the cruel elephant
FUCKIN DIG IT
Worshipping a false god has never been so good. Live
Intense worship has now been placed In days of the
week unlike ever before brothers ana sisters, Amen. So
now worship simply includes food (to help with the
energy expended at live worship levels). Amen. When
you donate your money In appreciation of the music
events you are about to be witness to and a meal Is a
must. I have seen you, brothers and sisters, laugh and
cry and stare looking slightly confused but worship was
never meant to be easy; time Is also a factor you must
remember the the cruel elephant has room for only so
many believers at one time so please If you Intend to
pray with us one night you must come early or we may
turn you away (I must pause while I wipe away a tear at
the thought, Amen) Into the abyss that remains a dark
night of sorrow loneliness and despair Indeed (I pause)
Amen remember the cruel elephant Is the only place
you can wine and dine to the music of a New Generation
soiled c
id unsolled.

1176 GRANVILLE STREETi
i I Urban Dance Squad is the most exciting band out of Holland since The
Legendary Pink Dots. The debut album    Mental Floss For The Globe
a Dance/Funk/Rap/Metal hybrid that rebels against the current
stagnation of much of today's dance and rap, replacing it with
fashioned sweat and real instruments. I recently talked to DJ
DNA over the phone from
Holland just before
the band set off on
yet another North
American Tour.
DISCORDER: You don't
use samplers and stuff like
that. Is that because you've
never needed to, or because
you have something against
that technology?
DNA: Our music style
grew on stage, and I like
to have people see what's
happening; where the sound
comes from. Our songs just
sort of grew by playing with
them by hand, and in the studio
we find things to sample, but I do
it by hand. Actually, now I've got a
very simple sampler, but I use it to
sample the band members.
D: How do you do, for instance, the
"Strong Island" sample on the track
"Fast Lane" live?
DNA: I just play the record. Sometimes
there are problems, like if the stage
bounces. Usually it's alright and I like it
much better [than sampling].
D: Being a "REAL BAND" must set
you apart from the wave of Euro-
Body-Music that's about. What do
you think of that stuff?
DNA: I do play European
Techno Music as a DJ, but it's
not used in the band. The
band is not really interested
in it.
D: Does the band come
from a rock or dance background?
DNA: It's different for every
member. I used to be really into
hip hop and stuff and before that
I was really into rock. The guitar
player likes American blues, Captain
Beefheart, a bit of Pedal Steel, he uses
some on the album. Robert Johnson is one
of his favorite players. The drummer is a Led
Zeppelin freak. Me and the bass player are also
big Parliament/Funkadelic freaks... Lee "Scratch"
Perry.... Rude Boy used to be a big Beatles fan.
D: What type of audiences do you draw at home?
DNA: Because of our mixed musical style, we get a really mixed
audience. That's one of the things I like most about this band. We
get young people mostly, but from all kinds of groups. If you like soft
music you shouldn't come. We play hard.
D: What about audience reaction in North America, where you're
taking funk back to the people who invented it?
DNA: It's getting like it is back in
started we were playing songs
Europe now. When we first
that nobody knew, but now
they've heard the
album and they're
standing at the front,
singing along. I think
the merging of races,
black music and white
music, that happened in
America, happened also
in Europe. I encountered
this big wave of American
music from the sixties on.
Most of the record labels
in Europe are American
owned, sometimes they
don't even take European groups, they're just
selling American product.
So for us to go over there
is good. It's the other way
around.
D: Have you got any plans for
world domination or are you just
having fun?
DNA: We're not really planning world
domination, but we are making a next
album. We're preparing it now. The first
album was alright, but we feel different
already. When we went to America in
April it was already more than a year
old for us. We've played this album
live for thirteen months and now
we're going to play it again, so
we're really dying to play something new. I think you'll hear from
us soon.
D: Rude Boy does his raps in
English. Is he an English
speaker?
DNA: No, he's from South
America, and he grew up
in Holland. He's from
Surinam, which is one of
the few non-Latin parts of
South America. The guitar
player is from Indonesia, the
bassist is also from Surinam.
D: Why do many European
bands choose English? Is it to
reach a bigger market i.e. The
States, or is it because their main
influences sing in English?
DNA: If you're living in a small country in
Europe, then still most of the music in the charts
is sung in English, people understand English.
English is the first language of this world and we want
to reach as many people as possible. But then there's
this strange thing about making it in America which is the
best reputation you can get in Europe. The song "Big Apple"
is about rappers in Europe who 100% imitate rappers in
America. You're in Europe; you've got to do your own style, what
you feel is good, not copy something and try to be American. e,

A NIRVANA PRESS KIT BY TOM
MILNE A few years ago I said, "Mom,
go to Toronto." And she went
in Toronto, When she came
back she said, "Son, I gol you
some records." (>ne record was
by the band Rio whose mem
hers had nice hair styles; my
mom had thought it was a girl
band bul it was really a guy
band. The olher record was a
seven incher by Shadowy Men
on a Shadowy Planet called
"Love Without Words." My
mom had gone up to the lady
in the record store and said, "I
wanl to have the two honest
records in Toronto" and she
was handed these records.
When my mom went to England I said, "Mom, bring mc
back some records." And she
brought me back some records.
She went into a store in Lon-
don and said, "Give me the
hottest record in the store."
and the guy in the store said.
"Here is a Bros, record." So
she does get the truth when
she asks for the hottest records
and boy. Shadowy Men arc
hot, so hot that when they
came to Vancouver, 228-2487
was a phone number that
drummer Don Pyle did not
forget to call.
NARDWUAR: Now, Mr. Don
Pyle of Shadowy Men on a
Shadowy Planet, what are the
names and ages of such a famous band as yours?
DON PYLE: Reid Diamond
is our bass player, Brian
Connelly is our guitar player
and our combined ages are
about a hundred.
N: You've been on the rock
and roll scene for a few years.
D: Six years.
N: You've actually played with
The Ramones, haven't you?
D: Yeah, we've played with
The Ramones, Husker Du,
Jesus and Mary Chain, The
Dundrells.
N: Did you learn any weird
habits from these stars, Mr.
Don Pyle of the rock group
Shadowy Men on a Shadowy
Planet?
D: I think we learned not to
take drugs from any of them.
We saw what long term drug
use does to your brain cells.
N: So they had soi
quirks about them?
: weird
fLAMCr
A_MArV
N: You've never said that to
one of your opening bands,
have you?
D: No, never, never. I' ve never
taken a Valium. I wouldn't
know how to say that.
N: You are from Toronto,
Ontario.
D: Yup.
N: What is Toronto, Ontario,
known for?
D: Kinda weird quirks. When
we met Dee Dee Ramone, the
first thing he said to us before
he said, "Hi, how ya doin'?"
was, "You got a valium?"
10 DISCORDER
D: At the moment, it seems
the Cowboy Junkies. Other than
that, there are a lot of reasonable
places to get tax returns done.
And there are some excellent
Vietnamese restaurants.
N: Isn't it known that every
band in Toronto is basically
signed?
D: Pretty much. There's a band
called the Manteyes that I've
never heard of, never seen play
before; they just have an album that just came out. It's
real sweepstakes time there
now. Everybody's getting
signed, everybody who's anybody sort of thing.
N: So I guess the question is,
"Why aren't YOU signed?" I
mean, you've been around for
six years. You saw the
Ramones do drugs. Wouldn't
it be logical that you would
have been signed long ago, to
somebody BIG?
D: Well, we ARE signed with
Cargo right now who are pretty
much as big as we want to be
signed with. There's not really any point with us even
considering signing with a
major label because we know
that being an instrumental band
and playing the sort of music
that we do, we have a pretty
limited audience. We're not
going to sell a million copies
of an album. If we got signed
to a major label, we would put
out one album with them and
then get dumped for not selling enough records and that
would be the end of that. So if
we go with somebody like
Cargo, they do a great job.
They get the records around.
They're very happy with the
number of records that we can
sell for a company like them.
N: What sort of distribution
did you have for your seven
inch records?
D: The distribution was all
done pretty much through
ourselves. We sold them at
shows. More and more, there
is no distribution companies
for seven inch records. ..Mostly
those were done like: you have
one person who runs a distribution company who heard you
on John Peel's radio show or
something and finds out your
address and writes to you and
says, "Send me fifty records,
please."
N: Did they end up in any
weird places?
D: We got a lot of letters from
Holland...there are people with
wooden shoes buying our
records.
N: But you got these records
out. Remarkable?
D: It's pretty remarkable. For
a seven inch it's even more
remarkable now. We're still
going to do seven inch records.
We're doing two more this
summer.
N: You've done very limited
runs of seven inch records.
D: We make only as many as
we can sell. It's expensive to
mail stuff in Canada and a lot
of places will take stuff on
consignment and won't buy
them outright. So you go to
Vancouver and a store takes
ten singles on consignment,
they sell them ten weeks later,
you don't get back to
Vancouver for a year and a
half, and then they say, "Well,
we can only pay you for one
year from your receipt date."
So they don't pay you and
consequently you eventually
have to stop dealing with almost everybody.
N: But you have some interesting releases such as your
seven inch with a nice Jiffy
Pop thing. Your motto was,
"It's a record, it's a snack,
half the fun's making it."
D: It went something like
that. "It's arecord, it's agame."
No, that's the other record.
"It's a record, it's a snack, it's
a record, it's a snack." I think
that was as complicated as the
sales pitch got.
N: It was an actual Jiffy Pop
with a seven inch record in it
and one of the tracks was you
shaking the Jiffy Pop.
D: It was actually Brian shaking the Jiffy Pop, but we don't
need to get technical. Yeah, it
was real Jiffy Pop. We went to
the Jiffy Pop factory and got
them. We saw Chef Boyardee
products being made. We saw
them making Bits-n-Bites and
Fiddle Faddle. The same people
who make Jiffy Pop make those
things. We got a dealer's rate
on it because we bought so
many.
N: How many did you buy?
D: The first five hundred came
like that.
N: Did you ever think of
throwing LSD in with some of
the popcorn for a bonus that
some listener or reader might
I): No, we wouldn't know
where to find LSD.
N: How about throwing in
some-
D: -Sominex or-
N:-some local XXX type drug
that would kill somebody.
Wouldn't it be great to start a
scare like aTylenol-type scare
only with a Jiffy Pop record?
D: No, if people are going to
be nice enough to buy our
record, I'd like them to live.
N: You also gave away a few
free EPs.
D: We did two singles which
were giveaway things. Both
were giveaways for shows we
did at the Rivoli in Toronto
which was where we did our
first show. One was a livesingle
of stuff we recorded at our
birthday show the previous
year. The other one was our
bass player doing a medley of
Neil Diamond songs which we
also did for our birthday show.
N: And this was on a 46 rpm
record. It really was 46 rpm?
D: It was approximately 46. It
might have been 49. But it
was definitely more lhan 45.
Some people without pitch
control had to play it at 45, but
those that did got the real
sound. We have a really crappy
independent record making
company in Canada called
World Records which I 'm sure
a lot of people even in
Vancouver probably know
about. They mastered it too
slow for some reason, maybe
because they felt like it so we
had to get this rubber stamp
made that said "46 RPM" on
N: So it turned out to be a
great thing.
D: Not if you don't have a
pitch control.
N: But it was a great marketing ploy.
D: It made our voices sound
deeper.
N: You linked up with the
highly intelligent K label by
playing Olympia Washington

OCTOBER 1990 11  ma m rom the bathroom I
Mj could see her
M 1 shadow on the wall;
*^*» lit was as she appeared last night. We had met
in a dark corner ofPJ.'s, way
at the back where only the
lonely go. She now stood next
to my bedroom window, clad
only in the shirt I wore the
night before and clutching
several pieces of paper. As 1
approached, 1 saw they were
the pages of my Trini Lopez
interview. She asked if I knew
Trini well; I answered that we
had met briefly once, for the
interview, just before that
landmark show last August at
the PNE Coca Cola Stage. She
began to tremble as tears
streamed down her cheeks.
"Did you know Trini
well?" I asked.
"Yes," she answered
softly. "Once."
Discorder: I understand you
have a new album coming out.
Trini: Yes...It's already out
in Europe. It's coming out here,
in America and Canada, by
the end of September on
Warner Bros.
D: Not the old Reprise label?
T:No...
D: What's the title on this?
T: It's called TriniLopez25th
Anniversary.
D: Who's the producer?
T: A friend of mine; a Dutch
fellow. His name is Richard
Dubois.
D: What's Don Costa doing
these days?
T: Oh, Don is gone. He's no
longer with us.
D: That's too bad.
T: Yeah, he started my career.
Don was a very good friend of
mine. The first 12 of my albums were produced and arranged by Don Costa.
D: I personally like the Rhythm
And Blues album.
T: Thank you! I love that album!
D: So what's the deal with the
tour? Is this your first stop?
T: No, this is just a one
nighter...just a little thing that
I do once and a while. I don't
work as much as I used to. I
used to be Oh the road, all over
the world, for six months, eight
months. I sort of semi-retired
about nine years ago and I just
wanted to relax and enjoy life.
I went to Palm Springs, to my
home there, and just played
tennis and golf and had a good
time. Then, all of a sudden, a
movie came up called La
Bamba.  Do you know that
D: Uh, yeah. Well, I know the
song.
T: It's my biggest hit, all over
the world, and my phone started
ringing again and people
wanted me to record and this
and that, so I said OK; make
me the right deal and I'll do it.
Makemeanofferlcan't refuse.
D: I thought "If I Had A Hammer" was the big one. It sold
12 million units or something
like that.
T: It is. I've got 28 international hit singles, and "If I
Had A Hammer" is one of them
and "La Bamba" is another.
"I'm Coming Home, Cindy"
is another; "Lemon Tree";
"Michael Row Your Boat
Ashore"; "Kansas City," and
all kinds of stuff.
D: We were listening to a tape
on the way over here, singing
along.
T: Were you? Was it my oldies but goodies?
D: This was The Entertainer,
I believe.
T: The Entertainer, oh boy!
That's pirate??
D: Yeah, it's on K-Tel.
T: It's not the same quality as
my masters. Everybody goes
through that, you know. After
so many years, the big major
labels sell the masters to some
other label and they reproduce
and reproduce and reproduce
and by the time you hear it,
it's not the same quality. But I
hope you enjoyed it anyways.
D: Oh yeah! Myself and a
friend, between us, we have
23 of your albums, two CDs, a
and an 8-track.
T: You're kidding. Isn't that
nice. That's great.
D: As for the tour, where are
you going?
T: Well, what happened was
when the album came out, they
wanted me to go to 14 countries in Europe. I went all over
Europe in two and a half
weeks...and I went to all these
cities: Paris, London, Helsinki,
Amsterdam and I did all the
biggest TV shows, all the biggest tv specials. And I headlined the shows, with all kinds
of people, all kinds of acts. Of
course, they were all variety
shows. So I did that to promote the album and it's on the
charts now in Europe. Now,
hopefully, I'll do something
here.
D: Is this your first time in
Vancouver?
T: Oh no, I used to sing here
many years ago. At The Cave.
Remember The Cave?
D: No, that's before my time.
T: That wasTHE place to work
around here. All the biggest
names used to come and do
shows there and I worked there
many, many years.
D: So what can we expect to
see tonight?
these people...Julio Iglesias,
all these people.
D: You mentioned "La
Bamba." Was that written by
Richie Valens or was it a traditional oldie?
T: Nobody knows who wrote
"La Bamba" because it's so
old. It's what you call PD:
Public Domain.
D: I still like your version the
best.
T: Thank you... My father
taught me that song when I
was very young and lhat's really my bread and butter song.
I always close with that song,
in fact. It's such a nice, happy,
sing-a-long and dance tune...
I started in '64, and from the
very beginning, my records
became party records. Everybody would put on one cut
right to the end then turn it
around and hear the whole thing
because they are all happy,
And they said "Why not?" I
said, "Well in America (and I
was real honest, or thought I
was) we have a real good group
that I think are better...called
the Beach Boys." And little
did I know that they would be
such a smash. The headlines
in Paris...used to say Bravo,
Trini Lopez, Who Are The
Beatles? They were just getting started. They had "I Wanna
Hold Your Hand" and I had
"If I Had A Hammer."

thing. I've always been into
variety.
D: You've done Folk, Latin,
Rock, Spanish, so when is the
Rap album coming out?
T: Can I tell you something? I
told my record producer that I
would love to do some of those
things. I would love it.
D: Really?
T: Yeah, that would be great.
D: What do you think of this
whole Latin revival...Los Lo-
bos, Gypsy Kings...
T: That's why I'm beginning
to get calls. I started before all
records. And that's exactly
what helped me a lot.
D: I read you played with the
Beatles.
T: It's very funny because
when I think of the Beatles, I
think of when I used to work
with them, two shows a night,
three on Saturdays, and right
before they came to America,
we were closing the last week
at a place called the Olympia
Theatre in Paris, which to this
day is still THE place to work,
and all the reporters used to
say to me, "What do you think
the Beatles are going to do
when they come to America,
do you think they'll be a hit?"
I said "No, I don't think so."
T: Everything. I like Phil
Collins, I like the Gypsy Kings,
everybody. I'm into all the
latest songs [Trini opened up
his set with rousing renditions
of George Michael's "Faith"
and the theme from Beverly
Hills Cop II - ed.]. I listen to
the radio all the time.
D: What was the thing with
PJ's?
T: That was THE place in town
in 1961-63 when I was there. I
was booked for three months
and I stayed a year and a half.
But that was the beginning of
my career because that's where
Sinatra discovered me and Don
Costa. I always wanted to
record at a studio and Don
Costa says "Well we'd like to
do your first album here." I
said, "Where? Here at this
place? Why here?" He said,
"Because we want to capture
all the excitement you are creating." So that made sense. I
said OK but I said, "I'll tell
you what, one condition that
as soon as I do that, I want to
go into a studio." I was dying
to record in a studio like everybody else. So the album
comes out and it was number
one all over the world. It had
like six hit songs, the album
was platinum and everything,
so I said "OK, can we go in the
studio now?" He said, "No,
we're going to do one more."
_o it was called More Live at
PJ's. That was THE place.
That's where Steve McQueen
used to hang out and Paul
Newman, and everybody that
was just getting started. Clint
Eastwood, Burt Reynolds, they
used to stand in line to come
and see me.
D: With the new album coming out, are you going to do a
video?
T: Oh yeah, sure, that's in the
plans already... two or three
songs we're going to do. They
want me to go to Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka is way out there.
There's a movie being made
by Chuck Norris and they want
me to do a big show for the TV
people and the producer wants
to meet me and we 're going to
do a big show there and at the
same time they want to finance
me with their cameras and all.
D: And these are all going to
be original, new songs?
T: My album is a little bit of
everything. One side are all
my biggest hits, but all the
latest technology, state of the
art, you know, everything
digitally recorded and all that,
and new arrangements, and the
other side is all new songs
written just forme. Which, by
the way, I've never had every
song [on an album] written for
me. This is the first time. I had
writers that sat down and wrote
jusl for Trini Lopez, so it's
really good songs, not just
because it's my album, bul
I've got some good tunes in
there. I got a song in there
called "Tijuana Radio" that
you guys will love.
D: You know we'll be buying
T: I wish I could show you it.
I'm really excited about il. I
haven't recorded in a long time;
it's been about 14 years.
D: Where did you record it?
T: I recorded it at a couple of
big studios on Sunset Blvd.
Somereally finestudios, where
everybody records. Some of
the Miami Sound Machine guys
are in there, and I have
Madonna's guitar player, and
I have some very fine singers.
So it's a hot album.
D: You've been around for
twenty-five years, you must
have some fond memories.
T: Oh, yes. I've been around
the world at least three times
in my twenty-five years. I've
paid my dues, like they say.
D: Trini, you will not believe
this! I have a Trini Lopez tattoo.
T: (much laughter) Come on.
In a decent place?
D: (showing tattoo) Trini
Rocks!
T: Oh my god! Is that a real
tattoo?
D: It's real.
T: You're kidding.
D: I kid you not.
T: My god! I've never heard
that one before.

(qiow you share in my deep sorrow over the untimely -passing of
Jim JiensonSTo help ease our anguish, Brothers and sisters, we
present to you now a tribute to the Man who brought us so much
joy simply by sticking his hand up a frog's ass. Freiheit fuer die Sklaven.
Freiheit.freiheit, befreit euch,
fight for your life, anarchy in
your sex, escape your cages
and catch this last train of
rage. Ride on, ride on, Lenin's

them all, those dreadful slaves
of passions and history. God

Sklaven" (trans. "Freedomfor
the Slaves")
And God bless Alex Spalck
and Maurizio Fasolo, vocalist
and Atari baby, respectively,
of Firenze, Italia's offering to
the world of hard electro-body
music: Pankow. Yes, God bless
Mr. Spalck and Mr. Fasolo who,
with their floppy discs of gold
and flasks of Chianti and S.
Pellegrino, took an orphaned
Discorder writer in off the
dusty, urinated-upon-for-
centuries, American tourist-
infested Florentine alleyways,
sat him down in a corner of
their studio and let him share
in their Pankowian lives for
an all too brief half hour during that European vacation,
summer 1990.
ART AND MADNESS
BY LLOYD ULIANA
16 DISCORDER
SPALCK: "Freiheit fuer die
Sklaven" is not a political song.
It's inspired by the psychiatrist Ronald Laing whose belief was that sick people,
mentally ill people, are stronger and have a stronger kind
of freedom than do normal
people because they don't see
the limits and the chains. We
have so many rules and so many
laws which limit our possibilities and our activities. They
don't see them. They act very
free. "Freiheit filer die Sklaven"
is like an Expressionist shout;
this shout ringing out. I wanted
to express this instinctive rebellion. You've got to be free.
I don't know from what, I don't
know from whom because I
really can't see who is controlling me and my soul, but
you have to react somehow
and not be subjected like a
slave to common points of
view.
Taking their name from a
district in East Berlin, Pankow
had their beginnings in the early
1980s, having recorded a
handful of 12"s: "Touch,"
"Gimme More," "Kunst und
Wahnsinn," "Me and My Ding
Dong," and two LPs: Freiheit
fuer die Sklaven and Gisela,
their debut North American
release.
DISCORDER: Like Laibach
and Nitzer Ebb, you incorporate strong Germanic elements
and imagery. Has Pankow been
criticized for the use o\ this
symbolism?
S: Yeah, we had a couple reviews of the last LP, Gisela,
especially the one in the Melody
Maker which said that we have
a fascist attitude in the way we
compose our music, particularly for the track "Let Me Be
Stalin."
Let me be Stalin. I say slow
killing is justified.
Let me be Stalin. I say sweet
killing is justified.
Let me be Stalin. Slow
killin'.
Let me be Stalin. Sweet
killin'...
If you feel the need to see
blood 'round,
just choose the weapon.
If you feel the need to see
blood around,
just choose the victim...
It's quite obvious that this type
of music, electronic music, is
often connected to fascism. It
started with DAF. Everybody
who is doing this kind of music runs this risk. We really
don't care so much about it.
We chose a name which was
almost communist (East Berlin was Soviet territory - ed.)
and they accuse us of being
fascists! We're not involved
politically, as a band, so we
really have no definite position
on these kinds of things.
D: Having observed the grafitti
on the walls here in Firenze, I
must ask the question, is there
much anti-fascist sentiment in
the city?
S: Not really. There used to be
in the 70s and in the beginning
ofthe 80s. There were clashes
between police and students.
But really, in the last five, six
years, nothing is happening anymore. Also in politics everything is becoming always
quieter and youth doesn't care
anymore about politics and
about progress and ideals and
stuff like that. Italy is becoming a selfish country. Everybody is becoming, I don' t want
to say it, rich, but has enough
money to do what they want
so there's really no involvement anymore in political activities.
D: (looking around the room)
But you seem to be quite well
off here. Do you have any
complaints? What are your
complaints about Italian society?
S: It's very hard to emerge
from this kind of situation. For
example, in the musical scene,
there's really no particular
energy coming out and so we
have to do everything by ourselves and it took us much
longer than if we had been
based in Germany or England.
He (Maurizio) started Pankow
in 1981/1982,1 joined him in
1983 and it was really a long
time before we had a contract
with our record company and
before we could go to play
abroad, in Europe and so on.
It was three times harder than
if we had been a German band
or a Belgian band.
D: Why do you suppose Yugoslavia has such a healthy
music scene? I'm thinking in
particular of three bands-
Borghesia, Autopsia and
Laibach.
S: In Yugoslavian society there
are many more critical conflicts among different regions.
It's a much more violent society, and a much more unsatisfied society, so it's probably
the reason why it's possible to
do something more creative.
Here, people are more quiet,
more satisfied and they have a
full belly (laughs) and so they
don't care about going a step
beyond.
D: Does Pankow receive support from Italian radio?
5: In Italy, we are not so popu-
D: Pankow is a very hard
sounding band, yet looking at
your lyrics, I notice that there
are no attacks on the government. What serves as the inspiration for your lyrics?
5: Personal experience. I always try to express my personal points of view on different situations. One ofthe most
important inspirations are my
studies. I'm studying psychiatry, so I'm very interested
in mental diseases and human
behaviour which I sometimes
try to analyze from a different
point of view, fitting myself
into those kinds of strange
behaviours and trying to understand sickness as much as I
can.
D: How about "Gimme More"?
("Gimme more, much more.
Kill the poor. Kill the rich.
Kill the leaders. Kill the parents. Kill the cops. Kill the
drummers. Kill the old women.
Kill the idealists. Kill the politicians. Kill me. Kill FM.
Revolution. Revolution.")
S: That's almost a punk song
in attitude. I like the music
very much. It was very straight.
It was with a bass guitar and
with a real guitar. It could have
been a real punk song. The
lyrics had to be very simple
and very straight and so I preferred a real hard attack in my
words.
D: "Touch (I'm Your Bastard)"? ("Touch. Suck. I'm
your bastard, I'm your miserable lover, won'tyou hang on
to me? I'm no great lover, no
great sex artist, sorry. Sie liebt
mich trotzdem. Wie lange
noch? Forever and ever...
Touch. Suck.")
S: "Touch" is a song about
perversion. It's a song about
inferiority; an inferiority
complex. There are a couple
of other songs about an inferiority complex in a relationship between a man and a
woman, when a man feels as
though he's not able to satisfy
the woman in all her wishes.
It's really a feeling of rage and
of inferiority, of impotence.
D: "Me and My Ding Dong?"
5: That's a song about masturbation. The inspiration is
the same as "Touch." It's about
D: "Kunst
und Wahn-
sinn" ("Art
and Madness")?
S: I used to
be really sick
for a couple of years and so it
was really a reaction from my
bed towards people walking
on the streets, singing, without any problems or without
any apparent problems. It's all
my pain and all my anger
•coming out. When I write a
lyric, I don't try to have very
deep meanings. I prefer to use
instinctive reactions. So when
I have these lines in my head,
I write them down and they're
connected to special experiences and so I try to paint a
little picture of my life - maybe
five minutes or maybe a couple
of months. They're meaningful only for that period but
they are very true and reflective of those kinds of feelings.
D: What type of emotions are
you trying to create?
5: Not indifference. The thing
we really try to destroy, to
concern our listeners, are indifferences which is the most
dangerous thing of all. This
and boredom. The best thing
is if people react somehow,
maybe giving us energy or refusing us, but they have to
make a choice. They have to
think a little bit about it. We
try and do it also with our
covers which are always a little
bit aggressive. For instance,
the last one, Gisela, the sweet
little girl with the scar on her
face. So, they really have to
take a position. They have to
say, "Oh, that's terrible!" or
"Why that? It must be interesting" or "I have to know
more about it." So, it's really
a provocation to force people
to work with their brains a
little more than usual.
D: For the Freiheit Fuer Die
Sklaven LP, did you use H.R.
Giger because of the whole
Dead Kennedys' Franken-
christ insert case?
S: No, no, we got his assistance first. We went to Zurich
where Giger lives and wc asked
him for the Biomechanoid
cover. We made friends with
him and made plans to make a
video with him, but we had
some problems with our label
(Contempo Records) for
money. It was quite an expensive production so we will
probably do it this winter.
D: Before flying over, I contacted Contempo Records and
in turn, the label manager faxed
me back saying "Pankow need
people like you to become the
Depeche Mode ofthe future."
S: (laughter) I understand him
because that's his job to make
money for the label, so of course
he's going to use this kind of
expression, but it's not my goal
to become this band.
Pankow release their new Goh
Hotoda mixed 12 " single "Remember Me" this month, followed by a live LP documenting last year's Gisela North
American tour with a;Grumh.
Hotoda is the Japanese producer based in New York who
did mixing for Mode's Violator LP and Madonna's
"Vogue."
Ten free copies of Gisela are
available to interested readers contacting DISCORDER

OCTOBER 1990 19 SUPERCONDUCTOR/LUNG
The Cruel Elephant
Wednesday 29 August
Silly me. Hero I wa* thinking,
"No one will ever be able to hold a
cwdle to KilMoter'i venioii of '1
Am, I Saul'" bul I hadn't reckoned
on the |x>wer of Carl Newman and
company Power fuelled by dry ice
and tempered with wafting clouds of
bubbles. The power of six guitars
and half a dozen dancing girls.
Bul more about that anon. First
we witnessed the somewhat more
understated power of Lung who were,
nevertheless, faster and more obnoxious than their name had prepared
me for. (I mean, you think "Lung,"
you think "breath"; you think "relaxation"; you think "canccr"-oh, never
mind...) A drums, bass 'n' guitar setup
with Semiconductor lason on bass
and vocals, these guys pounded out
some fairly nerve-wracking tunage
reminiscent of JG Ballard stones and
expressway driving. And the audience ate it up. I was lukewarm until
about halfway through their set, when
my ear began to pick out some dam
compelling bass lines in amongst the
carnage. Vox-wise: sorry, I found
picking ANYlhing out a complete
loss, so I can't relate the name of this
one song near the end that had a
totally harsh intro. But trust me, it
did. Speaking of "Intro's"; yes,
heckya. Lung even scaled the heights
of Bad Brains-comparison-worthiness
(I'm trying to put this subtly, so it
won't be like, "Oh yeah. Lung, lhat's
the band that's supposed to sound
like Bad Brains..."). Suffice it to
say, they reminded me of Bad Brains,
they reminded me of Dinosaur, they
reminded me of JG Ballard, and yet
for all that, they didn't come off as
derivative. Or maybe I was just fucked
in the head.
Sure, that'sal ways your excuse,
Viola.
Anyway, back to reality, that
fire-breathing, six-guitar reality that
goes by the name of Superconductor.
But six guitars ain't the half of it.
You also receive: two bass players, a
be-kiltcd drummer, and several tonnes
of hair into the bargain. And hey, on
this particular night, a merciless
helping of kitsch. It couldn't've been
otherwise: this was the
Superconductorian tribute to Neil
Diamond, so we got costume changes,
a bubble machine, dancing wimmin,
and a good hour's worth of Muzak
staples filtered through the Superconductor machine. Surprisingly,
"brevity is the soul of wit" seemed to
be the operative principle here and
few of the masterpieces were
transmogrified into the excess I'd
expected. No, the boys stayed on the
straight V narrow for the most part,
but their "Sweet Caroline" sure exorcised those Grade 6 guitar class
ghosts of mine. And there were departures from convention such as
Carl's enquiry after the abortive
20 DISCORDER
opening bars of one tune,
"OK! Who played the
wrong chord' Who
fucked us up.'!" The
beauty of anonymity: one
fringe benefit of a
supergroup. All face-
tiousness aside though,
Mr. Newman's plaintive
rendition of "Play Me"
nigh moved mc to tears
and the acoustic duet
between him and drummer Keith Parry on
"Crooked Streets" was
pretty touching too. And
weirdly, I DIDrecognizc
all of the songs, even
though before the show
I'd been walking around
like "Well, I dunno; I
won't be able to tell if
they're being faithful to
the originals cause I don' i
really know any Neil
Diamond!" Sure, and I've
never been to
McDonald's either. Scary,
lims   and   highbrows
alike happily satiated.

extent of pop culture saturation is
brought home to you.
As to the dancing girls, well,
they gave it their all but were doomed
from the start. (Mind, the graduate of
the Robert Palmer Dancing-Girl
School less so than the rest.) The

manipulating a glass along the neck

manual mating of their axes; and that
crazy heathen lead singer of theirs
was sprawled full-length on the stage
with his head submerged beneath it...
looking for a lost pick? Lost ponytail
holder? Lost identity?  We'll never
view. But I think it is
safe to say that no matter what feelings one
had on entering the
show, everyone left the
Orpheum three hours
later with big smiles on
their faces and nothing
but compliments for the
group.
The stage was very simple with
DJ Terminator X behind a large black
and yellow Public Enemy logo stuck
in front of the two turntables. Chuck
D appeared dressed in jogging pants.
Raiders jacket and a baseball cap
while Flavor Flav jumped around
wearing a track suit and one of his

The concert was totally hype
with the SlWs showing off some
precise dance moves. As the show

onto the stage along with the band
rather than sequestered upon the
stairway above it. But hey, ya learn
by doing.
By the time the climactic chords
of "Brother Love" were resounding
through the full house, the audience,
Neil Diamonded outta their minds,
were going nuts. A hoary-headed
know.
"...Yeah, well, I'm not too big a
Neil Diamond fan, but I have to say,
they were pretty good..." observed a
fellow concertgoer after the show.
"Or you could say 'SO I have to

was lost on his overinebriated sensibilities. Whatever; Superconductor's

progressed, the crowd became more

on the stage only to be quickly and
abruptly thrown back either by the

fist-pumping throng of fans. The exception: a couple of fans who back-
flipped on top of the crowd.
Chuck D spewed political messages as well as his personal opinion
t issues while Flavor Flav
did his usual crazy dances, speaking
in the style he's mastered to perfection. Flavor, too, had his views on
topics such as staying in school and
loving one's parents. At one point,
he even brought out his two children
who danced around for a little while.

PUBLIC ENEMY
Orpheum Theatre
Thursday 30 August
Apparently, Ice Cube was never
really confirmed as the opening act
and the dirt on the Afros being cancelled was that two of their crew
could not make it across the border.
So instead, Vancouver was treated to
the raves of Whidbey Island EQ and
what the promoter had promised was
to be an "extended" Public Enemy
show to make up for the opening slot
vacancy.
EQ sucked. At best, the performance by Eaze and Quase was tired
and contrived. They staged cute and
rehearsed introductions to
contextualize their songs such as
talking about racial stereotypes at
the 7-Eleven before hitting the beat.
At worst, the group was an embarrassment to choreography which
would not have happened if the several "dancers" accompanying the MCs
and DJs did not try to perform any
moves at all, but they did, and the
audience responded accordingly. Either the dancers were new to the
group and were in dire need of practice, or they were friends of EQ and
this was the only way for them to get
in for free.
Public Enemy arrived amid a
whole new resurgence of massive
hype and controversy, the latest volley of opposition having to do with
PE performing at a civic theatre. So
it came as no surprise to see a paddy
wagon and a few cops hanging around
the Orpheum before the show started.
However, the Orpheum staff was
surprisingly non-confrontational with
the crowd that was noticeably mostly
made up of white-kids-from-
KerrisdaLe-with-the-leather-Jah-
Rastafari-pendant-and-B-K-hightops-
and-Air-Jordan-sweats who had obviously OD'd on Arsenio and Hammer. The obvious exception was the
security. B&th the SlWs and the
Orpheum-hired bouncers were very
liberal with the heavy fist used to
protect the stage from intruders.
Chuck D and Terminator X
kicked off the night with thatfavourite
of favourites "Welcome to the
Terrordome," Chuck introduced
Flavor Flav to the crowd, and for the next hour and a half, back-catalogue
PE hit after back-catalogue PE hit
came pumping forth with aggression
and fervor, punctuated by Chuck and
Flav's frequent diatribes and chants.
These interruptions would not have
been so bad had Chuck not repeated,
among other things, the same peace
spiel over and over, and had Flavor
Flav not done the same call-and-re-
sponse audience reaction chants
throughout the sho w. And what about
Flav's being interrupted by the sudden appearance onstage of a packaged condom? Didn't that condom
Flav so good-humouredly told the
audience came from the audience actually come from his pocket? Was I
not supposed to see this?
Leaving the Orpheum after the
show, watching two testosterone-
overloaded guys go at it in the middle
of rain-slicked Seymour Street, I could
only come up with one thought on
the whole night: shit, I'm old.

MC 900 FT JESUS WITH DJ
ZERO/CONSOLIDATED
Luv-A-Falr
Wednesday 12 September
Consolidated opened the show
with their punkish industrial dance
music, playing tunes from their Myth
of Rock album plus a few newer songs
as well. Their live set <
Adam Sherburne on main mic and
occasional guitar and bass; Mark
"Man-Machine" Pistel on two sampling keyboards and second mic; and
Philip Steir throwing live drums into
the mix. This is the second time they
have played in Vancouver, the first
being June 20. Their set seemed
tighter this time, probably due to the
facts that (a) last time they had the
whole night to themselves, and (b)
they've been touring for the past three
months. There were new parts to the
performance, most notably the addition of some live guitar and bass.
Overall the show was great. Consolidated easily got their messages across,
even fielding questions from the audience regarding band philosophies
while MC 900's stuff was being set
up.
MC 900 Ft Jesus with DJ Zero
have also played here once before.
That enigmatic show happened last
March at Graceland, where they
opened for Severed Heads. I thought
they were cool then with the phenomenal DJ Zero doing the best
scratching I'd ever seen despite
skipping the needle several times. It
was good alternative hip-hop dance
music with very little happening on
stage. Since then MC 900 has developed his stage presence, this time
appearing in a straight-jacket with
holes in the arms enabling the mic to
be held. True to form, DJ Zero spent
most of the time scratching.
Consolidated's PhilipSteir joined
in, augmenting their DAT machine
with live percussion. The most remarkable part of the show began when
all the lights were killed except for
one powerful strobe, and piles of
dry-ice smoke enveloped the stage.
900, still in his straight-jacket, donned
glasses with black and white spiral
disks where the lenses should have
been and walked around the stage
like a zombie, dropping bills from
outstretched arms. At limes I lost
sight of him from my position at ihe
front and then money would fall out
of the smoke cloud onto my head.
The ever prevalent bass was like a
drug. I can't wait for their next album.

Commodore Ballroom
Friday 14 September
The room filled, MuchMusic was
extinguished, and the band moved
onto the stage. Thus began the hip-
pie-fest. Dead shirts and Birkenstocks
abounded among the nouveau-free
spirits.
Crazy Fingers set the floorboards
in motion. Floydian guitar solos
combined with a distinctive blues
beat whipped everyone into a danc
ing frenzy that continued throughout
the performance. Despite being the
opening band, in using such diversions as funky harmonica, Crazy
Fingers kept the attention of the expectant Second Nature fans.'
After a brief interval where we
were once again subjected to Kim
Clark Champniss and his ilk, Second
Nature began their much anticipated
set. At times their funky-psychedelic
sound was reminiscent of the Red
Hot Chili Peppers; at others. The
Doors. A highlight was the band's
appearance in boxer shorts and briefs
while the keyboardist played 2001:
A Space Odyssey. Although some
what deficient in originality and depth.
Second Nature's strong emphasis on
reggae beats, bongo drums, cow bells
and wailing guitar riffs played to the
mood of the audience and kept it
moving. Of course the already euphoric mindstate of much of the audience must be taken into account.
One ecstatic fan even claimed to have
an out of body experience!
As the gig came to a rocking
end, good karma flowed freely from
the tye-dyed-and-sandal-clad crowd
that shuffled herd-like back out to
the seedy bowels of Granville Street.

PEOPLE  WHO  WITNESSED   DJ  SOUND   WAR Boogie Down Productions
Edutainment
(BMG/Jlve/Zomba)
I have never been let down
by KRS One of Boogie Down
Productions. He keeps coming up wilh more and more
interesting information that he
cleverly brings across to his
audience through his music.
There's no stopping this
"teacher." Although the beats
and scratches are fairly basic
and minimalist, the vocabulary and lessons contained in
the songs outweigh the simplicity of the production.
This is not a diss: KRS-
One has managed to produce
yet another jam packed, dope
driving album, speaking his
mind freely with no intentions
of censoring anything. KRS-
One's style varies from
hardcore through to reggae,
containing songs such as "The
Racist," and (the hit) "Love's
Gonna Get Cha (Material
Love)." Ms. Melody, among
others, appears on this album
of never ending future hits.
This man deserves much credit.
Terror T
DVC
Descendant Upheaval
(Manufacture Sound Output)
As my whole life lately
seems dedicated to finding the
world's most intense band, I
should let the world in on one
of my many discoveries. DVC
stands for Darth Vader's
Church but who knows where
they're from. Tennessee,
maybe?
This is the kind of album
frat guys listen to and giggle
in condescension and amazement. Descendant Upheaval
is the absolute heaviest album
I have come across. Sure, it's
kind of like speed-metal, but
it is so relentlessly fast, loud,
and - and - HEAVY. The
singer snarls and rants underneath a wall of G-U-I-T-A-R-
S. DVC, as a selling point, are
so-o-o-o-o heavy, get this, I
can't even read half the song
titles because they are written
in cool Gothic script on the
back cover. Here's the few
titles I did manage to decipher
(as if you haven't bought the
album yet): "Moral Constrictor," "Devouring Volvulous
Corpse," and the ever-popular "Embalmed in Stone."
Fuckin' h-e-e-e-a-a-v-v-
bloodspattered naked woman
accompanied by a likewise
bloody, naked dwarf engaged
in fucking a stuffed bunny,
indicates what is in store when
the stylus hits the groove.
This San Francisco based
band doesn't waste any time,
the entire record being no more
than twenty minutes in length.
They spend this time singing
about sexual prowess and
similar topics on songs such
as "Skin Poppin' Slut," "Let's
Fuck," "Fuck You Up and Get
High," and "Insect Whore."
If the PMRC and law officials are pissed off about The
2 Live Crew, Blood Guts and
Pussy should make them homicidal and no doubt feminists will be antagoized by
some of the themes the
Dwarves have decided to sing
about. This is "in your face"
rock with lots of denigration
to boot.

Jane's Addiction
Ritual De Lo Habitual
(WEA)
As many artists have
learned, controversy provides
a great launching pad for the
commercial success of their
material. Jane's "Addiction
utilised this fact when creating their new album cover,
which has been banned in
Canada by the CRTC. Now it
is just a plain white cover with
a quote from Article One of
the US Constitution. I wondered if Jane's Addiction was
relying on controversy to sell
their albums. If so, why?
Couldn't their tunes alone cut
it anymore?
Far from it.
Ritual De Lo Habitual is
a strong new album with music and lyrics complementing
the other. The first side is aggressive with a repertoire of
styles that range from the heavy
yet funky "Stop" to the slower-
paced, relaxed power of "Obvious." The best song on the
first side, "Obvious" has Jane's
Addiction written all over it.
What other band can have
spurts of distortion coming
from both the guitar amp as
well as the jaws ofthe vocalist, yet remain equal in feeling
and integrity?
The second side boasts a
much more structured and patience-minded Jane's Addiction. In particular is 'Three
Days," strengthened by David
Navarro's antics with guitar
effects, the surprising success
of Perry Farrell's gruff voice
in the more tender moments
of the song, and a killer bass
line by Eric A. The result is
the most impressive song on
the album.
Unfortunately, Farrell's
voice goes out of whack and
sounds overbearing on some
cuts. For some reason 'Then
She Did" just doesn't accept
his vocal style. Versatility is
not a quality he considers important enough, obviously.
The only other point worth
mentioning is the disappointing closing song, "Classic
Girl." It is the second song on
the album with a heavy. Led
Zeppelin feel to it. I have always been critical of typical
portrayals of women in such
songs and although there is
something more substantial
being said, the point of the
song is too fuzzy to figure out
what it is. To place such a
weak song as the finale of the
album prevents me from calling Ritual De Lo Habitual an
excellent effort. Nevertheless
it stands as an album to pick
up without question as its strong
points outweigh the weak ones.
Braden Zrno
(Actually, Jane's Addiction and their American label
Warner Bros, released the
"censored" cover for the album in response to protests by
American moralists. The
original cover is a collage
featuring paper mache representations of Perry Farrell
nude with two likewise nude
women; the "revised" cover is
completely bare save for the
aforementioned quote. Apparently the decision to distribute the latter cover in
Canada over the original was
made by WEA Canada. - ed.)
Lead into Gold
Age of Reason
(Cargo/Wax Trax)
Paul Barker is the less
mouthy and therefore the lesser
known half of Ministry but he
gets to step into the limelight
(blacklight?) with Age of
Reason, his first solo album.
While listening to it, I realized how much Barker does
contribute to the unholy duo
of Ministry/Revolting Cocks.
This is an ink black effort, but
the lyrics are more interesting
than some industrial groanings;
"Lunalic/Genius" deals with
the thin line betwixt the two:
"What will the rush of ideas/
Eclipsing all others/Mean to
the core."
Age of Reason is relentless: heavily synthesized tortured sounds plus bone-
crunching guitar Al
Jourgensen manages to sneak
in, having helped write one
song. If you're in a depressed
state. Lead into Gold might
not be the besl thing to cheer
you up but you could probably dance to some ofthe tracks
while you're planning a mass
murder spree.
June Scudeler
Muslimgauze
Intifaxa
(Extreme Music)
The
Paul Schutze
Deus Ex Machina
Soundtrack
(Extreme Music)
Reviewing nev
and contemporary classical
releases these days is, at best,
a game of hit-and-miss. Home
computers and digital samplers
have put music in the hands of
some who seem completely
unsuited to composing it, preferring the comforting - but
ultimately sterile - accessibility of machine-generated
rhythms and melodies.
However, despite the
presence of new releases lhat
come off sounding like a high
school computer science project (e.g., the Music Society,
new Carl Stone), there are a
number of excellent electronic
works currently available
which will no doubt be overlooked by many. Two of these
come on compact disc from
Extreme Music, an Australian
label.
Muslimgauze's Intifaxa
builds its rhythms from drums
which sound remarkably like
those on Peter Gabriel's
"Rhythm of the Heat." Pulsing bells and soft, chiming
cymbals are laid down over
the drums in overlapping patterns which slowly fall in and
out of synch with one another.
The overall sound is cold and
clear: visualise it echoing in a
concrete bunker washed with
winter sunlight. At its worst,
the music seems patternless:
drum Muzak. At its best, (ie,
"P.F.L.P.") it is chillingly
hypnotic. Clive Barker's
Cenobites would love it.
Paul Schutze's Deus Ex
Machina: The Soundtrack
comes with liner notes that
read like an MA thesis.
Schutze's aim is to inject randomly sampled sounds into a
constantly shifting electronic
rhythm, distancing listeners
from the sounds' usual contexts. One striking passage sets
a car crash against footsteps
and a confused babble of Ital
ian voices. The basic technique
is nothing new: Burroughs and
Cage have been playing with
decontextualisation for years.
However, Schutze's execution
is superb: the fifty-nine minute
piece fluctuates between ambient "noise" and rhythmic
progression, electronic sounds
and organic samples. Highly
recommended.
Chris Brayshaw
Pantera
Cowboys From Hell
(BMG/Arista)
Metallica clones with really long hair and really boss
tattoos. That's about it. No,
seriously, that's all. Just guys
with long hair and guitar solos, and they thank their in
struments. Next, please.
Gav
Steel Pole Bath Tub
Lurch
(Boner)
Scribbled in pen on the
back of this album is the notation "real hair shaking music." Steel Pole Bath Tub is a
band I know very little about,
except that they are supposedly a three-piece that used to
be an REM cover band. Nonetheless, they are one of the
heaviest bands around. Lurch
is a five-song mini album featuring some of the best grunge,
noise and distortion this side
of Sub Pop Land. "Christina,"
the opening song, ends with a
full two minutes of feedback!
After an albumful of primal
two- and/or three-chord
trudging. Lurch is even capped
off with a mind-numbing,
fuzzed-out version of "Paranoid" from the world's greatest band, Black Sabbath. Never
before has such squeaking,
squawking, pounding and
screaming sounded so darn
good.
Mikey
Untamed Youth
More Real Gone Gassers
from...
(Norton)
This second album from
Columbia, Missouri's
Untamed Youth was a real
pleasure to listen to. Nothing
really complex here, just a real
fun record with plenty of cool
surf guitar riffs with lots of
"ooowah ooowah" Beach
Boysish melodies. Quite a few
of the songs are covers but
this is hardly noticeable as they
come from very obscure bands.
More Real Gone Gassers
from... turned out so good that
it makes me curious about their
first album....

24 HR. SHOW INFO: 681-1732 Well, it's getting nigh on
toward winter and those wet,
chill evenings when y'all'll
be seeking some gut-wrench-
ing-I mean, warming-sustenance, so I thought I'd dwell
on the topic of sandwiches.
Yes, sandwiches: the staff of
life. I'm not talking wimpy
lame-ass shit sandwiches like
the kind ya can get Cry-O-
Vacced in cafeterias, I'm
talking real, honest-to-good-
ness, fix-'em-at-home-in-the-
comfort-of-your-own-kitchen
sandwiches. (Oh no, I'm using hyphenated descriptive
phrases; the James Barber curse
has struck...)
That old standby, peanut
butter, merits initial mention
as Sandwich Purists' firstpick.
Man, you can't do better than
a plain ol' peanut butter on
Safeway white or 60% whole
wheat sliccd-unsliced, to tide
you through whatever emotional/digestive/psycho-social
crises you may be faced with
(and believe me, I get a LOT
ofthe latter). Comfort food at
its best.
Then there's the
one-step-removed-
from-peanut-butter
depravity of peanut
butter and HONEY
sandwiches; you
gotta wonder sometimes, what is this
world coming to?
My brother and my
roommate both
swear by 'em, but
for me they conjure
up bad memories of
lean times of the
month in my childhood and the distressing prospect of
whitish gunk woven
into the peanut butter jar. Okay, I'll
admit, taste-wise
they're decent, especially on toast,
something I'd wanni
with on a regular basis. Actually, now I think of it, I wouldn't
be surprised but that peanut
butter 'n' honey is like,
Canada's answer to good ol'
American peanut butter 'n'
jelly. Think about it: honey is
just so smooth, so bland, so
generally Brian Mulroncy-like
in comparison to "jelly"-hey,
I think there's a real case to be
made for this. Eh?
But I'd better be careful
here; they say not to discuss
politics at the dinner table. Save
it for Joe's. One of the best
sandwiches I've ever had in
my life was a plain V simple
lettuce one ("A Honeymoon
sandwich: lettuce alone," as
my mother would say). This
was during a childhood summer when I was staying with
friends who live in East Van,
and the Italian woman next
door donated from her garden
the most amazing, mongo head
of leaf lettuce. My Auntie Merle
(yup, her again; she's not even
really my real aunt) did this
foliage supreme justice by
laying it reverently between
Miracle Whipped slices of
white bread and letting us kids
me. When I returned home I
started pestering my mother
to buy Miracle Whip, bul I've
never even presumed to at-
mates, who're dead 'n' gone
to India (bless their digestive
tracts), had some nifty sandwich ideas up their sleeves
any kind of bread; spread butter, cream cheese, or mayonnaise, whatever your pleasure;
throw on sliced tomatoes; and
sprinkle a few "dash orcgar.o"s
on top a them. Cover it up
with the second piece of toast,
et voila: sandwich beauty.
Carla's specially was the
slightly more labour-intensive
Grilled Cheese. But not just
any old Grilled Cheese; no.
Grilled Cheese With Curry.
Regular, sweel, Madras; any
kind of curry works like a
charm. You just make the
sandwich as per usual, but
before sticking it under the
grill, throw a bit of (or a lot of;
whatever) curry over the
cheese. Four minutes later
you're in Grilled Cheese
heaven. I've found the taste is
really complemented by
Miracle Whip, rather than
butter or marge, on the bread.
So there ya go.
Ah, and now on to the
Queen of Sandwiches: Syrup
and Cheese. When first intro
duced to this toothsome dcli-
but not
be faced
feast. Having been raised on
mayonnaise and store-bought
head lettuce to that point in
time, these leaf lettuce sandwiches verged on nirvana for
tempt to recreate this bliss on
my own, lacking access to
freshly-picked lettuce. But I
have my memories!
My  two former room-
too. Julie's inspiration for one cacy by a South African friend,
actually came via her dad, I too declined in revulsion at
whose brainchild was the to- the concept of combining syrup
mato'n'oreganosan'. All you and cheese in such a lascivi-
do is make toast, two slices of ous manner. So indeed have
all the guests I've ever offered
it to. But all of us, mc in particular, have gone on to gingerly sample this depraved in
vention and, afler a few bites,
quickly become converts.
Traditionally ihis sandwich is
made on rye and eaten wilh
Hot Mix Bic's; but it works
equally well on the Safeway
sliced-unsliced white or brown,
or indeed any bread that's
handy. Shred a heap o' died
dar; butter two slices of loasi
and spread 'em wilh Roger's
Golden lhat you've bought for
peanuts in the handy stainless
steel vais al Save-On; layer on
the shredded cheese; throw on
your top slice and experience
what God meant food to be. A
warning though: this is one
sandwich lhat fairly demands
a good hot pot of tea lo be
drunk with it. Give me a syrup
'n' cheese sandwich and a pot
of Earl Grey, and I'm gone.
Yes, there lies a true sense
ol accomplishment and com
fort in fixing your sanmes in
the  aforementioned  eonvc-
digs, but I cannot
let acolumn devoted
to sandwiches go by
without lauding one
eatworthy commercially-produced offering. Namely,
White Spot's
shrimp sandwiches.
Oh, yeah, they
probably have some
fancy, high-falutin'
name for 'em wilh
the word "delight"
in it, but there's
only one incarnation of it and it's
easy enough to spot
on the menu. Better on brown than
white and crowned
with shredded lettuce and a groovy
chili sauce, accompanied by
White Spot french fries-a
plateful to be reckoned with.
Eat, smack yer lips, and be

r (- Virr>" J "5 r«w_n ru l^ast month The Picasso Set signed
on a second guitarist, John
Brolhcrton, who used lo sing for
the under-appreciated Cannon
Heath Down. Bui ihey will also
continue iheir search for someone
(male or female) to replace
Jonathan, iheir recently departed
keyboard playcr/vocalist-I suspect
that ^nyone interested can reach
Pat at CITR from 7-9 on Thursday
nights, during his show. In the
meantime, expect some new songs
and a somewhat new sound from
'Ihc Picasso Set.
Another recent departure: Blair Dobson has left Numb
and is starling up another project,
Judas Bullhorn, with Darrell
Shibley (of Oversoul 7 fame) on
drams.
Tin God-"Miles to Sunrise",
"Hazy Moon." The besl of this
month' s tapes have something very
basic in common: they are loud,
and these most recent Tin God
offerings (from a 6-song demo
recorded at Profile), while without question the most pensive songs
of the lot, aren't lacking in vol
ume. As always, Doug Andrews
and Mike Graham (at the moment,
after three and a half years, the
band's only members) write exceptional songs, difficult lodefine.
Each song is comprised of a sharply
contrasting verse and chorus-
"Miles to Sunrise" has Doug talking
almost C&W style through the
verses, then the instruments come
crashing in on the refrain-and odd
mixtures of hard and soft,
thoughtful-sounding elements.
Then, while the lyrics are pensive, introspective, for the most
part evocative sccnc-pauiting, there
are those guitars and drums. Although they are for the moment
without a rhythm section, I'm sure
the resilient Tin God will be back
in the clubs very soon. It's not
their nature to be just a studio
Rocket 88-"Gimme Some Action." These former members of
Sissy Boys, Death Sentence, Stage
Door Janes and lots more have
lightened up in altitude (for once,
a press kit worth reading and
keeping) but not in volume.   De
scribing themselves (just slightly
tongue-in-check) as having "rock-
solid musical reputations, charming
personalities and dashing good
looks," Rocket 88 reminds me of
early Scramblers with a few more
recent influences. (In fact bassist
Jim Sigmund is look-alike brother
lo Ziggy, who plays blurry-handed
guitar with Howard and John and
Randy and Ron, and used to be
part of Slow.) I^ouie "Mike" Louie,
Lazy Joe Di Amante, Marc Manhattan and Jimmy (who say "no
thanks" to the guy that played one
of the guitar solos) sound so bad,
so loud, so rock and roll (in a style
I vaguely remember from renegade
babysitters in iheearly-lo-mid '70s)
that I can't resist them. This is
tight, hard, fast, with no pompous
or offensive lyrics or noodling.
Classic rock, in the best sense of
the phrase.   I can hardly wait to
NoiseFloor-"Too Much Negativity." Amazingly, this young
band from Waterloo, Ontario recorded their demo live onto two
tracks in one day, last Christmas
Eve, in fact. The mix is great, the
sound is full (with three guitars,
they' ve slopped jusl short of local
superheroes-of-a-sorl Superconductor), all the musicians slow
down and speed up and play louder
and softer at the same lime, and
there is an impressive false ending. I gave up trying to list who
they sounded like after Sonic
Youth, The Butthole Surfers, Black
Sabbath, Bauhaus, The 13th Floor
Elevators and the first two Pink
Floyd LPs-let me just say that
bands like this could (and should)
bring lying-around-sloned-and-
listening-to-records-with-three-
songs-on-each-side-parties roaring back inlo fashion. Lots of
noise and power performed by
good musicians and (rare for this
kind of thing) a good singer. Impressive.
Baron Von Fokker-"Beads of

an immediate negative image of
this band from the name, and when
I walked into CITR and saw them

they have a cellist), I was pleasantly
surprised. Baron Von Eokkerdocs
indeed play loud music without
the familiar structure of rock and
roll, bul this is far from formless.
These songs have so many
ngourously controlled, difficult
parts I almost want to classify
them as hard jazz, or hard classical, but those definitions arc as far
off the mark as any others I've
thought of. While "Beads of Cholesterol" doesn't show off the
band's vocals or (my favourite
element-a surprising and effective addition) cello, it's a good
introduction. Like the other bands
in this month's column. Baron
Von Fokker deserves to be a lot
more famous lhan they arc.
Ripcordz-"Over You." Not really a demo lape, A Right is a
Right is a 6-song "cassette EP"
from these Montrcalers (with one
record out on Deja Voodoo's Og
label). "Over You" is a lovely
punk-pop song, perfectly timed al
less than two and a half minutes,
less serious than most of the tape
and lacked onto the end of the
second side almost like an afterthought. The words arc spat oul
angrily and almost loo fasl tomakc
out, bul then there are these sweel
female backing vocals (you can
almost picture the singers as young
girls in gold lame dresses).
Slammable,yetfun,fun,fun. This
is a hard, almost sweet gem, and
not completely unlike the other
songs on the EP (how can you not
like a song called "Checz Mewl"?).
Worth buying if the tapes ever
show up in the stores.

CONT'D FROM PAGE 11
D: Casa Loma's like your rich
uncle's house that you never
want to go to who's always
inviting you over for Christmas jusl to show off the place.
N: Is it the coolest place in
Toronto to hang out in?
N: But it's a big castle.
D: No, it's a "casa." It's a fake
castle. It's like the chocolatey
coating on cookies. It's not
chocolate. It's a "casa," not a
castle.
N: What is the coolest place?
D: I don't know. I hang out at
my home a lot.
N: Have you ever played the
Railway Club before?
D: Oh yeah, that's why we're
coming back, because we like
the Railway Club.
N:B
t's small.
D: Because it's small and it
has the nice little train that
goes around.
28 DISCORDER
N: Because you've bumped
into stars before.
D: No, we're playing at the
Railway Club because we
bumped into stars at the olher
place, what's it called, the
Town Dump.
N: The Town Pump, yes. What
stars did you bump into there
that you won't bump into at
the Railway.
D: Bryan Adams.
N: You really bumped into
Bryan Adams?
D: No, but I saw him there on
Much Music once.
N: Who is Don Pyle of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet,
the greatest Canadian ever?
D: I thought you said Sir Isaac
Brock was the greatest Canadian ever.
D: Oh I get it, he's the greatest
Canadian to lose his head.
N: Who is the greatest Canadian ever?
D: Ken Priestley. He's a friend
of ours. He's a graphic artist.
He's a part-owner of a record
store in Bowmanville. He was
our singer when we first
started.
N: Bowmanville is the home
of World Records.
if we knew any Charlie Pride.
We said no, but we know
George Jones.
N: And you played...
D: ...none of those.
N: And then you cut ir
brand new tune...
Although Ken 1:
manville he has absolutely
nothing to do with the band at
all now, although we did play
at his record store a few weeks
ago.
.."Baby Elephant Walk."
Which will be coming oul
,..K Records.
N: And you had lots of people      N: And it will be a great...
dancing.
D: This is just like one of
D: Yeah, on the street. And those lazy person's greeting
the police came by and asked      cards.
N: It will be a great record
because il wasn't pressed at...
N: ...Records.
D: Well that's not the only
reason. It'll be a good record.
It has four songs and a skit as
the engineer who worked on it
said.
N: Who are the other hot non-
wordless groups in Toronto.
D: Non-wordless? You did a
double-negative there, you
threw me off. You mean, who
do I like or who are the most
popular?
N: Well you mentioned The
Pursuit of Happiness and the
Corndogs and...
D: I never mentioned the
Corndogs.
N: Well you wanted to mention the Corndogs.
D: No I didn't.
N: Because they are your
favourite band.
D: I don't even dream about
the Corndogs.
N: Your favourite band is the
Corndogs. You'd love to get
ahold of their super-duper mic
that was used to record their
album.
D: I would say my favourite
band right now in town is
Change of Heart.
N: Why? Because they are on
Cargo Records?
D: No, as a matter of fact that
was totally coincidental. There
is another group in town called
Scott B. Sympathy who are
really great who almost put
oul an album on Cargo and it
was just coincidence and that
was one reason why we said
Cargo is a pretty great label to
go with because two of our
favourite bands in town are
going to be putting out records
with them.
N: And you like the Asexuals
and Ray Condo, too, probably.
D: I like Ray Condo very much.
N: Because they're on Cargo
Records too.
D: No. We've known Ray
Condo for a very long time.
N: Thanks, Donny, and keep
on rocking in the free world. -JS__^£* ;?■*

SEPTEMBER 1990 3: One lazy Sunday afternoon I found myself with not too much to do. It was very warm. My
mother was making some tea. Tea is supposed to cool down your body when it is warm.
Wouldn't it be strange (I thought to myself) if she put some kind of drug in it? I heard that
happened once to a boy in Venezuela. But he wasn't drinking tea. His mother had simply had
enough of the boy's constant nattering and wanted to sell him to the local mafiosos. All Chiro
did was play with his parrot "Pedro." He had won the bird at his school's annual bingo tournament and was very proud of it. Chiro's friends were jealous of him because they didn't like
him very much and thought him too pathetic to enjoy a fine parrot like "Pedro." When Chiro
awoke from his d_Jep sleep he was on the flat open car of a train with many other sleepy
boys his age.
"Where am I?" screamed Chiro into the passing landscape of a country he did not recognize. "Have I been drugged? Where is Pedro?"
"Here I am," said a little voice from across the car.
"You are not Pedro! You do not have pure white feathers with light green under your
wings! Oh what a cruel, cruel dream. What a strange place with many strange people. Who
are you?"
"I am many things my friend. And I have been many places. I am a boy who is always
looking but never finding. My family is dead and I, Pedro, must go on searching and questioning until someday I have the answers."
The two boys stared at each other as the train charged towards the plantation. Then a
smile came across Chiro's wind-beaten face. "You have fine plumage, my friend." Perryscope Concerts Present
