    Getting Cosy

    "Recently," says singer Cosy Sheridan, "I've attempted to look at songwriting sort of as a public service." This comment doesn't mean that Sheridan's recordings lack an individual perspective; in fact, she's one of music's more distinctive tunes...

    Mystery Man - Who is Ralph Gean, and why is he the latest hero of Denver's musical underground?

    At the Lion's Lair during the waning hours of a Thursday in late August, the hipsters have gathered. Knots of musicians, fans and hangers-on cluster around the venue's bar, patting backs, exchanging gossip and otherwise epitomizing all that is fresh ...

    Nearly God Nearly God (Durban Poison/Island) Obviously, Tricky isn't lacking in confidence; conceding that he's "nearly" God, as opposed to "better than" God, for instance, doesn't exactly constitute a gusher of modesty. However, Tricky e...

    Strings Attached - Colorado Springs composer Stephen Scott on a different way to play piano.

    KISS and Sell - Gene Simmons is offering the deal of the century on a slightly used rock band.

    Gene Simmons's famous tongue is wagging like Lassie's tail on breeding day. A publicity vampire, he's been starved of the press for a long, long while, at least in America. Although his albums sold respectably into the Nineties, even many onetime fan...

    Keys to the Kingdom

    So its lead singer has long hair, its grabbiest instrumentalist is a female violin player, its CD sports a secret bonus track and its live shows attract dozens of flannel-adorned air guitarists. Does that mean Boulder's Sponge Kingdom is just another...

    Those flyers referring to Spell's Friday, August 30, date at the Bluebird Theater (with the Apples, Space Team Electra and Social Joke) as the act's last Denver gig are a bit overstated--but only a bit. The trio, which features drummer Garrett Shavli...

    The World According to Beth Quist

    Diversity is a goal that many in the Boulder music scene try to achieve. But rarely is so much of it found in one person, as is the case with Beth Quist. A connoisseur of sound, she sports a resume that seems more like a U.N. mediator's than an enter...
