    Eat a Lot of Peaches

    There's a certain kind of audacious lyric that you have to earn to pull off: cringeworthy on its own, devastating in context. The Birthday Party's "I tied off/Fuckin' wings burst out my back" is one example, Prince's "Your face is jammin'/Your body's...

    Bella Donnas

    The Donnas have grown up. The Donnas rock. The Donnas are God. Well, maybe not the latter (a strictly Beatles entitlement), but you get the idea. And they've already lasted longer than most of the hairspray bands they love so much did in the '80s. In...

    The Soft Boys

    Whether couched in aesthete foppery, geek DIY-ism, or mousse-and-eyeliner genderfuck, synth pop has never been a particularly masculine preserve. Tim Benton, lead singer of London trio Baxendale, understands and even cherishes the genre's inescapabl...

    Fester and Carbuncle

    The beating down of insufficiently motivated rabble with standing waves of steely humming noise is one of the grand traditions of metal. As a long-term strategy, it's square with the benchmark formula of Manowar, i.e., create an ideology that infidel...

    Riffs Are Not Dead

    I've seen the turntables and the damage done. Most juveniles this past holiday season, once they got over Dad not cashing in his pension to buy a PlayStation2 on eBay, probably set their sights on some wheels of steel wrapped in ribbon. I wasn't born...

    Where's Joe Buck?

    It's strange but not all that shocking to see the kingdoms of punk rock and kiddie television meet: Most of the greatest punks have been fueled by the adolescent instinct to be silly and annoying, so it's only natural that these two worlds should fin...

    Backfield in Motion

    It's not too far-fetched, in retrospect, to call Ludacris this year's unofficial Super Bowl rapper. Not just because sports and sex rank dead even on the former scholastic athlete's pleasure scale (why else would he want to get it on at the 50-yard ...

    England's Oldest Hitmakers
