    Throughout the 1980s, African pop stylessome generations old, some invented last seasoncame in a stampede. Everything from mbaqanga to mbalax, juju to zoukous to bikouts, rushed through Western ears. Supposedly, this was the international payoff fo...

    The Super Rail Band's bassist broke a string one song in, and everything stopped. After a minute he strolled offstage with the two vocalists, the rhythm guitarist, and the djembe drummer, leaving Djelimady Tounkara up there with the trap and conga pl...

    Perpetual Brownout

    Imagine for a moment that you're Neil Young. Now get a haircut and change your shirt. Oh, sorrywhat I meant to say was, wouldn't it drive you mad to contemplate fading into grunge godfather status after cooking up that rust-or-burn clich yourself? ...

    After the Last Call

    Brand New Men - Hillbilly Hunks Cope With Changing Gender Roles

    Judging by the album charts, the most popular men in country music this past winter were EMF, INXS, and Don Henley. Oh, and can't forget the Outhere Boys, them of "Boom Boom Boom" fame (y'know"Girl, your booty is so round/Let me lick you up and down...

    Ah Know How To Undress Me - Sensitive Maleness in CMT's Countdown

    Montgomery Gentry! Eddie "Peanut M &" M and Troy the G (uitarist, mainly) often seem like they're dreaming on bar stools, yet somehow took CMA Award for Duo of the Year 2000 away from eight-time winners Brooks & Dunn (not a lot of competition, I'd sa...

    D-Dang-A-Dang Me

    Like on a lot of recent country albums, the sound choices are rich enough on Nobody's Got It All, the new John Anderson LP: soul horns on the first track, which he sings with the blues feel of a gospel- or soul-based blues singer like Bobby Blue Blan...

    Hybrid Vigor A sense of puzzlement hung over the SummerStage crowd during Bongo Maffin's set on Saturday afternoon. The day began with DJ sets by Ron Trent and Martin Morales, whose Afro-Brazilian grooves fell roughly between Bongo Maffin's club-f...

    What's My Age Again?

    Love my people. Love them madly. Well, sort of. From a distance. Teenagers, I meanaggressively whiny ones, especially when they temper their ill will with a devout belief in the redemptive powers of pretty guitars. I feel a pang of recognition when ...

    Do The Strokes - England Discovers New York Again

    There is a tragic halfway point between All Saints and Radiohead, and most of Britain's current guitar bands keep at least one toe on such squishy, lukewarm ground: Travis, Gomez, Stereophonics, Coldplay. And as we well know, being average is a far g...

    Minnie the Moocher's Revenge - Sing Along With the JVC All-Stars

    Say this of JVC: The plot changes annually. It may look the same on paper, may list toward the same artists, suffer the same limitations, capitulate to the same distractions, but George Wein's flagship festival manages to take different turns each su...

    Paint Your Wagon When Les Ttes Brules took on SummerStage for Africa Fte on Sunday, it felt less like a muggy afternoon in the city than a beach party. Members of the five-man, one-woman band from Cameroon outfitted themselves in cutoffs with b...

    Jumping the Groove - David First Slips Inaudibly From Drones to Rock and Back

    The day minimalism was born, inertia became a problem again. It had last been one in the 18th century. Bach and Handel, once they started a musical movement, were content to chug along without significant change in tempo or texture until the final ch...

    "Follow us, comrade aviators," the rhythm-and-punk Gang of Four called out to fellow travelers everywhere on 1980's Entertainment!: "Swim into the abyss." Well, OK, not exactlythat wasn't Go4 speaking; it was the painter-theorist Kasimir Malevich in...

    Who Isnt Jill Scott?

    I used to call artists like Nikka Costa, Res, Sunshine Anderson, India.Arie, and Pru "anti-divas." It was the kind of compact, catchy term that could spice up a daily-story lead, headline, or nut graf, without much fuss or need for explanation. But t...

    Franco de Mi Amor

    The best shorthand for the many-named hero christened Franois Luambo Makiadi and known as Franco is to coin a clich and call him the James Brown of Africa. As individual artists the two had different strengths: Brown made his name as a vocalist bef...

    Monkey Wrench

    You'd have to judge the quality of Gorillaz on a sliding scale of how seriously you take them. If you see this group project as the light-as-fluff sideline of a few otherwise busy pop-culture gurus, then you can accept it as an amusing hour of distra...
