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

    It's hard to find a Dominatrix album if you want one. We found ours burned onto a CD-R and bundled in a receipt from a fax machine, sunning itself on a lawn chair outside a petite dollhouse apartment, tracked down after a series of late-night secret...

    Twang Bangers - Drag the Rivers country-punk ethos

    Depending on how late it's getting and how many drinks have been chugged, certain names inevitably pop up when the conversation turns to Who Was the First Punk: Iggy Pop? No. Johnny Cash? No. Hank Williams? No. Lao Tzu? Wait--he was the first hippie...

    Un-Google-able - The Rattlesnakes put a foot in your arse

    Photo by Jeanne RiceMost everyone I talk to about the Rattlesnakes agrees they're one of the best bands in SoCal. They also agree they're one of the most A) weird, B) bitchy (actually, guitarist Candice Getten seems proud of that one) and C) sociall...

    Getting It Right - Bolcoms stupendous Songs

    Photo by Stan ShoukEven if William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience were less excellent than it mostly is, it would rank as a monument to rampant artistic ambitiousness and, for that matter, sheer artistic gall. The fact that last week'...

    THE DIVINE COMEDY/RICHARD SWIFT THE DETROIT BAR WEDNESDAY, JAN. 29 "He's beautiful!" "He's Irish!" "He has a child!" These were one woman's chaste and breathless descriptions of Neil Hannon, singer/songwriter for the Divine Comedy. And it was ...

    Sneaky Good

    TRESPASSERS WILLIAM DIFFERENT STARS (11-TRACK FULL-LENGTH) Pain is good, or at least it can be when shared by the likes of Trespassers William. The Costa Mesa art-rock band create ethereal, haunting tunes that, because of their shimmering beaut...

    Nothing to Prove - Ikey Owens and the sonic politics of race

    Photo by Jeanne RiceTouring with indie rock faves Mars Volta was a typical rock-star journey for Ikey Owens. There were rabid fans, criminally boring van trips and nights of keyboard banging with a band he loved. The crowd reactions were typical, to...

    Psychotic Reaction - Who are the Mystery Girls?

    Now is the time for Beethoven to get fucked. As a child prodigy, he was something of a fraud--his dad fudged his age by two years so he'd be more competitive against Mozart--and thus cast a shadow of suspicion over all god-gifted kids to follow, up ...

    Lift Every Voice and Sing - Mavis Staples, touched by God

    For people like me who consider themselves devoutly agnostic, for whom the prospect of pondering the Big Questions is about as appealing as consuming a steaming bowl of dog shit, true Christians are about as exotic and curious a breed as benevolent ...

    How Swede It Is - Five bands besides Laura Lee

    We've got nothing specifically against Division of Laura Lee (DOLL), the latest Swedish import to try to fill the Hives' already-too-tight Beatle boots--though when it comes to DOLL, we'll stick to New York or at least the Valley of. But there's a l...

    Sharp-Dressed Men - Shoe talk with Drunk Horse

    I hate ZZ Top. I hate them so much it hurts. I hate them so much that if I even think about that stupid sleeping-bag song, my eyes hurt and I want to throw up. Don't even get me started on "Legs." But Oakland's Drunk Horse, who happen to be my very ...

    Movies and Metal - The two worlds of Volumes Patrick Brink

    Five years is an eternity in a local band life span, long enough to break big, break up, or, in those ultrarare cases, get better. Take OC stoner rock outfit Volume (though if you're actually in a stoner rock band, you probably call it "heavy" rock....
