    The Jennys Take a Ride - The band formerly known as Spinning Jenny finds itself with a dandy new CD and that deja vu feeling all over again

    A funny thing happened the last time Spinning Jenny had a CD-release party: The group broke up! At the stroke of midnight! Keyboardist Brett Hinders, who had been in the band only for a few months at the time, recalls how it all came to a head during...

    The Trashman - Where unit-shifting heroes of rock are exposed as passionless poseurs

    I cracked a 40 of King Kobra, opened the curtains a bit, and took a seat. My trailer park's domestic-theater show had just begun, and my neighbor, Meth-Head Red, was in rare form. His lime-green La-Z-Boy, which usually sits in front of Red's TV, now ...

    Dancing Shoes - The Sneaker Pimps, the U.K.'s newest electronica export, gain a foothold in the U.S.

    Sneaker Pimps co-founder and keyboardist Liam Howe is trippin' on "trip-hop." "That term was born too quickly without enough thought to what it meant," he says. "Massive Attack's Blue Lines was written six years ago and wasn't called trip-hop un...

    Bono Fide

    Once I escaped the teeming mass of Melrose Place fans in the low bleacher seats and climbed high enough to feel the breeze on my nipples, I got into U2's POPMart phantasmagoria at Sun Devil Stadium, May 9, a lot more than I thought I would. Turning a...

    Back in the Game - Chicago soul singer Syl Johnson is reborn with a little help from the homeboys

    There are a lot of good and even excellent blues guitarists, but players of the subtlest instrument, soul-blues singers, are an increasingly rare treat. That's why Chicago singer Syl Johnson's pending gig at the Rhythm Room is the kind of show rabid ...

    Shooting Craps - U2 takes over the world--and turns it into a commercial

    When it comes to Las Vegas, the gambling and the naked showgirls and the 99-cent shrimp cocktails aren't really what make it seem so different from the real world. It's the bizarre architecture: Huge public buildings the size of Versailles or Blenhei...

    Where's the Cream?

    Not just an artist, mind you, but "The Artist." That's what the 9,000 tickets said. You have to admit, no matter how deep you're into his (His?) music, that's just a little pretentious. "Everybody always asks me what your name is now," said The Artis...

    Punk Rock Grrls

    When Kathleen Hanna screamed, "Don't need your dick to fuck!" on Bikini Kill's first album, she defined the burgeoning riot-grrl movement in one blunt lyric. It was 1990, and a network of punk rock "grrls" in Olympia, Washington, had formed bands to ...

    King Bobby - Bobby Fuller billed himself "The Rock & Roll King of the Southwest." His reign was short. He dropped acid, died young and left behind some of the wildest rock guitar ever.

    The term "roots" music has come to mean almost everything that's good and older than the day before yesterday, including rockabilly, swing, soul and ethnic forms like polka, salsa and conjunto. It's gotten easier just to say what roots doesn't cover:...
