    Money Jungle Music

    Take the A train rumbling through Matthew Shipp's piano: repeated fistfuls of Johnny Staccato chords, gunmetal black-and-white flesh tones, Weegee-board edges jutting out at ramrod left angles, no 52nd Street exit in sight but out the window maybe a ...

    Waiting for a Miracle

    No other semi-pop performer's repertoire prefigures our post-September 11 woes and worries as well as Bruce Cockburn's. The emotional and numerical center of his new career retrospective, Anything Anytime Anywhere, is held down by three mid-'80s take...

    Hand Me the Jam

    "I'm not [an actor]," wrote Phil Austin in The Firesign Theatre's Big Book of Plays, published six years after the group's creation in 1966. "I'm a musician. Interesting that it was the sounds of the words that got to me the most. . . . It was a pure...

    Our Chopin - A Gift From Cecil Taylor

    Some people decry Cecil Taylor as a composer because he rarely revisits pieces and doesn't provide song-form themes for others to play, just as some people decry Thelonious Monk as a composer because he was constantly revisiting pieces and worked alm...

    Moon Rising Fast - The Beata Moon Ensemble Makes Its Maiden Voyage

    Beata Moon is self-taught as a composer. Not as a musician; in fact, she graduated from Juilliard as a pianist, and is that rare performer, one who turns to composing a little later than composers normally start. (Flutist-composer Elizabeth Brown, al...

    Knocked Out Loaded "Brooklyn! Let's fuck together!" Mario Escovedo yelled mid-set, as a prologue to a so-called "ballad." The Ramones-style rip had as its chorus "I wanna wanna wanna wanna fuck everyone!" At the Dragons' Friday show at Luxx, the J...

    Swapping Spit

    Rancid bassist Matt Freeman may well be the nimblest musician in punk history, but he's got a voice like a pair of semis crashing into each other. It starts out a flat, gravelly roar and quickly picks up volume but not speed; he sings as far behind t...

    Electric Shavers

    The Prima Donnas' Drugs Sex & Discotheques opens with the magenta whirl of something that gets broadly referred to, in pop terms, as the '80s. Songs like "Nance Music Manifesto" and "Reagan's Dead" copy records from those jumpy years after the offici...

    Born to Be Alive

    By now, you've seen this image everywhere: a greasy-haired, fucked-up, metalhead-looking kid with blood pouring out of his nose and running over his mouth and chin, and a worn, yet somehow gloriously undefeated look in his eyes. Maybe you were jarred...

    Like At the Drive-In, . . . And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead are a band of ass-whuppin' Texans with a stupidly great name, turning indie rock on its ear by reaching back to the land that punk forgot. Just as ATDI copped the MC5's 'fros-of-fu...

    Here, My Dear

    It's a tale as old as the hills: Boy meets girl, boy and girl date for a long time, girl dumps boy, boy is devastated, boy writes songs. Hell, people (and certainly not just boys) have based their entire careers on it, and some would argue that the g...
