'The new Soul Coughing coming out [Tuesday] is really cool. It's called "El Oso." They haven't really broken through yet, but they're such an adventurous band. [Singer] Michael Doughty's voice is so different, and we need stuff to stand out like that.'
host, "Morning Becomes Eclectic," KCRW-FM (89.9)
'Fat Boy Slim has a new album, "You've Come a Long Way Baby," coming soon. Norman Cook [the artist's real name] has a way of putting together a dance song that becomes an anthem. . . . He has this constant energy through a whole song where he breaks it up and down and backwards and it's great.'
co-owner, 1500 Records, an electronic dance music label
'Alanis Morissette's album will be like James Cameron's next movie. It almost doesn't matter how Cameron's next is, but because of the success of "Titanic," everyone will want to see it at least once. Same for Morissette's record.'
