    Deeper Into the Vaults - Weird Nightmares and Other Forgotten Dreams

    Reissues usually get their due at year's end, when they come gift-wrapped in cloth or steel boxes with fancy prices and hyped-up art direction, but record companies stay alive and keep their distributors happy by recycling old records all year long. ...

    Love and Death

    Love's third album mystified both the band's ardent fans and the scene's founding rockwriters almost from the day it appeared in November 1967. On first listen, with its many glosses of strings and horns, Forever Changes seemed muted, safe, dangerous...

    Credo in Unum Tonum - Why Was Beyond Words Different From All Other New York Concerts?

    It's odd, isn't it, that we so easily identify a certain type of music as "spiritual." Spiritual music is slow, or at least slowly changing, yet vibrant in energy, with a lot of high register, mostly consonant though riddled with sustained, poignantl...

    Gossamer Wings of Poop

    And on the eighth day, God created Black Sabbath. And the Stooges, the MC5, Blue Cheer, Led Zeppelin, Keith Richard's teeth, and Leslie West's belly. And it was good. For the white devil had taken the black devil's devil music and made of it somethin...

    The Beats of Baja - Techno and Tex-Mex Push Their Love Over the Borderline

    Its just about 3 a.m. on a Sunday last month in Nortec City when a short, stocky, balding DJ-programmer named Bostich gets on stage in front of a dwindling crowd of post-ravers for his set of minimalist techno-meets-regional Mexican musica drum n...

    Video Kills the Video Star - MTV Used to Be Madonnas Playground. Why Did It Have to End?

    Work in Progress - Dissertations on the Percussive School

    The long fingers of pianist Vijay Iyer, who appeared with his quartet in the recent Jazz Gallery series, "Pianobility," look like tarantula legs as they scamper across the keys, arched high and slightly bent at the knuckles. In liner notes and promot...

    For a few years last century, the Wildhearts were the world's best rock 'n' roll band you never heard of. Though English, they could've tore off from the Sunset Stripall ratty 'dos, dodgy ink, soiled T's, and drainpipe jeans. The sticker on '93's Ea...

    Keep Your Glass Topped Up - Australian Rockers and Poppers Dont Get Up Themselves

    "I come from a land down under," Men at Work sang at the top of the U.S. charts in the early '80s. "Where beer does flow and men chunder." They came from a land 10,000 miles away and one day ahead, and promoted a quirky little stereotype for the worl...
