Rhett Miller of the Old 97's talks to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

"Even though the Old 97's never did what Elektra would've liked us to do, we got to make a lot of records on a major label that spent millions of dollars," he said. "Now, that's unheard of. We were the last wave of that kind of system and promotion. I could complain that they didn't get us, but in the end they were a decent home and a lot of people there treated us very well."

LA Weekly interviews Natsuo Kirino, author of the novel Grotesque.

L.A. WEEKLY: You began your career writing bodice-rippers and young-adult novels. Why?

NATSUO KIRINO: I started writing juvenile novels around 1985. I never really thought of it as a career, but more as a way to make a living. I did this for seven to eight years. After a while, my writing started to be recognized. One of my books, Rain Falling on My Face, earned me the 39th Edogawa Ranpo prize. It’s a very prestigious literary prize in Japan, mostly for mysteries and thrillers. After that point, I decided that I had enough credibility to make the change to start writing things that I enjoyed more, but were still entertaining.
