LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he Clash homed in on their concerns like sharpshooters, articulating much more clearly than the splenetic sputterings of latter-day hardcore bands or the confused vegan muddle cooked up by hippies with punk haircuts. A trio of articles from the Austin Chronicle re-examines the group and its work.

Knoxville's most storied band, road warriors of some 500 shows and three albums spanning over a decade, defunct now for the last seven years, together again at... the Pizza Kitchen?

Not only does Rhino's new disk feature tracks dedicated to the delights of barbecue, its liner notes are packed with enough information to make even the least experienced smoker sound like the pit-boss of the party.

Plus, comparing the latest Veruca Salt album with the new one from former frontwoman Nina Gordon, Nashville musicians who don't follow the mainstream, and more.
