    Best Albums of 2003! - 363 days before everybody else!

    AUGIE The year 2002 was a big, vicious circle for Augie. The Santa Ana-based emo trio put the recording life on hold in favor of seeking paying gigs to raise money for studio time. But big venues don't take kindly to demo-less acts, so Augie's 200...

    Joe Strummer - 1952-2002

    No one is supposed to die of a heart attack at 50. But more than the rest of us, Joe Strummer was not supposed to die of a heart attack at 50--though he did, apparently, on Dec. 22 in Somerset, England. In my mind, Strummer is eternally the lean, ...

    Steaming Malmsteen

    Pity poor Yngwie Malmsteen. The once-svelte-now-stout hair-farming metal-guitar god, who still thinks it's 1987 someplace (check out that photo!), worked himself up into a snit last week during a flight to Tokyo. According to a report on the music s...

    The Failure of (Almost) All Pop

    FM Knives Tropicana, Anaheim Saturday, Dec. 14 The Indigents couldn't play because someone was in jail; the Distraction couldn't play because of a family emergency; and CTW couldn't play because they didn't actually even show up. So that left the...

    Remembering a Fallen Friend With an Angels Voice - Stereolab vocalist/guitarist Mary Hansen, 1966-2002

    Mary Hansen loved touring in America--which is to say she loved American thrift stores, vintage shops, antique shops and used record stores; loved riding her bike around (and getting lost in) strange towns; loved the lanky indie boys swooning at her...
