SAC’s decision. “Almost every college council and professional faculty council has called for SAC to hold a referendum [on OUSA] ,” said executive assistant to the Arts and Sciences Student Union Terry Buckland. Buckland also said that an antiOUSA group was started last spring and discontent over OUSA has been growing ever since, especially since the recent Council of Ontario Universities (COU) fifty percent tuition increase proposal. Although SAC President Ed deGale was unavailable for comment, UW Federation of Students President Catherine Coleman is confident OUSA will be affirmed at the

October 6 and 7 referendum. “It will be a huge test [for OUSAJ,” she said, adding that there is a “good chance” OUSA will win. Coleman also said that U of T is unlike UW in that there are both pro and anti-OUSA factions, as well as a large group who feel U of T can stand alone without any outside support. “If they can pass [OUSA] at U of T, they can pass it anywhere,” she added. Buckland, however, is more emphatic in his opinions, stating “OUSA will not survive at the University of Toronto.” According to Coleman, if U of T opts out of OUSA, each of the other membership schools will have to

decide for themselves on a course ofaction, adding that the Feds would only go to referendum “when [they] think it is appropriate.‘* “The next year will prove to be a critical test,” she said. “We should wait that out before we decide whether or not we want to continue [in OUSA].” OUSA is currently working on a proposal for the ministry of education to outline their position on tuition, differential fees, and other issues including tenure. The official wording for the U of T referendum was not available at press time.

Frosh Week’s not just about free booze parties and making out in the bushes. Approximately $8000 was raised by UW students in this ye&s September I t , Shinerama Campaign, compared to last year’s $22,000* The decrease is due to nearly half of the frosh groups participating in Green Spirit Day, which was set up two years ago.

Fr0s.h are green by Cheryl Costello Imprint Staff In past years during Orientation week, UW Fresh and their Frosh leaders have generously donated their first Saturday morning on campus to assist with various community services and charities. This year was no exception. Due

to

about the environment and its conservation Green Spirit Day was conceived. Co-chair of Green Spirit Day Cheryl Evans tdld the Guzette earlier this month that the purpose was to introduce students to some environmental challenges that face

the Kitchener-Waterloo area. When asked ifthe campaign was successful, she responded positively. “A lot of students went to the Waterloo Public Interest Group meeting (WPIRG) after taking part in Green Spirit events, wanting to get involved in other projects,” said Evans. 550 volunteers in total were up

island in Uw’s Parking Lot A with a garden, but that project had to be rescheduled for spring 1994. Tree and shrub planting in Waterloo’s Meadowvale Park continued where it left off last year. Accounting students and City of Waterloo staff worked quickly and completed their task in only I I12 hours, much quicker than originally expected. The primary objectives at this site were to create a wildlife habitat and to make the surrounding landscape more attractive. Structures made of natural materials were built along the banks of Strasburg Creek by Environment and Resource Studies students to in-

crease the likelihood of trou t spawning. Approximately 7,500 trees were planted in Filsinger Park in Kitchener by about 450 students in the Arts and Engineering faculties including volunteers from St. Jerome’s College and Village I. This projeci created a more natural environment with hopes of increasing the

Controversy new athletic by Kiemn

over fee

Athletics plans to use the money to cover the operating costs of the new North Campus Recreation Facility that is being added to the Columbia Icefield. The funds will pay for a supervisor in the PAC weight room and a ‘roving’ supervisor who would look after both facilities on week-ends. First brought forward at the end of last year, the fee proposal has since been passed by a student athletics advisory board.

Imprint staff

Student affairs and the Athletics Department are looking to hit Waterloo students with a new ancillary fee. Labelled an Althletic Fee, this proposed charge of $5.50 per term for undergrads and $3.67 for grads would be included in the present athletics fee, bringing the total to $39 per term for undergrads and $26 for grads.

The proposal, however, is coming under heavy fire from the Federation of Students. “It’s completely inappropriate,” asserts Federation of Students President Catherine Coleman. According to the Federation, the proposal violates a decade-old agreement which states that student ancillary fees shall cover varsity athletics, while the university budget covers recreation costs. In the Campus Co-ordinated Plan it was agreed that funds received from student fees would be used to pay the capital expenses and not to cover operating costs for the new facility. The university has the power to force the fee through even if the Federation of Students continues to oppose the proposal. Athletics is presently considering redrafting the proposal after discovering $44,000 in funds left over from former matters regarding Seagram Stadium. The redraft will likely mean a cut in the proposed fee, not a complete elimination.

With the reaching of an agreement between the University of Waterloo and the Faculty Association on August 10, all employee groups within UW are now covered under Social Contract Legislation. Here’s a summary of those agreements: Staff Association (agreement reached on July 23): A wage freeze from April 30, I993 to April 30, 1996; three upaid days off in 1993-94, up to three unpaid days off in next two years; no wage increase for 1993.

If there’s one thing we know about students, it’s that sometimes they run on a tight budget. And since we were the first Canadian bank to introduce a student package three years ago, it’s something we’ve kept in mind. If you’re a full-time college’ or university student, you’re eligible for the Scotia Banking Advantage” package. This package includes a daily interest chequing account, an automated banking machine card, a ClassicVISAcard’ and for qualified graduating students, an auto loan.

Faculty Association (agreement reached on August 10): No scale salary increases before April I, 1996, but full progress-through-theranks (PTR) increases effective September I, 1993. Half PTR increases will come on May II I994 and May I, 1995; five unpaid days off between now and April 30, I994 and up to eight days off in 1994-95 and 1995-96; money for PTR increases will come from replacing retiring faculty with lower paid faculty and from more unpaid days off. In all three cases, employees earning less than $30,000 per year are not affected. An employee’s salary cannot be reduced below $30,000 as a result of Social Contract legislation. An editorial in the August issue of Staff Association newsletter protests against the FAUW’s agreement, saying that it will cost UW $ I .3 million more to cover’ the facutty PTR increases. “The fundamental difference between our group and the faculty group is tenure,” staff association president Linda Norton was quoted ar saying by the Gurette. “Our number one concern is job security and in” order to minimize job loss we need to carefully consider the long-term financial health of our institution as accurately as we can.”

Gotfa plan to improve student life?

Co-ordinated plan open for bus iness by Jill xnlplirtt

O’Hagan staff

Ever wonder what that extra $ IO fee called the “Coordinated Plan” on your Tuition Fee Statement is? It goes towards the Endowment Fund, a Committee that has $40,000 available for the funding of student life projects during the fall of 1993. The $ IO fee is being collected to build up the Endowment Fund, one of three iarts of the “Coordinated Plan to Improve the Quality of Student Life at UW” passed in a January I992 referendum. The other two components of the Coordinated Plan include a new Student Centre (opening-Fall I994), and a new Physical Recreation Facility

(opening-Fall 1994). The committee is chaired by Sharon Flood Vice President of University Affairs, and is comprised of I6 students who make decisions regarding the distribution of the Endowment funds. “The system works well because students are making the spending decisions,” said Endowment fund coordinator John teddy. The Endowment Fund Committee had $30,000 available during the Spring’93 term which was distributed to various campus organizations to improve safety and accessability. John teddy says he is/pleased with how we, (the committee), are fulfilling our priorities of safety and

accessability and hopefully we will continue in the same way”. Any recognized UW organization seeking funding for improvements can obtain a submission form from John Leddy’s office, the Turnkey Desk, or the FED Office between September 20 and October 15.

The main cause of student drop-out is stress stress over not having assignments finished, stress over not staying “caught-up” with the class, and stress over the realization that just staying “caughtup” isn’t going to be good enough. 1993 was the worst year in history for students getting jobs right out of college, and this next year looks even worse.

It isn’t always the smartest students who get the best grades, but it is always the best readers - the ones who can get the most out of their books on their own. Simply getting through your reading assignments will only give you the minimum that your professor iequires to pass you. Just passing your courses isn’t going to be good enough any more. In fact, having a diploma or a degree only allows you the opportunities of furthering your education with a more competitive group of fellow graduates. The ’90s will continue to be a decade filled with the most rapid change ever seen in history. Only those who are able to adapt to those changes will be able to remain competitive. Being able to read al1 your reading assignments and additiona reading selections with increased comprehension and recall will be a pre-requisite for anything you plan to do in the future.

A new student business organization has recently been born, with the UW Federation of Students as founding members. The Canadian Campus

Feds

Business Consortium (CCBC) held an organizational’conference in Winnipeg last month to define a structure and plan the organization’sgoals, which are based on improving student unions buying power. Fed President Catherine Coleman

oraanizatiori ~-~ -e-buying pow&-

attended the late August conference and explains the consortium’s goal as saving students’ money. “Right now there is a huge discrepancy in what some student governments are charged as opposed to others,” she said, giving the example of white 8x1 I paper which might cost one school $ I8 and could cost another

$45.

Such services as office and bar supplies, auditors and insurance could also be targeted, she said. Student associations would also have the option of opting out of any contract which does not save them money. “[CCBC] was formed so that [students] will realize savings,” said Coleman. Within the structure of the consortium, however, there has been a definite attempt to organize differently

than the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS), which also operates to save students money with its services. All but three of the fourteen schools interested in CCBC are former members of the CFS. While Coleman pIays down the connection between CCBC and CFS, the consortium’s “proposed concept outline,” dated August 20, specifically refers to CFS in its “structure” section. It reads: “Given the CFS experience, the issue of structure is crucially important.” The structural change CCBC has decided to make from the CFS’s model is the implementation of a weighted voting scale, with individual schools each receiving one vote plus additional votes based on their size. CFS maintains a one vote per school policy. “All of the interested schools in CCBC have had the CFS experience, except for Wilfrid laurier,” Coleman said. “I think that was in the back of all our minds.” CFS and CCBC also differ on their views regarding the mix of politics and business. While CFS regards the two as inextricable, CCBC maintains a strictly business outlook.

to

“We [CCBC] were uncomfortable with putting the two [business and politics] together under one umbrella,” said Coleman. “We felt: it’s a new initiative, let’s focus on one thing and do it right.” Jocelyn Charron, communications officer for CFS, however, disagrees with that approach. “It’s as if business should be conducted separate from any moral consideratik,” he said. “The fact is that

stated that CFS ornanizes itself in the rorm of a co-operative that doesn’t view it’s service organizations as purely business. “We will tie the way we operate our services and programs to some of our policies,” he said, adding that all CFS policies are voted on democratitally by the membership. CCBC, for now, is committed to its apolitical stance. “For the short term CCBC is just business,” said Coleman. Membership fees in CCBC could run as high as $8 825 for the initial year, according to the proposed concept outline. There would be no increase in the Fed fee however, said Coleman.

not just designed to be fun but also helped frosh to meet each other, and all organizers should get a pat on the back for the results of their work. Although attendance of daily activities seemed to slack off as the week went on, many activities were enjoyed. Some highlights: School spirit ran rampant at the Pep Rally, with all faculties trying to out-cheer each other; Casino Night (Arts & Science) was very cool; public school favourites like balloontoss and scavenger hunts went great with all the pizza and subs; the CFNY roadshow at Fed (Engineering & AHS) featured long line-ups and hyperactive dancers, with tunes a little different from the typical Fed Hall music. Green Spirit Day made everyone .

feel a little closer to nature, hopefully for longer than it took to clean the dirt from our fingernails; the Toga Parry at Bingeman was a blast even if MuchMusic didn’t play all requests (grrrrr) and oh yeah, everyone was really impressed with the Tool ceremony.. Unfortunately, the cheers of I993 were more politically correct than in other years, though the old inter-faculty rivalry had promoted just as much school spirit as (if not more than) putting down the “high school down the street”. Official frosh totals for this year, faculty-by-faculty: arts, 966; math, 8 IO; engineering, 755; science, 662; AHS, 290; environmental studies, 284; independent studies, 5.

Take I:Dack the night n ext week by Kieran Green Imprint staff One night without fear. Women of the Waterloo Region will walk through KW’s streets for the annual Take Back the Night March on Thursday September 23. The annual women only march, launched almost IO years ago in the KW area, is a demonstration to support women in their struggle to reclaim the right to be able to walk safely at night.

elude, a live music coffee house will take place at Market Square. Men may show their support by providing childcare during the march, assisting with the coffee house, and by educating other men about issues of violence against women. Members of the Men’s Network for Change will be active in this role. A meeting will be held Sunday, September I9 at 7 p.m, in the Women’s Centre for any women interested in marshatling.

“It’s very appropriate that we continue locally to express concern through this march,” said Donna Reid, executive director of the Waterloo County Women Teacher’s Association, which has just completed a province-wide campaign aimed at ending violence ag;linst women. Commencing at 7 p.m., the march will begin at the Seagram Drive entrance to Waterloo Park and will proceed to Speaker’s Corner where key issues, such as the double oppression of women, will be addressed.

The University of Waterloo has installed a new “automated attendant” telephone service for people ringing the campus, bypassing the regular “live” switchboard operator. The number to dial is 888-4567, ‘says Joan Wiley, manager of telephone services. “You will be greeted by the automated attendant electronic voice prompts. “When the automated attendant answers, you will be instructed to press ‘ I ’ from your touch tone phone. Once you have pressed ’ I ’ the automated attendant wit1 instruct you to dial the extension number followed by *#‘. “ To take advantage of the service, callers must know the campus extension of the person they are trying to reach (if you don’t, a “live” operator will then assist). The new service can only be used with a touch tone telephone; callers with rotary phones should continue calling the 885- I21 I number.

Armed with ugly t-shirts and yellow construction helmets, the engineers set out to proveto themselves and their classmates that they are tough enough to handle any situation thrown at them by their superior, previously initiated, engineering undergrads. Of thevarious inconveniences launched on these frosh, from their orange dye wash to the infamous stunts, no single activity make them stand out on campus more than their being paraded around in full yellow helmet. To the engineering undet-graduate, much like the soldier, their helmet is their identity, their security in a sea of unknown faces. Not until the end offrosh week, when learned and friendships begun, do the helmets begin to take a secondary role. However, well into their undergrad studies+ the engineers still reserve their helmet for occasions of group solidarity, such as a charitable “bus push,” or competitive varsity match. The engineering helmet remains the flag of engineering identity throughout the students’ years at university. Even the engineers’ unfortunate popular identity can be explained in terms of their helmet For the most part, engineering students have the reputation for being sexist, racist, and homophobic, at least more so than any other faculty on campus. Also, the issue of female students in engineering has raised more than a few concerns over the years in stalwart professoria1 offices. Engineering is one of the last bastions of patriarchy in academia, and it is only changing slowly. How does this relate to the helmet? Well, it is no secret that in most of western civilization education has as much to do with socialization as with teaching anyone anything. The regimentation of schedules, bells, and submission to authority all work well to ensure graduates are conditioned to accept the life of worker gracefully. The field of undergraduate engineering is no exception. The engineering profession demands a devotion to excellence (and rightly so if we aren’t to have faulty bridges and pacemakers, etc.), which is instilled with the engineering student from day one of fresh week. With the parading around 6f countless yellow headed late teenagers, engineers are ensuring the pacification of future engineers through - the indoctrination of group values over individuality. While this may benefit society through the engineer’s increased devotion to engineering excellence, it also perpetuates the attitudes of that patriarchal profession by constraining individual critical thought and self analysis. Why is it that we must subject these young people to such normalizing forces if universities our supposed to be founded on

ames Downer is a rare man. He is a president who leads. In a bureaucracy full of self-serving fat tions, Downey spots the nose on the face of the University of Waterloo and points it out to ’ all of us. In a speech that kicked off Faculty Development Days ‘93 on September 9, Downey told his audience a few things that should be pretty obvious to members of the administration and representatives of employee groups on this campus, principally that universities do not spend enough, time and effort on the main reason society tolerates them -- that is, the teaching of students. Two other recent developments on campus underscore the low spot which students occupy on the University of Waterloo’s totem pole. The first is discussions of increased ancillary fees and :an “omnibus” fee, either dr both of which could be in place by next fall. Ancillary fees are something we’ll have to get used to. An evaluation of what level of support students should be giving to non-academic services provided by universities is inevitable. But an omnibus fee is, quite simply, treachery. t Imagine combining a!l of the fees that you pay when you register into one large fee. Clearly, the university’s administration would have to keep a record of which departments and organizations get which monies. Thus, this breakdown would exist somewhere, but would not be shown to students. What possible reason would administration have for keeping this information from students? What possible overhead costs could exist to

persecution? I guess the standardizing powers of western culture are greater than those of the average frosh. Too bad.

The second troubling development is the suggestion by professor Ian Macdonald, head of the faculty association’s (FAUVV) negotiating committee, that increased student ancillary fees should be considered part of the university’s operating

I 7, I 993

budget, so that faculty could get the salary increases that were promised before the provincial government’s Social Contract legislation took hold. When Federation of Students president Catherine Coleman and Graduate Students Association president Duncan Phillips wrote Macdonald a letter which pointed out the inherent nonsensical quality of this proposal, he responded by saying that students are not employees of the University and therefore are to be ignored in discussions of the University’s budget “It certainly is true (and supported by the FAUW) that students, as students, should be treated fairly and ethically,” Maedonald wrote. “However, it is neither valid nor helpful to linkthis issue, as you do, with the very different issue of fair treatment on terms and conditions of employ ment of the employees (most of them long-term career employees).” Translation: the University of Waterloo exists to provide income to faculv, not to teach students and conduct research. Whither ancillary fees? On this matter, Macdonald completely misses the poinL Ancillary fees must, by definition, go toward services that are not related to the central mission of the university. If they are to be collected, they should not go into the university’s main operating budget. If they are applied to services which are not related to academics, then they would not represent an increase in the pool of money that the University uses to pay its faculty. If Macdonald thinks that faculty salaries are an appropriate use for student ancillary fees, then perhaps he would support the notion thatfaculv themselves are literally ancilhry to the central mission of the university. It certainly would help the university, and by extension the province, to meet its social contract obligations if tenure were eliminated and the university was free to jettison the professorial cords of rotting dead wood that exist within its walls.

As far as tenured professors are concerned, it is difficult to think of which public employees in these recent Social Contract talks have more secure employment than these. Coleman and Phillips label Maedonald’s sug gestion as “reprehensible”; I applaud them for their restraint, I can only imagine what they would have liked to call it in private. To quote the wise words of vice-president, academic and provost lames Kalbfleisch at July’s emergency board of governors meeting, “University staff do not have tenure.” How can the University even compose a sensible definition of “fair and equitable” treatment between employee groups when one of thosegroups, faculty, has about as much chance of being dismissed for incompetence as does a member of the Royal Family? + Back to Jim Downey. The UW Gazette quoted Downey as saying that universities spend an “enormous amount of time on curriculum issues -- devising new courses, revising old ones, arr;mging and rearranging requirements. By contrast, we devote remarkably little time to discussion or activities aimed at improving either teaching or student learning.” On the administrative side, this observation has a disturbing corollary. This university, and its shareholders, spend little time thinking about what would benefit students. “It’s important to have students involved in the [ancillary fee] review process,” UW treasurer Dorothy Battae is quoted by the Gazette as saying. For the real importance of students at this university, just look to the substance of these two proposals. Let’s roll all of your fees up into one big, convenient one (just so you’re saved the bother of having to thinkaboutthem) and let’s pay faculty with your ancillary fees. Bend over, UW students. Prepare to be boarded.

U W landlord not fair

Xiuchuan

PeHo sez thanks

To the editor: At this time of year students from across the globe return to Waterloo for another year of schooling. One of their first encounters, good or bad, is with their landlord. We wish to advise fellow students amidst their academic preparations to inform themselves about their rights as tenants before the law. Nothing can turn a good semester into a bad memory more than a running conflict with one’s landlord. Imagine this, you have most of your material belongings in a friend’s apartment. You arrive on the 3 l st of the month to pick them up and move them to another apartment within the same complex only to find that the apartment had been emptied, and all your clothes, furniture, textbooks and letters discarded in the garbage bins. You sort through the garbage and retrieve a sock here, a textbook there. Most of your furniture, although not new, certainly usable, has been deemed unwanted. The landlord tenant act is on your side, but you are unaware of its full extent. The landlord tells you he is justified because you had not come earlier to pick up your belongings. What would you do? How would y,ou feel? In what ways would such a start to the school term affect your academic performance. This was dur recent experience at Married Students apartments. Yes, even at the University of Waterloo, there is room for improvement in the way management handles their student population. The moral of the story to our fellow students - take the time to get informed about your rights before the law as tenant in Ontario and your recourse to agencies such as the Tenant Review Board, Legal Aid and the on-campus Ombudsperson. It might just save your school year by allowing you to accomplish the real reason

I admit that we have turned over the reigns of power to an elitist group of people who seem to think that their primary purpose in life is the preservation of their position of power. We don’t like being subjected to this farce. But are we angry enought to make change? No. Not a change of the nature that Bookchin proposes. Lobby groups are a prime example of the typical attitude of Canadians toward their role in society. One might argue that their presence in Canada is a clear indicator that people not only want change, but that they are ready to actively bring it about. I disagree. It is my opinion that the majority of these lobby groups are merely trying to further their own interests within sociey. And this is often done with little or no regard for the rest of society. Genemtions of democracy have taught us that our circle of concern should be the preservation of our own individual rights and freedoms. I don’t believe in rights. I believe in privileges. Implementation of a plan like confederal municipalism requires that all people, including politicians, commit themsetves to working toward the good of the group. We need to live at the mercy of one another, not at each other’s expense. A society based on selftshness will not survive, it will disintegrate. A house divided truly cannot stand! Have I offended anyone! Do you think I am not giving the electorate enough credit? Then prove me wrong by getting involved and taking responsibility for the country in which we live.

presumeably as opposed to viewing politics as a means of aquiring personal wealth, power and prestige. This is a noble idea. I strongly support men like Chee and Bookchin in their efforts to conceive of and propagate such things as Bookchin’s confederal municipalism as viable alternatives to our present system of government. However, I would like to voice a concern regarding the present state of the electorate in this country that people who plan on implementinga plan like confederal municipalism will have to consider. My concern is this: Are the majority of Canadians distressed enough at the current state of affairs to take part in such a bold initiative as the implementation of a new politics? I think not. Did the majority of UW students actually read all the way through Chee’s letter to see if the point he was making was valid or did they get scared off or bored by the word government and then quickly fIip a page so as to indulge themselves in the cerebral jello of “How to become a Media Surfin’ Critic?” The “revolution” that Bookchin and others advocate would involve an enormous undertaking on behalf of the “common beer drinking Canadian” (thank you Ms. Cambell) or even the lowly university student. Are we prepared for this? Are we prepared to accept reponsibility for our government? Wouldn’t it be much easier for us all if we just continued to absolve ourselves of that responsibility ? We could just continue to heap blame on those who are in power, as if they’re completely responsible for all of our present problems, and occupy ourselves with digging up titilIating tidbits in order to smear the various elected officials we love to hate.

in Islam

E. Rehan

Charity in Islam, in the sense of giving away part of one’s wealth, is of two kinds: voluntary and obligatory. The most frequently recurring words for charity in the Qur’an are: (I) ‘Infaq’ which means spending benevolently, (2) ‘Ihsan’ which means doing of good, (3) ‘Zakat’ which means growth and purification, and (4) ‘Sadaqah’ which signifies a charitable deed. ‘Zakat’ is the only compulsory charity in Islam. ‘Zakat’ is an annual charge on property which remains in the possession of a person for a whole year, when its value exceeds a certain amount. Generally, the ‘Zakat’ is levied at almost a uniform state, being 2.5 per cent on the accumulated wealth. ‘Zakat’ is not merely on the cash-balance; it is also charged on gold, silver, merchandise, cattle, and other valuables. ‘Zakat’ is a manifestation of faith that affirms that GOD is the sole owner of everything in the universe, and what humans hold is a trust in their hands over which GOD made them trustees to discharge it as HE has laid down: “Believe in ALLAH (GOD) and HIS Messenger and spend of that over which HE made you trustees.“[57:7j ‘Zakat’ is a means of redistribution of wealth in a way that reduces differences between classes and groups. It makes a fair contribution to social stability. By purging the soul of the rich from selfishness and the soul ofthe poor from envy and resentment against society; ‘Zakat’ stops up the channels leading to class hatred and makes it possible for the springs of sisterlbrotherhood and solidarity to gush forth. Such stability is not merely based on the personal feelings of the rich; it stands on a firmly established right for the poor. The other types of charity in Islam are optional. However, Islam has promisedgreat reward for those voluntary charities. In Islam, Charity has been given a very wide meaning. It means any benefit done to any person (or animal), economic, spiritual, moral, or consolatory. Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said: ‘Every good deed is a charity.’ In Islam, kind words are better than charity followed by harming the poor people whom were given the charity. “The parable of those who spend their substance in the way of GOD is that of a grain of corn: it grows seven ears, and each ear has a hundred grains. GOD gives manifold increase to whom HE pleases: and GOD cares for all and HE knows all things. w Those who spend their substance in the cause of GOD, and follow not up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with harm: for them, their reward is with their LORD: on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve. * Kind words and the covering of faults are better than charity followed by injury. GOD is Free of all wants and HE is most Forbearing.” [2:26 I-2631 This article is excerpted from both the Islamic book ‘The Fundamental Tbachings of Qur’an and Hadith’ by Nisar Ahmed and the Islamic brochure ‘Concept of Worship in Islam’ by the World Assembly of Muslim Youth.

-“W/XI are you?” -“Ah, the eternal question.” -scene from the movie Barfry Fade in to the scene. Frosh party-September. Chicks, studs. Ripped jeans, bad haircuts. A beautiful blond wiggles up to you, “Hi, what do you do?” “Oh me?” You answer, while you feel your crotch playing tricks against your will. You search frantically for the correct response. Deep inside you wish to say, “I want to “do” you sweetheart.” However, your developed superego keeps you in line, and you lie smoothly. “Uh, I’m in commerce. How ‘bout you?” Giggling, almost choking on her gum she answers you. “I’m in psyche. Can you get me a beer, cutie.)” Although you doubt you’ll see her naked tonight you decide to be a nice guy, and get her a beer. “Hell”, you think to yourself, “Maybe the beer will help...” You bring her back the coolest Black Label bottle you could find. You needn’t bother to look for a glass. As you hand her the beer, she asks, “So, what’s your name?” since you lied to her about your being a commerce major, you may as well give her a fake name, just in case. “My name’s Tom.” “Oh, like Tom Cruise.” ‘Yeah, right” “I love him. He’s adorable, you look like him.” You thought she might say that. Inside of you there is this shitty feeling. You feel you’ve been reduced to a Commerce major, and a Tom Cruise poster boy. You want to ask her how important it is whether you are in Commerce or Philosophy. You decide “What the Hell”, and ask her. As you move toward her you gaze up from her hips waist and tits, you notice her eyes just above her full red lips. This is the first time you actually see her - this beautiful blond. You notice something you hadn’t seen before. You ask, “What does it matter what I do, or what my major is?” “Well,” she says, “it is one of my principles that I don’t go to bed with Commerce students. I prefer philosophy majors over everyone else, because after the big “O”, (orgasm) they can discuss the ontological argument for the existance of God with me. And I like that in a guy.” “Actually”, she says, “I’m a drama major, not a psyche major. And I prefer Sergman films to anything Tom Cruise has done, You see I do this dumb blond routine every year to find out what guys are made of. Most of them like you see only my lips, tits and figure, and you think you’ve got me pigeonholed as the mindless centerfold from a magazine with a title like “College Babes in Heat.” Well...” You blush red. She goes on telling you how she asked a friend about you early on in the evening, and how she was thin king she’d like to get to know you better, but after ~:his incident, she’N look ebewhere. You try to gather the courage to say that you are sorry to her, and you should try to get enough courage to say sorry to yourself.

by Leslie Warren special to Imprint Vegetarianism is not a fad, nor is it a flaky, overly sentimental, non-factual concept. It is merely the only means by which we, the human inhabitants of the earth, will be able to avoid ecological disaster and live a truly peaceful existence. Animal agriculture is much less efficient in its use of water and land resources than that of plant food agriculture. The land that plant food utilizes provides us with food, but the land that livestock farming uses first feeds the animals, then even more land is used to raise the animats, to finally feed us. It is merely an inefficient use of land. For example, an acre of land growing broccoli will produce ten times the calories, protein, and niacin that beef production will produce on the same land. The land growing broccoli will also produce 24 times the iron, 80 times the vitamins B I and B2, and 650 times the calcium. Two hundred litres of fresh water are used to produce one kilo of wheat, while 20 000 litres of fresh water are used to produce one kilo of meat. Forests play a vital role in the world today. They are necessary for life on earth, yet they b are being eliminated at an alarming rate. In the U.S., the single greatest enemy of forest land is the demand for cattle grazing land. The main cause of the deforestation in Latin America is atso the demand for cattle grazing land. It is estimated that 5 square metres of tropical rainforest is cleared for each hamburger produced from cattle grazed on Latin American soil. It is clear that there simply is not enough usable land available in the world to sustain a meat-eating population. Animal food production is energy inefficient. The production and harvesting of meat, fish, and fowl uses almost all of the energy in the U.S. food system. The amount of energy wasted by the meat industry is obvious when you consider the following. The production of corn yields 83.33 food calories per calorie of fossil fuel energy input. For rice, the amount is 9.50 calories. For feedlot beef, only 0.03 Eaf my rump, please... food calories are produced. Another way to look at this is if every human being ate a meatand through the wastes produced by slaughcentred diet, the world’s known oil reserves terhouses.

Men .who eat meat and dairy products daily are 3.6 times more likely to develop fatal prostate cancer than thosewho eat meat and dairy products sparingly.

ous? Many of us are health conscious. In spite of attempts by the meat industry, most of us are aware of the ill effects that meat eating has on our health. Research shows that the average American man who eats meat has a 50% chance of dying of a heart attack. By avoiding a meat-centred diet this risk is reduced to

mothers is 35% higher. Thegrowth hormones in meat have caused girls to physically mature at very early ages. Clearly, a meat-centred diet is a very unhealthy diet. Many people will admit that cutting down meat consumption is good for one’s health, however, most will be afraid of not getting enough protein without eating animals (the big “protein myth”). The fact is, protein is the easiest nutrient to get. An entirely random selection of plant foods, containing enough calories to sustain life, will also provide more than enough protein. It is almost impossible to develop a protein deficiency on a calorically adequate diet. Cows do not eat meat to get protein; they eat grass and grains. It is that simple. The value of a food’s protein lies in its amino acid composition. When meat is eaten, it is broken down into amino acids to construct the protein that the body needs. So, by eating meat, you are making your body do extra work since it is harder for the body to digest meat than it is to digest plant food. It is also commonly argued that people need to eat meat in order to get vitamin B- 12. Vitamin E- I2 is produced by micro- organisms that live in the environment and in the bodies of human beings. The amount of B-l 2 required by the body is very low, so it’s nearly impossible not to get enough. Deficiencies arise due to inabilities in absorbing the vitamin, which has been linked with the absence of the “intrinsic factor” in the digestive tract, or with deficiencies in folacin, B-6, or iron. However, research shows that this has no connection to a meat-free diet. Basically+ if you take care of getting all the other required nutrients (which is easily done on a meat-free diet), B-l 2 will take care of itself. In this age, we boast of our technological advancesand our ability to see and understand like no age before ours has been able to do. Yet we fail to see the burden which our own diet places on our fragile planet. How can one claim to be opposed to water pollution and at the same time eat meat? How can one urge people to “take the bus” or “car pool” and at the same time eat meat? How can one preach “environmental awareness” when the contents of their plate contributes to the destruction of that very environment? How can one claim to care about world starvation when their diet promotes the waste and hoarding of food energy? It is plain to see that our planet is in trouble. It is also plain to see that a meat eating diet contributes to this trouble. Now is the time to stop talking and start doing, if you really care.

Among the many uniformed people that work at the University of Waterloo, nineteen of them have the power to arrest you. The University of Waterloo’s Police Service, housed in the Security building at the north-east corner of the ring road,. is not a rent-a-cop operation. A lot of frosh and returning students may not realize it, but the university’s police force is the same as any other, with one exception -they don’t carry guns. Aside from this difference, they have the same powers as any other police officer in the

In pursuit, I can nail them at King Street and arrest them. We are full police officers . . . any law that can be enforced by any other Ontario police officer can be enforced by the University of Waterloo Police.” The department is currently staffed by officers with experience in Metro Toronto, Jamaica, the O.P.P. and Ireland, Officers among other places. patrol the 9OO-acre campus on foot, by bicycle, or in one of two marked police cruisers twentyfour hours a day, year round. Campus life may seem pretty laid back, but the police have to deal with bicycle thefts, stolen cars, choose choking babies, domestic disputes, break and enters, drunks, drugs and so on. It’s best to be congenial if you run into them, however, as charging someone is up to the individual officer’s discretion, and there are no quotas to be filled. “I’m not there to jump on people just because I’m a policeman. I’m there to help everyone” says MacDonald. If you do need help, UW Police can be reached at 888-49 I I twenty-four hours a day. The number can be diated toll-free from any of the pay phones on campus, and the phones on the yellow “help lines” are connected directly to their office. Similarly, dialing 9- I- I will cause the university police to be dispatched to the scene. I.

Chomsky Hollywood

goes to (in Canada)

by Stephen Cwchman special to bnprint Monufaduring Consent. Noum Chomsky and the Media (Screening Monday, September 20, DC 1304, 7pm) is a film about American intetlectual Noam Chomsky and his continued attack on thought control in democratic society. The manufacture of consent that Chomsky describes is not so much a covert operation as it is a growing structural phenomenon within the media institutions themselves, where ownership is highly concentrated, advertisers need appeasement, sources of information are becoming fewer and more standardized, and where conformity is encouraged while dissent is quietly but efficiently marginalized. By comparing the media coverage of similar atrocities undertaken by official American enemies as opposed to official friends, the film examines how manipulation of media benefits the political and business elite. Chomsky juxtaposes the damning mediacoverage ofthe Khmer Rouge’s brutalities in Cambodia with the media silence surrounding the Indonesian invasion of East Timor and the subsequent murder of much of the population. Chomsky relies on foreign policy examples to support his arguments, but one could use the same techniques to analyze media coverage of

Amnesty International is a worldwide voluntary movement that works impartially to prevent violations, by governments, of people’s fundamental human rights. Canadian Group I 18, located at UW Campus, works to free prisoners of conscience, to ensure fair and prompt trials for political prisoners, to abolish the death penalty, torture and other cruel treatment of prisoners, and to end extrajudical executions and “disappearances” by writing fetters to those responsible for violating these rights. We strive to increase human rights awareness of group members and the university community through meetings, speakers, and campus events. We invite you to become involved in our Morocco Disappearance Dossier by reading the following case study and writing brief letters to the King and Prime Minister of Morocco. Members of Amnesty Group I I8 are currently investigating the disappearances, in territory controlled by Morocco, of many Sahrawis (people of Wester Saharan origin) since 1975. We are particularly concerned about the cases of two women: Mgaili Ment Yahdih Ould Embarek, born in I95 I in Laayoune; and Zouina Ment Muftah Ould Mahjoub, born in I957 in lzik. Both women were arrested shortly before a visit by King Hassan II of Morocco to Laayoune in March of 1985. Moroccan authorities are re-

Why, in the coverage of the Braer oil spill, was there a predominance of video bytes from experts saying that rough weather would disperse the oil and virtually no examination of why it is necessary to ship vast quantities of oil to Canada in the first place? As Chomsky sees it, there are several things we can do to combat indoctrination. Becoming aware of the linkages between government, business and the media is a first step. Once people recognize that there are vested interests in presenting certain perspectives in the news they will be less likely to take everything they read or see on television at face value. Secondly, people need to read the alternative press. In many ways, alternative press, radio and television are the heroes in this battle, since they often alert the world to hidden injustices, as was the case with East Timor. Networks of alternative and community press, radio and television are vital in a media world which is becoming increasingly homogenized. If you have not already done so, take the time to see Manufacturing Consent. In a society bombarded by media images and information, it is a film well worth seeing.

These disappearances constitute a violation of the right to life, liberty, and security of persons as per UNITED NATIONS’ UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS. Please write polite letters to the addresses listed below, Letters should provide brief details about the case, and should then express concern that these women disappeared after their arrest by Moroccan authorities in March I985 Letters should incfude requests for information about the reasons for their arrest, their place of detention after their arrest, whether they were tried (and if tried, what the verdict was), and their current situation(s). Finally, letters should urge that the Moroccan government hold a public inquiry into the fate of hundreds of Sahrawis who have disappeared since t 975.

In January, 1992, UW students agreed, through a referendum, to fund the construction of a new Student Centre.

Unfortunately, the numbers we are workingwith here are those from the 199 I-1992 school year, as the figure for the subsequent years are unavailable. There are three significant costs to running co-op. I ) Work related: encompassing co-op education, its space required, and computing costs. 2) Academic delivery: the costs associated with providing exactly the same curricula to both student streams - not the reduced course offerings of most other uni.. versmes -- must be absorbed. The government of Ontario will subsidize two streams if and only if one is taught in french. 3) Operating year-round: it has been shown in a study by Woods, Gordon and Co. Management Consultants that operating a school year-round significantly increases its overall operating costs.

Last Saturday’s season-opening tilt between the Waterloo football Warriors and University of Toronto Varsity Blues was a perfect example of what happens when you give a nationallyranked team enough chances to score. EventuaHy, they will capitalize. At Seagram Stadium, Waterloo lost 22-3 despite holding Toronto’s potent offence to three points and 48 net yards in the first half. In other OUAAaction, the Wilfrid laurier Golden Hawks torched the

Windsor Lancers 55-6, the Western Mustangs came back to edge the Guelph Gryphons 25-24, and the McMaster Marauders handled the York Yeomen 24-14. (For a preview of Waterloo versus York, see page 18.) Last Saturday at Seagram, Uw’s defensive performance dipped somewhat in the second half and the offence never did get on track. “We didn’t play well in many areas,” head coach Dave “Tuffy” Knight said. *‘We tommitted four turnovers and Toronto had none. Toronto’s too good of a team to spot them four turnovers.‘*

The first of those turnovers gaveToronto a 7-O lead early as UW kicker Rick Guenther couldn’t handle a high snap while attempting to punt. He booted the ball back to Waterloo’s goalline while trying to recover it and Blues fullback Brian Muxlow recovered for a touchdown. In the second quarter, the Blues converted a fumble recovery at Waterloo’s I 8-yard line into another three points. Late in the half, Guenther connected from 27 yards out to cut Toronto’s lead to I O-3. That scoring drive was keyed by a 5 I -yard scamper by

fullback Mike Mallot, who ran 27 yards on Waterloo’s next possession before the half ended. Toronto pivot Mario Sturino began to open the game up midway through the third quarter with a I3yard touchdown pass to slotback Scott Mitchell. capping a 79-yard drive. “We threw a bit better in the second half,” Knight said. This was especially true during the third quarter. Midway through that period, Bennet put together a good drive starting at Waterloo’s 23-yard

The UW Rugby Club’s 25th anniversary season started off on a very good note last weekend. It was Warrior Alumni weekend and a number of very successful events were held to honour the contributions of Waterloo Rugby players past and present to the development of a very successfuf athletic club over the last 25 _ years. Kicking off the 25th anniversary festivities was the reception held at the University Club on Saturday night for both Alumni and present players. Among those in attendance were former UW athletics director Carl fotzke, men’s interuniversity athletics coordinator Don McCrae, vice-president, university relations Roger Downer, and George Jones, one of the founding fathers of rugby in Ontario. The chief purpose of this reception was to honour those players and coaches that have, over the 25-year history of the club, made indispensable contributions to the development and success thereof. Lifetime membership awards were presented to the following former members of UW rugby football clubs:

York, of course. After barely losing to the Guelph Gryphons the week before, Waterloo broke out of their almost-five-year slump in a big way, pasting the Yeomen 32-9. The Warriors weren’t just satisfied with one win, either, as they went on to win their three remaining games to finish 4-3 and capture their first playoff berth in eleven years. Warrior head coach Dave “Tuffy” Knight wishes everybody would shut up about the streak. He says that the Yeomen are better this year than they’ve been in a while and, from UW’s perspective, certainly don’t need another reason to win. “York played pretty well against McMaster,” Knight said. “They had five turnovers on punt returns and were still in the game. They ran the ball pretty well, but special teams is what killed them.” Knight says he remembers last year’s 26 I I win over York as “one of the most physical games we were in.”

When your season is only seven games long, as it is in OUAA football, every game is a must-win situation. But for the Waterloo Warriors and York Yeomen, tomorrow’s game at North York’s Esther Shiner Stadium is a must-win game of record-setting proportions. Well, record-tying, anyway. With the McMaster Marauders’ 24- I4 victory over York last Saturday, the Yeomen have lost 32 consecutive games dating back to October I, 1988, one game shy of Waterloo’s CIAU record of 33. And who did York beat on that fatefui day? Waterloo, of course. Peter Tchir missed a tough 39-yard field goal to end the game and York won 20- 19. But wait, the synchronicity doesn’t end there. Who did Waterloo beat on September 30, 1989 to end their losing streak?

“We ended up winning by 15, but we were only up 4-4 at halftime, so that tells you how tough this York team is.” The Yeomen repeated that pattern last week, as the score was tied I4- I4 against McMaster at halftime. Running back Leonard Jean-Pierre led the Yeoman attack and all OlJAA rushers with I67 yards on IS carries and two touchdowns. He also returned a kickoff 7byards and earned OUAA athlete of the week honours. Jean-Pierre average 53.5 yards on two kickoff returns, while teammate P. J. Edgeworth had one return for 34 yards. The Yeoman passing game stumbled with Mac defenders Tyson Griffith and Dave Sturgie each getting a pick. York’s defence allowed the second-best rushing performance that day as McMaster’s Jason Pardo rushed 29 times for I I I yards and two scores. The Yeoman secondary can certainly be exploited, as they allowed Mac quarterback Mike Kennedy to throw for 205 yards on I4-of- I 5 passing.

Sunday’s game at Bechtel Park against the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks will be a “bloodbath,” says Waterloo Warrior soccer head coach Dave Benning. His team is looking forward to the game, where the Warriors face one of their most hated rivals in what should be a strongly played and entertaining game. On Saturday (tomorrow}, the Warriors will host the Brock Badgers at at Columbia Field at I:00 p.m. This game will help the team get ready for the Golden Hawks and hopefully provide them with some necessary practice and cohesion. Under overcast skies and fighting a strong northeast wind, the Waterloo soccer squad managed to squeak out a 2-2 draw with the Guelph Gryphons in the home opener of the Warriors’ 25th anniversary season last Sunday, September 12. Both sides made it clear that this was early in the season, as the play was choppy at best and the passing lacked anything resembling precision. Waterloo looked imposing in the warmups, except for a shaky looking keeper, but both assessments proved the reverse once the game began. Guelph, with the wind behind them, attacked early and had the first real scoring chance. A nasty tackle by Waterloo’s goalie Abdel Plummer resulted in. a penalty kick for Guelph, which barely missed the lower left corner. Poor passing ruined a lot of Warrior’s rushes, as they were unable to complete the crosses. Waterloo’s Andre Lynn scored first on a seemingly harmless play late in the first half, as a Gryphon defender tried to head the bail clear near his own goal, but sent it spinning into the net instead. This proved to be important as the Waterloo defensive corps went from bad to worse between halves, looking more porous with every play. The Gryphons pressed hard early in the second, having some excellent opportunities, and starting Waterloo’s

defense panicking. Plummer made an outstanding save on a very close ground shot, reaching back to stop a sure goal with his hand. However, the defense looked pathetic as they were unable to clear the ball, choosing to try to carry it out rather than kick it forward out of harm’s way. Guelph’s Marco Del Rosario equaiized early with a chip shot over Plummer as he was left alone to face an onslaught. and they took the lead on a Clay Holmes goal after the Warriors coughed up the ball repeatedly in their own end. The number of giveaways made a Gryphon goal just a matter of time. Waterloo rounded out the scaring in the second on a penalty kick, as Warrior Rick Bazzerello was checked outside the box, but fell heavily inside the goal area. He subsequently buried his chance hard into the middle of the net. Another late chance was wasted as the Waterloo forward couldn’t put it away with the Gueiph keeper down and out of the play, and time to shoot, obviously displeasing coach Benning. Questionable tackles resulted in some slapping, wrestling, and kicking on the ground, as Waterloo took exception to some dirty Guelph play by their forwards. A brusque “That’s enough!” from coach Benning ended the first bout quickly, while the second incident involving the Waterloo keeper lasted a little longer. The coach was pleased with his team’s performance, confident that it will improve by leaps and bounds as the season progresses and the players get to know each other’s play better. He noted that for a first game the play was acceptable, although Guelph’s play forced Waterloo to play very tough. but still within the rules. Fan turnout was pitiful, as apparently frosh have no spirit. That an engineer scored Waterloo’s tying goal should have resulted from delirium from the crowd, but none was fot-thcoming. Hopefully at the next two games, Saturday at Columbia fields and Sunday at Bechtei Park, Waterloo will have a strongcontingen t of fans to cheer them on. Both games are at I AI0 p.m.

The Watertoo Athena and Warrior cross country teams started off the 1993 season with excellent results in the University of Cuelph Invitational cross country meet last Saturday, September I I. The conditions were perfect on race day with tight winds and an ambient temperature of about I5 degrees. The course consisted of a scenic tour through the university arboretum. The men’s team finished in a strong fourth overall position. The men’s course went twice around the arboretum route, over a rolling gravel trail of 4.7 kilometres. The team was led by seasoned veteran jason Gregoire who placed third individually with a very fast time of 3 I: 14. Gregoire, having come off a successful summer track season, was more than ready for the competition last Saturday. Jonathan Cressman was our second scorer, placing 16th in 32:s I, with Mike Readey finishing 34th in 3420. Scott McDonald managed to follow closely, placing 34th in 34:30. Michael Tripp, the team’s first rookie of the season, finished 4 I st in 35:04. Brent Curry placed 47th in 37: I 0. Our final Warrior finisher, Kregg Fordyce, who is better known for his successattheC1AU indoor trackchampionships in I992,finished 50th in 38:34. Fordyce sets a fine example for all other track athletes who should be out running cross country. After a first week of intensive training for the Athenas and Warriors, the small hills at Guelph were a welcome sight for the Athenas compared to the sand dunes at Grand Bend. Athena Judith LeRoy was the first Waterloo athlete to complete the 4.7” km course, finishing in a speedy I7:44. -._ . . . _. . _. I hrs placed her eighth overall,

LeRoy’s dedication and hard work this summer forecast a tremendous upcoming season for her. An outstanding performance by Sarah Brown saw her cross the finish line hot on the heels of LeRoy in 12th place with a time of 18: 10. Brown, like LeRoy, has come off an intense summer triathlon training program which has seen h’er improve dramatically over the past year. Coming in 15th position was super masters rookie Sherry Carter with a time of I8:34. Carter is in her first year of her masters in kinesiology. showing you’re never too old or too married to jorn a varsity team.

In 17th place and right behind Carter was Sepanta Dorri, in a time of 18142. Rounding things up was Cindy Koo in 30th position in a time of 20:46. The Athenas placed second overall behind the University of Toronto, and ahead of Guelph, Queen’s, Ottawa, McMaster, and Brock. They owe their success to their ability to work as a team, each running closely behind each other. Thanks go out to coaches Brent McFarlane and John Swarbrick for their encouragement and undying screams of support. The Athenas’ and Warriors’ next action takes place Saturday, September 18 (tomorrow) in London, at the Western Invitational.

Cross country team survives sand storm

like sands through the hourglass, varsity cross country teams.

by Victoria Seay Imprint sports Ahhh. Labour Dar weekend at Grand Bend: a time to relax, kick back and head to the beach.

Of course, for the varsity cross country team, “relaxing at the beach” takes on a strange new connotation. Saturday morning of the near-sacred long weekend, a hearty band of intrepid runners set forth on an arduous journey to pre-season training camp at Port Franks on the shore of Lake Huron, not far from the ever-popular beaches of Grand Bend. Six men and four women, as weI1 as a gathering of sprinters (complete with a personal film crew!) from the K-W Track and Field Club, arrived to soak up the sun, sky and sand. And more sa Mountains of it tow ingoff into the hazygl of the midday sun dune after endless dl I believe there ists no sight more pealing to the siigl warped mind of a r ner (except perhaps thoughtof running b: foot over a bed of coals carrying an training camps of ephant or two, that’s another story And so the Ir day of running began, and quickly came to rest ble one of those interminable days from Murray’s Groundhog Day. An infinite series of hills succeeded in red ingeven the strongest runners to all fours at so

points, with quadriceps at the point of explosion and bodies pushed to the limit. But with the encouragement of coach John Swarbrick, head coach Brent McFarlane, and new addition to the coaching staff Gary Wilson, the team ran tough and kept spirits high. Six hours, countless miles, and hundreds of sit-ups and push-ups later, our crew plunged blissfully into the rolling waves of Lake Huron to celebrate a day well done. Congrats go out to our new trainer Kevin who survived his first day with the team, and who was welcomed with one sprained ankle, one asthmaattack, several barbed wire surface wounds, and one spectacular swan dive down a hill by this year’s OUAA 3000-metre champ Jason Gregoire. Someone will have to let jason know that headfirst is not necessarily the most efficient method of descent. (Hope we got it on video!) We’re happy to state that no injuries were sustained as a result of the invasion of the monster trucks, although we were suitably entertained when the trucksgotstuckon thesame hillswe had run up only minutes earlier. For those following the team from last year,

our roster is looking full again for this season. On the Athena side, Iast year’s dynamic duo of Sarah Brown and judith Leroy are back to terrorize the trails, as is our local hufler and puffer Victoria Seay. Rookie Sherry Carter survived her initiation and is a welcome addition to the team. As for the Warriors, Jason Gregoire will be back to lead the men, with Jonathan Cressman hot on his heels. Veterans Scott McDonald and Mike Ready are looking ready to run, and rookies jim Myelet and Sean Lavigne took their baptism by sand very well. The rest of the team will be rounded up as the fall term begins. So, sunburnt and caked with sand, our ten weary runners piled back into the vans, fortified with lemonade for the long journey home. Racing season began with the Guelph Invitational last weekend and the Western Invitational tomorrow in London. Until then, the team will be training hard, gathering up the rest of our runners, and trying to get the w%$!@ sand out of our ears! So remember+ runners, these words to live by: who needs oxygen anyway?

Expansion the United States is the best thing ever to happen to the Canadian Football League, and heralds the beginning of renewed interest and growth in the league. Many would disagree with this, but the facts are against them. The CFL has been stagnant and small for far too long, causing fans to lose interest. American expansion, and the consequent controversy and media attention will gradually induce fans to watch and support the CFL.

Expansion doesnot mark the end uf the Cunadian Football League, but a revit&ed future. Here’s why, alung with a list of the top 20 candidates. cities rejected. Whatever cities don’t get an NFL team will be very interested in pursuing the CFL. Memphis has made overtures of this nature and several cities have shown their desire for a professional team by taking part in both the USFL and WLAF, notably Birmingham, Orlando, and San Antonio. All have expressed CFL interest. So has Fargo, North Dakota (population, 80,000). Just for having the gumption to ask for a team, I think they should get one.

4. Birmingham, Alabama -- The Stallions of the USFL and the Fire of the WLAF show they want football. No other pro sport is in the area, and the city of 280,000 has the 70,000 seat Legion Field. 7. Charlotte, North Carolina -- Close to 400,000, and only the Hornets (NBA) and college sports to watch. Could be good with a nearby rival. 8. Jacksonville, Florida -- An NFL exhibition city that has been crying for the NFL for years. Have recently expressed interest in the CFL. A stadium and population of 673,000 are ready and waiting.

that s

neglected 336,000 of Omaha and nearby 200,000 of Lincoln make this a great area. College football is king here, so with some key college signings a Nebraska team could generate some serious fan support. 18. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma -- Another neglected city, with 444,000, and another IOO.000 plus nearby. Great football support for college ball,and they once hada USFLfranchise. Nebraska and Oklahoma together would really break into the US Midwest market 19. Monterrey, Mexico -- Over a million pe: ple in the area, fairly close to the States, and thr would love to have a CFL team, according to Larry

The United States Football League of the mid-‘80s failed because it was in direct competition with the NFL, luring big name players with big bucks. At one point, the Donald Trump-owned New Jersey Generals had Doug Flutie, Jim Kelly, and Herschel Walker on the roster. USFL teams were vying for the sports dollar of fans by being in NFL markets, and they didn’t have many dollars of their own. Financially, the USFL was not stable from the beginning, and was very much a fly-by-night operation.

ttle sports interest. Facilities and competition fro in the area are also factors, 3s a s important for football, and a 5 won’t another team. This en proximity to the NFL. Unfortunately, the 100-km limit will eliminate Detroit and St. Petersburg, both of which have the population, the facilities (Tiger Stadium and the Suncoast Dome) and the interest.

Expansion

The CFL is not in competition with the NFL,

Not CFL Versus NFL The CFL is not in competition with the NFL. nor do they intend to be. Commissioner Larry Smith has said he doesn’t want to put the CFL within IO0 kilometres of the NFL. Nor is the CFL trying to steal NFL players, although they’d like the big names. Historically the CFL has released players who wanted to try out for the NFL, and welcomed those who didn’t quite make it. The Canadian league is not trying to get into future NFL cities either. NFL expansion last occurred in 1976, and they are looking at two more cities for 1995, chosen from the short list of Baltimore, St. Louis, Memphis, Jacksonville (Florida), and Charlotte. The Americans don’t expand very often, so any US city hoping for a franchise is looking at a I Oto-20-year wait if they don’t get one this time around. The CFL hopes to take advantage of the desire for professional football in cities the NFL has not and will not consider, as well as those

Geography

Lesson

So what cities are in the running, or would be good for the CFL! It goes without saying that any of the five possible NFL cities would be good, but here’s my top 20:

I-

San Antonio, Texas -- So, they embarrassed us. So what. It’s not like it hasn’t happened to us before. 936,000 people, the 34,000 seat Alamodome, and the importance of winning Texas over to the CFL make San Antonio a great market. They were almost in last year, so they should have an inside track on getting in again. They had teams in the USFL (Gunslingers) and the WLAF (Riders). 2. reject with Have

Baltimore, Maryland -- A possible NFL city of 736,000 in a high density market area great facilities. In the USFL with the Stars. expressed CFL interest.

3. Memphis, Tennessee -- Another NFL wanna-be that was in the USFL (Showboats). They’ve got 6 10,000 people and a stadium. 4. St. Louis, Missouri -- Their NFL team moved to Phoenix when they weren’t supported in St. Louis, but they’re trying for another one. 397,000 people and a stadium are there, but their desire for the CFL is in question. 5. San Jose, California -- A great rival for Sacramento in a crucial market area. 782,000 in San Jose, with another four million nearby in the Bay area. Might be too close to San Francisco for Larry Smith though.

and no professional sports, in a neglected area that would embrace a football team. Good especially -if San Antonio and other area cities get teams in the CFL. I 3. Orlando, Florida -- Have expressed interest in the CFL. If the Disney Corporation, under Bruce McNall’s friend Michael Eisner, would come on board, there would be solid financial backing and ownership, the best in marketing and advertising, and a reprehensible name(eg. Mighty Ducks). Orlando is small (I 65,000). but in a hightraffic area guaranteeing massive exposure, near to other major centres, and with great TV potential. The Thunder of the WLAF and Renegades of the USFL played here out of the 70,000 seat Florida Citrus Bowl.

SC cities -- subm Wichita, Kansas; Providence, Rhode Island; Salt Lake City, Utah; Colorado Springs. Colorado; Austin, Texas; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Tucson, Arizona; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Jackson, Mississippi; Des Moines, Iowa; and Fresno. California. Getting into New York, Los Angeles, Detroit (Windsor!), and Chicago would be great, but might be too much to ask for.

Marketing Also Important The CFL also has to consider many other points if they want to sell the game in the United States and Canada: marketing has primacy In this field. CFL sports merchandise is hard to find, and is generally of poor quality, although I’ve seen some lately in the bookstore. It doesn’t help that the CFL has boring designs and logos. The CBC must be stopped from allowing their announcers to giggle into their hands and ask Americans if they know what GST is. Do the BBC come here and ask us if we know what VAT is? Of course not. It’s puerile. Grow upThe CBC needs dynamic announcers who can make the game exciting and don’t talk crap through good plays. Legislation must be passed so that only one team can be called Rough Riders. My vote goes to Saskatchewan, since Ottawa had it first (the guys who ride the logs down the Ottawa River) but dropped it to be called the Senators for a couple of years. Saskatchewan picked it up (the guys who break wild horses), but Ottawa decided they wanted it back after Saskatchewan had it. Tough luck, Ottawa. You gave it up, so you can’t have it back, Finally, the Canadian content rule should be scrapped. Larry Smith and I both think it’s protectionist, narrow-minded, and outdated. So there. Now if only we could get some of the people who scream against US expansion and all the things in this article to the games. If you don’t support it, then shut up!

CFL sports merchandise needs big improvement.

14. Louisville, Kentucky -- 269,000 and a good rival city for Memphis (or Nashville). Near to Lexington and Cincinnati, and a great way to cover the east-central US. 15. Honolulu, Hawaii -- Rumoured to be a contender. Travel costs prohibitive, distance awful, but imagine the press! They’ve got the facilities, hosting the yearly NFL pro-bowl, and teams would love going on road trips there. Lots of traffic and tourists guarantee exposure, and the CFL could really cash in on tour packages. 365,000 full time residents there. 16. El Paso, Texas -- The forgotten corner of Texas. 5 I 5,000 in El Paso, but another half million are right across the border in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. The Spanish-American market is an important market to crack for exposure and support. A good rival for San Antonio, Albuquerque, l-as Vegas, or any team in the general area. 17.

Murray Brooker, Ken Brown, Roger Downer, Dave Harris, Mark Harper, Derek Humphreys, George Tuck, and Phil White. Dave Harris, George Tuck, and Murray Brooker were the founding members of the club and launched the club in the fall of I 968. The first season was mainly an exhibition one but, in their first year in the OQAA the next season, the club made it all the way to the semi-finals. This side set a precedent for the success of the club over the next 25 years thanks to the enthusiasm and hard work of the men responsible for the existence of the UWRFC. Ken Brown was honoured for ongoing efforts with regards to Warrior Alumni. He writes a regularly distributed Old Boys newsletter that is sent to alumni of UW’s rugby club. It is due in large part to Brown that every year the success of the Alumni weekend grows year by year. Roger Downer is a long-time supporter of and advisor to the Rugby Club. He aIso participated in a coaching

role for the team from I969 to 1977. Mark Harper was an outstanding coach for the Waterloo Warriors for the I984 and I985 seasons. He coached the club to a semifinal berth in his first season and to the championship the following season, the same season in which he was rewarded with an OUAA coat h of the year award for his efforts. Phil White was a member of the 1977 championship team ant! coached the Warriors to a championship in 1983. He is presently head coach ofthe I992 OUAA champion McMaster Marauders. Derek Humphreys is the person most responsible for the success of Waterloo rugby in its 25 years. He has been involved with the club, either as a player or as a coach, for the team’s entire history. He was head coach for ten years from 1973 to I983 and in those ten years led the Warriors to three championship finals, two of which they won, as well as coaching them to two undefeated seasons. He continues to be involved with the coaching of Warrior Rugby and his

enthusiasm and commitment is second to none. The evening was agreat success as new players had an opportunity to meet and speak to former members of the club and to learn some of the proud tradition that has gone into making the UWRFC the success that is. Next on the calendar of Alumni weekend events was the annual Alumni Rugby match. This match is traditionally used by the Warrior coaches to see some of the new players in action in a real game situation. The Alumni provide the always spirited and very entertaining opposition, running the ball at every opportunity and stretching out the Warrior defence. This year, like last year, saw the alumni win a close, high-scoring, and vet-y entertaining game, this year by the score of 39-27. Having had only four days to practice thus far this season, the Warriors were nonetheless very impressive. Newcomers Adam Donald and Fenton Travers were standouts as was second-year prop Dale Finley, Scoring tries for the Warriors were fourth-year veteran speedster josh Windsor with two and the abovementioned Adam Donald and Fenton Travers with one apiece. Simon Lewis added eight points via one conversion and to penatties. Thegame highlighted the strengths and weaknesses of the Warriors and with a week of practice to go before the season opener against the Purple Satan in London on Saturday, September I8 (tomorrow), as head coach Fraser Cattel said, “we have our work cut out for us.” Hopefully all the wrinkles will be able to be worked out duringthe week of practice.

line. First, he threw a pair of 12-yard passes to wideout Adrian Thorne and a I7-yarder to split-end Ryan Dolby. But a crackback penalty stalled that drive. Throughout the second half, whatever offensive momentum UW could muster was snuffed out by penalties and other mental errors. The Blues had similar problems, committing I 3 penalties for I26 yards. Combining a pounding running game with the occasional long bomb, the Blues moved the ball easily in the second half against a tired UW defence. But coach Knight refused to use fatigue as an excuse for the defence’s second-half shortcomings, “The defence was a bit desperate in the second half,” Knight said. “They were taking chances to try to make some big plays. But when you take a big chance in one direction. usuallv it costs you a big play in the other diiection.

carries for 20 yards. Thorne led the Warriors in receiving with four catches for 43 yards.

He was also Waterloo’s primary kick returner, averaging I5 yards per return on five runbacks. Gord Fawcett caught three balls for 25 yards and Dolby had 2 catches for 27 yards. Despite a couple of terrible snaps, Guenther performed well in his punting role, averaging 36 yards on ten punts. The Warriors totalled 224 yards on offence, scant but an improvement on I77 yards in an I I-I exhibition win over Concordia on the previous weekend. Toronto came up with 339 yards of offence, almost evenly balanced between rushing and passing. U. of T. pivot Mario Sturino used the big play to kill the Warrior defence, totalling I77 yards passing on only IOof-23 passing. He threw one touchdown and was not intercepted. In fact, Toronto didn’t commit any turnovers. But the big offensive story for the Blues was all-star running back David Richer who pounded the Warriors into submission in the second half, finishing with 103 yards on 22 carries. Mitchell broke a couple of long runs on reverses totalling 44 yards and caught four passes for 58 yards, while

The Ontario Universities Athletic Association’s efforts to raise its profile are continuing this year with last week’s unveiling of an OUAA Football Legends Hall of Fame. At a press conference at Toronto’s SkyDome on September 8, University of Waterloo athletics director Wally Delahey announced the hall’s first five inductees, including Russ Jackson, who was a star quarterback with McMaster University before leading the Ottawa Rough Riders to three Grey Cups in the Canadian Football League. Nike Eben, Gino Fracas, Ron Stewart, and Frank Tindall were the other four inductees. TindalI was inducted in the builder category, R u s s Jackson led McMaster to an Ontario Intercollegiate Conference title in 1957 and ‘58. He wasa threetime winner of the Schenley Award as the CFL’s outstanding player and was a four-time winner of the most outstanding Canadian player award. McMaster inducted Jackson into their hall of fame in I984 and, in 1986, the CIAU instituted an award in his name for the best football player who combines skill, citizenship, and academic achievement. Mike Eben played wide receiver for the University of Toronto Varsity Blues from I964 to _ I967 and was a league all-star in all four years and an all-Canadian in his final three years. He was the inaugural winner of the Hec Crighton Trophy as the outstanding player in Canada in 1967 and scored the winning touchdown in the first Vanier Cup game in 1965. He

tourney

went on to play for ten years in the CFL, mostly with the Toronto Argonauts. Gino fracas played fullback and linebacker for the Western Mustangs between 195 I and 1954, helping them to two Yates Cup titles. He was a three-time all-star and the ‘Stangs’ most valuable player in 1954. After an eight-year career in the CFL, he returned to university coaching with the University of Alberta and the University of Windsor. Ron Stewart was a running back for the Queen’s Golden Gaels from I953 to 1957, when they won two Yates Cups. He was an all-star four times and is still fifth in career touchdowns with 29. After graduating he joined Russ Jackson on the great Ottawa Rough Rider team of the 1960s. Frank Tindall coached the Queen’s Golden Gaels for 29 years, from I948 to 1975. During that time, the

The Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union championshipvanier Cupgame will be held there, on November 20. So will the Churchill Bowl national semi-final, on November 13. But, because of a scheduling conflict at SkyDome on November 6, the OUAA title Yates Cup game, held there last year, will go back to the home field of the team with the best league record. Instead, the two OUAA semi-finals will be played at SkyDome on October 30 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.

ing new album In On The Kill Taker, with stand-outs being “Facet Squared,” “Public Witness Program,” “Smallpox Champion,” and “instrument.” 1suppose it’s just fantasy, but with the barest minimum of lighting, the small stage, and the hall’s low ceiling imposed upon them, I couldn’t help but imagine every once in a while that the show was taking place right in the intimacy of my own basement. At least, that is, until the crowd’s spine-crushing pincer movements quickly reminded me otherwise. After a solid eighty minutes-plus of cranium-pulverizing, break-neck cerebral punk, the quartet peacefully exited before returning for a generous and well-earned encore. Encores are, for the most part, usually masturbatory conceits at even the best a . a c .. ot trmes, but bugazl’s are entirely justifiable as poignant opportunities to segue into a different gear. Whereas earlier in the evening a song like “Great Cop” could’ve slipped easily into MacKaye’s old Minor Threat arsenal, Fugazi’s twenty-five minute encore set comprised exclusively instrumentals and displayed precisely how far-reaching, complex and marvelously developed their sound and ideas have grown. Concluding with a tender “Sweet And Low,” MacKaye then gently thanked the audience, took a bow, and bid a fond adieu. Minor hearing loss forgiven, it was

Fisher staff

Fugazi is a band that oozes credibility, the so-called “band that refuses to se&out.” A genuine rarity in the world of rock and roll, they’re the band that swore to rlever let success go to its head when things got good, and actually kept its word. The details are by now legendary: ownership and control of their own record label, the extraordinarily low priced albums and concert tix, and a revulsion of publicity. None of this, of course, would mean sweet dick in a critical capacity unless the actual music Fugazi played was worth caring about. And without a doubt, Fugazi’s music is as bl Ahis important as any gets. Born from the ashes of the seminal Washington, D-C., hard-core godfathers Minor Threat and Rites Of Spring, Fugazi’s sound comes off as an experimental amalgam of those earlier bands, Sonic Youth, NoMeansNo, and tatter-era King Crimson, but they’re like no other. The low-brow Fugazi roadshow steamed through southern Ontario last week and stopped in at the converted cafeteria known as the University of Cuelph’s Peter Clark Hall. following openers Burn 5 I, from Guelph, and Dischord labetmates ShudderTo Think, Fugazi quietly hit the stage to a crowd

that had been softening themselves up with some seriously hard body-slamming. Battlescars notwithstanding, the crowd was ready for far worse. Thankfully, leader tan Ma&aye served immediate notice that he wasn’t exactly prepared to tolerate any of the crowd-surfing bullshit one preferably associates with (and would typically keep to), say, a Pearl Jam show. “Be assuredthatifyou behave likeanasshole I will fucking call you on it,” said he. Then the real action commenced, with MacKaye and his perfect complement, fellow guitarist and vocalist Guy

Picciotto, bookending themselves into the most ferociously intense guitar duo imaginable. In defiant contrast to those in front of them on the other hand, the rhythm section of drummer Brendan Canty and bassist Joe latly kept a strangely perfect balance. Lally in particular played his instrument in such a tight, close-eyed, Zen-like meditative repose as to render an impression of complete indifference to all the chaos about him. With their repertoire covering an extensive selection of career material, Fugari especially showcased their amaz-

The crowd obligingly parted, and he landed with a solid thump that could be heard even over the band as his back, his head, and (of course) his Dot’s hit the floor of Fed Hall. This is Sloan, 1993; nearly Canadian punk rock superstars and apparently worth serious injury. Their show at Fed Hall, although not sold out and lacking the youthful enthusiasm of last year’s Bombshelter show, will at least build up their reputation as both kick-ass rockers and the cutest band in Canada.. They’re just so damn CHARMING!!

Sloan’s album Smeared, but they also managed to throw in a few numbers, from their Peppermint EP as well as the Wesr Coast compilation Never Mind the Moliuscs. “500 Up,” “Median Strip,” and “I am the Cancer” were all included, although in slightly subdued form as compared to their aforementioned Bomber show. Fed Hall is basically too big a venue for smaller bands

such as Sloan or hHead. With only four members taking up a stage as big as the Concert Hall, there’s a distinct lack of intimacy that hurts them. Nonetheless, the band really started to pick up with the bri tiiant “Pretty Voice” from the Peppermint EP, then “Sugartune” and their big rock’n’rotl smash hit “Underwhelmed.” It took a whiJe, but the band finally managed to capture the fun-loving energy that makes them so damn charming. They’re the cutest boys in rawk and worthy of all the attention being paid to them.

Urge Overkill lee’s Poke, Toronto September 7, I993 by Derek Weiler Imprint shin The four members of Urge Overkill stride out onto the stage at Lee’s for their first encore. They are ail shirtless. So is the whacked-out guy who stands at the edge of the dance floor, sweating, swaying, and -- I wouldn’t swear to this, but I’m pretty sure-- waving a lighter. Nearby, there’s another guy in sunglasses and -- I kid you not -- a fur coat. The band bursts into “Sister Havana,” thecrackerjacksinglefrom their latest LP Smmtion, and the crowd, as they say, goes nuts. How rock ‘n’ roll can you get? With their new album, Urge Overkill are riding the cusp of a newfound popularity. What with the recent commercial trends away from dance-pop and toward more traditionally rockist sounds, the time is right for UO’s ’70s AOR redux. Thankfully, though, this group has made ’70s revivalism impossibly fun, and the tunes on Soturotion are among the best and most moving of the genre. Live, this has all the feel of an event. Lee’s is packed and sweaty, and the UrEesters are wearinn matchinn vests you’ll be a womyn soon. and UO medallions (t&e base tzo has Sister Havana, apparently added a touring bassist who admirably completes their suave look). The crowd One unfortunate thing is that the sound is knows all the new songs, and is a little foggy on simply not quite up to snuff. Too many bands are older ones like ‘9 I ‘S “The Candidate” (which also content to let volume substitute for good, crisp happens to be easily the best performance of the sound, but I’m surprised to see Urge Overkill -night). whose disdain for most of what passes as “aggresIn short, UO have, if not arrived, at least sive” these days is well-known -- do the same. gotten a good start on the journey toward NirAnyway, they do most of the Satu~~tion album, vana-Ii ke success. a couple CUESfrom last year’s Stull EP, and the

s and occasional oldertune like “Ticket to 1-A.” The crowd eats it up, moshing happily and practically begging for two encores. (As frontman Nash Kato says, Toronto is one rock ‘n’ roil town.) Poor sound aside, the band is in fine form indeed. Nash’s and King Roeser’s vocals (the two sing together on many cuts) are uniquely weltsuited to each other, and their riffery is sublime. Highlights include the above-mentioned “Sister Havana” and “The Candidate,” as well as “Positive Bleeding” and the I wonderful set closer, a take on Hot Chocolate’s clasic sob story “Emma.” (For those who care, Urge have also covered that song on their ‘9 I LP The Supersonic Storybook.) So a decent set from the headliners, but the opening act was another beast entirely. Now, I’m as big a fan of this whole do-it-yourselfpunkethic as the next guy, but let’s face ir, some bands are simply so inept and atrocious that they should forthwith be driven back to the garage from whence they came. Cleveland’s Viviens are just such a band. They display almost no taient whatsoever, and worse, are cursed with a hopelessly neurotic and annoying frontperson. I don’t like to come down overly hard on starting-out bands, but if there was ever a band who should go no further, this one is it.

Why-oh-why did Matt Johnson decide that it was better to cancel the second half of his North American tour (which would have found him at Fed Hall in August) and instead agree to open for Depeche Mode on their North American tour? Sure he’s playing in front of ten thousand people a night, but very few of them are in any way interested or understand what he is doing with his music, and certainly he’d get slim and few converts from the hordes of screaming teenage girls wanting to see David Gahan’s butt.

With nary a word to the still-filling future NH1 hockey rink, he went right into *‘Dogs of Lust,” the lead-off single and best song from his latest release Dusk, followed by two more from the latest al bum. Even if Johnson tries to convince people that The The is a complete band, most people will always see it as beginning and ending with him. This night he failed to mention who was on stage with him but I believe it was pretty much the same contingent which accompanied him on Dusk with the notable exception of Johnny Marr (exSmiths guitarist) who couldn’t go on this tour and was replaced by someone with an eerie physical resemblance to him. Rounding out the band was a guy whose sole purpose was to fill in the harmonica parts left vacant by Mat-r, and this guy was a great choice. He was just wailing away on that harp. Wearing a dark outfit consisting of a dress jacket and pants, looking like a young Harvey Keitel he was certainly the most exciting person on stage. Not that this is a digagainstfohnson who goes out there and plays his songs well, but it just wouldn’t be his style to start jumping on the speakers. The sound quality on this night was superb with a perfect mix of instruments and vocal except for maybe the guitarist’s mike which would boom over everything else when he sang back up. Luckily this was not too often. Unfortunately, most of the audience seemed disinterested in the stage show preferring to talk among themselves, probably abbut the fantastic DM shirts they just blew $35 apiece on. After the songs from Dusk, Johnson took the crowd on a journey through his career starting with “Uncertain Smile” and “This is the Day” from Soul Mining, progressing to the title track from Infected, and rounding off with a trio of songs from his underrated Mind Bomb album, including “Armageddon Days are Here Again” which is as topical today as it was 5 years ago when he wrote it. Then to my great despair, The The’s 45 minutes in the spotlight were -7-1

Depeche Mode’s David Guhan (above) and his fellow New Romantic poseurs were no match for the brilliance of The The’s Matt Johnson (pi&red Iem. over even with some members of the crowd genuinely wanting an encore (everybody over the age of seventeen). After the carefully planned I5 minute break, the lights went down again and I realized why I didn’t want to be there. If there is a more irrititing sound than five thousand teenage girls screaming in unison, then it is truly the sound which is played to the souls being tortured in hell.

nothing but INXS videos as his moves perfectly mimic those of Michael Hutchence as well as his physical appearance. Meanwhile, Martin Gore’s silver overalls made me wonder just what he’s thinking when he looks in the mirror (something like “man these silver overalls are COOL”). I have to admit that the stage show was interesting with about IO video screens and the fully automatic drum set which was whirled out in a vain attempt to make it. seem as though . real humans were playing on stage. However I just couldn’t shake the feeling that I was babysitting and so felt compelled to leave early. I thought maybe I would see MattJohnson on the way out as well, but realizing that his set was over an hour before, Johnson was probably long gone, looking for something fun to do for the rest of the night.

Skydigging The Skydiggers: The Imprint Interview

Seglenieks stciiff

The Skydiggers play Fed Hall tonight in support of the their third release entitledjust Over this Mountain, and it promises to be a great show. (If you go be sure to check out Josh’s WOfkbOOts.) Peter Cash of the Skydiggers was kind enough to do an interview earlier this week:

There was less time between just Over this Mountuin and Restress than between your r first two albums. This was partly because in between the first two your record company went out of business, but do you think you’re now getting more productive putting rem teases out? I think for this one we certainly didn’t want to wait as long as the ftrst and the second. If we weren’t I ready to do it as quickly as we did, we wouldn’t have. We had all these songs ready to record while we were touring for the second record and there seemed no point in waiting. It seemed like we made a plan, we made it pretty quickly and everything has happened like we Our had planned so far.

at of it.

This album seems to have been very complicated to record: Bedtracks in Toronto in April, overdubs in Hamilton in June, mixed in Toronto in July, and mastered in Montreal in July. Is this normal proceedure? Its not as complicated as it seems. For the bedtracks we really wanted to work with Michael Philip Wojewoda, plus we recorded those up at Phase One where we got a really good drum and bass sound, and we thought it was better to do those there instead of in liamilton. We spent 8 days there doing the bedtracks, then took May off. Every-

do and you don’t get as much chance to write. But t don’t think it has changed over the years. I think the band thinks that in this record we have wrapped up the five years of the band, and it’s a cross between the first two records. For what I write about, I feel a chapter is over. I would really like to take a few more chances and write about things I haven’t ever written about, but that might be difficult as I’m not sure what I want to write about right now. It seems tike for the three records there are themes that I write about, and they may not change for the next record, but hopefully I can present them in a different way.

man,

Right. “80 Hours” is a song that we’ve been playing forever -- ever since the band started. For me personalty, the song “She Comes Into the Room” was one I’d written before I even met Josh and Andy. What happened is that we got good versions of these songs and didn’t worry about the fact that they were written a long time ago. Certainly for that song, we’d played it off and on over the years. It seemed to come together while we were recording this record and we all

Edgewater Hotel, Toronto September 15, 1993

tf New York City’s Royal Trux suffers a junkies notoriety, then this past Wednesday night’s performance in the cavernous Edgewater Hotel basement probably won’t go very far in dispelling it. It wasn’t as if they were rendered incapable of performing or anything -- far from it as a matter of fact -- but one couldn’t help noticing their behaviour as being somewhat a little, welt, peculiar. The Royal Trux in perforkante are a four-piece, but history seems to suggest they’re really a duo in the persons of lead singer jennifer Herrema and ex-Pussy Galore guitarist Nei t Hageriy. They’re often likened to Pavement, but they’ve actually been “Ah’m searching for my mainline...” around a fair while longer and .^ sound, for comparisons sake, more principal focal’ point of the band. She’s like a collision between Exile-era Rolltall and gangly, and with a poodle hairing Stones, Captain Beefheart and Dando which prevents one from ever seeiel Johnson. They’ve released four aling her eyes (let alone the colour of bums, the most current being the highly them) she comes off as a female Joey acclaimed Cats and Dogs. Ramone. But she never gets excited or Without a doubt, Herrema is the

even really moves. When she does, it’s usually in an exaggeratedly slow and deliberate motion of lighting a menthol cigarette (she’s a chain) or slurping her beer. I don’t believe she’d ever be capable of dancing, should the desire ever strike her, and her voice comes across in bursts of Daisy Chainsaw-ish purrs and growls. Hagerty, for his part, plays his -guitar-while seated and toys ardund with an effects board. Occasionally he’ll be heard gently barking directions to the remainder of the quartet, they being a drummer and percussionist, but he’s mostly busy creating a tremendous foun‘dation that’s as fragite as one can get without the whole artiface collapsing. It all seems impossibly confusing, but it works. Mysteriousiy... much like the band themselves. Their record company bio’s claim they’re twenty-four years old, but unless the drugs have put some serious miles on them, you’d easily mistake them for at least a decade older. And as for the music isself, it also seems a wee bit COO wise and surreal for its age. Either we’re getting fed a total bill of goods here, or the Royal Trux are the Better Living Through Chemistry’s newest poster children.

Not content to emerge as simply one of a bunch of Britain’s finest new bands, Liverpool’s Boo Radleys are now quite rightly staking their claim as one of the greatest bands anywhere. Their highly anticipated sophomore full-lengther, Giant Steps, is another cracker that expands upon their brilliant debut Everything’s Alright Forever and smartly follows-up in the direction suggested by last year’s tremendous Lt~zarus EP. Whereas their debut seemed an homage stylistically and in name to Love’s seminal Forever Changes, likewise does Giant Steps to tenor-sax genius John Coltrane’s legendary piece of the same name. Not that Giant Steps should be mistaken for jan-fusion or anything, but the Coltrane influence is gently evident in the terrific horn and string arrangements of “Butterfly

McQueen,” ‘*Thinking Of Ways,” and the Byrds-ish “Wish I Was Skinny.” (Byrds guitarist Roger McGuinn was a major Coltrane disciple.) As with all of their incredibly prodigious prior m.aterial, (counting the new album they’ve now released two double-length LPs and six four-song EPs in the past three years), Giant Steps continues with. the Boo Radteys’ characteristic alternating of challenging rockers and reflective Floydian head pieces. Some of the edge from their earlier material has been taken off, but this is now compensated by more mature and disciplined songwriting. “Barney (...And Me),” “Take The Time Around,” “Rodney King (Song For Lenny Bruce),” a re-mixed “Lazarus,” and the aforementioned “Wish I Was Skinny” are all particular revelations. Although there remains a common misconception that the Boo Radleys are yet another in a faceless lot ofgeneric “shoe-gazers,” they’re every bit as original and out-there as Ameriw can counterparts Mercury Rev. Like them, the Boo Radleys rarely attempt to fake their way through anything. They’ll borrow and acknowledge the ideas of others who came before them at will, but they’re still ingenious and talented enough to refine those ideas into a wholly unique vision that’s singularly theirs. Giant Steps, as such, is another rewarding gem from a band that deserves your attention.

Recently, hip hop culture seems to have discovered its roots in ’50s jazz; Billie Holiday, Miles Davis and John Coltrane have been cited as musical godparents just as much as RunDMC or Grandmaster Flash. So the time is right for an album that fully explores the possibilities and complexities of both these genres. At the moment,~azzmatazz seems to be the likeliest candidate for that album. Guru, the main man behind rappers Gang Starr, has assembled a host of jazz artists to back him up, including Courtney Pine, Branford Marsalis and, most often, vibesman Roy Ayers. Guru’s also helped out by a couple guest vocalists: Carteen Anderson (Soul II Soul) and N’dea Davenport. At times, Guru’s ambition gets to be a bit weighty-- the album’s trumpeting subtitle “An experimental fusion of hip-hop and jazz” and the old style covir design are OK, but the music history cuts “Introduction” and “Respectful Dedications” seem to belong more in a classroom than on a record. But that’s forgiveable too; it’s probably even nwewty. After all, the whole purpose of this project is to connect young hiphoppers with their musical roots, so 1 suppose some instruction is inevitable. As for the music, song titles like

Guru has also managed to strike a likeable balance between elaborate instrumentation and poppy, vocal-based material. (It should be noted too that Guru, Anderson and Davenport all have superb throaty voices, with entrancing phrasing.) What I’d like to see next time is even more of a “fusion” between hip-hop and jazz. Despite its ambitions, this release still sounds essentially like a hiphop record that flirts with jazz. Even more of a jazz influence would be very welcome next time. In the meanShe’s a Brand New.

Maybe it was a bit egotistical for Buckwheat Zydeco to call this compilation The Essential Zydeco Collection. but I guess if any one person has the right to do so would be the protege of the father of Zydeco, Clifton Chenier. Stanley Dural Jr. (aka Buckwheat) started out playing soul and R&B forming a fifteen piece funk outfit, Buckwheat and the Hitchhikers. He joined Chenier in the mid-70s as a keyboardist and quickly became very interested in the zydeco sound, forming Buckwheat Zydeco in 1979. Menagerie is a collection of the work of Stanley Dural Jr. after he signed a record deal with Island Records in 1987. This is the only disappointing aspect of this compilation as it would have been nice to hear what his sound

was like before the widely available three records on Island. In fact, putting out a best of album after only three albums is worthy of Morrissey and suggests to me that perhaps Island is dropping Buckwheat and this may be their last chance to get any money from his product. Even Menagerie only has two songs from Buckwheat’s fine debut On u Night Like This. The rest are a collection from his two more recent releases, selections which aren’t exactly the ones I would chose to put on a compilation, but fine songs nonetheless. Songs from Menagerie like “Ma ‘Tit Fille,” “Where There’s Smoke There’s Fire,” and “Taking it Home” are some of the best examples of accordion zydeco around. There are FJVO interesting covers, one being Clifton Chenier’s”Hot Tamale Baby” the other Hank Williams Senior’s “Hey, Good Lookin”’ with single, neatand slim country sensation Dwight Yoakam on lead vocals. If you are only going to own one Buckwheat Zydeco album of course it should be this one, and if you are only going to own one Zydeco album this one is also a good choice with I I foot tapping, exuberanf accordion-powered songs which serve as a great introduction to this type of music.

not society, but the individual. As techno-industrio-Newseat is Dionysian noise withoutaccepted structure, so too is postmodern morality action without conventionality. Yet, in nodding toward Nietzche’s most famous work, Sheep on Drugs seem to have ignored his unfinished and lesser read”The Will to Power”wherein he exerts man “of what is-great one must either be silent or speak with greatness.” Sheep on Drugs ought to have remained silent; they approach this Dionysian culture as boldly as Tarzan making sure that the path was clear before he leapt. Various vocals espousing motorcycles, totalitarianism, the death of God (and the Buddha), Warhol, 1.D. Salinger, Jay Plclnerny, death, drugs, and sex all provide nothing more than a ticket of admission to the namecheck/street cred hall of fame. Lame samples and loud guitars don’t help much either. lnstaid of eschewing conventionality, Sheep on Drugs embrace it, trying desperately to remain within what they most conceive as the boundary of techno. There is simply nothing original on this disc, nor any Nietzchean bold sin. In fact, the whole thing sounds like a do-it-yourself package, except without the JAMS/KLF’s sense of humour. All you need to make this album is a Ministry record for the guitars and obligatory drill noises, plus a large assortment of any currently popular house beats from Euro-trash clubs. Mix ‘em together and you get bovine dung, which is to say Sheep on Drugs.

“Man must become better and more evil - so do 1teach. The evilest is necessary for the Superman’s best.” F. Nietzche, Also Sproch ZfiffUthUStfU. From their opening track “Uberman” onwards, Sheep on Drugs provide a halting soundtrack to Nietzche’s project of the overcoming and transvaluation of morality. Heavy and hypnotic techno-industrial grooves ought to be the perfect medium for the band’s gospel of the Uberman. The Uberman -- the product of Nietzche’s syphallitic imagination - is the last man, the strong man, the Superman who has the power to do as he wills. All conventionality and thus all morality goes for naught in his wake; such pious, false and limiting

things are for the weak Hence, the appropriateness of the post-modern techno-industrial approach to music: a deconstruction and reconstruction, following no laws except that of Dionysian abandon. The result ought to be music that screams to you in its total obviousness, the closest thing possible to phenomenological purity. Like the Bauhaus ihair that demands you acknowledge its function through its sheer seating uncomfortableness, techno-industrial grooves give you music that is so stripped that it, in its nakedness, reveals itself as it truly is: painful and brutal noise. Noise is the basis of all music, just as action is the basis of all morality. The transvaluation of values follows the same pattern -a hermeneutics of dissection and trivialization, followed by a winner take all mentalityfavouring

following is a brief transcript of my thoughts on the tape: Okay, so the first (title) song sucks. No big deal. Happens to the best of them. So the second one’s shit too. I’ll just write “after a disappointing start...” The third is also crap. Better make it “after a very disappointing start...” No, no, change that to “after a fuc king horrible start...” Well, the entire first side was completegarbage. The second couidn’t be worse, right? Oops, I appear to be mistaken: it defines new levels of inane grade-school lyricsand your classic shit brand of crap rock. I don’t know if Drep Purple was under some contractual agreement to make this album, or if they sat around, completely hammered and thought “fuck, guys, we haven’t written a good song in over a decade -- let’s write a whole album in twenty minutes!” Either way, The Battie Rages On... manages to almost ruin their earlier work. There was one song that rose above the rest, I will note, however. Nasty Piece of Work managed to drag itself above the rest of the music to the level of “filler song” for any other group with any talent. But was it just me or was the guitar riff blatantly stolen from one of their more famous mid-70’s tunes? Hmmmm.

True, they’ve had a wee bit of a slump lately (like, oh, for the past ten years or more), but maybe, just maybe, they managed to recapture some of their former glory. They haven’t; the album isn’t even worthy of the term “shit.” I’d popped it into my car’s cassette deck, hoping for a great set of tunes for the drive from Waterloo to Brampton. What I got was a set of abysmal, pointless, cheesy, bad, talentI&, utterly fucking useless bland shit. I was stunned at how heartless Ian Gillan’s vocals were, and the rest of the band sounded almost as competent as my younger brother’s band did when they were fourteen and had just bought their instruments.

The Smashing Pumpkins debut release of two years ago, Gish, is one of the biggest sleeper hits in recent memory. It should have been a massive smash of Nirvana and Pearl Jam proportions, but mystifyingly poor distribution and tack of push from their record company conspired against any such thoughts. ’ Their uniform appeal with the Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, grunge, metalhead, and even punk crowds, however, did the stow-burn and stirred up a tremendous amount of anticipation for their follow-up and newest release Siamese Dream. Fans of the Smashing Pumpkins won’t be disappointed. Leader Billy Corgan might’ve shorn off his locks and old psychedelic duds, but his band’s sound is as good as ever. If they were a bit derivative on Gish (and that’s a mild complaint}, Siamese Dream now presents the Pumpkins sound as wholly theirs, without sacrificing any of the special elements which made Gish so great. Make no mistake, the Smashing Pumpkins have obliterated any ideas of a sophomore jinx.

A popular topic for movies or Twilight Zone episodes has been the thought of old people who are given a new lease on life by&habiting the souls of younger pet-sons and then living out their lives. I suspect this has happened to the members of Vancouver’s DOA as they seem to have had an unearthly influence on Hamilton’s Wet Spots. From Beer to Paternity is the Wet Spot’s first CD release after an independent vinyl offering in I988 with agreat title -- Wuking up with ,.. the Wet Spots. Two songs from the debut album are included on the CD that has the same band line up except for a new drummer. The 15 songs here paint a picture of their lives dealing with women, beer and partying. Some of the more serious ones refer to the environment, excess capitalism, and the cost of being famous. Don’t expect much musical diversity as they know their sound and aren’t afraid to use it for song after song, however there’s a sparseness to the production which gives it an energetic feel. Vocalist Pat Havoc’s grumbty voice comes across well with the rest of the band giving adequate

Doing what they do, because they want to do it, and not because they think that they can make oodles of money, because there just isn’t oodles of money to be made in the non-burgeoning ska market. What a relief it is, then, for a ska fan to actually be able to go into a record store, and see a new album by a new ska band, which doesn’t actually suck The album is rcsplendant with horns, and punching, biting staccato, and very hip riffs. Some of them do get mired in wishy-washy synthesizers, whose sounds could be much better replicated by an old Hammond organ, and VOX guitars. l-lowever, the intentions are obviously sincere, as is the energy, so we forgive them. The best songs on the disk are those songs which just exude that form of bragaddio which is peculiar to ska bands. This form of ego-boosting is best found bn a song cat led “Too Hip To Be Cool.” And it is cool, too, all the way from the sliding trombones, to the moaning bass, and the staccato guitars and drums. So even if it sounds about a decade off, and even if it probably will never hit number one in Billbords charts, it has carved itself a comfortable little niche as being one of the onty authentic ska bands still around,

support. The best song, “Blitzkrieg Potka,” is a sendup of the Ein Prosit theme song and mentions St. Catherines Grammy winning accordion god Walter Ostinack. They also have a good description of the annual fall festival “Lederhosen and ein prosit/Octoberfest and all that bullshit/Do the bird dance then fall down/How I love this Berlin town.” However, the version of the song on Waking Up With ... includes the shooting of the accordion player and makes that version a better song. Unfortunately, only a few of the songs stand out on this album, so unless you really like this style of the music, you’d best stay away.

And here I was thinking that ska was dead. Gone and buried with the demise of the English Beat, and Madness, and Fun Boy Three, about ten years ago. Since then, nearly nothing has been heard from the world of ska, except for an appearance from a scarily aged Madness, at the .Brits awards in 1992, And now, all of a sudden, here comes a band out of New York, who sound just like some of the best ska that ever was. Actually, the Toasters have been around for quite a while but, rka not being an ongoing concern, they haven’t really hit what we’d call a mainstream market. This means that the Toasters are genuine.

Carey, Whitney Houston, RuPaul et al; the whole proud independent singer stems a more than just a littte from Turner. Who cares. The real reason you don’t need to check any of this shit out is that you probably don’t need to hear anymore l%a Turner in your entire life. You’ve already heard these songs, or some of them, and if you feel that you really need to hear some, go talk to your parents. This stuff is readily availabte on AM radio and in many elevators around the world. Life is too short Y&‘ve got movies to see, books to read, books to write, people to see, places to go, things to do. Behind all of this is a backdrop of music; the soundtrack to your life. Why fuck it up with this shit? Do you see how short this review is? I can write a lot if I’m even a little bit interested, but what are you going to say about this sort of everyday boring mundane crap. Come down to Imprint and write, you can pull out a piece of kaka like this every once in a while and do what I’m doing but for the most part you get to write about things that you’re interested in. You know, to tell you the truth, I don’t really care whether you buy this album, or love Tina Turner or whatever, I don’t have to care, I’m a critic, it’s my job to write about rock’n’roll. My audience is just a bunch of fickle musheads, and I can just write whatever I want. But even that gets boring when all you do is Tina Turner. And they- say. we don’t review mainstream stuff.

1 by Sandy Atwal Imprint Stan Anyone stupid enough to buy this deserves what they get. No one at this university except maybe a few professors needs to pay attention to this. Not that I completely hate Tina Turner; I guess her version of “Proud Mary” is pretty cool, but these songs for the soundtrack to her movie are re-recordings of her older stuff. So, you get “What’s Love Got to do with it” (a true piece of shit) next to something like Bryan Adams’ “Why Must We Wait: Until Tonight” (a complete piece of shit) alongside some= thing like “Disco Inferno” (a revolting piece of retro-shit). So the album is pretty eclectic. It’s always interesting to note that for such a large star, she doesn’t really have any songwriting abilities. The only track written 6y her in any capacity is “Nutbush City Limits.” I don’t even remember that one. You see, Tina Turner is probably responsible for a lot of the “music” we get today: Mariah

Harding to Imprint

It’s got nothing to do with the movie. Now that we’ve got that clear, let’s get on with the review, or rather, the shameless plug for one of my favourite bands. First some history. They’re not a new band, only new to North America. They formed in I983 after an intense jam session at the now-banned Stonehenge Free Festival. Their fan base has grown steadily in the decade since then as they’ve gigged incessantly, often for free: the Hawkwind formula for promoting your group. In Britain, they now enjoy a huge following similar in fervor to that of the Grateful Dead. An equally devoted if much smaller following is starting over here. In the process, they released six albums on cassette which were widely pirated with the band’s knowledge, if not with their complete approval. After that, there followed four studio albums on CD, a live CD, and a two-disc retrospective of their cassette releases. And riow their new release,Jurclssic Shift. This is only the second album released on this side of the world. The preceding studio effort bmgeitude was also released domestically to test the water. Their music is almost exclusively instrumental. Recognizable human voices only crop up occasionally. Instrumentation consists mainly of guitars (played by producer and band leader Ed), synthesizers and samples CJoieand Ed), flute (Eoin orJohn), bass (Roly or Zia), drums (Merv), plus an , assortment of other people and instruments that pop in and out on various albums at various times. I’ve been beating around the bush up until now to avoid the present daunting task: describing their music. I’ll cop out and quote the liner notes for the Afierswish retrospective CD, which in turn quotes the British music press which pretty much hits the nail on the head: “a kaleidoscopic extravaganza of space synths, dub reggae beats and echo-boosted psychedelicguitar excursions;” or “a writhing mass of jagged soundscapes

owing as much to fotk reggae, jazz and acid house as it does to rock.” However you describe it, the present reviewer deems it most enjoyable. Tracks have titles like “Agog in the Ether,” “The Domes of G’bal, ” “White Rhino Tea,” or “Shaping the Pelm.” They often top ten minutes in length, which is short compared to the live performances (if anyone makes a mistake they have to repeat it four times to make it sound intentional.) Most songs are probably danceable if you’re into that sort of thing. In fact, for a while HMV had Strangeitude hideously misfiled in the dance music section. Now they’re resting COMfortably in “alternative” where they belong (if they can be said to ‘belong’ anywhere). Will you like it? Everyone I’ve played my discs for has liked them. The music is very accessible. Some people might find some of the songs a bit boring and repetitive. Maybe some of them are boring and repetitive. But most songs kick some serious ass, especially when the guitar kicks into overdrive (like on the new track, “Feng Shui”), This is high-quality stuff. Advocates of the industrial uses of marijuana may be interested to know that the first pressing of the UK release of Jmssic Shifi has all the inserts printed on paper made from 25 per cent hemp, 20 per cent cotton and 55 per cent straw. No trees. But don’t bother smoking the liner notes to enhance the psychedelic effect of the music: the plants used have been bred for higher fibre yield and have only 0.3 per cent THC content. Still 0.3 per cent too much for it to be grown in this country, the environment be damned. What about their name, you ask? Well, apparently they had a spaced-out discussion about imaginary breakfast cereals at the Stonehenge Festival. Names that fell by the wayside include Desmond Whisps, Malcolm Segments,and Gilbert Chunks. Maybe they were indulging in the less legitimate uses of hemp . . .

Warner staff not a big fan of soft pop-rock (I prefer Metallica), but they’re compeie&, and avoid sounding as corny as most groups sound. If you like Bon jovi and/or John Cougar Mel lencamp, you’ll probably like the new Helix album, since it sounds a hell of a lot like Jon Bon and john Cougar got together, wrote some tunes, and got Helix’s Brian Vollmer to sing for them. Some are naturally better than others: Love is u Crazy Game is really as clichkd as the title sounds, but Misery Loves Company is, well, one of those “teen anthems” that sound half decent once or twice, but grow really stale really fast (but it’s better than Love is Q... ). . Overall the album has its merits, but doesn’t exactly stick in your mind as one of those all-time classic albums. It’s not a bad album. It’s just not a Helix album. “Forgettable” says a lot about it.

t don’t know why, but I’ve managed to get ahold of at least a half-dozen new tapes in the past few months, all from groups that really should have quit at least ten years ago. Maybe it’s a new “nineties” thing: groups whose prime was long past feel the need to release more crap just to prove that they really do suck now. Steve Miller, Deep Purple, April Wine... and now Helix has decided to prove their disappearing worth. True, Helix has had a few hits in the past ten years, and their last album (two years ago? More? Less?) had at least one teeny-bopper number one. But the days of Helix producing good, solid rockthat-you-can-sink-your-teeth-into are miles from the new album: Helix has gone I IO% commercial, and I IO% soft. At least they do it fairly well, I suppose. I’m

Neil can do whatever the heck he wants, and fans wiII always somehow tolerate what he does. Perhaps our minds create rationalizations that excuse disappointments in the same way people can justify minor theft from their employer. Of course, Neil’s been playing “unplugged”, as it were, periodically for most of his life, so renditions of “Mr. Soul”, “Pocahontas,” and “From Hank to Hendrix” on this album aren’t much different than the originals. “Like a Hurricane” incorporates a pump organ, however, which is used in such a way that a skeptic might suspect Truns is the name of a virus in Neil’s body that resurfaces every ten or eleven years, causing his

sense of musical composition to become quite warped. This doesn’t hold true for the whole album, as evidenced by a reworking of “Helpless”, where the guitar is dropped entirely in favour of having a richer piano and harmonica responsible for the melody and harmony. The appearance of “Transformer Man” on this compilation is perhaps the biggest surprise, as that is a largely plugged-in song. Unplug the keyboard and vocal distortions and, surprise again, “Transformer Man” becomes a song you can listen to, instead of lunging across the room for the “stop” button. Another subtle difference in the old favourites is Neil’s voice, which has changed with age to become a little less nasal. Intonation at various points seems to be different too, but anyone can get a bit sloppy after perfoming “The Old Laughing Lady” 1,453 times. Unplugged. Who dreamed up that concept in the first place anyhow? Now it has become another bandwagon for anyone with an album or two under their belts to jump on. Let’s keep our eyes peeled for forthcoming “unplugged” compilations by KMFDM- and Public Enemy . . . right. They wouldn’t want to reveal the brilliance of their musicianship by relying on an unplugged guitar for melody - actually, come to think of it, I don’t suppose ‘there’s any melody in the first place. Never mind.

Perhaps it’s the length of the album’s title and the subsequent problems remembering exactly what the hell it is, that has led to this review being submitted well past the assigned deadline. More than likely though, it was the utter confusion that resulted upon first listen. The albu’m’s first three tracks left the listener in some bewilderment as to whether the 24-7 SPY2 album Gumbo Millennium had been mistakenly iqerted into the music player.

Suicidal Tendencies have been around for about ten years, and following their recent hohum Seattlish-sounding the Art off3ebelIion, they’ve decided to re-record and re-release their first self-titled album. There are a lot of good reasons for this: besides the fact that the band is no longer making royalties from that or other albums, it seems I ike their message is stiII not getting heard by either the ignorant, the uninformed, or the fans who just want to mosh and nothing else. A man with a lot to say, lead singer Mike Muir is more than a little pissed-off that people are still writing them off under one heading or another. As one of modern music’s more obnoxious loudmouths, he’s up there with Rollins, Rose, Mustaine, and Phil Anselmo of Pantera. He talks a mile a minute and he’s pretty clear about what he says. In “Institutionatized” (see also Repo Man Soundtrack) he’s pissed-off at his parents and others who want to put him away; “I Shot the Devil” p.o&ed at cultural icons; “Subliminal” p.o.ed at T.V.; “I Want More” p.o.ed at Mcjobs; “I Saw Your Mommy” p.o.ed at your Mommy; “1 Won’t FalI in Love Today” p.o.ed at you; “Suicide’s an alternative/ You’ll be Sorry” p.o.ed at eve’ryone who wants to buy his soul. Preachy? Listening to the music is like antagonizing a pit bull with the guitars to support it, and it’s cool to see 80’s hardcore re-done and sped up, with more spit and stage experience to make it mosh, at non-catalogue prices. This stuff is old (I won’t say “classic”!), but it’s new now. The two songs from the surf-inspired second album aren’t too bad, and the new song “Don’t Give Me Your Nothing” grooves. The album has sheer sonic assault and it really digs into those afternoons when you want to destroy the bureaucracy that renders you mediocre and “Nevermind” just don’t do it no more, so turn it one louder. First sounds are what might be Muir having a conniption and it takes off from there. The stories on “You’ll be Sorry” and “Institutionalized” are pretty hilarious, and make me glad that I didn’t miss it the second time around either.

power chords. They have seized their newfound knowledge and, instead of concealing their abilities, show them off upfront at the start of the album. “Swim,” an ode to the enjoyment of crowd surfing, “Servitude,” and “Black Flowers” are all driven by heavy guitar work not usually associated with Fishbone. It’s not until the fourth track, **Unyielding Conditioning,” that the joyful bouncy ska expected from Fishbone enters the picture. Other ska tunes include the horn-laden “They All Have Abandoned Their Hopes”, “Lemon Meringue”, and “Nutt Megalomaniac.” Don’t get the impression that the harder tunes are bad. They are quite good. It just takes time to open one’s mind to accept the reality that it’s Fishbone doing the rocking. Black guys with guitars, what a novel concept Other songs on the album range from “Drunk Skizo”, a hyperactive and chaotic rampage, to “Properties Of Propaganda”, a Parliament Funkadelic-like romp. In interviews, the members of Fishbone have spoken of not writing songs specifically inspired by the LA. uprising, because they have always sung about the difficulties and injustices that result from growing up Black in the inner city. On this release there is no exception. “No Fear” speaks of “People dying and crying. The sound of shattered dreams. Drowning the voice of the future with negativity.” “Unyielding Conditioning” - “I have heard of ways where people topple all injustice. No one lives their lives on bended knees. And all bigotry is like a disease drowned in the sea.” “The Warmth Of Your Breath’ -- You do not own my mind, nor my Black behind. I will not do the things that you say.” Despite being a somewhat disjointed album, this release does showcase Fishbone’s highlights and will propel (has propelled?} them to greater recognition and acceptance.

Plain or Steel Toe

by Sandy Atwal Imprint stag They’re a power-pop trio from Minneapolis. On this scanty description it’s been commonplace to find Arcwelder compared to Husker Du, despite the lack of common ground between the two bands. In spite of their differences, Arcwelder can still claim to be pa” of the musical evolutionary process of that city via the aforementioned Huskers, Soul Asylum and The Replacements. After hearingtheir pre-album single “Raleigh” 1 was amazed to find little or no mention of the band other than in the articles clipped for the press release. Even with a relatively extensive back-catalogue, the fame and fortune the band so richly deserves seems to elude them. It’s not that Arcwelder are doing anything terribly new, they’re just doing it extremely well, a skill that seems to elude so many bands nowadays. Their third album Pull demonstrates an untapped resource that deserves just as much exposure as any of the other “alternative” bands featured in the music papers. Although not, as I mentioned, new, they are exciting and it’s a hair’s breadth that separates them from the popularity of a Dinosaur Jr. or a Sugar. The second track “What did you call it that for?” demonstrates the band’s ability to meld original riffs, catchy lyrics and a solid bass/drum backbone. It’s the band’s ingenuity that is most appealing. While some songs possess lunging powerchords that go for the throat and drawblood, some brilliantly melodic songs are as gentle as the breeze of a dove’s wings. By building upon rather than stealing from rock’s great guitar book, they manage to style a tense, aggressive tour de force, showing that in a time-when techno and industrial music are all the rave, the guitar still matters, and that counts. As an afterthought, one oddity in the band is one

Rochester...

Wide Sargasso Sea directed by john Duigun

by Peter special

H6iich to Inpint

The novel Wide Sur~asso Sect. the last novel by Jean Rhys, Gas published in the late Sixties and serves both as a prequel tojane Eyre and a defence of the character of the dour romantic hero Mr. Rochester’s first wife. She is the mad woman Bertha from the West Indies, who Rhys considered more of a sym.pathetic character than the bland, boringjane. Being from the Caribbean herself, one can understand her defiante of traditional Old World stereotypes about the New World. While the concept of a prequel might seem redundant (see David Lynch’s Fire Walk Wti Me) this one successfully tells the story of-the beautiful colonial heirress and her arranged marriage to the insecure but adventurous Mr. Rochester in the unkempt Caribbean world that is a mesh of Europe, Africe, America, slave liberation, black magic, madness, and sex. Victorian sensibilities are expanded upon with gothic hormones. The movie Wide- Sargasso SCO doesn’t differ much from the novel in the sense that it describes the depressing life of abandoned colonial families in the 19th century, the loss of power, and the days of imperial trade powered

a

by slaves from Africa. What is left is mouldy estates, bored servants, rumours, fronts, fading reputations, dissolution, alcoholism, and madness. Karina Lombard plays the character of Antoinette as she should be: exotic, sensuous. Caiun. and with more than a bit of creepike&. Deep sexy stares leave us wondering how insane she really is, and how much of her appeal lies with the closeness she really is to madness and anarchy: in her life, her situation, in the contempt that she has from both locals and colonials, her family’s sickness, her confidantes (the sinister nurse and part-time witch Christophine), her childhood, or her actual p’erso~ality itself. Rochester, the QFher part of the dysfunctional love story, is the repressed noble son of a rich family, with no love or money of his own who is led to the West Indies by arrangement. He hopes that he can keep a stiff upper lip, make the best of a situation, but is eventually overwhelmed by the savagery and corruption of his surroundings. He rebels. The recurring image of the film is of long choking strands of seaweed (the sargasso of Sargasso Sea}, clutching and drowning him, like some malignant spirit of nature that he eventually associates with his new wife. Rochester wades through what suffocates him, grabs his resolve, and follows the exploitative trend of colonial

life and seals his wife’s fate, imprisoning her finaliy and immersing himself in the misery that’s eventually broken by lane herself. Each wants to give the other a chance, but only Antoinette is willing to resign herself to the other’s care. This movie seems to belong to the The Lover school of movie adaptation, where there is more sex than is ever alluded to in the novel. The nature of the film might associate itself also with recent sex thrillers such as Basic Instinc& Body ofEvidence, Sliver,ad nacseum , but ac+ally has more taste than its big studio peers, (to be played out to a much smaller audience of course). The trauma of the dystopic paradise is not drummed-up the way it might have been, and the mood of eventual collapse is not warned of or anticipated,

leaving only the subtle dread of knowing that there is no turning back or cure.

Wide Sorgusso Sect the book unravels itself slowly, and concludes in the same way as other books like the Turn of the Screw, or the novels of Japanese author Yukio Mishima, where

events occur

naturally, by fate. There

are effects without describable causes, in a world of more than a little anarchy. The film goes along similar lines, never answeiing questions like “is Rochester an asshole,” “is Antoinette a witch,” “is there a conspiracy,” and “well, who do I blame?” The truth is that there is no one to blame, and what we’re left with is a book about two people who might want to love each other, but aren’t up to covering the distance that is between each other with the affection and patience that is needed to get the job done. It’s a testimonial (or obituary) to the dilemma of cross-cultural, trans-continental relationshiD theory that many people, including this writer himself, have tried to make work for themselves. Hopefully in the twentieth century we have less to navigate than the doomed Antoinette and Rochester.

Wild Af Heart or Honeymoon In Vegas??? c

Takin’

Care

Cocker Stag

Prior to viewing the new outlaw love story True Romance, one might have expected a catastrophic pairing of skills from its offscreen masterminds; the movie is directed by Tony Scott, the visionary behind Top Gun and Beverly Hills Cop II, and written by Quentin Tarantino, the independent filmmaker who blew the arthouse doors down with last year’s Reservoir Dogs. But after watching the film, one’s presupposed clash of craftsmen turns out to be a brilliant team. Scott devises his usual hazy gleam of images while Tarantino offsets them with his dissident onslaught of grim malice and dry wit. The film has Clarence (Christian Slater), a Sid Vicious-looking bohemian who works at a comic-book store and idolizes Elvis, spending his Birthday watching a triple bill of kung-fu exploitation films. Clarence is picked up by Alabama, a bungled prostitute who gets paid to make a date with Clarence by his boss. The two hit it off, do the dirty deed, and fall in love --all in a matter of minutes. More than that, Clarence and Atabama get married. Sounds far from lurid, doesn’t it? Then Clarence decides to win Alabama’s honour back by confronting her pimp, a scarfaced, dread-locked whoremonger named Drext (Gary Oldman in great, gaudy form). A bloody scene results and Clarence skedaddles with half a million dollars worth of uncut cocaine. The lovers can’t stay in their home town of Detroit, so they take off to Los Angeles. Some may question Tarantino’s script.~- After $ I s

,

all, it’s formula stuff, it’s simple and it follows the archetypal pattern of the white-trash renegade romance. But that’s the pizazz of it. We, the viewers, follow Clarence and Alabama along their road to ruin and wait for their next encounter, giving director Tony Scott a chance to live up to Tarantino’s rebel status. True Romance is jam-packed with offbeat characters, all with which are interplayed by a tremendous cast of thousands. There’s even an 1’;.-

encounter between veteran actors Dennis Hopper, as Clarence’s ex-cop father, and Christopher Walken, as a Sicilian Mafioso. “I’m the antichrist,” Wal ken tells Hopper. “You have a little nigger in your blood,” Hopper educates Walken’s Italian character on some Roman history. It’s great to see these two working from each other’s astute theatrics. Another memorable cast member is Brad Pitt, who plays a space-case stonehead that is roommates with Clarence’s friend (played by Michael Rapaport). Just wait for the scene where he comes upon a horde of mobsters while he’s bottle toking... Other people that come for a cameo or two include Saul Rubinek as a high-rolling producer that has a craving for nose candy; Bronson Pinchot as the producer’s nervous and idiotic assistant; Chris Penn and Tom Sizemore as cops anxious to crack down a big case; and Val Kilmer as the obscure ghost of Elvis. True Romance has a shaky balance of humour and raw brutality, sporadically occurring through its viewing. It has its slight laughs, then it surprises you with barbaric gunfights. Tony Scott leaves his Top Gun days behind him and treats this film with a gutsy, I-havebrass-balls touch. Alabama being roughhoused by a mob enforcer is without question the most disturbing yet daring scene ever shot on Hollywood film. The only directors that could have done a better job are possibly John Woo or Quentin Tarantino himself. True Romance is a powder keg lit in a nitroglycerine plant. It’s good old American-style bangbang, donning a dynamite ast of characters. A warning though: this movie is not a date movie. Well, not unless your date likes the brutal beauty that Scott and Tarantino have to offer.

Bill Bissett is one of those venerated Canadian poets who has been writing poetry for about a million years, and strangely seems to have found little commercial fame on the level of, say, a Leonard Cohen. Maybe this isn’t so strange, really, when one thinks about it. For one thing Leonard Cohen moved to the States, where it is much easier for a Canadian poet to eke out a living. Unlike Leonard Cohen, Bill Bissett does not even attempt to sing, or if he does, he was not voted Canada’s best vocatist Actually, it wou td be very strange to hear Bill Bissett trying to put some of his poems on tape. This is me trying to say that Bill Bissett’s poems are, ah, a little strange to say the least. Bill Bissett does not have the most accessible poetry in the world. An understatement if I ever heard one. Bill Bissett’s poetry is like trying to talk about art to someone at a Ministry concert. It’s impossible, and somewhat pointless. If I were simply to cut up Bissett’s

about starting with odd, said with a healthy dollop of good old English understatement. How about chock full o’ spelling mistakes? One plus side to the book. There is a poem on page 79 called “morrissey at maypul leef gardns”. The poem itself, like the rest of those in the book, is pretentious, and perhaps lacking in relevance. However, Bissett put a photocopy of his ticket stub beside the poem. It was by far the most interesting reading in the book If one is into convoluted poetry, far less accessible than anything Leonard Cohen ever wrote; if one likes to read a strangely common political message (the government sucks, and that’s just the way it is), in the midst of bizarre scribbles; if one likes pretending to understand these scribbles and strange sentences, then they’ll love it. It really annoys me that I didn’t like it, however; because it was so odd, I felt that I was obliged to understand it. I once thought I was intelligent. Now, I’m not so certain. Maybe that’s the point. Bissett’s sitting at home, laughing his head off while the great artistes are searching his poems frantically, uselessly, for meaning. If anything should be said of th last photo uv th human soul, it’s this: Take it slowly, and don’t blow a gasket like I did trying to figure it out.

yarn

Riel at Batoche, during the Metis battle for autonomy from Canada in the last decades of the nineteenth century. The uprisings, especially the one in 1886 were bloody :onfrontationat afairs, during which t ,he Metis and the FIoya t Canadian rqounted Police (Isometimes literally) Iocked horns on the ssue of sovereignty. The book is taken from a conver;ation Gabriel Dumqnt had in 1901, which was transcribed into.a!most one>undred Danes of French long-hand.

7-m -e3--

This conversation was found by Michael Barnholden in the archives of Canada, in 1990. Barnholden did a great job of putting the conversation from the third person to the first person and generally making it a lively and easy book to read. It is probably not quite as accurate an account of the events at Batoche as other historical pieces, because itwaswritten in I90 I, fifteen years after the fact, and was spoken from the point of view of a man who was known to embellish a story. However, fact or fiction, embetlished or not, Gabriel Dumont Speaks is a quick, enjoyable, and easy read on a very exciting time in Canadian historv.
