UNDERRATED The return of Kevin Kline : Sure, Kline hasn't exactly gone anywhere, given his splendid turn last year as Cyrano on PBS' "Great Performances," but we've missed his sterling timing in absurdist comedies such as "Soapdish" and "A Fish Called Wanda." Later this month brings "The Extra Man," an indie with a killer trailer that finds Kline effortlessly flexing those chops as a prickly middle-aged escort. Welcome back, Kevin. Do stay awhile. Josh Clayton-Felt : Hard to believe, but we're 10 years removed from the death of this L.A.-based singer-songwriter, who led the equally underrated '90s power-pop band School of Fish.

"Hi Josh ... We were blessed with a beautiful snowstorm on Saturday. I love how it makes the city clean and sparkly in the brief moment before it gets brown and slushy. Kinda magical. Your spirit still makes the city more beautiful every day, and unlike snow does not get brown and slushy at all. Can't wait to hear your voice again. Love, Eden."

"I still look 14 years old; I still get carded all the time," lamented singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Josh Clayton-Felt. He is actually 28, and it's true: He doesn't look it. More to the point, he doesn't sound it. "Inarticulate Nature Boy," his first solo album since the breakup of his old band, School of Fish, calls to mind neither a boy of 14 nor a man of 28.

Life ain't worth living Without a little love But a little love is never enough. --del Amitri * The black cloud that hovers over your house and mine probably originated in Scotland over Justin Currie's place, the penman of sad songs that are smartly done by his tight band del Amitri.

Getting its labels in order Don't envy the Jealous Sound. Sure, the future looks bright for the L.A. foursome -- its debut album, "Kill Them With Kindness," a crackling collection of resonant rock, is due June 3. And the band moves into the spotlight Monday at the Palace opening for indie darling the Postal Service. How the Jealous Sound arrived, however, is a test of mettle.

There's the sociology of sports, social psychology, cultural anthropology and, for the purposes of this column, ichthyological musicology. Huh? Translation: Why are there so damn many rock 'n' roll fish bands? There's An Emotional Fish, Fishbone, Jellyfish, Country Joe & the Fish, Vicious Fish and, even locally, we have Sinister Fisch or those Fabulous Fish.
