  • Because I Got High


    Because I Got High

    It's always impossible to pin a date on these things, but somewhere in the time line of alternative rock, the scruffy set's preoccupation with guitar noise as an end itself (following the likes of Sonic Youth in the U.S. and Jesus and Mary Chain in t...

  • The Uptowners Among Us - That Old-Time Complexity Is Good Enough


    The Uptowners Among Us - That Old-Time Complexity Is Good Enough

    I haven't written much about composers of a generation younger than mine, and I feel bad about it. I've sometimes gone to their concerts without writing about them, because I've had trouble explaining them to myself in a Downtown context. I'm petrifi...

    The Out-of-Towners If ever we needed the drummer from the world's greatest rock and roll band, this would be the moment. Janet Weiss, of Sleater-Kinney, and her side project, Quasi, were at the Knitting Factory Friday night, and we hoped to banish...

    Planet of the Apes

    "Who will save rock 'n' roll?" ask the Dictators, who've been trying hard for 25 years. Well, ladies and gentlemen, here's the answer: ZEN GUERRILLA. But don't take my word for it, cuz words are dry little lifeless approximations, refractions of the ...

  • Stand and Deliver


    Stand and Deliver

    I love Dead Moon: the preeminent rock band in the Pacific Northwest, where rock bands are as common as moss. But let's be safe, and call them the preeminent garage band in that region, since DM share some superficial characteristics with the garage i...

    Strictly Solalian - Martial Solal Plays Everything All at Once

    Probably the worst label one can stick on a jazz musician is Intellectual, a nebulous term that almost always serves as a warning: You may be expected to do some workif you consider close listening work. The second most insidious label is Virtuoso, ...

    The Anti-Bling Kings

    Rap's a funny business, really. People will pay to experience as "entertainment" what in real life they'd run a mile from: bug-eyed sociopaths threatening cruel and unusual deaths, nouveau riche bores bragging about their income and expensive possess...

    Toris Got a Gun

    The first girls who memorized every gasp and coo of Tori Amos must be getting on in age by now. Postadolescence isn't quite dotage, but in the nearly 10 years since Amos rose from the ashes of Kellogg's commercials and ill-fated quasi-hair-band escap...

    'Til the Tears Run Dry "If you hear me crying by myself/sitting on the bed with the tears watering out/thinking about all the trouble I'm in. . . well I'm crying for the good times," belted out Craig Fox on Saturday at the Mercury Lounge, during t...

    The Stockholm Syndrome

    "I have discovered a mind-blowing world of music that nobody seems to know about," a pop manager of my acquaintance announced over his cell phone several years ago, running through LAX, "and it is named Sweden!" The long Backstreet/Britney/'N Sync mo...

    Not That Innocent

    Sometimes you just wanna have fun, and sometimes you fake it so real it is beyond fake. And sometimes they're the same thing. Stella Soleil and the Rondelles both sound like they're having lots of fun on their new records. Dirty Little Secret and Shi...

    How Life Isnt Anymore

    It is difficult, in light of September 11, to consider Macy Gray with any degree of seriousness. She explicitly revels in Dionysian pleasures, and her mostly harmless sophomore release, The Id, appeared exactly a week after the terrorist attack on th...

    Intelligence Data

    I'm not sorry for nothing I've done. I'm glad I fought, I only wish we'd won. Pretty wry for a spry guy, this Bob Dylan character. The codger's got plenty kick left in him yet. Feel like a fightin rooster, feel better than I ever felt, but the Penn...

    " 'Cause I got high, 'cause I got high, 'cause I got hi-igh, ya-da-da-da-dada!" If you haven't yet heard the yodeled refrain of Afroman's comic paean to the perils of puffing, the rock you live under must live under a rock. The song rolls with the fi...

    Down But Not Out - Downtown Scene Not Diminished

    I'll never forget my first trip on the New York subway, in 1981. I saw a sign that referred to the WTC, and my mental screen froze. Why in the world, I thought, is there a notice in the subway for Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier? I would have had a hell...

    Clubs Crawl The week of the World Trade Center disaster, nightclubs around the city were to be filled with artists ranging from White Stripes to Herbert to Richie Hawtin for the annual CMJ Music Marathon. Instead, the stages were desolate and empt...

    Looking for Better Than That - Figuring Out Whos in Tune as the Smoke Clears

    Early Tuesday, September 11, conniving for a lead to begin this column, I fancied myself Diogenes in search of an honest singer, squinting through the light of my lamp and defeated by darkness time and again. A meager joke, but at 8:30 a.m., having l...

    Ghost Dance - Its a Bomber, Its a Bomber, Its a Bomber

    Wednesday there was e-mail from Jessica Hopper of Hyper PR in Chicago, apologizing for having to tell us where her bands were headed now that CMJ had been postponed. "Nothing like profound tragedy to make our myopic punk rock world and scene squabble...

    Fade to Black - The End of Frivolity as We Know It

    I'm willing to bet, perhaps crassly, that a lot of current careers and genres were shredded as a result of last Tuesday. Some probably don't know it yet, but they're dead. It will take about half a year for the majors to sort out, but they're going t...

    Talking World War III Blues - A Hard Rain Starts to Fall

    One of the only records I've been able to stomach since 9-11 hit was released that very day. Bob Dylan's Love and DeathI mean Love and Theftbegins with the image of twins, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, throwing knives into a tree, and continues, "Tw...
