    Hide the Wah-Wah Pedals! - The Big Time Blues Fest is back

    The Big Time Blues Festival is an odd name for a gathering of wonderful lesser-known artists who play alongside name-brand acts. This year's fest includes the low-profile HOLMES BROTHERS, Harlemites by way of rural Virginia who mix heavy-duty gospel...

    Darla Records' first six years were free of big breakthroughs, which might've been a good thing. Hidden from the pop-culture media's wilting glare, the San Francisco-based label developed a chill-out techno sound sweeter than any codeine high. The l...

    Gary Downey, A/C Technician, Drummer for Naked Movie Star - What's humming through the skulls of Orange County?

    P>> Gasoline Addicts (self-titled CD). "This is hard-driving music that pumps you full of energy. It makes you want to get crazy, like burn cop cars and stuff (kidding!). They put on a great live show, too, but this CD is definitely one to get, if y...

    Shell Beat Your Brains Out - Dont call Joan Armatrading names

    Remember when Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car" came out back in 1988? Maybe you were in high school then. Maybe all the idiots in your high school only noticed that Chapman was kinda fat and had baby dreads. Maybe all they talked about was how she looked ...

    Brainwashed by Commies! - And Koko Taylors clam!

    Room to Groove - Joey DeFrancesco pumps his organ

    "Groove" and "swing" must be two of the most overused music terms ever. As undefinable as "cool," "hot" or "bitchen," whatever meanings they do have have been watered down with an umpteen number of wide applications. For the record, "groove" appli...

    The Politics of Skanking - The Plea for Peace Tour frees your mind

    With its bouncy rhythms and upbeat tempo, today's ska is often regarded as happy (if not escapist) party music sung by dweeby kids with dweeby kid concerns. What people forget, though, is that for a long time (and a long time ago), ska was activist ...

    Zed Records: RIP

    It'd be a clich to call Zed Records an institution, but it'd also be true. For 26 years, Michael Zampelli's Long Beach record shop has satiated the aural jones of many a music fan; it was one of the few places--if not the only place--where you coul...

    The Press Gang - Life as a Murder City Devil

    Seattle's Murder City Devils play unbelievably dark, swaggering, dirgey trash rock. Lead singer and lyricist Spencer Moody, with his thick glasses, unruly hair and conventional clothing, looks out of place among the other gritty, greasy, black-clad,...

    G'bye, Merrill - Mouring the loss of a rockabilly pioneer

    Writing a memorial for a man whose music meant something to me is a solemn task. It's positively excruciating when that man was also a close friend and a wholly wonderful person. San Diego's MERRILL MOORE passed away June 15 at age 76, following a s...

    De La Soul, Live at the BBQ - Big-Ass Music Weekend!

    De La Soul's first album was such a monumental, influential piece of art that the Long Island trio have spent the intervening 11 years dwelling in the long specter of its slam-bang-boom. 3 Feet High and Rising took urban hip-hop out to the suburbs. ...
