I call them "sister albums."  Albums which are opposite sides of the same coin, usually made in tandem with each other, like twins.  Vampire Cats and Blinded By Faggots are sister albums.  So are Your Arms Inside Me and Is It For Real?  There are oth...

Last week, I was kidnapped by members of the faculty of the Escuela de Cantautoristas de Pablo Smog in Veracruz, Mexico.  Some weird, dirty, unemployed-looking guys pointed their guitars in my face and shoved me in the back of a van and drove me into...

Wild Hearts Forever

You Will Miss Me When I Burn Out
