    Two-drink minimum - The Enablers take Nino Rota and Dick Dale out for cocktails

    The band plays in the corner--near the front door, just a few feet away from the bar. Sometimes, when the music is quiet enough, they can hear a patron place a drink order even if it's whispered to the bartender; the gurgling of the cappucino machine...

    Short-timers It has always been the great irony that of all the Pacific Northwest bands, Mudhoney historically had received the least attention from radio, from record-buyers, from MTV. Of course, the band demanded it be that way, contemptuously...

    Quite a despair - Neil Young and Pearl Jam create the perfectly imperfect Mirror Ball

    "I think I fucked up. Let me just play the groove for a minute." So says Neil Young at the beginning of "Downtown" before starting, then stopping suddenly, then just as quickly launching head-first into a guitar riff that doesn't sound too differ...

    Shock rock - Hagfish tries to figure out if they're punk, pop, or just plain horny

    Good and messy - Tripping Daisy's Firecracker explodes with riches

    Fading star - Michael Jackson tells HIStory to whoever is left to listen to it

    Dirty, nasty, sweaty, sweet The great irony of Juliana Hatfield's career is that the more confident she grows--as a guitarist, a songwriter, a singer, an adult--the less moving her work becomes. Her debut in 1992, Hey Babe, may have been a work o...
