t could have been worse. Karen Downie’s broken arm will heal, and she is expected to fully regain sight in her left eye. But then again, it could have been a lot worse. On Saturday, February 18, Downie, a fourth year Political Science student at UW, and her boyfriend Tally Henderson, a fourth year Phys. Ed. student at Laurier, ran out of Henderson’s apartment on High Street in Kitchener to break up a fight. This was accomplished without any problems, but Downie saw people looking into Henderson’s apartment. She spoke to them and they replied, ‘&we know you had nothing to do with it, but the call’s already been made.” To ensure that there would be no more violence, the police were called and asked to do a drive-by. Downie was told that they were “too busy.” Despite the police not coming, there were no signs of any further trouble. “We thought evcrything was ok,” said Downie, more aware than anyone of just how wrong she was. About an hour after the initial disturbance, there was a knock at the door. When Henderson answered it, 5 men charged in, grabbing Henderson and forcing him into a bedroom

her. He said “this is death,” recalls Downie, before he hit her in the face with a baseball bat, breaking bones in, her face both above and below her left cyc, and opcning a gash that took six stitches to close. “I could have been dead if they hit me an inch over,” states Downic. They clontinucd to beat her, breaking her arm and inflicting numerous minor injuries. Ellenor called the police and the thugs fled, leaving a grucsome sccnc: behind. Ellenor remembers finding Downie on her knees ore Henderson’s futon, “blood streaming,” before Downie flopped face down, crying “I can’t move my arm.” “She [Downie] had blood all over her face. She was screaming,” says Ellenor. Downie spent four days in KW Hospital. She might need reconstructive surgery on her right eye, and her vision, though expected to recover, is still “very blurry.” Downic is bitter about her injuries, belcause of the effect they are having on her life.

our Co-op students face imprisonment due to Co-op’s negligence. The Honours Applied Studies students are currently in Hong Kong, where they have worked illegally since January. Penalties for working without a visa could involve any combination of fines, two years’ imprisonment, deportation, or a ban from entering Hong Kong in the future. The students, three ofwhom are in the International Trade Specialization, all work for the same company, Universal Electronics. They received the co-op placement last October, and arrived in Hong Kong two months ago on tourist visas, In a February 27 letter to Keith Kenning, Director of Co-Operative Education, and David Drewc, Senior Officer Academic Affairs for the Federation of Students, they claimed that they were told by

their employer to only apply for a work visa after the Chinese New Year, long after they had begun working. Hong Kong prohibits any work, paid or otherwise, by foreigners without obtaining the proper visa in advance. All four are currently applying for work visas, a process that can take between four and six weeks. The outcome is not ccrtain, and they could be penalized or expelled for working before getting their visa. Co-op Education has had a work placement in Hong Kong for over three years, according to Peter Woolstencroft, the Associate Dean of Arts, “without a situation” of this ever occurring. At press time, he was unable to provide specific information on what went wrong. “They [the students] were

given

to obtain

instructions

[on how

work visas] . . . what happened to those instructions is not known to us.” He denied that he was blaming the students. Drewe was quick to single

out Co-op for blame, however. “Co-op dropped the ball,” he commented, referring to the lack of work visas for the students. It would be fine if Co-op had told the students that they had to make all of the arraingements thcmselves, he continued, but Co-op implied that it would look after the papenvork, and yet did not. The Fed executive will be meeting today, Friday, and Drewe wants see if either the executive or Students’ Council will make an official statcmcnt condemning Co-op for its handling of the matter. “Basically there’s not much we can do for these students [now],” Drewe said, adding that his main concern will be to “make sure this doesn’t ever happen again.” Kenning refused to comment on the matter, and Woolstencroft repeatedly noted the lack of information. “I feel very much uninformed about a number of items,” he corn-

mented, adding that the only information he had was in the letter the students sent to Drewe and Kenning, So far Woolstencroft has had no contact with the Canadian Consulate in Hong Kong, the British Consul in Ottawa, Immigration officials in Hong Kong, or the students’ families. He noted that Kenning wrote a letter to the students Wednesday to “try to get a better understanding” of the situation. “My position is that we had a relationship [with Hong Kong] that was not problematic. Somcthing clearly has happened. What happened and why it happcncd is not clear at a11 [as ofj the fn-st of March,” Woolstcncroft cant inucd. “My basic situation is ‘what situation arc they in?’ My first concern is with the students and what’s gIoing to happen to them.” That is exactly whal I~C S~Udents are eager to find out.

Peter Hopkins, Associate Provost of Student Affairs, welcomed the detegates to our school. Following a variety of sessions held in the Math and Computers building and the Davis Centre, some of the visitors decided to tour the campus, many wanted to purchase UW souvenirs, and the others headed toward Fed Hall for lunch.

Every year, each district hosts a conference, and UW had thcpleasure of hosting this year’s District II conference, which has only been held in Canada once before. Jeff Stransky and other UW SAA membcrs began planning for this conference 16 months ago. The SAA is a group of undergraduate students whose mandate is to link present, past, and future students. Our more popular activities here at UW include the final exam survival kits that many first and second year students receive from their parents, and Home Coming festivities among others. The conference festivities kicked off on Friday, February 24, when delegates from Ontario, PcnnSylvania, New York, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Washington D.C. registered at the Valhalla Inn in Kitchener.

continued from page 3 “basically w&c in an illegal si tuation right now, bccausc wc’rc working without a visa, and we’re going to keep rcncwing our passport under the auspices of tourists, when in fact we’re working... for that we may be deported.” As mernbers of the Commonwealth, Canadians are allowed to stay without visas in Hong Kong for up to three months at a time. They must leave the country for at least a day at the end of that period before reentering. According to a clerk at the Bri tish Consulate in Toronto, ali paperwork must be completed before foreign workers can cntcr the colony. “Obviously they weren’t given the correct information” if they expected to apply for a work visa once there, the clerk continued. “I’m (surprised they haven’t shipped them back to C:ulada.” The employerprovided the students with the standard paperwork, according to Sylvia Doulaverakis, one of the students, “Rut that hasn’t been good enough” this time, she said. The students pointed to the approaching transfer of the colony to China as the cause for much stricter enforccmcnt of the rules. However, despite the students not having the proper paperwork, “our Co-op did nothing about it.” Another student, Pamela Charbonncau agrees. “I’m rather unimpressed with [Co-op’s handling of] the itmmgmtion hctm-,” she commcntc~l. “The sc11001 had absolutely no idea of‘ the rcquircmerits,” “Ucfore we came. our C’CIordinator, Margaret G rose h, knew nothing, told us to get in contlict with the employer, clcctera, and it was less than two weeks bcforc [leaving], [and] we still hadn’t received plane tickets, anything.” Since arriving, the only contact they have had with the school, Charbonneau continued, was a faxed request for a job description to help next term’s posting. No one checked that they had received visas, or cvcn arrived safely. “They’re basically saying ‘here, I’ll send your resume to someone’ and then you’re on your own,” but if they arc caught, it stays on their record, not Co-op’s. Charbonncau said that it would be fine if she had gone to Hong Kong on her 0~11, but she had trusted Coop to help her out. Currently, both the Federation of Students and the Co-op department arc looking for mnrc information, and ways to help the students. In the meantime, the students are continuing to work while they await the outcome of their visa applications.

National Junkmail Return Dav by Cathy Tang special to Imprint In Canada over 13 billion pieces of unaddressed junkmail are distributed every year. Nearly 30% (3.9 billion) is delivered by Canada Post which makes it the largest single corporate distributer ofunaddressed junkmail in Canada. Although the Canada Post charter explicitly allows for the right of citizens to refuse delivery of unwanted mail, Canada Post has chosen to exempt junkmail. However, even some of Canada Post’s large corporate customers, among them Canadian Tire and Shopper’s Drugmart, have requested that Canada Post acknowledge the right of individuals to refuse delivery of junkmail. The private sector responded long ago with many local and national privately-owned distributors of junkmail skipping over the homes of people who do not want it. Our local Liberal M-P., Andrew Telegdi, has introduced private member’s Bill C27S which would compel Canada Post to devise a system to prevent delivery of: any direct mail advertising; or any mailing of printed matter that is not addressed to a particular individual; or any mail addressed to “house-

These answers are to questions left by students in the Dear Co-op box, which is located in Needles Hall on the Students Advising Co-op board.

Q. What is cuntinuous placement? A. Continuous placement is also know as second rounds. It is a modified version of first rounds for stu‘dents who were not matched to jobs in first rounds, These students apply for jobs like before, but now Co-op coordinators also send resumes to employers on behalf of students, based on a skills and interest form which every student fills out. Job postings continue until the end of the semester, or until all

A. There are three stages to the first round. In the first stage, students apply to job postings. This stage lasts five to seven days. The interview period is the next stage. Depending on the volume of students and jobs, this stage lasts approximately two weeks. Employers usually visit the campus on a particular day to interview students, or, if this is not possible, conduct telephone interviews. The final stage is referred to by many as the ranking stage. Students find out from the employers who interview them whether they have been offered a job, been ranked, or not ranked. A student can accept an offer of employment, or go through the ranking process to try and get matched to a job he or she was ranked for. Q. What is ranking? A. Ranking is the process by which you indicate your choices of employment. An employer offers employment to students they prefer to hire, which r1len appl;ars on the student’s ranking form as the phrase If a person who is “ job offer.” offered a job does not rank the job as a first choice, then other students I lave a chance to get the job through :L’ computer matching process.

ederal Finance Minister Paul Martin’s budget plan was greeted with mixed reactions on last Tuesday. Martin’s ideas include price hikes on gas, a raise in corporate talcs, and the cxpectcJ lay-offs of 45,000 civil servants. The budget may bo intcrpretcd anywhcrc from wisely aggressive to possibly destructive. Stephen Codrington, Prcsidcnt of the Federation of Stud&s, rcspccts some of Martin’s efforts to repair the economy, saying, “it’s going to bring some hope as far as getting the deficit in check.” Codrington worries, however, about stude:nts having to compete for funding with health care advocates. Codrington expressed his anxiety by stating, “if education suffers, the country suffers.” University of Waterloo Economics professor Larry Smith approves of Martin’s plan. “In the long run, I believe it’s good [for students], because in the long run it’s good for the economy.... It will stop the interest rate from growing.... It’s aboutliberatingourselves from interest rates.“Smith acknowledged, however, that the budget’s short ten-n effects may be adverse, for both students and the country. The Canadian public has received Paul Martin’s news with mingled sighs of disappointment and relief. Undoubtedly, the proposed plan will significantly change the face of Canada’s economy.

In that period Amnesty lntcmational put the cost of the Indonesian occupation at 2 10,000 deaths out of a 1975 population of 650,000.

This has led to the United Nations leading all-inclusive talks on East Timor later this year. In Canada, the East Timor Alert Network (ETAN) has played a key role in making East Timor an issue of public discussion and forcing the Canadian government to address the issue. However, it needs our support to be effective and to continue to work for the people of East Timor. For this purpose First Among Equals, a Waterloo Public Interest Research Group (WPIRG) working group, is holding an International Coffeehouse to raise funds for ETAN and to increase public awareness about East Timor.

Firing Line % It takes a special type of person to work in customer service jobs. Such an ubbermenctz must have nerves of steeI and the forbearance of Job. This is because many of the customers that one wiIl have tb deal with are unreasoning and unreasonable assholes. Whoever came up with the expression “The customer is always right” deserves several good slaps upside the head. In a sense, the customer is always right in that he is paying for whatever service the company offers, and thus is entitled to the best service that the company has to offer. In another, more important sense, there are many customcrs who display crude, unthinking bchaviour of the sort generally exhibited by the lower primates. These infuriating pains in the ass arc unworthy of engaging in a simple, mutually bcnefi&al customer service transaction. ?‘wo years ago, before I was eligible for O.S.A.P., I was forced to work part-time at a prominent fast-food joint in order to supplement my summer income, It was thcrc that 1 learned to feel cantctnpt for my -f4ow man. After a few weeks of iutcracting with drunken shithcads piling in after the bars Ict out in search of cheap food and a place to vanddizc, I kcgan to miss my old factory job. Thcrc, the only thing I had to interact with was a spot wclcling machine, infinitely prcfcrablc to dcaIing with other pcopic, cvcn though it did spit out red hot sparks all over me. You may think that I am cxagger;lting, but as God is my witness, a customer scrvicc job can really shake your faith in humanity. The truly frightening thing is that many of the worst people that I had to deal with wcrc other univcrsity students. It is really sad when some of the “best” and “brightest” in Canada secrn incapable of using a toilet. A strange but true thing that I learned upon cleaning the bathrooms after them. Asidc from vandalism and barbaric bchaviour, the person employed in customer service must put up with some really stupid questions and complaints. The worst being along the lines of “why do you do this, this, and this as opposed to that, that, and that” or “why is this so expensive?” Do these people really bcl&e that the guy standing in front of them wearing the goofy hat and uniform is the same guy who implements company policy and sets prices? Do they think that after he finishes his shift serving up french fries he retires to a board-room in order to discuss the prospects for the next quarter with the shareholders? While it’s true that many companies have stupid policies and ridiculous prices, complaining to the guy behind the counter is not going to get you far. If it’s any consolation, it is unlikely that the guy behind the counter receives any benefit from outrageous prices. Nine times out of ten he’s getting minimum wage. I bring aII of this up because I was recently at a prominent fast food joint and the guy in front of me was screaming at the girl behind the counter because his food was taking too long. She was not responsible for making his order -just for taking it - but he was behaving as if she had done him personal harm. I sympathized with her and wanted to strangle him.

n yet another example of media scnsationalism last week, the “news” show T/ze FzjVz E.s~e aired a story about a prison response team’s reaction to a riot last April at P4W, the Prison for Women, in Kingston, Ontario. Clips of a videotape were broadcast which showed cell extractiuns and strippings of severaf inmates performed by an emergency response team called in from the nearby Kingston Pcnitcntiary. The rest of the piece was made up of objections to the Correctional Service of Canada’s decision to use a male extraction team in a female prison. The objections came from representatives of the Elizabeth Fry Society, the Citizcn’s Advisory Committee, and a lawyer, all of whose roles are to advocate prisoners’ rights. Only one person spoke on behalf of Corrections, a member of the investigative team that wrote the official riot report. Although she is currently a warden at the prison, she did not hold this position in April when the riot occured. The biggest concern the organizations had with the Service was that female inmates were stripped in the presence of a male riot squad, despite having been shackIed and rendered defcnceless; at this point, female staff could have easily stepped in. This procedure was clearly one that removed all the women’s dignity and self-respect, a humiIiation not deserved by anyone, be they criminals or saints. This is obviously a valid point, and the dehumanization of their wards is not something that the CSC rullshes. However, it is at times’ unavoidabIe in extenuating circumstances. At times where the danger of physical abuse can be replaced by a little loss of dignity, it is ccrtajnly warranted. In this respect, the media has been irresponsible in its reporting, clearly slanting the story in favour

The riot at the prison had actuaIly begun four days before the riot squad had been called in. It was instigated by a (failed) preplanned breakout attempt on the prisoners’ part, which ended in one staff member being surrounded by inmates and narrowly avoid-

Another officer was stabbed several times in the arm, back, and breast area by an inmate brandishing a syringe, while others had urine and feces thrown at them. Consequently, the entire prison was put under a lock-down for four days, during which the staff was continually subjected to death threats, and forced to deal with the inmates as professionally and unemotionally as possible. Beyond this, the entire prison population (roughly 120 women) was also subjected to the constant yelling and threats

environment. After trying to deai with the situation in less drastic ways, the emergency response team was called in due to the presence of weapons in the women’s cells. Because it is economically infeasible for P4W to maintain

the

a female response team, a (male) ERT from Kingston Penitentiary was ordered. Their onlyjob was to remove the inmates from their cells, get rid of all the weapons hidden either in the cells or on the women (hence the need for the stripping), and to put the inmates back in the cells. This is what they did. Furthermore, the riot team had two priorities in doing their job: first, that no staff were harmed, and secondly that no inmates are harmed. They succeeded in both, Despite the women’s loss ofdignity, NOBODY WAS HURT! Would those objecting to the Service’s decision to carry on with the use of the ERT for the stripping have preferred the use of female staff! This was a possibility faced by the prison heads. The very reai threat, however, of staff choosing to vent some fmstrations on the inmates if put in a position of power - such as the stripping allowed had to be considered. Had the Service allowed such a possibility, and had any staff seen it through, the CSC would be in a much tighter spot than it is now. Do they let the women be stripped by men and let them lose a little dignity, or do they let the female staff do the job, and risk a lawsuit later on? Seen in this light, how could Corrections have made any other decision than the one it did? Out of context, sure, those men were meceaaaan. But when you’re dealing with four days of rioting, weapons, death threats, injured staff, and some of the most violent female inmates in the country, I don’t think there were too many other alternatives. Kudos to the Correctional Services of Canada. In future. 1 suggest that our national news teams focus more on properly informing the public rather than agitating an emotional response.

Feds give bad name to Feds To the Editor, In an age where universities are trying to promote an image of academic excellence and responsibility, your interview with two of our future Fed executive members, Rose Bilicic and Mike Suska, showed that the public perception of universities as merely ‘party places’ might not be that wrong. These two future V.P.s arc not off to a good start with their comments in the Feb. 1‘Iimprint. Asked what they wcrc going to do now that they won, Rose replied “I’m going to drink a11 night and then I’m going to have sex,” and Mike’s rcsponsc was “I’m gonnagct fuckin’ drunk, then I don’t know.” What I know is the poor example thcsc two set with their cotnmcnts. What they do in their private lives is their own business, but they need to recognize that they have been clcctcd into paid positions ofauthority, and with that authority comes an cxpcctation of acting responsibly. In an age of student alcoholism, date rape, violence rclatcd to alcohol, and AIDS, their comments were not responsible. Don’t publicly promote activities that have destroyed 1ivcs. To Rose and Mi kc: I’m certain that you are capable of doing the jobs you wcrc clectcd for. Now smarten up in what you say in public: You rcprcsent the University of Waterloo now.

Me Jane, you Steve To the Editor, This is in response to the article titled ‘Codrington’s Spin on Accountability’ which appeared in Imprint on Friday, February 24. I’d like to focus your attention to the beginning portion of the article which states “‘Managemen By Walking Around,’ a concept Turn Peterson (?) presents to help managers stay in touch with their s&.&j First uf all, we dun ‘t manage students, we workfor them.” MBWA is a concept that rcccived a lot of attention during the recent Fed elections. Unfortunately, the coverage falsely represented the real meaning of MBWA, as did the February 24 article, This concept is derived from the #1 managerial problem, which is managers who arc out of touch with people and customers. Tom Peters, the co-author of /n Search fir Exculfenre and A Pussion,ftir Excellence: The Lea&v-ship DiJtirence, says that “being in touch means tangible, visceral ways of being informed.” The parallel that should be drawn here is between students and customers. Ifwe apply MBWA to the Fcdcration of Students, it dots not imply that WC “manage students” by

any means. Students serving students, that’s what the Feds are all about. MBWA is meant to serve people. It means listening to them, being in touch with them. For example, in a service industry, it means getting in the customer’s shoes and finding out what problems they have with your service. If your service is not being used, why isn’t it? Do students use the Fed Hotline? Do they even know that one exists? It means inviting the customers to come to the premises and present a history of the organization’s culture (Fed Open House - last term), developing joint problem-solving teams with customers (open forums of discussion with local MPs - last term). It’s a building of commitment and a sense of teamwork. Isn’t that what the Feds are all about? There are MBWA principles that arc currently being used by the Feds, whether they know it or not. Howcvcr, thcrc is always room for improvement. How arc your elected executivc members supposed to rcpresent you if they don’t even know what you arc discussing within your own council meetings? 1 don’t mean taking 3 days out of the week and walking around campus, chatting it up with everyone you make eye contact with. Yes, that would be impractical. I mean making the time to attend a few faculty, village and church college council meetings. This way, you can see first hand what issues are being dealt with within these groups. It means adding a couple of hours to your 60 hour week. It means being accountable. It means serving the students. That’s all. I’d like to close with another quote from Peters’ book. “MBWA: the technology of the obvious. It is being in touch, with customers, suppliers, your pcoplc. It facilitates innovation, and makes possible the teaching of values to every member of an organization. Listening, facilitating, and teaching and reinforcing values. What is this except leadership? Thus MBWA is the technology of leadership. We well subsequently argue that leading (a school, a small business or a Fortune 100 company) is primarily paying attention,.... All this can be accomplished only through means that are visible, tangible,” -June Puk President-elect, Federation of Students

Coffee Break Blues To the Editor, Next time you sit down with your favourite blend of coffee, think about where it comes from: the most popular brands in the supermarket come from the work of thousands of labourcrs in South America. Next, you should think about who is getting most of the money in return for your coffee; in most cases instead of the labourcrs, it’s large North American coffee companies.

Missing Info To the Editor, Last week I wrote an article for Imprint entitled “What am I Eating?” It discussed using caution in supporting a food system that relies heavily on chemical food additives. The article did not intend to examine all aspects of the food industry in detail, but to act as a springboard for people to become interested in issues which involve their health. Unfortunately, some of the information on how people could get more involved with the food system, and make better informed decisions in their food purchases was omitted, Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to provide a list of references you can use to get more information.

“You shotmy dog! Why did you shootmy dog?” South American countries. They realize that they need to diversify theirproducts in order to gain greater returns for their labour. The problem is that they need money to finance the changes, and it is hard to save money when you can barely afford to feed your family. This predicament was forced by the imperialistic countries of many of our ancestors. When the southern countries were made into colonies of more powerful nations, they were forced to grow crops to satisfy the consumers in the rich countries while the needs of the colonies became secondary. Although most countries have achieved political independence, the market forces pushed upon them years ago still push today. However, the way to help is not by refusing to drink coffee, but rather to support organisations such as Bridgehead, who attempt to give coffee growers a fair price. They buy their coffee from democratically run organizations of small coffee producers. The higher prices paid give the growers an opportunity to invest their earnings in food, education, basic health care, and diversification of crops, Bridgehead coffee is currently not available in supermarkets. However, if you ask your local store manager for it and others do the same, we can show them that there is sufficient demand to carry the product. Bridgehead coffee and other products are available at the Global Community Centre in Waterloo and at most food Co-ops. Remember, even the finest coffee loses its flavour if the price paid was human suffering. -

Codrington not accountable To the Editor, I feel compelled to respond to Stephen Codrington’s “spin on accountability” (Imprint, Feb. 24). Stephen Codrington is in no position to speak about accountability, considering the way he has foregone his own obligation of accountability to all UW students. Mr. Codrington claims “we don’t manage students, we work for them.” Further, he urges the Imprin tto “take inventory ofwhose side we are on.” It is a shame that Stephen failed to recite these mantras during the debate about the $25 Student Centre fee. As many people know, the fee will be refunded in full to students who paid it in the Fall 1994 term. The reasoning was that these students paid at a time when both facilities were not open, so they should not have been charged the fee in the first place. However, students that paid the fee this term have not and probably will not receive a refund, despite the fact that both buildings are still not open. I’d like to ask Mr. Codrington why he wasn’t working for the students who were (are) blatantly getting ripped off. Whose side areyou jugon, Stephen ? No nmre “rough tice.” It’s time for you to practice what you preach.

Also, try talking to your local grocers. Ask them where their oranges came from, where their free range eggs are kept, or why they don’t carry organically grown produce. As consumers we wield something called purchasing power. We can force retailers to sell the food products that we want by not purchasing those we feel uncertain about. Then we can proceed to tell them what we will buy. They have to listen to you. If they don’t, they go out of business. -

Keep up the Rant To the Ed,itor, Kudors to Dave Lynch on his new “Ranit.” Finally, someone has gathered up enough nerve to deal with the issues that concern us most. His scathing condemnation of Imprint’s religious columns was nothing short ofbreath-takingly enlightening. One can only hope that in the future, we will be anointed with his thoughts on such scarcely debated topics as The Womyn’s Day Rag, the December 6th Ceremony, student apathy and even perhaps (gasp!) the deficit. Here’s hoping his column never contemplates originality! - Marc ,Risdale 4B Mech anieal Engineering

Before I go into my grievances with the language classes, let me first point out why languages are so important. First, they can help you later in life, regardless of your faculty. Japanese, Mandarin, Spanish, and French are all going to become extremely important as North America extends its relationships further west, south, and east. Pcopie here complain that our Oriental population doesn’t speak English. Well, their English is a lot better than my Mandarin or Japanese. And frankly, if they work harder and know more languages than we do, they deserve the jobs they are so often accused of “stealing.” It is a shame that UW does not have a strong and well funded modem languages department. More ofour ever-shrinking budget should be given to this part of the ailing Arts faculty, as languages will soon be just as important as any other skill a person might have.. . Last term I took a couple of language courses here at UW, and while I did learn something, I could have learned much more. Both courses were taught in roughly the same manner. Grammar exercises were assigned and later taken up in class, short compositions were written, an oral lab was held each week, and so on. On the surface, this seems a sensible and efficient way to learn or enhance one’sknowledge of a foreign language. However, both courses asked very little of the student and often made poor use of precious class time. When grammar exercises are assigned, they are habitually taken up in class. This is fine, as long as there is a need for this. Often exercises are easily understood by the entire

class. Mistakes are made, but they too arc often self-evident and, given the correct answer, the student can easily identify why the mistake was made and learn from it. Of course, not all of these exercises arc easy to understand. But why not post or distribute the answers to the exercises? The students could check for themselves that their answers are correct. To ask this is not unreasonable. Students can raise problems as they arise. More importantly,, valuable class time would not be wasted taking up exercises that cvctyone already understands. Naturally, the professor has to use some discretion. People do not learn at exactly the same rate. But at least this way, the pact: of learning would adjust better to the students in each class, rather than the students adjusting to the course’s excessively slow or fast pace. The class time gained from this could be used in a number of ways -- to cover more material, to write supplementary compositions, or to have more oral practice and dixcussions. Speaking the language, and speaking it as spontaneously as possible, is the most important goal. In my oral labs, we were often asked to preparc short answers to discussion questions before class. Regurgitating answers to prepareId exercises does not improve a person’s fluency. Any idiot can read out a prepared statement - even I can do that. These labs should be used for spontaneous discussion -no preparation, except for some key vocabulary or ideas where necessary. While reading, writing, and a strong grammatical base are important, more of an effort could be made to ensure that our language programs produce more fluent students.

by Scott Morton special to Imprint cading Week has come and gone and now it’s tirnc- to ret back to the reality of R papers due, labs to finish and fast approaching exams! The memory of fhosc care-free days spent tanning on the beach, effortlessly gliding down those powdery slopes or happily swingin, (T the hammer in ‘12;ashingtotq Pcnnsylvaniq may be the only thing that can sustain you until fhc end of April. For twenty brave students from Waterloo and Wilfrid Lauricr Univcrsitics, the memory ofthoso hammx-swinging, staple-gunning, trench-digging days will last long after most have forgotten their more conventional Spring Break travels. Thcsc students chose to seek out a new way to spend their break and to boldly go to Washington, Pennsylvania, with Habitat for Humanity. They took part in the Collegiate Challenge, an annual event whcrc students from around the world can participate in the buildingofa home for Habitat. This year there were 4800 volunteers for the Collegiate Challenge across North America with 104 Host Affiliate sites. Habitat for Humanity is an international, non-profit organization which strives to eliminate poverty housing. Founded in 1976, the success of Habitat’s efforts is reflected in its phenomenal growth since its inception. Today the organization works’ in forty countries, with

projects around the world. The pace ofwork is furious! An international goal of 12,000 to 15,000 building projects this year means a Habitat house will be dedicated every 56 minutes. In September of this year, Habitat will commemorate the completion of40,OOO homes world wide. The students at Waterloo and Lauricr arc proud to bc part of this amazing work, A campus chapter was cstablishcd at Waterloo four years ago and in that short time the students involved have rcachcd out to the Waterloo community and other communities in many ways. Projects have included renovating

A hand up, not a hand-out the Oasis drop-in centre in downtown Kitchener, and a dcconstruction project in Phillipsburg, in which old building materials were salvaged to be recycled. During the fall, students do yard work for donations in Waterloo ncighbourhoods. An annual bcnefit concert is held at the Heuther Hotel, an event which literally ROCKS the house! Work on actual build sites includes last summer’s work in Guelph as well as acting as media guides at the highly publicized Jimmy Carter Work Project in Bridgeport. The fall term included

a weekend build in Cleveland, Ohio. Now that the hammers have cooled off from the UW Chapter’s latest endeavour in Washington, it’s rewarding for new Habitatcrs to rcfleet back on the important work they’ve accomplishcd during this once in a lift time experience. The 20 students from Waterloo and Laurier left on Student housing Sunday morning with cars packed, a mission in mind and a will to hetp in our hearts. The mission was to give a week of our time and energy to help construct a house for a single mother. It also included painting and cleaning at the Washington City Mission, a shelter for men with alcohol problems as well as women and children in need. We had all done some reading on the goals of Habitat and of the Collegiate Challenge, in particular “to gain greater awareness of the need for decent and affordable housing and to deepen commitment to social action.” In the course of the week, these issues would acquire a human face for us, and the goals of Habitat would be put into action and become part of our lives. As we all soon learned, the work of Habitat runs much deeper than building a house for someone else. There were many lessons to learn from the experience of home building that were not immediately apparent. Watching the house take shape was almost magical. It soon developed from a mere skeleton of pine studs into a structure with rooms and walls. WC could see that everynailandcveryshcetofdrywall brought it closer to completion. The importance and cffcctivencss of teamwork also became obvious to us. WC worked side by side with volunteers from the community and soon found that even though they were seasoned pros and WC cvere only beginners, everyone’s task was equally important to the l~ousc. Even the dirtier jobs wcrc‘ rcwarding. Digging trenches for the water lines to the house, which left us covered in mud from head to toe, gave us a feeling of great satisfaction. Thanks to our humbIc efforts the family now had access to a necessity that so many of us in the developed world take for granted: running water. We found that mutual muddiness forms a strong bond of friendship between people and gives you that Victoria Principal complexion to boot! Bruce Barton once made a statement which I believe applies perfectly to our experience. He said, “sometimes

tremendous consequences come from little things.. I am tempted to think there are no little things.” I think I can safely say that everyone on the trip would agree. In addition to the lessons we

at its best! learned, we returned from Washington with many new friends, both among the group and in the community itself. In our group, a sense of co-operation and cohesion quickly developed. This was especially good, since the 20 of us had to sleep in the same room all week on the floor. We made meals together, sang together and worked together. Each day, a member of the group shared an inspirational “thought for the day” to keep everyone focused and motivated. Now that we’ve returned, a long lasting flurry of email activity can be expected. Generosity was served up in heapin’ helpings from the residents of Washington. Dave Voigt, the coordinator of the local chapter of Habitat, made contacts for us in

Habitat 3 work is much deeper than building a house for someone else Washington and provided patient guidance at the building site. The Fairhill Manor Christian Church was home for the week, and mattresses were donated from the Washington City Mission to facilitatc a great night’s sleep. The Mission also provided hot breakfasts. On-site showers and laundry facilitics were provided by generous neighbours. We were invited to a dinner with the Fairhill Manor youth group, a driving force behind the fund raising efforts for the house. At the Pittsburgh vs. Quebec hockey game WC attended at the Civic Arena, we found ourselves in the middle of 17,13 1 hungry Penguin fans! After the game, we had the opportunity to be ambassadors for Canada. To our pleasant surprise, the Pittsburgh fans proved to be extremely warm and friendly and we traded the signs which we had displayed

during

the game. Also

exchanged were the Canada pins which we generously offered to anyone who crossed our paths. The most important friendships we made were with those for whom we had come. We got to know the

single mom, Debbie, by name and she came to help us work on the site. She came to our banquet on the final night of our stay, along with some of the volunteers who had worked with us. We also got to know the men at the City Mission, as they shared their stories with us. The lessons we learned and the friendships we made on the trip were invaluable and indelible. Above all, however, we gained a new understanding of what Habitat for Humanity is all about. Firstly, we came to see those whom we helped as real people, with feelings’, stories to tell and goals in life. We came to see ourselves as a part of their own process of improving their lives. True to the philosophy of Habitat, we gave them a hand up, not a handout. We helped improve a home at the Mi ssion and provide a home for Debbie and her child. We saw that these people did not expect something for nothing, but were willing to work to ameliorate their lives. The men at the Mission demonstrated it through their work at the paper and steel recycling operations run by the mission, which help to cover its expenses. Debbie’s commitment was evident INhen she helped us at the site. As with ali Habitat homeowners, she is rcquircd to perform 501) hours of “sweat equity” volunteer work with Habitat - to help ‘pay’ fcrr the house. Secondly, we lcamcd the recipe for Habitat fiar I Iumanity’s incrcdible success. Bring many people of various backgrounds, agesand skill lcvcls together, add committnont to a common purpose and the key ingredient of love. Let them work together for 8 short time and allow them to bond and learn from each other. This rccipc yields valuable lessons, strong friendships and a new house. This house is more than just a structure to provide shelter, however; it is a home, a place to stand. As Archimedes said, “give me a place tin stand and I can move the earth,” We hope that our efforts have helped Debbie gain for herself a place where she and her family can do just ‘that.

S

markable career last Saturday PAC, but he and the Warriors that they can write a couple tences more at the OUAA championship tournament that tonight at Hamilton’s Copps

at the hope senWest starts Coli-

seum. In his final home game, Van Koughnett exploded for 24 points in the first half en route to a game-high 31 as Waterloo (8-6) beat the Guelph Gryphons (12-2) 68-65 to close out their regular-season schedule. Tonight at 6 p-m., the Warriors will tackle the Lakehead Nor’westers at Hamilton’s Copps Coliseum in an OUAA West quarterfinal game. If they win, the Warriors advance to play first-place Guelph on Saturday at 2 p.m. Tonight’s 8 p.m. quarterfinal pits the third-place Brock Badgers against sixth-place Western Mustangs, the winner to play the second-place McMaster Marauders at 12 p.m. Saturday. Copps hosts the championship game on Sunday at 2 p.m. “The past five years have been kind of up and down,” Van Koughnett reflected after Saturday’s game. “We’ve had some talented teams and not come through. “This game really meant a to me individually and to the whole

team, especially against Guclph since they beat us here last year. That was probably the hardest loss to take out of all the losses in my career here.” Guelph scored an upset at the PAC last season as they eliminated Waterloo from the playoffs in the quarterfinal round. Last Saturday, Waterloo led for much of the game before a pair of free throws from Guelph’s Cam Nekkers tied the game at 6 l-61 with 350 to play. After spending much of the second half on the bench in foul trouble, rookie guard Mano Watsa subbed back into the game and immediately sparked the Warrior rally. Collecting a turnover, Watsa fed Mark Hopkins for a dunk that put Waterloo up to stay. The rookie grabbed another steal seconds later and scored easily to make it 65-61* He also added a pair of free throws to help clinch the victory. In the first half, Van Koughnett provided plenty of evidence for why UW head coach Tom Kieswetter and his predecessor Don McCrae mention him in the same breath as Mike Moser and Peter Savitch. He literally took the game by the throat, registering 24 of Waterloo’s 38 points. On two consecutive Guelph possessions, he tore down the defensive rebound, led the fast break to the offensive end, and scored himself. This was on

lot,

top of his trademark deadly outside shooting. “We had a few intcrcsting moments, but we played as a team and to be successful, we have to play that way,” Kieswetter said. “[Guelph] made some adjustments to their dcfence and paid a lot more attention to Sean,” hc said. Kieswettcr isn’t worried about the team being too pumped for tonight after such an emotional victory. “We want to ride this one for a while. We want to keep this fresh in our minds, in terms of the amount of effort it took. It was almost hcroic, some of the effort that we put forth. WC want to keep this in mind and practice this way because this is the standard by which we have to play, the standard by which we measure ourselves now. If anything, we want to get more intense and execute better.” Van Koughnett accumulated 3 1 points and 8 rebounds, subbing offthe court for only a minute or so. Hopkins and Watsa had 15 and 9 points respectively. For Guelph, Rob Henry and Nekkers had 20 and 14 points respectively. The usually potent guard Alex Brainis managed only nine points on 3-of- 13 shooting. The Nor’westers will have revenge on their minds tonight, since Waterloo swept them on the opening weekend of the regular season back in January.

Pucksters lose finals, wrap up season by Kimberly Moser Imprint sports

Ithough their season may be over, memories of the 1994% hockey season will Jingcr in the minds of the Warriors and their fans forever. One week after their electrifying double overtime win to climinate Lauricr, Waterloo was knocked out of the playoffs by Western in a best of three division final. The Mustangs took the first game 6-3 in London and then won the scrics Sunday afternoon 3- 1 in Waterloo. It’s a hard way to end any season, but it’s especially hard this year as Waterloo will lose many of its key players. OUAA All-stars Geoff Schncirier and John Wynne will be moving on, as will sparkplugs Greg Allen and Dean MacDonald. Along with them is scoring machine Jason Mcrvyn. Wynnc and Allen were the backbone of Waterloo’s successful program. Wynnc led by example through his classy style of hockey while Allen’s inspirational play motivated Waterloo every time. Schneider

was a constant

work-

horse on dcfcnsc, always there when Waterloo needed him most. MacDonald’s powerful speed and intensity sparked the Warriors every time he stepped on the ice.

Mervyn, a quiet leader in his own right, led the team in scoring two years in a row and was a consistent player all year. But, it isn’t all bad news for the Warriors. Although fi II ing the spots of these great veterans wi II be hard, the rookies this year showed g-cat promise. Goalie Joe Harris had an cxceptional year in net for the Warriors as he kept them close in every game. His leadership nor;t year will be key as Waterloo cntcrs a rebuilding season. Dcfenscman Chad Palmer lad all rookies with his great skill and desire to win. His lcadcrship on a much depleted defense will be vital for the Warriors’ s~~ccess next year. The always flamboyant Jeff Goldic was another key rookie. He was a constant offensive threat no matter where he was on the ice. Although he didn’t have quite the season he would have liked to have had, Matt St. Gcrmain looked awesome out there as he racked up some good numbers in his Grst year. In one weekend alone the guy had five points! His powerful style of hockey was also an asset to the Warriors

this year.

Another rookie to watch out for is Aaron Kenncy. Although he saw limited action this year, you just know he’s going to be a supcrstar. WC’S got that quiet leadership

and style that every team needs. With a 13 -9-2 record, these Warriors can be proud of their efforts this season. “J thought overall we have to be very proud of our guys,” said head coach Don M&cc after Sunday’s loss. “They weren’t ranked all year long and they continued to work hard to stay with the teams in the top IO.” “We lost a lot of key players,” said rookie Matt St. Germain thinking about next season. “Geoff Schneider, John Wynne, Greg Allen: they’ve been here for four years and rcWarriors get in a few last digs in the season showstopper. ally made the team what it is. We have a lot of young guys middle of it. But, make no mistake upon their returns to the lineup. If coming in next year.

he Waterloo Warriors Vollcyball team cannot claim the title of best in Ontario, despite what their season record indicates. Last Thursday, the team lost to the Toronto Blues in the OUAA Division Finals with a match score of 3-2. Except for being a blow to the ego, the loss is not detrimental for the Warriors. As a reward for placing first in their division, the Waterloo Warriors claimed a spot in the CIAO championships. The Division finals determined only seeding for the competition. Because of their loss, Waterloo is going into the championships in seventh place. Toronto will be going in sixth. The game was typical of the Warrior style of play. They came on strong, winning the first two sets with scores of 155 and 17-6. As the third set began, the audience may have been thinking that it was simply a formality. Seasoned fans knew better than to be so confident. Anyone following the Warrior volleyball team knows that they have often induced panic in their fans as they fall behind for a brief period of time. The procedure gencrally foliows the same pattern. The

Plague team takes an early and almost unconquerable lead. Head coach Ed Price calls a time-out and calls fur focus, Often, the first pep talk doesn’t work, and a second time-out is called. By then, the fans have begun to feel the tension, and they can see their tension reflected in Price’s tense face. The second time-out is more successful; the team comes together, and puts the ball away as many times as is required to secure the win. Unfortunately, this did not workagainst Toronto. Toronto took

cured out set, they lost the final as well, with a score of 13- 15. Perhaps fatigue attacked the team near the end. After all, the team is not often forced into playing five sets. In many si tuations, the team wins in three or four sets. Perhaps the lack of fans that support them so strongly threw them off. Or perhaps it was an example of the inconsistency that has been plaguing the team all season, something that Price lhas been concentrating on improving.

t wasn’t a race for the agoraphobic, as approximately 1600 carbo-loaded nordic skiers jostled for space at the start area. For some, the race began before the gun went off, through the struggle to edge up closer to the ranked elite skiers who were spread over several rows across the wide start line. All of a sudden, the pre-race jitters gave way to a mighty adrenaline rush as the race began. Skiers took off at a break-neck speed for 25kr-n and 5&m freestyle races in the 1995 Gatincau 55 on the balmy first Sunday of reading week. Or rather, those fottunatc souls who weaseled their way to the start banner skied off, while the rest of the skiers 30 rows back started the first pathetic shuffles that were to last for the next seven kilomctres. Double-pol ing like there was no tomorrow, the majority ofthc racers spent the first part of the race fighting to manoeuvre around slower skiers while side-stepping around many fallen bodies. When the tabulations were in, Waterloo’s nordic ski team earned many impressive results and times. Dave Climie continued his impressivc season by earning an incredible second place finish overall in the 25km race in a time of one hour, 2 1 minutes. As the lone female representative of the team, Joanne Murray skied a respectable 1:49, earning a fifth place spot in the women under 25 category. The rest of our hardy Warriors

braved the 5Okm distame, with three of the men placing in the top- 100. In approximate times, Steve Daniels completed the course in 2 hours, 45 minutes, Brent Curry followed at 2:48, and Brad Frenette came in at 2:50. Norm O’Reilly followed at three hours, and Kevin Thomson was close at his heels being just six minutes back. Randy Fagan and Al Ritchie also had good finishes in the 50km freestyle, while Luigi D’Agnillo competed in the 25km classical race. The start to this successful

Waterloo an inscription on the trophy kept at Carleton, and each skier received a sweatshirt for his efforts.

efore reading week, the Athena Squash Team headed out to Queen’s University for the OWIAA Team Championships. Only the top four teams in Ontario make it to the fmals, so it was quite exciting to be there. Although it was a tough squeeze “We made it!” “Making it to the finals was one of our goals this season. We have a lot of talent on the team; it has been agrcat rebuilding year and we look forward to squashing our way to the finals next season!“commented Honee Hoculik, the assistant squash coach. The Athenas met Queen’s in the first round. Queen’s holds the top Ontario players at all 6 positions on their team. They came in 1st place hands down. Mac lost to Queen’s as well to land in 2nd place. Waterloo and Western battled it out for 3rd. The two teams (Waterloo and Western) played close matches. In 5th position, Crystal Flabiano, a returning co-op/tennis player, dazzled her opponent with strategic shots and a killer serve. However, Western won 3- I. Kelly “CHUCK” Norris demanded a competitive edge off her opponent with her ag-

gressive squash talent; however, Western held their ground and won the last few points in the match. Rachelle Thompson, playing 3rd for Waterloo, had her opponent in a grid lock as they battled back and forth but Western held the key for the winning position. Look out next year, she’ll be back with a vengeance. Susan Jones, a veteran 2nd position team player, demonstrated her experience, patience, and determination as she overpowered her Western opponent to win the match. Honee Hoculik, in number one position for her final year on the team, did not fair was well as Jones. Her ankle took itls toll in the second game and Western took advantage to win 3-1. The Athena’s look forward to next year and h#ave already made some goals for the summer term when a number of co-op players return. A special thanks to Clive Porter for his coaching over the past couple of months . “You’re a great inspiration, Clive, Thankyou!” (Huck and Jones.) A special note: Congratulations to Honee Hoculik, Susan Jones, and Kelly Norrils. They all competed in the Greg Moore Memorial Squash Tournament at Northficld in February.

o matter what the outcome of the division finals for the ice Warriors, one thing remains certain: Chris Kraemer is a true hero whose story deserves to be told. Chris’s tale begins two summcr’s ago. The Elimra native was working at a local tool and dye shop when there was a machine malfunction. The press hc was working on came down on his left hand, amputating his index finger and severely crushing the knuckle of his middle finger and thumb. Obviously, the accident came as a complete surprise to Chris. But since that tragic day, and through the five or six operations he has had since, he’s learned to deal with many difficulties that are a result of the accident. “I still have a lot of problems,” says Chris. “I can’t extend my middle finger back. When the press came down, it crushed my knuckle such that it doesn’t articulate very well anymore because it’s bone across bone.” Although his hand is not what it used to be, Chris has never allowed himself to think of it as a handicap. He has continued to work hard so that he can play hockey at

SPORTS

A ~regulzir the same level he always had. “It was a really rough season for me last year,” says Chris as he describes his first season with the injury. “I was fmstrated in what I couldn’t do any more as far as stick handling, but I learned to compensate in the way I do things.” Despite the injury last season, Chris NTas a key member of the Warriors success. Hockey wasn’t the only area that had to be adjusted in Chris’ life because of the accident. Everyday life became much different for Chris as he had to learn to deal with people’s reactions, people’s quqtions, and even more importantly their stares. “It’s kinda weird,” said Chris as he explained how people have reacted to him since the accident. “Most people don’t notice it at first. A lot of people just look at it and stare, others just come out and ask what happened. I don’t really mind explaining what happened; its been two years now and I’m not sclfconscious about it. Its something I cant really help.” “I get more annoyed when pcople I see on a daily or weekly basis ask me how my hand is everytime 1 see them! To me, that isn’t nccessary, that’s just people not using their head!” When most people would have

given up hockey altogether and felt sorry for themselves, Chris went on. H& retumcd to the Warriors that fall and practised with the team even though he was still in bandages from the various operations. “I think at the time of the accident, I had a lot of aspirations to continue my career, be it in Europe or in the minor leagues somewhere. I was never really thinking about a career in the NHL, but I had put so much time into hockey that I thought I’d at least make some money at it for a year or so.” “It alljust happened so fast and I’ve been involved in hockey so long that I don’t think I could have just set hockey aside and put it out of my life.” Chris says it was the support of his teammates and head coach Don McKee that made him not quit hockey but fight to keep it up. “Obviously I wasn’t what I used to be, but he (McKee) gave me a regular spot on the team. Tf he wouldn’t have given me that, I would never have had the confidence to continue with hockey.” With the support of his teammates and McKee, Chris did continue his hockey career and was able to make it through one of the toughest times in his life very successfully. “It’s taken me a long time to

Superman know what my limitations are and aren’t with my hand. There’s a lot of things that 1 used to be able to do that 1 can’t do anymore. So, instead, I try other things.” “I think other people think about my hand more than I do, and I don’t really think about it other than when people say something about it.” “1 don’t even think my teammates really think about it

anymore. Before, when I first started off, I’d miss a shot or bobble a pass and people wouldn’t really say much because they thought it was because of my hand. Now, people don’t really think about it as a handicap because they just don’t think about it!” AlthoughChris has triumphed, his story should never be forgotten. He is a real live hero and an inspiration to us all.

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion wl The Sadies & Suckerpunch Fric&, P+huat-y, 24th The Opera House by Brad Imprint

Hughes staff

E

Ivis is everywhere. Mojo Nixon is right. Eight hundrcd plcascd concert-goers witncsscd the rebirth of The King last Friday at The Opera House.

The 131~1~s Explosion was cxactly that. It was ;i violent eruption ol‘blues f&cd with a punk attitude. It’s amazing how they can sound like yesterday but not come off as dated. They make the pcrfcct subtle changes to bring blues music into the prcscnt. They started offwith some scIcctions tllat wcrc almost straight blues rockers. Gradually they built the energy and the crowd started to really get caught up in the music. Thcrc wcrcn’t many breaks butwccn songs as the band strived to keep up the manic pact. Then they lurched into some tunes from last year’s al bum QTLIII~C’. This album saw the band meld a lot of noise to the blues sound.

KABOOM!!...

Jon

Spencer,

Le Grarz~e

The Hlues Explosion is a three piece band that uses two guitars instead of a bass. This two prong4 attack provides some great noise. When the band wants to rock though, their riff’s fly through the air like darts. Guitarist Judah Bauer was cxccptional. Hc plays with trcmcndous intensity. He and Spencer mesh togcthcr as well live as they do recorded. Baucr also doubles as the harmonica player. During “Dang” hc made the harmonica absolutely scream. Russell Simins

Ormga.

keeps the pace on drums for the group. Hc is a fury. The kit he uses is the YN-IX one his father bought him in order to learn how to play. It’s very minimal with just a snare, a tom, a bass drum, and a couple of cymbals, yet he makes it sound better than anyone with a huge kit. Hc was given several opportunities to shine with some solos and he didn’t disappoint. The star of the show, however, was Jon Spcnccr himself. He shook, rattled, and rolled all over the stage.

He has a mesmerizing prcscncc on stage and the audience was always in his thrall. He becomes completely consumed by the music and lets it take him over. Spencer spares no energy-he grunts his lyrics with everything he has. The climax of the night was a medley of “Bellbottoms” and “Flavor.” The slick riffs of “Bellbottoms” sent the crowd into a complete frenzy. It was here that Spencer dropped his instrument and put on a show with the thcramin.

The theramin is a box with some dials and a couple of antennas poking out of it. I have no idea how it works but it produces some cool electronic pitches. During the medley Spencer milked the theramin for all it was worth. The band almost topped this performance with a scorching rendition of “Sweat” during the cncore. Alter the encore the crowd briskly made its way to the exits. The band snuck back on stage for some jamming for the roughly 300 or so who took their time leaving. The show was the best ten bucks anybody could have ever spent. The opening band, Suckerpunch, owed a lot to The I3lues Explosion’s brand of music. They’re (3 band from Toronto who play an updated version of rockabilly which is reminiscent of The Cramps. They put a lot of “umph” into their playing. ‘I‘h~ lead singer also featured i lot of Elvisian moves. The Sadics provided the lowlight for the night. They were a lull between the two storms that booker&d their performance. They played with little energy and appeared very wooden up on stage. The majority of their songs were moody instrumentals which didn’t energize the crowd at all. It didn’t help that The Blues Explosion opened with an instrumental that blew Thle Sadies off the stage. The Sadies would have been better staying off the stage on this evening, while the other two bands put on marvcllously, energetic shows.

ocicty is a nightmare for black pcoplc and Public Enemy’s Chuck D is the voice that scrvcs as its narration. Without control over their culture, society will remain a nightmare for blacks. And it is the false perception by blacks that they have control over their culture that helps foster the nightmare, said Chuck D in a speech at the University of Toronto last Monday, “We’ve got to rebuild our community because we don’t have one,” he told an audicncc of about 500 blacks and whites. ‘“Ninety percent of black entertainers have nonblack accountants. If rap is to educate people about black culture, blacks must have 100 percent control of the industry,” he said. The Prophet of Rage was in full effect when speaking on the subject of black culture. But for the most part, Chuck kept things laid

back and infi)rn;al. He kept the audience laughing with his constant poking at stcrcotypcs through his impressions of- “scluare” L+%itc people and black “gangstas.” Chuck contributes to Black History Month every year by do-

S

sent. “Jail culture, drug culture and gun cufture ain’t fly,” he said. “‘l‘hcrc is nothing fuckin’ fly about &d.” Chuck feels these three aspects arc not rcprescntative ofblack culture because black people have no control over them. Black peopledonotrun thejails

The casual atmosphere in the room was disrupted by Chuck whenever the topic turned to gangsta rappers and the “culture” they try to repre-

Chuck. “You have to think about what you say and what you do.” Chuck said that black rappers are constantly under the spotlight of the media, whic;h is looking for them to slip up so it c& exploit the negativity of the situation. “You can do everything right but the minute you slip, you’re O.J.” hc said. Chuck believes that rappers must be on their best behaviour all

of the time because tlL, a public magnifyihg glass. feels

“Intelligence will save your ass no matter where you’re at,” he said. “It’s what teaches you what will and won’t kill you.” Chuck is tired of black people being seen as nothing more than entertainers and athletes. He encourages black youths to go to college so they can become doctors and lawyers. 1 “Rappers aren’t q

FJiiiQbdiaty, to me Sue Johanson The Imprint htewiew by James Russell Imprint staff

Y

ou may know her as “Sex with Sue” but Sue Johanson is a walking sexual guide to anything you need to know about the subject. She visited Federation Hall this past Tuesday to answer questions about sex, and Imprint had the opportunity to speak with

females have. The myths that males have is that you, YOU ?ire responsible to bring your partner to a cataclysmic orgasm every time you have sex. And her myth is that if she doesn’t have an orgasm, than there’s something wrong with her and she is frigid. Myths: nice girls don’t touch their genitals, nice girls don’t look

1%X.

I guess the question is, how do you get into a life dealing with sex? (llrrq$s) Way back in 1969, I had a daughter bring a friend of hers home, who thought she was pregnant. She couldn’t go to her own mum, and I tried to find help for her and it was just awful. And this was ‘69. Abortion was i I legal in Canada. Birth control - t/~pill - could only bc used to regulate a menstrual cycle. We were not allowed to use the pill for birth control as such. That didn’t come ‘til’70, ‘7 I. So, Sex with Sue?!? I decided we’re gonna open at their genitals. Myths: nice girls a birth control clinic for kids in a do not tell their partner what they high school. And we did. would like.

his week I had the pleasure of speaking with Madame Quattorzc, the vocalist of Thrive. A great outfit from Toronto, they mix atmospheric goth with throbbing electronics to give a sound unlike anything you’ve heard bcfore. How about a rundown on the band’s history; how long have you been together? Thrive has been around since 1992, but Deane (keyboard/machinery guy) and I worked together for a number of years before that. Is it hard touring as a duet?

notice how the Pope has come around. This last summer, he said and this is the first time ever - that condoms could be used, and it was okay to use condoms for prevention of unplanned pregnancies and disease, emphasis on disease. Now that’s the first time ever that’s come out. He is forced (it’s not voluntary, believe me). How do I feel about the Pope’s stand on abortion? I really have a problem with any group of men (and the Catholic church is ALL men, there arc no women). The Vatican is the only state in the world, country in the world where there are no women and no children. So you really can’t expect to get balanced thought from there, from men who’ve never been married and who supposedly have never had intercourse. I rather doubt that. Although I really don’t like abortion, nonetheless, a person has a right to make a decision. Not me, I have no right to impose on anybody. You can’t interact with everyone in the audience on a one on one basis, so what sort of general tips do you have? What I would be saying is to have self concept, self esteem. Feel good enough about yourself. To say, “Hey woah, wait a minute, I’m scared, I’m really scared. What are we going to do about birth control? What are we going to do about disease? I don’t want to get a reputation. I have the idea that virginity is important to me, I don’t want to have sex till I get married. You’ve oat a reputation on this campus as Eeing vast, loose, and easy, and I don’t want that reputation.” Do you ever fmd yourself staying in touch with the younger generation, watching stuff like Beverly Hilk 9021 U? Now is Bevrrl?/ Hills 90210 a good indicator of what teenage life is like today? And when was the last time you saw females on campus walking around with not a hair out of place‘? And lipstick on.

after walking hirty years away from his family, an older n&r do well tries to make amends with his son and now grandson. Though he has spent most ofhis life in the small town of North Bath in New York state, his simple yet optimistic approach to living continues to help him through the many difficulties he faces. Paul Newman plays Donald Sullivan, better known as Sully. Believing in hard work and helping others, even though he doesn’t have much himself, he has an easygoing dcmeanour that grows on people. Taking everything in his stride, he rarely gets upset despite his frequent runins with his boss and the lclcal police+ While trying to relate to his own children, he too has to deal with the memories of his own father. Jessica Tandy is Mrs. Beryl, Sully’s downstairs landlady and former grade eight teacher. I&spite his failings, she still believes and hopes that he will one day change his ways. She greatly values their friendship, which annoys her bank manager son. A tired and drawn performance on Tandy’s part, the role was one of her last. The picture is dedicated to her memory.

The film is an adaptation of Richard Russo’s novel, and most ofthe footage was shot in scvcral towns throughoutNew York state. A chilly atmosphere is created by the winter photography. Dull overcast skies, with dark trees and buildings, sttongly emphasize the crisp coldness of the snow. North Bath’s industrial nature is shown by the tiny ins&rick homes, chainlink fences, Some forgotten and and old factories. neglected Victorian homes are also part of the landscape. A few colours are found in the neon and Christmas lights, as well as Mrs. Bcryl’s living room. The rich, dark wood panclling and banisters, lit by soEt yellow lights and antique wallpaper, create the only warm and inviting place in the entire movie. The COZY tick of a clock is often heard. The London Metropolitan and Philharmonic Orchestras provide most of the film’s music, which is arranged by Howard Shore.

inally, a guidebook that not only provides for some humourous insight into the mating rituals of men and women, but one that outright mocks the sensitive issues around sex. It’s all bollocks! But once you get past that, this “guidebook pretty hilarious. The first thing that quickly notice is the inc bias towards women, or the incredible bias agains It’s not about “male bas though. The malt authors can attest to that, not to mention the degree of sarcasm that is rampant throughout. If i t were any slogan that is most representative of the W’s, it would have to be “Men are pigs.” So with that in mind, this supposed oflcial dictionary takes its slap at men, which will be satisfying for feminists, but still give men a wee bit of dignity in that the sarcasm is literally dripping from the pages. So what’s it about? Basically, definitions that cover everything from the beginning flirts with your potential prospect, to being the significant other. The definitions aren’t exactly in the Oxford tradition, but generally rely on quotes from none other than Ms. magazine, Esquire, numerous feminist mags, and a slew of other “reliable” sources. It’s-not surprising, then, that a man is defined

as a “potential rapist,” a penis as a “dildo substitute,” and a fiancee as a “premarital slave.” However, these are only some of the mildly humourous observances, Complimenting thcsc definitions arc comic etchings and pictures that are used as great examples to clarify any misconceptions. The picture of U.N. secretary-general Boutros Boutros-Ghali with “potential rapist” attached to it definitely clarifies the definition that “all living males who have reached the age of puberty” are potential rapists. The pictures of Hillary Clinton as

ing being “womon” of course] to “wimyn,” “womyn,” “wofem,” “womban, ” “wombmoon,” and a slew of others. All could be equally offensive if taken the wrong way, I suppose, but in a collection with equally silly definitions, one can’t be too irate. Is this the attitude ofthe nineties though? Have sex and dating got to the point where abstinence is the only reliable method of not landing yourself in court with rape allegations against you? This book would suggest that’s the case. So if you’re between relationships and on the prowl, this will give you something to think about. If you’re kneedeep in one already, brushing up on your vocab will at least better your chances at keeping the one you love.

Rhinos into Volcano The Rhinos CD Release Party at the Volcmo Saturday February, 25 by Jodi Imprint

Carbert staff

fyour idea ofcxcitcmcnt is fighting your way to a table of vcggics and dip, while a herd of people crowd inside one room making smal I talk and sipping their cclcbrrltional drinks, then go home and cry on your big pillow if you mlsscd out on the prcconccrt cd release party. Howcvcr if you happened to think that you had something bcttcr to do at another club on Saturday night, chances arc, you were wrong. The Rhinos have already toured Canada twelve times and they are getting ready for number thirteen. This time around Danny Michel and Mike Blanchard, who share lead vocals and guitar, won’t have to worry about sharing the bass parts anymore. They have a new member to the band Syd (Ryan) Hovinga who is now their official bass player. Even though Danny admits that “Syd isn’t a bass player either,” he does a damn great job. Rob Saturday was the first time I heard the Rhinos play. Danny’s vocals rcmindcd MC of Martin Ticlli’s from the Rhcostatics. Which rcmindcd me of the first time I heard the Rhcostatics and T thought of David Bowie. However, after Iistcning to both of these bands and their recordings I can see how they can not be slotted into one catagoty, and that cvcn though Bowie may have influcnccd their work he is not a seminal influence. For example, Mike writes many lyrics and he likes Shoncn Knife. Stcvc who likes the Smiths has begun to COwrilc sonic lyrics as well. The largest contrast to Danny, who is a sclI‘-taught musician, is Rob Carli, who was playing sax on Saturday. Hc is a classically trained musicain and writes most of the Rhinos’ music. He played the woodwinds and piano on Flying as

gcthcr that sounds great and highly entertaining. Danny, the charismatic focal point ofthe band, was the first Rhino to appear on stage. Doused in thick red light singing “Fantastic,“Danny captivated the full house with his warm “buck naked emotions.” His stage presence is so hypnotic that it demands attention. There is a special communication that takes place between the Rhinos and their audience through Danny’s subtle body language and facial cxprcssions. It is his positive cncrgy and cnthusiasm which makes the front of the stage the only place to bc at their concerts. These guys are definitciy a band that has to be seen I ivc. The sound quality was excellent, the songs were solid and the technique seemed so fresh that it was like

witnessing the creation of these songs and not just the mere rcgurgitation of exhausted notes from memory. During their performance Elaine Sccord from the band Squirm, and Paul McLeod from the opening band Six Months, joined the Rhinos on stage to sing back up vocals on a really great song off ofF&ing entitled “The God and Girl.” Even though Danny feels that the Rhinos “take a laid back approach to an audience” so as not to intimidate them, they are in no way a band that is in the background of music today. Since their first cd release in 93, entitled Fz’shl’ng in theFmmtai~t ~fY~tlth they have been gaining a faithful following all over Canada. Their video release off ofthat album “A Fantastic Place To Be” became a regular on MuchMusic’s RSVP and the single went to number 17 as far across Canada as Vancouver. The two upcoming single rcleases off ofFlying are: “Throw Me Away” a slow stripped to the bones of emotion song and “Flying” a fast upbeat inspirational one. In concert both of these songs were very well received and many people were singing along, even though today was most likely the first day they have heard these songs. The Rhinos seemed to have a great time and seemed to feed off of the energy from the crowd. They are a great band to see live and I suggest going to see them on their 199.5 tour, not just because next year you may not be able to see them preforming in such an intimate setting, but just because they arc a wonderfill band that are fantastic to see.

na BradFraserplay, a heterosexual couple behaving like they’re madly in love tells you there’s trouble ahead. In a Brad Fraser play, a straight guy declaring himself unintcrested in men lets you know he’s in for a lewd awakening. Several years after Unidentified Human Rem&m and the True Nuture elf Love, Fraser has penned Poor &per Mun, and much of it is his usual territory: nudity, simulated sex, drug-taking, night-clubbing, bi-sexuality, loneliness, urban alienation. Heuses the metaphor of the comic book Superman (particularly the issue where he was killed off) to sures that the show holds its centre, explore myths about male invulnerand that the ripples instigated by ability, love, and friendship.

steered around obstacles and towards important sights, creating such magic moments as when two naked men thrashing around in bed seem to be instantly replaced by a wife waking up in a cold sweat. Fraser described this technique in Tlze Financial Post as “my shattered video of secing, which is the voice of many people of my generation growing up on TV and MTV.” It is vital to Fraser that he be current and topical. He told eye “I was in London recently and those people aren’t directors. They’re taxidermists! No one is doing anything about right now.. .” He wants to bring his own generation into the theatre. Unfortunately, that’s his flaw. Fraser’s glib, urbane characters are modem cousins of Oscar Wilde and Noel Coward’s fictions, and they share a hidden sexual bonfire with Tennessee Williams’ figures, but they’re not memorable. Violet and Matt, the naive restaurateurs, are purposely drawn as pxt ofthe mass. Yet even the more eccentric Kryla, Shannon, and David are scarcely vivid or unique. Fraser has too perfectly represented his generation; the people he writes don’t breathe, they’re too general. The way their self-conscious repartee dissolves into soul-baring is awfully formulaic. Then there are all those pop culture references. They severely limit the play. What’s Poor Sqwr M&s shelf life going to be? An easy laugh of recognition now does not artistic longevity make And speaking of didactic, the Superman metaphor smacks too much of a writer’s metaphor. Fraser is fond of hanging his scripts on a concept (witness the serial killerand the answcring machine messages in Remains) and this time it’s the comic book: Lucas’ rectangular screens Orbison! flash captions thatreveal characters’ thoughts when their lines claim something else--words like “life,” “art,” “love, ” “loneliness” are bandied about. Obviously, the line Fraser treads between wit or profundity and sermonizing is very frayed indeed. Now, in order to provoke questions as to how good it really is, Poor Super Man has to be above average, and it is. The script whizzes

This band, from jolly 01’ London England, can be categorized as one of those dime-a-dozen punk bands. They are earnest in their punk intentions but fail to deliver much mcmorablc music. The production gives the band a thick, full sound. In particular the nice heavy bass isn’t overwhelming to the listener. The vocals are very deep in the mix. While the lyrics arc audible they arc barely intelligible. They are complete throwaways. The guitars are right in your face. Sometimes that works , and sometimes it doesn’t. On a standout track like “Blown Away” the guitars are the hook in this tremendous sonic assault. This song just sounds huge. I repeated this track several times each time I listened to the album. However none of the other seven songs comes off like this one. On the rest of the songs the

Swans have been in existence since the early eighties, but this record is their first one on Invisible It adds a certain diversity to the pounding “industrial” thrash that has been the lifeblood of the label, characterized by such bands as Pigfacc and Evil Mothers. The sound of this album may bc different, but it contains many of the same ingredients as other Invisible efforts. The leader of Swans, Michael Gira, contributed to the latest Pigfacc album. And Martin Atkins,ofPigface/PIL/Killing Joke fame, and Bill Ricflin, of Ministry andThe Revolting Cocks, lend their musical edge to this work. That all said, Swans have succeeded in coming UD with an album

guitars just fail to catch my ear. The trouble is that the band is relying on the guitar parts to be the effect that grabs the listener. Some songs do get salvaged by their quick beats such as 73lah Blah Blah”and”Skin Deep.” The other songs slip by without much notice. It sounds as if the band just loses its concentration for most of the album. Their intensity comes and goes. Now ifthc band can’t pay attention to the whole album the listener is less likely to do so. This is the biggest problem. The record clocks in under 25 minutes yet I had to consciously pay attention to the music or my mind would just wander. The group’s playing is capable but no member of the band stands out as a master musician. This really hurts the group as they can’t recoup their losses with some magnificent instrument work. The final song, “Raise Your Glass,” does recapture your attention with its great beat and a slick chorus melody. You’ll find yourself humming this tune after the album is done but it’s a case of too little too late.

worthy of recognition. With sixteen songs, and a length of somewhere around an hour, it has plenty of time to create the atmosphere it desires. This atmosphere is a desolate one, leaving the listener feeling “happily” empty. The songs arc characterized by muffled, tranceI ike drumming and slow vocals that are closer to chants than anything else. “She Lives” and “Blood Promise” sound like Nick Cave on depressants ( ???) and “In,” the opening track, creates an aura of a lifeless wasteland, perfect for those who wish to enter. This description tends to make the album sound excessively depressing, but it isn’t. When I played this album for a friend (who I must give credit to, or she will kill me,) she said

that

it was the

of

album that “you would listen to if didn’t want to sleep, but knew it was time to go to bed.” It may groan more than it grinds, but it is never dull. Perfect. I always have trouble getting to sleep.

sound far better than Steve Albini ever did. His huge, sonic sort of style is set against the Cave-like atmospherics, and the combination is claustrophobic in many places, but totally enthralling. It opens, like Rid of Me, with the title track, which turns out to be a similarly minded tale of obsession. Steeped in bluesy guitar licks and slightly distorted vocals, Polly’s willing to go to the ends of the earth “I’ve lain with thedevil/cursed God above.” Hammond organ comes in midway through, lending a furthur dcsolatc tone to the work. “Meet Za Monsta” and “Long Snake Moan” show the Flood influence most prominently. The former uses gutbucket drums and grunting riffs that complement the quiet nature of the following “Working For the Man .” This song, like the single “Down By the Water,” propels itself on maracca backbeats, while Polly seemingly whispers in our collective ears to chilling effect. “Send His Love to Me” is almost Spanish flamenco in sound, with weird synthy effects thrown in for good measure. “C’mon Billy” is simple and acoustic, with Polly

Krafchick staff

Polly Jean Harvey is screwed up. No question. She shuts herself up in her hometown in the foggy English countryside, talking to no one of what’s on her mind, preferring instead to play Scrabble with her brother or take care of her garden. She’s staying away from doing many interviews this time around, because she can’t handle the drain it pIaces on her psyche. And she NEVER lets us in on what her lyrics mean. But ultimately it matters little, since this mind is producing one of the best bodies of work of any artist this decade, a reputation that only grows more with To Bring You My Love. Apparently not content with letting her sound grow stale, Polly has completely revamped her style andmood. This time heavy makeup, a satin dress, and soft red and green on the cover complement a quiet, burning, extrcmcly intcnsc collcction of songs. The big guitars and thrashy sound are all but gone; there’s no cracking single like “Sheela-Na-Gig” or “50 ft. Queenie” in here. W%at we get instead is her most cohesive and whole album to date, one song compelling the listener to hear the next through its entire length. Many influences are gathered together and put through the Polly Harvey treatment. The usual Stones and Dylan feeling is there, but now it’s tempered by her take on Nick Cave and Curve. The latter is de& nitely attributable to production by Flood, who turns out to suit Polly’s

Balancing their new, “serious” look with the same power chords of their pre-sammy

days,

The lineup has0 changed lately, and neither has the sound. Van Halen still wails away with a solid wall of noise, Sammy’s vocals are still a poor second to Eddy’s guitar riffs and Michael and Alex’s beats and riffs are still slightly catchy (although a poor outing even for them). This is basitally a rehash ofFor Udawfuf Cur-

pleading to her lover to stay for her, as well as her child; it’s obviously not a personal experience for her, but her voice and delivery make this irrelevant. Ah that voice. It’s as heartfelt as it has ever been here, rightfully given central place in the mix much of the time. Though as always the words are cryptic (“Teclo your day, will send me to my grave.” Hmm...) thcycryout urgcncy,and the themes ofspiritual crisis and crushing hcartache come through dcspitc the specifics of the situation. From yells and screams on the mercilessly punishing “Long Snake Moan,” to the seduction of “Working For the Man,” to the low groan of “1 Think I’m a Mother” Ms. Harvey’s voice is a conduit of pain and often of uniquely female introspection. This album may alienate a lot of people, being a harrowing trip for much of the time. Yet it seems Polly’s world can be no other way, and for our part we can only watch as she moves on to some other equally brilliant pIateau of thought. Polly Harvey is screwed up,..and the world’s a better place for it.

rzalk’no~~~&e, the album that gave Pepsi and the world “Right Here, Right Now.” But unfortunately the band continued a trend begun right after EW: they’ve lost the sex, drugs, andfilPz that made them great. Sure, they’ve put out some great tunes since then, but nothing like they did when the Hormone Himself, David Lee Roth, was their frontman. The closest thing to a half decent song is “The Seventh Seal,” which is a far cry from being either original or good. ‘*The Seventh Seal” is serious. With lyrics like “Lord don’t let me drown, drown, drown/ in mother earth’s soul, yet” and “broken now I can’t help but feel/ someone cracked the scvcnth seal,” what the song is serious ahout is a bit hard to figure. There isn’t a single song about just plain fucking, or getting high, or any of the things that Van Halen used to do really well. Instead there are lots of shitty ballads and introspective navel gazing. They seem to be operating on the principle of sticking to what you know, except they lorgot what they didbest:,have fun. This album isn’t fun; it’s Serious. And with nothing new to offer, forgetting the best part of their chemistry was a big mistake.

Friday, March 3, 1995

by Dave Fisher special to Imprint As whacked-out an inspiration as I’ve heard in months, The 7’1~~‘s suprcmo-suprcmo nutcasc Matt Johnson seems to have hit writer’s block and decided to rclcasc the awfully titled Hun&l, Plrr&,rj, a tribute album comprised exclusively of songs penned by the late country music genius Hank Williams. First off, I should mention that T’m in no way a fan ofThc The; 1 am, howcvcr, a big fan ofWilliams, so the whole prospect ofJohnson’s tribute scared me. As loathe as 1 am to admit it, rhc package isn’t nearly as tcrriblc as I’d initially cxpcctcd. I’vcalwaysfcltthat(othcrthan the occasionai charitable cause)

thcrc arc only two rcusons that songs by other artists should cvcr be covcrud: to rcscuc great sorlgs fi-om obscurity (such as, say, Primal Scream’s cover of Koky Elrikson’s “Slip Inside This House”), or to expand upon a comparatively wcllknown sor~g and crcatc something cntircly fresh (like Jimi Hcndrix’s version of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower”). ‘1‘0 his crcdi t, Johnson has done a bit of both with the Williams catalog. Naturally, a lot of Williams’ songs have become American standards, but Johnson (a Brit) has choscn material that’s a good mix of both obvious (“Hanky Tonkin’,““I Saw the Light,” “Your Cheatin’ Heart,” etc.) and lesser known (.“If You’11 Bc A Baby To Me,” “I Can’t Escape From You,” etc.). Even bcttcr, Johnson steered clear of even attempting to duplicate the songs as they were originally recorded. On the downside, all the Hank Williams lyrics in the world aren’t

ARTS going to save the exercise from sounding like anything but The The songs when they’re given The The arrangements, which is, I suppose, great if you’re a Matt Johnson junkie. As mentioned, I’m not. Nevertheless, having heard countless covers of Hank Williams material by countless artists that suffered terribly in comparison (only heroin-casualty Lowell George’s cover of “Lonesome Whistle” comes anywhere close to the power of the original), I can say that Hunkl; funky doesn’t fare any worse than most. As much as the intent of all this is admirable, the song selection good and the execution surprisingly strong, the bottom line is that (much as he likes to identify otherwise) Matt Johnson is no Hank Williams. thnhy Panhy, then, is only recommended to The The fans and the exceedingly curious. As an additional warning, the liner notes promise that Hunky furrky “is the first in an occasi’onal scrics of albums celebrating the great singer/songwriters,” so get ready for Matt Johnson’s grave excavation of Robert Johnson in the not-too-distant future.

Matt Johnson: Hank Williams or Hank Kingsley

Robertson to Imprint

Backin 1993,acouplcofthings occurred to Toronto’s Change of Heart that left many wondering if they would carry on. First, drummer GIenn Milchem left to join Blue Rodeo, then percussionist Mike Armstrong Ieft to join King Cobb Steelie, and fmally bassist Rob ‘Taylor decided to call it quits. While this turn ofcvents would havespelledtheendformanybands, this was not the case for guitarist and founding Change of Heart member Ian Blurton. He forged ahead by recruiting John Borra, John Richardson and Bernard Maiezza and went on to record the latest album in the Change of Heart

by Robert Jackson special to Imprint

Country hunk Clint Black sports his fifth album, One E&otion, with ten tunes new tunes. Eversmiling, Clint’s writing skills have matured since ‘89, without losing a great country sound. His popularity is highly due to his ability to write or co-write his music, not to mention sentiments about his being one of the gentlemen in new country music. The first single from the album is “Untanglin’ My Mind,” which

discography, Tummysuckle. Recorded at Chemical Sound, Tumvnysuckie moves away from the environmental themes prevalent on the band’s last album SntiEe, and deals with loss in its themes. Those expecting the cellos, horns and heavy percussion found on Smik will be disappointed. In their plaice is a heavier Change of Heart sound filled with a great deal of guitar overdubs. The songs are generally shorter and more in your face than those found on previous releases, the 18 minute finale “Mardi Gras Rringdown” being the exception whcrc the band gets back to experimenting. While still in search of a major record label deal which Ian Blurton says dloesn’t really matter, Tummysuckle will at the very least continue to expand the already strong show of support which Change of Heart receive throughout the country. Clint co-wrote with country legend Merle Haggard. With a cryin’ steel guitaradding a true touch to Black’s heart-rending lyrics, this is what country music is about. “One Emotion” is a thoughtprovoking song of life and love, followed up by “A Change Tn The Air,” both songs that definitely sound better when drunk. The last selection, a ballad entitled You Made Me Feel,” is a tribute to his new wife, Lisa Hartman, which tells a story of the good things that happen when a lonely man finds a good woman. This1 is the type of CD I just love to take in the car (if I had one) and drive, and no need to fast-forward, it’s just forty-five minutes of good music and great lyrics.
