    Savant-Garde Garbagetronica - Detroit and Chicago Reinvent Techno Out of Trash

    MAGAS, an arhythmic one-man MC-505 Roland ringleader from Chicago, barks out dance commands like a sergeant, accidentally conjuring brilliant beats. At live performances the crowd treats him like a holy curse; his dark, bass-infested groove is a guil...

    I'd worry that all the divas honored with A's below are over 50 while several of their little sisters show up in Duds. Only (a) I've been dissing two of the former for decades and (b) some other little sisters are doing just fine without reference to...

    New Hope for the Stupid

    Two boys residing in New Hope, Pennsylvania, named Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo meet in an eighth grade typing class in 1984. They huff Scotchgard. They make lots (some say thousands) of four-track recordings. They worship the demon-god Boogni...

    Rock Steady

    The badder the bassline, the funnier the face. This is the rule my friend Brian and I apply to drum'n'bass, punctuating our long, late-night listening sessions with screwed-up noses while doing the Fatboy Slim, point-to-the-record, isn't-this-the-shi...

    Think About Pavement

    I recently made a mix tape titled Corniness in Punk Rock, an effort not unlike setting a coin spinning on its edge so you can make heads and tails of it. On the dark side of the swoon, moans and minor keys lurked; whirling sunny side up, tart pop pas...

    Punk Is Not Sexual

    Mmmmm, you look smokin' laying there on top of your Scooby-Doo! comforter. I saunter up to your bed, reach down into my Bermuda shorts, and whip out Primal Scream's latest, Xtrmntr. "Sweet tits, let me tell you a lil' about this here thing," I say in...

    Crying Gamez

    I like Demerol. It makes me depressed. Actually, I'm almost always depressed. I like Demerol, and Seconal and morphine, because for a few hours I know the source of the sadness; little special effect, comes and goes. It seems poignant and identifi...

    Mental Machine Music

    Whenever I listen to electronic classical music, or the avant of any garde for that matter, I always employ my own patented form of "deep listening," which combines the I Ching, game theory, 600 milligrams of yohimb extract, and 40 well-positioned w...

    The Right Two Notes

    For those who've followed it for years, Bernadette Speach's music sounds like it's in transition. She used to write thickly textured, jazz-tinged, postminimal works in which pitch and texture seemed equally important. Now it's almost as though she's ...

    Hit Me Big Beat One More Time

    Since 1996, when he horrified the international dance music elite with his frisky Better Living Through Chemistry debut, billed with scant regard to technological elegance as Fatboy Slim, 37-year-old English DJ Norman Cook has become nationally popul...

    Turning Japanese

    Jim Jarmusch's movie Ghost Dog ought to have felt like a preposterous mixture: goofy mafiosi and fish-out-of-water gags, existential loneliness and fatalistic attachment. In fact, though, it hits a mood and is mostly able to hold it. A lot of this ha...

    Stumbling Toward Failure

    Spin Age Blasters

    We've heard all about DJs being the new pop stars, but aside from Fatboy Slim and the occasional housed-up ballad, DJ-created grooves have for years been kept far away from American pop radio, relegated to the late-night mix-show ghetto. So it's a bi...
