 This is our first album, called
"The Smalls" that we recorded
before "To Each A Zone", plus three
new songs. It's been out of print for a
couple of years and we've just re-released it
nationally so we'll be on the road all summer
to support it. You can get "The Smalls"
and "To Each A Zone" at your local
record store through GA^QQ TSFCGSES.

COOL'S ETERNAL BUT
ITS ALWAYS DATED
I'm writing in response to Andrew
McKay's review of The Cows concert at The Dugout. Mr. McKay
says "A big step (for the Cows)
would be opening for 35 people at
a club, instead of headlining a garage for 30." What the hell is so
great about playing clubs'7 The
whole purpose of clubs is to exploit music in order to sell alcohol.
What kind of enviroment is that
for a band to play in? Mr. Mckay' s
kind of attitude is what's killing
independent music. Clubs
shouldn't exist, they are just
leeches on the music scene. If the
philosophy that clubs are better
wasn't so prevalent maybe all the
all-ages venues wouldn't have to
be Rec. Centers or "garages". I
keep hearing people talk about a
new "Cruel Elephant'. fuck that,
how about a place where everybody can go to enjoy music for the
sake of music. Thank goodness
there' s bands like Sparkmarker out
there who ready support the scene
by only playing all-ages gigs

Dear Airhead.
Re: Vancouver Special. "Desperately Seeking Satan".
Hey Kim. thanks for infornung me
of my need to "get a life", but
maybe you should take a little of
your own advice: at least I have
enough of a life not to waste my
lime making up bullshit stories
about people I've never met.
Thanx.

 unless you know what kind of life
they lead. It's too easy. And I would
hope you're not that simple a person. Anyway, HAVOC's improving all the time (something you
don't seem to comment on) and, if
Lucifer decides to keep it up, should
someday reach the magnitude and
importance of, oh, let's say
Discorder. (Say, didn't you guys
get a total of 18 responses to your
last readers poll? Out of a disthbu-
uon of 20,000?)

P.S. Am I now your enemy?
When a person writes or, better
yet, starts their own 'zine they open
themselves up to a lot of personal
crilcism which can sometimes be
hurtful; not realizing this, when
pouring out your most
l of thoughts to x amount of
readers, would be a naive and audacious oversight. Discorderij
above vendettas and, therefore,
everything that is said in a revit
is intended to be valuable or co
structive criticism. Like a row:
maker, whomever, a writer 'sfet
ings are hurt when a reader does
not interpret said writer's work in
the way that it is intended. This is
a tough transition to make (writer
to reader) and when it is made that
writer will be given credit where
credit is due. Oh, by the way, Kim's
"Get a life" comment was in response to Lucifer's disgruntlement
over the fact that the Cruel Elephant had closed and he no longer
had a place to, I quote, "pick up
cool alternative babes." If that is
the mind from which, in your opin
ion, cool writing oozes from then
maybe you should just save yourself some time and start reading
Penthouse Letters. And, yes, we
did get 18 responses to our readers
poll but we didn't write everybody
who bitched about our output.
PS. Only if you want lo be.
PRIDE NO LONGER HAS
DEFINITION
Dear Airhead.
First, it's nice to see that you 'intellectual university types" have
to resort to using the words like
"fuck" and "fucking" to reply to
my letter. Where did you grow up?
Whalley ? Tell me, what's it like to
driving a '74 Camero?
Second, while I currently live
in New York, Don't assume I'm
American. I'm more Canadian than
you'll ever be. (My collection of
Stompin Tom records will attest to
that).
Anyway. I know the V.S. has
problems, so does Canada, and so
does Discorder Magazine. If you
would've READ my original letter, you would've realized I was
offering a SOLUTION to your inability to deliver your magazine to
PAYING subscribers in a timely
fashion.
Perhaps this is why the U.S.
is in such bad shape, people with
IDEAS on how to IMPROVE
things are IGNORED by the people
who make the decisions I guess
in a way YOU AT DISCORDER
are just like the U.S. government.
Good feeling eh!
Paul Guzyk
New York, New York
Where the "fuck" is Whalley9
Whether you are American or Ca
nadian is inappurlenant (university word) lo this whole matter
You live in America and, therefore, you are part of the system
whose Presidents have supplied
arms to third world countries instead of proper schooling and
medicine, baifon the dinner tables
of esteemed world leaders and in
fluence terrorism (remember the
Gulf). Guilt by association, I know,
but that is where Discorder is
different from the U.S. government.
If we had that kind of money ami
power don't you think that we
would at least be a glossy ?
STUPID FUCKING
WORDS
Dear Airhead,
As the B.C. Liberal leadership race
heats up the question arises: how
many Gordons is enough? Have
they forgotten the prime directive?
Why not Gordon Downie? Why
cant Kim Campbell be more like
Kim Gordon? What about the
Rowdyman? How about Gordon
Jump? What about a W*iergate
burglar? Tell me — is Ulis Vancouver or is it Gordonville'1

Well, considering our album (Gordon )has sold oo copies worldwide,
we can safely assume that there is
no such thing as enough Gordons.

your hands, my friend.

Mssr' s Peter Bagge and Daniel Clowes

Comicshop, as well as more great
weather and vacation time, can I seriously expect you to curl up with a
book? Oh well, it's summer, you're

of sunscreen! And happy reading to
those so inclined!
A Circle of Birds (Anvil Press,
$9.95)
IJke a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron
(Fantagraplucs, $17.95)
I decided to review these books together as diey bodi feature "lost boys"
as main characters, are abundantly
surreal and are truly marvelous reads.
Last Labour Day weekend Hayden
Trenholm wrote A Circle of Buds
within 72 hours, die traditional tune
span for writers participating in die 3-
Day Novel-Writing contest. Trenholm,
a playwright, tells die story of a man
suffering from "aminesis," a faux
Greek word which means the death of
memory. Living in a liospilal, armed

David (an alias) reads his daily reixnts
with dread, unable to recall what lie

Tlie novel begins: "Each morning there is a scaly sheath of memory

fascinating as David. Perhaps he is David's fadier,
although this is n° t explained
it really doesn't matter, die
story flows amazingly well.
To reveal more would rob
you of a great read: expect
treachery, passion, deadi, an

As for evil, you can
find it in abundance in
Daniel Clowes' Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron. The
story, collected here, was
originally seen in Clowes'
comic, Eightball. winch is

Searde's superkeen Fantagraplucs. Clay Loudermilk's

Cosmic Retribution (Fantagrapliics/

bites the heads off those mice (mommy

Tliroughout die story fragments
of David's liistory appear as well as
Manson. A note of encouragement by
Robert Crumb is followed by an
excellent interview with Coleman by
co-editor Adam Parfrey.
The pieces range from single
panel "comics" describing the lifesto-
ries of Carl Panzram, Jack Black and
Box Car Bertha, to glorious (in a
manner of speaking) full color paintings depicting Coleman and the world
as he sees it. The honor of Coleman's
subjects are best caught in the color
pieces where virtually everyone is deformed or maimed in some way.
Oozing sores and deformities are the
norm, depravity die expected behavior.
Tlie detail is astounding, however dubious the subject matter, this guy can
I've waited a long time for diis
book. Coleman ls an important artist
and diis Ls an excellent catalogue of his
work. However, the sadness and anger
which permeates die pages keeps me
from enjoying die book.

Incredibly Strange Music, Volume 1
(Re/Search, $17.99)
Tlie RE/Search team of Andrea and
Vale do it again. Tins long awaited
hock, lends its attention to music and
muzak from around the world Some
of die subjects (Martin Denny, king of
"exotic" soundsfromarounddie world,
and Eartlia Kilt, a hell cat, yes. bul
incredibly strange?) are unexpected
but, as with every RE/Search rxxik, it
all gels togetlier.
The diapters are geared toward
musical discussions rather than profiles on artists. Celehs like Lux and Ivy
of die Cramps, Billy and Miriam of
Norton Records and die owners of
Amok Books chat about rare neglected
music. Dozens of record jackets are
reprixluced and, as with most RE/
Search books,dierei.salistof quotations
and anecdotes at die end.
While Incredibly Strange
Music is a swell addition to the
RE/Search family, I'd suggest
the excellent Pranks or the
Industrial Culture Handbook to
anyone just discovering these
books. You'll soon be hooked
and have the whole set anyway!

 Nardwuar Who are you ?
My name is John Ginoli and I was born in Peona, Illinois in 1959.1 grew up in the central part of Illinois which was
pretty Republican. I lived in Champagne, Illinois until 1988. Champagne is a college town which is an oasis among
the cornfields. Actually, I like the Midwest. I don't have any bad things to say about it. Except Indiana is perhaps
the very worst state in the whole country; there is absolutely nothing in Indiana worth mentioning Indiana's in Ihe
Midwest so I should maybe take back what I said.
I didn't really mind where I came from. I left Illinois because I wanted to do musical work. I actually work
for a record distributor here, which I couldn't do back there, and there are a lot more guys out here! Anyway, then
I moved to Los Angeles Thankfully, I escaped from there to San Francisco in 1989.1 have been here ever since.
And you're the lead guitar player in Pansy Division!
Yes, and I also write most of the songs and sing them.
Who else is in Pansy Division?
Chns Freeman who is from Seattle originally
From Aberdeen!
He lived all over Washington state: Coolie Dam, Aberdeen, Centralia, I think. He plays bass and sings. Our
drummer is David Ward. He grew up about forty miles east of San Franasco in a place called Danville out in the
'bums.
When did Pansy Division form?
The end of 1991.
What is the average age of the band?
About thirty.
Are Pansy Division the first pro-sex, pro-safe-sex, all-queer punk rock V roll band ever?
As tar as I know, at least as far as it goes for men. There are other bands that might fit in that category who are
women, like Tribe 8 who seem to have come along at the same time that we have
I've always liked music that isn't usualy associated with
being queer.
As I said earlier, Pansy Division are blazing a new
trail the likes of which the rock world has never seen
before...
That could very well be true.
...especially in rhymes! The rhymes in your songs are
amazing: "known" and "blown," "pick-up truck" and
"boy fuck," "thick" and "dick," "kicks" and "dick,"
"stick" and "lick," "locks" and "cock," "socks" and
"cocks," "nuts" and "butts." And my favourite rhyme
of all: "tuxedo" and "pink torpedo."
Well, it looks like you've been reading our lyric sheets
very closely!
Never before have those rhymed so nicely in rock.
Well, I have to tell you that the last one, "tuxedo" and "pink
torpedo," was stolen from Spinal Tap. That's a Spinal Tap
song that we do. I guess bands with great rhymes inspire
out now. K Records used to sell that through mail order.
The people who do the Kill Rock Stars label are also
based in Olympia and they heard our cassette there.
They called us up and said they really loved our band
and would we like us to be on this compilation. They
asked us if we would contnbute a song and we did.
What was the response to the first Pansy Division
cassette? I guess no Judy Garland fans bought it.
The big surpnse to me was how many people who were
into Judy Garland liked it. I thought the band, pnmanly,
would be something that people who were younger and
gay would be interested in.
I'm thirty-three and I came out in Champaign,
Illinois dunng the '80s. So, even though I came out
dunng the big disco thing in the late 70s and '80s, I was
shielded from all that. There was a generational thing:
the post-disco gays and the dtsco-penod gays. The
disco-era gays tend to be into Judy Garland and tend to
be a little bit older than. A lot ol the people from that
period who I thought would really hate Pansy Division
have really got into it, so it was a nice surprise.
How did that first cassette sell? Thousands of cop-
Have you thought up any knew rhymes, recently, i ies? Hundreds of copies?
since Undressed? j A couple hundred copies, mostly around San Franasco.

Hew Uusic Express reviewed your record and gave
Pansy Division a rating of 100!
I was really pleased. The reason that happened was
because I sent a CD ot the album to a specific wnter who
actually did end up writing a review. His nameis Stephen
Wells who, even though he is straight, often challenges
bands in interviews about their homophobia. He did this
amazing interview with the Happy Mondays about a
year ago in which they were just spewing all sorts of
homophobic BS. Hejust pnnted it and said, "You people
are full of it!' A lot of the time I think journalists just let
this kind of stuff slide by. Stephen Wells, though, really
attacks people and shows them for what they are. So I
thought he would be a good person to address the CD
too, and it turned out good for us.
Actually, the guy who runs our label went to
England when the review came out. All the indie shops
in London had our record and a week later, when the
review came out, almost none of them did. They were all
sold out. That made me feel good.
It's is interesting how people react to the cover of
your record. Who is that on the sleeve?
My friend Alex. We sometimes use go-go dancers, he's
one of them.
He's lying naked in a field of pansies.
Yes.
My friend's mom said, "Where did you get that

So are Tribe 8 a sort of female equivalent to Pansy Division?
Ha ha. No, they're fairly different, actually. They're fnends of ours. We're mutually supportive.
Who is the anti-Pansy Division?
I've had several gay men tell me that we are the anti-Romanofski and Phillips. Do you know who they are7
They are kind of a goofy, lightweight, gay folk-rock duo. We've described as that. They've been around and have
put out some records. I don't really know their stuff too well.
Was there anybody before you who sort of hinted at the stuff that you're doing now in rock 'n' roll? I mean,
it's really neat that you're going in water that has never been tread before? Was there anybody who laid
the groundwork for Pansy Division?
Yes, but there have been people (Lou Reed especially) who have done things that were gender bending and of
a musical relevance too. It seems like a lot of the people who laid the groundwork for us were dabbling. Either they
weren't gay, they were afraid to say they were gay, or they were making a pose so that they could gel people
excited and turned on and inflamed.
So my doing this band, starting this band, is, to a large degree, due to the fact that everybody else who has
come before us has pulled back at some level and refused to come out or said, "Oh, I'm really bi" or "That was
just a phase." I am not in a phase; I've been like this as far as I can remember. It's just singing about what comes
naturally to me whereas other people sing about what comes naturally to them.
Did the Village People ever say they were gay?
Sure. There have been other gays in music, Jimmy Somerville and people like Sylvester and the Village People,
but they pnmanly play dance or disco stuff which doesn't interest me very much. It never really did. I used to be
pretty antagonistic towards it but now I've kind of mellowed out and feel that if people want to listen to that then
that's fine.
The thing that would bother me is that because I am gay it was always assumed by other gay people that
I had to like that stuff. Well, I'm sorry but I don't. So I just wanted to make this space for myself, musically, because

So what is wrong with Judy Garland anyway? After articles and review things, so I sent every magazine that

anything against Judy Garland per se except that she
has been rammed down my throat ever since I came oi
Why?
Because she is a gay figurehead. The Stonewall Rebellion in 1969 happened right around the time that Judy
Garland died. She was a figurehead, role model, for
gays of that era but that era was so long ago that her
relevance to me has really diminished. To me she
represents the kind of gay scene that was very closeted,
very sad, and very tragic. I'm well adjusted and positive
about life and I don't feel any connection to that old sort
of tragic gay existence. Times have improved. Things
have moved on.
And Judy Garland references abound everywhere. See a gay movie. Read a gay magazine. Judy
Garland is everywhere. Get over it. Judy Garland is
ancient history.
I first heard Pansy Division on the Stars Kill Rock
compilation on which you guys contributed the incredible song "Bunnies." How did you get involved
in that project?
Before we had an album out we had a cassette which
had some of the songs that are on the album/CD that is
record? That's pornography!" Did you have any
trouble getting the record printed?
As a matter of fact, yes. We had every format done in
a different place. The people who did the CD had
no problem with it but the people who did the
 album, somewhere in Alabama, were freaked out.
They don't like seeing cocks?
Yes and it's a soft cock. There's no sexual activity
going on in the picture, it's just a picture of a naked
guy lying in a field of flowers. That's it. And they said
it was obscene. That's Alabama for you.
And you have to turn the record over in order to
see the soft cock!
I know. So it you're looking at a CD in the store you
can't see it anyway; you can't see it on the cassette.
But, of course, you can see it on the album cover. I
have a great story about that.
For some reason our record is selling well in
Japan—there's been a lot of interest for Pansy Division over there— but Japan is even sicker than
America in terms of uptight sexuality. Three times,
exporters that I know have sent the record into
Japan and customs have refused to let it into the
country. They say that they will either ship it back to
you at your expense or they will destroy the copies,
so they destroyed the copies. To get around this
someone else I know has taken white-out to all of the
offending parts on the album cover on the shnnk
wrap. And on the CD booklets, which you can't see
from the outside of the CD cover, they've opened the
CDs and whited out the willie in order to get it into
Japan. This istheoame country that gave us Rapeman
comics. What bullshit.
How did you end up on Lookout Records? Don't you
work for Dutch East India Trading Company ?
That's true, I work for Dutch East but their offices are in
New York. I'm a west coast rep. The people who work at
Dutch East didn't like us that much to put us out. I'm kind
of glad they didn't at this point. Lookout is based in the
Bay Area and I like the idea of having our label here to
call up and meet with all the time.
Were they afraid of you?
I think the guy who made the decisions just didn't like us
well enough. When you're an independent label signing
bands you have to be excited about the bands you're
putting out because there really isn't a lot of reward in
many ways. The reason why we signed with Lookout
was because they were very generous with royalties—
they're a low-budget label. They don't add on a lot of
expenses to deduct from royalties; they're pretty much
basic. They put it out and it is going to either sink or swim
by itself. They aren't going to spend a lot of money
promoting it. They do the basics and then "You're on
your own, kid." One thing I like about them is that they
still put out 45s and vinyl LPs. Some of the other labels
we were talking to either put out CDs and cassettes or
just CDs. I'm a vinyl person myself, still. I have a CD
player, but records are cheaper. I still buy records.
Year Bitch, Tribe 8, Bikini Kill and the Lucy Stoners.
You mentioned that, there was a bit of a problem
with the little bit of cock on the cover to Undressed, but on "Bill and Ted's Homosexual Adventure," the cover is, let me say, a bit more racy.
Yes, you see them actually having a homosexual
adventure on the cover. We rather like that picture.
Now, was there any trouble getting that printed?
That one wasn't done at a pnnter, it was done on a
high quality Xerox™machine. It was done by a friend
having access to that machine. So it didn't have to go
through the same process as our album.
What's going on on the back of the single?
That's actually a picture taken at Gilman Street when
we played there. Some of our dancers were with us
that night. One of the guys from the audience was
reaching up to touch the butt of one of our dancers,
who was wearing a jock strap at the moment, and the
other dancer is trying to wave his hand away. It's a
pretty funny picture because the person touching the
butt was a famous Bay Area personality: Marshall
Stax, a radio show host for KALX.
Has K. Cobain heard your

I know he has by now. One of the stores that I talk to
Your shows are pretty wild then! You have go-go

Yeah. And there's also the matter of the work permit
thing.

There's a certain way to lie. I realize you just can't lie,
you have to have it organized. So I think the next time
we go up and play Seattle we'll try to get up to

"Groovy Underwear," which explores Ihe many types.
Thats a few tidbits of what's coming up.

No. Macrame is not exactly a sexy topic in my house
There is a song that Chns. our bass player, wrote
called "James Bondage," which might excite the leather
w
They let Guns W Roses tour Japan but they
won't let Pansy Division records in.
It's a sexist society.
Have you had any airplay problems? What songs
are DJs afraid of?
"Bunnies," "Anthem," and "Cocksucker Club." A couple people from radio stations in the United States
have sent me cassettes of when they played us on
the air and bleeped out the offending words, which is
fine with me. I wasn't about to go and censor the
songs myself but if people want to cover up certain
words and beep them or just have a space there
that's fine with me. Whatever it takes to get the song
on the air locally. I think the songs that are being
played the most are "Hippie Dude," "Fern in a Black
Leather Jacket" and "Versatile." I think those are the
three that are suitable for airplay in America.
Who is playing your record?
The radio station that plays us a lot is a station in Los
Angeles called KXLU. A friend told me that somebody played "Bunnies" and then the DJ came on the
air and said, "Oops, I guess we won't be heanng that
song again." So, we get some airplay but ifs one of
those silly American things.
Was "Smells Like Queer Spirit" yourfirst record?
Yeah, it came out in November of1992.
tie; in March we did an in-store appearance at Fallout. I
called them up recently and somebody said, "John, you
won't believe who came in and bought your record Ihe
other night. Courtney Love. She came in and bought the
"...Queer Spirit" single and your album." So Kurt and
Courtney have got a copy now. I guess I'll be hearing
from them if they're offended, but I'd be surprised.
Have the Spinal Tappers heard "Big Bottom"?
I did send a copy to Harry Shearer, who does a radio
show on KCRW in Santa Monica, he is one of the
members of Spinal Tap, When I lived in Los Angeles I
used to listen to his show, so I sent him a copy of the "Big
Bottom" 45. Maybe he'll like it.
Speaking of singles, your most recent single is "Bill
and Ted's Homosexual Adventure." It's just excellent. Pure party rock'n' roll! It's on OutPunk Records.
What is OutPunk?
OutPunk is a label run by this young guy in San Francisco who is a young, out punk. He just put out Tribe 8,
the dyke-punk band from San Francisco. It is a 6-song
EP, I think, on vinyl, cassette and CD too. He put out a
record by a straight band called Screeching Weasel who
have a song called "I Wanna Be a Homosexual."
They're also on Lookout.
That's right.  Matt's also put out a 4-song 7"
compilation called There's a Dyke in Ihe Pit It has 7
a small stage in a small club.
Do you plan to make it up to Vancouver?
I have to figure out how to get into Canada without
any problems because we can't really bring our
records with us. I'm afraid they will be confiscated at
the border because of that little piece of skin on the

Who was the first Canadian you ever met?
A guy named Jim Allison from Toronto who is from a
| band called Fuel and had a single out on Lookout a few
I   years ago. We both used to work at Rough Trade in
San Francisco and I used to talk to him about Canada,
the land of sensible healthcare.
You've got the Undressed LP and two singles,
"Smells like Queer Spirit" plus Bill and Ted's Homosexual Adventure, what could possibly be next
for Pansy Division?
We've recorded our next single which will be out on
Lookout in August. It's got three songs, one of which is
an original called "Touch my Joe Camel," about phallic
cigarette advertisements and the effect on the psyche
of one person. The other two songs on there are a
version of Pete Shelley's "Homosapien", done in the
style of the Buzzcocks, and a remake of a Roxy Music
song called "Trash." After that we'll have another single out on Lookout in November or December, and the
new album which is already written, not recorded, will
be out early next year.
Can you please, please, give us a hint of some of
the songs that will be on the new album?
Okay, lets see. There's a song about a guy with a organ
of certain size called "Beer Can Boy"; a song about
living in Wer.t Hollywood called, "Fluffy City"; a song
called "Rock Bottom-Off" which I won't descnbe, you'll
Anything else you'd like to say to Canada, John of
Pansy Division?
Yes. Always use a Condom. We sing about sex a lot,
but there are consequences. It's not just this "wham-
bam-thank you, sir," kind of thing. We do feel responsible. If we're gonna sing about sex we should sing
about it in a way that doesn't lead to repercussions.
You can read about how to use a condom on the inside
of our album cover. We thought it would be the kind of
information that, at least in this country, our government is loathe to give.
Thanks very much and keep on rawkin' in the free
world!
Hey, thank you so much and we'll see you later this
year, I hope.

What Australian bands serve as inspirations for your work?
Whilst there are a number of Australian
bands we enjoy listening to (Peril, Foil,
SPK, Snog, Dead Can Dance, Soulscraper,
etc.) the only artist we can probably cite
as directly influential (particularly on
Bloody Tourist) is Paul Schulze. We'd all
been impressed with his work for some
time and his approaches lo composition,
construction and, in particular, detailing
hllle bit more. For
those concerned with
the fringes of music, die
increased interest has been
fuelled, to a large extent, by a new ease of

interest shown in Australia. This is starling
to improve and bits and pieces of traditional
music are filtering through. Essentially, il is
still only digeridoo and a small amouni of

rial that just never sees the light of day (for
the Caucasians anyway). The aborigines
themselves seem to have experienced similar problems to many indigenous groups
around the world: Ihe youth are less interested in tradition and the preservation of
their own culture, and are either lured by the
appeal of the Western twentieth century or,
more unfortunately. increasingly
marginalized within a predominantly while
society. The face of Koorie tradition we see
in Australia isgaining a higher profile through
the work of bands such as Yothu Yi ndi, who

Ethnic sounds abound in Bloody Tourist. Do you find people are suspicious of
whiley performing indigenous music?
I Ihink il depends on whal they're claiming to do and how well executed it IS.
Whites performing indigenous music divorced from its culture of origin I think
has people asking "What's Ihe point?"
Unfortunately, the alternative is often a
safe, passionless fusion. For example, when
you look at the line-up on a Mickey Hart
project (artists such as Zakir Hussain,
Babatunde Olatunji, Airto Moriera etc.
etc.) you'd be expecting something widi  :

It began November, 11th, last Remembrance Day (no, this is not nostalgia!). It
ended a little before midnight of June 16th:
we hit #1. There were no injuries. It was fun.
It was RADIO. The countdown was my way
of saying "So long, thanks for the fish." Why
701 ? Why not! Why do it at all? Why go to all
the trouble? Again, why not! My scientific
method for compiling the list was to consider
every song ever written except: a) songs
which have been used in TV commercials; b)
songs I am sick of; and c) songs I have never
heard. So cast aside your preconceptions,
murder your dogma and understand that

 "Very   Important   and
Instrumental. ..since
1985,"   is   the   latest
dynamic attempt at
self-labelling by the
band which critics ,
have described in  f
the past as ranging in sound from
Surf to Punk to
Tex-Mex. The Toronto-based Shadowy    Men    on    a
Shadowy Planet have
been, almost exclusively, recording instrumental     sounds      %
since 1985 and their
newest effort on Cargo/
Jetpack records. Sport
Fiahin':   The   lure   of
the   bait,   the   lack   of
the hook, continues the
great   unspoken   tradition of earlier releases
like Savvy Show Stoppers and Dim the Lights,
Chill the Ham.
Don Pyle, Roid
Diamond and Brian
Connelly collectively
decided, close to a dt
adc ago, that they simply could not put into
the words all those musical visions and narratives which danced in
their heads. "We couldn't
make any lyrics into
rhyming couplets, so that's
why we had to be instrumental,'' explains Pyle.
"It's like painting a
wider, bright picture to
give you all the information in one sentence,"
Diamond adds. A case in
point, or several for that
matter, can be heard on
Sport Fishin'. "Off Our
Back, Conrad Black" is
a little ditty inspired by
the band's failed experience in negotiating interest relief with The
Bay department store
chain. Early on in their
career, the shadowy ones
could n,ot repay the high
interest which accumulated on their purchase
of supplies desperately
needed for an upcoming
tour. Conrad Black, who
owned the retail chain
at the time, rejected ^j
request by the band
pay off their debt by
playing in Bay store
lobbies. "Conrad Black
was an entrepreneur,
improvises Diamond, "just
doesn't cut it lyrically."
"Honey, Your Wasting
Ammo" recounts a weekend tale of video-game
seduction. The generally
unimpressed shadowy girl-
friends     broke     with

*«l
technophobic tradition and became so
enraptured with the
new release of Space
Invaders, that after 10
minutes of video screen
brain washing, as an
enthusiastic Pyle claims,
"in this tiny voice one
of the women says,
'Honey, your wasting
ammo'." Laughter erupts,
and another wordless
classic is born. Not all
musical births, however, reach the point of
full studio-recorded
maturity. "Amish Father, " a conceptual piece
in which the band continually beat each other
up, has yet to be re
leased.     ^%9£wqS
Tempered with their
subtle-as-a-hand-grenade
sense of humour is a
satirical side to the
Shadowy Men. Being
an avid fly-fisher (not
the   bird)   I   was   im-
busincss." Okay.
This remnant of punk
attitude is found in other
aspects of the band. Until
recently, the Shadowy
Men were a totally autonomous package: booking their own shows,
promotional and financial self management, repairing their own cars
and even sewing the
buttons on their pants,
the band symbolized improvisation and self-reliance. Diamond comments,
"with agents or managers they want to make
money, and as soon as
you're being managed by
somebody you become a
product." Still maintaining considerable autonomy
through their own Jetpack
Music, Cargo Records
now manufactures the
discs and MCA distributes the products. In
accounting for this slight
^^^hif t, Pyle explains, "they
pressed with the title can act like your parents
Tuia suggest other  ways

and '50's style covol
of Sport Fiahin'. The
band contends, how
"^^Srrfng is not
^rity for any of
In fact, Pyle
ibes sport fishing
"pretty gross." So
hy the obvious reference to Sir Izaak Walton's
claim to literary fame
and B.C.'s main tourist
attraction? Pyle responds
in a completely unamused
voice, "the title is an
analogy for the Music
of doing things because
they have experience at
floggin' the round things."
Taking suggestions
from those who are experienced at giving them,
the group's latest release
had input from record
producer Steve Albini.
Having recently worked
on PJ Harvey's newest
disc and being a huge
fan of the band, the
prolific and inexhaustible producer helped the
i attain a
ve sound"
^eir instruments,
nakes a record
l-dimcnsional,"
I says, "and he
out of

recording experience, Pyle
speaks of Albini, "he
gets the naughty with
the nice." ^^1^^^^
Apart from their
recordings and little-
known but highly addictive board game known
as "Schlagers" (now a
prized collector's item).
Shadowy Mon on a
Shadowy Planet have
been crooping into the
unsuspecting minds of
millions of television
viewers every week as
the house band for The
Kids in tbe Hall comedy seri
otic relatioSI
cording to Pyle, originated out of "friendship,   working  for  free
nilai
iibili-
ties." Apparently, Diamond and Connelly grew
up and went to High
School with Kidd- regular Bruce McCullough
(the short guy). Diamond also played in a
band with McCullough,
Connelly did the recording, and The Kids
began using Shadowy
Men music to open their
live shows. So when the
TV   comedy   scries   pi
loted the shadowed
ones were a natural choice.
A good business choice
too, as The Kida have
been renewed for another season and the
Shadowy Men have just
signed a now deal to stay
on for big bucks. Besides,
according to the band,
G.E. Smith and his Prime-
time Players were not
available, j^
So what's next for
the Shadowy Men on a
Shadowy Planet? Judg
ing by their past itinerary, they will be kept
quite busy. Having recently returned from a
successful mini-tour of
England (London, actually) where they also
completed some recordings for the "John Peel
Sessions," the Shadowy
Men arc recording some
new songs for The Kida

SPECIAL
IMMIIfflflffllMI
THE RANT; THE SARCASM
With Kim Sparkmarker away on tour
most of "Vancouver Special" will be my
fault this time around. But before I start
reviewing I'd like to briefly rant about
the lack of thrashing (I refuse to use the
word moshing) I've not seen at various
all-ages shows that I've managed to
stumble to throughout the year. Running
around in the pit was always a great
spontaneous reaction to high energy music, but it seems to have become extinct
(Maybe I just went to the wrong shows?).
[/ 'd say so. Why is it that I must suffer
through the nonsensical display of
"thrashing" at shows where it is
absolutely not merited. Ed.] Yeah, it
does get a little tired when it's more of a
"this is what we're supposed to do at a
hardcore show," but it sure is a hell of a
lot more fun than standing around and
tapping your foot to the music as if you
were listening to Benny Goodman.
As far as pit violence goes, it tends
to look a lot more chaotic than it really is
(unless genuine, jock boneheads are
present) If I could survive that "violence"
as a scrawny 15-year old, expending lost
energy and having fun without getting
hurt, anyone can. Of course, maybe the
reason no one is dancing is because all the

STEPPIN' ON GRANT'S TOES
Brand New Unit 7"
This 7* is long overdue but, alas, it is here
green vinyl and all. Three melodic
hardcore-type songs that remind me of
Shades Apart, latter-day 7 Seconds and,
hell, even some Dag
Nasty. "Summertime" is my pick: really
uplifting and sing-a-long-ish except I
can'tsing along'cause no lyric sheet was
included, bummer. I've had the
opportunity to hear their new Shindig
prize recording so if you' ve been waiting
for this 7" to come out AND you're
digging it, then you'll be stoked on then-
next release. For now, get this 7" to tide
you over til the next (3 Minute Mile

REVIEWS
According to that other long-time,
"cutting edge," local entertainment 'zine,
Wretched Ethyl are a "punk" band.
They certainly have a heavy dosage of
early X in their sound (relatively short,
punchy tunes with a vocal style very
reminiscent of Exene) but it's better than
anything an X revival could come up
with. Because of that alone you should
write to them. (#202-1255 Broughton
St., Vancouver, B.C. V6G2B4)
Second Guessing are backwith
two tapes: If Picasso Could Have Painted
the Sea (recorded in March) and I Didn't
Mind the Snow (recorded in April).
...Snow is far and above the superior of
the two; Picasso...  is somewhat
unsatisfying, almost as if the songs were
cast-offs from early recording efforts
...Snow, on the other hand, it extremely
listenable. Many different influences
come to miDd but an early-'80's, mellow
electro-pop sound dominates. The
songwriting is definitely improving and
the tape contains some quite memorable
melodies.
Nicely done tape cover too. (3573 W.
16th Ave. (bsmt), Vancouver, B.C. V6R
3C2)
Veterans of this year's Shindig
event, Drag the River, play hard rockin'
hairshaker music very much in the vein
of Wool or Nirvana. The main problem
with this type of music is it walks a
tightrope between truly heavy, energetic
music and abysmal '70's retro-metal.
Unfortunately, DTR lean too far into the
'70's territory and are definitely in danger
of falling into the plod-rock gorge. (2905
St Kiida Avenue, North Vancouvtr.B.C
V7N2A8)
North American Bison took
me totally by surprise. With the name
and the goofy picture of Andy Gibb (or
someone like that, I don't fucking know
anything about '70's sleaze icons) I
expected a total novelty band. What I
didn't expect were 4 tracks of absolutely
rippin'.highenergy.rawasfuckhardcore.
The songs are fast and heavy but they're
also extremely well structured revealing
N.A.B.'s superior musicianship. The
vocals are powerful and raw-throated
with just the right edge of melody. All
this and intelligent, angry lyrics. How
could you not resist? (North American
Bison c/o KathieCrosby, 6103 St Albion
Wy. #315, Mountlake Terrace, WA
98043 U.S.A)
The Empty Tomb's Welcome to
the Human Race tape has a cover familiar
to anyone who has seen tbe original
Agnostic Front Victim in Pain gatefold
Empty Tomb probably would have been
right at home with that old breed of NY
hardcore with their heavy, angry guitar
sound and the raw, shredding vocals.
Very memorable hardcore with a bite.
(P.O. Box 20714, Salem, Oregon 97307-
0714. The demo is $6.)
Shine's Sonrise CD isn't my
thing. I'm guessing that COAST Radio
plays them 'cause they have that "radio"
sound. Can't say I would change the
station 'cause I probably wouldn't even
think of listening to it It's pretty, soft and
oh-so sweet at times but bar-rockin'
cheese at others. You decide, I'd rather
not (Box 327, 810 W. Broadway, Vancouver, B.C. V5C 4C9)
I listened to Rosstta Stone's
new demo more than once but it's exactly
what I stay away from: metal/rock that
doesn't challenge in anyway; try to be
cool and sly with enough rock to bang
your head. Pearl Jam rip-offs don't make
you alternative! Shoulda sent it to Nite
Moves. Sorry! (Box 93559, Nelson PK
P.O., Vancouver, B.C. V6E 4L7)
What a name! What a cover! Talk
about insanely stupid and silly. The
Flying Butt Pliers are five bored, and
probably drunk, guys from Delta who
got together and.voila! I don't get every
joke but Tm sure their friends find it
entertaining. I wish other bands put as
much interest into their demos as these
guys. It's easy being cheezy. (5068 47A
Ave., Unit D, Delta, BC, V4K1T8)
Angry Candy's demo, however,
makes me want to get down and boogie.
Upbeat and catchy, thus is definitely abeam

My most sincerest of apologies
for missing last month's ish. See,
I' mon tins big ol' shady rock tour
widi that combo Doth Smugglers
and, well, it's takui' a long time.
At last month's deadline I was in
Ontario and had collected dick
for material to review. But now
it's a month later. I'm in I. A. at

I've collected plenty to review.

C+ in my book cuz it's worth tlie
effort for a Canuck band to put
outvinyl. (Nim Records, 115 Liberty Cr., Moncton, NB, E1A 6X6)
And then there's the marketing kings of merch, Chicago's
The Coctails, with their EP 3/4
Time. As O says, it's amazing
this stuff is on vinyl. Ultra-cool
'n' original, soft 'n' quirky jazz.
These guys play the "rock circuit" and, man, this is one show
I'd like to see in a rock club.
Waltzes, polkas, Bavarian beats,
you name it, 'Ihe Coctails play it.

Boneclub
Orangutang
Commodore Ballroom
Wednesday, May 26
Pere Ubu blasted forth a long performance
to a receptive, yet sparse, audience as part of
the Imago Road Show which also featured
labelmates Orangutang and Boneclub. Poor
Orangutang probably didn't get much of a
crowd; when I arrived just as Boneclub were
about to play—let's just say it was a very
lonnng set—there couldn't have been more
than 150 people in the club.
Pere Ubu (mark 1) were fairly
angst-ridden guys and some of their best
material ("Final Solution," "30 Seconds Over
Tokyo") came from the mid-70's when
the band originated as Rocket From the
Tombs land lead vox David Thomas was
known as Crocus Behemoth). This show,
however, focused on the four studio albums
of Pere Ubu (mark 2): the products ot the
band's six-year hiatus during the early 80's.
The songs can still be deliciously-sad al
times, yet there is still a spirit of optimism
which certainly didn't exist before. With the
new release, Story Of My Life, the band
seems at ease with being a 'rock' group:
Thomas' voice is deeper and his vocals seem
less consciously quirky.
The concert opened with the first
two songs from the new disc, "Wasted" and
"Come Home" ("I was a spy in the heart of
our home") and later Thomas humored us
with an extended version of "The Story Oi
My Life" which detailed how he looked up
his childhood sweetheart's phone number in
the Toronto phone book yet backed out ot
calling. "Goodnite Irene" (not the standard i
had me humming "driven like the will ofthe

was missing (although it was on the set list
a souvenir). The oldie of the nighl was a
disappointing version of the audience re
quested "30 Seconds Over Tokyo" (David's
instructions to the substitute bassist, "play
like chopping bombs once in awhile"!. Even
out of practice il was just too sloppy even for
an apocalyptic rune as this.

(We Be) Birthin' Cows
North Van. Rec. Center
Friday, June 4
It was Trish's (Ihe girl who puts on gigs at the
rec. center) birthday party so to celebrate she
had five "juvenile punk rock bands" play.
The first band certainly wasn't what I was
expecting. (We Be) Birthin' Cows sound like
the Butthole Surfers with Henry Rollins singing and it they rock! Their lead singer, the
infamous Wozzle, even had tike Rollins tattoos drawn on his chest. They ended their set
with a ten minute feedback session and the
sacrifice of a bright orange plastic pig. 1 don't
know how to describe these guys but 1 overheard someone say lhat they had "the
Coquitlam sound," whatever thai is. Check
them out if you have a chance.
Dirty Black Summer is the definition of juvenile punk. They all look aboul
twelve years old and were pretty cool. Old
Skull look out!

Ginger
Town Pump
Saturday, June 12th
My breathing pattern fractured when word
of a Ginger performance firs! broke, feeding a growing anticipation that had begun
October 30th. I992 (the final Grapes of
Wrath perlimiance). The first glimpse of
their poster—swirls of purple and white,
power-stapled high above a rainbow of urban gratitti caused a tremor from within.
And although I hit a yellow light at Friday's
show by encountering the two most feared
words in a concert-goer's vocabulary.
'SOI D ('Il." Saturday'! ticket! were purchased at sunnseand things began to roll.
Many questions were abound: Wouid

would Tom just perform the songs he wrote?

his lovely locks again '.''''The answers proved
positive in all instances, although this was
very unfortunate tor the latter, despite the
fad ihat I won Ifl bucks on il.
Ihe crowd was visually leased wilh a
coloured kaleidoscope of projection! on the
back wall until, finally. Ginger sauntered,
beer m hand, on to ihe stage. Vinceni Jones'
previouslyback-cornered key boards had now
leapt front and centre stage, making il quite
evident lhat he achieved quite an advantage
from the break-up of the Grapes of Wrath
and saw Kevin Kane "leave" Ihe band in late
October (Which I still think was caused by
Kevin's obnoxious scowl in ihe opening

Duvri. Contrary lo his banter. "I finally goi
a mike, but I don'I know what to say."
Vincent burst inlolhespotlighlsinging backup, playing guitar and. generally, being a
strong frontal presence.
Tom Hooper fit easily into hi! new
role, which he had apparently been rehearsing for in his last two years with the Grapes.
He appeared more confident and chatted
easily with the audience, going beyond his
standard. "Gee. thanks guys."

Bughouse Five
The Railway Club
Saturday, June 12th/Sunday,
June13th
Rockabilly music is one of those forms of
music that often gets called derivative. But.
whatever you call it and in ihe end. no
matter what kind of music you're listening
to- as long as it's done well and wilh some
guts, it doesn'l matter what you call it. This
brings me to local stompers Bughouse 5.
The intimate, make that postage
stamp-sized, dance floor of the Railway Club
allowed for the good sized crowd to stomp
away while the group wailed llirough a lot of
songs from their latest CD Solid (well worlh
picking up I might add i. The Bughouse Five
make for a high-spirited live show too, with
the sounds ot Taylor Nelson-Little's punchy
drums. Ihe holler of ihe dapper Butch
Murphy, and twanging stand-up bassman
Ronnie Hay ward working the crowd Tins
makes a contrast lo the laid-back slage presence of guitarist Russ Schindel whose attack
comes from his ferocious pig-in-heal guilar
playing. Kit together, when it's going strong,
can get the Bughouse Five's music received
to the point ot frenzy

Disease
(Cargo Records)
The problem with industrial music
is that il all walks a line line between
being electrifying cool and
unhelievahlystupid. It issurpnsingly
difficult lo get away with wearing
all black, singing about robots, death
and religion while sampling dozens
of not-so-great lines from cheezy
movies. Every now and then one of
these industrial outfits goes over tin-
deep end.
GGFH tries too damn hard to
scare you with spooky album art and
grim, raspy pseudo-rap on its album
Disease—a collection of songs about
such light topics as rape, murder,
sin. and cannibalism. Taken
individually, tracks like "Room 213"
or "Flesh" are quite solid, even good,

BIKINI KILL/HUGGY BEAR
split LP
(Kill Rock Stars)
Bikini Kill continues to pump out
their vein of angry, raw, trashy punk
with this rough recording (actually
adding power to die music) but I
didn't find the songs to be as
engaging as those from their demo.
I much preferred the Huggy Bear
side which consists of a finely
balanced selection of songs, ranging
from hard-driving grungey punk to
noisier weirdness, with well placed
elements of pop roving in and oul of
the songs where necessary.

electronics that made this song
stand out. According to an April
'93 interview m Alternative Press
magazine, James "gels an idea
from outside sounds or a noise,
and will sample i» and play with
it. This may not seem like a novel
idea to devotees of Non or
Neubauten, but few in the techno
arena have explored the
boundaries of sampling as the
Aphex Twin has."
"Didgeridoo," which is not
on Ambient Works, was James'
first release and garnered a lot of
attention. It's a strange one for a
dance floor hit, incorporating
manipulations of an already
strange soundi ng instrument with
very little beat to it, but its
uniqueness is its strength. Ambient
Works washes over you and
makes you feel as if you're
floating underwater while strange
sonar blips bounce around you.
Tlie only down-side to Ambient
Works is that if you're an
apartment dweller like me, die
subsonic bass on some of the
tracks can't really be turned up
wiUiout the neighbours haling
you.   A  uniformly  excellent
Polygon Window's Surfing
on Sine Waves is a bit more upbeat
and it does contain the
magnificent "Quoth." The
untitled track is one of my faves:
a deep, dissonant bass line is
contrasted with what sounds like
a Canadian goose being tortured.
Again, not to be nussed.
Unfortunately, since Warp
Records is in England and R + S
is in Belgium diese are very
expensive. On the plus side,
Richard.lames has started hisown
label and is looking for demos.
He also has a mail order service:
Rephlex Records, P.O. Box 2676,
London, Nil, England.

PIGFACE
Washingmachinemouth
(Invisible Records)
Pigface's latest outing is a perfect
example of what die band is all
experii
Washii
,, inn,
nilh
comprised mostly of remixes from
Fook widi die addition of a new
track called "Cutting Face."
Included are a 10-ininute, really
swell remix of "Hips, Tits, Lips
Power" (where it kinda samples
itself thru and thru), called "Satan
On Tlie Inside Lrxiking In." and a
toned-down version of "Satellite."
This isn't for industrial fan
wannalvs. it's for those who really
in not talking ..bout
>. (in
that k:n
When one thinks of all the
industrial giants conung togedier
and forming an amalgamation
called Pigface, with dandy album
names like Gub, Spoon, etal., you
really don't know what to expect.
If anti-expectations are for you
then Washmgnuuhmemoutli is
perfect. Make sense? Neidier did
the album, but I liked it.

Greetings and salutations, loyal reader types! I
was going to do a rundown ofthe two new money-
grabbing music formats (DCC and Mini-disc) and
give you my spin on 'em but, gosh, I just got a big
pile of rekkids from all over the place I Thusly, and
ergo, I felt I couldn't put off mentioning them a
month from now. I'm getting more and more
strange 'n' goofy platters from you out there these
days, so I gotta tell you about them before a bigger
pile develops. So now I'm gonna subject you to a
Psyschosonic Psuperselection! You have been
warned.
The first volley comes courtesy of Paul
Brooks, editor and disciplinari an of this li'lol' rag:
TheTreeclimbers4-song EP(Lanan Records)
Not my typical fare, this EP goes in the "best left
forgotten by all concerned" dept. The key figure
on this is the presence of Sub Pop god, Johnathan
Pone man, a co-conspirator in the whopping heavy
cross we have had to bear called the "Seattle
Sound." Not that you'd believe it by listening to
this treacherously heinous soft-pop slop the Tre-
eclimbers dole out (remember China Crisis or
Wang Chung and you know what I mean!).
Poneman would probably really like to forget he
played bass on this.

The next slab comes from Mark Coulavin
from the 65th most expensive place to live on this
Earth, Tronna, Ont:
Plant Music — Baroque Bouquet (Amherst)
Another addition to the ever-expanding "plant
growth" genre of music. Plant Music takes the
scientific tack on the liner notes, explaining the
history in high-falutin' jargon like this:
"Response to Bach and Shankar musical
forms is evident in all experiments we 've read.
Response away from percussion and also from
non-Diathematical and extremely simple musical
forms (acid rock) is equally evident." They follow
this lofty stuff with the usual plant-theme titles
you'd expect. Tbe music is this light, fluffy, pseudo-classical, pre-new age twaddle that's supposed
to make yer tendrils turgid. I don't know if this
theory works, all I know is my plants wilt when I
throw on Killdozer!
Cheezability Rating: 88 (+ 5 for flake appeal)
Coming from kinda queasy Prince George,
the next few are from the ever-patient Sara (Christ!
I can't find her last name! Boy will she be pissed!).
Give her a hand, folks, she sent me about a half of
a dozen albums!
Music For Your Plants - ? (Carrnel Records)
Same type of stuff as the last one, with the added
bonus of photos. Once again, it's pro-classical and
anti-rock but the music is better, using known
pieces instead of loopy stuff.
Cheezability Rating: 90
Happy Times — Mitch Miller & The Gang
(Columbia)
Happy times, indeed, when Mitch & the Gang kick
it out! Sing-a-long oldies and traditionals in true
Mitch style. Comes with a dozen ditties and about
6 sets of lyrics for the whole posse to groove with!
Sara, how could you give this up? (Phun Phact!!
R.D. Harrison informs me Miller was A&R chief
for Columbia in the '50s. I think all A&R people
model themselves after this guy.)
Cheezability Rating: 100
Naljiwaj Mnje Wodotschku 7" — h/an Rebroff
(CBS)
Ivan is the Slavic male equivalent to Nana
Mouskouri. I don't know what country he comes
from but they don't use a whole lotta vowels there.
How do you pronounce "Mnje"? Anyways, this
tune about drinking is way cool—delivered in his
patented Sensurround baritone voice. Comes with
cool picture sleeve and a mini-discography.
Cheezability Rating: 90
Sounds Sensational — The Mike Samms
Singers (EMI - Studio 2 Stereo)
This one goes straight to the Hall o' Shame, do not
pass go! This is the sort of music you'd expect from
a chase scene in a '60's European comedy or
something!! Crazy vocal group meandering by
some of the whitest people in the world, this one
has to be heard to be believed! I
Cheezability Rating: 100
And well finish up with a few contributions
from my own bad self:
The Six Million Dollar Man, Volumes 1 A 2
(Peter Pan)
A whole wacko'stories about Ixe Major's tour de
force of the '70s: Steve Austin. Each LP has four
way-cool stories with pretty good imitations of
Austin and Goldman. Best part: they include the
ultra neat "bull -buh-buh bull" sound Austin makes
when he uses his bionic eye!! Also contains a lot
of reality stretching and cheezy dialogue. Can't
figure out why record one is about a quarter inch
thick, though.
Cheezability Rating: 100
Our Country 'Tis of Thee — A bunch of
Americans, I guess (Peter Pan)
Just got this one in time for the USA self love-in.
This is a musical history erf' the US complete with
annoying singing kids. Oddly enough, they
mention the New Deal but seem to have forgotten
the civil war, slavery and the two world wars.
Anyone surprised?
Cheezability Rating: 80
I got both, of the above at the Kingsway flea
market for about 50 cents. They have many copies
and, no, they didn't pay me to plug them!
South ofthe Border Volume 2—The 50 Guitars
of Tommy Garrett (London)
The legendary 50 axes do it one more time to
Mexico! Superconductor's mentors come up with
the usual high quality, cutaway folding sleeve and
limp music inside. This is the guy that produced
Telly, so look out for any LPs from this series for
overwhelming cheeziness!!
Cheezability Rating: 84
Well, that's my load for now. A big fat thanx
to all you hipsters who donated vinyl. I'll send you
cool stuff in a few weeks!!! Keep the stuff coming
and don't forget about the Psamplers, volumes 1
& 2, which can be yours for a paltry $ 10 (for both).

Bad Religion • Recipe For Hate - What can you say about these punk rock legends? They play sold-out shows
around the globe, they have one of the most successful totally independent record labels, and they sell thousands of their own
albums on their own terms. So is Recipe for Hate a lame compromise of Bad Religion's ideals? As if. Recipe for Hate simply
punk rocks. IMPORT - 16.98 CD/9.98 CS
Babes in Toyland • Painkiller/ Flaming Lips ® Transmissions- New Mini- LP's from a couple of bands
who put out two of 1992s best releases. Painkiller contains new material plus live versions of tunes from Fontanelle - over 40
minutes of music! Then there's Oklahoma's Flaming Lips with Transmissions, the follow up to Hit to Death. Loud stuff, man!

acoustically bankrupt Plaza of Nations, don't worry! The much anticipated new album from that band from Washington. D.C. is
out! This time. Fugazi have not only rediscovered the distortion function on their amplifiers, they're also playing with new found
youth and vigor. So get in on the kHhaker. kids, but please - no stage diving,     i u dq dt _ 11 oo rn/fi 98 CS
Urge Overki II ® Saturation - Saturation owes more to Rio Grande-era ZZ Top (hey - the first step is admitting it) than to
mid- to late-70's KISS or Boston. The rocking tunes and unlikely production skills ofthe Butcher Bros. (Kriss Kross) make this
one from the men from U.R.6.E. a sure-fire hit Take a ride, catch a wave and pour yourself a long, tall cool one cuz people all
around you will be falling in love to this album. 14 93 CD/9.98 CS
