Texas Platters
Music Review  April 17, 1998
"...Best known as Eric Johnson's drum foil in Austin's legendary fusion band the Electromagnets, local skinbeater Billy Maddox is the man behind the Receiver Set, and if this solo album takes many of its cues from the 'magnets, as well as from an even more recent Johnson/Maddox collaboration, Alien Love Child, it probably comes as no surprise. Like both those bands, Receiver Set primarily transmits jazz-inflected prog-rock fusion, only this time it's Maddox who's doing all the playing; he wrote all 13 songs, produced, engineered, and sang on all of 'em, and he plays nearly all the music on the album (bass, drums, guitar and synth)..."

Record Reviews
Music Review  October 24, 1997
"...McKennitt's sixth full-length album, The Book of Secrets, is the Canadian singer's first new product since 1995, and yet all it takes is eight new songs and 54 minutes to completely enchant her myriad fans. Part of that is McKennitt's patient but unflinching devotion to perfecting every aspect of her sound from performance to production (not unlike Eric Johnson), but most of the appeal lies in her ethereal compositions and adaptations of classic poems layered with spare but lavish instrumentation..."

Dancing About Architecture
Music Column  October 10, 1997, by Ken Lieck
"...Fans of the Seventies band the Electromagnets (Eric Johnson, Steve Barber, Kyle Brock, and Bill Maddox) will be happy to note that according to their official website ( the band is currently in negotiations to re-release their sole, self-titled album on CD with additional live tracks. Sealed copies of the original record (total pressing 3,000) usually sell for upwards of $100, and Electromags sound man and Web keeper Park Street points out a very interesting fact: "The album took three days to record and one day to mix..."

"...His differences with APA and CLEAT aside, no one garnered more ink in Malone's newsletter than former Chief Watson, whom he named in a 1992 lawsuit against the city.

"..."My dad was like, 'Have you heard this song "Clay Pigeons"? It's on this album, and this guy Blaze Foley wrote it.'" At that point, Dickey said, "What I knew about Blaze was that he was friends with Townes, and that he was eccentric," and it was actually his dad who started doing research, burning tracks to CD, sending him stories and tall tales about the man known as the Duct Tape Messiah. "There were three different accounts of his death, which reminded me of Robert Johnson..."

UT Department of Theatre & Dance's Enron
This production of Lucy Prebbles' play smartly recounts and reframes the corporate beast's rise and fall
Arts Review  March 1, 2018, by T. Lynn Mikeska
"...The cast is as talented as it is large, and while every performance in Enron is worth seeing, Caroline Beagles' depiction of Andy Fastow as a wormy, wannabe big boy is as impressive as it is entertaining, as is Bella Medina's femme-fatale-on-steroids version of Claudia Roe. But first-year BFA student Kayla Johnson pulls off the biggest acting feat of the evening: Her version of Ken Lay is so charismatic and genuinely nice that you'll find yourself actually liking Ken Lay..."

"...The band skinning Delta blues specter Robert Johnson’s “Love in Vain” precedes extended closer “Sympathy for the Devil,” exorcised by African drummers. Paul McCartney exits over the credits afterward, though not before Jagger admits that the group’s forte is playing live, not recording, which history forgets because their sound was so blazingly elemental across decades of discs...."

Tuesday SXSW 2015 Showcases
Music Story  March 12, 2015
"...Sounds from Chile 8pm, Icenhauer's Though rightly known as a cesspit of spitting thrash and doom, Tuesday night Chile teases a softer side with two acts from the northern seaside city Valparaíso: dream-pop slackers Fotogramas, who provoke spirits in the Rainey Street haunt with December's No Me Despierten, and Lisergico frontwoman Jurel Sonico's would-be solo project Adelaida, which quickly mutated into a fearsome noise-rock power trio anticipating a sophomore LP. Leading the Santiago contingent, Constanza Espina and Soledad Puentes flash their collective alter-ego Marineros, summoning night terrors with November's "existentialist love pop" single "Cae la Noche." Meanwhile Matias Cena, the country's lovable rambler, plays Jack Johnson better than the beach bum himself on last April's even-keeled Casa Sin Fuego..."

The Last Meeting of the Knights of the White Magnolia
Different Stages captures the small-town feel in Preston Jones' Texas drama, but the play's age is showing
Arts Review  April 11, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...Its nine actors fit together, their short tempers and long memories rising from common ground, the same cramped patch of West Texas dirt. Director Bob Tolaro has drawn from them a shared past, and though the comic bits are sometimes a bit blunt, the dramatic moments are sharp, especially when driven by Skip Johnson's crusty Red, Tim Mateer's ever-thirsty Skip, Travis Dean's desperate L.D., or Donald Owen's alternately blustery and foggy Colonel...."

"...The music isn't exactly punk rawk; it's just the "F-words," three women in white sweat suits with bars spray-painted on them, playing electric guitar, drums, and bass.

Richard III / The Rivals
In its rotating repertory of 'Richard III' and 'The Rivals,' the Austin Shakespeare Festival shifts between polar extremes: violent tragedy and frothy romance
Arts Review  March 17, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...Playing Jack's obstinate pater, Dirk Van Allen is so fixed of mind and firm of foot, he's a veritable wall on stockinged legs. As Jack's pal Faulkland, Roberts is dressed all in black, emblematic of the character's ability to find a dark cloud around every silver lining; when he voices his anxieties about the true feelings of his true love (an unassailably modest Sarah Johnson), Roberts goes operatic, wailing arias of misery..."

The Best of Flicker Austin: Volume 2

Screens Review  May 13, 2005, by Shawn Badgley
"...Monster Robot #2" is, as you might imagine, bizarrely effective, while "Women," by Ryan (the lone female representative; meanwhile, there are three Scotts) and her husband, the musician Doug Ferguson, is a hyper-colored collage of everyone from colonial ladies to World War II replacement workers to Kathie Lee Gifford. Justin Johnson's "Count Back From Ten," featuring Justin Hayward and Ryan Kirkpatrick, is a black-and-white ode to Hitchcock, the Coen brothers, and, apparently, the videography of the Cars..."
