Cream of the Local Scene: Musically They're All Over the Map

The L.A. music scene continued to diversify in 1993, expanding, if possible, on the eclecticism that marked last year's list. Rap, folk, grunge, roots, new wave, pop-rock, industrial and more are represented in this look at new acts that made the biggest area impact this year .

Possum Dixon: Throw skinny ties on these guys and it'd be just a tad too close to new-wave redux, but the propulsive energy of their new Interscope debut album and, especially, their live shows helps keeps things in the present tense.
