Bobby Gaylor: Fuzzatonic Scream

Elliott Smith

The assembled Black Cat crowd trends much younger than I'd for whatever reason anticipated. The under-21 outnumbers the grownups by something like 3-1 or greater.

Lambchop: Nixon

Nixon is an excellent record and proof that Lambchop is no longer just a talented or interesting band but a good one.


Dead Prez: Let’s Get Free

Kenny Roby: Mercury’s Blues

Kelley Stoltz: The Past Was Faster

In America’s mad, list-crazy rush to name the greatest invention of the Millennium, nobody mentioned the home 4-track recorder.

Sweet and Lowdown (1999)

Even though Sean Penn brings a phenomenally hysterical freshness to Emmett Ray (and he played a similarly mustachioed maniac in Hurly Burly, without the artistic genius), Sweet and Lowdown is familiar ground for Woody Allen, replete with his usual themes.

Fiona Apple: When The Pawn…

M70o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr


Sunday, October 31 1999

Dixie Chicks: Fly

Fly illustrates that the Dixie Chicks have successfully figured out how to push the boundaries of country music while continuing to embrace the traditional sound of its past.

Being John Malkovich

The new movie Being John Malkovich is about celebrity culture, as it inspires, frustrates and pummels you into such desire. It offers its protagonists and you the chance to imagine being a celebrity, with one small hitch: the only celebrity you can be is John Malkovich.


Deerhoof: Holdypaws

Deerhoof doesn’t sound like a band that you would drive 40 miles on country roads to hear.


The Dismemberment Plan: Emergency & I

M110o93H7pQ09L8X1t49cHY01Z5j4TT91fGfr

The Clash: From Here to Eternity

If newfound clarity and intensity aren’t enough for ya, buy it for the absolutely chilling version of “Straight to Hell.” Which isn’t just the Clash’s finest hour—it’s one of rock’s most haunting moments.

David Bowie: hours…

David Bowie is much too good for this. Please David, leave the “adult-boring” charts to Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and the rest of that lot.

Radiohead: Meeting People Is Easy [DVD]

Ultimately, Meeting People is Easy is a disjointed film with a meandering narrative that somehow succeeds despite its real lack of focus in capturing the chaos, pressure, and frequent boredom of the celebrity lifestyle.


Ray Charles: The Complete Country & Western Recordings 1959-1986

Ray Charles is one of those rare artists that can convincingly traffic in virtually any genre of music and make it sound thoroughly his own.

Fight Club (1999)

Does capitalism have you by the balls? If you're feeling a little limp lately, a little flaccid, emasculated, or impotent, then David Fincher's Fight Club may just have your number. This film kicks butt, and in doing so it also manages to suggest that your need for it and for other butt-kicking films is a late capitalist symptom of contemporary psychosis.

Garth Brooks: In the Life of Chris Gaines
