    Parental Guidance Suggested - If you're easily offended, don't read this article--because it's about a band called Fuck.

    Even though Tim Prudhomme, vocalist and guitarist for Fuck, has been a card-carrying member of the music industry for several years, he insists (in the most disingenuous manner possible) that he still does not understand how it works. "I watch the MT...

    Converging on Greatness

    Assembling the members of Convergence for a gig is easier said than done. You see, bassist Mark Simon, keyboardist Eric Gunnison and drummer Paul Romaine call Denver home, while trumpeter Greg Gisbert and saxophonist/composer John Gunther are former ...

    Kids Say the Darnedest Things - The members of Bis know what's wrong with most of their peers: They're too old.

    Youth fades. That's a given. But if you've got it, flaunt it. For the members of Bis, a staggeringly ebullient trio from Scotland, this bit of common sense isn't simply a good idea; it's the stuff of which manifestos are made. What pop music need...

    Star Power - Keanu Reeves's band, Dogstar, isn't very good--but since he's in it, who cares?

    Okay, let's get this out of the way right from the start. For years, I've had a crush on Keanu Reeves. My infatuation hasn't blinded me to Reeves's limitations: I didn't come out of the 1994 film Little Buddha, in which Keanu portrayed Prince Si...

    Passing the Test

    Like most Colorado jazz musicians with a taste for experimental sounds, multi-instrumentalist Geoff Cleveland puts food in his belly by playing mainstream and straightahead jazz in area clubs. Doing so is not a chore for him: "When I've been away fro...
