    Fry Street, fair for everyone?

    We're pretty sure that Shannon Sutlief, Dallas Observer calendar editor and frequent contributor to the music section, didn't mean any harm when she wrote about Denton's annual Fry Street Fair in her year-end round-up of the shows and bands that made...

    Out There - Tim Finn

    Tim Finn Say It Is So (Sonny's Pop Records) Split Enz was kind of a mess before the younger Finn, Neil, joined up and dragged big brother's art-school band into pop land. The elder Finn, Tim, had up to that point driven New Zealand's most ...

    Take these records, please - Or: Yes, it was as bad as you think

    Making a list of the worst records of the 1990s takes just as much effort as compiling a concise countdown of the best records of this past decade, maybe more. Sometimes, a few slip through the cracks, such as on Jim DeRogatis' run-down of the most i...

    Sweet dreams - Amy Crenshaw isn't playing anyone's Patsy anymore

    Last March, the Dallas Observer published a list of rules ("The rules of rock," March 17, 1999), a guide that specified more than 100 things local musicians should and shouldn't do. Among them were tips such as "Getting a tattoo is like sewing platfo...

    Scene, heard - Two Ohm Hops to it ... eventually; Last Beat signs ... Vibrolux?

    As with most things concerning indie labels, especially local ones, it's best not to believe something until you see it. There are always more trip wires to navigate when you don't have a major label's deep pockets to rely on. And that's what's happe...

    Tell me when it's over - The world might not be coming to an end, but maybe it should be

    The weak in rock

    All I can remember of last year's personal top 10 was the inclusion of an acoustic Prince CD tacked on to the mail-order-only Crystal Ball. Smelled like hard-up then, reeks of it now -- haven't listened to the damned thing since December 22, 1998, an...

    Rees, in bits and pieces

    The show-me slate - DeRogatis' Top 10 Reasons for Living in 1999

    Lists, lists, lists; why do these freakin' rock critics love their lists so much? Well, for one thing, they're a way to keep track of an ever-rushing torrent of music -- a vine to hang on to for dear life as the rapids sweep us over the falls. This p...

    Home groans - Will this year's best local records survive the millennium?

    In these pages last year, Robert Wilonsky wrote, "I can't remember a year when so many local bands released so many albums that I'll play well into next year and beyond." And, at the time, I agreed with him wholeheartedly. Looking at the 20 albums we...
