    Dont Spare Me - Lucky Strikes cosmic bowling utopia

    Photo by Jessica CalkinsConsidering that my previous excursions to the Block at Orange included food poisoning from the now-fallen Falafel King and an eerie encounter with some much-too-smiley cult recruiters, it was with justifiable trepidation tha...

    Reconstructing Zappa - Don Preston and Project/Object raise Frank from the grave

    I've had little use for the Frank Zappa-themed tribute bands and side projects that began popping up even before Zappa died, concentrating as they largely did on his later oeuvre, such silliness as "Valley Girl," "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" and "Dis...

    Elliott Smith 1969-2003

    Singer/songwriter Elliott Smith was found dead in his Echo Park apartment Oct. 21. He was 34. News of Elliott Smith's death by a self-inflicted stab to the heart wasn't what you could call a shock, unless the shock came from how perfectly expressi...

    Pushing Kinda Sorta Hard - Sky Saxon & the Seeds live the myth

    If singer Sky Saxon had died young, the Seeds would have been the Doors. And if Jim Morrison had lived way too long, the Doors would be the Seeds: cool, but not cooled-off; mercifully unknown to denizens of frat houses and yuppie bars; and churning ...

    Don't Be Afraid to Boot - Revisiting college with the boys from Urban Outfitters U.

    It seemed appealing on the surface: big-name music act plays intimate club at dirt-cheap ticket price. But a bargain is rarely a bargain, and the trade-offs for everyone who turned out for this gig were abundant, particularly for those of us who pri...

    SYNONYM ROCK! - Greater California Somber Wurlitzer (Nine-song full-length CD)

    Long Beach's Greater California are so consistent in the production of indescribably wonderful aural soundscapes that we found ourselves grabbing for our thesaurus while listening to this, their second full-length. After a while, we came up with suc...

    Break up to Make Up - Gustavo Cerati owned Latin America, threw it away, then won it back

    The rock en espaol galaxy sputtered a collective gasp of disbelief in 1997 when Gustavo Cerati dissolved Soda Stereo. First an Argentine phenomenon, then the South American nation's finest non-soccer export, then-by the early '90s-one of the first ...

    Piss and Vinegar - String Zebrahead up, they still won't die

    The last time we checked in with Zebrahead, they were shooting a video for "Playmate of the Year," the first single from their same-titled second album, at no less than the Playboy Mansion. It was a big-moneyed Playmate-festooned production. Even He...

    Big Old Goofy World - The art of the John Prine non-interview

    It displeases me greatly when a musician whom I admire refuses to grant an interview request. You can almost feel them grinning with smug satisfaction and self-importance from thousands of miles away, gloating over their status and control, as neute...
