Tucson Musicians Lauded in Uncut Magazine

STAFF PICK: Over in the UK and Europe, people like Tucson. More to the point, our music scene continues to hold a particular fascination. While we promise to pass out the kudos in our annual TAMMIES issue next spring, this one was too good to withhold: In the September issue of Britain's Uncut magazine, an article lauding the "Sounds of the New West" singles out Tucson in their A-Z listing of what's cool, citing our "amazing and incestuous array of musical talent which treats the Hotel Congress as its unofficial clubhouse." The article goes on to mention Green On Red, the Sidewinders, Rich Hopkins, Howe Gelb & Giant Sand, Rainer, 35 Summers and The Drakes. Of further significance is a separate entry for Calexico (also included on the magazine's free CD sampler), in which Joey Burns and John Convertino are likened to musical Cormac McCarthys and Sam Peckinpahs. "Few records this year have gripped the imagination as powerfully as Calexico's astonishing The Black Light," announces Uncut. We couldn't agree more.
