By Gary Flockhart OPERATING with the same DIY aesthetic embraced by the pioneers of the musical movement that came to be known as 'indie', Alex Cornish is making music on his own terms. A self-confessed "complete control freak", the Edinburgh musician's debut album was written, played, sung and produced in his bedroom - though the lack of major record label backing hasn't held it back any. "I released my bedroom-recorded debut album on my own label last October and it went down...

By STEPHEN SCHAEFER "WHAT WE DO IS SECRET" Rated: R. At Kendall Square Cinema Grade: B- The punk music scene of 1970s Los Angeles is venerated in "What We Do is Secret," a predictable if only rarely rousing biopic of one of the genre's seminal players: Germs' founder, lyricist and lead singer Darby Crash. Shane West ("ER"), with prosthetic bad teeth, has more charisma than the real Darby (ne Jan Paul Beahm), but he can't quite capture the psychosis of a Nietzsche-reading high school...

By Fiona Shepherd NEW YORK DOLLS, THE GARAGE, GLASGOW **** REMARKABLY, for a band who released a couple of albums 35 years ago, split up, watched various founding members succumb to drugs overdoses and terminal illnesses and are now down to only two original, somewhat wrinkled members, the New York Dolls have still got it - "it" being a classic low-slung, freewheeling rock'n'roll sound, a loveable reprobate attitude and an ebullient, charismatic stage presence. Their much-venerated...

By Jason Bracelin Punk rockers Rancid in town The dudes in Rancid are hard-nosed punk lifers, the kind of guys, who would bleed liquor and razor blades. Some dismiss them as a poor man's The Clash - as if that would be a bad thing - but Rancid has long possessed a hard-core-derived emphasis on velocity and urban grit that distinguishes them from The Clash. Preparing to drop their first new album in five years, the band is back on the road to keep punk rock's countenance twisted into...

By Gelu Sulugiuc NEW YORK (Reuters) - It has been more than 30 years since the formerly cross-dressing New York Dolls released an album. Now that their third record is finally about to hit stores, they're hoping to make some money at last. The Dolls imploded in a haze of drug addiction and mismanagement in 1975 after a brief but revered career that spawned countless punk and hair metal bands. Since then, four of the members died because of drug abuse or illness. Now, the two...
