    Musico-Collateral Damage - Music, Interrupted by War, Changes

    The Vietnam War left subtle traces on American music, but did not interrupt it or change its direction. Desert Storm had even less impact. But the current conflict seems different. For one thing, the WTC disaster did cause a brief interruption in the...

    International Urchin

    Since rai music scrambled up from the slums and street markets of the Algerian port city Oran about 80 years ago, it has remained ineradicably urban, restless, acquisitive, and gregarious. As a lyric-heavy outlet for the female underclass, with slang...

    Slipknot's Iowa came out just about on the 10th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind. Like that record, it tore a noisy hole in the pop-narcotized charts, Soundscanning its first week at #3. The irony of a nine-piece act in jumpsuits and masks (from Io...

    Sex Bomb Baby Yeah

    When the Japanese realized their geese were well and truly cooked in the war in the Pacific half a century ago, they came up with the highly popular idea of the kamikaze pilot. However, within that cadre of certifiable fliers was an even smaller grou...

    Towers of Slog

    Record all the benefit singles you want, but sometimes the only honest response to crisis is to wallow in your own confusion. And Goths and Smiths aside, have any popular musicians made more of moping around than Leonard Cohen and New Order? Obvious...

    Opening Remarks at the CMJ Panel Discussion

    On September 12, everybody said the world would never be the same. Since then, many have tried to take that back. One movie mogul went so far as to explain to the Times that anything anyone said that week couldn't be taken literally, we were all too ...

    The people want to hear "Come Pick Me Up," but Ryan Adams is no one-minute man. He's a-make you love him, make you want him; he wants you to come prepared. At his marathon Irving Plaza show a few weeks back, demands for the ballad start up minutes af...

    Sweetness and Fight

    The Hissyfits have a feminine sweetness with voice inflections that aren't so sweet, multipart female vocals that play off each other but come together for beautiful harmonies, rough fuzz from the guitar. The music is full of reversals and contrasts....

    Twerk to Do
