    Butta-Knife Love

    One need look no further than the title of OutKast's 1994 debut to see the influence of Isaac Hayes on Atlanta's Dungeon Family (OutKast, Goodie Mob, Witchdoctor, et al.). 'Kast's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik was an obvious nod to spreading Hayes'...

    The Go-Betweens

    This is us as a Seventies band," Robert Forster writes in the liner notes for the Go-Betweens' 78 'til 79 The Lost Album, a collection of early studio and home recordings. What he means, to be exact, is an ingenuous, bare-bones '70s pop banda surpri...

    Every Bit Counts

    The notorious thing about the "college rock" I grew up on, over a decade ago, the same time Ben Folds was gestating in the university nexus of Chapel Hill, was that college kids by and large hated it. Too willfully marginal: too drop-out. Ben Folds F...

    Conjure Woman

    I have always found it slightly unsettling that so many of my parents' generation christened my male peers Miles. It is no easy invocation. Some may even call it a curse. Or at least a weight. Miles is beyond complicated, beyond icon, beyond genius...

    Border Crossings

    A significant pleasure of wallowing in Sunday's sold-out Bang on a Can marathon at the Henry Street Settlement lay in mapping out the resonances that linked the 23 works (chosen from 400 submissions) performed over eight hours (you do the math). The ...

    The Right Crowd

    It wasn't my most memorable Merle Haggard concert. That honor goes to the one in the late '60s where I heard him debut "Okie From Muskogee" to a crowd of 2000 well-groomed white people, and, having the only shoulder-length hair in view, felt it prude...

    Jazzmen Bloweth

    Resembling one of those Blue Note collections Starbucks sells as a side dish to cappuccino and biscotti, Side Man: Jazz Classics From the Broadway Play epitomizes everything spurious about a show that epitomizes everything spurious about contemporary...

    The Long-Playing Duke

    Always when writing about Duke Ellington there is the temptation to become a listmaker. Because once you get past the generalities and charge joyfully into the specifics, you find yourself in a Borgesian labyrinth no less alluring to an Ellingtonian ...

    Keely Smith

    For a few months now, Keely Smith's new CD, Keely Sings Sinatra, has been showing up at collector shows such as the ones in Amityville and White Plains, and fans of classic pop vocals have been snapping it up. The hitch is that it hasn't been officia...

    Respect Due

    "This is not another 'Fuck Tha Police' here," declared Rico Wade of Organized Noize at the outset of Friday's Hip Hop for Respect recording session. "I know how to make a pop single, and I want this song to move people." Brought together by Black Sta...

    Punkest Band Around

    Dear Suh: I really do not want this band on my tour no more. They cannot jam worth a damn on "Free Bird" at the end of the night, and the fiddle thing is scaring the hell out of my drunk bass player Yours, Ronnie All right! You can turn in my To...

    Prodigy Present the Dirtchamber Sessions Volume One

    I'd bet the keys to my Lincoln Navigator that if I gave any schmo off the street a crate of records, a mixer, and two turntables, he could come up with a funky feast for the senses. Which is what I love about mix tapes, hip-hop or otherwise, in the f...

    Half and Half

    Hip hop has busted pop music open so wide in the past year or two that for everyone but a diminishing minority of aging and/or oddball fans, finding extraordinary casual pleasure in it has become almost a routine. Maybe that's why it took me a few mo...

    Gettin Slippy Wit It

    Underworld's got a massive cult following in the rave world, but with everyone I know, I have to go through the whole "Well, you know that movie Trainspotting?" (Sometimes they do.) "You remember there's music playing when he takes the drug-deal mone...

    Woman's Work

    In 1998, The New York Times ran a series of articles about women in Muslim countries, including Islamic Africa, showing how devout Muslim women were struggling for social parity in traditionally restrictive cultures. Coincidentally, 1998 was also the...

    Sounds of Known Origin

    Long before the Latin Playboys were imaginable, Los Lobos rode into the rock mainstream on a myth. They were "just another band from East L.A.," the title of their self- released debut LP proclaimed in 1978, and five years later their coming-out EP o...

    Uncle Dans Bands - Knockoff Singles: Chips off the Old Block?

    Sometimes the only way to get what you want is to buy something else. That's what Uncle Dan taught me. He's quite a guy, if not quite a guy. Actually, he's the spirit of giving (and taking), a sport and a pastime. "Uncle Dan" is the official trade ...
