101.9 fM Well, now with the Dennis Miller
Show cancelled and off the air...for
now, where the hell are we going to
be able to see Rollins on a regular
basis? Huh, answer me that. You
know we have a valid concern,
especially cause Hank has that
spotting Discorder tattoo on his left
bicep [you fucking idiot Joe Berg].
So now we're left with one less hour
of quality television which will soon
be gobbled up by some form of
sports coverage, woop woop. Aren't
we exposed to enough sports on
television without the 24 Hour Coca-
Cola Olympic Coverage Netwoik?
Or maybe we could see a few
more anchorpersons analyse why
they knew, all along, the Ross Perot
presidential campaign was a fiasco
from the beginning. Sorry, but King
Roeser is "The Candidate." In
retrospect, though, there have been,
or will be, bigger money making
scams than Perot's legislative fir-
drill...Lollapalooza is a good
example.
Stick 30,000 impression-able
youth in a facility that comfortably
holds about 15,000, take away their
right to bring in a bottle of Evian or
a brick of cheese to curb the hunger/
thirst they might feel later on in the
day, jack up concession prices for
foods/drinks to an hour's wage and
then give them a kick in the ass as
they leave the grounds,
unknowingly, for the last time to
fetch their wallets. At Lollapalooza
they don't take American Express
and they don't kiss you after they
screw you.
Speaking of screwing you...if
you have a really fucked oral fetish,
and you look hard enough, and if for
some reason you really want to own
Eddie[Pearl Jam crooner] Vedder's
retainer you can find it in a used
record store in Seattle. I'll give you
a hint, the record store in question is
in the U District, not far from
Cellophane Square, and specializes
invinyl...lotsofit
A big "Hello!" goes out to our
new readers and our long-time
supporters, and "Thanks!" to all of
you that picked up the All Local
Issue last month (although mention
of it was totally deleted from the
cover thanks to our wonderful
printers). With that, next month is
our big Return To Fall Issue and our
circulation will be going up to 20,000
once again. Features to look forward
to for next month are: Jim Rose,
Supersuckers, Drive Like Jehu,
OUvelawn, WaltMink,Chariatans UK,
Lemonheads andJuhana Hatfield (yes,
we have photos. Care to buy some AFI
Maybe for a couple hundred bucks
and some blow. A step up...? Lick.)
andmore!!![Ed.™]
LOOK AT THAT ESCARGOT
Dear Airhead,
More than likely, it's rare that
a record label will write back to a
magazine after a review of one of
their releases has been published (at
least for us). The way the game
goes, as Discorder would know,
you send out your release, in hopes
of a positive review, if one at all. It's
a tricky game. What if the record
falls into the wrong hands, or if the
ever-lovable rock critic is having a
shitty day and decides he's going to
take it out on someone's 'artistic'
outlet It can sometimes be pretty hit
and miss. It's a chance you take.
Which brings me to the July
issue oi Discorder, and Rob Boper's
review of Change of Heart's Smile
release. First off and foremost, thank
you. Rob hit the nail directly on the
head concerning this record. He
understood the record, the band,
and where they're coming from.
We couldn't of asked for a better
review. Except...
The review stresses how
unbelievable it is that Change of
Heart are not signed to any label,
major or independent. Excuse me?
Cargo signed Change of Heart
three years ago with the release of
Soapbox. So, no they haven't been
ignored. I mean, it could be an honest
mistake. Who's logo appears on the
record? Who's been advertising the
record in Discorder forthe last three
months? What does it say in brackets
on the header? By no means is this
a self ego-stroke, it's just nice to be
recognized for who and what you
Maybe a Cargo clarification
is due for Mr. Boper and anyone
else. Yes, Cargo Records is a large
independent distributor in Canada,
carrying anything from Madonna
pic-discs to Drunks with Guns 7"ers.
But Cargo is also an in-house label,
with acts such as Snfu, Shadowy
Men On A Shadowy Planet,
Asexuals, and yes. Change Of Heart
We sign bands, give them money to
record, promote them to our best
abilities, etc. We don't 'mold' our
bands. They have complete artistic
control, right down to ok-ing the
album artwork and advertising. We
think it's a pretty good deal. We
know how great Change Of Heart
are, that's why we put out their
records.
No finger needs to be pointed.
I just want to clarify these things
simply to bemore at ease. Discorder
is a fine publication, and we'll
continue to support it every month
with advertising and servicing, just
get it right, ok?
Sincerely
Patrick Hamou
Promotions; Cargo Records
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE
Dear Airhead,
Shawn Conner's interview
with Kreviss in the July issue of
Discover is a consummate piece of
rock writing. John Mackie and Tiger
Beat look out! The only thing it
lacked was a little quiz at the end to
encapsulate key points. Something
like...
1. Which Kreviss members) did
Kevin not hit it off with?
A) Sandy
B) Fiona
C) donna
D)None
2. Which Kreviss drummer
possesses a hairstyling certificate?
A) Kevin
B) Donna
3. Does "Sandy" actually spell her
name with an "i" or a "y"?
4. How does Sandra
describe Kreviss?
A) An art thing
B) A social
phenomenon as opposed to
an internal musical goal that
could be hindered by
people's expectations
C) Not really punk,
not really pop
D) Like driving a car
for a year, then someone
asks you how many wheels
are on the car and you have
to get out and count them
E) All of the above
5. Which of the following
is an example of Kreviss's
"do-it-yourself attitude"?
A) They're slower
than other bands
B) They're less
proficient than other bands
C) Their SubPop
single "feels like a big joke"
to them
D) No one in the band
practices scales
6. What is Kevin's favourite
colour?
With the addition of
reader-friendly little
gimmicks like this, and Mr.
Conner on your roster of
writers, Discorder will be
only a step from journalistic
credibility. Not to mention
cashing in on more advertising
dollars than ever!
Well, maybe not
Yours truly,

Dear Discorder,
Don't print letters praising
"freedom in your press for real
opinion that is lacking elsewhere"
(ie. Rob's letter last issue/July '92).
Why? Because you and I both know
that it doesn't exist, especially in
cases where ignorant, sexist,
apolitical, geek-voiced members of
CiTR are criticized (ie. what you are
looking at now). Your acceptance
of Rob's compliment was dishonest
(ergo not good/bad/ something to
avoid/ an act of irresponsible
journalism).
Anyways, I feel a
masturbatory urge cumming on and
my girlfriend isn't around (ergo a
rolled up copy of Discorder will
have to do). Keep on rocking against

reading last month's letters from
Elspeth, Rob and Jim, and "I'm so
industrial I wear steel gonch" Rob I
just had to spew forth some criticism
to all of you and anyone else in the
same boat (and there's alot of you!).
To Elspeth, who was annoyed
that in a review a band's attire was
complimented on and their musical
abilities seemingly ignored, let me
say that I have survived many a gig,
even at your very own O.A.P. Hall
in Victoria, and the one thing that
the majority of these gigs had in-
common was really bad sound. So
what's my point? Simply this, gigs
are entertainment, you feel them,
watch them, taste them, smell them
(especially Tankhog) and
occasionally you just sit back and
listen. So if a band looks good, or is
way out of hand on stage, and
someone gets into that, then the
band has accomplished their task of
being entertaining. And with all the
crap bands out there, that's enough.
So don't get your knickers in a twist
and leam to enjoy gigs and not take
Discorder reviews so seriously.
To Rob and Jim and Mr.
Industrial Rob who are whining
because Luv-A-Fair and the Cruel
Elephant have supposedly become
soiled by the mainstream and their
little alternative secret clubhouses
ruined and invaded, get a grip, get a
life, get a check on reality. First, if

us that we're not AF, however we

Tiger Beat. Look for your copy at
the Comic Shop. Will the real
Scooter please sign in?
MR. AND MISS HAPPINESS
Dear Airhead,
As I glanced through last month's
issue I noticed that once again there
seems to be a large contingent of
whining by so called "alternative"
types who need a good dose of
reality. Now I don't want to put
myself on some punk-rock pedestal
and dictate to you bozos but after
alternative or feeling dilterent get
off you fucking high horse and be
thankful those macho jock types are
showing up because if it wasn't for
them drinking and filling the place
there wouldn't be a club for you to
go to. Industrial Rob, if you think
slamming to canned music is cool
and industrial, go to a real gig. One
thing I hate is having some punk kid
slamming intome when the occasion
arises that I shake my tail feather on
the dance floor. I've slammed before
and I still do if the gig warrants it but
to canned music?! You're probably
oneofthegoofsl'vehadthepleasure
of knocking on his ass because he
doesn 't know when to grow up. And
if you want money to open a club
join the dreaded mainstream and get
some cash.... Oh yeah, if "Jesus
Built My Hotrod" is an industrial
song then maybe Industrial Rob
should hang out at the Rock Cellar
*cus they play it there too.
And finally, in closing, let's
stop whining about Scooter's
Courtney Love interview. Yes, in
retrospect we are all aware that it
could have been handled better, or
not at all, but Courtney herself has
spoken to Scooter and wasn't
offended by the remarks so let's let
it die gracefully, there are more
important and crucial issues to
contend with than a write up in
Discorder. Remember it's free.
SnarkyTim
..sort of like opinions are, right?
Dear Airhead,
I, as a regularuserof both the Cruel
Elephant and the Luv-A -Fairtotally
empathize with Rob and Jim and the
misfortunes of having ignorant
mindless preppy fools invade clubs
where they have no business being
or no understanding of what is
actually going on within the club.
And before you respond that I
am suffering from clique rejection,
in my humble view CiTR and
Discorder have become one huge
elitist clique, who try to dictate
what's cool and what's not To you
I say Lighten up. Find that Good old
sense of irreverant tongue in cheek
humour you used to have and widen
your scope of coverage. Let's have
more Nardwuar stories, more
"Mekanikal Object Noize" articles,
etc. etc. etc.
But on with my tale, Picture
it. Tuesday night The day before
Canada Day. After waiting in line
for an indeterminable amount of
time at the Scuz I finally arrive on
the much too crowded dance floor,
only to be assaulted by these 90210
types who of all things are stage
diving off the speakers. Now any
one with half a brain knows that
you do not stage dive off the
speakers in a dance club, you stage
dive at a D.O.A. or S.N.F.U. or
any appropriate hardcore gig. (To
all you Luke Perry's who were
diving at the Psychedelic Furs, you
don't do it there either. They aren't
a hardcore band). And I believe
that is the point of what Jim and
Rob were trying to make. That
these type of people who are
suddenly calling themselves
alternative because it's the cool
thing to do have no fucking clue as
lo what the etiquette of the whole
alternative club scene is.
Now I really have no problem
with these people being there but
my suggestion to you is that if you
really want to be there and belong
and not stick out like a sore thumb
and inspire the wrath of several if
not all the alternative people in the
city then watch what these truly
alternative people are doing and do
it. Then we won't have to call you
names in the paper and publicly
humiliate you (you know who you
are).

Do you get alot of people thinking you're "the" Tom Jones?
No, you re the first..wait a second my kettle's boiling.
Mmm mm, tasty. With the curren t constitutional talks what effect do you think it will ha ve on
the music and arts communities? You know, Quebec separating and all?
I dunno, I guess there'll be alot of people whining about Quebec leaving, I don't care really. I mean,
I live here, speak English, and it doesn't bother me.

Q(99Z by BLAINE  THURIEr\ - THANKS TO CARL NEWMAN, BURT" BACHARACH   A WD   WAL   DAVID Q M
eet L.S.D., an in-your-face metal/punkAhrash quartet out of Chicago who, if they have their druthers, will single-handedly revive
the "screw the establishment" attitude they say is sorely lacking in
At the core ofthe group is Chris Storm, or Stanley, as he's
known these days. Stanley stands for all that is anti-status quo. His hair is
short, yet matted, and sporadically adorned with small rubber bands. His
attire consists of an old grey suit that is fraying at every seam and has
obviously not been washed in several months. Hom rimmed black glasses
frame his scruffy unshaven face. He resembles a yuppie gone severely wrong
and smells like one to boot. But plunk him in front of an audience and you'll
get one raw, powerful voice and a dynamic performance you'll not soon
forget.
According to L.S.D. bassist Bill Car, the paradox is exactly the kind of
statement that the band is trying to make. "Too much of today's society is
based on physical impression," he says. "Just last night at our hotel, we were
walking out to get something to eat and the manager took one look at Stanley
But other people's perceptions don't really matter to him."
Bill and Stanley met fourteen years ago, at their Chicago high
school. Bill was class president, and Stanley was class trouble-maker.
A friendship was bom. The pair later linked up with guitarist Alex
Kayne and drummer Michael Horak. Hence, LS.D. was bom. The
band then mover to L.A., starting out by playing the outskirts of town,
and later making bets with L.A. booking agents that the band would
buy them a case of beer if they couldn't blow away the opening act
They never lost
LS.D.'s music is fast, furious, chainsaw guitar intended to
offend, provoke, and do just about anything to incite a reaction from
its listeners. Or as Alex outs it, "Destruction with a good melody."
Don't be expecting to lump them into the Nirvana/Pearl Jam/
Soundgarden file, however. "If you wanna put things into piles and
categories go work for the government," asserts Alex. "We've been
called glam, punk, alternative, thrash, assholes. We've been called
everything but a cab,"he jokes. "Pearl Jam and Soundgarden are good
because they play good music, but not because they wear shorts on
stage, y'know?" Some songs by virtue of their lyrics and titles, seem
destined not to be played on the radio. The upcoming album The Silent
Majority features tracks like, "Big Black Bush" and the infectious
"Fuckin' Shit Ass."
The group's philosophy is not to worry about radio programmer's view of their music. Alex explains, "For us it's not so much the
amount of money we can make, but more how many people will be
pissed off and offended. And all the people who will be raising their
hands saying, 'Excuse me, I object,' well, they should object because
those are the people we most want to upset. Believe me, we've got a
few tricks up our sleeve. If we were to make it really big, it would be
hilarious, like if one of us started dating princess Diana! I just wanna
see somebody who is pulling in a six figure income singin' 'Fuckin'
Shit Ass.'"
The band agrees that their music will be very popular with some,
and detested by others, but at least, they claim, it won't be ignored.
Stanley is a very private person off-stage and they do admit to being
concerned with how possible success might affect him. "He is very
fragile and dealing with a lot of rage. Only time will tell how he
handles it if il happens," Alex says.
LS.D.'s main objective, they say, is to let the music and its
message stand out above all else. "We don't play and act the way we
do," continues Alex, "so that somebody's Mom and Dad in Idaho will
and said "You, out!' We had to explain to him that Stanley was staying there!       say "Those are some really together boys.'"

and exotic dancing for a mere $10 on
Saturday nights. Beyond the liquid eyeliner spiderwebs, DuMarier extra lights
and the fascination with making cows
sexy, the folks of the batcave unit have
gone out and made an attempt (albeit
mediocre) to do something other than pose.
That's right, they now sing and play
instruments too! Masochistic Religion,
Pure (now Love Bomber) and Vampire
Sex Chain are at the nucleus of TO's
preforming goth core. All bands with keyboards manned by
a sexy femme and
assorted guys with
long black hair
moaning about
getting suntans.
The Cosmic Saints
seemed to take
themselves a little
less seriously.
Garnering
my attention with
their intensely
skimpy*
androgyny
and...okay, four
skinny white guys
turned me on: one
was covered in
nothing but
hockey tape, another in shorty
short shortz, and
the drummer was
wearing a G-
String. Yeah, you
can see Aspirin
Feast,
Supersuckers or
The Leaving
Trains for some
serious nudity
and the music
will be decent,
but gosh, they just
don't pirouette
with dildos like
these guys.
That's the action
that gets me comin' up to the table and
shovin' nickels down the jockeys. Ahhhhh,
the glorious lean years when a desperate
Chippendale would gladly accept public
anal insertion if it was in the form of a role
of quarters, but I digress. The Cosmic
Saints have a 24 hour hot line and lots of
sexy computer graphics to accent their
rilly keen attitudes.
The primary interest with my interview was of the graphic homoerotic
masturbation that apparently spawns
monthly letters in NOW magazine (TO's
equivalent to the Straight). When I saw
them this was the highlight of the show:
the guitarist was pumping his wahwah
peddle for all it was worth while the lead
singer ran a dildo over his fret board and
the bassist licked his neck.
It was very sexy, and given the obvious context of a goth rock bands' image
of forced sexuality (Gene Loves Jezebel),
fashion and not much else, most critics
would tend to fall on masturbation to
describe them.
Discorder. How do you come up
with that masturbation thing?
Cosmic Saints: It was just kind of a
demented eXXXtasy thing. I mean me
and the lead singer were picking up
on each others vibes, aura reading
each others emotions and it was all
improvisation.
Ever encounter homophobia in the
bar scene?
CS: Yes, a lot of the lime there'll be a
couple of guys sitting next lo the stage
and we can hear them say "What are
these guys, FAAA AAGS=" But after a
few songs, I don't know if they realize
it, they start getting into it.
Do you remember Specimen,
they sang that song "Kiss Kiss
Bang Bang"
CS: Oh right! I've heard that song
before. Some friends of mine have a
clothing store and they use that song
for their fashion shows. That's definitely the image were associating ourselves with.
How do you feel about the obvious Nazi message associated
with      many
Goth bands?
CS: I think it's
dangerously
beautiful. I don't
mind it at all, it
draws influences
of the German
sound and it steps
into the danger
zone, which a lot
of bands are afraid
to do. We're about
stepping into that
danger zone. We
plan on being at
the forefront of a
generation that's
over the edge. Our
saying is "Genera-
lion Takeover."
(At this point the
phone rang so I
started flipping
through a recent
Propaganda on
his coffee table.
Propaganda had
an article on Death
in June, the biggest bunch of anti-
Semites to ever
wear black nail
polish. Strangely
the article's only
focus was on the
lead singers unhappy childhood.)
Why do you think so many people in T.O. are still into the
Batcave thing?
CS: I think it's just because of our
personality here. Everyone wants to
hook onto something that's hip, but
not really go into the public eye with it,
lhat's what we're all about.
...Does anybody wanna buy a black
leather jacket? Cheap.
Fl or a gospel fan there could be no
greater highlight than to meet the
reigning diva, Marion Williams.
Marion Williams is the current
    bearer ofthe title: Queen of Gospel,
a crown passed on from the Georgia
Peach, Mahalia Jackson, Clara Ward and the
like. Now sixty-five, Williams was bom in Miami
and grew up in the holiness church tradition, a
style harder than the blues. She was discovered
as a teenager in Philadelphia by Clara Ward. The
Ward Singers were the reigning women's group
during gospel's golden age of the '40's and
'50's.
It was during that time that the Ward
Singers befriended the Rev. CC. Frank lin in his
Detroit church, with the women nurturing a
young and motherless Aretha Franklin. Marion
Williams left the Ward's to form the Stars of
Faith and to tour the world in Langston Hughes
musical Black Nativity. This last great pure
gospel soloist who also claims Little Richard as
one of her musical children, appeared recently at
the Commodore Ballroom as part of the
Vancouver Jazz Festival.
Discorder. I noticed thatyou include some
Miami gospel, calypso songs, in your
work. Could you tell me a bit about your
roots in Miami gospel?
Marion Williams: I'm from Miami, Florida. I
was bom and reared there but my roots are from
the Bahamas, wheremy father grewup.Therefore
we beard a lot of calypso music, you see, and that
calypso is in me. That ba-dan-do-ba-dan-do-
duh, yeah. Therefore, I hear it all the time because
that root is there.
Your repertoire incl udes almost all styles
of gospel, did you learn all this growing
up in the church?
We grew up with that in us. We were bom with
it..and it just went on to others, you know. Who
wanted to follow behind? We sung the regular
hymns, like "Hallelujah, Thine the Glory," and
all those things and then we came down to the
spirituals, and what not. We did those things
from the beginning. I started singing when I was
three years old and kept on in the church. The
church gave me my roots, really, because they
instilled God in me. They let me know that he is
the one that made us and that he wants us to
live for him; and that love went with me
through the years.
You've been singing for a long time now,
beginning your career with the Ward
Singers....
I was with the Ward Sisters for twelve years and
then just went on my own. I was with the Stars of
Faith, then and from there I was solo ever since.
Tell me who the people are in your group,
and where are they from?
They come from Philadelphia, except for Miss
Bradford[who has been with Marion since her
role as piano player in Black Nativity], she lives
in Virginia. But Miss Williams and Miss Gauvin,
they are from Philadelphia. Yes, those babies
were bora there. Yeah, they're my sugars.
Your latest album, Strong Again, has
received much critical praise. How do
you feel about that?
Mmm...well, 1 feel good about that. I feel good
about it, yes, indeed I wasn'treally too interested
at first, years back, about records but I found that
records do help. And I'm glad for Mr. Tony
Heilbut [the producer] who has really been a
spoke in my wheel, ya' know, to do things forme
and to be right there to back me up. I'm grateful
to him and my manager Judith Lymen, they've
been in my comer for thirty years, ya' know.
That's a long time for one producer and one
I know, in reading about your life, that
you've faced some struggles: poverty,
racism, illness. What's keptyou going all
these years and motivated you to keep
singing gospel?
When I look back, when my soul looks back, and
wonder, "How I Got Over"[here she's quoting
from a gospel standard], it's because God did it
all(ital) for me. I'm so happy to serve him. I'm
not ashamed to tell anybody about God and
about Jesus Christ, the Saviour, because without
him we can't do nuuin', we are nowhere. As my
song says, "He saved a wretch like me," and you,
and whoever. Ifyou are a true Christian then you
know which predicament and which shape you
were in before you received this sal vation. Is that
true? Yes, indeed! And I advise everybody today
that if you don't know Jesus, you need lo know
Him. He'sthe one that gives you peace; he gives
you peace in your heart, and in your mind. He
knows how to confront you. And today I wouldn't
take nuuin' but to serve God.
Yes, but weren't you ever tempted to
chuck the whole thing and leave gospel,
the church, and make your way into the
secular music world?
I've been offered aH kinds of monies, and whatever,
to sing the blues. I've been offered all that And I
want you to know thai I turned a hundred thousand
dollars down, years back, that they wanted to give
me just for singing one pop song. I told them no, I
don't want that [money] for anything, really. God
has blessed me miraculously and I'm enjoying God
and knowing him. You know, money is not
everything to me. No indeed, if it was I wouldn't
have come here (massive laughter).
So what brought you to the Jazz Festival?
I wanted somebody here to hear what God has
done for me. I know that people are saved here
too, just as well as any part ofthe United States
or the world. But even so, lean only tell you whal
God has done for me.
How do you feel about gospel today?
There have been a lot of changes in the
past twenty years or so. What do you
think of the gospel singers of the 90's,
like the Winans?
Yeah, you said the word. The Winans and the
Commissions, but the single ones too. Bebe and
Cece, yes, well they're the Winans period...and
Vanessa Bell, she's a greal singer. She's gota lot
of range and that I like about her, yes indeed. So
many different ones now, a lot of them are con-
lemp-or-ary, but I still like the traditional.
That's what I was getting at. Just to
follow that up, is the audience for gospel
growing, do you think?
I think so, yes, indeed. I've witnessed that It's
gelling bigger and bigger because a lot of the
young people are really aware of it now, sure
enuff. And they love it yes indeed.
Thank you.
Sure enuff, sugar.
BY DAVID LANGILLE The following scene is a familiar one to those of us that have
joined the age of technology by purchasing that piece of equipment
known colloquially as a VCR. The
victims approach the glass door hesitantly, warily sensing the impending horror but not realizing its full
extent The victims collectively hold
their breath and propel themselves
through the portal. Inside, choice
beyond their wildest expectation
greets them like a bad flashback. A
surly minimum-wage earning clerk
and 10,000 titles are glaring at them
from all angles. Attempting to avert
the time consuming terror of the
the victims head straight to the New
Releases section. Little do they
know that gaping throngs of renters,
just like themselves, have preceded
them, systematically taking out
every copy of every decent movie
preferred for their perusal.
It slowly dawns on the victims that they are caught, trapped
into spending endless hours among
titles whose only recommendations
are the descriptive blurbs on the
backs of the boxes and random quotations from Leonard Maltin reviews. Wait! Fair victims, help is
on the way. Ennui stricken children
of the 90's, fear renting video cassettes nolongerforLTarda Bolskaya
- patron saint of celluloid, have
deigned to aid the unaided, decide
for the undecided. On a monthly
basis I will venture forth in these
hallowed pages of Discorder, imparting advice on matters of a VCR
New releases shall concern me
little, for on those well trod paths
you loyal readers can find council
elsewhere. Rather, I shall delve into
regions, times, and eras half forgotten, yet just as entertaining. In conjunction with the weekly specials at
Videomatica (1855 W.4th Ave), I
shall explore and expose the best,
worst, and middling of titles no
longer considered fresh, providing
background information and suitable accompanying refreshment
suggestions to titillate your viewing
experience.
Successful and sustained director/actor collaborations are this
month's feature and the Martin
Scorcese/Robert deNiro partnership can certainly be described
accurately by both of those adjectives.
It is quite the recluse who
hasn't heard of such films as Taxi
Driver (1976), Raging Bull (1980),
Goodfellas (1990), and Cape Fear
(1992). All are powerful examples
ofthe power of the Scorcese/deNiro
teaming. I delved back a Utile fur-
ther than those acclaimed flicks and
chose Mean Streets (1973), the
breakthrough picture for both
Scorcese and deNiro.
MeanStreelsldh the futile story
of a group of nobodies living on the
same block of New York's Little Italy.
Scorcese's tremendous manipulation
of lighting and music give diis movie
the subtle tension missing from some
of his more recent projects. deNiro is
good in his now trademark role of the
fringe-dweller whose mental stability
could snap at any moment but it is
Harvey Keitel as nice-guy Charlie who
animates this story and gives it credibility.
Interesting for its autobiographical nature and directorial techniques, Mean Streets is somewhat
dated by the torrent of films about
similar subjects that have flooded
screens in the past 20years. If you're
one ofthe sect sworn to shave off all
your body hair if you're forced to sit
through another film about New
York Italians, perhaps you should
pass on this one. Otherwise, a little
Puccini and a 7&7 should set your
mood for Mean Streets.
Unlike the 20 year Scorcese/
deNiro collaboration, Josef Von
Sternberg and Marlene Dietrich
worked together for only six years.
Prolific years they were, however,
as Dietrich starred in seven features
for Von Sternberg between 1930
and 1935. The first, and most famous, was The Blue Angel, reputedly a triumph of style and imagery.
Unfortunately, for one hour and
twenty-nine minutes of my time,
the 1932 Sternberg/Dietrich ven-
VdKBlondeVenus was not. Though
stylish and uniquely lit, this film is
a painful example of miscasting, or
rather, miswriting.
Dietrich's charm was her art
deco eroticism. Here Dietrich plays
a wife and mother who sacrifices
her "good name" to a rich businessman (Cary Grant) in order to raise
money to save her dying scientist
husband (Herbert Marshall). Her
eroticism is a serious drawback to
her believability as a suffering virtuous haus-frau. Though the movie's songs are passable and the costuming unique—Marlene dons a
gorilla suit for her rendition of "Hot
Voodoo"—Blonde Venus proves
that Josef Von Sternberg could exploit light and shadow only so far, at
some point plot must take over. If
you're up late at night and Blonde
Venus is the only thing on, go to bed.
Or better yet, crack open a good
German brew and rent the Blue Angel instead.
Send in the clowns! Its time to
imbibe anything that helps you lose
your fear of laughter. Blake
Edwards and Peter Sellers
mated to create a brood of movies
that are still as funny as when but a
decade's worth of candles graced
my birthday cake and my tastes were
slightly less critical.
The Pink Panther series, including The PinkPanther (1963), A
Shot in the Dark (1964), Return of
the Pink Panther (1975), The Pink
Panther Strikes Again (1976), and
Revenge ofthe PinkPanther (1978),
combined slapstick and schtick in a
way so helplessly mirthful only the
most stodgy hater of all things stupid could find unhumourous. Ifyou
saw only the 1970*s installments, or
your taste runs to the subtler of
slapstick styles, you may want to try
out the earlier two films of the se-
A Shot in the Dark stars the
incredible comic talent of Peter Sellers as Inspector Clou s seau, the most
dedicated, and hapless, of France's
finest Elke Sommer, one of those
70's game show perennials, proves
that she did actually aa in movies as
Maria, the maid who must have
"dun-it". The chauffeur of a very
rich and influential man is shot and
all evidence points to the blonde,
blue-eyed, and beautiful Maria.
Clousseau, however, characteristically refuses to believe that a murderess could be wrapped up in so
lovely a package.
Before Zucker, Abrams,
Zucker, and Nielsen, there were
Ed wards and Sellers, ready and willing to uke zaniness to its zenith. If
the phrase "fun for the whole family" makes you want to run amok
screaming "RickMoranis must die",
perhaps you should give the Pink
Panther series a try. Dead Ant Dead
Ant Dead Ant Dead Ant Dead Ant
Dead Ant Dead AAAAAAnt
Equally humourous, but oh-
so much more adult is Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard (1950).
Twenty time oscar nominee Wilder
is Hollywood's most enduring cynic.
From scriptwriter in the 1930's to
directorof the 1981 box -office bomb
Buddy Buddy, Wilder's sarcastic
vision has penetrated audiences with
varying success. Some of his greatest achievements, and most effective comedy, were realized while
directing Jack Lemmon. The combination of Wilder's Sahara-dry wit
and Lemmon's everyguy-niceguy
style of acting culminated in 1960's
The Apartment.
However, Wilder's most famous, and perhaps most ironic, film
was Sunset Boulevard. It tells the
pettily tragic story of an aging and
very rich silent movie star, Norma
Desmond, who has become a recluse in her Beverly Hills mansion.
There she is attended only by her
faithful servant, Max. Norma hopes
to halt time by not acknowledging
that it exists. William Holden plays
an unsuccessful and recently jaded
scriptwriter who inadvertently stumbles into this mansion that time forgot. He agrees, for a handsome fee,
to help the delusioned Miss
Desmond edit her epic screenplay,
but he soon finds himself ensnared
in the role of her young, kept boyfriend. Forced by Norma's propensity to suicide, he must help her
keep up the facade that she is young,
beautiful, and adored by fans that
haven't existed for 20 years.
Sunset Boulevard's ironic sarcasm seeps out not only from its plot
or iu dialogue, the latter of which
brings to mind the most recent Hollywood indictment, The Player, but
its perfect casting.   Not only do
people, Uke Cecil B. deMUle play
themselves, a device also used in
The Player, but the lead actors have
a greater significance than the usual
requirements of talent and avail-
abUity. Gloria Swanson, who plays
Norma Desmond, really was a si-
lentfilm star whosepopularity crumbled afterthe advent ofulkies. Max
is played by Erich Von Stroheim, a
silent movie director whose overspending and string of commercial
busts led to the demise of his
hireability. (Modem directors be
warned!) Further, Swanson, the
popular actress.fired Von Stroheim,
the acclaimed director, after he spent
600,000 of her 1928 dollars on her
independently produced film, Queen
Kelly. All the Uttle incidentals join
biting dialogue to produce the anti-
Pollianna of movies. Viewing this
particu lar piece of celluloid requires
a great quantity of iced bubbly on
hand, so that you, like Norma
Desmond, can scream through pencilled lips at your tuxedo-ed servant
for "More champagne!"
Until next month, when the
surs and director of The Philadelphia Story will be my subject of
revelation, I bid you a calm video
experience.

(gm&J KW*AAA/V\\® 1 ill il i®XowX*<>WVA/\ "If I am elected, each and every member ofthe nation will recieve a bottle of malt liquor and a gun to go along with it. And you can't beat that, that is something that will
help you through hard times, much better than a stupid job will," proclaimed Gwar manager Sleazy P. Martini while describing his campaign platform forthe United States
presidency. According to Sleazy P., a position of such political clout would guarantee the fulfillment of Gwar's plans for the annihilation of all Americans, an ambition
that has become the band's mission with the release of their latest collection of sadistic reveries: America Must Be Destroyed.
It was Sleazy P. himself who discovered Gwar four years ago when he unwittingly stumbled upon the ice tombs of a group of immortal barbarians (who had recently
been thawed out after millions of years, due to the greenhouse effect) while he was trapped in Antarctica.
Enticing them with large quantities of crack, Sleazy P. lured these creatures back to civilization, dubbed them Gwar, and has been helping them ever since in their quest
for world domination under the guise of a decadent heavy metal band.
Gwar now tours North America and beyond, bringing its hootenanny from hell to defenseless teenagers, leaving carnage and destruction wherever they go. Both Sleazy
P. and Gwar resident philosopher, Sexicutioner, were on hand for an intimate, compelling interview with the Discorder in which they expressed their views on such thought
provoking issues as woman's right's, musical integrity, substance abuse, and pre-pubescent buttocks. Ky (^Jrric StOITOW and SnencerTodd
what we do to the rest of you: the gold fillings will be jacked out of your teeth.
Discorder. There seems to be a bit of confusion over your
origins, even amongst your band members, would you care to
enlighten us?
Sleazy P-: Confusion? Maybe
from my point of view. All of
this super hero stuff and outer
space shit... I can't keep it
straight. I just show up to the
gigs, collect the dough, make
sure the deli tray is out, and I
fuckin' lay the monster lines
Sexecutioner: You know,
you've got quite a hangover
when you've been asleep for
60 million years or so; your
brains are being thawed out
and exposed to direct microwave radiation through the hole
in the ozone. You know, crack
is the best thing. I can understand why you prescribe it to
the mongrels in the inner cit-
Your latest effort is entitled America Must Be Destroyed, how should Ca-     photo by Kai Korinth
nadians react to that, are
we safe?
Sexecutioner: Not at all, so long as you embrace the same Western ideals
as the lower half of your continent. South America will be destroyed as
well, the whole planet eventually, just this portion for this tour, this
campaign.
Sleazy P.: I don't mean to trivialize your country, but these guys just got
thawed out 3 or 4 years ago, they have a hard time telling the difference
between Canada and the U.S.
Sexecutioner:Tho.y are pretty close when you look at it from a geographically cosmic point of view
Are there any humans you admire?
Sexecutioner. Idi Amin...certainly,
Sleazy P.: Dean Martin,
Sexecutioner. Poncho Villa,
Sleazy P.: Englebert Humperdinck,
Sexecutioner. Phil Silvers.
Hammer?
Sleazy P.: I admire his pants.
Sexecutioner: I don't know about this jig he does on stage, I've seen a few
decapitated people do the same. He's got no form, no choreography, how
could he possibly spaz out to the art for that we have assembled here today?
Sleazy P.: The real question is how good can you dance when you have no
cerebral cortex?
Sexecutioner: It's all talent at that point, it's all instinct. The whole
■e of your life is determined by the PSI in your aortic arteries as it
fibullates you across the stage. Now Mr. Hammer, I know he does that shit
night after night and I know he gets together with Michael Jackson and they
both have their own little karaoke contests, and that's how they
both got started....Well anyhow, I forget the question, next
question.
What do you think about people claiming that you're
nothing but a '90s version of Kiss or Alice Cooper?
Sleazy P.: Let me clarify something, Kiss and Alice Cooper are
simple acts, make believe. This is the real thing. Real people
die, real death, real carnage. This is the real thing buddy, it don't
get none more real than this.
So by and large you feel you've been misunderstood
as artists?
Sexecutioner: Myself as an artist, I know I would be very
embarrassed if a human was to understand my art.
Sleazy P.: You try to equate us with preexisting bands of trivial
nature when you don't understand the infinite genuis of Gwar.
It's beyond comprehension.
Sexecutioner. It's too vast, it's too vast for words.
What doyou think about women's rights,
considering you have a female member
in Gwar (Slymenstra Hymen). Are you
trying to be copy other bands such as
the Pixies or Sonic Youth?
Sexecutioner. I know that you would like to
trivialize her, make her into one of your vacuous little
bimbos, but actually she embraces every concept of any
mother goddess that you have ever had on this planet. Mother
goddesses that squirt slymenstral fluid right in your face.
You must some how absorb this for yourself at the show, I
cannot explain her art.
Apart from the pre-pubescent youths, what are
someof the other benefits of doing an ali-ages gig?
Sleazy P.: More money.
Sexecutioner. There' s more shame. There's something about
the soul of ateenagenthey'retender, their buttocks are...much
more appetizing. I pulled down a pre-pubescent's pants just
the other day to make sure that they were fresh and, believe
me, everybody in the audience agreed that they were very
fresh (grinning).
Let's talk about ticket prices, some would say...
Sleazy P.: A bit pricey? Faggot!
Would that have anything to do with a nasty coke habit?
Sleazy P.: I think that would have to do with your coke habit Obviously you
can't raise the capitol to pay for the ticket.
Sexecutioner: What will you need money for after this, I want to ask ya?
Sleazy P.: Ya, you'll be dead. You can't take it wilh you bud.
Sexecutioner. Of course we're going to pick out all of your organs and
various body parts.
Sleazy P.: If you think the price of the fuckin' ticket is bad, wait 'til you see
your organs will be sold at outrageous prices on the black market for organ
donation, the rest of you will be ground up into hamburger and any bones or
cartilage left will be made into fertilizer. So believe me, we're not through
making money out of you just because you pay the price at the door.
Sexecutioner. We'll send some strands of hair to your parents just for a
memento.
There's much more diversity on your latest album than your
previous releases. Would you tell us about your musical growth?
Sexecutioner. Purely accidental.
Sleazy P.: I think you can attribute it purely to confusion.
Sexecutioner: Yes, diversity is inversely proportional to confusion.
What about the home video Phallus in Wonderland? Would you tell our
readers what that's all about?
Sleazy P.: It's black, it's eight inches long, it fits in your VCR (verbal drum
roll). I tell you what, it's coming out late in Canada
Sexecutioner. Why is that?
Sleazy P-'- Because this is...Canada. I don't know why. I don't know why
they edited three songs out of our tape.
Sexecutioner. Tell them whatyou
told me. That it is a lame-ass censor-based throwback of a country
that doesn't have any freedom of
speech guarantees.
Sleazy P.: For words like pee-pee,
caca...
Sexecutioner. doo-doo.
Sleazy P.: The video, in a nutshell,
is basically the struggle of Oderus
[Gwar vocalist] to overcome the
forces of good, or evil (depending
upon how you look at it), and to be
reunited with his penis. What else
do you want? Gore, violence,
priests getting anally violated with
crucifixes, it's got it all.
Clitics have accused you of
being rather phallocentric. How
do you feel about that?
Sexecutioner. Me, being the
sexicutioner, I've always been accused of being a sexibitionist, a
sexistentialist, an egosexist, a sexist
symbolist....

One difficulty I have with this column
is that I take myself and my cooking
very seriously. I get really excited about
cookbooks and how neat adventures in
the kitchen can be, but my readers may
not be so easy to please. Keeping in
mind that green tomato mincemeat may
not make your heart race, here's this
month's recipe.
Hdcng/s Jello Salad
This is a dish that evokes fond
memories of many summers spent with
my grandparents in the town of Virden,
Manitoba. It may not appeal to the
hardcore city kid's palate, but I think a
modest gelatin salad is quite refreshing
and entertaining. Do not substitute
other flavours like lemon or raspberry
until you have tried the original: the
colour is wrong for a vegetable salad,
and to my mind (mouth), so is the
flavour.
You will need:
A 1 L jelly mold (get a pretty one: this
can add greatly to the appeal. If you
have better things to spend your
money on and can't borrow one, an
ordinary bowl—preferably steep-
sided—will do).
1 pkg. (85g) lime jello powder
1 cup boiling water
1 cup cold water
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. vinegar (the white kind—wine
vinegar would do in a pinch, I guess)
4-6 medium carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
Digression: celery is a crucial
ingredient.Many people underestimate
the power of celery; thinking it has no
flavour, that it's just Mother Nature's
brand of packaged green water... Au
contraire! Celery leavesare the crucial
ingredient in my mum's stuffing recipe
and this salad just won't have that
fresh, crunchy taste without the stalk.
Don't leave it out.
Dissolve the lime jello in boiling
water, stir. Add the cold water, salt and
vinegar. Grate carrots and add to the
jello mixture along with remaining
ingredients. Rinse jelly mold with water
and pour in jello mixture. Chill until
For the quintessential prairie
touch you probably want to unmold
and serve this on a big lettuce leaf.
(You know to wrap the mold in a hot
cloth or rinse in hot water briefly to
unmold it, right?) Jello salad is perfect
buffet lunch fare, alongside the cold
meat and cheese platter, the potato chips
and the other salads: potato, bean and
so on. Avoid coleslaw, too many grated
carrots in one placet
Another summer nostalgia trip is
outdoor concerts. No, not
Lollapalooza—the Boggy Creek Music
Festival in the summer of '83. Three
days of drinking, carousing (for the
grown-ups) and music. Boxcar Willie
was scheduled to play but he' didn't
make it so I fell in love with bluegrass
instead. Recently I had a chance to
experience the same kind of joy at an
outdoor conceit of a smaller scale.
Though not off icially part of the NCRC
Rock Against Stupidity line-up, the
Goblins played a lunchtime show in
the field out at UBC. A variety of fans
assembled: small children, tourists,
CiTR types.
The connections to food here
are two. The first is that, as I said, it
was a lunchtime concert and the second
is that one of the Goblins regularly
shares his lunch with me and we go
out with friends every Thursday for
hot'n'sour soup.
As can be seen from their photo,
the Goblins are quite unusual. Their
music matches up, altogether a unique
package. Check them out at the Cruel
Elephant's birthday bash.
Moving to another culinary
adventure, duck eggs, I had a duck egg
omelette recently which was delicious
and tasted like an ordinary omelette.
For this
reason I
boiled or coddled. A boiled duck egg
has a white that is slightly more
translucent and bluish, and a yolk that
ispaler. Well, actually the yolk varies
just as much as in chicken eggs,
depending on thediet of the bird.The
eggs seemed to be a little larger and
had beautiful cream and beige
speckled shells. Despite appearances,
these still taste pretty much like hens'
eggs. And for the concerned citizen,
I don't think there's any such thing as
a battery duck.
Have a nice time in the rest of
the summer and watch for next
month's back-to-school bag lunch
recipes! Bye-bye!

Our second CD

Being based in

extremely well on

number one
across the country
after it was

very well in
certain pockets of
the U.S. and all
over Europe.
How do you

Digitial Poodle
places the
■ emphasis on the
OS     sound  textures
Digital Poodle is a young, up and
coming industrial band from
Toronto. I interviewed member
Mouth 392 via fax to their record
company Death of Vinyl. A brief
introduction but there's no point in
me rambling when you can read all
you need to know about the band for
yourself.
Discorder: Perhaps a history is in
order?
Digital Poodle was formed in late
1987, as a studio-only project I
began experimenting with a very
basic set-up of one drum, one
keyboard and a tape-machine. When
I had amassed enough recordings
that were somewhat coherent and
that I was satisfied with, I released
them on the first Digital Poodle
cassette. Pay Attention. The
following year, I began collaborating
with Pupka Frey (who also has his
own recording project, DIN) on some
trades, and we released two more
cassettes, in the following years.
At this point, we were fully
aware of networking our music via
mail order ortrading with other like-
minded musicians, from all over the
globe. Great care was put into
packaging our releases....We
considered our cassettes as final
products, and not "demos", as so
many bands do.
It wasn't until 1989 that we
began our live concerts. Our first
shows were always grouped with
several experimental-type bands on
the bill, which was great, since we
automatically had the chance io play
to appreciative crowds. The early
concerts were quite crude, but at the
same time, we were discovering and
developing our sound. Since then,
we've developed great crowds in
Toronto, the Niagara region,
Montreal and Ottawa, so far our
debut 12", followed by our first CD
entitled, Soul Crush. We put out our
second CD Work Terminal in early
April.
Is there a big industrial scene in
Toronto?
Yeah, there is a sort of industrial
scene in Toronto. Toronto is
traditionally a very rock'n'roll city.
So many of the alternative or
otherwise different bands stick
together, by playing shows together,
hanging out, and so on. I wouldn't
say that there is a specific Toronto
Sound per se since many of the
industrial bands approach theirmusic
from different angles and use
different instruments.
Digital Poodle is a purely
electronic/percussion based group.
Guitars are definitely NOT part of
our sound! Other T.O. groups such
as DHI, Masochistic Religion and
Dogpile are more guitar rock/sludge
orientated. !Bang Elektronika and
V.N. V Nation both play a brand of
high-energy techno beat
My Personal favourite T.O.
band is Crawl/Child who, live, are a
cross between pure intense
whitenoise/feedback and grindcore.
They should be releasing their debut
CD in the fall also on DOVe.
To answer your question, yes,
the scene in Toronto is tight knit,
since everybody hangs out at the
same afterhours clubs, though a lot
of dumb little rivalries still exist
g^      of singer/
songwriterislong
,_-. dead! Having said
__a that, the words or
■» slogans that we
use are not completely banal either!
The words on Soul Crush dealt
mainly with my experiences in
Estonia, when I visited there about
2 years ago, when the country was
still under illegal Soviet Rule. It's
all part of my personal experience
and the politics I'm interest in.
What's happening with Digital
Poodle in the future?
The ROIR label out of New York
will be releasing our Work Terminal
CD domestically, which has been
available as a European import.
We're also putting out a new
five track CD single, Elektronik
Espionage in mid-July, to coincide
with our tour. The new tracks are
much different from our previous
output...For one, the tempos are
considerably faster and the
programming has become more
complex. We've spent quite some
time collecting new sounds and
samples for our next full-length
album out in the fall.
Tell me more about your side
projects?
Besides DP, I also record with the two
members of Mona Lisa Mescaline, a
localT.O. group, underthe moniker of
Command Co. Our debut full-length
CD should also be out in the falL
Russell Wallace of Vancouver's
Dreamspeak guested on vocals and
electronics on one trade, recorded while
he was in Toronto last year. The
Command Co sound is farmore tekno/
new beat orientated than DP.
K.O.M.A. is Digital Poodle's
power electronics-experimental
project We veiy recently released a 6-
track cassette of some our pieces to
coincide with our opening slot on
U.K. 's Nocturnal Emissions' Canadian
tour. We thought it would be
challenging to completely improvise
on stage for about twenty minutes
each night. There are no dance beats in
KOM.A. Tracks are composed using
treated tapes, short wave radio and
samplers. It's all pretty self-indulgent,
but the audiences seemed to appreciate
what we were doing.
How did you hook up with Zoviet
FVance?
Zoviet Prance are another influential
'ambient-experimental-industrial'
group from the U.K. After 10 years
and over 12 albums, ZF toured North
America for the first time, starting in
Toronto and Montreal, where we had
the chance to open for them. Before
they continued onto their American
conquest we passed them one of our
tapes which, they later claimed, they
played almost every night before going
on stage.
When Zoviet France returned
from their exhaustive tour to Toronto,
they expressed interest in reworking
or remixing one of our tracks wilh
them. We set up the studio time, where
the six of us sat around a long boardroom type table, littered with a lot of
our combined gear. We began reworking the track "Soul Gush," the
title track off of our first album. The
original bassline and the beat were
thrown out, and then the tempo slowed
down! We all locked into an ambient-
house groove. The first version of the
track came to 22 minutes long! We
tried a radio edit which was around
fifteen minutes and was later edited to
the final eleven minutes. Originally,
this track appeared only on a limited to
300 copies 12"single that we released,
and was later included on Work
Terminal. I've heard that the original
12" pressing was selling for over $30
Tdl me more about your magazine
Machine Power*.
Machine Power is a half-sized
magazine that we publish whenever
we have the chance. Distribution is
handled mainly through the mail,
though we sold several hundred copies
directly to record shops as well We
conduct interviews wilh experimental/
electronic musicians that we admire
such as PGR, 808 State, Kevin key,
Mason Jones and so on. There's also
tons of re views of mainly experimental
records that we enjoy or that we've
been sent from all comers of the globe.
Publishing the magazine gives us Ihe
chance to express our views on the
current stateof music in an interestingly
layed out manner. Once again, the
popularity of MachinePower has been
made possible through contacts and
word of pen via the underground mail
network. Anyone can join in on this
last vestige of freedom of expression!
© A
based Jerden
label (and it's associated labels
Panorama and Piccadilly) did capture on wax many a choice cut of

rawk V rock.
Yessiree, the Pacific Northwest happened to be oozing with
punk frat combos at this time and
who better to capture them in their
full glory, bellowing uncompromising, gut-wrenching noise, than
Jerden Records. No, we ain't

Bards.Rocky and His Friends, The
Devilles, and the group that could
blow away anybody, anywhere,
anytime, the,... ahem,... Sonics*.
Kindly Jerden founder, Jerry
Dennon put his ear to the receiver
Nardwuar: Who are you?
Jerry Dennon: I'm Jerry Dennon,
Nardwuar.
You're not Dave Jerden?
Uh, negative. No, I'm not
Have you ever been confused
with Dave Jerden at all?
Uh, not recently. No.
'Cause when I saw Dave Jerden was doing 54-40 and
Faith No More, I was going,
"Ali right, he's going to get
that '60s northwest punk feel
back," but it wasn't the same,
(t wasn't Jerry Dennon. You
produced the original "Louie
Louie" by the Kingsmen,
right?
That is correct.
Did you produce the actual
recording that we hear on the
record today?
No, I produced it in the sense that
I was not in the studio waving a
baton. I caused it to happen in the
sense that a guy in the radio station
in Portland in 1963 called me up
and wanted metorecord this group
that he had working with him.
So we got involved in the
Kingsmen, kind of sight unseen.
But I insisted that they do "Louie
Louie." I'm not even sure Ken
Chase was there but that's how —
Ken Chase and Jerry Dennon get
credit for produdng it actually.
My role in producing it was in the
sense that we put it out on our own
label and we worked for many
long weeks before the thing finally happened for us.
What label was that?
It was on, guess what, the Jerden
label. ("Louie Louie " b/w
"Haunted Castle," Jerden #712)
To be asked to release the
Kingsmen, you must have
had an established relationship in the music field to begin with.
At that time, I was also doing promotion with other labels so the
radio station population knew me
and I had been putting out a couple
of other things on local groups in
the Northwest area. That is how
Ken Chase was aware of me.
That's great! They phoned
you up to release it.
You've got it!
How did the Sande label play
a part in this?
The memory is foggy but I can tell
you what I do recall. Another person at a competitive radio station
— and this is back in the days of
AM radio and basically you had
two competitors in Portland. One
was a little more successful than
the other, KISN, Ken Chase was
the program director there. His
competitor was a station known as
KGON, and there was a fellow
named Roger Hart who had ari
afternoon shift. At any rate, he
also managed a group called Paul
Revere and the Raiders. From some
sort of competitive situation, Roger
and the Raiders cut "Louie Louie"
and put it out on Roger's own
label, which was Sande. He actually had success ahead of us in the
sense that he was able to convert
that Sande release into a recording
contract for the Raiders with Columbia. They took on "Louie
Louie" and started having good
Fortunately, the gods were
smiling on me because within a
few weeks of that time we were
able to break the record through a
friend of mine in Boston and a
label called Scepter Wand out of
New York was very responsive.
We did an instantaneous deal with
them. They put the record out
They really knew more about street
level promotion of rhythm and
blues and rock product than Columbia and they just literally beat
Columbia on every market across
the country, with the exception of
Denver or something.
You really had the
tions!
We worked hard at it
Your past musical experience
had been with ERA Records
and Dolton before Jerden?
ERA was a little independent in
Los Angeles that had some neat
success in the '50s and into the
'60s. That was good ground for
me to learn about the business.
Prior to lhat, I was here in Seattle
with a label that was a total startup that also had some neat success
in 1959 when our first release,
which was something called
"Come Softly To Me" by the Fleetwoods, went to NumberOne in the
country. So we had some real
streel-level knowledge of how to
get records on the radio and make
them work, we got lucky.
Have you ever heard of Fred
Cole of Dead Moon and
Weeds fame?
Only names. That's all they are to
He has the actual machine
that "Louie Louie" was mastered on.
You've got to be kidding me.
No, he continues pressing
45s on his Tombstone record
label and he masters them
on the actual machine that
"Louie Louie" was mastered
What a guy!
He lives in Portland.
I did not know that.
Just think, this legendary machine he has. And just think,
if he could bring you together
to that machine, he'd have
two-thirds of the ingredients.
Ha ha! I don't know where that
takes us but that's alot of fun
anyways.
Where is the actual equipment that the Kingsmen recorded "Louie Louie" on?
I have no idea but it was done very
archaically. I guess, at the time, it
would not have been a studio lhat
would have been called stale-of-
the-art recording but it was an okay
studio. It really was not a music
studio. It was called Northwestern
Recording in Portland, and their
claim to fame, really what kept
them in business, was doing advertising work. Music wasn't really their norma] thing. The group
went in as an accommodation because al least one ofthe guys in the
group, at the time when they were
recording, was going to high school
so they literally couldn't get out of
town. I am assuming that Northwestern was probably one of a
couple of studios in town that actually had the equipment to record
music, though they were not known
for that sort of thing. So where the
equipment is, God only knows.
There's such a cool drum
sound on that recording. The
whole sound of "Louie Louie"
is like one of the most excellent sounding records, I think,
ever. Ever. Really, it's just
the ultimate.
Let's face it, a lot of people get
lucky but in those days people
thought monoaurally. People
thought as faras balance when you
were doing something and recording something live, you were really cognizant ofthe balance then.
You know, later, when you started
getting mullitrack recording and
everyone got an isolated track, it...
wasn't that important to try andi;
get the total righl out of the gel-go.
And I'm talking aboul a recording
technique which is recording wilh

Did you ever do actual miking or—
Oh yeah, as the years went

and at lhal lime il was still two-

we weal with it It W4*n'l high-
tech. It was just gul and car aline
time. Later it became three-track
recording and ihen. ob boy, big
time in the tale *60» tl became
eight-track i recording.;
And you're Jerry Dennonl
Speaking live from the Jerden record offices in downtown Seattle, Washington.
Thafs correct. We've rcaaivaied
the company. Originally Jerden
was started in 1960 here in Seattle.
Il was active ihrough the '60s I've
had different, companies and different names, and gol oul of the
business a couple of times and
then tart year, in September of
1V91,1 decided lo gel back inlo ihe
music business and lap into some
of the stuff ia our vaults. Wc jusl
said, "Why nol? Let's call it Jerden . re -establish the label, and start
over and have some fun,"
"Louie Louie" only cost $37
to record.
ActuaUy I think h was $44 but wc
don't need to get lhal technical,
$44. It went on to make millions, obviously. Do you get
any sort of credit for being
on the actual labet, you know,
"Produced by Jerry Dennon"?
I don't recall—
Any royalties, or...?
Oh, no. You see, whal happened,
it's a very sad story and I won't get
into the details,Scepter Wand went
into bankruptcy sometime in the
early '70s—
How could they? They made
all that money off of "Louie
Louie"?
Well, that's a good question. That
might take a few more days to get
an answer to. Tomakea long story
short, the actual royalties that are
due the Kingsmen group and lhat
are due Jerry Dennon are probably
in the millions of dollars and we
don't see any of it. That's a very
touchy issue that is probably going into some sort of legal resolution very shortly.
So the band almost got nothing for that?
Since Scepter Wand went out of
business, the royalty stream
stopped. So, all these records you
pick up on labels like—attdl don't
mean any disrespectbecause they
are all nice people—tike Rhino.
and someone fini sent mc a CD
from England on the Charly labd.
those are basically all np-offs.
They are legal np<rffs but ihey are
rip-offs because we don't get anything, the Kingsmen don't get anything. This happens in ihe music
business. It's very sad bui ifs
something we are trying to go back
and resolve in some fashion.
Another Interesting thing
about "Louie Louie," is that
when the Kingsmen were on
TV shows they weren't allowed to lip-sync to the actual version of "Louie
Lcula -?
Well, again, I don't mean to get
into anybody's face ot bend
anybody's nose but ihc
story, which I ara
you probably know, is
from ihe. time when the
record first broke.
We're ulking now
uotwfly so I ara sure the group got
disdluskmed whfe this Incredible
DM any other groups have
big local hits?
To my knowledge, no one had as
big a regional tangle olher than,
and unfortunatdy h happened to
Enquenc again, "Louie Louie" by
Rockw' Robin Roberts. It was a
monster tut in the siate of Washington, etcetera. Nothing nationally.

man bui not the lead singer
originally, and Lynn struggled a*
far as getting inio singing it because, obviously, be couldn't do
ihe same joband wasnea sounding
like Jack Ely. Thafs my sense of
the story behind that.
Why did the Sonics switch
from Etiquette Records to
Jerden? Was it something to
do with you having national
distribution?
That*s correct. There were aeru-
aUy a couple of things. Looking
back. 1 think the Biiqueue people
did a wonderful job wuh the Sonics, boi iwo things happened hi the
1964-1%5. One. ihey had a monster h.t with "Psycho" and The
Witch" locally but tbey didn'l sell
enough copies outside of Washington, or Oregon or whatever got
into B.C. Nothing happened na~
bill they
eoutdn*
spread; and you
also had the fact lhai the
Ktiqueue label is owned by a very
major group in the Pacific Northwest called the Waller*. The Waiters and the Sonics are, in a sense,
corapetiuve, so that was what 1
think influenced the group to leave
and come ovct io us. We did have
national distribution and we 're the
people who finally got the group
happening ra some other markets.
Unfortunately, wc wereseverable
lo really break there nationally.
Was it hard to get your product out if you were an independent label in the Pacific
Northwest In the t360s? I
mean, did most bands Who
put out a single sell them off
the stage?
Yeah, I don't think it was quite as
16 E$K_£sIi$Stgi_ refined as it is now, but there was
cither somebody who had a little
label and didn't have distribution
they sold them off the bandstand, or lhattype of thing Again,

How aboul in the northwest?

As amaiter of fact, there was an ad

1 would hasten to suggest that that's
the ftrsi Sub Pop product io make
U into Fred Meyer since ihe reception of that company.
Where is Jerry Roslie, lead
screamer ol the Sonics?
Lead singer, wruer. really the kind
of central creative force I can only
was relatively easy.
When they came to JcTden.
looking back In hindsight,
they themselves were looking
to get a slightly different image
than being—allhough punk was
not a word then—the streaming,
psycho—They were iryreg to find
something that was probably a lit-
tie more pliable for radio stations,
i'm not sure, what the motivation
was, but we obviously had some
sort of indirect uifluence that, when
l look back on it now, I regret
because they softened their sound
the longer ihey were with us.
Were they happy with their
previous recordings?
Tbey were generally so. In the
main, 1 think they weren't When
we first came, t think ihey were
hoping ihey would have a Utile bit
more freedom m what they were
doing, and we involved them both
In recording there in Seattle and

tei. We cut some things in LA in a
ftCit Studio down there that's quile
"well known cdled Goldstar. We
brought in an engineer who had
worked with Phil Spector by the
name of Larry Levine. So we extended their perspective somewhat
while they were with us.
The Sonics recorded the
Zappa tune "Any Way the
Wind Blows" when they were
on Jerden I
Thank you.
That's crazy, manl Was Jerry
Roslie a big Zappa fan or...
Oh yes. Absolutely.
Did Zappa ever know that the
Sonics recorded that song?
I would have presumed but I do
not know that for a fact. I've never
talked to Zappa so I have no idea.
Is there alot of stuff in the
Jerden vaults?
Yes, We've got a lot of stuff, thank
God. I *m just discovering the lape,
although it's thirty years old, has
held tip beat, tifully. So, currently
we're going re to edit the first in a
series of albums called The History of Nr^ihwesi Rock. There will
be twenty selections on thai with a
variety of groups thai I think people will like a lot Peter B lecha, the
rock historian, is involved in the
project.
And I am also in the studio
editing, getting baa to the Kings-
men, tapes that no one has ever
heard. Actually, the group has
never heard them because after
"l-ouic Louie" hit we were asked
by the label w go and get an album
ready as soonas possible. And due
to ihe fad thai one or two of the
guys were m school and had other
constraints, we ended up having lo
do live recording at The Chase.
The original album, the Louie
Louie album, that stayed on
Billboard's chart for over three
years was actually a live recording
except for the "Louie Louie" cm
that was dubbed onto it The rest
of those two days of sessions has
never been heard.
Anyway, I ani editing right
now and the album »i)l contain
something lhat has never been
heard by anybody; and that's
"Louie Louie" with drummer Lynn
Easton singing lead, so that's going to be kind ol fwt Bui we're
going to be coming out with a
variety of stuff from ak* of different groups lhat wc had going on at
the time,
Jerden Records: released
some Vancouver groups...
The Chessmen.
With Terry Jacks!
You gc. it. I think wc did his first
record. ("Mustang" b/w "Mead-
Owlands," Jerden #743))
You also did the Hi-Fives.
("Going Away" b/w "Tort,"
Jerden #730)
That's correct Absolutely. They
should have been a big-time group.
Didn't Jerden release something by the Devilles featuring Wayne Gust?
They're from Vancouver.
You know, I've forgotten that. And
later we did the Kingsmen doing
one of their songs, "Searching for
Love." ("SeaTchin' for Love" b/w
"Mary Lee," Jerden #7)
What are your memories of
the Vancouver scene in the
1960s?
It was great. I had a neat relationship with Red Robinson. He and I
were actually roommates when he
was on KGW in Portland in 1959.
Red, for a while, was going to
make it in the United States. He
was in Portland for a year or two
and then he got his draft notice. I
think he spent some time in Uncle
Sam's wonderful U.S. army, and
the day he got out of the army, he
got on a plane and went back to
Vancouver. I don't think Red's
ever left since. Anyway, Red was
a great conduit for me to Vancouver at the time. I love Vancouver.
In retrospect, I wished we had done
more things up there.
There are some spoken word
albums coming out on Jerden, like Beatles press conferences. Those aren't the
ones that Red did?
Those are exactly the same thing.
Red is the producer, Red is the
But that's Red doing the interview, one of his legendary
interviews in cool.
Thank you.
I talked to Red a couple of
years ago. I asked Red if he
had ever heard of the Sonics,
and Red said, "Ahh, they were
just a bunch of guys in the
garage." And I said, "Argh,
how dare you say this!"
Ha ha!
You recorded lan Whitcomb.
That's correct
Legend has it that when he
was recording the song "You
Turn Me On," an ashtray
dropped and made him falsetto his voice. Is that true?
The falsetto part I'm not sure about,
but the ashtray part, yes. You can
hear il on the recording. We actually did a couple of takes of that
song; on one of the takes ifs on
there, and on the other it isn't but,
yes, you can hear it.
Mr. Dennon, do you have any
Elvis 1962 World's Fair stories at all?
I do not, I was not here in 1962.1
was in California saluting everything. I was in the army sol missed
the World's Fair.
Speaking of the army, how
about any Hendrix barfing accounts?
Unfortunately, no, nut he did hang
out at his studio that we later did
alot of recording in. I missed the
whole Jimi Hendrix thing. He did
almost nothing locally so very few
people were really aware of him in
Seattle because, as you know, he
was discovered in England.
How about Brian Jones
pants-stealing episodes?
I don't have any of those. Yikes,
we should have rehearsed this....
Where are the Paul Revere &
the Raiders costumes? Are
they available for purchase?
I would think so. If you send the
right amount of money to Paul, I
am sure he'll send you one.
Don Grady of the TV show My
Three Sons apparently
played in the Northwest-
based band The Yellow Balloon.
I couldn't attest to it as fact
Was the media very supportive of the Northwest rock
scene in the 1960s?
To a point, yes. In many ways they
were moreso then than they are
now, but it's all changed.
Back then, did there happen
to be anything like the Seattle Rocket magazine?
No. For awhile I published something called—regretably—Disc A
Go Go which was kind of a knock-
off of some of the tabloids coming
out of England at the time. That
was for a couple of years in the
mid-'60s. But not until the Rocket
came along was there really anything in that style.
Do any videos or Alms exist
of this era?
To my knowledge, negative.
Aww! There would be so
much cool stuff, like the Wailers were on American Bandstand.
Yeah, for instance, Ian Whitcomb
was on Shindig. I've got a kinescope, which is a negative film of
the show. The Kingsmen have
some video of when they were on
Shindig. That type of thing is available but I don't know how many
people have copies of it.
There is a Northwest Music
Archive, though, right?
Spearheaded    by    Peter
Blecha.
That's correct That is going to
happen but they're still looking
forfuhding. They'regoingtohave
a display at the Museum of History and Industry here in Seattle,
but they're still looking for endowments and what-have-you.
And finally, Jerry Dennon of
the legendary—do you like
being called "legendary
1960s punk rock producer"?
I think it's the first lime but I love

to make the plight of the underdog known, we just couldn't see
the validity in an expose on
"where Kreviss really got their

bass for mmm hmmm, got the
clap." It was not inspiring to our
mission. We did however field a

drink comments.
What People Are Saying
About The Cruel Elephant's
Attitude Towards Responsible Drinking
"I was fucking pregnant, obviously pregnant, and they
wouldn't give me a free nonalcoholic drink."
"One time they cut me off. I
mean I'm a 1001b girl and I
know when I've had enough
for fuck's sake."
"They're a bar! They don't
care about responsible drinking, look at all the beer signs."
"AHHhhhhh, what the fuck
are you on about maaan?"
"Who'd wanna be a responsible drinker there, the coffee is
terrible."
Profane Existence and
Maximum Rock and Roll did
an asshole thing. John Clarke
of CJSF printed up an extensive list of venues, bands et al,
for the quintessential "Book
Your Own Fucken Life" D.I.Y
tour guide. John didn't specify
whether or not any of it was
D.I.Y.(do it yourself, twerp)
so the bastards didn't print
any of it. Therefore, making
B.C. look considerably sadder than it is. We did outshine
Alberta however. The only
band Alberta had listed was
one called Granpa's
Magick Pinecone while
B.C. had both Facepuller
and Drone.

that looked like it should have
read, "Towne and Countrye

dwell on the aesthetics. If I
wanted to be "more professional" I'd say it has a Freddy

simply change the name.
Aging Youth Gang
Ex-members of the Spores
and Curious George, or so
I've been told, were involved
in producing this professional
sounding demo. Punk rock
dominates the sound lyrically ...almost reminiscent
of Vancouver's
Subhumans. Fast, upbeat,
catchy and talented.
Cane Toads
The sound is slow, heavy and
melodic, with a whiny girl
singing songs about some kind
of weird trips...it sounds really good. Picture, if you will,
Soundgarden mushed up with
the Fastbacks. That's not that
bad.

Sicko
High energy, happy sounding
music that you can really get
into. It isn't that often that a
tape makes you want to move
to be closer to the band but
this demo just keeps getting
better with each song. Sicko
is definitely one of the better
bands out of Seattle. These
talented guys should consider
relocating to Berkeley and
signing to Lookout! Records.

Contempt
This is a perfect example of
what happens when a group
of guys get angry enough to
start wrecking shit just to get
together and put out music.
Raw punk packaged professionally. One of the all-time
greatest hardcore bands I've
ever heard, and no songs about
girls either.
Thumbscrew
Holy, time warp. While listening to this demo I was transported back in time to the
magical year of 1985 into the
hardcore realm of Washington, DC. Bands like Minor
Threat and Uniform Choice
are obvious influences for
these fast paced rednecks. In
all honesty, it's refreshing to
see a band with such an obvious distaste for hippy
trendoids. (What's with all the
pseudo-environmentalists
anyways?) A talented group
of musicians, I'd buy this.
Sinner's Squad
Without wanting to sound
nasty, I would say that Sinner's Squad are trying too hard
to be the Chili Peppers, and
they 're not doing that great of
a job of it. It sounds okay but
I would never buy it from some
guys who just think they're
punk. Maybe they sound better live but I wouldn't know.

Wow! There's just something
about a talented jazz band
that grabs my attention, and
I'm not really that much of a
jazz fan. Calling these guys
just a jazz band wouldn' t even
do them justice. They sound
like the Mighty Mighty
Bosstones but with less of a
ska influence. Thi s band won
CiTR's Shindig in '88, has 7
members and have had over
200 since they formed. Great
band and great press packaging.

1250     RICHARDS     ST. 688     2648 Sheesh. ..another month, another slew
of seven inches. Will the vinyl explosion ever stop? Let's hope not This
time I've found myself on more rock
and roll adventures, taking me to exotic stops like Calgary and Edmonton. In Calgary I stopped by CJSW,
the local college radio station to talk
on DJ Jaime Frederick's show "Declaration of Independence" ( he plays
only indie stuff). I ended up snooping
around and stumbled onto some brand
new and way-cool "now" stuff.
Teenage Fanclub have successfully dodged theirmajor label and
have released a single on K Records
of Olympia. This record is #26 in the
International Pop Underground series and it's a great record in the
tradition of everything that is K. The
two songs sound way better and rock
way harder than anything on
Bandwagonesque (their lush, almost
glazed major label debut), even if
they are both covers. The A-side is an
Alex Chilton tune called "Free Again."
It's a superb song that rocks pop-hard,
reminding me of one of those really
great Partridge Family rave-ups. The
B-side is an old Beat Happening hit
entitled "Bad Seeds." Primitive,
crunchy, rockin'. Too bad this version of "Bad Seeds" wasn't around
when the Beat Happening tribute
album was being sliced'n'diced.
Movin' on down the line I
found my fortune cookie prize, the
latest from The Muffs out o' California. This band is fantastic! Renaissance/retro tom-boy rock and roll
in its drums.
And I thought
their first single
on Sympathy
was good! This
sucker's on the
Aussie
Dogmeat
records (famed
for releasing
Dictators stuff
down unda),
and man, are
they lucky they
got The Muffs
now, cuz their gonna be huge! Why
are the punk-est chicks all named
Kim?
And what singles column anywhere in the world would be complete without reviewing yet another
45 by  England's best Thee
Headcoats. The aforementioned
singles label, Sympathy for the
Record Industry, has hit up the
mighty Billy Childish fora couple
more tunes to add to his absolutely
massive discography. Here, the
world's favourite punk rock trio
cover a song the Sonics made famous "Have Love Will Travel." A
good version, proving once again
why the Sonics are the Roman Gods
of today's rock and roll. The B-side
is more of a gutteral demand than a
song: "Give It To Me!" All in all
another cool Childish record to add
to the racks.
Up next is a record from the
Imp label of Portland. These guys
seem to be having some sort of
competition with the other local
Portland label T/K for who can put
out the most 7"'s ever! So far they
seem to be neck and neck. Putting
Imp slightly ahead of T/K is The
Spinanes' "Suffice." A soft and
soothing couple of songs. Lucky
this wasn'tafull album orl'dbefast
asleep! How about a quick easy-out
comparison: The Indigo Girls and
Mecca Normal meet They Might
Be Giants for a picnic and doze-off.
Don't get me wrong, I do like it in a
sleepy sort of way. It's...nice.
And that's it for cool Calgary
radio station finds. Too bad most of
the great bands in Calgary feel more
inclined to put out tapes instead of
7"'s    (Choads,
bash attack of Ramones/MTX style
punk rawk. Really good stuff. And
with intellectual and thought provoking song titles like "New Song,"
"Slow Song," and "PopSong," these
dudes will no doubt be King-Pin
gods in mere decades.
"Stop gabbin' on about punk
all the time" you say? No problem,
shit-face, how .
MOSERAll-
Cruz, California is home to a great
combo called Captain Crunch
(not to be confused with the lame,
now-defunct, Montreal band of the
same name). They've got a 7" EP
out, entitled "Girl At The Zoo." It's
aS song, straight-out, stripped down
out: one on the
Standard Record Label and the other
on the fab Sympathy. Both are
chock-filled to the rim with that P.
Surfer shereing, reverbatoned,
poundin' instrumental "wave rock."
An act of true genius.
But wait, snobbish boors,
there's more! I've been looking for
this here 7" discus for years, finally
I found it and LOVE it! It's Ameri-
ca'sgreat-sttop-teencornboforThe
Untamed Youth with their rare,
out of print, Christmas single "Santa's Gonna Shut'em Down" b/w
"Santa's Midnight Run." A bit out
of season but who gives a fuck?!
These guys have been my absolute
favourite band for years and this
single only adds to my adoration of
greatness. The Untamed Youth are
the best elements ofthe Beach Boys,
the Dictators, Elvis, and the
Trashmen all rolledintoone! WANT
ROCK'N'ROLL? GET THE UNTAMED YOUTH! THEY"RE THE
GREATEST
Whew! Gimme a sec to
straighten my hair and put my shoes
back on and we'll get on with this
shit Just in from Montreal comes
the maraca shakin', head shag gin'
frog-men The Cry ptics, on Primitive Records. Yet another bunch of
mop-topped Gruesomes disciples,
these guys dish out the "wyld" r&b
garage punk, screaming and yelling
about "Bad girls," "stupid girls" and
girls that have simply "gone away."
This ferociously French, fuzz-
drenched, garage combo sound a bit
too exact to the Gruesomes forme,
but hey, all you crypt-kickers will 1-
o-v-e it.
Headin' southeast into
Minneapolis,
MN, flows forth
The Loose
Rails with their
EP "Jerk." Funny
thing, the cover
advertises 4 tunes
but I only got two!
The two I did get
seem to be in the
vein of that standard mid-west pop-
rock sound a la the
"^-*i Replacements/
Magnolias. The
songs are good, extremely melodic
and catchy, making me think of
what ABBA would sound like if the
chicks played electric guitars and
Sven and Bjdm shouted them choruses. (That's a complement. ABBA
rule.) A good poppy single.
Yes! I found a diamond in the
rough! Every time I'm getting down
about the horrific world of bad music, I wish I could find something to
lift me out of that regulated depression. Too often I don't, this time I
did. They are called
Captain 9's and
the Knickerbocker Trio and
they are hilariously
cool. As the top left $
hand comer of their
cover says, "file
under PUNK
ROCK." And that's
what it is all right.
Fast, furious, and
very funny punk
rock the way it used
to be: a mockery and
a rebellion.
This 4 song EP is titled "Rock
and Roll Paper Route," also the title
song. The coverofthe record is a pic
of a shot gun stuffed into a newspaper delivery bag. The song is an
equally demented punk rock hit
The flipside features a couple of
other "true punkers," the shiner being "I Think I Wanna Be": "I think
I wanna be a plumber/I'll switch the
pipes under yer sink/ So you get a
glass full of toilet water/ When you
pour yourself a drink." Need they
say more? A great find, and an instant collectors' item that comes
complete with a booklet, a sticker
and a photo. Captain 9's and the
Knickerbocker Trio have a new fan.
Almost a Canadian parallel to
the Knickerbocker Trio is Toronto's
Leather Uppers'debut 4 song Ep.
Pressed on sexy emerald vinyl, this
two man guitar and drums band is
also primitive, poorly recorded and
hilarious! These Torontonian nut-
are like some rockin' out in the
summer of '73. The songs are short,
fast, single-note rockers, with
rediculous lyrics and mock-rock
choruses. We'realsotreatedtomany
candid photos of these two '70s
children smoking cigars in matching pant suits, or simply "chatting"
on the phone. A great, fun, Canadian package. Pick it up if you can
find it
And speaking of 70's children, my last pick this month is
from LOCAL rockers Tankhog
They've just released a fucking great
new single from Mint Records and
wow, this one smokes! The A-side,
"The Freight Train Song" is in top
HE i-HElOiVl 1 HA IN SO.-.
yet! The
B-side on this
bitch is the
perfect epilogue: a de-
psychobilly
rocker "Jealous Trains," chugs at a high speed
rockin' pace from start to finish.
Theband sounds great, Mint's packaging is great, and hey girls, there's
even a Tankhog nudie centrefold
inside! An excellent local record.
See you in the fall.
Finally BlackPearl, Yo Yo's second
CD, has been released. Make Way
for the Motherlode was the name of
Yo Yo's first release and it did quite
well. It was there that Yo Yo proved
she had what it took to flow with a
quickness not heard often by a
female rapper. Rumour had it that
Black Pearl was to be way more
hardcore! Well, I've got some
disappointing news for ya...it
ain'tYo Yo's style has definitely
changed for the worse.
This 1992 CD, off of EastWest
Records, features Ice Cube as the
executive producer while DJ Pooh
and Sir Jinx take turns producing
the various tracks. Kam even drops
a few background vocals in "A Few
Good Men," while Ice Cube starts
things off with "The No Tnao."Black
Pearl features Yo Yo's first 12"
release, "Home Girl Don't Play
Dat," which is kinda slammin'
except it's just like a female version
of "How to Survive in South
Central" with the same set up of
Rule #1... Rule #2...etc. Sony, but
it's already been used regardless of
the hardcore production. Many of
the tracks, like "So Funky," "You
Should Have listened," and "Black
PearL" contain R&B sing-songy
choruses which is the greatest
downfall.
It seems like someone has had
a lot influence on Yo Yo, as far as
image is concerned, because Yo Yo
has become softer, more gentle, with
a pretty face, a bunch of funky
snapshots, and R&B bullshit
choruses. Yo Yo, however, does
continue to throw down the lyrics
about women leaving their men if
they are gettin' beat on, and it is
very clear that this lady is tryin' her
damndest to get it through her
homegirls heads that the "Black
Pearl's]" are very precious and
respect is always due! This is one
stroke of positivity. All in all this
release just doesn't kick it
Yo Yo's speed has definitely
been tampered with because instead
of crazy lyrics flyin' off her tongue,
she's been slowed down and drops
only half of what she's capable of.
On some of the tracks Yo Yo even
seems to try and stretch words out to
make it to the next verse! The
production isn't that great either
because of having to accommodate
theR& B stuff I gather. OvetaliBlack
Pearl seems to be more for the ladies.
Somehow I can't see the guys kickin'
back anddiggin'it If you're an ignorant
girl whoneeds some schoolin',"havin'
a baby won't keep a man," then pick it
up, otherwise, walk on by!
Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth
have a new 16 song album out titled
Mecca and the Soul Brother. It's
quite difficult to listen to this album
the whole way through because it all
sounds the same. A lot of the tunes
are really mellow and more on the
R & B tip. (What's up with that?) As
far as the deliveiy goes, it drops on
the beat and is steady flowin'. The
best song is "Ghettos of the Mind"
which is pretty damn mellow! On
"The Basement" Heavy D appears
along with Robo-Oand Grap & Didi,
while Grand Puba is featured on
"Skinz." This release isn't very good
and nothing to add to your collection,
really.
What's the numba one rap
group this month? Well, thank
goodness there's one crew that I
haven't mentioned yet. Das EFX!
This group was picked up by EPMD
at a rap contest. Das EFX performed
but didn't win. They were going to
call it quits right then, since they
were both just graduating, but
EPMD offered them a record deal
and, needless to say, they took it
"They Want EFX" was the crew's
first 12" release, and the new one
outis "MicChecka."Dre AndSkoob
have a unique style: their rhymes
are riddled with similes, and
metaphors and cliches; they can be
funny and crude at the same time,
but you have to listen carefully cau se
they're quick to change topics. The
beats are raw although kinda hard to
pinpoint any particular topic
mentioned. Das EFX are just a crazy
crew with some crazy-assed shit,
lotsa EFX and plenty of support
from Parrish Smith and E-Double
(EPMD). Ohyah.liketheirlast track
on the CD Dead Serious, Das EFX
is "Straight Out the Sewer."
LARRY    Q  JAMES BROWN
Love, Power, Peace • Live
At The Olympia, Paris 1971
(Polydor)
Are you ready for James Brown:
the hardest working man in show
business, Soul Brother Number 1,
The Godfather of Funk!? Yaah!
This hour-plus CD is the only Uve
recording of James Brown with
the original J. B.' s backing him up.
The line-up includes
William "Bootsy"
Collins on bass, John
"Jambo" Stalks and Don
Juan "Tiger" Martin both
on drums, Hearlon
"Cheese" Martin on
rhythm guitar, Bootsy's
brother Phelps "Catfish"
Collins on lead guitar,
and a four-piece horn
section including
trombone player Fred
Wesley. Bobby Byrd,
with Mr. Brown since the
early fifties, handles
M.C.ing the famous call-
and-response vocals, and
This recording was
originally recorded at
The Olympia Theatre in
Paris, France on eight-
track in the middle of a
European Tour. The
recording was mixed
down and scheduled to
be released as a triple
album on King Records
in '71 but James changed
labels to Polydor and
cancelled the release. But
now, from March 8,
1971, out of the Polydor
archives, here it is for
you in '921
This is James Brown in his
element, putting a live audience
under his spell and giving up the
funk! Right from the first snare
pop, The Man and The Band
deliver. Catfish is smokin' with
his unique way of playin' rhythm
and lead guitar at the same time,
especially in the incredibly intense
"Ain't It Funky Now." The ten
minutes of "Get Up, Get Into It,
Get Involved," and "Soul Power"
has some of the funkiest live
drumming and scratch guitar that
you ever heard. And "It's a New
Day" is a killer.
The power of the youthful
J.B.'s in these songs sound like
nothing could ever stop them;
except Mr. Brown who brings 'em
down to play some of his older
ballads: "Bewildered," "Try Me,"
and a real uptempo "Please, Please,
Please." These songs, where the
band had to hold back when they
wanted to go are probably a part of
the reason Bootsy and Catfish left
the band a week later to catch
George Clinton's Parliament -
Funkadelic Mothership
Connection. The lack of decent
liner notes in the CD was a bit of a
disappointment, but you could
always cut this out and stick 'em in
your CD that you should go out
and get right now! I haven't let
half of the funk out of the bag!

DEEE-LITE
Infinity Within
(Warner)
It's DEEE-Lightfull. It's DEEE-
Licious. It's DEEE-wonderful. It's
Deee-Lite!
Foryou groovaholics and jive
cats, Deee-Lite challenges the
sophomore jinx with a certain
vengance in their second album,
Infinity Within. On their debut
outing in 1989, Deee-Lite crooned
"Groove is in the Heart", a tune
which found itself as the most
played dance track in 1990. This
time around Deee-Lite outdoes
themselves with a collection of 14
songs with their trademark retro
Bring out the mood rings and
lava lamps. Just the cover design
smacks of 70s psychedelia. Funky,
groovy rhythms prevail again on
this album in which, on the first
lis ten, I s truggl ed to place any song
as hit material. It all has the
addictive feel to it, though their
stylings make it too hip for
commercial radio. However, the
unique use of samples and
beatmixes makes this album
destined for your dance music
collection and a local disco near
Infinity Within has a truly
politically correct and socially
resonsible message to it. "Vote,
Baby, Vote" obviously encourages
people to vote. "Rubber Lover"
extolls the virtues of safe
sex. Not to undo
themselves, "I Had a
Dream I Was Falling
Through a Hole in the
Ozone Layer," bemoans
the state of the world's
public's apathy. Even
Lady Miss Kier has
dropped the sexist
'Miss' from her
moniker. This seems all
too Utopian to be true.
But then again they're
Deee-Lite.

DEAD MILKMEN
Soul Rotation
(Hollywood)
Not as good as
Beelzebubba for
humour, but these
college pop faves have
learned to play their
instruments a little better
and some songs catchier
musically. The sound is
muddy on quite a few
songs ("Here Comes Mr.
X," "Belafonte's
Inferno"), the horns on
some songs are cool,
especially "Shaft in
Greenland" and some of the titles
are better than the songs are
("Wonderfully Coloured Plastic
War Toys"), but the underlying
subleties in this seminal Philly
quartet's blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah blah blah blah
blah... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz... .
Oops, excuse me. First I got
lost in cheap doddering
pretentiousness followed by an
attack of narcolepsy. Seriously,
cats, there is nothing on this album
You want good,
diverse, silly power pop? Puck up

these guys may have blown their
wad.

B-52'S
Good Stuff
(Warner)
This is the latest incarnation of the
landmark wave group of the late
70's and early 80's, minus one
member. Back when we were
wriggling on the floor to "Rock
Lobster", most of us wrote-off the
B-52's as one-hit wonder cult
classics. But no, we were wrong.
Under the same auspices, the B-
52's brought out their next album
with the same
formulaic new
wave   drivel.
And    to    our
surprise, timed
to disco
resurgence in
the early 90's,
they scored a
direct hit with
the song "Love
Shack."
In this
latest album,
Good Stuff, we
get more of the
same stuff of the
last album. It
almost seems
like Cosmic
Thing never
ended. Though
minus the one member (her name
escapes me now), Kate Pierson
carries the Go Go-esque
background vocals with the same
girlyfervor. The basic review: save
your money.

(Sony Music)
Yawn. Techno bands should just
stick to singles. Who the fuck
would want to sit through an hour
of remixes of the
Compilations work
because most of
these acts can only
come up with one
song worth
listening to. I have
a solid album by
any of these dance

"Catwalk" and
"Anaesthesia"
singles might be
worth a buy, but the
teutonic samples
are getting mighty
MINISTRY
how stupid I am. So with this Catch
22 in mind, Ministry's new release
is superb: it is the fulfillment of
their earlier promise of the perfect
synthesis of slow dirge punctuated
by wild outbursts of seemingly
un control-able noise and emotion
that is life. But instead of creating
new metaphors and adjectives to
describe the band and its release,
perhaps the words of their press
release will do:
"Jourgensen despises hype
but the relentless power and fire-
and-brimstone inventiveness of
Ministry's sound attracts it like a
swarm of mosquitos...Creem has
already declared that the new
P.r_/mo"9...'invents a new kind of
heavy, as Wagnerian guitars swoop
and fire like Kilgore's helicopters
in    Apocalypse    Now...what
SURPRISE YOUR PIG
The result ranges from
"Hero"'s slyly satiric, unabashedly
metal-headed bombast, to
"Scarecrow"'s anguished cheetah,
to "N.W.O."'s media-inspired,
psycho-sonic take on the meanings
of "New World Order," to the title
track's voodoo/soundtrack
carnival of religious references."
Okay, the band is pretentious,
but the music and the feelings are
honest.

If somebody tells you that Miss

It was The Mind is a Terrible
Thing to Taste, a sonic witches
brew of incendiary metal riffs and
complex layers of samples, that
brought Ministry to the masses—
an accomplishment that, typically,
Jourgensen insists he never
wanted. 'I don't see this music
being accepted on a national level,'
he says, 'if it does happen, it'll be

VARIOUS ARTISTS
Surprise  Your Pig: A
Tribute To R.EM
(Staple Gun)
Actually, it's more like a tribute to
Husker Du with more than half of
the seventeen bands using that
loud, distorted guitar and
screaming, anguished vocals to
vent their post-adolescent
frustrations. At least with such an
approach they don't have to
decipher Michael Stipe's original
mumblings but can instead further
obscure them. Bands like Just Say
No, Jawbreaker, Mr. T Experience,
Flor de Mal, and Jawbox all turn in
listenable, if unspectacular,
treatments of popular and lesser
known REM tunes.
As always with tribute
albums, there are a couple of duds.
In this case the most notable one is
the musically bankrupt Mitch
Easter. His cover of "Shiny Happy
People" is essentially a xerox of
the original. (Really Mitch, what's
the POINT?!)
Surprise Your Pig is a spiffy
little aural treat, but is pretty much
dispensable to most fans unless
you're one of those burning-a-
hole-in-my-pockel types who
absolutely must have a copy of
"Talk About the Passion" sung in
Italian.

Ed crossed his
legs and sullenly
inspected the
fresh run scarring
his favorite pair of
nylons, a victim
of last night's
shoot. "God damn
Tor Johnson," he
mused. "Just
because I couldn't
advance him his
fee
for
shoot, he runs me
into the dolly. I
wish he stuck to
wrestling, that."
The boozy
calm permeating
the diner and its
breakfast regulars
was rippled by the
arrival of a slight
man cloaked in a
long black
raincoat      and
behind which a
tight-lipped
expression
crushed a
cigarrette and the
hung  over bar
patrons       who
dared   look  up
from their coffee
cups. His tautness
relaxed only after spotting the
shapely figure in the canary, white
angora sweater and shiny black
pumps.   .   ."Woody,  you  old
marine!" gushed the twig-like
figure as he and his enthusiasm
strode across the  coffee  and
nicotine stained floor.
"Stan Ridgway...it's been
ages. How's tricks?"
"Just swell, Ed. That's... a
fine ensemble, Mr. Wood. Better
one than the LA symphony. A bit
of a run in the hose, though. Is the
swede giving you grief?"
"Naw, not at all, but in
case he does I'll give him
the Indian Bum. He could
never get out of that one.
Why don't you park here for
breakfast, I'm buying...?"
"Thanks Ed, but those
scotch brunches we used to have
could kill me now. I've got an
appointment with Miles out in
Studio City in an hour. He's
offering me a deal."
"Tell me about it, Stan."
"WeU, Miles wants to issue a
collection of my past stuff, you
know, most of the releases you
can't buy anymore because he's
got 'em out of print."
"You mean The B ig Heat and

"Yeah Ed, that's what I

was. He wants a couple of songs

LOS LOBOS
Kiko
(Slash/Warner)
Masters of a genre they created,
Los Lobos have alternately carried
and dropped the torch of Latino
roots rock for almost a decade.
Lost amongst wedding waltzes,
bastardization of their core sound
for commercial acceptance, and
being swallowed up by their own
influences (La, la, la, la, la, La
Bamba) was a collective
personality that hasn't exercised
its abundant songwriting,
musicianship and fusion of styles
size (16 songs),
styles and imagination. Adopting
a gentleman carpenter's approach,
the band's ability and versitality
builds sixteen divergent songs
inhabited predominately by David
Hidalgo and Louie Perez's writing,
covering some familiar territory
such as blues ("Just
A Man," "That
Train Don't Stop
Here Anymore"),
traditional ("Saint
Behind The Glass,"
"Arizona Skies"),
and a couple of
rockers ("Short
Side of Nothing,"
"Whiskey Trail").
Adding to
their eclectic sound
even further,
they've revealed an
affection for the
mid-seventies low-
("Dream In Blue",
"Angels With Dirty
Faces").
Sandwiched
between these two
waralikes is "Wake
Up Dolores", a
shuffler with a Gene
Krupa beat. "Kiko
and the Lavender
Moon" is a Kurt
Weillian excursion
made even eerier by
Steve Berlin's sax,
and "Peace", a
resigned little song
that Hildalgo
delivers in a loving
(or defeated?) tone
challenges your
perception of its
intent. Never has an
inane, cliche, lyric
standy like "yeah,
yeah, yeah" been so
double edged.
At least their
hearts, not their
veins, are in the right
place.

ONGALA
Mambo
(Real World)
Hailing from
Tanzania, Remmy
Ongala and his
Orchestre Super Matimila paid a
visit to the Real World recording
studios in Wiltshire, England
during August of 1991 to record
an album for WOMAD
Productions, the second for this
label run by Petre Gabriel. This is
African dance music in the jangly,
hypnotic guitar style, overlaid with
messages of political nature or
Remmy's enlightening on the day-
to-day problems of the African
people.
Remmy leads his band of
drummer, bass player, and four
uitarists through some
incredible jams which can
reach ten minutes in length
(Remmy also plays guitar,
when not singing, making for
five guitarists at times). The
standout track is the 8 1/2
minute "No Money, No Life", in
which the band really lets loose
but the second half of the CD is
where things really begin to pick
up. Albeit, none of the tracks are
disappointing and, all in all, this is
an excellent 70 minutes of African
dance music with responsible lyrics
to go with it so you don't have to feel
guilty listening to it over and over.

Happens All the Time
(Park Avenue Records)
I've listened to this opus several
times now and it's failed to make
much of an impression, except as
something to spin during a vegan
potluck or some such non-event.
Happens All the Time gets off
to a less-than-strong start with the
very Cranes-like (good God, is this
post-Cocteau Twins music about to
become a trend?) "Eerie Song." A
recovery is made with "Notmal Life"
and you begin to hope the rest ofthe
songs are this strong, this anchored
in reality, but then "Moment of
Time" falls prey to the same conceits
of "Eerie Song"; so light-er-than-air
and whispy that it ends up drifting
by like so much incense smoke.
Well, you know you're in
trouble when you open up the lyrics
and see, under one ofthe song titles,
"(phonetic)" rather than lyrics.
The rest of the record has its
moments: "Break This Chain" is
mildly funky, and "Changes" is, well,
nice. And...gee,IforgotwhatIwas

24/7 SPYZ
Strength In Numbers
(East/West)
This group has come out with another
hot album, their first with the new
members that played with them the
last couple of shows here. Evidently,
the sound has been altered somewhat
due to this. The album has a definite
metal influence, subduing most of
the funk and other styles involved
but not burying them. Ihefiistcouple
of songs, "Break The Chains" and
"Crime Story" had me thinking this
was going to be a straight heavy
metal thing. These tunes have a lot
in common with the last Metallica
LP,:heavy and flabby. The LP gets
more diverse, thankfully, as it
progresses. Actually, the last 5 or six
songs are kicking, more of what
you'd expect from the Spyz.
"I'm Not Going," "Purple,"
and the reggae-tinged
"Understanding" are a few of the
strongest songs, in the uiban political
vein that 24/7 Spyz seem to be
moving towards. This LP has a
serious tone throughout and the
music accents the messages.
Strength in Numbers is
extremely well-produced, typical of
the band's high standards, and the
talents of the group come through
well. There's even a little
experimental sonic thing at the end
of "Room #9" just to let you know
they're willing to try new things.
The album's new added styles
shouldn'talienate the band's diehard
fans,- and may bring in some new
ones to boot.

CHRIS MARS
Horseshoes and Hand
Grenades
(Smash Records)
Who needs ex-lovers to write about
after you 've been in a postpunk rock
band? Like the bitter Grant Hart/
Bob Mould feud that was fought in
the arena of solo albums, nearly half
the song titles on Horseshoes and
Hand Grenades look like they're
about an ex-bandmate (read: Paul
Westerberg). Checkitout:"Popular
Creeps," "Before it Began,"
"Monkey Sees," "Ego Maniac,"
"Last Drop."
The Westerberg influence
doesn't stop there, the whiskey-
soaked.foiiom vocals and the catchy
songs populated with losers and
melancholy babies are straight out
of the Replacements school of hat-
knocks. Bitterness and anger fuel
much of Horseshoes and Hand
Grenades (as in "Close only counts
in..."), and to good effect. This
record is harder-hitting then the last
Replacements effort (of which Mars
was not a participant) and though
the level of song craft may not be up
to Westerberg-at-his-best standards,
there are enough good songs on
Mars' debut solo effort to keep the
listener coming back for more. Of
the fourteen tunes, only four do
nothing for me.
This is a real solo record, with
Mars playing mostof the instruments
(with only a little help from a couple
of Soul Asylum pals) and even
contributing three Heironymous
Bosch-influenced paintings to the
cover art. Chris Mars may never be
able to shirk "The Solo Debut from
Chris Mars (Founding Member of
the Replacements)" sticker that
adorns the jewelbox oi Horseshoes,
but there are worse things to be
known for (pity poor Peter Murphy,
forever to be known as a "founding
member of Bauhaus").
The highest recommendation
I can give this record: anyone who
ever found a drinking buddy in " Here
Comes a Regular" will enjoy having
a drink to the "Last Drop," the last
track on Horseshoes.
A strong recommendation

Didja miss me? I knew you did. Lemme fill you in. I was vacationing
in Edmonton around the time last issue was due. Since it was an all
local scene type thing I felt it would be nice to track down some gems
by the Poppy family—that ultimo schmaltz band fronted by the
winsome lass Susan Jacks—as a symbol of what the Vancouver scene
was before you were bom.
But could I find one stinkin' record in Edmonton? Nooooo!
Your intrepid vinylmonger spent two weeks hunting high and low for
something to write about and all I came up with was a copy of Pebbles
& Bambam Sing Songs of Christmas, and I have to save that one for
the Yule season. That town is bereft of vinyl, folks. It is a sobering
thought that you may not be able to get vinyl soon. So, rather than
disrupt the whole concept with my cheezball column, I didn't do one
last month, preferring to sit curled in a ball on my friend's floor,
gnashing my teeth.
Which leads me to this month's yap. A couple of weeks ago, a
member of much ballyhooed band Boss Hogg/Unsane managed to shuffle
off this mortal coil on a surplus of heroin. On, or near, the very same day
a member of equally ballyhooed band Seven year Bitch also decided to
avoid touring by o.ding on some jab as welL A bizarre turn of events, to
say the least. I mean, Christ, what a loser thing to do, getting hooked on
skag. It's the sort of loser thing your parents might have done in the '60' s.
It's kinda like playing nissian roulette with a semi-automatic pistol, or
voting for Ross Perot You're predestined to lose oul.

memory of the aforementioned people.
Five People Who Were More Talented Than The
Previously Mentioned Jokers, Yet Were Stupid Enough
To OJD. On Heroin, And Are Thusly Pushing Up Daisies
Instaed Of Making Music
1) Handsome Ned—This Torontonian had more talent in his
little finger than most of us will ever have. A country music DJ,
considered to have one of the biggest country record collections in the
dominion, who was on the verge of stardom when he checked out in
a most uncoun try like fashion in 1986. The Ballads of... rel ea s ed
posthumously, is a great LP of Ian Tyson meets Bakersfield
cowpunk. Buy it.
2) Darby Crash—I guess this cat was destined to go out
like this. The singer of LA hardcore band Geims (Belinda
Carlisle was also in them before her lobotomy), who couldn't
seem to be disciplined enough to even sing into the mic, was way
cooler than Sid ever was. Best quote: "Gimme a beer!"
3) Hillel Slovak—The
best guitarist the Chili peppers
ever had, Slovak cashed in his
chips before he could cash in his
fat paychecks. As a result the
RHCP are going through
guitarists faster than Spinal Tap
goes through drummers. Expiry
;date: 1988.
4) Tim Hardin—An
obscure artist whose influence
was far greater than his personal
success, Hardin's best music came
out in the late sixties on the ultra
cool Verve label. Hardin spent
most of the seventies drooling in
drug addled stupor, making
hurting records until he used his
works for the last time in 1980.
5) Tim Buckley—
Greetings From LA, released
greatness, with his rueful, introspective songwriting way ahead
of its time. I'm no folky, mind you, but "Starsailor" is my
favourite. This Mortal Coil's best song is a cover of his "Song
to the Siren." Damn fine singer, and dead way too soon. O.D. 'ed
in 1975.

really, aren't all his songs about heroin?
3) Velvet Underground — "Sister Ray" True chaos and terror
in VU style.
4) Patti Smith's song off of Horses that's really cool but I can't find my
copy right now, so you've got to trust me on this.
5) Clarence Williams & His Washboard Band —
"Jerry the Junker"
The oldest heroin song I've ever heard. A hoot.
Version I heard was from a compilation called
Reefer Songs on Jass Records.

2) Lou Reed—He would have been writing jingles or

for the spike (and Delmore Schwartz, I guess). His
insight and bitterness was infused with experiences
with heroin and its users.

You get the picture. I don't want to come off as a
preacher, I do a variety of drugs if I get spare cash,
which is pretty damn rare in these times. But dependency drugs, more often
than not, tend to wind up being crutches much like organized religions,
gangs, or Amway. Be responsible for crissakes.

Jerry A, you stand accused of
misrepresentation and guilt by
association. Counsel for the plaintiff,
call your witness to the stand.
Mr. Discorder Gig Reviewer,
tell us what you recall on the night
of June 27,1992 during the Poison
Idea Show?
Poison Idea record their m usic
in an aggressive, no nonsense style
that I find both entertaining as well
as emotionally provactive. As a
result,Ihoped theirlive show would
be consistent with this. Of course,
it is a rare occassion for a band to
reproduce a well-recorded sound
live, as well as successfully
incorporate the visual element.
That   night,   Poison   Idea
succeeded.
They went rippin'
through a set of hardcore tunes
that had people grittin' their
teeth and yellin' in rage. Some
were even good enough to
get a shot at the mic for a few
lines. Poison Idea were
chuggin' away like a Mack
truck. But then, something
inexplicable happened:
something avoided during
most of the show that
would have disturbed the
flow, something that
slowed down the pace ,
and lowered the j
intensity level. "
Time       was
taken out of their
you. The simplest reason being
that I contribute to Discorder and
I don't hate you or your opinions.
On one count of guilt by
association ("To everyone at
Discorder...") I state that one must
try to understand that Discorder is
a product of the efforts of a
collective. If you'd like to

Cure
Cranes
Seattle Center Coliseum
Seattle, WA
Tuesday, 30 June
Alison Shaw probably had a birthday
party that no one came to when she
was a small child and she probably
cried into her birthday cake. In any
case, Alison brings back all of those
childhood pains, broken nursery
rhymes, twisted dreams and those
fantastic nightmares that we all had.
Her frightened vocals bring all of
the pain back in full force, like a
storm that devastates and leaves only
skeletons behind.
Her brother, and dmmmer, Jim
Shaw probably had his favourite
stuffed toy yanked away from him
and thrown in the trash bin as a
small child. Then he was probably
banished to his room for crying.
This, to me, explains why Jim
pounds on the drums as if his sanity
depends on it.
The combination of Alison's
chilling vocals, Jim's furious
pounding, Matt and Marx's sonic
guitars brought tears gushing to my
eyes. I also kept remembering not
fitting in at school and the pain that
still lingers with my most recent
thoughts.
The Cranes opened the show
with six brutally beautiful songs
which awakened the audience
members from their personal
disparities. I was left with a
^bittersweet taste that could not
be quenched with just
and Breathing" and "Starblood"
display the Cranes' harder edged
industrial side. The band ended their
set with the infamous "Starblood"
and the audience went insane with a
collective enthusiam.
Unfortunately, the lights came up
after the song and the band
disappeared from the stage much in
the same way that a good nightmare
disappears when entering a waking
state.
This is the first time that I
have seen The Cure in concert but
the thought of being in a coliseum
full of people who suffer from acute
depression thrilled me to death. The
Cure played through a repertoire of
fifteen years of fun and not so fun
albums. I favoured the fun stuff
because the songs reminded me of
my dance club days. Highlights of
the evening were when the band
played: "Boys Don't Cry," "Just
Like Heaven," Why Can't I Be
You," "The Walk" and "Let's Go
To Bed."
Robert Smith, who abhores
adulthood, resembled an oversized
three year-old as he bounced around
like Peter Pan singing/howling the
fun stuff. That, however, ended soon
because Robert swings through
moods rather quickly. When he
decided to be serious and beckon
forth the pains of adulthood, he sent
many into the depths of depression:
"Cut" off of Wish made me think
about how stupid my life is, and I
am sure that I was not the only one
questioning the value of existing
because after I came out of my
thoughts and found myself slumped
on the floor, I looked around to see
others with that same morbid
expression on their faces.
^The night wore on

magazine that gave Poisin Idea
some unfavourable reviews.
"Discorder hates us," and "To
everyone at Discorder, we'd just
like to say fuck off," are a sample
of the statements made. Ignoring
the fact that I was there as a
Discorder representative, I still
thought it was unnecessary.
Irrelevant slagging bound only to
widen a bogus gap between Poison
Idea and Discorder, existing only
in the minds of Jerry A and those
sharing his sentiments.
On one count of

My Bloody Valentine
Buffalo Tom
Yo La Tengo
Moore Theatre
Seattle, Wa
Wednesday, 1 July
I was actually looking forward to
this show after hearing about My
Bloody Valentine from countless
journalists and musicians and after
hearing Loveless itself. However, I
ended up leaving this show early
with a pounding headache and loads
of disappointment.
Yo La Tengo opened the show
and, luckily for me, I missed half of
the band's set They are another one
of those bands that music journalists
rave about, yet I found them to be
annoying. Buffalo Tom, however,
plummeted from a worid of sweaty
bodies and broken guitar strings. I
didn't know the band's songs quite
like the throng of slam dancers
crashing the stage but I figured that
the lyrics must have been about
relationships ending up in the
dumpster and I can relate to that.
Buffalo Tom could pull off any lyrics
with the sheer brillance of these
three musicians. I was just left
wondering why they weren't the
headlining band and why they
haven't been hyped as much as My
Bloody Valentine orRide...you get
the point.
My Bloody Valentine came
on stage, after a long pause, in a
barrage of painful lights which ended
up dominating the band's set In
fact, painful is the key word
here: the lights were blinding,
the strobes nauseating and the
guitars brutally attacked my
eardrums and senses that were
still intact! I did recognize a
few songs off of Loveless and I
was even relieved for a brief
moment when I thought, finally
I am going to enjoy this show.
But when BillindaButcherbegan
singing.I.and 1/3 ofthe audience,
couldn't hear the vocals at all
and figured that the pain in our
heads was pointless and left the
it be getting old because I
can't understand why MBV had to
crank their guitars so loud that you
couldn't hear the drums, bass or the
vocals. If MBV would tone down the
lights, turn down the guitars enough to
hear anything but white noise, I'd be
writing about how much I loved the
band instead of how the show really
Patty-Lynne Herlevi
Sarah McLachlan
Lava Hay
Orpheum
Friday, 3 July
Something happened at the
Orpheum July 3 that I must say I felt
honoured and privileged to be a part
of. What I witnessed was officially
the nicest concert in the history of
modemmusic. Not thebest, loudest,
most exciting, most entertaining, or
longest. ..but the nicest. It would have
been enough to cause me to
reexperience the food thatwas trying
to exit my stomach the same way it
got in... if only it hadn't have been
so infernally enjoyable.
The evening began with the
local female duo Lava Hay
strumming and singing their feelgood Indigo Girls-meets-Michelle
Shocked repertoire. The audience
seemed to be happily swaying to
and fro the whole time, even if the
Lavette's vocals sounded more than
a little shaky. However, their
harmonies basically worked and, if
you didn'l mind the lack of variety
of sound and songwriting, you were
likely one ofthe ones s wayin' to and
fro.
By the time Sarah took the
stage I, for one, was ready for a good
voice, imaginative songwriting and
musical arrangement, and a little
('scuze the cliche) soul,
goddaammit! She didn't disappoint.
Kicking her set off with a
candlelight rendition of "Vox,"
McLachlan had the audience right
with her from the first note. As she
moved through her catalogue of
modest hits such as "Steaming,"
"Drawn to the Rythm," "Into the
Fire," and The Path of Thorns" the
crowd seemed to become
increasingly gleeful and Sarah
increasingly overwhelmed by their
response. I was sure everyone in the
building was going to have some
obscene love-in. It almost happened
too. When McLachlan came out for
her first of three (or was it four)
encores the stage was rushed in a
gesture of adulation that had
McLachlan near tears....
I could go on but I think you
get the basic idea without hearing
any more graphic details. Anyhow,
if your idea of a good concert is
noise, distortion, persperation and
mayhem, then never see McLachlan
or Lava Hay. But if you enjoy happy
times, excellent music, and Sarah
poking fun at Madonna by doing a
quick cover of "Vogue," all rolled
up into one two and a half hour
Kodak Moment, then you missed a

Skinny Puppy
Moore Theatre, Seattle
Sunday, 5 July
This concert turned into the Skinny
Puppy From Hell show. First, why
would Skinny Puppy play in the
Seattle equivalent to the Orpheum
and why was there enough security
to guard Fort Knox? Why did I get
the despicable balcony seats and
why is Perry Farrell on the cover
of Spin yet again?!
This was my ninth Skinny
Puppy show and there was no way I
was sitting in balcony seats. So your
hapless Puppy devotee desparatcly
tried to scam her way into the coveted
floor area. I hung out in the foyer
looking for a way to dart in but no
luck, everybody's ticket was being
checked. So after much stomping
up and down of stairs and cursing
security, I retreated to the women's
washroom to fume. I started telling
everybody my tale of woe and a
Goth woman actually TRADED
tickets—her floor seat for my
balcony— with me!?
I eluded the heavy security—
obviously, somebody got Guns 'n'
26 ES^gsjsssj^n Roses and
Skinny Puppy mixed
up—to hop into the miniscule pit in
front of the stage and weasled my
way to where I wanted to be.
Maybe I'm getting old but the
gore stuff doesn't do much for me
anymore. However, Ogre's
interaction with the large screen at
the rear of the stage was very
evocative. Most of the images were
in black and white and from the
"Killing Game" video (you know,
the one where Ogre gets attacked,
metaphorically and physically, by
demons). There was also some
Virtual Reality stuff, where Ogre
wore a VR helmet and colour footage
appeared: one, a head and shoulder
shot with clouds in the background
and, of course, the boffo part where
a tentacle rips Ogre's face—okay,
maybe some of the gore was fun.
Something that took up a lot of
space and wasn't utilized very
effectively was the maxpole
dripping with tortured faces and doll
The theme ofthe evening was
paranioa and self-persecution and
Ogre did manage to bring this
through a couple of times.
Particularly when he started
screaming at the audience, "Who
the fuck are you! What do you want!"
and when he faced his image on the
screen and did an obsessive dance
with himself in time to the explosive
"Anger." The "Guilt Suit," a rubber
body suit with syringes sticking out
of it, also illustrated the theme quite
As in the "Too Dark Park"
tour, the highlight was the encore
with Ogre just being himself,
smoking a cigarette and staring out
into the audience. Ogre meandered
off the stage and a backlight image
of him flickered on the screen,
complete with anti -drug mes sages—
"Your gift is misused." Words to
live by ...Ogre should know.
Puppy seemed  concerned
bout
topping this tour (how
can they do something bigger and
better?). It seems to me that
streamlining may be the way to go;
bring the emotional aspects of the
show through in more direct ways. I
guess well have to wait and see
what happens.

Tuesday, 14 July
It is time to rid our city of that
foulest of beasts, the CFOX Fox.
Little did I realize that tonight the
Fox was added to the bill to delight
and thrill the audience. In between
groping innocent females and
performing the idiotic "Fox-Trot"
this beast was just a plain menace at
the show. It is truly time
arising, a Holy Jihad, to sanctify our
abodes and permit our children to
live peacefully.
Mammoth Recording artists
Antenna began the show with a
nondescript, albeit polite, gui tarrock
set. At moments their traditional j
lyrics and arrangement hit upon j
enough pop to make their tunes J
interesting. However, little 1
enthusiasm emanated from thei
crowd or the band. All in all, a good I
local act would have been much f
more satisfying to the palate than I
these Southerners.
Next up was the Vancouver J
debut of Cracker, a band fronted j
by David Lowry, the former j
vocalist and guitarist forCamper J
Van Beethoven. What made ,
Camper Van Beethoven
incredible band was its blend
ofecleclicmusical sounds and
rhythms using basic rock
instruments, although with
the addition of a violinist,
combined with a whimsical
post-hippie attitude and
lyrics. Although former
Camper lead David Lowry
has attempted to maintain
the same absurdist and
purposefully cliche laden
lyrics with his new band the
end result seems contrived
compared to the spontaneity
of everything Camper.
I liked many songs on their
debut  self-titled release,
including their smash hit "fit
Smells Like] Teen Angst (What
the   World   Needs   Now),
however, the band's new songs
were   alarmingly  way  too
country, yikes!!! Even with the
addition of their new twangy
songs the    band struggled to
complete their overlong hour seL
In fact, audience members had to
yell out song titles in order for the
band to round out their allotted
The only highlight to the
show was the band's encore. The
I first song was, "Don't Fuck Me
Up (With Peace and Love)," a good
I song but one which they had
already performed that night. Then,
with a look of desperation in his
eyes, Lowry called upon the
Cracker roadie to come up on stage
and sing a song. Obligingly, the
roadie grabbed the microphone and
belted out a song called "Why Do
I Keep Fucking Up," the lyrics for
which he read from the backside
of a beer coaster. When your roadie
gets the biggest applause of the
night you know it's time foryou to
quit or gain a new band member.

The Town Pump
Friday,17July
How the hell do you r
Milkmen concert? Think about it,
how do you explain a band like the
Milkmen to people who are clued-
out enough to not know who they
are? On the other hand,
a Dead
familiar with HP Hovercraft,
Butterfly Fairweather, Dean Clean,
Dave Blood and their soul-searching
musical repertoire including
"Bitchin' Camaro," "Punk Rock
Girl," "Smokin' Banana Peels,"
"Ringo Buys a Rifle," "Methodist
Colouring Book" and "Life is Shit,"
what can be said about the Milkmen
that you don't already know?
The evening started something
like this: Billy Goat took the stage to
kick things off (when they finally
arrived, that is. Tho Milkmen were
joking that they were gonna have to
open for themselves 'cause nobody
seemed to know where Billy Goat
was or if they were planning on
showing up). Anyway, when they
got down to playing music, Billy
Goat was pretty good. Lots of
energy, cool songs and good
musicians. The go-go dancer I
probably could have done without,
although her high intensity shaking
and grinding, while throwing
various bags of food products
indiscrimin-antly into the crowd,
and wearing of bizarre masks
definitely made for a unique show.
As forthe Dead Milkmen, they
were, well, the Dead Milkmen. I
realize that may sound a bit
redundant but il's the only accurate
way to describe them. They were
loud, obnoxious, moderately
musical and extremely amusing.
They seemed to be ha vin' quite the
blast on stage, as was the crowd
who thrashed around incessantly
from note one of the Milkmen's set.
In the end, we'd seen a cool, if
odd, opening aa, slammed around a
lot, and heard a lot of really fucked-
up music. But the bottom line was
we'd gotten exactly what we'd paid
to see: the Dead Milkmen. And that
was that. You know what, Stuart? I
like you. You're not like the other
people here in this trailer park.

NEW FRQM ZULU.
?«r£uiA« -tree
New on Zulu Records, Dust is the first full-length release from the 1991 Shindig finalists
and Coast 1040 listeners' favorite indie band, Perfume Tree.
Jane's clear, glass-like voice and Pete's ambient-noise guitar are propelled by Adam's
throbbing dub bass and pinned by heavy sample/drum machine beats.
Dust contains ten songs, including Dreaming, Nightmare Jacket, and Death in Primetime.

P.j. Harvey ® Dry
Previously only available as an expensive, hard-to-
find UK import. P.j. Harvey's excellent debut album
has finally hit North American shores. An excellent
songwriter and musician with a primo backup
band. P.j. is perhaps the strongest and most
articulate female voice to come out of the UK since
Sinead O'Connor. Although possessing her own
unique musical style, comparisons to Throwing
Muses' Kirsten Hirsh or Patti Smith would not be
out of line.
Sonic Youth •  Dirty
Since their inception in the early 1980s. Sonic
Youth has represented all that is truly adventurous
in rock music. Spurning conventional rock song
structures and standard guitar tunings, they have
created a genre all their own. Since signing to a
major label, their influence has grown even more,
spurring on the mainstream successes of almost
every other american independent band, whether
it be Dinosaur. Jr.. Helmet, or Nirvana.
(Various Artists) • Afternoon Delight (SubPop Love Songs)
No matter what you say about SubPop Records, they certainly have a knack for
putting together a compilation. Last year's "The Grunge Years" practically had
laser holes burnt into it from the time it spent on our CD player. "Afternoon
Delight" features tracks from Afghan Whigs. Smashing Pumpkins. Unrest. Come.
Sebodah. and numerous others — classic songs from rare singles and unreleased material. This is the perfect collection for picnics in the country or drinking
root beer on the porch. You call it "love rock"? We call it damn fine listening!
The Vaselines ® The Way ofthe Vaselines
In the annals of "new wave", the Vaselines would, by all accounts, be considered
an obscurity. Coming from the Glasgow scene in the mid-1980s with the likes of
the pastels, they were overlooked in all of the excitement stirred up by the Jesus
and Mary Chain. Over the years their cult has grown to include a substantial
number of fans, including Nirvana who loved the songs enough to perform three
of them, live and and on record. This compilation includes all of these and a
baker's dozen other tracks.
