    Girls With The Most Pie

    Inside her new CD cover, Lisa Loeb is stroking her tongue with a cream-smeared finger, and looking sideways. Raunchy? Potentially: The picture alongside is of an upright straw soaking in a pool of milk. Then she's contemplating her creamed finger, he...

    Plaid Tidings Bagpipes are so punk rock. They're ugly, they're clamorous, they're easy to learn, and their defiant DIY allure is sealed by a rebel pedigree: The Great Highland Bagpipe is the only musical instrument ever banned as a weapon of war....
