    Honesty Is Golden - Dan Murphy comes out from behind a bank of Golden Smog.

    Golden Smog began its life as what singer-guitarist Dan Murphy describes as "the cover band from hell. We'd learn, like, twenty or thirty covers in two days. And we'd just barely learn them. We'd play requests, too--like 'Freebird.' There'd always be...

    Surf's Up - A new boxed set reveals the dark side of catching a wave.

    The exhaustive liner notes that accompany Cowabunga! The Surf Box, a four-CD set recently issued on the Rhino imprint, are certainly respectful of the musical category dubbed surf; you'd expect nothing less from John Blair, author of The Illustrated ...

    Breaking Tabu

    Unlike those musicians who play up a variety of interests, perhaps to demonstrate that there is more to them than their tunes, Tabu Ley Rochereau, the Zaire-born leader of L'Orchestre Afrisa International, insists that music is his be-all and end-all...

    Metallica Load (Elektra) Thus far, this album has been reviewed more often on the basis of the bandmembers' new grunge-junkie haircuts and the act's decision to headline the worst Lollapalooza bill imaginable than it has on the merits of ...

    Deal With It - For Kelley Deal, a drug bust wasn't the end, but a new beginning.

    Kelley Deal and her twin sister, ex-Pixie-turned-head-Breeder Kim Deal, are anomalies among alternative-rock royalty: They enjoyed popularity in high school and positive relationships with their parents. So why would the lesser-known of the sisters b...

    I Talked With a Zombie - White Zombie's frontman on Disney World, KISS and Pee-wee's Playhouse.

    Of course Rob Zombie's surly; you'd expect him to be, wouldn't you? But on this mid-July evening, he's somewhat less glum than usual, and for a very good reason. The singer and conceptualist behind young America's favorite band, White Zombie, just sp...

    Patti Smith Gone Again (Arista) For an artist with such a stratospheric reputation, Smith's body of work is, in a word, skimpy. Horses, from 1975, stands as one of the most impressive debuts in the annals of pop; the first words out of Sm...
