My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2004 at 12:00 AM

They sample the Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil” and use it with brazen uncredited impunity — and they don’t get sued! They steal, note for note, John Barry’s underwater music from Thunderball and take full credit for it — and they don’t get sued! Robvira Zombie rips off...

Van Hunt

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Van Hunt’s debut album is damn good. Especially considering that homeboy writes and produces his own stuff, which is, in fact, a glorious throwback to Prince’s heyday and Curtis Mayfield’s golden era. What sucks is this guy’s timing. He drops this jewel of an album at a time when...

Rocket Redux

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2004 at 12:00 AM

High energy ain’t dead, dad. So say the Rubber City Rebels. These Akron semi-legends return from a 20-year hiatus (history lesson:  they were a glam cover band that started doing revved-up, bad taste originals, opened a club in Akron where Devo, Bizarros and Pere Ubu did early shows, signed to Sire,...

Greatest Palace Music

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2004 at 12:00 AM

As one of the most enigmatic and enduring voices in the American underground, Will Oldham’s name is synonymous with desperate, renegade folk music. His string of hipster must-haves in the ’90s (Viva Lost Blues, Arise Therefore and Joya) came under a number of names (Palace Music, Palace Brothers and finally...

This Left Feels Right

Posted By on Wed, Feb 18, 2004 at 12:00 AM

No, this left feels like veering wildly and driving straight off a cliff into a flooded ravine some 100 feet below. It’s the sound of men who are dangerously pussy-whipped — by Heather Locklear, Calista Flockhart, who knows? — and have been taking some bad medicine, er, advice. Granted, MTV’s...

The Best of the Complete Pablo Solo Masterpieces

Posted By on Wed, Feb 11, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Dear Brian: If things go well, music editor, this will be my last review. I’m taking the Tatum cure. Or, rather, I’m taking the Tatum cure again. Last time I relapsed. But I’ve been listening to this new Tatum best-of collection, and I think I know what went wrong....

Stompin' Ground

Posted By on Wed, Feb 11, 2004 at 12:00 AM

Everyone loves a Southern gal, right? Even if you don’t buy into the whole “demure by day, naughty by night” stereotype that’s dogged our fair belles since plantation days, there’s always going to be a certain mystique about these creatures with earthy twangs and veiled sensibilities. Once in a...
