Though all three members of Shoes are gifted power pop songwriters, the production on their albums has always been a little too slick, burying some potential classics under too thick a layer of gloss. As a result, the 1995 live album Fret Buzz is absolutely essential not only to Shoes fans, but to those on the fence about the Zion, IL, homeboys. The album title, taken from a particular type of guitar feedback, is appropriate: for all the polish and control of Shoes' studio albums, these are surprisingly rough-edged performances. We're not talking Metallic K.O. or anything like that, but it's surprising and refreshing to hear the occasional bum note or slightly off-harmony vocals. Split roughly equally between the three singer/songwriters, the 12 songs cover all phases of their by this point two-decade career, largely foregoing hits like "Tomorrow Night" in favor of less well-known album tracks. The stripped-down sound really benefits the songs, and had Shoes not chosen to follow Fret Buzz with the most extended layoff of their career, it would have been interesting to see how the boys followed it up.

The Prince of the 80s

In the family of funk Prince Rogers Nelson was a genre all by himself. In 40 years of career, he managed to mix the legacy of the founding fathers (James Brown, Sly Stone and George Clinton) with influences like rock 'n' roll, electro and even jazz. An exuberant and stunning groove that shone mainly between 1978 and 1988...

The Women of Nashville

It's not easy to elbow your way through the macho Music City scene, the birthplace of country music, when you're a woman. Over the years, some of them have nevertheless managed to shift lines and attitudes, like these ten pioneers and revolutionaries who have put – even stamped – their boots on Nashville's table.

Alice Cooper Doesn’t Run from Danger

The Alice Cooper story is, first and foremost, an extraordinary tale of “split personality”. Like something straight out of “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”, singer Vincent Furnier surrendered to the domination of showman Alice Cooper. But by his own admission, the man who always speaks of “Alice” in the third person in interviews remains a simple, completely normal guy in private, far from the stage where he enacts his excesses and provocations. Throughout a career stretching over 50 years, there is an evident streak of schizophrenia in his many stylistic changes. While we credit him with the invention of shock rock, he has ventured into almost every genre with varying degrees of success, from pop to nascent hard rock, with forays into heavy metal, new wave and industrial…
