K-W responds to local Nazi Movement by Dmyl special

to Imprint

Hatred and fear are on the rise in Kitchener-Waterloo. Nazis are organizing in this community. They don’t call themselves Nazis, but they listen to audiotapes of Hitler, they preach the supremacy of white European culture and white-only homelands and nations+ they follow historical revisionists who vehemently deny the Holocaust occurred, and they threaten local anti-racist activists with death. Over I50 people participated in an event promoting racial equality at Victoria Park on Saturday, May 29. The Walk for Harmony was organized by two Cameron Heights students, Heather Bean and Elena Abel, after finding Heritage Front promotional materials outside a local public school. The Heritage Front held a recruitment meeting at European Sound Imports in Kitchener on May IS. Heritage Front founder Wolfgang Droege advocated the virtues of white supremacy to the 80 people and 7 protesters in attendance while supporters stuck out their arms in the Nazi salute. Droege denies that the Front is a Nazi movement, claiming that they are only working for the preservation of white European culture rather than the German race.

In Ottawa, on May 29, the Front held a recruitment rock concert at the Ottawa-Carleton Boys and Girls Club. Fifty of the 600 protesters followed approximately 50 Front members to Parliament Hill, where the Front members turned and attacked the protesters. The Front will be holding a rock concert recruitment in K-W in a few weeks. A local activist who attended the Kitchener rally expressed dismay at the attendance, noting that more people would be needed to fight the Front. The elderly woman is under police protection, as she has received frequent threats after being taped having a verbal confrontation with British revisionist David Irving. Local Front supporter and owner of European Sound Imports Michael Rothe had sponsored speaking engagements for Irving in Kitchener and Milton, scheduled for Remembrance Day 1992. Irving was ejected from Canada on the basis of propagating hate. Featured speakers at the racial equality rally included Teri Saunders and Mona Zentner, community consultants on race relations forthe Police Services Board. Waterloo city councillor Andrew Tetegdi and a local police staff sergeant addressed the need to promote the principles of respect of diversity required in a multi-cultural democracy, and both lamented the rise in racial hatred that their uncles had

fought to end during the second world war. Saunders, a long term local activist for racial tolerance, spoke eloquently aboutthe harassment and assaults many youths of colour have endured. She applauded our police for recently intervening in a racially based beating at a K-W school. Sixteen-year-old Anagel Saunders, who is “proud to be the daughter of Teri Saunders,” acknowledges experiencing “bigotry in the K-W school system, not because of my colour, but because of white supremacy.“’ Zentner described receiving numerous death threats from members of the Front and having her home burnt down. Zentner was instrumental in creating a document released last falt describing the unified stance of local ethnic-based organizations denouncing local white supremacist actions. A new Promoting Raciul Equality workgroup is being mobilized out of the Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG). In Ottawa, the promotional posters of an OPIRG-Carleton Workgroup were criminally altered so that people arrived at a Nazi meeting instead of an OPIRG function. Other OPIRG posters that were intended to draw antiracist protesters to the Heritage Front recruitment rock concert were also altered in an attempt to reduce the number of protesters.

Prof. Jim Kalbfleisch will be WV’s vice-president (academic) and provost effective July I, 1993, for a five-year term. The appointmentwas announced Wednesday, June 2, in a memo from UW president James Downey. The appointment was approved by the senate Monday evening and the board of governors Tuesday evening, in confidential sessions. Kalbfleisch has been associate provost (academic affairs) for the past three years. Previously, he served as dean of the faculty of mathematics for more than three years. Kalbfleisch was one of three shortlisted candidates who faced the universiv community in an open forum last month, and the president’s memo today says that the nominating committee’s choice was made “after lengthy deliberations, taking into accountcommerits and feedback received.” The memo also says that “a review of the position of Vice-President, Academic & Provost will be done in the

context of a larger organizational review, which I intend to initiate in the coming months as I become better ’ acquainted with how the institution functions. “Though I do not wish to speculate on what form a revised structure might take, I feel it is likely that the duties and title of the position of VicePresident, Academic & Provost, as currently defined, will change upon completion of this review.” Kalbfleisch, who became a lecturer at UW in I 964, holds an appointment as a professor in the department of statistics and actuarial science in the faculty of mathematics. He completed his master’s (I 964) and PhD (1966) degrees at UW, after earning a bachelor of science degree at the University of Toronto in 1963. He is the author of Probability und Statistical Inference, which is used as a student textbook. His research interests include combinatorial mathematics, statistical inference and applied statistics. Born in Cambridge, Ont., he was raised in Orangeville where his father wasa high school mathematics teacher. Kalbfleisch is married with three children.

The Ontario University Student Alliance received a vote of confidence from the Ontario New Democratic Party government in May as the fledgling student lobby group was named to a committee that will examine last year’s changes to stu-

dent assistance. Rick Martin, a representative of students at the University of Toronto, has been named to the Student Assistance Review Committee. The Universiey of Waterloo’s Federation of Students president Catherine Coleman called this appointment a victory for OUSA and for university students in Ontario. “The appointment gives OUSA

part-time

a direct voice at the table,” Coleman said in an OUSA press retease, “and we intend to continue our fight for a more progressive and effective student aid program for undergraduate students step.”

rightatgovernment’s

door-

“OUSA has no place at the table,” Ken Craft, chairperson of the Ontario Federation of Students, told Imprint. “There have been no referenda (on membership) and (the member universities) have no mandate.” David Scott, an assistant to the Minister of Education, told Imprint that OUSA approached the Ministry for membership in various committees and task forces and that the size of OlJSA’s membership was a deciding factor. “It is hard to ignore that many students,” Scott said. The Student Assistance Review Committee will have a tworpart mandate, according to committee chairperson Jamie McKay. “It wilt participate in a review of the impact of Ontario Student Assistance Program changes, the elimi-

nation of the grant portion‘ of the program,‘* McKay said. McKay works for the Ministry of Educ&n’s Student Support Branch. “It will also provide advice on an income contingency loan repay-

ment pilot project,” McKay continued. The pilot project, set to occur this fall, will see 1,000 third and

fourth-year

students, who would not

normally be eligi bte for OSAP loans, loaned $2,500 each. Craft and the OFS are not enamoured of this part of the committee’s mandate. “I made it very clear (to the committee) that the OFS wilt see that the pilot project never sees the light of day,” Crati said. The OFS has never supported an income contingency loan repay ment plan, Craft said. The OFS supports moves toward an all-grant student assistance program. “All that we’ve seen of income contingency being implemented across the world, wherever it is implemented, it leads to higher tuition fees and reduced accessibility to postsecondary education,” Craft said. “(The OFS) would like to scuttle the pilot’ project,” Scott concurred. OUSA’s main policy piank has been the implementation of an in-

come contingency loan repayment plan, in which students’ repayment schedule depends upon their postgraduation income. Scott told Imprint that the pilot project was developed as part &f the cabinet proposal&at made last year’s changes to OSAP. Was OUSA’s position on income contingency the Ministry’s reason for bringing OUSA on board? “it certainly didn’t make the decision any harder,” Scott said.

Flood, provincial Minister of Education Dave Cooke indicated that he wanted to include student opinion in whatever form. “Let me state quite clearly that I have no intention of interfering with how students organize themselves in protection of their interests,” Cooke said in the letter. “I am, however, very interested in hearing from studen?, when we

College acceptance conditional by Dave special

Switzer to Imprint

Like everyone else in Ontario, community colleges face huge cuts in funding from the provincial government A total of $52 million, conditional upon the outcome of the social contract talks, has been cut from this year’s payments to colleges. The government is asking individual institutions to look at their own priorities and become more efficient. Most colleges are sending out conditional offers of admission to firstyear students. Students who have received these offers may not find out for up to two months whether or not they will be accepted. Conestoga College, on the other

hand, sent out unconditional letters of acceptance two weeks ago. Kevin Mullan, Conestoga’s vice president of finance, says the college is trying its best to “do more with less.” With increasing numbers of students and decreasing amounts of funding, the amount spent on individual students has gone down from about $S,SOO per student five years ago to $3,800 per student now. The results, inevitably, are fewer services and larger classes. Mullan foresees tough times ahead in education for the next two to three years. Indeed, two agricultural colleges in Ontario closed last year. Record numbers of first-year students were turned away from the doors of postsecondary institutions last year; even more are expected this year. The Ontario Federation of Stu-

dents is continually lobbying the government on behalf of postsecondary students, but was refused a seat at the social contract table. Ken Craft, chairperson of the OFS, believes that the government has discussed student fees during the social contract talks, even though it explicitly said that the subject would not be on the agenda. What does the future of postsecondary education looklike? The Ministry of Education and Training seems to be focusing on primary and secondary education. “Postsecondary education is not a priority for this government,” says Craft. Right now everyone is waiting for the results of the social contract talks between the government, public service employers, and unions.

not live in Married Student Apartments He took responsibility for the delivery of the original flyers, and stated that he planned another two distributions to an estimated 600 people. Concerning the nature of the work, “Greg” stated that “it’s not easy, but it does get easier.” Employee safety would, in part, be ensured by condom use and the anonymity of the service. Prospective employees “gotta understand what we mean [in the flyer],” he said. Imprint traced the bank account, phone number, and e-mail address. The e-mail ‘address, accessible by any person with an account at the university, is operated by an anonymous file server in Finland. The server does not allow either the sender or the receiver to learn the other’s identity. According to James Black, the Director of the Math Computing Facility, the University has “zero probability of affecting” the e-mail address. There are, however, “policies in place relating to ethical conduct,” and there are precedents for intervention and locking accounts “for all types of behaviour.” He stressed that he had no evidence of anyone at Waterloo abusing their computing privileges. Both the phone number in the flyer and the bank account given prospective clients were registered to a Greg D. Nikolic. The Registrar’s Ofice stated that Nikolic was last registered in UW’s Math faculty in May of 1992. “Typical clients,” according to “Greg”, are University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier students, including some staff members, whom he referred to as “pretty decent people.” In his conversation with the Imprint staff member, “Greg” referred to the lack of sexual experience clients had, claiming most were engineering and math students. “Greg” also said that Black Orchid was still setting up the apanment, as they had “picked it up a few days ago,” though it was already furnished+ “It’s a pretty new agency, only a couple of months old,” he said, stating that

its aim was the creation of a client base for the fall. When an imprint staff member showed up for a previously arranged “appointment”at the Married Students Apartment to verify Black Orchid’s business intentions, he was met by “Greg,” who informed him that the escort had backed out. “Greg” offered to refund the money to a bank account, or schedule another appointment. Black Orchid could not be reached later for comment.

make decisions on matters which will affect them. That is why I wanted to meet with OUSA.” The five universities making up OUSA -- UW, Brock University, Queen’s University, the University of Toronto, and Wilfrid Laurier University -- all seceded from the OFS recently and none have had referenda on membership in OUSA. Both U. of T.‘s Students’ Administrative Council and Queen’s’ Alma Mater Society plan referenda on OUSA membership for October 1993. “It is rather premature for the provincial government to recognize OUSA,” Craft said. “They should have waited a little while, to see what happens with upcoming membership referenda.” In November 1992, the student governments of the five Ontario universities officially launched OUSA as a lobby group for quality of university education. Waterloo students rejected membership in the Canadian Federation of Students in February, 1993 and in the OFS a year earlier. In both referenda, proponents of rejecting membership argued that both lobby groups spent too much time on non-student political issues and not enough on funding, tuition, and student assistance issues.

Canada’s Green Plan includes UW research from UW News Bureau University of Waterloo researchers will be involved in environmental watershed research under the Canada Green Plan’s Eco-Research Program. A grant of $2. I million over three years will allow a “major new crossdisciplinary research initiative” into the sustainable use of water in the Grand River watershed. Ten project leaders and their research teams will work with local municipalities, provincial ministries and regional organizations. They will study existing and emerging problems in water supply and conservation. As well, the research wit1 assess the impacts on aquatic ecosystems from agricultural run-off and urban construction. Policy and management responses and opportunities related to urbanization, water quality and enforcement of environmental laws will also be examined. The project leader is Prof. George Francis of environment and resources studies. Other teams leaders are: Prof. Jim Robinson, environment and resources studies; Prof. Mary Ellen Tyler, urban and regional planning; Prof. Colin Mayfield, biology; Prof. Keith Warriner, sociology; Prof. Steve McCall, health studies; Prof. George Dixon, biology; Prof. Keith Hipel, systems design engineering; and Prof. Ramesh Kumar, economics. This project is the largest multidisciplinary research programever undertaken at UW with the team leaders and 20 other faculty members from I 5 departments in the six faculties, said Joan Hadley, of the university research office. There will also be about 30 training positions for graduate students and several for post- doctoral fellows. The government funding for UW and five other universities totals $ I I .7 million under the research and training program in environmental studies. It invests in interdisciplinary research on Canadian ecosystems with a focus on the interaction between people and the environment. Grants create partnerships and teams that combine skills from the social, natural and health sciences, the humanities and engineering disciplines. These teams will help to build the expertise needed to better understand Canadian ecosystems that are being affected by local, regional or global environmental change.

The program is administered by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council and the Medical Research Council through a tri- council secretariat. When the program was first announced in I99 I, Environment Minister Jean Charest emphasized the need to transform attitudes and behaviors. This is not just to repair the damage already done to the earth’s environment, but to anticipate and prevent future environmental problems. “We live in a complex and integrated environment where cross- disciplinary research and development have become vital to our survival, both

by Jason Suck Media Relations Commissioner Federation of Students Summerfest I is here today! The doors open at Fed Hall on Friday at 8 p-m. and you can partake of the many summer delights -- the Hip 0’ Beef BBQ on the patio for the first I50 people (or until the Fed Staff are asking “Where’s the beef?“), an indoor pool (brush up on your syncho swimming before you come out!), and a “Slime Dive.” The “Slime Dive” consists of various biodegradable substances and assorted and sundry food products. Why would anyone dive in this “spooge,” you ask? Why obviously because buried within the “spooge” are no less than 21 hockey pucks and each puck is individually marked with a prize. Of the 2 I prizes available, three portable CD players are up for grabs, donated by FAST FORWARD Audio. Saturday’s events consist of much the same festivities; the Hip 0’ Beef BBQ, the indoor pool, a volleyball tournament all day for those who want to spectate, and SUM0 Wrestling within Fed Hall. Tickets for Summetfest I are $2 in advance to Feds and $3 to non-Feds or at the door. Also upcoming, Wilfrid Laurier University’s Student Union and Waterloo’s Federation of Students are co-sponsoring a leadership conference at Laurier on June IO- 12. The conference, “Power of Partnership,” includes student council leaders, student union/ student centre managers, and student affairs administrators from all across Canada. The conference will allow these groups to “network” and brainstorm together through “Roundtable” discussions of student issues facing campuses today: campus safety, gender issues, student poverty and the related economics of operating universities and student services. Fed executives will be in attendance. And lastly, this summer’s first student council meeting will be held this Sunday, June 6 at 2 p.m. in the Fed Hall boardroom. All visitors/observers are welcome and you can enter Fed Hall via the kitchen entrance at the back of Fed.

Alumni returning for “Waterloo Weekend” University of Waterloo alumni will be returning to the campus in june for a series of reunions and anniversaries. Waterloo Weekend, which runs from Friday through Sunday (June 4 to 6), will feature reunions for engineering graduates in the classes of 1963, 1968, 1973, 1978, I983 and 1988, and mathematics classes of I968 and 1973. There’ll be a president’s reception for 25th and 30th anniversary classes on Saturday (lune 5) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at St. Jerome’s College, Siegfried Hall. Also planned for the weekend is a 10th anniversary dinner for applied studies alumni and a reunion of St. Jerome’s graduates. On June I2 and 13, WV’s urban and regional planning graduates from the class of I983 will hold a reunion while the kinesiology department is urging grads to “bring your body back” on June I 9 and 20 to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Spaces remain for UW’s European travel/study tour Seats are still available for the University of Waterloo’s travel/study program this August in Germany, Belgium and the Czech Republic. You can check but the sights and soak up the culture, as well as earning academic credit - if you wish. The trip begins Aug. I3 and ends Aug. 30. Total cost, excluding tuition fees, is $3,295, covering airfare, accommodation, local transportation and most meals. For reservations, call (5 19) 888-4002. “It’s an alternative way for people to travel and have the opportunity to learn in a combination of formal and informal settings,” says Don Kasta, manager of UW’s continuing education liaison services. He says the participants will explore, among topics, the transitional period engulfing Germany and other countries in the European community. “They can learn by experiencing the actual locations and by having access to local experts,” Kasta says.

domestically andglobally. Canada needs more experts in a variety of fields who can pool their knowledge in research teams to tackle our environmental problems and find solutions, both technical and social,” Charest said. Another component of the EcoResearch Program funds university research chairs to attract world-class researchers in environmental studies to Canadian universities. As well, the program’s purpose is to train Canada’s next generation of environmental scientists and engineers while aiming to encourage the academic community to address regional ecosystem problems through interdisciplinary research.

faculty, staff, alumni and friends ‘adopt’ library journals The “adopt-a-journal” program at the University of Waterloo’s library is in full swing subscriptions to 30 academic journals are being paid for by faculty, staff, alumni and friends of the university. The program, launched more than five years ago, is a way for the library to free up scarce funds that would otherwise have been spent on the journals. “Academic journals are critical references for our students and faculty,” says Murray Shepherd, university librarian. “They report on the most current research from around the world in a wide range of subjects.” Any journal in the library’s collection may be adopted and that money saved through the program is made available for new titles.

Of atl the recent events happening around the UW community (the Gender issues debate, the KW visitation of Heritage Front white supremacists, or the recently founded prostitution service Black Orchid), there seems to be one common denominator - single mindedness. True, there is not as much in common between white supremacist5 and the Gender issues debate as there is between said supremacists and a prostitution service: the Gender issues debate isn’t based on an immoral act. However, there are elements which pervade each of these areas and many others in our lives. In this week’s letters section, UW chaplain Graham Morbey points out that postmodernism, as a reaction to modernist dogma, seeks to include marginalized groups, seeks to search out non-conformist ideals and include them in its world view. Now this does not necessarily mean that you must agree with ali or any of them - if you constantly added new viewpoints to your reality, you would soon become emaciated with inconsistencies and conflict. You should recognize your past, your personal/historic reality, to be a part of your self at the same time as al lowing other people to realize their own selves. And this is where I think the single mindedness of various groups around town and campus has sprung from - a connection to one’s self. However, if this connection is taken too far, then your self actualization soon becomes a tyrannical force over others. tf you believe too heavily in the right oi your race to be free, OI- of your gender to be empowered, orforyour rightto make money through legal yet immoral methods, then you will more than likely, in your paranoia, overempower yourself to the extent of disempowering others. We see this quite easily in such groups as the Heritage Front. Whose heritage do they represent? Why there own of course. Their’s is the only true heritage for them they suffer from a modernist infection 01 “truth.” Their “truth” has them being the builders and champions of western civilization, but they don’t take the time to wonder ii western civilization is even worTh being proud of. They want to do the same thing Quebec did with their language laws, they want tc legislate culture, which you cannot do. If z culture is worthy of sustenance and life, ther it will survive on its own, it will need no props or legal backing. If we legislate that we car only speak French, can only allow immi. grants with money, or can’t have a man aheae a Gender Issues Board, then we are forcibly excluding other view points and perspectives which could enhance our own lives. Of course these are very distinct exam. pies, and we all see it happening, but WE should also think about all the times were k isn’t so clear. Think about the times where you won’t listen to what is happening around you because you are content with your own reality. There is always more to life than whal you have now. There is more out there thar you will know, more out there than you cav know. But by leaving all that which you dc not, cannot, or choose not to understand misunderstood, then you are missing ou! what makes other people, and other place3 beautiful in themselves. So, with that in mind, I plan to find rnj way to Algonquin Far-k this weekend, get in my canoe, and find out what’s out there. And just maybe I’11learn something.

Effectiveness,

GIB

what

My first impression of Sean McCutcheon, the newly appointed Gender Issues Board chairperson was shaped by Bernard Kearney in the last imprint issue. 1nitial ly, wanting to be fair, I tried to view Sean McCutcheon as an individual with talents unique to his person and tried not to prejudge him because he is a man. Bernard’s defense of Sean in his article, “The Crying Game” made this difficu I because he offers both respect and contempt for the same concerned students. Bernard initially acknowledges the “valid concern among many students that this -new- board wili marginalize women’5 issues, in favour of other social issues...“and assures me that Sean McCutcheon intends to prevent this marginalization from happening. Bernard want5 to know why these concerned people haven’t approached Sean to discuss their concerns and why no woman has applied for the GIB chairperson position,-if they think a woman should head the Board -- and I think he is justified in wanting to know. Unfortunately for Sean, though, Bernard hurls insults to provoke those concerned to action; he writes, ‘*What really pisses me off, and I mean, really pisses me off, is that these self same gripe toads haven’t even bothered their arse to meet the guy,” and “So if there are still any lame-ass tearjerks out there who are still upset that there is a man in charge of the Gender Issues Board, stop whining and do something about it.” Bernard yet mocks other trumpet5 Sean’5 “sensitivity” people’s real need to be heard and taken seriously; he appears to support the validity of the concerns raised by Tammy [Speers] and others, but Iater belittles them with name-calling. If Sean’s “sensitivity” is anything like Bernard’s lack of it, then yes, I must continue to be con-

cerned about the GlB’s ability to deal with women’s issues, and worry about Sean (who Bernard respects!) chairing the GIB. Who wouldn’t be anxious about having a man head a board that deals primarily with women’s issues and safety, when another man, in defending the first, belittle5 those with differing views or concerns as mentioned above?

status, I believe men can Iook at the existing structures and educate themselves. (Let them educate themselves as much as possible -- certainly women cannot be responsible for educating men a5 well as themselves). But women cannot fu Ily understand men’s part in the perpetuation of violence without directly talking to them, any more than men can presume to understand women’s positions without talking to women (or perhaps without actually experiencing life as a woman). That is the gap, and our challenge. It’s obvious that many women do not yet tru& men enough to feel that they will be heard and t-espected in a forum that includes men let alone is head by one. This is why I take Bernard’s (flippant?) comment5 50 seriously. If his impatience with people is typical of the dialogue between women and men, then working to better the status of women will be frustrating, uphill work. There are many legitimate reasons for women’s distrust of structures which men dominate. I scan through the latest Imprint issue and notice that just under thirty per cent of the signed articles and letters are written by women. Why is that? No one is telling women explicitly that they cannot write for or to the Imprint or that they cannot be Imprint staff. But’ implicitly, from the time we are dressed in pink and blue blankets, we are told what we can do, as girls and women; we are generally not encouraged to speak as much or as loudly as boys and men, or to even value what we have to say -- and we run into implicit and explicit negative reinforcements throughout our

women haven’t applied for the position of G/B chair, perhaps it is because no available woman supports the change from Women’s Issues., ” also a legitimate concern that deserves careful consideration rather than quick condemnation. I recognise that Sean is not Bernard, and that one man’s opinions do not depict all men’s opinions, and will still try not to prejudge Sean. However, I lament that Bernard met some peopie’s legitimate concerns adversarially, instead of with respect or an attempt at understanding. 1believe it is essential both that women have a place where they have a voice that will be heard and respected, and that women and men have a place to discuss and work on gender issues together. Can this be the same place? Can either of these thing5 occur in the GIB? I think that will entirely depend upon who gets involved with the GIB and what their objectives are. The status of women and the education of men (and women) are inseparable issues. Violence

frustration in on ourselves and feel like shit ABOUT OURSELVES. Can men relate to this? Yes, in many similar ways both women and men are disempowered -- that is the link from which mutual understanding can come. But each day I experience sexism on various levels and wonder what the hell is going on without having to look very far, no, without even looking. Recently, a guest speaker lecturing to my creative writing class in which at least half of the writers are women, repeatedly referred to the generic writer as a “he”. Can a man relate to being excluded so often from what is real and important? Has Bernard. who wrote three articles for the last issue of Imprint ever imagined his ideas to be insufficient or unworthy of print? Perhaps. But I know I have made a long, difficult journey to reach the point I am at now, where t do think my voice is worth hearing. Can a man relate to that? If so, then we can start at that meeting point. And let go of one-up-one-ship and any other pointless battles we keep getting caught up in. I don’t have definitive answers about the name of the board. Most of the men I’ve talked to like the change to “Gender Issues”; most of the women I’ve talked to feel that the board’s effectiveness in dealing with women’s issues has been compromised by the change. I am concerned that with the board being named ‘*Women’s Issues” men won’t feel that the issues are their issues and very much affect their lives. As a woman, I am concerned that the board’s name “Gender Issues” will make women afraid that women’s experience of violence will be marginalized, and that women wiIJ lose the control they have worked for and had over women’s

Religion & Faith & porno To the editor= The regular column “Religion and Faith in the 20th Century” is a good thing for Imprint. Since all people share a religious dimension, continual exposure to religious and faith issues helps us to reflect on who we are as human beings and the meanings that underlie all our scholarly enterprises. Postmodernism (a reaction against modern scientism) has created vast new possibilities and challenges for all of us with its critique of neutrality and its recognition of a plurality of viewpoints. Christian and other voices can now be heard and respected (not necessarily accepted)

Over the past sixteen months, two referenda have been held to determine undergraduate student membership in the Ontario Federation of Students (OFS) and the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS). On both occasions, University of Waterloo undergrads voted against continuing their membership in these organizations. The main reasons students gave for withdrawing UW’s support are that OFS and CFS do not place enough emphasis on educational issues, that they

issues. In my experience, when women and men meet to discuss issues, men typically dominate the discussion even when more women are present than men, even when the issues being discussed concern the rights of women. It’s not just a matter of stopping our whining and doing something about it. We are entrenched in the many layers of a system which works to discoumge us from controlling our own lives. Of greater importance than what the board is called, I believe, is what it does. If women and men reject this forum to deal with the issues, then both genders will be giving up their voice within the Federation of Students. The vote has been taken, Sean McCutcheon has been hired; if these realities take precedence over the more urgent issues of women’s safety and status then we have allowed the destructive to occur rather than the constructive. Sean’s effectiveness as Gender Issues chairperson and the GIB’s effectiveness in dealing with women’s issues remains to be seen. The power of the GIB does not rest solely with its name or on Sean’s shoulders. The accomplishments made within the GIB will very much depend on who gets involved and what their concerns are, since Sean 1 intends to act as a facilitator. I think it would be dangerous to withdraw from this forum and distrust it wholly without testing it first. If the GIB becomes an ineffective forum to deal with women’s issues and safety, it will, because we have allowed it to become ineffective.

Anne Lumiey special to Imprint

without having to hear continually the condemning voice “but that’s unscientific” or the simplistic “prove it” It is from the above stance that I would like to make a supplementary remarkto Sruce Fraser’s piece on Modern Prophets in the May 2 I, I993 Imprint. It is quite true, as he states, that “olderday prophets critiqued society.” In some sense, modern day prophets get their name from the older-day biblical prophets and do similar work. But this similarity will remain superficial if the content and motivation of the biblical prophets is not borne in mind. Biblical prophets did not speak on behalf of their own clever analysis of social ills. They spoke on behalf of a God who had set down the requirements for the welfare of a particular ancient people. Prophetic warnings and judgemerits were spoken to a community that broke covenant with a God who loved them and had given them freedom to obey rules and regulations that would assure their walk with God and their personal and social wellbeing. When the poorr the widows, the orphans and the weak were maltreated and oppressed, the prophets saw this as a people losing touch with God. Their call was to return to God, which would only be evidenced by a comprehensive social justice. Christians must join the modern prophets in their critique of social injustice. But they must not neglect their “whole story,” the call back to God ‘exampled’I in the prophetic witness of Jesus. Graham

towards changing these organizations and focusing on relevant student concerns, especially underfunding and student assistance.” When the Waterloo Feds withdrew from OFS in 1992, they recognized that a void had been created: UW students were not afiliated with any larger group to lobby the provincial government. In june 1992, the UW Federation of Students began to meet with other students from Brock, Laurier, U of T, and Queen’s. The meetings began as roundtables to share common concerns and to develop ideas to address these concerns. This group of schools has become the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA). Members of OUSA are committed to pursuing realisticand viable solutions to the problems that plague post-secondary education. Since its inception, OUSA has met with a number ofgovernment representatives, including provincial Liberal Party leader Lyn McLeod, Progressive Conservative MPP and education critic Diane Cunningham, and Liberal MPP and education critic Hans Daigler. OUSA has also met with the Canadian Bankers Association (representing all chartered banks) to discuss their role in financing student loan programs and the funding crisis facing universities. Last October, OUSA presented its document entitled “Student For Change: Access,

Student Aid and Financial Recovery for PostSecondary Education in Ontario.” It was released at a press conference at Queen’s Park on November 17, 1992. OUSA occupied the lead editorial in The Globe and Mail, and was the subject of various commentary pieces. After reading the report, UW President James Downey remarked, “I find the proposal that the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance has come up with very encouraging. This is student leadership of the highest quality.” OUSA has also sparked interest at other schools. Of late, the Minister of Education has requested OUSA’s presence on the Ministry’s consultative committee to examine the changes made to student assistance last fall. Anyone interested in obtaining more information about OUSA can contact the Federation of Students office, CC 235, or the OUSA office at 902-481 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2E9, or telephone 4 16-340-87 16.

E. Rehan

One out of every five persons in this world is a Muslim. Muslims are not to be confused with Arabs. Arab Muslims constitute only about twenty percent of the Muslim population of the world. Muslims may be Arabs, Turks, Persians, Indians, Pakistanis, Malaysians, Indonesians, Europeans, Africans, Americans, Chinese, or other nationalities. On the other hand, an Arab could be a Muslim, a Christian, a Jew, or an Atheist. In fact, any person who adopts the Arabic language is called an Arab. There are approximately five million Muslims in North America. They have established academic institutions, community centers and organizations, schools, and places of worship. They live in peace and harmony among themselves and among other groups of people in the society. The rate of crime among Muslims is minimal. Many Muslims in North America are highly educated and they have added to the success of American scientific and technolagical fields. Muslims are the followers of Islam. Islam is not only a political phenomenon but Islam is a total system of living. Islam means submission to the ONE GOD and to live in peace with the Creator, within one’s self, with other people, and with the environment. Muslims believe that they have the record of the last revelation from GOD to mankind (you may call it the last Testament). This record is reserved in a book called The Qur’an (the Holy Book of Islam). However, the Qur’an is not only for Muslims; It addresses all humanity from heads of states to ordinary people (like us). The sole purpose of this series of articles is to highlight some verses from the Qur’an, the book that is still affecting the life of about one billion people. Since the Qur’an is the main

l&he above quote comes from a poem of mine entided (Be My) Cosmic Christ 1993, a collection of reflections that have their origins in my experiences as a young man growing up in Toronto, and living amongst the “other side” of life which is sometimes too sad to celebrate* As a student of religion and the human personality here at the University of Waterloo I find that my day to day reality is too often removed from the actual lives of the people who reside in this twin city of KW. This university’s geographical placement acts as a kind of Vatican city that shelters its students from the often harsh realities that are lived out in the streets ofthis city and others like it across Canada I recognize that there are as weIt some harsh realities unique to the life of university students. Coming out of a big city, I see this shelteredness existing in myself to a degree of which I am almostashamed. Raised in a working class family I sometimes feel guiky about just being here studying, while others are busting their asses iust to have a Dlace to live.

source of Islamic teachings, readings from the Qur’an will give you a better understanding for your Muslim friends. This mutual understanding between Muslims, as a minority in Canada, and their friends from other faiths surely will contribute to the enhancement of the relations, in all its aspects, between the members of the Canadian society. Each article will deal with one or more Qur’anic verses. The selected verse(s) can be classified under one of three main categories. The first one contains some Qur’anic verses which deal with main Islamic concepts and teachings concerning Muslims and all humanity. Some of these concepts and teachings are the same as those of other religions and some are different (from which many are totally misunderstood by many people).The Qur’anic verses, belonging to the second category, describe the position of Islam towards other religions, their basic concepts, and their followers. The last category of verses represents the Qur’anic verses which are challenging all humanity. By the way, none of these challenges has been met by anyone till now !!. The verse of this article represents the idea behind this series of articles. This Qur’anic verse, addressing all humanity, reminds us that we all are the descendants from the same single pair of parents. Putting this concept in mind, we are supposed to deal with all other humans as brothers and sisters. Human tribes, races, and nations are convenient labels by which we may meet, co-operate, and be acquainted with one another. This division of the human race is neither meant for one nation to take pride in its superiority over others nor for one nation to treat another with contempt.

As a foreigner to this region 1 find it quite safe to hang out with my university friends, watch films at the Princess, talk philosophy over a beer at the Huether and then spend the night dancing to the drones of death and Abba at Phil%. (I mention these places ‘CUL’ I like to go there, not as a negative critique of them at all). As a Christian whose theological perspective is very Incarpational (God dwelling within humanness), I find that the more I immerse myself in the world of academia, the more I get cut off from my spiritual roots and the world I grew up in. When I look at my formal education at university I can’t help but be suspicious of the knowledge I am gathering in my studies and the perspectives they represent. Apart from a few American theologians and a strange poet or artist, I find that the views of the working class and those below the poverty line are not represented at all in this institution. It appears quite evident that our system of education represents a certain bourgeois reality, and wishes those who do not share this reality to either obediently imitate it or mock it to death. tn spite of how much I love reading Descartes and Plato, and seeing the odd good film, I must seriously ask myself as I enter my honours year and prepare for Masters work: “Is the university the place where I should be, and if so how much longer can I hide from the working class reality which has shaped my very soul?” The views expressed in this column ure those ofthe author and do not necessarily represent those of every member ofthe UW Student ChristictnMovement or thase of Imprint’s staff or editorial board.

Violenceis tradition? Bah humbug!! Why

the NHL

by Peter Broom mpritlt

sports

Now that Leafs Fever has subsided with Toronto’s elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs, we can all examine the National Hockey League, and its annual quest for that hallowed piece of oversized silverware, with a bit more objectivity and a bit less passion (Habs fans are excused, of course, since their team is still in it). The point that I am going to make has been made many times before and each spring the NHL provides ample evidence to support it. Despite the brilliant history of this league and this game, the I &team tournament to decide the Stanley Cup champions does more to embarrass the NHL and undermine the game of hockey than does any other major, professional sport’s playoff system. And that’s pretty hard to do, considering how ludicrous the NHL’s regular season is. In the playoffs, fighting is replaced by a negligent style of officiating, but both blights are only symptoms for the NHt’s lack of ability to manage violence in its game. First of all, fighting. The Don Cherrys of this world say that efforts to cut back fighting in the NHL have increased incidents involving sticks. If prevented by the rules from settling a score using fists, the argument goes, players will resort to using their sticks to do the same job.

is the laughingstock

This argument views highsticking as some sort of barometer of violence that cannot be controlled by the rule structure of the game. Hold on just a minute. Highsticking is an illegal act, according to the rules of hockey. If a player is called for highsticking, he will be sent to the box with at least a minor penalty. If enforcing some other area of the rules increases the occurrence of highsticking (an offence with important safety considerations: see how long your NHL career lasts after some lumbering defenceman carves out one of your eyes), then obviously highsticking needs to be penalized_- more strongly. Now, the playoffs. Columnistsand fans alike have pointed out the inconsistency of officiating in this year’s NHL playoffs. One of the most obvious examples is Don Koharski, who called I7 penalties in one game and only I in another. Clearly, this is a huge barrier to acceptance of the NHL by the mainstream American sports fan. In no other major professional team sport is there such a chasm between the style of officiating, and hence violence of play, in the regular season and that of the playoffs. Sure, we all love to root for the underdog (and we had plenty of chances

New directives

to do so this year with the four conference finalists all finishing third in their divisions in the regular season) but it is clear why there are so many upsets. The teams which succeed in the regular season tend to be the ones with the most talent. In the post-season, with the rule book collecting dust and referees’ whistles rusting with disuse, the slower teams can rely on clutching, grabbing, and hooking to neutralize faster and more talented teams. Not to mention fighting. Certainly, this activity is more rare in the playoffs, as the stakes of getting your team penalized increase. But the temptation to fight also increases as both teams get frustrated with the officials’ siIence.

Players would not have to resort to fighting if they knew that an illegal infraction would, in fact, be penalized by the officials. Proponents of “let *em play” hockey point out that laissez faire officiating is fair, allowing both teams to violate equally. They rightly point out that Leaf fans can hardly complain about Wayne Eretzky remaining in game six of the Campbell Conference final after h Isticking Doug Gilmour when Gilmour himself headbutted an opponent in an earlier series and escaped ejection. The fairness of playoff officiating is not the point. Officials want to avoid the appearance of deciding a game’s outcome with a call; they want to allow teams to determine who wins and who loses. But if a player does something that should, under the rule book’s description, constitute a penalty, isn’t it the player who is deciding his own team’s fate by risking an act that would make his team shorthanded? Here’s a hypothetical situation: Gretzky’s slash takes out Gilmour’s

eye instead ofjustcuttingopen his chin. Toronto’s MVP is on the way to the hospital instead of on the ice killing the last few seconds of Anderson’s penalty and Cretzky pots the winner. Would it not seem fairly obvious that the notion of letting players decide their own fate has been taken a bit too far? Any player can say to himself, 1’11 decide my team’s fate by seriously injuring the other team’s star. Cherry would say,“that’s hockey” or “you can’t change the game’s traditions.” Bullshit. In the National Basketball Association, zone defences are illegal, primarily to encourage superstar confrontations and high-scoring games. In the National Football League, over a decade ago, rules restricting pass defenders were introduced to give the edge to offence and encourage passing over running. I’m sure that, at the time, people who claimed that zone defences in basketball were “part of our culture” or that cornerbacks being able to bump receivers all of the way down the field was “just partofthegame” were treated with the same credibility as charter members in local Flat Earth chapters. Cherry and his ilk should be regarded as such today. Other sports are capable of evolving into products more desired by contemporary sports fans. Why does hockey have to be the dinosaur of the professional sports world?

Scott Deneau with Huellas The Commerciul kern, Maryhill May 21, 1993

by Anne special

Lumley to Imprint

Huellas and the Scott Deneau Sand, two distinct local bands, charmed the crowd at the Commercial Tavern in Maryhill, Friday May 21. I’ve seen both these bands play since their emergence into the local scene and they continue to evolve, developing their original material, becoming tighter musically, and gaining a wider appreciative audience. Huellas (Footsteps in Spanish) has been performing in the area for a year and a half. Luis Abanto from Peru, Balmore Velasquez from El Salvador, andjeremy Moyer and Brian Suderman, both Canadians, make up Huellas. They play mostly instrumental arrangements of both traditional and original Latin American songs. Their mastery of the various Latin0 instruments give the band its energy. The infectious enthusiasm of these four smiling men and the indulgent rhythm of their music always

inspires me to dance. Watching Luis’ spirited performance on the panflutes is particularly appealing. Huellas will be playing at Pop the Gator’s Latin American night with Cana Brava, another dynamic local band, on June 17, and again at the Grad House on June la. I first saw Scott Deneau play at the Grad House three years ago, sitting on a stool, jeans faded at the knees, letting his rich voice and lyrics speak for chemselves. Well, he’s not as shy as he was then, and his music has grown in its power and scope. The line from one of his newer songs, “Tad Too Shy” -- “got my hair slicked back, my black boots on/ And my Fruit of the Looms are singing your song“ -- would seem to have us forget he ever once was that timorous young man. Lisa Unrau and Ben Martin complete the trio which has been playing together since February. While for the most part Lisa performs beautiful vocal harmonies and Ben plays his rollicking country cello, the trio plays a musical chairs of sorts, passing around a harmonica, tambourine, the guitar, and the lead on vocals. Ben even does a

little groovy scat singing on “I Write the Bible.” The band is definitely folk in its sound and lyrical content. Scott has chronicled people’s life experiences in his music, with insight and some social critique. One powerful piece, “Fists of Rage” takes a good look at domestic violence, “She is bound by fists of rage, dragging her down day to day/ Someday she will get away but she’s bound by fear.” Both Huellas and The Scott Deneau Band will be performing in the line-up of two dozen hot Canadian acts at the Maryhill Music Festival to be held at the Commercial Tavern, June I I -I 3.

“The Mahones: Acoustic Irish Punk.” “Mahone” would seem to allude to “pogue mahone,” the same Gaelic expression for “kiss me arse” from which the Pogues took their name. So the very posters for this gig gave me a flashback to the early %Os, when cover bands regulariy hit Kitchener’s Coronet with monikers like “The Lizard Kings: Tribute to the Doors” and “The White: Tribute to Led Zeppelin.” Now this phenomenon has hit one of my alltime fave bands, the Pogues. More sad co-opting of alternative culture. As a Pogues cover band, the Mahones were OK. There were some atrocities, like the barely-recognizable take on “If I Should Fall from Grace with God,” but, their version of “Streams of Whiskey” was more typical,. in its bouncy faithfulness, to the original. They had all the cool instruments (fiddle, accordion, tin whistle, mandolin) and even had the accents

Their original songs were competent but hopelessly derivative. and seemed like a great deal of wasted effort. Why take the trouble to write a batch of songs that still sound exactly like the Pogues? Why b&her to construct such a flimsy pretence of originality? There were times when the Mahones hinted that they might one day become something more, most notably in the long songs that closed off each set. But at no point did they really sound like anything more than a bunch ofguys who wish they were the Pogues. Worse, the show was further damaged by serious pacing problems: the Mahones did two short sets, with a very long break between them, thereby losing most of the momentum they had built up in the first set All in all, a disappointment. As for War Wagon, my favourite local band (and I’m not just saying that ‘cause I know them), their set was a little disappointing as well. Primarily because it was too short: the Mahones decreed that they could only play for a half-hour. But the Wagoneers didn’t seem as passionate onstage as they have in the past. On the plus side, though, they premiered some strong, interesting new material, so we can look forward to seeing them when they have more than 30 minutes to play with.

It seems to be a tradition here in southern Ontario for young bands to release decent demo tapes and then, just as they get the breaks, record a CD hindered by over-production and tame music. With their release, Fishing in the Fountain of Youth, UW’s own The Rhinos have continued the spirit of this tradition. Maybe it’s just the lackadaisical energy level, compared to their hopping stage presence, that pulls The Rhinos into mediocrity, but the new CD seems a little too clean and pretty in comparison to their previous release Elephants and Bees.

With that said, there are some decent tunes on the album, most notably “A Fantastic Place To Be,” which hovers between moody brooding and vacillating falsetto. Ironically enough, for a band with a quirky pop-rock reputation, the most authentic songs are those which stray from any fasttempoed jaunt. “Crazy Little World” fills the role of the roaming ballad wellI that is, until the boys tag on an unfortunate wanton anticlimax. TherestoftheCD,thoughcatchy at points, focuses on the varied musical styles The Rhinos like to play. From the eponymous “Psychedelic Billy and the Zanies of Sorrow” to the Errot Blackwood (formerly of Messenjah) led “Celebrate Life,” the CD sounds like a southern Ontario Lenny Kravitz tribute. The Rhinos like it too many ways to be successful at any one. But still, they’re a young band yet, and with any luck they might regain their demo tape form and retain the poise of “A Fantastic Place To Be.” Until then, I expect we’ll be seeing them around the local bar scene frequently, hearing them on campus radio exclusively, and knowing that they will get better, eventually.

After J. Mascis booted him out of Dinosaur Jr, Lou Barlow decided to devote more time to his other gig, Sebadoh. And in the past four years, Barlow has not only released about three times as many records as Dinosaur, but also distinguished himself as a much, much better songwriter than his old bandmate/rival. Unfortunately, Barlow remains committed to his vision of Sebadoh as a three-way democracy. That means that songwriting duties are split more or less evenly between all three bandmembers. And while that does make for more vari,ety -- Jason Loewenstein and Eric Gaffney are quirkier, more eccentric writers than Barlow -- in the end Bubble & Scrape

3 by GeoflHill special to Imprint Hey, hey, hey lollapalosers! Comin’ at ya here is a key, vital component to this year’s fest. (And no, Rage Unplugged is not being ignored.) What we’re talking about is the latest cathartic vent from les Claypooi, whose main gig as Primus head honcho (bassist extraordinaire and vocatist of the damned) is featured here. And by the way, Fishbone in the next Imprint. So, Pork Soda, what’s it all about! Well, it is without a doubt pure Primus from start to finish. By that we mean quirky bass-emphasised arrangements+ tight musicianship from the Stew Copeland school of timekeeping, and mostly unintelligible lyrics coming straight from the depths of something that is Les’s mind. To whit: “I pull the blinds then I take my clothes off. Dance around the house like nature boy. My genitalia and pectoral muscles aren’t quite I would like them to be. But you don’t see me. No one can see me” (“Nature Boy”). What serves as Les’s inspiration is best explained in DMV: *‘When I need relief I spell It THC. Perhaps you know

j(POP. I t \

makes me yearn for a Lou Barlow solo record. The genius of Sebadoh’s newest, though, is that (like the best of Husker Dti’s work) it manages to fuse very different songwriting personalities into a (fairly) cohesive whole. Barlow, Loewenstein and Gaffney all rotate instruments and lead vocal chores throughout the album (each writer taking the lead on his own material), but as a whole Bubble & Scrupe sounds uniquely Sebadoh. Nonetheless, one of the three does stand out, and that’s Lou Barlow. His seven contributions are classically constructed but not predictable, emotional -- sentimental, even -- but not sappy. His obsession is lost love, which he alternately treats with a sigh (“Soul and Fire”) and a sneer (“Forced Love”). Beautiful stuff. As for the other two, their stuff just isn’t as masterful as Barlow’s. Loewenstein’s work is interestingly bizarre, while Gaffney’s is more selfindulgent. And if neither of them has Barlow’s knack for an instantly commanding, affecting tune, they at least keep the proceedings diverse, and altogether Sebadoh has come up with the coolest twitchy guitar vibe of the year so far.

vaguely what I mean. I sit back and smoke away huge chunks of memory. As I slowly inflict on myself a frontal lobotomy. Call it pointless.” Aside from Les’s other-worldliness, what is to be noticed on Pork Soda is the distinct lackof potential hits that drew mass attention to Primus after their Bill and Ted career move, uh cameo. That means no Tom Waits reprise of “Tommy The Cat” and no “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver II.” The lead track, “My Name Is Mud,” is a catchy, but plodding number that sets the stage for the whole album. Fascinating, enlightening even, but for the most part just too damn sluggish. Let’s be honest here though, it’s Primus, so it’s cool no matter what And at least they didn’t sell out.

What’s in a name? Uniqueness, difference. That’s why we all have different names, and why bands have different names. Although Porno for Pyros is only one-half ofJane’s Addiction, with Farrell as vocalist and Stephen Perkins on drums, it is easy to tell who the band’s driving force is. The music differs somewhat from what Farrell orchestrated on Ritucrl de lo Hubitucl, but it seems pointless to have a new name when he’s only replaced two members of the band. Regardless, what we have here is more Jane’s Addiction music under the name Porno for Pyros. In a sense, it follows the same progression that the last three Jane’s Addiction albums have: less raw energy and more studio mixing. There is nothing, for example, on this album that approaches the intensity of “Pigs in Zen” or “1%” on their I987 live recording. Nor are there any songs with the energy level of the immensely overplayed “Been Caught Stealing” (commonly known as “the barking dog song”), which is probably what a lot of people were hoping for. Nonetheless, Farrell’s ability as lyricist and composer remains outstanding, simultaneously complex and somehow brilliantly clear. And when held up to other current releases, like this not-dead-yet fad called rap. . . well, the comparison is hyperbolic beyond words. Porno for Pyros are playing Toronto’s Concert Hall on the fifteenth of this month, and if a spare ticket can be found, 1 doubt you’ll be disappointed.

by Derek Weiler Imprint stan Kernel, the new EP by the supergroup Seam (featuring members of the Lillies and Bitch Magnet -- Mac from Superchunk has split), further solidifies their status as a decent singles band. No more, no less, and no shame in that -- they find themselves in mighty fine company. The two originals, “Sweet Pea” and “Kernel,” could be out-takes from last year’s Seam debut Headsparks. Relying more on that cool scratchy guitar sound than on tunefulness, they meander in an appealing way, going nowhere but at least ensuring that the trip is pleasant. My favourite Seam moment remains “Which Way to Go?” from an earlier single. Their lilting, angelic and utterly beautiful cover of the Big Boys song is something of an anomaly when compared to the rest of their catalogue. But”Driving the Dynamite Truck,” from Ke&, does comes close to that one in wistful

atmosphere.

the bat of an eyelash Moncton’s Eric’s Trip have vaulted from oblivion into one of Canada’s most promising new bands. That promise has been put to the crucible these past three months as they’ve released, in various forms, no less than a cumulative album’s worth of material, the results of which are all fairly impressive. Their six-song Peter EP, released on Sloan’s Murderecords label, was recorded in guitarist Rick White’s basement on a four-track recorder. Some ofthe songs (notably lead-track”Need”) sound accordingly roughshod but others (such as “Listen” and “Deeper”) are suprisingly clear. Despite the inconsistency in sound-quality though, the songs on Peter are never anything less than remarkable. At one instance they’ll throw expectedly Sonic driving punk at you (“Listen”), and then bliss-outwith some acoustic dream-pop reminiscent of the Boo Radleys (such as “Tangles” and “Deeper”). They’ve got their own intimate sound however and, all in all, Peter’s a great effort. Songs About Chris is the follow-up EP and Eric’s Trip’s first release on Seattle’s celebrated Sub Pop label. The production here, again via the basement, is cleaner than before but the distortion (as on “Hurt”) remains as gorgeous as ever. The Ef’s centre-piece, “Listen”, re-appears from Peter. Since it’s one of their most powerful tunes, Sub Pop included it on their debut coltaboration but there’s only a very minor difference between the two recordings. In fact, they’re practically duplicates except for the newer version being slightly less abrasive. Ideally, the peter version (my preference) will be played on college radio and the Chris version might be marginally more ac-

The production quality on the new Sub Pop version is predictably superior but worth

revealing as it does Eric’s

Trip’s assured confidence in this far more challenging arena. The four-tracksub Pop NeverMind The Molluscs EP is a sampler of four Maritime bands; Sloan and jale from Halifax, and Eric’s Trip and Id&e du Nord from Moncton. All four are impeccably recorded, (Eric’s Trip so much as forgoing the basement in favour of a real studio), but I fear that as commendable as all of the songs are, none of them feature the bands at their very best. (Id&e du Nord being given the benefit of the doubt since this is the first I’ve ever heard by them.) The main attraction is Sloan who more than anyone else are responsible for the Maritime scene’s whole focus of attention in the first place. Their contribution, “Pillow Fight”, is a solidif-unspectacular track that features tuneful guitar and pop harmonies embroidering a driving rhythm. The all-girl jale, favouring the sweet 4AD pop sounds of the Throwing Muses, 8elly, and the Breeders, etc., don’t sound anything like the punkers they’ve styled themselves as. But “Lung” is a nearly-great track which fuels the speculation: Is Sub -Pop stealing our best talent? The Eric’s Trip track, “Blue Sky For Julie/Smother”, captures both the band’s sides as they introduce the number as a lush acoustic dreamer before blazing into a straight-ahead rocker with Polvo-like breaks and bridges. It’s a decent song, convincing enough for a sampler, but perhaps not representative of the punk rot k superstars at their absolute strongest. The compilation’s final track, “lodine Eyes”, is by the French-Canadian band Id4e du Nord. Their Red Albino-like offering serves the sampler’s purpose well since it makes one interested enough to check them out further. That’s no less true of the other three bands, but their contributions don’t particularly measure how fabulous they really are. Nevertheless, none of Molluscs disappoints by any stretch of the imagination. If anything, the EP as a whole makes a terrific point: that should the Canadian music industry reguireagood kick in the ass, (as it sometimes does), some hitherto obscure down-Easters might just be the boys (or girls) to deliver it. For my money, Eric’s Trip giving ‘em a desperately-needed slap upside the head while they’s at it.

his or her

worthless veins to criticize it just to looklike he or she is above all that popular crap. Now this all may look like an excuse, and I guess to some extent it is, but it all comes down to this -Suede are not as great as you’ve been told. Lead singer Brett Anderson is pretty hot, I mean I’d sfeep with him, but he sounds a whole lot like he belongs in Rush. He’s got that sort of whiny nasally-challenged high-pitched kind of voice that reminds one of Geddy Lee. His lyrics, which are supposed to be “sexually ambiguous,” are more often than not best described as just plain “bad.” Guitarist Bernard Butler is the most talented of the lot. His blazing guitar picks up songs like “Animal Nitrate” (easily the best song on the album) and takes them from being just good to great (although you could still swear Anderson’s going to break out into “Bytor and the Snow Dog” at any moment.) It’s simply a case of the NME and the Melody Maker needing to boost sales by creating a sensation about a band, and if any band was ever “made” by the NME, it was Suede. By providing them with front covers, fawning over their singles, and labelling them the best band of the year, they made their careers and created a demand for a product that isn’t anywhere near the claims of the advertising. And they’re not half as sexually

tried not to do, that is using

innuendd and lyrical sleight of hand to cover up an inability to articulate. The worst thing about this album is that Suede aren’t even close to mastering the complexities involved in creating a good slow song, yet that’s what most of the album is comprised of. On the other hand, they pushed a cracker of a song like “Painted People” to the Animal Nitrate B-side. (See what I mean, now just wait for the Suede Japanese imports.) As such, the album would have been much better served by including a few more rockers, and leaving off rubbish like “Sleeping Pills” which are perfect examples of Morrissey’s lyrical prowess over Anderson. Where “Sleeping Pills” clunks along with crap lines like ‘You’re a water sign, I’m an air sign’ and the music lulls you into much the same effect as Valium, Morrissey’s “Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together*’ is a work of both lyrical and musical resplendence in comparison. Their song titles show even less imagination. One song is called “She’s not Dead” (a slow mournful dirge) and the Metcll Mickey b-side is “He’s Dead” (a slow sorrowful dirge), not to mention both “Animal Nitrate” end “Animal Lover.” Not only that, but the themes running through the whole album‘are slightly less than drivel. But rather than describe them here’s a helpful Suede chart to let you skip tistening to the album: Song one: They’re taking drugs. Song two: They’re taking drugs and having sex. Song three: She’s dead, and she fucked a guy in a car. Song four: They’re having sex. Song five: They’re having weird sex. Song six: They’re dying. Song seven: She’s dying. Song eight: They’re having sex in a car. Song nine: She sells meat. (some sex thing, I bet). Song ten: They’re having sex. Song eleven: They wish they were dead. Saviours of British rock my ass.

Japan’s Waves:

Contemporary japanese Fibreworks The Cambridge library ond Gallery 2nd May - 12th June

by Sandy Atwal Imprint stm In the late 20th century, Japan has cultivated an image of being a technological giant in our global community, the production centre of the world’s electronic nerve network, and the leading edge in all of our engineering development. However, thanks to a new show at Cambridge’s Library and Gallery, the softer side of Japan, as seen in its artistic community, is being brought to the west through a new art show,

Waves: Contemporary Fi breworks.

Japanese

Although it wasn’t until the twentieth century that the strong traditions of weaving and dyeing were fully developed in Japan as an artistic form, Western influences have overwhelmed the tapestry traditions of the East and allowed the development ofthis ardorm

fine as a viable means of expression and function. Many of Japan’s fibreworks have developed from a purely functional requirement, especially in the rebuilding of postwar Japan whereby new buildings permitted not merely exploration in architecture, but also new areas of exploration in the tapestry which would adorn them. In 1976 and 1977, the National Museum of Modern Art in Kyoto held an exhibition called Fibreworks of Europe and Japan and later Fibreworks of the Americas and Japan, and through such exposure the medium continued to develop and grow. The beauty of the work is that it combines the expressiveness of the artist with the craftsmanship of the artisan, allowing for a thoroughly modern functional aesthetic. All of the exhibits use the nature of the material at hand to create a striking third dimension to the works which move beyond the two-dimensional world of paintings and are in some ways even more expressive than sculptures. Like Eastern philosophy, the emphasis is on nature, on using man-made materials to reflect back

Kurtz wields power like a mallet, both in his professional life as chief psychiatrist, and also in his role as mentor to his disturbed (but very rich and influential) patients. Lilah hopes and prays that she can conjure “Marlowe” in time to prevent Kurtzfrom wreaking havoc on the world; luckily enough, Christopher Marlowe+ a visiting professor from Harvard and new employee of the Parkin Institute, moves into her duplex. And now the complicated stuff begins. Headhunter is peopled with a parade of the grotesque: wealthy, idle, upper-class stiffs (each with his or her own personal neuroses); corrupt professionals, preying on the mentally ill and poor; children, damaged beyond their senses, forgotten and disregarded. The mysterious plague that descends upon the city every year indicates conditions of moral and social decay, that no one seems willing to acknowledge or even stop. This is not a happy novel, but in plumbing the depths of madness, psychosis, and murder, Findley confronts “darkness” head-on. I hope I’m not discouraging you This is a superior novel, really, with strong elements of mystery and suspense. The plot isn’t so much a jigsaw of clues and pointers as it is layers of meaning; the layers provide contained stories in themselves, but together,

Findley, as always, writes with elegant precision, wit, and style. Headhunter is truly a treat -- don’t deny yourself the pleasure.

His delivery of Gary Ross’ funny but not hilarious dialogue is loose and faid-back, and because our blessed, blessed lord has somehow persuaded Reitman to keep the camera at a discreet distance, the actor’s timing takes precedence over the filmmaker’s, We’re invited, not obligated, to laugh. Little things mean a lot: we feel a moviemaker is being generous when he takes the time for throwaways about obnoxious tour guides, pens inscribed “The White House”, and guestappearantes by, senators and .political commentators.

Indian Summer’s dopey, sit-corn blandness follows obvious rhythms; Mike Binder has written and directed this flick without a trace of personality. The structure figure-eights around recurring gimmicks--a moose, a boxing ring, pranks. (When defter hands do this, we praise the use of “motifs”, but that’s when they mean something.) Each character has his own special concern, and at the end each learns her own token lesson, and none of it has an iota to do with people or how people are with each other.

Detect a certain sameness? Well, it’s only the beginning. With four men and four women coming to terms with what it’s like on the other side of the big 30, you just know this film is going to be all about sex. They’re young, they’re beautiful, they’re camping out together one nostalgic weekend. But it’s not about sex at all, only sex appeal. Everyone’s always flashing their teeth and chortling, like in a commercial for Canadian beer. The movie fails to achieve its apparent goal, a rehashing of The 6ig Chill, chiefly because there’s such an emptiness at its core we don’t believe these characters have any history together. It’s as if the teens in The Breakfast Club met in detention fifteen years later. They don’t havegrown-up problems, they’re oversized kids; just as the children in the protracted camp flashbacks are merely miniature adults. They have neither gained nor lost anything in two dec-
