    Shock My Monkey

    High concept, or maybe just high, posi-fatalist goth-trance "darkwave" outfit VNV Nation's mooning would probably seem cheesy even to the preppie meatheads who frequent Webster Hall. Formed in London, temporarily relocated to Toronto, and most popula...

    Sophisticate's Choice

    Electric Wizard, Grand Magus, Bad Wizardso many metal magicians, you almost can't tell which is which. Bad Wizard's the one with the strangest press, a blurb from The New Yorker linking them fondly to Molly Hatchet. It's hard to know what's more unb...

    Beef Not Bacon

    You don't need to be a Five-Percenter to suss that pork has no place in hip-hop. How pleased, to give one example, was Ice Cube when "mama cooked a breakfast with no hog" in "Today Was a Good Day"? DJ Quik's contribution to hip-hop's nostalgic, fleet...

    Christmas Gilt - A Bounty of Chestnuts and Gift Boxes

    The annual profusion of Christmas albums suggests a bottomless appetite for the same dozen or 15 songs done in every conceivable fashion, and a hapless record industry is eager to oblige. When in doubt, shake up the backlist, develop a seasonal pun, ...

    A friend inherited several dozen copies of the Sugababes' first album. She just called the distributor one day, and found out they were going to be landfilled. The fate of yet another pop record in 2002 is hardly a damning indictment of our times, I ...

    Two Boots - Stiff Old Bands Get Down Like That

    One of the most uncanny effects of so-called mash-up bootlegs is the way already existing rhythm tracks by bands who've never seemed particularly swinging (XTC, Metallica) can be suddenly loosened up, utterly transformed by adding even marginally fun...

    Like Reich On Vodka - A Generation of Russians Embraces Post-Minimalism

    By coincidence I arrived in Moscow the day the Nord-Ost theater siege began. I found a population distracted and depressed, but not too traumatized to share musical enthusiasms. I hadn't heard a peep of Russian music in decadesonly the occasional Es...

    Guess What, America, We Love You

    Having already chart-ruled 21 countries and gone pan-European No. 1, "Aserej" will be compared relentlessly to the macarena as it's angled for the Anglo market. But the real musical forebears of Las Ketchup, three daughters of Spanish flamenco star ...
