Discorder is That Magazine from CiTR Radio
102 and is published monthly by the Student Radio
Society of the University of British Columbia, although it winds up being printed deep from within
Surrey, Canada.
Discorder Magazine prints what it wants to, but
pledges to put the CITR On The Dial program schedule and SpinList record chart in every issue. Discorder also vows to circulate 17,500 copies by the
first of each month. Subscriptions are encouraged.
Twelve issues: $12 in Canada, $12(US) in the
States, $18 elsewhere. Make money orders or
certified cheques payable to CITR Publications'.
CITR Radio 102 broadcasts a 49-watt stereo signal throughout the Vancouver area at 101.9 FM.,
But for best reception, hook up to the FM cable network. CITR is at 101.9 cable FM on Rogers (Lower
Mainland) and Shaw (North Shore) cable systems,
but is still at 100.1 on Rogers (Fraser Valley).
Inquiries about CITR, Discorder or the Mobile

together, the vibe was better, stronger, purer seven
years ago in the Commodore when it was just 1000
(and U2 were not a better band then). Face it, for three
quarters of the BC Place crowd, they could easily have
been a bunch of actors doing a Beatlemania-style
tribute. So who s to blame? U2? They're just trying
to satisfy the overwhelming demand and not spend the
rest of their lives on tour. How about the rock'n'roll biz
in general? How is it that one band gets so HUGE? I
mean, U2 are good, but not that good. Personally, I put
them in the same general category as The Waterboys
who probably couldn't even sell out the Commodore.
For what it's worth, I liked Prince's movie better.
Nobody elbowed me in the head, nobody shouted at me
with a megaphone, I didn t need a special plastic wrist
band to get in, and it cost something like one-tenth as
much for better sound and a front row seat. (Bill
Mullan)
NAIVETE IS BLISS
**e fou zesis
I DISAGREE!
Airhead,
This is like ancient history by now, but I
wonder where Bill Mullan gets off writing about the
U2 concert in your year-end wrap-up: "Don't believe
the deluded ravings of those who fought so hard,
believed so fervently, paid so much that it had to be the
concert of the year. More like the scam of the year.
Certainly the disappointment." In his view. Personally, I didn't fight very hard (was sitting around by a
radio when I heard they put the extra 5000 tickets on
sale a few days before the show), didn't believe so
fervently (I'd seen them twice before and knew they
were real breathing fallible human beings), and didn't
pay so much (only the price of a couple of club gigs)
In fact, I went with no particular expectations, found a
pretty decent place on the floor, and had a great time.
In fact, totally subjectively, I'd put it in my all-time
Top Five, and definitely the concert of the year.
Though I didn't check out many of those thrash bands
that you guys are constantly genuflecting before.
And no, I wasn't stoned. Well, maybe a little smoke,
but not until far enough into the set that I knew I was
enjoying myself without it.
As for the venue ... the sound is a bit of a
drag, but it was fun to be in the presence of 57,000
going ape, even if they were mostly "deluded ravers".
And if they'd played the Coliseum, they wouldn't have
been able to cram 5000 more people in at the last
minute, and I would have missed out.
Love the magazine by the way.
J.N.
Don't get me wrong. I very much like U2 's music, and
not just 'the old stuff. I'd go so far as to say "Joshua
Tree" is one of my two or three favorite albums ofl 987.
The problem lies with their overwhelming popularity.
They're too big not just for their own good, but for
everyone's. Having also seen them twice before in
smaller venues, I can vouch for the extraordinary kind
of magic they can sustain in a live situation. In BC
Place, I caught glimpses of it but overall, sorry, I had
to shake my head and say, no way! Say what you want
about 57,000 people (the city ofKamloops) going ape
4 DISCORDER
Airhead,
If I asked you,
Would you die to save the world,
When the world includes those you love,
And you said you would,
So I think to myself,
The same must hold true for Mikhail and
Ron,
Certainly they too could not destroy,
Everyone they've loved, and everything
they've done,
But then I realize,
In the midst of my fit of naivety,
That they can both go undergound,
And stay alive anyway.
Behavahinskl
OR IS IT ANOTHER RED HERRING?
Dear Airhead,
What is all this nonsense about "Where is
Wombat?"   I've been reading Discorder faithfully
since the end of the war and I've never seen any
reference to any Wombat or, for that matter, any other   Airhead,
example of Australian wildlife.   Is this another of
those bogus publicity campaigns designed to increase
circulation by making readers nostalgic for something
that never existed in the first place? Come on. What
kind of naive sheep-like peons do you take us for? I'll
bet you even write your own letters. Now knock it off
or I'll tell your father. Get serious and start uncovering some real mysteries, like who really killed Janet
Smith?
Was it the Chinese houseboy, like the police said, orwas it the wife of the son of the Lieutenant-
Governor who found them in bed together at the
infamous wild party at the home of the Red Baron's
30th victim, and bashed her in the head with a chamberpot and then took her down into the laundry room
and put a bullet into her already dead head to make it
look like a gun cleaning accident, like everyone else
said? Or did she really just shoot herself like the
brother of the Red Baron's 30th victim, who was
living in the house at the time and who threw the infamous wild party that he said never happened because he was so tired from playing tennis that afternoon that he went to bed early that night and no one
came over so there really couldn't have been a party,
could there? And besides, all the people who were
supposed to be there all said they were out of town that
weekend. So, if all that was true, why did the Attorney-General pay the detectives to keep the Chinaman
in hiding to cover the whole thing up? Really.
It was Colonel Mustard.
AN ANGRY YOUNG MAN
Dearest Darling Airhead,
Mike isn't *bad', he's BAD! Vanna is an
incurable glop of filth - - and Whitney should be
gutted like a trout, cleaned with solvent and fed to
infected newts, her purulent corpse left to decay in the
hellish pastel depths of the staff washroom at GOOD
ROCKIN'TONITE!!! YARGII! YECH! May Mojo
and Skid accost Stu Jeffries, the pungent worm and
violently extract his offensive frontal incisors.

THEY LIKE US!
I think Discorder is getting better. Espe- daily the last few issues . ..
I think you're magazine makes a refreshing change from all the usual bullshit we're fed
through all the media .. .
I must say I got quite a kick out of the
"Religion" edition of your publication especially the
review of the Pontiff live. Upon showing my copy of
Discorder to my friends, one of them expressed a
desire for a subscription ...
Thanks so much for the wonderful envelope and the January Discorder issue! Without going
into detail, I was in a much better mood after receiving
the above and I enjoyed reading Matt Richards' "A
Christmas Story" and Dave Campbell's "What kind
of year did you have?" Well, I didn't enjoy Matt's
story, but I did like it...

See? People do compliment us on occasion. Discorder always welcomes praise, though it prefers money.

FEBRUARY, MONTH OF TRUE LOVE AND
celebrated bloody murder. Needless to say, there's
always a good excuse for a decent concert and this
particular month appears to be supplying more than
its share. CITR, of course, is concerned and deeply
involved.
The fun begins Sunday, the 7* at '86 Street with the
return of Georgia's Guadalcanal Diary. Word is,
they blew REM off the stage a year or so ago at the
War Memorial Gym. Does that make them the best
American Rock 'n Roll ban of our day? Probably
not. Three days later (the 10*), the original
Wallers bring their tribute to the great Bob
(Marley) to '86 Street. Toke with care, if you must,
they don't take kindly to it there. That Friday, (the
12*), Art Bergman's out here at UBCin the SUB
(Student Union Building) Ballroom, with guests
The Scramblers. Then DOA and Bolero Lava
take us full circle to the '86 Street again on Sunday
night (the 14*). Yes, its a Valentine's Day bash,
but are they celebrating love or ultra-violence? Is
there a difference?
Finally, the fun shifts to Graceland Wednesday
night (the 17*) for the return of Tackhead. What's
a tackhead, you might ask? Well, its three very in-
demand musicians - - Keith   Leblanc (Drums),
Doug Wimbish (Bass), Skip McDonald (everything else) - - and two of their friends (Gary Clail
and Adrian Sherwood). Expect an evening of
mutant-hip-hop-heavy-metal (or something like
that). Hopefully (!!!!!!) Mr. Sherwood will be out
here in the studios for a live on-air mix. But
remember, home taping is killing is music.
Who said February's a short month?

WHAT   DOES   THIS   KEAN   TO   YOU ?
Woman HI: It doesn't mean a great deal to me. It
could be a symbol for a company that sells... A-
frame ski lodges... 'A' for apple?
Esther: Not 'A' for anarchy?
Woman HI: A for anarchy?... no. I think it's totally
inappropiate. This is too neat. It's complete. It's
very organized. Straight lines. The circle looks a bit
wonky but its still a circle. I think for anarchy you
want to have a whole lot of loose lines going in
every direction.
Man #2: It looks like a cattle brand to me...
CIRCLE-A-Ranch.
Man #2: It looks like an 'A' with a circle around it.
It's not that impressive. What are you trying to do,
create a logo or somethin'?
Woman 82: Vmnot for anarchy. I think its chaotic.
It doesn't have any kind of democratic principles.
Anarchy is when people do what they feel like
whenever they feel like it. People have all kinds of
uncontrolled impulses... and interests, you know...
that aren't necessarily thought out or even
understood by tne people themselves. And I don't
think that others have a right to impose their way
on everybody else. You know we need to respect
the views and rights of those around us. That's why
I'm against anarchy.

Woman #3: For me, this is like a sphynx, a
pyramid. Sometimes, if you are helpless, you can't
cope physically even though mentally, you are still
functioning. No matter how helpless people are,
they still have a dream or a fantasy in themselves.
It's just because of their physical inability and their
disabilities that they can't just go out and show
what they have in their minds.

Compiled by Esther Hadley
Wilson: To the best of my knowledge,
having read history back and forth for four
decades, no ruling elite has ever encouraged
the pluralist paradigm. All power structures try to brainwash everybody into a
single tunnel-reality, with State education,
Holy Inquisitions, FBIs, Gestapos, Drug
Administrations, etc., and anybody who
questions that tunnel-reality gets the hemlock (Socrates, 4th century B.C.), burning
at the stake (Bruno, 17th century), the
bottom cell in the basement at Folsom
(Leary, 1973), or some similar discouragement. "Communication is only possible
between equals" as Hagbard Celine and I
keep telling people, and no ruling elite is
ready, willing, or able to receive dissenting
signals from independents or mavericks.
Once you accept a pluralist universe, you
are logically compelled to accept a pluralist
society—i.e., a decentralized, libertarian,
or outright anarchist society—and no ruling class can accept that idea.
Man #3: It looks more like a symbol for Ist class or
something like that... A-l?
Esther: What is your view of anarchy?
Man #3: Anarchy? I don't know. If you're very
young you believe in anarchy... after you reach a
certain age, you don't see it the same way.
Man #4: From what I understand, m'am, that
symbol means 'anarchy'. I think very little of anarchy on the whole, but when I think of it, I think it's
philosophically a fine idea. Practically, it's tricky.
Esther: How would you go about bringing anarchy
into the world?
Man #4:1 would start with disarray...well... get
very ragged, get very rough...no! I wouldn't say
that... I have no actual plan for bringing anarchy
into the world other than just general lapse.
Man #5: It means the beginning because MA" is the
first letter of the alphabet.

Victims: Guidelines and Characteristics
A victim sounds like this: "Poor
me! Why is it always me? Life is unfair! I
never get what I want... waaah!"
It's heard all the time, everywhere.
It's quite popular and even acceptable to be,
and remain, a victim. But being actively
involved in this complex form of self-abuse is
not to be taken lightly. It takes a lot of
determination and dedication to maintain a
certain level of whining and blaming.
One must also tolerate sympathy,
convince all at large that one is most certainly
to be pitied. One's excuse can be fabricated or
authentic - - it depends on one's level of
awareness and willingness to play the game.
One can include as part of the cause other
members of society, children, whatever works.
Self-victimization is a way of life
and a fulltime j b. One must never let on that
one is quite capable of managing alone.
There are certain drawbacks
however that one must also deal with. One
may suddenly feel resentment that one's
happiness depends almost entirely upon the
amount of attention one receives from others;
apathy could take over, guilt has a way of
getting in there as well.
Things just couldn't get worse!

::;.:m:-y:'^ Its announcers work under assumed names,
its locations are a well-kept secret and
listeners caught "tuning in" endanger their
lives. A typical one-hour broadcast will
include several interruptions. At a moment's
notice, the operators may have to uproot themselves and equipment to locate to a safer broadcasting "studio". If electronic air surveillance fails to
uncover their location, highly sophisticated
communications apparatus will have succeeded in
"jamming" their frequency.
This is clandestine radio in El Salvador.
From the trenches of the war fronts to a peasants'
demonstration on a coffee plantation, Radio
Farabundo Marti and Radio Venceremos transmit
the day's events to the Salvadoran people. The two
rebel stations were established by the Farabundo
Marti National Liberation Front (FMLN), the
political-military opposition in El Salvador's
ongoing seven-year civil war. In the early 1980s,
the state of seige declared by the Jose Napolean
Duarte government effectively silenced all
opposition media. News reports concerning the
state of war or references to the FMLN as anything
but "a group of terrorists" were outlawed. The
government's information blockade permitted only
the "official" version of news to reach Salvadorans.
With local press virtually "gagged" at
gunpoint and the military unwilling to part with
information, rebel radio has become an indispensable source for military reports. Recognized for
their accuracy, the radio's war correspondents
(often reporting directly from the line of fire) are
extensively quoted by intematinal news agencies
(UPI, ANSA, LATIN REUTER, etc).
Breaking the silence, Radios Farabundo
Marti and Venceremos have united all sectors of
Salvadoran society. From the small businessman to
the peasant, people all over the country turn to the
radios as a legitimate source of information and
education. In addition to international and regional
news, each broadcast includes cultural programs.
Health and literacy advances made through FMLN
campaigns are reported. Instructional programs are
invaluable to those living in El Salvador's war
zones. The stations' teachings on the construction
of make-shift bomb shelters have literally saved
thousands of lives during government air attacks.
£A£i0
Salvadoran cultural values, overwhelmed by years of U.S. domination, have been
restored through rebel radio. The new Salvadoran
folk music created by fusing the traditional musical
instruments and rythms with revolutionary lyrics,
instills a new sense of national pride and dignity in
the listener.
Radios Farabundo Marti and Venceremos are not limited to radio transmissions inside El
Salvador. The courageous spirit of the Salvadoran
people who face war's destruction and inhumanity
daily is captured on film for both local and
international audiences. Radio Farabundo Marti
also produces weekly and monthly news summaries for world-wide distribution.
From its caverns in the mountains to its
underground dugouts, the voice of clandestine
radio has stubbornly persisted in El Salvador.
Despite bombardments, interference and the need
for constant mobility, each station has sustained its
four daily one hour broadcasts since 1980.
Broadcasting from the territories controlled by the
FMLN, mobile radio units continue to elude
military detection. While the operators and location
of rebel radio remain a mystery, its reputation does
not. FMLN radio is the voice of the Salvadoran
people.
From January through July 1988, CiTR
is co-sponsoring a campaign to rasie funds for
Radio Farabundo Marti Radio Venceremos of the
FMLN. The objective of the six month campaign is
to provide each station with a complete operational
set of broadcasting equipment. Seven years of
transmitting from war zones and frequent
government attacks continually threaten the work
of the radios. Needless to say, the life of the radio
equipment is uncertain, not to mention the lives of
its operators. In British Columbia, the El Salvador
Information Collective (ESIC) will raise ten
thousand dollars toward the purchase of shortwave operating equipment. For free information

up to the bar.  "What's your poison?" asks the
bartender.
"Politics," responds the furry one.
"Will that be sexual, bureaucratic,
municipal or power politics?"
The gorilla pauses.  "Oh, just gimme

"Ya know, we don't get many gorillas in

"Well ai these prices, I'm not surprised," the gorilla snaps curtly.
Did you know it's the 70th anniversary
of the October Revolution? The October
Revolution, dude! Who cares really, ya know?
That was then and this is now. The important thing
is that this is a different time, i.e. a New Age. Now
you can pay someone fifteen bucks and for a whole
half hour you get some heavy-duty channelling.
Hold it a second, you don't know about channelling? Wake up and smell the cappuccino,
Virginia. It's the perfect way to fulfillment and
contentment in today's hectic dog eat dog world of
suffering and man's inhumanity to man. Channelling consists of one person using his or her body
to act as the vessel for the spirit of an ancient being
for the benefit of us other lowly schleps. I mean,
this is the single most important phenomenon of
the last couple months.
10 DISCORDER rfect way to atone for our
s and gain important knowledge at the same
" time. You dish up your fifteen bucks as a penance,
and as an added bonus you become empowered by
the wisdom of an ancient being. All for only
fifteen bucks. What more could you ask for?
Think of all the stuff we can ask this wise spirit of
the past. I can't think of anything right now but
I'm sure there's something valuable it might know.
God knows, we certainly need some
help nowadays. The world's a mess. Nobody has
much faith in today's society. Guidance is
desperately required. Who seriously puts their
faith in politicians? If you are foolish enough to do
so then you deserve whatever fate is inflicted upon
you. We need some help and we need it now.
Certainly, living/breathing human beings do not
have any solutions; living humans are the cause of
all our problems.
False messiahs of the flesh have
appeared on various occasions. We're all well
aware now of how bogus Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
was. Sure, he had us fueled and fooled for a little
while but eventually we learnt his evil ways. It
turns out that now the Connecticut General Life
Insurance Co. is foreclosing on the Bhagwan's
ranch in Oregon. How the mighty have fallen! But
Bhagwan is merely a plain old human when it
comes right down to it. Sure, he had a few ideas
but we all have our limitations. He seemed to be
well adjusted but then we learnt the truth.
Give me a non-living leader instead, a
being not caught up with material things and the
temptations of the flesh. Let's have a leader, or
rather 'guide' from time gone by. Sure, President
Reagan is old and wise but think of the wisdom of
a three thousand year old being. Reagan just
couldn't compete no matter how many books he
suddenly decided to read. The time is right to put
our faith in a being unencumbered by the
limitations of time and space. Humans are
imperfect and fallible. We need all the help we <
get. Channelling is the answer. Trust me. Hey
kids, let's Channel and let's Channel now. At
these prices, I'm not surprised.

Courtesy of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines ^1    lites rule all the countries of the world
^^^   for their own interests, whether or not
j they care to admit it. Mostly, they do
JKLmmttm not, and so must keep their activities
secret. The object of these machinations is power:
raw, naked, godlike power. This should not be .
confused with mere economics. There are ways
other than bribery to get someone to do something
he wouldn't otherwise do, such as threatening to
shoot him, or gratifying his emotional needs
(through religion, idealism, racism, sexual
stimulation). As this power is only worthwhile if
exercised over other people, it is finite, and can
only be increased by reducing that of another
person (life as zero-sum gain).
These kind of activities make conspiracy
theories popular. To aid creative paranoia, here
are ten relevant, suggestive facts:
1. Canada's largest chartered bank pulled
all of its assets out of Iran the day before the
Iranian government seized the assets of all other
foreign banks.
2. The same bank maintains the world's
second largest private army. Recently, a U.S.
Senate committee expressed dismay over this
heavy weaponry. The army is based in Oman, as is
the largest private army, which is owned by Exxon.
3. For the past fifty years, the Dow Jones
has always dropped sharply on the year's last trading day, and always risen shaprly on the year's

declare a loss on their taxes while not actually losing anything.
4. The World Stock Markets' recent Black
Tuesday followed a "Billionaires Club" meeting in
Washington (Jimmy Pattison was present). The
previous hyperinflation of the market followed a
similar meeting last March in Zurich.
5. Of every dollar spent on booze in the
world, sixty cents eventually finds its way into the
pockets of two brothers from Montreal.
6. Roberto Calvi, Managing Director of
the Banco Ambrosiano, and a member of a secret
Masonic lodge dedicated to the subversion of the
Italian state, was hanged from Blackfriar's Bridge

THE

partner, collapsed in 1982, leaving about 1.3 billion
dollars owing. All indications were that these two
men could have been bribed to keep silent, but
someone didn't want to take that chance.
7. Over the past year, seventeen important
British defence scientists, most of them engaged in
laser and space-based research, have died under
very suspicious circumstances ranging from bizarre
auto accidents to carbon monoxide poisoning to
falling off well-railed balconies.
8. The U.S. Army now has twelve

9. During the Watergate Crisis, Richard
Nixon brought a recalcitrant CIA into line by
threatening to expose "the Mexican Stuff*. When
asked about this, Bob Hal demand said it referred to
the assasination of John F. Kennedy.

Is there One Big Conspiracy, a sort of

paranoia. There are many connections between
the various conspiracies. The Royal Bank of

DISCORDER of demands,
dubious philosophy
; an absurdity and
our demands
The idea that there are no conspiracies has been popularized by historians working
for the universities and institutes funded by the
principal conspirators of our time: the
Rockefeller-Morgan banking interests, the
Council on Foreign Relations crowd, the Trilateral Commision. This is not astonishing or
depressing. Conspiracy is standard mammalian
politics for reasons to be found in ethology and
Von Neumann's and Morgenstern's Theory of
Games and Economic Behavior. Vertebrate
competition depends on knowing more than the
opposition, monopolozing information along
with territory, hoarding signals. Entropy, in a
word.
^piRAcV
It only takes 20 years for a liberal to
become a conservative without changing a
single idea.      	
w*
My experience is that almost
everybody thinks somebody else is to blame for
their problems. If it isn't the Jews or the
Catholics or the International Bankers, it's the
Masons or the ecologists or the local utility.
Kids blame their parents. Parents blame their
kids. In a sense, all of these "conspiracy"
theories are self-calming, in that they put the
problem outside in an "enemy" who can be
hated and blamed, but that is the only sense in
which I can find the average domesticated
primate to be self-calming. To organize a lynch
mob or a riot — to yell, "The Enemy's over
there, fellers!" and get a crowd behind you— is
still the easiest game on the Planet of the Apes.
I see the power game as resting on
three levels of force and fraud. First, earliest
and still most powerful is the government
racket itself, the monopoly of force (military
power, police power, etc.) which allows the
governing group to take tribute (taxation) from
the enslaved or deluded masses. Second, derivative from this primordial conquest, is the
landlord rackel, the mammalian monopoly on
territory which allows the king's relatives
(lords-of-the- lands) or their successors, today's
"landlords", to take tribute (rent) from those
who live within the territory. Rent is the
daughter of taxation; the second degree of the
same racket. Third, the latest in historical time,
is the usury racket, the monopoly on the issue
of currency which allows the money-lords to
take tribute (interest) on the creation of money
or credit, and on the continuous circulation of
the money or credit every step of the way.
Interest is the son of rent, the rent of money.
Current welfare practices emerged
from 70 years of struggle between liberals and
conservatives; the conservatives won most of
the battles. The system functions to heighten
the addiction syndrome. The recipient gets a
small fix at the beginning of the month, nicely
calculated to support one extremely frugal
miser until about the 10th of the month.
Through hard experience, he or she learns to
make this last until the 15th, or maybe even the
20th. The rest of the month is experienced as
acute biosurvival anxiety. This deprivation
period, as any pusher or Skinnerian conditioner
knows, maintains the whole cycle. On the first
of the next month, another money fix is allowed
and the whole drama begins anew.
My basic philosophy can be
expressed as follows: the prosperous and
growing nations have nothing in common
politically. Some are capitalist, or state
capitalist, some are socialist or mixed economies, some are communist, some facist. The
politics is obviously irrelevant to their relative
success. What do we have in common? Advanced technology. And vice versa! There is no
common politics among the starving, backward
nations. Some are primitive capitalist, some
feudal, some facist, some socialist. What do
they have in common? Backward technology or
no technology. How, then, will we solve the
problems afflicting this planet? Not by politics
of any sort; all of it is irrelevant mammalian
ritual. We will solve our problems by better,
cheaper, more efficient technology; especially
space migration, the technology of consciousness and intelligence raising, and life extension.

DISCORDER CURRENT 93
Imperium
CURRENT 93/HOH
Crowleymass
MALDOROR (U.K.)
David Tibet, who for all intents and purposes IS
Current 93, is nothing if not a stickler for detail. He
leaves no stone unturned in his attempts to make his
various releases living, breathing spectres of Hell:
his choice of grammar on record sleeves, the placement of the various tracks on the disc, the packaging... the list could go on and on.
More than anything else, it's the obvious thought that
goes into everthing he does that compels the listener
in turn to think...one way or another. Sonicly, Imperium, the most recent Current 93 album, has little in
common with earlier releases. Most of the electronic
gnashing and grinding is gone. The sound is fairly
honest, almost natural. Acoustic guitar work, Tibet's
voice, choirs moaning in the background - - these are
the main sources. But there's also a variety of subtle
washings buried deep in the mix. You could listen for
ages and never figure all of them out, though the
overall message is abundantly clear without delving
too far anyway. This aspect characterizes all of
Tibet's work. Whether you take what he is saying to
you seriously on not, you must ultimately admit to
the sheer power and ingenuity of the ways in which
he says it.
The 12" single, Crowleymass, released simultaneously with Imperium, is what we've all been waiting for... gothic rap has arrived. For years now New
York sidewalk commandoes have been telling us
about how horrid life is. Now we have it taken to its
logical excess. This is tremendoulsy funny with
instruments and drums by IIOH (Hilmar orn
Himarsson - ex Psychic TV) and vocals by Tibet and
Rose McDowell (Strawberry Switchblade).

going for them.

the band. Does this make a difference?
Yes, the best place to see
Oversoul 7 is from the balcony.
How many original songs do you have?

John Ruskln
Once you get by the inherent sexism that permeates a
lot of LL Cool J's music you have to admit that this guy
can put out some pretty righteous beats. While RUN
DMC layer their rap with heavy metal guitar riffs, LL
(aka James Smith) and his DJ Cut Creator program the
hell out of their drum machine and put it right up front
in the mix. Since LL and his producers have seen fit
to add in the odd guitar sample, BAD's sound isn't as
strippped down as 1985's Radio, but they use them
sparingly and wisely. Though the term "crossover"
doesn't exactly aply here, homeboys white and black
are going to buy this one. LL Cool J's raps run the
gamut from macho posturing to pissed off preaching
with uptown rhetoric. He can be frightening and
hilarious in the space of a breath and if he can do all this
at age 18 he's going to be awesome in a couple of years.

THROWING MUSES
THE FAT SKIER
4AD
FEED ME FEED ME! They scream. Owee! I'm
being consumed by a deluge of carnal screamings and
thomy-souled women. The coy ravings of Kristen
Hersh coupled with the Muses' spare, melodic
rhythms envelope your brain and prickle your insides.
Their songs are intense but ambivalent: anger and
hurt undercut by naked jubilation. Soap And Water
exemplifies the seeming contradiction, as self-
absorbed delirium finally collapses into nothing with
'I caught a star, though.' Give yourself to...the Fat
Skier.

Why Pay More?
This isn't music! This is just excerpts from a radio
program broadcast weekly out of CKLN-FM
(Toronto) which is itself just excerpts from all the
other radio programs broadcast on the station. Edited
excerpts. Mixed excerpts. Mashed excerpts. This is
not music! There'snot one original sound. Hmmmm.
Maybe it is music. What is music anyway? I do like
the way it all spills together. Kind of like a week's
sensory input accelerated into ninety minutes. Kind
of like a cross section of the modem brain. If this is
music (and who says it isn't? Mozart? What the hell
does he know? He's dead and besides he was a
Freemason), then maybe the future won't be so bland
after all. It will be confusing though. Cassette only.

This is Stranger Than Love
Every so often someone "discovers" Erik Satie's

with it. The fact that it's been done so many, many
times before seems to be elusive...likewise the fact
that the original is still better.
MOTORHEAD
Rock 'N' Roll
Ode To Lemmy
I love the sound of Motorhead
And Lemmy's pounding bass
They thrash and smash and slash about
And bash you in the face.
I love the force of Motorhead
And their awesome deafening sound
It's like a bag of wet cement
As it crashes on the ground.
This new disk from Motorhead
They call it Rock *N' Roll
It heaves and throbs and belches
And" screws your very soul.
Yeah, this new one from Motorhead
It's fierce and so profane
It'll penetrate inside your skull
And wreck your quivering brain.

PAUL SERRET
Tapis Volant
Paul Serret plays a Persian Santoor, an instrument
whose origins date back at least 3000 years. Said to
be the predecessor to the harpsichord/piano, its
sounds are richly harmonic, delicately powerful and
vaguely middle eastern in reference. On this release,
Monsieur Serret has chosen to highlight this unique
sound through juxtaposition with the more common,
modem sounds of synthesizers (Geoffrey Wakefield) and percussion. The fusion is effective, merging old with new in a way that evokes timelessness.
The concept of Tapis Volant (French for
flying carpet) is of a journey through sonic landscapes. It may sound like a new age cliche, but it
really works. I found myself simply flipping the tape
after each pass, never being sure of how long I had
been listening or for that matter, where I had been.
Once inside this aural environment you become
simply oblivious to any other stimulus. Try it (with
headphones) and you'll hear what I mean.
Paul Serret should be familiar to anyone
who has travelled the downtown area by foot. He can
often be heard playing his santoor amid some of the
most resonant architecture in town. Tapis Volant is
an entirely local product, utilizing some of the best in
local talent. It should not be overlooked by anyone
who has a desire for the exotic. Cassette only. P.O.

DISCORDER SCREAMING BLUE MESSIAHS
Bikini Red
Bikini Red has the Screaming Blue Messiahs sounding a little more focussed and forceful than on last
year's Gun Shy. Using adrenalin-charged Gang of
Four style guitar rushes, the SBMs attack with the
same inspired primitivism that made the Sex Pistols
so unforgetable. On Bikini Red guitarist/songsmith
Bill Carter has immersed himself in American pop
culture and produced some spot-on sketches of life in
the Home-of-the-Brave-Tabloid-Readers. Some are
wry, others are outright hilarious. Bikini Red is an
outsider's view of everyday junk, and while not revelatory, it is fun.

anywhere.  (Auurrieah!)

what isf
*   ebruary being the shortest month is as
M good an excuse as any, I suppose, to keep
this installment of Local Motion brief too (it also
helps that I'm way behind on listening to demos, as
always at this time of year).
As far as out of-town bands coming to
town, January's been a pretty dead month, with
Game Theory turning out to be the gig to go to—
even though the sound was quite abysmal (I kept
wondering if I was just imagining those keyboards
cutting in and out). Certainly, there were enough
sociable local music types there for me to almost
make up for missing the CITR Christmas party.
Cannon Heath Down, who opened, sounded very
nice as usual, in spite of appearing a little awed by
the Town Pump's big stage.
As for the local scene, The Hip Type
celebrated finally latching onto a drummer by
putting out Volume 1, Issue 1 of The Secrets of the
Hip Type, which is a magazine full of all sorts of
groovy and well documented facts like Tracy and
Erica's (they should know) five hot tips for
"picking up babes". To join their fan club, write:
The Hip Type, 879 West 16th Ave., Vancouver, V5Z
1S9.
And as for the almost local scene, my
favorite band (that's still together, of course), The
Young Fresh Fellows, are back in the studio
starting work on album number four, their second
for Frontier Records. And if Vancouver's Young
Fresh Friends (like me) keep crossing our fingers,
the Fellows should be rolling up from Seattle to
play the last weekend in February or thereabouts.
this? {■
In the world of demo tapes, two songs
by the recent Shindig winners The 4 Ones are now
on the air, "George the Whale" and "Telefon".   As
I'm not very good at explaining the band's
sound— it seems people quite passionately love
them or hate them anyway— the best I can do is
describe "George the Whale" as funny/cruel/nasly/
kind of disgusting/ a social statement.
Also fresh to CITR's airwaves is
"Forgiven" by the Velveteens, a band whose lineup
has changed considerably since their self-produced
record of some time ago. The 'Teens took a year
off, adding former Crimpolines accordian player/
singer Karen Anderson (you can hear her backup
vocals on this song) and Hoi Polloi's old drummer,
and moving away from the old sound which
Laurence describes as "quite a bit darker" than
what's on this tape.
To round off this month's column, a
demo from Green For Go that's commercially
available, at least at Track and Zulu. Not the best
recording quality in the world, but these guys have
pop sensibilities. They write simple, fun songs and
seem to have a good time playing them. This is the
kind of band, though, that could be way better live.
I guess I'll see for myself. Currently playlisted :
"Now Reaction".

(ABRIDGED VERSION)
"We  are  discreet  sheep;  we  wait to see how the drove is
going, and then go with the drove."
Opportunists of the world,
sit on the fence and take credit 1
This is your moment. You cannot
be denied. Your ambitions are
your reason to be. All else
follows. THE ENDS DO JUSTIFY THE
MEANS. Don't listen to
strangers. Patronize them.
Don't even try to understand.
Pretend. Be cunning. Be
careful. Be sly. Remember,
your only hope is that you are
being watched.
Elusiveness is the stuff of
dreams. Fit the public image.
THE CLOTHES DO MAKE THE MAN.
Wear a watch.  Wear underwear.
YOU ARE OUT TO MAKE AN
IMPRESSION! YOU ARE OUT TO MAKE
CONNECTIONS! Connections mean
power. Power is sex. Power is
money. Power is never having to
say you're sorry. Are you
willing to exploit the poor, the
weak, the feeble of mind? Isn't
this fun!
ALWAYS AVOID PEOPLE WHO:
- have less than money than
you - smoke standard cigarettes
- wear rubber - keep rodents for
pets
ALWAYS:
- appear to be having a good
time - call ahead for
reservations - send thank-you
cards (fruit  basket optional)
NEVER:
- ignore the wrong person
(crucial!) - eat standing up at a
buffet fundraiser - pick up
hitchikers - pick your nose in
public  -   scratch   in  public-
slouch in public - sleep in the
daytime - look at anyone on the
bus (crucial!)
NEVER ACTUALLY FALL IN LOVE OR
INVOLVE YOURSELF IN ANY KIND OF
INTIMATE PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP!
IF NECESSARY, FAKE IT.
ALWAYS:
- stand up straight - keep a
wide selection of sweaters-
appear genuine in your deep
spiritual search for the meaning
of life (CAUTION: TRUE
INTROSPECTION MUST BE AVOIDED AT
ALL COSTS. IT CAN LEAD TO
SELF-LOATHING WHICH IS THE
DEATH OF THE OPPORTUNISTIC
SPIRIT.)
ALWAYS:
- contribute to charity (but
never anonymously) - watch
"Moonlighting" - buy the first
round of drinks - plan your week
in advance.
THE SUCCESSFUL OPPORTUNIST:
appears to be
heterosexual but persues closet
bi- sexuality. He/she never
knows who he/she might have to
impress.
has no convictions,
moral, political or otherwise.
(CONVICTIONS ONLY STAND IN THE
WAY OF AMBITION.)
. . . avoids responsibility
at  all  costs.    (ALWAYS  LEAVE
DECISION MAKING TO SOMEONE ELSE.)
. . . always gets credit for
his accomplishments no matter how
trivial.
has no qualm with
taking credit for somebody else's
accomplishments.
REQUIRED READING:
- Megatrends - Your Erroneous
Zones - I'm Ok, You're Ok - Atlas
Shrugged - How to Pick Up Girls
SUGGESTED DISPLAY MATERIAL (not
to be read!):
- anything by Tolstoy,
Dostoyevsky, Gogol (or any other
dead Russian) - anything by
Freud, Jung, Kipling, Dickens,
Hemingway, Blake, Proust,
Burroughs, Kundera, Sheldon or
Robbins.
SUGGESTED ROLE MODELS:
Bill Van Der Zalm, Ed McMahon,
Albert Speer, Kurt Waldheim,
George Michael, Gary Hart, Andy
Warhol, Jane Fonda, Paul Weller,
John Lydon, Pia Zadora, George
Bush, Teddy Kennedy, Sylvester
Stallone, Liberace, Brian
Mulroney, Idi Amin, Neil Diamond,
Werner Erhard, Don Johnson, Robin
Leach, Chairman Mao, Klaus Von
Bulow, Imelda Marcos, Andy
Rooney, Madonna, Margaret
Trudeau, The Beastie Boys, Boy
George, Shirley MacLaine, anyone
who's famous,  most lawyers.
THE     SUCCESSFUL     OPPORTUNIST
IS   NICE.
