Texas Tropes
Is Don Graham Really Texas' Literary Curmudgeon?
Books Story  August 7, 1998, by Clay Smith
"...Graham opens a scholarly article in Giant Country that invokes Virgil, "Cotton and Classicism: George Sessions Perry's Farm Novel," which originally appeared in the Texas Studies Annual in 1994, by recollecting growing up on his family's cotton farm. "Although the machine made the work a little easier, the eternal verities of cotton farming remained: low prices; exhausting stoop labor under a broiling sun; threats from rain or drought; insects, both those that killed cotton and those that tormented its tenders; long days; dreams and broken dreams; and Johnson grass: anyone who has worked a cotton field in Texas is familiar with that most durable archenemy of man and cotton..."

Film Review  September 7, 2007, by Marrit Ingman
"...Writer/director Meadows announces himself with an assertive montage of smashed windows, street riots, and Thatcher playing a game of Missile Command, then turns the movie down to a thoughtful simmer for the semi-autobiographical story of a descent from mischievous schoolboy to junior skinhead. Friendless – and fatherless from the Falklands War – Shaun (Turgoose) meets a passel of rude boys under a bridge, and at first it’s all fun and games: walking in slow motion to rock-steady music, wearing silly hats and romping around like wild boys, smashing shit in the many abandoned, lawless places available in town..."

Say it Isn't So
Although the TV spots for Say It Isn't So practically demand that nonattentive viewers take note that the film is “from the makers of There's Something About Mary,” the Brothers...

Film Review  March 23, 2001, by Marc Savlov
"...2.” This kind of creative log-rolling is surely nothing new -- what would the tagline copywriters do were it not for the phrase “from the makers of”? Rogers, seated in the director's chair for the first time, has obviously studied hard at the Farrelly brothers' craft. He's served in one capacity or another on all four of their major films and their peculiar brand of high-brow/low-brow yuks has seeped into his cinematic blood..."

Golden Arm Symphony
Unraveling the budding symphonic genius of Graham Reynolds
Music Story  February 11, 2000, by Raoul Hernandez
"..."Could everyone please SHUT UP!" bellows Cruella De Vil's shrill, meaner sister from somewhere inside the crowd. The Tosca String Quartet -- Leigh Mahoney and Lara Hicks, violins, Ames Asbell, viola, and Sara Nelson, cello -- continue their subdued second number..."

Opening the Book on Roller Derby
Local photographer Kickstarting history of Texas Rollergirls
DAILY Arts  June 9, 2016, by Richard Whittaker
"...They define how to look at a sport. Like John Zimmerman defined the visual representation of basketball in the Sixties, or Neil Leifer revolutionized the imagery of boxing, Graham and her fellow Derby snappers had to define the visual language of the sport..."

Kathy McCarty presses Jon Dee Graham about the good and the bad old and new days
Music Story  October 21, 2005, by Kathy McCarty
"...KM: It was like this incredible flower bursting open or something!..."

House Appropriations Committee Gets Witchy?
Pro-life advocate calls lawmakers witches
DAILY News  March 6, 2013, by Jordan Smith
"...(Indeed, Dukes expressed extreme frustration, saying that moving funds around and limiting access to those funds makes it look as though lawmakers are addressing the lack of women's health care funding and access without actually accomplishing much. She didn't want to be "selling wolf cookies," leading anyone to believe that the state is actually "making gains" when it comes to providing low-income women with access to care, she said.)..."

Reckless & Romantic
Two bands joined at the lips – Sabrina Ellis
Music Story  February 15, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...Orville Neeley, brow furrowed, lips narrowed, and arms flexed as he beats sixteenth notes like pistons firing, looks pissed. To his left, Graham Low speed picks a sturdy bass line that finds leverage in the distorted guitar of Andy Bauer, who stands calmly at the edge of the mayhem in front of him..."

You Are Entering Harlan County
Justified creator Graham Yost exits Kentucky for the ATX Television Festival
Screens Story  June 4, 2015, by Raoul Hernandez

Graham Reyolds' 'Scanner' score
Screens Story  July 7, 2006, by Raoul Hernandez

New Music: The Well
ATX doom rockers lower the bucket and pull up ‘Mortal Bones’
DAILY Music  August 18, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...Incense lit and tarot cards laid out, we anxiously await the materialization of the Well’s debut full-length, Samsara. The soothsaying Austin threesome predicts a platter of Seventies-style, slow-and-low metal dropping in a month’s time..."

DVDanger: Beyond the Gates
Throwback horror resurrects the VHS board-game phenomenon
DAILY Screens  May 21, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...It seems peculiar, nay a massive oversight, that nobody has invented a specific term to describe the ever-growing library of modern horror films that deliberately evoke the mood, conventions, and tropes of Eighties independent low-budget horror. Case in point: VHS-inspired Beyond the Gates...."

Quin Galavis
Music Review  June 22, 2017, by Tim Stegall
"...And yet, once the electric folk of "No Return" jangles the Byrds on antidepressants, it's clear Galavis' third disc shakes a delightfully mixed bag. Full-on punk rock as reimagined by a Smiths fan ("Any Head"), a few attempts at following up the Velvet Underground's "Black Angel's Death Song" ("Paul's Phone Is Dead," "Bleed With Me"), and guest appearances from local luminaries ranging from A Giant Dog's Sabrina Ellis and Graham Low to avant percussion hero Thor Harris all rally the broad rockist ambitions of The Battery Line..."

Quin Galavis Track Premiere
Dark songwriter lets a little light in
DAILY Music  June 12, 2017, by Kevin Curtin
"...QG: It was kind of back to the older band: me, Graham Low, and Matt Hammer did the core tracking. Shelley McCann from Knife in the Water sang a bit..."

SXSW Music Live: Spoon Nite 1
ATX brand grooves like Prince
DAILY SXSW  March 15, 2017, by Tim Stegall
"...By the time Tuesday evening’s line to get into the Main – rebranded Eno’s through Thursday in honor of its former incarnation as Emo’s and Spoon drummer Jim Eno – allowed entry, Austin’s Bright Light Social Hour were neck-deep in the lysergic emanations of the Beatles’ Tibetan Book of the Dead rewrite, “Tomorrow Never Knows.”..."

Quin Galavis Turns Darkness Into His Magnum Opus
Obfuscating the narrative between fiction and lived experience on My Life in Steel and Concrete
Music Story  August 25, 2016, by Greg Beets
"...He formed the Dead Space with Hadden on guitar and Jenny Arthur on drums, then launched Nazi Gold in 2010 with Flesh Lights bassist Jeremy Steen and percussion guru Thor Harris, Steen's former high school art teacher. The following year, Galavis recorded Should Have Known You with Orville Neeley, garnering praise for its twang-tinged, lo-fi folk overtones...."

Record Review: Quin Galavis
My Life in Steel and Concrete (Super Secret)
Music Story  August 25, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Side B, the Long Walk of Mr. Morrow, peaks with the Bowie-esque "Terrific Failure," riding the bow of Graham Low's haunting cello..."

Glimmer Twins
Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen instigate A Giant Dog Pile
Music Story  May 5, 2016, by Tim Stegall
"...If you've attended a Giant Dog show, shaking in the grip of their theatrical punk rock, angelic curl-topped guitarist Andy Bauer and tightly wound bassist Graham Low headbanging around Ellis like the thuggish twin offspring of Angus Young, plus recent addition Danny Lion slamming drums at the rear, you've witnessed whirling dervish Ellis alternately splintering hearts and spraying the front rows – and herself – with beer and various bodily fluids...."

A Giant Dog Record Review
Pile (Merge)
Music Story  May 5, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...AGD "piles" the album's front end with an unblemished five-song sequence beginning with loathing love song "Creep" and ending with Thin Lizzy doo-wop recipe "& Rock & Roll." In betwixt resides melodic punk masterwork "Sleep When Dead," which may be the quintet's strongest single to date. Later, Pile turns a corner into aggressive with sociopath diary "I'll Come Crashing," hitting a wrecking ball with Ellis' vox, Graham Low's spastic bass scrubbing the muck, and erstwhile drummer Orville Bateman Neeley punching the beat like a drill press..."

Playback: OBN III's Tuned Up
Music Column  June 12, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...He's at his most commanding fronting the powerhouse crunch of his namesake band, OBN III's. Today, he stands as that gang's last original member, having swapped Graham Low, Andrew Cashen, and Jason Smith for bassist Michael Goodwin, lead guitarist Tom Triplett, and Marley Jones on drums..."
