    My heart's reflection - Genius plus love still equals Yo La Tengo

    His appearance, his name, his voice -- everything about Ira Kaplan seems to belong to a high-school history teacher, or maybe a librarian. Intimidation doesn't even begin to enter into it; at best, the Yo La Tengo singer-guitarist looks to be capable...

    What ails him? - The Cure's Robert Smith reveals the man behind the makeup

    It would be so easy to dismiss The Cure as a band that has outlived its usefulness, that exists long beyond its expiration date. Its best, or at least best-known, moments live in another time, one long since past -- the 1980s, to be precise, back whe...

    Daughter of the chaos - Luscious Jackson's Jill Cuniff explains why it shouldn't be called "news"

    Since Luscious Jackson's third album, Electric Honey, was released last June, singer-bassist Jill Cuniff has spent much of her time traveling around this country and others promoting it -- playing shows and doing interviews all in the name of selling...

    How it should be - Ben Kweller will eventually release another record, but it won't be Sha Sha

    After more than a year, as well as numerous pleas by the Dallas Observer and meetings between label and band, the speculation can finally end: Radish's Sha Sha will not be released. And in the end, it's not so surprising, but a plot twist everyone sa...

    Scene, heard - One Ton brings the discipline; Vogler takes the Azz; Zac makes some corrections

    Scene, heard While we can't say many of the posters on the One Ton Records message board were big fans of our work, we'll admit we're more than a little sorry to see it go away. At the end of last week, the usual threads on the board (formerly l...

    Out There - Morphine

    Morphine The Night (Rykodisc/DreamWorks Records) Believe this: The fact that Morphine singer-bassist Mark Sandman suffered a fatal heart attack on stage last summer in Italy is as important to any review of The Night as the 11 songs on ...

    Darlington/The Huntingtons - Split (Melted Records)

    Maybe the biggest -- or only -- surprise about the latest disc from Chris Darlington (a.k.a. Christy Brigitte), Steve Visneau, and a bassist to be named later is that the group was still around to record it. Since changing its name from Mess, Darling...

    Korn

    Korn I made it all the way through Korn's Issues just once, and even then, I was out of the room for most of it; turns out that's the best way to listen to Korn, from such a distance that you can't actually hear it. A few weeks later, I tried ag...

    Guy Clark

    Guy Clark As time passes and his peers such as Townes Van Zandt pass away, Guy Clark seems more like a sage than like a poet laureate. His voice is the sound of whiskey mixed with cigarette smoke, a pungent concoction with an afterburn that remi...

    The Handsome Family

    The Handsome Family Unlike the Ramones or even Darlington, the Handsome Family are actually a family. The husband-and-wife duo of Brett and Rennie Sparks together write sinister, haunting country songs -- more Appalachia than Nashville, more Edg...

    All-Scars

    Washington, D.C.'s fertile music scene has developed such a reputation for high-quality output (by the likes of Unrest, Fugazi, Lungfish, and Trans Am, to name but a few) that every band from the city benefits from guilt by association. And no band s...

    Good to go, part two - Good Records opens for business

    For a moment, it almost seems as though you've walked into the CD World location on Greenville Avenue and Mockingbird Lane by mistake. There's the burly, bearded Chris Penn behind the counter ringing up a customer, and Carlos Jackson, a quiet Elephan...

    Despite recent claims that no one respects us because we print hearsay and gossip, as far as we know the Smashing Pumpkins will indeed be appearing at Tower Records on Saturday to sign a few autographs. It doesn't look as if Billy Corgan and crew wil...

    Jonathan Richman

    In case you didn't know it, Judah Bauer -- otherwise known as the other guitar player in the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion -- has a band on the side. It doesn't seem to be common knowledge, since at least three pals, music-trivia know-it-alls, all said...

    Good to Go! - From Kid Chaos to collective anarchy, Chad Ferman wants us all to just get along

    Unless you're a local punk enthusiast who perhaps spent some time studying the collective works of Rudolf Rocker and his "anarcho-syndicalism" posse, you most likely have not heard, nor heard of, Chad Ferman. Yet he has done plenty to keep his fragil...

    What happened to him - Bernard Butler sheds his Suede for good with some Friends & Lovers

    Yes, Bernard Butler was once the guitarist for Brit-pop phenomenon Suede. But he's quick to point out that his quantity of post-Suede work is now larger than his output as a member. For Butler it's an irritating association, like constantly being rem...
