Dear Airhead,
Thanks much for the
wonderful Russ Meyer interview. At last something for a
Texas redneck to relate to. I
wasn't aware of Canada's
censorship problem however. When I visited your fair
city two years ago I came
away with the impression
that it would be a good place
to escape to when the Quayle
administration takes over.
Please send your ignorant
blue-nose born agains to
Texas so I canmove up there.
Thank you,
Joe Newman

SUSAN     GETS     THE
SCOOP
Dear Airhead,
Picture an "independant" band with limited resources that has a product to
sell. They only have money
to invest in one of three
choices be it L.P.'s.CD.'s or
cassette tapes. How many
cassette players vs. CD.
players vs. turntables are
there in the world? My guess
would be cassette players on
top.
TJ_w you're a band on
tour. Have you ever travelled
across the country (esp.
southern U.S.) in the summer
with a couple of hundred
L.P.'s? I have and it's hard to
sell your new warped L.P.
I've flown to gigs with a
couple hundred cassettes. No
problem getting them on the
plane. A little harder to do
with a couple of hundred
L.P.'s...
I play in a band called
Roots Roundup and we are
an independant band by
choice. We have never gone
looking for the almighty
"record deal". We take care
of our own business and
contract out those jobs that
can be done better and more
efficiently than we can.
However, we maintain strict
control over all facets of our
operation. Sure it would be
nice to be "signed" but it's
not at the top of our list of
priorities. We are an independant band that's relatively successful, and for us,
tapes are the most cost effective way of getting our music
to the masses. As you read
this we are on a seven week
Canadian tour.
So Susan Ferran (It's A
Dirty Job....Airhead, May)
put up or shut up. Start a
band, remain independant,
research the ways and costs
of getting your finished product to the people so you can
go out and play for those
people. Again I can't stress
the word independant
enough.
There are musicians out
there who enjoy the business
and playing of music in any
capacity be it the street corner or to huge hockey rinks
(I've done both). I, and we as
a band are fiercely devoted to

Roots Roundup
The Man Scan. By Lomm Sorbay.
Canadians' fascination with dumb guys has to end. How
much longer can wc uphold the careers of C-FOX'S Larry &
Willy and MuchMusic's Mike & Mike anyway? Take heart,
because someday when the hammer falls — and it will fall —
it's coming down hard on these jokers.
For those who are impatient, let mc predict the inevitable scene:
Larry & Willy & Mike & Mike are all packed in the
defendant's box at the folk tribunal. They're dressed in grey
prisoner's uniforms and wear the complementary wrist and
ankle bracelets. They look pale, shaken, and all have several
days' beard growth. They're facing a mean-assed council of
young intellectuals appointed by the revolutionary cabinet.
The dumb guys' sentence is harsh: they've got to endure
an incessant tape loop of their own performances. They'll
have their noses rubbed in their own mess, indefinitely. The
proverbial boot will stomp on their senses forever.
In a pathetic display, Willy begins to sob madly, claiming Larry put him up to it all. One Mike flops his head into
the other Mike's lap, and he too starts crying. The scene
doesn't move any of the council, who've been hardened by
months in the bush training and plotting for the coup.
Not since the overthrow of Ceaucescu does the world
smell such sweet justice. The socialist utopia is at hand, etc.. HMSf

Ok, okay. Pm going to phone the drummer for the Wonder
Stuff, and tell him, busy man that he is, that I want to talk to him
half an hour from now so I can tape it. Right, sure, these guys hate
everyone. It says so in the New Music Express.

"Hello, uhm, is Martin thei
"Speaking." (This said i
Beatles-type accent.)
"Could I call back in half an hour?
We're having some technical problems here?" (Cringing silence on my
part, waiting for his answer.)
"Sure, I'll go have a shower."
(Whew)
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 2
"HELLO, HELLO? Randy, Lloyd
you're the music directors. Why the
hell isn't our equipment working !"
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 3
Ok, okay. I'll phone him again
and I'll just take notes. Right, s
"Hello, is Martin there?"
"Yes, I'm naked now."
"Er uhm, so tell me about the band on
the road." ( Shit, this won't be easy.)
And you know dear reader it
^n^asv j^rviewing someone on
the phone when they are naked and
the recording equipment won't tape
over the phone. So the gist of what
was imparted is this.
Bob 'THE BASS THING"
Jones left the band at Christmas time.
Bob, perhaps the least pretty human
being to ever wrestle some rhythm
and a bit of melody out of four
strings. Bob, who despite being the
least pretty human being to i
wrestle some rhythm and a bi
melody out of four strings, obviously
had a good heart (after all he took his
winnings from the pools — English
betting shops — and paid for the first
two Wonder Stuff singles). Oh lord,
how could they ever hope to replace
a man who cut his own hair while
being interviewed by the pissed
hacks of the British Music Press?
"We've got Paul Clifford playing with us now. He's a friend of
ours; we've known him for ten
years." (Ah well, easy come easy
go.) "We've also got Martin Bell
with us. He played fiddle and banjo
on the album and he does that live
and plays some guitar so Miles
(Hunt) can concentrate on his singing."
Remember, you read it here first.
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 4
Ok. Okay. So the phoner
sucked. I'll fake it, no-one will notice; after all, Rob Boper did an interview with the Sugarcubes by stealing  Tom  Harrison's  notes.  Yeah
sure, no problem.
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 5
"Do  you  want  to  interview  The
Wonder Stuff again?"
"Maybe."
Britain's No.2 city. The music press
almost wet itself over it a few years
ago when bands like the Stuffics,
Pop Will Eat Itself, and The Mighty
Lemon Drops popped up out of the
midlands in which the city is located.
: "I don't
lining the wall. That's why Miles
will say things to piss off the crowd.
Getting a bad response is better than
getting no response at all." All this
bad press stuff in the UK is starting
to make sense.
"Because there is basically only
one radio station in the UK (the
BBC's Radio One, which provided
the inspiration for "Radio Ass Kiss")
the press there operates like college
radio does here. But no matter how
much they write about the band you
still won't know what they sound
like... so you get 15,000 - 25,000 out
lid be in person at their hotel."
"Ok, okay, sure, yeah, right, fine."
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 6
OK, okay, sure, fine. I'm at the
hotel and I've just met Martin the
I know he sounds really snotty
but you had to have been there to
understand how unforced his state-
to see a band play London, just out of
curiosity. It's a new way of doing it;
people don't play gigs anymore to
build up an audience." And why
should you build up an audience? So
you can get signed to a record label
7 DON'T GIVE A SHIT
ABOUT BIRMINGHAM."
drummer. He's dressed and my tape
deck is working. Things are looking
up.
"We live in London these days.
It's sort of a scam with the record
company. Because we're from Birmingham they pay for our flats while
we're in the studio and because we're
always recording I've only had to
pay for two months rent last year."
For those of you unfamiliar wi
mingham, it is often referred to
I then asked the ever popular
"how does here compare to there"
question. "In America we've played
to 200 hundred people in an 1800
seat hall, but they'll all be in front of
the stage. (Now for an amusing side
step concerning the band and their
first trip to the US A. "You're in your
hotel room and if the phone rings you
immediately look to the TV to see
what's on. You understand, we'd
only heard that sort of phone on the
Rockford Files." Now back to playing live). In Britain they would be
and get all their money.
"Actually we went looking for
a label after we ran out of money
from putting out our first two singles.
So we asked for control of everything and just enough money to run
for a year. More often you get these
bidding wars where the band says
we'll start at 100,000 pounds and
two or three labels bid for them. But
they don't have any control and then
they complain about how awful it is
on a major label. Stupid really." The
down side of this would seem to be
their relationship with the US office
of their label. "It is all business in
New York; they don't even talk
about the music. They don't understand a band that doesn't want to be
rich and famous so they leave us
alone, which is fine by us."
He does, however, take a certain amount of delight in recounting
the label's treatment of bands when
they first arrive in New York.
"You're put in a first class hotel, you
go down to the office, everyone has
a copy of the record, they'll all tell
you how much they love the band
and you come away thinking,
' Hmmm, maybe we do have a chance
over here.' But there was a case
where they had two bands coming
n, one day after another, and
they got it wrong and greeted one
band as the other!"
So what about those records?
Their first Canadian album, "Eight
Legged Groove Machine" presented
the band as a snotty bunch of young
men singing "It's your Money I'm
After Baby " and "Give, Give, Give,
Mc More, More, More." "It's hard to
explain the songs," he said, before
giving it a try. "Wc only write about
what we've experienced. When
you're close to the band you can
understand, see how they were
written...before we recorded
'Groove Machine' we were so
amazed about this money and where
it was coming from and I guess that
showed up on the record."
__p»
The follow up, last year's
"HUP," showed a slight change in
the lyrical concerns of the band.
"Malcom broke up with his girl
friend so there's 'Unfaithful' and
'Cartoon Boyfriend.'" He then
paused and looked over at Malcom
Treece, The Stuffies' guitarist, who
was being interviewed across the
room. "Actually, 'Unfaithful' was
something different." I guess you do
have to be in the band, because that
made no sense to me. (But I think I
know why Bob "The Bass Thing"
Jones, the least pretty human being
to ever wrestle some rhythm and a bit
of melody from four strings, left the
band... no "M" in his name.)
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 7
My impossibly tall room mate
paid $22.00 to see The Wonder Stuff
open for The Mission. He was a bit
late and the band was on stage early,
so he saw only three songs by those
pop groovies and then endured an
entire set by The Mission. So I figure
he paid $7.00/song for The Stuffies
and $1.00 for The Mission's entire
output.
THE WONDER STUFF-TAKE 8
Ok, okay. If you don't like The
Wonder Stuff you're just a big goof.

^l n the early eighties the
*H«1 Gothic scene in Britain was
&'* j apparently alive and vibrant,
altliough this seems contradictory
for a movement based primarily on
death. Bands such as Bauhaus, The
Southern Death Cult ( who later
pared down their name to the Death
Cult, then finally just to The Cult ),
and the Sisters of Mercy were both
very popular and important musically. Bul with recent meagre offerings by Peter Murphy and the Cult,
as well as the impending travesty to
come from the joining of forces of
Andrew Eldritch (the only original
member of the Sisters left in the
band) and Tony James (of Sigue
Siguc and Gen X notoriety) as the
new Sisters lineup, the Gothic movement is truly dead. Topping the list
of post-Gothic bands with no redeeming qualities who are now
merely parodies of themselves is the
Mission, who brought their Spinal
Tap-esquc show to Vancouver last
month.
With the dubious distinction of
being formed from the charred remains of the original Sisters lineup,
the beginnings of the Mission looked
promising. Wayne Hussey had
served a stint as the guitarist for
Dcad-Or-Alivc, hence his knowledge of cosmetics and prima donna
routines, before joining the Sisters in
1983. For the next three years he and
Andrew Eldritch were the creative
energy which made the Sisters'
music so powerfully dark and captivating (just like their inner souls, or
at least, that's what their press release says). They recorded the magnificent "First and Last and Always"
album and anumbcrof unforgettable
twelve inches in the brief span of
their tolerance of one another. But
after too many battles for control of
the make-up mirror, the two had a
very public irreconcilable falling
out. After leaving the Sisters at the
tail end of 1985, Wayne Hussey

(Lead ego) and Craig Adams (the
original bassist for the Sisters)
quickly recruited Mick Brown
(drummer from Red Lorry Yellow
Lorry) and Simon Hinkler (guitarist
from Artery) in order to continue
their musical odysscy. This time they
would be called the Mission, after
first attempting to
use the name Sisterhood, the unofficial
name of the Sisters'
fan club.
Somewhere between the time of
their first single,
"Serpent's Kiss," in
May 1986, and their
latest offering, the
"Carved in Sand"
LP, a span of eight
singles and four albums, the Mission
have lost any credibility which they
may have started
with. Strutting onto
the stage as if they
were about to conquer the world, the
Mission were laughable in every possible respect. Probably very few peoph

to exploit themselves, the press, and
worst of all, their audience. Sincerity, integrity, and inspiration have
been forsaken in order for them to

easy drugs and easy women which

The Mission
come off as artificial and lacking
any substance.
The second
element of the
mission was to
have the rock 'n'
roll posing noticed by the press
and by the public.
Hussey and company toyed with
the British press,
"leaking" stories
of their sexual and drug escapades.
They captured headlines across Europe; not headlines such as, "New
Mission Album Not As Pathetic As
Previous Albums," but headlines
such as "Craig Adams Flips During
American Tour Because of Too
Many Drugs."
Whether these stories, which
they claim for the most part are accurate, are true is not the point. The
point is that their methods and music
do not stand up to the tests which
should be applied to artists in the
1990s.
But Polygram has a new angle
to ensure that the Mission get noticed by the press in Canada since the
band can't stand on its own merits.
They are trying cheesy gimmicks.
Included in The Mission press kit:
one Mission broach, one Mission
necklace, one Mission bandana, one
Mission Tour Poster, one Mission T-
Shirt, one Mission baseball cap, one
Mission tour CD (promotional copy
only not for resale). Most of these
were for sale at the gig - one Mission
necklace... $8.00. I don't know if
one wears all this Mission clothing
and ornaments one becomes more attuned with Wayne Hussey, or if they
are just meant to be a method by
which to fleece the band's audience
of even more money.
In the end, The Mission is not a
band, it is a publicity and dating
vehicle for Mr. Hussey and his
compatriots. With this said, Discorder had the opportunity of interviewing Craig Adams and Mick Brown
from The Mission, which we readily
accepted. And as representatives of
the Mission they were polite, affable
and interesting people to talk to. We
did not have the opportunity of talking with Mr. Hussey.
Discorder: It seems as if early on in
the Mission's career there was a
conscious effort of myth-making by
intentionally "leaking" stories about
Wayne Hussey's use of narcotics and
women, including a story where he
offered to share an over-enthusiastic
groupie with a reporter he was being
interviewed by. Did you find anything reprehensible about this tactic or did it just not bother you? And was
it case of a crass attempt to exploit
the press for publicity?
Mick Brown: Yeah, um ... um, yeah
... you know there's., um... [and other
guttural sounds until a very unconvincing response] No, it didn't
bother me. I could waffle on for ages
but that's the short answer. There is
probably an element of truth in a lot
of the stories; some are quite true
while one or two others are complete
fabrications. We're like anybody
else, we take any opportunity presented to have fun. We live by the
pleasure principle.
Craig Adams: I think it was a little
bit of both, Hussey and the press
exploited one another. It was great to
have a front cover on a major newspaper before we even had a record
out so we started playing up to that,
which is very easy to do in Britain. I
don't think we could do it here. But
the newspapers realized that they had
something lhat they could sell newspapers with. I don't regret the stories
which were written because most of
them are true.
D: Is there a difference between the
British and North American press?
And do they say anything that bothers the band?
Craig: There is a complete difference between the North American
and British press. The British press
are more into how much you had to
drink last night, or how many times
you fell over, and not what you actually do musically. They are far more
into scandal mongering than you are
here.
I think the people here are far
more into listening to the music than
the scandals which go with it, which
is good. You get sick of it all because
it becomes very boring. I mean, we
don't take any notice of what anyone
says anyway, in regards to newspaper people.
Mick: You can't let them bother you.
Besides, we sell more records than
they sell papers.
D: The Mission is now apparently
one of the few remaining vanguards
of the Gothic Scene. Has this scene
in Britain merely become a living
parody of itself?
Craig: I don't know if there really
was a Gothic Movement. I think it
basically came down to journalists
wanting to pigeon-hole another sort
of music to make their jobs easier.
It's like the heavy metal scene now.
There is death metal, speed metal,
and thrash metal, but it's all just
music.
There is only good music and
bad music and not all these false
styles of music. If people think all
we do is wear white make-up and
black clothes they shouldn't bother
coming to our shows; we're not, nor
were we ever, like that. Nor do I
think most of the bands who were
put into that category ever were either.
Mick: I don't really know or care.
It's just music to me. There are times
when a fashion goes along with
music, everybody has a uniform to
wear. Yeah, even The Mission has a
uniform; we wear short shirts and
sneakers at the r
mos comes from an incident in Germany involving one of our fans who
happened to look a lot like an Eskimo because of his half Asian descent. It was very cold so he was
wearing a Parka before the show.
The locals began pointing at him and
laughing; but he couldn't understand what they were saying except
that they would occasionally point at
him, say the word Eskimo, and
laugh.
On the whole the Eskimos are
began to take yourselves too seriously. Is the recent departure of
original Mission guitarist, Simon
Hinkler, in the midst of the North
American tour, a sign that The Mission are now taking themselves too
seriously?
Craig: That is one reason that is
always given for the breakup but it
basically came down to the fact that
we didn't like him [Andrew Eldritch]
anymore. He was a bad person to get
D: Your most devoted fans, those
who follow you from gig to gig and
from continent to continent, are
called Eskimos. What is the origin of
this most unusual moniker, an interesting one for us in Canada? And do
you ever wonder if these people actually have lives, unlike Dead
Heads?
Mick: The origin of the ti
n Eski-
pretty cool; they are just into having
a good time. They are not totally
devoted to us; they take the piss out
of us just as well as the next guy. But
those who follow us all the way to
Canada must be either rich or
thieves.
D: One of the reasons which is often
cited for the breakup of the classic
Sisters of Mercy lineup was that you
along with, ana there was no point in
wasting so much of our time on
something that we didn't particularly enjoy anymore. We don't want
to get into a situation where we are
staying together just for the sake of
it. As for Simon, I think he didn't
feel like doing it anymore, so he's
not doing it. It's as simple as that.
Although we don't know where he
is, I don't think there is anything
wrong with him, like he's gone
mental or is strung out.
D: Do you feel that the present promotion of the band is demeaning its
integrity?
Mick: That's record company stuff,
isn't it. It's always the same. Yeah,
it's bollocks.
Craig: Obviously the record companies are in the business of selling
records, and they would be foolish
not to promote it in some way. But I
think they can only do so much.
D: What hobbies or passions do you
have that take you away from the
music business?
Mick: I've got a passion for trucks. I
used to be a truck driver; me dad
used to drive a truck. Driving
through America is quite nice for
inc. I love going to all the truck stops
and exchanging pleasantries with all
the big, hairy truck drivers.
D: The show in Vancouver is all-
ages, which is an oddity here. Is it
all-ages throughout the tour?
Craig: Yeah, we are getting a lot
mail fronTpcople who arc not old
enough to get into the gigs where we
play. That's not fair really. So, pretty
much the whole tour is all-ages, although we had to do a little bit of
diving and weaving in Montreal
where it was supposed lo be an over
age gig, but we got everybody in.
D: Considering the recent poll tax
demonstrations and the apparent
failure of the Red Wedge movement
in Britain, what should be the role of
musical artists in politics? And
within that role, where do The Mis-
Craig: I don't think The Mission has
its own politics. Wc each have our
own personal politics but we keep
them out of what we arc doing as a
group. If there is something that we
feel strongly enough about, which is
basically humanitarian causes and
not political things, then we'll do
something. Thus, we have played
many benefit concerts throughout
our career. It would be wrong for me
to speak on behalf of the entire band,
nor could Wayne Hussey be placed
in such a role.
I don't think people who stand
up with pieces of wood with metal
strings have any more right to make
a statement about a political thing
than anybody else has. Why should
they be able to abuse that power. The
fact that there are a bunch of twelve
year old kids listening to your music
doesn't give you the right to tell
them what is right and wrong in the
world. They should have the right to
make up their own minds, and not
have it forced onto them by people
abusing power. @>

AND ASK FOR ROBYNN. My Uncle Shep operated his
demolition company for
years,and everyone under-
 1 stood  that his  work was
strictly his concern. None of the
family had ever been to a Shep
worksite, and for fear of upsetting
him, no one dared ask the man,
"What was it like knockin' down
that art deco number?"
Then one day Shep made an
exception. He threw a dusty portfolio past my head and told me its
contents were now mine. "You'r
the writer, maybe you can use 'em,
he grumbled. Inside Ihc portfolio
was a wad of foolscap w
ing on each side of
sheet. I asked the old n
anthrope what he'd . r
given me to read. His ^^•._*-;..j_
explanation, given
the impatient nature of my relative,
was quite charitable. "I found these
at work. It's all what's
left of some young
fella."
What Shep had thrown
at me was apparently a ragged,
loose-leaf diary. The hand-writing '
was unimpressive yet legible,
merous shades of ink were used
irougheut suggesting many pens
had run dry. Some pages were
smudged; some had yellowed; all of
them were damp. Bundled together
by an elastic, the papers had belonged to a condemned building's
final tenant. A crewman discovered
the writings lying amongst a charred
sleeping bag, a slightly melted Bic
pen, and most notably, a ghostly pale
fist blackened at the wrist.
By discovering the human appendage, Shep's crewman created a
problem for the company. If reported, police investigators would
close the worksite in order to inspect
for the possibility of foul play. With
rentals and crew, Shep Demolition
Work continued on the site that
day, whereby the structure was razed
to the ground. A weighty mound of
brick, splintered lumber, plaster and
pipe buried the singed hand, sleeping bag and assorted belongings.
One crewman kept a walkman he
found at the scene. It worked once he

The diary began on a typical
Friday evening in the urban barnyard. The young man passed the time
before the dinner rush washing an
elbow-deep pile of greasy pans. Fat
Ford was clever, he idly smoked a
joint behind the shop until the deliveries began. Fat Ford, our young
man, and Sweet Dick the drifter were
the delivery staff for Ilyich's Pizza.
Ilyich, the only Russian
first stop. Without the Travelling
Wilburys' encouraging refrain, "It's
Al-right," and the weekly delivery to
#A3, the young man would not be
able to tolerate his job. Nightly he
suppressed the urge to drag Ilyich's
patrons down a staircase by the hair.
He especially loathed the Bad Tippers, whom he regarded as the lowest form of life.
The one unique opportunity delivery work afforded - to see
probably fired
recent days judging by the state of
the clenched digits. To avoid a major
financial loss, Shep had to act
quickly. He simply kicked the limb
aside like it was a tennis ball, and it
bounced out of view through a doorway. "I didn't see anything, did
you?" he asked, confident none of
his laborers would have any moral
objections at $13.75 per hour. Nobody spoke up. Then to his credit,
Shep asked that his mc: respectfully

papers inside his
coat. Nobody would ever s
pect that Shep, whose facial expression indicated either he was dissatisfied or chewing gum or both, actually mourned for the building's last
inhabitant.
For why else did he hand over
these writings to me? A dank bundle
of foolscap was an odd gift from
someone who usually gave soap-on-
a-rope as Christmas and birthday
gifts. Shep always rode me about
being a writer, implying my pen and
paper were wimpy compared to his
crowbars, crane and blasting caps.
Nevertheless, all the bastard's
oomph combined couldn't clear his
conscience. It chilled him that someone could completely disappear like
this unfortunate squatter, without
concern to anyone. It's as if I've
been called on to resurrect him
through words because my uncle
fears he could pass on just as anonymously. One day he doesn't get out
of a building on time, and Boom!
Shep gets shipped out with the rest of
the rubble, and no one notices he's
gone. That possibility scared him.
I read through the writings, and
page after damp page it held me. Not
only was this a surprisingly vivid
journal covering his last months, but
reading it was like snooping. Mankind needs the occasional snoop like
he or she needs food and sex. Publish
a celebrity's diary and there's usually a great stir of voyeuristic interest, even if it's a fake, like Hitler's.
Moreover, if one gets a chance to
peek in another's diary without getting caught, the opportunity is often
taken advantage of.
this        side
of Switzerland in the pizza business,
and Tom Bon Jovi were the cooks.
Fridays were significant for the
young man because of a small Hawaiian-style pizza ordered by the
occupant of apartment #A3, 1267
29th Street. Its resident had the distinction of being the only non-tipping customer who didn't raise the
young man's ire. Here lived the girl
he loved. He didn't know her name,
mind you (she was listed as Occupant at the building's entrance); and
he hadn't said more to her than, "Hi,
How are you tonight?" and
"Thanks." Still, plans of asking her
out invigorated him. Eventually he
hoped to build-up enough courage to
act.
"Delivery!" bellowed an irritable Tom Bon Jovi. The would-be
rock star was touchier than usual
tonight. His cheese allergy had
flared up again and left his face
spotted like the starry heavens. Fat
Ford heard the call, poked his head
inside and said to the young man,
"Oh, that's yours, eh?" "Yeah,
Ford," he responded, "take five."
Ford would jump ahead ifyou didn't
watch him. Up front, the order lay on
the counter. As the young man
passed by he saw Ilyich slip #A3's
small Hawaiian into the oven. He
knew he better hurry back.
His cranky '78 Honda started
after a few twists of the key. Ocean-
blue exhaust surrounded the car, then
dissipated. He punched "play" on his
walkman, and steered towards his
hom
young
detested.
Day after day, he saw who and what
made up the population. When one
tours the dark stairways and poorly
lit hallways of the city, often to be
greeted by someone wearing only
jockey shorts, or ragged sweats, or
stinking of booze and pot, one becomes cynical about democracy like
the young man had. Someday he
hoped there would be a better political system in which he and the girl in
#A3 could prosper.
party
that size. Each pizza was a meat special which meant a very butch crowd.
The young man took the armload
around to the back of the house and
kicked the basement door. An athletic kid answered and said, "Nah,
it's the pizza!" Apparently they were
expecting someone else. Actually,
they were waiting on an ambulance,
explained the kid. Two members of
their stag party had hurt themselves
butting heads. Sure enough, two unconscious men lay on the floor of the
suite with friends holding ice packs
to their crowns. The young man felt
a nice tip in the works. A little pandemonium is an advantage for the tip-
seeker. He left with a satisfying five-
buck tip. Two paramedics brushed
passed him on the front walk.
When he got back to Ilyich's,
Sweet Dick the drifter had arrived
for the late shift. Sweet Dick was the
image of the gentleman bum. Sixty
years ago his type would've ridden
empty boxcars around the country to
find work and to keep two steps
ahead of trouble. In spirit he was a
drifter, in reality he boarded in an
uptown heartbreak hotel. Dick lived
by two rules: never come to work
rowdy drunk, and keep your opinions to yourself. True to those words,
he was always very quiet, and just a
little pissed.
Dick and Fat Ford kindly agreed
a deal that let the young man
deliver to #A3 each week. It
: their secret, for if Tom
on Jovi found out he'd
spoil the young man's
routine. Setting out on
the girl's delivery the
young man was, as
usual, anxious. Every
Friday brought him
closer to the one
where he would finally,
and decisively, act. Tonight though the standard
"hellos" would do. He
pressed button #A3 at 1267
29th street, heard her usual
'Come on in," and then tugged open
the buzzing door. He rounded a corner and there she stood, in the doorway of her main floor fiat, holding
$7.50, exact change. "There you go.
Thanks. Goodnight." End of transaction. It was all very quick, like standing in the rain all day to see the Pope
drive by. But just a glimpse makes it
worthwhile for those who believe.
"It's Alright..." It certainly
was. The young man believed luck
would come his way eventually. By
taking matters into his own hands he
would be able to afford his rent, fix
his car, get a better job, and date the
girl in #A3. He could conceivably
have it all. However, "things" persistently stifled him. For instance, a
Bad Tipper always took the joy out
ofanightofgood tips. AndTom Bon
Jovi annoyed him just by being alive.
The young man hoped that by some
ingenious method he could get
around bad fortune. He eventually
would of course, by vaporizing.
So this is how much of the pizza
driver's life went by. Okay, the guy
wasn't Napoleon- he was an indolent
delivery boy, for pete's sake! Likely
he would've stayed that way if not
for subsequent events. And it's all
preserved in the journal, thanks to
Uncle Shep.
Everyone, with the exception of
Ilyich, knew that Sweet Dick kept a
flask inside his wool coat. They all
had little secrets they kept from the
boss. The young man's was his trip
to #A3 each week; Fat Ford's and
Sweet Dick's was substance abuse.
Tom Bon Jovi had all manner of bad
habits, and for a cook, his personal
hygiene was lacking. However, one
day this circle of mutual distrust was
broken. Dick was carrying out a

to the floor. This was during the dinner rush - deadly timing Dick was

"Dick's half-cut, no wonder he can't

the place Ilyich, ever the righteous
family man, simply said to the wizened gent. "Out." Somebody greener
lhan Dick might've objected, but he
iust shrugged his shoulders and
walked.
After the firing, our pusillani-
mous-io-the-core protagonist decided to do somelhing - a big step. He
would avenge Sweet Dick. That
evening he quietly coasted the
Honda inlo his parking spot in order
to elude the building manager's attention. Then, while stili strapped in
the driver's seat, a devious plan
occurred to the overdue renter. If it
succeeded, it would tear the guts out
of Tom Bon Jovi.
Ilyich's kitchen must have resembled a circus some nights. The
Russian ringmaster expected his
employees to play along with his
Slavic sense of fun. Sometimes "fat"
put-downs were the boss's bag. and
naturally Ford was the target. The
filthy driver had heard it all before,
so Ilyich's jibes rarely cut beneath
his adipose exterior. Occasionally,
however, the young man knew a
comment pierced Ford's big, overworked heart.
Ford's head was somewhat in
the clouds about what life should
bring him. For example, he thought
that one day he might marry and
have a family. You can always forgive a little wishful thinking, but in
Ford's case, unless the 37-year old
lug won the lottery, any trip down
the aisle for him would have to be
permanently postponed. It was the
fat man's THC-fed talk that provoked Ilyich's crudest teasing. The

while describing what a Mrs. Ford
would possibly look like, or what the
Ford litter might amount to. The fat
jokes rolled over Ford as they always
had, but the attack on his dreams hit
home. The look he got. thai sad-
faced clown expression let Ilyich
know when he'd had enough.
Inciting discord among his staff
was a bad habit the boss had to lose.
He was already short one driver, and
this cost him on busy nights. Ford
and the young man delivered steadily throughout their shifts, which
meant tasks like dishes and pizza

knew he'd created the current mess
If the young man was going to get
Bon jovi back, this certainly was the
most volatile time for it.
The opportunity came up
sooner than he thoughi il wouid. A
largi order was going tc one of the
belter hotels in the area, and it was
the young man's delivery "Ifs now
or never." he thought And off he
went transporting pizzas to the
swanky inn. Twenty-two minutes
later the young man returned. He exclaimed to Ford, who was on his way
out, "Guess whal.
I just delivered to
VAN HALEN."
He spoke up to
emphasize the
rock group's
name bul the
half-assed guitar -
isl/cook had taken
it all in.
"WHAT?!" Tom
fired back. "You
saw them?"
"Well, yeah," the
driver responded.

young man decided that was
enough. Bon Jovi
was already turning green. He
grabbed his next
delivery and made
off.
Touchez! It
was so simple and
it had worked.
The young man
knew that Tom
Bon Jovi felt tied
to that pizza oven.
By supposedly encountering the
cook's heroes
while   he   slaved
back at Ilyich's, the young man was
putting him through psychological
torture. A sweet sense of accomplishment came ever him, which he
savoured. He pulled over at a convenience store and bought a soda. He
sat on the hood of his Honda, sipping, very pleased with himself in-
Sclf-confidence, which he'd
heretofore never known, came as a
by-product of the young man's little
That Friday, it was his conviction lhat he should finally converse
with the girl in #A3. He considered
beforehand what he would say, and
noted it on a spare menu left on his
passenger seat. He entered the build-
none as bad as being evicted, which
three packed boxes full of his things
and changed locks might suggest had
just happened.
Exhibiting a little sleepiness
over the next day or so, the young
man w as determined to keep his chin
up. Tracking down sheliei ..in
making the best out of a squatter's
existence made his nighl'
ones Luckily, he was spurred on by
his recent achievements. Days alter

sent the rest of
his thunderbolts down
upon the enervated young
man. First, it
was a Bad Tipper. One ol
those dcadbeats
who gives five

out of the nearest   dollar   and
says.
"Dot
worry about it."
Yeah? Well
don'l worry
about this then -
ka-thunk, ka-

-down the stairs
you go! The
young man
came this close
this very moment it wouldn't be so
bad, would it?" thought the young
pizza driver. If life only was like
fiction, we could read ahead and
know when to take our final bows. If
the young man had taken an unsur-
vivable leap off a bluff in the Honda
we'd have a tragic story with a happy
ending. Instead, looking onward, wc
observe his downfall. A shame, really.
The young man turned down his
driveway, and once again silently
coasted his car past the building manager's suite. With a rusted and hole-
ridden muffler like the Honda's, and
two-month's back rent due, motoring through the lot this night
could've had dire consequences. But
like hair dra-
gathon down
the guy's own
front porch. In a
better world
you could do
stuff like that
legally, he
thought.
The revenge
of the wild-
haired cook followed. Friday
arrived with the young man excitedly anticipating his next meeting
with the girl in #A3. When he saw
her small Hawaiian pizza lifted out
of the oven, sliced, and placed in a
box, he moved towards the counter
for its delivery. But Ilyich called,
"Ford!" and the young man went
white. "Wait a second," he interjected, "it's my run. That's my delivery!" Ilyich, in his usual superior
tone, said it was Ford's. Then he
added, "Tom says this girl called and
said she didn' t want you to deliver to
her anymore, that you're trying to be
too friendly. So, no more to 29th
street." Ilyich can never make his
point too clear. "And you're lucky I
didn't fire you when I heard this."
The invertebrate Bon Jovi held his
sides he was laughing so hard behind
the Russian
For the rest of thai shift the
young man was in a daze He delivered ordei almost Hy role He complained later aboul indigeslion so

ild be Ford, whom it was
well known was looking for someone to court. The pain in his abdomen grew and spread throughout his
body. He fell too ill to carry on so he
put the writing aside.
Thinking he still needed a little
encouragement, the young man
reached for his Walkman tape-
player. He cued up "End of the Line"
as the feverish ache in his stomach
intensified. The jaunty opening
chords of that song always brought
some rebel to him. "It's Al-right...,"
he crowed in the vacant, unlit room,
"...ridin' around in the sun."Then, as
dirty, over used tape-players are apt
to do with worn, over-played cassettes, the Walkman jammed. Tlie
random freak of nature     spontane-
bow
far along at work on the young man's
body for him to worry aboul the fate
of the tape. The incendiary curse
brought his flesh and bones to a
temperature whereby they completely evaporated in thirty seconds.
The quickness of it all spared most of
the bedding, nearby paper and wood
flooring from incineration. With the
exception of the fist (a gesture, I
suppose, symbolic of his anger), the
rest of the poor kid was now part of
the ozone.
1 tucked the last pages of the
diary back in the portfolio. Writing
the pizza deliverer's story seemed
like a lot of work just to win a bit of
my uncle's approval. 1 deserved
more from him - something momentous, like a little humanily. I decided
to corner the wretch and, once and
for all, gel an honest sentiment about
the deceased driver, whose diary
he'd read, and whom he'd essentially buried days before. If he gave
me one of his trademark "shit happens" responses I'd strangle him.
"Look, Uncle Shep, just between you and me, that kid in the old
building, it upsets you he had lo go
like thai, right?" Shep stopped his
chewing, and considered my question. His facial expression softened.
Dear me, I thought, I'm getting my
answer. "Well," muttered my uncle,
"I mighta hired the little goof if he'd
have bothered to apply, let's say
that."
In fact it was the perfect Shep
non-answer. But it was enough.

JUNE 1990 15 Discorder: Are you on tour to promote a product or is this just a way to see the world?
Paula: Actually, it does coincide with releasing an album.
D: So what's the album called?
GPO: They're on Waxtrax and coming out on
the 25th of May. One of them which is the studio/song rock dance version is called "Towards the Infinite Beat." But simultaneously
with that is an album and CD of club remixes
called "Beyond the Infinite Beat."
D: I read somewhere that you consider Psychic
TV more of a literary concept as opposed to a
band, more a vehicle for your writing. But upstairs during the soundcheck you sounded
pretty hot. How can this be?
GPO: That's cause we're just brilliant anyway, (laughter) I mean, being a man of great
taste I have surrounded myself with incredibly
good musicians who don't want to be paid,
(laughter) It's true! That's the great error
people make. They assume that we're not
musical just because we're not obsessed, per
sc, with music as a career or as a holy grail.
Like when a junkie chases heroin he gets less of
a kick; a lot of music people chase music and
get less of a kick and you can see it in what they
do. Like tonight what you were listening to
were new Emax discs that Fred made that we'd
never heard before. The first time we heard
them were as he put them up on stage. Everything you heard was improvised straight away.
D: Is that true as well for your rap, your poelry?
GPO: Oh yeah. I mean I don't know what I'm
going to say. I've never heard it before. Whatever I was singing was made up as I was going.
D: Do you depend that spontaneity when you
perform?
GPO: I think it's really important for live
work. It's funny, I asked Fred what this new
one was called and he said it's called "Intoxication" and I've just finished reading a book on
intoxication. All the animals find ways to get
intoxicated from insects upwards. And it actually is a natural urge, a natural state of being for
every living being. And lhat most intoxicants
that human beings use, they observed animals
using them first and then copied it. But it apparently seems that most animals naturally stop at
a certain point. The fruits and the leaves that
they use are seasonal and it's a kind of annual
celebration. Whereas with human beings we
don't seem to have any built in filter. We love
the feeling of intoxication so much that it's
actually more natural for us to get high to the
point of killing ourselves by overdosing.
D: That isn't true of some native people. I
know of some native groups who use drugs in
a ritual fashion and are cool about their use. It's
not always a matter of abuse so maybe it's a
fact of Western socialization.
GPO: It might be Western socialization. It's
certainly true that with native Americans and
peyote it's built into passage of time and mythology and storytelling and so on. Therefore
it's naturally controlled by events and by the
seasons again, whether they be spiritual or
physical. But our society has broken down that
basic tribal unit, fragmented it, so there are no
longer those parameters.
D: Do you feel that there is a re-emergence
happening of tribal culture?
GPO: I think there is a re-emergence of an
extended family basis.
Paula: I don't think it ever went away. Basically what happened is that people, culturally,
went into different religious groups and that
was their reaction to becoming a tribal group,
but it was all unconscious and it always has
been and that's how it has grown and extended.
D: I've never been to England but I understand
that, as opposed to Canada, it's very tribal and
that maybe that's why such great music comes
from there; the immediacy of tribes.
GPO: It happens very quickly. We can see it
with music trends, that's true. We get hip hop
and there is usually a street style that goes with
it. There's usually a slang that grows incredibly fast. With the acid house lhat became deep
house and then il became ambient house and
now it's scally music which is Manchester.
Each one has it's looks and it's codes and that
happens and it always has from the mods and
the rockers in the sixties. But even within that,
the Manchester mods wore eye make-up that
was green and black pig skin hats whereas the
mods from Sheffield didn't. It's always been
that way.
D: Getting back to the words. How does your
song writing come about?
GPO: What I've realised about the way that I
work is that I never have any lyrics written
down. Even wilh the new album, I had to write
them down after it was recorded because I had
improvised them onto the master tape, for the
D: That's the troubadour.
GPO: Well it's also the storyteller. It goes
back to that tribal function. It goes back to the
middle iges when there would be the wandering storyteller/ minstrel who would have basic
mythological or allegorical stories and then
would interweave the events of the particular
place where they arrived and would use the
names of the locals to bring them into the story.
It was a long time before those were written
down. So I see us as being a part of that earlier
oral tradition which is where the verbal side of
music began. The musicians in the band play
the rhythmic, celebration, altered state, trance
part of music. So going back to caves with
people hitting bones and rocks to make rhythms
the rhythms meant different things like, "clap
pause clap" is a male rhythm and "clap clap
pause clap clap" is female. It's all part of native
culture. Everything is represented.
All the native rhythms have key meanings; male, female, daughter, son, earth, and so
on. As the rhythms change you're hearing a
rhythmic story. That's were it fuses. At the
same time as the music, the wise person of the
tribe would recount stories about about the
people, about the world, about the earth, about
their position and their beliefs, their legends,
their origins, and add that onto those rhythms.
That is basically all music ever was and is. It's
resonance really.
Fred: There is also a practical consideration
why we work this way. Why we don't sit down
and work out lyrics to go with songs is because
we live on two different continents.
D: You're American and you write the tunes
for the band.
Fred: I'm American and I can't spend a lot of
time in England so I do my writing at home. I
used to send tapes but now I don't even bother
and it's even more spontaneous.
D: So you just get together when you're touring or when you've got an recording project?
Paula: We don't rehearse.
Daniel: And that's a conscious decision not
just an accidental factor. It's a matter of deliberately withholding things so that when we are
together we've got the maximum amount of
spontaneity available and it makes the performance.
16 DISCORDER GPO: Like you said, we've got product com-
:. Which I personally feel is the most
e Psychic TV play at home product that
we've ever done in terms of the clues, and the
tiny stories woven into it, as well as the actual
rhythms and sounds. But it has a very particular function. It's made to function in a domestic
space. Playing in clubs is different. There about
much more physical changes and ecstatic
changes.
D: So when you're out there tonight you'll
want to primarily entertain people or do you
want to proselytize?
GPO: It's primarily about empathy. My private theory is that people in a club situation are
physically drawn into the music because of the
deep beats and the accessibility of beats. We
use what I call audibles instead of subliminals
which is Paula with all the mixing. She has
several hundred hours of tape and six cassette
decks which she, again, according to her feeling at the time mixes in this information. Now
all that information is selected by her based on
her perception of life; what she wants to speak
to people about; what she wants to satirize;
what kinds of collisions and contradictions she
wants to build in. She spins those through and
every night that's different. So at that level we
are proselytizing. She's telling people her
world and how she sees it.
I suspect that as people are attentive in one
way, with their ears or their bodies, in another
level what's being projected sound-wise has to
be going into their unconscious. So if they're
listening to the beat her information is going to
their unconscious and talking to that simultaneously. If they 're listening to her information,
their body is being unconsciously manipulated
and altered and stimulated by the rhythm. If
I'm also rapping, venting, or even doing the
comedian then that may at times be slipping
into the unconscious when their attention is
somewhere else. There are films and slides that
we show. So people may be watching those so
intently that all the sound washes into their
unconscious and effects it.
D: What I crave, as a person who watches a
show, is that I want all my senses occupied at
once. I want to be totally filled so that I can get
beyond my senses.
GPO: Beyond the infinite beat, (laughter)
D: Good title for an album. So these sounds
that you and Paula create are like triggers?
GPO: I believe that it's a pretty unique way that
we work but it's also an really obvious way.
That's why we originally called what we do
acid house and acid music, but we didn't mean
literally LSD; we meant acid attitude. In olher
words, the stimulation of all the senses as
completely as possible, simultaneously. Designed to produce the psychedelic experience
with the use of light, colour, and sound.
D: Timothy Leary would be very proud of you.
tapes today. Uhhh...Ragamuffin and James
Brown...lots and lots of James Brown.
Daniel: Philip Glass. Terry Riley. The
Beloved...have you heard about them?
Fred: "Ambient House" compilation. That's
about it, I don't listen to music when I'm writing and I don't really buy records much anyway.
Paula: I only listen to music when I'm driving
and I listen to Soul to Soul, Kate Bush... the
Hounds of Love, what else...the Fugs and the
sampled it four years ago because it seemed to
us that is wljat it is about; drumming up life.
You shouldn't be able to record it, or take it
home, or explain it to someone else afterwards.
D: Were you there?
GPO: You have to be there or not. On the bus
or off the bus. That's what it's is supposed to do
and that's what it originally did for most people
when they got into music. They went "wow, I
haven't felt this before" not " I haven't heard
this before" and that's the key. It should have
you feeling different to any way else you've
ever felt.
D: What music are you listening to these days?
GPO: I think you should ask everyone. You'll
learn more about the band by asking us all and
you might find it quite different.
D: Let's start with Tom.
Tom: I'm listening to Public Enemy's new
album. I just picked up a whole load of dub
GPO: You listen to the Fugs and the Troggs'
You sneaky girl. I've been mainly listening to
Moroccan Rai music but played on new technology so it's...awkward. I've had a policy this
year of not listening to anything in English so
that I only hear the way the sounds operate.
What words sounding a particular way effect
mc, so then I can find out more about what I'm
about.
D: You recently wrote one of two introductions to a new book about the works of Aleister
Crowley  called  "Portable  Darkness."  (The
other introduction was written by Robert Anton Wilson) How did that come about?
GPO: Well the way that came about was that
Kenneth Anger and Hymaneous Beta recommended me to write it. So then the publishers
rang me up and asked me if I'd dot it.
D: Why did you agree?
GPO: I agreed because I like to do the unex
pected. I mean, why not; and I got paid.
D: Last question. Any thoughts on the nine-
Paula: If you look at the end of the c
there has always been a turmoil culturally;
wars, etc. As we come towards the end of the
century we are coming towards the millennium. So, astrologically, and based on past
history there's going to be lots of confusion,
wars as there always are, and just an incredible
amount of change. That's what everyone can
look forward to really. It's going to happen
really fast. It's like everything points out to
you.
We went to the Western Wilderness
Committee down the road today who basically
say that it took millions and millions of years of
evolution to create this planet and the life
forms on it and in the past one hundred years,
more so the last forty-five years, we're managing to destroy it in this short space of time.
Since Einstein created the bomb people have
always believed that we would be destroyed by
that bomb but it's ironic really that we don't
need a bomb to destroy ourselves, we're doing
it ourselves.
GPO: We're drowning in our own shit. The
thing to remember is that human beings themselves are not that important in terms of the
planet. When we're all gone the sea will still
move in and out, the stones will still crumble,
there will be vegetation and an atmosphere of
some kind. We're nothing in infinity or whatever we can imagine. I think it's basically
arrogant of human beings to assume that our
destiny is of over riding importance. It's not.
The trick is to develop an alternative system.
First for your self and then for the people that
you love closest to you and then those next to
them and so on. /jfc

The Temple ov Psychick Youth
Discorder: What does it mean to be member of the Temple ov Psychick Youth?
CI2: There are different levels of what it means to be a member of the Temple ov Psychick Youth. We have
what we call allies which are people who are sympathetic but might not necessarily want to become
committed to just one type of thing and we consider them to be Psychic Youths. For example, the band and
the road crew, with the exception of Gen, Paula, and myself, no one is a so-called member of the Temple
ov Psychic Youth and yet the band works long hours, loses lots of sleep, and basically make no money most
of the time. So, in a sense, they are much more committed than somebody who might buy some records
and cut their hair funny. It's more a state of mind than a fact of membership.
D: So membership is not an obligation to become involved?
C12: We never request that people become members. We tell people ways that they can become more
involved and then we leave it up to them. We don't say that if you write something for one of our newsletters
then you have to become a member. We don't believe that.
D: Is there an initiation into the Temple of Psychick Youth?
C12: Yeah, yeah there is. I don't know how many people in your magazine will want to know, but basically
what we do is we have a ritual, on an individual level, on the twenty-third of the month at eleven p.m. which
is the twenty-third hour. Then people, in some way, create some sort of representation of a desire that they
have and usually we suggest that it's a sexual desire in the beginning, since that's the easiest one to know
what you want and also it's a litde less likely to ruin your life than a career change and also that you can
tell really quick if it worked and it's pretty easy to get out of, so it's not a permanent change. It's also a
very important one that most people are unsure of and have difficulty verbalizing so it's a good way to get
people started looking at their lives and themselves.
So anyway, you figure out some way of representing your desire visually or sonically or maybe a
combination of those and then you create an image of the particular thing that you want. A lot of people
just use words by writing something down on a piece of paper and then by concentrating on that desire they
are supposed to somehow bring themselves to orgasm and put a litde bil of sexual fluids on the representation and then to cut themselves and put some blood on it and maybe some spit and some hair. Basically,
people who understand paganism realise that what they've done is called the measure.
Those things are a representation of your self in a basic form and if you believe that those things have
power then you have also put a part of your soul into it. Then we ask lhat people mail it in. Many people
do this independently of the Temple ov Psychick Youth and don't really realise that this is a form of sexual
magick. The most amazing thing is that it works and that's what the Temple of Psychick Youth is all about,
what works. We do things that work. We don't look so much at broader context of the moral implications
of what we do or the social implications. We're looking at the results and we're also dealing with our own
personal moralities and our own personal values.
Focusing on sexual desires makes you realise that some of the things that you would really like to have
happen lo you are things that you would not like your mother to know that you would like to have happen
to you; so you start to get free of the conditioning of what's "right" and what's "wrong" in your sexuality.
This can be translated into a broader sense as well.
What the majority of people think is right or wrong may or may not be actually, on a more cosmic
scale, a right or wrong thing. Most people's really deep seated moralities are just opinions; they're not laws.
And we're trying to break through that to make reality a more individual thing and less based on consensus.
We are asking lhat people check things and push the limits of their morality and their values and their philosophical beliefs. To push them a little bit farther than the accepted norms to see if those values are just
inherited for no reason or whether there actually is a reason why there are taboos in our society.
D: Do you think that some people reading this will think that what you're saying is bad or evil?
GPO: We shouldn't be afraid of what people see as our dark side; in the end there is no difference. There
isn't a dark side that's different or bad. That's a kind of Christian idea designed to suppress our own
freedom.
And we're not talking about what people do to each other because that's kind of obvious. I think that
this whole game of telling people that it's bad to kill or it's bad to rape is a load of bullshit. It's so obvious.
Why do we keep being told ever day? Why is it battered at us? One can only assume it's a double message
which says, "We as the controllers of your perceptions, we as society, we as the conglomerates, rape, in
every sense of the word, spiritually, economically, physically; we kill en masse to disguise the fact that this
is opinion. We destroy, we alienate, we abuse."
So all the things lhat law is created about to deal with you and me as individuals; we don'l need those
laws. Instinctively, as children, we know what's not right and what is right in terms of the real essence. So
why are we being told that? We're being told it so we feel really guilty about what they're doing to us and
what they're tricking us into colluding in. So when you leam to be comfortable wilh the light off as well
as on, you leam to know yourself. £^>

Extricate
(Fontana/PolyGram)
Quite a catchy and diverse release from these veterans of thirteen years and
something like twenty records. This is their most obvious foray into electronics and
danceable music; Adrian
Sherwood and Coldcut help
out in the production and
mixing areas on a few songs.
"Arms Control Poseur" is a
very fine but incomprehensible song (which could also
be said about most of the rest
of the songs). MarkE. Smith's
voice in 'Telephone Thing"
made me think of Inspector
Clouseau. Don't worry about
the electronics obscuring The
Fall's sound because there is
no way you could mistake this
for a release by any other
band. However, it might disappoint fans of the earlier Fall
releases.

The Grinning Plowman
I Play Jupiter
(Carlyle Records)
I chose this record at
random having heard nothing
of the band beforehand. As I
listened to The Grinning
Plowman's "I Play Jupiter," it
was the first record that I had
really listened to. Not only
did I find most of the tracks
fascinating but I like the
band's attitude and approach
to the music. Fresh and relatively uninfluenced, although
I can sense some Joy Division, their approach is quite
unique.
Their music consists of
bass, guitar, drums, lead vocal with intermittent backups,
and some synth. The result is
a good album with some exceptional tracks.
The first track ."Radiator," is a fast-paced psychedelic nightmare of textural
images of a young man's first
love. "Magic House," the
third track on the first side, is
the expression of an introspective outlook on life that
took me five sessions to understand. This is the first song
that I've heard in a long while
that succeeds in defining
dreams.
The last of the standout
tracks is called "Pretas Opera." This song is perhaps
better listened to in a dark
room with a loved one nearby.
It's an emotional parade of
sensuality and suffocation.
The vocalist dwells on images
of violence against furniture.
If you can find it, this
album is worth buying.

New Electronic Music
(Elektra)
April 9, 1990. This is
excellent. I'm really glad I
listened to this. This is a
much-needed break from the
music that I've been listening
to. Maybe I should wait until
I've heard more than the first
10 seconds of the first track.
April 14, 1990. There
was no need to wait. "New
Electronic Music" is of the
genre of what John Cage essentially began in the 1930s,
not the drum machine powered, sequenced keyboard
stuff you usually hear.This is
a great sampling of what the
experimental electronic music scene is up to. Half of this
compilation was recorded live
at an electronic music festival
in New York City. The cassette gives a bit of background
on the new musical movement, begun by John Cage in
1939 with "Imaginary Landscape no. 1," Live Electronic
Music.
This cassette, over an
hour long, contains a very
diverse array of what of note
is happening: samplers, computers, and weird things such
as, "brainwave-excited percussion" (which isn't as
strange as it sounds if you
have any knowledge of medical equipment or MIDI).
I've listened to about one
hundred records in this vein
from the fifties, sixties and
seventies, and it's good to see
that the very cold, very calculated nature of the old stuff
has been lost and the sounds
and electronically treated
voices actually sound like mu-

Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.
New Funky Nation
(4th and Broadway/MCA)
The Los Angeles-based
Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E consists
of six big, multi-talented
brothers of Samoan heritage.
The Devoux brothers consist
of: Ganxsta' R?DD, E.K.A.,
King Roscoe, Godfather Rock
TE,' Don-L, and O.M.B.
Formerly gang members, the
Devouxs lost one brother in a
gang related incident which
became the turning point in
their lives. They now take an
uncompromising anti-gang
stance. However, their main
concern at the moment is their
career in music. "Wc was born
in the streets of L.A./ Where
the street ain't safe at night/
Between the beeper and the
rag we have chosen the mic
right." These lyrics sum it up
quite well.
Thrown off track by their
imposing physical bulk, I was
pleasantly surprised at the
diversity of the album. The
music ranges from danceable
tracks like "New Funky Nation" and "Raid" to even a
track for all thrash metal
heads, "Pickin' Up Metal."
Almost every track on the album is worth listening to
because of the great production from Joe "the Butcher'
Nicolo and Young MC's producers, the Dust Brothers, and
DJ, Tony G.
A definite must have

Professor Griff and the Last
Asiatic Disciples
Pawns in the Game
(LukeSkywalker)
Ifyou listen to rap and/or
have been following the Public Enemy "controversy," you
will know that Professor Griff
is Public Enemy's Minister of
Information and has his own
view of the way things are.
This solo record makes public
his views.
The first couple of songs
are pretty clean as far as radical expression goes and consist of sampled funky guitar,
big bass and high tuned snare
drum with plenty of samples
from past black leaders. There
are also a couple anti-drug
songs which could be confusing to those not familiar with
the way some rappers use/
abuse the English language.
The Last Asiatic Disciples (L.A.D.'s) save the record as far as rapping goes
since Griff's voice isn't really suited to it, and some of
his attempts at being funky
are laughable. (He tries some
James Brown-like grunts
which come across as someone clearing their throat.) On
the monologue entitled "Real

lems with his views. While he
claims to be writing a letter to
"the President," he is expressing his knowledge of how
white people have "dropped
atom bombs on the brown
man;" ("Dear Mr.
President...you've had it [the
Earth] now for what, 6000
years"). He makes claims
like, "you've tested your germ
warfare on black people of
America and throughout the
world"; "you've murdered
every prophet who has come
to you with a salvation
plan";and "I know now you
brought V.D., AIDS, syphilis,
gonorrhea, to the ends of the
Earth." Of course these are
some of the worst lines. I'm
trying to make a point. But
these aren't all of them.
Unlike some people involved with the Public Enemy
"controversy," I would not
want this recording banned or
censored because of the derogatory remarks made by
Griff. I would like other
people to listen to it and judge
it for themselves. This review

noid,   back
wards
Here'i
examples: "I 'm just a juvenile
with style...trying to avoid the
cause of being dumb, gifted,
and black." And "Never disband, get in the game plan, before the white fans get hold of
the Griff plan." You can find
better ones yourself.
Side two is clean for the
first few songs, mostly rapped
by the L.A.D.'s. I was quite
surprised to find about ten
Public Enemy samples on this
record, mostly of Chuck D,
including the whole rhythm
track of Public Enemy's
"Caught, Can I Get A Wit-
Griff gets back into the
monologue mode in "The
Word of God Griff." This is
where I have the most prob-
hasn't really dealt with the
music end of the record, but
neither has the artist. There is
nothing profound on this record like there are on Public
Enemy records, just a raving
lunatic who thinks he is being
tricky by "hiding" his message in a "rap" record and
dropping a lot of heavy
names. Don't believe this
hype.

The Victims
All  Loud  on  the  Western
Front
(Timberyard    Australian
Import)
When the punk/new
wave explosion of the late
seventies exploded to the four
corners of the globe, one of
the places it touched down
was Perth, Australia. Out of
this backwater came a band
called The Victims.
At this time, most of the
tional rock 'n' roll
lity seemed to only
really know about The Saints
and Radio Birdman. The Victims played the same quirky,
jerky noise as those bands but
they were less honed and extremely raw, as most of the
young punk bands were at the

Loud on the Western Front"
by the Triffids' David
McComb, a fan since he first
saw The Victims at age sixteen, tell of the inspiration
that would induce him to pick
up a guitar and try his hand at
this punk rock thing.
The Victims featured
two future Hoodoo Gurus:
singer and guitarist Dave
Faulkner and drummer James
Baker. The band was filled
out by bassist Rudolf V. Listening to this compilation of
singles one can
tell they lacked
proficiency bul

with unbridled
energy.
The band
only lasted for a
couple of years
and Baker and
Faulkner then
moved on to
Sydney lo make
Ihe "Stoneage
Romcos" album
and soon garner
an international
following as the
Hoodoos.
Although
this Victims album        sounds
rather dated, it is
a notable reflection of the independent   Australian   music
scene of the time.

Scratching the Whole 12"
(PolyGram)
Electrofunk from Montreal. Fortunately I don't
judge a record by what other
people say before I hear it
because contrary to what
other people say, I think that
this recording is better than
most other Canadian releases.
According to a Polygram info
sheet, the song "addresses the
grip religious beliefs can hold
over one's life." "Scratching

dancefloor hit.

JUNE 1990 19 The Wonder Stuff
Ihe Mission
The Commodore
Monday, May 7th
Yeah, so anyway, the
ticket says 10 p.m. so I show
up at quarter to and my beloved Wonder Stuff arc already half way through "Radio Ass Kiss." I ask someone
how long they've been on and
she says aboul fifteen minutes. My heart collapses.
Luckily, they played for about
another forty-five minutes
and then encored.
The newest Stuffies,
Martin Bell on fiddle and
bassist Paul Clifford, fit in
well on "Room 410" and
"Cartoon Boyfriend" from the
band's second LP "Hup."
Along with the familiar, the
crowd is treated to some new
material: the latest single,
"Circlesquare" (check out the
"Paranoia Mix" on the 12
inch), and with more honesty,
passion and anger than Billy
Idol's Generation X could
ever muster, John Lcnnon's
"Gimme Some Truth" (with
the firsl verse of "Jane Says"
by Jane's Addiction thrown in
for good measure). While
hctng stormed with requests
from the "excitable bunch of
fuckers," the ever cynical lead
Wonder, Miles Hunt, replies,
"You misunderstand, wc
choose the songs. That's why
you pay us."
Which is fine by I

about the evils
of sexual abuse
of children; quite haunting
and half of all I wanted to hear
from The Mission.

icky
uppy hair joins the band for a
passable version of The
Cure's "In Between Days,"
which proved to be the only
distinguishable song of The
Mission's section of the evening. I admit to only a passing
familiarity with their earlier
albums, but il seems that with
the exception of "Deliver
ancc" the band played the
same song nine times.
The puzzling thing is:
Why would anyone pair up
The Wonder Stuff and The
Mission for a tour? The Wonder Stuff play heavier guitar-
pop dealing with real, common emotions ("Don't Let Mc
Down Gently") whereas The
Mission offer pseudo-Goth
escapism ("Serpent's Egg").
Wayne Hussey and his
band arc like a religion - only
the truly devout get anything
out of them. They take themselves much loo seriously and
should listen to Miles Wonder

The Scramblers
The Commodore
Friday, May 11th
When was the last time
you went to a show that: a)
wasn't a benefit for world/
local hunger, the environment, or a band's stolen/burnt
equipment; b) didn't feature
any socially relevant songs or
messages; c) did feature gra-
dose of personal angst and
guilt.
The evening featured Elvis Love Child, the celebrated
reunion of The Braineaters,
"New York's original" Sissy
Boys, and local bad faves. The
Scramblers. Rock 'n" roll at
its worst and, of course, its
best, was offered to the alcohol saturated fans. What was
there for the screaming
crowd? Jim Cummins running
back and forth on stage and
throughout the audience; the
Sissy Boys, who proved that
hair spray and make-up really
do make the man; and The
Scramblers, who, sans
schtick, played with inspired
fervor and aggression.
It was fun for a night to
get covered in beer by musicians and fans who merged in
mutual appreciation. There
wasn't much to think about on
this night except to try and remember who you came with
and who you'd like to leave
with. And when the morning
after came, like the morning
after always does, you could
be comforted by the fact that
Whal

But what's this? So Superconductor aren't the onlj

skinheaded, the latter longhaired.
The band play a quite
gratifying set composed
largely of tunes from their

But substance
reigns over style; the two guitars, bass. Vox and drums deliver pulsating rock 'n' roll
(with a few perverse twists, of
course), and the lyrics are th-
inkworthy as well. And somewhere in the procession of encores,    Mr    Jacoby    goes
tuitous amounts of beer swilling, swearing and general medieval inspired party demeanor? The four band rock
'n' roll extravaganza at the
Commodore on May 11th
took the piss out of the "we
can save the world through
song" attitude that has taken
hold of rock 'n'roll like an incurable disease. For once,
rock 'n' roll was played for
nothing except what it really
is - a remedy for one's daily
your headache and dry mouth
were the result of hedonistic
musical pleasure. Nothing at
all redeemable. Just like rock

Bobby Watson and Horizon
Arts Club Revue Theater
Sunday, May 13th
What is it about jazz that
turns people off? I really don't
understand. Every time there
is a jazz concert or club I want to go to, everyone I know gets
sick or goes out of town for
the weekend or has two tests
and an essay for Monday and
I end up either not going or
more often going with my best
friend, myself. Well, when I
found out that Bobby Watson
and Horizon were coming to
Vancouver I was overjoyed.
This is a guy who stan-ed in
Art Blakey's infamous Jazz
Messengers and is currently
one of the hottest alto sax
players on the New York
scene. So even when I
couldn't convince/ bribe/
trade favours with anyone, I
still had to go to this concert!
The concert didn't go as
smoothly as I would have
liked due to a number of
glitches, including numerous
sound problems. At first Victor Lewis on drums and Ed Simon on piano were so loud
that all I could hear was a lot
of great piano and drums, but
no bass. The bass, while I'm
on the subject, was cool; Carroll Dashiell was using his
own patented electrified upright stick bass. When the
levels were finally adjusted
correctly the bass came alive.
A young guy
and definitely|
one of the top|
bassists of the,
present and the s
The other f.\
soloists were
also extremely
good. The piano player reminded me of a
harder Keith
Jarrett, lyrical
but with a tinge
of abrasive-
ness. Ed Simon's piano
playing was
also flawless,
but he had a really distracting
habit of glaring at the audience when the
others were soloing.
I had
never heard of
Victor Lewis,
so when the audience gave _
him a rousing _
round of ap- J
plause I was
surprised. I
found out that |
he is presently *
considered o
of the premier drummers in
the world, and that he played
with the late, great trumpeter
Woody Shaw for a number of
years. By the time he was fin
ished his first solo, I could tell
he was an expert. Lewis ranks
right up there with Tony Wil-
for the best present day
drum soloists
and overall
drummers. He
; great. Also
worth noting
his excel-
blame. I feel that if a group
has both a sax and a trumpet
they should both be used
equally, and should be aim
sound. At times he was hard,
choppy, smooth, graceful,
scaly, airy, happy, bouncy and
the list could go on and on. I
strumentally.
Well, it wasn't. Hml
I was not impressed by the
trumpeter until the last three
or four songs. Melton Mustafa, when you could hear him
over Watson's sax, was slow
and tentative throughout most
of the concert. I wanted him to
attack the music as Watson
out beat tripping was born.
The rcintroduction of all the
'60s paraphenalia like
strobes, slides, dry ice and ultra-violet lights
followed logically. Therefore,
Genesis P-Orridge
is either a genius
a lot to answer for, depending on your feelings about acid
house.
I guess the
same could be said
about people's reactions lo Psychic
TV's set. Acid
house in the U.K.
is undeniably the
biggest youth music movement
since punk. It also
shares many char-
battling each other. Two gi
examples are Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry, and
Charlie Parker and Miles
Davis. Even though the sax is
the premier instrument, the
trumpet should challenge it,
and   I   didn't  hear   Mustafa
ch al 1
n g e
did, but he preferred to remain in a secondary position.
This might have been the
game plan for the group, and
if it was, Bobby Watson is to
enough. Also,
his solos weren't upbeat
enough.    Wat-
his solo with an
up tempo flourish, leaving the
crowd wanting
more. However,
Mustafa would
then slow the
tempo down.
On the positive
side, for the last
two or three
songs Mustafa
was great, doing
exactly what I
wanted him to
do throughout.
He really attacked and was
Watson's equal.
Finally, the
leader, Bobby
Watson. He was
everything you
could want in a
sax player. Unlike most, he
doesn't copy
the styles of others. Although at
times Watson
sounded somewhat like Benny
Carter, Sonny
Rollins, Cannonball Adder-
ely and Eric Dolphy, instead
ol copying one of these greats,
he combined these already la-
was also extremely impressed
with the speed of his playing
and his adeptness at tempo
and style changes.
Overall, it was
a great jazz experience. I didn't mind
going alone because
I was so engrossed
in the music. I was
captivated. Bobby
Watson's new album is called "The
Inventor," on Blue
note records.

Psychic TV
Town Pump
Monday, May 21st
THE DRUG
TAKING HAS
STARTED. With
this spoken word
sample loop, Psychic TV launched
into a two hour plus,
high volume assault
on the senses, turning the Town Pump
inlo an acid house
rave. If you believe
Psychic TV main-
man Genesis P-Orridge (and why
wouldn't you believe a man with a
name like that), he
was single-handedly
responsible for the
whole English acid
house phenomenon.
It was inspired
by a mis-reading of a houst
record he picked up in Chicago. The D. J.s there were using the word "acid" to denote
sampling in a record (from
"acid burn," meaning rip-off).
Of course Genesis took it on
face value as meaning LSD
and the idea of hours of spaced
vhisticr punk. It's easy,
anyone can do it; it's widely
criticized for "not being music";   and   the   movement
Psychic TV was there
from the start, before all the
hype. According to Genesis,
acid house is the logical end
to Psychic TVs sound explorations, coupling hypnotic
beats with overt and subliminal messages and plenty of
noise. Starting with vocal and
noise samples from the rack
of six tape decks operated by
Paula P-Orridge (Mistress
Mix), a taped beat kicked in
which was then added to by
the musicians and Genesis'
patent "Mick Jagger meets the
Spanish Inquisition" vocals.
The songs were long and usually they evolved inlo a frantic groove, drummer and tape
combined, Fred Gianelli's
guitar sending out waves of
flanged feedback, changing
little but growing in intensity.
Genesis would stop singing
and wander into the audience
to join in the dancing. The
backdrop was lit with slides
and films of startlingly disparate objects and art.
The audience
reacted positively to this
bombardment
and the Town
Pump's finy
dancefloor was
crammed, causing several

24 DISCORDER I have my roommate/best
friend to thank for converting
me into a tea-drinker. Did I
say "thank"? Make that - slavishly worship, hail, heap
gratitude upon - and curse
from the depths of my bladder. Yep, tea'll do that to you,
if nothing else. As I write this,
I'm downing herbal peppermint tea, so the effect is mitigated; but dang, any tea worth
its salt'll make your bladder
buckle down to business, no
two ways about it.
Salt. Tea worth its salt.
The nomadic tribes of horsemen in northern Afghanistan
use salt in their tea in place of
sugar, being as how sugar is
impossible to procure in any
quantity up in them thar
mountains. I however am of
the "drinking tea straight," no
sugar, no milk, school, though
I didn't start out that way.
M
lope,
lumper for a coupla years at
first, till I read George Orwell's hyper-uptight essay on
Proper Tea-Drinking wherein
he rails at length against adulterating one's brew with other
substances. "What a lot of
rot," I thought smugly behind
decaying teeth. But whaddya
know, six months or so later, I
took that momentous first step
and tried a cup of tea without
sugar and hey, I was on the
road to purist tea ingestion.
Milk in tea I can take or
leave, but much oftener leave.
When I do on rare occasion
use it - if I'm feeling in need
of comfort, for example - the
milk always gets pourn in
first. Ritual is everything,
nowhere moreso than in tea-
drinking.
Honey or lemon juice or
that sparkly, coarse kind of
unrefined sugar can be added
to tea also, but tea straight up
is where it's at.
What the tea is made in is
a question of vital import.
There's a certain taste to it
when you have it in one of
those little stainless steel pots
like what most restaurants
use; a sort of tinny, metallic
aftertaste that enhances the
experience if you're in a
greasy-spoon or something.
Mind though, the setting has
to be right. Experts concur -
and for once they're right -
that earthenware/ceramic is
the best thing for it. I know a
plain old Brown Betty has tea-
brewing capacities unequalled by anything on the
face of this earth. Making the
tea in an enamel teakettle
again lends it a distinctive
flavour; you get strong, unrepentant, but sort of iron-y
tasting tea-age. The basic one

-TODAV
mug-o-tca method, just pouring boiling water over a bag in
your cup, works swell as long
as you leave the teabag in long
enough only to brew the perfect strength; one second too
long and you're doomed.
Leaves vs. bags? Well,
even the venerable Mr. Orwell passed over this question
- in his day and age teabags
had not yet gained the supremacy they now enjoy, so he saw
nothing to rail against there.
Loose tea certainly makes a
world of difference taste wise,
but not necessarily for the
better... it all depends on the
individual brand.
Speaking of loose tea, a
great kind to try when you feel
like a splurge is Jackson's of
Piccadilly Earl Grey. A 50g
tin is, like, $3.65 at Galloway's, so not for everyday
usage. But well worth the
budget-wrecking.    Groovy
The King of Earl Grey -
which is in itself King of Tea
Varieties (waitaminute, this is
getting too convoluted...) is
unequivocally Twinings. And
something really cool of late,
they've changed the lettering
on the individual packets from
black to brown. (Well hey, it's
the small things in life that
count.) One swallow of Twinings Earl Grey does an admirable job of blasting you
straight back to Zen in its
heyday. Even devoid of such
associations, it's one fucking
harsh tea. Plus, lately London
Drugs has been selling the
50's boxes at utopically cheap
prices...$3.18, $3.28...Life is
good.
Not so good, on the other
hand. Last time I was out to
Hell to pick up another 400's
box of PG Tips in the bulk-
place there, THEY DIDN'T
HAVE 'EM ANYMORE. Not
only that, but some weird kid
was making strange gestures
and noises at mc over the
stacks of Tetra-Pak caselots.
So I had to settle for the 144's
size at $5.98 or something, a
rip-off compared to the 400's
which were $7.88.
Twinings Orange Pekoe is the only brand of that
variety that remotely measures up to PG Tips when it
comes to taste, although in
price the former exceeds the
latter. Lemon-scented, Dar-
jeeling, Irish Breakfast,
Lapsang Souchong...how
these magical Twinings flavours roll off the tongue like
some sacred incantation. Try
them all, I advise.
Murchies' teas I'm not
too familiar with, but I do
know they make an unsurpassed Blackcurrant; nor
does their Earl Grey suck.
Other noteworthy brands include: Stash (whose Earl
Grey instantly conjures France's Deli for me), Celestial
Seasonings-their Red
Zinger rules, and Blgelow,
makers of another
drinkworthy Earl Grey. The
Afghan Horsemen on West
Broadway serves this really
wacky cardamom tea; I highly
recommend it.
Few greater joys can life
supply than a full pot of tea
before one and a handy toilet.
Thanks, Car.

&;a*+j_£?/7 Big Numbers #1      $6.95
By   Alan   Moore   and   Bill
Sienkitv.ii/.
Published   by   Mad   Love
(Publishing) Ltd.
"Alan Moore knows the
score," or so say those mutant
musicians collectively known
as Pop Will Eat Itself. I'm
sure more than a few of you
relentless readers arc scratch
ing your heads and wonder
ing, "Hey, just who is this
Alan Moore fella anyway."
In the land of comics,
Alan Moore is a name to be
spoken in the hushed tones
that are usually reserved for
thc genetically superior
among us, such as rock stars,
astralnauts, and/or game
show hosts. An Englishman,
who straddles the  Atlantic
these days, Moore has argua
bly made the biggest impact
on tlie pop paper scene since
the   arrival   of   the   graphic
novel.
Back in his salad days,
Alan  Mot
iting  I
scries called V for Vendetta
which was published in England alongside the infamous
Judge Dread. V caught the attention of a big publishing
house (DC) and Moore wa.s
soon scripting the monthly adventures ofthe Swamp Thing.

worked, and soon after Moore
was declared to have the
golden touch. Not long after,
these same executives granted
Moore the brass ring in corporate comicland; creative freedom in writing and directing a
major (12-part) miniscries.
Watchmen say      it
slowly, with reverence. The
most important comic of the
previous decade in all ways
lhat count. Fresh and innovative, rich and complex.
Watchmen changed the
course of comix in many
ways. The most original clement of the scries was the way
in which visual references
were spread throughout the
episodes, allowing for a full
effect to grow and expand
with each subsequent issue.
The most lasting impact was
the way in which Moore sav
aged the tuperheio/god myth
m the hallowed halls of its
most ardent proponent. Demonstrating his complete dis
taste for while male politics
with an eagle eye portrayal of
these big boys and their
deadly toys, Moore confounded his critics and added
serious numbers to his growing legions of admirers.
Around this time, a new
phrase was heard floating in
the air around ihc major comic
book publishing companies.

after creating Spiderman,
Hulk, etc., was not allowed to
keep his original artwork,
much less share in the profits
of his creations. In the mid
late eighties this practice was
ripe for change and Alan
Moore was in the thick of the
creator's revolt. This revolution in business practices allowed Moore the financial
security to take some time off
to sort himself out and assess
his   newfound   readership
teach about alternate (gay)
lifestyles. AARGH! stands
for Artists Against Rampant
Government Homophobia!
and came about after ihe
Thatcher government tried to
ban a book being taught in
London schools which featured a boy growing up in a
house with two men, one his
father, who were homosexual.
Clause 28 was designed to
snuff out this kind of homo-
pinko teaching once and for
Rolling Stone) and looks to be
as big as Watchmen. Teaming
up with the surrealistic/multimedia pencil wizard Bill Sien-
kiewicz, Moore has devised a
comix entertainment lhat features no less than forty characters and multiple plotlines.
The basic story, so far, is
about a young woman writer
who returns home to the small
English town in which she
was raised to find her family
oddly unaffected by her success in the big city. Simultaneously, across the ocean in
the States, a major real estate
developer is planning to disrupt the tranquility of this
village with the construction
of a supermall that will be the
pride of bankers everywhere.
The portrayal of the village
characters is even-handed and
true to their working class
roots while the developers are
shown to be vital and intelligent without the usual fangs
that this sort must have to
appeal io public sentiment.
Moore is not giving anything
away in the first issue, pausing from his setting the scene
in Hampton only to crinkle
the plot towards future developments (ouch!). It is in his
excellent portraits of working
class dreams and nightmares
that Moore shows us his genius for observing the lives of
issue is done entirely in black
and white but rumour has it
that each issue is to become
progressively more colourful
as the series goes on, sort of
like the Wizard of Oz in ex-
Sienkiewicz has an
amazing ability to portray
emotion within a two-dimensional medium, reaching far
into our minds to pull out the
memory of the expression we
are witnessing. His rendering
of the writer's mom is a classic image, mixing the fear and
loathing of modern decay
with a loving apprehension
surrounding the return of the
prodigal daughter. Such mastery is rare and ever welcome
in a medium that seems fascinated with static torso one-
shots and bloodvessel close-
ups. His deft hand with sets
and signage is intrinsic to the
overall quality ofthe book and
bodes well for the more poetic
As if transported to another time and place, Sicn-
kiewicz allows the reader to
view the inside of the character's reality by choosing his
filters carefully and focusing
on feelings rather than empty

rection Swamp Thing was reborn as a living example of
environmental mismanagement. The book took off like a
seven stage rocket. Sales of
this previously poor selling
title began to outpace the
usual DC fan fodder and the
executives in charge of that
sort of thing started asking
him to contribute stories to
their more traditional titles,
like Superman, in an effort to
bolster sagging sales. It
26 DISCORDER
The phrase, which intrigued
artists and bewildered executives, was "Creators' Rights."
It served as a rallying cry for
those who were ready for
change. The idea of creators'
rights was that the artists involved in a project should
share in the benefits if their
creations became popular and
made millions of dollars. The
history of corporate comics is
filled with stories like the one
told about Jack Kirby, who,
base. In doing so, he realised
he had only one option; to
start his own publishing company. And thus begins the
story of Mad Love (Publishing).
The first Mad Love project was AARGH!, a benefit
comic designed to promote
tolerance and to fund the
battle against a certain malevolent clause 28 of a British
education bill that would
make it a criminal offence to
all and AARGH! was the true
beginning of Alan Moore's
ongoing battle with the forces
of techno-imperialism masquerading in the guise of
friendly democracy. Which
brings us to the point of this
rather long winded introduction; that being the second and
latest offering from Mad
Love, the enigmatically title,
Big Numbers.
Big Numbers has already
gathered major press (Spin,
typical people. No simple
one-dimensional rip-offs
here; these characters live and
breath the same air that we do
and after 40 pages we are
involved and concerned for
their welfare.
Sienkiewicz has a powerful influence on the proceedings with his found images filtering through the
hyperdelic cartoon atmosphere he creates with pencils
and watercolours. (The first
Laden with far reaching
(archetypical) dream sequences and the subtle nuance
that have become Moore's
trademark. Big Numbers has
the look and feel of apowerful
graphic series that will encourage the reader to grow
with each successive issue. I
heartily recommend that the
more urbane among us catch
the wave before the curl is
upon us. Alan Moore not only
knows the score; he wrote it. DiSCORDER        DATEBOOK
