    November Songs

    For Lou Reed and Patti Smith, old heroes with new product, maturity's not exactly a breaking story. Lou's goes back 18 years to The Blue Mask, and while Patti's official seniority starts in 1995, when the androgynous poet turned widowed mother return...

    What It Was

    You think you're bad. You are so not bad. Sonny Hopson could quite feasibly be called bad. Hopson was a disc jockey who waited for nobody's approval and played 45s on the radio in Philadelphia in the 1960s. Radio was segregated, life was pretty segre...

    Playbacks a Bitch - Matmos: Where Art Worlds Collide

    Comeback Number Six - Lonnie Johnson at Home

    Lonnie Johnson is back, sort of. It's only fitting: He's been coming back every decade or so since the 1920s, casting big shadows and then receding into them, as though he were nothing more than a footnote to his own text. Had he died in 1930, he wou...
