Music traverses through ages and develops as it goes, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad. Monday and Tuesday night in London was proof ...

Barb Wire Dolls — Live at the Camden Assembly

They shuffled onto stage at London’s Camden London Assembly (former Barfly) with an attitude that seemed rather apathetic if not lackadaisical. Running 15 minutes late — they did not say “Hello” to the public — but maybe that’s the way this gruff artistic grunge punk-rock outfit “BARB WIRE DOLLS” approach such things. They didn’t seem so much “Desperate” [the title ...

Live: An Evening With…John Garcia

John Garcia needs little to no introduction. From being one of the founder members responsible for pioneering the desert rock/stoner rock scene. The number of bands that he has fronted is hard to fathom, each as good as the next, be it Kyuss, Slo Burn, Unida, Vista Chino, etc. or even his solo material and thanks to this, he has ...
