First off, let me say that I think Peter Margasak is the best writer in Section Three. Of course that's like saying that Northwestern has the best basketball team in Evanston.

My problem is with the Spot Check column. If they are record reviews, run them as such. If they are concert previews then I would like info on the band's live shows, i.e., reviews from other cities, rumours, etc.

I have been to many shows by bands whose records did nothing for me but were great live. I have also gone to see many bands whose records I liked that suck live.

If a band sucks in concert rip them to your heart's content--after the show.
