    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...

    Dream of a Miners Child

    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...

    Two Worlds Apart

    Though it's nearly eight years old, boasts a Mercury Prize winner in Roni Size, and has infiltrated pop culture via car commercials, drum'n'bass still suffers from a giant insecurity complex. Briefly a golden child in the mid '90s, when Goldie, LTJ B...

    Wanna Shake Your Tree

    The lore of Peaches and Chilly Gonzales is rich but brief, mainly because they've been "Peaches" and "Gonzales" for just a few years. Peaches began her musical career 12 years ago as a singer in the Canadian folk band Mermaid Hotel; she also made a n...

    Eat a Lot of Peaches

    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...

    The Donnas have grown up. The Donnas rock. The Donnas are God. Well, maybe not the latter (a strictly Beatles entitlement), but you get the idea. And they've already lasted longer than most of the hairspray bands they love so much did in the '80s. In...

    The Soft Boys

    The beating down of insufficiently motivated rabble with standing waves of steely humming noise is one of the grand traditions of metal. As a long-term strategy, it's square with the benchmark formula of Manowar, i.e., create an ideology that infidel...
