May 17, 1966 — April 30, 1993
Len Morgan died in Thailand on April 30. He drowned after his motorcycle crashed,
throwing him into a canal. In 1978, twelve year old Len founded Idle Thoughts, a pre-
Discorder era punk 'zine. He later became an occasional contributor to these same
pages— you may remember an article Len did in 1991 on Thai pop music.
Through the years, Len played bass, various wind instruments, and sang in a number
of bands: most notably Ominous Cinema, Oversoul Seven, the SISSY BOYS, Twerdocleb
and Kreviss. Len knew a hell of a lot of people. The number of great stories they could tell
about Len would fill more than a few Discorders. Lenny was loved. Lenny was a cool guy.
We miss him.

JUNE Q
0 Well, as much as I would like to rant
this month about what _ been bothering me lately, namely the huge
cock-fight (commonly known as
moshing) that recent concerts have
turned into, I figured I'd save my
wind for next month'. saib—or
maybe for some poor, unsuspecting
lout who wants to sit beside me on
the bus after the 37 sleepless hours
that I've spent in front of this fu eking
monitor in a vain attempt to get this
thing to the printers beneath the
deadline.
"Nice tie."
"Thanks, my son picked it out
for me before he was old enough to
actually acquire taste."
"Yeah, il kinda looks like he
used it for a bib too."
"Fuckyou, " I said falling back
into sleep, using my unaccomodat-
ing transit acquaintance . shoulder
as the pillow I would drool onto as I
quickly reached REM.
THE WRECKOFRACMOT.Y.
On April 9, 1993, at approximately
0200 hours, the ship of fools known
as "RadioTransubstantiation Yea!!"
capsized off the coast of Earopa. So
glorious was the wreck I didn'treal-
ize until a week later that I was
underwater. (Captain Nero I am, fool
of all fools, total NiHiLiZt, mad,
glad, and bad!!! Yes, "Radio T. Y.",
that once proud, mighty vessel that
sailed the CiTR airwaves every
alternate Thursday (11 P.M. to 2
A.M.). that bastion of bastards, that
gallant galleon that forward dipped
its prow proud inlo the most potent
positions, the most rancid acid, and
raised herself once and again out of
the deepest mire with a hail of
cannonfire, once, twice, then thrice,
and Christ! Watch him fall from
Heaven above and land prone and
ready to be re-crucified on our deck
which is now but a wreck. Oh heck,
oh hell, what's that smell? 'Tis a
ral! Aral, responsible for the wreck
of "Radio T.Y"; sole reason for
the four show suspension of "Radio T.Y." One complainer, one caller, one coward who knew how to
holler. Bolshy yarbles to thee and
thine.
"What, but what, could've
happened so, so terrible?" you
might be asskicking yourself rite
about now. Well, but well, in the
wee hours of April 9, 1993 "Radio
T.Y." performed an on-air x-peri-
ment, a survey if U wilt, of what it
was the masses were thinking on
that night. To perform the x-peri-
ment we needed some masses, so I
made like the Pied Piper and started gathering strangers from all
around Ihe Student Union Building. Meanwhile, Wild E Coyote
was at the helm of "Radio T.Y.",
swinging the boom and dropping
Uie bass and keeping on the lookout
for flying purple-assed baboons. I
had, after 10 minutes, gathered 10
people with the helpof Andrew Friesen, who shall remain nameless. One
by one they grew stranger and stranger, curiouser and curiouser, so I herded them upstairs to CiTR and corralled them into the record room.
There I turned on the mickeys and
Uke magic they began to talk into
them saying such things like "Where
the party, man" "Whose cat is dat?"
"That no cat, 'tis a dog you wog" and
Out ofthe corner of my tie I saw
the phone's red light scratching. So I
put the caller on the air. But alas,
'twas no caller, but a surprise attack
from some moron with a bad case of
Turrete's syndrome. Not that all victims of Turrete's syndrome are morons (that wouldn't be very p.c. of
me), just that this one was. If I had
Turrete's syndrome I'd say things
like, "Why is your mother so goddamn Swedish? Every morning I have
to push her naked body off of me and
pull her goddamn blond hair out of
the goddamn drain before we both
drown in pig blood." No, this clack
was spouting off the old cliches like
"Hey, are you all fags? Fags? Are you
all. Heymotherf**kers???**@!!oh,
curses! Hey, that chik U gaught thar,
dos she have larg brests? How large
are they? Where am I? Mee, a prik?
No, U prik, mee naught."
At first I thought he was brilliant with such a moving performance for an ignorant moron. Bul
onward he ranted with the same sick
script, and I let him. For the longer
he went on the more my suspicions
were being confirmed: the species
Ignorantus Moronous was not completely extinct!! "Fag fag" he ranted
like a broken Pat Buchanan Sings!
record. We waited for a point Uke
"Personally, I don't think homosexuals should be allowed in the military," or something we could debate
about, but "Fag this fag that" he
continued! So brilliant in simplicity,
Uke a baby booming forth from the
womb and screaming incoherently,
"Where the F**k am I? Who Ihe
Hell are you people? Get your hand
off my ass!" I couldn't bare to ignore
such a surging fountain of stupidity;
stupidity Uke crude oil, like sewage
raw and unrefined. I tried to educate.
I did! Hey, you can't go around
slagging 10% of the population. Start
at something lower, Uke 2%, and set
your goal of total misanthropy for
when you' re old and got a right to be
cranking. Hatred, Uke love, is nothing to rush into. And anybody who's
been there knows that true romantic
love is all that matters and what
people do for kicks is their own
business. The idea of Al and Tipper
Gore having intercourse offends me
but I' d let them into my clubhouse if
they paid the membership fee and
could sing the words to the "Domi-
nator Glitch Relapse" without missing a beat.
Yet the power(s) that be at
CiTRthinkit'sjusttopunish "Radio
T.Y." for the si ns of our callers when
it's not even Easter. What's justice
to CiTR just isn't to Radio T.Y. It
seems that a week after the April 9th
show CiTR received one complaint
from someone quite distraught over
the use of the word "fag" on the
show. If you are that person I suggest you first figure oul who your
enemy is before you fire. One complaint cost "RadioT.Y." four shows.
We gave 100 callers their rightful
freedom of speech that night, no
matter how degenerate they were. If
you felt that you had something intelligent to say, "Radio T.Y." was
your stage and we would' ve stepped
back from the mickeys. Instead, we
got calls from people Uke Bio Job
Bob and Bobcat Goldthwait copycats. Where were YOU? Behind our
backs is a bad place to be, there's a
lot of nasty people standing in line
there already, Uke CiTR. And behind CiTR's backs are even more
backstabbers who steal CD players
and turntables and, well, it just get-
very crowded there. It's just best to
do your business up front, with all
your faces facing forward where I

However, here we are, Kaptain
Nero and Wild E Coyote, with our
band of laid off airy nymphs, hairy
monsters and hordes of purple-assed
baboons reduced to calling in to other shows for our bi-weekly fix of on-
air time until our four show suspension is up. In the meantime, I guess
we got some thinking to do, as our
program director put it. It's a shame
too because I was planning to enter a
comatose till the end of June.
IftherewasaGodupinthesky
we would've at least been given the
chance to go on the air and apologi ze
to the masses for the ignorance ofthe
masses (I hate being the middle man).
But I guess we "need tlie time to
-link." So I have thought of some
solutions to our social sickness, similar to an H.G. Wells scenario with a
masocliist twist where we attackour-
selves from outer space: black man
fighting with white man against a
different black man and white man,
straight man with unstraight man
fighting another straight man and
unstraight man, until we all realize
we're all fighting for the same
tiling— to stay aUve. Slowly that
glorious day will arrive when hate
walks off in our minds, hand-in-
hand with love, and leaves us emotionally naked all taking special drugs
to enhance our poUtical correctness
wliile we practise our gender-neutered speech, which is no longer free
but who cares because we all share
the wealth anyway. That proud day
when the Thing of France, that asexual thing, says with pride, "Off with
It's head!" and then provides It with
amnesty. Once that p.c. drug kicks
in, all rolUng Its eyes back in x-tasty,
screaming for health care reforms
and the induction of Beelzbub into
the Mickey Mouse Club because,
hey, if he can pass the physical he's
got every right. Even if he can't fit
those ears over his horns.
I bled for U CiTR, Uterally, in
die first minute ofthe first day ofl 993
with Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" blasting out onto the airwaves as shards
of wine bottle glass flew forth from
the hammer's strike, here and there
and everywhere! And into my left
hand's middle rooker. Still "Radio
T.Y." broadcasted! Hallelujah!! So
where's my purple heart? Maybe we
should just go to CBS with Letter-
man, they're offering us some big
money. Really, they are, a $ 10 membership fee instead of the $20 CiTR
charges us.
Until then beware beware, on
June 17 we're back on the air, 11
P.M. to 2 A.M., "Radio Transubsta-
tantiation Yea"!! CiTR will be ours
in a fortnight.
By Baljeet Rai a.k.a. Kapiton
$20 is a small price to pay to offend
as many people as you like, isn't it?
If it was up to me you would not be
broadcasting again, ever!

Airhead
regarding review in may issue of tlie
new fIREHOSE disc
who is this Emma Lauder she
thinks she can dismiss the latest blast
from fIREHOS E & without saying a
thing directly related to tlie music
she has chosen to slag aUttle nervous
about getting wet I guess but still
wilUng to dry us out with a limited
imagination
a quick review of your admitted qualifications as to why you didnt
Uke it you were overwhelmed by the
attention span one would normally
use for tving & you have never really Ustened to flREHOSE/minute-
men/eds school choir
I dont mean to inferthat everything they have done is good only
that firehose is not the spin doctors
nope not even remotely
you either did not Usten to the
disc or do not Usten or perhaps its
true ubc is that finishing school out
at a point gray please explain but
please a Uttle more imagination than
the usual sentence of writing for
discorder for those who complain I
did my time at CiTR in 85 and it was
clubby even then in the courage
mongreling of the front running reactionary for the position of pm skim
scramble what are you afraid of (I
can hear them at the ams as they
mumble over their drinks about the
reaction having been co opted)
nothing is said about tlie music instead there are extraneous references to yourself you want toshow
us how hip you are with your post
modern colUsions but you and your
review get washed away in irrelevancy and hey it aint poignant
there is enough being said out
there without you wasting space time
& firehose im not telUng you to like
it just tell us why you dont if you
cant Usten to these things longer
than it took to right off this review
then keep your cold ass out of the
way of the trucks
I urge all to dismiss said review if you havent already muster

Dearest Discorder,
Here is my $ 15 cash for subscription
plus $2 for the hell of it, just cuz the
price to pay for such a valid & extensive means of entertainment should
not be priced so meazly, insignificant amount. So here's $17 instead!
Hey, & that's not just generous!
You guys fully deserve the $2 extra.
I'll be writing to Airhead someday
when I find time to bitch, elaborate
on my creativity or kiss ass but for
now, I just wanted to shove in this
quick appreciation for brightening
my weekend bus rides to Vancouver
& I hope you except the junk in I'm
futurely sending in. Anyway you
guys are in need of some extra cash,
let me know.

P.S. Do you ever wonder if some of
the people that write in, fully plan
out what they're going to say &
how? How to seem more alternative? More anti-alternative? More
opinionative? I say, just flow & keep
the torch alive. Be true to yourself <fc
you will never fall. Keep on rocking
in a free world. Bonus zine, bonus
radio station. Love ya guys.

Dear Airhead
Today is April 6th. I just received
the March Discorder which was
postmarked March 12. Why do you
wait two weeks into the month before you send them out? Why does it
take over three weeks to get here?
Perhaps you could offer a "first
class" subscription option for a few
dollars more...or better yet, mail them
from America, the country where
"Postal Service" is not an oxymoron. Besides, your driver could buy
a cartoon of smokes, a bottle of Rye,
and a tank of gas on the way back....

Listen, pal, we don't need you to tell
us about our postal system, especially when President Clinton_ tax
hikes are going to fuck you up a lot
more than all of you naive americans
want to believe. Being from a country with a far from desirable crime
rate, deficit, military expenditure and
social welfare system, I think you
got a lot more to worry about than
your fucking mail.
IT'S NOT THE MEAT THAT
MATTERS
Dear Airhead,
Do you think Superconductor would
play at my house completely naked
(except for toques) if I offered them
an all-you-can-eat salad bar? Just
wondering...
p Without Eyebrows
Well, you 'd have had us with our
pants down around our ankles 'til
we found out you had no eyebrows.
So...absolutely not. I must add that
an unlimited deli tray with an abundant assortment of fruitspreadsand
cheeses, coupled with a bottle of
cheap, dry red wine would sweeten
the deal somewhat.
Furthermore...would you come to
all our houses, individually, and cook
for us, naked nine meals to exact
specifications?

Dear Discorder,
I'd just like to vent my spleen &.
have someone agree with me.
I saw the Dinosaur gig Sunday. I was first in, and there was J.
using the phone.
I really dig Dinosaur so, without really thinking about it, (but
knowing he'd probably think it was
flaky) I asked for an autograph.
Without saying a word, and
holding the pen like it was a disease,
he scrawled "J" and looked at me
like I owed him money.
Now I apologised for the inconvenience, thanked him& got out
of his way - all of 5 seconds.
I want to know why this is so
repulsive.
Some may feel its another way
to push bands onto a distanced,
rockstar pedestal.
Autograph seekers are into
getting a piece of their idols getting
a piece of fame or something. Dehumanizing tliem or something Idon't
know.
After I got the autograph, I
thought about it - & the reason I did
it was it was the closest thing to what
I really wanted to do which was have
a conversation for an hour, and also,
I can keep this signature to help
bring back memories of the show
and Sunday April 25/93 Vancouver.
That's not so bad, is it?

When Does Sex Become
Ape Rape
How did it happen?
Where did it begin?
Of someone's perverted sin
Or was somebody in Africa
Lonely, desiring a monkey
and drunk on Gin
We have come to accept
That HIV
Is not secluded to
Faggots, drug addicts or an
African monkey
But that it can affect anyone
Including you or me
As my thoughts grow
slowly
And take shape
Like the fruit of the vine
Growing into a grape
I wonder what kind of
human being
Would have sex with an
ape?

I kiss you instead.
You make me nothing

Fuck you.
Fuck your "therapy".
Fuck your bad childhood.
Havana, 1958
The mid-moming sun was coming brighdy through the wiondow of Hemmingway's study in the Havana suburb of San
Francisco de Paulo. He sat across from me in a folding metal chair, dressed in a long white Cuban shirt, faded khaki shorts,
and a well worn pair of sandals. I sat in a similar metal chair, holding a micro-cassette recorder towards him with my right
hand, and sweating profusely in my Gianni Versace suit, as I asked him questions.
"I was in the net recently and I read somewhere that you and Fitzgerald were quite close in the twenties, and that you
often swam naked together in the afternoons, after you both had finished writing."
"Yes, we did do that."
"I also read that Fitzgerald was quite insecure about the size of his penis, even though yours was considerably smaller
than his. Was this true?"
He looked at me for a minute, and then he stood up and pulled down his shorts. His penis was about the same size as
mine. Then he grinned at me, pulled his shorts back up, and said, "Now you can go look at Fitzgerald's."
I walked back to my hotel room, smiling, thinking about Fitzgerald and Hemmingway sucking each other off.
That night I slept fitfully in the heat. I had planned to jack back to the V early the next morning, but I awoke with a
Cuban woman lying on top of me. It was the same woman I had balled the night before.
"Good morning, Mother," I said.
"Good morning," she said, and then she smiled, and kissed me on the mouth.
I pulled her dress up around her waist and tried to spread her legs apart.
"Remember when I was a litde boy?" I said.
She smiled again, and shook her head.
I put my left hand between her legs, and she laughed.
"That is a private place, reserved only for your father," she said.
"I'm my own father," I said, and decided to stay in Havana, 1958, for a few more hours.

J/*. On April 24/25, 1993, Whistler Mountain hosted the fifth annual Westbeach
Snowboard Classic, a North American
sanctioned snowboard world tour series. Over 300 competitors took to the
mountain to battle it out in the halfpipe
and boarder crossevents, for over 30,000
dollars in cash and prizes. These
riders included many ofthe world's
top pro's including: Shaun Palmer,
Noah Salasnek, Jimi Scott, Marc
Fawcett, Chris and Monte Roach,
Michelle Taggart, Janna Meyan,
Terje Haakonsen, Andy Hetzel and
many more. This is a story, or rather
a mini diary, of our weekend adventure, one we won't soon be forgetting....
Thurs. 22: Chucking Bob and
Arthur( that'd be our boards) in
Dunkley (our car) we raced up to
Whistler-there was no way we were

Joel Gomez and a whole slew of
players from Tahoe and didn't actually we didn't know it until we picked
up a hitchhiker who picked told us so.
Friday, 23: Today we headed up
the mountain to catch a few runs before
the competition the following day. We
had a few good runs and saw some
excellent boarders who were up for the
comp.. Svea ended up riding down the
gondola with Roach, Shawn, Palmer
and Noah Salasnek while I drooled from
in front. You have to understand, we've
admired, or did admire, these boarders
for a long time and tliis was our first
time to meet and see them board. As we
soon found out our expectations were a
tad bit high.

to the delight of Joel Gomez,
Sessions his siowboard company stickers were advertised over almost every females breasts thanks to Roach
and Palmer. These guys were
so forward and blatant it was
amusing.
At 2:00 AM we drove
Roach and Salasnek back to
Le Chamois. About an hour
later the phone rang. It was
Ranquet. He was in jail on a
drinking & driving charge. I
ended up crashing on Palmer's floor and
had a whopping one hour sleep.
Saturday 24: moming came, we had
a couple of gravols and hopped on the
gondola back up the mountain. Although
tired, we were looking forward to the

Friday night turned out to be a
real eye opener for us both. Once again
I ran into Chris Roach who formally
introduced me to Salasnek, Palmer, Loeb,
Monte Goodman, Joel Gomez, Ranquet
and Ian Monte. Booze was consumed at
a very quick rate and moves were made.
These guys were real players—the masters. 'Iheir testosterone levels were so

Ranquet was probably still locked up.
Today the pros were on the half-pipe and
the amateurs were on the boarder cross.
Carol and I decided to watch the pipe
Taking our places a foot away from
the first hit we settled in to watch the
action and shoot some pictures. Although
the sky was grey and depressing, the excitement of the competition filled fhe air.
Around 10:30 the competition began, alternating between ladies' and men's events.
The preliminary rides were quite cautious
and conservative, overall, as no one wanted
to screw up, but amusing also as many of
the riders didn't seem to worried about the comp.
The final jam was the
complete opposite, the finalists were going all-out aggro-
style. With a background of
adrenaline-pumped tunes, and
commentary by Dano
PendygTass, the pros sliredded
the pipe with incredible airs
and and stylish manoeuvres.
Half-cabs, fakies, 360s, 740s,
and 900s were all delivered.
Terje Haakonsen, a Burton
rider from Norway, and Jin-
Scott, a Lamar rider from
the U.S.A., dominated the
final by cranking the biggest airs and the most difficult of tricks. Janna Meyan
and Michelle Taggart of the
U.S. were incredibly aggressive and
talented female riders who dominated
the ladies comp..Meanwhile, the amateurs were duelling it out on the boarder
Saturday night, because the party
at the Border cantina was full by fhe
time we got there, we paid a visit to
Tommy's pub. Carol got lost somehow

floor again.
Sunday 25: Getting up was even harder this
morning. It was a miracle that

tain. The weather was
the only thing shittier
than howwe felt and
being   the   crazy
geeks that we are we
volunteered to be the
finish line judges for the
pro boarder cross.
Instead of tlie
usual slalom event iu
other competitions,
the Westbeach Classic offers the more challenging, exciting, and entertaining
Boarder Cross
the Boarder Cross is a series of hairpin
turns and jumps that sends the heats of
riders down the mountain for about 200
meters. Each heat consists of 2-6 riders
with the top two
competitors moving
into the next round,
and the top six competing in the finals.
Even fewer
riders showed up
this moming, due to
their conditions, and
the weather. Despite
the very limited visibility, the race was
still awesome. In the
semi-final, Ian
Monte completely
lost control on the
last turn and flew
over the lip in a very
amusing bail. The
sweet. Although he loves the a
he gets from being a pro, I think the
pressure and the busy lifestyle n
o him. I was
really    disappointed
when     he
both looking forward to seeing
him at the camps this summer.
As of late I've opened up the "Write
In" sections of snowboarder/skateboarder
to read negative opinions to the
typical pro attitude; our opinions aren't
that far off. This weekend turned out to
be a reality check on the word
"attitude." Almost all of
fhe pro riders had a
disturbingly lame,
obnoxious,  attitude   problem.
They also had
these typical
player per-
equallyasgoodand
dangerous, despite the fact that they didn't
seem up for fhe race. In the final, one girl
bailed and another's board caught her
head. OUCH!
During the few sleepless nights of
the competition, we had the opportunity
of meeting a few of the pro riders. Chris
Roch is one of them. Chris rides for
Santa Cruz and lives with his brother
Monte at their father's place in Lake
Tahoe, Calif.. Chris, who had always
skated, began boarding about 5 or 6 years
ago. He got his older brother into it, but
of the two Cliris has a definite skate-
influenced style. Riding with the Tahoe
Brothers, competing, travelling, and being a ravid player virtually consumes his
whole life. Around the guys, Chris had
the typical 'lama snot-assedpro, mightier
than thou, go fuck yourself attitude. By
Cadillac-tattooed body. Raw aggression
poured from him, on the mountain and
off. Shaun has been placed in the spotlight of the snowboarding world in the
past couple years, and deservedly so. His

Despite the weather, the Westbeach
Snowboard Classic #5 was a success.
Salassnek, on the
other hand, was one
of the least conceited riders. A pro
skateboarder and snowboarder (his first
love being skateboarding), Noah was rad
to hang around with because his head
wasn't way above the clouds. We were
both looking forward to seeing him ride,
especially in the half-pipe, so it was a
major disappointment when he didn't
compete. Even more so than Roach, his
Tlie competitors were all extremely talented, the half-pipe and boarder cross
competitions were superbly put together,
and the entire event was totally exciting

The last thing
I needed before doing this interview with a sailing
sore Flowerhead were angry
words from Justin[CiTR music
director]. However, the Texan
chanteur, Eric Faust and myself chatted amicably for an
extended amount of time. Ah,
the power to interrogate total
strangers with really
personal questions is too good
to be true.
Discorder: Sorry that I woke
you up.
EricFaust: It'sokay, I just can't
seemtowinforlosin' with these
Bob Wiseman is a very busy man. Bursting
onto the Canadian music scene as the
keyboardist for Blue Rodeo, bis career has
been steadily expanding into other musical
s. First as
To
How's life in Texas today?
It's pretty damn beautiful. I
washed my car today, which I
hadn't done in about four years,
and it had about five layers of
dirt on it.
So what are you guys up to?
Well, we went out with Blind
Melon for about two weeks, we
just did a little east coast tour
and now we're gonna go out
with Drivin n' Cryin for about
three weeks. We were supposed
to play Vancouver but they cancelled the show. We can't win
for that one either.
So, if you weren't playing
music what do you think you 'd
be doing, washing your car?
I'd probably be living on the
streets at this point.
That desperate, huh?
I really don't have any clue. I
haven't really thought about it.
I did that whole school thing
but I ended up with an advertising degree, and I don't think I
could actually get a job in that.
1 couldn't bring myself todoit.
Has your degree helped you
at all?
Well, it helped, initially, when
we were trying to get the band
together and do our own press
and stuff like that. At this point
it's nothing to speak about.
So when and how did you guys
all get together?
We were all going to school
here at the University of Texas
and I didn't want to get a real
job, nobody else did either, so
just decided to follow up on
s music thing which we'd
been dabbling in for a while.
Are you guys the black sheep
of the Austin, Texas music
There's a really big alternative/underground thing going
here, a lot of punk and thrash
bands, but we're not the most
radical guys around. Maybe the
most successful of the alternative bands to come out recently.
Was it important for you guys
to become successful ? Did you
give yourselves a time limit?
Not at all, it was just something to occupy our time when
we didn' t ha ve jobs. We found
ourselves really lucky in getting a record deal. We were
just sorta discovered and didn't
really shop our tape around; it
fell into place and here we are
just riding the wave.
Who were your major influ-
Well, I think we were all heavily influenced by the whole
classic rock thing: Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and all that.
We've had those comparisons
made to the seventies,
psychedelia, hard rock thing.
It must be aggravating to always get compared to other
people.
People have to categorize thi ngs
in their own mind; if you're
unclassifiable I think you're
doomed.
Is touring stressful on your
friendships?
At first it was because nobody
knew how to deal with it, but
now we know what to expect
and we're all pretty easy going, it's no big deal.
Do any of the band member-
still live with their parents?
Uh, no.
How do you go about writing
songs?
I guess I'm the lyricist by default. Everyone contributes to
the songwriting. It's very collaborative but non-democratic.
How do you prevent boredom from playing the same
songs every night?
Hopefully, we like our songs
well enough that we can get
away with it. It's just exciting
to be in front of a new group of
people. It's still pretty fresh
for us.
Are you still influenced by
new music that you hear?
I don't spend alot of time keeping up with new music so, no.
artist and then as a producer, there are very
few musicians be hasn't worked with in
Canada. Mendelson Joe, Ben Mink, Michelle
McAdorey, Jane Siberry, Mary Margaret
O'Hara, The Razorbacks, among others,
have all become acquainted with the musical talents of Bob.
His highly original singing and songwriting
go far beyond what is considered normal
CanCon (look out Daniel Lanois).
Taking a break from current touring
with the Barenaked Ladies, Bob is playing
a few solo dates across Western Canada in
support of his new release City of Wood. He
dropped by CiTR and Discorder hadachance
to speak to him.
Discorder. Tbe last lime you played in
Vancouver was at The Railway Clu b, this
time you're it Ihe East Vancouver Cultural Centre, you also have a new release
entitled City of Wood (on WEA). Musically, things ire looking quile positive.
Are you pleased with the direction of
your career?
Bob Wiseman: Yeah, I like the direction it's
heading right now. The thrust of what I
want to do now, though, is to get my stuff
more well known. I can play throughout
Canada and it's pretty
fun, but I'm not really well known in the
States or Europe. I'll try to do that more with
my spare time, get to the States, 'cuz it's
just economically more simple to cross the
border and drive to different places.
You're on Warner Brothers records. Do
you find thai being on a big label per se,
has helped you in making inroads into
the Slates?
way to be different would be to try and
make it have more continuity of atmosphere. Like Blue by Joni Mitchell. That
album, to me, just goes from beginning to
end. It's really neat to me. I wanted to, in my
own bumble way, try lo do something like
that.
I noticed that the lyrical content from
much of your earlier material addressed
_su es such as Ihe sink ing of Greenpeace's
Rainbow Warrior by ¥ ranee's secrelserv-
iceand the Bhopal disaster. On your previous release, you sung aboul US spraying of defoliant on coca plantations in
Peru and FBI intimidation of AIM (American Indian Movement). With City of Wood,
the issues you focus on are more home-
grow. For example in the song "Have A
Nice Day" you talk a bout Victoria lawyer
Doug Christie.
That might be true. I haven't consciously
noticed that although and I could argue
from another angle, I suppose, that there are
home-grown songs on the second release:
the [album) cover is Louis Riel, and there
were some other songs. The main thing is
that I sing about shit. On the current record
there's something really home-grown, that
being the song about Douglas Christie. I've
noticed his name in the paper many times.
He's from Victoria and he's defended all
sorts of people who have been accused of
things that are really pretty disgusting to
me. Things that are ultimately racist or anti-
semitic. I wrote that song from the perspective of his answering machine message.
The song City of Wood teak initially with
the issue of sexual harassment from the
female perspective. But you look that
song to a further, more universal, level in
that, everyone is oppressed in some way
during their life.
point that the
and died too young. Well, I wrote this song
about him dying. He was a junkie. I remember his eyes. When people start doing heroin,
if they have a problem, their eyes start to
have a glossy look to them like a zombie.
Anyways, I wrote this song after he died. He
did have a song thai was kind of a hit called
"In Spite Of The Danger," so I called my
song "In Spite Of The Danger" as well.
Do you like vinyl?
Yeah, I put out a flexi-disc last year. It was
put together by a guy named Mark Lerner in
New York, who works for Rolling Stone.
Anyway, he's got a band called Flat Old
World and he's put this thing out. It was a
collection of me and a bunch of other band-
called From the Rags and
Bones Shop. And it was hke
incredible
_ BY EMMA LAUDER J
There  have  been
some subtle changes
in City of Wood, from
your earlier recordings. This
seems to presents softer
sound. It's as though
Bob's gone solo for real.
On 1989's In her Dream,
you had a great diversity
of musicians, from your
brother Ron playing the answering      machine,     to
oe, Ben Mink,
and Mary Margaret O'Hara.
Joe's actually been on each release. Joe and Hugh Phillips have
been the only continuity on each
record. Yeah, there have been a lot
of people on each of the records.
The first two records on Warner were kind
of more extreme. I think I went hard left and
right and upside down and inside out as
much as I could. But just before I made City
of Wood I was thinking that's precisely
what 1 was going to do: "I'm going to make
something different again." Then I realized, "No, that's what I have done." So the
They've hidden it from me. The leadsinger
is a brute, though. It could be true. I don't
thing they've revealed everything to me
in the couple of months that we've been
living together.
Speaking of bands, are you slill in contact with (be guys from Blue Rodeo?
Yes. Well, they're on the road lots and I'm
busy lots. I saw Jim [Cuddy] at the last
Juno party and I saw Seymore Stein there
too, the guy that owns Sire Records. I
said, "Seymore, I'm the only guy in Toronto you haven't signed," and he gave
me his card. But that's about as far as it
Blue Rodeo had an organ sound that
was reminiscent of 60's organs like
Farfisa, Vox and Acetone Do you have
some wid collection at home?
Not really. 1 had an Acetone organ that I
got at Long and McQuadc.for a hundred
bucks. That's all I had Blue Rodeo was the
first band I ever played in and when they
asked me to come over and play I thought
that was a great idea. I grew up in Winnipeg and moved to Toronto, so I took the
keyboard with me hoping that someone
would ask me to play. But you know
what's funny? When something's become
successful people focus on the equipment
instead ofthe talent. A lot of people would
come lo me and say, "Ooh, Acetone..." as
though I had spent a lot
of time hunting for an Acetone. It was all
that Ihere was. I mean, I have two of them

from Italy to former Yugoslavia.
It is the biggest and the most important commercial port in former
Yugoslavia and now in Croatia.

Croatia, Dana Plato or Pure?

I'm not able to match the Canadian bands to the songs. The only person

famous in Croatia.

Vancouver has some Croatian-Canadian rock'n' roll bands of its

Never heard before for the Fibbing Lenarduzzis or the Toilet-Mouth
Vanellis.
How has the civil war in former Yugoslavia affected the production
of art and music in Croatia?
The war in ex-Yugoslavia changed many things. Lots of people make
their artworks with strong patriotic accent, so you can understand that
everything there is a little bit, the same. Everything is under the difficult
situation there. That's why we like to have a certain distance with the
actual scene in Croatia, as I wrote in the first answer.
Where do you see yourselves fitting in or not fitting in with what's
happening in North America? Europe?
Ideologically, we consider ourselves cosmopolits: we feel involved in
what's happening everywhere. Naturally, not politically, just as musicians and as persons/individuals.

You speak incredibly fast in Canada. Ifyou

as you're going with the fast forward button

The Prophet Qua-Sepel has been spinning his
message of fantasy, transcendence and spirituality
over ihe course of thirteen albums (and a handful of
cassetle-only releases). On ihe Dots fourteenth album is the conclusion ofthe "Shadow Weaver" tale

"Shadow Weaver" opuswas crealedwith Silverman
on keyboards and exotic devices, Ryan Moore on
bass and acoustic guitar, Martijn de Kleer handling
guitar and drums, Niels van Hoornblower lives up to
his surname and of course The Prophet Qa-Sepel

Edward Ka-spel.

Ryan Moore of the Legendary Pink Dots. Also,
formerly of Vancouver, BC.
I've heard lhat on July 5th, 1998, there's going to
be a faked invasion that's going to happen on the
world...
Let me intercede here. Today, May the 7th, 1993,
some guy predicted that California would actually
detach itself from tlie rest of America and go screaming into the sea. And reverberations would go right
up to here in Vancouver. We' ve got four hours left to
disprove his theory.
And who said this?
The same guy who also predicted that George Bush
would win the last American election.
There were some postmen who
were shot up yesterday, could
that haveanything to do with
it?
Maybe with the typeof guns
that they were using because when they use those
really heavy duty guns, the

changes in the make-up of

someone shot a postman, maybe

Ever heard of William Cooper before? He says
that on July 5th, 1998, there's going to be an alien
invasion. It's not going to be aliens invading, but
in fact it's going to be Freemasons flying these
aircraft so it looks like an alien invasion. We go,
"Oh my God, the aliens are coining." We turn to
fellow Freemasons in the world and go "We need
a leader." They become our leaders and then they
put us under occupation.
Sounds entirely reasonable to me.
And you think, "Well, gee, how did the Freemasons get alien technology?" We've learned Ihrough
the teachings of William Cooper that the Germans had alien technology in WWII and that's

but Freemasons flying UfOs. Then we're gonna
look tor a leader, rightf And who's gonna be the
leader but the Freerflpsons.
Yeah, but maybe tj|s Freemasons are already the

What about JFK?
John F. Kennedy: megalomaniac; almost caused the
end of the world; Cuba crisis.
How does he play into Legendary Pink Dots

John F. Kennedy, of course, is alive and well and
advising tlie current regime in the White House. I
read it in the Weekly World News. Helooksabitgrey

He was killed by the driver, did you know that? If

Why did you move from England to Holland?
Windmills, cheese, canals—three good reasons.
Has Vancouver's lush, green, rainforest climate
assisted or hindered your drug enjoyment?
My drug enjoyment? My drug enjoyment? Well, of
course, I don't partake in any drugs whatsoever.
Let's just say, you being a layperson, you're out
there and you're on drugs and you go to Vancouver. Do you think Vancouver is a nice place to
take drugs even if you haven't done drugs before?
It just depends on the weather, realty. When it's like
this, it's dreadful. When it's like it was a couple of
summers ago, it's wonderful.
You have many, many albums in the Legendary

Discorder: Do you feel music
is the best means to express
your ideas?
Actually, sometimes I think my
taste is too offbeat and I should
do something more accessible,
li ke publishing essays, but there
are some die-hard fans that keep
me going.
By the nature of your music
and elements you use in its
production, are you concerned
that UPR.O.T.O.R. may get
lumped into the hardcore-
tech no/ravc/electro- punk/
Nitzer Ebb/D.A.F./ Skinny
Puppy thing?
I really don't care what I'm being lumped into. It's only music. Most ofthe bands you mention are very liberal. I am not
liberal at all.
Does science = knowledge?
Science is the knowledge we all
share. The other knowledge is
personal, and we keep it for ourselves.
What are the basic tenets of
the Technocracy philosophy?
Is it merely an economic
theory?
Technocracy is a very complex

Could you please explain the
Science Vs. Chaos element?
Clock DVA's "NYC Overload"
is based on the nine-hour
breakdown of AT&T's long
distance telephone network in
New York, which dramatised
"the vulnerability of complex
computer systems everywhere
and that chaos is evident in all
systems". How does Science
Vs. Chaos remedy this situation and future situations?
There is no chaos. All there is
order. We call chaos what we
humans can't see, sense or explain. In scientific history, the
chaos theory era started with
Heissenberg's Uncertainty Relation. Before that it was the era
of causality: the logic of cause
and effect. Heissenberg's theory
is absurd and it amazes me that
no one ever questioned it. But
once it was established a whole
scientific culture and subculture,
as well as a whole new philosophy, evolved out of it. But no
oneeverquestioned the original
theory, wliich says: If the scientist hits a frontier of microscopic
particles too small to measure
without distorting the original
path of the particles, he should
measure anyway and call the
distorted result, the resultof uncertainty. Which means creating a theory out of the fact, that
you don't know anything.
Heisseitberg was an ambitious
scientist unable to accept the
fact that he reached a microscopic area too small for human
to examine. Here lies the origin
of the Chaos theory: the theory
of denying not to know. The
Clock DVA interpretation of a
phone system breakdown is just
one example. An ape, facing a
broken bicycle would probably
say the same thing: "Chaos is
everywhere"!
What does it mean to be the
Grand Rotor of the National
Modulation?
It means that I'm authorized to
modulate (influence, in this context) the Nation. My associates
and I love political titles that
correspond to electronic entities. Historically that can be found
in the technocratic "Farads" (an
electronic measure), the original Technocracy Youth group.
Do extra-terrestrial cultures
exist?
I hope so. It is the only hope for
gods in our nihilistic time.
Whatis the significance of your
musical nameUPR.O.T.O.R.7
Originally, UPR.O.T.O.R. was
called United Planets. The first
cassettes I put out were illustrated with collages of science
fiction and Nazi art. Then, as oh
the American Gothic Compilation, I changed it to UP. On the
first maxi-single it evolved into
U.P. - the Rotorbeat. Then, on
the Sacred War compilation, I
again changed it to U.P./Rotor.
The final R.O.T.O.R. (Network
of Uprotor) was influenced by a
movie with the same title. It's a
bad Robocop tip-off but I Hked
theabbreviations, which we now
change all the time (the initials
we will stick to). At the same
time I discovered the movie
R.O.T.O.R., I saw a TV-documentary on autistickids in which
one of them repeated the word
Inyour musical outings, isedu-
mic electronic noise that people
like us enjoy.
In regards to the Sacred War
project on which you appear,
how does Satanism and Occultism mesh with technology?
Afterall, science and religion
have been at odds since the
days of Copernicus and
Kepler?
Occultism is justa scientifically
unexplored area of reality.
Satanism (in the positive sense)
goes together well with Technology. His satanic majesty,
Anton LaVey himself, for example, is a technology freak. To
say it with the words of Emst
Junger: "Technology as the destroyer of all beliefs, is therefore the greatest Antichristian
force of all rimes."
Did AIDS emerge from a Pentagon laboratory? What are
your feelings on this theory?
I believe AIDS is a result of
over-population. The closer we
humans live together, the more
diseases that will emerge. Overpopulation is a disease that must
be fought.
Who are some of your contemporaries (musically speaking) in your field that you ad-
I admire well-modulated Techno-
House. but what bothers me the
most in that genre are the minor
piano chords, and soul voices
and melodies in general. That's
why I stripped all that away from
the UPR.O.T.O.R. tracks; to have
pure frequency-modulation. Very

"Total commitment to the Palestinian cause, direct action of all
forms justified" —Muslimgauze,
1990
The principle influence behind
Muslimgauze is the political facts of
the Middle-East, though support of
the P.LO. is the main backbone.
There are no musical influences,
only political facts and figureheads
e.g. Arafat, Gadarfi, Bhutto, Khaled,
etc. Such things are the starting
point from which Muslimgauze's music is taken. We have just (Gulf War,
so called) had a small skirmish in
the Middle-East, this area of the
work) is most important Quite soon
every country is going to have to
choose which side it is ore to help
free the people of Palestine or to
help Israel oppress them even further. Any so-called peace talks will
fail unless occupied territories are
relinquished to start a process of
total Israeli retreat and defeat This
country is guilty of every breach of
human rights there is. To date, it
has been able to subjuga te the people of Palestine with Americanmoney
and military help. 1993 will, I hope,
bring a new outlook from America.
Seeing the damage it has caused in the
Middle East. I hope it cart use its economic muscle over Israel Hke it used its
military muscle over Iraq. There is a lot
more to Muslimgauze than just a few
pieces of music on a record or CD. There
are no bands around who I go out of my
way to hear/see! The main music I listen
to is authentic and unable to be pigeonholed. People seem to buy What they are
told to. They hearwhat other peoplehave
decided is good. Go out and discover.
—Bryn Jons*, Manchester
ht tlie ambient, ethnic/industrial
scene, one performer stands tall. As accomplished as he is controversial, Bryn
Jones (Muslimgauze) fuels the inspiration for the likes of Delerium, Vasilisk,
Ldciano Dari, Shinjuku Thief and others,
yet neglects to muster up a whole lot of
publicity for himself. Therefore, it was
with great interest and delight to have
Jones respond to a few questions for
Discorder. :
Piscorder. Why do you think you get
lumped in With the industrial or experimental scenes?
Jones* Because there's no other pigeonhole, I think. That's ill it is. People are
safer wth a label, unfortenately. <
Themusic you create, is absolutely breath
taking, however, in the western imperialist sense, your slogan is quite shocking.
Do the politics of Bryn Jones come into
play when dealing with other members of
the musical community?
Thanks for your commment that
Muslimgauze's music is breathtaking.
Muslimgauze usually only receive abuse,
so this is very welcome. Muslimgauze
strive to produce unique thought-provoking releases. This may or may not be
achieved. I hope so. Political facts are
the backbone of Muslimgauze's music.
Every piece of music is influenced by a
political fact, be it P.LO./lran/lndia/Af-
ghanistan/Ubya, etc.-As for other bands,
I don't seek out to hear anyone or exchange thoughts. Muslimgauze don't
preach, thafs why there are no bad lyrics
badly sung on Muslimgauze music.
Can Muslimgauze on its own be appreciated if a separation is made between the
music and its politics? Is a reaction on
your part necessary when a listener dakns
the Muslimgauze musical experience
doesn't require the acceptance of your
political commitment?
The music can be listened to without an
appreciation of its political origin, but I
hope that after listening the person then
asks why it's called what its called and
from this finds out more about the subject; ifs up to them. Ifs a fine-line between preaching and informing. Ifs delicate, but I believe Muslimgauze handle it
Being located two continents away from
your subject matter, why do you find it
your duty to call the shots versus a native
performer?
Being two continents away is irrelevant,
a wrong is a wrong. An influence transcends boundaries on a map.
Has your two wrongs make a right stance
been altered in anyway with the I RA bombing in early December in Manchester?
It is wrong to call the P.LO. "terrorists."
They are not terrorists. The people of
Palestine have chosen the P.LO. to represent them. Over the last ten years or
so, the P.LO. have taken a stance of
peace to comply with world opinion to
help settle the West Bank / Gaza occupation. To date this has failed due to Israeli
instrasigence and stupidity. One day they
will have to leave, one way or another. It
would seem a return to other means is
necessary to force a change. To group
the P.LO. with un-educated idiots like
the I.R.A. is stupid. The P.LO. are needed
the I. R.A. are not. They prolong and make
the situation worse.
Is there such a thing as a terrorist?
Whafs the difference between a terrorist and a nationalist? Can a line be drawn
between national liberation movements
and what Jonathan Bearman refers to in
his book Qadhafi's Libya, as "blatant
interference in the domestic affairs of
other states" and/or terrorist
adventurism?
Views of what constitutes a terrorist
nationalist/freedom fighter is based on a
personal perspective. If s not up to me to
instruct people which way to think. Anybody with an open mind can see that the
people of Palestine have the right to
regain land stolen from them by any
means they feel is necessary. The world
can see that they have followed a road of
peace by trying to talk. The time of UN
resolutions / American vetoes, etc., is
over. It would seem direct action, now,
by a United Arab world is the next step.
America will, of course, continue to support the world's most vie regime of
Zionist zealots. This false country has
committed the most violations of human
rights, yet America props it up with the
vast sums of dollars/military back-up
and UN support In the same breath it
condemns Iraq/China, etc.The hypocrisy of the West is stomach-churning.
What function do you think noise, like
that performed by Extreme labelmates
Merzbow or deathmetal, serves?
Noise as part of a finished piece is useful;
as the only element ifs like deathmetal:
Do you receive letters of support from
the Palestinian community?
Muslimgauze do not seek out pats on the
back for what the band does. I should
think that Palestinians have a life struggle on their hands, so seeking out a
globalise speaking unknown Mancunian
is low on priority.
One of your earlier records was entitled
Abu Hidil. Do you feel his death has set
"the cause" back many years?
World news has been very useful in showing the true face of Zionism. Pictures of
the deportees in no-man's land are very
important to worid opinion which, up to a
few years ago, always sided with the
occupation forces. This is changing. When
the deportees are returned I sr ael's hand
will be weaker. Arab Palestine, instead of
what the map calls Israel, will be closer
and world peace a step closer. America is

lateral Development Banks:
Their Role in Destroying the
Global Environment," Bruce
Rich claims: "With the extinction of each indigenous group,
the world loses millennia of
accumulated knowledge about
life in, and adaptation to tropical ecosystems. This priceless
information is forfeited with
hardly a blink ofthe eye: the
march of development cannot
wait long enough to find out
what it is destroying." Furthermore, Rich suggests the
cure for AIDS slips away as
each yard of tropical rainforest is bulldozed and denuded.
In regards to the Technocracy
motto: "Science Built
Civilization...Science Must
Save Civilization."'doyou think
the cure for AIDS lies in the
medicinal properties of rainforest flora or will the development of a cure be laboratory-based?
The world is overpopulated. For
this reason medical research has
to cater to billions of people.
With a smaller population it
would be easier to focus this
research on problems such as
AIDS. AIDS is a scientific question that must and wiU be solved.
The efforts of AIDS research
will, in a market society, only
correspond tothepotential money
that can be gained out of it. For
this reason these efforts wiU not
be overwhelming since there is
not much to gain. The technocratic mind works differently: if
there is a scientific problem it
must be solved by all means.
What makes Stuttgart "The
Technology Capitol"?
Stuttgart is basically the home
of Mercedes-Benz and aU of its
sub-companies. Mercedes is not
only the inventor of the car, as
such, it is also the heart of German technical innovation. The
reason to be active here is to
access influential people in this

Consumer surveys indicate a
"turning back" to a more
wholesome, more natural state
in terms of herbal medicines,
vegetarian diets, exercise and
physical fitness. Do you feel
there is a growing suspicion of
modern science? Do you see
more people becoming involved
in the Technocracy movement?
Turning back to nature doesn't
conflict with Technocracy's
ideas. As the Monad Symbol
(Yin & Yang) expresses, it is
Technocracy's intention to find
a harmony between nature and
technology. Destructive technologies are an outgrowth of
capitalism, not of technologies
as such. More people are already involved in Technocracy
because the new generation of
Technocrats are turning away from
the old dogmatic ways that are
still present with the old generation of Technocrats.

hilarious becausepopular music, in all kinds of
forms, is somediing we consume out of speakers, which is, first of all, technology. You
compose and reproduce your music through
electrical devices, so it is pretty hilarious to say
there are no samples on this record, especially
if you write this down on a CD. It's totally
hilarious. I don'tsee die point. I dosee die point

a great record, but I think the actual master

What prompted you to come up with
that concept? ^&'*'^__-**'
Before we went to the recording studio to
actually record that record, we went scouting for new sound possibilities. We made
up the first new brass instrument, no percussion instrument but somediing to blow
in: ft constructed pipe you can blow with
t^fitBTmouth. That instrument was nick-:

spun off the whole concept about doing that
record. That's all diere is to it.
I was looking at the new record and I was
interested in a segment called "Field of
Tombs." What is t_ai about?
It is a battle painting. The whole song
"Healdeaner" isabattle painting. The "Field
of Tombs" is a graveyard of past ideas—the
past way. Joan Baez appears in it as well
[laughs]. The phantasmagorian!
Ideas tliat passed. I did conceive this
as a batde painting. I did a drawing of the

date sometime around June 1 st. My first show was "Random Insomnia"; my latest and last is "Entertainment" (every Wednesday, 9pm-Midnight). Ten
years of Campus Radio is enough.
The countdown is my way of saying "So long, thanks for the fish." It began November 11th, last Remembrance Day (no, this is not nostalgia!).
My scientific method for compiling the list was to consider every song ever written except: a) songs which have been us ad in TV commercials; b) songs
I am sick of; and c) songs I have never heard. So cast aside your preconceptions, murder your dogma and understand that Neil Diamond and Ice Cube
do both exist in the same Universe. Expect to hear your TOP 20 favorite songs of all time, as chosen by me, Wednesday, June 16th (9pm-midnight),
the last installment of the "Entertainment" program, ever. By the way, this is only the bottom half of the list, expect the conclusion to it in the July issue
of Discorder.

.Ah, the rock V roll
lifestyle:hangin' witliMalhavoc.
Malhavoc        hail from
Scarborough, Ontario, but don't
hold tliat against them. Malhavoc
are a blend of metal and industrial, with a measure of horror
and social relevance thrown in
for good measure; a band for
those who don't fit in.
When I was invited to dinner by James Cavaluzzo, the very
friendly and chatty frontman (lie
can't help it, lie's got Italianblood)
for Malhavoc and hopped into
their rental van, I met tlie rest of
the gang: Dave (guitarist), Steve
(bassist), John (drummer), Josh
(sound guy) and Jason (video
guy). Everybody was immediately excited by my Einsturzende
Neubauten t-shirt and the fact
that I interviewed tlie imposing
Blixa. James began by making
the point that sometimes it's not
a good idea to meet people you
admire, in case they turn out to
be assholes, and that he'd like to
keep personalities separate from
Malhavoc's music. The irony being that Malhavoc is bound up in
James' feelings about the world.
Fittingly, we wound up at
the Granville Book Emporium,
where everybody made a bee-
line for the horror books. James
was particularly knowledgeable
in this area, looking with a practiced eye for first editions and
giving enthused recommendations, even though Steve usually
disagreed with him. Most of the
gang left with books and comics
in the trail of Kevin Kane (yep,
that charmingly eccentric Grapes
of Wrath-er who freely admits
that being friends with a metal
band is a tad odd), to La Quena
Coffeehouse, that bastion of poUtical correctness. Amid plates
of burritos, enchiladas, rice and
beans and much laughter, we
tried to conduct a ser
Malhavoc's newest release,
PremeditatedMurder, for Epidemic
claims to "not be about senseless
violence but tlie internal struggle to
find peace." Although the lyrics are
violent/about violence, they are
written from a first-person
perspective to provoke people into
thinking about the meaning of
violence.
"It's closeminde," declares
Steve of the Toronto music scene,
"if you say you're industrial, or whatever, they immediately pigeonhole
you." I, therefore, had to break the
bad news to them that they couldn't
be industrial death rockers because
they're not all 6'5".
"That's why we're a metal
band," jokes James, "because we're
short, well, maybe average." An
outsider in school with short hair,
instead of the obligatory long
hair, James wasn't cool and
"wanted to make music for the
nerds wholiked music more than
personalities." While working in
his basement with a four-track
he found the levels weren't loud
enough, so he used a distortion
pedal to crank the levels up and
liked what it did to his vocals. He
did this without having heard
Skinny Puppy's distorted vocalist, Ogre, though Malhavoc
doesn't mind the Puppy and Ministry comparisons if it makes
more people aware of them.
And making more people
aware of them could be a big
problem as Malhavoc are
currently suffering from the
Negativland syndrome. Their
distributor, Epidemic, is "being
sued by Atco because we
sampled the Rolling Stones," explains James. "Tliis is how bad it
is in Toronto: a girlfriend of a
rival band brought it to Atco's
attention. Royalties from this
album will probably go to the
Stones. Tlie ironic tiling ia that
die song is about bands, like the
Rolling Stones, who won't give
new bands a chance because they
want to be number onej' If tlie
worst does happen, Malhavoc
see it as good publicity, a la
Negativland.
Surrealistically, a Mao Tse
Tung tribute started at La Quena, so
we high-tailed it to the New York
Theatre. There we waited i n the foyer
while James busily chatted with
fans—his unpretentiousness is pretty
refreshing. Finally, the show: Due
to a lack of funcLs, John was reduced
to pi ay i ng percussion over a recorded
drum track wliile Dave and Steve do
die metal guitar diing and James,
well, James goes insane. He wears
kneepads for a good reason! He
stomps, he jumps and, yes, he does
carve a pentagram on his chest.
Malhavoc will be back in
August, so don't miss 'em because
diey are awesome. And how many
bands would phone to say
"Goodbye" fifty minutes before their
plane left, while dealing with luggage
JUNE   g) Yo, it's "Future Rap" once again!
It's been a very busy coupla
months for rap releases and what
with the summer comin' up I
might not be able to cover everything in this issue. Cuttin' straight
to tha chase, DJ Soundwar
Chapter III came off slammin'
and Chapter IV is planned for
April 29 and 30,1994. Peace out
2 all the competitors and everyone who showed up to watch, see
you next year!
The first release to get tha
breakdown this month is Above
24 E^^UA_T__f;l
The Law's new one, BlackMa-
fia Life (Ruthless/Giant). With a
record label move Cold 187,
KM'G, Total K-oss and Go Mack
have given themselves more freedom and it shows. However,
they've eased up on dissin' tha
bitches in exchange for tales 'bout
the higher level dope game and
super funk-crazy tracks like
"Pimp Clime," "Harda U R Tha
Doppa U Fall" and "Never
Missin' A Beat" M.C. Ren makes
a guest appearance on "Process
of Elimination" as do Eazy-E on
"Game Wreck-oniz-IZ Game"
and 2Pac and Money B of Digital
Underground on "Call It What U
Want." Overall, this i
a solid album and the best that
Above The Law has done to date.
Next up is album number
four from the Geto Boys, Till
Death Do Us Part (Rap-A-Lot/
Priority) is one more from and
about the lives of the 5th Ward
brothers from deep in the Hou-
n, Texas ghetto. It seems Willie
S. is out for good 'cuz Scarface
and Bushwick Bill have recruited
Big Mike Dean from the Convicts to fill the spot. This brother
is an alright rapper and plays a
in guitar and bass. Musically,
this album has
withBuhwick's soloalbum, with
the gumbo funk and hve
mentsin full effect. "Bring It On"
is an epic-length track featuring
s of Rap-A-Lot
of whom will have their albums
comin' out soon, plus the few
killer tracks and the usual
tracks from Bushwick Bill helps
Till Death Us Part kick the ass of
86% of all the other albums out
there.   Check
"G.E.T.O.,"  "It Ain't,"  and
"Crooked Officer" for the flow.
If you've seen the movie
you'll want the soundtrack. CB4
(MCA) starts off with a P.E.S.A.
(Public Enemy Service Announcement) from Chuck D on
the importance of hardcore rap
(you know it!) and kicks into
"Livin' In a Zoo" by Public
Enemy. "Black Cop" is up next
by BDP and it's the strongest
track on this CD, by my stand
ards. There are also strong tracks
from M.C. Ren, Hurricane with
the Beastie Boys, Fu-
Sch n ic kens and Parental Advisory. There are also three
tracks by CB4 (vocals by
Daddy-O. Hi-C and Kool Moe
Dee) which are pretty hilarious,
including their version of "Rapper's Delight," the best comedy
rap track I've ever heard.
Making the transition from
comedy ofthe light sense to comedy ofthe hardcore gangsta sense,
Tim Dog's Do or Die
(Ruffhouse/Columbia) has just
come out. As an album it doesn't
flow as well as his last one, but
this one is gonna have the crazy,
dope singles on the level of "I Get
Wrecked," which he did with
KRS1. The opening track, "I
Don't Give a Fuck," is a good
example of what tha Dog's all
about— fuck sellout rap 'cause
its takin' money away from the
real hardcore rappers that are trying to say and accomplish something. But Dog also throws it
down in a way that you can laugh
at. Word up! The Ultramagnetic' s
TR Love and Moe have helped
out with production on "I Get Wrecked," as did new producers
Maurice Mo' Gallegos, Ray Roll
and DJ Touch for "Grab your
Gat." But other than that, Tim
Dog produced this one. Hardcore
rap will never die!
Jumpin' to tha west coast,
we got Dr. Dre's release. The
Chronic (Deathrow/Interscope).
His brilliant production comes
thru once again making this an
album that should sell well. And
he did it with practically no samples. He has learned, however,
how to do his own Parliament- ish
keyboard fines, and he's learned
to do them well. On tha rap tip, he
gets a lot of help from Death Row
Inmates' Snoopy Dog, The
D.O.C., Kurupt, Jewell, That
Nigga Day, Rage and RBX. In
fact, Dr. Dre wrote very litde of
the raps, but that's alright by me
'causehe'scomin' off somethin'
wicked. Check out "Stranded On
Death Row," for an absolutely
classic cameo by Bushwick Bill,
and "The Roach": a parody of
Parliament's "P. Funk (Wants To
Get Fucked Up)," which Ice Cube
parodied on his last album as
well. The first three tracks are so
Parliament influenced that they
could be straight outta George
Clinton'snextalbum, but the high
point on this album has got to be
the two tracks "The Day The
Niggaz Took Over" and "Nuthin'
But A 'G' Thang." Who's the
man with the master plan?
WeU, it sure ain't H, the
man from Toronto rap group
H.D. V., as his 2nd release, Higher
Deeper Values (Isba), proves.
He's talkin'   'bout pimpin',
mackin', niggaz, bitches anddollaz
as if there was no tomorrow, but the
way he throws down just ain't
funky. He's talkin' this shit like
he's never heard of N.W.A., Ice
Cube or Too Short before, and although he's got the ideas he doesn't
know how to express himself; he
just doesn't put his heart into it. The
productiondoesn'thelpeither. It's
enough to make it very hard to
listen to more than a coupla times.
Anyways "Out Fa Ya Money" and
"Act Down Packed" are two of the
better tracks on this release.
Gettin' back to a real
mothafuckin' rapper, Ice-T hasjust
dropped his fifth album, Home Invasion (Rhyme Syndicate/Priority).
Similarly, Warner records had problems with distributing this album,
and Ice wouldn't bend, so they
dropped him. Now he's doin' it
himself with distribution help from
Priority. I' ve got no problems with
this album as it's full of G-style
raps and beats with no bullshit in
between. He's got sumthin' ta say
so check it out. "It's On," "Watch
The Ice Break," "Race War," "I
Ain't New Ta This" and "Gotta
Lotta Love" stand out Produced by
DJ Aladdin, SU and Ice-T, this is
hardcore so I ain't gotta say no
Anotha' brotha' who's had
record company problems is Paris.
Simply, Warner (again!) paid him
off and ripped up thecontract when
they heard his new album, Sleeping
With TheEnemyi Scarface). So what
did Paris do? He took the loot, set
up Scarface records for real and
released his album independendy.
So if you've taped this album from
B-Boy" are also worth checkin'
out as are all the crazy, blunted
jazz inter-song skits. Phar-out!
Now Madkap also do the crazy
jazz skits and smoke generous
of the herb, buttheir shit
off as being a bit more
hardcore. Tracks to check
freely, these guys throw down
with some amazing jams. Check
out "Everything's Everythin,"
"Cornbread" and "Respect Due."
This month I'll finish things
well thought
out. Sleeping With
The Enemy
really
works as a
whole: all
the skits really hold the
songs together, producing a ride
through the mind of P-Dog as he
has been thinking for the last year.
Quickly reviewing the new
Young Black Teenagers release, DeadEnzKidzDoin'Life-
time Bidz (S.O.U.LVMca), itdoes
the same for me as the last one:
nothing! With the beats being
hooked up, for the most part, by
Keith Shocklee and Gary G-Wiz
you would think that atleast some
Pharcyde with their Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde (Delicious Vinyl). These four guys
appeared on the Brand New Heavies' Heavy Rhyme Experience,
Vol. I with "Soulflower," which
has been given a radical reworking before appearing on this re-
leaseas well. Rightnow, "Passin'
Me By" is tha hit that it should be
but "Officer" and "Return of The
outon Look Ma
Duke, No Hands (RCA) are
"Phuck What Ya Heard," "Here
Comes The Break" and "Da
Whole Kit and Kaboodle." Completing the trio are the Freestyle
Fellowship with their album
Innercity Grits (4th B'Way).
Again, down the same multiple
rapper vein with da bud flowin'
lha
with
Naughty  By  Nature's
Naughty HI (Tommy Boy/Isba)
and Double XX Posse's Put
Ya Boots On (Big
Beat). What I like
about N.B.N, is their
knack for creatin' the
crazy hits (like "Hip
Hop Hooray" which
everybody in the hip-hop
universe has heard of) and
still keepin' it hardcore
and true to the street. Props
out! "Ready ForDem" and
"The Hood Comes First"
are another couple wicked
tracks worth your attention.
Now I had a feelin' that this
Double XX Posse disc was
gonna be good to my earhole
from the first time I heard it
and I was right! Hard to tha
:omin' on strong with
tha funk. The tide track, "The
Headcracker," "The Pure
Thing," "Not Gonna Be Able
To Do It" and "We Got It Goin'
On" are all top grade and worth
the ducats if you like your shit
that way. Ain't no future in
frontin'!
Yo, with all these crazy
styles comin' out I gotta check
myself and hold up on pickin' a
Rapper of the Month. So peace
out to the whole hip-hop nation,
especially the local scene—DJ
Soundwar Chapter III was dope
and it was because of you. Seeya.

Yea, DJ Soundwar Chapter
III CiTR's rap, dance and street
art competition, came off as the
best yet, as everybody who attended it knows. The event officially kicked off on Thursday,
April 22 with a spraycan art slide
show, presented by Jeff Prigoff
at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Based in L.A., Mr. Prigoff has
been documenting graffiti for
decades, making his showing of
pieces from around the world to
a packed house the perfect launch
to what would
prove to be the
most successful
and highly at-
tended
Soundwar yet!.
TheDJ,
MC and Dancer
competitions
were held at the
SUB Ballroom
on the U.B.C.
campus on Friday, to an audience of about
600 people. Hype beats, wicked
flow, cuttin tha cut tha fuck up
and. dope moves from the dance
crews wuz the joint for the night
as 27 MCs, 10 DJs, and 3 dance
crews took it to the nitty gritty.
After 6 hours of tuff competition.
and an appearance by L.A. rap
group Funkdoobiest, the winners
were as follows: Chill Blend from
Portland and B-Mello from Seattle took the 1st and 2nd prizes in
the DJ category, Preach 'n' Teach
(Seattle) took Best Dance Group
followed by Point Blank Floor
Rockers (Seattle), and Renegade
from Portland beat out MC Cook
from Tacoma for the top MC
position.
Things started up again on
Saturday at 6 PM to determine
the best group in the North-West,
with a total of 22 groups performing to another packed house.
After everyone had dropped their
bomb and let the funk flow,
rappin' over wicked-ass beats,
seven groups were chosen to go
for another round. These hardcore
survivors included Secshun-8,
Twenty-Twenty, Terror T, Da
C.I.A. Kru, Six In
The Clip, Soul
Rhythm Soldiers
and Checka Du
Styl'z. Stiff competition ofthe brightest degree ensued
with a showdown
from the best ofthe
underground, with
Soul Rhythm Soldiers (Portland)
clai
Styl'z pulling in second.
The winners ofthe Spraycan
competition, which had also been
going down during the two day
event were also decided. It came
off with Z-Lok in first and Neos
tying with Virys & Dedos (all
from Vancouver) for second
place. All in all, if you're into da
hip-hop thang, you would have
been in heaven at this competition. Peace out to all competitors and spectators, and be on
the lookout for Chapter IV, happening in the end of April, 1994.

Wow, another month, another column, and still it's a race to meet the
deadline. If you're reading this, obviously, we made it. Hopefully we
* will one day be able to deliver the
goods on time, saving stress for us
and our editor. The last month was
a busy one; with lots of shows and
reviews little time and space was
left over to dedicate to such column
writing, but here it is...

XXX, #1
Sort of like a joke with no punch
line. I thinkXXX is just trying to stir
up some shit in this stale scene, but
it works. However, I think a lot
^ more can be accomplished for
straight-edge than by slogan
screaming and hard stances. What
happened to a positive mental outlook? (No address, no names. I
wonder why?)
All The Rage, #3
ft It suprises me how similar yet dif
ferent the punk and metal scene can
be. Total do-it-yourself: hand writ
ten and drawn. A lot of effort and
time was involved but it seems to
just glorify each band and never
criticize. At times it seems like the
content is word for word out of
some metal magazine or band bio.
If this was punk it would just slag
all the bands, sorta like Discorder.

Weird. This is a Morrissey-type

the obsessive fascination with
Morrissey clone band Suede but
none of the content comes off as
pretentious. Kind of "like it or leave

BUNYON, #1
A collection of meanderings from

Bunyon's oddball wanderings range
from being quite entertaining (especially the comics and the interview with an old drunk) to being
somewhat boring. Portions of tlie
'zine tend to be entirely too self-
referential and incestuous, consisting mostly of in-jokehumouramong
Rob's circle of friends. Still, it's
definitely an admirable addition to
what is becoming an increasingly
diverse Vancouver'zine scene. ($2,

LOSER REVIEWS
Jeff Stang - demo
I am left to assume that this is a one-
man band—nothing more than the
cassette tape and song list were included. My advice to the artist is to
read the above paragraph on packaging. My dear friend Wozzle says
this tape reminds him of an 80s pop
compilation. I can agree with that
but I'm still wondering which one?
Rock 811 Rock 821 Lefj go widi

Heatmiser - demo
On the first listen 1 was saying
"Yeah!" Agreat rotor ding wilh solid
songs, feedback and vocals lhat remind me of The Tlie in the way that
they set an eerie mood—al most suicidal at times. Overall, a formula
that could be quite accessible for
college radio play. Really memorable and quite original. Surprising!
Now I'm curious to see diem live.

The Ragged Rich - demo
Grassroots, jangly, acoustic country
soul-pop. This kind of steps beyond
my taste but I can respect the time,
sincerity and soul invested in it. Stuff
like tlie Skydiggers comes to mind.
(20103-49A Ave., langley, B.C.

Hardluck - demo
Metal. Not any hybrid of metal, just
metal with a bit of groove. I dunno?
Living Color radio songs with more
predictability. Good recording but
I'm not the best person to judge.

Noggin - Word is a 4 letter fuck
Noggin is a 6-letter word for two
messed up people. Do you remember those Tom <_ Jerry cartoons that
had no voices but just weird sounds
and noizes? O.K, try that, but on
acid. Seriously, weird violin and a
guitar making noizes we never could
have imagined. We couldn't have
expected this one. (Gritty Kitty
Records, P.O. Box 5145,
Bellingham, WA 98227 U.S.A.)
Honey - Unpasturized
Distorted, fuzzed-out guitars that
jangle at times like Galaxie 500 and
Das Damen at others. The vocals are
more hke emotional "sounds" than
they are lyrics: mumblings wliich
aren'ttooeasy lo understand. It kind
of grows on you but some of the
songs are a bit too long. Mellow.

BOVINE PROPHETS RECORDS  P.O. BOX 5738 KENT, WA 98064 It was six months ago when a friend came
to me with the idea of doing a benefit for
the Rape Crisis Centre/W.A.V.A.W..
Over the course of a few conversations,
one all-ages show expanded into a full
weekend. For a while other commitments
kept us from getting started but in March,
the idea began to come together. Word
spread quickly and soon we were booking bands and speakers from Vancouver)
Victoria, Alberta, Seattle and Olympu
Rumours were even circulating that Bikini Kill would come up(ahem). It

Soon the benefit had expanded ti
accommodate fifteen bands, four w(
en's groups and three speakers. Sean
Darren from Stovebolt were given permission to do tlie t-shirt silk screening fc
free, Kreviss added another show to ac
commodate the bands from Olympia
couldn't be fit into the already tightl;
scheduled three shows, Strain lent equi[
ment to the out of town bands on Saturda;
night, and Gest Quest Co-op lent tht
benefit the money to rent the Friday venue. The generosity and support was amazing.
The night of 13th I lay in b
envisioning a weekend of beautiful mi
sic, colossal audiences and a general c<
maraderie among a diverse crowd; com-* j
munication in unity, everyone there for •
tlie same reason. Of course, I also imag-j»g
ined the cheers from the crowd as I an- 8
nounced die next band, my face on the 8
cover of the Province and, yes, that YTV ||
Achievement Award I've coveted forfl
many years. As it turned out, my opti-1
mism was realistic: the music was beau- M
tiful, attendance wasquitegood and,aside 1
form a few minor conflicts, everyone got I
along. The local bands like Stovebolt, S
Kreviss and Strain were really supportive ■
and it was great to have such regional 9
participation.
Even widi the stress and long dis- 9
tance phone bills that had meeatingNerds If
and sidewalk bubble gum, it was totally 8j
worth it We raised over $750 , after I

The Fluid
Poster Children
Brand New Unit
Town Pump
Saturday, May 15
It's been almost four years that
The Fluid have been absent from
the public eye. On a smaller and
much quieter level they played to
humbling crowds across
America, recorded a couple albums worth of new material, and
ran into the delaying blockade of
finding a mutually beneficial label to release said material. In
that time the closest they got to
Vancouver was Seattle, they
found common-ground with the
Hollywood Records label, and
they didn't change a thing.
Integrity intact, The Fluid
e given the warm, but small,
reception they were deserved of.
Concerning  themselves
with familiarizing
cover from that initial set-back,
but this is where The Fluid's tour-
smarts payed off: they quickly
swaddled the straying crowd in a
swirl of elusive garage-pop hits.
"Black Glove," "Our Love Will
Still Be There" and "Candy" reminded us all that not just any
band can play at irritatingly loud
decibels and have their audience
enjoy it—The Fluid can!

The Cows
Janitor Joe
Gus
The Dugout
Tuesday, May 18
I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this show.
After listening to some mediocre
records, and reading obnoxious
bios, the Cows just weren' t at the
top of my list of things to get
excited about. Actually, they
weren't even on the list.
Gus opened the evening
about an hour before sunset. As
such, only a fortunate twelve were
yet in attendance. Nevertheless,
they came through with 25 minutes of simple, straight-forward
loudness. One song was reminiscent of Pink Floyds "Astronomy
Domine," mainly because they
sounded the same. Anyway, they
were entertaining enough. Keep
an eye out for these guys.
Janitor Joe did absolutely
nothing for me. They play ed with-
out emotion and I couldn't understand any ofthe lyrics. As my
grandmother likes to say about
bad polkas:  "It all sounds the
ie." I got the feeling
I could have s
through a power-charged 45-
minute set, highlighted by the
title song of the new album, and
the ever-obscure "39 Lashes."
Axe-man Thor Eisentrager spent
the evening serenading his amp,
drummer Norm Rogers provided
a powerful backdrop, and bassist
Kevin Rutmanis displayed an incredible talent for drooling uncontrollably. Most importantly,
these guys rocked.
As you can tell, I'm not
much for comparison. That's
good, because these guys sound
like themselves: natural, aggressive, forthright. After 6 years and
9 releases, the Cows should consider moving on to greener pastures. As their bio states, they are
progressing from the top of the
bottom ofthe heap, to the bottom
of the top. A big step would be
opening for 35 people at a club,
instead of headlining a garage for
30. Sure, it is the coolest garage
in the world, but it's probably
time to see if they can do better.

Grant Lee Buffalo
Commodore Ballroom
Wednesday, May 19
Three bands. Guy at the door
checks the guest list three times
to find my name. I walk in and
catch the last three minutes of
Grant Lee Buffalo (a band with
three words in their name) pounding out an impassioned three-
chord rock song. Grant Lee Buffalo have three       band i
crowd to the
songs from their newest release,
Purplemetalflakemusic, The
Fluid stumbled out of the gates
with a frighteningly loud set. Although their start was weak, slow,
and in danger of back-firing on
the band, they managed to absorb
the musical speedbumps and use
that momentum to kick out a solid
hour or rock et roll. Most bands
>uld not have been able to re-
anywhere,
any time. That's not a good
thing. One word sums up Janitor
Joe's set: whatever.
The main event. Formed in
1987, Minneapolis' Cows have
released an assortment of vinyl
and CDs to mixed reviews. Touring in support of their latest release, Sexy Pee Story, the Cows
turned in a pretty good effort.
Resplendent in a triple-breasted
body suit and multiple artificial
tracheotomies, frontman Shannon Salsberg took the group
Pond were loud,
really loud. I thought Pond \
supposed to be a pop band, like
die Posies or somediing, but they
ended up rocking pretty hard and
the crowd seemed to really dig
them. I couldn't decide if I dug
them or if I wished diey were
more like the pop band I'd imagined diem to be.
Funny enough, Sugar had
three band members and were
really loud. I was beginning to
notice a pattern forming. Bob and
friends did three acoustic numbers and then went back to the
loud rock thang.
So was th is a good concert?
Does Bob Mould have a nasal
voice? Is a marginal amount of
charisma sufficient to make loud
white noise interesting? Does a
good record mean a good live
show? Should Grant Hart start a
band called Salt?

Wednesday, May 19
It was an evening of firsts. My
first Stateside gig, my first date
with Paul, and my first Rocket
From The Crypt show. The Bellingham Bay Brewing Co., affectionately known by the locals as
the 3B, as far as bars go, is a great
venue. I' ve been there before but
never at night, and never with a
vanload of Discorder personalities. The stage is located in such
a way that there isn't a bad seat in
the house, and both Clawhammer
and Rocket made full use of this,
pleasing the crowd with every
selection. I expected the blistering performance that Rocket
dished out, but I had no idea that
Clawhammer were going to hit
the stage with such power—let's
hope they can capture their potential in the studio one day. The
sound was a litde weak but when
I'm only spending spending eight
bucks for a pitcher of Newcasde
Brown Ale and a bag of chips you
won'tcatchmecomplaining. The
venue was good, the show was
good, and Paul...? How does that
Meadoaf song go again?

Thursday, May 20
Well. I don't say it to all of the
boys, but then most of themdon't
look as good as Justin does after
a couple cool pints of Red Hook.
So a second date was scheduled. Not by the dashboard lights
but in the comfort of our own
country where, as Justin says, "I
can enjoy the freedom of honking, swearing, and throwing the
finger at someone in heavy traffic and not worry about getting
shot." Not that Bellingham is a
hub for gang-related activity,
homicide and violent crime, but
a mecca for cross- border smu g-
gling, boodeg purchases of music for minors and various other
misdemeanors it is.
Coincidentally, all the bands
on this evening's roster were
American. Their crimes: thieves
to The Mighty Flame of Rock 'n'
Roll from the unrightful owner,
Greta. Their punishment: the
riches and spoils of this world's

Paul t. Brooks Superconductor
Smugglers
Station Street
Friday, April 30
& Watching this show was about as
much fun as aruptured appendix.
The Smuggler's big send-off gig
before their big tour was lousy.
True, the fact that lead singer
Grant was sick explains his limp,
uninspired performance. Also
true, the fact that the Smugglers
9 were only earning about two
clams for the show explains then-
lack of enthusiasm. But I suspect
there must have been other undisclosed reasons for the ennui
because in all the times I' ve seen
the band this was the first time
they were disappointing. Hope-
™ fully they haven't lost whatever
they had that made them what
they were.
Superconductor were just
plain boring, cranking out their
noise behind a wall of amps.
Guitarist Pat Hogue expressed
Q      his embarrasment afterward when
I told him I had to wii
by crying, "Oh, no! Don't! Well,
okay, do. The people need to know
[how much the band sucked]."
To be fair, the Station Street
venue is an odd place for any
band to play since it's designed
% for theatre productions and
doesn't encourge audience-
when I was a youngster all-ages
shows were good things. It's
embarassing to have bands travel
great distances to- play to NOBODY. Bad form, Vancouver!
Anyway, showing up at 8:00
which turned out to be an hour
too early because Edmonton's
Guy Smiley faded to show.
Eventually, Toronto's
Leather Uppers took the stage,
and take it they did! Clad in orange outfits that would have made
Nardwuar envious, this wonderfully goofy duo rawked out in
classic three-chord style. I'm still
not sure what these guys are all
about but I do know that they're
comitted to good ol' Canadian
fun. At last, the void left by Deja
Voodoo's dissolution seems to
have been filled.
Next up was Scrub from
San Francisco. This is a group of
super nice guys who lay out one
hell of a heavy sound: Helmet
meets Soundgarden would be an
apt, if unimaginative, way of describing their musical style. At
times plodding, at other times
frenetic, Scrub oscillates between
hypnotic pacing and emancipating release. Tight and ki

The only
that could have improved the
evening would have been a

commended for maintaining their
enthusiasm in the face of such
emptiness. Hopefully this review
will improve their reception in

Living Colour

Sunday, May 2
Having seen Living Colour play
the Commodore a couple of years
ago, I was expecting one butt-
kicker of a concert this time
'round. I mean, these guys are
killer musicians both individually and as a band, making the
event somewhat awe-striking for
any aspiring musician. With material drawn from Stain, their latest, and certainly most heavy slab
o' sUicon to date, plus Time's Up
and Vivid, Living Colour showed
how music and mosh-inciting
grooves should be the
centerpoints of any performance.
And this was a great perform-
Among die many guitar heroes of this era, few can compare
to Vemon Reid. His inventive,
melodic, often screamingly fast
shredding is enough to blow this
writer's brain, and was best demonstrated on tunes like "Love
Rears its Ugly Head" and "Cult
of Personality." New bass istDoug
Wimbish was equally impressive
on 5 and 12 string bass, but I still
don't see why he would have
turned down that mega-bucks
offer to join the Rolling Stones.
Artistic control? Bah. Along with
drummer Will Calhoun, they held
downoneof the tightest, funkiest
rhythm sections that I've ever
heard. Singer Corey Glover also
had great stage presence and
strong vocals, highlighted on
"Vivid" and "Middle Man."
Unfortunately,  the band
only played for 75 n
utes! And could
hardly hear it in the upper registers during some of burnin'
Vernon's fiercest solos.
Openers Bad Brains
sounded pretty good too but I
hadn't really heard them before,
so it was quite new for me. Nevertheless, they managed to shake

lead-off to performances of older
stuff, such as "Hausder Luege"

Saturday, May 8
I was really excited about this
gig, apdy described as an "all-
headliner" show by the frontman
for Crackerbash. Sicko didn't
thrill me that much but a reliable
ear who was also diere was enthralled so you should go by his
opinion. I've since heard their
demo, which was really good,
and they obviously have their
strengths. Sinister Six were
garagey, old-school and had attitude (good). I loved their sound.
Kill Sybil, however, really started
the evening. From here on in all
the bands had stage presence to
spare and rocked! As anodier
friend said, "They have some
good songs and during the ones
thataren't[thatgood] they're still
interesting to watch."
Up next were the Meices.
The fact that a good half of the
people at the club were band
members of some sort led to an
interesting living-room kind of
feel—I felt like I'd stumbled into
aprivate but very party—and also
made for inside jokes. The Meices
were introduced as the Crinkles,
which probably didn't confuse
those people in the know but had
me wondering for a while. Anyhow, the Meices were fab! After
the guitarist jumped into the air
like a rocket and broke a few
strings, people were hap-hap-
happy! I tried to buy a t-shirt but
the merchandise had been spirited away by the time I got back
from the bank machine. Hint:
"Don't Let the Soap Run Out" is
a great song to sing in the shower.
Zipgun followed up with a
tight, loud set. For some reason it
seemed a litde nondescript and
didn't enthrall me the way the
Meices or Crackerbash did. Too

Peter
(Murderecords/Cargo)
Okay, now let's get real folks. Ifyou
bought this disc expecting six great
songs from a hot new band from the
Maritimes, you probably feel just a
Uttle ripped off that it's just poor
four-track recordings from a garage
band? Sure you'll probably sit there
and tell your friends, "Oh, it gives it
that raw sound," or "It's their style,"
or some bullshit comment hke that,
but deep down inside you probably
feel hke a total schlub for falling for
the press hype (or worse yet, your
flavour of the month, Sloan, said
they Uke them so they must be good),
and dishing out $ 12 for Peter. So, if
you are considering buying it, be-
Ueve this hype: prepare thyself
before buying.
Time and time again us
scenesters are duped into buying
sub-par recordings by hip bands,
more often than not because we
want to be cutting edge. Now I've
seen Eric's Trip Uve and they are
mammothly great; their music is
pretty close to Sonic Youth but the
vocals are top notch and they write
a mean tune. These guys will be
(and deserve to be) monstrous. The
tunes on the EP, once you've been
able to decipher them, are great (except for "Tangles," which is a mess).
And once they record them the way
they should be, youshouldbuy them.
This EP would be O.K. if
you'd bought it as a 7-inch put out
by the band itself because they were
trying to get heard somewhere other
than Moncton. But this band is set
with the drooling press and a Sub
Pop contract. Putting this out on CD
with a pretty cover seems like just a
cheap way to bilk you for money
until the better stuff comes out. This
is only worth putting up with if they
don't re-record the good songs— if
they don't, they're wasting them.

(Virgin/A&M)

This trio of chicks from the
land ofthe rising sun blend elements
of 50's pop/rock ("Cycling Is Fun"),
60's surf bands ("Milky Way"), and
70's punk ("Bear Up Bison,"
"Antonio B aka Guy"), then immerse
the whole kit'n'kaboodle in bright,
icky-sticky, gooey good fun. Do not
mistake these girls for artists who
enjoy change. Although I like them
too much to dust them off as a
gimmick band, I will say they have
found their angle and extract
maximum value from it.
Don't expect to find any socio-
polical angst or heart-felt emotion
here folks (just 'cuz Kurt Cobain
likes em...sheesh!), if that's what
you're looking for then this is not
your cup of saki (to be fair "Ah,
Singapore" and "Black Bass" are
sung sweetly and not without
sincerity). We're talking 100%
camp; a bubble gum pop-culture
parody. I mean, how can you beat a
title like "Tortoise Brand Pot
Scrubbing Cleaners Theme (Green
Tortoise)" for sheer silliness
quotient? The lyrics are even sillier,
making the B-52's look like poker-
faced journalists, and I suppose they
can get away with making as little
sense as they do because English is
a second language to them.
In the final analysis, the music
critic in me wants to label Shonen
Knife as Campy Power Pop, but I
actually think it would be more
fitting to describe them as the sonic
equivalent to those tiny, colourful
Japanese candies with the foil
packaging and cute names. Yum.

THE MIGHTY MIGHTY BOSSTONES
Ska-Core the Devil and More

from kicking my butt, and to protect
the general pubUc from boredom.
Am I the r

possible superior method could there
be to block synaptic dismay than

The new Mighty Mighty
Bosstones provides four walls to
hide behind, all thick with rhythm.
The thudding, thumping and yelling
is a temporary snuggle blanket under
which I can close my eyes and
pretend I'm getting paid to suffer
my mental anguish. The band more
than lives up to it's title of
mightiness. The songs are fast and
jumpy, two of which are live
recordings. Tlie Bosstones inspire
us all to achieve versatility in our
meagre existences as they range
from Motorhead-Uke segments to a
Bob Marley cover on the album.

her feelings of self worth but good

who you are) try pry this album

RATTLED ROOSTERS
Year of the Rooster
(Independent)
I'm surprised that with all the touring
these guys have done they had the
energy to get into the studio.
Appropriately opening with the
cocking of a shotgun, this CD moves
fast. Year of the Rooster does a
much better job of capturing their
live sound than the somewhat overproduced 7" out last year. This CD
is smooth but not slick. The new
tracks are irresistible, "Car with
Fins" especially. Tlie old favourites
are here ("Kill Billy Kill," "Oh
Lady," and "Flat Broke.") and their
cover of "Walkin' After Midnight-
compares with Patsy Cline's—
heresy, I know...
I hesitate to say this, 'cause it
borders on corny, but the Rattled
Roosters really have established
their own sound with this release. It
still draws on the rockabilly/country
roots but strays far into their own
territory. Equally good for driving,
dancing by yourself or doing the
dishes, Year of the Rooster is a
swell CD—check out the hidden
track.

MIND BOMB
(Mercury/Polygram)
This release could pass for a
compilation considering the range
of production styles. One song
sounds like Motley Crue, with that
L.A. cheesy metal sound, then it
gets into a groovy hard rock style
like Living Colour, and overall, the
vocals are reminiscent of Faith No
More. Now, when comparisons are
made they can eidier take the form
of an improvement on the original
or come out sounding like a band
ripping off the style of another band.
Unfortunately, Mind Bombfallsinto
the latter category. This isn't to state
that they' re cliche^ and boring. After
all, a band can't be titled when it
hasn't an identity of its own.

PRIMUS
Pork Soda
(Interscope)
This hotly awaited slab is finally
out, and is more of that progressive,
loopy, funky, I-don't-know-what-
you-call-it Primus music. Pork Soda
is anodier musician's wet dream as
this trio gives you very creamy,
intricate yet sparse songs done with
a skill that most of us would donate
souls to have. Les Claypool still has
his fish fetish going on, with "The
Ol' Diamond Back Sturgeon," and
there are no less than four songs
with a meat theme. The funk thing is
a little too heavy and the Zappa-
style influence is still there in a big
way, as are the weird time signatures. The band is one ofthe tightest
in history, yet Ihey are interesting
enough not to seem like they're
showing off. Primus fans already
know this'll cook, but if you don't
know what Primus' twisted little
world is Uke, Pork Soda is a good
start.

Despite the dark, goth- looking, Errol
Flynn cover that conjures up images
of angst-ridden, pretentious, arty

to be a well-crafted and mellow pop

underscored by a perfectly

reminiscent of early George

CHRIS MARS
75% Less Fat
(Smash/Island)
Last year's Horseshoes And
Handgrenades made me stop thinking of Chris Mars as an ex-Replacement; a totally radio-friendly pop-
rock album that sounded different
without resorting to cliches, I was
surprised that he came out with 75%
l^ess Fat so soon. Once again Mars
plays damn near everything on the
album except bass and clarinet. Most
would say that's a httle self-indulgent, but he manages to pull it off
well. What is self-indulgent is his
use of his own artwork on fhe covers.
It's good, but really, Chris, saveitfor
the gallery.
Like I said, he plays almost
everything and therefore some songs,
like "Stuck In Rewind," sound a Uttle lifeless, but the jams get kicked
out on "No Bands," "Weasel," and
"Public Opinion." All in all, 75%
Less Fat is pretly much the same
stuff, without songs cutting down

MAN LIFTING BANNER
10" That Shook The World
(Crucial Response)
Unlike Downcast, who put Bolshevik
graphics in their albums, but profess
to have no particular ideology, or
Struggle, who for all their radical
lyrics can be no more specific about
their ideals than to whine about
anarchists, Man Lifting Banner are
in your face Communists, as
evidenced by the numerous Lenin
quotes and the aptly titled
"Committed to Communism." As
well, they kindly explain in "Still
Straight," that they are proudly
straight-edge. Fortunately enough,
this merely adds amusement value to
what is a powerful, focused record,
which, as I'm neither Communist
nor straight-edge, is rather more
important.
The 10" will appeal to anyone
who likes Strain for their music
instead of the fact that they are all-
stars of the local straight-edge scene.
Unfortunately, as all the local record
stores are too busy competing to see
who can sell the most units of
Pavement, you'll have to order it
from Blacklist (if any are left) or
from the label, out of Germany.

PAW
Dragline
(A&M)
It's loud! It's heavy! It's Paw! Four
boys who have provided enough
rural pictures in their CD case to
make me think that they were
hauling bails of hay by tractor long
before they touched guitars.
However, their possible affiliation
with life on the ol' farm by no means
inhibits or hampers their musical
efficiency. Not that this album is
thoroughly mind-boggling but it
makes a nice change from the
average ear soothing melodies.
Paw's sounds smother and
encase you in a cobalt bottle of
projected frustration. Inother words,
llus music makes me mad. I haven't
figured out what the heck Paw is
yelling about but the potential
combustion of stored hay,
distributing fertilizer and being
midwife to a cow would sure inspire
any of us to write Helmetish songs,
right?

VARIOUS ARTISTS
Straight Outta Ireland
(Attic/Scotti Bros.)
I generally brace myself with
something potent when I'm faced
with listening to collections that
compile tunes by various artists
who's only common denominator
is their location. Straight Outta
Ireland, as the name implies,
features eleven contemporary Irish
artists, all of whom sound fine on
their own. There is a wide variety of
styles and each performance is
worthy of merit, particularly
"Destiny Darling," by Katell
Keineg, "Birdland," by The Spirit
Merchants, and "Valley of Dead
Cars," by Fatima Mansions, but
compiled the listener is faced with
the "play something I like"
syndrome.
Like
ulai
compilations, location means dick.
Witness the endless supply of
Toronto area collections. Dullsville,
baby! Straight Outta Ireland proves
that as good as these artists are, they
aren't good because they are from a
particular place, nor are they
brilliant.

Knowing this album was produced
by Don Fleming, I was expecting

collection of well-crafted pop songs.
Short, sweet, and radio-friendly with

Talk about jumping onto the

nothing outstanding here, but
Arrested Development and their
extended band do lay down some
adequate grooves, providing the
foundation for the AD WORD. I've
gotta say that this recording features,
possibly, the most annoying
drumming so far this decade. But
U ke I said, the rest is adequate. Also,
if you didn' t quite catch the subtlety
the first time, there's instrumental
versions included to enhance the
stunning adequateness. As
Unplugged is alive recording, these
instrumental."; are the same as the
originals with the vocals mixed real
low. I can get that effect on my
Walkman™ when I Usten to 70's

If you were ever a fan of Youth

SMASH THE STATE: A DISCOGRAPHY OF
CANADIAN PUNK, 1977-
1992
Compiled by Frank Manley
(No Exit)
Let me preface this book review by
saying   that   my   entire   punk '
experience consists of 2 Pointed
Sticks singles, I DOA concert and a
safety pin through my ear.
When you first notice the book
Smash the State, take note of the
sub-heading A Discography of
Canadian Punk, 1977-1992. I
obviously skipped the sub-heading
and anticipated a history lesson on
the punk movement in Canada. In
reality, Smash the State is a
DISCOGRAPHY of the Canadian
punk scene, probably more of an
i merest to the avid collector, or those
who have  a  deep  interest  in '
accumulating Canadian punk vinyl,
than to those who just want to find
out more about the scene in general.
Smash the State alphabetically
chronicles those bands deemed as
having that punk spirit. And although
there may be some debate as to what
bands should have or shouldn't have
been included, Smash the State does
an admirable job in documenting
the bands involved: from The
Action's 1978 12" to Zoom's 1980
7" (theyevenhaveaPlatinumBlonde
7" listed!!). The coverage isn't
limited to the early years but also
includes vinyl releases (CDs are
"antithetical to the low-tech spirit of
punk") through to 1992 (Tankhog,
Superconductor, etc.). Lots of cover
art reprints, an interview with Joey
Shithead and (to justify the $15.00
price tag) a 4-song 7" featuring, of
course,  some early,  forgotten '
Canadian punk rock.

B-moviesoundtrax, "how-to", promo records and a gaziltion other
styles. Just the fact that they interviewed the guy who wrote "Popcorn" gives this the Mofo Seal o'
you about 22-25 smackers.
For this month's group o'
grisly greats I decided to whip out
my 7-inchers. This format is hard
to track down since most of the
second hand stores are either filthy
with lame, early 80's 45s, or have
tossed them out altogether.
In my house I have this goofy
thing that I Uke to call Thee Wall
O' Shame. It is one wall of my
dining area covered with the worst
of the worst in 45s. So far it's got
about 60-70 records tacked up. Now
it starts out quite easy to find said
records, but the key to having a
wowser of a WaU O' Shame is to
have as many picture sleeves as
possible (even harder to locate)
and to have a reason to have them
up.
For instance, I have the pic.
sleeve of Edward Bear's "Last
Song", but that's about all I've
been able to fi nd— I have a side of
The Wall devoted to TV theme
songs. Also worthy are the one hit
wonders like Paper Lace's "The
Night Chicago Died" or Wenzday' s
"Last Kiss." I also have The Immortals on The Wall; classics like
Tom Jones' "She's A Lady" and
War's "Low Rider." It's always
good to have variety on The Wall
Try to hunt out the stuff that
people have tried to forget about
(stuff even classic
play), that way you
Quality. Look for a follow-up volume in the near future, 'cos there's
just too much info for one book.
Saveyourpennies, though, it'll cost
guests' dreams with
dim memories of
AlanO'DayVUn-
dercoverAngefor
Rupert Holmes'
"The Pina Colada
Song"! By the way,
here's a cool thing
you all can do: call
up those cheezy
classic rockstations
and request some of
the really awful
stuff from the
Boomer era. Let's
see how badly we
can jam up their
phone Unes and fax
machines with requests for Framp-
ton's'TmlnYou"
or Andrea True Connection's
"More, More, More" and the Uke!
While you're at it ask them not to
play "Southern Man" or fucking
"Wish You Were Here" yet again!
Where I work we're subjected to
CFMI and I hear both of the previously mentioned songs at least five
times a week; their programmers
have absolutely no imagination.
"White is the Colour" — Vancouver Whitecaps
Gonna start off with a rouser from
the PR Dept. of the old NASL soccer team. It has yer typical march
beat and the whole team doing its
beer-slinging best to carry a tune.
The British teams have these fight
songs sussed, I must admit.

Sound Charades      Artist Unknown (Ford Motor Company)
This is a two record flexi-disc set
I'm assuming they gave out to convince consumers to buy their lousy
rustbuckets. The records consist of
simple soundbites
Uke vacuum cleaners, clocks, and the
like, and I guess you
were supposed to
have a hard time
guessing them. Ford
must have thought
their owners were
complete   idiots.
Come to think of it
they did sell a lot of
Pintos. Side4hasan
unbelievably  bad
square dance, providing you' re not too
worn out by the
charades.

"Coppia Perfetta"
— Nicolino et

The Bums and Allen
of Italy do a Uttle

be funny, but my
Italian is rusty. The
shop I got this in had
about a hundred different titles Uke this
but I haven't seen
anything like it anywhere else.

Spanish World Foreign Language Series (World Publishing)
Bone up on your Spanish with this
five-flexi set covering important areas where speaking Spanish counts,
like the Customs office and bail
inquiries. I wish I had the Italian
version so I could decipher Nicco-

flexi, slap it to tape right away because they deteriorate at a horren-

THEE PSYCHOSONIC PICK O'
THEEMONTH!!!!!!!!!
Improve Your Golf— Henry Mar-
tell and Ernie Afaganis (RD
Productions)
Those of you out there without a
grip can get one with Edmonton
golf legend, Henry Mart el I, and
golfcaster extraordinaire, Afaganis.
Ten simple ways to show can make
the difference between a duffer and
a PGA champ. Lovely sleeve and
cool photos make this package as
action-packed and exciting as the
real game. And no, Stranglers fans,
track one, "Grip," is not a cover
version so don't get your hopes up!

stuff, of course, and always keep

variety of great leaders and made this fine
and rare recording we'll hear tonight. Mr.

Clarke. Ball laded from view in the late
Mties...who knows where he is today.

First there was the "Religion" single.
Now finally a new album from one of the
groups who started all the techno-
industrial dance stuff before we even
had a name for it. But this long-lived
Belgian group transcends the trends, so
don't bother labelling them.

a few added tracks, including "Yes. She Is My Skinhead Girl".
Supersnazz
• Superstupid
Taking their name from a Flamin' Groovies album, these
gals sound more like the Ramones. Supersuckers. and the
Monomen than Japan's most famous all-female group.
