    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...

    Marley maul - Yet another "new" disc from everybody's favorite pot smoker

    Probably the only positive thing that can be said about the "new" Bob Marley album, Chant Down Babylon, is that it doesn't include yet another version of "Buffalo Soldier." Assembled by Bob's son Stephen Marley, the disc features digital-age duets be...

    Kid Rock

    Kid Rock When, in the near future, we look back at the state of "alternative music" circa 1999, the big story will most likely be the emergence of (choose one, since all of these "genres" are equally unsatisfying): aggro, rap-rock, or asshole-rock...

    Tripping, falling - Don Berggren remembers the way his son Wes lived... and died

    Wes Berggren and his older brother Andy didn't grow up with many rules and restrictions placed on them. Wes and Andy didn't really need that kind of discipline, and their parents didn't believe in it anyway. Don and Joan Berggren let their sons run a...

    Oh, Mann - Three years and one bad record deal later, Aimee Mann returns -- with two wonderful records

    If Aimee Mann had sold one album for each word written about her, she'd make Alanis Morissette look like the struggling indie artist she probably ought to be. Nobody gets more press for having done so apparently little: one hit a very long time ago (...

    The grass is blue - Writing hits for the Dixie Chicks has given Jim Lauderdale his own wide open space

    The Buzzcocks

    Late to the Buzzcocks camp, I was the fan who knew of the band's impact long before I ever heard "Orgasm Addict" and thus the fan who wonders why the band would bother to hijack its way back into '90s consciousness. The band's original sound is so pr...

    Sister, I'm a poet - After two albums, Rainer Maria can make the time to take its time

    Rainer Maria completes about one new song a month. On the surface, this sounds a bit slow, especially considering that the Madison, Wisconsin, trio has relocated to rural Connecticut where their daily chores include feeding dogs, going to the library...
