Music for Hie Hard Core of Thinkers
D.O.A. are undeniably
the dean of Vancouver's
underground music scene.
They have survived the pressures of hard core for about
six years and with the release
of War on 45 early this year
have made major gains in the
American alternative music
scene as well. Their message
has always been overtly political, but this aspect of the band
has never been so obvious or
controversial as it has since
the release of D.O.A.'s most
recent single Burn It Down.
The flip side of the single is
Fuck You, penned by former
Subhuman Gerry Useless,
better known to the public as
Gerry Hannah, who is at
present facing a myriad of
charges connected with acts of
political sabotage such as the
bombings of a B.C. Hydro
substation and of Lytton
Industries in Toronto, manufacturer of the guidance
system for the Cruise missile.
Gerry and four other Vancou-
verites have been dubbed the
Vancouver Five, and proceeds
from the single are going
towards the defence of the
five.
With the political aspect of
D.O.A. taking on such a high
profile and with word of a
couple of releases coming up,
we decided it was time to talk
to the band. Chris Dafoe and
I set up a cozy living room
atmosphere in the CITR studio
and began to take bets on how
late the band would be this
time. Fortunately, they arrived just as I left to discharge
the nonalcoholic portion of my
last beer. D.O.A. offstage are
as laid back as they are
frenetic in performance. Joey
Shithead tends to act as
spokesperson, but the other
guys are quick to interject or
disagree. All have become
fairly articulate over the
years, and the band did not
duck any of our more pointed
questions. The discussion
ranged freely over personnel
changes, new releases, old
memories, future plans and,
of course, the band's support
of the Vancouver Five.
DISCORDER: Why don't
you start by introducing your
new drummer.
SHITHEAD: Gregg James
is his name. Gregg San Jose
James, they call him.
GREGG: So why did you
join the band, Gregg?
JAMES: [tongue firmly
planted in cheek] It's a new
challenge for me joining sucn
a great band. I've seen that
you guys are such a lot of fun
that here I am.
SHITHEAD: That's exactly what we want to hear.
DISCORDER: What happened with Dimwit?
SHITHEAD: It's basically
personality differences and
stuff like that. Disagreements
on how to do stuff. We're still
friends with him and all that.
There's no problem along that
line. He still lives in the same
house as the other three guys
in the band, so we haven't
been able to uproot him.
Faulty Products, collapsed. So
now we're working with this
company called CD., you
know, like the civil defense
fallout shelters.
DISCORDER: So did Burn
It Down, Fuck You come out
on CD.?
SHITHEAD: Yeah, in the
United States. Actually, it
came out under our own label,
which is called Sudden Death,
in Canada.
GREGG: The only problem
we've ever had in that area is
with the record company back
east not wanting the single to
come out on their label because it was a little too
controversial for 'em, and
they thought it would reflect
on their credibility. They
didn 7 look at the commercial
advantages, I guess.
DISCORDER: You've been
doing some recording recently
as well.
SHITHEAD: Actually,
we 've been working on a few
different things. We just came
back from California a couple
of days ago. We're doing a
new six song EP. It should be
out sometime around Christmas or a little time afterwards. That's about half done.
We've done the basic tracks
and the vocals, but it still
needs gu, tars and mixing. The
other thing that we've done is
pretty well completed except
for the back cover, and it's a
compilation of the first two
albums we did plus a few
other cuts. It's all been remixed at Fantasy Studios in
Berkeley. It's going to be
released as one album called
Bloodied But Unbowed. It's
sort of a retrospective type
album encompassing songs
from '78 to '83.
DISCORDER: When will it
be released?
SHITHEAD: Within a few
weeks I would think, at least
in the U.S. Maybe a little
longer in Canada.
DISCORDER: There has
been a label change since War
on 45.
SHITHEAD: Alternative
Tentacles is still going, but
their financier,   which  was
DISCORDER: How is that
release doing?
SHITHEAD: It must have
sold about two thousand in
Canada and about four thousand in the States so far, which
is pretty good for a short
release. It's just started to get
going. It was a little bit
disorganized at first, because
we were doing a lot of
distributing ourselves. The
reason for that, the people in
Toronto thought it was too
much of a hot potato to
handle, so we ended up doing
everything ourselves, 'cause
they chickened out on it.
DISCORDER: The releases
of the benefit single bring
your politics and a bunch of
other issues into sharp focus.
Do you ever have problems
with promoters in that
respect?
SHITHEAD: Not particularly. Most of the promoters
that we deal with are fairly
conscious of what's going on
anyways, so they're all for this
kind of stuff. That's basically
the network of people that we
deal with. Sometimes we deal
with straighter companies,
and most of them see that
we're a good band, and they
go out and promote us. Our
politics are part of the band.
It's one of the things that
interests people and draws
them to us.
DISCORDER: Have you had
similar problems in the
States?
GREGG: No. People are
pretty  unaware  of it  in   the
SHITHEAD: We just finished doing a gig in San Francisco with MDC, Toxic Reason
and Sluglords which was well
attended. There were somewhere in the neighborhood of
seven or eight hundred came
out to it even though X was
playing across town. It was
not a benefit, but it was an
awareness type thing to get
people down there thinking
about stuff up here like the
Vancouver Five and things
specifically relating to that
case. You got to get people
going on it, because that kind
of thing can happen anywhere. Anybody can get nabbed at any time, so if you
don 7 stand up for people in
other places, pretty soon
who's going to be left to stand
up foe you ?
DISCORDER: What is the
basis of your support for the
Five? Is it a political decision
or friendship or ...?
GOBLE: Gerry Useless was
one of my earliest friends. He
was probably the first person I
ever knew. I met him when I
was about six years old. So a
lot of the support I give them
is from long time friendship.
Mostly I'm concerned to see
them get as fair a trial as
possible, and they're not getting the funds necessary from
Legal Aid or anything like
that.
SHITHEAD: Well, it's kind
of a counter reaction. A lot of
it's based on friendship, but
when you have one side
putting the screws down then
the other side has to buck up
and get people to act against
it. When the government is
using everything in its power
to nail these people on every
charge you can think of, it's
like throwing a pile of mud at
a brick wall and seeing what
sticks. So it's political and it's
friendship.
GREGG: And the issues are
much bigger than the individ-
ial people and individual issues brought up in this case.
We're defending and campaigning for a lifestyle that we
think offers some kind of
future for everybody in the
world as opposed to the future
that is presented by someone
that would actively engage in
manufacturing weapons.
There's no future in that.
People have just got to realize
that. Either human life is
going to be the most important factor in the future or
profit is going to be, no matter
what the human costs.
DISCORDER: One of the
more decisive issues that has
been raised by the case of the
Vancouver Five has been the
question of what kind of
tactics are acceptable to
achieve and defend this
humane lifestyle. Where do
you draw those lines?
SHITHEAD: Personally, we
have our own tactics. Everybody can see what that is.
What we do with the band is
we go out and try to communicate with people and get them
thinking about stuff as well as
the other type of thing you do
in a band, which is to entertain people. As far as other
types of tactics go, well, there
are various ways you can try
and knock down a brick wall. I
don't think we're about to go
out and throw a bunch of
bombs or anything like that,
but the idea is, the more
pressure people apply, the
stronger the powers that be
are going to react. That's the
bottom line of the thing I
think.
GREGG: Basically, all of us
have the highest regard for
human life. I wouldn't support
any kind of tactics that lowered anybody to the level of
actually physically hurting
another person; but, personally, as far as destruction of
property   goes,   all's   fair.

iCettera to toe Airfjeafc
Dear Airhead:
Like I ate these mushrooms
man back in August. Oh
WOW like I got a real super
high for like an age man. So
like when I came down I didn't
feel good man. So like then I
went to turn on CITR man and
like it wasn't there. Oh wow I
was like scared or something
man, you know? O.K., so then
I turned my stereo on again
(like later you know thinking I
was still really high or wasted
or whatever) but oh wow it
was like still missing. The guy
on the radio station I did get
said like:
"Bob Smith's heifer dropped another one last night,
that's 4 in 2 years. What a
cow! It's won every year at the
Prince George Fall Fair since
its first calving!"
So while I thought about
this wonderful cow I chances a
glance outside. OH WOW,
now I like remember .. I LIVE
IN PRINCE GEORGE NOW! I
WORK IN A RADIO STATION NOW! IN LIKE PRINCE
GEORGE!!!!?
No wonder the mighty "R"
isn't available. What will I do?
No booming baritone of Big
Bad Bobby SIMMS. No rambling Chris Dafoe. No more
aimlessly hanging around the
lounge doing absolutely nothing (they make you work up
here — often). No Jenny
Fahrni looking overworked
and crazed with anxiety (of
course, I get that looking in
the mirror). NO PUNG LOK!
Not a drop!
Any how Airhead, what I
want to say is ... Help! I LIVE
IN PRINCE GEORGE. What
will I do!? Please send advice
to: JOE'S Place
Near the Park
Great White North, B.C.
V2L 1L7
JOE MARCH	
If I was you, Joe, I'd kidnap
Bob Smith's heifer, demand
an exorbitant ransom and get
the hell out of Prince George.
Failing that, eat a lot more
mushrooms.
Dear Airhead,
Do not, repeat, do not
believe anything my mother
says. I have just read ID
magazine's alert on "How to
Spot Whether Your Parents
Smoke Dope." (Which I include for your reading.) My
mother answers yes to four of
the five criteria. Beware!
HOW TO SPOT IF YOUR
PARENTS SMOKE DOPE--
Dopers have burn marks on
their duvets and use organic
shampoo. They also sit around
watching the Russell Harty
Show with the sound turned
down while they listen to bad
dub records that are stuck in
the first groove. They also
display most of the early
warning signs of pre-senile
dementia, i.e.: forgetful,
nervous and confused. Apart
from that, it is relatively
harmless.
Signed lyee Jones
****************
Dear Airhead,
My nephew lyee has just
brought home the latest copy
of Discorder. Thank-you for
bringing all those wonderful
ideas on improved reception.
We (the Jone's) have found
two separate methods of improving reception problems.
One is to have Zoff (my
husband of 45 years — picture
enclosed) hang around the
neighborhood. The second
method is to have lyee strung
upside down from the bedroom chandelier by 3 ohm
cablewire (available from any
electronics shop) with the
radio antenna acting as a
guide wire, to keep him from
swinging in the wind. The first
system is a bit more reliable,
because lyee tends to tire
easily.
Signed (Aunt) Anna Jone's
P.S. Since Zoff is presently
unemployed, we are willing to
rent out services as a mobile
antenna, to neighborhoods,
for short periods.
Dear Airhead,
I understand that you are
having trouble getting an
adequate supply of letters for
your excellent column. This is
truly a shame.
What's gone wrong with the
world? Here the students and
listeners of CITR have a
perfect opportunity to express
themselves to all of you directly and does anyone take you
up on this golden chance? You
bet I do.
I have one suggestion for
your paper and your station.
.. .Would it be possible to have
a bit more comedy on both?
Other than that, I think that
CITR and Discorder are two of
the truly great reasons to
continue living.
Thank you for your time.
Yours sincerely,
Jim Spriggs
Vancouver, B.C.
Dear Airhead,
The other night I went to
see the movie "Gandhi" at
the S.U.B. auditorium. The
show was very good but, the
fellow sitting next to me
wouldn't share the armrest
and so my enthusiasm for the
movie was somewhat diminished.
As I am frightened by the
dark and also by strangers,
and particularly by the combination of the two, I didn't
say anything.
What should I do if this ever
happens again?

CONTINUED FR PG 1
GOBLE: We haven't delved
into the internal things of
what's happening. We just
work at our own speed. We're
not really associated with the
defence committee or anything like that, and we just
donate the money to them.
They talk to the people that
are in jail, and they decide the
best way to use the money.
SHITHEAD: Of course,
everybody has their own opinion about what's going on. But
as far as I know, there has
been no big split or anything
like that. Everybody is being
pretty level headed and keeping the most important things
first rather than miniature
power struggles or anything
like that.
DISCORDER: Has there
been any reaction from your
fans, positive or negative,
regarding your support for the
Five?
GREGG: / can think of a
few cases of people scratching
their heads a little bit and
asking what is this Vancouver
Five all about, which is a
pretty positive thing, but
never saying, "Wow, you
guys are crazy, I don't want to
have anything to do with
you.''
SHITHEAD: You get different people coming to see us
for different reasons. Some
people come and listen really
closely to what's going on, the
political and social messages.
But the other thing the band
does is entertain people, and
some people just put the other
stuff aside and are just entertained.
DISCORDER: We hear
rumors about a trip to Europe.
SHITHEAD: Well, most reports have been less than
factual, or at least a little
premature. It might take till
January to go. We've just got
the tapes equalized and put in
order all ready to go, and the
art is just about ready for the
cover of the English release,
so that's ready to go. When
exactly we go is a bit hard to
say.
DISCORDER: You were in
England in 1981. What kind of
reaction did you get?
GOBLE: The reaction was
"Go back to Canada. "
GREGG: People were not
that different from playing
any place for the first time.
They were a little bit shy, but,
as we usually do, we can
usually loosen people up fairly
quickly. We played four shows
on four consecutive nights,
and by  the last night there
before,and we had created a
real small basis for a really
positive thing.
SHITHEAD: This time it'll
be much more planned out
and now we have three releases in England and hopefully soon one in Germany too,
so this time should be more
extensive. We'll go everywhere we can. Maybe we'll try
and sneak into some Eastern
Bloc countries and show up at
a Polish rock festival.
As I prepared this interview
for Discorder, a few nagging
questions still tugged at my
mind. The so-called underground music scene has, over
the last few years, become
much more accessible and
viable. Politically oriented
bands such as D.O.A. and the
Dead Kennedys are still serving the same message as they
did a few years ago, albeit to a
larger audience. The step
from entertainment to awareness seems to be a fairly easy
one. But the step from awareness to action seems to be
larger than many of us are
willing to take. And meanwhile, the war machine roars
on and on ...

An Alternative to Vinyl! part 2
DISCORDER NOV 83
**********
It's time once again to take
a look at the latest developments in the world of independent tape releases.
Quite a lot has transpired
since the May issue of
DISCORDER, the one in
which CITR listeners were
first introduced to this most
inspiring form of music distribution; and there are certain
outfits, just recently brought
to my attention, that are very
worthy of note. As mail order
cassette distribution is such a
sensible and, for all concerned, economically feasible way
of getting one's music heard,
it's npt surprising that its
growth in recent years has
been phenomenal, especially
considering recent improvements in chrome tape frequency response and overall
quality. Interest in Vancouver
is very encouraging, even
though, as yet, we don't have
a major distributor in town
(save for the future exploits of
CLAS, CLEM/ALIEN
SOUNDTRACKS' distribution). The focus of attention of
this article will be on two
distribution/label services,
one American, one British,
but inevitably it will come to
include other countries'
music, vinyl and tape, as
well.
Much to my surprise and
delight, one of the newest and
most interesting of America's
new music distributors does
its business from the confines
of Fort Collins, Colorado. The
company I refer to is called
Aeon Imports and has been in
existence for about three
years now, under the direction
of Kent Hotchkiss. Its inception was due to a decided lack
of progressive music outlets in
the midwestern states. Aeon
carries a great deal of European music, mostly in the
experimental category, and
with the current surge of
interest in this kind of music
has grown to serve on a world
wide mail order basis. Aeon's
roster includes the works of
several artists working in the
field of "Modern Classical"
electronic and electro-acoustic
composition, including tapes
and LPs by long time John
Cage collaborator David
Tudor, San Francisco's John
Di Stefano and our own
Canadian Electronic Ensemble. There is a healthy
sampling of French and Belgian groups as well, reflecting
those countries' contributions
to avant guarde electronics
and tape composition. Most
groups that Aeon represents,
however, are producing music
without   the   help   of   formal
training and with little regard
for formal structure, notation
and so on, the word "formal"
being used very loosely here.
This is evident in the large
number of "Industrial" music
releases Aeon carries. Among
them are LPs and tapes by
Port Huron, Michigan's Hunting Lodge, Italy's Maurizio
Bianchi (be warned!), and
Wales' Lustmord, all of them
utilizing harsh metallic
rhythms and grating electronics. Aeon also gives some very
interesting improvised music
some exposure as well. Of
particular interest here is the
Fred Frith/Bob Istertag/Phil
Minton   LP: TheVoiceof
America, which features Frith
on a variety of homemade
instruments, radios, tapes,
and, of course, his fascinating excursions on guitar (or
some permutations thereof!).
Chances are that most CITR
listeners are only familiar with
one Aeon product, that of Port
Said. Named after an Egyptian port town and, incidentally, a compilation album of
Egyptian folk music issued in
the late '50s, Stefan Tischler
and Keith Walsh have managed to produce some of the
most beautiful and exotic
sounding electronic/percussion music to be heard anywhere. Although their sound
is reminiscent of Cluster and
Eno, it is made all the more
astonishing due to the fact
that they hail from a particularly vile part of New York
City. Available from Aeon are
their first two tapes, Through
Veils and Eve of Departure ,
the former featuring ex-
Material guitarist Cliff
Cultreri and the latter being
the consolidation of their own
style. Eve of Departure is
recommended over the first,
though both are excellent, the
deciding factor here being my
personal taste. Their newest
release, out at the end of
November, is called Crossings
and is well worth the price of
admission. Just new on
CITR's playlist is a song
recorded partly in Vancouver
in July, when Stefan was in
town for a visit. That track,
called Countdown to Mid'
night, will be released on
Holland's Ding Dong Disc
label. More information about
that and other Port Said
projects can be obtained by
writing them.
New Federalism. That's the
name given to a superb Aeon
compilation of American
underground music. Beginning with the pledge of allegiance, this tape quickly develops into an aural exploration
of mind control. Featuring
tracks from several of Aeon's
U.S. contingents, the New
Federalism cassette is of the
highest quality and provides
an excellent variety of experimental electronics. John Di
Stefano, Nick Didskovsky and
C.W. Vrtacek provide the
most coherent compositions,
while the rest is mainly in the
industrial vein with some very
clever tape manipulation and
relentless electronic rhythms,
with smatterings of percussion and vocals. Included are
cuts by Hunting Lodge, Deviation Social, and a wonderful
piece of madness from Seattle
based group Enstruction
called Do the Rotation. All
copies are on chrome tape,
and it's well worth the investment.
Other outstanding releases
are Musik Unter Tage by
German synthesist Asmus
Tietchens and Third Human
Attempt by Belgium's Human
Flesh. Tietchens normally records for Sky Records in
Germany but recently has
concentrated his efforts on
cassette releases via the various independents. This tape
is a very dark and menacing
soundtrack to whatever your
worst fears of the night happen to be. Highly recommended for a 4 a.m. listening
spree! Human Flesh is virtually the sole project of Alain
Neffe, who also runs the
Insane Music Service in
Belgium. Third Human Attempt is the perfect example
of how to produce a very
innovative tape with precious
little instrumentation. With
some clever electronic treatments of the female voice,
Alain has come up with some
very eerie and trance inducing
pieces of music. Apart from
voice, Alain utilizes sax,
synth, pianet, and does a good
job of minimizing the tedium
of a rhythm box. For the
remaining minute or two following each side, there are
recorded snippets of Belgian
radio stations, none of which
seem to approach anything
resembling alternative radio,
but it's better than tape hiss!
All Belgian cassettes from
Aeon are on chrome tape and
are of good quality.
Now for a jump across the
Atlantic to Whitstable, County
Kent, in England. From this
small seaside town near the
mouth of the Thames comes
Gary Levermore, the man
behind Third Mind Tapes.
Gary is best known for his five
volume cassette compilation
cal led Rising from the Red
Sand, probably the most comprehensive collection of,
mainly, U.K. "fringe" groups
to be found anywhere. Most of
the artists here are working in
a kind of musical no man's
land. By that statement I
mean that they are not formally trained musicians and are
not considered "composers"
in the academic sense of the
word. Their music is, however, sufficiently removed from
the pop/punk/dance scene,
from a purely aesthetic point
of view,' to warrant the label of
new music. There are the
tortured electronics of Lustmord, Test Dept., and the
Nocturnal Emissions, the
sequencer-laden rhythms of
Ian Boddy, the amusing tape
collage of Nurse with Wound
and the industrial ambience of
Metamorphosis and the Aeolian String Ensemble. Other
contributors include Chris and
Cosey, Radio Free Europe,
Colin Potter, Conrad Schnitz-
ler, The Legendary Pink Dots,
Portion Control and Human
Flesh. Something for everybody with an open mind.
These tapes come highly recommended and, as with all
compilations when there's a
track you don't like, there's
always the FAST FORWARD
button!
Gary is also responsible for
several excellent releases by
individual groups.. He's just
had ex-Throbbing Gristle
member Chris Carter's tape
The Space Between (originally
released on T.G.'s own label,
but with poor level settings)
re-mastered to a higher over
all quality. The tape is a full
C-90 and is much more accessible than most of his work
with T.G. There is actually an
emphasis on melody! Chris
makes a lot of his own
synthesizer gadgetry, so there
is a very distinctive personal
style throughout. A highly
recommended purchase. Also
worth looking into is Basilisk
a Third Mind release by The
Legendary Pink Dots. If you
liked Syd Barrett, you'll want
to hear this group immediately! With a little wit, some
haunting melodies, and a
clever hand at tape manipulation, The Legendary Pink Dots
manage to conjure up images
of a returned-to-earth Barrett,
charming, in a twisted sort of
way. Gary is also planning an
LP with the Dots that should
be out in a couple of months.
Also in the works are LPs by
Konstruktivits, just ouU, Attrition, Nurse with Wound
(should be fun!) and an as yet
unspecified compilation. The
current catalogue includes
cassettes by Portion Control,
Attrition and a compilation of
European synthesists called
Visions. The Chris Carter and
L.P.D. tapes are $7.50, including postage. ALL FIVE volumes of Rising from the Red
Sands will cost you $27.00,
incuding postage. These
prices valid, assuming that
the pound is at two dollars
even. At the moment, it is
worth about $1.80, so you will
Save even more if you order
before economic recovery!
Somebody always profits from

NOMEANSNO    Mama
A few years ago two brothers, John and Rob Wright, put
out a 45 entitles Look! Here
Come the Wormies, under the
name of NOMEANSNO. This
was the beginning of a new
sound. From that date until
last June, Victoria wondered
whether these two guys with a
nifty single would ever get
their shit together; and when
they did, they picked one hell
of a time to do it. It was an
afternoon in early June, just
like every other at the cafe;
people from the local scene
were chatting over coffee
when a guy pogoed in waving
a copy of MAMA. Only
NOMEANSNO had heard this
album, yet every person in the
cafe knew it would be good;
their question was how good.
So they played it and realized
that finally NOMEANSNO
had shown their steel.
Imagine Shithead and Useless leaving their bands to
record something  D.O.A.  or
the Subhumans could not
touch with a 10-foot pole and
was just as accessible and
exciting as both bands ever
had. Then watch these two
pick their asses for the longest
time and come up with a
brilliant-LP that left only one
thing to be desired: MORE.
Does this help any? Here's
MAMA for beginners.
I said John and Rob were
two neat guys, so it would go
without saying that
NOMEANSNO would combine power and passion in
radical lyrics describing evil,
pain, repression and a yearning for love with musical
energy that throws the lyrics
right into your own self.
NOMEANSNO is not simply a
band, it is a new picture of
you. This is not easy listening
music. If you read the lyrics,
you want to hear the music; if
you hear the music, you want
to find the lyric sheet. We
can't pretend that the ideas in
it are immediately evident.
When you hear the music, you
want to know more; and to
know more, you must read the
lyrics and think.
By now, many of you should
want to do vile things to
Michael Jackson records in
order to get it. BUT. There are
only 20 copies of MAMA
available in Vancouver. Your
best bets are postal blackmail,
a trip to Victoria, or that
request line to CITR
(228-CITR). NOMEANSNO
must be heard.

XTC
Mummer (polygram)
Slip XTC's new LP
Mummer into the jacket of
their last double-LP, English
Settlement, and see if somebody notices.
It could be that nobody will.
Not to imply a criticism of
the LP; English Settlement
was, after all, a pretty good
album. It's just that the two
albums really do sound a lot
alike. Both are less bouncy,
less rushed, less juvenilethan
Go 2/Drums and Wires/Black
Sea, the second, third and
fourth LPs, which form their
successful singles-oriented
trilogy. Both have their share
of acoustic guitars, tambourines, and lyrics evocative of
pastoral English life before
this century (the word "mummer" means a merrymaking
pantomimist in disguise, traditionally part of certain Olde
English stage performances or
festivals).
Of course, it is true that
there are differences between
the two albums. Mummer's
pacing and arrangements
have greater variety, and
there is evidence of a more
experimental approach. Particularly noticeable is the prominence and expansion of the
instrumentals; they have become more than props for pop
songs. There's a new jazz
flavor to several tracks, most
conspicuously on the song In
Loving Memory of a Name,
and it's a style that works well
with XTC's own.
page 4
Sadly, XTC's lyrics have not
caught up with their musical
progress. Fast cars and late
night parties are juxtaposed
awkwardly with high-standing
corn and tragical wonderlands. They reach the height
of banality with Beating of
Hearts ("For a heart without
love is a song with no words
...") I liked their cynical and
sarcastic lyrical style better -
and that doesn't say much.
Pop/Art has been as good a
term as any to describe XTC's
musical leanings, but it seems
that their reliance on Pop- as
opposed to Art-songs has
been diminishing. Some
would say that is a sign of
progress, a sophistication of
the group's talents. On the
other hand, it could be argued
that it was their pop songs
which gave the group their
original success and which
were, not incidentally, classics
of sorts. This is where opinion
will be divided with respect to
the artier Mummer, whether
XTC have backed away from
pop singles success or whether that kind of success has
simply eluded them.
No, Mummer is not earth-
shattering. And yes, Mummer
does sound suspiciously like
English Settlement's third LP.
Still, Partridge's Mob have
proven once again that they
are still in good -very good-
form after all these years.
Mummer marks a step forward, however small, for a
band of considerable talent
and tenacity.
--Robin Razzell
The kid eyed the record
racks eagerly, a sweat-stained
$20 bill clutched tightly in his
trembling fist. It was the end
of the month, and he had
actually managed to get most
of his customers to pay for
their papers on time, and so
now he stood ready to make
his monthly vinyl purchase.
This month he had decided
that it should be an import.
True, import records cost
more, but the university station he listened to late at night
seemed to be playing a lot of
new import singles by his
favorite bands recently. He
had made the long trip on the
bus from the other side of
town to the one import store
he knew would have the
biggest selection, so now it
was only a matter of trying to
decide how to get the best
value for his $20.
The clerk behind the counter eyed the kid sceptically,
decided he wasn't worth bothering with, and went back to
reading his copy of "Face."
"Uh, excuse me," the kid
nervously tried to gain the
clerk's attention. "Do you
have the new PIL single?"
"Sold out. Have more next
week," the clerk mumbled
without looking up.
"Urn ... what about the new
Siouxsie?" the kid stammered
politely.
HUNTERS AND
COLLECTORS
The Fireman's Curse
"Sold last one an hour
ago.'' The clerk gazed intently
at his magazine.
"Oh." The kid gazed dejectedly about the store, took a
deep breath and quickly asked, "Do you have any copies
of the new Echo & the
Bunnymen single?"
"Nope."
The kid turned away thinking that perhaps this trip had
been for nothing when suddenly the clerk called him
back.
'Hey kid. Do you like, I
mean really like, Echo & the
Bunnymen?"
"They're my favorite
band," the kid replied
timidly.
"Well," said the clerk as he
brushed a lock of green hair
out of his eyes, "I've got just
the thing for you. This new
album came in a few weeks
ago. Band's called Hunters
and Collectors, and they
sound just like Echo."
"Well ..." the kid hesitated as he gazed at the awkward cover and read the title,
The Fireman's Curse. "I don't
know."
"Trust me, kid, these guys
are great." The clerk pulled
another copy of the album out
of an over-flowing rack and
placed it on the turntable.
"Listen to the single here,
Judas Sheep; it's just like
Echo meets Shriekback with a
few horns added."
The kid looked sceptical.
Somewhere in the back of his
mind he remembered an old
slogan for Coca Cola: It's the
Real Thing. Something about
this record didn't match that
slogan.
'It's a really popular
album," the clerk smiled
slyly; and the kid wondered
why there were so many
copies left if it was so popular.
The kid looked over for the
clerk and saw him drop a copy
of The Fireman's Curse in a
bag for another customer,
then shortchange the customer and hurry him out the door,
smiling cruelly as he did so.
The "Real Thing" slogan
flashed brightly in the kid's
head.
The clerk turned back to the
kid, who squeezed his $20 bill
tightly and fled past him out
the door, the repetitious
strains of Drinking Bomb fading behind him. Outside he
breathed the cool air deeply,
slightly disappointed at not
getting a record but otherwise
glad to have saved his money.

UB40  Labour of Love
(Polygram)
This LP has been rather
harshly received by a lot of
UB40 fans as well as the music
media. The  band   is   in-
stantjy expected to keep popping out sensational, new
reggae hits again and again.
These same people have to
realize that UB40 did not set
out to do that on this record.
Rather, the record is a form of
homage to their reggae roots,
and the songs on it are cover
tunes of the reggae hits on
which they grew up with.
Labor of Love is a tribute to
their inspirers, whom they
sentimentally and admirably
respect. All of the songs come
from the 1969-1972 era and
from various artists.
So what is the record like?
Well,  Side  1   kicks  off  with
Cherry Oh Baby, first done by
Eric Donaldson, and the
UBies do it a lot tighter than
another well-known group
which also covered it - the
Rolling Stones, on Black and
Blue. The song is more of a
' pop number than reggae, and
it almost sounds like something the Jackson Five or the
Archies would have made a
killing on. Next up is the
Wailers' old hit Keep on
Moving, and the UBies sure
don't put it to any shame.x
Unique percussion sounds
courtesy of Lindrums, which
were experimented with on
the record. Well done, UB40.
Please Don't Make Me Cry
follows: it's a vintage Winston
(Groovey) Tucker tune and a
soft, mellow number with
touching lyrics (Sob, Sob).
The soulful saxophone of
Brian Tucker wails away in the
distance, adding a sense of
feeling. The last cut on Side 1
is Johnny Too Bad, courtesy of
the Slickees, and is one of the
highlights  on  the  platter.
Side 2 features Red, Red
Wine, which is their biggest
UK success in quite a while.
Neil Diamond, of all people,
wrote the tune, and it was also
a soul hit for Jimmy James
and the Vagabonds and a
reggae favorite when Tony
Tribe covered it. UB40's version can be construed as a
blend of reggae and soul,
done in typically fine UBie
musicianship. There's nothing
mindblowing about their version of Tiger's Guilty, which
follows Red, Red, Wine. As
Side 2 of the disc spins on, the
listener will come across She
Caught the Train, which was
initially done by Ray Martell.
It falls into the same category
as the song right before it:
mediocre, and leads you into
Version Girl. This one is a Boy
Friday number, and UB40's
version is quite pleasant, complete with the pleading vocals
of Ali and Robin Campbell.
Last song on the plastic is
Jimmy Cliff's Many Rivers to
Cross. The band uses eloquent female backup singers
on this one, and the song is
similar to almost every song
selected for this disc: soulful
and mellow.
My conclusions about the
LP? I quite enjoyed listening
to it, and I can understand
how these songs can very well
be sentimental favorites for
the UBies or perhaps any
veteran reggae aficionado, as
they are quite appealing.

T-BONE BURJNETT
Proof Through the Night (WEA)
American music is vital
once again. R.E.M., Violent
Femmes and Rank and File
reveal the emotionally
vacuous bands of the British
pop parade for what they are:
shallow, trite, dull. In their
apparent rush for the future
they ignore the roots of social
and musical tradition. The
Americans, on the other hand,
don't reject those roots out of
hand. Parts of the past are
positive, and so they move
forward with an eye on the
past.
T-Bone Burnett is part of
that past. He is a contemporary of Dylan, Townshend,
Ronnie Lane, Ry Cooder and
Richard Thompson. He played
in the Rolling Thunder Revue.
He played with a most eccentric L.A. band, The Alpha
Band, whose records were
spoiled by their overt religious
tones. T-Bone is partly to
blame for Dylan's brief foray
into Christianity. BUT WAIT.
THIS IS NOT THE T-BONE
BURNETT I KNOW.
Rather, T-Bone Burnett has
made two wonderful records,
Truth Decay and now Proof
Through the Night. These
records are NOT religious.
Yes, they may comment on
the moral decay of America,
but they don't proselytize ...
T-Bone leaves it to the listener
to draw a meaning. T-Bone's
records are wonderful because
of that and other things.
T-Bone is a consummate
lyricist. He tells stories about
women from his past,  about
his generation, about Plastic
America --Hugh and Walt
(Disney and Hefner, that is)—
about humans (ordinary and
insecure) and about being a
(Duran Duran) Hula Hoop.
T-B-me Burnett's sound is
country ana rockabilly and
Byrdsish. Slide guitars,
acoustic guitars and violins
compliment a solid electric
sound. Think of Townshend
and Lane's Rough Mix, think
of Ry Cooder, and think of
Richard Thompson. T-Bone's
voice, in fact, mixes
Thompson's gruff depth with
Dylan's nasal notes.
Together these elements
make: a simple, uncomplicated sound. It has energy. It
says something (if that's what
you want). It is great to listen
to without thought for that
EVIL social comment. This is
the sound of a man who knows
this is HIS sound and so he
invests his emotions in the
songs and their recordings.
And so we get traditional
American music which refers
quite properly to the present.
From this music the new
American bands can confidently draw and create
something new, exciting and
stimulating. But this will not
invalidate T-Bone Burnett and
his records, Truth Decay and
Proof Through the Night.
Though they are part of the
past (happening today), they
will not date easily. Okay.
ONLY ? MORE SHOPPING DAYS 'TIL X-MAS!
And We Don't Even Know What You Want
CITR needs your Christmas list; tell us what your three
favorite songs of all time are. That's not an easy one at the
best of times, but we only want your three fave raves, all
three fave raves, and nothing but your three fave raves. (See!
At last, a SIMPLE form to fill in!) Your choices will then be
allotted points: 1 for the third fave, 2 for the second fave and
three points for the favorite fave. All the points from all the
replies will then be tallied, and a list of the top 50 will be
compiled. You can hear them, from #50 up to #1, starting at
6:30 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
This form will be repeated in December's Discorder and
will also be available at the regular key places around town,
y know. Zulu, Odyssey, Cabbages & Kinx, etc. Drop your
form into the drop-off boxes at these places or mail it to: CITR

REVIEW: The New Vancouver Art Gallery
Wednesday,  October 12,
marked the preview opening
of the "New Vancouver Art
Gallery."     The     gallery's
members, local artists, dignitaries,   contributors   and   the
press formed the main body at
this social event. Everyone
was in their Sunday best, local
artists were in their most
bizarre threads, and, with
wine in hand, all had a
pleasant time socializing
among some of Canada and
Europe's finest works of art.
The art itself was hard to
appreciate, as the gallery was
jammed. This was, as I have
said, a social event, not a
cultural experience. The display, which opened to the
public October 15 and continues until December 31, is the
perfect opening show for the
"new" gallery, and I will
review this display when the
gallery is less populated. The
opening show features 27
Masterworks from the Collection of the National Gallery,
Vancouver: Art and Artists
1931-1983 (which is the largest exhibition mounted by the
VAG), "Film," which features local experimental film
between 1966-1983, and 85
Emily Carr paintings and
sketches in the new Emily
Carr gallery. There is also a
new children's gallery, with a
show of paintings from the
permanent collection. "All
this in our new gallery?" you
ask. That's right. The new
gallery has about four times
the previous gallery's floor
space   and   features   a   new
restaurant, administration
wing, expanded gift shop and
fine arts library.
The display space in* the
main building is very handsome indeed. It certainly
keeps pace with other gallery
refurbishings in England and
Germany which sport the
same stripped classical structures painted with whites and
greys and outfitted with
simple, moveable wall planes
and lighting. The lighting
system installed in the gallery
is excellent. It is honest for
artificial lighting (not too blue,
yet bright) and provides little
or no glare on even monumental-sized works. The
tracks for the lighting have
been recessed into the ceiling,
which shows the care and
expense that were paid in the
detailing of our new gallery.
Another nice touch is that the
corners of the major floors
have what I will call "Meditation stops." These are furnished with Le Corbusier
chairs, a table and a window
and are a good solution to
what might otherwise have
been wasted space.
The floors are laid out in a
fashion that provides an easy
circular progression through
the gallery space. This layout
compared to some of the
labyrinths of the large European galleries is a point worth
praising. This circular progression is formed around the
gallery's most breathtaking
feature: the central rotunda.
This offers us the only natural
light  in the  main  floorspace
and a very nicely scaled new
staircase. It is a beautifu
centrepiece.
All is not perfect, though.
On the first floor there is a
beautifully finished hardwood
floor. Unfortunately, this
surface, coupled with the rattan chairs and gallery trek-
kers, results in an extremely
noisy atmosphere which detracts from enjoying the art.
The second floor is covered
with a nice grey carpet, which
contrasts with the noisy first
floor and the cold, tacky concrete third floor. I hope to see
carpet on the third floor soon.
Outside there are the typical
cascading and treacherous
Arthur Erickson stairs that
will soon begin claiming their
victims. There are a few other
hairs I could split, but I don't
want to take anything away
from this beautiful building.
This is the perfect building in
the perfect location for the
VAG.
With the improved security
and a climate control system
we should see some of the
highly publicized touring collections in Vancouver. With
these tours and its new central
location, many of the people
who were previously alienated
by the old gallery will be
coming to see what is happening in the New Vancouver Art
Gallery.
