    Kontroversy - Korn ignores critics of its heavy metal attitude

    Only in America could a band like Korn simultaneously be so adored and scorned. Borrowing from a myriad of musical styles and cultures, the Bakersfield, California rap-metal-funk-alternative quintet adopts hip-hop fashion, surfer-dude attitude and he...

    Feeling at Ease

    Kellye Gray is cool. Not Miles Davis cool, though certainly she has some elements of that. It's more like your best friend kind of cool. The kind of cool that makes you feel at ease. You want to shoot the breeze with her because she's engaging, and y...

    Gergiev the Great - Kirov kicks in masterfully for a tardy maestro

    Latecomers to Thursday's Kirov Orchestra performance at Jones Hall didn't have to suffer through the first half of the concert waiting outside to be seated after the intermission. The 8 p.m. start came and went while the concert crowd continued to sw...

    Magic Flutes - Dutch group makes music the old-fashioned way

    Around 330 B.C., Aristotle wrote in his Politics: "The flute is not an instrument that has a good moral effect: It is too exciting." Better remembered but more widely disputed are Mozart's sentiments about the ancient instrument. In a letter to his f...

    The Good Fight

    Someone has to take the blame for the swing revival's cigar-chomping, martini-swilling madness and rampant retro-fashion sense. And right now, Royal Crown Revue is happy to shoulder the brunt of it. "We pretty much take responsibility for doing ...

    Into the Groovy - Raving about Simon Reynolds's techno-historical treatment, Generation Ecstasy

    Let me begin by stating that I have seen Simon Reynolds do the methylenedioxymethamphetamine boogie. Moreover, I have, on occasion, shared water bottles with him. This seems important to note for two reasons. One is to reveal that books are sometimes...

    Children of the Korn

    Korn's 1998 harvest is more bountiful than anyone could have expected, and younger metal/punk/rap hybrid acts like the Deftones are reaping the benefits. Not that the Sacramento quartet hasn't been working hard on its own account. Road stints with Ba...

    Last words ... Perhaps it was inevitable that Houston and I would part ways -- eventually. But I never thought it would happen this abruptly. Three weeks ago, my wife and I were scoping out houses in the Heights, intent on hanging around a while. Tod...

    Ladies Luck - Five Barenaked Canadians conquer a fickle America with patience

    After almost a decade, Barenaked Ladies's slow-and-steady wooing of America finally came to fruition this summer. Upon its June release, Stunt, the Canadian band's fourth full-length CD, debuted at number three -- not bad when you consider its predec...

    Change Is Good

    For McCoy Tyner, one of the most pivotal moments in his musical evolution was also one of the most casual. "My mom asked me, 'Do you mind if Bud Powell uses our piano?' He came in and played my piano and I offered him a sandwich. Years later, I saw h...

    Anti-Swing Objective - Tosca takes up arms against a watered-down craze. Its secret weapon? Tango.

    The noise from the Orchid Lounge stage sounds suspiciously like tuning in an orchestra pit. On the dance floor, a handful of couples practice their steps. One graying twosome struggles in vain to stay in synch, their feet unable to cooperate with the...

    Smut Circus

    Clubland

    Initially, the concept seemed a little odd: booking local underground bands at an infamous all-nude nightclub. But when you think about it, the idea of a punk night at the Pink Pussycat makes some sense. After all, we're talking about groups that tak...

    Just the Basics

    From the beginning, the harmonica has been one of the basic tools of the blues -- and for good reason: It's readily affordable, easily portable and relatively simple to learn. Its distinctive, reedy tone, rendered by both exhaling and inhaling, seems...

    Action Incorporated - Make way for Master P's low-end version of Hollywood

    If Howard Stern still believes he carries the burden of being "King of All Media," he should pick up a copy of the urban-music bible The Source sometime. He'll find that many of today's rap impresarios are kicking his ass in that department, probing ...
