The Wrong Kind of Rebel Rock
In 1994, Primal Scream released fourth LP Give Out But Don’t Give Up. “Why does a Scottish band have a Confederate battle flag on its cover,” I wondered. Seemed as silly as the moment Dublin’s U2 discovered its Delta blues roots on The Joshua Tree. A deeper unease permeated Primal Scream using a symbol so drenched in a legacy of racial conflict and oppression.

SXSW Live Shot: Sick of It All

Just like the good old/bad old post-Reagan days that forged Sick of It All.

SXSW Live Shot: Japan Nite
Happy 20th anniversary, Japan Nite. You may no longer be the cool kid on SXSW’s pan-Asiatic block since that title likely goes to Thursday night’s Korean celebration. Your crowd skews a little older, and the sweatbox ambiance owed more to the unseasonal downpour boiling off than a super-crazy crowd.
