Real Life Rock Top 10

Neko Case kills you softly with her song; The Be Good Tanyas wait around to die; Patricia Tallman confronts the living dead

 

8) James Mathus Knockdown Society,"Stop and Let the Devil Ride" (Fast Horse) If the appropriation of old country blues by the White Stripes or the Be Good Tanyas bothers you, here's what it sounds like when it's done without wit, imagination, or a decent beat. The devil wouldn't be caught dead riding with these guys.

 

9) Yeah Yeah Yeahs,Fever to Tell (Interscope) The feeling of people pushing through a crowd, when there's no crowd.

 

10) Charles Taylor, "Chicks Against the Machine," Salon (April 29) A steely, cant-destroying account of how and why, after their Primetime interview with designated patriot Diane Sawyer and their naked Entertainment Weekly cover, the Dixie Chicks can now open their shows with "I Won't Back Down"--and close them with Natalie Maines announcing "Our final encore tonight is gonna be 'Dixie.'" "After all," Emily Robison or Martie Maguire can say, "it was Abraham Lincoln's favorite song."
