KOTTONMOUTH KINGS, PHUNK JUNKEEZ, SPRUNG MONKEY — The Kottonmouth Kings have truly divined the formula for commercial success in modern rock: a serviceable funk beat, metallic guitar riffs, hip-hop derived cadences and lyrics about pot. It's music tailor-made to make adolescent boys feel dangerous while driving their folks apeshit. Rock-rap old-timers the Phunk Junkeez mine similar, though poppier territory and, against all odds, are even less interesting than their tour mates. SoCal punks Sprung Monkey take a decidedly pop turn on their latest, Get a Taste. Masquerade (Robertson/Sarig)

PLACEBO, IDLEWILD — Placebo's singer/guitarist Brian Molko may have changed his subject matter from overindulgence to tales of caution, but have no fear, Placebo still tear through sleazy mascara-smeared rock like a needle tears a vein. Placebo's latest, Black Market Music, is like the morning after a one-night shag: not full-on action, but still revelling in every sordid detail. See Idlewild in Record Reviews, p. 117. Roxy (Ware)

THREE MO' TENORS — When PBS could no longer inflict the endless re-airings of the Three Tenors on its audience, it chanced upon something radically different: Three Mo' Tenors. That's Mo', you know, as in black folks. Hokey as the concept may be, the program sung by these three African-American tenors — Puccini to Ellington, Sondheim to Gamble & Huff — is admittedly appealing. They hit the Ga. Tech stage for two performances. Robert Ferst Center (Sarig)

In his 1937 book The Road to Wigan Pier, author, journalist, and critic George Orwell quipped: "We may find in the long run that tinned food is a deadlier weapon than the machine-gun." It was a warning, essentially, that technology, no matter how much it makes life easier, also has an uncanny ability to strip away the essence of the human experience in ways that are difficult to detect before... | more...
