    Detroit Rock City At the "Get Hip!" showcase on June 28 at the Warsaw, the big draw was supposedly Scotland's wacky punk outfit the Rezillos, who haven't toured the U.S. before and are famous for that sweet (I guess) 1978 anthem "(My Baby Does) Go...

    In the Inknight Hour

    Northern State are three young women living in the flash and spirit of 1980, batting words and rhymes back and forth just like the Furious Five of yore, discovering themselves as we discover them, and like the pre-"Message" Five they rap with genuine...

    Tigers in a Spotlight

    Even when I was a child in short pants, Mumsie always impressed upon me the importance of practicing a cheerful and impersonal version of noblesse oblige whenever dealing with the common man. The workers who fixed our fences and who took care of our ...

    Effective but Defective - Tom Waits Wears His Mask Like a Pro

    Tom Waits, who has just become the first major artist to release two new albums simultaneously since Bruce Springsteen back in mesozoic 1992, is a rock professional for the new century. After 30 years on the "margins," he is perfectly positioned to t...

    Reality Soundbites

    I can faithfully, honestly say that hiphop is dead. Q-Tip Hiphop being counterculture, underground culture, that's sorta dead. It's all mainstream. It's just a bunch of pop music. Meshell Ndgeocello Anything that's not growing is dead. So we...

    Say It Isn't So - How Not to Broaden the Jazz Canvas

    The unceremonious booting of the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band from Carnegie Hall is old news, but hasn't been much addressed in or out of the jazz press, perhaps because George Wein, whose baby the CHJB was, capitulated without a fight to the hall's new e...

    Missouri Loves Company

    No, Nellyville isn't the gay ghetto in St. Louis, but it is an alternative utopia. When 23-year-old Cornell Haynes Jr., nicknamed Nelly, released his first LP, Country Grammar, in 2000, it sold over 10 million copies and yielded multiple hits, includ...

    Jolly Good Bozos

    I never cared for Quiet Riot's Slade mimicry. The band always sounded too stiff and technologically American for a snob like me. Not enough of an evening of shepherd's pie with Noddy and the rugby hooligans in them. Though that explains, perhaps, why...

    Endangered Feces - Blectum From Blechdom: They Came, They Saw, They Rectum

    Experimental electronic producers love to talk about incorporating mistakes and digital dysfunction into their music. Listen to their records, though, and it's hard to imagine anything less messy: Pristine and prissy precision rules, with every last ...

    He's Got More Channels The Museum of Television and Radio's five-part, three-month David Bowie retrospective, a veritable gift of sound + vision, pulls off an optical trick worthy of the great illusionist himself: nearly four decades spanned in ju...

    Here Comes a Regular

    Since rock-critic shmendriks tend to fixate on persona, and since I'm going to do exactly that for most of my space here, let me first take this opportunity to holler at Anthony Davisa/k/a Minneapolis hip-hop producer Ant. On his duo Atmosphere's Lu...

    Lifestyles of the Rhythm - Dance Music Accesses an Unseparatist Pop Sensibility

    Time was, people loved or ignored or scoffed at dance records the same way they bought or didn't buy other kinds of pop records. The music would come from a singer like Donna Summer, say, during disco's '70s commercial peak. Or, during the '80s, when...

    Basquing in Glory

    Fermin Muguruza enunciates the tongue-twisting chorus of his perky ska/Latin/pop/rock hybrid "Hitza Har Dezagun" so clearly that you'd think his Brigadistak Sound System was intended as an instructional record in his native Basque language. If you're...

    A party ain't a party until somebody starts demanding to know what fool went and invited Puffy anyway. In that case, gospel music must be the party to crash right about now. Sean Combs and Jermaine Dupri were presenters at this year's Stellar Awards ...

    Boogying to the Max - Naphtali, Gremo, and Tammen Send Noises Scurrying Through Space

    Max/MSP is a world of its own. It's a software program, or set of programs, that hundreds of composers are using, to the extent that you can say many of them are Max composers, the way Chopin was a piano composer or Nancarrow a player-piano composer....

    Crash Into Me

    You can't spell "dumb" without DMB, but simplicity alone cannot account for the collegiate domination of the Dave Matthews Band. Boston wiseacre Don Lennon thinks their hegemony is inevitable; his new album, Downtown, starts off with a deadpan accoun...

    Linus of Hollywood's Let Yourself Be Happy is not a "new" album, inasmuch as it came out over a year ago. However, Let Yourself Be Happy wasn't even new the day it was released, inasmuch as it's designed to sound like something that's inherently 30 y...
