    The House of Tudor

    On the Blue in the Face soundtrack, David Byrne tried to match the achievement of Wayne Wang's superlative film -- that is, to give the outsider an insider's look at Brooklyn. While the musical selection was inspired -- Lou Reed, Soul Coughing, Astor...

    Hearing a New World - Freaks and friends explain why the Residents still matter

    The Residents have always been weird, but they've rarely been weird for its own sake. For 25 years and on 30-some-odd records the anonymous quartet has used off-kilter wit and bizarre imagination to force listeners to absorb and process the group's a...
