"...the Mamas & the Papas. Cigarette alto (with a pitch-perfect squeak) Natalie Ribbons could tackle Nico and Mama Cass, and drummer Lauren Hess definitely Moe Tuckers that thump..."
"...With a cigarette dangling in his left hand, Michio Kurihara pushes back his jet-black hair, revealing a few slivers of gray. He looks older up close, exhausted yet hospitable...."
"...The Continental Club at 1:30am on a Sunday night, getting my boots set on fire by Shoeshine Charley. The former Henry's Bar & Grill, smelling like five kinds of cigarette smoke, with a Shiner Bock in one hand and a pickled egg in the other."..."
"...Moving between acoustic and raw electric, goofy and poignant, the music is honest Americana, and soulful. The opening title track sets a sparse, sunbaked mood, followed by the stomping, knee-slapping "Dead in the Water." "Non-Addictive Marijuana" comes across as the inverse of Merle Haggard's "Okie From Muskogee," while "One Cigarette Away" is a cheeky tribute to the redneck party lifestyle..."
"...One afternoon hanging out at some point Margaret and Tex said they were going to the convenience store and did anybody want anything. They were given money for at least one pack of cigarettes by someone..."
"...15, Karma Lounge, 9pm; Sat. 18, Velveeta Room, 1am Hard garage punk from Rio de Janeiro, with a cigarette in its teeth, bad intent on its mind, and seven albums under its belt...."
"...Brandishing a lollipop like a cigarette, 14-year-old Amy Winehouse belts out "Happy Birthday." It's unexpected, initially bursting from outside the camera frame, but once the lens found her it would refuse to let go...."
"...Inside, a tall button-tufted booth lines a wall and metal-studded leather chairs invite patrons to hang out in its dark company. The candlelit tables and craft cocktails suggest a sexy speakeasy, but a closer look reveals dive bar touches in the cigarette dispenser by the restrooms and a jukebox that rivals other Austin mainstays like Barfly’s and Shangri-La – even though live bands and DJs take stage in the back nearly every night of the week. [image-1]..."
"...The disc's aural dynamic is matched by a hair-flailing, foot-stomping, drumstick-twirling, guitar-crunching stage show. Bass and drums pound the Spanish Moon's irregular layout, guitar and keyboards swirling in the drifts of cigarette smoke and lifting the songs up into the hazy blackness and voodoo ether..."
"...8pm, the Hideout Fort Worth's Frye has one of those buttery voices that will have you craving milk fat and a cigarette in no time. This young woman decided at a very tender age (last year, at 20) to dedicate herself to the singular pursuit of her muse, and it's one helluva muse that gets producer John Congleton along for the ride..."
"...Strapped to their bike trailer, they had a Hello Kitty piñata that they had bought in a Wal-Mart with their last couple of bucks. Because they were out of money, they ended up staying at my house for way too long while they waited for a check from a Nana or something, constantly piling cigarette butts in one of the costume shells like an ashtray..."
"...Then, at the end of the scene, all three elevators opened together, and everyone inside them sang "Been a Long Day." During the run of the show, Bil Pfuderer had the cast start a competition to see which elevator could outdo the others with crazy poses and extra costume pieces or whatever. Joe York, who was in the production, knew that Bil hated the musical Evita, so for the last performance, Joe got a long strapless white evening gown, a blond wig, and a cigarette-girl-type box on which he set some microphones..."
"...Three sculptures on porcelainlike soap trays sit along the first wall. One shelf holds tightly rolled advertisements within gel capsules; a few shelves hold cigarette packaging, gum, and its packaging reconstructed into a pack of cigarettes, a lighter, and sticks of gum; while the final shelf holds a faded dollar bill with a pile of pink eraser shavings on top..."
"...The exception proving the rule is Carolyn Mark. Shouldn't she be on Bloodshot? Kelly Hogan vocalizes on The Pros and Cons of Collaboration, but how is it possible to cut a roots disc called Just Married: An Album of Duets without a Jon Langford collaboration? Plus-one to Mark for the line, "I'm more in love with this cigarette than I'll ever be with you." Michael Bertin Relapse Records..."
"...Greg Ashley sits across the table smoking a cigarette...."
"..."Having no [smoking] problems today whatsoever," reported Stephanie Seeley, who was working the door, just before 9pm. She said the club set up outdoor butt receptacles in the front and back and that smokers coming in and out between cigarettes weren't creating any problems..."
"...Barry Goldwater, 1981, when asked what he thought of the Rev. Jerry Falwell's suggestion that all good Christians should be concerned about Sandra Day O'Connor's nomination to the Supreme CourtHeadlines In the special legislative session, the state Senate passed its version of a public school finance plan while the House prepared to vote on a revenue bill that would cut property taxes and replace them with sales taxes, cigarette taxes, and a more inclusive franchise tax..."
"...As the title suggests, Lowriders on the Storm is a mash-up of Wammo's many loves, the title cut referencing rock's canon without apology. Hot-leaded poetry and raunchy rawk are combined throughout with unique instrumentation, like cigarette-sized amplifiers and cellos driving Marshall stacks, both to great effect..."
"..."When he doesn't do his sidework, I can't say anything because he's putting out my record," Hunt says, "so I just do it myself." He's also accumulated a cache of good Day Job tales, such as the time a patient from St. David's Hospital, across I-35, walked into the restaurant, dressed in his hospital gown and carrying his IV stand, and asked if anyone had a cigarette...."
