    To Groove Or Not To Groove

    Ten is the number of monumentality: at least over at Nonesuch Records, which has released a 10-disc set of Steve Reich, one of the Kronos Quartet, and is now releasing one of John Adams in coming weeks. The Kronos had a lot of unknown repertoire chom...

    Formula Racing

    Everyone in Nashville understands that the New Country formula-slick production with a seamless touch of roots and updated suburban family values-isn't enough anymore. But where Garth Brooks went from Billy Joel covers to a Babyface cloning now high ...

    Tangible As An Ice-Cold Longneck

    During my first trip to Memphis this past August, I thought I'd soak up a little culture, so my wife and I made our way down to Wild Bill's, the kind of sticky-floored juke joint I had read about in numerous Peter Guralnick books but never experience...

    Taking Jungle Out of Its Jungle

    With the success of 1997's New Forms, Roni Size and Reprazent seemed poised to take drum and bass from Bristol to the rest of the world. But even after New Forms collected pounds of praise and dominated dance floors, drum and bass never really left i...

    Naked, Famous, Increasingly Fond of Murder Songs

    No pop star is as aptly nicknamed as Trickynot Ol' Dirty Bastard, not Flea, not even p. When a pop star like Will Smith or Mary J. Blige drops a sample, their purposes are transparent. They filch riffs from old-school tunes to give you that nostalgi...

    White Lines (Do It)

    All we wanted was the cocaine . . . (get your nose off the mirror, buddy) . . . the song "I love the cocaine/I love the cocaine," Buckcherry's "Lit Up." Lay down the snowy rails and let the party train begin. Or just lay down that Angus Young riff an...

    Wrigley's in the Trashcan - James Miller Tries to Control What He No Longer Loves

    There's a rare unguarded moment in the impressive discography-bibliography to James Miller's Flowers in the Dustbin: The Rise of Rock and Roll 19471977, when he comes upon "a really esoteric item featuring Jimi Hendrix playing with a U.K. group call...

    Summer of 69

    Do you believe in life after "Believe"? It's easy to have affairs with pop songs, since mass culture pimps them so effectively. The demand for a top 40 song is often itself manufactured, or at least helped along by repetition, as with the omnipresent...

    If every Sgt. Pepper's begets its Satanic Majesties Request,and every Woodstock its Woodstock '99, Alexander "Skip" Spence's post-Bellevue Oar, first released in 1969, resembles a dark, delayed reaction to Brian Wilson's fuzzy-wuzzy 1966 nervous brea...

    Paint Their Backstreet Black

    Making an Old Bag New Again - Desco Records and Breakestra Put Funk Back on the Good Foot

    Balancing the Audio and Visual

    To write music for a play or narrative film is a relatively clear-cut kind of composing: You have certain cracks to fill in and moods to set, and when it doesn't work the director says so and you do it over. What the composers and film makers at the ...

    From the attention of Brion Gysin and William Burroughs in the '50s, to that of Brian Jones in '68 and latecomer Mick Jagger in '89, the Master Musicians of Jajouka possess a celebrity cachet disproportionate to the three albums they've released duri...

    Boys and Girls of Summer

    Everybody acts like prettyboy bubble-rap trio LFO's "Summer Girls," biggest-selling single in the land last week, is all non sequiturs. But to me, it's clearly nostalgia for the '80s, where almost all of LFO's cultural references come from. Two tyke...
