    Cuba's Past Is Present

    Old Cuban music never dies, it just gets reissued. Blame it in part on the success of the 1997 Grammy Award-winner Buena Vista Social Club, but remastered or re-recorded CDs of all manner of Cuban oldies keep on coming. In 1998 record companies strip...

    Kissing Ass

    When the Rolling Stones staged the first genuine rock-and-roll circus in 1968, they distributed gold-embossed metallic tickets to the members of their fan club, fed them, gave them twenty hours of music, clowns, and amusements, and then arranged for ...

    Home Is Where the Art Is

    Al Galvez, the singer/guitarist/songwriter of A Kite Is a Victim, sits at a candlelit table in a bar on Coconut Grove's Miami Marina just as night has fallen. A breeze stirs up the waves and rocks the boats docked in the distance. Across a patch of g...

    Tonight We're Gonna Market Like It's 1999

    Bring Back That Sunny Day

    Sunny Day Real Estate is less a band than a psychodrama. Decisions aren't just made; they're agonized over. Relationships don't simply end; they shatter. Reunions aren't merely satisfying; they're life altering. With these guys there are no half meas...

    Hello, Old Friend

    It's weird to think that it's taken this long for the box set community to get around to John Lennon. Yet it has been eighteen years this week since he was gunned down in front of his apartment in New York City. His recording career from the time he ...

    Kings of Rhyme

    When I was eleven years old, my older brother gave me a tape that changed everything I thought I knew about music. The tape was called King of Rock, and it was the second album by the rap group Run-D.M.C. I thought I was pretty hip for an eleven year...

    Not Exactly Straight Punk

    Joe "Queer" King doesn't think it's weird for a 37-year-old man to perform songs with titles like "Ursula Finally Has Tits." King -- songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist for New Hampshire's the Queers -- is simply another foul-mouthed punk rocker look...

    Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound

    Hank Williams was a drunk, a mean drunk who died at age 29 in the back seat of a Cadillac. He was a semiliterate plagiarist, a whoremonger, a brawler, and an egomaniac. He was a stingy manager of top-flight musicians and a notoriously unreliable empl...
