    Trash: The God That Failed

    Wuclear Fission - A Nutcase and a Point Guard Rise Above Wu-Tangs Solo Overkill

    The stupidest, greatest, lovingest, most problematic-yet-simple moment in pop last year was a guy not content to be called Ol' Dirty Bastard letting it all hang out. "Big Baby Jesus I can't wait/Nigga fuck that I can't wait," he bugle-slurred over a ...

    Worth 1000 Words (and Heres 300)

    The rivalry between Filter frontman Richard Patrick and his former employer, Trent Reznor, may well result in a surreptitious reconciliation that becomes the subject of a VH1 telefilm. In the meantime, it's "Take a Picture" that's repositioned Filter...

    Master of Mugham

    The gradual breakup of the Soviet Union brought to world consciousness a number of composers like Gubaidulina and Ustvolskaya, who, previously barred from using Western "decadent" and "formalist" methods, were now rapidly exploring a 20th-century mod...

    Tombstone Blues

    They were playing Warren Zevon in the pizza joint where I sat nursing a Chinese cola: a little "Mohammed's Radio" in the afternoon to help digest your shrimp-and-anchovy special. A few more of his toe-tapping near-hits wafted from the speakers, 20-ye...

    Swede Surrender

    Truth be told, the chatter of the fanzine dumbigentsia was almost enough to keep me from listening to the Hellacopters' Grande Rock for months. Don't know about you, but the "Hail-hail-it-sounds-like-the-Stooges-MC5-Detroit-rock-under-ground" shtic...
