    Bob Dorough Endures - Pluck Your Magic Twanger, Froggy

    I was having a high old time listening to Bob Dorough's new record, Too Much Coffee Man (Blue Note), which may be his best, when my assistant Elora walked in and exclaimed with a slight interrogatory, "Schoolhouse Rock!?" She had never heard of Dorou...

    Spin Age Blasters

    We've heard all about DJs being the new pop stars, but aside from Fatboy Slim and the occasional housed-up ballad, DJ-created grooves have for years been kept far away from American pop radio, relegated to the late-night mix-show ghetto. So it's a bi...

    21st Century History - John Hammonds Best and Brightest

    Some 20 years ago, Columbia Records, then operating under the benevolent jazzcentric hand of Bruce Lundvall, threw a party at Broadway and 52nd Street, the site of the original Birdland. Many great musicians from the bop era performed in a jam sessio...

    Sticky Little Fingers

    It's tough bearing the burden of other people's dreams: Sometimes the three women of Sleater-Kinney must feel that all the expectations and desires the group has to shoulder have taken on a life of their own, independent of the music itself. When the...

    Age of Discovery - Birds Do It, Bees Do It, Mammals on TV Do It

    The presence below of a few as yet commercially unsuccessful records should not be construed as fashionable dissatisfaction with what's now on the radio (much of whichBackstreet Boys' "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely," Dixie Chicks' "Goodbye Ear...

    Beat It

    The first time I ever heard the phrase "rub one out," my older brother had just returned from a Marine exercise down South. A fellow soldier, my sibling related, had announced in the barracks that he was about to go into the shower and, well, rub one...

    Uriah Careys On

    "Only the young stay young," bleat Uriah Heep on Sonic Origami, the first American-released "new" CD (technically it's a year and a half old, at least in Japan) by the Mortimer Snerds of heavy metal in, oh, about five years. Although the candle burns...

    Calling All Trolls

    With an appearance on South Park under his belt, Dave Grohl wearing his T-shirt onstage, and "Holy Diver" the only experiment that didn't suck Satan's penis on Pat Boone's 1997 lounge-metal CD, Ronnie James Dio could almost be mistaken for hip. So if...

    Hardcore Jollies

    Last year's renaissance of interest in house was based largely on a craving for pleasantness in dance music. With techno and drum'n'bass both locked in grinding hair-shirt minimalism, house's sensuousness beckoned hipsters like a quenching oasis. But...

    Rock and Roll Part 2 1/2

    Read any good kids' books lately? I recommend William Joyce's Rolie Polie Olie, which recounts a day in the life of a spacey young orb and his spherical family, whose "Rolie Polie Rumba Dance was always done in underpants." Lullaby Baxter, the cerebr...

    To answer your question, no, they haven't tried to make "Tubthumping II." Chumbawamba are perfectly aware that most of their listeners think their 10th or so album is their second, and they're beating everyone else to the backlash. The only song on W...
