    Lots of well-produced, spiffily packaged CDs make up the bulk of this month's belated local-music roundup. Still, my favorite thing this time out is a low-fi, low-budget tape with a handmade cover. What does that mean? I don't know, but it sure makes...

    Nirvana From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah (DGC) I'd finally reached a point where I could listen to Nirvana and think only "This is a cool song," rather than "This guy is dead." And now, along comes more new "product" -- an industry ter...

    A Monster Mishmash

    Every great holiday has a great anthem, and for better or worse Halloween has "Monster Mash," a catchy little novelty item that made Bobby "Boris" Pickett a one-hit wonder when it reached No. 1 in 1962. As novelties go, Pickett's hit ain't bad: In a ...

    Frankly Speaking

    There's a telling photograph tucked inside the lyric booklet of Brian Franklin's new CD Stir Fried World. Granted, the thumb-size picture, taken by his father when Franklin was seven years old and his family lived in New York, doesn't show much, just...

    Amos 'n' Indulgence

    Let me make a confession: I am a cryer. I hate to admit it, since I'd much rather come off as a stoic. Not one to shed many tears over my own small misfortunes, I'm an enthusiastic, empathetic cryer. Emotional reunions grab me by the tear ducts, as d...

    Sublime Sublime (Gasoline Alley/MCA) No fan of the hyperactive, macho ska-punk slop that's seemingly everywhere these days, I avoided Sublime's MCA debut in spite of the glowing reviews and despite my empathy for the group, on whom traged...
