    Fester and Carbuncle

    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...

    Riffs Are Not Dead

    I've seen the turntables and the damage done. Most juveniles this past holiday season, once they got over Dad not cashing in his pension to buy a PlayStation2 on eBay, probably set their sights on some wheels of steel wrapped in ribbon. I wasn't born...

    Where's Joe Buck?

    It's strange but not all that shocking to see the kingdoms of punk rock and kiddie television meet: Most of the greatest punks have been fueled by the adolescent instinct to be silly and annoying, so it's only natural that these two worlds should fin...

    Backfield in Motion

    It's not too far-fetched, in retrospect, to call Ludacris this year's unofficial Super Bowl rapper. Not just because sports and sex rank dead even on the former scholastic athlete's pleasure scale (why else would he want to get it on at the 50-yard ...

    England's Oldest Hitmakers

    In the beginning the ideal pop tune was as simple and irreducible as an egg, and once it had entered your head you couldn't drive it out with any device short of frontal lobotomy. It had to be so in the early days of the entertainment industry (pop ...

    Our Bodies, Our Salves

    Once upon a time, the sight of a punk girl moving in next door might have sparked a neighborhood watch for the barricades of cultural revolution. By today's grim revolt-into-product times, the lights are on next door, but the punk girl's not home; s...

    Songs for Sassy Upon hearing Dianne Reeves's The Calling (subtitled "A Celebration of Sarah Vaughan"), I had to relisten to Vaughan's classic 1961 bass-and-guitar album, After Hours, to remind myself that the departed Divine One could indeed be a ...

    Half a Life . . .

    . . . Or maybe it's "half alive," or "half a line," or "half a lie." It can be hard to tell what Stephen Malkmus is talking about. It's not just the low-fidelity mumbling. I've often found Pavement lyrics incommunicative, in a way that conveys nei...

    Mistaken Memories - Tony Conrad: One-Idea Composer or Late Bloomer?
