    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

    SUCKING IN THE SEVENTIES - THE EAGLES AND PINK FLOYD BRING BACK THE ME DECADE.

    For anyone who thought that punk rock would destroy the popular music of the Seventies, last week was an enormous repudiation. The Eagles, who appeared June 14 through June 16 at Fiddler's Green, and Pink Floyd, who headlined at Mile High Stadium Jun...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    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...

    LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN

    KEYS TO THE KINGDOM

    Although rap music became commercially viable only a few short years ago, the style itself has been around in one form or another since at least the late Sixties, when the Last Poets' brand of incendiary verbal politics first scorched the intelligent...

    LOCAL ATTRACTION

    John Carter has his work cut out for him. In a city where there's a Sound Warehouse in nearly every strip mall, Carter is trying to carve a niche for himself with Locals' Music, a store that sells only locally made recordings. And he hasn't exactly m...

    BACK TO THE BEACH - THE BEACH BOYS' MIKE LOVE ON MUSIC, MONEY AND SUING COUSIN BRIAN.

    MUSSEL MAN

    Blues harmonicat Charlie Musselwhite looks a lot older than his fifty-something years, but in his case, that's okay: He's earned every line on his face. After four decades of playing and living the blues, Musselwhite is indisputably among the top har...

    Kokane Funk Upon a Rhyme (Ruthless/Relativity) I admit it: When I saw the cover of this album, I figured that the disc would bite. The reason was simple--there's too much lame, redundant, boneheaded gangsta rap out there right now, and a recordin...

    Primal Scream, Thursday, May 26, at Fiddler's Green, with Depeche Mode and Stabbing Westward, has little in common with either of the bands on its current tour. In contrast to the keyboard-tapping Modes or Westward's junior Trent Reznors, the Screame...

    LIPS SERVICE - THERE'S PLENTY OF FIRE IN THE FLAMING LIPS.

    If Oklahoma City doesn't go down in pop-rock history as the next (yawn) Seattle, Flaming Lips guitarist/vocalist Wayne Coyne won't mind. He likes his hometown the way it is--boring. "We've sort of gone out of our way to say, `Look, there's nothing go...
