    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...

    Book 'em - Separating the wheat from the chaff in this year's crop of rock-and-roll tomes

    Around this time of year, I like to take a while to assess the annual output of rock-and-roll reading, acknowledging the good, the bad, and the stuff that just leaves you wondering, "Who the fuck thought it was a good idea to publish this?" Here, the...

    Still prophesying - Russell Hobbs is born-again as a club owner

    Russell Hobbs laughs a little when he's told about a mural he allegedly painted a decade ago on the side of what is now the Curtain Club on Commerce Street. Yes, he remembers the mural, the one that simply had two words painted on it: "style," with a...

    Scene, heard - The Immaculates party like its 1999; Bicycle Thief moves On; Tripping Daisy/Centro-matic split; And much, much more

    The Immaculates will play their last show together on December 23 at the XPO Lounge, at which point the world will come to an end and the Exposition Park area will become a scorched mess of imploded buildings and paranoid looters trying to keep their...

    Across the Bar - New Year's evil

    New Year's evil Maybe it's just us, but it seems like very few people are ready to party like its 1999 one last time on New Year's Eve. After scanning the club listings, New Year's Eve just looks like another night -- the same lineup of bands at t...

    The forever frown - More than 30 years later, Smile remains the subject of so much mystery

    It only grows bigger the further away it moves; object in rear-view mirror may be smaller than it appears. After all, it was only one album, one small collection of songs -- many of which have been officially released over the years. Who's to say how...

    Dreck the halls - Why are most Christmas albums so bad?

    It's that time of year again, the season for eggnog, pine wreaths, ribbons and wrapping paper, and -- shudder -- Christmas albums. Every year, a blizzard of holiday records falls upon the record racks, most all of them filled with a certain spirit: t...

    Direct miss - Pleasant Grove takes its time, even when it doesn't want to

    Everything involving Pleasant Grove seems to take a long time. Take the band's songs, sweet and sour tunes that shuffle quietly along their way, burning so slowly that they appear to be standing still. "Nothing This Beautiful," one of the tracks on t...

    Out There - Luna

    Billy Joel

    Pink panthers - Is there such a thing as a local supergroup? Ask Pinkston.

    Calling Pinkston a new band is a bit of a misnomer, even though it hasn't yet been a year since the quartet's first show. Sure, that was Pinkston's first show together, but it wasn't each member's first ever -- not by a long shot. Pinkston is a band ...

    G. Love and Special Sauce

    Bands like G. Love and Special Sauce ain't so special now, as though they ever were. Love and the boys are just another blues-folk-rap trio, a combo too often heard in the form of mediocre white guys fumbling for grace, soul, and wit. It's a concept ...

    Wu-Tang forever? - U-God's solo album is only the latest in a series of Wu-Tang Clan misfires

    When the Wu-Tang Clan released its first single, 1993's "Protect Ya Neck," Notorious B.I.G. was still a chubby crack dealer and hip-hop was several years away from civil war. Everyone was high on The Chronic, which had been released the year before: ...
