Brit Acts Hope To Reconquer The Hot 100 BY GORDON MASSON, MELINDA NEWMAN, and PAUL SEXTON LONDON U.K. pop music losing its

fabled grip on America? The country's cultural relations with the U.S. have always been newsworthy, and nothing unites the U.K. media like a negative story. So the news that for the first time in almost 40 years there were not any U.K. artists on The Billboard Hot 100 for two consecutive issues dated April 27 and May 4 generated reams of probing headlines, column inches, and the collective gnashing of teeth about the "death" of British music. "Americans celebrate success; we tend to celebrate failure," says Colin

Lester of Wildlife Entertainment, who manages Craig David, one of the handful of breakthrough British artists in recent years whose success flies in the face of such a reaction. The chart run

enters the Hot 100 at No. 84 (see Singles Minded, page 57). Optimistic commentators also point to an encouraging schedule of releases in the coming months by artists with

Additionally, such acts as Oasis, BBMak, Beth Orton, Badly Drawn Boy, Morcheeba, and Doves are revisiting the U.S_ with new albums, while hopefuls Ed Harcourt, the Music, Al, LostProphets, and the Electric Soft Parade are among those trying to establish fan bases in America. Several initiatives backed by the U.K. government aimed at boosting the British presence in the U.S. are

emerging, while charts worldwide have showcased writers Paul Barry and Mark Taylor-on hits by both Cher and Enrique Iglesias -and Cathy Dennis and Rob Davis, composers and producers of Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You out of My Head" (Capitol), which peaked at No. 7 on the Hot 100. Minogue's continuing presence on the Hot 100 represents a hit very much made in Britain, and the Australian artist's resurgence in fortunes owes much to the hard work of Par lophone in the U.K. Andy Slater, who became president of Capitol U.S. one (Continued on page 70)

Dead Live On In Touring Legacy the subsequent breakup of the band.

BY RAY WADDELL

Over the course of the long, strange history of rock touring, there has never been an act quite like the Grateful Dead band which, largely

Its devoted followers-the celebrated Deadheads who

without the benefit of the Internet, hit albums, radio airplay, music videos, or even mainstream acceptance, grew steadily for 30 years to become one of the top touring acts ever.

Spawned from San Francisco's 1960s counterculture scene, the Grateful Dead had built a touring industry unto itself by the mid- 1990s. Stadium level stalwarts reliant on neither current albums nor popular whim, the Dead grossed $285 million from 1990 to '95, well more than any other act during that period. Nearly 8 million people saw the Dead's 530 -plus concerts in the five years preceding frontman Jerry Garcia's death in 1995 and

not only followed the band from concert to concert but also built a cottage parking -lot industry-still exist, as evidenced by an active Internet presence, plentiful album reissues, and a continuing audience for surviving band member projects. But a multitudinous live manifestation geared toward one band, such as the Dead enjoyed, does not currently exist. Rather, the ongoing legacy of the Grateful Dead is a thriving yet splintered "jam band" scene led by such artists as Trey Anastasio, his band Phish (currently on open -ended hiatus), String Cheese Incident, Widespread Panic, Dave Matthews Band, and others.

Working In The House Wanamaker Built "The merchant," wrote legendary department store magnate John Wanamaker in the 1920s, "must be big enough, broad

enough, far-seeing enough to survey the whole field and then stand as a bulwark amid the confusions, heresies, and fears of his times." These words come to mind amid this era of upheaval in the entertainment, retail, and media spheres because Billboard and the rest of the VNU Business Media family (whose properties include Back Stage, Amusement Business, Kirkus Reviews, The Hollywood Reporter, Editor & Publisher, Adweek, Brandweek, Watson -Guptill Publications, Display & Design Ideas, Architecture, and Retail Merchandiser) has been headquartered since June 2000 in the legendary Wanamaker building, which occupies the entire block of Eighth and Ninth streets between Broadway and Astor Place in Greenwich Village. The mammoth ivory-stone edifice was once America's largest department store, a New York satellite of the retail empire developed by Wanamaker, the German Scotch son of a Philadelphia bricklayer. As a budding mass merchant, Wanamaker transformed his lucrative trade in the Civil War-fueled innovation of standardized army uniforms (he himself was exempt from the draft due to ill health) into the peacetime production of men's and boys' clothing. The Philadelphia shopkeeper-turned-department-store-visionary-who also greatly improved the efficiency of the U.S. Postal Service while postmaster general from 1889 to 1893 -extended his retail realm to New York in 1896, two years after the founding of Billboard. The elegant, high -ceilinged structure was Wanamaker's flagship emporium, and it featured a huge restaurant, a 1,300 -seat auditorium, a soaring atrium containing a 24 -room mansion's worth of home -furnishing displays dubbed "The House Palatial," and a pioneering charge- account service for the daily swarm of patrons. Atop the building was a transmitting station for the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co. When British ocean liner RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic on the night of April 14-15, 1912, after hitting an iceberg, one of the three telegraph operators on duty at the Wanamaker building's Marconi station the next day was young David Sarnoff (future president of Radio Corp. of America and the creator of the National Broadcasting Co.). Sarnoff and his co-workers "captured scores of messages concerning the wreck," according to accounts of the horror in the New York American newspaper, which negotiated an arrangement with Wanamaker that secured exclusive rights to the Titantic-related intercepts of ship -to -ship telegraph relay reports. A distraught Vincent Astor, the son of author /inventor/SpanishAmerican War veteran Col. John Jacob Astor IV, ran into the Wanamaker lobby seeking information on the plight of his father, who had been a first -class passenger on the Titanic along with his second wife, Madeleine. She was saved in Lifeboat No. 4, which had been gallantly reserved for women and children. But the colonel went down with the 1,495 others who perished on the great liner, his body recovered by the cable -ship McKay-Bennett and reaching New York May 1, exactly 90 years ago this week.

It seems odd that a joint box -office /record- business bonanza like Paramount Pictures /20th Century Fox's 1997 Titanic film and Sony's soundtrack album could earn hundreds of millions of dollars and rekindle a global cultural obsession and yet inspire scant lingering reflection only a few years later about the tragedy

itself. We can reap cash from romanticized calamity and then coldly re-shelve it. Perhaps it's a reminder that, in the words of George Bernard Shaw, "There are two tragedies in life. One is to lose your heart's desire. The other is to gain it." The Fates are eager and unsentimental in the modern world of media and entertainment, where supposed strategic corporate marvels like AOL Time Warner and Vivendi Universal post first- quarter losses of $54.2 billion and $15.4 billion, respectively, as each reduces

the value of their recent rites of conglomeration. Vivendi must yet reduce $29 billion of debt, but the charge AOL Time Warner took is truly epic when one realizes it exceeds the corns bined profits generated by Time Inc., Warner, or AOL in their entire separate or amalgamated existences. Meanwhile all the half-baked Internet/broadband/ telecom schemes that both conglomerates were grafted together to exploit still remain flighty, at best. In its own fashion, the Wanamaker building has seen such main-chance media hustling before, having been the location -during the 1950s TV boom of the scrappy, low-budget DuMont Network. The original "fourth network" that aimed to take on CBS, NBC, and ABC, DuMont was compelled to utilize UHF affiliates at a time when UHF was a poor risk, and it finally folded in 1956. But while at their Wanamaker address in the early '50s, the DuMont studios were the site of two of the most popular TV shows in the land: Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen's inspirational Life Is Worth Living (which consisted of little more than Roman Catholic sermonizing before a grammar-school -type blackboard), as well as Captain Video, a cut rate children's "space opera" whose intergalactic props were usually concocted from the tubular piping and spare car parts for sale in Wanamaker's hardware and automotive departments. As for the Wanamaker stores themselves, the chain continued to define exceptional urban retailing in America through the post-World War II period, with John Wanamaker III serving as president of the family firm. But the New York store was sold in 1955, and the landmark Philadelphia building was taken over by Lord & Taylor in 1997. By then, of course, founder John Wanamaker was long gone. In December 1922, as construction had begun on an expansion of the Wanamaker complex between Broadway and Astor Place, Wanamaker penned a note to the commander of the Salvation Army in New York, saying, "Conditions continue that seem to tangle up the world and business, but God lives and loves his people, and better days are coming." On December 12, Wanamaker died in Philadelphia at 84 due to complications from a bad cold. But he left behind a droll homily about the fortunes of being an entrepreneur in the quest for fickle, demanding consumers. "I know half the money I spend on advertising is wasted," he once mused, "but I can never figure out which half."

His final thought says it all: True happiness and great popular music come Paul Brubaker from "an educated heart." Montclair, NJ.

I have to strongly disagree with Steve Martin of the Agency Group, who stated, "I think the agencies probably spend more money as far as man hours developing artists than labels or promoters." There're countless hours of investment by label personnel involved in finding talent, recording, mixing, packaging, advertising, marketing, radio promotion, securing P &P, building Web sites, shooting videos, booking TV, tour support, etc. Let's not forget all the empty seats a promoter has to eat when they're developing an artist in their Harvey Leeds respective markets.

fifth Star Wars motion picture soundtrack becomes the fourth in the series to break into the top 10 of The Billboard 200, as Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (Sony Classical) bursts onto the chart at No. 6. The first Star Wars soundtrack remains the highest -charting set of the series. Later called A New Hope, that initial album spent three weeks at No. 2 in summer 1977. The second -highest charting album of the five soundtracks is Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, which cruised at light speed to No. 3 in May 1999. In third place is The Empire Strikes Back. That soundtrack to the second Star Wars film peaked at No. 4 in 1980. The only album to peak outside the top 10 is the soundtrack to the third of George Lucas' epics: Return of the Jedi had to settle for a No. 20 posting in 1983. On the Top Soundtracks chart, Clones has enough of the force behind it to enter at No. 1, knocking The Scorpion King off its throne after only one week. The Scorpion King toppled 0 Brother, Where Art Thou?-which dominated the chart for 33 non -consecutive weeks. It is thus only the third soundtrack to top the album chart in 2002 and the eighth since the chart was initiated in June 2001.

Along with the Pet Shop Boys, there are debuts this issue from Elvis Costello (see Over the Counter, page 57) and Sarah Brightman. The former Mrs. Andrew Lloyd Webber opens at No. 146 with Encore (Really Useful/Decca Broadway). Bright man's best performance to date on the album chart is the No. 17 peak ofLa Luna in September 2000. Encore, her sixth album to appear on The Billboard 200, enters the Top Classical Crossover chart at No. 2. Brightman usually peaks at No. 1 on this chart, but she had the bad luck to debut the same week as the soundtrack to Star Wars Episode II:Attack of the Clones, which has a Death Star grip on No. 1.

Sony Alters Latin Model Sony Music Sur Blends South American Operations MIAMI-As

Sources say there is some movement between the Recording Artist Coalition (RAC) and major labels in discussions about changes in the damages section of the industry's carveout in California's seven-year personal contract law. That statute allows a label to sue an artist who leaves after seven years for all potentially optioned undelivered albums.

ed no change. Now, negotiators have proposed that a label can sue if there is even one undelivered album; RAC has proposed that a label only be allowed to sue if there are two. No

If negotiations fail, California State Senator Kevin Murray (D- Culver City) will ask for a committee vote later this month on his pending bill to remove the industry carveout.

HARM Backs Singles Letter Urges Labels

To Keep

BY ED CHRISTMAN

NEW YORK -With no noticeable increase in singles releases yet occurring since retailers made impassioned pleas to the majors to save the dying

configuration at the the National Assn. of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) annual convention in March, NARM has sent a letter to labels reit-

erating why a thriving singles marketplace would be beneficial to the health of the industry (Billboard Bulletin, May 1). Moreover, NARM is taking its case to the public by issuing a press release on the subject. In it, NARM president Pam Horovitz says that in a song-driven market-

Horovitz said in a statement, "Ifyou want young people to get into the habit of paying for music and not think of it as being for free, we must offer them as many opportunities as we can to buy music at entry-level price points they can afford."

NARAS Enters A Post-Greene Era BY MELINDA NEWMAN LOS ANGELES-National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS) chairman of the board of trustees Garth Fundis, along with CFO Susan Leary, COO Paul Tsuchiya, and other key senior management staff, will be running the day -to -day duties of NARAS following president/CEO Michael Greene's resignation April 27. NARAS director of communications Ron Roecker says a search committee is being assembled to find a new acad-

emy head. The issue will be discussed further at an already- slated trustees meeting set for the third week of May in Hawaii. Greene, who headed NARAS for 14

years, resigned during an eight -hour emergency board meeting in Los Angeles, which was called to disclose the findings of a sexual harassment investigation ordered by the trustees after the nonprofit group paid $650,000 to a former NARAS staffer who had accused Greene of sexual abuse. Greene denied the allegations, as well as two other sexual abuse accusations by former employees. According to a statement by Nashville based record producer Fundis, the investigation "revealed no sexual harassment, no sex discrimination, and no hostile work environment at the Recording Academy." Roecker declined to comment on why Greene resigned if he had been found innocent by the probe. The sexual abuse settlement was one of several red flags raised concerning Greene during the past several years. In 1997, Greene signed a record deal with Mercury Records but never released the album he recorded after he came under fire for potential conflicts of interest. He has also been criticized for the high percentage of money raised by NARAS' charitable arm MusiCares that went to administrative costs. Additionally, Dick Clark sued Greene earlier this year, alleging that Greene interfered with the Clark- produced

American Music Awards (AMAs) by telling artists they could not perform at both the AMAs and the Grammy Awards. On April 30, Clark said through a statement that following Greene's resignation, it would "probably not be necessary" to go forward with a suit now. Despite such turmoil, Greene is also credited with greatly increasing NARAS' profile and pocketbook. The nonprofit organization grew from 3,500 to 17,000 members and saw its assets increase from $4.9 million to $50 million during his reign. Last year, Greene also renegotiated a deal with CBS which broadcasts the Grammys) that reportedly pays NARAS more than $20 million annually. Greene, who is reported to be receiving a settlement of up to $8 million, will continue to work out of NARAS' Santa Monica, Calif., offices as a consultant on a full -time basis through September and on a part time basis until after next February's Grammy ceremony, according to Roecker. Roecker would not comment on Greene's severance package. But NARAS members say they find such a payout, if the amount is correct, to be out of line. "I'm troubled by anyone getting rich in the nonprofit sector where revenues are supposed to be diverted to worthy pursuits," one NARAS member and 2001 Grammy winner says. Another voting member agrees. "I think Mike's done a really good job, but what I don t love as a member of the organization is the severance package. That seems outrageously rich." In an e-mail sent to many of his business colleagues April 28, Greene wrote, "With the investigation behind me and soon looking squarely into the face of 14 years as Academy president and being the Grammy guy, [my resignation] was a decision that my boys and I came to last week and are very much at peace [with] ... It's all good, honest!" Neither Greene nor Fundis had returned calls by press time.

TLC's Lopes Remembered As `Brilliant' BY RHONDA BARAKA RASHAUN HALL

-The world of R&B and hiphop was dealt a crushing blow with the April 25 death of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes. A member of the Grammy Award -winning trio TLC, Lopes died in a car accident while vacationing in Honduras. Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs, who produced "No Scrubs" and was tapped to work on the new TLC album, describes Lopes as "nothing short of brilliant."

doing. Whatever she did, she planned it, she focused on it, and she made it work to her advantage." Former TLC manager Ian Burke says Lopes "was a special individual" who'd "give you the shirt off her back." According to reports, Lopes, 30, was in Honduras on vacation with her family when the driver of her rental car lost control and crashed on a highway a few miles from her condo. Lopes rose to fame with TLC in the early '90s. The group scored its first hit in 1992 with "Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg," which peaked at No. 6 on The Billboard Hot 100. The group's three albums, 1992's O000000hhh ... On the TLC Tip, 1994's CrazySexyCool, and 1999's Fanmail, sold more than 14 million

It was rumored that Lopes had signed a solo deal on Suge Knight's Tha Row imprint. Knight would not corn ment on the signing, but he did release a statement regarding Lopes' passing. "Even though [Tha Row] cut songs with her, the last thing on my mind is to release any material right away ... I think that it is a sad thing to turn tragedy into treasure." Antonio "L.A." Reid, president/CEO of Arista Records -label home to TLC -also released a statement: "Lisa was not only a gifted and talented musi-

cal inspiration, but more importantly, she was like a daughter to me." Her fellow band members and lifelong friends Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas released a statement via Bill Diggins, their current manager and president of Diggit Entertainment: `We had all grown up together and were as close as a family. Today we have truly lost our sister." Via her publicist, Thomas added in a statement: `People think of Lisa as the crazy one in TLCwell, she was crazy, but in a good way. She was a wonderful, loving, and creative person who was real smart ... I will never get over this. Every day, I just have to try to figure out how to get over it. "As for the new CD, Lisa had already recorded three or four tracks, so she will definitely be on our next album, and it will be dedicated to her," Thomas continued. "I know she would not have wanted us to stop recording. As for her

Maverick's Ndegéocello Returns Little Big sown Hits Nashville Foursome's Harmony-Rich Monument Debut Is Due In May With 'Anthropological Mix' ... BY PHYLLIS STARK

BY MICHAEL PAOLETTA

NEW YORK-"There's no mistake in the color that it is. It's infused with black -born musicalities," Me'Shell Ndegéocello says of her new Maverick

album, Cookie: The Anthropological Mixtape, before reeling off such artistic influences as Richie Havens, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Miles Davis, Joan Armatrading, Tracy Chapman, and "the one I love, Prince." Due June 4, Cookie "is all my experiences,"

the artist continues. "I wanted to show all the transitions, from Southern stride to gospel to blues to funk. Musically, it comes from the African Diaspora. It's my im-

and music I love. It's the world through my eyes; a chapter in my memoirs. Perhaps others will also feel what I'm feeling." Apparently, others are "feeling" Ndegéocello's music (published by Warner/Chappell). "I'm impressed with her work in general," says Joe Lambert, co -owner of Creative Music in San Francisco. "But this new album is easily her strongest outing to date. It's a musically diverse recording that has the potential to reach a very wide audience without alienating her core fan base." "Pocketbook" was sent to urban radio the week of April 8; it will go

such stations as WBLS New York and WUSL Philadelphia. "The track is a healthy marriage of Me'Shell's funk and today's hip-hop," WBLS PD Vinny Brown notes. "By hooking up with Tweet, Redman, Missy Elliott, and Rockwilder for `Pocketbook,' Me'Shell may very well find herself with new fans. Those who aren't hip to her past will now be introduced to her." Maverick GM Fred Croshal says, "I can only smile when I hear such things. This is the type of album-because Jigs zany sounds -that we'll be able to made u._iss all frontiers." On May 14, the art' (wl o is managed by Kofi Taha of Humility Profits in Los Angeles and booked by Jonathan Levine of Monterey Peninsula Artists in Monterey, Calif.) kicks off a 15 -city tour in San Francisco that lasts until June 4, which is when she's confirmed to appear on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Immediately following, Croshal notes, Ndegéocello will perform a "late set" at the Roxy in LA. On June 5, she will appear on Last Call With Carson Daly. On June 11, the label will issue Ben Watt's uptempo remix of the track "Earth." Promo singles of the mix were sent to club DJs last year, label marketing director Holly Adams explains.

lo, whose three previous Grammy Award -nominated albums (1993's Plantation Lullabies, 1996's Peace Beyond Passion, and 1999's Bitter) were produced by David Gamson and Craig Street, among others. Recorded in the heart of San Francisco's funky Tenderloin district ( "The studio was in the booty of the Tenderloin. That neighborhood is the vibe of this record "), Cookie features numerous guests, including Tàlib Kweli, Caron Wheeler, Lalah Hathaway, Michael Hampton, and writer/ activist Angela Davis. The set's first single, the Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott and Rockwilder remix of "Pocketbook," features Redman and Tweet. Its video was directed by Liz Friedlander. Lyrically, Cookie is thoughtful, provocative, and sincere, with the singer/songwriter/bassist tackling a range of topics from love, lust, and sex to politics, consumerism, and religion.

NASHVILLE-Picture a group with the physical make -up of the Mamas & the Papas or ABBA and a sound reminiscent of the Eagles or Restless Heart, and you've got Little Big Town. But there is nothing contrived about this Southem foursome, which came together in 1998 when its members realized their voices blended into a sound that was something unique in country music. With the singers switching off lead vocals multiple times --all within the same song-Little Big Town's members (Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Roads, Phillip Sweet, and Jimi Westbrook) are fond of saying of their sound,'The harmony is the lead singer." Roads says the group decided early on not to have a lead singer, but the Music Row establishment had a hard

time with the concept. "In the beginning, peoLITTLE ple really questioned that and said, `You can't make a whole record when you don't have a lead singer,' " Roads recalls. But, Fairchild adds, "we are world -music fans, so we've heard it done before. It may not have been done much in this format, but we knew we could do it if we do what the song calls for and make sure we're protecting the lyric. So we just stuck to our guns on that one, even when people said, `You're going to have to pick someone to sing lead.' We [said], 'No; just watch and listen to what we're going to do.' And luckily, it's been the very thing that attracts people to us." After a false start at Mercury Records that ended because of a difference in creative vision, Little Big Town signed with Sony Music Nashville's Monument Records in 2000 and will release its eponymous debut album May 21. At Sony, the group has been given unusual latitude in following its crealive muse for a new act: It co-produced its album and co-wrote six of its 11 songs. Also guiding the album were producers Blake Chancey and Paul Worley, associate producer David Lyndon Huff, and mix master George Massenburg. As for who sang what, the group decided to let that evolve naturally. "It's not like we started out saying we each would sing 2.5 songs,"

/GO TO

Fairchild says. "We just said, 'Let's take it song follow whose voice fit what song by song and and what part of what song.' " That approach made for a lengthy recording process, as the group experimented with differ ent voices in different parts. Another reason the record took a year-and -a -half to record is that the group realized that the typical Nashville record ing process of "musicians first, vocals later" wasn't working for them. Fairchild says, "We wanted the tracks to have drama, so we said, `Let's try to do it backwards. Why not start with a layer of vocals with full arrangement and acoustic guitar ?' Then [we could] bring in a " drummer, bass player, whatever we wanted after that." m

BIGTOWN

Little Big Town (which is booked by Creative Artists Agency and managed by Rendy Lovelady) says the al-

bum benefited from that experimentation. Sweet says, "It was a new experience for [Chancey] to have four lead singers, so it was a very open, free kind of, `Let's all experiment; let's work till we get it right [environment]: " Westbrook recalls, "There was an open policy of, `If we have an idea, let's try it, and if it doesn't work, it doesn't work' " First single "Don't Waste My Time" jumps 40-37 on this issue's Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. The group, which collectively writes for Warner/ Chappell, wrote the song with Irene Kelley and Clay Mills, and it has attracted radio's attention. "I'm a believer," says WSM -FM (Live 95) Nashville PD Kevin O'Neal. "I feel these guys and girls are gonna be huge. The harmonies are great. They catch you right off the bat. I think it's something we need [in the format]." Eric Logan, operations manager of country stations WQYK and WYUU Tampa, Fla., agrees. "I love this band.

K's Choice Eyes `Happy' Return To U.S. Red Ink/Sony CD, Band's First Offering In 4 Years, Features Bonus Live Disc BY ANDREW KATCHEN

60 songs of material spanning

BOSTON has been four years since folk -pop act K's Choice last released an album in the U.S., yet the band has stayed active in Europe and in its Belgian homeland. They've kept busy by embark-

four studio albums from which it could incorporate into a live performance. While past K's Choice efforts have balanced agitated, post grunge rock with folk, jazz, and blues rhythms, Almost Happy eschews the distorted guitar and volume almost completely-opting for a calmer, more gentle listening experience. The album begins with a brief recording of a 5- year -old Bettens,

Most importantly, in 2000, the band recorded its fourth studio album Almost Happy released the same year in Europe via Double T Music. Sony Music International and Red Ink have announced a Stateside release of Almost Happy for May 14a date shortly preceding the band's May 28 arrival as an opening act for the Indigo Girls North American tour.

pitter-pattering drums down to a subdued crescendo. The album's most poignant and stunning moments, however, rest in the three, consecutive songs occupying the disc's middle section: the stark yet rich and stirring ballad "Live for Real," the breezy, Nashville- flavored "Somewhere," and the glowing, basement -jazz club number "Home." POIGNANT REFLECTIONS

Bettens attributes the album's pensive qualities to the life reflections she made at the time. "I was definitely going through a phase that I felt like I'd missed out on a part of my youth," she says. "I was 20 when I dropped out of college,

and I realized that starting a real responsible career at that age was kind of soon. I had a time in my late 20s when I felt like, `Did I miss out on that

Singer /guitarist Sarah Bettens resides in CaliU.S. audiences may remember K's Choice primarily for its 1996 haunting anthem "Not an Addict" or from its performances on the Lilith Fair tour. However, Bettens views these upcoming dates as a welcome challenge to reacquaint Americans with its sound. "There's something nice about it [being the opening act]; if it was a struggle everywhere, it wouldn't be so nice," she says while in France during a recent tour. "We can play for 2,000 people in Holland, and then go to another country and play where we're not so big and completely start over again. Going back to the States [is] a nice transition because you're reminded that what you do is often a challenge. I've always loved being the supporting act; it changes things up a bit. If we were playing stadiums every night we'd also be happy, but then what would be our goal after that ?"

tic brush strokes, and Betten's engaging smoky voice (often strongly reminiscent of Sarah McLaughlin), and the track shows the ability of K's Choice to create a wistful mood not overburdened with despair. The title track emerges from hushed acoustic strumming, and it momentarily taps into crunch and- crashing drums before Bet tens' sleepy delivery guides the wiry, smoldering guitars and the

feeling [ "Almost Happy "] will get played because they are so talented," she says. "I think their fans are still there. It's really hard to say, though, because the format has gotten extreme." Fram adds, "However, over the past six months singer/songwriters like Phantom Planet and Pete Yorn have helped make the radio landscape a bit different." Bradley Andrews, a manager for a Virgin Megastore in Los Angeles,

concurs, noting that "the landscape is getting increasingly wide, allowing a variety of bands to grab attention. If the label is crafty in their marketing of the band and this record, they could find a sizable audience. It's a great record, and it deserves to be heard by as many people as possible." K's Choice is booked in the U.S. by Dan Weiner for Monterey Peninsula Artists.

Beat_ NAMELESS: Santa Barbara, Calif. -based Motograter is the first band signed to a new joint venture formed between Elektra Entertainment Group and No Name Music, the management corn pany founded by Steve Richards. Richards, who formerly managed Slipknot and who now represents No One, Hatebreed, and American Head Charge, says he linked with Elektra because the label seemed the most committed. "We had a lot of offers, but basically [Elektra chairman /CEO] Sylvia Rhone and [executive VP] Josh Deutsch were really intense and they wanted to win. Elektra doesn't have a ton of rock, but they have metal gods like Metallica and AC/DC. I feel like they're a major label, but they have a boutique feel." Most releases from No Name Re-

cordings will be promoted, marketed, and sold by the Elektra staff and will be funneled through WEA Distribution; however, some projects will be treated as indie releases and will be worked by the No Name staff and go through WEA indie arm ADA. Richards says he expects his existing staff to handle the label. "We also have a really strong street team that has tons of kids. It's like they're our scouts. Hopefully, that's how we'll find some of the bands, but right now, we've got so many tapes we can't even listen to them." No Name's label deal with Epic for Mudvayne remains in place. the Blowfish have wrapped up the recording of its first set of new material for Atlantic since 1998'sMusical Chairs. Recorded at a small studio in Venice, Calif., and at the Record Plant in Los Angeles with GONE FISHING: Hootie &

producer Don Was, the songs are instantly recognizable as Hootie -fare,

with the writing among the band's strongest in years. Top tracks include beautiful ballad "Tears Fall Down," the uptempo "Space," the rollicking "Little Brother," and "The Rain Song," a cover of a tune by the Continental Drifters. "We just wanted to go in and make something refreshing for us and the fans and not really worry about relying on anyone else for success," drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld says. "We just wanted to feel good about the music. Even in the unsure climate of radio and the industry, it's exciting to

be diving back in headfirst."

That last sentence sums up the band's predicament. Here's a group that has sold more than 20 million albums, yet radio may not even give them a chance because they aren't new or hip enough, instead of judging the band solely on the basis of its music. The still -untitled album, which is slated to come out later this year, will be preceded by lead singer Darius Rucker's solo album, Back to Then, which arrives June 25 on Hidden Beach Recordings. First single "Wild One" goes to radio May 20.

`California' Gives Epic's Phantom Planet Long-Desired Boost BY ANDREW KATCHEN

Mitchell Froom and Tchad Blake is an all- inclusive range of instrumentation, from piano to mandolin to electronic beats, rounding out the earnest batch of tracks. For a band that's trudged through relative obscurity and label shuffling since its formation seven years ago, the guys in Phantom Planet have reason to be excited. When discussing the band's past, Greenwald reminisces about the lengths he once employed to promote Phantom Planet's music. "On our first tour, which was with American Hi -Fi, we had an EP out (titled Phantom Planet Live via Day light/Epic), and we really wanted to show the label we had some selling power," he says. "At shows, I would announce -sometimes drunkenly, sometimes not-that if a girl bought 40 copies of the EP, I would make out with her." However, for Phantom Planet, this strategic measure is no longer necessary, given that The Guest sold 10,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week, according to Sound Scan, and it shows no signs of slowing down.

What hasn't changed is the act's powerful, modern sound -an accessible fusion of edgy nu -metal riffs, aggressive rhythms, and infectious vocal melodies.

Launch/Yahoo Music demonstrate Alder's continued growth as a lyricist. He says he's both grateful for and proud of having an additional outlet to express himself. "I'd see it through beginning to end, and I loved doing it," he says. "It's like starting all over again." Metal Blade president Mike Faley says the label will do whatever it takes to make sure the self-managed Engine will be both seen and heard this year. "It's inspiring to see the talent coming into this record, going forward, and coming out with a new sound," he says. "There's a pedigree between Joey and Ray as far as their

history with Fates Warning, but that's where all the comparisons end. From that point on, the music stands on its own." Superholic is a "must for any fan of the smarter side of metal," says Tim MacMillian, metal MD at KYYI Wichita Falls, Texas. "Rarely do you find such a killer blend of today's groove -metal sound with the technical supremacy of Fates Warning." Alder says the group hopes to start touring this summer, while Face to Face has its own new album to support. "Pete's very important, but his band is obviously his bread and butter, and he's totally cool if we have to go out with another drummer for a while," he says. "But we have to go on tour, and we're just trying to find anybody that will somewhat match up to what we do."

In the process, by pulling out of

productions that did not meet their exacting standards, they have earned a reputation as being demanding, even difficult. It's a story with all the trappings of movie stardom, so it was perhaps only a matter of time until opera's "love couple" made the transition to the silver screen with a new film version of the Puccini potboiler Tosca. The recording was issued by EMI Classics last

November; the film (which hit screens in Europe late last year) opens in the U.S. in July. Oddly enough, director Benoit Jacquot was not especially an operaphile when he set out to make the film, according to the couple, but they feel that this worked to everyone's advantage. "He's a movie director," Gheorghiu says, "and he has the courage to do something new in opera. When [others] produce an opera, they have very `straight,' typical operatic ideas. Jacquot used the camera and new ideas in a very modern way." Jacquot's film presents a beautiful, highly stylized vision of the opera. The action takes place on disembodied sets surrounded by darkness that characters emerge from and disappear into. Black and -white footage from the recording session is interspersed into the action, and in one instance, Gheorghiu and Alagna speak their lines over their own

singing. Extreme close -ups of the performers alternate with lengthy overhead crane shots. However, even with such peculiarities, the acting of the principal performers carries the film. Alagna is a tender, lyrical Cavaradossi, but doesn't lack for ardor in the opera's more heated moments. Gheorghiu's portrayal of the titular diva captures perfectly the character's vulnerability, uncertainty, and strength. Veteran bass Ruggiero Raimondi -who bears an odd resemblance to actor Dennis Hopper in the film-plays the lecherous Scarpia with malicious glee. He and Gheorghiu are riveting in their climactic confrontation in Act 2, while scenes between Alagna and Gheorghiu naturally gain an extra measure of passion from the couple's real -life connection. Of course, Tosca has already been well -served on recordings, but the husband -and -wife team asserts that it remains important for new generations of singers to perform the standard repertoire. "In this type of repertoire, sure, you have ghosts," Alagna says, "but they are not bad ghosts. If we listen to Callas or Pavarotti or Caruso, [we] can learn something and follow tradition. It's very important to follow tradition but at the same time to put something of yourself into the role." The couple has a number of more traditional projects in the pipeline. Gheorghiu's Live From Covent Garden, issued by EMI on CD Tuesday (7) and due on DVD May 21, features repertoire ranging from Handel and Mozart to Bellini and Frederick Loewe. Alagna will release a bel canto recital disc July 2, and a recording of Verdi's II T ovatore featuring the pair is scheduled for September release (both on EMI). Still, despite the challenges, they are eager to continue exploring the possibilities of cinema: They've already filmed a version of Gounod's Romeo and Juliet for British and Canadian TV

and are enthusiastic about the potential for opera to reach a wider audience through film. "I think it was very important to do a new opera movie," Alagna says, "because otherwise, opera will remain old -fashioned. A lot of people start to sing because they saw [such] movies. When I saw The Great Caruso with Mario Lanza for the first time when I was 10 years old, that was the moment I said, `OK, I want to do that.' " Gheorghiu adds that Tosca is already realizing that potential. "In Paris," she says, "I saw a queue like the one for Titanic!" BILLBOARD

FAREWELL TO `FELICITY': The col-

lege soap opera Felicity may be canceled, but fans can remember the series through a new soundtrack, Felicity: Senior Year, due May 7 on

Nettwerk America. The WB series -starring Golden Globe award -winner Keri Russell as the title character, Felicity Porter-followed the ups and downs of a love triangle between Felicity and her fellow college students, Ben Covington (played by Scott Speedman) and Noel Crane (Scott Foley). During its 1998 -2002 run (the series finale airs May 22), Felicity received a

In 1999, the WB's Dawson's Creek prominently featured Sixpence's "Kiss Me" in the show, as well as clips of the music video at the end of the program. That exposure helped propel the single into a No. 2 hit on The Billboard Hot 100, more than a year after the single's release. 'We knew the TV show made an impact because we had a lot of people ask-

ing us to autograph the Dawson's Creek soundtrack," Nash says. ( "Kiss Me" was featured on the soundtrack.) "Being featured on a TV soundtrack opened up new opportunities for us." Of "Melody of You," Nash says that the song- featuring an acoustic

guitar base and classical string instruments -is an indication of the direction of the band's music on the new album: "People can expect a more mature sound, and it's very well- honed. We finished this album two-and -a -half years ago, but we're in the process of adding songs and doing remixes." considerable amount of critical praise and high ratings for the WB during the show's first season, but the ratings and media hype had considerably cooled down since then. The series is bowing out in its fourth season, mirroring the final college year for the Felicity character. (Reruns of Felicity can be seen this fall on the cable network WE: Women's Entertainment.) As with other WB shows targeted to young people, music has been an important component of the Felicity series. The first Felicity soundtrack, released in 1999 on Hollywood Records, peaked at No. 97 on The Billboard 200. The 13 tracks on Felicity: Senior Year are Jude, "King of Yesterday"; Sixpence None the Richer, "Melody of You "; Ryan Adams, "La Cienega Just

Smiled "; Chantal Kreviazuk, "Far Away"; Shawn Colvin, "Anywhere You

Go "; Andy Stochansky, "Here Nor There "; Natalie Merchant, "Tell Yourself"; Barenaked Ladies, "Call and

Answer "; Shelby Lynne, "Bend "; Kendall Payne, "Scratch "; Maren Ord, "Perfect"; 54'40, "Casual Viewin "; and J.J. Abrams & Andrew Jarecki, "New Version of You." The tracks by pop -rock band Six-

The music on Felicity: Senior Year is primarily from the show's last season, says Nettwerk head of soundtracks Maria Alonte, who was also both soundtracks' album producer. "The Sixpence None the Richer song reminds me a lot of the Felicity character, who's an aspiring painter. The song has references to painting in the lyrics." Nettwerk will concentrate a great deal of its marketing efforts for the album on the Internet. Alonte adds, "We have banners up on the Felicity Web site, and we're also spreading awareness to all the fan sites for Felicity. There's even a fan site, felicity-

tunes.com, which is all about music from the show. A TV spot for the album will also run during one of the series' last episodes. "It's sad that the show's going away," concludes Alonte, "but this soundtrack is like a scrapbook or a yearbook that people can turn to for memories." Music from the children's TV series Bob the Builder has been a hit in the U.K. and Australia, and now the U.S. will have a Bob the Builder soundtrack, due May 21 on Koch Entertainment. Koch president Bob Frank tells Billboard that the album's first single, "Can We Fix It," has an e -card that "will allow streaming of the song on the Bob the Builder Web site and other [parent- oriented] sites. There will also be cross -promotion with HIT Entertainment, which releases Bob home videos." In the U.S., the series is on CBS and on cable network Nick Jr. A Bob the Builder tour is in the works.

Israel's Independence Day Suffers No-Shows Important Music Industry Date Feels Effects Of Widespread Unease After Security Alerts And Terrorist Attacks BY SASHA LEVY

TEL AVIV, Israel -Traditionally, Independence Day is an occasion for

Israelis to gather and listen to free concerts by top local musical acts hired by municipalities to entertain their residents. The date was April 18/19 this year-is one of the most important on the calendar for the local music industry.

-it

This year, as a general security alert was issued in expectation of further ter-

rorist attacks, the 54th Independence Day was anything but a cause for celebration for local artists and highlighted the difficulties live acts have faced in the past 18 months. Citing security

concerns, municipalities canceled long -planned events on short notice. Izhar Ashdot has spent 20 years in the Israeli music business, first as a

member of 1980s rock group l'islam. then as a solo artist and producer for such artists as the late Ofra Haza. "Independence Day is an Israeli show- business institution. Municipalities, kibbutzim, and other institutions would buy shows at higher than -usual rates," Ashdot says. "It used to be very important financially, because you could earn more in one night than you could in several weeks. But the last couple of years have been terrible." This year, only three cities allowed outdoor events to go ahead as planned: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Rishon Lelion. Other towns moved concerts to more easily guarded venues

that hold fewer people. But the

majority -an estimated 70 % -of towns throughout the country, from

Haifa in the North to Be'er Sheva in the Negev, canceled their events with three or four days' notice, leaving artists uncompensated. (Ashdot himself was booked for two gigs; both were canceled.) And for those lucky enough to be able to continue with their performances, fees have fallen. Top female performer Sarit Hadad might have commanded $10,000 for her appearance in Kfar Saba had her show not been dropped. But the average artist

can expect to make only $1,0002,000 per show. Ashdot says, "The live performance situation is the worst it's ever been because of the security and economic situations and the mood of the country." The most prestigious venue in Israel is the Caesarea Ampitheater,

!am-Band Fans Are Ready For Bonnaroo BY RAY WADDELL

NASHVILLE-Anyone doubting the vitality of today's jam -band scene need look no further than the Bonnaroo Festival, a first -time event set for June 21 -23 in rural Manchester, Term., that sold out its 60,000 tickets without the benefit of traditional advertising. Produced by Superfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment, Bonnaroo has a still -evolving lineup featuring a veritable who's who of the contemporary jam -band scene, including Trey Anastasio, Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Gov't Mule, Ben Harper, Les Claypool's Flying Frog Brigade, Moe, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Galactic, Jurassic 5, Norah Jones, and others. That a new festival in an out-of-theway location with no established history was able to move so many tickets in such a short period of time is impressive by any standard. By compari-

son, the long -established Coachella rock fest in Indio, Calif.-with names far more recognizable to mainstream music fans (including Oasis, Björk, and Foo Fighters this year) -draws 20,000 -25,000 each day at best. New Orleans -based Superfly president Jonathan Mayers says even organizers were caught off -guard by the immediate response. "We knew it would do well, but I don't think anyone in their wildest dreams thought it would sell out this quickly, especially without traditional promotion and without announcing all of the bands," Mayers says. "We had an advertising budget and a second round of advertising planned with print, radio, etc., but we never had to implement it." Instead, Bonnaroo used its own Web site and other Internet destinations like jambands.com and the various band's sites to get the word out and sell tickets. "We're fortunate that this fan base is so connected through the In-

18

ternet," Mayers says. The whole thing was very cost -effective." The quick sellout led to Bonnaroo's tickets being some of the relatively few in the U.S. that won't say "Ticketmaster" on them. "We had negotiations with Ticketmaster and intended to sell

tickets through them -or at least make them available through Ticket -

master," A.C. Entertainment president Ashley Capps says. "But quite frankly, we came out of the gate so strong, we never had to do that." Initial tickets -including camping and all three days' worth of music were sold at $100, followed by a group

for $125 and finally $140. Even those not directly linked to the festival's production have been impressed by how quickly it went clean. String Cheese Incident agent/manager Mike Lupa

says, "Bonnaroo could have sold 200,000 tickets." John Paluska, manager of Phish and Anastasio, adds, `Bonnaroo is a great case study. Here is a festival in a time of mixed results that goes up with no previous track record, offers some of the better-known bands of this genre, and sells out at 60,000 tickets in a very short time." Capps says, "The foundation of this festival conceptually is this special group of artists and their fan base. They certainly sell records, but I think most would agree their music is about the live concert experience, and they've established a very strong rapport through touring. Now, with the Internet, they're even more connected to their audience, and their audience is connected to one another."

which holds 4,000. Ashdot reckons that only Rita, Yehuda Poliker, and Shlomo Artzi can fill it, and that after those three, second -tier artists

COME TO TENNESSEE

Located about an hour south of Nashville, this is not the first time that the Manchester-area site of Bonnaroo has hosted a music festival. But the 1999 Itchykoo Festival held on the same property was deemed less than successful. Still, Bonnaroo's producers feel they made the right choice, and

the fact that just half of sales have come from the Southeastern U.S. bears that out. Mayers says, "We felt this scene had a void in it for a major festival, and we wanted something that would take it to a different level, particularly in the Southeast." The overall budget for Bonnaroo is more than $5 million, including talent. "We're looking at creating a small city that will take care of people for three days the right way, and that takes a lot of money," Mayers says. "Music is the biggest element of Bonnaroo, but it's also about the camping, DJs, festival village, and lots of surprises." According to Mayers -who says there are plans to make this an annual event-the term "bonnaroo" was pulled from a Dr. John record. "It's a slang creole term meaning `really, really good stuff.' We wanted a word that reflects fun and having a good time, and we felt this was a word we could really brand." At press time, Bonnaroo producers were looking into securing more land for the event, perhaps opening up as many as 10,000 more tickets. The production manager is Haddon Hipsley (Phish); security is by industry veterans Bart Butler and Rick Rentz. 'We have surrounded ourselves with the A team," Mayers says.' With an event of this magnitude, we wanted no learning curve." Mayers says taping will be allowed at the festival, and plans also call for a documentary to be filmed of the debut Bonnaroo: "This is an important event, and we need to document it."

may attract audiences of around only 500. Ticket prices for local acts vary from $17 -$20. At one time, the Caesarea Amp itheater also hosted such major foreign acts as Sting, brought in by impresarios like Shuki Weiss and Zev Eiziks. Now, those acts have vanished, with the exception of the U.K.'s Ian Brown -formerly of the Stone Roses -who is slated to make an appearance at Tel Aviv nightclub Dinamo Dvash. Shuki Weiss Promotions and Productions has been operating in Tel Aviv for 25 years, during which time it has brought in such artists as David Bowie, R.E.M., and Suzanne Vega. 'We were heavily booked until about a year- and -a -half ago," Weiss relates.

"Then the intifada [uprising] broke out. Even so, we brought in Atomic Kitten and Westlife for a youth concert in Tel Aviv's HaYarkon Park, with an attendance of 25,000." The first cancellation was Red Hot Chili Peppers last August. "They showed great interest in coming-one of the band members is an ex- Israelibut a spate of terrorist attacks on consecutive days and the mood of the

country made them, together with their management and record corn pany, decide to cancel. Since then, it became even more difficult to persuade others to come." Until then, Weiss was doing around 70% of regular business capacity; now 90% of his shows cancel or postpone. In the future, he foresees difficulties for promoters: "Our break -even point is way beyond American or European break -even points." And the Israeli shekel has depreciated by 10% against the U.S. dollar in the past 18 months. Before then, international acts commanded $27 -$37 per ticket. CONDITIONED RESPONSE

Foreign acts may be scared off, but local performers brush aside fears for their personal safety. Rocker Rami Kleinstein says, "I don't feel any dan-

ger. If I've a show to do,

I say,

`This is

my country. I stand here.' " Ashdot echoes the sentiment. "I live here -why would I be afraid to perform here ?" Perhaps more than in other countries, the state plays a considerable role in the promotion of popular music. The Fourth Hebrew Song Fes-

tival, expanded this year from one week to one month, opened April 24 with such major artists as Kleinstein, Arkadi Duchin, Shlomi Shabat, and Henri Rodner making appearances throughout the country. Organizer Tali Eshkoli admits the situation regarding large events is very difficult, "because people are afraid to go out. But smaller events are very successful. The demand for entertainers is very high. We're a special situation. Popular music in Hebrew unites the people and gives them expression, and the state recognizes that." Artist manager Nomi Alshechwho handles artists like Kleinstein and Rita-agrees that the situation is not entirely bleak. Rita and Kleinstein, each of whom has a separate and highly successful career, are also Israel's top husband -and -wife team. "There are good times and bad times. Before the outbreak of the second intifada, it was very good,' Alshech notes philosophically. "One can never say, `Things

can't get any worse.' But hopefully they will get better."

Since the events of the past few weeks, Weiss describes the situation as "drastic. I can't ignore the general atmosphere. When regular Israelis are fighting in the army, it's hard to find the passion to go out to a concert. Personally, I haven't felt the passion for organizing concerts for the last six weeks. But I keep in touch with management, and it will come back." That said, Weiss points out that local acts continue to perform. One of his top acts, Rami Fortis, was recently booked to perform in Bé ersheva on the night of z terrorist attack in Jerusalem. After considering cancellation, it was decided to go ahead with the concert. "It's clear some people are looking for an oasis of forgetfulness: The concert was a sellout." Weiss emphasizes that Israeli concert security is probably the best and most professional in the world and also boasts unique venues, including such sites such as Masada and King Solomon's Mines in the Negev, Sultan's Pool in Jerusalem, and the Sea of Galilee in the North. Such outdoor venues can easily hold 50,000. "Security is of the highest level," Weiss adds. "And coming here and addressing audiences would express your feelings much better than not coming. We don't separate crowds here. In Haifa, for example, Arabs and Jews come together to listen to music. Music speaks louder than words." BILLBOARD

Operating revenue is projected to be $3.4 million for the arena and $387,000 for the fairgrounds, with an operating budget of $2.5 million for the arena and $1.3 million for the fairgrounds. Larimer County Fair manager Bob Holt plans to use the new arena to upgrade his paid concerts. The first fair will be in 2004. This year, paid grandstand shows include Andy Griggs, with tickets priced at $10 and $12. Global Spectrum regional VP Dean Dennis says Global partnered with ICC, owners of the resident hockey team, in a joint agreement to operate the arena. The building will have 23 luxury suites and 500 club seats.

$29 million, 6,000 -seat Budweiser Events Center is part of a $682 million Larimer County Fairgrounds project in Loveland, Colo. On April 20, the county broke ground for the new arena and announced that Global Spectrum has been selected for a pre- opening management agreement, which is set to roll into a full-fledged management deal for the events center only. The building will open in October 2003. Meanwhile, a group of private businessmen revealed plans to build Harley Park, the world's largest Harley-Davidson dealership, 400 yards away from the Lorimer County Fairgrounds. That project is to include a 5,000 -seat amphitheater. Jay Hardy, director of the Lari-

mer County Fairgrounds and Events Complex for the county, believes that the additional construction "would enhance the viability of the fairground location." Hardy says the fairgrounds are being financed through a sales tax that was passed by voters on the condition that the project raise $3 million in private donations. Budweiser's title sponsorship of the arena (which went for a total of $1.5 million spanning 20 years) was key to getting the private donations rolling. The private side now totals $9 million, which means a few more projects can be added to phase one. Noting that Budweiser got a good deal on the title rights, Hardy says it was necessary to close that deal, with the deadline looming just three weeks after the terrorist attacks last Sept. 11. Since then, the county has been shopping naming rights for other buildings on the fairgrounds at full market value. He is pleased it is one of only two entertainment facilities with an AnheuserBusch title. (Busch Stadium in St. Louis is the other.) Hardy says that of 243 available acres, 150 are being developed in phase one. He is hoping a hotel and convention center will occupy the remaining 93 acres.

The decision has been made to continue with evening concerts only at the livestock show, says Jeff Gaines, assistant GM at Reliant Park for SMG. That "tradition" began when construction limited parking two years ago at the Astrodome, and all parties agreed the new formula works. When Reliant Park opens, Houston will haw two domed stadiums side by side.

Maintaining your artistic identity while growing as an artist is often difficult. Musiq ably handles that task on this, his sophomore set for Def Soul. The beauty of the singer /songwriter's 2000 debut, Aijuswanaseing, was its simplicity. That directness continues to shine through on Juslisen. Lead single "Halfcrazy" is a bona fide hit at radio.

GOMEZ In Our Gun PRODUCERS: Gomez Virgin Records America 7243 8 11950

On its latest outing, former Mercury Music Prize winner Gomez attempts to expand its unique blend of blues, roots, and soul by dabbling in everything from dub to electronica. The result is a slick, curious concoction that sounds like Dave Matthews crossed with the Beta Band. While Gomez shows a wide range of influences and an ability to effectively genre -hop, the band is so consumed by tinkering with new sounds that it never quite carves out an identity of its own here. The addition of horn flourishes ( "Shot Shot"), synth waves ( "Ruff Stuff'), and dub beats ( "Army Dub ") make for more interesting experiments than bold new statements. Occasionally, the band pulls it off, as on the bouncing folk tronica of "Detroit Swing 66." But by and large, the set's strongest moments occur on primarily acoustic -driven songs like the title track and "Sound of Sounds." On such tracks, Gomez stops trying to be something else and simply enjoys being Gomez.-BG

Something of a spiritual Replacements reunion (supposedly with bassist/catalyst Tommy Stinson in tow), Mono has a vintage rock'n'roll majesty to it; the bruised melancholy in Westerberg's voice and the virile bite of his electric guitar -as well as the tuneful wit of his best songs in ages and the one-take urgency of the band -hark back to the Replacements' Tim and Pleased to Meet Me.

"Take some time and forget about time." That line from the spoken -word prologue to album track "Maybe" outlines exactly what will happen when listeners take this disc -Downing's CRP debut -for a spin. Longtime fans

of the veteran vocalist's contemporary jazz- spiced R &B will revel in his cover treatment of the Main Ingredient's "Just Don't Want to Be Lonely," Quincy Jones' "If I Ever Lose This Heaven," and Michael Jackson's "I Can't Help It." Equally as potent is his signature smooth vocalizing on such original numbers as the entrancing "Bolero Nova," the playful "Don't Talk to Me Like That," and soothing lead single "Cool Water." After misstepping in 2000 with the Motown album All the Man You Need, Downing returns to the roots he sowed in 1998 with sax man Gerald Albright on the Verve collaboration Pleasures of the Night. Hopefully, with this release, newcomers will finally hear what all the fuss has been about. -GM

Highly regarded as both Jones- meetsJagger, singer and powerful songwriter Jim Lauderdale has long had the respect of his peers while operating largely under the commercial radar.

"Morning" is a likable, punchy ode to easing into one's day, and the title cut melds Allman -style guitars with Appalachian drive. "Rollin' the Dice" and "New Cascade" are roadhouse rock and spiritual bluegrass, respectively. Varied but always honestly and masterfully delivered, Lauderdale has constructed

"Another Cold One" and "One Bad Habit" slice

Stampley rocks hard and with country edge, but when he steps out and shows a softer side he actually makes his case a little better. Still, if country needs anything right now it's a big of shot of testosterone, and Stampley proudly swaggers on such Southern rockers as "One Shot," "I Know What You've Got up Your Sleeve," "Bad Girl (Looking for a Good Time)," and the imminent hangover song "Waste of Good Whiskey."

Naxos World 76012

Bhangra is the traditional folk music

and dance of the Punjab region of India. A celebratory music associated with the annual harvest, its poly rhythmic vibe, centering around the dhol (two- headed drum), is clearly intended to induce dancing. Immigrants brought the music to England decades ago, and Kiss Records-one of the leading South Asian labels in the U.K. -has been a prime site for bhangra artists. The tracks featured here were chosen from the sides of 10 Kiss artists and provide a fine bhangra sampler. Stylistic variations are noticeable. "Sounds From the Des," by Balbir Bittu, evinces a pronounced North African influence, while K.B. & the Gang's "Nachde Punjabi" shows an affinity for electronica and turntablism we associate with Asian underground acts such as Joi. Soni's "Doli" fuses a traditional song and a pop arrangement. Distributed by Naxos of America.

HAYDN: Symphonies Nos. 6, 7, 8 Freiburg Baroque Orchestra PRODUCER: Martin Sauer Harmonia Mundi 901767

The 31-year -old Joseph Haydn, newly engaged as vice Kapellmeister by the Austro- Hungarian house of Ester házy (which would employ him for much of his life), was given the corn positional task of following up Vivaldi's perennial The Four Seasons with a sequence of symphonies evoking the times of the day. The project yielded a trio of works -Symphony No. 6 "Le Matin" (Morning), Symphony No. 7 "Le Midi" (Noon), and Symphony No. 8 "Le Soir" (Evening) that constituted the young Haydn's boldest entry yet into the realm of orchestral composition. With the concertante feel of the Baroque concerto grosso, these symphonies abound in alternately graceful and energetic passages for solo string instruments and winds. A joyous character predominates, with even the lovely slow movements being more sanguine than solemn. Playing without a conductor (as Haydn led the works from the violin), the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra performs this inventive music with real

Surround sound has found another recording to portray more fully and accurately than two channel delivery formats ever could: The multi -layered harmonies featured on Songs for Survivors fully find their mark in this setting. Surrounded by speakers, it is often difficult to know exactly from which direction a voice originates. Not that it matters; Nash, with help from vocalists David Crosby and Sidney Forest, creates a lush environment in which to lose oneself.

presented with greater artistic realization in this format. The pièce de résistance, of course, is "Bohemian Rhapsody."

talents of Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, Saliva's Josey Scott, Soundgarden's Matt Cameron, and Theory of a DeadMan's Tyler Connolly, the track features the expected melodramatic passion of Kroeger's voice, à la "How You Remind Me "; in fact, in addition to singing the song, the hot rocker wrote, produced, and masterminded the collective effort. The song's emphasis line is "I'm so high I can hear heaven," followed by an epic chorus that takes on the perils of broken love. Add to all that the backing of no fewer than four record labels-Roadrunner, Columbia, Island Def Jam, and Sony Soundtrax -and you simply can't miss. This one could give Kroeger the same kind of cachet that Rob Thomas earned through his endeavors sans Matchbox Twenty, but in any case, it will set Nickel back apart from the bountiful herd of new rock outfits elbowing for stardom. This "Hero" is heading for the top of the heap. -CT

such appealing qualities. American radio could sure use a little uptempo pop shake-up to take to the beach, particularly given that programmers shunned Cher's airwave- igniter "(This Is a) Song for the Lonely" boo, and Anastacia is here to make the sun burn even brighter. This song is a runaway reaction record; for God's sake, just play the damn thing. From the upcoming Freak of Nature, already one of the year's biggest albums in Europe. -CT

After teaming with 'N Sync, Britney Spears, and Aerosmith and stealing the show on the "What's Going On?" charity single, what is there left to do for a platinum -selling rap star? If you're Nelly, fresh off a hit making guest turn on 'N Sync's "Girlfriend" remix, you re -team with super producers the Neptunes-who also produced the aforementioned track -for the lead single from your forthcoming sophomore effort, Nellyville. The result is "Hot in Herre," another party anthem that will be blasting from cars and trucks all summer. The Neptunes put their usual synthedout stamp on the track, and when combined with Nelly's sing -song swagger, you get an undeniable hit in the making. Lyrically, "Hot in Herre" isn't reinventing the wheel, but the St. Louis native's affable voice more than serves its purposes as the driver of the infectious track. With "Hot in Herre" already receiving a good deal of attention at both urban and top 40 formats, it looks to be only a matter of time before Nelly-who scored his first No. 1 with "Country Grammar"-makes his return to the top of the charts. The perfect summer anthem, "Hot in Herre" is just that -hot! -RH

returns with a similarly appealing outing, "Somewhere in the Middle," a midtempo pop- rocker that showcases the grade-A vocals of lead/lyricist JR Richards, along with accomplished guitar work (and a pretty good U2 imitation) and organic percussion from his four bandmates. Richards sings with a taut edge about a relationship enduring its share of highs and lows, leaving him lodged "somewhere in the middle of us." The song is well- constructed with a headstrong melody that could easily make the grade at modern AC /adult top 40 radio if given the proper push by indie Immergent. The guys sound good-it's a pleasure to hear something new. -CT

recent successes Michelle Branch and Vanessa Carlton, yet her skater chick image places her as the most youthful and wild of the three. Even at her young age, Lavigne already has created a confident sound, as evidenced on this laid -back cut. Aside from the fun image and writing her own songs, she plays a guitar, and traces of a Canadian accent surface in her ostinato -heavy vocals. Her debut album (Let's Go, due in stores June 4) is a pet project of Arista chief Antonio "L.A." Reid, so with this muscle behind it, all signals point to "go" for Lavigne. -EA

PUBLISHERS: EMI April /PhilVassar Music/ BMG /Mrs. Lumpkin's Poodle, ASCAP Arista 69141 (CD promo)

Phil Vassar's self- titled debut album has been certified gold, spawned five hit singles, and earned him a nod in the top new male vocalist category at the upcoming Academy of Country Music Awards. This wonderful new single is the first taste of his forthcoming sophomore project, due on Arista in August. The track kicks off with a beautiful trill of a mandolin, then continues to build and swell. By the time the song hits the chorus, the production has escalated into a grand, sweeping backdrop that nicely com3lements the upbeat lyric. Listening to the song evokes the feel of sea spray on faces and the Statue of Liberty looming in the harbor. It's not an immigrant's tale though-it's a personal saga of one man's rise from nowhere Virginia to a life in the spotlight and satisfaction as a father. The lyric will kindle pride in the heats of all who are appreciative of the freedom Americans have to pursue our dreams. It's a winning song, and, as always, Vassar turns in a personality -packed performance. Looks like there's no sophomore slump in sight for this talented singer/songwriter. -DEP

ROCK BUSH Inflatable (4:04) PRODUCERS: D. Szrdy, Bush WRITER: G. Rossdale REMIXER: Alan Moulder PUBLISHER: Mad Dog Winston Music, BMI Atlantic 300784 (CD promo)

The latest single from Bush's Golden State disc finds the band in its mellowest mind -set yet. This ballad, heavy with a luscious string arrangement, explores the more sensitive side of Gavin Rossdale and company. Bush has successfully explored the downtempo realm in the past, on such cuts as "Letting the Cables Sleep" and "Glycerine," yet "Inflatable" presents them in sheer sweetness. Rossdale's delivery of the chorus transforms the lyrical motif in the chorus ( "You're so pretty in white/Pretty when you're faithful ") into a decidedly delicate soundscape, swelling with the strings and the texture of some acoustic guitar strumming. Aside from the lyric, the drama abounds with a false ending, as with the distorted string -bass

introduction. "Inflatable" certainly has promise for the ballad spot on modern rock playlists this spring, but beyond that, this cut could be the one to take Bush back to mainstream radio. -EA

&Deeds.. QUIK COMES AGAIN: A decade

deep in

this business, DJ Quik has a pretty good idea of how things work. So it was only a matter of time before the Compton, Calif., native took matters into his own hands and started his own imprint, Euponic. Teaming with Tony Lane of Laneway Records and Paul Ring of Bungalo Records, the imprint's inaugural release will also serve as his sixth solo effort, Under the Influence (June 4).

Influence will be "Trouble." In addition to his forthcoming set, Quik is also experiencing a resurgence as a producer. As the knob-turner on "Addictive," the ultra -hot debut single from Aftermath artist Truth Hurts, Quik proves he still has some tricks up his sleeve -even if they stump him. "When I first did that beat, it was so tight that I couldn't even think ofwhat to write to it," Quik says when asked why he didn't keep the Hindi -influenced track for himself. "It was just hard to figure out. I knew it was a hit; I just didn't know what to write to it. I let a couple of friends hear it, and they were freaked out about it, too. But we still couldn't come up with anything. I gave the CD to Truth, who is like my sister, and she took it to Dre, who liked it. They took it all the way there." PURPLE REIGN: A few weeks ago, Words

make his hometown proud. Fellow recording the album before I did the Bungalo deal," Quik says. "I did the album without being under the duress of any record company guidelines or deadlines. I did it like a free artist, like I did when I recorded my first record. Three quarters of the way through [recording], I started shopping the album, because I knew it was pretty good. As a matter of fact, it's some of my better work because of the direction I'm taking with the technology and sound, as well as the material and lyrics. "I knew it would work better on an independent than it would on a major," Quik adds. "So I sought out some people and narrowed it down to a couple. I ended up choosing Bungalo only because those are my home boys." Distributed through Universal Music and Video Distribution, the 14 -track set features a diverse roster of guests that includes Dr. Dre and Thlib Kweli. "This record was a magnet for diversity," Quik says. "I totally appreciate what Talib does. I actually broke one of his records [ "The Blast "] on my radio show in L.A. He heard about it through the grapevine, so we met and talked, and as result, we built [a relationship]. I did a record with him for his label, and he guest -starred on my first endeavor as an entrepreneur. Dre produced `Put It on Me,' a serious record that everybody loved, and he let me put it on the album. Then there's Pharoahe Monch, Shyheim, AMG, Hilot of people on this C, El DeBarge record who make it what it is." "I was already

Screwed Up Click affiliate Big Moe is making an impression on the hip -hop game with his recently released Wrekshop/Priority debut, Purple World. Released April 23, the 22 -track set features Houston's signature "screwed up" sound, which was made popular by the late DJ Screw. " `Screwed up' means `slowed down,' " Big Moe explains. "It's just another term for slowed -down music or music on a slower tempo. It got big out here when DJ Screw came out, and a lot of people began listening to their music that way, as well as listening to the regular version." Moe credits Screw with giving many of Houston's up-and -coming acts an opportunity to be heard. "He gave people another outlet. The majority of the people who came out through him weren't really thinking about careers in music, but messing with him, careers were made overnight. His music was going good, and people were hearing our voices on it. It gave us a chance to get known. I always wanted to be in the music business, but I was going to be a singer. When I hooked up with him, he gave me another way." Big Moe first hooked up with Screw on the latter's 3 N the Mornin'. "I did a singing and rapping-type thing like Nate Dogg," Big Moe says. "I went on and took it from there. I just wanted to sing about what's going on out there instead of love ballads." This column is dedicated to the memory of my mother, Juanita M. Hall. Your love, wisdom, and spirit will always be with me. DEDICATION:

along at a better time. For many including this fan, who grew up in Cleveland in the late '70s -the group not only made some of the best dance music around, it did it in a way that encouraged and embraced individuality.

when I think I'm getting tired of `Rock Lobster,' I'll look out into the audience and see how such a song makes our fans all energetic and enthusiastic. Before I realize it, I'm feeling the same way as the fans." In the fall, Warner Bros./Rhino, which released Nude on the Moon The B-52's Anthology earlier this year, will begin reissuing the band's back catalog (completely remastered and with bonus material), beginning with The B -52's, Wild Planet, and Whammy! Yes, 25 years after making their live debut at a friend's Valentine's Day party in Athens, the band is most definitely alive and kicking. "I'll never forget that first show," a smiling Wilson recalls. "The costumes, the wigs was all about

-it

In the land inhabited by the B52's, it was OK to follow the beat of your own drum. If you recall, it was

band ringleader Fred Schneider who shouted on the early track "There's a Moon in the Sky (Called the Moon) ": "Don't feel out of place/'Cause there are thousands of others like you." Yes, with band members Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland, Schneider, Cindy Wilson, and her brother Ricky (who died of complications from AIDS in 1985) leading the way, we were free to be, you and me. And as with any band, we all had our

favorite member. Mine was, and remains, Ms. Wilson, a fierce ruling diva for sure, and the singer of such gems as "Give Me Back My Man" and "Ain't It a Shame." "Oh, those early days were special," Wilson says over lunch at a

midtown Manhattan restaurant. "But at the time, I never realized our music was having such a profound effect on people and their lives. Not until much later [at the fifth annual Party out of Bounds convention held three years ago in Athens, Ga.], when fans were telling me stories, did I see what our music meant to people. It touched me and meant a lot to me." In New York for a week of corporate- sponsored performances, the B -52's are gearing up for a fast approaching summer tour. "We're still having a good time performing as a band," Wilson says. "Each show is like doing a somersault: You always want to get it right. And just BILLBOARD

having fun. We were friends having a good time." Months later, the band trekked to New York, where it played Max's Kansas City. "We were so off the map that the New York crowd didn't know what to make of us," she says. "They were fascinated, yet they maintained their posing. Fortunately, we brought along friends from Athens, who partied while we performed." Now, after 10 offerings from the B -52's- encompassing full -length studio albums like 1986's critically misunderstood but fan favorite Bouncing off the Satellites, EPs, and two greatest-hits collections Wilson, happily married with children, is embarking on the next phase of her life. On Saturday (4), Wilson, sans bongos and tambourine, is scheduled to perform an acoustic set at Atlanta's annual Music Midtown event, which will be broadcast live via Turner South. Accompanied by a harp player and an acoustic guitarist, Wilson says she'll perform "Ain't It a Shame" (sigh), a rearranged version of "Roam," and two new self- penned songs: "Ricky" ("my spotlight song") and "Glittering Children" ("It's me being motherly and spiritual "). "With this performance, I get to stretch and mature as an artist," the singer notes. "It also gives me the opportunity to showcase my original songs -and to croon." According to Wilson, the B -52's won't be recording a new album anytime soon. She says this is because of logistics ( "We no longer all live in the same place ") and the recording process ( "Even though our music is very homegrown, it's actually a laborious process for us "). But she adds, "I am recording a solo album."

NEW YORK-There's a reason why DJ/producer/remixer Doc Martin has aligned himself with London -based Classic Recordings for the release of his new compilation, Sounds You Can Feel, due May 28 (one day earlier overseas) and distributed by New York -based Studio Distribution in North America. "I was so excited and honored when Leon [Oakey, manager of the Classic label] approached me to put this mix together," Martin says. "We share a similar musical aesthetic. Classic's catalog is as diverse as the sets that I play. They gave me freedom to do whatever I felt was the perfect representation of my sound." Sounds You Can Feel, the second

installment in the label's trans Atlantic DJ series (following last year's double-disc set, Thanks for Coming By ..., mixed by Luke Soloman & Derrick L. Carter), is the house music

mainstay's first mixed compilation since his 1996 collection, Unlock Your Mind, on Moonshine Music. A musical celebration that cohe-

sively glides through the vast panorama of dance music, Sounds You Can Feel is a wildly colorful and deliberately quirky, electronic- laced, soul -infused, jazz-disco confection. Much like his live DJ sets, it encapsulates Martin's utopian view of dance music: "When the music's good, it's all one and the same." Highlights include Martin's exclusive remixes of Blaze's "Lovelee Dae," Blakkat Featuring Mark Bell's "Deeper," and the Barrio Brothers Featuring Troy Dillard's "Hold On." UNSUNG HERO

According to Martin, this beat -mixed set is the first of many planned projects between himself and Classic, whose esteemed and esoteric roster includes a diverse collection of artists, including DJ Sneak, Tiefschwarz, Isolee, and Blaze. "Doc is an incredibly talented and eclectic DJ. We really wanted to bring him into the family fold," Oakey explains. "His sound has always avoided pigeonholing and upheld our own credo to release good, timeless music, regardless of the style."

2 Many DJ's, As Heard on Soul wax Pt. 2 (PIAS Recordings U.K. album). Take 45 or so musically disparate tracks, smash them into a 62minute DJ set, and voilà, you have this mind -numbingly twisted disc. At one point, Prince's "Kiss" slides into Divine's "Step by Step," which becomes one with Felix da House cat's "Silver Screen Shower Scene." At another genius moment, Destiny's Child's "Independent Women Part I" cavorts with lOcc's "Dread -

lock Holiday" before seamlessly colliding with Dolly Parton's "9 to 5." Also receiving love is Kylie Minogue, whose "Can't Get You out of My Head" (a hidden track) is given the electro- cution of a lifetime. Brandy, "Full Moon" (Atlantic single). U.K. production outfit Full

A cornerstone of the West Coast's early -'90s seminal rave /warehouse underground scene, Martin (aka Martin Mendoza) is one of house music's most dedicated and largely unsung heroes. He maintains a demanding schedule, dividing time between his Los Angeles-based record shop/label Wax Records (which he co -owns with Chris Pochino); his family; and his recording/DJ career, which involves bi- monthly DJ residencies at London's Fabric club and at Classic's night at the End. A few years ago, Martin's career was put on hold when he was dealt a life -threatening illness: pancreitis. Still recov-

ering, it's Martin's enduring spirit, along with his adventurous approach to all things music, that has garnered him accolades from such formidable dance music pioneers as Danny Tenaglia, King Britt, and Josh Wink. 'We have all heard the word 'journey' used to describe the experience of listening to music played by DJs," explains Craig Richards, resident DJ at Fabric. "In the case of Doc, the word 'journey' actually has meaning, because when he plays records, the listener is taken on a journey where a variety of sounds, tempos, moods, and musical genres are experienced. It's a journey where soulful house appears to be psychedelic and where cold, bleepy electronics feel warm and welcoming." "There's been this misconception that I'm this big rave DJ," Martin says with a laugh. "I've always found it ironic that I've been labeled that when, in reality, I was always the house DJ for the raves." This is a myth Classic hopes to dispel. Oakey says the label will heavily market the disc with the help of street teams in key regional markets like New York; Boston; Washington, D.C.; San Francisco; and Los Angeles. "Our focus is building grassroots support from DJs, clubs, and dance/electronic music tastemakers," he notes. This will include servicing them with a DJ- friendly limited-edition triple vinyl -pack of the album. Martin, who is managed by Amanda Eastwood of London -based Treacle Music (she also handles his international bookings; Pochino takes care of North America), will embark on a DJ tour in support of Sounds You Can Feel. Dates and cities were being confirmed at press time.

Hot Plate Intention injects the title track from Brandy's latest album with ample house attitude, replete with a rubbery bassline and sparse piano work. Mary Mary, "In the Morning" (Columbia single). R &B /gospel duo returns with this fine preview of its

forthcoming sophomore outing. Remixer Maurice Joshua offers two distinctly different journeys: classic (the Nu Soul mixes) and progressive (Nu NRG mixes) house, the latter tailor made for radio and big-room clubs. Anastacia, "One Day in Your Life" (Daylight/Epic single). If that mirror ball is a bit dusty, rest assured: It won't

be, after a couple spins of this disco -

embellished winner. A first glimpse into the artist's second album (Freak of Nature, due this summer), the buoyant "One Day" receives delicious restructurings from M *A *S *H, Almighty, Eric Kupper, and Hex Hector & Mac Quayle. Robert Owens, Love Will Find Its Way: The Best of Robert Owens (Unisex/Demon U.K. album). Owens is one of clubland's most gifted male vocalists and one of house music's true pioneers. On this two -disc set, he is properly served. Choice cuts include "I'll Be Your Friend," "Bring Down the Walls," and "Tears," pro-

duced by, respectively, David Morales, Larry Heard, and Frankie Knuckles and Satoshi Tomiie. MICHAEL PAOLETTA

TRY,

`Stars' Pay Tribute To Willie Nelson BY DEBORAH EVANS PRICE

by Phyllis Stark

Scene,. For a country singer, Kellie Coffey has a very nontraditional background. Few country artists, for example, could say they signed their first publishing deal at a kosher Chinese restaurant in Los Angeles called SONGBIRD:

Ghengis Cohen.

During the several years Coffey lived and worked in LA, she beefed up her résumé with such impressive credentials as singing backup for Barbra

Streisand's millennium album and concert in Las Vegas, touring with Melissa Manchester as a backing vocalist, backing Randy Newman on the 2001 Academy Awards, and writing and performing songs for TV's Walker, Texas Ranger. Her recorded vocals can be heard during shows at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland, as well as in a current Disney marketing campaign.

The Oklahoma native jokes that despite a longtime dream of becoming a country singer, being "directionally challenged" caused her to move to LA rather than Nashville at first. But she says her time out West gave her confidence in her talents. But after making the move to Nashville, Coffey let her country roots shine through. She began getting noticed on Music Row for both her emotional, Faith Hill -style vocals and her songwriting talent. The Warner /Chappell writer co- authored seven of the songs on her BNA Records debut album, When You LieNext to Me, which streets

from a place of contentment. Coffey says that song helped her land a record deal and set the agenda for the rest of the album, which was produced by Dann Huff. "[RCA Label Group chairman] Joe [Galante] has never wavered in thinking of it as a jumping off point," she says of the single. Coffey describes her sound as "soulful country music and heartfelt, real songs." In selecting the tracks for her album she "wanted the songs on there that would move me and touch me. I feel like the songs are little snapshots of who I am and what's in my heart." Coffey spent 11 weeks touring more than 100 country stations to introduce herself and promote the single. She'll spend the summer performing at station- sponsored shows and hopes to join label mate Kenny Chesney on tour for about 60 dates next year. They share the same manager, Clint Higham. Former Giant Records artist Clay Walker has signed with RCA Records. In his eight years with Giant SIGNINGS:

Records, Walker notched four platinum and two gold albums, according to the Recording Industry Assn. of America. On the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart, Walker has had 13 top 10 singles, including six No. 1 hits. He briefly shifted to the Warner Bros. roster after sister label Giant shut down last year. Walker is now managed by Bob Titley of TBA Entertainment after splitting with longtime manager Ery Woolsey several months ago. Veteran artist John Anderson has signed with Audium Records. Anderson first broke on the Billboard charts in 1977 on Warner Bros. and has since recorded for MCA, BNA, Mercury, and, most recently, Sony. He's notched five No. 1 singles on Hot Country Singles & Tracks. His most successful album was 1992's double-platinum Seminole Wind. Lucky Dog artist Deryl Dodd has signed a management agreement with Ben Ewing of Envoy Communications and a booking agreement with the Bobby Roberts Co.

Looking In," recorded as a duet with Lonestar's Richie McDonald, and the first single, 'When You Lie Next to Me," which is No. 20 on the Hot Country Singles & Tacks chart Like many writers, Coffey's songs are autobiographical. She says, "I tend to write [about] where I am in my life." The breakup of a relationship during her senior year in college got

The consensus among the packed audience was that this was the most musically satisfying and technically proficient TV taping ever done in Music City. In fact, only one song had to be repeated during the evening: Harris and Dixie Chicks doing "Roses in the Snow." But after the second

performance, audience members were yelling requests to hear it again.

Adams, Brian McKnight, John Hiatt, Aaron Neville, Sheryl Crow, Norah Jones, Patty Griffin, Hank Williams III, and Vince Gill participated. The calibre of talent on

the guest list is a tribute to the impact the veteran singer /songwriter (who turned 69 April 30) has had on American music. "He's been doing it longer than I've been alive," Matchbox Twenty frontman Rob Thomas says. "He's crossed so many generations, so many genres. He's one of the greatest songwriters, and he's always been a hero at taking songs he didn't write and making them his own. There's something about that voice that makes it unmistakable every time you hear it. And he writes just the most timeless songs." The event gave participants a chance to honor Nelson and create some pretty substantial musical memories. "Jamming with Keith [Richards] was pretty fun," Adams says of performing the Rolling Stones hit "Dead Flowers" with Richards, Nelson, and Hank III. "I'm just thrilled to be a part of this whole thing ... [Nelson] is my grandmother's favorite singer, so I was exposed to [his music] growing up ... I don't think anybody writes songs, plays guitar, or sings like him." Bon Jovi readily accepted an invitation to join in, calling Nelson "a legend, an icon, and a gentleman." Sambora and Bon Jovi joined Nelson to perform "You Were Always on My Mind." "I just went with what my gut told me," Bon Jovi says of selecting the song. "It was my little way of saying I wanted to do something that Elvis did in a place where Elvis got thrown out. It was my rebellious moment." Sambora feels Nelson recorded the definitive version. "The first time I heard that song was probably when Elvis did it, but I think Willie had the most poignant effort on that piece of music," he says. "[With] his reading of it, you felt what the words meant

put in a form that would be appropriate to go back to the artist and hopefully get them to agree to do a DVD ... Then, if we really get fortunate, I think there's a record there. We just have to get clearances from a lot of labels and artists." Participants find it hard to cite a favorite moment in the show, because there were so many musical highlights. They included Dixie Chicks and Nelson singing "Bloody Mary Morning," Nelson and Harris' tender rendering of "Till I Gain Control Again," Thomas and Nelson performing "Maria" (one of three songs Thomas wrote for Nelson's current Lost Highway album, The Great

Willie Nelson & Friends: Stars & Guitars was produced by USA Network and Automatic Productions. Nelson's longtime manager Mark Rothbaum served as the executive producer, with Jeb Brien as director /producer. James Stroud, principal executive of Dream Works Records in Nashville, served as the music supervisor.

MEMORABLE MOMENTS

According to Lewis, there were more performances than a two hour TV show can accommodate, but the decision hasn't been made yet as to which performances will be cut from the broadcast. "We are hopeful that we'll be able to do a DVD," Lewis says, "but we haven't gotten clearances yet. I didn't want to predicate anyone's appearance on the show with a requirement that they sign a clearance for a DVD or a record. We're waiting till we get the thing edited down, mixed, and

docino County Line." (The last two cuts are also from the The Great Divide.) Hank III has trouble picking a favorite moment. "I really liked Aaron Neville's performance," he says. "As a singer, everything that he is pulling off is pretty amazing. Seeing Ray [Price] and Willie together again is really cool. And Norah Jones, I really like her voice too. It's just hard to say, because there's so much talent." Meanwhile, Hank III earned praise from Nelson. "I hadn't heard Hank III before this thing, and I was impressed by him," says Nelson, who also admits it was hard to cite a favorite moment during the show. "I love `Dead Flowers,' `Till I Gain Control Again,"Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground.' There's a lot of good ones." "Singing with Willie and watching Willie and Emmylou Harris was pretty amazing, and I was really taken aback by Lee Ann Womack's `Crazy.' She did a really great job with that," Thomas says, adding that Nelson was the glue that bound so many artists from different genres. "It's kind of like the Beatles. You can't find any genre where somebody is not a Beatle fan almost, and it's the same way with Willie." Bon Jovi agrees. "When I met him for the first time in '85, the beginning of my career, he treated me like I was a major superstar, when we were just an opening act in a little rock band. All these years later, he treats you just the same. "He respects you just the same if you are a big star or not," he continues. "He feels an affinity with anybody who plays a guitar. He's just an easy -going kind of guy. I'm sure somewhere deep in his heart, he knows who he is, but he never, never once behaves like that. He just loves to sing and play. He's inspired by young guys and old guys and new guys and rock guys. That's really something to look up to."

(GMA) president Frank Breeden happily reports that the annual Gospel Music Week gathering held steady with 1,373 paid attendees. There were more than 3,500 participants, including 724

artists. During the event-held April 21 -25- media, publicists, Christian retailers, radio programmers, and record -company personnel were among those attending seminars, showcases, and events at the Nashville Convention

Center, Renaissance Hotel, and Hilton Hotel Suites. The festivities concluded with the 33rd annual Dove Awards, broadcast live on Pax -TV from the Grand Old Opry House. St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner and singer Yolanda Adams hosted the show, where Michael W. Smith, Third Day, and dcTalk's Toby McKeehan were the evening's big winners. DEBORAH EVANS PRICE

He's Able To `Wet' Fans' Appetites For Party Music BY CARLA HAY

NEW YORK-Andrew W K. wants the

world to know that his "party hard" persona is not an act. "Everything I do is 100% from -the -heart genuine," the singer remarks. "Nothing I do is satire or fake." Andrew W.K.'s style of bombastic hard rock is finding a growing U.S. audience, largely due to strong word of-mouth and TV exposure, industry observers say. His debut album, I Get Wet (Island Records), may have invited controversy-due to Andrew W.K.'s bloody face on the cover-but the artist insists: "All we're trying to do is make people feel happy with the music." If people think the music sounds more influenced by Beavis and Butt-head than the Beatles, that doesn't bother Andrew W.K. "My main goal all along," he says, "was to be part of something in which I

Meanwhile, MTV and MTV2 have weighed in with considerable support by making the artist's first video, "Party Hard," a Buzzworthy clip. The artist booked by Creative Artists Agency in Beverly Hills, Calif. expected to be on tour for the rest of the year, including being part of this year's Ozzfest. As for the story behind his 1 Get Wet album cover, Andrew W.K. says he deliberately hit himself in the nose with a brick in order to be photographed for the cover art. "It's my real blood, but I also had on pig's blood that I got from

that's what we're doing with the music: reaching out to everybody, no matter who you are, and inviting them to be included in this party." Many people would never know from his music that Andrew W.K.-who turns 23 May 9-was a classically trained pianist before he turned to the aggressive hard rock he now performs. The "W.K." in his stage moniker stands for Wilkes Krier, the surname of his parents. Having lived in Detroit, New York, and Tampa, Fla., the artist got his big break when Foo Fighters singer/guitarist Dave Grohl invited him to be the opening act at a few Foo Fighters concerts. Managed by T. Silmser in New York, Andrew W.K. had two independently released EPs before landing a majorlabel record deal. He has been a hit act in the U.K. (where I Get Wet was released last year) prior to his U.S.

breakthrough. Released March 26 stateside, I Get Wet debuted at No. 1 on BMI Nashville partnered with the GMA to sponsor the annual Songwriters' Showcase at the Hilton Suites.

the Heatseekers chart in the April 13 issue, and the album held on to the top spot for the subsequent week. I Get Wet reached Heatseeker Impact Status in the May 4 issue, when it rose from No. 110 to No. 84 on The Billboard 200.

Kansas City, Mo., reports, "People are responding to

the music, because it mixes [old- school] rock with current rock." Island

Records president Julie

Greenwald says, "Andrew is a lot smarter and deeper than a lot of people think he is. He has a vision of how he wants to be, and he's savvy and very hands -on in designing things like his Web site and what he has onstage." Although "Party Hard" has yet to make an impact on any Billboard singles chart, Greenwald says that fans will likely create demand for the song to be played more at radio. "The song has taken on a life of its own," says Michele Diamond, PD of modern rock station WROX Norfolk, Va. She says "Party Hard" is currently more popular on MTV than radio because Andrew W.K. "is hysterical to look at, and for his fans, it's all about watching him."

According to Greenwald, Andrew W.K.'s next single will be "She's Beautiful," which will be released "after we've

exhausted `Party Hard.' We're getting thousands of requests to license his music. It's already being used in Coors commercials." The artist's songs are published by Andrew W.K. Music (BMI). Andrew W.K. concludes, "I just want to use the opportunity that I've been given to make as many people feel good as possible and never feel guilty about it." BILLBOARD

Latin Confab To Showcase New Talent BY LEILA COBO MIAMI -The Billboard Latin Music

As with his previous tour, Anthony will perform a mixture of English- and

Spanish -language tracks, including material from his salsa album Libre and his English -language disc Mended, due May 21. "Every time I present myself, I have to present me and my musical life," Anthony says. "It's me. And me singing salsa in Wisconsin means just as much to me as singing 'I Got You' in Puerto Rico." Also this summer, Alejandro Sanz will present an intimate, four-stop tour in San Diego, L.A.'s Greek Theater, New York's Radio City Music Hall, and Miami's James L. Knight Center.

John Lannert, executive producer of Got Música?, says the show's English language subtitles and high video content were instrumental in enabling its broadcast in a general market outlet.

recently, Posse's intuition about Alexandre Pires has been right on the money: His first solo outing in Spanish has sold more than 700,000 copies since its release last September, according to Posse. "He's the first Brazilian artist to sell [such numbers] in Spanish since Roberto Carlos," he says. Pires' eponymous album is currently No. 7 on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart, following a slow ascent that has so far seen domestic sales of 260,000 copies, according to Posse. "I have 20 years' experience dealing with artists in this industry," says Posse, who has worked in Mexico and Argentina, among other places. "A&R is something natural to me, and relationships with countries like Argentina, Brazil, and Central America are also natural to me. But now I'm very focused on the company's business here. This is the

most important Spanish- speaking country. And it's fun, because you have to deal with tropical music, Tex Mex, bachata. And to do that, you have to be very involved in music."

Domestically, the show will be broadcast by the CBS -TV network. livo new categories will be recognized, for best contemporary tropical album and best Christian album, making a total of 41 categories. Nominations should be announced in July. CONFERENCE NEWS: A handful

After a 10year absence from the recording studio (since leaving the spotlight in 1995, he has worked for Interscope Records, most recently as the head of A &R for its dance division), Gerardo has returned with an eponymous album a mix of English and Spanish, dance and rap released in March by Thump Records. Puerto Rican rock band Icaro Azul, which boasts a female lead singer, describes itself as a "post-modem rock band" with three influences: American hard rock, blues, and jazz; more experimental European music, like British pop; and traditional Latin ballads and boleros. At BillboardLive, the band will promote its latest release, Yla Noche Gritaba (And the Night Screamed), on Radical Sonica. After beginning his career as a guitarist and later as a DJ, Spaniard Noel's first solo outing blends Latin pop with R&B and Spanish leanings.

Latin), performing material from their debut albums. Moreno, a Miami native born to Cuban parents, plays music that blends a wide variety of tropical and Caribbean rhythms with a rock'n'roll sensibility. Gian Marco, a Peruvian native who has written for such artists as Marc Anthony and Emmanuel (for whom he penned the hit "Sentirme Vivo" [Feeling Alive]), writes music whose style, if not content, is in the tradition of such

traditional Spanish -language singer/ songwriters as Joan Manuel Serrat. La Mosca performs uptempo party songs, with hits that include "Para No Verte Más" (To Not See You Again).

Following the welcome reception, ASCAP will host an acoustic songwriter's showcase at Yuca Restaurant featuring its writers Nicole Chirino, Claudio Corsi, and Jodi Marr. The objective is to present such budding songwriters as Chirino and Corsi in a setting that enables industry decision makers to hear their new music. It will give additional exposure to established writers like Marr (who has written for Ednita Nazario and Paulina Rubio) and José Nogueras (Olga Tan-6n, Cheo Feliciano). Omar Alfanno will also perform some of his material. Later that evening, Sony Discos will host the official opening -night showcase, with performances by newly

signed artists Alejandro Montaner, Brenda K. Starr (performing with labelmate Victor Manuelle), Angel López, Jordi, and Nayer. Two of them are scions of Spanish pop stars: Montaner, a young balladeer, is the son of Venezuelan singer Ricardo Montaner. Sony will release his debut album in June. Jordi, another balladeer, is the son of Spanish singer Dyango and was previously signed to Fonovisa (his father's label). He'll also release his first Sony disc in the summer. Starr is a veteran of the freestyle and

house music circuit (her '80s hits include "I Still Believe" and "What You See Is What You Get ") who made her Sony Discos debut on Sony Dance last March with a Spanish -language, tropical music album titled Temptation.

Del Río's pioneering songs about family problems, such as "La Hija de Nadie" and "Camas Separadas," have given her a reputation as a ranchero/banda feminist. Her upcoming 40th album, Intrusa, includes the single "Una Intrusa," a duet with Dinorah about two women sharing a man ...

Los Rabanes Unleash `Money For What' BY LEILA COBO

MIAMI -Los Rabanes have long been regarded as a great live band, given

to spontaneous, improvisational per-

formances where audience interplay is almost as important as musical symbiosis. Now, the Panamanian group -which plays an aggressive

ented act before they were picked up by Crescent Moon. But despite the ensuing commercial push and an evolving sound that incorporated a large degree of rap, Rabanes sold only 100,000 copies in the entire region.

musically elaborate and lyrically incisive, highlighting a band in constant evolution.

mix of rock, Caribbean rhythms, ska, punk, and rap-is set to prove that it can do as well in the studio. After their eponymous debut on Crescent Moon Records (which followed two indie albums), Los Rabanes

seem to have hit their stride with Money Pa' Qué (Money for What), an album that goes even further out on a limb in its fusion efforts -adding such folk instruments as accordion and guiro -but that also has a decided commercial appeal. "In the beginning, the idea was to

make it with purely Panamanian roots, which is what I feed on as a composer," says lead singer/composer Emilio Regueira (the other two core members of the band are Chris-

tian Torres and Javier Saavedra). "But I also had an itch as a composer, and we added accordion and reggae and guiro, and it was like a breath of fresh air for the band." Los Rabanes, originally "discovered" by Rubén Blades, gained a reputation as an underground, more punk -ori-

tify with it." Abaroa adds that conversations are under way to use "Everybody" on special TV programs focusing on the soccer championship. But "Everybody" is not typical of the entire album, which is far more

This time, the company has made Money Pa' Qué a priority. The album will be released simultaneously in the entire region, and the band expects to get additional mileage from a newly inked management deal with Rosa I agarrigue (of Alejandro Sanz fame). The English refrain of the first single, "Everybody," will help its radio opportunities, Crescent Moon Records president Mauricio Abaroa says. "It's an upbeat track that can work everywhere. It will be released to coincide with the World Cup, and that will give us an opportunity for people to iden-

The discovery of rap a few years back, Regueira says, was fundamental in the search for sonic renovation. "Rap opened a Pandora's box for us. It opened millions of new keys for composition. And there were no rules. We didn't respect anything. All kinds of music got together, from [social] criticism to vulgarity, and it was something very fresh." Given their newfound fame, some have accused Los Rabanes of selling out their underground roots. Reg-

Notes.. MILES AWAY:

Trumpet and guitar are

not the most frequently paired of instruments, but then again, Denver is not exactly the locale that most jazz musicians would choose to practice their craft. However, trumpeter Ron Miles thrives among such seeming in-

ueira dismisses the claim. "I think many people say their albums are underground, when in reality, they're poorly recorded," he says, adding that Los Rabanes' early albums were notable for their out -of- control tempos. "And with this album, we found the exact point. You have to find order within the chaos. With gusto, with flavor, you can invent crazy things, but they have to be clean. A concert is played once, and then it's over. But an album is recorded forever." congruities, carving out a niche as a working musician (and an associate professor at Denver's Metropolitan State College) in the Mile High City and releasing Heaven, a duo project with guitarist Bill Frisell, May 7 on the fledgling Sterling Circle label. Miles and Frisell are longtime friends and have discussed the idea of recording a series of duets ever since they collaborated on Frisell's 1996 release Quartet (Nonesuch). Theirs is a pairing that works because of sym-

parallels-as elliptical and mysterious as Frisell's lines and suspended chords can be, Miles is equally straight- to-thepoint, blowing laconic, conversational melodies that float above the guitarist's colorful voicings. "We recorded sitting right next to each other," Miles says, "and I didn't know if Bill was going to play with his trademark loops and distortions. He had everything set up, but in the end he never turned them on." There is, Miles says, a satisfaction in hearing Frisell's unadorned playing. "I enjoyed watching Bill play guitar without the effects, because he is so good with the different textures that his actual playing sometimes gets overlooked." Much of the material on Heaven was composed by Miles specifically for the project, with a few choice covers brought in, such as Jelly Roll Morton's

"King Porter Stomp," Thelonious Monk's infrequently recorded "We See," Hank Williams' "Your Cheatin' Heart," and Bob Dylan's "A Hard Rain's A -Gonna Fall," a song that Frisell introduced to the trumpeter. "I wasn't really familiar with Dylan's

older material, although I have been listening to his recent Time Out of Mind album," Miles says. "After Bill taught me the song and we recorded it, I ran out and bought the album with the original version." Miles says that living in Denver has given him an appreciation for a broad array of musical styles that he might not have acquired elsewhere. "Country and Western music, Latin, jazz, and rock are all popular here, so you find yourself trying out a lot of ideas with other musicians and gaining a healthy respect for the music," he explains. "Many of the local musicians have highly individual sounds or styles, because there are no tightly drawn stylistic lines or camps, since there are not that many musicians to begin with. So musicians tend to be really supportive of each other's ideas and work hard to get them across." According to Miles, a musician living outside of a large musical epicenter can still benefit from the knowledge of artists ;.n the global jazz community. "If there are people you respect, send them a recording," he advises. "Jazz musicians are always interested in hearing what other musicians are doing. Find someone who you think would be interested in your work, contact them, and ask if you can send them a recording. Chances are they will listen and offer feedback. It creates a forum to share ideas. Creating music and sharing it is an important way to contribute to the larger jazz community, no matter where you live." Heaven is the first release from the Boulder, Colo. -based Sterling Circle label (sterlingcircle.com), which anticipates releasing a quartet project from Miles later this year.

Artists performing during the month -long anniversary celebration include Brad Mehldau, Roy Hargrove, Poncho Sanchez, and Dee Dee Bridgewater.

Sonic Circus' Lyons: Pro Audio Gear Moving With Industry BY CHRISTOPHER WALSH

NEW YORK -The ongoing struggle against piracy, the economic uneasi-

ness afflicting the world, and the proliferation of home -based studios have hurt the commercial recording business considerably. While the highest -end studios are somewhat insulated from the malaise, many others struggle to continue. Nonetheless, for every auction or studio liquidation, New York -based engineer Ray Martin says, another facility opens -as engineers and producers with entrepreneurial spirit (and a great deal of courage) take the plunge into ownership-or a top artist builds a private studio. Martin should know: As an informal buyer for Sonic Circus, a Boston -based dealer of high -end audio hardware, he has purchased some $100,000 worth of gear in the last month, by his estimate. "There are more liquidations than you could possibly imagine," Martin says. "It's a sign of the times and the way

soundtrack and Alan Jackson's Drive, Nashville studios may soon enjoy a renaissance. Kautz sees more evidence of a potential boom: "It's been great to branch out into new things, but country is definitely corning back, as far as the recording schedule. About a year ago was the bottom for Nashville recording, but it's very positive these days. The labels have pretty much settled down. Everybody isn't worrying about what label is going to buy what label. Everybody has gotten back to the business of making music. The really interesting thing is the amount of new artists. That's the really good indicator-when labels are spending that kind of money on new artists, recording is healthy again." Since being founded in 1981 by Even Stevens and David Malloy, Emerald -which was purchased by current CEO Dale Moore in 1986 -has grown into a multi room facility housed in several buildings and offering a wide variety of production services. In January 1999, Emerald acquired Masterfonics, a multi -room recording and mastering facility that itself was forced into Chapter 11

After filing Chapter 11 last June during a severe downturn in the local recording industry, Emerald reorganized its debt and cut costs. 15

Seven staff members were dismissed, president /C00 Andrew Kautz says. Since that time, he adds, the industry's prospects have considerably brightened. "I'm extremely excited to be on the back end of this thing," Kautz says. "It's amazing how it all worked out. We couldn't have asked for better cooperation from everybody involved." In addition to the freedom to renegotiate with creditors enabled by the filing, Kautz explains that a thorough examination of the corn pany's internal structure led to reorganization within. "It allowed us to find out things that worked and

things that didn't. We definitely reorganized the staff. It wasn't a huge cut, but everybody wears more hats these days, and job descriptions got a little broader. It allowed us to target a lot better." One fortunate by- product of country music's downturn was the abundance of artists from other genres who helped to fill the void. Kautz cites Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow, Mark Knopfler, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, all of whom recently worked at Emerald, along with more likely artists Dixie Chicks and Alison Krauss. Moreover, given the success of the 0 Brother, Where Art Thou?

reorganization months earlier, a result of expansion followed by inconsistent bookings. The severe decrease in business, combined with a "rate war" among local studios, left Emerald in a similar quandary two years later. Last summer, Moore told Studio Monitor that "there are a few people-the few that are left-that continue to cut rates horribly. Our rates have not gone up since 1985, which is unthinkable." (Studio Monitor, Billboard, Aug. 11, 2001) On the bright side, Emerald's multiple divisions -Digital Audio Post, an audio suite for production and post -production of film, TV, and music; the Broadcast Division; and a booking agency-generate a synergy that benefits the organization. Emerald's newest division, the Sessions Agency, is a joint venture between Emerald, Nicole Cochran of Nic of Time Communications, and production coordinator Mike Griffith. The agency provides session coordination for producers including Dann Huff and Mark Bright. (Though affiliated with Emerald, clients are not obligated to work there.) "There's not a lot of companies that go into Chapter 11 that come back out the other side," Kautz observes. "We're excited, but I'm more excited about the short time frame in which we were able to do it." 37

I went to a Brian Wilson concert a year or so ago, and a friend of mine was in the band and introduced us. My wife kept telling me to tell him I was Homer, but I didn't, so she leaned over and told him, and his face went from a

is

such a cliché to announce that an event will be

"bigger and better" than ever before. But the cliché is inescapable when referring to the annual Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards show, which this year gets an unprecedented boost with the media sponsorship of Hispanic Broadcasting Corporatic n (HBC), the inclusion of BMI's 9th annual Latin Music Awards as part of the conference, an exclusiv, one -on -one interview with superstar Ricky Martin ind a stellar roster of performers for the Billboard '.atin Music Awards, including Celine Dion, Juan Gabriel, Marc Anthony and Thalia, who will premiere material from her new album. This is in addit;on to the extensive support from all echelons of the Latin music industry-from labels to media outlets to performing-rights organizations. As the conference and awards show enter their 13th year, their continued success is testament to the stability of the Latin genre in the U.S. and to Billboard's commitment to its coverage and development. In turn, the wide interest and recognition enjoyed by the show itself underscore the strength of the Billboard name and the credibility of the awards, which will take place May 9 at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach and air May 12 on Telemundo. The show has become the highest -rated special for the network, which has entered into an agreement to produce it until 2004.

"The Billboard show, because of its integrity, has special meaning for the industry, and that's part of the reason it appeals to its audience and to this level of talent." In addition, the show will air simultaneously on HBC, the largest Spanish -language radio network in the U.S., with more than 50 stations in 14 markets. HBO Latino, a new Spanish language digital service, has once is

WHAT TO EXPECT Following a humble launch that attracted, at most, 100 attendees, the Billboard Latin Music Conference has grown to become not

only the longest- running Latin music conference in the nation, but certainly the most respected and well attended.

Aside from broadcasting the awards show in accordance with Telemundo's programming, HBC will do a series of programs leading up to the event, all of which will be formatically correct for NBC's 52 stations. "The sound will fit the format of the station," says Hobbs. "Obviously, we want to pique the attention of Hispanic listeners and not have them hit that button and change the station." There are plans to do teasers, as well as interviews with nominees and featured acts, for four weeks prior to the show. The Sunday before the event, HBC will go live with a special featuring those stars who are in town for the show. In addition, HBC will broadcast live from the Billboard Latin Music Conference. As a new media partner, HBC will co -host the "HBC Radio Day" May 7 at the Billboard Latin Music Conference. The Radio Day includes two panels-"Programming for the 12 to 24 Set" and "Trends in Regional Mexican Programming " -organized in conjunction with Billboard magazine and featuring radio experts from around the nation.

anthem that went

around the globe in several languages. `Ihat performance, and Martin's subsequent eponymously titled English-language release, put him in an entirely different league. No longer just a Latin phenomenon, it's no exaggeration to say

that Martin became the single best-known star of that year, with his song "Livin' la Vida I.oca" spending 14 weeks in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. The album Ricky Martin spent a total of 67 weeks on the Billboard 200, 18 of those were spent in the top 10. Martin would follow up that success with Sound Loaded in 2000.

Since then, he's taken a break from the recording studio (although he released a Spanish language greatest -hits album in 2001 that included remakes of two tracks). His time off is set to be broken later this year, when he interview. Last year featured Marc Anthony, and this year's edition will feature Ricky Martin.

panels highlighting the most important trends in Latin music today. In addition to the two radio panels that will take place May 7,

Lupillo Rivera Proving That Everything Old Is New Alain BY LEILA COBO

n the beginning, some saw Lupillo Rivera as a passing fad. There

he was, his head shaved to a sheen, waving an expensive cigar, driving a Bentley and wearing tailor -made suits. But just what was he singing on his major -label debut? Old- fashioned Mexican songs -some new, some standards -with your basic banda sinaloense accompaniment. Some speculated his success had to do with his background and track record. He'd released a string of corrido albums -far racier stuff-on his dad's Cintas Acuario label, and the discs had been extremely successful in California. Others said it was the strength of his new label, Sony Discos, and the push it was giving him. But after Despreciado, released what can I do? It's something that in early 2001, topped the 1 mil- happened real fast and real lion mark, it was clear this Rivera strong. It caught me off guard, the company off guard and my guy was onto something. Less than a year later, he manager off guard." No longer off guard, though released his follow -up, Sufriendo

Appealing to audiences both young and old, this new breed of regional Mexican singers wears its traditions proudly. But, having been raised in the U.S., they can connect with audiences who are like them: bilingual, bicultural and anxious to see their traditions corning out through someone who looks and sounds like them.

"He's very charismatic and street -smart," says Sony Discos chairman Oscar Llord. "He put that in the mix and turned out to be the newest regional Mexican star. He could be an urban music star, but he's doing folkloric music, which is a unique twist."

Barely 16 months after his major -label debut, Rivera has four albums simultaneously in the top 50 of the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart, a remarkable feat.

"Has it taken me by surprise? Very much," says Rivera. "But

As if that weren't enough, Juan Gabriel was the object of aduladon from a string of newer artists, with Nydia Rojas and Los Tri -O recording tribute albums featuring his songs.

Juan Gabriel ended the year with Por los Siglos, an album of new versions of his own material, from which "Inocente Pobre Amigo" made the charts.

Rick MartinKids Ricky

Helping U rivileged And Families Is Just One Of Many Of The Singer's Caring Ways Martin was in Menudo, when he was only 12 years old, the group's members were named Unicef ambassadors. As such, Martin and his Menudo cohorts-often driven by his own mother in the family car-went to innumerable hospitals, schools and childcare centers for underprivileged children, where they would sign autographs, pose for pictures and maybe sing a song or two. They say old habits die hard. And today, nearly 20 years later, Martin is still doing very much the same thing he did then, only now he does it on his own, through the Ricky Martin When Ricky

Foundation, created two years ago to channel assistance to a wide variety of causes. This impetus to

help, coupled with

a

highly

involved and personal approach to doing so that dates back to his teens, motivated Billboard to name Martin the recipient of this year's Spirit of Hope Award. "I remember once, before he launched his solo career, he came to the institution to see the kids," recalls Nilda Morales, executive director of SER Puerto Rico (the Puerto Rican Easter Seals), which operates different centers for disadvantaged and disabled children and their families. "And there was one child who didn't know him. And Ricky said, 'If I ever become famous, I won't forget you.' And that's the way it's been."

Through the years, Martin would collaborate with SER in

myriad ways. Most notably, he paid in full for the construction of SER's center in the community of Aibonito, which serves 150 children with developmental deficiencies. The center is now known as El Centro Ricky Martin de SER de Puerto Rico and Martin continues to assist

on a permanent basis. For Morales, however, Martin's real value lies not as much in the money he gives but in the interest he places in the center's activities. "He would come here, and he would never allow us to bring press, because he wanted to spend time with the kids," she says. "So, even though he's a star that's high in the firmament, he has the warmth to allow his light to touch others." Martin has long been known to assist in many causes, including the

Rainforest Foundation and

Pavarotti & Friends. He continues to do so independently, with the work done by the Ricky Martin Foundation, which services mostly projects in Puerto Rico and was created to streamline and better channel efforts.

Headed by his brother Fernando Fernández, the fully staffed, Puerto Ricobased foundation processes innumerable requests before presenting the most viable projects to Martin himself,

who makes the final choices. Aside from SER, long-

standing pet projects include the Fundación Soli Solina Ferré, a center for single mothers and pregnant teens that includes an elementary school for low income children. There's also the Ricky Martin Scholarship, awarded to a student or students enrolled in the University of Puerto Rico's School of Medicine. Martin, who at one point wanted to study medicine, created the scholarship with $100,000 of seed money and has pledged an additional $20,000 per year to be given to students in need of financial aid. As of September, a new scholarship will also be created for needy students who enroll in Puerto Rico's Escuela Nacional Música. Martin is also in conversations with Nacho Cano to assist in the Spanish singer's school of music for girls in Calcutta, an endeavor that already has the support of Alejandro Sanz. The project is part of Martin's plan to expand the scope of his foundation, and, with it, to collaborate with other artists who have similar organizations.

In the meantime, however. those who benefit most often remember the little things. Take the San Jorge Children's Hospital, to which Martin last year

donated $50,000 for the institution's cancer wing. "He wanted to come himself and see the hospital," says San Jorge director Domingo Cruz. "And, because he was so famous, I imagined he would be rather cold. In fact, three hours before he cane, there was all kinds of security. But when he arrived, he ignored the security completely and was giving out hugs and kisses to the kids. If one kid wanted him to read a hook, he read it. If another wanted him to get down on the floor and play, he did it. It was very exciting, really. He spent time with each child." -L.C. BILLS OARD

Rap On The Rise In Puerto Rico Although Generating The Island's Biggest Sales, The Genre Struggles To Get The Attention It Deserves BY RANDY LUNA

«

f I am a rapper, they reject

me, they discriminate against me /but, in album sales, we put the discipline," states rapper Tempo on "Amen," the first single off his third album, Exitos, released by Buddha's Production. Tempo's song clearly explains

the scenario of the recording industry in Puerto Rico, where rap music is the genre responsible for maintaining a healthy level of sales, yet it's barely noticed by a majority of the media. "It used to be a trend, but now it has established itself as a genre.

It is the strongest source of

income in the industry, above pop or tropical [music]," says Rafael Pina, president/owner of the independent record label and distribution company, Pina

associated with the music and its highly

Music, which releases an average of six albums per year. "We sell at

events as well. All this, coupled with leeriness about dealing with the crowds associated with the music, prevents the

least 50,000 copies [of each release] between the U.S. and Puerto Rico." Sales like this are providing retailers with such a steady traffic of customers that, for a single market like Puerto Rico, the trend would normally generate massive media coverage. But rap is still overlooked by many media outlets, especially TV and radio, due to the negative perception

REFLECTING LIFE "There is a preconception that rap music has to deal with gunshots and that kind of stuff. But [the industry] has to start seeing rappers as artists, too," says pro-

inmous musI( PUBUUIDG and

ducer Frank Castillo, owner of Buddha's Production. In fact, Tempo's Exitos is the first release via Buddha's new distribution deal with Sony Discos. It entered

decided to record old songs. My [young] fans think they're new, and the dads who wouldn't let them buy the CD before are now listening to it themselves." Rivera made his Sony debut with Despreciado, which included the track of the same name, originally popularized by Javier Solis. Rivera recorded the entire disc in banda format, instead of his previous norteño style. The strategy worked, and "Des -

preciado" hit Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks chart, while Despreciado, the album, has remained on the Billboard Latin Albums chart since its release, even though Rivera has released three other albums. FOR VARIETY'S SAKE "In l.upillo , case, I think people will be bothered if we don't come out with a new album," says Llord. "I think he has such a loyal fan base, people are looking for a new studio album every couple of months. I know this goes against all the philosophies of the record business, but there's no reason why Lupillo can't be an exception. And, so far, he's been the exception." So much so that, at the end of

April, Rivera is slated to release a corrido album with his brother

Juan, Los Heintanos Mas Buscados.

In October, he's slated to record

tet another disc, this time accompanied by mariachi. "I'm doing it for variety's sake. and to prove to those who criticize me that I can record with mariachi," says Rivera, talking on the phone in between gigs (he

weekend). "It's different; it's a little more difficult. It's more traditional. You have to be more careful with it." Llord says Sony is exploring the possibility of a special project with the songs of Javier Solisone of Rivera's idols -in which Rivera records duets with Solis using Solis' old recordings. As for Rivera, he's looking way ahead. Beginning in August, his shows will feature a banda sinaloense, his norteño band and a mariachi, and, beyond that, he's even planning a family concert with his siblings in 2003. "What I want is to really win over all the small towns and then have a family tour in all the big places," he says. "But that won't be until 2003 because I want to set my name straight, so it'll be a success. I want to go to Miami, for example, and pack the hell out of it. There are cities I pack, like Los Angeles. But I still have New York and Atlanta to go. "I am trying to conquer the whole Latin world," he says. "That's what I want, to have all the Latins listen to what I do." BILLBOARD

And, while fathers where prohibiting kids from buying [rap] albums, [the kids] were obtaining illegal copies at school." After releasing four albums with RMM, the duo was featured rapping on salsa legend Celia Cruz's latest hit, "La Negra Tiene Tumbao," which resulted in a record deal with EMI Latin. The success of Puerto Rican rap, or reggaeton as it is known among its consumers, can be attributed to a mix of socially conscious lyrics that reflect the low-class lifestyle and a modern version of the con-

tagious Jamaican- rhythm called reggae dancehall. "Many [lyrics] are considered violent, but they reflect life as at is. [Musically], it is happy, you can dance to it, that's why it is supported by our youth," explains producer/writer /singer Master Joe, who, forming a double act with O.G. Black, has released successful albums Fran cotiradores 1 & 2 on Pina Music. "Our lyrics reflect reality. People identify with us because we come from the same place they come from. We show what's really going on in society, in the 'hood," says Lito, of the rap duo Lito 8c Polaco. The duo are finalists for Billboard's Latin Rap Album of the Year, after, reportedly, selling more than 100,000 copies of their second album, Mundo Frío (Pina Music). The marketing approach used with this music is very simple: Labels pay for airtime. Rap radio station Mix 107.7, which started at the end of 2000, along with video channels Tele San Juan and Tele Net, charge a monthly fee to play a song /video. But, while these outlets function as the primary propellers for rap sales, other non -traditional outlets for the genre are starting to believe BILLBOARD

consumers. Top -rated morning radio show "El Bayú," on tropical station Salsoul 98, and Monday night prime -time TV show No Te Duermas, both hosted by Antonio "El Gangster" Sanchez, now include rap guests sporadically. In addition, newspapers and TV shows are starting to react positively to the movement.

[Rap] doesn't need that much promotion in order to be accepted by the public." Aside from Sony Discos and EMI Latin, other major labels investing in the genre now include Universal Latino, which just launched Night Man Records, a joint venture with Jose Luis Alvarez, a veteran club owner. Its first release is Underground Psycho by rap artist D -One, and the label is emphasizing the possibility of putting out "clean" rap.

GRUPOMANIA HITS: Puerto Rico's leading merengue boy band, Grupomanía, recently returned from Santo Domingo, where it teamed up with Los Toros Band vocalist Héctor Acosta to record a bachata track for its upcoming Universal Music Latino release. Label executive Eddie Fernández, VP of A &R, says Acosta, better known as "El Torito," and Grupomanía front man Héctor "Banchy" Serrano sang a bachata cover of "Uno Dos Tres," a hit by Mexican pop act Grupo Iman.

Latin markets. That task won't be easy, as Rosario is the youngest daughter of the late legendary flamenco star Lola Flores. Her last rock- flavored Sony -only album in 1999 flopped, as the public and critics turned their back on the record. The Sony -BMG joint venture is seen both as "the return of Rosario," as well as her moment to break into the Latino market. It is much aided by her role as a bullfighter in Talk to Her, the latest movie by Oscar winning director Pedro Almodóvar. The film is a hit throughout Europe and is awaiting a U.S. release date. "Her current radio hit, `Como Quieres Que Te Quiera,' is perfectly compatible with Latino pop radio in the U.S.," says Armendariz. "BMG signed the joint venture with Sony because we believe in her immense talent. Few artists move on stage like Rosario. She's a performer who has to be seen live." The Miami promo visit follows a late -April trek to Mexico and planned visits to Argentina and Chile.

Lin SAN JUAN'S NIGHT MAN: Universal Music Latino has signed a joint venture with Night Man Records, a new music label based in San Juan, Puerto Rico, that specializes in rap, reggae, house and hip-hop. The first release, Underground Psycho, by new act D -One, went to stores April 15, followed by a compilation titled Más Allá del Perreo, a reggaeton album that capitalizes on the "perreo," a current dance fad in Puerto Rico. Night Man is the brainchild of José Luis Alvarez, a nightclub owner and promoter who saw in his club a breeding and testing ground for new music. "Indie labels send me their productions before they press them and I try them out on my dance floor," says Alvarez. "The idea behind the label was to find a place for a ton of talent; here in Puerto Rico, you stomp the ground and an artist comes out. But the biggest trends I see are rap and reggae." Although Universal is expecting a minimum of four releases per year from Night Man, Alvarez anticipates putting out at least 10 to 12.

ing entertainment venue that is set to hit at least 12 Hispanic markets in the U.S. in the space of seven months. La Máquina kicked off its schedule of events in March in Miami and will conclude in Houston Sept. 22 with different sets of artists scheduled to perform in different stops. "The main objective was to have a mechanism that allows you to go to any part of the country, any town, and set up a full festival in four to six hours," says CFA president Henry Cárdenas. La Máquina consists of four

semi -trailer trucks that unfold into a fully equipped music venue, complete with concert stage, video screen, laser show and VIP unit. Miller Brewing Co. is funding La Máquina with CFA producing all performances. BUNBURY'S FLAMINGOS A HIT: The songs of Enrique Bunbury, former singer of the now defunct Spanish rock band Heroes de Silencio, cannot simply be described as Latino, such is the broad range of his influences and

delivery. But Bunbury's recently released EMI Hispavox album,

of Spain's leading retailers, treated the arrival of Flamingos as an event, setting up life -sized photos of the singer as part of its in -store promotion. "Flamingos sold 300 copies on the first day -800 in the first week -when [in our store] an average new release that goes to No. 1 sells 300 in the first week," says FNAC national music manager Silvia Guerrero.

The sale of pirated music in Spain, largely through illegally copied CDs on the street, accounts for 30% of all CDs sold in Spain, according to AFYVE director Carlos Grande. "We are utterly fed up with piracy and decided on this method to really bring the public's attention to the harm it is doing to the music industry," says Grande. "Interest is great abroad about the move, and we have had calls from Colombia and Mexico, where some industry bodies are considering similar moves."

Conference Gives Delegates Hands -On Experience Of Gang-Driven Crime BY HOWELL LLEWELLYN

MADRID -Top executives of the International Federa-

They include increasing police powers to seize and destroy pirated CDs on -site without prior court intervention and to initiate proceedings without a record label complaint (as required at present), plus an increase in penalties and the speeding up of judicial proceedings.

Grant says he was able to buy several illegal CDs from street vendors within walking distance of the central Madrid hotel where the committee was staying. He picked up pirated CDs by four Spanish artists who attended an anti -piracy press briefing at the end of the IFPI visit -David Civera, Pastora Soler, Hevia, and Carlos Jean -and "they cost me 3 euros [$2.70-one fifth of the normal retail price]." Berman tells Billboard, "The fact that the executive committee came to Madrid is a sign of the magnitude of the problem in Spain. It is a European problem, but we want to address it first in Spain-where, for example, [the problem] is very different to Germany. Here, it is CD -R piracy sold by street vendors. It is not industrial piracy but criminal gangs. If it is not stopped here, it will spread have seen that already in Italy and Greece."

After posting an increase of almost 11% in the value of shipments in 2001, labels body SNEP reports continued growth during first -quarter 2002.

Accompanied by Rony and other members of the board, Bressand met in recent weeks with all of the French presidential candidates or their advisers, with the exception of extreme right wing National Front leader Jean-Marie Le Pen. Rony claims that "music is poorly recognized by the cultural industry," noting that although it is ahead of cinema in France, it does not receive the same benefits. All of the candidates

at the forefront of business in Brussels. Describing the fight against piracy as a "war on this cancerous criminal disease," Burger says "there is clearly an absolute explosion of piracy in Spain. In the [past] 18 months ... piracy in Spain has doubled from 15% to 30 %, reaching 50% in the

case of new or hit records." As recently as 1998, piracy levels in Spain were 5 %. According to Grant, Spanish police and customs officers seized 360,000 pirated CDs in 2000, 740,000 last year, and more than 200,000 between January and March this year. Spain's justice ministry is organizing a two -day seminar on intellectual property May 23 -24 in Madrid and is inviting world and European presidents of record labels to attend and discuss music

piracy. IFPI European regional director Frances Moore says that the IFPI intends to make piracy a "very political issue."

immune to the strong worldwide decline in singles seen in 2001," SNEP director general Hervé Rony says. "For the past five years, the singles

market [around the world] has been fragile, due in large part to music downloading." But local repertoire remained strong: The five top- shipping singles and albums in the first three months of 2002 were of French origin. Labels are also casting their gaze further afield, according to SNEP president Gilles Bressand: "The industry is now] concentrating more on export. It is a political and economic priority for major and independent companies. Even the smallest producers tend to conquer other markets when [the home] one is not enough." Rony also reports that SNEP has made some progress with several of the initiatives outlined in its recently [

lower sales tax rate of 5.5 %, instead of the 19.6% currently applied in France. SNEP also notes that other issues, such as ensuring musical diversity in the media and the need for a subscription -free, terrestrial digital music TV channel, were "met with interest" by the candidates. Rony emphasizes the importance of a TV channel because of the possibility of combining all musical formats. "TV is able to do what radio can't. We can have rap and French chanson on the same station. With radio, that isn't possible." According to Rony, the decreasing number of tracks on playlists is becoming a problem, as radio tries to deal with decreasing average audience -listening time. Bressand says the existing statutory French music quotas "must be respected. There is no doubt as to their efficiency; the results are obvious in the sales of French music."

Kodo Crosses Frontiers With Hart Japanese Drumming Group Employs Former Grateful Dead Member On Red Ink Disc communication was not done verbally. When Mickey wanted something done in a certain way, he'd

BY STEVE McCLURE

TOKYO-Mickey Hart can't keep his fingers still, tapping out a rhythm on the table as he describes working with Japanese drumming group Kodo on its latest album, Mondo Head.

Hart uses the term "ringleader" to describe his role in the creation of Mondo Head, released in the U.S. April 23 on Sony Music label Red Ink, ahead of a U.S. tour in July and August. "Or more like a traffic cop," the former Grateful Dead drummer adds quickly. Mondo Head is probably the most accessible Kodo album to date, melding the percussion troupe's most powerful taiko beats with musical traditions from all over the planet. Guest musicians include Brazilian percussionist Airto Moreira, Indian tabla drummer Zakir Hussian, Tibet's Gyuto Tantric Choir, Cuban vocalist/percussionist Nengue Hernandez, and blues harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite, a neighbor of Hart's who happened to drop by one day during a session. Kodo has been one of Japan's best-

known musical exports since the ensemble formed on the remote island of Sado in the 1970s. Hart first became aware of the Japanese tradition of taiko drumming when he attended a performance by an earlier drumming troupe featuring future Kodo members, Ondeko Za, in San Francisco in 1975. In 1989, Kodo member Yoshikazu Fujimoto made a special guest appearance at a Grateful Dead concert. Hart, who in 1991 won a Grammy Award for his album Planet Drum, continued his association with Kodo by narrating the U.S. version of Kodo's Live at Acropolis video. Hart says he'd thought about working with Kodo for some time, but he didn't have a clear idea of what kind of project he wanted to do with the group until a couple of years ago. "The idea of doing a project with Kodo came simultaneously with the development of surround sound," he says. Sony-with which Kodo has a record deal a key proponent of the surround-sound idea, specifically through its Super Audio CD (SACD) format.

despite the braying, someone would start tapping out a beat. If Hart liked the rhythm, he would encourage the other players to join and try to guide the essentially spontaneous process. "They brought the essence of Kodo, and I had a lot of other percussion around," Hart explains. "I wanted to take them off the taiko drum part of the time and put them on other percussion instruments to spur their creativity, to take it further-because they didn't need me to make a taiko record; they could have done that on their own." Sony Music Japan GM of interna-

there were llamas and donkeys, which Mickey keeps. And sometimes during the recordings, there would be this terrific braying." The sessions got started when,

simply do it by sound. And he'd make noises with his mouth. That was all we needed to understand." Naito gives full marks to Hart as a producer and sonic visionary. "Mickey just brings it all together to create something like the title," he says. "Of course Japanese music, Indian music, Brazilian music-they've all been brought up in completely different environments, and they're totally different, but it was also interesting for us to take a bolder, bigger world view and try to bring them all together." Hart says, "I wanted to create a mix of some of the more powerful music cultures of the world that I thought would blend with taiko. This is sort of like a Planet Drum with Kodo." Hart did two mixes of the album: one in stereo and one in surround sound. "Stereo is dead," Hart says, only half-joking. 'There are some people out there who still listen to this archaic form. Surround is exciting, because it's three times the geography of stereo."

Organized by labels body the Record Industry Assn. of New Zealand (RIANZ), the awards will include two new categories this year, for hip- hop/R &B and electronica acts. Judging is traditionally carried out by a 30-strong panel of experts drawn from the radio, press, and TV industries. This year will also see the public voting online for local act of the year, from a short-list of seven. State broadcaster Television New Zealand's TV2 channel will carry delayed coverage of the event the same night. The awards are traditionally held in March, but RIANZ opted for May to tie in with NZ Music Month (NZMM), a joint industry initiative between RIANZ, the Australasian Performers Rights Assn. (APRA), JOHN FERGUSON and New Zealand government agencies. Sony Music New Zealand artist Che Fu, who

Europe are hoping their new joint venture Latin music label, Sunny luna Records, will catalyze the increasingly global success of Spanish -language repertoire. The Madrid -based label -first mooted 10 months ago at a New York signing ceremony (Billboard, June 30, 2001)

-is 60% financed by GVM, with

Estefan's Crescent Moon label and Sony Music Intemational sharing the remaining 40 %. Initial

target markets are Spain, the U.S., and Latin America, but Sony Music Europe president

Paul Burger tells Billboard: "Sony's ambisun I1yLUNA tion is to work with Sunnyluna artists and sell them worldwide." Burger adds, "Sunnyluna is a very important cadre of committed artistic talent." He says Sony does not have a special strategy for Latin artists in Europe and admits that there is no magic formula. "Each artist is different, but singing in English makes a difference -as you can see with our No. 1 European airplay and RECORDS

Grupo Prisa. Estefan says, "We want to be a bridge linking Latin music in [the U.S. and Latin] America and in Spain, launching records here by artists from there and vice versa. Spain is a launching pad for Latin artists who want to triumph in Europe, such as Shakira and Ricky Martin. The music industry sales artist Shakira." Sunnyluna has already signed four artists: Puerto Rican pop singer Shalim, whose eponymous debut was released in February; Peruvian singer /songwriter Gian Marco; female trio MSM, the latest incarnation of the Miami Sound Machine; and Texas rock band Vallejo. All except Vallejo were in Madrid April 17 to perform at a late -night showcase celebrating the Sunnyluna launch. BEING THE BRIDGE

The Sunnyluna label manager is Domingo García, and the label will be run by representatives of the three owner companies. GVM CEO Luis Merino explains that the committee will consist of "three of the

has seen many important alliances in recent times, and as this is a historic moment for Latin music, the [Sunnyluna] alliance is very important." He adds, "[Singing in] English is a trampoline, but it is important that the artists do not forget their roots and continue to sing in Spanish, too. More Spanish language records are sold in the U.S. than in any other country, including Spain and Mexico, and Spanish sales are still growing there. Spain has a very credible market and is the key to Sunny luna's success." Merino notes that "Spain has a special strategic singularity, and it is very hard for Latin artists to break into Europe without first being successful in Spain."

Legal Download Service bunched In India Soundbuzz, Indiatimes.com Claim The First Legitimate Music Facility BY NYAY BHUSHAN

NEW DELHI, India- Singaporebased digital -music service provider Soundbuzz and leading Indian portal Indiatimes.com have launched what they claim is India's first legitimate music download service. The service, available April 15, is part of the overall Indiatimes online

shopping service and is at sound -

buzz.com /partners /indiatimes/ musicdownload.asp. The main Indiatimes Web site (indiatimes.com) attracts more than 550 million page views per month. The service initially features some 10,000 songs by domestic and international artists. Labels making their material available through the site include BMG- Crescendo, Tips Industries, Times Music, Lahari Music, Enrico Hindustan, Archies Music; and EMI's local affiliate, Virgin Records India. Neither Sony nor Universal Music is taking part in the Indiatimes /Soundbuzz service. Individual songs will be priced at between 10 rupees ($0.20) and 24 ru-

pees ($0.50), and payment may be made by credit card only. "This initiative is an extension of what Soundbuzz has been doing in the region, where we pact with leading portals to offer legitimate downloads," Soundbuzz CEO Sudhansu Sarronwala says. "I see this as a good way to introduce the concept of selling singles -some-

thing that doesn't happen at the retail level [in India]."

Vineet Jain, managing director of indiatimes.com parent media group the Times of India, says, "It has been our constant endeavor to upgrade our services and add more features to Indiatimes to make it an entertainment -rich portal. Digital

music [downloading] is another step in that direction."

Sony Music India managing director Shridhar Subramanium comments: "I think the India times /Soundbuzz service will probably make more sense for overseas Indians, for whom the prices could be attractive."

Kumar Taurani, managing

director of Warner Music licensee Tips Industries, notes: "We in India have the advantage of learning from what happened in the U.S. with Napster and the overall Net piracy debate. At least with [the Soundbuzz deal], we have introduced Indian consumers to the idea of legitimately buying online music before online piracy gets out of control." www.billboard.com

Sonic In Sound Health Amid Others' Woes, Company Celebrates Best Year Yet BY LARRY LeBLANC

TORONTO -The past five years have seen a string of high -profile casualties

on the battleground that is independent distribution in Canada. Yet Hamilton, Ontario-based Sonic Distribution has not only avoided joining the casualty list during that period, it has celebrated its best year's trading to date. Since 1997, the indie arena has seen the bankruptcies of such major distribution players as Cargo Imports and Distribution in Montreal and Toronto -based Saturn Distributing and Song Entertainment Distribution, plus the closure of Denon Canada's distribution arm. With that background, it's not surprising that Sonic Distribution co -owner Tim Potocic says, "We have most of our retailers on a tight leash of 45 and 60 days' billing. Most of our indie accounts are on C.O.D. I have a gut feeling some of our big customers may go down." Potocic and fellow co-owner Mark Milne, both in their early 30s, oversee a productive

music, and they don't sell to the right independent stores." In nine years, the group's Sonic Unyon Records has grown into one of

Canada's leading indie labels. Its domestic roster includes the co-

conglomerate in Hamilton. With only 10 full -

founders' own band, Tristan Psionic, as well as SIANspheric, the Dirtmitts, Chore, Dinner Is Ruined, and Sector seven. The label has also issued recordings by Frank Black & the Catholics, Jesus Lizard, and Zeke. Sonic Unyon is distributed in the U.S. by the Northwest Alliance of Indie Labels in Portland, Ore., and in the U.K. and Europe by Oxford, England based Plastic Head Distribution. Sonic Unyon (pronounced "onion") releases what its staff and affiliated bands collectively discover. "We are usually the first to hear about good new acts," Potocic boasts. "Our bands play with other bands, and they tell us what to check out." While still in university; Tristan Psionic guitarists Milne and Sandy McIntosh -who left the label in January formed Sonic Unyon in 1993 to release their

time employees, it

mer Potocic joined the band and company six months later.

Records label, and retail outlet Sonic Unyon Record Store.

Sonic Distribution sells to 300 indie accounts nationwide, plus all of Canada's major retail chains. It exclusively represents 300 U.S. -based independent labels in Canada, including Fat Wreck Chords, Psychopathic, and Revelation, and it distributes Epitaph in Canada on a nonexclusive basis. In addition, Sonic handles 50 Canadian independent labels, including Alien 8, Noise Factory, Constellation, BattleAxe, and Meter. "The music business might be hurting, but we're doing well," Potocic says. "Last year was our best year in business. All the labels we distribute are doing well."

"These aren't penny -ante guys anymore," says Tim Baker, buyer for

Sunrise Records, which has 32 stores in Ontario. "They are doing some pretty good business. They have product we can sell." John -Paul Bruno, indie buyer at Pindoff Record Sales-which operates the 102 -store Music World chain nationally-agrees. "They are doing great work. Most of the business we do with them is with the Epitaph and Fat Wreck Chord labels." Potocic says that multinationals based in Canada are now aggressively vying for distribution of smaller,

non -Canadian indie labels. "The majors are trying to get anything they can," he says. "However, they don't have the staff that knows the

-

From the outset, Sonic Unyon distributed its records nation-

ally and released recordings by bands the co- founders liked, including Treble Charger, Smoother, Shallow, and Tricky Woo. In 1995, the

label's distribution arm became Sonic Distribution and received a major profile boost by handling Toronto singer /songwriter Hayden's

Everything I Long For album (Hardwood Records). "We're now gold [50,000 units in Canada] with it," Potocic says. With the market breakthroughs of Hayden, Treble Charger, and Smoother, operations moved from the basement of Milne's parents' home in 1995. "Eighteen-wheelers were pulling up to their house and blocking the courtyard," Potocic recalls. "Neighbors couldn't get to work, so we rented offices. Two years later, we bought a building." As a result of U.S. retail and distribution discord last year, American-based labels are now taking a hard -nosed stance with their billings, Potocic says. "We're on 60 days' payment with 99% of the American labels," he says. "We keep inventory levels as low as possible." Potocic agrees that poor handling of inventory hurts distributors more than other factors. "We expect to truck along with a consistent- selling catalog," he says. "We're not a believer in overshipping."

monies. Ten Speed Racer previously secured a U.S. release (but not a U.K. one) for its debut album, Eskimo Beach Boy (Reverb Records), but lead singer Dermot Barrett explains that since the group got away from city life, things have shifted up a gear: "What made this record so good was that we moved out of Dublin, and it's a whole different ball game." Ten Speed Racer, which played an impressive gig April 23 at London's Studio Club, betrays few native musical roots. "It's grand to be Irish, but to be stickered with it is such a pain," Barrett says. "We don't sound a sniff Irish, which is great." PAUL SEXTON

Italy. But that hasn't deterred EMI Music from investing in singer/ pianist Sergio Cammariere. Originally from Crotone, Italy, Cam mariere has been part of the Rome music scene for several years, backing the likes of Alex Britti -who returns the favor by playing guitar on several tracks on Cammariere's debut album, Dalla Pace del Mare Lontano (From the Peace of the Far Sea). EMI senior director of new local artists and new talents Fabrizio Giannini says, "This is a project that we'll be working throughout the year. We hope to build a following slowly but surely. We're concentrating our efforts on press and word -ofmouth." A showcase at a Milan nightspot recently attracted a sizable press contingent and a highly favorMARK WORDEN able reaction.

Platinum-selling Finnish group Ultra Bra disbanded at the height of its career last autumn after four albums that made the group the country's most popular rock band. After calling it quits, members of the 13 -piece outfit are quickly starting new projects, and they are already entering the charts. Scandinavian Music Group -which consists of four Ultra Bra members -was the first out with a single, while Ultra Bra cornposer Kerkko Koskinen was the first to release an album. His solo debut, Rakkaus Viltää (Love Wounds), was released by Megamania in April and peaked at No. 5. Album track "Mayday" became a crossover radio hit. Public top 40 station Radiomafia's head of music Ville Vilén says, "Koskinen's music is interesting. His songs resemble pop hits from the '60s and '70s. I wouldn't compare it to Ultra Bra."

ArtistDirect Has A Sampler Music Lovers `Gotta' Hear BY SHARON LEVINE

NEW YORK -The ArtistDirect Network has unveiled a new promotional music-compilation sampler: You Gotta Hear This, the first in a series of six week marketing campaigns that combine online and offline distribution of the CD. As part of the initiative, ArtistDirect will take advantage of the music community's database of more than 6

million users by distributing music, videos, and online playback software to its e-mail database, since 2 million of its listees have consented to receiving promotional opportunities. The You Gotta Hear This online player-which includes full streams of the sampler's songs and videos, as well as retail and official artists' sites

tion, and exclusive music and merchandise directly from artists, Hewson sought to create a cyclical purchasing and hype- building format "doing something that brings someone offline to get them back online" repeatedly. Tracks like Garbage's "Cherry Lips" from beautifulgarbage on Interscope and Flaw's "Whole" from Through the Eyes on Republic/Universal exemplify the disc's non -genre- specific tone, gearing it to the various tastes of the site's listeners. ArtistDirect president/CEO Keith Yokomoto jumped on the idea, realizing that the company already had thousands of pieces going out to people and

estimates that the compilations cost the company between 70 cents and $1.10 to manufacture with artwork. Labels pay upward of $2,500 per track to be included on the sampler. You Gotta Hear This is what Hew son calls "a tastemaker tool before

Palm head of digital marketing services Ed Rivadavia, whose track "Half- life" from Local H and video "Braided Hair" from 1 Giant Leap are on the compilation, admits, 'We knew we were going to have to start spending money, that the Internet isn't

going to be free anymore." While the compilation's direct effects will not be

known until it runs its course through the follow -up (due May 13), Rivadavia acknowledges that the potential purchasing power of Artist Direct's enormous fan base is invaluable to Palm: `We new -media people are secretly cheering for these sites that have been doing well." Yokomoto hopes to expand the compilation's distribution into non- traditional retail outlets, such as Saks, and at live events sponsored by ArtistDirect's touring division. He is also developing plans for a Latin compilation titled Revolution, as well as a concert tour and site of the same name.

links currently being sent with ArtistDirect's bimonthly electronic newsletter. With its instant Send to a Friend button, the player also acts as a viral marketing tool, allowing fans to distribute music to each other. In addition, the company is including free enhanced CD samplers with the first 25,000 purchases made through the ArtistDirect.com online store, for each compilation issued. A coupon for 10% off any music on the compilation further encourages recipients to buy the full -length CDs that include the sampler's tracks. ArtistDirect Network editor Penny Hewson developed the You Gotta Hear This concept earlier this year when she began posting five artists per week in a category by the same name on ArtistDirect's home page, which now will feature each new sampler in its entirety. However, the goal was to have more impact than simply dropping her editorial weight on a song. One initial challenge she faced was "incorporating the connecting point between online and offline while validating what [the ArtistDirect Network is] doing." The company's primary objective is to connect music fans with the artists they love through each operational arm, including ArtistDirect.com, UBL, iMusic, and Downloads Direct. While the network already offers multimedia platforms for news, community interac-

BY MOIRA McCORMICK

CHICAGO-During the past eight years, Sugar Beats Entertainment has morphed from a vanity label into a genuine children's record company. Originally launched in 1994 as the recording imprint of Sugar Beats music collective spe-

-a

cializing in kid -friendly remakes of classic radio hits, led by Sherry Goffin Kondor (daughter of Carole King and Gerry Goffin) -the label has begun signing and releasing product by other artists. In the process, Sugar Beats Entertainment is opening up previously unexplored retail avenues. 'We started thinking about signing other artists about a year- and -a -half ago," Sugar Beats Entertainment VP /C00 Bonnie Gallanter says, adding, "We've been getting submissions for years, but we didn't hear anything that we wanted to bring in." Then, a kids' artist who goes by the name of Mr. Ray was introduced to them, and Gallanter, Kondor, and company sensed a perfect fit. "He appeals to both kids and parents, which is what Sugar Beats is all about," Gallanter says. "He has a Beatles -like sound, and he is great with kids." Mr. Ray's Start Dreaming was released a year ago. Then came Can You Hear a Lullaby by contemporary folk artist/harpist Dee Carstensen (with Julie Dansky), which came out last November. "It was our first lullaby album, and it took us into a whole other market," Gallanter says, referring to stores that cater to expectant and new mothers and their babies, such as Babies "R" Us, Bellini, Buy Buy Baby, Mother's Work, and Mimi's Maternity. `We've also

According to Gallanter, Car stensen's album paved the way for Kondor's first solo project, a lullaby album called Mel-

low My Baby: Soothing Songs and Lullabies, due out in June. Gal lanter says Sugar Beats Entertainment is talking to

American Baby magazine about sponsoring a CD sampler or a coupon that would be placed in the gift packs that hospitals give new mothers upon their discharge. She adds, `Were also working on getting our product into hospital gift shops." Kondor's album features King (who co -wrote original lullabies with Kondor) on backing vocals. Kondor's brother-in -law Greg Wills produced the album and co -wrote the track "Island

of Dreams" with King and Dean Miller. Along with classic nighttime arias, Kondor includes "Child of Mine," a lullaby her parents wrote for her when she was an infant. Gallanter says Sugar Beats Entertainment product was originally distributed by Music for Little People through Rounder Kids. "They were instrumental in getting us started in bookstores, educational stores, and children's specialty stores [such as FAO Schwarz, Zany Brainy, Right Start, and Lakeshore Learning Store], which is where our sales have continued to be strongest." Now, Sugar Beats product is non -exclusively distributed by Rounder Kids and New Sound/Allegro Music; Gallanter notes that they sell direct to Zany Brainy and Right Start. Plus, Follett Corp. handles education- market distribution to libraries, college bookstores, and museum stores. Rounder Records/Universal Music wholesales Sugar Beats to traditional record retailers like Tower Records, Musicland, and Transworld, as well as Best Buy, Barnes & Noble, and Borders Books & Music. "Borders does a wonderful job with children's music," Gallanter notes. "They merchandise it in the same area as children's books; they have a wonderful listening -station program, great displays, and knowledgeable salespeople." Mass merchants have been hard to crack, Gal lanter observes: "The product they carry is all char-

acter- driven-you need to have a TV or movie hook. But we're constantly getting calls and emails from parents around the country, asking when Sugar Beats will be available at Wal- Mart."

IPO For HMVNow Expected In MM-May BY LARS BRANDLE

LONDON -HMV Group expects to

Track

TM

BIG PROPOSAL Jim Caparro, the high profile executive who surprised the music industry by resigning as chairman of the Island Def Jam Group last December, is quietly making the rounds to the five majors. Sources say he is pitching a plan to consolidate manufacturing and fulfillment in a start-up company that he would helm and would be staffed by executives long associated with him. In making such a move, Caparro apparently is hoping that he could supply a solution to a problem that has stymied the industry for the past 18 months. During that time, each of the majors have had numerous conversations with each other in an attempt to partner on back-end operations in order to achieve substantial savings, since all of them have excess capacity during most of the year. But even though practically every combination of majors imaginable has engaged in conversations that ultimately might have led to only two or three companies doing manufacturing, warehousing, and fulfillment instead of all five, negotiations failed each time.

With each major employing between 900 and 2,000 workers in manufacturing and manning warehouse facilities, that means that if Caparro got some of the majors to back his plan, thousands of jobs could be trimmed. Moreover, while the majors' previous discussions would have kept separate distribution companies, Caparro's proposal is said to go one step beyond in calling for his company to handle sales and credit for small accounts, while leaving the five majors' distribution sales forces to separately call on the top 50 accounts, which collectively have about 85 %90% of the U.S. music business. While at least one major is said to be ready to embrace the plan and another is allegedly interested, others are said to be lukewarm or not interested. But the proposal only needs two majors to get started and could then serve as a test case for the other majors. Still, others wonder if such a plan could get the

green light from the Securities

&

Exchange Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, which share merger approval responsibilities for the federal government. In the past, other companies, including Valley Media, have tried to position themselves for such a role. But as the former architect and leader of Poly Gram Group Distribution (PGD) (five time winner of the large distributor of the year award from the National Assn. of Recording Merchandisers), Caparro brings instant credibility to his proposal. Moreover, he is said to be joined in the effort by John Esposito, who served as executive VP /GM at the Island BILLBOARD

Via e -mail, Caparro declined to comment. BIG VALUE:

About 70% of HMV shares will be offered to the public; most of the remainder will be split between equity stakeholders EMI and venture-capital group Advent International. EMI says it will hold about 11% of HMV shares after the flotation. That stake would be worth £90 million ($130.37 million). HMV expects to raise £351 million

tunes of its ailing North American and Asian divisions after the company floats in June (Billboard, April 27).

Although he concedes that market conditions remain difficult, Giles says that the group has "greatly

Sony Music- Division Sales Up 5% SMEJ Also Sees An Increase Of 2% BY MATTHEW BENZ

NEW YORK- Helped by favorable cur-

SONY yen ($4.83 billion). This came despite a 4% sales decrease in dollar terms at Sony Music Entertainment (SME)the U.S. -based operation that contributes 69% of the music division's total sales. Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) (SMEJ) sales rose 2 %. Overall, music operating income fell 1.5% to 20.2 billion yen ($152 million). At SME, operating income fell 20% because of slow sales, re-

losses. SMEJ operating income rose 18% because of cost -cutting and a gain on the sale of a studio. For the fiscal fourth quarter, sales for the music division fell 3% to 153.7 billion yen ($1.16 billion). Its operating loss was 2.1 billion yen ($15 million), vs. operating income of 8 billion yen ($61.4 million) in the same period a year earlier. For the new fiscal year, Sony forecasts increases in music sales and operating income, based on a strong release schedule and restructuring. Led by a loss in its main electronics business, Sony overall posted an

8.6% decrease in net income to 15.31 billion yen ($115 million), or 16.67 yen (13 cents) per diluted share. Sales rose 3.6% to 7.58 trillion yen ($56.98 billion).

may have already illegally obtained the new album by

street date from the Internet or via CD burning into the store to buy it. "That's the dream," says Steve Berman, head of sales and marketing at Interscope. But it also is a value -add that is being made available to all of retail. That hasn't always been the case with Inter scope, which sometimes gives exclusives to certain large discounters, to the dismay of other merchants. The DVD, like all premiums, additionally serves the purpose of spurring first -week sales of the album. And finally, retailers point out that with consumers' increasing resistance to front -line pricing, the DVD makes the album's $19.98 list price an attractive offer. Without getting specific, Berman says, "We wanted to create more value for the album, and we wanted to be able to share this value with all of retail." The album hits U.S. stores June 4 and will include the DVD only in the initial shipment, which is expected to be about 2 million here. Another 1.5 million to 2 million is expected to be shipped internationally. Also, Berman says the DVD will never be issued separately. On the heels of the album, Inter scope will release a live DVD from Eminem June 18 called All Access Europe, with entirely different material than the value -added DVD, reports Candace Berry, head of sales for Interscope. She says, "Of course, we are encouraging accounts to position

VidTrac data shows that DVDs accounted for $633.7 million in rental rev enue-an increase of 126% from first quarter 2001 and up 39% from the previous record fourth- quarter 2001 (which generated $455.8 million). In comparison, VHS rentals in the first quarter generated $1.5 billion, a 22.3% decrease from first-quarter 2001. In related news, the International Recording Media Assn. has released data staling that the number of DVDs replicated in North America will surpass the 1- billion level this year.

Slow & Steady Wins The Race To No. These Days, Rock Hits Are Taking Longer To Peak And Burn BY BRAM TEITELMAN

Airplay Monitor NEW YORKJimmy Eat World's "The Middle," Nickelback's "Too Bad," and Default's "Wasting My Time" all reached No. 1 on the Billboard Main-

stream and/or Modern Rock Tracks charts, but they took their time getting there -anywhere from 19 to 25 weeks from chart debut to summit, tying or breaking records for the longest climb to No. 1 in the process. Many labels agree that the number of releases, coupled with the multitude of available entertainment choices, result in songs kicking in later. 'There's a lot of music out there," Columbia senior VP of rock and alternative Jeff Sodikoff says. "At the same time, with the time spent listening being shorter now than it has ever been at radio, it takes longer for records to connect and register than it did a year or two ago, when there were less distractions and fewer records out there." Extasy national promotion director (East Coast) William Marion agrees: "Consumers have so many other things bombarding them that they're not listening to the radio as much. They're not paying as much attention to the songs, and they're not as familiar with them, so things are taking longer to research." Wind -up senior VP of promotion Sharma Fischer says, "There's a lot of music out right now. It's a very busy first and second quarter for labels, and I'm hearing from radio that records are taking longer to research. If they're not researching, they're not moving up, so it's taking them longer to research to a position where they're going to move up into those power rotations." Epic VP of rock promotion Cheryl Valentine says, "Some people won't power your record until it gets research, even though they should. There are people who don't just use research as a tool -they use it as their Bible and guideline."

Marion says that "when good research comes back, it takes longer for songs to burn. If something's not burning, people aren't hearing it that often. They may be familiar with it, but they're not tired of it, because they must not be listening as much as they used to." But it's not because it's taking hits by Linkin Park and Nickelback longer to test. Active WLZR (Lazer 103) Milwaukee PD Keith Hastings says,"If any-

l

PDs say it's both the quality of songs and listeners taking longer to hear the hits that keeps the songs on playlists. "Hit music finds a way," Hastings says. "Regardless of the amount of effort or lack thereof from the various marketing and promotion entities, if it's a hit, it will find its way to the consumer.

www.billboard.com

Sometimes at radio we're smart and on top of it, and sometimes we're behind the times and have to wait for certain cues from our audience before we realize we're about to miss the boat ... I also think that in today's `give it to me now' world, we have [such] unrealistic expectations for success in everything that we do that we sometimes underestimate the amount of time that it will take something to sink in in this overcrowded media environment." Active KRQC (the Dam) Omaha, Neb., PD Tim Sheridan says the glut of music makes it harder for him to move songs to heavy rotation. "There's so much product out there that you don't have a tendency to put it all in heavy rotation so quickly. Using P.O.D. as an example, `Youth of the Nation' is testing well, and all of a sudden, they have a new single. I'm not ready yet."

Former WRQC Fort Myers, Fla., PD Kylee Brooks says, "Some songs just won't die. Listeners like these songs, and what more could you ask for as a station than to have quality songs in

your power rotation that just won't burn or get negative scores? Often, labels are ready to move on to their next track before the radio stations see any deterioration of what they've got on the air." Sodikoff thinks it's advantageous to have more than one track by an artist on a station. "You want to secure as much longevity for a single as you can, because it helps you to sell records and extends the overall life of the album," he says. "If you look at System of a Down, `Chop Suey!' has been on the chart for over 35 weeks, and it's still not going away. It's working itself at this point because 'Toxicity' is a top five track.

With two records on the chart, they're helping each other. They're helping brand the band, the name, and the sound." Hastings says that with the amount of crossover now, it's in radio's best interest to keep a level of familiarity at his station. "I think that the crossover

phenomenon that's going on right now-where a lot of this stuff is starting at active rock, then crossing over to modern and crossing to top 40 and even crossing to adult top 40-mandates that active rock hang on to this

stuff a little longer than perhaps we would have a year ago. We're not about to put down an artist like Creed or Puddle of Mudd just because the top 40 station can't find anything to play."

Sheridan believes that new listeners are affecting his research scores. "We played the shit out of Deftones' `Change [In the House of Flies],' and it tested well as a current. And now that it's, in the library, it still tested really unfamiliar," he says. "It's taking longer for people to

know who bands are. Somebody called up last week and asked, `What song is this ?' and it was Linkin Park. I think we're getting more listeners that are tuning in to the station for the first time after hearing us play Nickelback and Linkin Park and Puddle of Mudd. Listeners will turn on a station and hear Hoobastank and like it, then hear Nickelback and Linkin Park in between the Rob Zombie they might not dig. It just seems like it takes longer." Label execs have mixed reactions when asked if they are working songs any longer than they did several years ago. Marion says, "It's absolutely taking a lot longer, and we're working them a lot longer. But my perspective might be skewed, coming from an artist- development- driven independent label. We simply put out fewer records. As the cost of doing business continues to increase, I think you'll see that more often where people are putting out fewer releases." Sodikoff sees it not as working fewer songs but choosing to "work a lot of records for as long as we possibly can. We worked Pete Yorn for

over a year, the same with John Mayer. It's about commitment -it's not about how the song's doing at radio -it's about the label's commitment to the record and how long we can persevere."

Waiting for research to kick in requires patience from labels. "I try to be understanding, but the record companies' goals differ from that of the radio stations," Valentine says. "Radio wants records that work and wants to keep playing them until they no longer work. Record companies want to see their singles impact sales." Marion says, "You have to be more patient, and it forces you to micro market more and start focusing on what we used to do, which is to get a song in a particular market and put all your efforts into making it hit in that market, knowing that another market may not get to it for 10 weeks. [Modern] KROQ [Los Angeles] came in on our record recently, which was week 13. Obviously, we've been working them the whole time, but we've had to continue to focus our efforts in places like Boston to make the song a hit. The product flow and the fact that the songs are staying on the charts for so long makes me have to sit back and wait for space." BILLBOARD

Showbiz.. TREACH -ING THE LIMITS: Naughty by Nature lead rapper Treach is a busy man.

Not only is he promoting the act's current TVT album, iicons (Billboard, April 27), but he is also featured in no less than six movies due for release this year. Those films are Love and a Bullet, Face,

the direct- to-video documentary 711pac Shakur: Thug Angel, Empire, Book of Love, and the HBO film Conviction. "When I'm working, that's my stress relief," Treach says. "I love movies and music. When I finish a song, it's like giving birth. I try to listen to it [objectively], like it's something I don't know. With movies, the character I play is someone I don't know, but I have to breathe life into it" In addition to his recording career, Treach has been a principal executive at his production/management company, Illtown. He remarks that as an up- and -coming actor, "you have to take what you can get. I'm using my acting career as a stepping stone so that once I become a big enough name in Hollywood, I'll do the roles I want to play. I've got enough time to rest when I'm dead," he says with a laugh.

LOOK BEHIND THIS WEEK'S CHART ACTION

by Silvio Pietroluongo, Minal Patel, Wade lessen

Counter. PERSONAL BEST: Record labels live to pledge

their intention to take this or that artist "to the next level." With Kenny Chesney storming to No. 1 on The Billboard 200 on an opening sum that is more than double his best -ever sales week, RCA Label

Group makes good on that promise.

Chesney, whose previous high was 103,000 units for Greatest

Hits during Christmas week 2000, piles through 235,000 copies of his new No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems. It's his second No. 1 on Top Country Albums. His Hits also crowned the country list and had represented his previous Billboard 200 peak, when it entered the big chart at No. 13. Following the reigns of the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack and Chesney's labelmate Alan Jackson, No Shoes is the third country album this year to reach No. 1 on The Billboard 200. This marks Nashville's biggest yield since 1999, when Tim McGraw, Dixie Chicks, and Faith Hill all hit the summit. While Jackson's first No. 1 on The Billboard 200 was driven by the connection the public felt with his Sept. 11 ode, "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)," Chesney's ascent is simply a good, old fashioned tale of artist development, scored in the same year when his concert profile graduates from opening act to headliner. He has charted three songs thus far from this album on Hot Country Singles & Tracks, located this issue at Nos. 4, 49, and 60. The first of those, "Young," peaked at No. 2. He has had four No. is on that list, dating back to 1997's "She's Got It All."

With no album since 1999, there simply was not enough TLC stock in the pipeline for the news of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes' death to make a dent on Top Pop Catalog Albums. Although it was under the radar, each of the trio's three sets saw significant increases, with the largest belonging to 1994's CrazySexyCool. At 3,000 -plus, it sold almost 10 times more than it did in the prior week. Arista ordered replenishments for all three albums by Friday, April 26, and BMG's plants worked overtime that weekend to meet the demand. With CrazySexyCool certified by the Recording Industry Assn. of America at 11 -times platinum, 1999's Fanmail at six times platinum, and O000000hhh ... On the HALF -STAFF:

BILLBOARD

MAY

11,2002

Minded.. TLC Tip at four-times platinum, TLC is the best -selling girl group of all time. Given the

last issue, Ashanti's "Foolish" sets The Billboard Hot 100 audience FOOLED AGAIN: As predicted

mark, inching

act's popularity and the scope of coverage on Lopes' passing, it would not be a surprise to see all three on next issue's catalog chart. While London -based labels wring their hands about the absence of U.K. artists on The Billboard Hot 100 (see story, page 1), one British vet displays considerable popularity in the U.S. Elvis Costello's first Island Def Jam album enters The Billboard 200 at No. 20 (39,000 units). It's his best showing on the big chart since 1980, when Get Happy!! peaked at No. 11. The very American Wilco also finds higher chart terrain at a new label home, as its Nonesuch debut enters at a career-high No. 13 (55,500 units). The title, which had originally been sched-

up to 150.5 million listeners. That figure surpasses

FRESH STARTS:

uled for release on Reprise (Billboard, April 6), far exceeds the

chart fortunes of four previous albums (including two done with Billy

Bragg). The band's first album, 1996's Being There, marked its previous peak when it entered at No. 73. Costello and Wilco benefited from a wealth of press, with Rolling Stone and The New York Times prominent among both acts' clippings. Costello had a turn on Late Night With David Letterman, while Wilco got a release-date profile at NPR'sAll Things Considered. Both acts were also bolstered by a rush of Internet activity.

the audience total of 149.9 million accumulated by Usher's "U Got It Bad" in the Jan. 19 issue. "Foolish" now holds the audience record on both the Hot 100 and Hot R &B/Hip -Hop Singles Si Tracks chart, as it grabbed the R &B crown in the April 6 issue with 66.5 million listeners, extending the mark to 73.8 million two weeks later. "Foolish" is now in its fourth week atop the Hot 100 and its seventh week at No. 1 on the R&B/Hip -Hop chart.

Unwritten Law scores its first Modern Rock Tracks No. 1 with its second chart hit, "Seein' Red." The band's previous charting title, "Cailin," peaked at No. 28 in September 1999. "Seein' Red" is the first song to reach the top of the Modern chart without simultaneously appearing on Mainstream Rock Tracks since Sum 41's "Fat Lip" last August. "Lip" never did make it onto the Mainstream chart, and it does not look like "Red" will make it there, either. With only 132 detections from 15 of the 102 reporting Mainstream Rock stations, it is 175 plays away from the No. 40 song, Familiar 48's "The Question." RED ROCKS:

For the second consecutive week, multi -million selling hip -hop artist places the Hot Shot Debut title on both the Hot 100 and Hot R &B /Hip -Hop Singles Si Tracks chart with the first release from a forthcoming album. Following the lead of Nelly's "Hot In Herre" is Eminem with "Without Me," from the scheduled June 4 release The Eminem Show. "Without" enters the Hot EM, TOO:

a

Special editions bring chart honors to a pair of Columbia albums, as System of a Down rallies the Greatest Gainer on The Billboard 200 (30 -14, up 66.5 %), while Pete Yorn vaults 12 -1 on Heatseekers (187111 on the big chart, up 74 %). The limited edition Down album is packaged with a bonus DVD, while the amended Yorn bundles a disc with a new mix of "Strange Condition," four Yorn videos, and covers from the Smiths, Bruce Springsteen, Iggy Pop, and David Bowie. Top Pop Catalog Albums greets Rhino's completists' box of the Band's legendary swan song The Last Waltz-roughly double the length of the original version -which peaked at No. 16 on The Billboard 200 in 1978. By eerie coincidence, No. 16 is also where this one starts on the catalog list, marking the first appearance by any Band title on this chart. NEW CLOTHES:

100 at No. 44 and Hot R&B/Hip -Hop Singles Tracks at No. 53.

the chart includes Steve Holy's "Good Morning Beautiful" (No. 19), Chris Cagle's "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out" (No. 14), and Tommy Shane Steiner's "What If She's an Angel" (No. 3). Holy and Cagle's titles each rose to No. 1 on this chart, and Steiner's single is still in contention, up 139 plays. Topping Hot Country Singles & Tracks for a fourth consecutive week is Toby Keith's "My List," which bullets with an increase of 62 detections. Although the statuesque Oklahoman is best -known for his uptempo "attitude" fare, he's forged a stellar set of stats with ballads and medium -tempo singles. Of

those slower songs, Keith's month -long reign at No. 1 with "List" is his longest to date, outdone only by his feisty "How Do You Like Me Now ?!" and "I Wanna Talk About Me," which each claimed five weeks. WITHOUT COMPLICATIONS: Singer /songwriter

Carolyn Dawn Johnson places two songs on the Hot 100, debuting at No. 71 with her current No. 12 country track, "I Don't Want You to Go," and re-entering at No. 96 with "Com-

plicated," her former top five country hit. "Complicated' re- enters as result of it

current pop ularity at Ad ult Contemporary radi() (it ranks No. 17 on

that

chart), where it was serviced

under the title of "So Complicated" to differentiate between Johnson's track and a similarly titled song currently being played at the format. In order to maintain consistency on the Hot 100, we will continue to chart the

title under its original "Complicated" title, also taking into account that its Hot 100 point total includes recurrent Country airplay. "Complicated" peaked at No. 59 last September and dropped off the Hot 100 in December. Thanks to its presence in the latest Mitsubishi car ad (you know -the

&

CAR CRAZY:

Steve Azar becomes the fourth artist in our current chart year to score his first top five hit on Hot Country

one with the female passenger popping in the shotgun seat), Dirty Vegas' "Days Go By" has caught on at radio and debuts at No. 84 on the Hot 100, joining the long list of car commercials to vault a song into the public consciousness. Mitsubishi was also a factor in the success of the Wiseguys' "Start the Commotion," which peaked at No. 31 last August, two years after that song's initial release.

THE WEEKEND:

Singles & Tracks, as "I Don't Have to Be Me ('Til Monday)" moves 7 -5 and swipes the chart's second -biggest gain (up 459 detections). Only Brooks & Dunn's "My Heart Is Lost to You" at No. 26 had a bigger increase, surpassing Azar's gain by five spins. The list of top five rookies Azar joins on

began to gain momentum, none more than Phish. "Clearly, the Dead were a big influence on how we approached [Phish's] career," says Phish manager

Dead Live On Continued from page

John Paluska. "Probably the biggest influence of all was a real sense of their long -term vision for their career, including developing mailing lists, letting people tape the shows, and every show being completely different and spontaneous. All of these things were an inspiration to Phish, that we could approach a musical career that way. I don't think we ever set out to specifically emulate the Grateful Dead, but it got into [our] blood." Lesh believes Dead-inspired improv-

this nomadic audience is being serviced via multi -act events like the Bon naroo Festival in rural Tennessee (see story, page 18), a first -time event that quickly sold out its inventory of more than 60,000 tickets without the benefit of traditional advertising. "The jam -band scene has exploded in America, and from my perspective

this is the most under -addressed genre in the world by the commercial music industry," observes John Scher, who served as the Grateful Dead's exclusive East Coast promoter until the band's touring demise. "There are festivals the mainstream press never hears about that sell 30,000 tickets consistently, and all of these bands and sociological offshoots owe a great debt to the Grateful Dead." Today's burgeoning jam -band scene is "real interesting to see" for founding Grateful Dead member Bob Weir. "I'm honored and flattered that they say they were influenced by us," Weir says.' We just did what we thought was the right thing to do." Cameron Sears, former Dead manager and current president/CEO of Grateful Dead Productions, adds: 'We're very supportive of anything that pushes the boundaries of what the business and music is all about, and we're heartened that some of these bands have used our business model to develop their own. The highest form of flattery is when people mimic what you did, and the fact that these bands are doing this is a testament to the Grateful Dead's foresight." HAPPY ACCIDENT

The Grateful Dead were always first and foremost a live act, thriving on the

spontaneous artistic combustion that the concert format afforded. "When we started out, the idea was to play music and see where that took us, and it took us on the road," says Weir, whose post -Dead band is known as RatDog. "We started out as a dance band, and as the years went on, people started facing the stage and listening, and we became a performing act." And, indirectly, a recording act. "Our process was to beat a song to death on the road and then record it, because by that time everybody's part had evolved to where we could really tell a story," founding member Phil Lesh explains. "That process takes too long in the studio." Sears says, "The Grateful Dead were more interested in the moment and what they could create at any given time, as opposed to what they were able to `fix' in a studio." The natural by- product of such

spontaneity was unpredictability, which in turn led to each show being a unique event never stale to fans. Hence, Deadheads could see show after show (after show after show) without

over-exposure to songs or even arrangements within songs. "It was challenging, but it also kept things interesting," Weir says. "It kept us invested in the music, alive and kicking note to note, bar to bar." With each show being one of a kind

isation drives the train even today. "That approach is probably the basic concept of what's informing this whole artists scene. It's nothing new have been doing that for 100 years now. But I think we did bring it to rock." Paluska says that, once they were analyzed, many Grateful Dead business practices were quite logical. "A lot of

commonplace practice that glorified the band's product instead of devaluing it. "Allowing their shows to be taped was really the best thing they ever did, because nothing's better than a free sample," says Dennis McNally, a longtime Dead publicist/historian whose book A Long Strange Trip The Inside History of the Grateful Dead is due in August. "It was a genius marketing move, but nobody realized it. We allowed it because we were bad cops. We said `yes' because saying `no' was too much trouble." By the early 1980s it became evident that large numbers of fans were tracking the Grateful Dead from city to city. "It became apparent when we started seeing the same people in the front row night after night," Lesh says. "There were always Deadheads, but it became noticeable in the early '80s that people were following tours. What

-

fed that was when we opened our own ticket office brilliant move, mostly because it allowed for people with lives

-a

to go to shows and kept our demographic complicated," McNally explains. "The bulk of the shows we sold to a whole range of people from students to young professionals that would see three or four shows, not 20 out of 25." The Grateful Dead were dedicated to giving fans the right convergence of venue, ticket price, convenience, and experience. "More than any other band of their time, they put fans first-not

the record company, not the music business," Scher says. "They were

incredibly fan -friendly on a lot of levels. They played long shows, it was a different show every night, and they were

musically innovative." Scher says the Grateful Dead paid close attention to what their fans wanted. "They were getting feedback early on, way before the Internet. They paid attention to the fans, and they paid attention to the venue. If the kids loved a certain venue, they'd say, `Let's play there more often.' " Eventually, the combination of nomads and fervent locals led to given sellouts. "Ultimately, promoters realized we were doing half their work for them," McNally says. "The batting average was unbelievable. This side of the Rolling Stones, nobody did the kind of business we did, week in week out it didn't matter if we had an album." Businesswise, the Grateful Dead may not have been overly professional by today's standards, but they were at least consistent, as well as remarkably fair and straightforward. "They were the most honest, most loyal people in the world," Scher says. "We never had a contract; always just a handshake." In today's environment, a band as powerful at the box office as the Dead would attract lucrative national touring offers from corporate promoters. So if the Grateful Dead were touring in 2002, would they be a Clear Chan-

and

nel Entertainment tour? "Probably without a doubt no," Sears says. "The band was very supportive of independent promoters, and [we] remained loyal to the people that stayed with us as we developed. Some of those are Clear Channel people now and some are still independent. But I don't think we would sell a tour to Clear Channel for a lot of money and let them take it out of the hides of fans." Scher takes a similar view. "They were never about money. They made a lot of money, and they knew how much was there to be made, but their ticket prices were unbelievably realistic. I don't think there is any chance they would've succumbed to offers like that" Asked if he thought the Dead would have gone out as a corporate tour, Weir says, "I rather doubt it, actually. It seems kind of antithetical to the way we did things. It may have been con-

venient, but it smacks a little bit of monopolistic practice. I don't think that would have sat well or even worked well for us in the end." Lesh is even more succinct. "The Grateful Dead would have never done that." WHERE ARE ALL THE DEADHEADS?

When the Grateful Dead's touring abrupt end with Garcia's untimely death, an audience of literally millions was left without an immediate focal point. McNally thinks a lot of them just settled down. "Some of them had been putting off their lives and living an extended vacation, and then it was lime to have the baby, buy the house," he says. "Now they just go to fewer shows, a Phil & Friends show or a RatDog show, [and] that nurtures them. The single biggest error of the media was that all of our life came to an

these decisions become common sense when trying to build a grassroots following, with the live show as its centerpiece. It becomes intuitive." Still, Paluska doesn't think Deadheads naturally gravitated to Phish post-1995. "We were already an arenalevel act when the Dead stopped touring," Paluska points out. "Over time, we may have picked up some of [the Deadheads], but I think we had to win them over one fan at a time. I do think right away we got a lot of their parking-lot entrepreneurs, who were ready to take advantage of what they thought might be the next big scene." In 2002, String Cheese Incident (SCI) is making rapid ascension in the jam -band world. Like the Dead, SCI operate completely in -house and inspire a nomadic following. "I think the spirit of String Cheese Incident is very similar to the spirit of what the Grateful Dead were all about," SCI agent/manager Mike Luba says. "Like the Dead, we have our own newsletter, but we're basically children of the Internet. That's why it took us six years to do what the Dead did in 30 years." Luba says today's vital jam-band scene is a direct legacy of the Dead. "The Dead broke down so many barriers for people. They were the last great American adventure, and we were able to tap into that. Touring with a rock band is the last truly free thing you can do in America."

This summer, surviving Grateful Dead members and other like -minded artists will gather Aug. 3-4 at the Alpine Valley Music Theater (near Chicago) for a brace of concerts sure to be a huge

success. Among those tentatively audience went to all of our shows and lived in parking lots. When the Grateful Dead stopped touring, I think while some of the fans gravitated to other bands, most just kicked back a little bit" When the Dead died, the Furthur Fest (the first incarnation of which featured RatDog and Dead drummer Mickey Hart's Planet Drum), as well as tours by Phil Lesh & Friends, Bruce Hornsby, and other Dead offshoots, had immediate followings. "A lot of acts are filling that niche, not the least of which are the [Dead] guys themselves," Scher says. Likewise, a new breed of acts influenced by the Dead, at least philosophically,

scheduled to perform are RatDog, Phil Lesh & Friends, the TriChromes (featuring ex -Dead drummer Bill Kreutzman), Mickey Hart's Bembe Orisha, Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, and postDead outfit the Other Ones. According to Sears, "One of the things the Grateful Dead did that allowed the jam scene to evolve into what it has become -which we support and are heartened by introduce a whole audience to a style of music that did not have to be rote and was experimental, pushed boundaries, and was not hit driven. People responded to us, and in the case of today's bands, a lot of people are still responding."

Further worldwide recognition for EMI came last month, when Britain's Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) awarded the company the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2002, recognizing "sustained outstanding achievement in international trade."

PSEUDO POP NEED NOT APPLY

Lester has reservations. "It's always down to repertoire," he says. "Government initiatives are all very well, but if you put a [British] record out in that market, and it's good, I promise it will sell. [U.S. labels] want to sell records." JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS?

Lester doubts that the recent adverse publicity is a reliable weather vane regarding lack of talent. "[Sony Music Entertainment senior VP of A &R] Dave Massey has been hired in a roaming role by Sony," he adds. "That's a senior executive hired to import talent. At Atlantic, co- president Craig Kaltman comes to the U.K. on a monthly basis looking for repertoire, and Atlantic has a tie -up with [Lester's label] Wildstar as an early source of A &Ring.

those singles. Steve Lillywhite, recently appointed joint managing director of Mercury U.K., has more successful experience of the U.S. market than most. For 25 years, he has produced a vast array of U.K. acts, including Simple Minds, XTC, Big Country, Thompson Twins, Psychedelic Furs, Morrissey, and U2. "I know the American market better than I know the U.K. market," Lillywhite says. "Music is an art form they invented. I always remember being [in the U.S.] when Milli Vanilli were exposed as frauds, and it made the [national evening] news. I grew up in the '60s in England, where people didn't always sing on their records, and we do have a culture of that. America takes it much more seriously, and it means they don't buy into our packaged pop. The music has to stand alone."

the U.K. are developing artists without any consideration of America. He says, "I don't know any other industry that would favor trying to find the most difficult, small, fractured bits of the world and attack those but not bother with the U.S., a 39% market." But EMI Recorded Music vice chairman David Munns says he doesn't care where his U.S. successes come from. "As far as EMI is concerned, we want to be involved with and associated with records that sound like hits to us. I don't care if it comes from the moon." He adds, "I think British acts

sometimes underestimate the

sheer effort [it takes] to compete in the American market. To take chunks out of an artist's schedule like that can logistically be very difficult." Commenting on the summer release of the second album by one of the company's biggest U.K. acts, Coldplay (which has scanned 1.2 million units in the U.S. of its

acknowledges, though, that hard work does not guarantee success: "Coldplay is a sign of someone who broke through in a big way as did David Gray and Dido -but Travis didn't.

the U.K. and the U.S. has worked for Zero 7. "We're the most important thing that they have; we get all the love and attention." Slater agrees with deGooyer on the importance of MTV2, which now beams into 40 million U.S. homes. He says, "They've been instrumental in helping identify projects as credible and viable." For his part, MTV2 GM David Cohn admits to being perplexed at the lack of airplay British acts are getting on mainstream U.S. radio. "We don't understand why some of this stuff hasn't connected at radio in the way it has with us," Cohn says. "We've always known from MTV that it helps if there are other things [such as radio]. [Sometimes] we're not convinced, and we need to see some airplay and other things before we jump on board." Slater cites U.K. signing Dirty Vegas as an example of how to start a marketing campaign without radio or music TV. The band's album comes out June 4 in the U.S. The single "Days Go By" is being used in a high -profile U.S. commercial for Mitsubishi Eclipse and

changes in the chart's methodology and the fast demise of the U.S. retail single than the relative popularity of British acts. When the Hot 100 was revamped in December 1998, the chart's radio pool was expanded beyond top 40, adult, and modem rock stations to include other rock formats, as well as R&B and country stations. Latin stations were added the following year. While that expansion has added more titles from R &B, hip -hop, and country to the chart, rock acts that do not attract attention from top 40 formats have a harder time reaching the Hot 100, because nationally, the rock formats draw smaller audiences. In 2002, with many top 40 stations leaning toward R&B and hip -hop, an average of 47.5% of the titles on the Hot 100 in a given week come from those formats, with country accounting for another 19.25 % -genres in which British acts are less inclined to connect here. Pop acts account for an average of 19.5% of the chart's weekly content, with rock representing 13.75 %. Consequently, though an act like British band Radiohead is popular enough in the U.S. to have its previous two studio albums debut at Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, on The Billboard 200 and sell out concert

head, who have only been played on rock radio, singles sales no longer provide an easy alternate route to the Hot 100. Even in the rare instance when a pop or rock artist releases a commercial single, sales are much smaller than in past years. So, although Radiohead spent eight weeks on the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart last year with "Knives Out," it only sold 3,000 units during

its opening week and less than 13,000 in those eight weeks combined, failing to create enough chart points to reach the Hot 100. Brits, though, have become in-

creasingly visible on The Billboard 200 in recent years. In 1999, U.K. acts accounted for 3.1% of all SoundScan units sold by albums that appeared on the big chart, down from 5.5% in 1995. But the U.K.'s market share grew in the next two years, to 7.4% in 2000 and to 8.1% in 2001. From the start of the current chart year through last week, U.K. acts accounted for 25 of the 473 albums that have appeared on The Billboard 200 and 5.1% of the units sold by that chart's titles. With Elvis Costello bowing at No. 20 and Pet Shop Boys entering at No. 73, there are nine titles by Brits on this issue's Billboard 200; venues, it has been absent from three more appear on Heatseekers.

UNEXPECTEDLY POSITIVE RESULTS

By bucking the system, Weezer has ended up on better ground with Geffen/Interscope. After a few angry phone calls and no doubt

"That's what call screening is for," Cuomo says afterward, sounding equal parts annoyed and amused. "It's endless! Delete!" With a journalist on the phone, Cuomo knows he's being somewhat naughty and that's probably why he's having such fun. "I give 'em shit all the time. They have no idea how to deal with me," he says of Geffen and Interscope staffers before getting serious for a moment. "I don't want to be difficult, I just have to protect my band and our creative selves. The industry is geared toward exploiting our creative resources and laying them to waste, and I have to protect them. And so I get a reputation as being difficult. But if you're willing to help us and nurture us, I'm not difficult at all." Considering that the LA group has rarely stuck to beaten paths be they musical or professional-it somehow seems strangely perfect that 31-year -old Cuomo is not only the frontman of and the main creative force behind Weezer but also now the guardian of the band and its music. In fulfilling his desire to protect the band and its material-and to realize his

many deep breaths, the mailings caused the singer and the label to sit down and hammer out an agreement that ultimately promises the band more control over how and when the group's albums are released and promoted. Though both parties will obviously need to compromise on certain issues, Schur says he and Interscope are now letting Cuomo lead the way: "Rivers is in the best position to lead Geffen in the Weezer business. And so when it comes to communicating to radio or to anyone, I want everyone to know that we're really following Rivers' lead. I want his fans to have a direct connection to him and to his band." However unconventional, that strategy seems to have already worked: By sending out these samplers himself, Cuomo certainly appears to have forged or re- forged a direct connection with radio and press, which certainly strengthened his relationship with his fans as a result. Cuomo says the band would have surely left the label if it wasn't bound by its original contract, which requires the group to deliver

devices, we kind of stop doing a lot of things that bands are supposed to do [these days]. So things have gotten much simpler." Guitarist Brian Bell says, "Nothing has really changed as far as the amount ofwork that's been coming in. We may even be getting more, just because of how much we've been in the public eye in the past year. But one thing that has changed within the band is that because we feel more mature and more responsible of what the future holds for us, it's kind of reassuring. Who would have better interest in us than Rivers? No one." WELCOMING WEEZER BACK

Roughly two years ago, management and label concems were in the very back of the band members' minds. Weezer, at that point, had been dormant for years. The band

had virtually disappeared after its sophomore effort, 1996's Pinkerton, was greeted with a chilly response, thus devastating Cuomo, who had poured himself into the album's dark and passionate songs. When the band re- emerged in 2000, it was "prepared to start from scratch," Bell says. Cuomo remembers being moved nearly to tears after arriving at the stage for the group's first show in years the Fresno, Calif., stop on the 2000 Vans Warped tour the very moment Weezer was being announced as a surprise guest. He recalls, "There was just a second of hesitation in which our hearts stopped, and then we heard the crowd just go crazy, and it was the greatest feeling." Such was the beginning of a striking comeback, which has seen the band sell out arenas with regularity and its 2001 seta second eponymous effort known by fans and the band as The Green Album-sell more than 1.3 million copies in the U.S. alone. Booked by Don Muller at Creative Artists Agency in Beverly Hills, Calif., Weezer is currently on a schedule that sees it switching from the road to the studio and vice, versa every three weeks -which helps keep things fresh while affording opportunities to try out

In a move that was as rare as it is for a band as popular and commercially successful as Weezer to be self-managed, the singer/guitaristanxious for fans to hear the band's new material -personally sent a disc carrying eight of Maladroit's 13 songs to key radio and press outlets. Included was a letter on Weezer stationary that introduced the new album and explained that the band hoped to issue Maladroit in late April.
