    CAN YOU BEAT THAT?

    The songs played by Kandombe, a Boulder-based percussion ensemble, represent musical freedom in its truest sense. The performers believe their music cannot be contained or categorized, because the sounds they make are not modeled after various styles...

    THINK FOR YOURSELF - YOU'VE GOT TO USE YOUR HEAD TO GET INTO SHUDDER TO THINK.

    In Craig Wedren's world, people really listen--not only for noises but for the spaces that separate the sounds. "Silence is the ultimate dynamic," says the singer of Shudder to Think. "It's polar to what most bands do, but it can be a beautiful remin...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Foetus, Wednesday, July 26, at the Mercury Cafe, makes music far more dangerous than your parents could imagine: It's morbid, electric, ungodly. Jim Foetus has been pumping out material of this description since 1980, and his dense collections of lou...

    GREAT SKA - AFTER THIRTY YEARS OF SKA WARS, THE SKATALITES ARE STILL FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT.

    Although ska may be an exceedingly vibrant and energetic force, it's not a new one. In fact, the roots of the music are practically the same age as Tommy McCook, the fiftysomething leader of the Skatalites, one of Jamaica's earliest ska bands. But wh...

    PERFECTLY EVERCLEAR

    Everclear's Art Alexakis doesn't buy into the tortured-rock-star syndrome. "A lot of bands are kind of whiny, if you ask me," says the vocalist/guitarist. "If you're playing guitar and getting paid for it, that's a pretty good job, I think. I've work...

    LIBRE FOR ALL

    "That movie The Mambo Kings? That was a lot of Hollywood bull," says Andy Gonzales, bassist and musical director for Latin music purveyors Manny Oquendo & Libre. "And I didn't like the book, either. Maybe for the poetry committee it was all right. Bu...

    NATURE'S WAY - THE ONLY THINGS NAUGHTY BY NATURE SHOOTS UP ARE HIP-HOP STEREOTYPES.

    Kansas senator Bob Dole's recent attack on popular culture has garnered largely favorable responses despite his blatantly political motivations (the man would give his good arm to be President) and numerous proclamations that were utterly nonsensical...

    DAVE'S WORLD

    NO ALTERNATIVE - A LOOK AT THE MODERN-ROCK SONGS DENVER RADIO IS DOING TO DEATH.

    With KTCL, the Peak and what's left of KBCO all attempting to bend the ears of listeners who went to college during the early Eighties (and apparently lost their taste for musical adventure immediately thereafter), Denver's airwaves hang heavy with t...
