Hitting the G-spot

Posted By on Wed, Jun 27, 2007 at 12:00 AM

"To appreciate the Gore Gore Girls' music," writes schlock-film mastermind Herschell Gordon Lewis in the sleeve notes to Get the Gore, "you have to have a streak of wildness, a fierce independence of spirit, and an absolute belief in the unusual, the strange, the unpredictable, the offbeat and even the...

Photo: Leni Sinclair Not to get all blowjobian but ... A few years back I was working on Metro Times story about the Rockets and its singer Dave Gilbert and I had the pleasure of meeting the band’s guitarist Jimmy McCarty. I’d read about this guy when I was...

Icky Sticky Thump!

Posted By on Wed, Jun 20, 2007 at 11:36 AM

Record of the year. Okay, it’s like 11 a.m. on Wednesday and the new issue of Metro Times is out. Already I’m fielding emails and calls about Nate Cavalieri’s review of the White Stripes Icky Thump. Some say Cavalieri nailed it, perfectly. Others say the dude couldn’t find his...

Well you're in your little room and you're working on something good but if it's really good you're gonna need a bigger room and when you're in the bigger room you might not know what to do you might have to think of how you got started in your little...

Hentch-Forth. Five

It's 2007, and with Jack White having signed off on his Motor City divorce (an acrimonious split, rumor has it, but court documents are sealed), it's cash-in time for those he left behind. That's the cynic's view, of course. Yet on this 14-song collection cut by Mike, Tim and John,...

A Moment of Silence for Schoolkid's

Posted By on Tue, Jun 19, 2007 at 4:01 PM

Are many of you idiots? You gotta be. I mean, why would any self-respecting music fan into (proper) music formats such as vinyl, CD, DVD-a, SACD, cassette, 8-track — that which isn't downloaded invisible and shitty-sounding — not support your local record store? Why, why, why, why? Why give your...

Queen of the Waxwings

Posted By on Wed, Jun 13, 2007 at 3:11 PM

So we get the new Queens of the Stone Age disc in the mail. Yeah, whatever. Anyway, we were blowing cigarette ashes off the band’s ever-so-major-label, Jason Odell-shot glossy and notice something that gets the stale Folgers spewing through our clinched lips and expanded nostrils. There, amidst the rock-appropriate...

Hookers and blow for everyone!

By our accounts this corpulent dude Ty Stone is a rather jolly fellow. We wish him the best. In fact, the downriver-bred Stone did extensive touring playing the big rooms with confederate flag-waver Kid Rock, showcasing certain aptitude for the rock ‘n’ roll-hillbilly ditty. The guy can craft and...

What we do is secret

Posted By on Wed, Jun 13, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Well, sorta. LA’s KROQ is spinning the shit out of their latest single “Forever Fades Away” — off this year’s lauded Music From Regions Beyond. But there ain’t much radio love for Tiger Army in old Detroit, tho. So what? Neck-inked dudes and punk-porn chicks are hipped to the...
