    PLAYLIST

    Green Day Insomniac (Reprise) In the press biography sent to reviewers with this CD, flack Ben Weasel (a nom de plume, perhaps?) claims that Insomniac "ISN'T a progression, and that's exactly WHY it's so fucking good. I mean, Christ, if the Ramon...

    FOND O' WANDA - WANDA JACKSON, THE QUEEN OF ROCKABILLY, IS READY TO PARTY AGAIN.

    Plenty of people have fantasized about the young, virile, mid-Fifties Elvis Presley. But Wanda Jackson, who can make a persuasive claim for being the first female rockabilly singer, is one of the few who actually dated him. "I know that you've re...

    SKUNK ROCK

    Since the mid-Seventies, hardcore British music has been linked to messages of rebellion. But if you think the multiracial quartet Skunk Anansie is upholding traditions established by the Sex Pistols and the Clash, lead singer Skin suggests you think...

    LOVE THAT JOAN

    If Joan Armatrading had the power to do so, she would change one thing about her fans: their number. "They're very hardcore, and they don't give up on me. It's fantastic," she notes. "But I would like, as an artist, for more people to know about what...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    Brutal Juice, with Neurosis and GWAR, Sunday, November 19, at the Ogden Theatre, is not what you'd call a good date band: The name of the quintet's debut for the Interscope imprint--Mutilation Makes Identification Difficult--provides a fairly accurat...

    HIT PICK

    Slim Cessna's Auto Club and Smokin' Uncle Rumley and the Pork-Boilin' Po' Boys, Thursday, November 16, at the Bluebird Theater, are a one-two punch aimed straight at people who love country music but fear that admitting it puts them just below Pat Bu...

    ALTERNATIVE TO WHAT?

    The changing nature of rock and roll is mirrored by shifts in its lexicon, and no term associated with the genre exemplifies this characteristic better than "rock and roll" itself. Blacklisted disc jockey Alan Freed is credited with concocting the sl...

    'VENGING ON GREATNESS

    The 'Vengers, Boulder's premier ska group, don't do much soul searching when it comes to their music. "I think the bottom line is, it's not an attitude thing," says bassist/vocalist Chris "Limey" Welsh. "You get a lot of musicians who stand there and...

    HIT PICK

    Jux County, with Jonny Rocket, Friday, November 10, at the Bluebird Theater, stars Andy Monley, a performer who understands how the rock-music game is played but chooses to operate by his own set of rules anyhow. And that's good, because his singular...

    IN THE PINK

    For decades the USSR officially denied its citizens the small pleasures afforded by "decadent" Western rock and roll. But in recent years, pop-culture-starved Russians were subjected to something worse--visits from bland stars such as Billy Joel and ...

    HANDS UP

    The music made by the eclectic quintet Laughing Hands can't be confused with that of most other Denver-area groups: Its folk-meets-worldbeat sound is like an exceedingly enjoyable course in ethnomusicology. But string bassist Tim Cross, who's been pa...

    THE CHASE IS ON

    At most record stores, Eagle Dances With the Wind, the Canyon Records debut by the Denver-based Native American duo Red Tail Chasing Hawks, is filed in the new-age section. And that's too bad, because, as Hawks pianist James Torres points out, there'...
