    Turkey Shoot

    It's barf time once again at rock's big table, and I've got a question for the ipecac people. Do all the indie labels in the binge-and-purge below reflect alt's compromised preparation standards? Or has the biz gotten so disgusting there's no place e...

    For the Love of Money

    Two words say almost everything you need to know about Cash Money, the New Orleans label that has pretty much ruled rap in 1999: Mannie Fresh. Not just because he's the producer who programs, engineers, and plays nearly every instrument on records by...

    Humans, Posthumans, and a Detergent Ad - How Doo Doo Doo Doo Heartbreaker

    Forget that "opera-trained" hoodoo that sur rounded Mariah's early years. First of all that's a code to cajole the easily impressed and class-conscious into taking some low-falutin' pop singer seriously as an ARTIST (see also Pat Benatar '80). In Mar...

    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...
