Horse Sense

Gift Horse get down to the business of serious bluegrass.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It’s comical, the notion that a group of people, regardless of prior experience, could start a band at their whim. Surely much crappy music has sprung from the statement, “Let’s start a band”—or a less colorful variation...

Revolution No. 99

Like the rest, CKY aim to give rock back to the people. Unlike the rest, they can Rebuild.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Rock is back. Well, that’s what they’d have us believe, as record labels toss The Strokes, The Hives, The Vines and The White Stripes at us like promotional Frisbees at a football game. Sure, they have some good tunes, but are we really supposed...

No Wiggity

Rapper Griffin William Bonacci doesn’t look it, but he’s definitely a Dangerous Devil.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - To be perfectly honest, the guy sitting on my couch—a Salt Lake City rapper known as the Infamous Dangerous Devil—ain’t all that. Dangerous, that is. In fact, baby-faced 24-year-old Griffin William Bonacci is downright mellow; not a...

Industrial Strength

Joe Ashton uses pain and Phono to break it down and build it back up on Dementia.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Joe Ashton is big; 6-foot-5 and tortured. You don’t want to tell him that his band—well, his one-man musical endeavor—sucks. At least, not to his face. Good thing that’s not called for this evening. That is to say, Ashton’s...

Girls Gone Wild

Straight outta Boulder, Hemi Cuda have come to rock you and love you.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - It starts on the school bus. En route to or from school, or yet another field trip to Hogle Zoo, we boys stared out the window, scanning traffic for cool muscle cars on which to call dibs. At school, we’d traverse the playground, egos fortified...

Pikey Balls

Sherlock just want something to believe in, asking, Are We Still Cautious Artists?

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The interview is over, notebook closed, pen dropped. Interviewer and interviewee, their business done, shift into carefree chat mode. But the first exchange, an offhand comment about Adam Sherlock’s surname, how it lends itself better to a rock...

Beware of Band

Queens of the Stone Age play robot rock, not stoner rock. You’ve been warned.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Think CDs should come with warnings? How about bands? Don’t add alcohol. Keep away from naked chicks. Beware of band. Queens of the Stone Age—so named to piss off homophobic heshers—fits all, but none more snugly than the latter. As...

Sonic Business

Terrance D.H. launches Magstatic 2.0 with the new Country vs. City.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - The day job is integral to a musician’s existence—the “salad” in one’s “salad days” (the duration of which is indefinite). Of the local musicians featured in past installments of Scene & Heard, we’ve...

Twang Break

Jackpot finally hit their namesake with Shiny Things.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - There comes a time in everyone’s life when you’ve gotta quit screwin’ around. For Jackpot singer-guitarist-songwriter Rusty Miller, that time came shortly before he hit the big 3-0. The Sacramento-based twang-rockers (Miller, guitarist...

Bunny System

Feminist indie-popsters Chubby Bunny know their place and take no crap.

By Randy Harward
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - What is it with chick bands? They’re always singing about stupid girly stuff or how they got screwed over by some guy (which they probably deserved). And once scorned, they become ultra-angsty, man-hatin’ lesbian rockers carping about how...
