    Jermaine Dupri Life in 1472 (So So Def) Life in 1472, the debut recording as a frontman of hit producer Jermaine Dupri, is one of the most pointless releases of the year, and it sounds like many of the participants knew it from the start. T...

    Workin' Stiffs The once sleepy S.F. punk scene is wide awake. Throughout most of the '90s the East Bay scene -- fueled by the Gilman Street pop punks and their kin -- held the keys to local punkdom, leaving San Francisco punks reminiscing about t...

    Industrial Sun - Suncatcher and the mediocre beauty of Los Angeles
