    Wizards of Wu - How Wu-Tang Clan won the world

    The world of hip-hop is an immensely competitive battle for the spotlight, where artists have the life spans of a dealer on the streets--sometimes literally. It is, in fact, the same street game many were born into, just taken to a higher level. A ra...

    Austin's loss - A new CD and a move to L.A. herald a career boost for Denny Freeman

    Guitars used to be less giving than they are now. Today, stacked amps and store-bought effects can help you make a great and passionate din, while in olden times you actually had to know how to play one in order to do that. Those were the days th...

    Pilgrims at rest - Barry Kooda tries to mend a broken heart

    Leave it to the man who wrote a song called "I'm Sorry I Killed You"--mainly "'cause now I am in jail," although the protagonist (if that's the right word) finds some solace at making goo-goo eyes at the victim's underage sister--to pick up and get o...

    Roadshows - A lighter shade of prayer

    Although Athens-based Vigilantes of Love leader Bill Mallonee says that his musical goal is "Bible study that rocks," don't lump VOL in with the tepid majority of contemporary Christian rock. For one thing, Mallonee usually has his tongue slightly in...

    Camelot in 4/4 time - A golden age in Dallas jazz turns 40

    It doesn't look like much now--just another run-down building in a neighborhood gone to seed, where flat-black burglar bars seem to have spread across doors and windows like mildew, and by noon clots of the glassy-eyed have staked out the favorable c...

    Rave new world - Tom Faulkner explores his musical horizons

    History abounds with the sort of mythical real estate that inspires song: Oz, Atlantis, heaven and hell, even Atlantic City. Unto each has been written some form of musical tribute or another, from the dope-heavy "Way down below the ocean" stanza dur...

    Power lines - Jimmy Webb wrote one of the greatest songs ever, but don't tell him that

    Jimmy Webb, the man who wrote one of the greatest songs of all time, does not know when he will be able to write again. He wants to--"with a vengeance," he insists--but he's afraid he might not have it in him right now. Webb has spent so long writing...

    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 ...

    BJ's Rocket - A year after some tasty national press, Buck Jones releases its second album

    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...
