    Backfield in Motion

    It's not too far-fetched, in retrospect, to call Ludacris this year's unofficial Super Bowl rapper. Not just because sports and sex rank dead even on the former scholastic athlete's pleasure scale (why else would he want to get it on at the 50-yard ...

    England's Oldest Hitmakers

    In the beginning the ideal pop tune was as simple and irreducible as an egg, and once it had entered your head you couldn't drive it out with any device short of frontal lobotomy. It had to be so in the early days of the entertainment industry (pop ...

    Back That Jass Up

    Two new records here by folks who could look through your entire collection and find absolutely nothing to listen to. Especially this Craig Ventresco fellow: Unless you happen to collect Edison cylinders or acoustically recorded 78s (you know, befor...

    Our Bodies, Our Salves

    Once upon a time, the sight of a punk girl moving in next door might have sparked a neighborhood watch for the barricades of cultural revolution. By today's grim revolt-into-product times, the lights are on next door, but the punk girl's not home; s...

    Riffs Are Not Dead

    I've seen the turntables and the damage done. Most juveniles this past holiday season, once they got over Dad not cashing in his pension to buy a PlayStation2 on eBay, probably set their sights on some wheels of steel wrapped in ribbon. I wasn't born...

    Where's Joe Buck?

    It's strange but not all that shocking to see the kingdoms of punk rock and kiddie television meet: Most of the greatest punks have been fueled by the adolescent instinct to be silly and annoying, so it's only natural that these two worlds should fin...

    Like, Zoiks!

    Me and the Devil Blues

    Life's been a bumpy ride for Everlast. By the time his Celtic working-class rap outfit House of Pain's million-selling 1992 debut spawned the major radio hit "Jump Around," Erik Schrody had already bounced from Ice-T's Rhyme Syndicate to solo flop t...

    Half a Life . . .

    . . . Or maybe it's "half alive," or "half a line," or "half a lie." It can be hard to tell what Stephen Malkmus is talking about. It's not just the low-fidelity mumbling. I've often found Pavement lyrics incommunicative, in a way that conveys nei...

    Mistaken Memories - Tony Conrad: One-Idea Composer or Late Bloomer?

    I ran into my old friend Al Niente at Tony Conrad's January 18 gig at Tonic. Conrad was droning away raspily on his violin, seeking out obscure overtones above thick drones emanating from a compact disc. Al mentioned that Conrad's music sounded much ...

    This Is Your Rock on Drugs

    Caspar Brtzmann is a good name to drop if you want to hump someone from the Knitting Factory crowd. Besides the primal eroticism associated with umlauts (Dick Chnney, baby!), and the fact that the Brtzmanns are German, which lends a certain black ...

    Absolutely Prefabulous

    In the year of boy bands, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and Survivor, it only made sense that we got a reality game show (ABC's Making the Band) that stitched together a vocal group called O-Town. (Unsurprisingly, in the networks' unfettered desire ...

    Here's the Melody - John Lewis Keeps on Evolving

    Melody is the rarest of musical talents and the most treasured, which is one reason only a handful of 19th-century composers continue to speak to us. Those that do are true melodists as opposed to generic ones: preachers who hear a kind of songfulnes...

    Songs of the Open Road - Richard Kassel Opens an Avenue to Harry Partch's Brain

    I attended "Musical Intersections: Toronto 2000," the millennial mega-musicology conference in that city a few weeks ago. Less exciting than skinny-dipping, I'll readily admit, but a big high point came when I glanced at a publisher's display copies ...
