    On the Road, again - Two CDs devoted to Kerouac and Ferlinghetti give history a Beating

    Jim Sampas means well. He's a fan of literature and of music, particularly of the '50s variety: bop jazz and beat poets, mainly. So not surprisingly, much of his life revolves around making records with a literary bent. In 1997, he produced kicks joy...

    Ohm sweet Ohm - Whether they're onstage or in the studio improvising, the members of Ohm are guided by Voices

    There are seven songs on Voices, the second disc from Fort Worth's Ohm, but you won't ever hear the band play one of them. They probably couldn't even if they wanted to, mainly because they never thought of them as songs in the first place. And, for ...

    Scene, Heard - Old 97's grab The Deathray; Whammies for the Grammies; Drunken apologies notwithstanding

    The Deathray Davies will tour with the Old 97's during the first couple of weeks of February, hitting various clubs along the East Coast, including a stop at Irving Plaza in New York on February 11. We're guessing at least a few clubs will make the s...

    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...

    Apocalypse then - Altamont slammed the door on rock 'n' roll's dream of peace and love. An insider remembers.

    Thirty years ago -- on December 6, to be exact -- the Altamont Speedway, located about a half-hour away from Berkeley, near Livermore, on the way to Sacramento, was the site of a free concert presented by the Rolling Stones. The band's 1969 U.S. tour...

    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...

    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...

    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...
