Redemption Song

The Fugees mark a return to righteousness in hip hop

And at the Austin show, she was all sass, telling the soundman to "fix the fucking" mix and cajoling her bandmates to keep on playing even after organizers told them to pull the plug. She, Clef, and Pras traded verses with the uncanny communication you'd expect from a holy trinity, raising all the fervor of a revival meeting. Earlier, Jean had led his DJ and the band through a medley of old-school songs, from "White Lines" to "Rock Box" and, tellingly, the gospel number "Lift Every Voice and Sing." As Bob Marley once sang, "In this great future, you can't forget your past."

The Fugees play Fri, March 29, at the Fillmore in S.F.; call 346-6000.
