  2. Probcause and Saba keep summer going with 'M.I.A.'Read the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Aug 26 | Chicago Reader

    Chicago rapper Probcause is known for rapping in speedy vocal loop-the-loops that can bring vibrancy to a droll beat. But it's a real pleasure to hear him do the opposite-vibe off an instrumental that bustles and burns- as he does on his latest single, "M.I.A." Producer Drew Mantia fuses liquid synth stabs, incandescent soul melodies, and bone-snapping percussion for a jubilant end-of-summer jam that Probcause takes to with ease.

  6. The Unauthorized Full House Story and Documentary Now! look for laughs in the detailsRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Aug 25 | Chicago Reader

    When I interviewed actress Jodie Sweetin last week she said she wasn't planning to watch Lifetime's The Unauthorized Full House Story , a TV movie about the pukey, popular late-80s/early-90s kids' shitcom she starred in.

    Tuesday Aug 25 | Chicago Reader

    The legal principle cui bono? matters because it clears the air: Who benefits? Yet American jurisprudence doesn't hold the opposite question in the same regard: Cui patitur? Who suffers?

    Last month I posted a track from the forgotten 80s Manchester band the Fates , a combo led by Una Baines-a founding member of both the Fall and Blue Orchids. It doesn't take much for the music of the Blue Orchids, which Baines and Bramah formed in 1979, to get lodged in my brain, so writing about and listening to the Fates naturally led me to pull out The Greatest Hit , the brilliant 1982 debut by Blue Orchids.
