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

    Mike Love: The name conjures up a particularly Californian image of sun, fun, peace and happiness. If Love, the longtime vocal anchor of the American institution known as the Beach Boys, hadn't been born with this name, he would have been well advise...

    MUSSEL MAN

    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...

    CRITIC'S CHOICE

    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...

    GEORGIA ON HIS MIND

    Perhaps it's testimony to America's essential greatness that a culture seemingly dominated by news of Roseanne and Tom's marital problems still manages to produce artists as inspired as Georgia's Vic Chesnutt. Chestnutt isn't a ringer for Eddie V...
