    Even Major Labels Get the Blues

    "The blues is alright" goes the refrain of the anthem of the same name, a regional Southern hit back in the mid-Eighties for its writer, vocalist/guitarist Little Milton Campbell, a 40-year veteran of the blues club circuit. The song has become Milto...

    Styx and Groans

    This is going to be difficult for me -- for all of us, I expect -- because this isn't going to be some misty recollection, but rather the dredging up of a very specific and humiliating sliver of the past. Which means what we're dealing with is, in es...

    Five Variations on a Theme by Barry White

    Your First, Your Last, Your Everything: Four years ago, before his umpteenth comeback, before his 1994 The Icon Is Love album and its "Practice What You Preach" single both went to number one on the R&B charts, Barry White, the grand pooh-bah of le m...

    Spunky Junkies

    Michael Timmins readily acknowledges the irony surrounding the biggest hit to date by the Cowboy Junkies, the Canadian group for which he serves as guitarist and songwriter. Said hit -- a mournful cover of the Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane" -- cam...

    The Specials Today's Specials (Virgin/Kuff) You can't say the time isn't right for the triumphant return of the Specials, the English group that way back in the late Seventies combined punk's rant-and-roll dynamics with the slippery grooves...

    The Greening of Amanda

    A lot of things seem weird to Amanda Green. The 24-year-old singer/songwriter uses the word a lot to describe, in general, her personal life and, in particular, the confluence of professional events ranging from her first club gig last August (a solo...

    Rhymes of Passion

    "It's kinda hectic, man," says Wyclef "Clef" Jean, rapper, songwriter, and sonic engineer for the Fugees. "A lot of things are going on." And, Jean should have added, those things are pretty damn nice A the kinds of things that happen only to a b...

    A New Tale to Tell

    Sturm and Clang

    Scattered throughout the songs of Archers of Loaf are moments when you'd swear everything will explode in a discordant burst -- when the tension builds to a point where it threatens to rend the quartet into a thousand pieces of bone and flesh, sprayi...

    Buddy System

    The instrument seems such a natural fit in his large, graceful hands that it's hard to imagine a time when Buddy Guy wasn't playing the guitar. Truth is, the 59-year-old blues legend had no idea what a guitar was as a child. "I grew up on a farm near...

    Love Hurts

    Mike Boudet doesn't like talking about Enjoy the Cancer, the EP he has self-released under the name Lounge Act. He says it makes him uncomfortable, and on a recent afternoon at Tapeworm, the Miami studio Boudet co-owns, he's clearly ill at ease. The ...

    Favorite Thing

    More than any other group that emerged during the Amerindie boom of the early Eighties, the Replacements summarized everything that I had ever loved about rock and roll. R.E.M. was great, but I always found Michael Stipe to be an infuriatingly obtuse...

    In a cockfighting-arena-turned-nightclub perched on a sheer cliff, high on a mountain overlooking Port-au-Prince, the eleven members of Kanpech crowd on-stage on a warm Sunday night in late March. Frederic "Fredo" Pierre Louis, the band's cherub-face...

    The artistic demise of Rod Stewart is a cataclysmic event in rock and roll history, a betrayal of his abilities and potential that has been written about many times by many esteemed rock scribes. No piece of criticism, however, better illustrates the...
