    Still orbiting - Tori Amos goes to venus and back on her new disc, and ends up in Texas

    A friend of mine believes Tori Amos is some sort of cross between the Pied Piper and Frank Sinatra in The Manchurian Candidate. That is, she plants secret buzzwords in her songs that have been helping her recruit an enormous army of young women in th...

    We're in this together - Weathermen Records hammers down success with Nine Inch Nails

    Bruce Goldberg doesn't have much time to talk. Every few minutes, the phone begins beeping incessantly, meaning someone on the other line is placing an order. And if the other line isn't ringing, one of his six full-time employees is trying to get hi...

    Hot damn, Jamboree

    Out There - Pete Townshend

    Pete Townshendt Pete Townshend Live (Platinum Entertainment) Nothing against the aging rocker who turns it down and tones it down as he gets older, especially when that aging rocker is a half-deaf Pete Townshend. Better to stop the rock t...

    Monte Montgomery

    Monte Montgomery There are not too many things in this world that impress me outside of sex acts and Johnny Cash's pulse. But the first time I planted myself and watched singer-songwriter-guitarist Monte Montgomery perform, I was astonished. This ...

    Charlie Daniels Band

    Charlie Daniels Band Believe it or not, there was once a time when Charlie Daniels actually seemed kind of hip. After all, he played on Bob Dylan's Nashville Skyline album, and produced the sublime record Elephant Mountain by the Youngbloods. Then, ...

    Solex

    Solex It's that old question about toy and mannequins and falling trees: Do they talk when no one is looking? Add record stores to that list; Elisabeth Esselink can make them sing well after closing time. The inventory is her instrument, and while a...

    Hamell on Trial

    Hamell on Trial When a band leaves a major label, its first independent release is usually just the band trying poorly, very poorly, to imitate that major label production. Sure, it's the same band, only now it doesn't have any money, and no label r...

    Restless farewell - Bob Dylan, the voice of a generation, to be silenced after Paul Simon tour

    Hibbing, Minnesota -- Maybe this is what he meant by bringing it all back home. On Wednesday, Bob Dylan returned to the town where he spent his childhood, to the place where it all began for a young Robert Allen Zimmerman, to announce his retirement ...

    Giant steps - They Might Be Giants hopes that the revolution will be downloaded

    It's never too late for a comeback in rock and roll: Every has-been is one fluke hit away from being a still-is. Yet even with that in mind, They Might Be Giants is perhaps an unlikely candidate for a resurgence, although it might be too soon to term...

    Someone tell my story - Merle Haggard lives up to his legend, now more than ever

    One of my favorite popular musical tales concerns the writing of "Okie From Muskogee," a song that enmeshed its author, Merle Haggard, within a cultural and political misunderstanding that seems to have lifted only in the last decade or so. As the st...

    Anywhere but here - Lewis doesn't care if it's really good or really bad, as long as it's not middle-of-the-road

    When Brett Tohlen and Matt Beaton say that their band Lewis has been luckier than most, they don't mean to imply that the group hasn't had to struggle. Far from it actually, since the first four years of Lewis' existence were nothing but an uphill cl...

    Chris Cornell - Euphoria Morning (A&M Records)

    Maybe it was inevitable that after years of playing sidekick to Kim Thayil's Led Zeppelin 3-Sabbath Bloody Sabbath riffs, Chris Cornell would decide to turn it down his first time out as Solo Artist. Turn it way down too: Euphoria Morning gets so qui...

    Kim Lenz and the Jaguars - The One and Only (Hightone Records)

    Used to be Kim Lenz and her Jaguars, though I suppose when your music is as static as this all-novelty-all-the-time act, you gotta shake things up somewhere, so why not the name? The surging audience for this local act has more to do with citywide re...

    Sweep the Leg Johnny

    Any band that borrowed its name from a bit of dialogue found in The Karate Kid's climactic fight scene should be, by all rights, easy to define. It's the kind of ironic moniker that would fit right in with the SoCal punk-pop crowd, one of those start...
