Exorcist: The Beginning
Help us, Lucifer. This prequel is cursed.

Film Review  August 27, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Starring: Stellan Skarsgård, James D'Arcy, Izabella Scorupco and Remy Sweeney. If you’re like me, then you’ve probably been saying to yourself, "Gosh, where on earth can I find a horror movie that features dead maggot babies and poorly executed demon dogs now that Lucio Fulci has vanished beyond one of the seven doors of death?" To your immense relief, perhaps, even I’m not like me these days and so director Renny Harlin’s abysmal take on the once and future king of Catholic horror shows comes not as a welcome return to past gories of Linda Blair and her horny, Beelzebubian pals but as a limply over-the-top exercise in bad taste that even a young Peter Jackson might have found ridiculous..."

"...They're raising money to record their third LP, tentatively titled Pile. The album's been written for about a year, says vocalist Sabrina Ellis, but recording it wasn't a priority until last month, when Detroit garage legend Mick Collins of the Gories lauded the new material after they performed..."

"...With Springsteen, he figures, it's a matter of finding the right amount of guts and not becoming a caricature. Vegas' hoot night, also featuring tributes to Cheap Trick, Billy Squire, the Beach Boys, and the Gories, will be Walker's last local performance for a spell as he's moving to (wait for it) New Jersey. Half Notes..."

Saturday ... Anyone still standing?
Music Column  March 14, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Next week, our big city neighbors to the south, San Antonio, host the second annual Maverick Music Festival, which draws a significant amount of its bookings from artists routed to the area for SXSW, including Phantogram, Washed Out, SZA, the Black Angels, and Piñata Protest. The lineup, which was expanded to two days this year, also features the Psychedelic Furs, Twin Shadow, Run the Jewels, the Joy Formidable, Roky Erickson, Candlebox, and the Gories..."

Can't Stop The Bleeding
Music Story  March 15, 2013, by Austin Powell
"...At Can't Stop the Bleeding, a loose 12XU showcase expertly curated by resident Matador Records co-founder Gerard Cosloy, that honor fell to Unholy Two. The Columbus, Ohio, quartet rekindled the Scientists' feral blues and the torrid lo-fi appeal of the Gories, only with three guitars and a powerhouse drummer bashing out broken jazz beats..."

Music Story  February 25, 2011
"...This one-off collaboration with Mick Collins of Motor City minimalists the Gories, future Hex Dispenser Alex Cuervo, and Sugar Shack's Stephanie Paige Friedman is best remembered for its sidelong interpretation of Sun Ra's "Space Is the Place." Essential listening: The Getdown Imperative (In the Red)..."

The Dirtbombs
Music Review  January 28, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...The Dirtbombs excel at paying homage. Mick Collins' Motor City five memorialized the protest-soul movement with 2001's Ultraglide in Black, unearthed Death years before Drag City Records on a tour-only split 7-inch, and latest LP, Party Store, tackles Detroit disco of the late 1980s and 1990s, an era more often associated with Collins' garage-blues minimalists, the Gories..."

Fun Fun Fun Fest kicks up dust at Waterloo Park while Lyle Lovett closes down Studio 6A
Music Column  November 12, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...Though some two-day passes were still available, Saturday produced FFFF's first single-day sell-out for promoters Transmission Entertainment, thanks in no small part to Bad Religion's doomsday rapture and the psychedelic bliss of MGMT, which trumped the band's June touchdown at Stubb's. There was a perfect balance of old school and the new breed: the Gories' minimalist garage rock shadowing the black grease of Austin's Woven Bones, Os Mutantes' vintage tropical psychedelia reverberating through Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, and Detroit femme-C Invincible countering the novelty appeal of man, myth, "Ruler" Slick Rick with speed-lectures of crime and punishment..."

Pulling back the (iron) curtain on Fun Fun Fun Fest and the Flying Balalaika Brothers in time for the 40th anniversary of the Armadillo World Headquarters
Music Column  August 6, 2010, by Austin Powell
"..."I hate to use a bad cliché," reflects Mohawk proprietor and Transmission Entertainment's James Moody regarding the lineup for the 2010 Fun Fun Fun Fest, which is expanding to include a third night, Nov. 5-7, at Waterloo Park, "but this is the go big or go home year." That much is evident even at a peripheral glance: Devo, MGMT, Bad Religion, the Dirty Projectors, Gwar, Os Mutantes, the Vandals, Cap'n Jazz, Mastodon, High on Fire, the Hold Steady, Jean Grae, Deerhunter, Municipal Waste, Dwarves, and the reunited Polvo, as well as the previously announced Suicidal Tendencies, the Gories, and Slick Rick, who will be performing his The Great Adventures Of..."

Room 710 goes out with a bang as roundball ruckus takes over Red River, an all-American night at the ballpark, and more confirmations for the 2009 Fun Fun Fun Fest
Music Column  August 7, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...Detroit's missing link between the proto-punk political fury of the MC5 and the Gories' steamrolling garage-soul, Death is confirmed to appear at the 2009 Fun Fun Fun Fest, Nov. 7-8, in Waterloo Park..."

"...Along with the previously announced headliner, the Jesus Lizard, expect to see the King Khan & BBQ Show, Atlas Sound, and Broadcast. Not that booker Graham Williams is in need of suggestions, but how about a make-up show from Flipper or possibly routing the Gories, Feelies, or Monkeywrench this way?..."
