    BACK FROM THE GRAVE

    There are plenty of ways to kill a good group, and the members of Denver's Freddi-Henchi Band have tried most of them. Drug abuse, alcohol abuse, death--the act's history reads like a rhythm-and-blues version of Valley of the Dolls. So it's something...

    EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED - FORMER VELVET UNDERGROUNDER JOHN CALE IS STILL DOING WHATEVER HE DAMN WELL PLEASES.

    [UNTITLED] CUTS

    To understand why the music made by Boulder's [Untitled] is so eclectic, it's best to go back to 1987--when, according to bassist Trevor Dutton, "We decided to start a band before we had the instruments." Or at least they didn't have any conventi...
