Who Are…Ruby Pins

By Tobi Vail, Contributor

Ruby Pins is the recording alias of Lillian Maring, best known as the drummer from Grass Widow. On her debut for Portland label M'lady's Records, she layers her voice and instruments with effects, creating a magical, psychedelic backdrop over which she unleashes personal angst and articulates her politics using humor and vivid, nuanced storytelling.

Icon: Wire

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

One way of describing Wire is to say that they've effectively been three different bands with (mostly) the same lineup: the blazing art-punk mutants of their 1976-80 incarnation, the monomaniacal electro-brainiacs of their 1985-91 renaissance, and the burly time-warping professors that reconvened in 2000 and are still recording now. Another way is to say that every record they've made has sounded like a hard-won consensus. Singer/guitarist Colin Newman, initially the band's voice of punk rock… more »
