Discorder is That Magazine from CiTR 101.9 Fm.
It's published monthly by the Student Radio Society
of the University of British Columbia. It's printed
in Surrey, Canada. Discorder Magazine prints what
it wants to, but pledges to (try and) put the CiTR On
The Dial program guide and Spin List record chart in
every issue. We also vow to circulate 17,500 copies
to over 200 locations by the first of each month.
Twelve-month subscriptions are $12 in Canada,
$12(US) in the States, $20 elsewhere. Make money
orders or certified cheques payable to Discorder Magazine. All written, drawn or photographed contributions are welcome. But don't expect to get anything
back. To pick up or to improve your reception of
CiTR's 49-watt stereo signal, just put a little effort
into it. Stick a clothes hanger or some other kind of
antenna to your receiver. Better yet, if you're a subscriber to Rogers, Shaw or Delta Cable, turn us on at
101.9 cable fm. Office hours for CiTR, Discorder
and the CiTR Mobile Sound Rental are Mon-Fri,
10am-4pm. Please call then. But call 228-3017. For
the News/Sports line, call 224-4320. To talk to the
DJ, call 228-2487 or 228-CiTR.

RATMAN'S RETORT
Dear Fuckhead:
I am writing in respect to Bill Baker's interview
of me published in your December issue of DISCORDER. Are you guys hard up, or what? Not only does
that before mentioned interview make me look like a
real dirthead, especially because I would not participate in it, but it has no entertainment value as reading
material. You should have seen the interviewer - he
was wearing a baseball hat, which I hate, and since I
am a firm believer in judging people because of what
they wear, I really didn't have time for the guy. Also,
as you can tell, there were more interesting people in
room. I am also angry because Mr. Baker (and I use
the term lightly) purposely edited out my telling of
where my band, Girls! Girls! Girls! was playing just
because he was steamed at being ignored by a member of Vancouver's alternative scene. The whole purpose of the interview was to promote the concert on
New Year's at (nightclub, time, address) in the first
place. The point of my letter though is to ask why you
printed such a bogus article in the first place? When
I was editor of the school paper in Richmond we had
more entertaining articles, for fucks sakes. I would've
rather read a cereal box than that interview for excitement. Why don't you guys get some writers?
Sincerly,
Mark Dumaln (aka Ratman)
We're always looking for "GOOD" writers.
Put your money where your mouth is.

HOW FAR IS FAR?
A loyal listener on a rural hilltop, 128 km
from the CITR transmitter on Point Grey
has been confirmed as one of the winners of
the How Far is Far, How Near is Near - Pick Up
CiTR and Win contest.
Mike Pentz of Rosedale, BC will have a radio
program broadcast from his home as one of his
rewards for receiving the 49 watt signal without the
aid of cable.
Mike will also receive a one-year membership
to (possibly) the world's finest radio station, a twelvemonth free subscription to Discorder (that magazine
from CiTR), a full set of CiTR buttons (in all 20
flavors, more or less) and dinner for two at Taf's Cafe
on Granville Mall.
The contest was initiated by the station as part of
its campaign to promote the increase in broadcast
power.
Honorable Mention
David Eidse, who hears rap music on CiTR
loud and clear from the ghetto blaster in his Nanaimo
bedroom, and Mike Cherry of Ganges on Saltspring
Island both receive honorable mention for being
second and third closest. They also have our sympathies as they have a good chance of having their
reception of 101.9 fm overtaken by Victoria's campus station, CFUV, when that station goes high
power sometime this month. CiTR station manager,
Harry Hertscheg, regrets the loss of such loyal listeners through no fault of their own and promises the
station will do everything in its power to "slip our
signal over to them."
How Near is Near?
There has still been no confirmed winner in the
How Near portion of the contest, but we were close.
Holly Hendrigan, a UBC student living at Gage
claimed she couldn't get CiTR, even though her
apartment is directly below the transmitter. But when
Harry called to check her entry, her roommate said,
"Oh, I thought she could get it."
"I really don't believe it's possible," says Harry,
"with all the entries we've gotten from places like
Point Roberts, the Gulf Islands and all through the
Fraser Valley, how could someone directly under our
transmitter not pick us up? All it takes is a little
effort." But he's willing to give her a second chance.
"We dare anyone to step forward and prove us wrong.
Invite us over for dinner, or even just a cup of coffee.
If your radio can survive our rigorous antenna test:
coat hangers, speaker wire, beer cans, tin foil, the
works, and still not receive CiTR, we'll concede
defeat and award the prize. This offer stands until we
switch to High Power." Asked when that will be,
Harry would only say, "You'll be able to pick up
CiTR by accident by Christmas."

Three months ago while researching ways to improve my liver
condition I hit on what seemed
to be a good idea: "Why not be a
Shindig judge this term?" The
bi-annual battle of the bands sponsored by CiTR
was about to start and judges were needed. A
Shindig judge doesn't get paid but he gets free
beer while performing his/her judgely duties at
the Railway Club, one ofthemostcivilisedbars
in this city.
The official idea is that new local bands
(they must have at least changed their name if
they entered last year) are introduced to the
people who want to hear them. But being cynical, I always thought that everything in this
world is fixed: elections, boxing matches, the
Grey Cup, Shindig...At least, fixed or not, I
could drink, socialise, be opinionated and maybe

even play God. Can't think of anything better to
do on rainy winter nights (at least while standing
up).
So on September 12th I was ready for the
first contest. The drive from my place to the
Railway Club only takes about five minutes,
which gives me time to drink three of the beers
I keep under the front seat for emergencies
(being held up at lights, putting up with housewives driving their Volvo's erratically, trying
not to rear-end people who have "Baby on
Board" signs, etc.).
The first step into Shindig for all participants—musicians, maintenance drinking judges
and various other pilgrims—is to get past Shane
the doorman's caustic wit. Not an easy task. I
suspect he was a maitre d' in a fancy French restaurant in aprevious life. A sarcastic philosopher-type who has an invaluable knowledge of
music. Once in, I was promptly informed that
judges should arrive before the first band starts
and not ask questions like "So, is this the first or
second band?"
1 learned a lot in the course of the next
twelve weeks: The best place to sit is in the
back so as not to be unduly influenced by
gimmicks like stage presence, and one can
get a drink much faster at the back bar. One
should never say loudly, "I'm sure the next band
will be better because I'll have had more to drink
by then." I even managed to learn a lot about
local music, which covered the ground from the
incredibly lame —who will remain nameless—
to the totally righteous —Excited First
Daughter, Video Bar-B-Q, Benzyne Jag,
Picasso Set, Idiot Savant and Brides of Zamfir
(especially the singer). Some bands even managed to be barred from the process (Damage
C'est Damage), which is surely a claim to fame.
The all-time best Vancouver band BTO ('73-
'74 model) was also barred from Shindig.
Judges are also asked to stay on the premises until the end of the last band's set, even if the
discovery of a large animal's head in one's bed
that morning has already convinced one that the
first band is really the best and deserving of
one's vote.
Bands are graded on stage presence (15
SHINDIG
JUDGE
points). Items like pointy shoes, ponytails and
black clothing don't help; psychotic stares,
miniskirts (on men) and dayglo are all worth
bonus points.
Musical ability can be worth 15 points as
well. Unusual instruments, playing with missing strings with no audible difference, horn
sections, and electric saws are all good for full
marks.
Fifteen more points can be scored for songwriting. The biggest no-no is to sound anything
like U-2 or REM. However, ripped-off Zeppelin solos are quite acceptable.
The last five points are given for audience
response, which is determined by how many
friends and relations the band has conned into
coming to the Railway. The first band to play is
at an advantage in this category since their
friends only have to show up for an hour or so
and can then proceed home to watch Morton
Downey Jr. Each Monday night the band with
the most points wins. Very scientific. Unless of
course bribing or threats have already predetermined a winner.
These are of course only a maintenance
drinker's attitudes and opinions. The other four
or five judges were all tee-totalling, church-
going, all-around nice upstanding pillars of the
community, so my votes probably had no effect
on the whole thing. Well, gotta go to the liquor
store now and pick up a crate of Columbia Extra.

t used to be a joke between them. A warm joke. An affectionate joke. But a joke. He'd put
his hand on her stomach and say—I feel him kicking! They laughed. And sometimes they 'd
play What? What if I got pregnant by accident? What name do you like for girls? What would
your mother say? It's easy to imagine; you can say anything you want. You can make it all
disappear whenever.
Mirrors. She passes them by, afraid to look, to pause, to look at herself. Her face brick, her
stomach desert. No, not desert anymore. But flat? Yes, flat. Very, very flat. A secret. But moving.
This way of sleepwalking all the time—somnambulist life so painless effortless allempty
allconsuming a fat vacuum. Details go unnoticed. Flowers, the curve of a chair, a shadow, the smells
of a kitchen. His face? Dissolved. Everything. Photographic memory. Print only. Rows and rows
of print: categories organised to be filed. Away.
She sits in the bathroom thinking about not thinking. If there was a way ...She would be a terrible
mother. He would be a wonderful father. They—
He has been here forever. She knows his every habit/thought/gesture. And yet. She is startled
to realise she doesn't know him at all. Who is this stranger sleeping beside her? She doesn't trust
him.
The apartment is a cage. Once it was a refuge/palace/cloud. Once she lay on the bed with him,
looking up through the windowpane at the pale pale bluewhite sky and that was everything. She
paces now, stifled, the radiators will not turn off steam on the windows. She must get out out into
the streets: impersonal and open.
They move through rooms. Hesays things, shereplies. She wants to scream but clamps her jaws
together. He talks about TRUE LOVE TRUST THEIR FUTURE. Just the way he always did/does/
will, he is the same, the very same, the earth rotates, all things continue. A constant innocent. Blind.
Unknowing. Happy? She says yes yes yes but can't smile.
It is not a question of knowing or not knowing. She knows. It is knowing what to do next.
The bus to the university skirts a dense dark forest. There is a bus stop, beside the forest. What
is it doing there? She has never seen anyone get off at this stop and no one gets on either. There's
only forest, moist and mysterious.
She begins to skip classes. The stifling rooms and the endless pages, the endless talk talk talk
pushing her, pushing.
She watches him at his desk surrounded by books. A student—devouring/appropriating all
history, vomiting it back onto page after white page. No privacy. She is nauseous. She will not be
a student anymore—she refuses to be part of this process of false history. She will not be a fact for
him, automatically incorporated without question/examination/permission, captured into print and
picture. No photographs/mirrors/handwriting. She is clear and transitory. She will leave no trace.
This realisation that she is entirely alone in the world no w. Cut off from him through this secret.
Silent. The way a new being makes her completely and truly alone: 1 plus 1 equals 1. Internal
arithmetic.
There is a sudden urgency. An urgency to kiss. At all times she is struck with this desire. But
not him. Anyone but him. A stranger. A man she will meet on the street or in a cafe bus bridge beach
gallery departmentstore and perhaps they will begin a conversation. Perhaps not. Perhaps they will
only look at each other.
On the street sometimes she sees people she knows but pretends she hasn't. Such encounters are tiresome—questions and explanations, series of untruths/halftruths/on-
cetruths. At some time Smalltalk became too difficult. She crosses the street,
avoiding. Maybe another day. She wishes a stranger would approach her, bring
smiles and conversation without demands, without expectations, without polite malice, without the past. Tell her stories. Make her laugh. Comfort from strangers? What does she
expect—her face is brick.
The possibility of vanishing altogether. It is possible but it takes trust She imagines walking
into the middle of the city and disappearing. Into a stranger's life. For good.
JANUARY 1989   9 She walks all the way to the water, smelling salt and oil. Traintracks. Lines and angles: hard,
straight.
She goes to matinees, sitting alone in the dark, wondering if a man will sit beside her, their arms
touching accidentally on the armrest, the jolt the retreat the pause the return the smile the first word.
Sometimes she sleeps, waking at the end of the film when the lights come on. No man, no jolt. Only
hunger.
In the street: all the boys and men. She glances furtively this way and that. Her stomach growls.
She stares at the counterboy. He looks away, shy. Slim and large-eyed. She feels impatient/
explosive, tears the crusts from her sandwich. Asks for water.
You have a beautiful voice, a man says. A revelation, a slap from the stool beside her. A voice—
something so close and personal yet thrown out into all those careless faces day after day. A voice—
something not thought about but taken as given, part of the mysterious inner workings of mind and
body. An awareness of such magic.
Water. Simple clear good. She drinks glasses and glasses. Before a given, now a delicacy.
Outside melding with inside. Fluid. She smiles at him over the rim.
What do you do?
Nothing.
I'm an actor. Ha ha!
An actor. No single past but many. No personal traces, no history.
She bites him all over ravenously without tasting. Afterwards, they lie still. She doesn't smoke.
I'm an actor ha ha ha. He does impressions. James Cagney. Mae West. Clark Gable. Robot parrot,
regurgitating identities on cue. She is nauseous. Tricked! Actor worse than scholar—vacuums, vehicles, taking credit for things belonging to others. Go-betweens, empty in themselves.
An awareness of light. The patterns of light on this wooden floor—illumination: bright/heat/
wonder. Not a stranger's life, her own! He is in the shower, singing Al Jolson. She dresses quickly,
silent. She will leave no trace. Her stomach is warm.
It is so bright today—the sunshine pointed and brittle. Her eyes. She cannot see in some
directions. It is still cold. Counting: two three four five six seven eight nine. December. Late
December.
So many lives living things moving; she does not know them, she has not sought them out. This
being inside of her, she does not know its life either. She never thought to think.
She takes the bus that goes to the university. She pulls the cord and gets out—the only one. She
waits until the bus is out of sight and then slowly slowly she steps off the road and down the
embankment to where the forest begins.

director of Andy Warhol films such as Trash
and Heat. He has since made a mark of his own
with films like Forty Deuce and Mixed Blood.
Discorder talked to him when he was in town
during the Vancouver Film Festival for the
opening of his new film Spike of Bensonhurst.
Discorder: People say that you have an aesthetic. A unique aesthetic that's quite different
from Warhol. I'm wondering if you have some
sort of view on that.
Morrissey: No, that was something in the
program notes. I don't know who writes such
things. I'm not sure what my own aesthetic is or
what Andy's was suppose to be. I can't answer
that question. It's not clear in my own head,
what that's all about. It's too complicated. It's
hard to give a whole history on what these
experiments were with Andy and what we were
doing and how they were connected. They all
make some vague sense in my mind but its a
whole long story. They were experiments and
they led me in my mind to rely on humour and
personality to tell a story. Andy, I don't know if
he had any aesthetics. He didn't want to tell a
story and he didn't think you needed to tell a
story that had direction and I understood what he
was getting at. I helped him try to make films
that weren't stories but weren't directed. They
were interesting but they were experiments.
Experiments are something that are interesting,
they might help you later on in some other area
but they don't usually lead to anything that's
permanent.
I think some things you could do over and
over. I think there's nothing new under the sun
and a good story is a good story and that's all that
will ever happen in fiction. And movies are
fiction. A good story is good because the characters are good. I don't think there was any big
aesthetic there. I think it was just common sense.
D: Did you manage the Velvet Underground?
M: Yes, I discovered them and thought I could
make a few bucks off of them. ButI realized they
were prima donnas. They were an attempt to
make money because we couldn't make money
with the mov ies and the experiments. We thought
maybe we could add all this footage projected
behind them and make it look 'hopped up,'
Make some money because everybody was
making money with records then, and now more
than ever. It was an attempt to make money with
a musical act.
D: How long did that last?
M: Oh, it must have been a year or two. As soon
as they realized they could make money they decided not to work anymore. So you can imagine
how thrilled I was with that. I think they just
wanted to keep all the money themselves. Mr.
Reed wanted it all which he wound up getting.
They weren't the great fun people. Well, what
rock 'n' roll group is? Anyway, they had some
cute songs.
Nico was a great asset to my mind. They
were jealous of her, there was a lot of pettiness
involved. She had a genuine mystery and a
beauty and a kind of uniqueness and distinction
that set her apart from everybody, else; that
incredibly deep voice. But she got perverse too,
and went on a wave of self destruction for years.
She started to come back and then she died of
this accident; sort of a mild stroke. She wasn't
accepted in three different hospitals in this Island of Spain. She died in a Red Cross because
nobody would (take her in). She didn't have
medical insurance.
D: Somepeople say it was Warhol's idea to add
Nico.
M: It wasn't Andy's idea, it was ray idea. It was
my idea to try and make money. I thought they
would be enormously enhanced Instead of this
sorta dreary drug sound music they had. To
counter-act that with traditional femme-fatale
beauty. To get away from* the ugly drug addict
look of all the other musical acts of the time. She
walked into the factory studio around the same
time I discovered them. They really needed a
singer who had some personality because all we
had was Lou Reed. He (Lou) didn't like that.
Morrissey talks about actors, acting and directing referring to characters in some of his films.
Spike is the ambitious Italian kid in Spike of
Bensonhurst. Diago is the rough guy in Mixed
Blood. Udo Kier appears in both Frankenstein
and Dracula.
D: Spike, he was really goofy?
P: Ya, I think so.
D: Did you direct him like that.
M: It was written like that. He knew what to
play. He played a kinda insensitive strong-headed
goof. I think he had an innocence about him. It
12   DISCORDER was ambivalent. He wasn' t a monster but he was
certainly no hero.
D: You didn't have to work hard to get him to
act?
M: Not at all, I didn't work hard at all. I never
work hard at acting. The actors do that and they
do it all by themselves. I try to have absolutely
nothing to do with it. The less I have to do with
it the better the results are. Once I cast the actor
I understand and I suggest without saying that
it's their job. I think direction is so much indirection. Labouring things or hitting them on the
head with a sledge hammer and calculating is
not my kinda thing. That's more melodrama. In
humour you have to be spontaneous, you have to
be constantly available to make a fool of yourself. Questioning. It's something that's instinctive and that's why I like it. I don't like drama
because it's not instinctive, its calculating. I
don't mean when I see good drama I don't like
it, but I myself don't do it.
D: How do you set that situation up among the
actors and crew?
M: I don't I set it up by not setting it up. You
keep asking a question about how hard I work.
How dol set it up? There is a way, butlcan't tell
you because! avoid doing setting up and things,
Like I say, it's indirection. I think its not unusual Almost all good comedy directors, when
you read about them, work like that.
D: The same thing was true about the guy who
played Diago in Mixed Blood.
M: Yes, I didn't tell him anything and he had
terrible problems with speech. With some Cubans it's very hard to lose their accents. He had
in addition a dyslexic problem where he reads
letters backwards and blonde became blombe.
Suit would become soup, instead of a't' he said
a 'p'. So the effort he had just to get out the stuff
he had memorized came across as an insecurity,
a kind of a timid folly. I knew where he was
coming from. So I didn't ask him to improve his
speech or anything. I like that story. Somepeople
say they can't make sense of it, but I say "So
What!" It's interesting. You do it without planning it. You try to play it by ear.
D: What about Udo Kier? Is he still't
M: Yes, he works all the time in Germa
a postcard from him recently fromJapan. Hee
a big German-Japanese eo-produc
I liked him also because he f
with English. The German accent he had was
necessary to me to do a real horror movie. I think
any Frankenstein and Dracula movies require
accents. To have Americans play them is absurd
to me. He is a wonderful actor. I loved the way
he spoke and he has a weird face. He looks like
a Martian. People would use him or not use him
because of his face but I used him because of his
speech. Then, of course, when the film appeared
in Germany they didn't even let him do his own
German. They 're so funny about that - they have
to have professional dubbing actors do all the
dubbing. They don't usually let German actors
do their own speech.
D: Why?
M: They have these traditions in Germany - its
all 'Art'. But it was his speech in English that I
liked. In German it might not have been as
menacing because when an American or Eng
lishman hears a German speaking English it has
an extra element.
Every situation calls for different possibilities and you just have to be open. That's why I
don't like this 'working hard' or 'setting up'. I
say, "Let's see, let's see." That's the spontaneous
thing I like in acting. I think one has to start in the
direction. You have to be a little spontaneous
and open when you're doing your direction.
D: How did Spike of Bensonhurst come about?
M: I forget the genesis of the whole thing but the
irony was that if you want to live in a humane
civilized way - Urban America - you have to
seek the protection of notorious mafia gangsters
to get civilized living conditions.
SPIKE:    What does it say on the Statue of
Liberty.
KIDS:     Give me your tired and your poor;
give me your huddled masses.
SPIKE:   And what else!
KTDS:     Give me a right to refuge, yearning to
be free.
SJPIKE:    And who's going to regulate all these
rejects?
KIDS: Organized Crime!
SPIKE: I CAN'T HEAR YOU!
KIDS: (LOUDER)ORGANIZEDCRIME!!!
SPIKE: Right! Organized Crime!!
M: That to me is an ironic and comical paradoxical attitude towards life that I see repeated in the
pattern of all the characters in the story. It's a
kind of a lunatic complication of life. Spike's in
boxing but he's in boxing to lose not to win.
Someone says to Spike: You always win
playing God, only if they fix the fight for you. He
says: Do you think I want to be brain damaged?
ell, he's right. There is the search for morality
the midst of immorality, The desperate need
for morality is so powerful, so bourgeois. Standards are so desperately needed now in the
horrible toilet that people are given to live in; it's
funny to see them surfacing through this mud.
Yes, they have to come out because people can't
Uve in the anarchy of the liberal behaviour, do
what ever the fuck you want. It's just too awful
and too inhumane. It's so barbaric to put people
in that situation and this is what the governments
have done in the cities. You have a little province here, but you'll get it soon enough. Your
crack will be here. You'll getyour crack addicts,
crack alleys. Somebody said they're down in
Seattle. That's notfar away. I understand Seattle's
a real toilet.
I think people should start behaving themselves. The Soviet Union will make them behave. The Soviet Union is a very popular country in the world now. They say West Germany is
going to vote to go back to East Germany because they don't like the permissiveness that's
happened. Don't you read the stories of the
German Politicians? Most of the politicians are
for re-unification with the Russian East Germany. I think if Gorbachev ran in America with
his Soviet system he'd get as many votes, if not
more, as anybody else. I think people want that
kind of discipline. I don't want it. I'd be put in a
Gulag in no time. Half the world is slave controlled by a government; the other half is government not doing anything. You have to take
your choice. The story of Spike is about a little
government run by gangsters, which is slightly
better.
I was reading the newspaper and it showed
the head of the Board of Education in New York
visiting a Spanish English class in this toilet. It
showed this photograph of Robert Wagner Jr.
visiting this class and it was a toilet. They said
the classes are so crowded, they use hallways
and toilets for classes. I just wrote that down,
"Toilet Classrooms". It says everything about
the situations people are given to live in. I said I
won't underline it too much, I'll just leave it
there. That's what I mean that you have to be
open to whatever happens and what you can use.
It's just a juggling act, making a movie. I was
explaining how unbelievable it is - this drug
selling. Story after story in the papers. I'm not
researching this. I'm just reading my daily paper. Nobody cares.
Kids selling the drugs had beepers and the
kids who wanted their crack just get up out of the
classrooms. They say they're going to the bathroom, but they go out of the classroom and they
go to a public phone and call the phone number
for the crack. The answering service beeps the
crack dealer's 'Kid'. The kids have got beepers
and usually more than one beeper goes off at the
same time. During these idiot classes the beepers are just beep, beep, beep. These kids just step
up and walk out. They don't say I wanna go to
the bathroom. I'm not making this up, this is in
the paper. They just walk out of the classroom to
go to the public phone and give the kid their
crack. Crack is sold in the classrooms with
beeper systems. Nobody gives a shit. Nobody
cares. They cannot do anything and they won't
do anything. You cannot exaggerate the extent
of the drugs.
The headline from the Post, I wish I put it
in the movie. It read: NEW YORK CITY IS
CRACK CITY.
D: Do y ou have a project that you 're working on
right now?
M: I have two or three little things floating
around and I don't know what will get going.
D: Along what lines?
M: I would like to make a movie of the Puerto
Rican girl in Spike. I Uke her because she's so
reactionary to today's types. She's very withdrawn and very private and very mysterious and
she doesn't jump up at crack. And because I
think she's an interesting person. She's a kind of
Thrillback. The movie was originally called
Spike and then Thrillback, but that didn't connect. I like Thrillback because I like things
coming out of the past into today's world. It's
differences that set people up, make them interesting.

JANUARY 1989 13 I ALMOST INTERVIEWED SONIC YOUTH
onic Youth. The name itself implies a degree of mysticism. Here are four people from New York whose body of
work has caused them to be elevated to an almost God-like
status by their followers. Their reluctance to do interviews
combined with their street cool attitude and image only
widens the existing gap between artist and audience. This
is a sophisticated noise band with a different approach.
Interviews are usually setup via managers, promoters, and record company dupes
prior to the band's arrival in town. In the
case of Sonic Youth, we had no such
luck. The promoter suggested we try to contact
the band during sound check to see if they were
interested in an interview. With this action in
mind I headed for the Town Pump. Even if they
told me to get lost I'd at least get into the gig for
free.
When I arrived at 7:30pm there was already a sizable line-up of ticketless folk who
knew the show was a fairly sure sellout. I pushed
through them and approached the ominous restraining rope. Now, the doormen at the Town
Pump seem to suffer from some kind of schizoid
condition. They alternate between being easygoing, eager to please nice guys, and being
infuriating, hopeless bozos on a terminal power
trip. The latter was their demeanor on this night.
They first told me that nobody could be admitted
until 8:00pm. I informed them I was there to
interview Sonic Youth. The door guy insisted I
was not on the guest list and could therefore fuck
off anytime now. I suggested he check the list
again. He did so for a couple of minutes, all the
while repeating that, nope, I wasn't on it. I
eventually grabbed his clipboard and pointed
my name out, which produced a pseudo-sur-
prised 'oh' from Mr. Confrontation. He was not
deterred. "I'd let you in but to be honest, only
one member of the band has shown up yet." This
was an interesting statement considering I could
see the band's guitarist Lee Ranaldo, drummer
Steve Shelley, and bassist Kim Gordon wandering about the lobby just behind him. By now
my Uttle war to get inside was over five minutes
old, and drawing a bit of attention. Someone let
Lee know I wanted to interview them. He didn't
seem too pleased. "What the fuck is going on
here, dude?! We didn't hear anything about no
14   DISCORDER
interview!" I explained the situation. He consented to an interview but didn't seem ultra-
keen. I smiled as he led me past the doorman.
We went to the pair of tables inhabited by
the Sonic Youth/Screaming Trees contingent. I
knew I was in trouble from the start of the interview. I asked what they could tell me about their
new album, Daydream Nation. Their response?
"It's a double album. New material." I stared
blankly. As Lee and Steve ate I talked informally with them. They leave to do the sound
check thing and I'm left to scavenge the considerably healthy uneaten portions of food. Lee had
a jumbo burger with water. I ate all his fries that
weren't polluted with ketchup. Steve had a
chicken burger and some mystery barbecued
meat chunks. I don't know what they were but
they were yummy.
Later, Lee asks what I do and I inform him
that I work in a record store. He screams this
information across to the band's other guitarist,
Thurston Moore. Thurston is suddenly interested in me since he likes to visit record stores
while they're on tour. I am now accepted. They
remember my name from this point on!
I finally met Kim Gordon. She had been
giving me slightly cold looks for the past
hour but thankfully she was giving everyone slightly cold looks. She's very intense yet warm and personable. Thurston and
Lee were interested in going to the record store,
which I offered to open up for a Sonic Youth pri-
vate shopping session. Our entourage of about
eight walked to the store. Once inside I was
faced with the decision of what to play in order
to be cool and gain their approval. I settle on
Bug, the new Dinosaur Jr. album. Within two
bars everyone is screaming wildly, "Bug! Buug!
Buuug!!" Dinosaur Jr. is unanimously the favorite band of Sonic Youth.
You may wonder what they bought. Well,
Kim Gordon wanted a Boys Next Door limited
edition cassette, but it was too expensive.
Thurston wanted Dressed To Kill by Kiss but
ended up buying a used Boston cassette. Lee
wanted a best of Bob Seger cassette but we only
had Night Moves. As a substitute, I gave him
one of each of the thirty-seven varieties of Madonna postcards which so fascinated him. And
an extra Shanghai Surprise one. Lee sent one
of the Surprise postcards off to Minutemen/
Firehose/Ciccone Youth superstar Mike Watt.
Somehow I felt special. I later found out Mr.
Ranaldo had helped himself to the Elvis postcards. Naughty New Yorker. The band was
surprised to see the infamous Ciccone Youth(the
group's tribute to the lady Madonna herself)
release, Into The Groovy, on a seven inch.
We headed back to the club where Lee
explained why they don't play much older
material live. "It's not a matter of being dated or
anything like that. We have so many guitars, we
have twenty something guitars with us. We're
tuned to play the new stuff, and we'd have to
have another ten guitars if we wanted to do the
old stuff, and we just can't deal with it. Plus, we
don't remember how to play half of them."
Upon entering the dressing room we were
greeted by a rather large table-sized bucket
filled with beer and ice. I wonder if local bands
get this treatment. After a couple courtesy beers
I was in just about the right mood for the appearance of the dreaded Capitol representative. You
see, Sonic Youth is no longer on SST. Daydream Nation is a Blast First release, but a
distribution deal has been worked out with
Enigma/Capitol. But not to worry, there are no
compromises on the new album.
The local Capitol girl who came by to
be an official groupie entered the
room looking for someone named
Kim Thurston. Accompanied by
some other bimbo, she proceeded to make a fool
of herself as she pathetically played the 'meet
the rock star' game. Everyone in the room made
fun of them but it seemed to go over their heads.
Expecting drool and thankyous, she explained
the special CD and cardboard guitar raffle promotion that was planned. Thurston and I suggested our idea of raffling off a used Sonic
Youth Q-Tip as an alternative. The Capitol joke
woman pretended to be amused. The singer for
the Screaming Trees was throwing up in the
adjacent room, but we were assured he did this
before all their gigs.
The Capitolette discovered I was from
CiTR so I became the temporary focus of her
attention. "So you'll do the draw?" she asked/
demanded, assuming that because I was from a
radio station I would get up at the front of a
packed nightclub to participate in the giveaway
of a hunk of cardboard. "Yeah...sure," I replied,
thinking that when the moment came the
evening's consumption of beer would enable
me to laugh in her face. But she didn't find me
later. Damn.
Time to make some music. Sonic Youth
went on after Thurston spent what seemed like
an hour fine tuning guitar after guitar. I'll admit
my bias, but I thought they were great. All new material except for a song from Bad Moon
Rising. My only complaint is that distance between the band and the crowd.
Now to give this article some informative
substance inorder to justify its existence, here is
a short list of SONIC YOUTH FACTS:
- A new Ciccone Youth lp is due in January.
- Sonic Youth are touring with twenty-one guitars.
- Sonic Youth have advanced to the point where
they tour with two vans instead of one.
- A shared record with Seattle's Mudhoney is
upcoming on the Sub Pop label. Each band will
cover a song by the other one.
- Sonic Youth spend four to five months of the
year on the road.
- There is a Kiss loop on Master-Dik.
- Thurston Moore uses a Norelco 650 TX electric shaver that has universal voltage so it can be
recharged anywhere in the world.

Julia Schenck It was cold and wet and kind of dark at 6:30-ish of a November eve.
I was bound for the old Town Pump to do an interview with the
Screaming Trees of Ellensburg, Washington, a small town just
the other side of the Cascade Mountains. This was my first intervL
and I must admit, I was nervous. A major problem was that the meeti
hadn't been pre-arranged so it was up to me to approach this band with
ominous name and convince them that my motives were as clean and pui
as my freshly-serubbed-and-shaven face.
I entered the Pump, It was warm and familiar, which was good. Thei
was no one there I even faintly recognised. This was bad. All I had to
identify the band with were the fuzzy, but quite nice photographs on the
back of their album. I decided to walk up to a long-haired guy I thought kind
of resembled someone who could possible be Mark Lanegan, the lead
singer of tkeTrees, but I wasn't sure. I introduced myself, found that I had

more since then. I think it was because of our
first record and playing Uve that got us the
attention of SST.Idon'tthinkit was any tougher
for us than for anyone else. It's kind of tough no

M: It's strange, the radio station there doesn't
seem to want to play a lot of new music. There
are students there who like us, and then there are
some local high school students as well. It's
such a small town that there isn't any sort of
music scene to speak of, but we've had some
shows there from time to time.

(We discuss REM for a short while, decide that

D: If asked to describe your sound, what would
you say?
M: I would say it's just eighties rock and roll!
D: Influences?
M: Oh yeah, there is just a ton of influences, we
like some sixties bands like Velvet
Underground, Thirteenth Floor
Elevators...seventies hard rock and we listened
to Husker Du and punk bands like the Sex
Pistols and the Saints and all that shit.
D: With regard to your latest album, what does
Invisible Lantern mean?
(The lights in the Pump suddenly and mysteriously dim.)
M: Whoa, mood lighting. It feels a lot more
intimate now. Invisible Lantern could mean
anything really—
D: Oops! (My tape recorder falls and shuts off,
thereby aborting the response, but it wasn't a
really great question anyway.) What are the best
and the worst gigs you have played?
M: I think that we have had a lot of the best for
me personally. They can be good in a lot of
different ways. But mere have been a couple of
bad ones. I remember this one show in Eugene,
Oregon, when our guitarist blew up an amp
during sound check, then knocked over another
amp onto his guitar and broke that in half. It was
the first show of the tour and we had to come up
with some new equipment real fast. Most of the
bad things that happen involve breaking stuff.
We've never been spit on or booed off the stage
yet!
D: So Mark, what would you like for Christmas?
M: Gee, that's a tough one. I'd like a lot of
money but any sort of gift would be great.
D: What about boxer shorts? Are the band into
boxers, with Christmas coming up and all?
M: God, I've tried, but I don't wear them. I
usually end up giving them to the lead singer for
King Crab. Although I think our bass player
likes them.
(Key hint here: If you want to send the band a
gift, no boxers. They don't wear them.)
D: You guys have done five records in three
years. That is quite a rate.
M: Well, our guitarist just writes a ton of songs.
Songs, songs and more songs. We're lucky to
have a record company that lets us record them.
D: Final question—What is the ultimate goal for
the band?
M: Well, we have never really discussed it, but
I guess it would be to keep on making records we
Uke; hopefully other people will like them too,
and we can keep travelling and playing. Well. The interview was over. It was fun
and I had gained some insight into the band.
However, I was now looking forward to a wild
show with the Trees and Sonic Youth. I was not
disappointed.
The Screaming Trees were loud and furious. Great S tuff! Visually the band was quite fun
as well. They had hair. Lots of it, and dammit,
they knew how to use it. I thought Donna
Dresch, the bassist, was the wildest, at least
hairwise. Watching her I was reminded of the
Loop-a-Plane ride at those cheesy carnivals that
come through small towns. But the whole band
was great to watch. Mark Pickeral pounded the
beat with much authority while Mark Lanegan
howled sounds that I knew, but couldn't quite
make out because of feedback and a muddy mix.
Gary Lee Connor, the guitarist, was almost a show himself. He leapt and thrashed,
periodically throwing his considerable bulk into
the air, and at one point, off the stage into the
crowd. He took this opportunity to perform a
feedback-laden solo amidst the enthusiastic
crowd before rolling back to his bandmates.
Such was his energy that he nearly whacked my
friend in the head on one of his frequent strafmg
runs. We stepped back, not quite ready for
physical injury—even in the name of rock 'n'
roll.
Yes, it was wild, it was woolly, it was an
all-round good time. This Discorder reporter
enjoyed the Screaming Trees and looks forward
to seeing them again, should they return to our
fair city.

Dave Watson DAZED AND CONFUSED*
Well, you know what they say: anything worth living for is worth dying for.
1. CiTR Gets High Power. Obviously this is good: CiTR is a decent radio station and deserves to
get out to as many people as possible. Obviously this is bad: there's no way the South Burnaby
Concerned Christian Parents for Gravity and Stability won't eventually try to 'do something' about
us. There's no way this will be all fun.
2. Morton Downey Jr. This guy scares me. I wouldn't be surprised if he's the 1992 Democratic
Presidential Nominee. Yet, his show can entertain, and it does shed light on a certain YAHOO
MAJORITY which most of us sophisticated intellectual types would rather pretend doesn't exist.
3. Midnight Oil Live (twice). Great show both times (better in the Coliseum because it wasn't
illegal to dance). These guys really rip it up live, rolling thunder and all that. But the audiences in
both shows were dead, dead, dead. Capable of polite, maybe even enthusiastic applause, but where's
the passion, where's the power? What's wrong with kids today?
4. Prince Live. I'm sure you're sick of the raves, but I must repeat myself one more time: if you
don't like Prince, you're either homophobic, a white supremist or too old. As for the folks who 'sat'
behind us at the concert, I can only bang my head on the road and groan. Didn't anyone ever tell
you rule one of concert going? You're not allowed to tell people they can't dance, even if they are
blocking your view. This should go for society in general: church services, bank machine line-ups,
funerals, U2 movies, you name it.
5. The Canadian Election. A damned entertaining campaign if you looked at it from the right angle.
A damned depressing result. Oh well. MOST APT EIGHTEEN YEAR OLD ANTI-FREE TRADE
ANTHEM: THE GUESS WHO—AMERICAN WOMAN.
6. The American Election. A damned boring campaign any way you looked at it. The good news:
George Whatzizname (a Republican) is the next president. Who better to reap Fucked-Up Ronny's
bitter harvest. I just hope we don't go down in the undertow.
7. Bill Vander Zalm. Yes, he's continued to entertain, but the guy is our Premier (the man with the
most important job in British Columbia) and frankly, I'm just not cynical enough (yet!) to find this
only funny.
8. Mind Altering Drugs. 'Nuf said. I've probably already broken the law.
9. Movie Trailers That Tell You the Whole Story. Advertising for the traumatized, the gentle, the
brain dead (the same people who read the last page of a book first). Fortunately, they're usually for
awful films which I wouldn't want to see anyway, especially after I know everything that happens.
10. Commercials From Hell (not my 'turn of phrase'). You know the ones. They go on for half
an hour or more, and pretend to be talk-shows, or serious documentaries, but all they really want
to do is sell you something you don't need. Have you noticed there's more of them all the time? Have
you worried that this might be the future of free television? One long commercial from hell that
never ends. Maybe it's supposed to be funny. Deep satire. A savage comment on the sorry corruption
of our souls.
Ultimately, I don't know. Lots of confusion in my brain in '88, and there's no particular reason
to expect clearer skies in '89. Oh well. Praise BOB, don't trust the aliens, Just Say No to the
Manipulations of THE CONSPIRACY, and beware the Jabberwock.

To Live and Die in 1988
1988 was yet another strange year. For many it was a year made up of issues. The Federal
election, the Presidential election, Free Trade, the Gretzky trade, the anti-abortion bill, and
the we've-got-to-dump-the-despot-anti-premier- Bill. For myself though, it was a year made
up of personalities. Strange people. From the cab driver in Manila who ran the red lights and
stopped for the greens, to the woman from New Jersey who wanted to fix me up with her stepdaughter because she thought I was the ambitious achiever type. Wrong! There were others,
from the likes of William Burroughs to the Chicago doorman who refused me entry into
Mother's Bar and Grill because of my Reid Fleming t-shirt. However, my favourite personality was Ralph, a panhandler in Berkeley for whom I bought a Corona and tried to convince
that his problems were not as great as my own. Like I said, '88 was a strange year. As for '89,
I don't think It'll be any stranger. Unless of course the one-legged guy living in the San
Francisco airport turns out to be right.
Top 10 Things that made 1988 worth living.
Prince performing The Cross at Pacific Coliseum.
Skinhead O'Connor in 86th Street
The Aberdeen night market in Hong Kong.
Dean Stockwell as Howard Hughes in Tucker.
The Godfather's single Birth School Work Death.
The lug-headed cool of Spike of Bensonhurst.
Ice-T, Kool Mo Dee, Eric B and all the other rappers that helped answer the big question of 1988—
'What time is it?'
Hallowe'en night in San Francisco.
The Triffids' Kelly's Blues.
Committing driving related offences on the Santa Monica Freeway to R.E.M.'s Orange Crush.
Top 10 Things that made 1988 less liveable.
Knee injuries.
Carol Guptail. (No, not an unrequited love but a dangerously superficial person who manages to
continue haunting me.)
Certain major theatre chains' annoying habit of showing commercials before the feature.
Bobby McFerrin's Don't Worry, Be Happy.
Legal hassles. (The score so far: 3 letters from lawyers, 1 from the Attorney General.)
The countless hours spent waiting around in Airports.
Receiving continuous reminders that Vancouver is really a very small town.
The closing of the Arts Club on Seymour to Uve bands Friday and Saturday night, and the takeover of the Savoy by unimaginative yuppies.
American trophy hunters. They represent all that is wrong with free trade. They plunder this country
and leave nothing in return but carcasses.
Living in a world that could elect Brian Mulroney and George Bush, but that couldn't see fit to
put this year's most important political figure, Cowboy Bob Ellis, onto Vancouver City Council.

and going to a local bar for a few casual drinks, taking her to her apartment,

THE JAZZ SHOW 9pm-12:30am
Cool, hot jazzhosted by the ever-suave Gavin Walker.
Jan 2: A sure cure for post-New Year's blues is an
album by pianist-leader Horace Silver called "Blowin'
The Blues Away". One of Silver's finest with his
working quintet. A Blue Note classic.
Jan 9: "Looking Up" by Vancouver's Hugh Fraser
Quintet is one of the finest Jazz records to come out
of Canada. This is what Jazz is all about...a sound for
sore ears.
Jan 16: 51 years ago to the day Benny Goodman and
company brought Jazz to Carnegie Hall. It was recorded and to this day is still one of the most popular
Jazz recordings.
Jan 23: "Blue Moods" is the title of one of trumpeter
Richard "Blue" Mitchell's most eloquent albums.
Accompanied by an all-star rhythm section with
Wynton Kelly on piano, this record is like a cold
shower on a hot day (or vice-versa).
Jan 30: Elmo Hope is one of the greatest piano

JANUARY 1989 27 Well, merry Xmas and happy New
Year and Shindig finals (and
exams) and all that—to celebrate I've decided to try to deal
with as many of the demo tapes that've been
piling up around my house as possible. So here
are a few. (Better late than never, right?):
Rin Tin Tin (Give Me a Chance) Hey, all
I know about this tape is that the band's from
Montreal and a certain friend of mine at a certain
other local campus station likes it lots. Then of
course there's the little insert with lyrics and a
charming depiction of the Man with the Mandate. As for the song itself, well, there are lots of
Mulroney speech snippets and a little wild stereo panning to liven things up. A good time for
all non-YPC's.
Pete Archer (Young and Beautiful) At
first I thought my tape deck was running slow—
I mean, this doesn't sound much like the old
Pete-Archer-the-political-commentator I've
heard before. I actually enjoyed this, and it ought
to shake up the usual demo airplay status quo a
bit. Anyway, Pete says it's meant as a bit of
Christmastime peace and love etc etc message,
which is nice.
Scream Scream Scream (Shake that
Hand) This throws me off. There's this funny
drone-y/dirge-y pace and then the word multinational is thrown around quite a bit, which
makes me think the song might be about Free
Trade (or am I obsessed?) I'm sorry but I find
this pretty boring, although SSS probably blows
away everyone else in their home town of Prince
George.
Radio City (Arson) A good sounding (catchy,
if a little familiar) guitar riff and unforced vocals
are this song's strong points. I'm not sure what
to think about the lyrics, but the overall sound
and feel is inoffensive and even nice. I wish I
knew more (read anything) about this band.
The Intoxicators (Where are We Going?)
This band has a cool name (and a sense of
humour, since the tape is called—my favourite
slogan of the 80's, haha—Say No to Drugs) and
a cool band member or two (Jim Hearst, who
also sings for the Flunkees; Dylan Jones, a
former Wunderbread guitarist; andMike Dennis, who played with Bill of Rights, Forbidden
Beat, and some group called the Psychobun-
nies). The song's got a catchy guitar line and
seems well written but suffers a little from
slightly wobbly vocals and sparse production. A
good beginning, I suspect.
And now three from Calgary:
Celibates Anonymous (Take us away)
Unfortunately, this isn't the best song on the
cassette. It starts off with a Robin Leach impression, which is kinda fun, but (in spite of being
done on a 16-track) the production isn't so great.
On top of all that, the guitar sounds pretty bad
and the vocals are dreary and buried in effects.
Too bad, really.
Liquid Light (Love to be Awake in a
Dream) LL's got some great song titles, ie
Frozen in the Alley of Love, I'm So Glad
About Dyin. Really this is just a silly song that
for some reason reminds me of the Georgia
Satellites. Nicely produced and stuff, and it's
possible to sing along with the chorus.
Hard Rain (Angela) The double-tracked
vocals are a bit much, but this is a pretty good (if
somewhat standard) song. And there's some
passionate stuff in the chorus.
Coming back to Vancouver, there's:
Bruce A and the Secular Atavists (Love
Garage) These guys have all been in at least
semi-famous local bands (Bruce, when with the
Secret Vs, penned the immortal Waiting for
the Drugs to Take Hold...) and this one's
bound to get some attention too. Bruce is witty
here (as always)—this reminds me of Frank
Zappa (circa We're Only In It For the Money,
the album that poked fun at Sgt. Pepper and
hippies in general). The slightly strained backing vocals add a certain charm and make Love
Garage even more camp as well as cool. My
only regret is that, due to one catastrophe after
another, I haven't been able to see them play yet.
And since they're headed for the studio right
now, it may be a while before I get another
chance.
The Scramblers (Salvation Train and
Out of Sight Out of Mind) Scramblers fans
can't possibly be disappointed with this. Sure,
this tape's even better produced than their earlier offerings (Salvation Train was partly produced by John Cale), but the lust-filled (lust-
inspiring?) Scramblers' sound is as strong as
ever: Howard's still talking about what's in his
pocket, John and Ziggy and Ron and Randy are
still supplying unadulterated rock and roll. What
more can I say? Powerful stuff. Not for children.

1. Northwest Music - Groups like DOA, No Fun, Nomeansno, The Sonics, The Wailers, Green
River, Young Fresh Fellows, U-Men and Sarcastic Mannequins all invoke a deep personal
hormone expansion seldom seen anywhere else.
2. Kicks Magazine - The greatest fanzine in the world. Put out by two New-Yorkin', butt-rockin'
individuals by the name of Miriam and Billy, who make this rag smell, feel and look outasight. Get
your ultimate toilet companion by writing to: Box 646 Cooper Station, NY, NY 10003.
3. Your name in print - The tingling sensations that quiver down your backbone upon seeing
yourself immortalized can bring some degree of spiritual harmony to you, a hopelessly dead soul.
4. Food and Sleep - A&W Mozza Burgers and heavily used, warm saliva coated pillow cases are
just two of the specifics in the food and sleep department designed to keep the world alive.
5. Can't Stop the Music - The only Movie planned to keep your heart a pounding through the use
of the Village People, and 1976 Olympic Gold Medal Decathlete Bruce Jenner.
6. "Perks and Kicks" - These two forms of stimulation can be either artificially or manually
triggered, and do indeed cause temporary, if not permanent, relief from daily hassles.
7. The Vox Music Company - An organization solely devoted to keeping people alive through
cheesy organ-driven, fuzztone-crusted, kaboom-powered instruments.
8. Sweat - This particular phenomenon provides the human race with instant, life-saving friends—
animals. Animals love to lick up salty sweat from all over bothmassive and petite undulating bodies.
They never miss a drop.
9. People - these manipulative tools, not found in heaven or hell, provide you, the reader, with a
degree of nostalgic live-ability.
10. Brooke Shields - Hark, everyone should attain to be an electric prune at least once.
