Dear Discorder,
I know we've had our differences in the past but, now that
I'm moving out of Vancouver, I
admit I will miss reading yer
mag every month. Yes, it's true!
I'm leaving. Fret not, as I will be
continuing my weekly column in
Terminal City. I will also be
operating my new record label
(tentatively named Schtufff...), a
'zine of my own, a mailorder/
distro, and lots of other fun shit.
Anyone interested can write me
at the below address. Anyway,
enclosed is $15 for a one year
subscription. Hi to Kim, Grant
and Mofo, and good luck as new
editor, Dylan.

Dear Discorder,
It's me again. Yes one of those
Superconductor people. I ra
thank you for printing my letter.
I got the e:
wanted. So the joke is
By the way, I am not in the
aforementioned rock group. I
coined tlie term because it one

I do not read Sassey (sic), I
simply used that as a vehicle.
My spelling, well, I wasn't
paying too much attention. I was
not well rested and had other
things on my mind.
Vic Vaguely
Well, our humble rag has never
blinded anyone s spelling abilities
before. What an honour. As for
parrying your silly tirades in any
way, I think the best we can do is
to keep printing your letters. See
you next month and good luck
with sanity.
Dear Discorder,
it to win!! My painful
experience: The other day I took
e swig of a Coke/
Cream Soda Slurpee™ and
I got a brain
beyond description!
Jared
Ooh, brain freeze, ooh, ooh, I
hate it! Only thing more painful
is an unanesthesed labotomy, and
we should know. Can you believe
that 7-Eleven™ used the
Slurpee™ brain freeze as a
selling point?! Modem
marketing has indeed taken on
malevolent proportions. We're
with you, man.
Fair readers, instead of spending
your hard earned dollars on
corporate America diguised as
icy beverages, why not see some
slick bands and support a good
cause? Two opportunities to do
just that are coming up this
month.
First, on Aug. 6th, is Rock
Against Prisons. Sponsored by
the Prison Justice Day Committee, the Noon-7pm event features
speakers, food, book and info
tables, a raffle AND Tickle
Trunk, Culture Hype Crew,
Daughters of the Wind, Jeet
Kei, Sawagi Taiko, Insult to
Injury, Murder Museum, Lash
BAck, and the Dunderheads.
Everything goes down at
Grandview Park (12x00 block of
Commercial Dr.) and its FREE!
The very next day, Aug 7th,
another scrumptuous event is on
at the Jericho Arts Centre. It's a
benefit for the Pink Ink Theatre
Company and for the low price
of$8/$7, you can enjoy the music
of Two Trains and the Lonesome
Cowboys, a beer garden,
baseball, sketch comedy, and
storytelling. For $15, you '11 also
get a salmon barbeque and a
starlit dance. The action starts at
3pm and the info-line is 872-
1861.

The Nowhere Garden - 7"
Sort of garage-pop from the 60's
or something hke that. Almost
has a Doors sound; that is if you
listen to the Doors on 45 r.p.m.
Oops, pardon me, side B sounds
like a Screaming Trees ballad.
The vocals on both sides are void
of comparisons -1 don't know
what the vocals remind me of,
Weird Al Yankovich? (Flaming
Cow's Head Records 1319
Indian St., Bellingham, WA

Meet Daisy -
Schizophonicacousticcassette
I really liked this tape. As
suggested in the title, it's an
acoustic recording of four songs
plus a Gordon Lightfoot
Sometimes it faded in the
background and then caught me
with a catchy melody. Great
listen to while
reading
fanzines. I
know they
play live
around the
city -1 think I
Shindig in the
past, but I
can't really
remember. I
think I liked
them though. 4-track recording
enthusiasts might also find a
place in their heart for M.D. - not
just 'cause it's recorded on 4-
track (I think it is, it sounds like
it is) but because it's good. (Meet
Daisy 747B 16th Ave.,
Vancouver, B.C. V5T 2V5)
Fracas - Grisly Lobby Display
CD
I don't get it, is it the water? A
Victoria band who sounds like...
you guessed it, Nomeansno. John
Wright (from N.M.N.) is credited
as the Emergency Mix-Doctor, so
maybe that has something to do
with it. If you like N.M.N, you'll
love this 'cause it's still quite
fresh. The only other comparison
would be to Victim's Family
which just makes it sound like I
stutter. Check it out. (Fracas
1812 Jade Place, Victoria, B.C.
V8P 3E4 Canada)
Sineater - Pencil Neck 7"
Two new songs recorded in San
Diego blasting out with a lot
more punch than their last debut
7". A lot of pop that will
probably attract the Bad
Religion listener but with more
of an edge that maybe Pegboy
fans will like. Sineater just came
back from a U.S. tour with
Horace Pinker; both bands are
now putting stuff out on Justice
Records in Texas. Write Sineater
at 471 Pemberton Terrace,
Kamloops, B.C. V2C 1T6
Canada.
buy a record by a band you like
and you're so anxious to hear it
and see what's inside - the
packaging, the lyrics and
whatever else that might be
thrown in - and you get home,
open it, and find nothing inside:
no lyric sheet, no nothing. You
play the disc and the recording
sounds like a rush-job, there's
only one song on each side and
you feel ripped-off or at least let
down. Well, not with this record.
So much time went into this
record, so much personality
oozes out of the packaging, that
I just have to smile, just hke
when you receive a swell letter
from a long-lost friend in the
mail. Musically you have four
punk/hardcore songs from Insult
To Injury - kind of touching
bases with everything: slow,
fast, melodic, noise - yup, they
play the field. M.P.A. are more of
a hardcore/fussioncore(?)
ensemble blasting out 8, count
'em 8, songs that are sometimes
short and to the point and
sometimes silly. Support some
local bands. (OK., M.P.A. are
from Victoria, not Vancouver, but
anyways...) It's only about $3 in
stores. (PO Box 21533, 1850

10 THINGS (Jesus Wants You To
Know) #666 (8 1/2" x 11" 28 pgs.
$2 ppd.)
Wow, I really like this 'zine.
Good layouts, easy to read, lots of
info and most of all, I actually
agree with most of the music
reviews. Interviews with Holden
Mo, The Sinister Six, Cherubs,
Zeke, North American Bison, 7
Year Bitch, and The New Bomb
Turks as well as 'zine reviews and
what not Lots of Seattle stuff, but
hey, that's where it's from.
Vancouver should have something
- like this. (#17 -1407 NE 45th St.,
Seattle, WA 98105)
EMIT #3 (8 1/2" x 11" 16 pgs.
$2.00 (ppd.?))
I find this quite a peculiar 'zine -
in the past I've found it to piss me
off. But I digress...The layout,
well, it reads like a newspaper:
bold headlines, catchy subtides
and then regular type. I know, I
know, what's the big deal?
(Maybe I just hke bitching -
yup, I think that's it. Shut-up
and let me continue.) Sure, I
can read it easily enough, and
hell, the catchy headlines
grabbed my attention. That's
great, the National Enquirer
does a good job of it too. It's
just that having a computer
doesn't mean you have to play
by the rules. Shit, look at
Ray gun -1 can't even read that
thing, I just look at the
pictures. Creative layouts make
it fun for anal people, like myself,
to read a publication. Anyways,
interviews with the Smugglers,
Huevos Rancheros, and Therapy,
plus reviews and the such. I liked
the local 'zine directory. (PO
BOX 2499, Vancouver, B.C. V6B
3W7 Canada)
VAGUE #2 (7" X 8 1/2" 12 pgs.
Free.)
Really creative layout here, all
handwritten with pretty graphics
all around - almost as flowery as
your parents garden. So pretty.
Short but free; dabble here, dabble
there, local news that's kinda
dated now, opinions, interviews
with Staked Plain. I wish it came
out more often; sadly it's a once
in a blue moon hobby type 'zine,
but there's not enough of them
type 'o 'zines anyways. (969 East
10th Ave., Vancouver, B.C. V5T
2B3 Canada)
you count the pages yourself.)
Trish Kelly has probably put out
or helped with more 'zines than
anyone else in Vancouver. Sure,
they may be a little itty-bitty in
size but boy do they pack a
punch. I think some of this 'zine
has sneaked into her spoken word
performances (which you should
check out and see). My favourite
quote:  "I don't speak quietly so
that you may hear yourself
better." (No address - and I
thought she remembered
everything.)
FOREVER <k A DAY#10 (4 1/4
" x 7 " 16 pgs. - free in person or
send stamps.)
'Zine of the month, or should I
say 'zine of the column 'cause I
got it quite a while ago and just
got around to reading it now.
Photos and frantic scribblings
with waves of pure emotion - got
that? It is possible to put emotion
into your work (well... maybe)
and play. Take note, send a buck
or something for a couple of
issues. Feel the words go through
you and drive it. Yeah. (PO BOX
95383, Seattle, WA 98145 USA)
ROARING FORK DIGEST If 1
and #2 (5 1/2" X 4 1/4 " 12 pgs.
- each free, or send some $ or
stamps.)
It's rather interesting how similar
yet different each issue of R.F.D.
is from any other. Issue #1 hit
home with me: brief prose over
photos that speak a million words
- very inspiring. My favourite is a
photo of two people in the rain,
each wilh an umbrella and "we
feel the need to arm ourselves
against nature" written over the
top. Issue #2 is much more long
winded than #1 - and no photos.
The writing is quite off-the-wall
so maybe I just got lost. I really
think the photos in #1 add
character. #1 is a close second for
'zine of the month. (Glenn E.
Kuhn - R.R. #3, Prince Albert,
Saskatchewan S6V 5R1 Canada)
kinda like...dedicated to her, but
not completely 'cause there's lots
of stuff on rap. Go figure - Drew
& rap, hand in hand. Oh yeah,
punk too. Know what? I like it.
Yup, I hke it a lot. Stuff not
allowed in Drew 'zine - G.G.
Allin, E.T., Alf, Peanut Butter
Wolf and M.C. Hammer (not
even to dis). (#18 - 501 Hayes,
San Francisco, CA 94102 USA)
DREW til (7" X 81/2" 32 pgs $2)
Drew as in Drew Barrymore, that
childstar (remember that girl in
E.T.) turned super-model (see
that giant jean ad at the bus
shelter?). That's right, a 'zine
PERSONAL
O.K. I'm making some space to
warn people about a parasite who
has come to live in our fine city.
This is not a comment made in
haste, this is information I have
gathered in the past four years
and the reason I'm printing it is
because this person has already
taking advantage of several
people (that I'm aware of) in
Vancouver, on top of his
countless other 'victims' across
the country. The name he goes by
is Dave - usually David Gilchrist,
but also David Gow, Dave
Banthaven, and I'm sure a slew
of other aliases. He formulates
'innocent ' stories that are such
petty lies that you don't question
them, and then builds upon them
to gain your trust. His main goal
is to get you to give him money
for records
(which he doesn't
even have) or to
just lend him
money; he might
even get you to
trust him enough
to 'pay you back'
for those longdistance phone
calls he made. He
claims to be from
Red Deer,
Alberta but will
throw in a slew
of travelling
stories. He seems
to like saying that
he used to live in
San Diego. He's
claimed to have
played in bands
like Heroin and
Superconductor
(both untrue)
when it's
believed that he doesn't even
know how to play any instruments. He's involved with
Flashbomb fanzine, which has
also been his way of making
contacts and advertising for his
phoney mail-order which claims
to sell records (like Ebulition,
Vermiform, Final Notice, etc.)
for as little as $2 ppd. It all
sounds so appealing and too good
to be true - and it is. 7"'s cost
$1.10 for postage in the mail and
they don't cost $0.90 to produce,
so it's impossible to offer those
prices. It's a scam, watch out.
He's recently been calling his
mailorder Spectrasonic Distro
Machine and offers to
'bring those records by
later' after you have paid
him. Don't trust him.
He's used my name (as
well as many others) for
some kind of credibility,
and I have never met him.
Thru the mail he asks for
cash (which is very
common in the punk
scene) or for blank
money-orders (very
suspicious). Four years
ago he contacted me thru
Maximumrocknroll and
offered to trade some
record, and guess what, I
sent him mine but he
never sent his. He moved
but gave me his new number;
when I finally called him on the
scam he refused to answer the
phone. I phoned bis 'parents'
line and they informed me that
they had nothing to do with him
anymore and had no idea where
he was. A year and a half later he
ripped-off two of my friends in
Calgary (one for $170) and then
he moved to Ontario where he
his phoney
cam and ripped-off
i friends (that I know
w he's moved here,
igh, a friend of mine
talking to me
going to
seemed to st
mailorder sc
another two
of). And n.
Oddly eno
herein Va
about this guy who w
sell him some records that I
might also be interested in. Turns
out David slipped and used the
same alias twice - David
Gilchrist - and now I know he's
here and what he's up to. So if
you meet some guy with Pushead
tattoos and a hand-full off petty
lies, be suspicious. It sucks that
assholes like this can destroy the
trust diat the 'scene' is built on so
easily. Don't believe his
untraceable name-dropping, don't
believe his lies. You've been
warned. Take heed.

Clarke and Kearney had to
learn from Beddoes was the
ability to conceive and create
a song without lyrics, to
translate spoken words into
aural statements. "There's no
language barriers with the
lyrics," states Beddoes, "so
instrumental rock is really
universal. I get ideas based
perhaps on a title or a lyric
line that I get for it. What I
try to do is convey through
the music itself. The melody

music, similar to Beddoes' : "I

Wt;re recorded in, as Beddoes put
it, "full living analog sound"
inside the bedroom of his house
(which is credited on the sleeve
as Bedclothes Studios), a move
that was prompted by financial
necessity and Beddoes' familiarity with recording equipment
rather than by any desire to
make a lunch-box-as-purse type
of fashion statement. "We could
have gone into a bigger studio
and come out with something
that wouldn't have sounded a
hell of a lot different from what
we did", states Clarke.
Using a second generation
four-track (a 1985 Audio
Technica RMX 64), Beddoes was
able to create a sound resembling that of the band's live
performance. "I wanted a live
sound," he says. "There are no
real tricks, it's all really
depended on your ability."
This claim notwithstanding,
Beddoes did use some
ingenious methods to stretch
the channels with great clarity
through techniques he learned
from longtime k>cal producers
Doug Gyseman (of early 70"*

and Robin Spuigeon (Tha.

REBELLIOUS PUNK ROCK
APPEALS TO THE DISENCHANTED YOUTH OF
SUBURBAN AMERICA!!!
THE OFFSPRING ARE
NOW PREPARING THEIR
OWN FULL SCALE
ASSAULT ON THE NATION
- DON'T LET THIS YEAR'S
TOUR PASS YOU BY!
You gotta love band
bios...anyways, PR proclamations aside, Offspring is a great
band from Orange County,
California featuring Dexter
(Brian) Holland on vocals,
Noodles on guitar, Greg K. on
bass and Ron Welty on drums.
Petra and Gemma, Discorder's
Queens of Q&A, interrogated
the band when they wandered
into town recently; the low
down follows...
Discorder: Are you all from
Orange County?
Greg: Yes. It's a really cushy
place to grow up - [a] real kind
onservative suburb. All the
|   kids that grow up there get
really bored and that's why
they start punk rock bands and
write about all that nasty stuff
|  that goes on!
Any cool Orange County
bands to look out for?
Greg: (thinking) The Voodoo
Glow Skulls, kind of a ska band
from Riverside, are pretty good.
When did Offspring start?
Greg: Brian and I started in 19S4
and Ron came in around '85. It's
been the same line up since '86.
It started off just more as a
hobby sort of thing. It got
serious around '86, '87.
What's the story behind Ron
joining the band?
Brian: We had this drummer that
was the worst fucking drummer -
he was - but he was a friend. He
couldn't play the song on the
single ("111 Be Waiting"), so I
had to play the drums on it! He
was in pre-med so he didn't
really want to spend a lot of time
going out of town. Eventually
we got rid of him 'cuz Ron
wanted to be in the band and
Ron was a lot better.
Ron: I kept begging him and
begging him, giving [the band]
money...
Brian: And he was only sixteen
then! When we wanted to take
him on the road his mom made
us sign a permission slip to take
care of him! If he dies it's on my
Smash is your second release
on Epitaph: How's the label
working out for you?
Greg: They're great. They do a
lot of promotion and stuff. We're
really happy with them.
What's Offspring's discogra-
phy before Smash and the
previous Epitaph release,
Ignition?
Greg: We put out our own single
in '87 and then we did an album
with Nemesis on Cargo Records
in '89 (called The Offspring).
Cargo lost the rights to The
Offspring, so we're just sitting
on it. We only pressed a
thousand copies of "I'll Be
Waiting" and it took two years to
get rid of that - we couldn't give
'em away! Both of the songs on
the single are also on the first
Thorn Wilson has produced all
three Offspring albums - he
obviously gets the sound you
strive for.
Brian: We found Thorn before
the Cargo record. He's helped us
a lot just getting things together
in the studio and he helps to
make it sound good. He's always
been so much help to us so
we've always wanted to use him
for the next record. It's almost
like [he's] another person in the
band, as far as the studio goes
Are you on tour right now?
Brian: We're doing weekends
this month! It was so I could
still go to school but it was too
much, so I took a leave of
absence anyways. None of us
have jobs right now; fortunately,
Epitaph helps us out a lot.
Do you have a predominantly
all-ages following?
Brian: We do ninety-five per
cent all-ages shows. We were
originally trying to find an all-
ages place for tonight, but [we]
couldn't find one that fit within
our schedule. Then we found out
that SNFU (also on Epitaph)
were also playing the same night
that we wanted to play, so rather
than compete against each other
we decided to combine the
shows. But I'm really sorry that
all those kids couldn't get in.
Are any of you involved in any
side projects or do any of you
have your own label?
Brian: Greg and I are trying to
start something up. We're going
to put out one of our friend's
bands - Guttermouth. They used
to be on Dr. Strange Records,
but I don't think anyone is
familiar with that label.
What's up next for Offspring?
Brian: We plan to come back as
soon as we can. Most of the
summer is already booked for us,
although it doesn't include
Vancouver - hopefully in October
when we go back out [on tour]!

!iyjl!li!Jit^^^ One of the many highlights of the recently held Vancouver International Jazz Festival was The Mighty Clouds of Joy, a pioneering gospel
quartet who mix contemporary R&B with traditional African-American gospel music. Lead by Joe Ligon, one of the finest singers in
the world, The Mighty Clouds Of Joy also features three other exceptional vocalists: Wilbert William, Richard Wallace, and Michael
McCowan. The group played an inspiring and energetic concert to a sold-out Commodore audience, after which I caught up to Joe Ligon
to talk about some of the things that have gone down on the Gospel Highway.
Discorder: First oral), I'd like to
thank you for that inspiring program.
Joe Ligon: Thank you. Thank you
very much. We're so happy to be
here,
we're having a good time and the
people in Canada are receiving us
so great and we thank them for the
way they received us tonight and
the last two nights, and we've got
four more nights to go, so it's
just great.
Mighty Clouds of Joy performs
everywhere and to every
type of audience: is it important
for you to take gospel
outside of the church environment and bring it to the people?
Yes it is, because a lot of people
don 'tgotochurch.We take gospel
everywhere, you know, we'll go
to nightclubs, ballrooms, it doesn't
matter. We be-
when Jesus walked down here
he went home to be with his father, he didn't pick certain places
to go. He went where he was
needed. So we feel that we've got
song for everybody and we take it
wherever we think we can spread
our messageand that's what we've
always done and that's what we
always will do.
In the early days, you used to
tour a bit with Rev.
Julius Cheeks ( of the Sensational Nightingales ), what are
some of the memories that you
can recall from those days?
When you mention him you notice the smile on my face. Rev.
Cheeks was my idol, my mentor. I
used to sit and watch him as
a young boy, before I made my
first record thirty-four years ago,
and I never saw a man who
could captivate an audience
g     could. He could go on stage
and just stand and look and
words and it would get so
quiet. People would just listen
to what he had to say. He gets on
stage and says the same thing that
some other singer had said,
but he said it in a way
where you
%0f*~ knew it was his way.
I've idolized him,
I've met him, I
had a chance to sing
with himon stage and
in the studio and 1
say that he taught me
a lot. A lot of things
I'm doing today, he
was  my teacher.  I
k     loved the man dearly
I      and there'll never be
another Rev. Julius
§§    Cheeks.
Wen, other people
like Ira Tucker and
the Dixie
Hummingbirds, do
they influence you?
Sure, the Dixie Hummingbirds are
pioneers of gospel music. Ira
Tucker - [who] I also heard as a
young kid and he's still singing today - still has all of that tremendous
voice that he had many years ago.
I was just informed today that [the
Dixie Hummingbirds] lost another
member, I just found out today. One
of their members recently passed. I
think he was their old tenor - high
tenor; 1 bell eve his name was Beachy
Thompson. I just heard from California - one of my members called
home to his mother and she said,
'we lost another one of the Dixie
Hummingbirds' - we lost James
Walker, one of the lead singers recently, who was one of my best
friends. All the guys are my friends
and I hear just recently that we just
lost another member. But those guys
was the pioneers, they travelled
sixty-five years and life has treated
them well, but yes, Ira Tucker was
also one of the people that I studied
[and] listened to. But nobody can
quite sing like Ira Tucker.
Well, they're all singing for the
Lord in heaven now.
That's right, they're going to a better place. I'm sending
my prayers for their families but
there are three of them still going
strong. I saw them recently, oh yeah.
They're still going
and I hope they will continue to go
on and on because they inspired
groups [like] the Mighty Clouds of
Joy to be out here like we are today.
How did you get to know Aretha
Franklin? You recorded an album with her.
I sure did. Aretha is one of my best
friends. I have to say that because
her father was my godfather, Rev.
C.L. Franklin.
Really?!
Oh Yes. He opened doors for the
Mighty Clouds of Joy in many
ways: he took us on our first major
tour, Rev. C.L. Franklin. I got a
chance to meet Aretha as a young
girl and a few years ago she called
me. She calls me Ligon. She says,
"Ligon? I need you to come to De
troit to my father' s church. We need
to make a record together." And
youtalkin' 'bout a tremendous time.
I had a beautiful time. We recorded
one of my songs which the album
won a Grammy for, "I've Been In
The Storm Too Long," a song that
we did here tonight We recorded
many songs together: "Packing Up
Getting Ready To Go," old Clara
Ward, a Star of Faith song. We're
still friends - whenever I see her she
hugs me. I saw her at the Grammies
two years ago; we won a Grammy
for "Pray For Me," my third
Grammy I believe it was. And ah,
that's how I met her, when her
father took us on tour many years
ago.
Groups like yourself who once
travelled on the gospel highway,
you guys were met with some difficulties such as, poverty,and racism. What keeps you going all
these years to stick with gospel
Well, number one, we love the Lord.
We went through the era when Dr.
King was out there. We went to
hotels where we couldn't
stay, because we were black. But
we knew that it was going
to get better [and] now we stay at
the same hotels and we have no
problem. Anything worthwhile is
worth working for, and we knew
the song that we sing, "There's A
Bright Side Somewhere." We knew,
even in the '60s when we couldn't
even sit in the restaurants [and] we
couldn't stay in certain hotels, we
knew that it wouldn't always
be that way and we thank God, who
sent us Dr. King, who went up,
got beat up, who got dogs turned
loose on him, waterhoses loose on
him - but he stayed in the race until
someone assassinated him.
But he opened doors for his people.
We went through hard times -
we didn't have very much money, I
had an old raggedy car and all this,
but we kept believing that God was
able and that God would make our
way and today we travel in our own
bus and we stay
where we want to stay and God has
blessed us with homes and
families and God is just good. And
I say that to you and to the
people here tonight in the club.
God is a good God, and we trust
him and we're gonna sing on until
we can't sing any more.
Alright! You received many
Grammies and many other
recognitions. But for you, personally, what is the greatest re-
for singing gospel?
My greatest reward was ah, I was
at a program in Rochester,
New York and a man came up to
mewhosaid, "I wasn't a Christian
at one time." He said, "I was going
to kill all of my children and
kill myself." He said, "I was at the
end of the road for me, I was
going to commit suicide." And he
said, "Through your singing
ministry and your records, I'm
saved, born again Christian." That
was better than the Grammies, better than the Stella, better than
the Dove and better than the Tony
award, to hear a man say I'm
living today because of the Mighty
Clouds of Joy singing. There
will never be nothing in my life no
greater than to know that I
inspired somebody to keep on living.
What a testimony! Well, you tend
to mix up musical
style quite a bit: Do you have a
particular style that is your fa-
Well, yes. My favourite is like one
of the songs I just sang
tonight. I recorded it once [and]
I'm gonna redo it, [it's] called
"Nearer My God To Thee," an old
Soul
Stirrers/Sam Cooke song. [It's] an
old song that even my grandparents sang before there was a Sam
Cooke and the Soul Stirrers. Songs
like that are my favourite songs.
But, you know, everything
changes:
cars change, clothes change, people change. Mighty Clouds of Joy
has stayed around for thirty-four
years because we were able to
change with the trend. We change
- we came with a different code
of dress, different music, different style of singing. We was one
of the first groups to do contemporary gospel, way before they
had
a name for it. There were no
Take Six, there were no Winans,
there
was no Commissions, there was
no Hawkins Family singing
when we started recording contemporary gospel; we were one
of the first
groups to do it and we changed
because we saw the change coming. People used to get angry
sang "The Ride To The Mighty
High" now they request [the
song], saying, do
"The Ride To The Mighty High,"
do "Time," do "Love In The
World."
So what has kept us afloat [is
that] we have been able to look
ahead of us
and see the change in music,
gospel music, and that's what
has kept
us around. We're playing to an
audience now that we never
dreamed
that we would be playing to. We
crossed over into the white
audience and to all types of gospel singing; folk are coming from
everywhere to hear The Might
Clouds, and we give God all of
the
glory and the praises.
Tell me about your new al-
Yes, we're getting ready to go
into the studio. We don't know
the name of it yet. We're going
torecord it and whatever we feel
is the best song on the album we
will name the album after that
song. We' re gonna be going into
the studio very shordy. And
everybody can look for a new
album on The Mighty Clouds of
Joy on
Intersound Records. We're excited. We've got some great
material, great songs that we're
gonna be recording real soon. Nardwuar: Who are you?

What exactly, Beck, did Woody

He sort of wandered around and

were putting it and he would bang

look backwards and uh...
Why was he so great? Why do
you really like him? I don't know
very much about him. What's so
great about him?
Well, he was bringing out some
honest human natural communication and, you know, in a time when
a lot of that kind of stuff was suppressed.
Was he a one-man band?

people. He played in bluegrass
bands and he played in different

all sorts of stuff.

Beck, do you get booed much?
Umm, I don't think so.
I mean, are people expecting
your type of show when you get
on stage since the media sort of
portrays you as the 'born to be

did in their May 1994 edition? So
like when people arrive at the
gigs, are they ready for something weird or can you actually
Urn, I think it's a little of both, you
know. It's like, each person in the
audience has their own expectations and all that stuff so, you
know, it's different.
But don't you ever feel like when
you get up on-stage and you finish and maybe you don't play the
big hit "Loser," everybody in the
audience loves it because you are
rebelling. Like, the record execs
are like, 'I just love that guy
Beck. He is just so wacky, he
won't play his hits when people
want it.' Doesn't that make you
feel weird?
ean, I don't even
know what to say. Can you say
that again? You've got some
kind of like fire in your groin
or something.
No no, I'm just curious,
Beck. You get onstage there
and a lot of the time, the industry execs who probably
signed you, signed you because you're wild, you're
wacky, you're way out
there. So when you get
off-stage after performing on, say, Top of the
Pops or being on MTV
with Thurston acting
really wacky, you can
get offstage and instead
of the industry execs
going,   'Man,   Beck
made  a fool  of us,'
they're like, 'AU right,
that wacky Beck guy.'
They can use this in marketing.
MCA Records put out a video of
the out-takes of you from MTV
doing station IDs. A lot of artists
- like Alice Cooper, for instance
- would be ashamed to show
their mistakes but they're not
afraid to show your mistakes.
They sort of love it when you're
wild. How does it make you feel?
Does it make you want to go nor-
Yeah, sometimes I'll dust off the
old hymnal and play a few organ
songs, "Nearer My God To Thee,"
and a few other classics, "Rock My
Amadeus." And, um, you know,
sometimes the wackiness just sort
of implodes on itself and, uh, you
end up doing a few John Denver
covers by accident.

No, I'm not into that stuff.

I've been reading Discorder
forever. I mean, I'm as old
school as it gets -1 didn't just
happen to pick up a seven inch
one day, I invented the damn
thing. So, being as old school as
I am, you can imagine how
annoyed I get when these kids
like little Grant Lawrenece
pretend they know something
about vinyl. I finally lost it a
week ago: Grant was at a show
and I heard him mouthing off
about something. I can't even
remember what he was saying
since the fit of rage that he
inspired in me erased all
memory of everything except
the red curtain of anger that
blinded me, followed by the
frantic voice of the waitress
saying, "Somebody call an
ambulance!"
Anyways, with two black
eyes and a broken arm (his
writing arm), Grant wasn't in
any condition to do his column.
He claims to be out on tour but I
think his parents sent him and
his Smugglers on a month's
vacation to recover from the
'emotional trauma' of my
assault. Remember, you got the
true story here first!
I'd really like to hate the
Smugglers - Grant is their singer
afterall - but I can't Music does
indeed soothe the savage beast
and those boys are just too damn
good at the party pop-punk thing
for me to hate them. In fact if I
had heard their most recent
release with the Hoods a week
earlier, I may have been easier
on little Grant The Hoods,
however, are a different story: I
could definitely do without
them. (Smugglers, c/o 2874
Bellevue, West Vancouver, BC,
V7V 1E8)
But enough about that, let's
get on with some new good
things...or should I say New
Bad Things? The first time I
heard this band, I hated them. I
had envisioned NBT to be punk
like Rancid. When I heard horns
and electronic pianos, I was
confused. But considering all
the generic punk/hardcore out
there, it is refreshing to hear
skilled musicians that still have
a light-hearted approach as
opposed to the frustrated white
boy so loudly heard in hardcore
and punk. I love "Robin Hood"
and "Chewbacca." The flip side
is a tad too groovy for me, I
child. If my music is going to
sound retro, I prefer it to be the
jangly 60's SF Seals variety.
I've decided that "Don't
Underestimate Me" will be the
national anthem for my own
little country called Trishland -
"Don't ever think that I am just
another girl / I'll prove it to you
when I'm at the top of the
world!" Yeah! (Candy Ass
Records, P.O. Box 42382,
Portland, OR, 97242)
Built to Spill has a two song
release out on K records. The
A-side, "Joyride," is a little
ditty about girls and crashing
cars with guitar that sometimes
sounds like Shadowy Men. (But
I forgive them, it actually
sounds really cool.) The B-side
is called "Sick and Wrong,"
but I can't find anything bad to
say about it (K Records, P.O.
Box 7154, Olympia, WA,
98507)
Pest's new release, on the
other hand, lives up to their
name. I like "Blister," it's
clanky and choppy and who can't
relate to buying new shoes and
suffering from it The singer also
makes a really cool noise at the
end of each chorus that sounds
like the female version of that
noise the guy on tv's Home
Improvement makes in the show's
intro. As for the other two songs,
they've been done far too many
times before. (Harriet Records,
P.O. Box 649, Cambridge, MA,
02238)
Vancouver's Ten Day's Late
have released a two songer on
their own label. The production is
better than their other releases
and leaves TDL sounding
heavier. "Death Reggae" is so
heavy, I love it! Good going
girls! My version is a pre-release,
I think, so the address will be
available on the sleeve when it is

Bellingham's Gritty Kitty
Records brings us a new Grover
seven inch called Dave Approaches Infinity. If you haven't
noticed, I' m a sucker for cute
vocals, and Grover's got 'em!
The band also has plenty of
fuzzy, happy guitar and feedback.
Fresh out of high school, these
boys are ready to rock! Sometimes though, the vocals sound
very similar to those of Crayon's
Brad, but we can't really blame
him for his voice. (Gritty Kitty
Records, P.O. Box 5145,
Bellingham, WA, 98227)
Maybe Sparkmarker's music
isn't cute, but Vancouver's kings
of hardcore have released two,
count 'em two, new seven inches:
Alomos and Scallen. That's
fourteen inches of great music
right there! Although I haven't a
copy in front of me, they are
available in stores. All the
material coming out is from last
summer's recording in New York
and will be released with material
from the last seven inch on a CD.

Just to destroy my theme of
west coast bands, I thought I'd
review the new Tsunami release
on Virginia's Simple Machines
Records. I might just be blind, but
I can't find a title for this release.
I bought it because the cover was
interesting, with flags of the
world, including Tsunami's very
own, as its theme. Unfortunately,
the release doesn't live up to the
pretty cover. I don't
think it is a good
thing that Tsunami

more boring, with

"Carson," that are

them more and
more; two girls sing together, one
voice is very melodic and the
other screams back ups. The Lync
track is called "Firestarter" and it
is so catchy, even though the first
listen of the vocals sounds too
much like Smashing Pumpkins.
(That eerie feeling went away
with time.) I fell in love with
Lync when I heard them on Yoyo
Studios' Julep compilation last
year, and they don't fail tm with
this release. Their style has
changed since then, but I think it
has become better. "Firestarter"
has just got me all excited. It's
like someone has started a fire
underneath me, and the only way
to put it out is to boogie my way
down to my local record store and
buy a copy of my own!

Folk Songs of Newfoundland
(Folkaways)
When I heard that Mofo was
taking a sabbatical, I knew my
chance had come. Since the
tender, spotted age of fourteen I
had been collecting vinyl like it
was going out of style. Then,
one day, it did. Since 1990 my
record-purchasing venues have
become increasingly limited in
number but also more bizarre in
content.
Whereas I once cruised the
bins at Zulu for the latest but
one Pogues release or vintage
Billy Bragg, the only enticing
selections I now come across are
more in the vein of Gracias Por
La Musica , ABBA's Spanish
language album. After my
classic rock phase (I'm not
ashamed to admit it) fizzled out,
the biannual Kitsilano
Community Centre record swap
meet held not treasures like The
Best of Cream but excitement in
the guise of Sing-along With A
Banjo Song.
Without further a-doo, here
are some of the more dear, and
endearing, selections from my
collection. In the classic

EVERY American conflict

July 4
It's finally happened, and I can
thankfully say that I'm proud of
it. My cherry's been popped; I am
no longer on the outside of the
action; I am no longer innocent: I
have seen a rockin' band, I have
gotten stinkin' drunk, I have
danced, and I have made a fool of
myself for the first time ever at
that Vancouver institution, the
Railway Club.
I have to admit that I have
been to the Railway Club before
and I've even danced and gotten
drunk there. But its' always been
in a somewhat voyeuristic
manner. I went to "The Spirit of
Christmas", Spirit of the West's
formerly annual sing-a-long, but
as I had never seen those Celtic
North Shore sons at the club in
their hey-day, I didn't quite feel I
belonged in that swayingly
inebriated, joyously songful
crowd. (Not that I was barred
from participation or in any way
inhibited myself from joining in.)
Similarly, when I checked out
rockabilly kings, the Rattled
Roosters, my mate and I enjoyed
the sets and let the beverages
vended get us all riled up, but we
still were a little shy about
throwing ourselves into the
action and dynamic of one of the
few venues in this town that has
action or a dynamic.
On tlie now fondly remembered night in question, I had no
forewarning that anything out of
the ordinary would happen. (Isn't
that always the way?) I had
dropped by one of my favourite
watering holes, Tlie Old
Spaghetti Factory in Gastown, to
quaff with old friends, when I
was coerced, by a friend of the
band, into seeing a gig at The
Railway Club. In a spontaneous
mood and not into looting, I went
along for a little locomotion.
Unlike most situations in my
life, I went for a little, I got a lot.
Whenever a friend recommends
another friend's (or boy/girl
friend's) band, warning vibes
shoot through my body. One of
the most awkward situating on
earth involves seeing shitty
bands who are in some way
connected with people you know
and then having to bald-faced he
about the band's 1) talent; 2)
ability to put on a show; and 3)
potential. Thank god this was not
necessary when I was subjected
to that night's performance by
Banshee Reel, the up-until-now
much ignored subject of this
Celtic in sound, spirit and
temperament and New Zealand-
ers by nationality, Banshee Reel
capture the essence of what I
have always thought of as the
perfect party music. Judging by
their plentiful and thrilling
covers, the band's main
influences are The Waterboys
and The Pogues and they stayed
true to their roots throughout
their performance. Though they
have been overheard to make
disparaging remarks about the
aforementioned pioneers of
Vancouver Celtic rock, Spirit of
the West, Banshee Reel can be
honestly and favourably
compared to early versions of
that band.
What made my night with
Banshee Reel so pleasurable was
not so much their infectiously up
beat or their exciting stage
presence but their ability to work
the Railway Club like it should
be worked. An early invocation
from the (very cute) electric
mandolin player got the dance
floor hoppin' for the duration of
the evening. At the climax of the
show, half the band came down
off the stage to let their feet
boogie with the crowd while
their hands kept the reel flying.
I haven't had as much fun at a
small-venue gig since the

PANSY DIVISION
Railway Club
JulyS
I must confess right away that I
have a certain personal fondness
for Pansy Division which may
somewhat influence my review
of their July 5 gig at the Railway
Club . Coming from a family
which was, and still is, in
terminal denial I had a lot of
trouble coming to terms with
myself and the fact that I'm gay.
(The only thing that was more
difficult for me to come to terms
with was the realization, upon
seeing Dazed And Confused that
"Slowride" is perhaps the
greatest song ever recorded.) I
became aware of my sexual
orientation at roughly the same
time that I became aware of my
first erection but knowing
something does not mean
accepting it as the simple reality
that it is. I wasted a perfectly
good adolescence moping around
the house feeling alone and
inhuman, a typical casualty of
the self-loathing that intolerance
(implied or explicit) breeds. By
the time I was seventeen I had
discovered how well regular drug
and alcohol use could excuse my
lack of girlfriends and I went into
an intense and extended period of
experimentation with everything
I could get my hands on. I
floated into my twenties as an
asexual drug fiend until, hopped
20 ESKSSEEjiLB
up and still unhappy, I slowly
lost my taste for oblivion and
came to realize that the only way
to shake my blues was to accept
myself: Les Vegas, flaming
Anyways, to make an already
long story a bit shorter, seeing
Pansy Division perform live is
one of the most hilariously self-
affirming experiences a fag,
especially an alterna-fag, can
have. Mixing together refreshingly honest and genuinely witty
lyrics with a catchy pop-punk
groove a la the Ramones and
Jonathan Richman, Pansy
Division are just plain cool. The
first time I saw them was at the
"Stonewall Was A Riot"
showcase during MusicWest. I
was instantly hooked; moshing
to PD's version of "Smells Like
Queer Spirit" with a bunch of
other Doc-totin' homos was
practically a religious experience.
I saw them again a few days later
at Automotive (love those
MusicWest venues) where I got a
chance to play Spot-The-Uptight- Straight-Guys, a game made
especially easy by the periodic
mini-exoduses caused by lyrics
such as "He never even stuck a
finger up his butt/Just to see how
it would feel." Gig number three
at the Railway was another
seering soiree in the city (despite
the absence of the bunny bearing
go-go boy who hopped up on
stage at the end of Pansy
Division's last two shows) and I
even got a hot date out of the
evening. The set list for this show
seemed to focus more on material
from the band's latest album
Deflowered, including such new
faves as "Groovy Underwear",
"James Bondage" and "Fluffy
City", a song that should be
played at The Odyssey,
Celebrities, and every gym in
town: "Feel hke I landed on
another planet/Of clones with
gym tits hard as granite./Body
fascists rule this land/Where can
I find a flat-chested man?/Met a
guy, what a joke/He touched his
hair and it broke/Conversation
was a strain/He crossed his legs
and crushed his brain."
The crowd was enthusiastic if
a bit small (I guess Ken Dolls
have no sense of humour) and I'm
pretty sure fun was had by all. It
was certainly had by me.

JOSHUA REDMAN
QUARTET
Vogue Theatre
June 26
Joshua Redman's Vancouver
debut proved that he deserves all
the praise given to him by critics
and jazz fans alike. Even though
he has only twenty-five years of
living behind him, his prowess on
the saxophone is as mature as
that of his father, Dewey
Redman, and his peers.
Redman Jr. and his band,
which features Brian Blade on
drums, Brad Mehldau on piano,
and the most prolific young bass
player on the
scene, Christian
McBride, played to
an enthusiastic
sold-out crowd at
the Vogue Theatre.

performance of "The Deserving
of Many", a tune gleaned from
his latest album, was impressive.
I found his new ballad, "Sweet
Sorrow", truly moving.
Not only can Redman
captivate his audience with his
music, but his stage persona is
gready enhanced by the fact that
he seems to be a charming man
with a great sense of humour. He
expressed to the capacity crowd
his surprise and joy that the
theatre was packed despite some
competition from the (also sold-
out) Pink Floyd show taking
place the same night.
I left the concert that night
thinking that the future of
mainstream jazz was in good
hands indeed.

BIFF NAKED
The Hungry Eye
July 2nd
Okay, I'm drunk now and I was
drunk then, so bear with me. First
of all, Biff rocked my world.
Second, they never should've built
the skytrain out to Whalley (or is
that Rootin' Tootin' Newton?). Biff
was as bodacious as always,
despite management's request for a
more toned-down version of The
Babe. The Hungry Eye was way
too hot (note to HE management:
cranking the heat does n& sell
more booze) but Biff and her
entourage (Siobhan, Brian and
Russ) coulda melted Georgia
ashphalt in the iciest of venues.
Buy the album or you'll never get
laid. If you missed the show, you
are a loser. Sorry I had to tell you
but that's life.

Hang on to yer toques, sports

sounds of 20 heavy hittin'
Canadian icetime favourites. If
you're new to the bone-crunching

you've got two heavy hits

Every track on this comprehensive collaboration is dedicated to
our new co-official national
sport, and each is played with

boys' school choir.
With song titles such as
"Moonlight Medicine," "Endless
Road," "Magical Spring," and
"Rolling Thunder," plus an
accompanying bio that describes
the music on the album as
"smoky, slow and psychedelic, [a
mixing] together of Indian and
European music, a druggy
chorus, strings, a hint of voodoo,
squealing lead guitar and
Hammond organ," Carnival of

Carnival of Light

Considering that they were just in

Floyd have released not one, but
two new albums in the last little
while. The second, entitled
Carnival of Light, was released
under the pseudonym Ride but is
quite obviously Pink Floyd in
disguise: one needs only a quick
listen to ascertain that this is
indeed the work of prog-rock
dinosaurs and not of that once
innovative and exciting quartet
from Oxford who seem to have
disappeared from the face of the
earth.

SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE
(SubPop)
With their newest SubPop
release, entitled Diary, Sunny
Day Real Estate make you
question how long it will be
before the majors are able to
snatch up this band. Never, some
would say, but there isn't a label
out there that wouldn't love to
have this band.
Diary is a collection of 11
songs, most of which are loaded
with energy and melody. Two of
the stand-out songs are "Seven"
and "Shadows", but there are no
weak songs here - each track has
its own catchy hook, and only
occasionally does the band sound
derivative or, perhaps, comparable to an unrefined mixture of
Seaweed and Soul Asylum.
The music isn't all there is to
this package. Gracing the booklet
are inventive paintings of Fisher-
Price figurines by Christopher
Thompson which are well worth
looking at - almost enough of an
excuse to make you want to buy
the CD without even listening to
it Fortunately, the songs are an
even better reason.

ALPHA YAYA DIALLO
Nine
(Independent)
If Nine is any indication, Alpha
Yaya Diallo can more than hold
his own on the World Beat stage.
I like Nini a lot and can't help*
but be moved by the rhythms
contained within. Multi-
instrumentalist Diallo, who was
born in Guinea, sings and plays
in the West African Malinke
style. This is of the Jeli caste, and
is traditionally performed at
weddings or other celebrations.
We're talkin' up beat here - the
complete antithesis of Morrissey.
The songs are not without depth,
though. "Yaadu," for example,
deals with the adventure and
risks involved in travel through
and out of Africa.  "Djarabi" tells
us of the pain of betrayal and
loneliness. How do I know these
things? Translations are included
with the lyrics. But for me its the
music itself that speaks the
loudest. The album is full of
hypnotic, traditional rhythms,
including those of the opener,
"Yeke Yeke." Loosely translated,
Yeke Yeke refers to a style of
being which brings happiness -
the mood of Nini is set with this
With his band, Bafing,
Alpha Yaya Diallo shares his
culture with us. With this
release, well recorded and co-
produced with Kevin (the
Bedouins) Finseth, we have
that culture at our fingertips.

the music falls somewhere in
between Seaweed and Green
Day, which in my books ain't
half bad at all.
As enjoyable as most of these
songs truly are, I couldn't help
but get a feeling of pretentiousness from the overtly serious
lyrics. Maybe it's just 'cuz they
enclosed a lyric sheet - always a
bad move unless you're the
Ramones.
Included on the disc is all
three tunes from BNU's 7" of
1993 (a move that always pisses
me off, since it makes the vinyl
basically uncollectible),
including the anfhemic and
perfectly timed "Summertime."
For the most part, Under The Big

from these Town Pump punks.

So, what do I think about
Parklife, the new CD by Blur,
who are touted in Britain's Select
magazine as "the best British
bands since The Smiths?" I
fuckin' love it!
Parklife starts off with the
single, "Girls and Boys," which
poses the lyrical conundrum,
"Girls who are boys/ who like
boys to be girls/who do boys like
they're girls/who do girls like
they're boys/Always should be
someone you really love."
What's a boy/girl to do 7 Parklife
continues in a very nice XTC-
like vein in "Tracy Jacks," a song
about a civil servant who loses it.
"Clover Over Dover" is a clever
retake on the classic World War
II song, "The White Cliffs of
Dover," but Blur changes it from
being a rallying cry to something
entirely more morbid: "and now
the bluebirds are over/the white
cliffs of Dover/so when you push
me over/don't bury me I'm not
worth anything."
As you've probably guessed,
Blur are very English, and
unabashedly so. With song titles
"Bank Holiday" and "London
Loves," and references to spotty
teenagers and Walton, a lot of
people on this side on the pond
might not understand Parklife.
Like The Smiths, Blur celebrate
and criticise English life at the

While-
enjoyable, the a
Codeine's latest release are
gloomy to say the least, with an
energy that is generally subtle
with occasional interludes of
intensity. There are no straight-
laced pop songs here, even
though the nine songs on the disc
are all similarly melodic, if
somewhat repetitive. Actually,
this leads to my only criticism:
from one track to the next it can
be difficult to ascertain that a
new song has indeed begun.
Every song has similar tempo,
dynamics and general structure,
and this makes me wonder if they
know how to write more than just
one tune with eight variations.
Nevertheless, The White Birch is
a CD that I intend to listen to
many times, the blissful
melancholy that it is.

Smell the Glove
The most mysterious
band in the land! Canada's newest pop/punk

Goo Dolls on their 20-
song fun-filled debut. A
soon-to-be classic from
those lovable eggs

-Wyle E. Coyote
Recorded at Doubletime

punk rock power. Hailing
from the thriving rock

this is a must have for

TCHKUNG
Tchkung
An excellent new album
featuring a mix of tribal,
trance and house. Look
for Oracle U's second full
length, Walking Common
Ground, for a completely
new turn in electronic
music.
TEXTURE
Texture
"...A savage ritual of
musical damage."
"...A chaotic barrage of
powerful percussion and
primal howling."
"A straight guy pressed
against my ass from
behind. If this is the effect
of Tchkung, break out the
CD's!"
"No stunts, no blunts, no
fronts. I love this group."
-Tipper Gore
"I'm jealous and scared.
My son should not hear
this."
-Ice T's mom

Bob Mould
• Poison Years
Bob Mould was once a spearhead for
North American hardcore, but not until
the split of the absurdly influential
Hiisker Dii and the release of his solo
albums was he truly appreciated. Poison
Years is Bob Mould's quintessential
greatest hits collection and a chronicle of
one of the post-punk generation's unsung
lyrical heroes, I'i'.e live tracks, including
Richard Thompson's Sluxrt Ont The Lights,
make this an enticing release for anyone
truly appreciative of sincerity and finely-
crafted songwriting.

Zillatron
® Lord of the Harvest
Lord of the Harvest is the creation
of Bootsy Collins and Bill
Laswell. Designed as a vehicle for
radical extrapolations of funk into
the virgin territories of ambient,
hardcore, techno, and beyond.
Zillatron also features Praxis
bandmates Bernie Worrell on
keyboards, and Buckethead on
guitar. Unbelievably monsterous,
this release makes Infectious
Grooves sound like the Jackson 5.
