    Better Dead Than Read

    Just like the year's new records, 1998's rock-and-roll reading found small pleasures in unexpected places, while the much-touted "big events" were ushered in with a resounding plop that echoed throughout the lavatory. As we've been doing every year s...

    Rock 101 Revisited

    Yeah, sure, if you actually remember the Sixties you weren't really there. True for any era worth remembering. But as long as the person doing the retelling has some idea of what's important, the results should be okay. It takes real talent to make s...

    True Rhymes

    The new Busta Rhymes album arrived in stores with the fanfare traditionally reserved for a royal wedding. Titled ELE (it stands for Extinction Level Event, and it's nicked from the comet-meets-Earth film Deep Impact) Busta's third album finds the fla...

    Deadmeat Puppet

    The phone is no friend of Curt Kirkwood. Too often, the tidings it bears are foul. He calls them "incomings from Tempe." They go like this: Your brother's wife overdosed this morning; She's dead. Your brother got busted again last night, an...

    The Beat Surrender

    It's 2:00 a.m. at Zanzibar. The club's few attempts at exotic decor: a totem-pole-like wooden sculpture with carved faces, a couple of bar stools covered in zebra-striped upholstery, and two banners suspended from the ceiling, one depicting a caricat...

    Grown Up

    It seems like forever ago that R.E.M emerged from Athens, Georgia, looking like art-school students who drove pickups to class (except for Michael Stipe, who probably rode his bike). What has it been now, seventeen years, since the first single? How ...
