    Metal? Christian? Gay? - Queer talk with Kings Xs Doug Pinnick

    Metal bands aren't very interesting. Black men fronting metal/punk bands? Seen it before--Bad Brains, Living Colour, Body Count. Christian black men in metal bands? There's that guy in POD, and . . . give us an hour, we'll find another. Gay Christia...

    Vanishing River Songs - Hot blondes like Lanternas NPR music

    It seemed like hopping a fast train to obscurity. In the early '90s, Henry Frayne took a break from the flagging fortunes of his rock group Moon Seven Times and started making tapes of his exotic solo guitar music. The tuneage avoided anything rem...

    No Generation Gap - Dead Moon, the music too tough to die

    A good set from Dead Moon is like a visit from your spirit guide: rock & roll tearing straight out of the long, dark, guitar/bass/drums as both folk way and primal howl (and either way, you get the feeling the Sasquatch--who's from the same Pacific ...

    Revolucion Grrrl Style Now! - Dominatrix make you hurt real bad

    Twang Bangers - Drag the Rivers country-punk ethos
