Mike Watt – [Discography]
FEATURES

It has been said just often enough at this point that it could be taken as gospel: “Necessity is the mother of invention” but no one truly revels in that sentiment more than Mike Watt. First as the bass player for The Minutemen and then as the bassist in fIREHOSE, Watt helped to usher in a new approach to his instrument both in the context of punk rock and rock n’ roll in general.

Ween – [Discography]
FEATURES

In art, as is the case in life, it has been proven time and again that the population of intelligent people in the world fall into one of two groups: those that consider themselves to be smart and those that simply are.

Butthole Surfers – [Discography Review]
FEATURES

The single most important construct to the fabric of humanity and the condition of it is the establishment of motivation. ‘Motive’ is the cornerstone for crime, punishment, change, virtue, vice and myriad other human endeavours but, most importantly, defining motives and qualifying motivation means articulating cause for the purpose of allowing others to understand outcomes and effects.

Some artists dread the whole press “thing” and cough up information about as willingly as a potential third-strike suspect under the bright lights. Others babble on incessantly, leaving interviewers with hours of tape and mere seconds of usable content. Then there are the interviewees that make a writer’s job the easiest thing in the world. Explosions in the Sky drummer Chris Hrasky...

VOXTROT
FEATURES

ARTIST: Voxtrot The current gods of the EP are back DATE: 10-28-06 WRITER: Casey Lombardo Now Playing: “Trouble” from Your Biggest Fan In 2005, prior to being sucked into the same online buzz machine that launched a thousand Arctic Monkeys, Voxtrot was just another idiosyncratic indie pop band amid a sea of such bands in Austin, Texas.
