Special to The TimesTestifying to the ongoing Invasion, the kingdom's sounds enliven clubs and Angelenos find a cultural kinship. In a town where you can practically dance to the beat of the boom-bust cycle, and six months is a good run for a club night, one part of the...
Times Staff WriterWhen a great artist from one decade returns to action in another, the best that can usually be hoped for is a reasonable approximation of the old brilliance. Prince's comeback tour last year may have been wonderful, but he still wasn't the man with the...
TIMES FILM CRITIC"What is it you do in life?" Lola asks Hlynur. "Nothing." "What kind of nothing?" "The nothing kind of nothing." Hlynur is not exaggerating. The protagonist of "101 Reykjavik," possibly the first and certainly the most successful Icelandic slacker...

Tribune staff reporterGorillaz fans who sold out the Aragon Ballroom Sunday night did not hallucinate. The record did not skip. British pop sensation Gorillaz actually repeated not one, but two songs —"5/4" and star-making hit "Clint Eastwood" — during its encore. Perhaps...

On Café Tacuba's fifth and latest album, "Cuatro Caminos" (MCA), the Mexican quartet once again ventures outside its comfort zone to find the "very moment when the floor beneath us ends." That line, from the album's final song, "Hola Adios" (Hello...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 19, 1996 Exuberant and pitiless, profane yet eloquent, flush with the ability to create laughter out of unspeakable situations, "Trainspotting" is a drop-dead look at a dead-end lifestyle that has all the strength of its considerable...
