    The Return of Superfly

    Today's hard-core rappers are in a difficult position. Many of them achieved success via exciting accounts of drinking, drugging, dealing, whoring and homicide that they defended by claiming the tales were simply reflections of the hard realities in ...

    Pillow Talk - Cornershop's East/West diplomacy is as soothing as it is sophisticated

    Labor of Love - For Austin's Sixteen Deluxe, fun and hard work are one and the same

    Texas-tourism flacks like to call Austin the live music capital of the world, but the city's learn-as-you-gig musical ethos suggests that "live rehearsal capital of the world" might be a better description. Yet on this Friday night, the members of th...

    Now They're Cooking

    When the Moog Cookbook was invited to play live on MTV's Week in Rock, band members Uli Nomi and Meco Eno -- a.k.a. Roger Manning and Brian Kehew -- didn't see any drawbacks to accepting, even though it would mark their first-ever concert appearance....

    Uncommon Cause

    At times, Consolidated seem less like a band than a cause-waving freak show. The quasi-militant San Francisco Bay-area trio is, quite literally, submerged in its own anarchic intentions. Tops among the group's laundry list of causes: animal rights, v...

    No Fooling Around - Success has been anything but a cinch for Atticus Finch

    Cry Tough - Essential bassist Tommy Shannon hangs in there

    Tupelo's Curse

    Anyone who follows popular music knows that success is often a matter of timing. Yesterday's cool, after all, is today's Wang Chung. It wasn't long ago that alt-country was supposed to save the world. The genre even had its own supergroup in Unc...

    Baby, It's Him - Burt Bacharach isn't making a comeback -- he never left

    In person, Burt Bacharach seems smaller than he does when you see him on television or in old photos, standing next to ex-wives Angie Dickinson or Carole Bayer Sager. His arms are twig thin, and his face is a little more gaunt than it was back when h...
