    The Power to Deflower - A few dirty questions with the Fuse!

    Photo by Matt OttoIt seems that rock & roll is being "reinvented" on an hourly basis these days by every musician with access to a thrift-store guitar or subtalented sibling or spouse--or at least that's what we're being force-fed by the almighty ro...

    A la Verga con la Policia! - Cuauhtemocs police story

    Nothing to Hate - Sean Costello: lazy, talented, not smegma receptacle

    If there's one thing I bloody dog-fucking hate, it's pretty-boy-cracker-ass guitarists who look more like they should be appearing on Oz in lipstick and pigtails as Vern Schillinger's latest smegma receptacle than gigging at high-profile festivals a...

    OZMA THE DOUBBLE DONKEY DISC (KUNG FU) Ozma is more Weezer than any of those dime-a-dozen pretenders to the throne that Weezer sits upon; in fact, these days, Ozma is even more Weezer than the pop-rock crown-bearers themselves. They bring back m...
