In a world in which grindy punk bands are a dime a dozen, it helps to have a niche--and in a market that's finally waking up to women's buying power, the photogenic quartet Girls Against Boys has the distinct advantage of being among the few groups that play boy rock for chicks, as demonstrated by the seductive sonic assault of its latest album, "Freak*on*ica."

BASEBALL ALL-STAR URBAN LEGEND : Major League Baseball Commissioner Ford Frick overturned the fan voting for two Cincinnati Reds in the 1957 All-Star Game. Ted (Big Klu) Kluszewski was a slugging first baseman for the Cincinnati Reds during the 1950s. A popular player, he was an All-Star in 1953, 1954, 1955 and 1956. However, in 1957, Kluszewski was injured most of the season, so his back-up, George Crowe, became the everyday first baseman for the Reds, and it was Crowe who was on the All-Star ballot as the Reds' first-base representative.

The happiest quarterback in the land Friday was Doug Flutie, who agreed to sign a contract with the New Jersey Generals that will pay him a reported $7 million over five years. The second happiest was Jim Kelly of the Houston Gamblers. Reason: Kelly has a clause in his contract stipulating that he be among the three highest-paid quarterbacks in the USFL. According to Todd Phipers of the Denver Post, Kelly ranked third behind Steve Young of the Express and Brian Sipe of the Generals.

A California state senator introduced legislation Monday that would pave the way for free agency for recording artists, potentially adding fuel to a movement that appeared to be picking up steam in the nation's capital. Sen. Kevin Murray (D-Culver City) launched a bill to remove an amendment to the state labor code that keeps recording artists tied to contracts longer than other workers.

Johnny Temple, co-founder, publisher and editor in chief of the small press Akashic Books, would love to be a full-time publisher, but as yet he can't afford to quit his day job. His day job, as it happens, is playing groove-based rock songs in a successful indie band. As bass player for Girls Against Boys, Temple, 37, leads a life that many 9-to-5ers -- perhaps even some in publishing houses -- can only fantasize about.

You won't find many trench coats, fedoras or Black Dahlias in "Los Angeles Noir," an about-to-be-published anthology of 17 new short stories set in various corners of the contemporary City of Angels. "Los Angeles Noir" is the 13th installment of the series by the maverick Brooklyn-based indie Akashic Books. It's also the first to be set in the city that effectively invented the genre.

Pete Rose's first professional lie was told at the suggestion of Phil Seghi, a member of the P Cincinnati Reds' front office. Rose was 19 in 1960, but Seghi considered 18 a seemlier age for a recent high school graduate. So, on the day he signed his first baseball contract, Rose turned 18. He had been kept back a year in school. While the work might have been made up during a summer session, that was the baseball season. Rose's father instructed him to repeat the grade and play ball.

To my youthful eyes, the Coliseum, with its dull gray exterior and looming presence, didn't seem to offer much in the way of enjoyment when I first saw it on a sunny, summer day in 1958. That quickly changed as my father led me up stairs that seemed to reach to the sky for my first Dodgers game. I remember walking down the long, dark tunnel at the top of those stairs. There was light at the end of that tunnel, offering the promise of something special.
