    Out Here - Pleasant Grove

    Pleasant Grove Pleasant Grove (Last Beat Records) Pleasant Grove's long-time-coming debut is seven songs strong, but it could be pared down to just one -- the haunting "Nothing This Beautiful" -- and remain one of the most compelling reco...

    Billy Joel

    Billy Joel I've seen Billy Joel in concert twice -- once when I didn't know any better (like, oh, Randy Newman and Richard Thompson and Paul Simon), once when I did. And both shows were pretty tolerable and maybe downright enjoyable, if only becau...

    Z.Z. Top

    Z.Z. Top Word on the street had it that XXX was the Top's best record since God knows when. Christ, word on the street must have come from the concrete, because this thing couldn't make an impression on a pillow. Aw, seriously, it ain't that bad -...

    Pink panthers - Is there such a thing as a local supergroup? Ask Pinkston.

    Calling Pinkston a new band is a bit of a misnomer, even though it hasn't yet been a year since the quartet's first show. Sure, that was Pinkston's first show together, but it wasn't each member's first ever -- not by a long shot. Pinkston is a band ...

    Wu-Tang forever? - U-God's solo album is only the latest in a series of Wu-Tang Clan misfires

    When the Wu-Tang Clan released its first single, 1993's "Protect Ya Neck," Notorious B.I.G. was still a chubby crack dealer and hip-hop was several years away from civil war. Everyone was high on The Chronic, which had been released the year before: ...

    Pop smeared - Japan is the new capital of disposable pop

    Quick, name five Japanese bands. Chances are, some of the more intense music nuts out there might name-check the Boredoms, Pizzicato Five, and Shonen Knife, and some might even recognize Melt-Banana or Guitar Wolf. But the reality of Japanese pop mus...

    Pickin' a winner - CMH Records has given '80s faves a musical makeover, whether you like it or not

    Half of my enjoyment of music stems from listening without knowing whether or not I'm going to hate something, while many people are like radio programmers who just want the hits and rarely stray from a chosen format. And unlike most folks, I still o...

    Lounging around - The Enablers look for a new home

    For a while, it looked as though the death of the Dark Room -- the Green Room's performance space -- would mean the death of The Enablers. After all, the band had been more of a fixture there than the stage, playing every Wednesday for three years. T...

    Scene, heard - Bad mouthing good bods; Keeping up with the Buck Joneses; the Broose is loose; Tim DeLaughter speaks; And much more

    Even when we don't mean to, we can't help causing trouble; guess it's just in our nature. For example, last week's Street Beat featured an item on Crash Vinyl and its new CD, Precious Platinum. It was a fairly innocuous story that mentioned the two g...

    Out Here - The Mag Seven 12Lb. Test

    Out There - Metallica

    Metallica S & M (Elektra Records) If Load and Re-Load and an album full of Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Thin Lizzy covers (last year's Garage Inc.) didn't succeed in putting Metallica over as just another Rock Band, then this surely wil...

    G. Love and Special Sauce

    Bands like G. Love and Special Sauce ain't so special now, as though they ever were. Love and the boys are just another blues-folk-rap trio, a combo too often heard in the form of mediocre white guys fumbling for grace, soul, and wit. It's a concept ...

    Moby

    Moby (Richard Hall) is a hard guy to figure out. Over the course of his career, he has followed a variety of different musical muses and professed a range of beliefs. He says he's a follower of Christ and often writes songs that indirectly praise God...

    Insane Clown Posse

    You couldn't invent a better parody of the brain-dead, testosterone-crazed, wanna-be hip-hop buffoonery that has captured the video-damaged imaginations of the Musicland-shopping-mall suburban pubescentry circa the millennium. Which doesn't mean that...

    Net profits - Online music distributors are banking on indie musicians' lack of business savvy

    The Internet is a capitalist's dream come true: Slap up a virtual storefront, talk someone into giving you a product to sell, then sit back and watch the dollars roll in. Everyone's getting involved -- "dot-com" is almost as ubiquitous as "the" these...

    Black on the inside - Nocturne learns a new four-letter word

    Call the members of Nocturne "industrial." Call them "hard rock" or "dark wave," whatever that is. Just don't call them Goth -- not to their faces anyway. Pretty much anything else is fine with the group; they're not sure what they are yet, but they ...

    Viva la Vinyl - Crash Vinyl is more than just a gimmick

    Occasionally when Crash Vinyl performs, the band is joined onstage by a pair of young women in bright-colored wigs and tight leather hot pants. The girls writhe around at the front of the stage, much to the delight of the audience -- well, most of it...
