    Harp Attack

    "All harpists do not have long blond hair, and they aren't tall and willowy and quiet," declares Boston-based harp virtuoso Deborah Henson-Conant. "Not by a long shot." Henson-Conant is living proof of this claim. Not only is she a musical innova...

    Cast of 1000

    Every musician has a story about gigs from hell, but few of these tales can compare with the one told by Michael Rains, bassist and vocalist for Denver's 1000 RPM. The band was booked to play a back-to-classes bash at the Colorado School of Mines, wh...

    Bishop Moves On - In the face of tragedy, Denver's L.L. Bishop keeps dancing.

    That Denver DJ Larry (L.L.) Bishop remains deeply involved in dance music is a tribute to his resilience. After all, his wife and constant companion, Wreath Rose Bishop, died in an automobile accident in Boulder a mere five months ago, and thoughts o...

    Our hard-hitting media colleagues have spent the past several days eulogizing John Denver, who died in a plane crash last weekend at the age of 53, not as a drunk driver and a gasoline hoarder, but as an environmental activist and a boon to Colorado ...

    System's Abnormal - K Records founder Calvin Johnson leads Dub Narcotic Sound System down the road less traveled.

    The musical explosion that took place in the Pacific Northwest during the late Eighties and early Nineties wasn't exactly a secret; if memory serves, a few million gallons of ink were spilled in telling the tale of the so-called grunge movement. But ...

    Good Prince, Bad Prince - Reports of Prince's creative death have been greatly exaggerated.

    Journalists like yours truly are fond of claiming that there's no such thing as bad publicity, but that's not always the case--and Prince Roger Nelson can prove it. He almost single-handedly made pop music in the Eighties tolerable, but as the decade...

    Total Control - The Olivia Tremor Control, part of Denver's Elephant 6 family, shakes up the underground.

    Many of the pop sounds that crowd the airwaves are not so much the spawn of earlier eras as they are slightly embellished clones of their forebears. Make no mistake--the many genres that are competing in this fin de siecle revue are valid, with rich ...

    Justin's Times

    Although numerous reggae lovers feel that 55-year-old Justin Hinds is one of the best vocalists in the music's history, only a handful of Americans are familiar with him--and many of them know him better as a hotelier than as a singer. "I have a...

    The 'Rail Thing - The Derailers bring the Bakersfield sound into the Nineties.

    Tony Villanueva, singer and guitarist for the Texas-based Derailers, sports a hairdo like no other. Buzzed close on top, left long and slick on the sides, it's the quintessential anti-pompadour, more Glenn Ford and Fuller Brush than Elvis Presley and...

    Twenty Years and Counting - Denver's Gary Givant has been DJing since the Seventies--and he's still going strong.
