    Hip-Hoperation: Mindcrime

    A decade ago, when Del the Funky Homosapien was still spelling his name funee, his cousin Ice Cube drafted him as point man for a mid-gangsta-age P-Funk revival and piled more George Clinton-copyrighted hooks on Del's first album than a too-goofy-for...

    Pretty Snide (For Some Orange Guys)

    Orange County, California: 800 square miles of white people, wedged in between L.A. and San Diego. Hardly punk rock central, from the looks of it: The land behind the Orange Curtain is a strip of beach backed up by a freeway-ridden patchwork of offic...

    Where the Action Isnt

    Alt-rock may be alive and well, but not so's bashing it is much fun right now. Though many alt bands were considered for Turkey Shoot 2000, only one proved offensive enough to decapitate. Even artistically, the rock action is mostly on the pop charts...

    Did You Hear Sonny Rollins? - The One Youve Been Waiting For

    Last August, at Lincoln Center Plaza, 70-year-old Sonny Rollins gave one of the most exhilarating, inspired, go-for-broke, don't-look-back performances I have ever seen. OK, I've probably written something like that before, but having missed maybe th...

    Eggs and Elephants - Henry Gwiazda Paints a Surreal World of Sounds and Shapes

    CINCINNATIChimes ring like a doorbell, but with the wrong interval. You hear crunching noises, and then seagulls, though you don't see any animal life at all. Instead, you see a gigantic egg arising from a calm sea. A moment of jazz drumming erupts,...

    Canaries Eating Kittens

    I haven't seen the movie Bring It On, though the cover of the CD probably gives a good idea of what the movie's about: a picture of some white cheerleader chicks shaking their butts and looking like the cat that ate the canary; next to it a picture o...

    Raver on the Storm

    Fatboy Slim's new single "Sunset (Bird of Prey)" isn't the first time Jim Morrison's ghost has haunted dancefloors. Back in 1992, Acen's "Close Your Eyes" plucked some ominous exhortations"Forget your name. . . . Go insane"from the Doors' gloriousl...

    Come Softly to Me

    It says here in the notes to David Roter Method's They Made Me that Mr. Roter is an educator; actually, you might think of him as someone who is to Blue yster Cult what Jack Tempchin is to the Eagles. Anyway, if the contents of They Made Me are any ...

    Dog Food for Justice - A Tribute to Art and a Tribute From the Heart

    Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska is pretty unimposing for a monument. People embarrassed by the overstatement that made Springsteen a hero, and also the heroism that made him a hero, now often cite it as his best, but as an early dissenter from his overs...

    No Hype to Not Believe

    Just as the Internet has arrived to bring nations together in one big e-mailed chorus of "It's a Small World After All," the American record biz has entrenched itself in a phase of Brit-phobia more severe than in any other pop period since the one be...
