Plugging Into the Third Mind

The Third Mind closes with a tribute to Roky Erickson and the 13th Story Elevators' dark classic "Reverberation". This cover feels like the most straightforward track on the album, coming across like a particularly sprightly (and Edgy) U2 tune with a dash of hair metal thrown in the mix. On paper that might sound horrific but scraping away a bit of the original's psychedelia reveals "Reverberation" to be a terrific rock tune, and there's nothing wrong with that. That's the cool thing about The...

"Well, it's like rock and roll. You get it or you don't. You can't really explain it."

READER ADVISORY: Hey, I know this is a blog about books, and that I find too many excuses to write about punk rock. I know many don't care, and it might even make some uncomfortable. After all, nice things are nice, and nice is not one of the tenets of punk. But we're all getting old, and everyone, sooner or later, gets sucked into the riptide of nostalgia. A wave of recent books - including but not limited to memoirs from Chrissie Hynde, Richard Hell, Kim Gordon, John Lydon, and even an Iggy P...

The Best Books of the Year, for Those About to Rock

Since Keith Richards’s Life appeared in 2010 (and set the standard for rock books, by the way), a torrent of biographies, memoirs, and retrospectives have followed in its wake. 2016 was another banner year, with nine of the 20 titles in our Best of the Year picks in Humor & Entertainment concerning musicians or music, and 10 if you count Hamilton. Steven Hyden's Your Favorite Band Is Killing Me happens to be both humorous and entertaining. Always a funny and insightful commenter, Hyden (Grantla...

Wilco brings a generous touch of Schmilco to the Theatre at Ace

[See image gallery at] Jeff Tweedy and his Wilco cohorts stood Tuesday at the Theatre at the Ace Hotel on a stage looking like a detailed pop-up illustration of a canopy of trees in a kids book, extra-magical for being in this stunningly ornate Deco-era room, the musicians lost in — or escaping to — the woods. Well, childhood did figure prominently in the generous, 27-song set the band played in this first of three Ace nights, particularly the opening sequence of the three songs ...

Dave Alvin on Merle Haggard: a One of the giantsa

And, if there is anyone who continues to channel the talent and style of Haggard, it's Alvin, who, along with singer-songwriter Tom Russell, produced the 1994 record "Tulare Dust: A Songwriters' Tribute to Merle Haggard," featuring covers of Hag's tunes by such disciples as Peter Case, Joe Ely, Lucinda Williams and Billy Joe Shaver. "That one's probably my favorite one of his, but there are so many great ones," said Alvin by phone, moments before he was to board a flight to Europe with his broth...
