    Striking a Nerve - Laurie Anderson riffs on fame, death, and the political landscape

    There's a moment on Laurie Anderson's most recent album, last year's portentous and unnerving Bright Red, when her velvety sage's voice breaks out of its cool, ironic mode and challenges the very universe. In "Love Among the Sailors," a funereal piec...

    Case dismissed - Judge tells the Nightcaps that ZZ Top aren't "copycats"

    In the end, the members of the Nightcaps weren't just seeking money when they picked their legal fight with ZZ Top. They wanted some respect, some credit--someone to acknowledge that 20 years ago, ZZ Top stole their one small claim to Texas music fam...

    Trouble blues - Buddy Guy doesn't want money or fame, just a little respect

    Noise annoys - Compilation of "experimental music" skirts the line between art and nausea

    Music does not, of course, mean the same thing to all people. To some, it implies the sweet sounds of acoustic guitars and confessional lyrics or the strains of violins or the foreign rhythms of Africa or the Middle East; to others, the term conjures...
