    Handy Man

    Still in EFX - Das EFX keeps bringing it up from the underground

    The life expectancy of the average hip-hop group is comparable to that of the average housefly. Have a smash one year, and you'd better have a smash the next, or you'll wind up as extinct as the dodo. Sure, a few rhymers (such as Queen Latifah) have ...

    Brand-Name Zappa - Is Rykodisc trying to (finally) get Frank Zappa's cruddy music on the radio?

    The late Frank Zappa was both paradoxical and perverse: As a musician, he was influenced primarily by the late-19th-century ideas of composers such as Stravinsky and Varese, yet most casual listeners will probably remember him as a quintessential '60...

    Staying Power - The Chimeras are the Tempe band that would not die

    The unofficial bio for the Chimeras has all the stereotypical ingredients of a rock 'n' roll miniseries: alcoholism, drug addiction and rehab, chronic depression and suicide. It's not a happy tale, but after nearly four years in development, the plot...
