    Taster's Choice

    APPETIZER SAMPLERS ALWAYS serve as a lesson for first-timers: You take note about what to order next time, and you hide the rest in your napkin. The same goes for the local music compilations that have been taking up residence in my mailbox lately....

    Model Behavior - Clem Snide dolls up roots rock with the Ghost of Fashion

    I don't know much about shoes, but I know what I can't afford. And I can tell that the more uncomfortable they look, the more expensive said footwear is likely to be. A good number of the feet at a recent Clem Snide show were encased in pointy toes...

    Bad, Bad Boys, You Make Me Feel So Good

    Girl, choose your poison. There are the sweet math-rock dorks who want to calculate their chances of a date with you. There are the indie-rock arcade geeks who'd probably let you kick their butts at Street Fighter 2, just because they care. There a...

    Cult of Personality - A fond look back at Blue yster Cult's hits and misses

    I don't have wild memories about Blue yster Cult. I didn't see them play all decked out in mirror shades and leather pants, shooting lasers at the sweaty crowd. I haven't gotten wasted on Boone's Farm and come home with a tattoo of the hooked Kron...

    Musical Memento - Reading Radiohead's abstract Amnesiac backwards and forwards

    Which meant that the taste from not talking had been there long enough to feel kinda sweet. And I'd gotten used to the peeling paint being the only sound I heard; it sounded natural, like cicadas. By this point the TV wasn't really audible, despite...
