Thanks to Sen Yoshitsuru for this month's cover.
Like the band hunting down the stolen mic from the
dog, we are also hunting for an editor. Special
thanks to our retired editor, Dylan, who devoted the
past two years to this mag. Don't hit your ass on
the door on the way out!
Every month, production on this magazine gets
squeezed into a tighter and tighter schedule, as
we sit in front of our computers, sleepless and
listening to awful music. And for what?
Because we love you!

IN STORES JUNE 121 cowshead chronicles
dedicated to robyn
over the years i have told many stories, i have related the very inner workings of my
life in this, the cowshead chronicles, and have felt that i have given to you, the
reader, my soul, stories about my father, which he has never read, related, through
both fiction and non-fiction, the workings of my personal life, I have told you, more
times than I can remember, more that I maybe should have, but, you know, i wouldn't
take it back for anything, because, by design, the stories were really about you and
what you're all about, the things i write of happen to everyone but not all of us can
be honest and tell the stories of our lives as much as we want to sometimes, we all
have great heartbreak, sorrow, despair, happiness and all the other speakable and
unspeakable emotions, why can't we tell our friends how we feel? why can't we ask
for help when we need it? i know, for myself, that i find it so much easier to write a
story relating some sort of emotion than i do sitting down with someone and letting it all out. and as i sit here now with a half empty pack of Winston's and an
empty glass of what was water, i wonder why last week i almost sent my father a
story i wrote about him but didn't, fearing the worst, what would he think? maybe it
was better he never knew about it. i also wrote a cowshead about something highly
personal where i didn't hide the truth behind fake names and places but felt that it
was better that i didn't send it in because of all the shit that would fly because of
it. and those who did read it felt the same way. i have never meant to hang my dirty
laundry out in the cowshead. although, i must admit, the cowshead is meant as a
chronicle of my life as it relates to others, but, those of you who read it are suppose
to get something out for yourself as well, a recent story about my relationship with
my father affected more than a few people, i was surprised, in fact, by the impact i
had on some people, but then again if i can evoke that sort of emotion in anyone i'm
happy because, then i know what i'm doing has a reason deep down and isn't done
purely in vain, i have many more stories to tell but i just felt that this month i would
explain myself a little, there are things we all need to say, things we all need to do.
and by observing those things i can relate them, remember, it's okay to tell people
how you feel, to let people know where you're at. to tell people you need them, to tell
people you love them, it's just not always easy, this i know,

'The Monkees will leave absolutely no mark on American Music."
• Crawdaddy Magazir feto.
Music was once about performing for it's own sake, if not for cultural ritual.
Introducing money to tfie art-form changed it forever - tfiis much you know already, right? Lots of
people (including myself) have often complained
about the commercialism surrounding Music West:
that it's all about "getting signed"; that it's all about
making the most money with me music you're making (and making music to make the most money).
This attitude still has a high priority within the conference itself (for example, the seminar on purchasing independent labels), and in many ways
led to initiation of fhe counter-Music West fest,
Music Waste. However, after the weekend was
over it occurred to me lhat Music West is responsible for more than making itself some grandiose
event to show off scxalled "talent". It was responsible for a lot of music for music's sake.
My weekend began on Thursday
May 2nd with the arrival of some friends from
Calgary, and a trip to CiTR to see Radioblaster and
Speedbuggy, both of whom were in Music West,
but also were playing live on-air that night.
Radioblaster took their name from a Thrush Hermit
song, and their sound is aptly comparable to their
namesakes, perhaps a little less rocky, and a little
more poppy. As a three-piece with male and
female vocals, guitar, bass and drums, they are
probably heirs to the throne of indie rock stardom
in Toronto after their contemporaries Treble
Charger. Speedbuggy followed with a loose
impromptu mini-set which I was only able to hear
from my car stereo, as I was then racing downtown
to catch Spacekid at Route 66.
This was my first real interaction with Music
West '96, and I suppose it was typical of many
shows: sparse attendance in a smoky bar with one
or two individuals who stuck out like the industry
insiders ihey were, wilh their posturing and clothing
- standing by themselves, slicked-back hair and
leather jackets, maybe cowboy boots on their feet.
Spacekid was a band I had only heard on tape, a
quartet with a power pop sound, fairly typical of
the bands I was interested in seeing this year.
Maybe it was the high expectations I had for the
bond, but a combination of factors including a
6     JUNE 1996
bad, overwhelming loud sound mix and a faulty
guitar diminished their impact. However,
Spacekid showed lots of promise, with strength
as a band and a healthy dose of 80's nostalgia
(for example, their cover of "Manic Monday") to
catch your attention.
By now it was quarter to midnight, and so I
went off to the Commodore to see Guided By
Voices, a band I was convinced to be a combination of such 70's groups as Bad Company, and I
wanted to see if this impression held true.
Unfortunately, some ill-planning on the part of
Music West (or perhaps mis-guided greed on the
part of whomever collected ticket revenues) made it
impossible for me and about a half dozen other
media-types from ihe Province and the Sun to get in
with our accreditation wristbands. Only 200 wristband holders were allowed admission, and everyone else had to buy individual tickets to get in.
What this meant was that even though the venue
was far from full, the only way to get in would have
been to buy a $13 ticket. Not that I'm crying for
media-types who didn't pay for their wristbands to
begin with, but for festival goers who bought wristbands for 30-something dollars were
boat. I went home for the evening to get ready for
another busy musical day to follow.
Friday night's line-ups definitely held some interest for me, both the Real McKenzies at the
Town Pump and the Mint-Lookout Records'
showcase at the Gastown Music Hall, featuring Duo-Tang, the Smugglers and others.
However, except for a brief foray into the
Starfish Room to see Toronto's Len (who I
watched for a dull   10 minutes, which
seemed to improve just as I was leaving),
my evening had little to do with Music
West. Instead I attended a relatively low-
profile rehearsal-space gig in Yaletown
including Kaneva, the Electrosonics, the
Liars, Radioblaster and others. By the time
Kaneva began, a sizable number of people began to converge in the
"venue", and those in attendance heard
an excellent sampling of the group's
repertoire, with droning pop
beneath female vocals. The warmth of
their sound was like a musical bonfire
to warm your giblets. Four song:
hardly enough, but so many band;
were left to perform. Next
Liars, a post-punk power trio \
raunchy, punchy sound with fen
energy and great songs to boot.
Other bands followed, but by
was starting to wear thin from all the
volume and the smoke I'd been
exposed to in only two days.
Saturday offered a show with
more hype than just about any so
far this year: Stereolab headlining a bill that
was advertised as including Pure and Cinderpop.
However, it seemed like the bulk of the crowd
knew lhat one other band would be making a "surprise" appearance, itie sometimes-defunct-sometimes-together Sloan. Cinderpop were first
on-stage around 9:45, and I really wasn't in a
mood to see them knowing that it was just delaying Sloan's performance. I suppose they weren't
bad, but they weren't anything to get my mind off
of the fact that two of my favorite bands (Sloan
and Stereolab) were going to be on only after the
first two groups were finished. Cinderpop lives up
to its name though, with songs reminiscent of
Crowded House, Matthew Sweet, etc, elc. I'll have
give them another look before I can pass any
judgment. About an hour and fifteen minutes later,
it was announced lhat Pure wouldn't be performing because of a medical emergency. Fortunately
for the people in attendance (practically all of
whom appeared to be there for Sloan) this
allowed everyone's favorite Haligonians to play a
slightly longer set of mostly new material. The
group has managed to maintain their incredible
energy and chemistry that made them such an
incredible live band. The new songs from a forthcoming album were also very good, at least at par
with their previous recordings. To hear them, it
seems mat Vancouver's Zumpano may have had
some impact on Sloan's songwriting, as there was
a lot of that kind of swinging rhythm present, in
the style of Penny Lane era Beatles. As great as
the band was, it's unfortunate that the show was in
a bar: the audience just could not respond with
the energy lhat came even close to approaching
what was seen last time they played here at the
Howden Ballroom. Aside from that, the performance was a highlight only to be rivaled by what
followed, an intense performance by Stereolab.
Concentration on the music was as blindingly
intense on the eyes as it was the ears such lhat I
could almost have lost sense of when and where I
was. My senses were so overwhelmed that I had
just about had enough of shows for the weekend,
but there was still one more band I had to see on
the final night of the weekend, The Readymade.
Upon entering the Gate, the bar in the Hotel
California, I felt sort of like I was in the old Lunatic
Fringe, mostly because of its look, which resembled
an 80's style rock bar in many ways with its high
stage and supporting pillars all around. However,
it made a decent-enough location for this show,
where the Readymade were playing with
Speedbuggy and Ringpiece. Starting their set with
a Joy Division cover, the band's long songs provided a great soundtrack to the images projected
behind them, theirs was music to wallow in. Almost
I was disappointed not to have seen any of Music
Waste, which offered almost as many bands as the
Music West festival itself did!
That so much is happening is really a testament
to Music West and its impact on Vancouver's music
scene. Even if I only went to a handful of their
shows, all the rest of the events that went o
a result of the kickstart Music West has brought to
Vancouver each May for the last few years. I'm
glad Music West is here because in so many
ways, it's led to musical events occurring for no
itself, and

DiSCORDER: Alright, first of all,
there's got to be some things that
yon just don't wanna talk about,
what are they?
Reverend Horton Heat: Lemmee see..well,
politics, religion, my medical history...uh,
just about anything else thats' none ah yer
damn business.
So like in the song, "Sails of
Cocaine" where you say you gave "A
sample to yer crazy brother Joe" you
really did just give him a sample,
sold the rest and thats' the end of
the story. Are you the King
of 'White Trash'?
I don't think
terms of me
being 'The
king' no, but
as far as
consciously trying to
go for that,
no...l have
been white trash,
I'm not anymore
though. Like that song "Bails
of Cocaine", I was out there cuttin' brush
and this jet airplane comes flying over like
about a hundred feet VRMMM!, some military jet, and I was just thinking, 'Wouldn't it
be great if that plane just dropped a bunch
of cocaine right now and I took it to Dallas
and sold it.' So yeah, I get ideas of the
whole white trash thing.
Were you cutting brush because you
grew up on a form?
I didn't grow upon no farm, but I've had a
lot of different jobs in my life. My dad
worked for this oil company and we lived
in San Antonio and Corpus Christi and
those towns are more like nouveaux riche
and blue collar, but it's all still cause of oil
and the navy. My highschool was 78%
Mexican American, so that had a big influence on what went on.
(Talk on racial integration )
Yeah, it was almost like things were more
open minded back then than they are now.
My first band was all Mexican American,
we were called Chantilly Lace and we were
a fifties cover band. It was a whole family,
and the sister, she used to sing real good,
she sang songs like, "Soldier Boy" and the
Dad could play like Hendrix on his guitar,
he was like just this jolly old Mexican man,
he could play and he'd be all like, 'I bet I'm
freakin' you out that I can play this' and
laughing and everything... but there's this
one guitar solo that we did, "Rock Around
the Clock" and to this day thafs still one
of the fastest, coolest guitar solos ever,
and when that song came up the saxa-
phone player would come over and play my
guitar cause I couldn't play that solo and I'd
just be sittin' there goin, 'Damn, I wish I
knew that solo'. I'm playin' it on the new
record (July 16th is the release date) so I
finally got to play that
fucking solo..
(Starts plugging
record.) Recently I've been having a
cold, and I've often been without
Kleenex on the streets, so I've been
doing the 'former blow'.
Farmer blow? What is that?
It's like when you hold your nostril like this (demonstrates tactic)
and you blow the excess of snot
out and it shoots out like a cannon
right, and like I just notice sometimes when I'm with a guy my age
or something, y'know he'll get
upset, and I was just wondering,
y'know if well... do you think it's
wrong, when you have a build up
of... I guess it's a manners thing..
Do I think ifs wrong for a girl to blow snot
outta her nose? (giggles)
Yeah, like is it unappealing?
Uh, no, no, but my question is, what do
you do with the cup?
Oh I just blow it out on the street.
Oh you blow it out on the street well then
I don't know, I don't think that would be

Your song "Pickled Lenin"
hii-i-*-** of the man's demise.
How exactly was Lenin killed?
Didn't he try to scratch
himself out of an iceblock?
Mousey: Lenin died in 1922. He was a small
man, like many other important people. He
died of a stroke, but I'm not sure he didn't
die in ice. I visited him in Red Square; he
lives there ten months out of the year. His
coffin is glass so you can see his face and
his hands. He doesn't look peaceful, only
cross and under the weather. He spends two
months out of every year in Formaldahyde.
Lenin's wife asked Stalin to bury Lenin but
Stalin had bigger plans. Stalin also used to
stay in there with Lenin but he was a larger
man and took up too much room. They put
him in the ground. That's where he belongs,
if you ask me.

What's the story behind the
guy who put all the cigarette
burns on Rich's amp?
R: I guess he wanted to play some real
smokin' guitar solos...Actually, _—-
the story I heard is that
jazz guitarist Henry
Young - who used to
own my Fender Twin
amp - played all kindsa
R&B dives in Vancouver
in the'60s. The clubs
didn't even have ashtrays so
the butts had to go on top of the amp
whe he was playin' guitar. There are even
burns down the side of the amp - some of
the stages were so small that it had to be
stood on its end to fit on the stage. I also
heard the amp went over to Europe and
Africa with Henry when he back up Nina
Simone, so it has quite a history.
Describe the importance of the
Pharaohs, a 1960s Victoria
surf band, on the Surfdusters?
What was Campbell River like
back then?
R: The Pharaohs were five Victoria guys who
played UVic frat parties and southern
Vancouver Island dances in the early '60s.
They cut vocal 45s as Peter Kelch but it's
their two instrumental singles that turned us
on! "The Friendly Martian" b/w "Unknown
Planet" released on the California
Chattahoochee label are two cool
rockers...great surf and Ventures-like
demented guitar with cheesey organ and
sax...We're learnin' "The Friendly Martian"
right now...one of the goals is to re-release
their singles plus some rehearsal tapes
rumoured to exist. Campbell River was my
hometown and I was a drummer and singer
in several '60s garage punk and rockabilly
bands such as The Blue Knights & The
Creations.-.played lotsa instruments too!
Gigs were at community halls, high schools,
logging camps and wild house and beach
parties. No clubs except the Legions were
around then & we had to travel long
distances by van or ferry to play the dances -
beer, fights and rock 'n' roll.
Why aren't Shadowy Men on a
Shadowy Planet a surf band?
R: That should be weren't...they broke up last
year. Shadowy guys didn't use a lot of chunka
chunka double pickin' & reverb
surftones...and like they always told the
press & their record says: "We're Not a
Suckin' Surf Band". The media likes to call
all rock instro bands surf bands -
en though there are lots of genres
instro music. The Surfdusters
aren't really purists either
-well, our first three
years with Ralph
Johnston on lead guitar-
75% of what we played
was in the surf vein
like Dick Dale, The
Astronauts, Jon &
Nightriders etc. Then,
we got more experimental & absorbed Ralph's
influence and
now, with Scott on lead & Grant on bass,
we've got back to a ruffer surf garage sound
with some country twang thrown in.
Can you give a brief history of
the British Columbia
Instrumental Rock Scene from
the 1950s to the present!
R: The earliest B.C. bands rleasing instros
were mostly country-based such as Tex
Pedersen & The Sunset Ramblers
'Rockalene' on Aragon and the killer guitar
instro 'Tarantula' by bob Regan (of the
Canadian Sweethearts) on Gene Autry's label
Challenge - whammy bar madness!! Then,
in the early '60s, you had some instros put
out by Vancouver R&B bands such as The Hi-
fives' "Fujikami the Warrior" & Little Daddie
& the Bachelors' "Junior Jerk" (written by
Tommy Chong) - also B.C. bands influenced
by England's Shadows such as Prince
George's Pacers release of "Windjammer"
(on RCA) and The Chessmen's
"Meadowlands" (on London). No surf sounds
although the Canadian VIP's "Monsoon"
albums came outta this time. From the late
'60s to late '80s, B.C. rock instros were
either hidden away with the vocals on
obscure country albums (such as Kamloops'
Thompson Valley Boys LPs), rock'n'roll
albums (check out Teen Angel blues-based
numbers such as The Powder blues instro B-
sides of their 45s. The Surfdusters, The
g     JUNE 1996 Falcons and Mark Brodie & The Beaver
Patrol have brought the twang & surf
sounds into the '90s on their mostly original
and all instro 45s, from a few curiosity
seekers and record collectors who came to
the infrequent opening gigs to a lotta people
diggin' & dancin' to our instro sounds. Hey,
the show at the Commodore in 1993 featuring us, The Falcons & Dick Dale was the
first all-rock instrumental show in B.C. as
far as I can tell!
Wow! How many books have
you written, Rich? How is
your magazine Livewire
doing? Where is it available?
What is in the NEW issue?
R: I wrote 2 discographies of Canadian &
American instrumental records - both outta
print now - I'm workin' on a massive discography that'll be the bible of instrumental
records - should be out next year. I also put
out Livewire - a quarterly instro fanzine - got
subscribers in 10 countries now. After 10
issues, it's startin' to take off - get it at
Track or Scratch Record stores. This issue
has a story of '60s psychosurfmeister Merrell
Fankhauser & his California surf band The
Impacts, the Melody Maker's story of some
teenagers from Montreal in the '60s and
their instro record plus over a hundred
reviews of new and old instro releases. Get it
while it's HOT!
I see your guitarist Scott
wrote a toon
Motel"...did Scott
really go to
Turkey? How
sleazy was
the Motel?
S: I was in Turkey
last summer and
there were stray cats
living on the roof ofthe
motel we stayed at & they crawled into
the room at night. This was at Marmaris
where we laid on the beach all day -
heard an Arabic rock version of
"Miserlou" on the radio.
Besides playing in The Worst,
what's Grant's musical
background? Wasn't he on
stage somewhere like 20 years
G: Yes, back in a different era, I could be
found in seedy clubs and cobwebbed basements playing highly unpopular forms of
punk and garage music ranging from a
handful of originals to obscure B-sides by
the Sonics, Yardbirds & Ugly Ducklings...!
destroyed my first guitar - a Link Wray
Danelectro - during "Boris the Spider".
Is there anything good about
Peavey amps?
S: Not really - they're good at blowing up!
Although I play through one right now, I don't
endorse them -1 don't have enough money to
buy a Fender.
Frank, how has gardening
affected your drummin?
F: It has enabled me to DIG into the skins
and keep the SLUGS off the cymbals.
Recommended listening for
those readers interested in the
REAL surf sound?
R: For staccato pickin' and thunderous
reverb surf beats, no-one equals Dick Dale -
check out his Tribal Thunder Hitone CD & his
Greatest Hits on Rhino. Ofthe '60s surf
stuff, I love the Original Surfaris & the
Hollywood Surfers LPs, Pat & the
Californians' "Bad", Manuel & the
Renegades' "Woody Wagon" and the
Heyburners' "Speedway". In May, Rhino is
releasing an ultimate surf box set with several CDs of the best '60s surf instro 45s and
a CD of '90s surf groups includes "Save the
Waves" by our band. For non-surf instros,
the Link Wray double CD on Norton is essential -1 also dig the Tex-Mex sounds of the
Fireballs all reissued on England's Ace
Records. The '90s surf I like best: Sir Bald
Diddley & Big Wigs vinyl releases, the
Phantom Surfers & Surf Trio are great trad
surf...for psychedelic surf, try the Mermen
and for punky surf sounds, get any
Trashwomen record. There are stacks available on vinyl & CD - read Livewire for the
latest releases.
G: Go to your local Sally Ann's - look for
scratchy 45s with bizarre surf titles.
F: I love "Comanche" by the Revels - that's
the instro they played during Bruce Willis
pawnshop scene in "Pulp Fiction".
Alos, "Let There be Drums" by '60s
drum king Sandy Nelson.
What's next for the
R: In the next 2 months,
we'll have a cut on a hot
rod instro 10'VCd comp put
together by the Surf Trio and one
the Rhino box set I mentioned earlier. We also hope to have instro on Del-Fi's
Pulp Surfin' 2 and Germany's One Million

in the works. In April our first CD is comin'

Verity #2
(12 pages, quarter size)
I om really impressed with Verity, Brie's first attempt
al a personal zine. Brie starts out by writing about
a girl in her class that is being abused by her boyfriend and how she witnesses the abuse every day.
She then moves on and writes about her own experience with abusive relationships, by talking about
her first boyfriend Kevin and the mental and emotional abuse that he inflicted on her. I am really
proud of Brie for writing about this because this is
somelhing thot needs to be talked about urgently. I
encourage you to order Verity especially for those
that are in relationships and are wondering why
they are miserable when they should be happy.
Abuse is more common than we'd like to admit.

Healing Stone
8.5 X 5.5 62 pages
"Hey, middle class society you're not the boss of
me!" This quote covers an entire page of Shayna's
zine, along with a picture of her shooting the finger
to middle class society. If you identify as a working
class or poor person you should read this zine.
Actually, for middle and upper class people wanting to know what is expected of them as allies
Shoyna couldn't have made it more clear. In Healing Stone she recalls early high school memories of
class oppression and it's effect to her own self opinion. Shayna continues on to current events in her
life and how she is confronting ongoing classism,
questioning her middle class allies, and regaining
self worth. She writes with a bold humour and confidence so that I could really sense how much shame
Healing Stone covers a lot more then classism,
t*hough. With the some daring and confrontational
spirit she explores the uses of sexual assault and
sexism in the media, as well as the sexism she faces.
She discloses her recent sexual assault, which is
very brave in itself. What I really admired, however is the direction Shayna takes in approaching
her assault and violence against women. Besides
being supportive to other girls who share similar
experiences she aims her writing at men by asking
them to examine their own sexism ond conditioning. I think similar to Shayna's approach to classism,
her piece on sexism and assault is extremely useful
to both women and those working to become al-
or interested in supporting survivors write Shayna

Marie starts off the zine by writing aboul her recent
decision to move out of her parents home ond drop
put of high school. She talks about redefining home
and family and how the old definitions are empty,
hollow and meaningless.
J Wilknee takes over and writes a letter to Blake
of Jawbreaker questioning his lyrics and his careless use of the word crazy, asking him if he is singing from life experience of the glamourisation of

I Candles For Girls
| 8.5 X 5.5 34 pages
Jennifer, author ofCFG, claims she is a selfish writer.
| I feel she is giving herself a compliment. This personal zine is about her life, questions, ideas, and
All of which she expresses without con-
of "what others will think". She uses her zine
unwanted and abusive relationships and
allow herself to begin healing.
On the very first page of CFG Jennifer warns,
"this zine is about sex." And she wasn't lying. She
is not afraid to be honest about her sexuality and
her love of sex. Also, Jennifer challenges how religion and society has made her feel dirty and shameful for enjoying sex and her body.
Did I happen to mention this is her first attempt
at zine witting ? I was so impressed with the pure
and uncensored thought in Candles For Girls. Write

"This zine has been about finding patterns and finding the root of them." The author of liar starts with
the patterns formed during her childhood. She analyses how her mother's depression has influenced her
life as well as her entire family. The author goes
further writing about her recent past and current
conflicts she has with her mother. Some of the ideas
and emotions she experiences are fear, anger, feeling neglected and controlled, being expected to
act like an adult at a very young age, and also
guilt. Liar is a real silence breaker and even though
this zine is very personal I think it encourages readers to evaluate their own personal history and upbringing. Write PO Box 249 1027 Davie Street

E PROVIDED BY INTERNET CANADA  WWW.ICAN.NET • This month I'm flying solo, so please bear
with poor l'il ol' me - I'm without my 7"
companion and am feeling insecure, kinda
like 45's that don't have the centre piece. But
luckily enough, there're some great records to
bobble about. . . Startin' off with one of the two
Canadian releases, Sub-Pop has been kind
enough to lend Zumpano, them Vancouver
boys of '60's-influenced pop, to Halifax's
Murderecords for their new single, "The Only
Reason Under the Sun" b/w "The Long and
Winding Road." This is the third release for
Zumpano, which at first seemed like just an outlet for Superconductor frontman Carl Newman
to actually sing rather than scream all the time,
but with Sup-Pop's backing they have become
as established as his other project. The a-side is
just what a single should be: melodic and intensely catchy. Sad but true, it's best summed up
by Mr. Thurier on the enclosed affidavit: it "does
most righteously kick ass." The b-side is indeed
a Beatles cover, and it didn't surprise me in the
least, cuz for some reason, on first listen to their
album, half of their songs reminded me of that
very song anyway and I can't explain why, they
just did. So I guess I should be satisfied now that
Zumpano have actually recorded that song, but
now I recognize what a cheesy song it was to
begin with. They've done a cheesy cover of a
cheesy song. You decide if that's good.
A perfect companion to the Zumpano single
is the new batch of songs by Holly Go-Lightly,
best known for her contributions in the(e)
Headcoatees, who are the female
bandmates to Billy Childish's
Headcoats. Super Electro Records,
garage-punk label from Seattle,
has released two 7"s by Ms. Go-
Lightly, entitled "Girl in the
Shower" and "Pinky Please Come
Bock," each containing two excellent songs of retro-pop fun. She
does guitar, organ, and vocal duties on all tracks, with accompaniment on drums and bass. Even
though the first record is considered the "hit," I prefer Pinky... .
The a-side is upbeat and tougher-
sounding, while the backside is
equally as good, just a little
mellower, with pun-lyrics like, "If I
plead with you to play your game/
Then it's just to be with you/ I wanna
be your cardtable." Buy both records
if you want to be fully satisfied. (Super Electro Sound Recordings, PO Box 20401, Seattle
WA, 98102)
K Records certainly can't release every good
indie-pop release, but they can get their hands
on them somehow. The next two records are on
UK labels, but are thankfully distributed through
the fine Olympia label. First up is from the band
Gilroy, which consists of Cathy Rogers, who
sings and plays keyboards in one of the loveliest
bands in the world, Heavenly, and members of
the McTells, another fine pop band from England. This three song 7" ("Renaissance Girl" +
2) on bi-joopiter records contains Cathy's heavenly, sultry vocals in the midst of light, jangly
strumminess on the b-side, while "Renaissance
Girl" has a bit more edge with some added distortion, (bi-joopiter records, 2 Wentworth Rd.,
Hertford. Herts SGI 3 8JP, England/ K Records.
Box 7154, Olympia WA, 98507)
Also available through K is the new one from
Missy X, a four-folk combo who create wonderful experimental jazz-punk using keyboards,
This self-titled 7"
somewhat remi-
with alternating
slow,  fast, pop,
bass-y, almost jazzy at times, alternating hard/
soft, the rhythm is sometimes disturbingly strange,
but somehow it all makes sense. If you like Unwound, you should like this. (Good Sin Records,

Time for the 7" compilations. Montreal indie
Derivative has put together a double 7" volume
of bands that all sound like Pavement. No, really! Strange for a label that in the past has released some great bands like Pest 5000, Bite,
Moon Socket, and Jad Fair/Phono Comb, none
of which sound so "derivative" as this. Nonetheless, there are some enjoyable tracks in this
Boobytrap! gatefold package, the best one from
Vancouver's Blaise Pascal. Maybe it's a terri-

Yay! The Brats are back! Do you believe in
reincarnation? Anyway, the Cold Cold Hearts
reform Bratmobile's Allison and Erin, plus

drums on this self-titled release on Kill Rock

We've finally received the new single from
Modest Mouse, which is a timid name for a
band that really doesn't sound that meek. Their
"Broke" b/w "Whenever I breathe out you
breathe in/positive negative" record is another
one of them Sub-Pop singles with fancy packaging, even though it's easy to miss cuz the name
is embossed rather than printed. Isaac Brook's
singing is inevitably going to be compared to
Doug Martsch, with his high-pitched wailing, but
that's not necessarily a
bad thing. Nice, clean
songs that build - if you
like Built to Spill, you
might like these sensitive Northwest

Skinner Pilot, one of my favourite bands
from Minneapolis, has a new three-ditty record,
once again on Boston's Good Sin Records. This
trio of Elizabeth Sharp (formerly of the completely
overlooked band New Radiant Storm King) on
boss and vocals, Andrew Zarou on guitar and
vocals, and new drummer Roddy Elliott produce
songs that makes you think about someone else's
problems for a while. The lyrics are abstract but
the emotions are completely tangible: bitterness,
confusion, anger. Skinner Pilot are more cerebral
than hardcore punk, but the attitude is there. Very
pj<vlu    p4^J€Q/rtK.bacl
most Pavement sounding chanson of
the group, right down to the Malkmus-
like vocals. Pleasant, but unoriginal. The
other record contains Montreal's
Starbean, with "No Earthly Means of Transportation," a space-pop song with non-descript
vocals and New York's Saturnine. Their track
"Compromised" has got some pretty neat guitar
noodlings but the vocals are kinda nasally and
gravelly sounding. I'll guess you'll have to decide for yourself if "The New Wave of Pop is on
Derivative." (PO Box 42031, Montreal Que,
H2W 2T3)
Even if you're not in the mood for a wedding, The Wedding Record is worth checking
out, with four bands doing their best to be festive. As the story goes, the staff of Walt Records
were wed on Sept. 2, 1 995 and being the cool,
indie rock geniuses they are, they convinced their
musical friends to contribute tracks to a record
to be used as invitations to the wedding. Us losers had to buy the record, but I can deal with it,
cuz the bands are fabulous. First up:
Stratotanker, with their low-key, jazzy "Secret
Wedding" that has a chorus which I swear goes
"happy happy happy happy joy joy joy joy...;
then, the Mountain Goats (they're always going somewhere, aren't' they?) with "Going to
Port Washington," featuring John Darnielle's bittersweet lyrics and Rachel on bass and back-up
vocals; Franklin Bruno (even though I prefer
his material with Nothing Painted Blue better)
does a fine version of Frank Loesser's "What are
You Doing New Year's Eve?"; the hit of the record

fS   E^o^t^ KRISTA: You said you wanted to talk
about the women whom we admired or
who had influenced us. I was just thinking
that today is Mothers' Day, so I was wondering if you did anything special for
Mothers' Day.
KINNIE: I just spent 4 days with my
mom in Victoria. We just hung out. We
never get to see each other. But I called
her today and left a message: I just said
that I was happy that she had me, that I
was happy that you had my brothers too,
but that it would have been good if it was
just you and me.
Do you have a good relationship with your
Ya, I love my mom. It's an intense relationship. She is a super, fiercely opinionated woman. So is my dad and so are my
brothers. I come from an argumentative
family, for sure. Everyone has an opinion
and everyone is right. Including me.
Do you think of yourself as being an adversarial person?
Ya. Like a shit-raiser, you mean. I like that.
Do you think of your music as being a
way to say what you think without being
Totally. Music and performance generally
or any kind of art is definitely a way to
give someone an in
sure it's adversarial. But I like that and I
respect that in other people. To an extent.
Do you think it's bad to be adversarial?
Not necessarily. I think of myself as being
an adversarial person in the sense I am
willing to disagree, and I will rarely soft
step around what I think. I'm just going to
say it. But I also am a strategist too and I
use adversity selectively depending on who
I am with and how useful I think it will be.
But I felt that when I first saw you, I saw
maybe not adversity, but definitely anger
in terms of the heaviness and directness of
your style.
That's interesting that you see anger. I
know I feel anger but sometimes I don't
feel that it's angry enough.
Do you want your work to be really angry
I don't know it I want it to be angry sounding. But I want to be able to express that.
And I feel like it gets lost and comes out
really sweet sometimes. But that's cool too,
because I see a lot of sweetness. But I'm
sick of women bein"" awoot-	
get Ihe sense that you work in o lot of mediums.
|That you express yourself in a lot of different forms.
You take photographs. You draw. You have your|
music. Is music the focus right now?
Writing is. Music comes out of that but writing is definitely the focus. Writing has been the focus for the
fast four years or so. Music has been the focus for
the last one.
So before you were in a band or singing, what
were you doing with your words?
Painting, sculpture, poetry, creative writing. But
think the outlet before music was graffiti. Doing
big collages and giuing them ai! over the city. 8

Do you remember the first piece of graffiti
you did?
Yeah, it was "Televafium Sedates You. * No - the
first graffiti was anti-war stuff and pro-choice
stuff. I was in my hippy phase, hard core.
Not that graffiti is really a hippy thing. Do you still
do graffiti?
Not as much. I'm going to get back into it,
though. I had a lot of fun, and I realty like
whole hiphop genre of graffiti, i think you can
do a tot with public art. You can definitely get
some interaction going with people you wouldn't otherwise talk to.

Public Art. One of the reasons why I am interested in public art and music, rather than just
sitting in my room and playing, is because it stirs
peoples minds. I'm driven to provide music
pat people like and that I like. I shouldn't really say provide. But as 1 get more and more
involved in music as a public thing it reminds
me that you can provide people wifh sustenance if you are a person who does things in
the public. For example, when ! played at the
Town Pump for this Hemp BC night, there were
10 bands and I was the only woman. All of the
girls and boys were like, "Wow, a girl in music."
It's still a novelty to be a woman in a number of
fields. Music is one of those areas. There is a
growing number of women, obviously. 1 want
po be able to open doors for young women,
women my age, older women. It's an arrogant
rthing to say, but I'd like to be able to do it.
When 1 was high school I played a drum kit.
My drum teacher was a woman, and it totally
fired me. 1 was like, "Wow, that's so cooi. You're
a woman, and you play in bands and you
teach, and you earn a living off of music." It
was so cool.
Do girfs come up and talk to you at your
All the time. It's great. I feel so flattered, when
women come up, and I can see something in
their eyes, that I've made them feel elated in
some way.
One erf fhe reasons why I interview women who
do music is that I saw music as a forum for
reaching young people. Music is a very non-
threatening way to do social change work or
public education. It's fun, and it doesn't feel
like education white it's happening. An image
of a strong woman can have this subconscious
impact; you don't have to say, "Hi. I'm here. Be
like me." You are just there, and you do if.
That's enough.
That brings up the thing I wanted to talk
about, which is women in town that are
doing amazing things. 1 can think of a few,
right off the bat.
The very first women i interviewed in
Vancouver were members of a three woman
lesbian sex art coflective called Kiss & Tell. They
work in different forms: video, photography -
they've also written a book. They produce their
own pom. A lot of their images and their writing
challenge what we consider pom, this whole]
erotica/pornography distinction.
What do you think it is.
In the interview they suggested that erotica!
tends to be what is sanctioned, whereas
pornography is what violates the boundaries
sel by someone in charge. So it is not so much
a difference in content or form; it's about what|
is legitimized. That seems true to me.
I find that a tot of porn and erotica is not veryl
sexy, tt seems that the female body, the areas
of the female body that are focused on o$\
erotic and sexy, are just given so much weight
and redundance, that that's almost gone,
find stuff that is really erotic to be stuff that is|
really obscure. Something that t find realty erotic is the spot on a woman's waist, right kind ofl
in the back, not right on the side, in the back
between the very back and the side - all of the
corners of movement. The creases.
Which makes it hard to find mainstream pornl
erotic. It's ali airbrushed out. Smoothed out..
And realty static. And posed. I've seen some
really beautiful lesbian erotica. I'm sure there ts]
a tot of realty good erotica out there, but
never seem to find it. Where is if?
I find some of your music to be erotic. Thatl
heavy bossy music that gets into your bones
like PJ Harvey. I appreciated that raw angen
in your music. I think it was that song
"Ophelia", ft had less to do with what you
were saying and more to do with the way it|
was being said. The heat from the sound.
Yeah. That song was recorded in 5 minutes
Just went up. Did the guitar line. Played it
back; found another guitar line and put it
down. First tape and just left it. That's why it
feels that way. I was really feeling it. I was by
myself and I was totally thinking of her

she looked when she came home when shel

holding this mound of dreads, and ail of the!

days later she shaved it right down.

Nobody's Cool
This is Lolion's second album following up Full Isaac. Lotion epito-
mizes what I would call
"Loungerawk". With melodic
lounge vocal backed up by guitar driven rock, Lotion keeps
switching between really mellow
songs and full out "rockin"
Loveboat songs. Nobody's Cool
is lacking a song like Love Theme
From Santo Gold as in the previous album, but this is a pretty
good bunch of songs nonetheless
Time Tourist
I've been told that Time Tourist,
even with the addition of much
more studio equipment, really
doesn't sound all lhat different
than B-12's 1993 release Electro-
Soma. However, just like I saw
Aliens without having seen Alien,
I have to admit I have never
owned a copy of the super-hyped
Electro-Soma. Back in '93, I was
more into the dance-floor friendly
grooves of artists like Hardfloor,
Sven Vatfiand The Prodigy rather
than the more cerebral sounds of
what was coined "Intelligent
Techno". Well, it's three years
later and the new catch words of
the moment are "trip hop" and
"jungle"; so where does that

over and over again. And in addition to the music, the packaging of this CD is fantastic. Great

background is a panoramic view
of a 22nd century London. Check
it out. And when you do, have a

Neighbourhood Watch
I was never a huge Grapes of
Wrath fan, though I was curious
lo hear whal the ex-Grape wos
up to these days. As it turns out,
I'm pretty impressed by this Kevin
Kane solo album. And for the
most pari, the only instrumentation is acoustic guitar and a single vocal. The songs are presented in their bare and most vulnerable form
The first four tunes are excellent; kind of sad and pretty. There
are a couple of songs in the middle of Ihe thirty-three minute CD
which gets a bit too long and
meandering for my liking. But it
quickly picks up again and the
last four tunes are as great as the
first few. While it's unlikely that
Neighbourhood Watch will be
commercially successful, I think
that this type of recording suits
Kane very well.

Interface   Reality   (U.S.
Remix 12")
Of course, there is the original
album version of Interface Reality, which I really enjoy with it's
wigged-out tr/hip-hop influenced
beats, and then there are three
reconstructions: one by Stryke,
one by Tyler Stone, and one by
Chns Brann and Aldo Bender
who call themselves Deep Dust.
The first two remixes take out the
great hip-hop beats and put in
the straight four part four dance
beats These two mixes are all
right, but it is the Deep Dust mix
which really stands out. Like the
name suggests, it sounds a lot like
a Chemical-Dust Brothers remix
with great guitar sounds, ass-
shakin' breakbeats and nice build
ups and breakdowns that make
you say "Yeah, I can dig this."
Yes, Ihe Deep Dust remix is the
track lhat makes the whole album
worlh while.

of disappointment and a
few less people semi-filled
the Town Pump caused by
the last-minute cancellation

rumours of laringitis and/or

The Wheatchiefs worked
the crowd the best they
could (that's one low slung

build up to why we paid
$12.50 just wasn't in the
crowd. We caught Fluf at
the Niagara a few months
back and there's no doubt
that the show had the boy-
bonding-high testosterone-
sing-a-long energy that this
show lacked   But enough
comparisons - The Mighty O
and the boys of Fluf offered
up a good time of new and

Roll" Hell, we saw Jawbreaker the last time they
played the Pump, so who
are we to whine?
