    Outer Children - The Moldy Peaches Slip You a Roofie

    The concrete details of a vivid emotional experience have faded, and my notebook is only so much help. But this much I know. On September 10 I spent several hours with the Moldy Peaches and (was it?) 20 kids between the ages of one and 12. We were in...

    The Man Who Wasn't There

    I. About 23 times a year, by his count, the narrator of Nicholson Baker's novel The Mezzanine wonders, "McCartney more talented than Lennon?" The comparative gifts of George Harrison, who died last week at 58, could hardly provoke similar debate, ye...

    Bad Haircut, Good Ragtime - Brun Campbell Takes Scott Joplins Lessons to the Wild Bunch

    The Man in the Distance

    An odd thing about Michael Jackson is that he has a totally spectacular voice but he doesn't feel the need to amaze us with it. At all. His favorite technique for conveying passion is to choke off his words. On dance songs he makes his voice as hard ...

    Hear Me Talkin to Ya - Ashley and Marchetti Reunite in a Mind-Blowing Nonconcert

    Musical evenings rarely come as weird and wacky these days as did the October 25 Interpretations concert at Merkin Hall. We had opera without singers, pianists who played no pianos. "What the heck's going on?" and "Is this music?" came floating back ...
