      Contemplating the Heavens with VHK's Atilla Grandpierre

      Decked out in robes and war paint, Atilla howls with profound fury and joy while whipping himself into a shamanistic frenzy. Comparatively speaking, his shamanic punk band VHK makes Gogol Bordello seem about as intense as a middle-school production of

      Live Skull, Dead Body

      Seeing as all of their songs on Spotify have a little "less than 1000 plays" symbol next to them, chances are you haven't listened to much Live Skull. They were the best of the New York no-wave psychos, and they've aged better than Hungarian dessert wine…

      Metal's Lost Survivalist Endeavors of the 1990s - Volume 1: Helloween

      It's common knowledge that several forms of metal weathered a serious beating at the hands of 90s alt-rock, with hair-metal forced into a well-deserved dirt-nap. The adaptive gestures executed by many of these bands constitutes a collective phenomenon I l…

      Vinyl and Ebay: A Fascinating Relationship (Volume Two)

      At some point last year, an acquaintance made me aware of RecordFlipper, a blog that aims to serve as an investment tip sheet for the release and future release of hyperlimited vinyl titles. I decided to interview one of the main flippers about it.

      The F***s to S***s Ratio

      Two give-a-shits strains the threshold of tolerability. Beyond two shits is technically mental illness. That's where you care so much about what you're doing, you can't even handle being a human being. This is where you kick somebody's teeth in for talkin…

      Here are the tracks which Mark Driscoll has been allowing to seep into his gel-soaked, faux-hawked-like-a-third-grader, hair, then down into his hard, NASA hard, skull.

      Straight White Guys, Just Stop It

      How about this, if you had to sing the song you're thinking of covering in front of a group of non-white people would you feel comfortable, or uncomfortable?

      Problematic Lyrics Within Ten Pop Songs

      Let us not forget that the junior high boys from ten years ago, the ones who commented at Suicide Girls forums and had a kind of sour smell to them, they, too, had a hard time swallowing Bright Eyes lyrics.

      The Theory of Rock Entropy

      Let's say for the sake of still taking, that the Theory of Rock Entropy is something you'd be interested in hearing about. In this case, possible questions you'd have include "What the fuck is wrong with you?"

      Dawn of the Dusk

      Interpol says they got a picture of a one year old child in a roasting pan like a piglet. Had an apple in his mouth and everything.

      Vinyl and Ebay: A Fascinating Relationship

      Ok, so why did you open and handle the record with your big, fluid-gorged sausage fingers? Why can I see the record in your picture? Because you needed to check the color? Check this color, hoss (helps to visualize an extended middle digit right now).

      Every Critic’s Dream

      Do you have a DJ night? You should have a DJ night. I would go to your DJ night just to hear all of the songs that you think are good because I bet I would think they're good too. I would either dance to the songs or quietly and reverently listen to them…

      Hey: how about when you're listening to rock music and the singer, instead of singing words, just lets out a real primal grunt? Isn't that the best? Yes, it is the best. What follows is a historical tour through some of Rock's Great Grunts.
