    Buck Jones would make a good subject for a rock 'n' roll fable as cast by O. Henry: Genie grants struggling young band a wish--say, a mention in some major publication--and a couple of months later, they're still sitting around the garage. Nobody new...

    Reef's herbal remedy - Another sign of the end of the Brit-pop invasion?

    It would seem to say a lot about the strength of the British music renaissance led by Blur and Oasis that a band like Bush, monstrously huge in America, is almost overlooked in England. After years of having American this and Yankee that shoved down ...
