• The Duchess Of York

    Bloody Wounds is a strange person, and she makes strange music that is so undefined by conventional genre, you end up finding yourself in it.

  • Lemmy

    I thought about trying to make the intro to this interview sound like an impartial journalist wrote it. But fuck that. Lemmy is my hero and I'm not going to try and hide it.

  • Exquisite Nun Corpse, aka Say Yes to Life

    A friend asked me to be in a band he was starting and I said, no. I'd never done it before, I was scared and intimidated. They got another girl to sing and the first time I saw them play I was crushed with jealousy.

  • The Good Ol' Days of Saint Vitus Are Back Tonight

    OK metal fans, you just got one treat and now here's another, as long as you are in New York tonight. In case you didn't already know, Saint Vitus is coming and they are playing their first Wino-fronted show in New York in...oh...22 years!

  • You Don't Have to Slam Junk to Wear Leather

  • Lisa Lisa And Cult Loeb

    We look to pop icons to find our opposite, to break us out of our identity shells. I listen to Iggy Stooge and am transformed into a tofu-and-heroin-driven insanity gymnast. In real life, I am none of those things. Through Iggy, for a few minutes or hours, my intellect is trumped…

  • The Frente! Backlash

    It wasn’t long ago that Angie Hart was a sixteen year-old regular at our favourite Fitzroy live-music venue, the Punters Club. That was just prior to one of the bar tenders asking her to join his band, Frente!, at which very moment they began making a bunch of memorable pop…

    I’m going to wager that a widely understood chronological line of demarcation is drawn in the Matador Records catalog, denoting an “After” good-times vibe and a “Before Slanted and Enchanted” soul-sucking vortex of financial terror. It seems s…

  • The Heart & Soul Of A Band Called Pavement

    Now, we all know lots of stuff about that dreamboat Stephen Malkmus. We get it. He’s a lyrical genius, a hugely underrated guitar player, and he’s real cute. We also know enough, for now, about Spiral Stairs, Malkmus’s partner in Pavement leadership. He too can
