cowboy Troy (of Big and Rich), and you've got the USA Network's a...
