    Out of Time

    It was Prince Paul's party at Tramps last Tuesday, though you might not have guessed. Aside from a brief, winningly loopy speech before he snuck behind the decks for the 10-year reunion of his group Stetsasonic and a little freestyle party curtailed ...

    Die Old Stay Pretty

    While so many of the manjacks in my fiftysomething-else cohort may have rushed out for a Viagra script the minute the ol' missionary did a paradigm shift on them, I find that pure rock 'n' roll still keeps the jeweled erector set functional to a T. W...

    Screeching Old Dixie Down

    People who remember Nazareth at all seem to have strong feelings about the band; when my friend Naomi heard that I was reviewing them she asked, "Do you have to wear a disguise when you walk into Tower and buy a Nazareth album?" And my friend Leslie ...

    Ad It Up

    Here's your second chance to catch statuesque Sevendust front-stud LaJon Witherspoon's gorgeous smile, shoulder-length dreads, and naked bust. The biracial mosh-metal band five tattooed-in-all-the-right-places Atlanta dudes who toured with rapcore ...

    Phased & Konfused

    Steve Reich's music hums with vibrating waves of our century's ocean of sound, an ocean that swallows up Charlie Parker and Junior Walker, African drums and Manhattan abstraction, gamelan trance and looping magnetic tapes. But Reich's experiments als...

    Y Not 2K? - As the millennium ends, Modernist Music is making a comeback. Why are we suddenly nostalgic for the formerly new?

    The music that has constituted the "contemporary music" of my lifetime so far is a music violently opposed to nostalgia. As Pierre Boulez, one of its leading architects, wrote, "If you do not negate, if you do not make a clean sweep of all that you h...

    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...

    Couth and Coolth - The Cream of Cabaret Month

    This year's Grammy Awards were dispensed just before March was proclaimed New York's cabaret month by Mayor Giuliani, in one of his more benign recent gestures. No Grammys were presented to cabaret performers, however. The music industry as it operat...

    He's Got Your Disease

    I heard the hype and thought I'd hate him. So I put on Eminem just so I'd have an informed negative opinion and looked forward to the $5 I'd pocket at the local used CD store. Twenty tracks later, I couldn't wait to play him again. "God sent me to ...

    32 Questions

    What makes a great MC? Is it hypnotizing flow a delivery that gets inside the drum and bass patterns and creates its own rhythm line and a magnetic voice, and sharp details, and high-tech slang, and striking punch lines, and witty metaphors, and or...

    WWF The Music, Volume 3

    Getting Jiggy With It

    For years audiences on St. Patrick's Day have tolerated hokey bands dressed in Aran sweaters crooning "Danny Boy" while Americans of questionable Irish roots ("my great-great-grandmother is from County Dublin") invent their own version of the jig. Ne...

    The "Ancient" Greeks whose barely-B.C. bonus track kicks off 20 Centuries of Hits sound like they might know their number's almost up. But gamely they twang their groovy pre-Miles/surf/Byrds modals for Apollo in shades, while singing in somehow appr...
