    Bowel Story

    Patient By Ben Watt Grove Press 178 pages; $21 One of the charms of Patient, an autobiography by pop star Ben Watt (of the English dance-rock duo Everything But the Girl) is that it isn't really a pop-star autobiography. Pamela Des Barr...

    Hear This

    The Dwarves The Dwarves are kind of like the monotonous PB and J's that Mom would pack in lunches for weeks on end. They were enjoyable enough -- never really bad, never really great, either -- but they were a mainstay of mediocrity. The Dwarves'...

    The House of Tudor

    Beneath the tumultuous, sweat-drenched percussion and the inspirational vocals of a powerful and beautiful chanteuse named Hanitra lies the true message behind Tarika. Their second album, Son Egal, is a vibrant, sweeping condemnation of the political...

    Bobby Bradford Even though L.A. trumpeter Bobby Bradford swings with his own brand of lyrical fire, his connection to Ornette Coleman cannot be overstated. In fact, along with Don Cherry, Bradford was one of Coleman's top brass sidekicks of choic...

    Racket

    Those who don't get MTV might have believed they were safe. But those five perky, cartoonish faces were gleaming out from the pages of every magazine (with the exception of The Nation, and that's probably just because it doesn't print pictures). Even...

    Night Crawler

    A friend recently wrote that April 1 marks the beginning of the Cruelest Month of the Year Week. I have to disagree. In San Francisco, at least, April 1 marks the beginning of the Most Absurd Month of the Year Week, and I can prove it. Tuesday aftern...

    The House of Tudor

    For me, the ethereal panhandle-wail of Paula Frazer conjures surreal childhood memories of one feverish night spent watching Shirley Temple movies on a scratchy black-and-white 10-inch screen. For countless hours my world had been reduced to a muggy ...

    The VSS They say there was a time when punk rock could offend an audience. These days that's difficult to digest. With punk appropriated by television jingles and marching bands, what once confronted and agitated now soothes like a crate of Maalo...

    Racket

    If you want to know what the rock 'n' roll lifestyle looks like during downtime, take a walk by the Phoenix Hotel some morning. It's a tiny L.A.-style oasis within the grimy streets of the Tenderloin -- a vision of pink doors and palm trees. Huge, sh...

    Luv Story - The Mr. T Experience play their one song well

    To paraphrase Dwight Okita, a poet I'm fond of, an artist's greatest responsibility is to constantly diversify, branch out, and evolve. But now that we're in the latter half of the '90s, I wonder if this decade is going to be remembered as a time whe...
