    Rock of Ages

    Kelly Mason, age sixteen, recalls with glee a recent Christian rock concert she attended. "It was the first time I'd been to a Presbyterian church with a mosh pit," she says, "and you'd step out of the pit and there's blood on the floor. And I'm like...

    Give Them a Break

    While some would argue that there are many jackasses in contemporary music, there's only one elephant butt -- or so I believed for more than three years. In 1994 at the now-defunct Stephen Talkhouse in Miami Beach, completely by accident I saw and he...

    Art for Art's Sake

    Although it's buried near the end of a CD EP and presented as a rough demo, "Happy Hour" may be the song that best explains at least part of the creative drive and artistic aesthetic behind the writing of Everclear auteur Art Alexakis. In it the 35-y...

    Jonny on the Spot

    Like a lot of seventeen-year-old boys, Jonny Lang is having trouble waking up. It's almost one o'clock in the afternoon, but Lang sounds groggy, distracted, still lost in dreams. Unlike most seventeen-year-old boys, Lang has a pretty good excuse: He ...

    Horn of Plenty

    Sax player Eric Allison, looking casual yet distinguished in a black jacket, a light-gray collarless shirt with the top button opened, and dark gray slacks, is in a good mood. Heading toward an outdoor table for a pre-gig meal at Sterling Worth Cafe...

    X-tremely Impressive

    To the uninitiated, the X-ecutioners' preference for the term "turntablists" rather than "DJs" might seem an affectation, or might at least come across as a bit uptight. But this winter, on their first American tour, the New York City crew feels vali...

    Various Artists Good Will Hunting (Capitol Records) Most movie soundtrack albums function more as marketing ploys than coherent musical statements. Songs are either tagged on as blatant record-company favors or used to sell a piece of Holly...

    Blue Suede Blues

    We're barely into 1998 and, much like the year that preceded it, death has already tainted its arrival, an unfortunate but inevitable continuance of 1997's massive body count. That year was kicked off by the January 1 death of singer-songwriter and c...

    The Son Remains the Same

    Night falls loudly on a recent Sunday evening in Riverside, the downtown barrio wedged between the Miami River and Flagler Street. The sizzle of frying food and snatches of Spanish-movie dialogue leak from the windows of faded stucco apartments, as d...

    Lighten Up Already

    A few weeks ago I was watching MTV, and Kurt Loder was interviewing Marilyn Manson on the subject of Hanson. The esteemed Mr. Manson, unbloodied for the moment but still sporting that corpse-white glow, had this to say: "Those little boys scare me......

    The Hate Parade

    In their classic soul ballad, the Persuaders persuaded pop fans that "there's a thin line between love and hate." In their fine cover of that classic soul ballad, Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders pretended to agree. But the truth of the matter is th...

    The Return of Art Rock

    Museums tend to be quiet places, but the silence that gripped the galleries of the Lowe Museum on a recent visit seemed out of sync with the exhibition, "It's Only Rock and Roll." This ambitious if ultimately ungainly effort showcases contemporary ar...

    Unsung Heroes

    Who do you think of when you hear the song "Dude (Looks like a Lady)"? Regrettably enough, you probably think of Steven Tyler, the scrawny, fat-lipped lead singer of Aerosmith. If someone asked you who wrote the song, you'd probably assume Tyler. One...
