    Je TAime . . . Moi Non Plus

    In an old Radio On fanzine my friend Scott Woods put this diptych in his Top 100 favorite songs of all time: 54. "I Love Rock 'N' Roll," Joan Jett & the Blackhearts (1982) Me too! 55. "I Don't Like Rock 'N' Roll," Schoolly D (1986) Me either! S...

    Hartbreaker (With Her Forty-Four)

    Turns out Beth Hart's "L.A. Song" is not merely one more antishowbiz rant from a tender-tough broadski. (Janis left 'em here to sing this song, from Maggie Bell and Genya Ravan down thru Kim Carnes's Morning After tonsils on every Disease of the Week...

    If White Folks Had Invented Jazz, Would Anyone Care?

    Back when jazz was young, say from 1915 to 1932, it came in two flavors: hot and sweet. Chocolate and vanilla, roughly speaking. The hot stuff took the weary old ache of the blues and stuck afterburners on it, blasting it into orbit. The men that mad...

    Hey Dreaming Cowboy with a Big Ole Texas Grin

    The Dreaming Cowboy has been away from his home and his woman for 20 years, riding in rodeos. After his body breaks down he stays where he is, far from San Antone, riding a barstool each night until the lights come up. Amazed at how the years have fl...

    Laptop Beats, Digital Birds, and Ricci Fiends

    Mos Testifies, Monch Eats - More Than One Way to Rawk a Funky Joint

    Rawkus Records, which built a niche nurturing rap acts with small, loyal followings like Company Flow and Sir Menelik, is supposed to be a bulwark against the materially obsessed, dumbed-down styles that rule radio. But who wants to stay underground ...

    Online With the Divine

    "The world is a piece of shit." That observation, courtesy of Fiona Apple on the occasion of her first MTV Award, suggests how Apple and Tori Amos, the moment's prime purveyors of particularly female pop aesthetics, inspire fits of both devotion an...

    African Connection II

    Apologies to those who regularly skip my African selections, which have been getting me through rock's bad times (see Honorable Mention, especially toward the bottom) since the middle '80s. And thanks to an old riot grrrl for doing her latest thing. ...

    Good Vibrations - Blue Note Promotes Rookie to Majors

    Before this year, jazz lovers often noted the odd statistic that all eminent players of the vibraphone (and its acoustic forebears, the xylophone and marimba) were alive, defying the normal mortality rate while encompassing most of the music's histor...

    Recovering Mrs. Jones (and How Mr. Jones Helped)

    I spent the winter of 1994 through the summer of 1995 soaking myself in August and Everything After. I did lots of variations on the theme of playing it through, playing some part of it, and playing some part of a part of it over and over. Up to a fe...

    Master of the Slow Surprise

    In the history books, Phill Niblock is the forgotten minimalist. K. Robert Schwarz's Minimalism doesn't mention him, while Edward Strickland's Minimalism: Origins alludes to him only in lists of Downtown composers. Shame on both books, for Niblock ha...

    It Takes Two

    The way for small, chic labels to thrive in the '90s has apparently been to operate on two people's taste. Sub Pop was at its peak when it was all about what Jonathan Poneman and Bruce Pavitt liked; K, until recently, was Calvin Johnson and Candice P...

    After a soliloquy whose family shtick might be parodying a Wu-Tang kung fu sample, the opening track's bodacious soul-funk groove kicks under a jump-cut montage of further kickoffs: genial host warming up a catcalling crowd; DJ IDing himself ("Automa...
