    Economies of scale - Cake hopes that cutting a deal won't interfere with keeping it real

    What a difference a year makes. Last June 13, when Cake played the Galaxy Club, there were perhaps two dozen people in the audience--if you count each person who came and went and came back again twice. Local act UFOFU played an absolutely ragged...

    Can't see the forest - Tree-hugging compilation album takes on a Texas conglomerate

    Beercan boys - Pop punkers Pansy Division love sex, so they sing about it. A lot.

    "Let me tell you a Dallas story," says Jon Ginoli, lead singer and guitarist of the San Francisco-based trio Pansy Division. This follows a rather randy observation he called his "San Francisco story" that I promised not to print. "Right now, I'm dat...

    Another dead hero - The gospel according to Bill Hicks

    I was lucky enough to first see Bill Hicks in a comedy club in Austin in the early '80s; he was a fresh voice in a medium already going stale and self-indulgent. Nobody else so perfectly captured the rage that came with having a brain during the Reag...

    You got another thing comin' - Venal old fraud Pat Boone bellies up to the trough once more with an album of metal covers
