Hell On Wheels, Vol. 2

Posted By on Wed, Oct 22, 2003 at 12:00 AM

Hick-hop wunderkid DJ P (Danny Phillips) has been confounding and amusing underground hip-hop heads with his unashamed mix CDs of hardcore rap and unlikely ’80s cuts for the past four years. On 1999’s Uneasy Listening Vol. 1, he and DJ Z-Trip mixed the Pharcyde’s “She Keeps On Passing Me...

The Fire Theft

Posted By on Wed, Oct 22, 2003 at 12:00 AM

Speaking of which, back in 1992 I was busy serving 5-to-10 in Woolworth for grand theft audio so I never got to smell what drummer William Goldsmith and singer Jeremy Enigk were cooking when their first band, Sunny Day Real Estate, showed up on the Seattle scene. But now...

The artful Dodge

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2003 at 12:00 AM

Few things compare to a night on the town with good friends. The New Dodge Bar in Hamtramck embodies this concept. A "partier's bar," the vibe at the New Dodge is simple: Have a ball. Owner, bartender, cook and run-arounder extraordinare, Kathy Gordon is a testament to the virtues...

The Eyes Of …

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2003 at 12:00 AM

Good evening. My fellow Americans, I come before you tonight not to bury Alice but to praise him. Now, before the nattering nabobs of negativism start slinging incendiary phrases like "conflict of interest" and "comically sniveling" around (Jeffrey Morgan penned the liner notes to Rhino’s Alice Cooper box set. —...

The Last Men On Earth

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2003 at 12:00 AM

Straight outta Toledo, Ohio, and currently taking LP numero five on the road, Five Horse Johnson comes signed, sealed, delivered and even stamped — as the CD booklet proudly announces — “boogie coalition approved.” Close contemporary kin might include Raging Slab (who coined the term “boogie coalition”), Nashville Pussy,...

So Damn Happy

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2003 at 12:00 AM

The best thing about being the Queen of Soul is that you can call on the most artistically endowed music makers on earth to help put your project together, as Franklin did on this, her 12th Arista album. The flip side to that is these heavyweights — producers, singers...

The next time some horn-rimmed, pasty-faced putz tries ta tell ya that rock ’n’ roll is deader than yesterday’s glass doorknob, just whip out this ragged wad of raw garage musical mayhem and smearcase it across his smug mug, ’cause this is one of the best lease breakers you’re likely...

Dirtnap Across The Northwest

Posted By on Wed, Oct 15, 2003 at 12:00 AM

Seattle has had a healthy underground/punk/garage/rock ’n’ roll scene for the last few years, but documentation of it has been sparse at best. Most of the worthy local garage labels like Regal Select and Bag Of Hammers were defunct, punk mainstay Empty records scaled back and moved, and SubPop...

The Wolf

Posted By on Wed, Oct 8, 2003 at 12:00 AM

There’s a fine line between stupid and clever — and hell-bent headbanger Andrew W.K. ain’t afraid to stampede back and forth across it with all the subtlety of a wolf in a chicken coop. Monitoring the 24-year-old Michigan-bred singer’s maturation from his 2001 major-label debut, I Get Wet, to...

Body Of Work: The Downchild Collection Vol. 2

Posted By on Wed, Oct 8, 2003 at 12:00 AM

In a culturally insecure country where just having your toe touch Canadian soil for even a split second automatically confers living-legend status on you by default, Mr. Donnie Walsh has been a true Canadian blues legend for decades. Which is why it was such a galling insult and absolute...
