There have been some real winners when it comes to Band Name of the Week responses. But, let me tell you, last week's BNotW crownee, Portland's own electro-industrial outfit Digustitron, came back with one of my all-time faves. It started with an em...   More

Zach Boyle, "Face the Cold," unreleased


Zach Boyle first came to my attention as the guy responsible for Super XX Man's fluid, meandering guitar parts; in fact, there are certain Super XX Man tracks on which Boyle's guitar uncannily mimics the sound of a bubbling brook or effervescing soda, adding a dreamy twist to the band's earnest...   More

Band Name of the Week: Disgustitron


At long last, Band Name of the Week returns! My sincere apologies for the few-week hiatus (you missed our little BNotW column, didn't you? Well, at least "Don," of recent comments fame missed it). So, without further adieu, the rumored-to-have-AC/DC connections Busin...   More
