    WILCO - Summer Teeth (Reprise)

    The first year Uncle Tupelo was playing around St. Louis, when Jeff Tweedy was working at Euclid Records in the Central West End, I was stunned to see his "best of the year" list posted on the wall: At the top were Slovenly's glorious, skewed We Shoo...

    Turning Japanese

    Until recently, the designation "big in Japan" was, for all intents and purposes, a slap in the face to most pop/rock musicians. Now, with heavyweight trendsetting labels such as Matador and Grand Royal capitalizing on Japan's newfound, growing and s...

    Digger Friday, April 9; Creepy Crawl Amid a sea of mediocre pop-punk bands trying to cash in and ride the Green Day wave (which has already crested and receded into obscurity), Pennsylvania's Digger sticks to its roots rather than water down ...

    Here Comes the Summer - Jeff Tweedy used to be in a band called Uncle Tupelo. He's not anymore.

    It's no wonder Jeff Tweedy finds it hard to return to St. Louis. The city's not known for its legion of fancy Rock Stars -- and he'd probably cringe at the use of the term. But in St. Louis, he's a genuine Rock Star, and when one sprouts from around ...

    Days of Heaven

    If you tally up the St. Louis connections to this year's South by Southwest, held March 17-21 in Austin, Texas, the findings are somewhat grim: One St. Louis band performed. One Festus band performed. One transplanted-to-Atlanta East St. Louis trumpe...

    Deserving of Praise

    Kelly Willis offered just enough on her first three albums, released between 1989 and 1992 on MCA Records, to hint that she is a woman with a powerful and original musical perspective. She was signed by MCA Nashville head honcho Tony Brown, who allow...

    Banned on the Run - St. Louis saxophonist Greg Osby returns from New York to showcase and celebrate the past and future legends of Blue Note Records

    In his active career as a saxophonist, Greg Osby has been accused of watering down jazz with hip-hop rhythms and, by doing so, "spreading bacteria on bread." He's praised as one of the great alto soloists of the day, even as he's accused of using bea...
