    Hey, Pachuco! - Retro rascality or cultural imperialism?

    "Hey, remember me? We met 10 years ago at CBGB's," Syd Straw sings on War and Peace, her new album. In the seven long years between her first and second album, Straw has somehow managed not to be forgotten by the music world. That hardly surprises me...

    The maitre d' of R&B - Elvis T. Busboy drives his soul train into the future

    Up on stage, sliding coolly in a juke joint pas de deux, Elvis T. Busboy is decidedly not your average R&B crooner. With his linebacker's physique, slicked-back Bobby Darin hair and a Mephistophelean goatee that predates slacker fashion, Busboy looks...

    Dream state - Comatheatre lets the audience connect the dots

    The sound is as flowing and wide-open as the tail of a comet, whooshing through a pastiche of found sounds and percussion--some electronic, some organic--sounding for all the world like elevator music from a lift somewhere past Pluto. It's hard ...

    Electric blue - Jim Suhler talks about life and the local bluesman

    Looking at Jim Suhler, it's hard not to be reminded of renegades from high school: the stoners and gearheads had his long brown hair and aquiline nose, their slender frames no guarantee that they wouldn't slap the crap outta you if you crossed them. ...
