Music news, rumors, what you're listening to, how you're listening to it and whether it's all on the up-and-up.

Or the Violent Femmes' denial that Blister in the Sun has anything to do with pounding pud.

Or Howlin' Wolf's denial that "Backdoor Man" had anything to do with sex.

Wait--he never denied that.

Don't forget their ostensible frontman, Richard Hell.


Mea culpa. We must give Richard his due. One more of my own favorites: The Electric Prunes
