    ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

    The year was 1988, the group was Public Enemy and the album was It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, as incendiary a blast of politicized bile as had been spewed by any band since the Sex Pistols. Lead rapper Chuck D, whose band had made a ...

    STATE OF GRACE - SINGER-SONGWRITER JEFF BUCKLEY WEARS HIS AMBITIONS ON HIS SLEEVE.

    When singer/songwriter Jeff Buckley talks about his music, he doesn't mess around. "I'd say my songs fall into [the category] of twentieth-century American," he notes, "because that definition encompasses so much. Pop art. Even the Flintstones. I...

    REVENGE OF THE GEEK - LISA GERMANO TAKES ON HER DEMONS--AND WINS.

    It's probably not a good idea to take literally singer-songwriter Lisa Germano's claim, "In the beginning, I was thinking I was going to do a happy record." After all, her terrific 1993 disc Happiness balanced gallows humor with material that was abo...

    LIFE IN THE BLUE CITY

    The members of Denver's Blue City 5 take a philosophical approach to their work. The performers feel that their music is not going anywhere and doesn't come from anywhere, either. It simply exists in eternal space and time. This theory might seem...

    THE 411 ON 311

    ONWARD, CHRISTIAN SINGERS! - THE KINGS OF CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN MUSIC BELIEVE THAT THEIR PRAYERS ARE ABOUT TO BE ANSWERED.

    SHLOCK OF THE NEW

    For those who like music with an edge, "I'll Make Love to You," by Boyz II Men (the biggest selling single in the country for over two months now) is not just annoying; it's an affront. Not only doesn't "Love" have an edge--it doesn't have a top, a b...

    "Sometimes I think that we're just an alternative band," says Doug Martsch, the voice and guitar behind Boise, Idaho's Built to Spill. "We're more than that, but I can see other people automatically pigeonholing us." Martsch needn't worry: Built t...
