    Ravaged by the Rave

    "I sat in throw-up," declared a sweaty, somewhat disgusted sixteen-year-old girl who preferred not to give her name. Along with a half-dozen similar girls -- thin, wan, and dazed, yet still smiling -- she waited patiently for a stall in the suffocati...

    Come and Get Your Love

    Nowhere in the owner's manual that came with South Florida music promoter Chrystal Hartigan does it say, "She can't do that." If those words ever did appear, somebody must have torn out the page long ago. And it wouldn't be wise for anyone to scribbl...

    Jeff Buckley Sketches for My Sweetheart the Drunk (Columbia) Late singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley was a rarity in this cynical age, an artist who wasn't too cool to be himself. He had a yearning, confessional style and an uncommon amount of ...

    Neil Finn Try Whistling This (Work) New Zealand singer/guitarist Neil Finn has probably forgotten more aching, beautiful melodies and winning musical hooks than most artists will ever write. Through his career as the angry young sparkplug o...

    Still Can't Hear You, Buddy

    Buddy Guy has been waiting, frustrated yet determined, since the days when record stores carried only vinyl. Waiting for the day he can switch on the radio and hear his voice -- his guitar, too -- on a mainstream, big-city station. Before midnight, p...

    Ani DiFranco, Musician

    Ani DiFranco is a singer, a songwriter, and a producer, but you'd hardly know it from most of the articles that are written about her. "Music?" she squeals in mock terror in response to a question about her primary vocation. "What's that? Nobody ever...

    Could It Be ... Satan?

    Devil worshippers, they said. In their naive enthusiasm, the four Californian musicians were adamant about their devotion to that baddest of all bad boys. Maybe it was just a phase, but from Slayer's earliest incarnation, its members wanted everyone ...

    Smack My Niche Up

    Record companies love to ignite new buying trends. For decades, label execs have relied on blustery hype to spur those trends. When a musical fad begins to show signs of having exhausted its profitability, as grungy alternative rock did a year or two...

    Still Smokin'

    Crabapple, Georgia, isn't exactly a hotbed of musical inspiration. It's not crawling with cutting-edge, college-age scenesters pushing the boundaries of modern rock. It's not flush with fancy country pickers or earthy blues singers. Hell, it's not ev...

    One More Reason to Live

    A lesson from Music Biz 101: Profit margin is not part of the equation when an unknown, greenhorn punk band leaves home for that first cross-country tour. Still, more and more, ambitious young bands are discovering that if they cut out the booking ag...

    Priestly Confessions

    The Congo, by Way of Cuba

    How'd They Do That?

    Skeptical audiences are nothing new to the members of the Cuban sextet Vocal Sampling. When the group starts to perform, concertgoers inevitably fidget in their seats, turning to each other and whispering, one eye on the stage. The group is unfazed b...
