Letters to the Editor: You sent them, we published them and sometimes we just made them up too.

Band Interviews

Interview with the sloppy, fun, unpretentious Weird Lovemakers! From Arizona!

KC MO's The Pillows probabaly aren't around anymore, but they sure where when Star Reporter C. Bales hung out with them back in the day.

Once upon a time, a naked faced Joey T. Germ interviewed Chicago's most notorious masked band The Goblins.

The should call them Rocket Propelled Greats! But they don't. Or maybe they do. How about RVA's RPG?

Mike Dixon reigned in Tennessee's Reigning Sound and wrote up this nice little article foot-noted article.

They may not be as cool as Eddie Blazonczyk and the Versatones, but they're Polkaholics, damin it!

The Peelers will strip the paint right off your walls. Find out more!

Ain't no party like a New Rob Robbies 'cause a NRR party don't stop!

It may not be obvious to you, but M.O.T.O., ladies and gentlemen

If you're going to lie somewhere, you might as well do it in states, like the band Lying in States.

They may not take away the sins of the world, but they have mercy on us. Lamb of God bring the metal.

Now hold on and read this interview with The Hold Steady.

Oakland's Fleshies will make your flesh crawl... with excitement!

From a town without mercy, it's Federation X.

If you don't laugh at Sam Henderson's comics you probably have bananas stuck in your eye sockets.

Since the 1970s, Gary Panter has spread his inimitable alternate-universe visions across the world as a true testament to the power of imagination. He's a really nice guy, too!

Gumpy mastermind Dan Clowes grudgingly agreed to answer some questions from our own Randy McQueen.

The gross-out king, Johnny Ryan shared some of his innermost thoughts and feeling with us.

Peter Bagge may have created HATE comics, but he certainly isn't hateful.

Parody interviews

There's the White Stripes and the Strokes and so we, of course, would interview the White Strokes.

Two of the dopest, illest, chillest white boyz in Rockford, IL:

White Bred & Honky MC #1

White Bred & Honky MC #2

No, you're thinking of Emenem. This is Enenen.

It had to happen at some point, but still, it's sad: The Death of Alternative Rock.

In 1998, we sent an ornery Travis Fickle to the Blaisdale Auditorium in Honolulu, Hawaii to cover Van Halen.

Travis Fickle almost gets a chance to see Pearl Jam

Restaurant Reviews

Nothing slides in or out quiet like a White Castle slider.

If you think a combination Taco Bell-KFC sounds like a good idea, you're half right.

Subway. Eat fresh?

It's only rock and roll, but I don't like it (Rock_and Roll McDonalds).

Regular McDonalds, kinda boring by comparison, but oh well. Burgers still suck.

Ok, now I get why they call it Hooters. That's funny!

The king is dead, long live the Burger King!
