    Battle stations, damage control - Jeru the Damaja aims to save rap from itself

    Most '90s celebrities understand that baring their souls comes with the territory. Your average personality mag is brimming with profiles of famous people who disclose their deepest, darkest secrets as casually as they cash their royalty checks--and ...

    Ain't life pop? - Grand Street Cryers enter Robinson-Wood's hum-along sweepstakes

    Tim Locke, felled by the season's latest and nearly ubiquitous strain of flu, still manages to sound excited through the coughing and sniffling. Locke is the lead vocalist, guitarist, and main muse behind Grand Street Cryers, the Dallas pop quintet t...

    Stylistic etouffee - Hippie Gumbo gets it right

    When Rick Reid's will-to-Zydeco--honed in earlier bands Zydeco Faux Pas, then the Zydeco Swamptones--collided with the pop/cover-band tendencies of the Joybangers last summer, a new and wonderful thing was born: the band Hippie Gumbo. Perhaps it was ...

    Still flying - High note king Maynard Ferguson rules the road

    He was an avatar of fusions to come, a trumpet man whose high-C-over-C wailings presaged the mix of rock heroics and jazz technique that would later give birth to such acts as Blood, Sweat and Tears and Chicago, and then a thousand more. When he play...

    When is a bill not a bill? - When it's a recommendation, but still: watch out

    Contrary to a report in Tuesday, January 14's Austin American-Statesman, a recommendation to restrict the presence of anyone under 21 in establishments that sell alcohol is not a bill, but that still doesn't mean that club owners, club-goers, and mus...

    Farther along - Emmylou Harris has a new boxed set, but she won't be trapped by that cardboard tombstone

    She does not stick out in the dilapidated lobby of Los Angeles' Farmer's Daughter Motel on Fairfax, just across the street from the restaurants and product bins of the Farmer's Market. Her famous long hair--black with road-map streaks of gray running...

    Give peace a chance - The sound of the urban night comes from a most unlikely place

    Spirit of '96 - Last year showed pop still has more than a ghost of a chance

    How do you solve a problem like this introduction? How do you catch a cloud and pin it down? 1996 was many things--a flibbertigibbet, a will o' the wisp, a clown--but more than anything for music, it was a time of transition. With "alternative" rock ...

    It was a very good year - 1996 lived up to its predecessor while presaging great things to come

    If 1995 was the year of the umpteenth British Invasion (Oasis, Blur, etc.) and the domination of the true underground by the amazing cross-pollinations of dance music, 1996 wasn't far behind in brilliance. In '96, the feeling that pop music still has...
