    HIP HOPE - NINE AND DA BUSH BABEES ARE TRYING TO PRODUCE A RAP TO REMEMBER.

    While rap and hip-hop remain inaudible on most radio stations, the genre continues to represent the music of choice for a hefty percentage of the under-25 crowd, whose members dump more of their cash on CDs than those in any other single group. These...

    FRANKLY SPEAKING

    There's nothing like an early death to prompt critical reconsideration--and the reputation of Frank Zappa, who succumbed to cancer in late 1993 at the age of 52, has gotten a major boost as a result of this phenomenon. At the time of his passing, the...

    ROGER WILCO - THANKS TO JEFF TWEEDY AND WILCO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE EMBARRASSED TO LIKE COUNTRY ROCK ANYMORE.

    Wilco's Jeff Tweedy knows a thing or two about rock journalism. "The Flying Burrito Brothers have to be mentioned in any article about a country-rock band," notes the singer/guitarist. "It's like the Velvet Underground or Big Star. For rock critic...

    ZOONER OR LATER

    Denver's Zoon Politikon has been playing catchy power pop in seedy area clubs and crowded living rooms since 1989, but its members still haven't received their fair share of acclaim. Maybe this has something to do with the players' professed laziness...

    GETTING THE LED OUT - THE IN-CONCERT MELLOWING OF JIMMY PAGE AND ROBERT PLANT.

    It was a scene to warm the heart of anyone fearful that the generation gap has widened into an unbridgeable chasm. There, on May 8, in the parking lot of McNichols Arena half an hour prior to the not-quite Led Zeppelin reunion, was a mother on the cu...

    THE HORROR...THE HORROR... - PREPARE YOURSELF FOR THE VOLUPTUOUS HORROR OF KAREN BLACK.

    DIRTY WORK

    During the mid-Seventies, a handful of New Orleans natives armed with kazoos and a small drum earned a reputation, and a few cheap thrills, by tagging along at the end of parades. Initially, this routine was considered a good-timey joke, but over the...

    SOUL MEN - M. DOUGHTY'S SOUL COUGHING ISN'T CLEARING UP. AND THAT'S GOOD NEWS.

    M. Doughty, the mind behind the magnetic, brainy amalgamation called Soul Coughing, didn't attend Juilliard or a pricey guitar institute. No, he received his musical education at the Knitting Factory, an avant-garde breeding ground in New York City. ...

    Elastica Elastica (DGC) All right, I give up. Rather than whining about the fact that half the allegedly new music being released right now sounds like it was recorded in 1982, I guess I'll just have to get used to it. Hell, I liked a lot of the ...

    JOHNNY BE SENSITIVE

    Rolling Stone recently called vocalist John Gorka "the preeminent male singer-songwriter of the new folk movement." It's a description that would thrill most artists, but not Gorka. "That's not my thing," he says simply. "It's kind of silly." In fact...

    MIX AND MATCH - HOW TO PICK THE PERFECT SUMMER CONCERT FOR YOU.

    After 1994's summer concert season (the most lucrative for promoters in recent memory), this year's announced dates seem modest by comparison. There are few multigenerational must-see performances--meaning that consumers will have to peruse the sched...

    THE YOUNG AND THE CRESTFALLEN

    You don't have to be young to love Crestfallen--but it helps. In fact, most of this Denver band's biggest fans are barely able to drive, let alone drink. "For some reason, our music appeals to younger people," says bassist Jason Heller, 23. "We p...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Type O Negative, with Queensryche, Tuesday, May 9, at McNichols Arena, looks like your average hard-rock band--its members sport hair as long as Crystal Gayle's, the requisite tattoos and puckered sneers that say to young, alienated sorts, "We still ...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Archers of Loaf, with the Flaming Lips and Beatnik Film Stars, Tuesday, May 2, at the Ogden Theatre, seem to be at their best when they're beating the crap out of poor, defenseless guitar-pop melodies. The band's 1993 debut, Icky Mettle (on Alias Rec...
