    Must Be Some Way Out of Here

    R&B underachieverturnedjazz crooner Natalie Cole caused a stink a few years back when she resurrected her dead daddy's mellifluous voice for a "duet" that was part Hallmark card, part Rocky Horror. "Unforgettable," indeed. So when Danish DJ Funksta...

    Oh Bondage Up Yours!

    "What you are is missing a beat," Dave Matthews declares midway through Everyday. Timing, he's reminding us, is everything. Agreed: The usual late-winter lack of new releases means the critics are beating a drum for DMB's delivery of their give-props...

    More Fly With Honey

    Crazy Town look like someone's idea of a parody. What with their overabundance of tattoos and piercings, it's like MTV decided to do a show about a rap-metal band trying to make it big ('cept they would probably switch Crazy Town's black DJ for a bla...

    Lovers Not Fighters - You May Think Its Stupid; Rhett Miller Thinks Its Art

    In June of 1999, the Old 97's flogged the impossibly catchy Fight Songs by opening for Cake at a half-filled Roseland. Although I thought they needed a snazzier guitarist"a Junior Brown protg who knows something about Robert Quine," to be precise....

    Fear the Cheaper

    Over the Transom - Jazz Some Friends Asked Me to Tell You About

    The first time I met John Hammond he regaled me by playing reel-to-reel tapes of unissued Artie Shaw and Joe Turner. This was back in 1969, and much of his desk, the top of the radiator, and just about every other flat surface in his office were stac...

    Quite by Chants - England's Choral Tradition Still Nurtures That Nation's Boldest Composers

    LONDONMy long-held image of Europe is that of a continent endlessly spellbound by the Darmstadt composers who became famous during the 1960s. It may be that a longer sojourn here would have laid that impression to rest, but an early-season, three-we...

    The Dropkick Murphys are wild colonial boys bred and buttered in Boston, a seven-man band who've fleshed out their trad-punk stomp with bagpipes and tin whistle and mandolin and a bogload of Oi!-rish shtick. They're protgs of Rancid's Lars Frederik...

    There's a certain kind of audacious lyric that you have to earn to pull off: cringeworthy on its own, devastating in context. The Birthday Party's "I tied off/Fuckin' wings burst out my back" is one example, Prince's "Your face is jammin'/Your body's...
