Waterloo students can probably expect service cuts as early a s this term as result of a recent provincial government decision to outlay certain auxiliary fees. The university was expecting a revenue reduction as the computer fee ban comes into effect this term, however on April 24 the provincial government announced further fee bans on items such as student I.D. cards, library cards, and lab fees. The UW administration is concerned over the revenues that will be lost because of the ban. The school was budgeting for a total reduction in revenue of $1.8 million due to the loss of the controversial computer fee. With the new fee bans, however, the university expects to lose a further $2.7 million in revenue. Students registering this sprjng will not be charqed with the extra fees, but will be charged a new tuition surtax [five percent) which wasgranted by the Liberalgovernment to helpuniversities compensate for the fee bans. The Federation of Students announced it is pleased with t h government ban. The group is currently trying to obtain agovern-, meat decision on the lenalitv of CO-OP fees, which are expected to ‘ / more than double et uw in-the nexi few wears.

Soviet poll reveals studehts unhappy USSR (ISIS) - Four thousand people, mainly full-time university and college students, responded as Smena [a popular Soviet youth magazine with a circulation of 1,200,OOO) offered its readers a questionnaire. Sociologist Viktor Perevedentsev, Ph.D. (Economics) analyzed their answe’rs to draw a sociological portrait of the student of today. As of last year, the.day departments of Soviet universifies and colleges had a total enrollment of 2.8 miilion. The average student age is 18 to 24. People from every social stratum are among the full-time students (who constitute over a half of the USSR’s university and college students), with a - high percentage from professional family backgrounds. REAL ADVANTAGE AGAINST FORMAL OPPORTUNITIES

EQUAL

Most parents want their children to get an education at least as good as their own. To ensure this, many hire private tutors for their young ones. This is one of the main reasons why the professionals’ social stratum largely reproduces itself. Another important reason is that young people residing in the city where the university or college is situated have better enrollment opportunities than young people living in other cities, because of a shortage of dormitory facilities. Some measures have already been taken to bridge the opportunities gap. Industrial factories send some of their young workers to college on scholarships higher than the ordinary state ones. There are also full-

time preparatory courses at institutions of higher learning, with priority admissions going to young industrial workers and farmers. Good progress at the course means enrollment in the college of university in question without entrance exams. WHAT

The SMena poll showed that the three main requirements the students want their future jobs to meet are to be morally satisfying (77 per cent of the polled), highly useful socially (52 per cent) and well paid [also 52 per cent). Paradoxically, only two in 100 mentioned “the opportunity to become a leader, a manage?, even though many of the polled are school activists with leadership experience. Ariother alarming contradiction revealed by the poll is the gap between the above-mentioned three priority kequirements and the students’ ideas of their professional prospects. One can hardly expect people who are not< satisfied with ‘their job choice to find their future employment “morally satisfying”. But only 64 in 100 said they would choose the same profession if they were to choose again. The fact that so many were unhappy with their selection is attributable to the poor idea the young people had of their own abilities and of the profession they chose, and also to their parents’ erratic guidance. (The poll showed that family played a great roll in career choice). BETTER

The fact that professionals (especially engineers) are paid comparatively little has caused a fall in the prestige of higher education in this country in the past few years, revealing itself in the swift decrease in applications for admission, especially at technical colleges. The situation should change for the better because engineers’ salaries will see an average 30 to 35 per cent rise in 1987, depending on individual performance and qu’alification rating.

Students’ intense interest in their future salaries seems to be partly attributable to their inability to live on the 40 to 50 rouble monthly grant and to the resulting dependence on their parents. (Most students live with their parents and usually get more from the family budget than they contribute. Most of those living away from home receive material support from their families). A draft higher and secondary specialized education reform provides for a rise in scholarships. Material dependence on the family is not as harmless as it may seem. The young eventually develop the habit of dependency .

She, Dr. Desmond Fonn, and a number of. other researchers and clinicians from the School of Optometry, ’ are involved, They are seeking five groups of volunteer subjects, about 25 in each group, who will be fitted I with the ne.w lenses and who I will return regularly for a period of three months of aftercare. “We will look very carefully, for any changes in the eye; we want to confirm that these -new : lenses are in every way satisfactory,” says Sorbara. She notes the lenses have already been approved by the Health Governing Board, in Can-

ada, and by the Food and Drug Administration, in the United States. The UW studies are expected provide further evidence as to the safety and satisfaction of the new materials and designs. According to Fonn, one of the g&permeable hard lenses they will be using is noteworthy in that it permits a much greater amount ofoxygen to penetrate to eye tissue than is the case with present gas-permeable lenses. A concern of eye care specialists is that contact lenses reduce the supply of oxygen to the lens of the eye; this is one reason why contact lenses have traditionally had to be removed overnight+ and it is also a matter of concern in connection with extendedwear lenses. Sorbara in particular is going to look at a new soft contact lens that doesn’t pick up protein,. lipids, calcium deposits, etc., during wear, to the extent that previous soft lenses have done.

Reidel said given the MSA’s policy of not requiring a damage deposit or last month’s rent, the only alternative is to maintain reasonable standards of sanitation in t~he units. “If people complain, then their standards are too low,” he said. “More than $10,000 is spent annually on pest control, and increases in those costs will inevitably be

“There’s a general distrust out there we must heal. Idon’t ever remember

ridiculing all that is Christian.” - Jerry Falwell, chairman of the PTL Club, in response to the sex and money scandal currently rocketing the organization Now, I may not be an expert on matters religious, but it to me that groups like the PTLClub, the Moral Majority (which Falwe.ll also heads) and the 700 Club have very little to do with Christianity. In making such statements, Falwell is being very presumptuous. Television evangelistn is no more than a business - a very profitable business - and its ministers are no more than ’ actors. Despite the obvious incongruities of multi-million dollar conglomerates, headed by people who live in mansions and drive Rolls Royces, being labeled “caring,-loving Christian” organizations, many people are duped into supporting such ministries [thus the Rolls Royces). The recent revelations of wide-spread corruption within the PTL Club have opened many people’s eyes to these incongrui ties. And this is what has many TV evangelists worried. The cloud of suspiciori and doubt over the PTL Club has spread to cover the whole field of God&love-for-a-fee* religion. I, for one, think it’s been too long coming. Nothing is more preposterous than the concepts of religion espoused by the likes of Falwell, Jimmy Swaggart, the nowdownfallen Jim Bakker (and Tammy] and the now-legendary Oral “the Lord’s a-comin’to take me home” Roberts. The list of these “holy men” is, unfortunately, almost unending - a tribute to the success of this totally legal form of raking in the big bucks without having to do much work, * The legality of this business, however, is purely by-thebook. Judged by ethical and traditional Christian standards, TV evangelists fare only slightly better than Hitler, Stalin, Marcos . . These holy rollers make their fortunes by preying on the guilt and.superstitions of the weak, the lonely and the elderly. Older people, who often spend many hours watching TV at home alone, are especially prone to the slick sales pitch offered by such charlatans, Once hooked, the viewers, many of whom live on low or fixed incomes, are led to believe eternal salvation will be assured if only they would “give til it hurts”, The revelations of the goings-on within PTL (and probably every other such organization] have made people aware that TV evangelists are no less sinful (probably more sinful] than the average viewer who is sending in his or her money. Under these circumstances, it’s no wonder that the public is growing more skeptical - no one wants to go where these spiritual leaders will be spending their eternal life, itls much too hot. seems

DEBUNKING: by Robert Day Imprint staff Feelirig a bit itin down lately? A tad sluggish? Various aches and pains that the family doctor can’t seem to deal with? No problem, pilgrim, we got just the thing to figure out what’s wrong with you,. won’t hurt a bit, I mean this is the greatest invention since wooden wheels. What we’re talking about here is iridology, the so-called science of. medical diagnosis from cursory, painless examination of the iris. Don’t ask questions, just sit up here on the table, look at the pretty eye chart ,and be impressed. Cash or charge? Given the increasing obsession with this particuiar money pit of quackery, it’s a little surprising that the concept of iridology has been around for well over a hundred years, inflicted on an unsuspecting public by one Dr. Ignatz von Peczely of Hungary. Rumor has it that, as a lad of ten, von Peczely accidentally broke the leg of an owl he was playing with and noticed that a black stripe immediately appeared on the bird’s iris. Over the next many years, von Peczely developed comprehensive charts of the iris and its relationship with various organs of the’body. (The image of the good doctor. systematically remov.ing small parts of some unfortunate owl sticks in the imagination.. . but I am being ,unkind. Onward.) The idea here is that each of the genI iris is an indicator eral health of the organs on,its half of the body and a quali‘fied practitioner, with the proper charts, is capable of interpreting the appearance of the iris. The latest resurgence in iridology appears to be almost entirely due to Bernard Jensen, whose 1952 potboller The Science and Practice of Iridology is recognized as the authoritative work even

\

Theeyes

today. Another major proponent is Harri Wolf, who is the founder of the (American) National Iridology Research Foundation and the author of Applied Iridoiogy. Toget her, these two individuals can generate ’ enough technical pseudo-scientific verbiage to choke a (fjll in your choice of large mammal here]. So where does the science of iridology start to fall apart? Not being content to just attempt a medical rationale for iridology, Wolf demonstrates his abysmal lack of logic by trying to justify his pet science from, of all things, an evolutionary point of -hew. According to Wolf, is it not reasonable. that ‘f. . . through some.. . evolutionary process . . . the human body would be equipped with EI metering device functioning as a gauge in regard to the health of the individual?” What Wolf fails to appreciate is the utter uselessness of a “metering device” that is not accessible to the individual’and must be inspected by someone else, a metering device that is only comprehensible when accompanied by one ,of at least nineteen distinct iridology charts now in existen& and, most of all, a meterthat is almost ing device certainly of no use to an owl that wouldn’t know an iridology chart from the sports page* Both Jensen and Wolf are fond of bombarding their readers with medical jargon *‘cervical ganglion”, like “sympathetic nervous system” and “neuro-optic reflex’*, this last term referring to the hypothetical connection linking areas of the iris with the appropriate organs. Jensen’s tome contains several diagrams of the optic nerve, the / optic chiasm and other relevant areas of the brain and nervous system, while completely glossing over the . rather significant fact that there is no evidence that any fibers from the optic nerve even make a connection’with

Bditorial

Board

have it

the iris and that, according to the Nobel Prize-winning work of Hubel and Weisel, the optic nerve (at least in mammals) is essentially an afferent pathway, meaning that sigpals travel from the eye to the brain, not in the reverse direction. Another ipidologist, in a misguided effort to outdo Jensen for the “most-boneheaded-hypothesis-of-thedecade” award, even suggested an extra level of communication in which damage to the iris would be reflected in a “removal of function” for the corresponding organ, which makes me wonder why the unfortunate souls who accidentally lose an eye don’t fall over dead from total, catastrophic collapse of one half of their body. In a desperate attempt to salvage some respectability, Jensen mentions a wellknown clinical technique called fundus examination which isan accepted test used by opthalmologists as an indicator of arterial circulation. ,Jensen fo,lIows this up without explaining the legitimate research lends any support whatsoever to his rhalf-baked theories, a ntechnique popularized by Bernard Gittelson in his ’ hyping of biorhythms (as some readers may recall from a previous column - see what happens when you don’t pay attention?] I When all else fails, of course, there is always the standard last line of defence that the proponents of iridology share with their pseudoscientific bedfellows, the astrologers - ‘it works. And even when tests at the‘Univecsity of Melbourne and UCSD show this claim to be a total fabrication, Jensen pulls out ‘his ace in the hole by stating, “Many times the conditions revealed in the iris today will not be apparent in the body for years to come, but time will inevitably show the analysis to be correcf .*’ How can you lose?

How many have to die? by Chris Gerrard Imprint staff

(a pseudonym)

“What do you want to do something like that for?!” That was the response of the mother of a friend of mine when my friend, Barb, said that she wanted to do s’ome volunlteer work for the AIDS Committee of iToronto. As Barb related to me oyer lunch, her mother “freaked out” over the though of gay people, and could not understand why anyone would want to volunteer for “that sort of t hi&‘. . I guess that is an opinion shared by many people. Certainly not too many of our governments are taking this too seriously. After all, it’s just a few “gays” that are dying, so who cares, right? The whole attitude of the Canadian government to the AIDS issue seems rather bland and uncaring. Canada spent far less than the $7 million there are about 15 to 20 independent research studies underway, all taking a different approach ,to the problem, and none of them talking to each other very much. Certainly there is no coordinated effort. Canadian health officials are “pidling around”, according to Phil Shaw of the AIDS Committee of Toronto, in the typically Canadian way - advancements are not expected to come from Canada, but rather the States or France, so why really try? It is as if the Canadian government is denying the existence of AIDS as a problem, Health researchers do not have the funding available to them to do as much as they must. Yet just this past week, the government announced that there has been 1,000 cases of *AIDS in Canada, 498 of which are still alive. In the U.S., the numbers are approximately 40 times Canadian statistics. AIDS is not just a “gay disease” anymore [not that it ever really was - it started in heterosexual Africa), and everyone is at risk. One very major problem is that this health issue is at odds with the conservative tenet. It involves spending a lot of money, and it involves gay people. Jake Epp, federal health minister, the man who should be leading a fight agains AIDS into the battle field of research, is a Manitoba Mennonite, and not at all comfopitable with having to deal with this whole issue. This is reflected in the federal goverriments flustered dealings with AIDS. As well, AZT, a drug that has been allowed administration to AIDS patients in the United States, improving their quality of life and prolonging their lives, is still not approved by Canada’s ministry of health. And, the pharmisutical company that produces AZT is threatening to stop supplying it to Canadian research studies unless it is, approved as a prescription drug. So here we are with health officials that are dragging their’ feet,: and turning a blind eye to the needs of all of us. We have got to let the government know that we are worried about AIDS, and it i-s time to put more money and effort into finding a cure. If you think that this is just a gay issue, or that it is not going to affect you, you are wrong. AIDS is not just something happening on the Castro in San Francisco - it is here, and it is killing people. It’s time all of us took my friend’s example, if not just to stand up and be counted and say, “I want to do something about this.” Talk to your MP, MPP, and the federal and provincial health ministers. Let them know they are not doing enough.

They have injustice in commoti If you’re not too busy, then take some time today to find out about how petiple in other parts of the world are doing. The following accounts are not in any way special or unusual. Please read the accounts carefully and try to deFermine what these people have in common. IRINA RATUSHINSKAYA is a young Soviet physicist and poet. She w,as arrested in Kiev in 1982, and convicted of contributing articles to an unofficial workers’ bulletin and of writing poetry critical of the USSR. She was sentenced to 12 years imprisonment and internal exile for “anti-soviet agitation and propaganda”. PANAYIOTIS SPETSIOTIS is a young man living in Cyprus. he was sentenced in May, 1985 to 16 months imprisonment, after refusing otieligious groun’ds to perform military service. There ‘is no provision for conscientiousobjection to military service under the’ law in Cyprus. DEAN SIMON FARISANJ is a reverend in the Lutheran Church in South Africa. He has been arrested and tortured several times over the last few years, simply because-he has called for the abolition of apartheid. he was most recently arrested on November ~2, 1986 and put into solitary confinement, by the same thugs who had previously tortured him. What these people have in common is that they haven’t committed anything we���d consider crimes, and that they have never used or advocated violence. Instead they have all been punished for exercising rights that we take for granted in Canada. They are being mistreated by the very governments whose job it is to protect them. They are ‘Prisoners of Conscience’.

What these people also have in common is that they were ‘adopted’ by the human rights organization Amnesty International, that members of Amnesty International from around the world wrote letters of protest on their behalf to their governments, and that they are now free. Other Prisoners of Conscience aren’t as lucky. MOHAMED BACHIR ZNAGUI is a Morroccan. He was arrested in August 1974, brought to trial in 1977, and is now serving a 22 year prigon term. He has never used or advocated violence. His only ‘crime’ appears to have been that he was a member of a political group not approved of by the government. He has been tortured while in detention. KOSTADIN KALMAKOV is a 56 year-old electro-technician from Bulgaria. He was arrested in March, 1982 for protesting the imprisonment of Bulgarian conscientious objectors. He was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for “anti-state propaganda”. He has apparently been ill-treated in prison. PARK CHONC-CHOL was a student activist in South Korea. He had taken part in anti-government demonstrations, had been arrested before in 1985 and 1986. This year he was again picked up for questioning, was tortured during his interrogation, and died in police custody on January 14, 1987. He was 21, Events like these are barbaric and deplorable, but seem far away and out of our control. They aren’t! You can make a big difference in pressuring governments around the world to stop mistreatng their citizens, and in helping those ‘people) who are being mistreated. If you want to “do something about it” then contact Amnesty

International. This organization works on behalf of prisoners like the ones mentioned earlier. It is making q difference - for example, in January 1987 Amnesty International learned of the release of 179 of the prisoners it had adopted or whose cases it was investigating. There are however many thousands of other Prisoners of ‘Conscience who couldn’t be helped because Amnesty International is as yet lacking the resources to investi-’ gate all the known cases. Research ii carried out at the organization’s international bureau in London, England where a staff of 150 people work on sifting through vast amounts of information to confirm reports of human rights abuses. s Amnesty International members get Prisoner of Conscience released by publicising their cases in the news media of the world, and by writing letters [often many thousands of them for one case) to- the people in government responsible for the prisoners’ punishment. Amnesty Internationalis also an outspoken opponent of the use of torture and the death-penalty upon any prisoners, whatever their crime. There is a very active campus group which was formed one and a half years ago and which could use your help. It won’t take much w maybe an hour of your time or a few dollars per week are enough The campus group meets weekly in the Campus Centre. Meeting times are posted in the WPIRG Community Calendar. The first meeting of the summer term will be on May 6th+ 1987 in the Campus Centre. For more information call Angie (743-9667) or Wilf (746-0364).

Soviet student looking to establish ‘Peace Belt DUSHANBE, USSR [ISIS] - In late’ 1986, Munira Nabiyeva, a college student from Dushanbe [the capital of Tajikistan, one of the ‘15 republics of the USSR) proposed proclaiming the 39th parallel a “Peace Belt”. Her message was published in iocal youth papers, the Tajik-language Komsomoli Tojikiston and the Russian-language Komsomolets Tajikstana. Murina, who studies at the Tajik Institute of Russian language and Literature, is keen on ‘geography. The fact that Dushanbe and Washington are practically on the same latitude gave her the idea of connecting them and all cities, towns and villages situated along the 39th parallel [which, apart from the USSR and the US, runs through Iran, Turkey, Gree‘ce, Italy,

Spain, Portugal,

Japan, Korea and China], with an imaginary line - the Peace Belt. “I address you, the young, why not run a Peace Belt around this planet? Why not have it on the maps, just as we have the Greenwich meridian or the equator now?” Munira writes. In her plan the young in the countries, cities, and villages along the Peace Belt would make a dedicated effort to work forpeace, demonstrating that the arms race and the looming threat of global nuclear war is incompatible with everyone’s aspirat ions, “The young are this planet’s’ future, and they are entitled to being confident in the future,” she notes. Munira believes the first Peace Belt will be joined by more and more similar belts. “Wi must

do it right away, we have no time to spare,” she, writes addressing the young. The two newspapers’ editorial offices invited Tajikistan’s

young people to voice their o\pin- Komsomdi Tojikieton and Kom-

op fee forum to investigate the increasing co-up fees. Imprint investigative reporter Cindy Long discovered a scandal on campus in the custodial union, uncovering allegations of sexual discrimination, harassment and election rigging. A new fraternity, Phi Delta Theta, popped up on campus amidst controversy over Federation recognition of fraternities and sororities. The Feds, who are concekned about recognizing a group which apparently discriminates on the basis of sex, have decided to hold a referendum on the issue sometime next term.

The Federation of Student, election, held last February, proved to be a competitive event with more than a dozen candidates running for the three top executive positions. Voter turnout was apathetic as usual in the election which saw Ted Carelton elected president, Andrew Abouchar elected vice-presidint (operations and finance) and Lisa Skinner elected vice-president (university affairs). Also approved in the election was a Fed fee referendum+ increasing fees paid to the Federatien’of Students by $3.50 per person per term to allow for reduced Federation debt and increased services.

“There’s far more eqe@y put into it than the.oM hmcl”

Fuzztones talk at (great) length by Tim Perlich Imprint staff This is very likely the first time the mail service could be found guilty of being too efficient. Consequently, my error-riddled prkview of The Fuzztones’ April Fools show at Waterloo’s City Hotel found its way into the hands of the band well before they arrived in town. Time enough, on the lonesome highway, for an intense h~ate to geetate, and still hours left over to plot a horrible death. Bad news really does travel fast. “Hey dude,” shouted a near jovial Elliott Lefko sporting his new Fuzztones spring line, “good to see ya on your home turf.” “Yeah, grtreat to see ya,” I replied. in a mock show-biz styler befitting his position as almost-king of Toronto “Was it you who wrote promoters. the Fuzztones preview in the Imprint?” “Uh huh,” I nodded hesitantly, knowing full well it contained some erroneous pronouncements about Deb O’Nair still being with the band and saying it was “anyone’s guess whom the drummer might be” when, as I would soon discover, Mike Czekaj had been in the band with Rudi for more than a year. “The urn . . . band wants to talk’to you,” replied Elliott in his ‘solemn’ voice which he hadn’t had cause to invoke since 11~1 on the night of the previous Lyres gig at the Bamboo with vocalist Jeff Conolly still nowhere in sight. As we walked through the labyrinth of doors and stairs to the hive of buzzing Fuzztones, I used every passing second to develop and think through alternate ,ploys and excuses should the truth fail. “This is Tim, the guy that did the write-up,” Elliott tossed in, half expecting an erruption at any moment. There was no reaction. With back to the wall I stepped forward surveying the room. Everyone continued with what they were doing except drummer Mike Czekaj whose death stalk gaze fixed on me from under his sweaty clump of hair and never left during my entire presence. “Your write-up was full of lies,” scowled Rudi Protrudi facing away, fumbling with one of his harmonicas. “I know+ I’m sorry about that,” I admitted, preparing for the worst. “You mean you did it on purpose?” Screamed Protrudi from across the room. “No, I just wrote what I knew to be true about the group. I wasn’t aware of the line-up changes until Thursday while talking to Elliott - by then the paper had already been sent out to be printed.*’ “O.K., what about this Lonely Sort Of Death shit and the different tracks? That was a boot-leg y’know. Live In Europe is a lot better - it wasn’t recorded with a fucking handheld mikel “Yes, I realize that but I thought that the beal Fuzztones fans, the Cult of Fuzz types, who might already own1 Lonely Sort Of Death should be made aware

of any

different

tracks.”

“But does anybody own it?” “I do . . . and I’m from Waterloo.” (at this point I realized that it was probably a good idea not to bring the Lonely Sort Of Death record jacket along with me to be signed.) ’ “Well, if you’re a member of the Cult of Fuzz, then you should’ve known about the line-up changes from the Fuzz Buzz ?newsletter!” 1. ’ r._ -*

“I dent eyes The ’ was

am a member but I’ve never been any newsletters. (Rudi rolls his in disbelief) Really, I haven’t! only thing I’ve ever been sent a letter containing two tour . posters, no return address, post-

marked “San

that?!!

‘San Bernadind’.

Bernadino? What the fuck is We’re based in L.A.!” Interjects from a distanf

Jordan (guitarist] corner. “Your fucking

lost man,” offers ’ Mike (drummer] in his own charmingly maniacal way, stare still unshaken. “I guess we’ll let you live”, considered Rudi with a noticeably forced grin, “it seems like your intentions were good.”

Tim: Should we start break-up of the original Rudi:

with the Fuzztones?

Rudi: That’s a part of it I guess, she’s settled now. She has a boyfriend and I think they’re going to have a baby. Michael h?s a girlfriend and they’re gonna get married and pretty much give up rock ‘n’ roll and live out the American Dream; So we went out .there andit took two and a half weeks to get this whole band together. I had just gotten a deal to put out Live In Europe in German and the guy asked us if we could B o a tour - it was right after our first rehearsal. I said “O.K.” and just a chance that we could get it together in two months, So the band’s only been together now for thr.ee months. We were together for; two months, went to Europe, did the tour: 28 shows in 30 days. I believe it was nine countries. We haven’t even played in America yet. We’re gonna do 11 shows in Canada and then come back and make our debut in L.A.

O.K.

Jordan:

No!

‘Tim: Well, how about the begining of The Fuzztones? When did you first, meet up with Deb O’Nair? Jordan: When heh, heh

we first

moved

to L.A.

Rudi: Why don’t you just do the int.erview with Jordan. (silence . . . Rudi begins playing harmonica) Tim:

Did you meet Deb in New

York?

Tim: Have you been concentrating on your own material in the shows or is it the Link Wray and the other stuff you usually like to cover?

photo by Tiin Perlich

Rlidi Protrudi “If you’re interested in doing an interview, I’d like to get all of the facts straight. Is there going to be time between sets?” Rudi’s &yes narrow once again. “Between sets? Who told you we were doing two? This band has only been together for a couple of months! We’re doing one and that’s it!” “We could do it right now, that is, if there’s still time left before you go on.” “Yeah, we co.uld do it now,” decided Rudi, I haven’t had my whiskey yet and for what they’re paying us, we’ll go on when we want to go on.”

.

Back upstairs to pick up my recorder, I took a wrong turn and got lost in the kitchen. Fortunately a passing staffer sketched out a map and I descended into the den once more. Elliott was seated at the table while Rudi had returned to his tour bag. As I took a seat he whispered “y’know how it is with-‘Monoman’ and his shades, well with The Fuzztones it% hair.” The spent cans of hair-spray confirmed his observation. “I heard that,” Protrudi shouted as “don’t believe anyhe swung ‘round, thing Elliott tells you!” “Are you ready to do the interview?” “Sure, go ahead.” ,,.-.n,*I”r.I”n..L...~“I.~‘“-‘“*

Rudi: No, the Link thing was a side project that me and Mike put together ‘cause we were really bored with the ‘no win’ situation of trying to get The Fuzztones back together in New York City. We did that merely to amuse ourselves but we played a couple of shows and people really liked it. So we came here (Canada] and did that little tour and went down to Boston and surrounding areas. Just before we moved to L.A. we recorded two albums worth.of material as Link Protrudi and the J-Men which is going to come out on the same German label as Live In Europe (Music Maniac Records, Marktgasse 17, 7400 Tubingen, West Germany). We have.a couple of new originals that we’ll be playing tonight [One called Heathen Set and a killer with a Farmer John&h chorus called Nine Months Later. . . dedicated, this evening to Deb O’Nair), but we tried to put together a set that was more or less a compilation that we think people would like to hear from us . . . since The Fuzztones haven’t played together in a year and a half.

Rudi: No, I took her from Harrisburg to New York with me. We formed our first band Tina Peel, together, Deb and I. When Tina Peel broke up we started The Fuzztones. We played as The Fuzztones for about five years. \After the European tour (1985) the band broke up. We went for a year and a hatf doing nothing, trying real hard to get the band together, Deb, Michael (Jay) and myself. We spent a couple of months auditioning drummers, including famous drummers, from really b.ig bands until we hit on Mike (Czekaj). The four of us tried to get The Fuzztones back together’for about a year without any luck. Finally we just gave up and Mike and I went to Los Angeles to try and reform the band. The other two -weren’t interested in reforming. Deb had Das Furlines by that time and that’s all she wants to do now. Tim;

Martignon? He’s going to put out the American version of l&e In Elirope which is actually going to be this band. It’s gonna be Live In Europe ‘87 with stuff from the recent tour. After that I doubt that we’ll be doing anything ,more with him because, really, his budget is just too low to handle what we’re doing now. I mean’ we did so much better in Europe. There’s really no reason to deal with small indies anymore. Audi:

Rudi: You have to go to him and ’ ’ ’ discuss it with him. Either that or you have to get Michael, over there, really drunk and then sick him on J.D., then it’s very easy to get your money, In fact, that’s what we’re going to do to Elliott at the end of this tour.

Rudi: (laughs) Yeah, I played her all that Monks stuff. . . they were the greatest. I just got a video of three of their songs, it’s wild!* Tim: Do you think that moving to L.A. had anything to do with Deb and I I ~-Michael leaving , the I : . band? . I

Rudi: We all have different tastes in this band. Sure, I listen to some obscure sixties stuff but I like blues and old fifties things even more, especially jerry Lee, Bo Diddley, and Esquerita.

How many people wear their hair like us? If you compare the garage movement to what’s out there now, it’s like a pinpoint on the ass of an elephant - it’s really an absurd comparison. I think people are threatened by it. Maybe they think long hair will come back or maybe people will start gettin’ wild again, maybe Oh they’ll be ’ . .

Tim: About VOX equipment, there are some bands who use VOX amps because they are ‘VOX’ for authenticity sake even though certain models are notorious for shitty sound, flimsy cabinets and constant breakdowns. Rudi: Admittedly, we used VOX amps for a long time and we did have a lot of problems with them so we don’t use them anymore. We use VOX guitars occasionally. I use a Vox guitar.

Rudi: The& this bar that’s about two blocks from CBGB’s and it’s a hang-out for derelicts and stuff. I used to go there and get drunk before C.B. sh&vs because no one could afford-the beer at C.B.‘s. One night I was there gettin’ drunk and there was this old black guy in the corner, drunk out of his mind singing all this wild shit about eating people, y’know. I kinda recognized his voice, that deep, booming voice, so I looked over at him and thought to myself, “man, that looks like Screamin’ Jay Hawkins!” I went over to him and asked him and he said he was. .He stood u and started into I Put A Spell On ? ou and everybodyfin the bar went nuts. I asked him if he-wanted to do a record because, y’know, he wasn’t doin’ anything and he said ‘sure’. So we arranged for a live show with The Fuzztones where he would make a guest appearance. We learned two songs in advance but he didn’t rehearse with us - he just showed up at the show and did the two songs. They went over really well so he just kept on going. On that record (Screamid Jay Hewkins with The Fulrztones [Midnight)), the other two songs were made up on the spot, we had no idea he was going to do them. I recorded it, luckily, gave it to J’D, and he put it out. I’m still in contact with Jay; He lives in L.A. now. Jordan: He’s got himself grey Cadillac , . ,

Jordan:

Really?

Rudi: Yep, they’re all over the floor. Tim:

Rudi: Yeah (laughing), and he goes out with, like, %-year-old white girls! He’s doin’ really well now, at least he appears to be. Tim: It seems like everyone’s moving out of New York to L.A. now. Apparently one of the reasons Lux and Ivy of The Cramps moved was because they didn’t want to deal with the street scum anymore. Rudi: New York is really dangerous. It’s also a pain in the ass to live there ‘cause for one thing it’s too expensive. The weather is either freezing cold or unbelievably hot. The yuppies are all movin”in so you can’t possibly afford to live there, the prices have all been jacked up. There’s so many junkies and criminals allowed to roam the streets and harass the hell out of you ..l..-.--*rrr-.cl-.‘-~---~~--.---

Rudi: Believe it or not, they were the guys who delivered the pizza! (uproarious laughter from al1 except Mike Czekaj whose evil gaze remains unmoved) Seriously! We were playin this thing’ shooting the video and they go, “shoooot, we got a band,” So I asked what their name was and they said “Run-DMC” and I thought that was about the dumbest name that I had ever heard. We asked them if they wanted to be in the video and they said “yes”, so we put ‘em in. There’s lots of people from the garage scene in the video too: a guy from The Blacklight Chameleons, a guy from The Tryfles, and one from The Outta Place. Place

Tim: What was the reason behind The Morlocks break up? Jordan: We were all great friends but everyone got real lazy and refused to get jobs. There was no money. We were borrowing cash to get the bus to rehearsal. It was just getting impossible,

Jordan: No, nothing heavy - just pot, but a few of the guys had gotten to the point where if they didn’t-have pot, all they would do in rehearsals was call around on the phone until they could find some. Another problem was that the singer had a really big ego. He thought he should be attended to. He also thought Atlantic was going to be giving him a contract any day so he didn’t have to get a job or do anything (chuckles).

hear a lot of that influence now. The sound has changed from before, it’s harder than it was before. It’s still very ’60s oriented but there’s a sharper edge and far more energy put in to it than the. old band. Tim: It was in an interview in Lost Myunde I think, that Rich Coffee said that one of the reasons The Unclaimed broke up was because he wanted to cover some MC5 material. Rudi: (laughs) I 6eard that too! That’s right and Shelley (Ganz) was only into beihg exactly like a sixties band. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just not what we do. I used to really like going to see The Chesterfield Kings when they were an exact copy of The Chocolate Watchband. They were great then but I don’t like them very much anymore ‘cause now they don’t know who they are. Then, at least you knew .tihat they were, there was no other band like them. They were exactly like seeing The Watchband. Unfortunately they began listening to the press and the press kept saying “Oh, well, this is nothing but a cover band . . . retro . . . blah’ blah, blah . . .” The thing is, it was very new to everyone who.watched them play because I really doubt if anyone in their audience ever saw The Choco-

Tim: The video for Ward 81 has a strangely dark quality to it, did you have a hand in it’s production? Rudi: Yes. It was shot in a mental institution which was closed . . . without them knowing about. it. (smiles deviously) Tim: You’re kidding, sneak in at night?

Rudi: (nods) We just broke went in, and shot it.

Tim: What about the other members of the band, which groups did they Rudi: You already know that our lead guitarist Jordan Tarlow played with The Outta Place and The Morlocks, Mike Czekaj he’s from . . . uh . . . where are you from? Mike:

It’s anybody’s

guess!

Rudi: He showed up on my doorstep and he said, “Stop the search! I am the new Fuzztones drummer!” And y’know, I c*ould tell he was because his attitude was right. We never even listened to him. There’s this guy over here, John Car!, he’s the bass player from a big, famous New York City band called The Speedies and Jason Savall plays organ and he used to be Sparks’ roadie. That’s it, time to empty the main vein.

Our minds will cure,, our bodies . . . , were the words of’ the sultry intro to the Parts Found In Sea,show at Kitchener’s Level 21 last Friday (April 24).

Though a hundred bodies checked through the turnstile Sunday night (April 261, the Princess Theatre never felt full. But the lacking physical presence was overshadowed by the enthusiasm of the partisan crowd who came to see Big Monkey Du and Line One. The opening act, Big Monkey Du, was a one-night fling for some old friends to play music which reflected their past days of jumping about dark, dank bars in the early ’80s and their present interest to .explore youthful jazz idioms. The tineup of Wally Jericho (Paul Wicks - trumpet, cornet, and an array of electronic gadgets), Harvey Dangerous (Geoffrey Bennett drums), Ted Scarf (Kip - guitar and throat), Ward Darlington (Mark Willms - keyboards), Biff Todd (David Willms - guitar), and Doctor Kleine (Andy Kleine - saxes) presented a diPm-

Line One says cheese by Peter Lawson Imprint staff

Larry,

by joha Zachariah Imprint staff Thee popular music gods have not been smiling on progressive rock (or its fans) in the eighties. Drowned in a tidal wave of dance-oriented crystalline synth-pop, bands like Yes, ELP, and Marillion have attracted only the old faithful or the morbidly curious, but no large or significant new folldwing. Others have survived through adaptation; Genesis, who were Collinized at the beginning of the decade, now rule the Top 40, while their former headman Peter Gabriel foists his bland brand of yuppie funk on a receptive public. However, progressive rock, pure, unadulterated, pompo’us art rock seems to have been squelched in today’s pop Music milieu. SO why is Larry Gowan, who appeared at the Centre in the Square last Sunday [April 26) and who has art-rock sensibility to burn, such a (relative) SUCcess? Both his last recordand his current one are doing wonder.fully well on the charts, being gobbled up by Canadian music fans everywhere. The answer

lies in the difference between what those fans hear on disc and what they hear on stage. Recorded, Gowan’s nifty amalgam of pop and progressive comes on like pleasant, harmless synthrock. On stage, though, Gowan prances, preens and poses to the delight of screaming teenage girls as his bands rips through about an hour’s blizzard of the most stagey, pompous, prog!essive rock noise imaginable. To be fair, Cosmetics (definitely his ‘best song) was handled well. And, to his credit, Gowan does work hard, jumping around as he does; the man seems to have boundless energy, which paid off during an intense rendering of Strange Animal. Other than these two high points ,though, the shoti was a loud, indistinguishable roar. As for the Spoons, their destiny in the music business seems to be as an opening act, Aside from

Some of the evening highlights were the a cappeIla singing of Fisherman’s Prayer and Vacation which showed good voices, and the rockin’ numbers Drinkin’ Shoes and Mona. A real pleaser, Farmer Tan, was a parddy qf shoo-bop vocals which hailed the virtues of “tanned brown arms, white chest, and redneck”, a real winner at the beach. -- OccasianalIy a number like Mamow was a sappy yawn, .trying to be semi-serious in a light mannered production. After the intermission the cast conducted a raffle for an air

. Boppy tunes and standard show gags originated from ‘the Chartottetown Festival with elements, such as lighting and set design, from the Variety Theatre production. The cast consisted of Jamie Alcorn, Doug Balfour, Jodie Friesen, Randy Kempf, Robert Maciag, and Janet MacEwan. The show is akin to Broadway, . consisting mqstly of songs loosely strung together with whimsical banter. Jokes about the gas station - diner like “stop over, eat ‘n’ get gas” helped (somewhat) to brid e the songs which>.wre a bleti t of country’ rock, gosp.el, and* ‘blues.

freshner, and that is the moment when “I” infiltrated the show. (See accompanying evidence.) With ticket F-14 I went to stage to investigate the full impact of this production. Another example that Imprint goes to the extreme to drag out the story. Just call me Scoops.

cern of eyery teen band which iprotited (like so many weeds between cracks in the pavement from Maine to New Mexico) in those halcyon days of the vinyl mini. A select few,who‘managed to outlast obscurity and survive instant fame were granted the opportunity to cut an entire album. Of those, still fewer had the desire or the creative capacity required to come up with the IQ (or so) songs it took . . . you must remember that these groups generally consisted of 15 aad 16-year-olds and as nasty and colourful as their middleclass lives must have been there simply. wasn’t enough real life experience for them to draw on in writing meaningful, original songs. Thus, an album would usualiy contain the hit single as a selling point (any other singles

could be saved to sell future album’s) with the rest being filler in the form of group studio jams, written by producerssongs /manager and of course, covers. The Creeps, on the other hand, have put together an album of consistently brilliant and original (if anything can be termed ‘original’) examples of what has become known as “garage punk” - a genre defined by obvious rhyme schemes, overt paranoia, and three chord (not excluding one and two chord) structures played with a brutal primitivism that harks back to a time when fire was still thought to exist only as a natural phenoinenon. Here, enormqus Farfisa-fuelled hooks stand solidly beside a thickly fuzzed [and Gibratoed on ballads) guitar sound, coolly underplayed. Hey, where did that

about and gives the album that “down home” feeling. The songs on Less Art, More Pop! become so immediately familiar and friendly that you’ll certainly feel snug and cozy whenever Junior’s around. Day Of The First Snow is a song that basically states the song-writirig point of view of the band; with the lines, Sometimes it’s pretentious, when I use analogiesl’ve got something, an idea, something for you and meBut it’s simple, no lying, ond no analogies. The clever lyrics of the band separates their songs from being regarded as frivolous pop croonings as evidenced by Cosmos. This song is simply brillant. Poking fun at the intellectual, argumentative, know-it-all type of person, Junior sings, I don’t wannu go fishing, but $1like Carl Sagan, and even uses the word erudite! Everyone should know someone like Junior, Buy and listen to Less Art, More Pop!, and make Junior your friend. -

The production was lightly entertaining with its boppy tunes and standard show gags. The set harked’back to the late ‘SOS, early ’60s with large bright yellow wall-tiles and swivel bar stools. This set design won designer Judith Lee a Dora ward.

Not so for The Creeps. Robert Jelinek’s almost Texan wail, lying halfway between the fullness of Eric Burden and the grittiness of John Fogerty, is clearly the group’s forte. Check the harmonies on The Sonics’ Maintaining My Cool and the agonized screamthrough of My Baby She’s Gone. Jelinek’ devours each song he sings like a man going to the chair.

by Peter Lawson Imprint staff Originally written and performed to honour the first anniversary of the death of Italian novelist Alessandro Manzoni (1785-1873), Verdi’s Requiem Mass has a history equally theatric to the music of this great mass. The final section of Giuseppe Verdi’s (1813-1901) Requiem, Libera me, had been composed almost five years earlier to honour the renowned Italian Opera composer Gioacchino Rossini (17924868). In its original form the Libera me was to be included in a mass composed by 12 different composers and performed once to honour Rossini. The finagling of an impresario, who controlled all of the musicians required for the performance, toppled the attempt at this grand performance. Setting aside the Li bera me until the passing of Manzoni, Verdi completed his own complete mass and conducted the first performance in 1874. The work soon leaped to legendary status. Though the Kitchener-waterloo Philharmonic Choir production of this venerable music with the London Pro Musica on Good Friday [April 17) did not rocket to the heavens as a legendary it highlighted performance, some fine choral and solo singing and firm guidance under the direction of Howard Dyck.

REVIEW

Stalin: Man of Contradiction by Kenneth NeilI Cameron NC Press Ltd., Toronto

I

bility of wielding a sizable orchestra and several hundred voices, maestro Dy’ck moved the orchestra through fine entries and the choir through cohesive section entries and precise diction. Beginning in the Requiem section+ the orchestra demonstrated restraint in a quiet and very together passage, and the full hushed choir pressed out each word crisply in the Sanctus section. Beyond the tiork of conductor, choir, and orchestra, much of the life blo-od of this theatrical music must be supplied by the soloists. For this p&forma&e renowned Canadian soloist Maureen Forrester sang the mezzo-soprano role, Katherine Johnson sang the soprano solos, Vincent Arnofie sang the tenor requirements, and Joachim Umaran-Davila sang the bass solos. The joy of hearing Ms. Forrester would always be welcome. Thougli singing the mezzo-soprano high notes pressed her own range, her veteran stage presence, which translated into unbridled passion, and her vocal colour moved the audience. Criticized for lacking vocal passion, soprano Katherine Johnson possesses a young tone which floats lightly, especially in her upper-range. Her duets with the contrasting voice of Ms. Forrester were splendid, and in the Libera me she manoeuvered the near impossible by slaying a soft high note - a gloriously eerie touch. The male soloist did not fare is well. Tenor Vincent Arnone’s

by Tom York This revisionist biography, written entirely from English sources and for the general reader is not as pro-Stalin as Henri Barbusse’s official biography Stalin or ‘Budu Svanidze’s My Uncle joseph Stalin, but it leans in that direction. Of Stalin’s treachery and paranoia, his extermination of the kulaks and purge of the Red Army, it says not a word. - “In making an evaluation of Stalin, we must first and foremost keep in mind that he was a Marxist’ and a proletarian le.ader; ’ and for Marxists and proletarian leaders, special standards of evaluation are needed.” These’ “special st andaids” have to do with Cameron’s conviction that “Stalin advanced the position of the world proletariat further than any person in history with the exception of Lenin,” that “in advancing the position of the world working class Stalin also advanced the position of humanity,” and that, therefore, “a new class of world leader has emerged, and Stalin is in its highest rank.” Cameron revises the standard picture of Stalin and Lenin as self-serving conspirators mad for power and driven by personal ambition. “The spirit in which these men met as essentially one of good comradeship, in spite of some differences between them.” Stalin favored a two-stage, Lenin a single-stage revolution. Stalin submitted to Lenin in 3917, but Lenin in 1921 [with the backward step of the New Economic Policy) was forced to

admit his error. Lenin’s views, and his self-criticism, remain orthodox, doctrine, but Stalin is given higher marks for having been right in the first place. Cameron distinguishes between Trotsky’s and Lenin’s versions fo Marxism - the permanen’t revolution (Trotsky) versus the dictatorship of the proletariat (Lenin). Stalin embraced Lenin’s ‘strategy, which involved a temporary alliance between the proletariat and the peasantry. Of Stalin’s punitive m/easures against the peasants, Cameron says next to nothing. His depiction of Stalin is entirely
