    Culture Club

    I used to have a friend who had a lot of mottoes. One of his best was "Life's a team sport." Which means at least play like it is. Share your water at a rave, or buy an extra ticket to give away at a Phish show. Sure, you might bestow your miracle on...

    . . . Star Bright - Jewel went from coffee-house songstress to rising star overnight, but Homer's where her heart is

    When Jewel Kilcher quit the nine-to-five life in early 1994 and moved into the cramped comforts of a '79 Volkswagen van, all she wanted to do was play music, surf and stay fed. Since then, however, Jewel has racked up credentials that evoke the envy ...

    Wall to Walternative

    First, rhythm and blues begat "rock 'n' roll," a term that still has cachet in a few crumbling, former Soviet republics. Then came all of rock 'n' roll's bastard offspring--folk rock, acid rock, hard rock, progressive rock, country rock, punk rock--e...

    Staying Alive - A new compilation album from Seattle collective Home Alive advocates self-defense by any means

    Seattle punk songstress Mia Zapata got famous for the most evil of reasons--not because of her singing, which was good, but because of her death, which was horrible. On the night of July 7, 1993, Zapata had a few beers with some friends at the C...
