    Not Exactly Straight Punk

    Joe "Queer" King doesn't think it's weird for a 37-year-old man to perform songs with titles like "Ursula Finally Has Tits." King -- songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist for New Hampshire's the Queers -- is simply another foul-mouthed punk rocker look...

    Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound

    Hank Williams was a drunk, a mean drunk who died at age 29 in the back seat of a Cadillac. He was a semiliterate plagiarist, a whoremonger, a brawler, and an egomaniac. He was a stingy manager of top-flight musicians and a notoriously unreliable empl...

    Diva Variety

    In the spectrum of British female pop phenoms, Shirley Bassey has legs. She has endured the icy rigors of record industry bandwagoning, color barriers, fleeting trends, and fickle fans. Like fellow Brit Dusty Springfield, who rode the hit parade w...

    Toasters of the Town

    In the beginning, there was No Doubt. Or maybe it was Sublime. And didn't I hear something about the Mighty Mighty Bosstones putting out an album before 1997's Let's Face It? Thus runs the garbled ska gospel according to many of the new fans att...

    Forever Young

    In the booklet for Biograph, his 1985 career anthology, Bob Dylan mused on the differences between his rapturously received 1974 "comeback" tour and the contentious series of shows he had given eight years earlier. On the surface, these two tours ...

    Call It Korncore

    Ask a musician what his band sounds like and if not short, such as "blues," or "rock and roll," the answer will likely be a reflection of unclassifiable originality, maybe goosed by familiar antecedents. In other words, you'll get some blather aki...

    The Breath of the Blues

    The harmonica is a curious instrument. Palm-size and usually made without moving parts, it looks so simple, like a toy. Mastering one should require no more than inhaling, exhaling, and fluttering a finger or two. But the innocuous little things have...

    Exhibitionist Tendencies
