    More, More, More

    Kathleen Hanna just gets better and better. And no, not because she's gettin' "older" or newly, appropriately, "mature," having worked through the catharsis of Bikini Kill and her subsequent first solo project. To describe her as a diamond in the dia...

    Sweet Home Buttholesvill

    We drove to Pittsburgh the weekend before Halloween, to watch the leaves change and attend a three-day fest called the Haunted Hillbilly Hoedown. "No pretensions, no nice nice mellow deeply self-reflective stuff," organizer Stephanie Vargo promised i...

    You Go, Grrrl!

    "I hate you so much right now! I hate you so much right now! UNGGGGHH!" No way can you deny "Caught Out There," the new debut single by Kelis (pronounced Ka-LEES), who was last heard sing-songing on "Got Your Money" by Ol' Dirty Bastard (pronounced K...

    The 12 Lays Of Christmas

    If St. Nick cums down your chimney with an entourage of horny little helpers clutching chocolate dildos Friday night, you'd better believe he's Blowfly, the bigger and blacker Santa. All boys'-bathroom bawdiness ("Jingle Bell Cock," "Dick the Hoes," ...

    Roots in Outer Space

    The conceptualist avant-garde from the 1960s was the outer space of music, a music as far removed from inhabited regions of sonic thought as its creators could manage. It's hard to imagine that music as anybody's "roots," as though John Cage and his ...

    Cheap Gifts!

    Notice that the annual box roundup in the Times was almost all mixed-to-pan? That's why I seek out archival music that won't wear out your ears or your wallet. There are two three-CD sets below, one a concession to the box urge, but the rest are sing...

    Baubling Over Christmas fell early at Irving Plaza, with the fa-la-las and ba-da-bas (and do-we-dos) echoing 'round the hall. Cuddly Jim O'Rourke would make a fair Santa if he spoke up a bit: He's got a seemingly magical ability to be everywhere ...

    The Masters Have It - Ten to Live With While Waiting for Godot

    The arbitrariness of annual top-10s always becomes clearer the week after, when you look at other lists and think, damn, how did I forget that album and why haven't I even heard this other one? Then again, maybe the most honest list you can come up w...

    Seattle Pilots Move to Milwaukee

    It's tough being a Stone Temple Pilots fan. The constant drug arrests of singer Scott Weiland aren't the problem; every musician has drug problems. It just seems most people don't give STP their due. The band has zero rock-critic or postpunk/indie-r...

    New Abstract

    The greatest aesthetic lesson to learn from past masters like David Bowie and Madonna is the value of reinvention. I still recall my teenaged shock at the '86 Grammy Awards telecast, when award-presenting Prince emerged from the wings in a penguin t...

    Spitting in Fashion's Face

    Pitching heavy white-boy blues recordings must surely be the equivalent of choosing ditch-digging as a profession in 1999. It's horribly unfashionable to even feign an appreciation for a genre whose only audience is often thought to be little more th...

    Semi-Charmed Second Life

    For most of this decade, I put out a Top 40 fanzine called Radio On. (Yes, you're right: named in honor of Wall of Voodoo.) Each spring I'd compile a list of 50 or 60 current Billboard hits, and contributors would rate whatever they'd heard and write...

    Trans-Eara Express
