critic's choice MUSIC
Friday 24 February 1995
New York rappers who made a favourable impression here with the album Niggamortis. Their tales are from the dark side, but definitely not gangsta- orientated.
Thurs 2 Mar, Subterania, W10
Mary Lou Lord
Left-field, hot-hearted singer-songwriter whom Courtney Love wants to kill (she used to go out with Kurt Cobain before Courtney married him). Her current album is presently collecting accolades.
Tomorrow, Water Rats, WC1
An Indian in London
Starting on Sunday, "An Indian in London" runs weekends and Wednesdays for a fortnight in the Union Chapel Studio Theatre. It's a chance to sample resident, traditional South Asian musical talent. Not all the big British- based names are appearing, but there's a good range of classical Indian styles, instrumentalists and singers, and later some jazz cross-over work from Talvin Singh. Catch the festival launch at 3pm free, with drama, stalls and food promised.
Sun 26 Feb & Wed 1 Mar, Union Chapel Studio Theatre, Islington, N1
