Kill Your Idols

This is my last issue at The Cluster, meaning that my long and rambling column is finally at its end. All three of my readers must be disappointed and heartbroken. And so am I.

Kill Your Idols: 'Chronically' amazing

Over time, it seems to have evolved into an episodic treatise ...

Kill Your Idols: Like, whatever, man

A couple issues back, I talked about Hüsker Dü’s 1986 album New Day Rising and, more importantly, its status as a landmark record that went on the influence alternative rock for years to come. And now I’d like to go on to explain to both of my readers exactly what sort of influence SST records ...
