    Tombstone Blues

    They were playing Warren Zevon in the pizza joint where I sat nursing a Chinese cola: a little "Mohammed's Radio" in the afternoon to help digest your shrimp-and-anchovy special. A few more of his toe-tapping near-hits wafted from the speakers, 20-ye...

    It's a Manns Mann's Mann's World

    She's Not There (Not Anymore, Anyway)

    I'll never doubt you again, Goddess! She Mob came to my mailbox as a promo disc earlier on, whereas I'd deliberately ordered the newly issued She set (paid own $$) from an oldies catalog, because the blurb made it sound "interesting." Only after they...

    Bristol Stomp

    You could perhaps call these folks the grandchildren of trip-hop (you remember, that how-slow-can-you-go, mostly British subgenre that decelerated dance music to a creepy crawl and that functioned as bedroom music for narcoleptic lovers). Day One are...

    Are Friends Electro?

    Do you have a bitchin' stereo system? If you don't, go get one. Then go out and buy Space Raiders' Don't Be Daft, and play their song "Monster Munch" at top volume. Yes, that is a sample of Sweet's 1974 "Teenage Rampage" (previously covered by Bo Don...

    Well-Written Beats

    Why is this "beat-based" pairing of Cornershop's Tjinder Singh and Ben Ayres not credited to Cornershop? Answer: Why was Beck's Mutations promoted as not actually the follow-up to Odelay? Answer: When albums scrap the songbook approach for run-on con...

    So Much Difference - The Adorableness of Asian Alphabet Pop

    When my older brother moved to Japan three years ago he spoke of sake in vending machines, judo on the Shimanto River, and J-pop. He spoke of J-pop as if the Ten Commandments were being channeled through its falsetto tones and ripe melodies, as if so...
