    NUMBER ONE WITH A PUTTER

    "I've been playing golf for a little over a year," says Vinnie Paul, drummer and producer for the Texas thrash-metal band called Pantera, "and if I hit the first ball of the day good, I can hit them all good all day long. The key is that I generally ...

    HARVEST TIME - THE APPLES GET SET TO REAP THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABORS.

    "It's strange to think that a year from now I might be doing what the people that I think of as rock stars are doing." So says Rob Schneider, the unassuming frontman for the Denver-based pop quartet called the Apples. But while it's presently diff...

    Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge (Virgin) Of course, no one expected that this band would sound all that different without Bill Wyman--except maybe Bill Wyman, that is. And it doesn't: Clearly, the Stones that remain have decided that they're better ...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Jeff Buckley, Thursday, July 14, at the Bug, is the son of Sixties contemporary-folk stalwart Tim Buckley, but you'd never know it by listening to his music. Although this Manhattan-based singer/songwriter (second from left) usually performs as a cof...

    BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL

    Many of us who grew up in the Seventies are convinced that the pop music of that decade is universally wretched. Of course, this isn't entirely true, but it is true enough: Listen to most of the smashes from that era and you'll find it all but imposs...

    LONG LIVE THE KING - KING SUNNY ADE CONTINUES TO BRIGHTEN THE WORLD-MUSIC SCENE.

    ON THE ROAD AGAIN

    Michael Hill's Blues Mob Bloodlines (Alligator) In blues circles, Michael Hill is being lauded as a musical revolutionary, and given how resistant to change most of the genre's practitioners are, maybe he is. This young guitarist is no James "Blo...

    FAMILY MATTERS

    Call the Denver rock scene incestuous and you'll likely get no argument from the members of Somebody's Sister. In retelling the group's history, founders/ spouses Doug and Annette Conlon drop more band names than the autobiography of professional gro...

    CECIL INTERRUPTUS

    Right now, jazz pianist Cecil Taylor doesn't feel much like talking. I know--because I found out the hard way. It's easy to understand why I thought chatting with Taylor would be divine. Throughout his forty-year career in jazz, he's remained amo...

    BORE NONE - THE BOREDOMS ARE AS ALTERNATIVE AS LOLLAPALOOZA '94 GETS.

    "We fit in everywhere but nowhere," says Eye Yamatsuka, the mad scientist behind the avant-garde pop vivisectionists known as the Boredoms. What the wiry young vocalist is trying to convey by this statement is anyone's guess, but one thing is certain...

    LOLLAPALOOZA JACKSON

    The songs recorded by the talented quartet called Luscious Jackson feature some of the freshest, least categorizable music heard during the past several years. But because the four bandmembers are all women, they're finding that getting respect from ...

    VASSAR GRADUATES

    Vassar Clements looks sturdy and functional, like a small-town mechanic who's never too busy to stop and chat while pumping your gas. A man with a strong Southern accent and the manner of a kindly grandpa, he uses expletives such as "dad gum it" and ...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Gil Scott-Heron, Friday, June 24, at the Ogden Theatre, may not be the father of rap music, but he's certainly been a major influence on those current hip-hoppers who are trying to push the genre forward. Scott-Heron was combining jazzy music and spo...

    CATCHING THE BUZZ

    If the members of the Denver-based party band called Lovebuzz seem a little too close-knit, blame it on childhood development. "I've been friends with Jason [Schrock] since the fourth grade," explains guitarist/vocalist Brian Hendrick. "And then we m...

    Cynic, Monday, June 20, at the Gothic Theatre, with Cannibal Corpse and Sinister, looks like your standard-issue death-rock act, from the players' long hair to their sullen expressions. Fortunately, the bandmembers offer more than Lurch-like vocals, ...

    HELL ON WHEELS - DRIVE LIKE JEHU TRIES TO STEER OUT OF THE SHADOW OF ROCKET FROM THE CRYPT.

    The rock press can be both a boon and a bane for emerging rock bands that fall into the all-encompassing phylum now known as alternative music. No one knows this better than the foursome in San Diego's Drive Like Jehu. Although this cataclysmic act h...

    BECK TO THE FUTURE

    For Beck, the backlash is in full swing. There's no telling when--or whom--this kind of adverse reaction will strike, but the last two months of singer-songwriter Beck Hansen's career provide a textbook example of the phenomenon. The man who a rep...
