It's true, there's no denying the similarities between the broguey, sandpapery voice of Leatherface's Dickensian-named singer, Frankie Stubbs, and that of Motörhead's…

Rock 'n' roll is the emu oil of 2003. Its supply so far exceeds demand that record companies are starting to look like the befuddled ranchers of the mid-'90s, who were forced to free their stocks of giant flightless birds…

Romance is running down the sewers of our cities faster than you can say "Banana Republic." It won't make the news, at least not in so many words: Artists and Lovers Demand More Crime! It is, however, the real subtext…

You don't expect to get an actual conversation out of the Locust, perhaps the strangest band to ever sneak within striking distance of the average music consumer. If its phone manner is anything like its music, you figure there's going…

Are you one of those people who charge around town with a "Real Musicians Have Day Jobs" sticker on the back of their car? Good for you. Instead of slapping on "Pave the Planet" or "No Fat Chicks," you've opted…

The son of a preacher man, who made his first promotional appearances costumed as the Messiah and once dreamt of Marvin Gaye transmitting unheard music from beyond the grave, Terence Trent D'Arby is no stranger to the spiritual. Until legally…

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
