    The Dropkick Murphys are wild colonial boys bred and buttered in Boston, a seven-man band who've fleshed out their trad-punk stomp with bagpipes and tin whistle and mandolin and a bogload of Oi!-rish shtick. They're protgs of Rancid's Lars Frederik...

    Two Worlds Apart

    Though it's nearly eight years old, boasts a Mercury Prize winner in Roni Size, and has infiltrated pop culture via car commercials, drum'n'bass still suffers from a giant insecurity complex. Briefly a golden child in the mid '90s, when Goldie, LTJ B...

    Who Let the Dogg Out?

    Boy Toys

    As anyone who has ever wandered into a guitar store especially knows, boys love their toys. Watch the acne-plagued teenager's eyes close and lips part as he grasps a Fender Strat in his grubby mitts; see the bulge in his pants rise as he twiddles som...

    Wanna Shake Your Tree

    The lore of Peaches and Chilly Gonzales is rich but brief, mainly because they've been "Peaches" and "Gonzales" for just a few years. Peaches began her musical career 12 years ago as a singer in the Canadian folk band Mermaid Hotel; she also made a n...

    Eat a Lot of Peaches

    There's a certain kind of audacious lyric that you have to earn to pull off: cringeworthy on its own, devastating in context. The Birthday Party's "I tied off/Fuckin' wings burst out my back" is one example, Prince's "Your face is jammin'/Your body's...

    Bella Donnas

    The Donnas have grown up. The Donnas rock. The Donnas are God. Well, maybe not the latter (a strictly Beatles entitlement), but you get the idea. And they've already lasted longer than most of the hairspray bands they love so much did in the '80s. In...

    The Soft Boys

    Whether couched in aesthete foppery, geek DIY-ism, or mousse-and-eyeliner genderfuck, synth pop has never been a particularly masculine preserve. Tim Benton, lead singer of London trio Baxendale, understands and even cherishes the genre's inescapabl...

    Fester and Carbuncle

    The beating down of insufficiently motivated rabble with standing waves of steely humming noise is one of the grand traditions of metal. As a long-term strategy, it's square with the benchmark formula of Manowar, i.e., create an ideology that infidel...

    Riffs Are Not Dead

    I've seen the turntables and the damage done. Most juveniles this past holiday season, once they got over Dad not cashing in his pension to buy a PlayStation2 on eBay, probably set their sights on some wheels of steel wrapped in ribbon. I wasn't born...

    It's not too far-fetched, in retrospect, to call Ludacris this year's unofficial Super Bowl rapper. Not just because sports and sex rank dead even on the former scholastic athlete's pleasure scale (why else would he want to get it on at the 50-yard ...
