    Punkest Band Around

    Dear Suh: I really do not want this band on my tour no more. They cannot jam worth a damn on "Free Bird" at the end of the night, and the fiddle thing is scaring the hell out of my drunk bass player Yours, Ronnie All right! You can turn in my To...

    Prodigy Present the Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One

    I'd bet the keys to my Lincoln Navigator that if I gave any schmo off the street a crate of records, a mixer, and two turntables, he could come up with a funky feast for the senses. Which is what I love about mix tapes, hip-hop or otherwise, in the f...

    Woman's Work

    In 1998, The New York Times ran a series of articles about women in Muslim countries, including Islamic Africa, showing how devout Muslim women were struggling for social parity in traditionally restrictive cultures. Coincidentally, 1998 was also the...

    Sounds of Known Origin

    Long before the Latin Playboys were imaginable, Los Lobos rode into the rock mainstream on a myth. They were "just another band from East L.A.," the title of their self- released debut LP proclaimed in 1978, and five years later their coming-out EP o...

    Half and Half

    Hip hop has busted pop music open so wide in the past year or two that for everyone but a diminishing minority of aging and/or oddball fans, finding extraordinary casual pleasure in it has become almost a routine. Maybe that's why it took me a few mo...

    Out of the Vinyl Deeps

    All music lovers become record lovers and many record lovers become collectors. Records are like Malraux's muse um without walls, offering an inexpensive opportunity to pursue not only masterworks and favorites, but oddities that fill the side galler...

    The Spaghetti Incident?

    After that motherfucker from an East Village bodega (which shall remain nameless for legal reasons) threw me out for reading an article on Bad Company's much-anticipated reunion, I stumbled down Third Avenue shaken. I'll admit the two hours and 33 mi...

    Wrongs of Spring - Five Radio Presets, Five Formats, Five Songs, Go

    MODERN ROCK: Rufus Wainwright is the apple of rock crits' eyes because he's a smart-but-sensitive prep-schooler turned scruffy guy-like Elliott Smith, he could pass for a rock critic. At least he's less a heartmiser than Elliott. Maybe his airs seem ...

    Uncle Dans Bands - Knockoff Singles: Chips off the Old Block?

    Sometimes the only way to get what you want is to buy something else. That's what Uncle Dan taught me. He's quite a guy, if not quite a guy. Actually, he's the spirit of giving (and taking), a sport and a pastime. "Uncle Dan" is the official trade ...

    Abb Pater

    A major record label doesn't often sign a new artist who's 78 years old and nearly bald. But this performer is unusual. He's got a girl's first name, he draws crowds of adoring teens whenever he tours, he's a trained dramaturge, a poet, and a virgin....

    Just Walk Away

    Kelly Willis has the most uncomfortable-making way of saying "thank you." Live a few weekends ago I heard her say it at least a dozen times, tossed off after songs, every time rolling off as the most deferential, sweetest gull-darned sign of apprecia...

    Trunk Show

    One detects the saplings of an Elephant 6 backlash these days, or as I overheard one fellow record store customer put it, "It sounds better than it sounds." And one might wonder what differentiates Olivia Tremor Control and Elf Power E6 wheelbarrow-...

    Dancer in the Dark - JoJo Fingered?

    JoJo Dancer had a bone to pick, a big bone, hell, a mastodon's femur. He was settling old scores, kicking ass and naming names. But to the chagrin, fury, and general amusement of both those named and those left unscathed, JoJo Dancer, a/k/a The Gay R...

    Wet Behind Ears

    Hi, I am drunk and my finger hurts. I will try my best. Rock criticism is hard work, even harder for those who do it for a living because they have to live in the space of people who tell them what they are supposed to feel, and then make you feel c...

    Get Back, JoJo

    I have now finally seen a copy of the "JoJo Dancer" Rock Critical List thing, which is less vicious than I'd expected which isn't to say that it isn't vicious. I mean, what is this about people being fat, or bald? What difference does that make? I g...

    Tender Mercies

    It may not surface in a Nike ad anytime soon, but Blur's new single, "Tender," is the real bittersweet symphony. Floating in on a brittle folksy twang, given maximum Appalachian resonance by guitarist Graham Coxon, it evolves into a gospelized eight-...

    Windmills of Her Mind

    Beth Orton, meet Dusty Springfield. At first glance, it seems the underground rave-troubadour and the raccoon-eyed Queen of Blue-Eyed Soul would keep a distance between themselves at any party. But the cosmic resonance of Dusty's death a mere six day...

    Pyramid Scheme

    These songs, derived from an as-yet-unfinished musical that pops open the Verdi opera, are only putatively set in Egypt. Nor, despite being financed by Disney, whose president is directly compared in lyricist Tim Rice's liner notes to Verdi's 1871 pa...

    Work To Do

    A decade ago, I replaced a late-canceling Elvis Costello as the keynote speaker at SXSW 89, the Austin music conference whose status in its third year can be gauged by its willingness to settle for me. Back then New York's New Music Seminar was the w...
