    Bye Bye Bipolar I bet the fat fuck in 'N Sync is real glad the band inked that deal with Mickey Dhe probably averages a half-dozen Big Macs a day, I said to myself while band plus arm candy strolled down the red carpet at the MTV Video Music Awar...

    Lying Saucer

    Every day sees one more example of the creeping nincompoopism constant in American life. Today's selection is UFO's Covenant. The "bonus" disc included with it is a live recording, the track listing of which is so utterly fubar it bears not even the ...

    Hush Roar at Rush Hour

    In some ways, Underworld are just three guys who, consistently sustaining the most distinct sonic signature, think up ways to make endless series of dancebeats sound rivetingbut that's a little like saying the Rolling Stones were just five guys who ...

    Under Heavy Manners

    Cheese is often the result of deep talent and a forward vision. David Axelrod was to studio funk what Joe Meek was to Merseybeat: a mad-scientist insider who twisted further and further toward the margins until all that was left was twist. For this h...

    Spirituality Having Flown

    House music aunts and uncles often regale their younger brethren with tales of the good old days at the Paradise Garage, the celebrated downtown New York club that was open from 1977 to 1987 in a former truck depot at 84 King Street. With tears welli...

    Essence of Tropiclia

    I was not my first choice for this piece. I was hoping a Portuguese speaker or, even better, someone who actually witnessed Tropiclia's birth would step up to wave the flag for the Gilberto Gil reissues. But these CDs have been sitting in the racks ...

    Keeping It Unreal

    In the dawning of our Lord Jesus Cobain, a/k/a the fall of 1991, P.M. Dawn's debut hip-hop single, "Set Adrift on Memory Bliss," rode to the top of Billboard's pop singles chart, and it felt like an affront on every level to alt-rockers and gangsta r...

    Rattling the Stones - Glenn Branca and Friends Shake the Brooklyn Bridge

    If the Brooklyn Bridge seemed unusually wobbly as you drove over it July 20, especially at one end, I think I can explain. In the previous few days, the Lincoln Center Festival had completed a quirkily heterogeneous survey of digital and analog elect...

    Mixed-and-Matched Emotions

    A friend of mine says this about Ida: "They're terrible. I love them as people, but their lyrics and style just make me cringe." The irony is that he finds Elizabeth Mitchell's voice transporting, grainy, and warm enough to resurrect an old Dolly Par...

    Grace Under Pressure

    Looking past Eminem, Britney, and Creed to the unknowns, this summer's most persistent chart-huggers have been a St. Louis rapper whose signing represents a rock A&R man at Universal's first venture into hip-hop and a Vacaville, California, hard rock...

    D.I. Why Not?

    Times Lonesome Fugitives

    Come September, Rancid's skull-and-crossbones promo sticker's gonna be stuck to the cover of my Trapper Keeper, like it should've been in '93, when the band's first self-titled disc mocked my middle-school world. Their new record rules, but in the pa...

    Wizards of Ozone

    Finding a decently burning rock and roll band in Southern California is much like searching for ozone-free sky in Pasadena, where every citizen's share of auto smog blocks the sun's UV as efficiently as a lead-lined bunker. Those who look tan for the...

    Glitches With Attitude

    Not so much a genre as a mode of appreciation, IDM (short for "intelligent dance music") was infamously defined by ambient guru Mixmaster Morris as "the opposite of stupid hardcore." Pure prog mind/body split, this snobby distinction between food for...
