    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?

    Hyping its broadcast for days is an odd way to ban an objectionable video. For those who didnt see MTVs much ballyhooed recent onetime airing of What It Feels Like for a Girl, Madonnathe easily offended should stop heredrives aggressively in mu...

    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...

    Wildhearts Can Be Broken

    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...

    Used Cars

    Let me be the first to hail Bruce Springsteen's new album, Live in New York City, as a masterpiece. Granted, I haven't actually heard the thing, which is scheduled for release this week, or seen Springsteen's HBO special, which is scheduled to debut ...

    Reason to Believe

    Quietly, perhaps surprisingly, Bruce Springsteen has begun writing anthems again. A new song called "My City of Ruins" marks his best work since Born in the U.S.A., though it's not included on his new Live in New York City. For now, the track is avai...

    Takin' it to the Sheets

    What were once vices are now habits. The Doobie Brothers said that. (Well, they named an album that.) (No, I don't own it, Skunk.) I bet the Scottish boys in Arab Strap have spent a few nights pissing in strange alleys at four in the morning, perhaps...

    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...

    "My wish for 2001: The Voice goes easy on teenpop and bad metal coverage," Sasha Frere-Jones pleaded in his Pazz & Jop ballot. And ignore where the action is? Not a chance. Anyway, the previous Singles Again column concentrated on teenpop. So guess w...

    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....

    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...
