At present, there are few if any critics who will pan Queen, and the respect shown to the band is justified. At a time in history when rock was very interested in bombast (see Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and Alice Cooper – to name only the absolute top of the rock food chain at the time), Queen exemplified the word; it wasn't because of their enormous stage show (they never had one), it was because they...

Tell the same story often enough, and eventually one of two things will happen: either it'll start to sound new and fresh again or it's going to be a complete bore. It might present itself as boring for the obvious reason that you've heard the chronicle of events so often you could recite it by rote; the song and story remain the same, and the enjoyment you may get from it comes from the comfort of hearing a familiar and...

It's absolutely bizarre that The Darkness are back. It's even more bizarre to be a fan, actually. I wonder sometimes why I bother with a band that seems to be so much more about style than substance. The truth is, The Darkness are more than just style. Style is just icing on the cake of their umlaut-peppered metal axe-wielding.  My friend Kitty Kowalski (from Kowalskis fame, of course) once put it beautifully, "With a band that's just so much fun...

It's hard to think of a more influential individual in the Southern Ontario (that's south of Toronto) music scene than Steve Stumble. Since first appearing as a member of The Sick Boys in the mid-Nineties, Stumble has established himself as a fixture in the local punk rock community there; he founded Stumble Records in 1998 (which has since played home to a stable of great punk and rockabilly bands including Knucklehead, The Matadors, The Mahones and more) established and continues...

“The genesis of Hollows and Rounds came from my admiration of the baroque pop of the late sixties and seventies,” says Chris McDuffie of Whitejacket.  While the former keyboardist for Elephant 6 leaders The Apple in stereo claims the influence of many obscure artists from the era, he cheerfully admits the obvious. “The Beatles are my first love. These days, I feel like indie types demand a certain literary seriousness from songwriters, but Paul McCartney’s example reminds me that a...
