    Bad Brains The only thing more amazing than Bad Brains' fusion of Jah-inspired dub and D.C. hardcore is the band's volatility, as disagreements over musical direction, drug problems, and failed mainstream success have led to a series of breakups ...

    House of Tudor

    For Oleg Bernov, Igor Yuzov, and Zhenya Kolykhanov -- better known as the Red Elvises -- the sweltering croon and swiveling hips of The King could do nothing to penetrate the bitter cold of Siberian winters. They were born and raised in Russia, and f...

    He'll Be There - Willie Hutch wrote one of the greatest songs ever, but he ain't done yet

    Willie Hutch's studio sits along a desolate stretch of Highway 67 in Cedar Hill, Texas. It is just off the highway, not far from an exit no one seems to use very much -- unless, perhaps, they are in need of used tires, which are sold at the establish...

    We didn't need to be beaten over the head with the scores from Titanic and Pulp Fiction to realize that movie soundtracks long ago ceased being background noise. At their worst, soundtracks generate big cash without having any conceivable relationshi...

    Cypress Hill Cypress Hill are hip hop's Johnny Potseed, breaking out joints onstage and filling albums with ganja praises. The problem is that on their new release, IV, the danky smoke references are as stale as month-old bong water. The alb...

    To call the Raincoats post-punk's most exhilarating all-girl band would be an insult. In 1978, the members of the inspiring group were already in their mid-20s (guitarist Ana da Silva was nearly -- gasp! -- 30). They were women at the time, musicians...

    Melding Pot - Kronos Quartet blends history, cultures, and classical music

    Serrated strings of ear-bleed intensity saw through the silence like air raid sirens. Then a sharp decrescendo reduces the din to a faint, tormented echo. The music's dynamic rocks back and forth like this, escalating to an epic tension in the 90-sec...
