    The Artists Formerly Known as Each Other (Almost)

    In response to a heated argument, I once proffered a (borderline obsessive) theory called "Two Degrees From Prince." My hypothesis: Even if a person dislikes Prince, he or she is a fan of someone who loves him. Essentially, I claimed, all musicians a...

    The Passing of the Mic

    This isn't a generation-gap piece, really. I ain't even 30. But a lot of folks ain't authentically feeling Rakim Allah; they just takin' the "experts' " word on it. So dig this. The Troopers were a crew rollin' way uptown in the Bronx in the mid '8...

    The Unasaunders Manifesto

    About 10 years ago, while still an ink-stained newspaper wretch, I received a photo custom-framed by sometime Angry Samoan (and future sometime Voice critic) Metal Mike Saunders, featuring Russ Meyer and a young woman in a pink leotard. Superiors sei...

    Ding! Dong! The Witch Is Dead - Modernism Loses Its Grip as the Odometer Turns Over

    May I be the only classical music critic in town to welcome the new century with open arms? Hurrah! Hurrah! Twentieth-century music is dead. Uh-oh: I've just denounced what I'm supposed to pledge allegiance to. Of course, there were actually two 20...

    Back to His Roots Howe Gelb is one of those guys you assume must have been an original punk, because he's unsettling to behold when not styled punk at all (Zappa-ish hair-mustache-goatee with decidedly unindie silver necklace), and because when he...

    Total Systems Failure

    As anybody who has flipped past Rolling Stone's editorial page to read their business section recently can attest, popular music is undergoing what those in the know like to call "really something." All the record company people who signed the good i...

    Sample My Pit Bull

    What follows is extraneous: outtakes and stray threads from my DMX feature in the new GQ. The dictates of celebrity profilesestablishing scene, nut graph, restatement of well-known detailsoften forbid space for loose factoids, minor characters, and...

    Death Rock 2000

    In the opening scene of Scarface, we are shown a successful man; we know he is successful because he has just given a party of opulent proportions and because he is called Big Louie. Through some monstrous lack of caution, he permits himself to be al...

    Neil Hannon Loads Up His Library Card

    The Divine Comedy is Neil Hannon, a 29-year-old Londonderry Irishman whose chutzpah in naming himself after an immortal literary masterpiece written by an Italian poet from the 14th century is nothing compared to his life's goal, which is to complete...

    How to Hear a Face

    That music is a language of logic is a fact too much emphasized by academics and too little recognized by the average music lover. No one but a pedant really cares whether a symphony drops to the subdominant key in the coda, but it does exert an infl...

    Let's Get Busy in Hawaiian - 100 Years of Ragged Beats and Cheap Tunes

    The decade is a dandy organizing devicea convenient construct. Generalize a little? Why sure. The most important thing to happen to pop in the '90s was a tenfold increase in the amount of music recorded. That's the factoid bandied about, anywayI've...

    Time Bandits

    ''Twentieth century's over. No more Mr. Nice Guy.'' Marc Ribot's getting tough, but with whom? Not the New Year's Eve crowd for the triple bill at Tonic. With Cubanos Postizos, he's pure crowd pleaser. Hardly 30 seconds of a tune go by before he rips...

    Welcome Home To The Jungle

    Confession: When I started buying jungle records three years ago, every other purchase was marked with a "jump up" record associated with Aphrodite. The first time I ever attempted to mix, my buddy Brian pulled two singles from Aphrodite's own Urban ...

    Rock You Like a Piece of Meat

    From the Scorpions' early-'70s hippie-mush origins, through mid-'80s arena-metal stardom, to 1999's techno-rocking Eye II Eye, two things have remained constant. The hair may be gone now, but Rudi Schenker's guitar playing has never been less than so...

    Ay Caramba!

    More often than not, soundtracks are sonic non sequiturs; the music usually doesn't work out of context. Stripped of their Lower East Side seediness and teen melodrama, songs from Rent or Dawson's Creek border on empty histrionics. But The Simpsons' ...

    Bitches Brew

    I'm trying to reconcile my position as a hip-hop womanist and mother (of a lyric-loving daughter, no less, who's been living up to her Malian name, Djali) with the unconditional love I've developed for that nigga Dr. Dre's (almost) perfectly sequence...
