    Nothing's Shocking

    My wife didn't quite know what to say as I set off for the ''Family Values'' Tour. Have a good time? Get real. Good luck? No kidding. Then I had an idea: ''Wish that nobody hits me.'' And so it was to be. As I gazed down upon the separately tickete...

    Easy Does It - Club Pop's Soothing Internationalism

    For the adepts of the hybrid known as club pop, the trick is to integrate digital innovations while somehow holding on to human virtues like humor, imagination, and warmth--not to mention sex that involves actual physical contact. Taking easy listeni...

    If She Makes You Happy

    I wish women singer-songwriters let themselves be fast, funny, and funky more often, and that might explain why Sheryl Crow makes me wince less than any other female folkie out there right now. She's upscale, up-to-date, and down-to-earth, she's got ...

    Hello Dolly

    The Lee Ann Womack fairy tale has problems. First and foremost, it hasn't delivered big money: just gold, not the multiplatinum of early expectations. Second, you-all haven't heard it. Here it is, then. Once upon a time in Texas, a part-time countr...

    Do for Self

    As De La Soul tried to tell us on their last album, there is a widening philosophical schism between rap music's ''cash rules everything around me'' pragmatists and its dreamers. On Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star, the Native Tongue-anointed duo...

    Your Right To Party

    "Okay folks, I've had a couple of suggestions for how to deal with this. Maybe we could take a vote?" a flustered Captain John Codiglia of the Manhattan South Task Force announced over a bullhorn last Sunday, hoping to cajole the 400 or so boisterous...

    Symphony in Beef Major

    Here are the pictures: The gory carcass of a cow sags from two iron hooks. A blindfolded man strapped to a cross is being nestled into the carcass's chest cavity, his white robe soaked with bovine blood. Other men lie across him, held in place by rop...

    Love Taps

    I... cannot ignore what we have shared together. I don't care what you say, but if you were 100% fulfilled in your marriage I never would have seen that raw, intense sexuality that I saw a few times--watching your mouth on my breast or looking in you...

    Starring... Slinky

    In certain kinds of boy's music, a touch of repression, of uncool, of uptightness, life not on the edge, can cut its own mysterious groove. Even Dave Brubeck's collegiate jazz had some buzz just because he had the nerve to look (and sound) so square,...

    Brought On

    As I've often reflected over seven years of chairing the panel of mixed professionals that awards the U.K.'s Mercury Music Prize, arts prizes involve odd kinds of judgment and make only an oblique contribution to canon formation. Two records on this ...

    Boombox Babies

    I was No. 11. Before I could decide if participating in a show I was to review was or wasn't ethically dubious, I was propelled by a crowd current onto the stage at Wetlands, where the Flaming Lips were conducting their 19th ''Boombox Experiment'' on...

    Old Man Rivers

    A funny thing happened to Sam Rivers on the way to his 68th birthday last Friday--he turned 75. Every reference book and liner note states his birth year as 1930. He professes not to understand why, cheefully affirming the correct year as 1923, a dif...

    Ain't No Light

    One of the packaging perks of the new 10-CD box set The Complete Hank Williams is a series of postcard reproductions of recent art about Hank. A more useful inclusion might have been a refrigerator magnet with a toll-free number for Alcoholics Anonym...

    Hanky Panky

    The Complete Hank Williams is an amazing document, with 53 previously unreleased tracks. It is not complete, however, because it doesn't include anything from a 1951 Hank Williams radio series sponsored by Mother's Best Flour. There are 180 or so Mo...

    Gray Line--Off Rhyme

    Suicide wallpaper. That should be right: background music that keeps you up at night. And yet. Wallpaper gets a bad rap, because it's two-dimensional and decorative and lower-middle-class. Background doesn't get much respect either, like somethin...

    Tom Z's peculiar contribution to the Tropicalistas' still-thrilling 1968 collaborative album Tropiclia: Ou Panis et Circencis was the satiric antidevelopment anthem "Parque Industrial," which sang of a Penny Lane industrial park where laughing chil...

    Preserving its central element of willing torture, Stereo Total have turned karaoke into an art form. At the Bowery Ballroom last Wednesday, singer Franoise Cactus had the stiff demeanor of a woman whose boyfriend had just pushed her on stage and en...

    In the biz, September is boom time, and you'll find several brand-new albums below, with other late-month releases certain to follow. But in my life, it's also time to put a summer's pleasures on paper. I don't know how the Garbage sounds on the radi...

    Who's Beautiful Now?

    My Marilyn Manson connection began with a T-shirt. As I was standing in line for a Tricky concert, kids fresh from Manson's Antichrist extravaganza the night before arrived wearing his Satanic Army togs--a spoof of the Salvation Army. I knew I'd gone...
