    Mouse Trap Replica

    Anthony Braxton's never been cool, but has always seemed mighty weird. There's the pipe-smoking, sweater-swaddled egghead persona, a nutty professor dispensing super-cerebral, impenetrably systematic post-Ornette/Stockhausen compositions with all but...

    Right to Work - Summer's Out of Reach

    When they spin the Beatles during my occasional confinement in Classic Rockville (actual songs during drivetime, dude), I think two things at the exact same time: "Jesus, I never need to hear this song again," and "Holy fuck, this is so much better t...

    The Art of Stopping - These Boots Were Made for Nothing

    Madonna's new single does something totally and unexpectedly greatit stops. Repeatedly. Four full stops, and countless gaps between phrases, beats, even words. A blistering zeitgeist-negation, hostile and uneasyas a single, a club track, a Bond the...

    Groovy Decay

    Punk-godfather/philosopher George Santayana once said that those who dis the past are doomed to get smacked upside by it. Most wise people take these words to heart, but some artists take the warning as an invitation, reveling in that self-defeating ...

    Seven-Year Ache

    New Orleans is a fine place to become someone else, or to luxuriate in obscurity of your own making. Mike West and Myshkin have done both in their time. As husband and wife, they were acoustic iconoclasts, nearly lost in the brassy blare of New Orlea...

    Rubber City Meets the Crossroad

    For four years, I lived in Akron, Ohio. These four years were fascinating, because Akron somehow manages to be completely bizarre and profoundly archetypal at the same time; I am 95 percent certain it was the inspiration for the community of Springfi...

    Crossroad to Ruin

    Like the White Stripes and the Black Keys, Mr. Airplane Man are a drums-and-guitar duo that play gritty four-chord trash rock, but that's where the similarity ends. If Jack White is the Enron CEO of neo-garage, Margaret Garrett is its cleanup lady. W...

    Are Interpol the Steve Forbert of postpunk revival acts? (See www.nerdmagazine.org/forbert.html.) Are they, as The New York Times would have it, the beginning of the end of the New York rock underground? Is Matador the Steve Forbert of indie rock lab...

    Rocket Reducer No. 6200
