SUGARCULT - Three years ago Sugarcult was playing
anywhere and everywhere (and every style) just to get heard. Now they're
performing with the big guys and having a blast. Rusty Pipes and Tim Pagnotta
took a few minutes to talk about what they've been up to.
PORTERHOUSE - Joey Porter and Josh Cliburne are
two thirty-something guys out of Portland, Oregon, who somehow combine to front
an incredible funk band with an old-school sound. Shaun Dale asks the hows and
whys, and finds out what's next from these guys.
MONKEY POWER TRIO - One day every year, since 1995, they meet
to record some of the strangest music you'll ever hear. DIY to the point of using
ladders, cans and furnace parts as drums at one time. And yet they've developed a
following, they get airplay and they even got a Fox Sports commercial spot. DJ Johnson
takes you as close as it is safe to get to the five man trio known as the MPT.
CD & RECORD REVIEWS - Tons, baby, tons!
EVERYTHING ELSE IN REVIEW - Not as many tons.
MASS APPEAL MADNESS - Jason Thornberry's column
debuts with the question... is rock dead? Again?
CLOSET PHILOSOPHY - The Terrorist Pretzel and other
tales, by Rusty Pipes.
PIGSHIT - Gary Pig Gold's A Tale Of Two Micks.
COSMIK BLUES - Eric Steiner looks at the state of the
blues in '02.

addresses of the

hour of music that

Peter Tosh into Man Or Astro-Man into... well, you get the picture. It's a
we like to call Genre Whiplash. Or maybe you're in the mood for a trip into The
our mix of music of the ethereal variety. All you need is a RealAudio player.
Come on in.

writers have websites of their own. We have some links right here.
