iWJSf **__•_ Right off the lop, HUGE congratulations are going out to our production manager, Mark Pilon, and
his lovely live-in, Holly, on Ihe
birth of their first child. Born was
the lovely Emmanuelle Allegro
ihe 30th of October. Entering this
world at a burly 9 lbs 1 oz. look for
Emmanuelle as a contender for
The Hulkster in next year's Summer Slam.
So, have you heard ihe news?
Punk rock is being reborn as you
read this. Just guess whal that
means? Ifyou said all the major
labels have dropped their "alternative" artists because they finally realized lhal mosl of 'em are
crap I'll give you points for style,
but a big goose egg for the delivery. We should be so lucky. Imagine il though: the scandal, the unemployment, the demise of Coast
radio. WouldKimG'ordon and Anthony Kiedis still be posing for
Gap ads? Il's scary how marketable this once stigmatized division of music has become—somewhat like sex; everyone wants a
part of it bul no one wants io be
caught wilh iheir pants down. How
Well, a certain trio of gentlemen by the names of Paul Cook,
Steve Jones and John Lydon (you
know him as Rotten) are reuniting
their little collective punk rock
posse, known to the world as the
Sex Pistols. Yup, for all the wrong
reasons mindyoufrighl, like there
is any good reason for a Pistols
reunion, duh), but the negotia
tions are in Ihe process. Early
figures have the Pistols reunion at
a lucrative $12 million for the
band to do with whal they may, bul
once television rights, publishing
and merchandising are figured into
Ihis deal you can expect thai num-
to triple.
Coincidentally, heroin
e again peaked
the choice drug for a new
being the drug responsible
for the death of Mr. Punk
Rock himself.Sid Vicious.
So, Rotten and Co. are in
the midst of finding a replacement bassist (original bass player Glen
Matlock is out of the pic-
some litigation with Lydon
and his associates); don'l
be surprised if they find a
woman to fulfill the job
requirements, though.
Even the Pistols can't deny
that women in rock have
become a force lo reckon
with, and lhat "token female bass player" which
is so popular with the bands nowadays could be the ace in Ihe hole
for this reunion.
So this lead': me to wonder,
what could follow in ihe wake of
this reunion? A Sub Pop single
(limited edition on colored vinyl,
of course)? A Lollapalooza dale?
A boxset? A Saturday Night Live
Whether you welcome
and whether or not it actually happens, we'll all be in line for a
ticket. Hypocrites? Maybe. One
thing is certain, Sid is rolling over
in his grave and the Pistols couldn't
have been more righl when Ihey
sang of "No future." No
future...indeed!
One final note, Ert Dredge,
Ihe Program Director al Boston's
college radio station, WMBR, is
looking for some input from fans
of Canadian alternalive-rock artists. It seems Ert and another student, hailing from Southern
Ontario, have started up a 100%
Canadian Content program and
would gratefully appreciate any
suggestions!submissions regarding independent artists worthy of

OLD SCHOOL
Dear Airhead,
I know lhat Discorder has been an
alternative magazine for a long
time, and I feel I have been alternative for ages, but I get really
mad when you criticize people who
are alternative there are lots,maybe
thousands in this city who are different and rebelling against society and maybe you should realize
we are all in this together. In high
school I was picked on by lots of
jocks, One Halloween I spiked my
hair into a Mohawk and went lo
the dance. 1 slammed to the Sex
Pistols and met a girl named Julie,
she know calls herself Seiouxsie
after her favourite band. We were
the only alternative people in our
school bul stayed with what was
hip, (I knew sub-pop would be
big). WE go to Luv-a-Fair all the
time and they slill are at the fore
front of alternative music, so	
What's my point, I am alternative,
I have earned it, Lollapallooza was
for people like me nol the idiots
who showed up, so join the fight
Discorder, you are alternative.
Sincerely,
Jason Jekill
Vancouver
P.S. You probably won't print this
bul at least listen to whal I say!
Jason, are you for real? If so, I
guess you're pretly happy wilh
this Sex Pistols news, hey? I'm
sorry lo hear that you're still living in 1979 bul my best wishes go
oultoyouandJu...Seiouxsie(sic).
As much as we'd like tojoin your
fight for allernaliveness, most of
our time is taken up wilh our charity work for ihe Salvation Army.
Know well.
HIGH SCHOOL
Airhead,
Recently, one of favorite bands,
D.O.A., came to Vancouver a few
weeks ago, but as usual, 1 wasn't
allowed in because I'm underage.
This is bullshit. Il seems like
everytime a really good band comes
to town (ie. Nomeansno,
Furnaceface) I'm left behind because of some stupid fucking rule
that says you have to be over 19 in
order to attend the concert of one
of your favorite bands. In three
years when I will be nineteen, Jello
Biafra will surely settle down and
stop touring, and D.O.A. will be
gone living in some far away place
reminiscing about their careers.
Sure there will be other bands, but
the punk legends will be gone.
That's why. Cruel elephant, the
Town Pump, and all the other
goddamn places which only lei in
the over 19 crowd—FUCK YOU.
Alternative music should be for
everyone, not just a few select
group of people that meet ihe requirements. I don'l want lo be
deprived of my right to go lo one
of these shows and I shouldn't be.
Alcohol and concerts don't mix
anyway. Some asshole always gets
sick in the pit and ends up spewing
all over the place. You'd want to
remember the concert and not just
recall barfing all over one of the
bouncers. I also get really pissed
off when somebody attends one of
these concerts, and bitches and
complains for some whimpy reason. Just be glad you were even
able to go! If you don't like it
going to these shows, give your
ticket lo someone who'll appreci
ate it, not badmouth it the next
day. I give to great places like the
Nappy Dugout and the New York
Thealre my thanks for believing
everyone should be able to come
and support their favorite bands-
and as for ther other shitholes like
the Cruel Elephant and 86 street

establishment which primarily
serves liquor. By selling beer and
olher drinks lo patrons, Ihey generate revenue lo pay iheir rent,
staff, and olher expenses. Bands,
whether or nol they are original,
alternative, or punk rock are
hired (al a large extent) on their
ability to draw people into the
club lo spend money on drinks and
keep the establishment vibrant.
Therefore, cover charges are, generally, in place lo pay ihe bands,
cialed with the musical performance. For the mosl pari, this is
there  are  exceptions...but   nol
Still, the Cruel Elephant

promoters (like the Nappy Dugout
and the now defunct Gest Quest
Co-Op) survive on idealism and

find that bills have to be paid,

broke and have lo face ihe fact
lhal money is the bottom line; music
$444.00. This, I think, is an incredible success when you lake
into consideration the amount of
money the band must have spent
on gas, food, accomodations, repairs, tolls, etc.. How many bands
do you think, would continue if
they lost money on every tour?
So my conclusion is lhal your
real enemy is either the BC liquor
legislation or your own altitude
thai ihe world owes you a good
lime. Why nol put on your own
show? Phone up your favorite
bands (their record company's
phone tt can be acquired ihrough
any city's directory assistance) and
ask them lo play an all-ages show
next time they come through town.
Just make sure lhat you and all
your friends go out and support
Your last resorts are to ei-

you can join the rest of us louts

DECEMBER Crazy Nightsv ***< ? «~^*e^       by Mark Klein
\       In The Lap Of Luxury

n Dowell turned fifteen in the st
occasion he celebrated wilh his best friend of five years,
Evan, al the Riverfront Coliseum in Cleveland, Ohio. The
two trekked via, Greyhound bus, from their native
Columbus to see Evan's favorite group Kiss play the only
Ohio date of their Crazy Nights tour. Nol to say Simon
wasn't excited by the prospect of a Kiss show, his favorite
rock group had always been Cheap Trick, but he and Evan
have had a long-running friendly feud over their heroes
dating back lo 1985. Sadly for Simon, lhat fateful summer
night marked the beginning ofthe end for their five year
clash ofthe seventies (and, as they would both point oul,
eighties) titans.
The day started out normally enough, wilh the two
bickering good-naturedly about Cheap Trick's most re-
cent offering The Doctor (already a year and a half old) and
Kiss' red-hot Crazy Nights, while the Cleveland Express
bus whirred along the 1-95. Both records were very "current" sounding, something that made the boys very happy.
"Who says Cheap Trick are yesterday's supergroup?"
Simon wondered aloud. "Ihese songs pack all the synth
punch the Thompson Twins get all the credit for." Evan
just chuckled quietly; he knew his friend was on the
defensive. Not only was The Doclor Cheap Trick's mosl
uninspired effort to dale, it was also their worst selling.
When the group had loured the midwest in support of this
loser the previous spring, they were lucky to fill a Burger
King, let alone a nitcclub, while the almighty Kiss were
cntcrtaining that night at the enormous Riverfront. Even if
some tickets had yet lo be lapped up by the heavy metal
locals, he knew that by showtime those outstanding
bleachers would fill up hke a Big Gulp.
"Romance In a Rcarvicw Mirror" came squealing
oul of Simon's Walkman™ headphones, Tony Piatt's
production filling the air. "Fuck off!" Evan
yelled, grabbing his buddy's Dream Police fanzine out of
lis hands. Simon laughed and killed the tape, but contin-
icd losing the catchy song only slightly under his breath:
It took just one look."
"Man, Rick Ncilson can'l write a new song to save
his life," Hvan snarled. "And what does Robin Zander
know about girls?" The second remark hit especially low,
bul Simon had a bevy of Paul Stanley-gay nimours lo
throwback in Evan's face. Inside, however, Simon didn't
think of his idols as having any sexual preference at all,
ilh the exception of rock V roll.
When they got to their room al the Comfort Inn late
that afternoon, Evan gave Simon his birthday present: a
Netherlands-issue cassctlcofCheapTrick'si 9X3 tour-de
force, Next Position Please, with a diff ere
three songs missing from the domestic release. "HOLY
SHIT!" Simon shouted in excitement, giving Evan a half-
hug. "Where'd you ever find this? ...Collector's Racket?
...Diamond Joe's?"
"C'mon, let's go to the show," Evan laughed, grabbing a cardigan and spraying a shot of Oscar's I:or'Ihc Man
"What's that for?" Simon asked him.
"The ladies, maaan! Bees to honey; I got this little
wonder from Keith, ihe center on the volleyball team."
Simon blushed and swallowed hard, following Evan out
into the hallway.
The show that night opened with a sel by Anthrax,
perhaps the most unlistenable group Simon thought he had
ever heard in his life! While he certainly enjoyed the hard
rock genre (CheapTrick's recent "Man-u-lip-u-lalor" could
hardly be called an easy listening song!), this stuff was just
too terrible to stand, so he was surprised to sec Evan rocking
his head up and down in beat with the tunes. "You like this?"
Simon asked him.
"Kevin gave mc the lape lasl week," Evan shouted
back above the din, "il totally rocks, dude!"
An hour later, Kiss took the slage five minutes late
with a rousing "Detroit Rock City," straight inlo "Hell Or
High Waicr" and "Bang Bang You" from their latest. "I can'l
believe they're playing these!" Simon shouted excitedly
into Evan's ear jusl as the latter took a long swig from a
semi-hidden flask.
"Want some?" Evan offered. But Simon jusl gave him
a stunned look.
"I thought you came to sec KISS?!" he yelled.
"Whal, you think I brought this lo read the label?"
Evan laughed, taking another healthy quaff of lukewarm
gin.
It wasn't until mid-set that Simon realized Evan was
no longer next to him. He didn't spot him again until Kiss
was intro-ing "Turn On The Night," their new single and
Evan's favorite from the Crazy Nights CD (Evan had jusl
bought a player and even let Simon bring his lone Cheap
Trick CD, 1985's Standing On The Edge, over to play on
occassion). There Evan was, aboul six rows down, his fist
punching in the air wilh a scantily clad blonde, possibly
a sophomore or maybe even a senior, leaning against
him. The next time Simon looked up he saw the two
of them weaving their way through the congested
aisle towards the exit. "EVAN!" Simon called to his
friend, but there was nothing lo be heard above Kiss'
multi-watt presentation of "Uh! All Nighl," not to
■n the thousands of Rock Soldiers chanting right along.
getting him backstage or
Simon couldn't beliei
Kiss show early! Th;
something.
Simon returned lo the Comfort Inn alone after the show,
and came into the room to find E an's bed a mess and the
bathroom door locked. "Who's that.'" a girl's voice asked, jusl
as Evan walked oul lo give his friend a big hug.
"Birthday Boy!" he smiled, "Sorry, we left you there,
bud"
"Did you get backstage?" Simon asked him, just as the
blonde from the concert came out of the bathroom putting a
silver spider necklace around her neck.
"Janis, Simon. Simon, Janis," Evan mumbled.
"Hi, Janis," Simon greeted her. "I'm not as big of Kiss fan
as Evan, but I thought ihey were great tonight, don't ya think?"
"Yeah, it was OK; Anthrax was really cool."
"I can'l believe they played all that Crazy Nights stuff,"
Simon continued, "cuz last year I heard ihey barely did any of
Asylum on the road."
"God, I can't believe anyone listens to Cheap  I
anymore," Janis muttered, picking up the birthday gift off the /
night table and just as quickly putting it back down.
"Simon, can you go on a coke ran?" Evan asked his friend   '
just as he was about to defend the virtues of Rick Ncilson circa-
1987 and Tom Pctersson wanna-be Jon Brandt. Simon took
some change from Evan and left the two alone in the room.
"Asshole," he hissed angrily just as he shut the door behind
him. "I'd never leave a Cheap Trick show, ever!"
When Simon returned tothc room the lights were slill on, but
Evan was passed tnit on his bed and Janis had disappeared. Simon
cracked the coke and look a long drink, then cued up "Il's Only
Uve" on his trusty Walkman. While the Neilson-Zander lyrics
defeatist lhan defiant, he slill found comfort, [
especially in the second verse:
! forgotten point/ On Ihe si

Vancouvers! What? A Spanish band
called the Vancouvers charting on
French Radio! No joke. Soon, an
interview by mail was arranged, and
here are the results; a joint Canada
Post/Spanish Mail/Discorder ven-
Nardwuar: Who are you?
Vancouvers: Angel Cubero, 21,
cowbell and bass guitar. Kiki "Tornado" Bruno, 21, drums. Juan
Santaner, 25, guitar. Marta Romero,
er... approaching 30, vocals.
Could the Vancouvers be, ahh,
PUNK?
Vancouvers: In a way. There are
many sides to punk, and we guess
we fit in some of them.
Why are you called the
Vancouvers? Did ya know there
once was a group called Bobby
Taylor and the Vancouvers?
Vancouvers: We had spent hours,
days, months, racking our brains,
and finding a name that satisfied
everybody seemed impossible. Finally we agreed on something: the
name had to have no meaning, and
the best thing we could do was lo
bring a map of N. America and
choose an appealing name. VANCOUVER was elected, and we
added the -s.
THEVANCOUVERS
By Nardwuar, the Human Serviette

What do you know about Vancouver? Can you name any Vancouver bands?
Marta: 1 know there's a building cal led
Queen Elizabeth Hall that was designed by a Greek.
Juan: I learned that the Spanish female golf team was second in the
International Amateur Golf Championship recendy held in Vancouver.
Apart from that, we know ii
was an Indian settlement in the beginning, and that many Chinese
people live there today.
As to the bands, we can name
the Smugglers, Nomeansno and
DOA.
How would you feel about a band
from Vancouver being called The
Madrids?
Vancouvers: It would be fun. We
could tour together.
Yvonne Decarlo of the Munsters
TV show is from Vancouver, so
wouldn't it be natural that the
Vancouvers would be signed to the
great Munster label out of Madrid?
Vancouvers: It's a good label. As a
matter of fact, we gave Munster a
song for the Alex Chilton Tribute.
Vancouvers, the group, and
Vancouver, the city. Like Kirsten
Barnes of Vancouver recently won
2 gold rowing medals in Spain,
home of the Vancouvers! Did the
Olympics touch the Vancouvers
in any special way?
Vancouvers: We watched ihem wilh
religious fervour. Our hearts stirred
with every medal lhal our homeland
won, and we were driven to tears in
thecaseofMadridaldlcles like young
Alfonso, tde prodigious footballer.
Are there any facists still kicking
around Spain?
Vancouvers: Legions, especially in
Who are the other happening
combos in Espagnol?
Vancouvers: You mean singing in
Spanish? We find it difficult to
warp our mother tongue into R' n' R;
very few people can do it well, so
the Spanish-sung scene is, in general terms, appalling. There are,
however, outstanding bands like
LOS ENEMIGOS, CEREBROS
EXPRIMIDOS (SQUEEZED
BRAINS) or BULLETS. As for
those who sing in English, we recommend THE PLEASURE
FUCKERS, LOS CLAVOS, THE
JOKE, CANCER MOON....
Who is the most famous Spanish
band ever?
Vancouvers.:  LOS  CANARIOS
("Get On Your Knees") or LOS
Who is the
band, ai
lated Span
why?
Juan and Angel: LA DECADA
PRODIGIOSA, because they are
but pathetic female and pscudomale
ballerinas (if something) tdat have
devoted iheir lack-of-talenl-and-
deccncy-and-all lo the consistent and
serial massacre of every old hit they
can pick and cdain lo their potpourris.
Marta: HEROES DFX SILENCIO,
because lhal poor fellow, ihe singer,
really believes he is Jim Morrison,
North American bands can tour
Europe and make tons of money.
Does this make Spanish/F.uro-
pean bands feel jealous?
Vancouvers: The N.A. bands the
Vancouvers could be "jealous" aboul
don't make precisely tons of money,
and wc would only be too happy if
tdey did, because wc love tdem. Bul
maybe older European bands are
Madrid,   home   town   of   the

Who from N.A. tours Spain the

I I whothey'vebeendoingrecords
with for some 15 years now. I've seen
them once before at the Greal Hall in
Toronto and they were live, good bass
beats pounding out, but failing to excite
an apathetic and even somewhat hostile
crowd. So, I show up at the Commodore
for soundcheck and get some kinda
antagonistic type stares from the white
rasta groupies who are grouped around
a table close to fhe stage. After a while
Joeseph Hill finally comes on stage and
I settle back for one fine soundcheck.
His deep voice makes the room boom as
he freestyles on the mike. "Reggggaaaae
FFllllllleeex, Regggggaaaeee
FLLLLEEX, FLLLEEX, FLEEXXX.
FinNNNE, FINNEE..." Hill goes on for
a while and fascinates me in a way that
hasn't dit me before with the depth and
power of his voice.
Afterwards, Joseph strolls down
onto the floor and I approach him about
tde interview wdicd dad been set up
prior. He's into it but de wants some rest
Backstage, rasta woman cuts up
buds...click, click. Josepd tokes
ally...the flight over tired him
somewhat. The presence of the groupie is
more than a little disconcerting but we all
try to work together. Joseph is a little
tired, irritated...monosyllabic.

Joseph off to smoke some ganga. I'm a

backstage where he can smoke and do
e same time. Deal.
So, where are you are you going to be

After here in Vancouver we go lo I..A.,
San Francisco, New York, we cover it ihe

Well, we worked on it over the regular
period. Got it out in time. As far as I know

Who did you have work with on it with

into no slack type music. I can't be bothered,
it' s not worth it. I'm serious, I think some of
the people who arc mak ing noise sdould jusl

The name Joseph Hill means a lot to a lot

WeU, I feel just as proud of it as mum.
Do you have a message for people?

DECEMBER   fe BY ERIC

■ I reenday are more punk than mosl
I  f^ I punk or hardcore bands around.
I   \"T| I remember saying this to myself
I when I first saw Greenday two
I I years ago. If you've been among
the lucky to hear any Greenday,
chances are lhal you know where I'm coming
Greenday play in a style most would
call pop-punk. Wilh even more pop to it
than punk, Greenday play catchy songs;
memorable songs. Hell... maybeyou could
even call it "fluffy-girl-pop stuff." But it's
more lhan music. It's more important than
a sound. It's an attitude I'm describing.
Greenday live to play their music, an unequalled passion that fills their lives. It's
something real. It's not about money or
fame or girls, they just do what they whal
to do and keep on doing it. This, my friend,
is what 1 suongly admire them for.
Greenday arc: {:;S
Billy — guitar/vocals
Mike — bass
Tre — drums

Billy — l.:.ni glad wc got lo play ihc Nappv

at ihe Nairpy Dugout souni
What is your response to people who say
that Greenday's songs have absolutely no
socially redeeming qualities, that you have
nothing valid to say, and that you're just a
"fluffy-girl-pop band"?
Tre — We say, "ha ha..."
Mike — They haven't read all the lyrics.
Billy — Let them think what they want to
think . We write what we write and if they
don't like it, to hell with them! We're not
going to cater to people. We're not going
lo sit around and ask "Why don't you like
us?". Our lyrics are obviously about somelhing, you've just got to take a look at
yourself more lhan looking at things on the
outside, like politics. There's a lot of personal politics and persqnalppinions in our
oundspnftty ci>ol to
lh.it wax a cool show, there »crc just
over 200 kids there. That's pretty
amazing* remember the firs, time you
guys played here, there was almost no
one there!
HI i IK 1: seems people lend logo to more
shows here
Are the rumors true that t'n>end;n is
the only band people will go out to sec at
Gilman Street? (Gilman Street is a great
vounteer run all-ages cluh in Berkeley.)
Billy — No, but we arc practically the only
band in the punk scene in Berkeley now.
Everbody seems lo be breaking up this year.
This year there's been five or six different
bands lhal have broken up; the bigger bands
like Blatz, Mr. T. Experience, Jack Acid,
PaxlonQuigley. Jawbreaker is going lo break
up soon. Fifteen is on shakcy ground.
- 1 think our songs are

is going on in a poltical sense. People
IeBOW how- to get along with each other, and
we try to get on more of a personal level
With people
Vmt' re not consciously writing these songs

Mike *, More or less. Wc don'l sit and say

werefccling Sl.the time.
How long do vou see Greenday continuing as a band for" l>o you want it to
continue on to be a long term thiofc?
Billy —We just i.ikeifd.n by d.iyand nol
try lo build tip expectations;
Tre — More like month bv month, actually....
Mike — Everyone likes .to predict lhal we
arc going lo break-up. Thai's why the band
has never been a "bus.new.:thing," il's a|f;

Tre — air van brokc.tod.is and I'luebcrrs
fixed it in an hour and ''twenty minutes.
Mike — Blueberry is roadie number two.
Milkbonc and Blueberry, that's Ben andScotl.
I sort of hate doing interviews...totally.
Although the finished product usually
makes it all worthwhile.
Billy — It's really hard to "read" an interview. Sometimes people say things with
different tones of voice, and its not actually what they're saying. If someone says
somebody sucks you can't tell if they're
being sarcastic or serious. Sometimes I'll
read something I've said and think "whal
an asshole, did I actually say that!?!"
I think the hardest thing to do in an
interview is have it really mean anything. It might mean something, but
maybe that's just how you felt just at
that time. You may change your mind an
hour later.
Billy — You can also think of that in the
terms of the different stages in your life:
something 1 may have said when I was
seventeen isn't going to apply when I'm
21.
The finished product has a sense of permanence. Here's this tangible thing sitting
there with pictures...someone can read
it and think to themselves "Cool, I think
I'll check out Greenday next time they
come to town. I think I'll check out a
Greenday record."
Billy — If you think about it, say ten years
from now, you could have a little collection of quotes that all add up to one thing.
You can kick back and go "Oh...that's
whal they're all about."
When you return home after touring do
you have jobs to go back to, or is the
band doing enough that you can devote
your time to just the band?
Mike — We don'l work. We're not rich,
bul we don't work. We live off of playing
jin Greenday]. I nisi hope we don't burn

forward, keep doing what we're doing, but  :
also look lo different audiences
Since you are doing this day b\ day,
month by month, seeing how things go
along, do you have an} plans for the big
major label push?
Billy —That's similaTtowbalisvassaying
before, where one thingyou say three-years
ago isn't always gong to match, up ■vith
what you say later on; the circumstance*
arc different. Three years ago 1 wasa'snot-

off my mouth. Now I've got a lot more
responsibilities. I'm not saying we're going

to punk shows, punk shows are rad, but
there's a lot of punks sneering and spitting

By the time you read this, I, Helen,
will be in a new kitchen. My then
roommate makes a wicked chickpea curry so watch for that and
other bachelor girl recipes in months
to come. We'll be thinking of you
over the holidays—have a swell
time and don't miss the Charlie
Brown Christmas special!
In the world of cooking, Mrs.
Beeton is my heroine. Peg Bracken
is a close runner-up; less classic
but more contemporary. Think how
happy I was then to find in
Bracken's The I Hate to Cook
Almanack: A Book of Days—Recipes & Relief for the Reluctant Cook
and Harried Houseperson(\976)
a recipe from Mrs. Beeton's All
About Everything (1969). Instead
of eggnog for Christmas, try
Rumfustian, guaranteed to liven
up your evening and "grow hair
on the sidewalk"!?
Rumfustian, a drink greatly
approved.
Ingredients:
12 eggs
1 quart strong beer
1 pint gin
1 bottle of sherry
1 stick of cinnamon
12 lumps of sugar
peel of 1 lemon
add the gin.Meanwhile, boil the
bottle of sherry with the cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and lemon
peel combined. As soon as the
mixtures reach boil, mix both together. Serve quile hot.
Now for a recipe of a different

play. To make your very own' clay'
dreidel for Hanukkah (adapted from
Judith Hoffman Corwin's Jewish
Holiday Fun) the process is much
like the homemade playdough you
may or may not have made as a
kid. You will need:
2 cups of flour
1 cup salt
This should make enough dreidels
for you and your friends. You i
have a Hanukkah block party!
Mix the flour and salt together in
a large bowl. Add the water a little
at a time, mixing it in. When all the
water is used up, knead the dough
until smooth.
blue acrylic paint
ablack fine-line felt-tipmarker
Make a 4" ball from the dough.
Shape the dough until il lakes the
form of the dreidel (as shown).
The bottom of Ihe dreidel must
come to a point and the lop should
be narrow enough lo be easily
held. Try to shape the dreidel so
that it is balanced, this will make
it spin easier and better.
Bake in a preheated oven al
300°F until lightly browned. (Approximately 30 minutes bul check
often to make sure the edges aren't

for best alternative video. Tankhog has been
on the cover and we sell more records in one
city than they do in all of Canada," reasons
Front Line Assembly vocalist/keyboardist,
Bill Leeb on why they should've had the
cover of this issue of Discorder. "We've
been on the cover of almost every other magazine." The
guy does have a point!
The photo shoot takes place a few hours later
behind the Soho Billiards, our rendezvous spot. Bill
and FLA live percussionist, Chris Peterson, shoot
some mean pool and look incongrous at the fashionable Soho in the heart of Yaletown. Bill is imposingly
tall and Chris looks like an industrial death rocker
extraordinaire. Rhys Fulbcr, the other half of FLA,
shows up and the shoot begins.
The editor's idea of having the band wear Santa
toques (hey, it is the Christmas issue) goes over with
a thud, but drawn in snowflakes will be tolerated. Bill
jokes that he'll come to my home if Santa hats are
drawn on him and that he knows what my car looks
like - Mr. Discorder editor, my Ufe is in your hands!
The shoot takes all of ten minutes (just the way
the band likes 'em) with Rhys, Chris and Bill doing
the usual industrial gay poses, but they make fun at
how mean they look. They take their music, but not
themselves, seriously.
Rewind the tape to July, to an interview done with
Bill and Rhys a few weeks before FLA's North
America tour. Taking place in Bill's Robson apartment, almost directly above the apartment of Skinny

Division, Wire and Killing Joke as his favorite bands
back then. Joy Division and Killing Joke's use of
synthesisers got Bill on the right track "then Fad
Gadget was the first electro record I bought that I was
really impressed with. I think that's where the real
musical roots established themselves from. Also.Spk,
Neubauten, and all that played a vital role."
Bill has been working in music for more than ten
years now, with Skinny Puppy till '86 and as FLA
since then. I remember going to the Black Market
Store on Granville mall in 1986 and seeing Bill
working there. I shook my head ruefully and wondered to my now ex-boyfriend how Bill could actually
leave Skinny Puppy? Around that same time, my ex
and I, nonchalantly went inlo Discus Records in the
old Pacific Centre mall, pretending to look at records
but really lo sneak looks at Ogre who was employed
there. He was putting up a Pointer Sisters display. It
is this sen se of history that I want to ask Bill about; the
stories that are part of Vancouver music lore that fans
in the rest of the world can only read about.
Bill recalls that at the time it seemed like nothing
was happening. "That was at the end of Images [In
Vogue], who were considered an alternative band in
Vancouver, (laughs). It was! And all the bands we
liked, ihc so-called 'Wild Planet' bands, like Portion
Control, Legendary Pink Dots and all that, were in
Europe. That's when we were writing to all that stuff
because there was nothing here. The firsl lime we

doing it. So I was obsessed with these kinds of things
I used to get boxes of mail and cassettes, people I'd
never heard of. Back then it was more underground;
it's sort of excepted now."

re they get the smallest audience
ofthe wholetour. But, yet, people arc always supportive ol DOA. Vancouver's a strange and unusual
place. Yet Nitzer Fob packed il in!"
We've hit a sore spol here. Puppy and FLA have
pul Vancouver on ihc musical map, a fact lhal not
many people here acknowledge. Both bands have a
loyal following in Curopc and the Stales; in fact, I
witnessed an example of this in Chicago in early '91.
FLA were doing an autograph signing at the Wax
Trax record store and the turnout was pretty impressive. Bill and Rhys handled the crowd professionally
and chatted amiably with their fans.
The one thing readily apparent about FLA is their
treatment towards their fans: they always have time
for them, unlike some people I've run into in the
course of my writing career. Back in Chicago, Bill,
Rhys, Carylann  (Bill's  fiance), Andy  Dunkley (a

looked at each other, "uh oh." 'Diey were genuinely
concerned and as soon as we arrived at the Cabaret
Metro they phoned the radio station and did an on-air
interview. Some bands might've said "fi|cik it" and
not bothered. Not FLA.
The excitement of going on tour (which ended
successfully here on Sept. 18) was humourously highlighted by Bill's story of trying to gel mopey for the
video wall al the rear of the stage Somehow 20 T. V.' s
got lost on the lour. "I talked lo the record Company
for an hour," Bill says on a roll. "It took an hour of

$16,000 (pretending to write a cheque). I had the gall
to phone those guys, a lot of people wouldn 't have had
the nerve to demand, 'You know, if we don*lhave this
we can't tour.' They spent a lol of money onus for this

asks Rhys gleefully. Rhys recalls the money spent,

the female singer doin' tha

it's good that somthing's happening locally. This track
sounds like it was made for

Les Liasones Dangereux
1960 (Dangerous Liasons 1960)
by French direclor/svengali Roger
Vadim was the first screen adaptation of the 18th century novel.
Vadim himself iniroducesthe film,
on his film exploration ofthe changing roles and perceptions of women
in society. (Bridget Bardot as sex

Europe,
young couple, the Valmonts, enjoy a very honesl and very open
(wink wink) marriage. Unwittingly, they fall into a game of sex
romp one-upmanship lhal leads
lo ihe disintegration of ihicr relationship and their lives. Danger-
ousLiasons 1960 centres on many
19X7
and 1988 adaptations (the forme
Dangerous Liasons, directed r
Stcphen Frcars and the lalle
Valmont ), directed by Mile
Forman), primarily the sexu
double standard to which womc
are subjected. Themoreuploda
setting of the Vadim verM.m brinj
ety and makes it recognizably
relevent to the more obtuse viewer.
There are no glitzy decolotage
costumes (sorry, breast freaks) or
astounding country manor settings,
only wonderfully subtle acting and
a hipper than thou Thelonius Monk
score. Dangerous Liasons 1960 is
worth watching if only for the
ever preasent, ever pleasant jazz
pianoofMr. Monk. Vadim's usual
- exploitative tendencies are quelled
in favour of a serious adaptation
of a sexually intellectual work.
If sexual game playing in
1960 France leaves you cold (or
you've finished masterbating to
Dangerous Liasons 1960 and you
want to move on), Akira
Kirosawa's The Seven Samuarai
is a great way to put an evening
out to pasture. It is three hours
and ten minutes of swordplay, trick -
ery, good guys, bad guys, cool
clothes, and even cooler hairdos
than you could find in any adventure classic of the Western hemisphere. Heck, George Lucas admittedly STOLE from this guy.
I'm not denying the validity of
TheMagnificentSeven, TheSeven
Samurai's American remake, as a
great western bul instead of retreading beaten paths, why nol
mosey your moccasins over to the
land where great westerns were
born: on the sets of Japanese master filmmaker Kirosawa. Be
warned, however. Ifyou haven't
caught Akirarrea yet, The Seven
Samurai (or High and Low, a dirty
detective flick, orRan, Kirosawa's
adaptation of King Lear, or The
Hidden Fortress, the inspiration
for Star Wars) will leave you highly
suseptible.

CAN'T FIND IT? Sam's has Western Canada s Largest Selection and Most Comprehensive Request Service.
ON SALE UNTIL JANUARY 10 AT 568 SEYMOUR ST. (DOWNTOWN). FOUR FLOORS OF FUN! Seasons Greetings, brals. Here is
my Christmas gift to you, the reader,
and the rocker. As of late, several
folks have approached me wondering how to actually go aboul
makingandputtingouta7" single.
It's actually a pretty simple and
short process when you get right
down to it. First, get your recorded
material onto a DAT tape. Pick
two or three songs that aren't too
long in length—the shorter they
are, the better the recording will
sound. Once the songs are onto a
DAT tape, you've got to get them
mastered. Probably the best place
in the world for mastering is K-
Disc Mastering (6550 Sunset
Blvd., Los Angeles, CA. USA
99028 orphone213-466-1323). It
usually costs about $50.00(U.S)
There they will ask you where
to have it sent to be pressed into
vinyl, tell 'em none other than
United Record Press (453 Chesnut
St., Nashville, Tennessee, USA
37203 or phone 615-259-9396).
This place is probably the cheapest and nicest place lo make 7"
records today. 1,000 records will
run you about $400.00(U.S.). You
can't make records in Canada, period. However, you can make the
covers at just about any print shop,
and the little bags can be purchased by the thousand for dirt
cheap at any packaging place.
Merry Christmas, go to it!
of those who have beaten you to it:
Locally, we have one release this
month, the long-awaited debut platter from The Rattled Roosters. Rockabilly recorded onto 24
tracks? I always thought that
rockabilly was supposed to be recorded on no more than 4 tracks:
voice, guitar, bass and drums! What
exactly were you trying to acheive
here, guys? I've seen this band a
lotta times and I know they can
rock, but this record does not rock.
It's very unfortunate but this is an
over-produced slab of corporate
cock-sucking. What the hell are
all those goofball fx doing with
the vocals? What ever happened
to the guitars? What happened to
that gutsy rockabilly edge?
Rockabilly is a wild form of rock
and roll, and this is a very tame
record. And I was really wanting
to love this one.... (Rattled Roosters, 2547 Edgar Crescent, Vancouver, B.C., V6L 2G5)
Bum have released their
lhird(!) single and, as can now be
fully expected from Bum, IT
KICKS ASS!!! Holy shit, what a
rockin' planer! The A-side is an
incredible tune entitled "Debbie
Speak" that explodes inlo a Bad
Religionish beat and ends on a
bridge so catchy you'll puke with
excitement. The B-side is yet another amazing song, "Bullet," originally done by the Misfits but re-
revved with Victorian shit-action
lo make il blaze hotter lhan ever
before. Get this Bum record! (Lance
Rock Records, 1223 College Drive,
Nanaimo, B.C., V9R 5Z5)
The Kill Rock Stars label
became real famous real quick
after releasing the compilation of
the same name featuring such ironic
combos as Nirvana and the Melvins,
plus local groups like Kreviss and
Mecca Normal. The Olympia based
label continues to roll, this time
spittin' out a single from Un-
WOU nd. Not too much to say about
this one; it's that avant garde, slow
sludge-beat stuff...you know. The
first song, "Caterpillar," gets up
lo a rockin' pace but it's a downhill
, confusing and depressing mess
from Ihen on. (Kill Rock Stars,
1023 South Adams, Suite 418,
Olympia, WA. USA 98501)
How about this for a fresh
idea...in promotion of their new
Seattle's ever Young Fresh
Fellows have released a promo
single which they're selling
for...one cent!!! And it is a very
greal single, indeed. The whole
aura ofthe record is very 1950's.
The Aside, "Stewed," is a viciously swingin' instrumental
while the B-side is a lovely bal
lad n
t of s
like "Earth Angel" or "Lonely
Boy." Lead singer Scoll once
told me the over lasagna in
Winnipeg: "All the rock and roll
songs have alrerady been written." Funny, then, how Scotl
keeps coming up with such great
ones....(PopLlama, P.O. Box

I've never been a huge fan
of the Cynics bul I've always
respected them for keeping the
torch lhat is rock and roll brightly
burning in their part of the world:
Pittsburgh, PA.. These guys have
been putting out garage rock
records for a long lime and have
evolved from the fuzzy-folk garage of their earlier albums lo
theirpresent HEAVY rock stale.
Just out is the single "Leam To
Lose" which serves as an introduction to their new album of
the same name. If this 7" is any
indication at all of what the new
record has in store il should be
one rocking disc. Fuzz, screeching vocals, cowbells et al. (Gel
Hip, P.O. Box 666, Canonsburg,
PA. USA 15317)
Thinking they'd be in the
same genre, I thought I'd review
ihe nexi 7" by The Sanity Assassins in procession with like-
minded garage rockers. Wrong.
The Sanity Assassins are some
sort of crazed psychedelic trip,
one which I will refrain from taking. The B-side of this three song
EP starts out in the right direction
but, overall, they lose me on the
stale mushroom dream of ihe A-
side. (Dionysus Records, P.O. Box
1975, Burbank, CA. USA 91507)
Okay, try this record on for
Bleeeeaaauuurrrrgghhh!
which features 41 bands and 64
songs!!! True, no joke, I listened
to it! And it's actually some of the
most hilarious shit I've heard in a
while. The 41 bands seem to be
from all over ihe place—Australia, Mcx ico. New Jersey— but most
seem centered in California. Some
of the song lilies are just hysterical loo: "Go Back To Seattle (and
Get a Haircut)" by Napalm Breath,
"Vomit Omlel" by Splatterreah,
and "Chirp Bird" by Mork Hotel.
Just a sampling of the flash-in-
ihc-pan genius displayed on this
mere 7" platler making a home for
so many horrid bands! I can'l believe ihis thing...whoops, gotla
mention "You Know I'm Gonna"
by Mouthfarl. (Slap A Ham, P.O.
Box 420843, San Francisco, CA.
USA 94142-0843)
Stepping back inlo reality,

with me if you will The Tempo

Also a good bet for money
and musical value is Screeching Weasels live song 7" EP
entitled Snappy Answers For Stupid Questions. More of thai very
fasl, mile-o-minutc pop-punk, a
la the Descendants, lo keep us all
more than satisfied. "Jcannie'sGot
A Problem Wilh Her Uterus" is an
instant hit. (Selfless Records, 8827

The lasl disc of the month is
ihc lalest from North Carolina's
Superchunk. Bashing, crashing,
melodic alt-pop lhal is so ullra-
popularon the col lege airwaves of

ANSWER Sparkmarker
Nappy Dugout
Sunday, October 25
"Free your mind and your ass will
follow" is spray-painted on one of
the walls ofthe Nappy Dugout. It's
true, you gotta go in open-minded
and absorb your surroundings. And
what surroundings! Holy Ayatollah
Crapameini! The Dugout is by far
the coolest performance venue in
Vancouver. It's everything I ever
thought was cool for a place to jam:
the barbed-wire suspended dragon,
skateboard ramps, hip graffiti, ultra-
fuckin' rad, dude! To use extremely
cliched language: IT IS THE ULTIMATE PLACE TO BE.
Theplacewasn'tasI'dthought
it would be, it was kinda crowded.
There were a lotta teenagers. I think
a lot of teenagers just hang out there
and care less aboutthemusic. Speaking of music, Sparkmarker were
great. One word: power. But they
weren't a wall of sound (as 1 was
expecting), one could actually hear
the l
s.Thisisi
old Suicidal Tendencies came to
mind, comparable by some lo All or
Pavement. They definitely do have
the Southern California sound and,
oh, Fugazi isn't that similar to 'em.
The crowd was pretty sedate.
Too bad 'cuz Sparkmarker deserve
the moshing. In fact the only people
dancing were a couple of 5-yearolds
hopping around their surf-punk
mommy. The only gripe I have with
the band is to mix the drums a little
lower. I think the lead guitarist's
voice is better 'n the lead singer's.
But, all in all, a cool performance
(particularly those th rash-rap songs).
I liked it and I'll go to the Dugout
again simply 'cuzof the way it looks.
(Hell why not?)

Rockcandy
Seattle, WA.
Monday, Noveber 2
Hey, we were heading out on the
highway, looking foradventure, and
whatever Deal sister came our way.
If you did not know, Kim (Pixies'
bassist) and Kelly Deal are the identical twin sisters who form the core
ofthe musical project known as the
Breeders. Up until this year, the
Breeders' rosteralsouicludedTanya
Donnelly (ex -Throwing Muses who
has since left to pursue her own
project, Belly). Oh, by the way, when
crossing the border DO NOT say
you are going to a rock concert,
you '11 only be asking for the custom
officials to search your orifices. Instead, tell them you are going to
Seattle to see your favourite country and western act perform, ie. the
Saddlesores at the Longhom.
Rage AG pounced onto the
Rockcandy slage and belted out the
now coventional mix of rap/
hardcore/polilical dope shit. You
could tell they were IN TH E HOUSE
because their attire was by X-Large
(the Beastie Boys' clothing line)
and their pants were 15-20 inches
too big for them. Energetic, political lyrics with load, sometimes
funky music. Rage AG were entertaining, with the highlight coming
when the guitarist simulated D.J.

The Breeders came onto the
stage and took their instruments.
Actually, they look different instruments. The latest shake-up in the
band has meant a change in who
plays whal within the band. This
was bad, very bad. It made all of the
themself, except for the drummer.
In return, many in the audience echoed the Breeders' nervousness.
After the band "labored"
through their first song, flaws and
all, a pattern emerged for the rest of
the night. Kelly Deal, lead guitarist
and smoker, looked to Kim Deal,
lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist,
for musical help (meaning what she
was suppose to be playing) while
the Breeders' bassist looked alternately to the drummer and then to
Kelly Deal in an effort to find out
what she too should be playing.The
concert was nonetheless enjoyable
to watch. At one point, the rest of the
band and the audience had to beg
Kelly Deal lo attempt one of the
Breeders' classic tunes, she had ap
parently practiced it so little she fell
she could perform it Before playing , Kelly crossed herself and looked
upwards for musical inspiration/in-
Undoubtedly as the "new
Breeders" get used to their instru-
they will be able to match the
excellence of their EP release. For
now, it is enjoyable to watch their
attempts, as long as you have their

should have sounded.

Public Enemy
The Sugarcubes
Tuesday, November 3
B.C. Place Stadium
First off, I had a freebee for this
show, there is no way I'd ever pay
$40 for any concert. Opposite the
stage, lost somewhere in the red
zone amongst thousands of drooling
Bono fans, my view of a fucking
overblown stage spanning across the
stadium, and jutting out into the
crowd, was pitiable. Besides the 2
incredibly massive speakers and five
video screens were 5 cars mounted
on cranes for extra lighting. U2 is
supposed to be a politically and
evironmentally a ware group, so why
the extravagence?
The Sugarcubes, from Iceland,
opened up the event and played for
a whopping half hour. They reminded me of the B52s, but I prefer
Siggi's [Baldursson, drummer] wailing rhythmical voice. But all the
while they played, the people around
me booed the "boring" band. This
pissed me off. They were good, all
things considered, but they really
didn't fit the granola type audience.
After a short break, Public Enemy charged on stage. DISAPPOINTMENT...this rap group sucked
bratwurst. Between sucking and
chasing around a person dressed
as a KKK member, they bitched
about the "fucking Canadian border" forna allowing Flavour Flav
into the country [Take heed all
wifebeaters.Ed.].TheSlW'swere
even more annoying. I would have

U2 finally came on stage to
a crowd reminiscent of that at a
Beatles show, but they acted like
Bono was God. The TV's simultaneously exploded into a technical
frenzy of images and blurbs. U2
played material from the Joshua
Tree, Rattle and Hum, as well as
October, and only took three tries
to get the basic beat of "Pride"
going. I left after the Bob Marley
and Elvis covers.
Overall, this show was
blcodyoverblown,overhypcd,and
overly boring. Basically...ilsucked.
Ifyou had to see this show, you might
as well have sat outside for free, because the sound was almost as good
there as it was inside.

Testament
D.R.I.
New York Theatre
Wednesday, November 4
I've never experienced a poor show
at the N.Y. Theatre, fortunately,
D.R.I, allowed this streak to continue. D.R.I, got to play bolh old and
new tunes in abundance as a result of
Testament's problems crossing the
border. Although they haven't been
heralded as a great Uve band, everything seemed to work for them that
night. They were fully in sync, energetic and had this element of honesty that was truly refreshing; there
were no attempts to be entertaining through false
pretenses. They simply
walked on stage, plugged
in, and proceeded to
tic as possible on
the board, yet keeping the quality high.
Testamentplaycdasetthat
started with an obvious altcmpl at
showing off their new lead guitarist by
playing tunes that once highlighted
ex-lead guitarist Alex Skolnick. Unfortunately, from my balcony seat,
these solos were inaudible. As I
watched him solo, I noticed that
wherein Skolnick would pick every
note on a scale, this guy wouldn't... or
couldn't- Their replacement in the
drummer position, however, pulled
off the set with more success considering he only had three days to leam the
songs.
Testament are a very different
band. Now, there's no great technique
to watch and no cooley snare in your
face. They may consider harnessing
the new talent they have rather than
fighting the change'cuz the conflict is
really obvious.

Finally, the towering trio of
Floridians known as Rein Sanction
ambled up and served iheir
homebrewed guitar muck for the
appreciative few. However, jusl like
the weather in Florida, Rein Sanction's tunes become more repetitive
and stifling as the night wears on.

"Deeper Road" and the fastest version of HendnxV'Aint No Tellin',",
it was time to put on our jackets and

Phleg Camp
Cruel Elephant
Thursday, November 5
Not a huge crowd on hand this nighl
bul there were enough people who
had seenorheard of Toronto's Phleg
Camp to make it seem thai way.
Reminiscent of another power trio
of late, Crackerbash, Phleg Camp
scored high on the diversity list,
mixing hypnotic guilar rhythms wilh
straight forward drumbeats. Check
downpour and wenl in by
myself. Ihe Jon Spencer
Blues Explosion was a few
songs into ils sel and I instantly decided lhal I liked
ihem. Jon use lo be in Pussy
ai Korinth Galore and, afler listening
son, I could definitely hear the connection. Their bluesy/rockabilly
sound reminded mc somcwhal of
the Cramps wilh a harder edge and a
becauselha's really the only ihing in
lhat vein lhal I've listened lo. Great
stuff.
'Ihc Jesus Lizard came on to a
totally hyped capacity crowd. David
Yow (singer) called us a bunch of
white Canadian cowboys, or something like lhat, then finally shut up
and the sel commenced. Ihc floor
was prelty chaotic as slamming be
gan to the droning,throbbing sound.
(By the way, a big bravo goes out to
the chick who punched the guy in
the face for being a total idiot in the
slam pit. Way to go!) Accordingly,
Yow did not disappoint those who
were expecting his usual sweating,
staggering, slobbering, and generally drunken and fucked-up stale. I
was fairly impressed to see that he
could continue to sing even as he
was writhing on the floor trying to
avoid being stomped upon.
All things considered, I can't
ly upset by being too
far back from the stage, and too
short to sec, when Yow had
anls half-way down

hanging off his
profusely swcal-
iairy,body. Nor, for
ihowed the audience a

Overall, I did enjoy their
set, as I have the other times I've
seen them, despite the grossness of
Yow and the fact lhal il seemed ihey
played pretty much the same songs
as when I saw ihem in June.

...well, you gel the idea! This month,
the month in which one simple
damn holiday occurs. You know,
Christmas, that one celebration that
everybody celebrates regardless
of their belief in the evenl itself;
the single day that commerce extended inlo four months of beating you over the bead with ads for
geegaws, trinkets, doodads, etc..
It's the time when your parents,
who spent most of the year trying
to gel you not lo talk with strangers, expect you to sit on the lap of
a man in a red suit and fake beard
and tell him your desires! And
don't get me started on the elf
thing!!!!!!!!
Anyway, enough of the boil.
My point is, you goita give gifts
anyway, right? So, why not make
said gifts unique? I mean real
unique! Like a weird and wonderful record from the very same
sources a dude like me shops! The
benefits are numerous: first of all,
you don't spend much; second if
you can find that special truly
twisted record that will elicit a
hearty yuletide chuckle from the
recipient (or al least an incredulous "what the fuck?!") you win.
You can also pretend you scoured
the town for "that special gift" just
for them, and maybe they won't
write you off as a cheap and strange
person. Here are a few ideas lo
start you on your journey:
D & G Collectors Records, 3500
E. Hastings — Lots of cool stuff
for Ihe collectors here, but the kicker
is the big trunk of 25 cent 45's and
the dollar record pile to the right
of the till that greets you as you
damndest things here, and it's always fun to see the look on their
faces when 1 load up with Wayne
Newton, Portuguese and typing
course records, and Abba, Abba,
and more Abba!!
Terminal Street Flea Market —
You see it when you surf the
Skytrain between Main St. &
Broadway Stations. It's a short
walk from Main; open Sat., Sun.
and holidays. Literally thousands
of records everywhere for below a
dollar, with the odd exceptions.
This is also where old technology
goes to die. More eight tracks,
beta videos, and Atari games than
Liquidators Flea Market, 1595
Kingsway—Smaller, cleanerand
fewer hucksters than the above
place, but watch out for the
Scientology table. Be sure you
get a Dianetics bumper sticker
before you tell them to fuck off.
Hastings Secondhand Goods, 45
W. Hastings — They don't keep
them well, butgood place for cheezy
'70's stuff.
Triple M Buy & Sell, 1143
Granville — Nestled amongst the
porno shops and video arcades is a
fine place for 45's and records.

Lullaby From The Womb — Dr.
Hajime Murooka (EMI)
While I'm on the toddler tip,
here's a lovely selection from
1974. Featuring lovely noises like
the sound of the main artery of
the mother's womb, plus mood
on  this  album  is the jamdown
between   the  sludio  band  and
7 inch 4-song EP — Keith (A
Kcnro Productions Concept)
1 dunno, but this EP seems to have
a theme: "There Is A Boy Named
Keith," "A Spelling Song For
Keith," "Keith's Party," and, of
course, "Keith, Keith"!! And I
thought Sling was self-absorbed!
Seriously, this record was put out
by Captain Kangaroo and seems
to be part of a name-specific series. This gift, needless to say,
ain't much use if you have no
friends named Keith.

This one's going out to buddy and

thing is why they felt they had to
include such a detailed description of the recording gear! Who'd
give a shit?! The two brats do
more dialogue on this LP than on
the whole fuckin' series!
Night Moves (The Professional
Approach loDiscoDance Instruction) — Denny Terrio (K-Tel)
Disco lessons from the man who
taught Travolta. Cruel disco freaks
should watch out forthis one; it's
the key to making even a bigger
loser out of yourself! Two records

BIKINI KILL
(Kill Rock Stars)
Hailed as the champions of the riot
grrl movement, the media hype
surrounding Bikini Kill, long before
this record came out, has been
phenomenal. Presumably,as amove
tocreate somemystique surrounding
the band, they began refusing all
interviews and media appearances,
spuming the likes of Spin magazine
and others. Of course this worked,
and their fame has spread far and
wide. They (and the riot grrls) have
been written about in the L.A. Times,
The New Yorker, the/Vew York Times
26 E_Rs2Srraa
and Melody Maker[nov/ Discorder.
Ed] among others.
When I heard ihrough the
alternative rock grapevine that they
cancelled their October 23 show in
Bellingham (which I went down to
see) for less lhan legitimate
reasons—they were just being
assholes, pulling a dumb rock star
trip—I felt jilted. I have to admit, I
set my mind against liking this
record, but lo and behold I found
that I set it aspin on my turntable
again and again. Whileitmay not be
a legendary rock'n'roll classic
(which I think people sort of expect,
due to all the hype) this record is
fucking raw punk rock: catchy and
danceable.
"Suck my left whhhhnnnn...."
I think the best thing aboul Bikini
KU1 is really Cathleen Hanna's
vocals. And although her praises
have already been sung by more
prestigious publications everywhere,
I have to say it, boy can this grrl wail.
She offers a very refreshing twist to
youraverage female rock vocal. She
has somelhing to say, and she says it
coolschmool business.
Albeit, there are some weak
points on the record, particularly the
"give peace a chance" segment at
the end of "Liar." Ooh, it makes me
cringe, although Cathleen doesmake
up for it right after by singing "huh,
huh," in direct mocking towards her
own words, which is really great.
"Thurston Hearts The Who" is also
a complete wnte off as a song.
The above criticisms not
withstanding, the record is terrific. I
enjoyed listening to it, it's minimal,
it rocks, it's NOW. One also has to
appreciate their efforts to remain
true to the underground by releasing
their record on a small label (when
I'm sure they've been offered deals
wilh several major-ish independent
record companies) and for being
icons to the Riot grrls who (or say
they do) "reject ihe marketplace,"
and as feminists, "reject patriarchy."
Only time will tell wheather Bikini
Kill will continue to revolutionize,
or in the face of all the glory they've
been receiving, sell out lo the
corporate rock ogre.

ROCKET    FROM    THE
CRYPT
Circa: Now
(Headhunter/Cargo)
NATION OF ULYSSES
Plays Pretty For Baby
(Dischord)
Punk rock has been dead a long
time — actually, it only existed in
the minds of Malcolm Mclaren and
EMI — but the forces lhat be will
see lo il lhat both of these albums
are labelled with that overused and
misconstrued moniker. That is a
shame considering Circa: Now and
Plays Pretty For Baby are two of
the best ROC K albums of the year.
Simply stated they are inspiring,
unoriginal, riff-heavy releases tied
by a common thread of influential
sounds from the past with some
intriguing use of homs. In both cases
the breathy use of a saxophone or
trumpet is discreet but flavours the
text  of  the   albums   with   an
exclamation mark.
The Nation of Ulysses'
exclamation mark, however, comes
in the form of their outspoken, bag-
of-wind, musical coup d'etat. like
a failing-student version of
Consolidated, NOU cough out
(Vladimir)Lenin/Mackaye(Fugazi)
rhetoric at atempo only matched by
John Zorn and hi s cronies. But don't
be fooled by anyone's descnpiion
of Nation asajazz-punk band; NOU
are above rejuvenating a long dead
term and era, and are fasl to preach
of a disease that plagues the masses
under an American republican
government.
Since the release of their
first album.yj Point Program To
Destroy America, a self-appointed
"Soundtrack to Revolution," the
Nation of Ulysses have tried to
undermine the impressionable
youth of America with their
commandments for smashing the
system. While proving themselves
hypocritical in their anti-fascist
beliefs, Nation of Ulysses have
come across as a pathetically ill -
informed group of Sassy magazine
anarchists. However.if you can take
their politically metaphoric rants
with a grain of salt ("Jean Dixon
[Mecca Normal] is scratching out
my eyes," shouts vocalist Ian F.
Svenenius sore-throatedly in "S.S.
Exploder") an album's worth of
solid musici an shipandcreativerock
hybrids await ihe listener.
Rocket From ihe Crypt's
Circa: Now, on the other hand, does
not require the shaving away of
several layers of skin to get to the
riperiffage. This baby, plucked from
the vine in full blossom, feeds the
tired and rhetorical question of who
is going to be the next big stink to be
signed The Nirvana/Helmel/Soruc
Youih Package. Let's face il, the
music of today is no different from
thai of the past, just ask Led

from the retro pack are RFTC.

witnessed in "Hair Ball Alley,"
"Don't Darlene," "Short Lip Fuser"
and "Sturdy Wrist," that set the

testosterone levels to peakin'. Far
removed from a formula sound, and
not tied down by one eilher, RFTC
fly around the musical galaxy with
a rockabilly-tinged pick-me-up
("Killy KiU") and a blue collar
rocklore jab which ponders: "I
betcha paid a lotta money for that
haircut" ("Ditch Digger"). But the best way to sum
up this album is through the slow
and tear-jerking chord change of
Circa: Now's opener, "Short Lip
Fuser"; relive it with me and you'll
know what I mean: Imagine
doddling through the high school
halls after your 2:30 class on a
Friday afternoon. Ahead is a sunny
May weekend free of homework
and full of romantic possibilities.
You exit into the student parking
lot to see an overpaid tow truck

MUDHONEY
Piece of Cake
(Reprise/Warner Bros.)
YOW! Yet another much-vaunted
"alternative" combo makes a slab
st the Glory Pot of major label
success! The anticipation is electric!
Will they achieve multi-million
dollar sales based on one catchy
single and get hooked on smack
li ke their Seattle pals. Or, will they
join Helmet, Babes in Toyland, and
soon, Hole, in the race to the delete
bin?
Mudhoney fans will love
this ihuddy, mooshy pileo' tunage.
Ihc Mudhoney sound lhal welled
up from their first EP, Superfuzz
Bigmuff, is there in spades, raw and
fleshy like a fresh floor bum. Added
is the rough garagey feel of Egg
Studios , where some ofthe finest
albums of last year were made (like
Olivelawn's Sophomore Jinx to
name but one). Lots of neat noises
come out of Mark Arm and Steve
Turner's guitars.aresult of vintage
70's pedals, no doubt, and there are
goofy short bits strewn between
ihe songs to tickle your funnybone
as well.
Although there are tons o f
memorable songs, like "Ritzville,"
"Suck You Dry," and "Living
Wreck," but there are none that
could be big singles. This is good
and bad, because you won't be
deluded with Mudhoney Fever like
the "Teen Spirit" overkill earlier
this year. However, the corporate
snots in thebigoffice will bepissed
if they don't sec the sales numbers,
and Mudhoney may be dropped
like arock, like so many other great
bands. Either way, buy it, it's a
killer LP!!!

BRIAN ENO
Nerve Net
(Opal/Warner Bros.)
The Eno-man returns, and Nerve
Net breaks Brian Eno's undeserved
fall into relative obscurity. Sure,
many know him as a producer
(Talking Heads, U2), some have
heard that he was once a member of
Roxy Music; didn't he make a
bunch of muzaks for airports loo?!
Before the airport muzaks
(which aren't all that bad on CD, by
Warm Jets and Taking Tiger
Mountain By Storm. Nerve Net is
Eno's return to pre-ambient form.
Mr. Synthesizer Keyboard
has created an album that although
covers some familiar ground—the
My Life In The Bush of Ghosts-like
"Wire Shock"—also travels to the
forefront of today's electro avant-
garde jazz; for instance "JuJu Space
Jazz." "The RoU, The Choke" is
reminescent of "Babies On Fire"
yet brought fully up to date. "Ali
Click" is very danceable, etc. etc.
I could go on but let's put
it this way, there's not a dud track
on this disc; from the superb
production by Eno with Markus
Draws, to the excellent
musicianship of Eno's numerous
guests: Robert Fripp, Benmont
Tench, John Paul Jones, King
Hastings Kwesi Banana, to name a
few. Yes this band has real
musicians and indeed real
drummers, but don'l take my word
for it, check Nerve Net out for
yourself. This is eclecticism al its
besl. And, oh yeah, play this one

KENDRA SMITH
The Guild of Temporal Adventurers
(Fiasco)
Available on CD and 10", in a very
snappy fold-in cover, this is the
latest from KendraSmith, formerly
of Opal and the Dream Syndicate.
Fans of Opal's woozy beauty or
This Mortal Coil will appreciate
the charms of this very late-night
record. A Can cover ("She Brings
the Rain"), languid tempos, harmonium drones, odd little
interludes, and some frankly dippy
guitar effects are the background
for Kendra's singing. Kendra sings,
as always, as though she's the last
one above the table at 4 a.m., wondering how much she'll get for all
the empties.
The songwriting is a lot
plainer than, say, Opal's, bul al
least it isn't filled with annoying
spot-lhe-quotegames like (ex-Opal
song writer DavidRoback's) Mazzy
Star. Ihe recording itself strikes
me as a little too clean, but that's a
personal quibble, and won't scare
off anyone who perked up at the
mention of'Ihis Mortal Coil.

LAUREL AITKEN
Rasta Man Power
(ROIR)
No, I^aurel Aitken hasn't grown
dreadlocks under his trademark
pork-pie hat; the album title is a
misnomer. RastaMonPower, aside
from being the title of a 1979 hit,
has very Uttle lo do with the 23
selections hand-picked by the Godfather of Ska himself. This is
intended to be a greatest hits package and spans the years 1960 -
1990. The album also serves as a
mini history lesson in the evolution
of Jamaican music and its parallel
development in the U.K..
Beginning with some early
R&B singles cut forthe Blue Beat
label, this well-paced collection
presents some of Aitken's excellent ska/bluebeat hits such as
"Daniel Saw theSlone" and "Sweet
Jamaica." As the ska era gave way
to rock-steady, the godfather became known as Boss Skinhead and
was a regular performer al London-area skinhead hangouts such
as Toft's. As ska went through a
revival in theU.K. in the late'70's,
the former Godfather reclaimed his
title as Mr. Bluebeat and has managed lo sustain his popularity by
having the occasional quirky hit,
such as "Rude Boy Dream" and
"Ringo the Gringo."
Laural Aitken, even after 3.5
decades, has lost none of his lire.
However, one glaring absence from
this collection is the inclusion of
any Iracks recorded in 1963 with
the Skatalites. I realize these Iracks
are available on ihe highly-recommended Long Hot Summer cassette/
album, also on ROIR, bul the inclusion of "Lion of Judah,"
"Bad-Minded Woman" or "Freedom Train" would have highly
worthwile release. Hopefully, we
won't have lo wait another 30 years
until Laurel Aitken brings out his
next greatest-tracks compilation.
Available on cassette only.

POP WILL EAT ITSELF
The Look Or The Lifestyle
(Bmg/Rca)
I can't make up my mind on this
one. On one hand we have a strong,
identifiable band sound thai does
nol let up for the duration. Vestan
Pance(?) has hit on a workable
formula. Once you've heard
P.W.E.I. you will alwaysrecognize
their sound. Herein lies the problem:
after a while it starts to gel on your
nerves a bit. Not that every track
sounds the same, "Urban Futuristic"
starts off with some interesting
sound effects, "I Was A Teenage
Grandad" strays a little at limes,
and "Harry Dean Stanton" shu ffles
to a steady groove, but forthe mosl
partit's thai familiarP.W.E! boom
boom boom.
Of course one musl keep
in mind that the gems from ihe
Black Country not far from
Birmingham arc most popular in
the dance clubs. Wilh a lillle ctsi.ii>
enhancement I'd probably flip for
this disc. Sometimes that's all thai
il lakes. Situ at ions being a.s the\ are
though, I'm inclined to give this
offering from Pop Will Eat Itself a
5 out of a possible 10.

DIALIN' FOR CELEBRITIES
This month's "Dialing for Celebrities" takes
an odd twist as old Excubus runs into a
gentleman who we'll eatt Mr. X. What's so
great aboutthis guy, well wheredo we start..?
There I was wandering through the lovely
Metrotown shopping complex when Mr. X
began speaking: "I am out to expose all of
you. I know too much, they're after me, I will
expose you!"
I looked at this ragged individual with
awe because I knew that he was a political
fugitive trapped in a system he once had the
bails to change.
Excubus: Who's after you?
Mr. X.: They are, the guys who want to kill
me, because I knowtoomuch.Ozzy Osbourne
put cameras in my eyes and I am going to
expose you.
Ya, brother, viva revolution, fear of a black
planet! Armageddon! Carry me home!
Do you have a cigarette? Give me one1
I don't smoke.
I am going to expose you.  I am Jesus Christ,
you are all fucked. I am going to expose all of
you.
Suddenly security arrived and asked him
to leave. The "man" had arrived to bring Mr. X
down but he didn't give upas they man-handled
him out of the ma!!; he screamed to expose
them, used profanity not to offend the public but
as an exclamation of frustration about this society we live in. One day, Mr. X, the masses will
rise up and follow you and your friend Ozzy
Osbourne into a Utopia where cigarettes afe
free and there are riversof chocolate milk. Don't
quit, expose us all!
I haven't seen Mr. X in at least two weeks. I
hope he's okay.
Weeelillllll, it's alternative tip time,
you hardcore, no-posers-here, l-liked-
Sonic-Youth-tirst, dye-my-hair-
b lack, wanna- be -Peter -Murphy-
Morrissey-kids. That's all of you..
1) Okay, you've dyed your hair black,
now get a part of your body pierced that
you cover wilh a swimsuit.
2) Adopt the attitude "I'm more alternative than you'...oops most of you have1
3) Get a tattoo of one of the following,
depending on what alternative group
you betong:
—Skull skate logo
—Black Flag bars
—thorns or a cross
—an anarchy symbol even if you
know nothing about politics,
—the initials F.T.W.
Goodnight Kids, Goodnight Mr. X.
