    With the programmers at MTV playing far fewer music videos than they have in years past, simply getting a clip onto the network is a victory of sorts for young bands on the rise. But for the ska-punkers in Detroit's Suicide Machines, breaking onto th...

    Life With Fluffy - Fluffy's Amanda Rootes officiates at the wedding of glamour and punk.

    The Holmes Brothers Promised Land (Rounder) Most of the CD stores that stock material by the New York-based Brothers Holmes--and not nearly enough of them do--place it in the blues section, as if that's the only kind of music that three Afr...

    Rollins With the Punches - Henry Rollins takes on all comers.

    "I don't want punk credibility," intones Henry Rollins, "because that would mean I'd have to have a heroin habit, shitty hair, no muscle tone and a girlfriend with pins hanging out of her tits." No question about it: Rollins, 36, gives good quot...

    Beck on the Highway - The man of the moment wants some moments for himself.

    Beck Hansen is tired. He's in England, a country where hot American acts are routinely vilified by reviewers who are suspicious of any trend that did not get its start from them. Beck, however, has somehow been spared this treatment. Since his arriva...

    Notes from the local underground. The first thing you hear on pianist David London's new CD is London himself, sounding like a homegrown Fabio. "My name is David London," he says over a lush backing track, "and this is my creation, Music on the R...

    Tiptoeing Through the Tulips - The flowering of Holland's Bettie Serveert.

    The song that introduced Carol van Dijk, vocalist and guitarist for Bettie Serveert, to the pop-music audience as a whole was 1992's "Tomboy." The tune's title is an appropriate one; on it, the singer's voice exudes a friendly, genderless, Huck Finn ...

    Punks of the Rising Sun - Thanks to Electric Summer, the Denver music scene is turning Japanese.

    To Rush or Not to Rush? - Geddy Lee presents the case for Canada's most famous power trio.

    Okay, I admit it: I've never understood the appeal of Rush. When friends would tout the instrumental gymnastics and lyrical insights of bombastic discs such as 1976's 2112 (largely inspired by the writings of--gulp--Ayn Rand), I'd respond with a shud...
