Free Thinkers

Snapcase wants you to make up your own mind.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Things used to be heavy. Not the devil-behind-contacts heavy of Wes Borland and the Bizkit boys or the living-dead-comic-book heavy of Rob Zombie. More like the whoa-dude-that’s-deep kind of heavy, where, regardless of sonic overtones, there was...

Keep on Reaching

Aden may never be stars, but that isn’t stopping them.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Being an indie rocker isn’t that glamorous. There are no stadium tours, no throngs of groupies, no elaborate parties on the tour bus. It’s more like tiny clubs, a geeky guy in the corner who wants to tell you about his addiction to The Sims...

Drop Dead, Fred

Taproot pisses off Limp Bizkit’s Durst and lives to tell.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Taproot vocalist Stephen Richards doesn’t want to come off like some religious nut, or worse yet, like Creed’s Scott Stapp. But he’s not afraid to talk about his beliefs. While it’s not exactly cool to wear your faith as a badge...

The Enemy Within

Enemymine might be loud and heavy, but don’t call them aggro.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - Mike Kunka is pissed. Not in some sort of Fred Durst “I’m pissed cause it sells records” sort of way. Kunka is ticked off at circumstance. His band, Enemymine, is as loud and caustic as they come, the dual-bass-and-drums outfit pushing...

Bohemian Like Me

Dandy Warhols’ Courtney Taylor never wanted to be a counterculture icon, just a guy who plays rock and roll.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - You can call the Dandy Warhols what you want: art rockers, American bohemians, slackers of the highest degree. Singer Courtney Taylor couldn’t care less. He never wanted to be the poster boy for disenchanted grad students or be some sort of counterculture...

Dry Mouth Rhetoric

The Kottonmouth Kings are trying to change America one joint at a time.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - To look at the Kottonmouth Kings, you wouldn’t think they were a bunch of political extremists—urban-outfitted Orange County suburban b-boys all sporting more machismo than a young Marlon Brando. Sure, the group is pro-pot—natch, just...

Cry Like This

764-Hero leaves behind some of its emo roots with Weekend of Sounds.

By Jeff Inman
POSTED // Jun 11,2007 - John Atkins doesn’t want you to worry about him. He doesn’t want you to call the suicide hotline; he doesn’t need you to take away his bottles of aspirin. He’s just fine. Sure, when Atkins sings lines like, “I hate to bring...
