Assault on ‘Safety Van by Maureen Ra special to Imprint
n October 24, a lone male patron on the Safety Van reached from behind the driver’s seat and groped her, fondling her breasts. The driver told him to stop and directed him to leave the van, which he did. She put the incident out of her n&d and continued driving. The next day, after reporting the assault to Campus Police and enduring intense questioning about the details of the assault, her emotional detachment ended. The next time she drove the Safery Van, she was scared. A friend rode along with her for support. The man is described as a white male with short brown hair, a muscular build and a blue coat. The driver had neither seen nor driven the man anywhere before. This is the first assault to occur on the Safety Van. Many who have heard about the incident are still reeling from the shock that it happened at all. “Who can you trust?’ many have asked, in response to the assault. ?he Safety Van is aLfree service that offers a safe ride home to all faculty, students and staffwith women receiving priority. It is clearly disturbing that a service providing safetv to others has been a backdrop for the assault of an empioyee offering that service of sai‘ety. , The Safety Van was established in January 1986, by the Federation of Students and a group of Planning students after the murder of third year Planning student Shelly Ellison. Ellison was murdered while jogging in Victoria Park in November of 1985. SOMY Flanagan, then Federation of Students President, was quoted in the January 1986 issue of Imprint referring to the three purposes of the Safety Van. According to Flanagan, these were : “a safe ride home for women, transportation for Bombshelter and Fed Hall patrons who have been drinking, and as a general convenience to students.” The latter
two are no longer priorities of the Safety Van. The focus has been and continues to be women’s safety. N&v
To improve the safety services of the van, four new policies have been put in place. First, to receive a pass,ALL patrons must now show their Watcards and have their

name and ID number entered in a log book. Second, men remain a second priority and must wait until it is determined that there are seatsavailable for them. Only when this is determined, and after showing their ID and being written into the log, can men receive a pass. Third, it has been advised by Campus Police that people who are not tiiliated with UW not have accessto the Safety Van, unless accompanied by someone afIiliated with U-W, vouching for the& This is now one of the new policies that have been in place since this past Monday.
allowing previous protests in London, Hamilton, titchener-Waterloo and Peterborough, the Metro Days of Action paralyzed most of Toronto’s downtown area this past Friday and Saturday. Disgruntled and frustrated with Mike Harris’ Tories and their slash-and-cut campaign aimed at shrinking public spending by nine billion dollars, d coalition of unions and social groups staged the two-day protest. Protest organizers intended to shut down most public services in downtown Toronto, including public &nsit. In spite of a last minute court injunction to prevent picketing, most of Toronto’s transit system remained on ice on Friday, but continued its services on Saturday.

Saturday’s massive group of protesters reflected the diversity of people directly affected by the government cuts. Although dominated by throngs of teachers, steelworkers and autoworkers, various other groups such as environmentalists, gay rights activists, Jesuits and artists took to the streets offoronto. Whil6 CAW president Buzz Hargrove claimed the rally to be ‘%he most massive showing of social solidarity I have ever seen”, off&l estimates of the number of protesters varied largely. Police officials initially estimated 30,000, a rather ridiculous figure considering that approximately 50,000 people were shuttled in on 1120 chartered buses, some from asfar asNorth Bay. Subsequently, the police corrected their official estimate to . continued l photos

Lastly, Columbia Lake, the Phillip Street Townhouses and Co-ops, University Tower, and Married Student Apartments are no longer priorities of the Safety Van route, These housing areas are covered. by Walksafe and will no longer be overlapped by the van during busy runs, as people living outside the Walksafe route have been turned away and thus have had no means of a stie way home. Along with these new policies is the beginning of a discussion between the Federation of Students, Campus Police and the Safety Van coordinator. The main focus of this discussion is whether the Safety Van would provide more safety to patrons and drivers under the auspices of Campus Police. At the centre of this discussion is what is best for the UW community. After meeting with the Federation of Students executive, Julie Primeau, the current Vice-President Internal, stated that the Fed executive are shocked and upset by this assault, and that they are prioritizing the Safety Van to ensure the safety of the drivers.
aterloo Regional Police have arrested a man who they suspect is responsible for a series of assaults on women on the University of Waterloo campus and nearby pathways. Twenty-seven year old Edgardo Espti has been charged with five counts of sexual assault. He was remanded i&o custody on Wednesday and was to attend a bail hearing yesterday. The assaults occurred between August 14 and September 28 and followed a similar pattern where the assailant would ride toward the victim on an older style ten speed bicycle and then grab or fondle her. UW Police Constable Brent MacKenzie recognized Esparza from the descriptions received from victims and remembered dealing with such on a previous occasion. Mackenzie gave Esparza’s name to Waterloo Regional Police. In 1991, Esparza was banned from University ofWater prop- a erty for strange behaviour, He had applied to Waterloo in the past He must actuaUy look Jike thh and was not accepted.

75,000. Protest organizers on the other hand counted many more participants - between 250,000 and 300,000 - and declared the Metro Days of Action the largest protest in the history of Canada. Most of Saturdays protesters gathered in a park by Lakeshore Boulevard. Various participatig unions distributed flags, signs, hats, T-shirts and propaganda literature. Several speakers, including Bu.zz Hargrove (CAW) and Sid Ryan (CUPE), did their best to motivate the arriving masses. Several musical presentations included an enthusiastic performance by Tom Wilson, Lead singer of Junkhouse, who let the attentive crowd know that he was there “to kick Mike Harris’ pompous aSS.”
Due to the continuous streti of arriving protesters, the actual march was delayed by several hours. By the time the tail of the crowd hit the street, many of the protesters had spent more than three somewhat frustrating hours standing around. Organizers tried to maintain the protesters’ morale, but slogans like “Hey Mike, hey Mike, how about a general strike..? did little to that effect. The rousing rhetoric continuedwith”HeyHarris, hey Harris, we% turn this into Paris,” but the actual march bore little resemblance to the historical storm of the Bastille. Apart from some minor s&es on’ Friday and early Saturday, the tone of the protest was extremely peacefLl. When the march passed the Metro Convention Centre and reached Queen’s Park, heavily armoured
cops actually seemed to outnumber the trail of protesters and most cops seemed to have more difliculty staying awake than controlling the crowd. As the sign-waving masses gathered in front of the Ontario Legislature, they were once again treated to numerous speeches by union leaders and social acti&ts. Performances by Bruce Cockburn and Billy Bragg were especially well received by the increasingly tiring crowd. At the conclusion of the rally, organizers claimed moral victory and declared the protest an overwhelming success’.Plans for similar protests are already in the works for Wiidsor andottawa andsome of the union leaders, led by Buzz Hargrove, -are even considering a province-wide or nation-wide strike.

f you ever pass by Needles Hall you’ll notice there’s a lot of students all dressed up for job interviews, These individuals are hoping to gain some valuable experience and contacts for their future. Although the job market has suffered from the recession, that is no reason to lose hope in * becoming hired. The graph (displayed on page 6) shows the first round placement rates for the years 1988 through 1993. The graph shows a rather obvious decline in the
first round placement rate. This decline reflects the fact that a recession occured in 199 I. As well, the placement rate has not recovered particularly well. This again reflects the somewhat sluggish growth of the economy after the recession. The key to remember here is that while the first round placement rates may be low, the overall placement rates are high (see following table). This reflects the large number of jobs available during second rounds. Many employers miss the September 25 deadline for inclusion * continued
ReSIRCulation by Heather Calder Coordinatm, Student Issues Resource Centre
ou have all read about the SIRC several times, thanks to my esteemed colleague Julie Primeau. But somehow I think that people don’t really know what it is. To begin at the beginning, the Student Issues Resource Centre (SIRC) was set up to give you access to information that you need. Student issues are defined asnon-academic, non-administrative issues - my brochure includes the following: harassment, discrimination,, native issues, diversity, men’s and women’s issues, lesbian/gay/bisexual/ transgendered issues, sexuality, sexual assault, dating and family violence, environmental issues, eating disorders, safer sex and social justice. The idea is not to duplicate all of the wonderful services that exist in the university - iike Health Services, the Womyn’s Centre, GLLOW, Counselling Services, the Office of Ethical Behaviour and Human Rights, the Legal Resources office, WPIRG, and other similarly valuable information/advice sources. The idea is to have a centralized area at which you can find out that these sexvices exist. The SIRC is like the Turnkey Desk of student issues, although unlike the turnkeys, I can’t know everything. What I can do is help you fmd the people who can answer your questions. Here’s a good example of the way the SIRC works: you come to me with a question about pregnancy counsehg. Say that you are doing a project on the various issuesinvolved in unplanned pregnancies. I would give you the information, in the form of pamphlets and books, that I have. Then I would let you know that you can talk to Linda Grant at Health Services about this, and that the Health Resource Centre in the Health and Stiety building
has information. I would also give you the telephone numbers of Birthright (a pro-life organization) and Planned Parenthood (a pro-choice organization). You would receive information from me in a non-biased, non-judgemental fashion, and could do the research with all of those sources. The SIRC is available for information about personal issues as well. As the coordinator, I would respect the fact that you need confidential assistance. I would still offer you the range of information in the above fashionAl of the options that you need to make your own decisions. I have a list of contacts and organizations all over the province, and in some cases across the country, in case,vou want to access the experts’ in your home town. Sometimes you might feel embarrassed to ask about your personal questions. Well, part of the job of the SIRC is to help make everyone aware of the issues that face you and others. We do this by organizing awareness campaigns about AIDS, breast cancer, family violence, eating disorders, and discrimination. We also produce posters and pamphlets, hold workshops, show movies and do everything that we can think of to keep you interested and informed about student issues. Your concerns are important to me, and to the Federation of Students. You may not always need help, but you can be sure that we are here if you do. No matter what you need to know or need help with, we are here to make sure that you get all of the information and opportunities that you deserve as a student at U-W. It’s aseasy as making a phone call: Heather, SIRC at x6331; Julie, VP Internal at x3780; Kelly, VP Education at x2340; Tori, VP Admin. and Finance at x3880; and last but by no means least Mario, President at x2478.

in first rounds, and so must wait until second rounds. So, if you miss out in first rounds, there are lots of quality jobs that are still available irk second rounds. Afiurther observation that can be made from the above graph is that there is a decline in the rate of success of employment during each summer t&m. This decline occurs as students seeking work in the summer are competing against students from all of the universities in Canada, thus making job tiding more difficult. Obviously, ifyou want to increase your odds of employment, it might be a good idea to work in the winter or fall terms, when most other students aren’t taking up room in the workplace, This isn’t necessarily always realistic though so other strategies such as returning to a previous employer could be utilized. The following table shows the average placement rates for the iast three terms. Please note that for Winter 1997, the co-op system is still currently working. The number here reflects those students whoare returning to preVious employers or who have found their own jobs. j-W *^_A-

Kumar, again ity the poor administration here at UW. Former professor Sehdev Kumar ccharassed” (read: assaulted) twi female students on class field trips and had an em-marital a.@&-with a third, The university admits that they know this much. His actions were Clearly those of a man with such weak moral standards and utter contempt for his own students that one is forced to conclude that: he has no place at this, or any other, university. This much must be obvious to those even mildly acquainted with the case, let alone individuals such as the Dean of Environ.me&l Studies Jeanne Kay and UW President James Downey, And yet they just couldn’t get rid of him. Rather than currently stiering some sort of punishment, Kumar took an early retirement package from the university and as a result, subsists on money from an institution for which he clearly had no respect. His punishment of six months’ salary (seemingly due to a secretive, byzantine policy regarding \ the discipline of tenured professors) was disgusting to some, and inadequate to all except Dr. James Downey. Despite Dean Kay’s admonishing letter to Ima printthis week, she was among those unhappy with Dr. Downey’s decision in 1995. Kay recommended dismissal and.&er Downey’s decision, stated UI put a lot of care and thought into the cse before I made my decision to initiate dismissal proceedings, and I stand by my decision,” Nonetheless, Kay% letter (see “Kuxnar Ciarification” in the Forum section) this week raises some questions about our coverage and I feel compelled to respond: specifically to her complaints regarding Imprint’s supposed allusions to a “cover up” tid the issue of the relevance of Kuma.13 activities off campus to his duties here. Regarding the supposed attempt to imply that Dr. Downey and Dr. Lerner were involved in some scheme co ‘cover up” previous charges, it is s&l?cient to note that it is Dr. Kay who in fact has raised that issue, not Imprint. The more intriguing of Kay’s points is her emphatic reminder that Y?rofessor Sally Lerner, who was Chair of ERS in 1995, noted then that she was unaware of prior allegations of harassment against Dr. Kumaron campti~, a critic;ll distinction in her wibgness to return Dr. Kumar to classroom teaching, with no overseas field trip components, following his suspension.” (emphasis, Kay’s). Now obviously, professors can commit certain acts off campus that affect their standing on campus. For example, UW professor Adrian Bondy was fired last year for teaching Combinatorics and Optimization courses in France without the university’s knowledge. So there are, indeed, certain acts which the university deems c6mpletely unacceptable behaviour for professors. I guess grabbing the breasts of female students on a field trip sanctioned by the university and then on another field trip years later just doesn’t f;lil into that category. Perhaps Kay could explain how this falls into her understanding of the principles of natural justice. Kay’s response is the natural instinct of someone finding out that their dirty laundry has been aired in public. We can hardly blame her for trying to 5&r~ the matter so as to demonstrate that the university3 course of action was, of course, the correct: one, Save it. Jeanne Kay was right in recommending Kumar’s dismissal Iast year, just as she is right to question Imprint’s coverage to ensure the utmost accuracy. But, instead of taking cheap shots at Imprint for typos, perhaps Kay should be joining students in asking questions about how this whole sad chapter was handled instead of resorting to the position of an administrative apologist.

that got them through things you and I will never have to experience. They experienced severe culture shock and, at times, total alienation. They raised &m&s, held down jobs, participated in community activities, and went &church on Sunday. Those are the feminists you are alienating, those are the women I am proud of.
couldn’t attend. A good idea, but a boring redundant one. Imprint’s most boobish decision was to slap a review of Marilyn Manson on its front page. Gee, I wonder if the decision had anything to do with the author being the President of the Board of Directors, Arts Editor and a distributor. This is not a letter slamming Marilyn Mansonenjoy their psuedo-satanism antics-this is a letter slamming Imprint for its crappy entertainment journalism. I’m one of a minority of students at Waterloo who listens to Manson, but I recognize my taste in music has nothing to do with student life. Seriously, if I want to read about a show in Toronto, I pick up a Toronto entertainment magazine. VVhen I read Imprint, I expect to read about iocal shows. The .only bands worthy of frontpage status in Imprint are bands which play on campus or music events related to campus l&e. Reviews of past music events, especially out-of-town events, should be limited to a few paragraphs. And, hey, here’s an idea; why not interview t&e band befwc the show (and not in that crappy Q & A style) so I can decide whether I want to attend the event. Unless Imprint’s Arts St&steps into the journalism time machine and sets the switch to “relevant time frame,” they perpetuate the myth that entertainment has no place in newpapers.
No lines for religion To the Editw, I am sick and tired that every single time a woman writes a column dedicated to women and our causes, religion is always slandered. I am a woman, I am a Catholic and I am proud of both. Now, Miss Melissa MacDonald, you may quiver. I enjoyed reading most of your column. It dismissed many untruths about feminism. It was not a ranting piece of propaganda, but a well thought out article showing the movement as trying to unify. It also alienated a section of women with one line: “Christian colleges you may now quiver dutifully.” I’m sure you did not intend to alienate anv women. I have been called the “F” word and am pleased. I have some old-fashioned morals, some “new age” education, and I am not na’ive about the sexism that is out there. Nor am I ignorant to the role religion often plays in it. I am pm& of my religon; it is not perfect, and it never will be. People organize:religion, people are human, but it offers some of us strength.

Kumar clarification To the Edim, I wish to clariQ several points in the recent article about Dr. Sehdev Kumar and student complaints about his 1987 India Field Studies Program. I previously attempted to do so when one of the reporters contacted me before the article was printed. I hope I can set the record straight on these matters now. The Imprint piece correctly notes that an ad hoc committee was established in 1987 in the Department of Environment and Resource Studies to review- Professor Kumar’s India Field Studies Program then offered through ERS as a credit course. The committee’s mandate was to review curricular matters related to the trip, although it was asked to listen to any complaints from the I987 IFSP participants. The committee was not set up as a substitute for the Ethics Committee, nor for faculty administrators, who according to university policy 53, are the normal channels for resolving ethics charges. Indeed, the committee promised to keep individual students’ identities strictly anonymous so that IFSP participants would feel comfortable enough to discuss their trip experiences with the committee. Students were informed about ways in which they could resolve ethics charges external to the committee. The former department chair and dean informed me that they would have addressed any ethics complaints in 198788 if trip participants were willing to come forward with signed statements, but this did not happen. For the sake of fairness to accused individuals, administrators cannot make findings of misconduct based solely on anonymous allegations. In keeping with the principles of natural justice, complaints against a professor cannot be taken as fact without investigation, and without both parties to a dispute being permitted to present their side of the case and to question the other side’s statements. “Stephanie,” the pseudonym for the alumna who formally complained in 1995 about the 1987 trip, did approach the Ethics Committee in 1988, but decided not to pursue a formal complaint, It was only when “Stephanie” came to me with a signed statement inNovember 1995, some time after the closure of the 1994-95 complaint thar a university administrator had the tools necessary to investigate ethics charges related to the 1987 field trip. I was aware in 1994, when new student complaints against Professor Kumar came to my attention, that the Department of Environment and Resource Studies had
agreed internally that the 1987-88 ad hoc committee’ findings were to remain con& dential within the department. At the time I thought I should respect that decision. I did, however, notify the university attorney of the existence of the committee’s report, and suggested that the University Secretary obtain a copy for him Xit were relevant to the 1994 charges against Dr. Kumar. He read the report and noted correctly that it contained no findings of sexual harassment against Dr. Kumar. This point is critical to understanding the exclusion of the 1987-88 allegations from the University’s treatment of the charges made against Dr. Kumar in 1994. It would be incorrect to imply, as I believe your article has done, that President Downey or former ERS Chair Sally Lemer were aware of prior substantiated sexual harassment by Dr. I&mar and attempted to cover it up when fresh charges arose against himin 1994. Professor Sally timer whowasChairofERSin1995,notedthe~ that she was unaware ofprior allegations of harassment against Dr. Kumar on cump, a critical distinction in her willingnas to return Dr, Kumar to classroom teaching, with no overseas field trip components, following his suspension.
All of the seriow proceedings against Dr. &mar In 1994-95 were taken accord; ing to the University of Waterloo’s Policy 53, which deals with faculty appointments tenure, and dismissal. This policy, avaiIabi6 on UW Info, should clarify to any interested parties of the nature of proceedings against Dr. &mar last year. Confidentiality regarding Dr. Kumar and the 1987 IFSP was not an attempt at a cover-up. Rather it is a general principle implemented to protect the campus climate for members who many (sic) have been wrongly accused of misconduct or who may have made incorrect accusations. My letter to “Stephanie” was marked “personal and confidential.” Since I mailed it to her some weeks ago, she has not replied to me neither to acknowledge the hours of effort I devoted in addressing her complaint, nor to discuss the wisdom of her sending my letter to the campus paper where its contents could be printed piecemeal or out of context. I believe the Xmprint also has an obligation to consider the ethics of excerptmg a confidential letter without its writer’s consent. I fully support open campus debate on l
in Mr. Dressup’s Tickle Trunk that we mver got to see.

The doors deception
Tu the Editw, Since this is my last year at this university, a letter to the editor was something that might bring a closure to my greatest pet peeve here at this university. Others complain about human rights, abortion, etc. How about something more practical? I hate the doors at this university! Let me explain. Have you ever wondered why in most buildings, at least in science and engineering, they only have one door open. Why? Most ofthe time they warn you to “Please use other door,” but sometimes they just lock the one door and you end up looking like a fml tier trying to open it. I can’t count the number of times I have had classes in EL ;ind had herds of people trying to fit through only one dooragoing down the stairs. There must be some reason for having only one door open. I wish I knew what it was. I have formulated some ideas on why they keep only one door open: 1. Longer door life: If they only keep one door open, then the other door doesn’t wear out as fast, therefore cutting down on costs. 2. Less work for janitors: If they only keep one door open then there are less doors for the janitors to lock on the weekend. ‘3. Security for really drunk people: After visiting the Bomber and getting really drunk you try to open. the door and since it doesn’t open and you can’t read the sign “Please use other door”, because you are drunk, you jwt
go home and go to sleep. 4. Ymr reason: Insert ydur reason here something to do while walking between buildings getting to your class. Hope to get a real answer real soon.
educates on SAC
To the Editor, I am very pleased to see that SAC has sparked some debate. (“SACked” letter from Paul Skippen, October 25, 1996) While some of the cross-debate is negative, any or@&ization must be able to be responsive to both negative and positive feedback. As such, I must stand by both Gene Goykhman and Paul Skippen’s right to speak their mind. I will point out that SAC’s job is not to sell a proposal, even if it has developed from within. Internal dissent is always legitimate. A more appropriate role for SAC is to collect student feedback. With respect to the co-op fee, I would like to add my two ients, First, I o&r a warning: Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. If you believe that there are not enough jobs then we should evaluate what co-op needs to improve in order to attract more jobs. This has nothing to do with the fee. Co-op cannot and should not guarantee you a job in the same way that your academic department does not guarantee you an A. Because the administration of the co-op department is fimded entirely by students (no government f&ding), T.do believe that it should be more responsive to students. In this regard, I must congratulate SAC. Paul Skippen (Winter 96), Etienne Phaneuf (Summer 96) and Chris Law (Fall 96) have all successfully lead SAC. Each term the profile, ciedibility and strength of SAC has increased. There are also a number of students working with SAC to develop services and accountability. . Although the university does move slowly remember that this is not necessarily the students’ fault. Imagine how slowly the university would move if SAC weren’t around.
Gene asks for results To the Editw,
It seems an article I wrote a couple of issues ago, entitled “A co-op guarantee,” has caused some controversy. Good. Instead of responding to Ms. Proctor’s and Mr. Skippen’s indi-
FORUM vidual comments, I want to ask them (and anyone else involved in SAC or co-op) one very simple question. Is 4myune willing to commit to a date by which any real co-op fee reform will actually be put in place? I doubt you can. I doubt you will. Do you know why, Paul? Because the best wav to kill a good idea in this sch&l is to hand it to a committee like yours. You will bat it around for a year or two and put out a report. Then you will say that %ese things take time” and “you can’t rush good decisions.” We’ve seen it before. The administrative inertia in this institution is mind-boggling, and you will know that you have lost the minute you start believing that it’s okay to wait two years for something to happen. It’s not okay. In the real world, effort is judged by one standard alone: results. Please don’t try to impress us with the membership of your commitee. Don’t imply that your upcoming report will justify the eight months that have passed: it won’t. Stop hiding be&d the complexity df the issues. I don’t care whether or not you people did any work. I’m questioning if you’re ever going to get anything accomplished. Don’t you get it? Anyone can write reports. SAC will never be taken seriously until it can demonstrate an ability to implement timely change. Prove me wrong. Pick a date. -Gene*hn 4A SystmasDe&n

As if we weren’t seeing enough dirty politics in the U.S. Preside&l raie, we’re seeing it in Canada now, The Liberal Party is tq&g to convince the public that the ReformParty is basically &e same as the Republican Party (you know, mostly Bible-thumpin’, gu.n wavin’, Christian Fundamentalists Who consider it their Godgiven right to shoot doctors who perform abortions) + This tells me a couple things. Primarily that the Liberals are seriously worried about the next election. They don’t have a lot of other competition. The Tories have two seats, and though they’re running candidates in every riding, I don’t expect a huge comeback. And the NDP? Name the federal NDP leader. Don’t worry about it; neither can I. I will be the first to admit that there are similarities between the Reform Party ,and the Republicans. Both have Christian roots, and are economically right wing. But, that’s essentially where the similarity ends. Buchanan, an extremely powerful member of the Republican party, has gone on record as wanting to ban all abortions and put prayer (Christian, of course) back in schools. tie’s also said that he won’t hire any openly homosexual people, and he &led-meibers of the N&i elite SS ‘tictin-d This is half of the negative image that Liberals want to import for their rivals. The other half is simply Bob -Dole, who will be remembered (despite being on Capitol Hill for over 40 years!) for being the-bitter loser in the last U.S. Presidential election. Neither man’s platform really has
much connection to the Reform Party* If they can work it, the Liberals are going to go far with this. Despite the ideal of the educated voter being abie to make up their mind based on legitimate reports of the competing pat-ties, as far as I can tell, people usually vote based on general impressions, not specific information. The fact that politicians spend a lot of money on consultants telling them how to do their hair is’testament enough to that fact. But, despite my fevt~~ reservations about the Reform Party, I hope that this campaign is quickly forgotten. Why? Because it is so patently ridiculous. Some excepts from a memo released by the Prime Minister’s Office: “Reform couldn’t stop at importing Bob Dole; they’re also trying to import Steve Forbes.” “The Reform approach can be summed up in one word-extremism.” And b&t of all, “Just like their Republican friends, Refarmers are in the pocket ofthe gun lobby,” Give me a break. The Liberals, in their most hypocritical moment [though this is definitely subject to debate) have accused the Reform of Ccexploiting the fears of Canadians.” Pm sorry,- &jho 1s trying to exploit the fears of C&ad.ians? - The Liberals are hitting below the belt. They are avoiding legitimate debate on issues such as tax reduction, government downsizing, separation and the deficit, and engaging in scare tactics worthy only of Americti politics. It’s a step in the wrong direction.
Over the next few months, the Calgary Board of Education and two boards in Toronto’s York Region will be raising funds by allowing advertising for such things as fast foods, cereals, school supplies and various other items on their school buses. In addition, 2%~ Globe a&M&j also reported this week that “a consortium of 17 Ontario school boards...is planning to start bus advertising in Jan&y foliowing a pilot project in Guelph.” (Evidently, the word CC~~ns~rtiumnis applicable to school boards now.) The president ofthe marketing company implementing the operation & York said, “Advertisers are able to reach specific target groups and at the same time provide benefits to the community.. .To the extent that this program suppo& student transportation and generates revenue for educaken, everyone wins.” Well, maybe. This raises a number of questions. First, ‘most regard schools as an attempt at a safe haven from the advertising, corporate interests, and-the often-lamented ccculture of consumptiorP that we live in. Putting advertising bn school buses brings these undesirables one sten closer to the classroom. The question is,ldoes your education start whe*n vou eet on the bus, or when you enter the fr&t doors of y&r school? I would tend to say the latter, since the fmer points of my education or classes were rarely the topics-of conversation when I was riding the bus. So far, so good. Meanwhile, teachers are still adjusting to the impact of television on students’ attention spans, and are fighting an uphill
battle in doing so. Will more advertising make their jobs harder? Probably not. On their way to school every day, thousands of students in Toronto ride the TIC, which is plastered with advertising, both inside and out. I have no reason to believe that these students are any worse off than their counterparts who are not exposed to these extra minutes of advertising every day. However, there is a potentially svmbolic element to this initiative. The phkase immediately brought to mind by school bus advertising is, ‘Today, your education W2l.Sbrought to you by.. .” It’s a bit alarmist, but tough to shake. Nevertheless, school bus advertising does not yet mean that corporations will exercise undue or unjustified influence on the education svstem. But while I can’t see school b$, advertising having any sinister effects at present, it could set- a dubious precedent.- School boards are searching fGr new sources of revenue as a result of spending cuts brought on by neoconservative governments in Alberta and Ontario - the provinces where this advertising is first b&g used. Mike Harris has said that the private sector should become more involve&n education. Cornbine this with the fact that the issue was covered by The Globe andM&‘s marketing reporter, and included in the paper’sRepmt on B&mm section, and you can see why school bus advertising carries a lot of baggage with it into the future. If I was in charge, I would give the green light to the project, and then watch what happens very, very careMy.

Tackling Corporate Rule These are troubling times for citizens working to improve social conditions in Canada. For many, it seems like being caught in a war zone under cross-fire, constantly being attacked from all sides. Whether you are engaged in the fight to save decent social programs, health care, and public education; whether you are involved in struggles to improve Canada’s environmental, food, or housing policies; or whether you are concentrating your energies on defending the basic rights of workers and women which have been achieved through hard struggle in recent decades - it feels like people are trapped in diverse foxholes on the battle lines in the midst of a blitzkrieg, facing bombardment from all directions. As the power and influence of corporations increases, the ability of citizens to control their community’s destiny diminishes. A special forum entitled, Taking Back Democracy: Tackling Corporate Rule,” is scheduled for tomorrow, November 2, at St. George’s Anglican Church in Guelph from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. The keynote speaker, Tony Clarke will fw participants on a set of reflections that will clarify (1) the nature of the struggle that is unfolding in the present historical moment, (2) the strategic challenges that need to be addressed, and (3) a concrete proposal on where to go from here. In clarifying the nature of the struggle, we
need to grasp the radical shift in the balance of forces that is taking place in this country before we can effectively name what the crisis is and what to do about it. Second, it is not su&ient to carry on with the muggle, continuing to use conventional strategies and tactics, ifnothing fundamental has changed concerning the nature and balance of forces. We must recognize that, if the challenges are to be met, a new, pioneering process needs to be initiated here in Canada. At the heart of this solution is the call to develop a new form of politics for social movements in an age of corporate rule, Clarke’s proposal for the fbme makes use of the working instruments which have been developed for social movements and are known as the 5-D process: Deftig, Dissecting, Denouncing, Disrupting, and Dismantling Corporate Rule. Tony Clarke will be joined by David Langille who wiil be speaking about the Business Council on National Issues and corporate Canada, as yell as Gayle Valeriote *who will describe the international sturggles against transnational corporations and what lessons can be learned for our communities. Tony Clarke has prepared a paper, “rackling Corporate Rule in Canada,” available in the WPIRG of&e. Event Cancellation: Global Warming & Local Responses with Nicola Ross for Tuesday, November 5 has been postponed. It will be rescheduled for the Winter term.
Last week my column was a little morbid so I thought i would lighten things up a bit. Today I offer you an qalysis of government epistemology. My job is inc&ibly &rnorous. I write letters. - Lots of letters.‘ I have tremendous experience from my days asa Girl Guide pen pd. Now that I a& h&way done my t&n as your VPE, I have developed a discerning eye. One can tell a lot about the politician by their letter. I turn now to my catalogue of governmental correspondences for a demonstration. I have eight letters from Elizabeth Witmer, MPP for Waterloo North, four letters from John Snobelen, Minister of Education and Training, and a single letter from, David Smith, Chair for the Advisory Panel, Terence Young, Parliamentary Assistant to Snobelen and -%4PP,David T&k Assistant Deputy Minister, &d two letters from peopie-in the Canadian Senate, These letters on their fancv letterhead are kinda like baseball cards. “Got it, Got it, s Need it” But what do they mean? c The Signature: The signature is not a verv s&n&ant indicator. All of mv letters are’h&d signed. How can I tell? ?‘he old smear test.- Wet your finger and rub the signature. If it smears that’s a bonafide John Hanncock If it doesn’t, you got the stamp. These people probably spend a couple of hours just signing things. I know our Mario does. If the .sig-nature is reallv messv it was probablv a fo& letter. Is ii a Form Letter? How can you tell if you are the recipient of a mail merge docu-
ment? The easiest way for me to find out is to call all my little friends at other student unions and ask them if they got the same letter. Sometimes it happens. Another tell tale sign is the salutation. Dear Kelly Foley; instead of Dear Ms. Foley, is form letter. Mr. Foley, aside from piss&g me off, screams form letter. Letterhead: The only thing I have to say about letter head is, they all have too much and too many different types. Can we say waste of Tax Dollars!” And now the awards! Best Letter Writer: Elizð Witmer. The honourable Ms. Witmer writes me thankyou letters for my thank-you letters. Worst F&t: John Snobelen. Courier. Say no more. Best Style: Elizabeth Witmer. She crossesout Dear Ms. Foley and hand writes Kelly. That gets me eve+ time, Best bullshit: John Snobelen for his letter telling me how much he enjoyed having dinner with me in Edmonton. Whatever. - Most Sincere: John Snobelen. Generally these letters begin, ‘Thank you for your recent letter” Minister Snobelen’s letter in response to my letter condemning the egg throwing at York University started ‘1 would like to take this oppormnity to personally thank you for your letter”. He’s very welcome. Best Effort: Mabel DeWare, Senator. When you get that high up you don’t even need to pretend you’re-writ&@ the letter. Her executive assistant signed it. (This was also my favourite letterhiad.)

After defeating the York Yeomen 20-8 last Saturday, the Warriors found themselves in the enviable, albeit unfamiliar, position of first place in the OUAA. Combined with about a hundred other occurrences, this resulted in the Warriors drawing their old nemesis, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks, in tomorrow’s OUAA semi-final hook-up at University Stadium. Back in Week Three, the Hawks handed the Warriors their only loss of the season, a 26 10 lesson that the team would rather forget, However, much has happened since then. The Warriors have proven themselves defensively game after game. The Warriors have held opponents to single digit point totals in five games this year. The black and gold curtain is here to stay. The offence has also showr; Gns of life recently, putting 30hoints on Toronto two weeks ago and piling up 333 total yards on York last Saturday. It appears that everything is coming together ar the right time. Also, Laurier is not the same team it was six weeks ago.

urday to eke out a playoff berth. The team has been hit by injuries recently and hasn’t really put it all together yet this year. Oh yeah, one other thing has changed too: the weather. Battle of Waterloo I was played in good weather at University Stadium. Don’t expect that tomorrow, however. At press time, long-range forecasts were indicating that there was a chance of rain or even snow for tomorrow’s contest . And i tSsgoing to be cold. Unseasonably cold. These weather conditions are going to present a problem for Laurier and its pass-dominated offence. At the s&e time, Warrior head coach Dave “Tuw’ Knight must just be licking his chops right now thinking about unleashing Waterloo’s much ballyhooed pound-it-onthe-ground offence that is tailormade for this kind of miserable weather. Look for the weather to have an effect on this game. Last Saturday, however, the weather at York was nearly perfect, and it showed, as the Yeomen and the Warriors combined for 618 total yards ofoffence. The Warriors had the edge in this department, 333-285, with 273 of those yards coming on the ground. Helping contribute to those ground yards were not one, but two hundred-yard rushers for the Warriors, Jarrett Smith led the way with 135 yards on 2 1 carries, including a mbnstrous 59-yarder that set up the first Warrior touchdown. Eddie Kim helped out the cause by contributing 102 yards on 11 carries. Quarterback Ryan Wilkinson nearly made it a threesome, amassing 92 yards on 9 carries in a gutsy perfarmance, despite playing with a bad shoulder on his non-throwing arm.

OUAA All-Star Arek Bigos gave the Warriors a 3-O lead with a 43yard field goal. Three minutes later, a fumbled punt return by Adrian Thorne gave York the ball on the Warrior 30-yard line. However, Waterloo’s defence shut the door on the Yeomen, and a 35-yard field goal attempt by Roy Venier was wide lefi for a single. On the subsequent drive, the Warrior offence struck quickly. Smith’s 59-yard run down to the York two-yard line set up his subsequent two-yard touchdown run to make the score lo- 1. York drove deep late in the quarter, but the Warrior defence was stingy again, allowing only a field goal to make the score 10-4 at the end of the first quarter. York added another rouge on a missed field goal midway through the second, but no significant scoring occurred until Eddie Kim broke loose for a huge 3%yard touchdown run with just over two minutes left in the half. This seemed to break York’s spirit a bit as they had played the Warriors close up to that point. Waterloo threatened again just before the half, but Thorne bbled the ball away at the York threeyard line, spoiling a golden opportunity to put the game away. Ir didn’t matter, though. The Warrior defence held solid, surrendering only a field goal in the second half, which was set up by a Warrior special teams miscue earlier. York also got stingy, allowing only a Bigos field goal with

the third quarter, The fourth quarter saw good defence from both teams with no scoring in the fourth quarter. York threatened with about two minutes left, but a Ted Siountres interception killed any glimmer of hope that York may have had of a comeback. The Warriors lookgood heading into tomorrow’s- Battle of Witerloo II, and you can expect a much better game than the first one. The wigner of the 1 p.m. contest will meet the win&r of the Western-Guelph game next Saturday for the Yates Cup. Waterloo, by gaining homefield advantage for the playof-‘fs, now find themselves in a verv good situation. Should they continue to win, the next game that the\, play away from University Stahium would be the Vanier Cup at SkyDome. If the Warriors take the OWM title, they would advance to the Churchill Howl, one of the national semi-Cnal bowls, which is being played at Univerd sity Stadium, against the winner of the Canada West conference. This has been a monumental year for Warrior football. “Tuffy” broke the all-time CIAU coaching victories mark at the beginning of the season. The Warriors defeated Western for the first time since the formation ofthe OUAA. The Warriors finished atop the OUAA for the first time ever. Could this trend continue? Can Waterloo finally win its first OUAA piayoffgame ever? It will be tough, but with the way things have been going, it’s a good possibility.

Gee,Athenas hit roadblock by Raelene Driscoll special to Imprint
hat is the measure of success?To some, it is winning a few games; to others, it is wiming a conference title; and to yet others, it is going all the way to win a national title. To the Athena soccer players, successstemmed from believing in themselves. With that belief, the Athenas turned last year’s winless season into one which earned them a berth in the OWIAA playoffs. The Athenas traveled to Ottawa this past weekend to challenge the undefeated giants from the east, the Ottawa Gee-&es (what TSa Gee-Gee? It’s a horse.) The OWIAA soccer banquet was held Thursday night, October 24, at the University of Ottawa and proffered some awards for the Athenas. Centre midfielder Margaret Corey and rookie sweeper Laura Munro were named to the West All-Star team and coach Bruce Rodrigues was chosen the West Conference Coach of the Year, which roused a standing ovation from his team. The matchup between the fourth-placed team from the west, the Waterloo Athenas and the firstplaced team from the east, the Ottawa game
to be played in the single elimination round at the Terry Fox Athletic Facilities at 10 a.m., Friday, October 25. The Athenas won the coin toss and chose their
preferred side to start the game. The first 43 minutes of the game were evenly matched, with both Athenas and Gee-Gees having possession of the ball and some scoring opportunites. Striker Kim Rau vaulted high on the six-yard box to notch the ball just wide of the post on a header. Linemate Sandi Dargel had a similar close call on a loose ball in the six-yard box, which was narrowly collected by the Gee-Gees all-star goaltender. Dargel proved instrumental in keeping the score level on two defensive corner-kicks: on the first, an Ottawa shot from the corner cross came low to the near post, which Dargel had been guarding, and seemed bound for the back of the net. Unbelievably, Dargel reflexively one-timed the shot to clear it. Later, an Ottawa header that was out of Athena neuninder Nicole Wight’s reach was similarly cleared by a header of Dargel’s own. Despite these brilliant defensive efforts, the GeeGees returned to open scoring on 43 minutes with a great strike past Wight
A quick goal on 47 minutes put Ottawa ahead 2-O. The Ottawa keeper, who had allowed only three goals in the regular season, was not to have a shut out, however, as Margaret Corey received the ball on a throw-in to turn easily and lay it off to Kim Rau, who directed the bail with her instep to the inside corner of the Ottawa goal. The latter part of the second half represented 25
minutes of strife to the Athenas. They battled to regain possession from a well-oiled Ottawa frontline only to have the momentum oftheir defensive clears overturned by solid tackling by the Ottawa midfielders, the fierce wind and some mafia-like caUsfrom the referee (was it coincidence that the ref was The Godfather of Ottawa’s centre midfielder?) In the end, the strong and deserving Ottawa team advanced to the semi-fmal, with a 2- 1 victory over the Athenas. After a brilliant season, it was fitting that goalkeeper Nicole Wight was chosen asMVP in her last game as an Athena. Ottawa went on to win its semi-final against Queen’s, 3-1 (which, incidentally, was again refereed by The Godfather) and then to take the OW conference title from the defending CIAU (national) champions, the Laurier Golden Hawks, with a score of IO. Ottawa and Laurier will travel to Halifax to compete in the CLAU national championships the second weekend in November. The price the Athenas had to pay for making it to the playoffs was that it was more difficult to go out on a winning note. Some well-wishers expressed regret and disappointment on the Athena’ %ss.” However, that’s not at alI how the Athenas view it. To thwart history, and in two consecutive seasons, to improve from being playoff
the basement team, that’s
Athenas call success.

i$3.99dozen every Wednesday
For the Waterloo Warriors, their captain is Steve Smith, the fourth year Kitchener native who replaces the graduated John Wynne as the man to lead the Black and Gold back to the promised land this season. The shoes Smith must fill loom large. Last year, Wynne ended the Warrior season as the foremost player in Canada. This season, thi VCiarriors don’t look to Smith for such lofty expectations, but they do look to him for leadership. Clutch play. And inspiration. Number Nine provides that and much more. Last weekend, Smith scored the winning goal with five minutes to play to slip past Western 32 in London, and then set up
Smith: Good under pressure. Imprint
Peter Brearley’s game-winner Sunday to cap a wild 7-5 victory in Windsor. Warrior coach Don McKee happily emphasized the worth of SF iith’s coolness under pressure. ‘&Let me tell you about Steve Smith,” recounts the coach. % our first league game against Ryerson, Steve gave away the puck and Ryerson scored to make it l1. In overtime, who was there to set up the winning goal and make amends? That’s what Steve Smith does for this hockey club.”
Teammate Chad Palmer agrees with McKee. “Steve is a leader, a prototype of John Wynne,” observes the third year rearguard. ‘“The players look up to Steve and listen to him when he speaks. Not only is he a good role modef as a person, but he is also an excellent hockev, player.” Smith has also had his share of adversity during his university career. In his second season, a chronic knee injury kept him out of the lineup, and while the Warriors prepared for their upcoming games, Smith would remain behind to skate, sometimes by himself, at Columbia Ice Field. Least season, Smith played a major role in helping the Warriors in their OWAA title run. He is a playoff-type player, thriving in the close games, and leading the way to victory. The 4-O Warriors, looking for a return trip to the CIAU title, know this much about their team: they will not fold in face of stiff competition and adversity. They will not choke because their leader, Steve Smith, won’t allow it to happen. That is the consummate hockey captain.
Swim team tour fiuitfid by Andrew Moffat special to Imprint
Ave, Unit 48 589fo’rway Road South, 150Uniier$y
ast weekend the Waterloo Swimmers set out on a three day swimming expedition in search of worthy opponents to show off their expertise in the pool. The first stop was Friday in Kingston, where the Warriors defeated Queens and RMC while the Athenas finished a close second to Queens. First place finishes on the women’s side were achieved byAmy Jarvis (first, 200 free; first, 50 free; second, 100 breast), Vai Walker (first,400 IM; first, 100 free; third, 100 back), and Sheryl Sanders (first, 200 back; second, 400 free). On the Warrior side, number one finishes were swam by Andrew Moffat (first, 400 IM’; second, 200 fly), Anthony Tham (first, 100 fly; first, 100 back), Jay Cull (first, 800 free; third, 200 free), Maneesh Shanbhag (first, 100 breast; second, 200 free), Ian Washbreastook (first, 50 free; first, 100 free), Chris Nagy (first, 200 IM; second, 200 back), and John Milne (first, 200 breast). Having a full complement of swimmers, the Warriors were able to assemble first class relay teams of Tharn, Washbreastook, Jonas Freeansson and Milne to take the 4x100 freestyle relay and Jon Secord, Milne, Nagy and Freeansson to take the 4x100 medley relay. After this strong first leg of the trip, the Waterloo team then
headed for Montreal where they met the challenge of a talented McGill team on Saturday. Here the Athenas rose to the challenge and out-touched the McGill women’s team bv one point. Leading this victorv was Sanders (first, 100 back), Jennifer Pells (first, 100 fly; first, 200 fly), Deanna Hlywka (first, 200 back; third, 50 free), Tereza Mace1 (second, 400 free; third, 200 fret), Walker (second, 200 IM; second, 200 breast) and Melanie Wilson (third, 200 IM). The women’s relay teams complemented the individual swims by winning both the 4x200 free relav and 4x100 medley relay. The McGill men’s team proved to be a good match that called for some fast swimming on the part of the men that finished onIy 7 points behind. Powerful men’s racing was demonstrated by Milne (first, 50 free; third, 100 free), Washbreastook (first, 100 free), Tham (first, 200 back; first, 200 LM), Nagy (f’irst, 100 fly; first, 100 back), Shanbhag (second, 100 breast), Trcvor Dcnstcdt (second, 200 fly), Moffat (second, 400 free; second, 200 breast; third, 100 breast), Freeansson (third, 50 free; third, 200 free), Steve Dibiase (third, 400 free),
With two meets under their belt, the Waterloo team packed up and headed back to Ottawa to take on Ottawa and Carleton on their home turf without disappointment. Here the Warriors clobbered both opponents a in a Herculean performance, while the Athenas pummeled Carleton, finishing a close second to Ottawa. The Warriors dominating team was lead by Tham (first, 100 back), Moffat (first, 200 IM), Milne (second, 200 IM), Jon Secord (second, 200 back), Freeansson (third, 100 fly), Rohmann (second, J 00 breast), Nagy (first, 50 free), Denstedt (second, 1500 free), and Diabiase (third, 1500 free) Both the 4x100 medley and free relays were easily won bv the men’s team. On the Athena side, strong perfclrmances were demonstrated by Hlywka (first, 100 back; third, 100 free), Pells (third, 200 free), Mace1 (second, 100 LM; second, 100 fly) Jarvis (first, 200 back), Sanders (second, 100 breast), and Walker (first, 200 fly; third, 50 free). And, like the Warriors, the Athenas cleaned up in both the 4x100 medley and free relays. These three meets were the biggest tests yet for the Waterloo swim team, which rose to the
breast). On the relay side of things, the men took second in the 4x100 free relay, and in an exciting race into the fast 5 meters, a team anchored by Nagy out-touched McGill to win the 4x100 medley relay.
is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the up-coming competitions. This weekend the Athenas and Warriors take on York in Waterloo at 2 p.m. on Saturday. So, come on out and help us to another victory!
Varsity T roundup Athena Baskdall The Athenas suffered three straight iosses against tough competition at the Western tournament this weekend. Opening on Friday against last year’s OVVIAA champions from U of T, Waterloo dropped the game 70-40. Next the Athenas faced last year’s OWIAA runner-up, the Western Mustangs, and fell 72-50 on Saturday. Finally on Sunday, the Athenas dropped another one to Queen’s by a 76-54 score. Athena guard Jodi Hawley was named to the tournament all-star team. Wawiw Basketball Visiting the U of Ottawa for their first tournament, the Warriors came up short in two contests on the weekend.

Mark Eys was named to the tournament all-star team. Atkna VdLeybidL The unsung Athena Volleyball team surprised many observers by getting to finals of the Queen’s Invitational on the weekend in Kingston. Not only did they get there, but had a good chance to win, leading two games to one and up 9-3 in the fourth game before lckng it sfip away. In pool play, the Athenas beat Sherbrooke College and Brock by 3-O scores, but fell to Carleton 30 to finish second in their pool.

his weekend, the Waterloo Warrior volleyball team is hosting the Warrior Volleyball Classic at the A PAC. The tournament features five teams, four of which are ranked in the top 10 in the COUII~~~. Here are the participating teams, along with their national ranking and a brief outlook for the upcoming season.
ans Jason Hubbard and Ivan Luke give Waterloo a strong middle, while rookie Mark Gatto and third-year Brian Snooks will push each other for court time at the setting position. Second-year power hitter Jeff Lingard and defensive specialist Peter OlijnFrk will be key performers this season, while rookies Phil McKee and Mike SperIing wiil be counted on right away to contribute as outside hitters.
ftie additions in Mark Habash and Craig Rideout, Western could be among the nation’s elite this the around. The Mustangs already have pre-season wins over Manitoba, Calgary and other traditional powers. Veteran setter Geoff Miller will have senior hitters Rob Mizak and Ryan Finch to rely on. The best rookie in the OUAA last season, Darren Brow&e, has moved to middle and may have reduced court time.
struggled in the preseason. But . coach Garth Pischke, in his final year at Manitoba before taking over the National Team program, is not the type to go out on a low and typically has his teams playing their best when it counts the most. Fifth-year veterans Andrew Zurawsky and Garrett Kot will lead with experience, while setter Terrill Outhwaite and last season’s CIfKJ Rookie of the Year, Dan Lewis, will provide youthful energy.
Season Outlook: mer bronze medals at the 1994 and 1995 nationals, last year’s Tigers finished fifth at the CIAU tournament and are looking to improve on that

Normally, I don’t support the relocating of sports franchises from one city to another. Sometimes, however, circumstances warrant exploiting this undesirable alternative. Perhaps the city simply can’t support the f&c&e. Or, perhaps, they just don’t care. It is for the latter reason that: the Montreal Expos should pack up their bags and leave town as soon as possible. Montreal is by no means a small market that can’t support a professional sports tianchise, Quite simply, the problem with the Expos is the apathetic attitude of the people ofthe city of Montreal. Les Expos have put a quality club on the field for the past few years, despite losing so many key players via free agency or salary-dumping trades. The most recent casualty was Expos starting pitcher Jeff Fassero. Fassero, along with his new threeyear, $13.5 million contract and a prospect, was shipped off to the Seattle Mariners in return for three prospects. Typical Dillabough captured the first-ever in Expos deal. Fassero was Montreal’s ace last season, with a 15 - 11 record and an ERA of dividual O’WIAA cross country title fol 3.30. Waterloo on the weekend in Kingston ant led the Athenas to their frost-ever team title The Expos have one of the best farm systems in the major leagues. The problem as well. A fourth year K&siology student, is, when these players finally develop into Dillabough is now the number one rankec cross coumy runner in the CIAU. She ser star players, they become free agents and leave Montreal because the Expos can’t a course record time of 17: 11.68 at tht OWTAA event in Kingston. afford to keep them anymore. They can’t afford to keep these players because they *aren’t having any success at the gate or in hhecommtity; : L The Expc)s can do no more. For the past few years, this team has been a contender and were pegged as World Series favourites in 1994 before the strike heard
’ round the world. This year, they were in the wild-card race until the very end of the season. Even with all ofthis, the Expos still can’t draw a decent crowd to Olympic Stadium. Speaking of the strike, I don’t believe that it should be used as an excuse for Montreal’s apathy. I know that Expo fans were disillusioned by the strike that probably cost them the World Series title in 1994, but that should not be a reason for no longer supporting the team. If anybody in Montreal would stop focusing on the latest Canadiens rumours for just one second, they would realize that there will not be a repeat of the 1994 strike debacle. Even the stupid people running baseball bow better than to do that again. Put quite simply, the city of Montreal does not deserve a major league baseball team. There are lots of cities that are dying for a contender (ask the Detroit Tigers), butnobodyinMontrealreallyg.ivesadamn. They only care about their precious Canadiens. Even in the summer, when there is absolutely no hockey going on, Montreal people StiEl don’t care about the Expos. I bet that if a Catladien were to appear at a card show inMontreal, it would probably draw more people than a Montreal Expos game. The Expos should leave Montreal as soon as possible and relocate to a city that would actually care about the team. That way, they could ieave behind all of the narrow-minded idiot&n Montreal, draw some fans, keep their good players, and fmally win the World Series championship that Montreal’s apathy has prevented them from winning for so many years.
Once again, the NHL is looking to expand. After adding five new teams in seven years (San Jose Sharks, Ottawa Senators, Tampa Bay Lightning, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, and Florida Panthers), the new bosses in the NHL have decided that, because there’s a demand, it’s time to dilute the talent pool once more. By as much as four new teams. Now, it’s hard to fault the league in their thinking for two primary reasons: one, $75 million expansion fees really help to line the other owner’s pockets; two, if they wait too much longer, then every Canadian team besides Montreal and Toronto will have moved to one of these ripe U.S. markets, and denied the league the dorementioned $75 million fees. As an aside, that’s the precise reason that Peter Pocklington got $7 million a year in support from the league. $7 million for the time being means $75 milliori later on, The worst part in all of this, is that suitors from North York and Hamilton are already lined up co join the dance. In spire of the fact that there’s not a chance in hell that either citv will be granted a f&chise. Whynot~Well,themainreasonswould be the Buf&lo Sabres and the Toronto Maple Letis. Does anyone in Hamilton or North York seriously think that a team
would go in into either of those cities as long as the LRafs and the Sabres are still skating? By the be-g of the next century, the Maple Leafs will have moved into their new stadium, which should feature a significant increase in seats over the current 14,000 or so. The Sabres just moved into the Marine-Midland Arena, and are having trouble putting butts in the seats. Maybe when the Bills’ season is over, things will improve, but there’s no guarantee. Would either of these teams allow another team to move in and take away part of it’s fm base? No. Hamilton had its shot back in 1990, but B&&lo and Toronto vetoed then, and there’s more on the iine now, North York? Get serious, maybe an OHL team, possibly even an IHL team, but there never will be an NHL expansion team in North York. From a league standpoint, you have to realize that putting a team in Hamilton or North York doesn’t do a thing for the league. These people are already hockey fans,cheyalreadysupportteams.Byputing teams into cities like Portland, Nashville, Atlanta and Houston, the league cultivates new markets out of people who don? really know a thing about hockey. Americans, no less. And isn’t that really what hockey’s all about?

REPENT, FOR THE END 1s NIGH Millennium
created by Chris Carter 9:OO Ftidky an Fox aptd Global by Greg Picken Imprint staff
fill of distw&in~ Sags.” Chris Carter n a television season dominated by knock offs of theXIF iies, such as Dark Skies, Pmfiler and the abysmal PSIFactw, Milletznitim has been heavily promoted since the beginning of the summer. mer months of anticipation, viewers were finally able to see what the hype is all about. Not that much. The second child of X-F&~ guu Chris Carter, M&nnitim begins on a familiar path: strange, supernatural events, a conspiratorial organization whose true identity is shrouded in mystery, and an overriding plot that will promise to pop its head up every couple of episodes. It’s &nost a point-bypoint reworking of the X-Files as it is now, without the benefit of the naive infancy that the X-Files endured. However, that is exactly what Carter wants. Millennium is designed to plumb the depths that Carter couldn’t justify exploring with
Mulder and Scully. He says that the show is about ‘%tories I couldn’t do on theX-Fi&a, stories about psychological terror, the real world with real criminal and truly human tionsters.” The show is based around Frank Black, played by Lance Hen&en, a retired FBI agent with the strange ability to read t&e minds of serial killers, Just af& the series starts, Black gets caught up with the Millennium Group, a group of former law etiorcement agents who are preparing for the ultimate battle between good and evil, prophesied to occur on the millenium, It’s an interesting premise, but whether it has enough life to carry on like the alien invasion plot in X-F&s... Even before this show aired, critics and social activists were complaining about the dark, visceral mood to the show. The first few minutes of the show featured a serial killer watching his victim in a peepshow, mumbling about the degeneration of human morality. Then, the wall behind the dancing girl begins to bleed, she begins to bleed, the music intensifies, and the window closes. Another gruesome scene was the unearthing of a man buried alive, with his eyes and mouth sewn shut. Definitely not recom-
mended viewing for young children. From a production standpoint, this series is a carbon copy of the beautifully crafted film Seven. Very dark, very grimy and extremely moody. The show Iooks good, but could get tiresome far too quickly. The biggest concern I have with the show is that it is impossible to empathize with Frank. Henriksen is acting far too intense, and his performance becomes laughable tier a few scant minutes. One of the keys to theXF& is the interplay between Mulder and Scully, and M&aniwa, wit-h basically Frank and his wife and daughter, doesn’t have anything close to that. So far, where it really counts, Mibwzitim is a winner. It dominated its Friday night time slot, pulling in a 14.4 rating and a 24 share, the highest numbers for a dramatic premiere &is season and the best ever for Fox. The Litmus test will come in a couple of we&s, when we see what kind of following the show can keep. The strength of the XF&s was that it kept people coming back. At this point, after only one episode, that has yet to be

pervasive fad that foolishly equates lo-fi with “shitty sounding” has given much of indie rock a bad name. Too many bands have resorted to releasing noisy, distorted albums under the guise of some DIY aesthetic, and this has undeservedly given some bands a bad image. The Archers of Loaf have largely been able to avoid being lumped into said group by simply being better than their guitarwielding peers and last week’s show was a perfect example of how they’ve managed to build and maintain

AOL doesn’t suck Archers of Loaf
Not yet the victims of a backlash, AOL are the heirs to the Pavement throne and deservedly so. Initial singles like ‘Wrong’ and ‘Web in Front” deserve as much attention as anything Nirvana ever did.
Unlike their new album which sometimes fades into a samesounding greyness, the Archers prove themselves competent musicians in a live context by alternating between hypnotic repetition, sheets of white noise and catchy hooks that provide a firm basis for memorable, songs. Having no idea what any of the band members looked like, it was surprisingtoseethattheArchers look amazingly normal. That may be ti odd comment, but it virtually goes without saying that to be in a rock band is to wear funny clothes, pierce some part of yourbodyanddosomethingcrazy with your hair. The Archers of LoaflooklikepeopleinyourEnglish class. . .except for the bassist, who is a freak. Well, “freak” is a harsh term, but his bug-eyed stare was extremely
ephantine lumbering didn’t add any points to his “totally normal person” score. Regardless, bassist Matt Gentling plays his instrument with astounding vigour, as did the rest of the band. It’s strange that their ability to engage an audience doesn’t
translate into a strong album. By mixing up some popular songs (starting with ‘CAudiowhore” was a stroke of genius) with new songs, mesmerising instrumental segments and a liberal amount of straight-ahead hard rockmade the show a continuously changing performance. A The audience clearly preferred the songs they knew, but new material was as well received by the crowd. The crowd routinely gave the band their undivided attention and then exploded into applause. That being said, it was the obvious lack of some of AOL’s more popular songs that was the only drawback to the show. A common complaint, true, but ifs hard to resist imagining what the show would have been like had the band played ‘Wrong,” ccRevenge,”
and Fight Song” or Vii the Nation’s Airports.” The last of those songs, surely, an obvious choice to help promote the new album. Such predictable bitching aside, it was proven tonight that contrary to popular belief, AOL does not suck.,

ooray for the Volcano! When I walked in to the club at 9: 30 and found the first band already playing, I realized that this is what a concert should be. As soon as one band was off the stage the next was setting up. France For 100 started things off to a sparse crowd of spectators . This psychedelic power chord pop three piece from Niagara Falls was spited by several of the Rock and Roll gods. These gods plagued .FFlOO through failing patch chords, false starts, and a certain af%liction where the band members’ feet are nailed to the stage, leaving them immobile from the waist down. Actually, their amateurish presentation was very endearing. Toronto band Project 9 followed, creating an interesting juxtaposition of their ultra-tight sound and FF100’s not-so-ultratight sound. Technically P9 was headlining, but their bassist had another show in Toronto after. It is sad that they did not close; sad, that is, for the I-onlycome-up-for-the-last-band folks who missed an excellent intense perfbrmmce of Unikunstmwika. That Lquistic mutant was what P9 used to describe their style of music, and I couldn’t disagree. Unikun~titi~ refers to any blend of foreign and local music styles. P9 has a strong Central American influence (likely resulting from the three El Salvadorian members) and combines that with heavy ti which makes an original sound and an excellent show.

Not Opera Hose Saturday, October 26 by Reni Imprint
lmost exactly two years ago, four women from ew York Citv visited a AN little club in Toronto to wow an audience with their own brand of sample-heavy jazz/hip-hop/funk grooves. That was tier their secend-stqge slot opening for longtime buddies, the Beastie Boys, at Lollapalooza 1994, and before the coveted opening spot for R.E.M. on their arena tour in ‘95. They were back in T.O. last Saturday on the last stop of their North American tour. The opening band was quite a treat. Los Angeles’ Red Five, four reasonably normal-looking people, walked on stage. I expected a typical ihdie opening band that, although reasonably talented, could barely keep the audience’s attention. I was quite wrong. Red Five played fifteen hard, fast, angry songs, most from their Interscope Records release, Finch, in their forty-five minute set. Strong vocals from Jenni and Beth, the two female guitarists, paired with the simple yet effective basslines from bassist Mitch and seemingly endless energy from all four were enough to snatch the audience from indifference and keep them interested for the entire set. Even without any effects pedals or any other cool layers like’ those used by the show% headliners, the crowd seemed quite irnpressed with what the foursome had to offer. Some songs, like “Creation,” start out a little mellower, and we expect that perhaps we can relax for a few minutes, but then the song kicks in at full force and once

that again, you’re blown away by the wall of noise and energy. The set lefi most exhausted yet smiling. Luscious Jackson were unable to create such a stir. Perhaps it was because the Opera House was the last stop of their tour, but that shouldn’t be an excuse. And with their excitement after watching their home team NY Yankees win the World Series, one would have expected a little more from this fab four. Unfortunately, however, stage presence was lacking, there was very little movement onstage, and they seemed unenthused, or perhaps just plain bored. And the groovy music did little to make up for it. It was cool to see that they had a guest percussionist and a D J, but that only helped to produce near carboncopies of album tracks. Slight clifferences were noticed, but only those due to the difference between studio and stage equipment. Bassist Jill CunnifI’s voice was almost raw from all the touring, which added a funky twist to the songs. Guitarist Gabby Glaser’s lack of interest could be heard in her vocal solos. Luscious Jackson played the usualsongs from 1992’sIn Search of&n~y EP and 1994’s f&length release, Niztural I&~w& mt.., as well assix tracks from their new album, Fever Im, Few Out (set for release October 29). Memorables include “Barn Barn,” their usual Vrowd participation” song, a surprisingly energetic %ity Song” during the encore, and my personal favourite, “Strongman.” Perhaps this show was an isolated incident, asLuscious Jackson are a great band and can usually please a crowd. But isolated or not, it’s u&ortunate to hear that fellow audience members felt they were ripped OK as you’re leaving the venue with the same feelings.

the summer, Ma&cod was the obvious choice. Paul understands his role in the band is not to replace Cash: “I’m a big Peter Cash fan” he told me tier the concert. “I don’t want to tread on what he did.” Guitarist Josh Finlayson agreed that the band is not trying to carry on as if nothing happened; rather, they are headed in new direction. aI saw this change as an exciting opportunity to get a new start and possibly redefine the bmd,” said Finlayson. This new direction was evi-
dent not only by the songs selected for the show, (which, featured less songs that Cash had sung), but especially from the sound of the four new songs performed on Saturday. The new songs were generaIly harder than previous material, yet still distinctly Skydiggerish. The show also featured more ofthe band’s lessmainsmeam tunes that make the Skydigger’s sound so unique, such as‘WiceGrabam,” =Just Over This Mountain” and 7?u.ll Me Down.” The icing on the cake was the finale of a four-song encore: an energetic and extended version of Neil Young’s classic “Mr. Soul.” All in all it was a outstanding evening, leaving me excited about the band’s next album, which is due out in the new year, as well as Paul MacLeocl’s first solo release due out shortly. It was evident that despite the loss of Peter Cash, with Paul MacLeod along the Skydiggers will continue to be one of Canada’s premier bands. I’m sure those who attended the show were equally impressed. As for the rest ofyou, I hope you don’t make the same mistake the next time the Skydiggers come to town!

Much has happened for the Toronto- based acid-jazz band since their last stop on the Waterloo campus September saw them sign their first album, 1991’sPrestibd Vzbe, for release in Japan, and recording of their second aL bum, slated for release early in the new year, has continued. With only minutes remaining before show time, the band was still without their lead vocalist. Stuck in traffic en route to the show, he was about a half hour from campus. Not deterred in the least, Evan Cranley, trombone player and backup vocalist, said

the show would go‘on. Gypsy Soul quietly took the stage and launched into an almost seamless thirty minutes of groove, bringing the audience a mix of funk, fast-paced guitar and rhythms. Afterbeingurgedbytheband numerous times, reluctant dancers hesitantly made their way to the floor, but one arrival was of particular importance. With what was perfect timing (well, almost), Marcus, whose dynamic vocals broughtFedHallgoerstoafrenzy, calmly meandered amidst the dance floor crowd as he approached the stage. Briefly looking like another concert-goer, he took the as-yet-unused centre microphone in hand to a wide round of applause that was both thanks to the band for their blissful rhythms and anticipation ofthings to come. 5ing a ticking song,n jeered trumpeter Cathy Craig as Marcus took his position. The performance took on another feel asker the addition of vocals, with perhaps the most impressive display ofMarcus’ fine voice and range on “Shoulder to
Shoulder.” The show continued with constant variance in style. Their instrumental expertise arrived at from a mix of backgrounds, Gypsy Soul created everything from mellow, soulful sounds to funky, dance-inducing extended jams with hard-edged guitar riffs which pulled people from their seats. Settling into a slow groove laden with heavy bass and little else, drumrn er Darren Shearer defied the curse that supposedly plagues those who play the didgeridoo outside of its native Australia. With the five-foot instrument in hand, Shearer emerged from behind his drum kit to give the Bombshelter audience the unique sound that he later described as a ‘konstant fart.” Unique indeed. For now, the band is playing low-key shows, focusing on fmishing their second recording, but simultaneously gearing up for an intense round of touring that will no doubt bring them back to the area in support of their upcoming release.

azz musichas its roots in Africa. It formed and developed in the United States. New Orleans was the melting pot that lead to the first jazz. It then moved up the Mississippi to St. Louis, and on to Chicago and New York. It has since spread to every corner of the world. At the same time, American jazz musicians have incorporated sounds and styles from abroad. Throughout its history, there have been performers who adhere to the forms established by the previous generation ofmusicians, and there have be&n those who constantly push the boundaries and stretch the definition of jazz. Whik jazz does not top the popular charts as it did in the past, it retains a large and dedicated audience. CKMS has always had some of these fans aslisteners and as programmers. For as long as any of us can remember, Monday night has been Jazz Night on
some old blues. After the&Gad &.&we move into Be-Bop and beyond. Benvecn 7 and 10 p.m., Dot Hi@ or Geoff MacDonald, choose the Jazz. DOC, like Eva, has been doing this radio thing for some time
very entertaining two hours. Whether you’re interested in learning about the huge array of music known as jazz or are already a committed jazzophile, check out Monday nights on CKMS.
Something fruity this way comes by Sandy Atwal Imprint staff What fresh poncery is this? Yes, the Pet Shop. Boys have always released music that was a little. . *fruity, but this is going too far. Some of their best songs, “So Hard” or their version of “GO West,” had about them a power, a strength like the most vicious buggery, but on I3dirzgpd, they seem to have a little trouble getting it up. A new interest in latino rhythms could have injected a little spice into the PSB’s dance formula, but unfortunately it just sounds sort of cheap-like the pre-programmed “Rhumba”
by Wayne Jefhies special to Imprint These guys suck. How, you might ask, did I arrive at this conclusion? Let’s review something we all learned in high school math. If A-B and B=C, then A=C. These guys are a sorry excuse for a New Kids on the Block ripoff group (Backstreet Boys = NKOTB). New Kids onthe Block suck (NKOTB = suck). Hence, these guys suck (Backstreet Boys = suck). Yes, somebody actually had the nerve to pick out five prettyboys with a very small amount of talent, put them together with some dance beats, make songs and put out a record. To make matters worse, the shit that they have put out is the same “we’re a bunch of badasses that you don’t want to mess with but at the same time we’re so suave and sentimental that the ladies can’t resist our pretty-boy
sound on those cheap Casio kepboards. That might give the wrong impression. It’s not like any of the songs sound particularly cheap: they+e all pretty complex, true to the overproducing nature of Tennant and Lowe, but the whole is less than the sum of its parts. Lyricdy, Neti Tennant seems to have lost a bit of his sarcasm to the band’s disadvantage. There’s little that’s clever or witty here, really with the exception of “Electricity” which manages to make fim of the Pet Shop Boy’s own excessive stage productions by calling them “the greatest show with the best effects &nce DiscoTex and the Sexelettes.” The Pet Shop Boys are a great band. There are few bands that really manage to make intelligent, filmy, inventive dance music, but l?ihz~wzE sees them taking a step in the wrong direction. asses” bullshit that five Bostonians named Danny, DOMY, Joe, John, and Jordan made famous a few years ago. Upon putting on this CD, I was disgusted to hear the first track, ‘We’ve Got It Goin’ On.” This was their first radio hit, followedupbytracktwo,%etDown (You’re the One for Me),” another mistake that has been getting recent airplay. Just when I thought that this shit couldn’t get any worse, I listened to the rest of the album. My God, this whole CD really, really sucks hard. These guys- simply have no talent, period. The worst part is that somebody is actually getting paid in this whole mess. Yes, someone is making money off this album. I think that it is our duty to seek out this person or people, string them up by their most vulnerable body parts, tar and feather them, use them for ptiatas, and force them to listen to this shit, 24 hours a day, for a whole year. We must tell the world that we will no longer put up with dance acts featuring a bunch of no-good, scum-sucking, haircombing, too-much-money-making, slick-acting, trash-talking, too-many-women-getting, no-talent-having idiots that will probably make one album, get their money, and get out of the business, never tb be seen or heard from again just like that guy, Qran “Juice” Jones, I just hope that the Backstreet Boys never run into New Kids on the Block in some back alley somewhere, because NKOTB could kick their ass.
by James Russell Imprint staff Moist was one of those bands that came out of nowhere, ended up in heavy rotation, and left half the people hating them and half loving them. And so, for some, Creature will not even be worth a listen. They are just a bunch of wankers, after all. But for some, Crctimre is the long-awaited follow-up to the smash Silver, which spawned, among others, the big hit (number one on Much Music) “Push.” I had mixed feelings about the band. They defmitely looked like wankers (though I have met entirely too many women who think lead singer David Usher is the “sexiest man alive”), but their material was pretty solid. So I got Creatzcre. What do I think now? Well, they still look like wankers, but I cannot dispute the fact that these guys can write good songs.
by &de McKechnie special to &print Known throughout the guitar-playing world for his glassy tone and his unrivalled pentatonic wizardry, Eric Johnson is one of the premiere rock guitarists of our time. With his latest release, Vius I&, he confirms his title as the third-greatest axe slinger ever to don a Fender stratocaster (next to Her&ix and Stevie Ray Vaughn). In accordance with the format of his two previous albums,
by Patrick Imprint
This album is a really good blend of hard and soft material. “Hate” is a pretty little intro to the album, and uses piano very nicely. They also use cello and trumpets on the album, and I think it works. Someone said to me “Since when did Moist get a horn section?“, but I have to give credit where it is due; they use it when it’s appropriate, and lay off when it’s not. “Disco Days” is another good slow dance number, and if I had to choose, I’d say, Y?ush” to the contrary, slow numbers are
Moist’s strength. Usher’s voice just doesn’t have the balls to really do justice to some serious noise. Despite that, “Theme From Cola” is a good rock song. Sure, a lot of the s&on the album is fairly generic, but these days an album with three songs you actually want to listen to twice is pretty rare. All in all, if you liked S&Y, you’re gonna like Creutzwe. Moist hasn’t taken any major steps musically, but they have come up with a second good album.
instrumental and vocal-accompanied tracks ‘are featured equally. Vmus lisle’s two opening cuts are the highlights of the vocal section, both incorporating an eastern, harmonic minor feel that exposes a previously unexplored aspect of Johnson’s playing. The remaining vocal tracks aren’t bad, but as usual, it is on the instrumental tracks that he really shines. A huge spectrum of musical styles are explored; from mellow jazz a la chitlins con came on ccManhattan,” to reckless shredding on “Pavilion.” Without question, the highlight of the album was the bluesy instrumental track “SRV,” where tribute is paid to the greatest blues guitaristever: Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Jimmie Vaughn, Stevie’s brother, played the lead guitar on the track as only he can, contributing the candy coating to a song that is unrivalled on Venm Idk Unfortunately, despite the high overall quality of this new album, it does not reach the high listenability standard set by Ah V?aMu.bn five years ago. I would definitely recommend that album over Venus Isle to a first time listener of Eric Johnson, since it is much easier to get into. After a few spins, long time fans won’t be disappointed though. I%nzcsIsle is a masterpiece from a guitarist that few can ever hope to rival, and none can ever hope to duplicate-Eric Johnson.

sugary pop. Teeny Records’“High School” virtually defines the genre: two minutes long, supercatchy, and impossible to get out of your head. B-side “Weekend Go” is slightly longer (2: IO) and only less memorable in comparison to the A-side. The Behl/Clag split features two very cute (sorry, but there’s no better word for it) bands from opposite sides of the planet. The audio is incredible; where most 7”s fall short on the high and/or low ends, the basson Clag’s side is phvsically moving, and B’ehl’s high-pitched notes are crystal clear. B’ehl’s LcBreathe You” is beautiful, and while Clag are darker in vocals and lyrics, “Fresh” is perhaps the best pop song the label has released yet. Vinyl never tasted any sweeter.
Canada has a lot of indie labels. Winnipeg’s Endearing Records is one of them. With the Endearing label, however, comes the assurance that whatever the sleeve holds will be a beautiful piece of well-crafted pop music. Less than a year after I bought Endearing’s first release, the summer 1995 B’ehl/Cheerleader split 7’ 14 and C&shed, I’d worn out the grooves. Another Cheerleader 7” followed (the band is now,

first I thought this was OMD, bur it’s worse than NKOTB. Safeto say it’s not PiL, But, if it was, well, t’would be swell. It’s a whole lot lighter than KMFDM, But it’s light years away from REM. Play too loud and you might wind up deaf, Cuz this stufFis worse than KLF. Now, if you’re into punk like SNFU, Then I guarantee, this ain’t for you. Must cleanse my soul, put on NIN Again and again and again and again, Then follow that up with some PWEI, Cuz too much Trent, and you will die!

“A video game soundtrack?” I asked incredulously. ,Well, yes it is, and what’s more it’s a rather fine one. Shots of the video game (for the Sony Playstation) are included amongst bios of the bands on the camp, which is a virtual who’s who of UK techno. Underworld, Orbital, L&field, Future Sounds oflondon, and the Prodigy all are included, ald though none of the material seems to be “previously unreleased,” at least it saves you the expense of importing all of this stuff. The highlight? For me it’s the whiteknuckle ride “Loops of Fury” by the Chemical Brothers-and thankfully, Noel Gallagher had nothing to do with this one. -GK

If you remember the summer release of the movie FZed, you will undoubtedly remember that it was only around for a very short time before it itselffled. The same fate overtook the soundtrack and caused the same reaction in myself. Although I grabbed the CD due to the presence of Fishbone, among others, the amount of repetitive bass throbbing repeatedly to the same beat drove me to flee from the disk, never to return. -RVK
The brutal truth behind this wall of sound and unadultered random words of hate, is that this band is poetry in commotion. To serve the underlying metaphor, the words are blunt, the voice is rough and strained, inaudible under a sea of rage, of thrashing drums and simple, pounding ri&. Whenever this disk was played in Imprint’s lair, it cut our productivity in half, and wretched screams would beg to hear it cease until track’s end would serve to give release. -AK
