    Redd Kross

    NEUROTICA (RE-ISSUE) FIVE FOOT TWO RECORDS Fifteen years after its initial release, Redd Kross' Neurotica still stands the sugar-coated test of time. With its ultra-catchy hooks and pop-rock prowl, this was the McDonald brothers--Jeff and Steve--...

    Tegan and Sara

    IF IT WAS YOU VAPOR RECORDS While it's tempting to agree with the masses and proclaim "Canadian music blows," we simply cannot. We are unabashedly, madly in love with Maple-leafed musicianship. It comes as no surprise, then, that we are unable ...

    Big Fish, Little Pond - The Blue Whales try to stay afloat in OC

    Enshrined somewhere in the snotty I-wuz-there-and-you-wuzn't! annals of Orange County rock is the beautiful corpse of Film Star, an eccentric--sometimes ethereal, sometimes hard-rockin'--band that almost scratched their way to national attention in ...

    Incendiary? Exactly

    Photo by James BunoanIntrospective vocalist/guitarist Dan Sena used to be a hopeless romantic, but that was back when he was playing in the vaguely emo-sounding Give Until Gone, and fuck that, you know? These days, he rocks out in the more aggressiv...

    Blissed-fully Clean - Stryper cum parousia apologia (rock on!)

    When janitor James Hampton died in 1964, he might have slipped unnoticed into history--except someone decided to take a look inside his garage. There, unknown to anyone, Hampton had spent the previous 14 years constructing a titanic work of Christia...

    DJ Soluz

    Photo by James BunoanMaggie Gutierrez (nee Guaico), a.k.a. DJ Soluz, is her own person, damn it, and what better way to stick it to a family of musicians (older bro plays in Breakestra, older sis played in Relish) than to eschew the stringed things ...

    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...

    Even Manson Liked the Beatles - The Shakes power pop for the paranoid

    Photo by Gary LeonardThe world thinks the Shakes are harmless--casual, possibly non-English speaking listeners will peg them as a proudly scruffy 1960s garage-pop revival band that weaves a little punk bite into '60s jingle jangle (Nick Lowe's "So I...

    2002: Another Year With Nothing to Do - The kids are all screwed when all-ages venues die out

    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...

    Fear of a Hip-Hop Planet - The Dailies bite the hype

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