    38 Special

    I can hear you/Can you hear me?" Michael Stipe sang on the first R.E.M. album, and he's probably spent a chunk of the past 15 years wishing he'd kept his pretty mouth shut. Few rock stars have been mind-read and decoded over the years like Stipe, the...

    Still Standing

    Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man" first seared the country charts 30 years ago this month, Elton John sings it on the current Tammy Wynette Remembered (Asylum), and there would seem to be no more relevant song in America today. In 1992, of course,...

    F(reakiness) M

    In hip-hop terminology, though it dates back much further, "country" means unsophisticated, backward, i.e. Not From New York. Chris Rock once slagged the Atlanta bassfest "MyBabyDaddy" as the most "ignorant, country shit" he'd ever heard. And he was ...

    The Other Lode

    Thrown in two large spaces--one located "under the tressell" [sic], the other "around the box"--joined solely by a single small doorway (remember Maxwell's Demon?), Other Music's densely packed Web-launch party at the Chelsea Arts Building last Satur...

    Drip, Drip, Drip

    To be an opera composer, Aaron Copland wrote, "The urge has to be so strong that because of some inner drive, little else in music attracts you--and then you are an honest-to-God opera composer. I am not such." My generation doesn't believe it. Opera...

    Heavy Cream

    In the current view, Burt Bacharach is a kind of silver-haired lava lamp, a symbol for a glorious era, unspecified and unblemished, that Americans love to see as their past. Filmmakers have exploited these associations, knowing that in its language, ...

    R.O.C.K. in the USA

    The history of pop music goes marching by in 18-month segments, generations that last two years, epochs that barely fill half a decade of teenage time, in other words. So it is that this collection manages a double refraction of the past: the era of ...

    Weill Style

    It's more and more obvious how necessary the American Symphony Orchestra and its conductor, Leon Bot stein, are to New York's art-music life. While the New York Philharmonic launches its seasons with all the Brahms or Beethoven symphonies, and four-f...

    Yeah, Yeah, NO!

    Governor Pataki has been exploiting the Beatles in a campaign commercial lately. It opens with a grainy black-and-white photo of a crowd of teens, as a "Love Me Do"-type backbeat (with a harmonica blowing different notes than the original) plays i...

    The Long Distance Soulster

    For as long as Luther has sufficed to separate Mr. Vandross from all others bearing his name he has been the modern male soul singer, possibly the last of a disappearing breed in a profession already rife with high risk and high mortality. The histor...

    Meet the Counselors

    A rock 'n' roll show, for us, is a celebratory experience," said the unbearably revivalistic drummer-singer of the opening band Cowboy Mouth last Wednesday. In other words, cheer me and you'll have a good time. Dude, how about coming up with somethin...

    Hard Bop

    Dwayne Burno had an awed look on his face for most of the second set Thursday night at the Vanguard. He was stationed right behind his boss, Roy Haynes, and the drummer's every flam and fillip made the bassist wince: "Ooh, that shit's nasty." The 72-...

    Nothing's Shocking

    My wife didn't quite know what to say as I set off for the ''Family Values'' Tour. Have a good time? Get real. Good luck? No kidding. Then I had an idea: ''Wish that nobody hits me.'' And so it was to be. As I gazed down upon the separately tickete...

    Do for Self

    As De La Soul tried to tell us on their last album, there is a widening philosophical schism between rap music's ''cash rules everything around me'' pragmatists and its dreamers. On Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star, the Native Tongue-anointed duo...

    Hello Dolly

    The Lee Ann Womack fairy tale has problems. First and foremost, it hasn't delivered big money: just gold, not the multiplatinum of early expectations. Second, you-all haven't heard it. Here it is, then. Once upon a time in Texas, a part-time countr...

    Here are the pictures: The gory carcass of a cow sags from two iron hooks. A blindfolded man strapped to a cross is being nestled into the carcass's chest cavity, his white robe soaked with bovine blood. Other men lie across him, held in place by rop...

    Easy Does It - Club Pop's Soothing Internationalism

    For the adepts of the hybrid known as club pop, the trick is to integrate digital innovations while somehow holding on to human virtues like humor, imagination, and warmth--not to mention sex that involves actual physical contact. Taking easy listeni...

    If She Makes You Happy

    I wish women singer-songwriters let themselves be fast, funny, and funky more often, and that might explain why Sheryl Crow makes me wince less than any other female folkie out there right now. She's upscale, up-to-date, and down-to-earth, she's got ...

    Your Right To Party

    "Okay folks, I've had a couple of suggestions for how to deal with this. Maybe we could take a vote?" a flustered Captain John Codiglia of the Manhattan South Task Force announced over a bullhorn last Sunday, hoping to cajole the 400 or so boisterous...
