Neither of them is a musician. Neither is a songwriter or composer. Neither is a singer. Yet they've made what in some key music circles is one of the most-discussed albums of the year. Before you say Milli Vanilli, don't worry. If these two get a Grammy, they won't have to give it back.

"Has anyone had as nice a day as we have?" asked Guy Garvey, the endearing, rumpled singer of the young English band Elbow, from the Troubadour stage on Tuesday. "I doubt it." That kind of genuine, naive charm was the Manchester quintet's secret weapon Tuesday, a winning setup for the blindside sock of its musical creativity and emotional depth. Think of Elbow as Radiohead with puppy-dog cuddliness rather than distancing wariness.

When UNKLE mastermind James Lavelle and musical partner Richard Fine get behind the DJ decks for a multimedia "decks and effects" extravaganza at Pearl in West Hollywood at 9 tonight, it will be the culmination of a long road to America.

The just-released Queens of the Stone Age animated video for its new song, “Keep Your Eyes Peeled,”  begins with the caption, “A man walks into a bar,” and things turn way bad, way quick. If there's a punch line in the three minutes that follow, it involves blood, fists and violence. But then, the Palm Desert-born Queens of the Stone Age's metallic, barbed rock music has long addressed sour times, with heavy but bouncy notes and pounding, distorted chords, all propelled by a rolling vibe that's smooth and well-lubed.

Nope, it's not Bono. This is Shakira. The singer, who has featured an antiwar video segment in her shows since November, is disturbed that so few of her young pop peers are speaking their minds about current events, whatever their positions may be.

December 15, 2001 | LEWIS SEGAL, TIMES DANCE CRITIC
The most cohesive moments in "Strange Attractors" came in a line dance at the very beginning, with choreographer Stephen Petronio and his eight-member modern dance company fluidly slumping, rising, stroking one another, reaching out and withdrawing to the rock accompaniment of Placebo's "Without You I'm Nothing." No steps, just convulsive changes of position and a growing intensity from this cluster of bodies.
