    Love Jones

    Used to be, a hiphop love song was something like Rakim's "Mahogany" or Shallah Raekwon's "Ice Cream" tunes celebrating shorties from around the way; hardrocks need love too. These days, hiphop love songs are more like Common's "I Used To Love H.E.R...

    Chick Dance

    I spent most of last Wednesday in court due to the restraining order Lil' Kim slapped on me, so I missed most of the Grammy pregame action. As for the show itself, I still can't decide whether my favorite moment was when O.D.B. rushed the stage and...

    The Goths Must Be Crazy - Dark Metal's Windowless World

    Rock'n'roll has always been public music. It shouts out loud, demanding to be played outdoors, or in steel-framed and cinder-blocked arenas seating multi- thousands. What else do you expect of Jimi Hendrix or Led Zeppelin, Metallica or Aerosmith, Gun...

    Too Sweet To Die

    Introducing a "Richland Woman Blues" that began crude and ended up delivering the lyric at least as strong as Mississippi John Hurt, David Johansen told us the New York Dolls used to rehearse the song. He didn't recall why they'd canned it, but hey, ...

    Renaissance Man

    Milton Nascimento once described to me something he'd witnessed while performing in a soccer stadium in his native Brazil. He'd started singing "Corao Estudante," about the precious capacity of youth for change and self-liberation. Gazing up into t...

    Here Be Dragons

    Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas first decided they were Chicano in 1995. It happened on their third album, Chaco, two full years before Mexican rapero crews like Control Machete and Molotov would start donning khakis, throwing mock gang signs, and ...

    Mo' Better Moses

    Basement Jaxx

    Nobody exemplifies the promiscuous impurism of late-'90s house music better than Basement Jaxx, the South London duo of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe. On their two recent singles (four A sides + dub versions = an album's worth of stuff), virtually...

    Uprostred - Czechoslovakian Rock After Plastic People and Pulnoc
