The Men's A team placed a very dose secondto C a r h n with the Bteam coming sixth. The Women's A team was fifth. Sunday's classic events saw both the Warriors and the Athenas maintain their overall rankings.

Only Lakehead and Carleton finished ahead of the Athenas. With the first major races ofthe season successfully completed, the rest of the season appears poised to hold some more stellar pcrfbrmances by the Warriors and Athenas.

to vote on Fed Hall Is it worth another 15 dollars?

by Natalie Gillis Imprint staff rudents will finally have their say about Federation HalI this March, when a referendum on the bar’s fate will be held concurrent with the upcoming Federation of Students Executive elections. Fed Hall has faced staggering losses over the past several years, largely due to declining student interest in the bar. The time has come for students to make a choice, says VP Administration and Finance Tori Harris. “It’s all about turning this over to the students. It’s their bar and it’s their sav.” Students will be asked if the Feds should continue operating Fed Hall and if so, if they wish to see a $5.00 increase in the Federation Hall fee for the Fall 1997, Winter 1998 and Spring I998 terms, to cover renovations to Federation Hall. Currently, full-time undergraduate students pay a $7.50 Fed Hall f ec with their tuition, the majority ofwhich goes towards paying off the mortgage negotiated to build Fed Hall in 1984. The $150,000 in revenue that the $5.00 increment to this fee would generate would go strictly towards funding renovations for the bar.


Tori Harris admits that this may not cover the entire cost of renovating Fed Hall, but that it would be a significant start. “Fed Hall has been neglected since the day it opened,” said the bar’s manager, Hayden Belgrave. ‘We can’t ever turn it back into what it was when it was first built, but something certainly needs to be done,” As for the renovations, there is no plan yet-as to what the work will entail. It is the responsibility of the ‘cyeS” committee of the referendum campaign to suggest a plan for improving Fed Hall. Precisely what renovations will be done will be determined after the referendum, should students agree to increasing the Fed Hall fek, Possibilities for improvements include new paint, carpeting, fLrniture and various space reduction techniques, say Harris and Belgrave. Currently, neither a “yes” nor a “no” committee has presented itself, despite the Federation of Students having held a general meeting this past Wednesday for just such a purpose, The meeting was poorly attended, and although several Fed Hall staff members were present, no Federation of Students executives saw fit to attend. Committees have until January 23 to come forward to the Chief Returning Qfker. In the event that committees

are not formed to represent one or both sides of the issue, the Federation of Students wiil take on the promotion of the remaining referendum sides. Campaigning is set to begin January 3 1 and continues until February IO. Voting takes place February 11 and 12. Ironically, the referendum is put before students in the first year in many that Fed HalI has managed to turn a profit. Althoughthe bar lost close to $50,000 in the 199495 fiscal year, it had made over $25,000 for 1996-97 as of November 30,1996, despite being budgeted for a $6,000 loss. This can be credited to sound event planning by new management at Fed. Although recent attention has focused on the opening of Fed Hall to non-student business, Belgrave noted that %tudents are still bringing in the majority of the money.” What will happen if students decide that the Feds should discontinue operation of Federation Hall has yet to be determined. Even if the bar were shut down or sold to another organization, however, students would have tC continue to pay the $7.50 Fed Hall fee with their tuition, since this fee pays the building’s mortgage and is not a %er fee,” as some students believe.

OUSA Director laid off by Karsten W. Gitter Imprint St&T


ichael Burns no longer reigns as the Executive Director of the Ontario Undergraduate Student ‘ante @USA). Following a revision of the original budget, it became apparent that the student lobby group was facing dramatic financial losses. In a move to avert such a fate, UUSA’s Steering Committee decided to relieve Mr. Burns of his duties. As Kelly Foley, the Feds’ Vice President Education, phrased it, “we couldn’t afford him anymore.” The revised budget produced discrepancies from the original version in three main areas, and were defined by OUSA as“unanticipated increases in regular expenses such astravel, legal feesand general offlce expenditures.” Monthly meetings, more than experienced in any previous years, and the costs of moving a four by three and a halffmt book from campus to campus as part of the Don’t CtOsethe Book an Univern’ties campaign had exhausted the group’s travelling funds prematurely. The “general office expenditures,” meanwhile, translate into questionable decisions, such as whether to print documents in colour and mail them via courier or send them the cheaper conventional way. An unanticipated increase in legal fees, however, turned out to be the major drain to OUSA’s resources. The $500,000 lawsuit fded against OUSA by Andy Bratu Lehrer in November 1996 in particular had devastating effects, as the estimated expense of $2,000 skyrocketed to

$5,000 with five months remaining in the current fiscal year. In response to the looming financial disaster, Burns himself proposed to end his affiliation with OUSA, a proposal which was willingly accepted by the Steering Committee. Consequently, January 3, 1997 marked Burns last official day with OUSA. In the interim, acting Treasurer Barry McCartan will fulfill the key responsibilities left by Burns before hiring a new full-time Executive Director in the new fiscal year. In addition, the member schools will pick up some of the slack by assuming responsibility for press releases and responses to the Minister of Education. While Kelly Folev concedes that the increased work-load will cLmeanthat w&l all be busier,” she assures that the “average external viewer shouldn’t see much of a difference.” While all major 0US.A decisions presently require two signatorees, the entire affair of laying Burns off has motivated OUSA’s Steering Co&tree to review all policies and procedures of 6USA with the aim of clearly outlining fmanciai policies and. redefting the Executive Director’s job description. Burns’ lay-off marks yet another storm in an already tempestuous year for OUSA, highlighted by the fiasco of the Lehrer lawsuit, In spite of these problems, Foley assured that the Feds have no plans to discontinue UW’s association with OUSA Gat,this moment,- emphasizing that any such move would be decided by the students themseives.

The cost of public interest year, WPIRG received $82,167 from the student levy. That amount has now increased almost $30,000, with the 1996-97 budget showing students contributing $lI 1,886 to the activist organization. Some ofthis increase has gone to payroll, with WPIR~‘s two fidl time employess, Daryl Novak and Linda Vieregge, splitting the $79,126 allocated to salaries and payroll. This is up from $68,042 in 1993-94. However, Novak and Vieregge had no hand in that

ast September, VVPIRG (Waterloo Public Interest Research Group) raised its student fee to $4.75 from $3.28. This was the first increase since 1989, and coincided with WPIRG’s move from iti offices in the General Service Complex to the Student Life Center. This hike has led to a significant increase in WPIRG’s revenue. In the 1993-94 academic

increase, All PIRG employees throughout the province are members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees I28 1 (through the provincial chapter QPIRG Ontario Public Interest Research Group), and have a set pay scale that increases over a period of five years and then stabilizes, with adjustments for the cost of living. Nonetheless, the impact of the salaries on VVPIRG’s operations cannot be ignored. Novak’s and Vieregge’s pay eats up 69.5% of the entire budget, leaving only

WPIRG has seen an increased demand for its services md resources with the move to the SLC, a much higher profile location, and this is using up some of the additional cash. Rent is now also a factor, though, at $5,172 a year, this consumes only 17% of the additional revenue. WPIRG staff say that the move has brought in “tons and tons more people.” But there has still been some money to spare

Novak fLlly agrees with the decision to increase the student fee, saying, sLOurs had been lagging,” in comparison to other fees. However, WPIRG seems to have more than made up for any lag, now charging more than ei-


for more computer equipment, extra programming, and some small renovations. WPIKG now has a conference room in its ofiicc, a feature that the cramped GSC quarters could not provide, tbrcing volunteers and working groups to meet elsewhere. The decision to increase the fee had to be passed at an Annual General Meeting of all WPIRG members (if you payed the WPIRG fee, you’re one) and then submitted to the Federation of Studenrs for presentation to the university’s Board of Governors. The AGM was in March 1996 and the increase was in place for last September. WPIRG also applies for various grants, usually im&ing Shident employment opportunities, but doesn’t spend a lot of time or money on such activities. YVhen those types of things are available, we apply for them,” said Novak. ‘We don’t waste time on anything we don’t think is viable.”

Big, bad world of news


by Rob Van Kruistum and Patti Lenard Imprint staff Canada - Contrary w to popular public opinion, Canada, economically speaking, is doing better than ever


This week the Toronto Stock Exchange 300 composite index (TSE 3001, a measure afthe value of the top 300 Canadian industries, has been posting record highs. On Tuesday, the TSE 300 was at a record high of 6,054.86 basis points and on Wednesday it set a new record. This all means that Canada is doing well economically and that the recession is indeed over. Europe - The Union Bank of Switzerland said Tuesday that its employees threw away documents last week in violation of a governmental ban against such actionk. The documents, containing information relating to the Hotocaust, were needed in an investigation into allegations that Switzcrland colluded with Hit&s Germany, siphoning off Jewish assets and laundering Nazi gold. A security guard found and rescued some of the documents from a bin labeled to be shredded. Israel - Leader of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Yasser

and Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu have come to an agreement tier three months of negotiations. The agreement will expand Palestinian rule to the city of Hebron and rural areas in the West Bank. Without including future plans for the removal of Israeii occupying forces, the agreement is said to please both Netanyahu and Arafat. In spite of this, Nctanyahu is expected to face substantial opposition to the agreement within his own cabinet. Already, seven members of the 1 g-member cabinet have claimed that they willvote against it, A&at is expected to encounter little opposition from his own cabinet. The agreement is the first obvious show of progress in the peace process accomplished by Netanyahu since his election last June.


Peru - The iefiist rebels holding 74 hostages at the Japanese embassy in Lima have accepted a proposal from Peru’s government to create a commission aimed at securing a peaceful solution to the 2%day siege. They pledged Wednesday they would not “execute” any of their 74 hostages but warned that the deadlock in negotiations was pushing the crisis towards a violent end. Peruvian President Albert0

Fujimori has ref&ed to rule out force while negotiations with the rebels, who are now in the fifth week of the hostage-taking, are at a standstill. The rebels said that without tangible progress in negotiations, the crisis was “being pushed towards a military end” where the government would take responsibility for any injury to hostages in a possible st orming of the residence. They also warned the government that they would llot accept a peaceful end to the crisis that involved their surrender.


II Wednesday night, unionists intended to present JrlhnTutt, owner of the Prbcess Cinema, with 500 postcards signed by patrons stating that they will not attend the theatre until the current disputes are resolved. Although media from throughout the city were on hand outside the Princess for the presentation, Tutt was not. He chose not to confront the 20 picketers who were asking for his presence. Instead, he remained in the projection booth and Elizabeth Kerr, Princess patron and picketer, read a statement to the press. The statement outlined the picketers’ goals, the reasons for their objections, and their view of the current disputes. Following the reading of the statement, Kerr climbed the stairs, to the projection booth and presented Tutt with the signed postcards herself. Upon her return, she stated that he accepted the cards and was p&c in his demeanour. The heart of the current issue concerns the inability of Tutt and the Ontario Motion Picture Projectionist’s to come to an agree-

ment about the renewal of their contract. The contract expired on December 31, 1996. Following from this is the dispute concerning the alleged unethical treatment of union projectionists at the Princess Cinema. The result has been the lockout of full-time projectionist Calvin Devries and part-time projectionist Sam McIntyre, and picketers have been outside the cinema since January 1 protesting against this. The picketers are asking Tutt to come back to the negotiating table. In spite of being faced with

Russia - Russia is threatening to merge with Belarus in response to the eastward expansion ofNAT0. NATO is planning on inducting three new members at its summit this summer, namely Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic. Reports from Russia are claiming that this merge will endanger Russia’s security by placing Western military forces too close to its border. Yeltsin has communicated with Belarussian President Alexander Lukashenko with offers of unification. The proposed unification would include a shared government and budget. Perhaps most importantly, however, the unification would probably result in the placement of nucle’ar weapons in Belarus.

the knowledge that the picketers are meeting with some success, Tutt has refused to renegotiate the contract. He claims to have no need for a full-time projectionist and says that he is capable of handling the job himself. According to many of the picketers, however, Tutt is currently employing a “scab” worker to replace both projectionists previously employed by the Princess, Tutt rejects this claim as false. Regardless, as the picketing enters its third week, negotiations and a resolution still do not seem iminent.

uring my third academic term, I participated in the Northern Ireland exchange. At a meeting held prior to our departure, the organizer repeatedly stressed the poor student living conditions for those considering living OK campus. “Many students have no heat, and some live without running water!!” Of course, 1 secured a room in residence fearing the image of sitting on a broken wooden stool wrapped up/‘” a moldy blanket with my feet in a steel bucket filled with hot wa& warmed by a fire. Well, these fears were completely unwarranted. The residence resembled a jail, missing only the bars on the windows for that full effect. In January, I pulled out and within the first apartment hunting day, I landed a htige Victorian house to share with four others. It had a backyard; it had a two bathrwms; it was heated, and we never needed to pump water out of the well decorating our front lawn. It cost roughly $65 a week for this furnished palace. I have now returned to Waterloo to complete my degree. I am no stranger to apartment hunting, but I soon became a depressed, pissed-off wreck during my search for a place. Don’t misunderstand--I wasn’t looking for anything fancy: something with a little light, filrnished and within a mile radius of the uniirersity. My only other requirement was that I did not want to live in a huge student house, Something small, cozy. and quiet tomallow me to complete

hanging from a wire on the ceiling. I felt like I was in WhoGlle after the G-inch’s raid. The icing on the cake were the rents, all of which were between $300 and $450 a month for light deficient dungeons. Oh, and guess how many met the requirement of a fire exit or a maximum of unrelated people living together under one roof? I am not sure who to blame. Perhaps everyone is at fault. The landlords should not falsely advertise their dmk basements as fully fUrnished apartments. The Federation of Students should not offer housing lists to students without checking off the basic requirements. Would it be that costlv to send out a mcmbcr with a check list befofe they add it to their list? This student inspector coLlld even charge these hopeful landlords a nominal fee to add them to the list, paying the studem for time and effort. * And last but riot least, students shouId not put up with this shit. Many of these people are doing this under the table. None of us want the ha& of the leasing paperwork, but think about who is getting fucked over: who is pocketing a minimum $300/month for virtually nothing? Remember, these so-called landlords need/want the money desperately. Do&settle for a dump with an exorbitant price tag. Give them your demands and if they retie to meet them, go elsewhere. Why should you partake in their illegal scheme if Jrou are not getting some kind of deal? Sure, you are a student and most of you are only looking for a place to crash for four months, but you needn’t be robbed at the same time. WC are poor students, right? I finally found a great one bedroom on Erb Street at a reasonable price. Where did I hear about it? The K-W Record.

Thankfully the staff of Imprint has been able to tianscend the inherent weaknesses of its own laissez-faire policies, but in the hands of lesser editors, the quality of the paper could really suffer. Relying on volunteers is essential for Imprint’s success and the paper does a terrific job of

encouraging prospective writers, but when said volunteers are not forthcoming, the staff must remember its mandate to provide students with the most comprehensive student’newspaper that circumstances dictate. - Dun Zacbatiuh uw alumnus

The lamest letter ever To the Editw, I would like to address Sandie Edwards’ review ofL.P., by the Rembrandts, which I came upon while looking around on the Internet. I hear from both Phil Solem and Danny Wilde very often and have a VERY popular web page as a tribute to them. You refer to their style as “mediocre pop music” and insinuate that they will only be known for the Friends theme. Of course, the Rembrandts are also quite famous for the 1990 hit LcJustThe Way It Is Baby” which has been classifed by several reviews as “The perfect pop song.” The top-ten single was the first song on their highly successful debut, The Rmzhdts. This album was actually a demo that was recorded in Danny Wilde’s garage, but was deemed of such high quality that the demo was released “as is!”




You also point out that the sticker on the L.P. cover says “bonus track”, which you refer to as a marketing scheme. Of course, this is because 7&e Friends Theme wasn’t meant to be onU? The first 250,000 covers had hen printed. At the same time, radio stations around the country would tap-e the 42 second theme off the TV and loop it into a three minute song. The Rembrandts went back into the studio and made the version which appears on L.P., if for no other reason, to accurately represent their talents. So forget marketing schemes, that Ftinds theme IS a bonus track. Never intended to be on the CD, but added at the request of Warner Bras. The Kembrandts style may not be indicative of the garbage that appears on ‘the radio tday, but it’s something that is sadly missed in our society. ..good music. Don’t listen to bash the vocals of the Grammy-nominated duo, instead, take norice of the hooks and riffs and the many DIFFERENT sounds. The true beauty of “Drowning In Your Tears,” or the haunting sounds of “The Other Side Of Night” (written by Phil Solem following his father’s death,) No, the Rembrandts don’t fit your mold of how music should sound, but what you missed are some guys who are just having fun and, aiong the way, have made some of the best music since the Beatles. - Dara BiWelicu





FORUM’ Tutt,


To the Editur,

The lockout at the Princess Cinema is surprising to many ofus mlho attend there regularly. The Princess presents a wide variety of good films, and portrays an image as a thoughtful alternative cinema. It’s a popular spot with a lot of Waterloo faculty and students, including my wife and me. S’o why have we been on a picket line in the rain and snow since early in January? We’re very angry at the unfair way the Princess management has treated two loyal and very competent employees. The regular projectionist, Calvin Dcvries, and the part-time projectionist, Sam McIntyre, have been locked out by the owner of the Princess, John Tutt. A fockout is not a strike. Instead, when their contract expired on December 31 the projectionistq were told that their services would not be required until further notice (no days in January, perhaps one day in Februaqr!), and that the new salary would be $10 per hour if they were required - with no benefits. Previously they earned $13 pr hour for 5 hours per night, and paid into UK, CPI? and medical and pension plans. The mainstream media have given Tutt’s version of the lockout. Tutt presents himself as a struggling businessman who cannot aKord to pay a projectionist, so that he or his wife must run the projectors. However, on the first night of the Iockout a person who crossed the picket line (known bv* the projectionists) said that Tutt was going to train hi m to run the projector, for $11 per hour. A new projectionist paid $ I1

per hour would save Tutt $10 per night (plus a little for benefits). Devries has worked at the Princess for almost nine years. Tutt profited from about 300 unpaid hours of work while McIntyre completed his apprenticeship at the Princess. Devries recognized the special nature of the Princess three and a half years ago when he accepted the lowest unionized projectionist wages in Ontario. He realizes that his long-term interests can best be served by a healthy Princess, and is willing to negotiate. But Tutt has refLsed to negotiate despite their repeated attempts throughout the fall of 1996. We don’t think this is fair. Do you throw out a loyal employee after almost nine years to save $10 p&night ? If you’re having fina.ncial problems don’t you sit down to discuss salary or other items which management regards as a problem ? In discussions with the picketers many of the Princess patrons have expressed surprise, shock and anger at Turt’s behaviour. Sure, some people don’t care, but a lot do. They think the Princess should show a positive example as an employer. Some nights more than 50% of the potential patrons have chosen not to go. In fact, over 450 people, many of them Princess Members, - have signed cards asking for negotiations, stating that they will not return to the Princess until the dispute is resolved. We don’t want to shut down the Princess. On the contrary, we want it to continue and be profitable. But we won’t patronize it if loyal long-term employees are treated like dirt. Besides, locked out workers cannot file for UIC. If locked out workers are finally forced onto welfare, they become a net cost to our community,


We’re asking that people not patronize the Princess until the dispute is resolved. To speed up the process you could visit the picket line to encourage Devries and McIntyre, and sign a postcard saving you won’t go to the Princess either: Or call Tutt, and tell him how you feel. The stronger your support, the sooner the Princess can resume its position as an ethical member of the Waterloo business community.

Perhaps you bought the groceries. Perhaps you bought a friend a coffee. Perhaps you went to Phil’s on Sunday before nine to avoid the cover and bought yourself two beers. Perhaps you secured your future by purchasing two stocks of Brick Brewery. Maybe you went to a movie. Excuse mc, I forgot, a movie even on cheap night costs more than the Imprint refund. It seriously makes me ill to think that a minority of students here cannot afford to donate thirty-five cents a week to their local student newspaper. I sincerely hope that those of you who have got your refund never touch an Imprint with your pennypinching fingers while you’re on campus. You honestly don’t deserve it, And for those of you who did in fact pay your four dollars and ten cents, enjoy reading the paper because I know I will, and T would assume that the Imprint stafr thanks you for supporting your oti’n student newspaper.

I would just like to say that I find it appalling that some students of this university aChdy take the time out of their lives - Peter Fru&s to get their refund of four dollars and ten wistmy cents from their own student newspaper.

Angry Grrrrls “I am not an angry girl, but it seems like 1’~ got everyone fooled. Everytime T say something they find hard to hear, they chalk it up to my anger, and never to their own fear,” -Ani Difiranco Feminists are often stereotyped as angry, or bitter women. This is demonstrated in an old joke where a woman walks into a bookstore and askswhere the humour section is. She’s told that there is none, for it’s a feminist bookstore. Anger is a tricky issue for feminists. I feel I must tnr not to perpetuate anv stereotvpes since i seem to represent feminists , on campus, but there are timeswhen anger is appropriate and healthy. If I’m at a bar, and some pig grabs me, I have a right to be angry. If my courseload doesn’t reflect women’s contributions to the world, I won’t apologize for feeling cheated. It’s maddening that women’s intclligcncc and creativity have been lost for so long. Feminism isn’t just a bunch ofpissedoff women sitting around bitching about how evil men are. It’s a celebration of female strength, Events like International Women’s Week are outpourings of jo~r. They prove the stereowpe is false. S&e .

feminists express anger at injustice. Anyone who can sit through a video of the Vienna Tribunal and not feel overwhelmed with anger is just inhuman. (At the Vienna Tribunal, women from every country in the world shared stories of the mass rape, incest, beatings, forced abortions, forced sterilization, genital mutilation, racism, homophobia etc. that make up women’s widespread oppression.) Admitting that discrimination makes you angry does not make you a raving radical feminist I’ve yet to meet one in real life. This stereotype serves to keep women alienated from their own movement. Feminism has become a four letter” word. An accusation with negative connotations. We can reclaim words though and insist on defining them on our own terms. Feminism, for me, is about understanding power hierarchies. It’s a commitment of equality, tolerance and social change. It’s an insistence on my right to self-definition and dignity as a person. Call me a “green girl” but I intend to work towards changing the world’s injustice an! way T can, and if anger will help me do it, I’ll let it flow. The word “bitch” is an acronym for a woman who is “Being In Total Control of Herself.”

Last week I wrote about some of the problems the justice system is facing, because justice is one of the few fundamental concepts I believe in. As a T,ibertarian, the idea of people getting what they deserve is a sweet one, and don’t give me any of that mercy crap. Anyway, despite my column, horrible injustices continue to occur. IN JUSTICE # 1: The Liberal government is shutting down the Somalia inquiry just before it got good, because they know it will make them look bad with an election coming up Starting at the bottom, the commissioners worked through the troops who were actually in Somalia and are now ready to examine the upper echelons of power. But before they can get any of the Liberal elite on the stand, the inquiry is being terminated. bf course the government denies that there is any political motivation behind the decision. Defence Minister Doug Young said, “It could have lasted forever,” but that’s bullshit. The results of the process so far will be almost useless without following the trail to its source. Sure. the mum did some horrible things, but tl-& h&l nothing to do with the resulting cover-up; that was all on Parliament Hill, and now that’s where the inquinT 4.l never get, INJU*STICE #2: Ok, get this. Police sergeant David Pviattison shoots his wife, dismembers her with a hacksaw, cuts ofF her fingertips to reduce chances of identification of the body, sets fire to the couple’s car to co&me police, and dumps his ulife’s bod\7 parts into a canal that leads into Lake Oniario. He reports her missing 19 da\rs , later. Unfomlnately, not all goes according to plan. DNA tests identify a thigh that washed up and the cops arrest him.-Ntcr a plea bargain, Mattison gets convicted of

manslaughter (which means that, legally, he didn’t really mean to kill her) and gets the minimum sentence of ten years. However, it has been less than four Irears since he was sentenced and Mattison is already on day parole while living at a half-way house. And within a few months, he might be completely free, able to do as he pleases and spend his police pension. You see,unless a cop gets fired for dereliction of duty, they are free to draw a full pension. So, even though this guy killed his wife, he gets to enjoy cash from the public purse. TNJ~S’T’ICE #3: President Clinton has been charged with sexual harassment by Paula Jones. The normal course of events Gould be to have a trial. Whether this will occur while Clinton is president remains to be seen, The delay is not due to any court backlogs, no, no, it’s because Cllinton’s lawyers are arguing that 3 sitting president shouldn’t have to stand trial because it will hurt the executive branch of the U.S. government. They are pcrfcctl\r content to let him go to trial once he’s d&e in the White I House. There is a problem with this. IfClinton’s lawyers succeed, they can set the precedent that presidents are iemporarily above the law. This leaves presidents free to break the law with impunity while thev arc in office. But, what ifClinton was’still in his first term? If he’s found guilty, that could seriously aff’ect his chances of winning the nest election - although I believe that he still could have beaten Dole. Hell, I could h;lve beaten Dole. Regardless ofthe political implications, I believe that no ore should be above the law, least of al politicians. In f&t, 1 think extra laws just for politicians would bc a pretty good idea. The day Sheila Copps gets sent to jail for being a lving bitch will be a banner day in my life, 1% tell you , that.

mer I got over the shock and horror of discovering that This Hour has 22 Minutes was preempted by something infinitely less entertaining, 1 sat down to thif& of a topic for this week’s column. Fortunately, my roommate Adam was on hand to add some insight and suggestions. “why don’t you write about the purpose of university?” He went on to talk about a bit he had seen on Speakers’ Corner. A number of young people were complaining about not being able to get a job after having graduated from university. The first thought that popped into my head after Listening to this scenario was ‘YVho the hell would employ someone on Speakers’ Corner !” The relative lunacy of Speakers’ Corner patrons aside, Adam raises a very important question: exactly, what is the p&pose of university. This very simple question is at the root of everv crisis we have had in PSE. (ke’ve had quite a few in the last few decades, especially with Snobelen inventing them.) The answer will define

one’s assumptions and will ultimately affect one’s view on everything from &nding to curricu1Un-L I have contemplated this question before. I actually wrote a paper for one of my courses on this very topic, so I am relatively aware of the volumes of literature debating this issue. Although schoiars have pundered this for decades, and even centuries, I’m going to be smug enough to assume that I can offer meaningfill discourse in these 500 words. Smug is fun after all. There are essentially two points of view; one is the John Stuart Mill approach, the other is that of our friend and minister John Snobelen, (I apologize in advance for supporters of both who may be insulted by finding both names in the same sentence.) My personal hero, Mill, purports that education is not to create trades people or professionals but to create citizens. To Minister Snobelen we are all partners and clients and all other sorts of unappealing buzz words.

I’d like to ask why these two approaches have to be mutually exclusive. I think that universities do both reasonable well. “Learning for the sake ok learning” is a misnomer. A person’s motiiations are irrelevant. Can you imagine lining people up and quizzing them, ‘&Are you taking CS because you love it or because you want to get a job. You love CS?. . . You’re out of here!” A student who chooses their courses and structures their academic career wisely can satisfy their desires to study a particular topic and enhance their employability. Students have to take some responsibility for making themselves employable through electives or volunteerism or suffer the consequences. I understand that my comments

may sound




recent employment rates. For all those reading this thinking I’m full of it, take comfort. I may be eating my words soon. I’m about to graduate having spent the bulk of my time learning about how sand bounces.

Beer: the Other Food Group II... it provokes the desire, but it takes away the Derformance...” -Macbeth by Mike





3t’s in a beer, anyway? Everyone asksthemselves this at some point, but the knowledge seems to bc lacking fix- mx~y. l3~r is esscntidy made up from three imporPant things: water, malt, and hops. Depending on the beer, you can also find things like rice, corn sugar, rye and other unmalted starch sources, but we’ll get to those later. First, we should have a look at the more basic ingredients. Malts

When you drink a bct’r, malt is probably the most important consideration there is ti>r flavour. No matter how cheap and watery the beer is, you can’t avoid I malt, though by the taste you can guess that some major brewers try their best. Malt is barley which has bc&prepared for brewing by soaking and heating. The malting process lets the harle)r sprout. Just dkit starts to sprout it is dried and rrlastud to varying degrees. The more you ro;lst it, the darker it g:cts. Hefore you run OK to throw the bean sprouts in the oven, ~YILI should know that barley is malted f& a reason. When the XC& are just in the process of sprouting, certain enzymes are being f&led that convert the starch in the seeds into sugars for the plant. PVithout theseenzymes, barley would he ustkss for < beer. Malt dc)c’sgo beyond colour and sugars for yeast though. It’s the major contributor to the body of a beer, as well as the rich, sweet taste’that a bocr can have. The body can be a mcasurc of the amount of malt that went into a beer. Try this simple experiment at home-Take one rr@or label beer like Coors, Budweiser or whatever. Drink said beer. Now, try the same thing with one major imported brand along the lines of Guinness or McEwans. You’ll notice that the imported beers can hold a head better, whicL is indicative of the prmein that has been put into the beer by malts. Draw in the head - make a h&y KKC. 111a nice, thick beer, that face will bc smilin’ up at you when dvou finish. Contrary to North American ideals, a beer in Europe is expcctcd to have a good head. HOPS

Hops are another basic for beer, though the first brews were likely made without them. Hops introduce the bitterness to beer that we all know and love, and the first beers, which lacked hops, must have been sickly sweet. Beyond simple bitterness, however, hops also add varying flavours, such as fiuity flavours, flowery tastes and some esters that bring herbs and spices to mind. While many popular North American beers seem to have little hop character, any imported or homebrewed beer can give you a good idea of what hops can do.

If these flavours sound out of place in a beer, well, that’s because you’ve been conditioned bv North American megabrcws. Meet me ir, the import section of the LCBO - we can have a beer or two. Hops do more than just adding taste to beer though. They also help preserve a beer. A well hopped beer can survive pretty well without preservatives or pasteurization, as the acids of the hops kill off the vile bacteria that might get in to spoil your brew. You might then be wondering why most beers are pasteurized or have preservatives. Well, any beer that’s being shipped pretty far is going to go through some cxtrcme conditions, so many breweries want to make sure that the beer gets to you tasting however it was intended to taste. I can think of a couple of beers that get to market without any of those sorts of things being done to them, and those are bottle conditioned beers - beers which go through a third fermentation in the bottle, and tend to have pretty high alcohol contents in the range of eight to nine per cent, which is enough to deter almost any COIItaminating organism. Adjuncts As I said before, malts are the major source of sugars and other things that arc needed by the yeast that make our beer. However, other things known as adjuncts can be used to replace a certain amount of the malt in a beer. Starch sources like rice and oats can be used, as long as their starches are extracted by cooking. The enzymes in malt can generally support 20 to 30 per cent adjunct starch conversion, which means that 20 to 30 per cent of the malt can be replaced with rice, as is reputedly done in some major label beers. These adjuncts tend to make fclr a thinner beer without lessening the alcoholic strength of the product. If you really want a weak flavowred and bodied beer, you can go one step further, and add extra enzymes to the fermenting beer. Alpha-amylases not only sound tasty, but also break down the carbohydrates that are normally leti in a beer to give it some body. These enzymes are added to produce a “light” beer, which is basically a beer that feels and drinks like water 4~ alcohol in it. “Less filling” for sure, as ali you’re getting from the beer is thin liquids. As far as “tastes great,” well, you need a pretnr sensitive tongue to claim that - most “l&e” beers seem about as tasty as K-W water, Aside from rice and other malt replacements, a disturbing number of things have been added to beer over the ages. Ever tried a garlic beer before? I can’t think of why you’d want to, but it’s been done. And if you’re ever in the mood for liquid heartburn, hot peppers seem to be a prett\; common option for home brewers, as wei.l as for one or two insane breweries out there. Aside from these extreme options,

there are some other better tasting options like molasses, maple syrup, herbs such as cloves and even licorice. A lot of these arc uncommon in beers, but they can add a real navour aid character to a beer. Like I said - meet me in the import section, and bring your Visa.


Alcohol is of course, a major part ofanv beer. For years now, we in Canada ha& actually been guilty of a form of beer snobbery of sorts. The standard line of American beer being like making love in a canoe is actually misinformed, as most American beer is equal to the standard Canadian beer in alcohol, In Canada, alcohol is listed by per cent of volume, and in the U.S. by per cent of mass. Alcohol weighs less than water, and as a result, the two measurements are not going to be the same. A four per cent American beer is exactly the same as a five per cent Canadian beer. Now, it is true that the move to stronger and stronger beers in the Canadian markets has put Canadian beers in a stronger category, but that’s another story altogether.

Now it’s time we had a look at what actually forms the alcohol in a beer - our eternal drinking buddy - yeat! The yeasts used to make beers can be divided into two main groups based on where they sit in the beer during fermentation. Ale yeasts are warmer fermenting yeasts, and they tend to float around on tile top of beer, surfing the waves, and generally having a good time. The second major group is the lager yeasts, which work at lower temperatures and tend to lurk in the muck at the bottom of the brewing vessels. While the tastes that these two types produce are different, so much depends on the other ingredients of a beer that it is impossible to define any particular difference in the two styles. Yomucould have a favourite ale, and there’s more than likely a lager somewhere that you’d find just assatisfying. It’s enough to simply recognize that these two types exist. Along with the vital alcohol production that yeasts perform, they also add flavours in the form of esters, organic acids, phenols, and most importantly, fuse1 oils. Sadly, thcsc tlavour-enhancing aspects of yeast’s job also have a lot to do with a little something we all know, the hangover. So what’s to be done? Well, we’ll be damned if we’re going to drink tasteless beer, and students have been known to drink, so here are some suggestions to prevent hangovers. The first and most common idea is to drink water, and lots of it, Alcohol dehydrates you, so try to get yourself rehydrated before going to bed. If you drink enough of it to rc4ly rehydrate yourself, you could be up for a while, which is a good thing too. Being sober when you go to bed tends to improve the next morning. Some people also feel that alcohol drains you of the vitamin B complex. So, if you think of it, taking some vitamin B complex pills might not be a bad idea. Now ifyou’d like some advice on what you shouldn’t do for a hangover, yowl can start with coRee. Not only will the stuff hit your rather tender stomach hard, but the caff‘cine will dehydrate you even more, making your feel Aeaclily worse. Anything that tastes harsh is likely to make you feel even worse than before. What you should go for is fruit juice, which can get your stomach ready for some real food. Aside from that, take a shower, get some fresh air, and try eating normally as soon as you CLUIit’ll make your stomach happy. This has been a quick summary of beer, and there are books and books of information that could have been included here that wasn’t. If you really want to know more about beer, hit the web! Searching under brewing, homebrewing, and beer should get you some decent results. Just avoid the major brewery sites, which tend to bc one long commercial, and remember, you don’t have to know a lot about beer to enjoy a cool one now and then, so sit back and enjoy.

elcome to another semester filled with labs, assignments, reports, group projects, class projects, midterms and finals. Welcome to the stress zone. There are many stresshl situations in a student’s life that are sometimes over-looked and ofien underestimated. Sometimes there are manIT stresses that can leave you feeling like your life has been I turned upside down. If you are familiar with this feeling, there is good news: there are many holistic therapies available-- treatments not normally practised by mainstream medicine -- which are reasonably priced and have wonderfill health-promoting benefits. In a world where tension and stress is a part of our daily lives, there is increasing awareness and populariw * of druglcss, non-invasivc, complimentary therapies. Thcrapics such as massage, aromatherapy, therapeutic touch, reflcsology , ear candling, and meditation arc av;lilablc to help YOU cope with health problems I rangiq from headaches to asthma.

Some 2000 years ago the Greek physician Hippocrates noted that “Rubbing can bind a joint that is too,loose and loosen a joint that is too rigid.” Today, massage is used to aid in a wide variety of health problems including aching muscles, asthma, headaches, insomnia, minor corxtipation, stxessand tension. Loosening muscular tension has also been known to lead to the freeing of repressed emotions. For many people suffering from nervous tension, massage has become their therapy of choice, instead of relying on drugs for rest and relaxation.

Massage is a great way to keep you healthy, physically and emotionally. It can help you &aid the nasty side effects that prescription drugs may have, and can help you avoid addictions to pain medications. The basis of massage is touch, and a healing touch is a powerful gift. AROMA775ERlWY Aromatherapy heals using essential oils from plant sources. Plants such as lavender, peppermint, and chamomile, are steamdistilled to extract the essential oil of the plant. The very life force of the plant, this essential oil is the basis of aromatherapy. When used properly, essential oils stimulate the body’s healing powers and produce no side effects. Aromatherapy can help to baIante the body and promote mental well- being by directly a&ecting the brain through your sense of smell or through absorption of the skin. Aromatherapy has been known to aid disorders such as headaches, stress, nervous disorders, skin problems and depression. Essential oils can be used in a

number of different ways. They can be used in massage or added to a bath. They can be inhaled directly from a container, through steam or by use of an aromatic diffuser. Thev can be sprayed as air freshener; and insect repellents. Many people use essential oils for skin and hair care aswell as for perfume I When choosing essential oils beware of impostors. The essential oils you choose should use the words essential ail on the bottle. If those words don’t appear it is probable not a pure source. The purer thi oil, the more effective it is. Try to choose a product that is grown organically (without fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides) because foreign substances inhibit the healing effect of the essential oils and could create a skin reaction.

It is a consciously-directed process of energy exchange during which the practitioner uses the hands as a focus to stimulate and enhance the patient’s omm natural healing. The intent of therapeutic touch is always to heal and does not require the recipient to believe in the therapy, just an openness to accept the treatment. Therapeutic touch is often thought of as the laying on of hods, but does not require the practitioner to actually touch the recipient. Some see it as massaging the energy field. Therapeutic touch is taught in over 80 unkersities and colleges worldwide, with broad acceptance in North America. It is now recognized by the College of Nurses of Ontario. In fact, nurses offer therapeutic touch in many hospitals and you can ask for it upon admittance. BENEFXTS OF T?ZERAPEEC TOUCH

Warriors std!EerMac attack by Peter l3rown to Imprint


‘as that the top-ranked team in the nation hosting the Waterloo basketball Warriors last Saturday? And was that the youthhl, rebuilding Warriors taking the MeMaster Marauders to the wire? Yes, and yes. The Warriors almost overcame Titus Charmer’s 29 points, but fell 60-52 last Saturday at Burridge Gymnasium. Waterloo hosts the Lakehead Nor’Westcrs tonight and tomorrow (both games at 8 p.m.). In the only other OUAA West game last weekend, the Lancers topped the B&k Badgers 80-69 in Windsor. The Warriors led McMaster 46-44 with less than eight minutes remaining, but Channer tied it at 46-46 and then converted a steal to put McMastcr ahead for good. With backcourt partner Keegan Johnson on the sidelines with a bruised heel, Channcr had


to do it himself, ringing up 24 second-.half points. Warrior point guard Mano Watsa tipped in a rebound to pull within one, 49-48, but UW sent the Marauders to the charity stripe five times after that, with Mac making good on 7-of- 10 free throws. “You’re never happy to lose a game, but I was pleased with the effort I saw us put forth,” said UW head coach Tom Kieswetter. Sophomore forward Derek Maat led UW with 14 points and 5 re.bounds, while 6-O guard I%[ Gorman grabbed 11 rebounds. Point guard Mano Watsa scored 7 points, shooting just 2of-10 from the field. Mark Eys and Remy Donaldson had 9 and 8 points respectively. “1 want to see;Zsscoring more than 52 points, ” said Kieswetter, “I don’t expect Derek to be our leading scorer, but he is capable of scoring 14 points every time out. We scored over 100 points in each of our last hvo games, so i’m not satisfied with 52 points.”

Y?at [Gormanl’s one of our shortest players and perhaps our worst leaper, but he is smart enough to be where the ball is and tough enough to get down there and fight for the batl.” Whether from the ji ttcrs of the first regular-season game or great defence, both teams had shooting trouble. IJW hit only 35.2 per cent of its shots, including l-of-10 from three-point range, while McMaster fAred little better at 38.5 per cent and 2-of-9 from bevond the arc. “Both teams were pressuring the outside shots,” Kicswetter said. “Both teams were forced into hurrying most of their shots.” bith four minutes left in the first half, LJW lead 24- 17, but McMaster’s Vojo Rusic scored 6 of McMaster’s next eight points, putting the Marauders ahead 2524, only their second lead of the game. UW led 28-27 at the half. Waterloo certainly. has an axe to grind with the Nor’Westers, Waterloo’s opponent tonight and tomorrow night. Lakehead swept

Waterloo 2-O in Thunder Bay last January, by scores of 90-87 (in overtime) and 76-75. Those wins allowed the Nor’Westers to finish in fifth place at 6-8, and put UW in sixth at 5-9. Of course, that sixth seed wasn’t all bad, since it gave Warrior veterans like Tom Balfc and Mark Hopkins the opportunity to avenge playot‘f losses to the third-seeded Cuelph Gryphons. Lakehcad coach Lou Pero has nine players in first and second year, and loses his lending scorer Craig Law. Preseason results have been predictably disappointing for this young team: a l-9 record versus CTAU teams. Because Thunder Bay Iies slightljr outside Southwest&n Ontario, ;he Nor’Wcsters don’t pl;ly on Wednesday nights, instead opting for doubleheaders each weekend. So, the location of WV’s hvo Lakehead games alternates each year, as does the number of home games each OUAA West team enjoys: behveen six and eight.

Squad adds two old gunners by Ryan Pyette I-mprint staff


n a word, explosive. That’s the term best describAing a Waterloo Warrior fourgoal second period bombing that resuIted in the 4-3 vanquishing of the Laurentian Voyageurs last Saturday in the Nickel City Appropriately, “explosive” also describes the forward who set the first pipe-bomb, the dynamite Sheldon Gilchrist, who returns to the lineup for his first regular season game since Waterioo’s Canadian final against Acadia last season. Gilchrist’s newfound presence in the li;eup is coupled with another veteran striker, the volatile Matt St. Germain, another sniper power-packed with TNT. As it stands now, the Warriors presently boast all tweSve forward-who appeared in last spring’s title game. Gilchrist admits he remains, in ,his own words, “a step behind the pace”from his four-month sabbatical from OUAA action, but Coach Don McKee had no troubIe plugging his no-longer secret

weapon into senTice. “I did not expect Sheldon to come back this season, but we welcomed him back with open arms, ” observed Coach McKee. “Sheldon is a player who comes to the rink every night to work hard, he’s intelligent, has good hands, and can pull the string for us? GiIchrist came back to UW for s trictlv academic reasons. Hockey is an added bonus. ‘7 need to upgrade four classes in order to be considered for the National Chiropractic School in Chicago,” points out Gilchrist. “I have no personal goals on this hockey team, only to work hard and contribute.” The Waterloo native feels this edition of the Warriors has just as good a chance at success as last year’s team. “1 kept track of the team in the Fall while playing

the wall with Mike Chambers and Greg EsdAe, a line that blossomed late last year. “It’s like they were never apart on the ice,” boasts McKee. As for St. Germain, who is substituting for the injured Jeff Goidie and set up Peter Brearley’s game-clinching goal over the strong Laurentian squad, the coaching staff must reassess the lineup when Goldie is slated to return in a week’s time. As for now, the team’s focus is on their arch-rivals, the lowly Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks. In last night’s match-up (results unavailable) and Sunday’s home date with the Hawkeys, the Warriors, this time, hope to dehse a potentially explosive situation. The last time the Warriors visited the Ret Centre, they played lousy and drew the wrath of the

McKee, who recently returned afier his stint as Assistant Coach of Canada’s Spengler Cup entry, points to the basic statistics in his assessment of the team’s progress to date. “Last season, we scored 155 goals, and this year, at 69, we’re not halfway where we want to be offensively. There’s a simple reason: the graduation of John Wynnc,” proclaims the Coach. “Defensively, we’ve only allowed 29 goals compared to 89 during last year’s regular season. Joe Harris has been the reason. In Sudbury, Joe kept us in the game while we killed five minor penalties. That was the difference.” The determining factor of Warrior successthis season could culminate in the amount of kaboom in the Black and Gold firepower. With the additions of

the slick winger. “Our only concern is to take care ofour o&n end of the ice, and we’ll be fine.” The two new ‘sticks of dynamite’ present a coaching dilemma for Coach McKee and Coach Crcssman. Gilchrist will play on




“Coach Cressman was irate in between periods,” remembers McKee. ‘The players have looked loose in preparation _-_ for this se_ries, and Cressie likes that, so we’d better play well to stay on his good side.”

Friday, ‘January 17, 1997

Varsitv Roundup A$g~~ Athza Badetbalf The Athenas got off to a great regularseason start in 1997 with a 60-55 overtime win over the touted McMaster Marauders in Hamilton on Saturday. McMaster was tagged as an OWIAA West title contender in the earIy season. The Athenas played strong defense in the first haIf, holding McMaster to 27 points, but only scored 21 of their own. The pattern exactly reversed in the second half, however, when Waterloo outscored the Marauders, 27-2 1, forcing overtime. Key free throw shooting from rookie Kelly Burroughs helped the Athenas outscore McMaster 12-7 in the overtime period. Guard Jodi Hawley was Waterloo’s high scorer with 22 points and was named Athena Athlete of the Week. Jacalyn White added 15 points and Mary Frances Lapthorne scored ten. The Athenas are at home this Friday and Saturday nights, hosting the Lakeheid Nor’Westers, at 6 pm. Both Warrior and Athena swim teams finished third to the p6werful squads from Guelph and Western at the WateriooGuelph Invitational meet held Friday in the PAC pool and Saturday in Guelph. The men scored 679 points, just 20 behind Western . in second, while the Athenas totalled 3855 points, well back of Western’s 851. Guelph won the overall event with

1712 total points. Individual highlights on the Warrior side included Andrew Moffat’s wins in the 200 and 400 metre individual medley events. Moffatt was aIso third in the 50 metre breaststroke and was named the Warrior Athlete of the Week. UW’s Anthony Tham captured the 200 metre breaststroke event and was second to fellow Warrior John MiLne in the 50 metre butterfly (Milne won in 26.95). Tham edged out Milne in the 100 metre butterfly for a 1-2 UW finish. MiIne was also second in the 50 metre freestyle, while Warrior Nenad Minic won the 400 metre freestyle. Among Athenas, Amy Jarvis took the 200 metre butterfly and the 200 metre individual medley, Val Walker was best in both the 50 and 100 metre breaststroke events and second to Jarvis in the 200 individual medley. The Athenas began 1997 with a 3-O loss to the strong McMaster Marauders at the PAC on Friday. On the score sheet the result was an improvement over the team’s first meeting with the Marauders, but coach Corinne Williams was disappointed with her squad’s “overaJ1 execution.” Waterloo led 6-4 early in the first set but then ran out of gas and dropped the game 15-7. Service rcccytion crumbled in the second set for the Athenas and McMaster

dominated, winning 15-2. Trailing 10-2 in the third. Waterloo’s big: gun Colleen Deloyer came up with thF”TSN turning point” kill, said Williams, and the Athenas mounted a comeback to 10-S. But it was not enough, McMaster’s tough serving proved the difference as they closed out the set, and the match, 15-8. Showing definite signs of improvement in individual and team play, the Warrior volleyball team played a&ressively but fell 3- 1 to the University of Kegina in the consolation final of the Ryerson tournament on Saturday in Toronto. Waterloo compiled a l-2 record in pool play. They began with a hard-fought, four-set loss to efrentual tournament winners, the UNB Varsity Reds, then beat Guelph bv a 3-l scori and lost another closebne to Ryerson, 3- 1. In the consolation semi-finals, Waterloo knocked off a stubborn Brock team, 3- 1, with some timely defensive saves and stuff blocks. Team captain Jason Hubbard was the team’s most efZective passer and attacker at the tournament. Power hitter Jeff Lingard returned to his early-season form and was a formidable force from the left side. The Warriors now enjoy a week-long break from formal competition. Their first league match is slated for Wednesday, Januarq’22, at home against Windsor. -

UW not looking back on track Two more records fall in T.O+ by John M-ranco special to Imprint


he season is panning out just as expected for the Waterloo Warriors and Athcnas Track and Field teams after the phenomenal performance at Western’s Season Opener last November. The team came out of that meet with 18 personal bests, four CIAU qualifiers and four school records. This weekend, Waterloo traveled toToronto to take part in the York University Invitational. Again, the runners came up with a stellar performance: 18 more personal bests, arld another three CIAU standards, and two school records. In the women’s sprints, Rachael Nickie and Heather Mnyse


the show,


third and fifth respectively in the 60m, then coming back to PB en route to second and fourth place ii nishes in the 3OUm. N&e’s 60m time of 7.83 was a personal best. ~Moyse and Nickie were joined by team captain Jill Bennett and

rookie Blanka Sharma to take third place in the women’s 4x200m relay. Captain Bennett also came third in the 60m hurdles. Judith Leroy and Sarah Dillabaugh were once again unstoppable in the women’s distance events. Sarah surpassed the CIAU standard for the 3000m and in doing so broke the barely two month old school record set by teammate Leroy at the Western meet. Dillabaugh’s time was 9:4&l& Leroy competed in the 15OOm and also qualified for CI’s, with a winning time of 4:35.71. These two incredible women are on pace to rewrite the Waterlo0 record books this season. Diuabaugh and Leroy were not done yet, however, as they were joined by Kim Ross and Sepanta Don-i, all members of the CIAU champion cross country team, to’ form the Athena? 4x800m relay team. The Waterloo women shattered the school and meet records, and easily made the CIAU standard, with a time of 9:20.4. Ross, Dorri, and Leroy all ran PB’s for

their legs of the race. Ross also PB’ed in the the 1500m, finishing eighth in a time of 5:04.92. The men’s distance team also ran well, with John Lofranco finishing fifth in the 1500m in a personal best time of 4:18.51. Chris Payton also ran a best time in the 1500m, andMikeTripp ran his fastest 3000m ever. With aU this constant improvement, the f’uture looks bright for the Warriors distance squad. Kwame Smart and Cohn Alie PB’ed and Tulu Makonnen finished eighth in the men’s 60m. Smart, Makonnen, Chris McPherson and Tory Locker completed the men’s 4x200m team, who fmished an excellent third overall. Smart, Makonnen and McPherson teamed up with Chris Bascie,as

IMPRINT, DisuppoiWments

The NHL rolls into San Jose for the all-star game tomorrow night, after a half season the league has pretty much laid itself out according to most post season predictions (with the exception of CliffFletcher’s ideas that the Leafs could notch 90 points). The Flvers, Avalanche and Penguins are joined by the Stars and Panthers to form the leagues elite, with the Red Wings, Rangers and Sabres hot on their heels. The happiest team in the league has to be the NY Islanders, who are looking at not only their pick in the 1997 Draft, which should likely fall in the top five, but the Leafs pick too, another top five choice. Add that to the best young defence in hockey, a developing goaltender and a few good forwards, and the Islanders are delinitely a team to watch. Below are a few more of the years big surprises, disappointments and sotne things you just had to know would happen. SU~‘S&S

Lack of offense: Shut-outs are at an alltime high, as either the goaltenders are a hell of a lot better, or the dilution of talent caused by expansion is now becoming apparent. Buffalo Sabres: Battling Pittsburgh for the lead in the Northeast Division, they’ve

lost their top player and show no signs of being phased. Youngsters like Brian Holzinger, Jason Dawe and Matthew Barnaby have stepped into the breach, playing solid, fundamental and most importantly, winning hockey, Mats Sundin: After floating through two seasons with the Leafs, Sundin has finally lived up to the expectations Toronto fans held after the big deal for Wendel Clark. He’s averaging well over a point per game, is an All-Star and is leading the team on the ice. Dallas Stars: Stifling defense, timely offense and the surprise of the year in Andy Moo@ goaltending. Wayne Gretzky: 1 thought he was washed up, but hey, more than 60 points at the halfway point in the season is not washed up by any standard. Colorado Avalanche: Proving to be more than a two horse show, the Av’s have lost their three top scorers plus their top pest for long periods of time this season, and have proven to have the best depth in the conference. Oleg Tverdosky : Traded to Phoenix (then Winnipeg) in a package for Teemu Selanne so expectations were high. Oleg has put up great offense numbers and played decent defense, becoming an all-star in just his seiond season.

Alexander Mogilny and Pave1 Bure: #S9 and #96 have yet to click in the year and a half since Mogilny was acquired by the Canucks. Previous to his current streak, Pave1 just didn’t seem capable of scoring anymore and Moginly has skemed lost without Pat Lafontaine setting him up. Montreal Canadiens: Yes, injuries have taken their toll, but even their healthy players are playing uninspiring and the defence is atrocious. Paul Coffey: Whined his way out of Hartford. Has had a mediocre season, even by Jamic Macoun’s standards, but is on the all-star tear-n.He has nearly as many all-star appearances in his career as points this year. Has no on heard of Ed Jovanovski or Bryan Berard? Both are more worthv than the aging and unimpressive Coffey. Vitali Yachmenev: Reaped the benefits of playing with Wayne Gretzky more than anyone since Jari’Kurri, putting up more than twenty goals last year. ‘This season, without Wiyne, three. That’s notverygood. Ed Belfour: Disappointing play and a disappointment to the team. Chicago’s last franchise player is on the way out, which must be good news for Blackhawk tightwad Bill Wirtz.



17, 1997

suwit mmiqg Hartford Whalers: They got off to a hot start, even with Paul CoEep moping around, but are now mired in a slump that has seen them not only fd out of first place in the Northeast Conference, but also below SOO. Just not enough talent to keep them a winner, but by the time they move out of Hartford, they’ll be a much better team. Mike Keenan: You build a crappy team, you trade away great players for mediocre ones and you feud with the last remaining superstar on the team. Then, you get to walk away owed millions ofdollars. Way to go Mike. Ottawa Senators: Still not a .500 team,’ but they’re much improved and fmally getting consistent production from Alexandre Daigle. If they had a healthy defence, they could actually be in playoff contention. Boston B&s, Chicago Blackhawks and Toronto Maple Leafs: Cheap owners and bad deals don’t win games, and it certainly won’t in these original six cities. As a little aside, if you have any feedback or topics you’d like to see covered in The Fan, please e-mail them to the address in the banner.

Americans are dumb The United States sports media has a way of making its superstars seem larger than life, while diminishing the achievements of others not fortunate enough to be competing under the Stars and Stripes. We all saw the Olympics last summer. There was a new American sweetheart or hero everyday while the rest of the world seemed to be conspiring to bring down the mighty red, white, and blue machine. What is the measure of a good athlete? What standards should be used to determine a stellar performance? Simple. Anything that favours American athletes. First of all, I must say that American runner Michael Johnson was a deserving winner of the Associated Press male athlete of the year award. He deserved it more than Donovan Bailey (but not by much), based on his two individual gold medals and the shatteringofthe 200m world record. However, we can see evidence of American favouritism already. French runner MarieJose Perec also completed the 200-400 double on the women’s side, but the American media made hardly a whimper abut it. Oh; wait! I forgot, Perec isn’t American, so her performance couldn’t have been that impressive. So, fine, Johnson deserved to win. However, Bailey’s accomplishments can’t be overlooked e&her. When a man wins the 1OOm dash at the Oiympic Games and throws in a world record to boot, that man is generally believed to be the World’s Fastest Man. Wait! The rules have changed. Since an American didn’t do it, then maybe that man isn’t the World’s FastestMan afier all. So, I guess this means that the World’s Fastest Man is the World’s Fastest Amti-

cnn . That makes sense. VVhat seems really dumb about the voting for the aforementioned AP athlete of the year is that while Johnson won in a relative landslide, Bailey received absolutely no votes for the award. VVhat’s eyen tinier is that a bloodyhome (Cigar) got mo votes. A horse. Wait! There’s more! Professional wrestler “Nature Boy” Ric Flair got a vote as well. Now, while I love pro wrestling, even I can admit that these guys have no business even being considered for this award. Apparently an old, out of shape wrestler who lost the WCW world title last year is a better athlete than the 1OOm world record holder and Olympic champion. No wonder Bailey complained about getting no respect from the American media. Well, when Sports Illustrated, normally a publication that has some integrity, found out about this, they ran an editorial .blasting Bailey and calling him a whiner. They said that his legs should run and not his mouth. They even questioned abut what criteria BaiIev could use to even think that he was the gorld’s Fastest Man tier what Johnson accomplished. Uh, yours (referring to the American media) perhaps? So, for the time being, the American presscan take their sportier-than-thou moral high ground and call Michael Johnson the World’s Fastest Man and athlete of the year. Meanwhik, aU of us fat, out of shape Canadians can sit around in our igloos, drinking our beer and talking about who will win the 150m showdown between Johnson and Donovan Bailey on May 3 1 in Toronto, the glorious capita: =A Canada. Good thing the Skydome will be closed; we’re expecting a blizzard that day.

Hamlet directed by Ahweth Bmna~h York Theatre by Greg Picken Imprint staff t’s a credit to the city ofToronto that it was chosen along with New York and Los Angeles for the advanced screening of the full, four-hour edit of Kenneth Rranagh’s latest Shakespearean masterpiece, Na7&t. . This version ofHamletis as true to the original Wipt as possible, commas and everything. Whire some might f-md this somewhat dull, preferring instead a tighter, more interpretive performance, to finally seeHamlet exactly as Shakespeare intended certainly made this production worth seeing. The cast is an interesting mix of stagetrained &.nglish actors, a fewaotable English film stars and a number of Atnericans in cameo appearances. And the division is quite notable, with the stage trained actors excelling, the film stars filling in the holes and the Amuicans in minor roles that don’t realIy add or take away anything from the movie. The highlight is, of course, Kenneth Branagh as Hamlet. He plays the Dane


with an obvious love for the character, mixing humour and intensity to draw in the audience’s sympathy. Granted his portrayal, and in fact the entire tilt-n, is something of an ego trip, but as in the past, .he pulls it off with the st$e you’d expect from Shakespeare. Kate Winslet, another stage trained actress, is mesmerizing as Ophelia, giving a convincing performance of a woman driven into madness. The other standout actor was Derek Jacobi as Claudius, a role which is often left understated, but in this version is given its due. The-best part of%nzlet is the appearance. If not for the acting, this movie should receive a number of nominations for its technical aspects. Instead of staying in the traditional Elizabethan costume, Branagh makes one change and moves the production ahead,to 19”’ century Czarist. The costumes and the sets’ were all constructed accordingly, with a lot of gold and r& .flourishes throughout. The majority of the movie tak& place in and around Elsinore, portrayed here by Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England. It is majestic and certainly worthy. The interior layout of the castle is intriguing as well. There is the central ballroom, which is done up very ornately, with a balcony running around the top and mirrored doors all around the perimeter, leading off into

To be or not to be, eh? the bowels of the castle. This layout allows for almost ever-vkev scene to m&e through a door and end “p in this ballroom. The mirrored doors come into play during the famous “To be or not to be” speech, in which Hamlet speaks not to the audience, but to his reflection in the mirror and unknowingly to Polonius and Claudius, who are spying on him from behind the door. The cinematography is excellent. This is the first major British movie filmed in C’

70mm in over twenty-five years and allows for some magnificent shots, including the amassed armies ofNorway marching across the northern plains of Denmark in the background as Hamlet recites his soliloquy to end the fourth act. The rest of the world will be treated to an edited, 35mm version when Hamlet is distributed globally, but if you’re a big fm of Shakespeare or Branagh, it’s likely not worth recommending this movie, since you’ve probably already seen it.



The film, which on occasion feels like an extended music video, shows a lot of scenes of Eva giving to the peer and collecting charity. Ske also takes the time by Patti Lenard to kiss babies-the sign of a good leader.

Fed Hall Saturday, January 11 by Stephanie Speller special to Imprint


aturday night at Fed Hall is a night that I, along with many, will not forget for a whiIe. Glueleg and 1 Mother Earth put on a sold-out show that went above and beyond excellent. When Glueleg came on, the place was close to being filled. Adrenaline pumping and anxious to get the crowd going, Rubin came out wearing an exquisite orange top hat and jumping around the stage. Opening with “Pistons,” Glueleg demanded the crowd to ccJump, jump, mothefickers!” The effort was there, but only a select few jumped around like motherfuckers. Glueleg did, however; put on an

memorable concert. The last part of their performance consisted ofclassics from the album nz&, including “Rain Will Fall,” “Raspberry,” and coming back for an encore with CLNot Quite Sonic.” After the show, I had a ch;lnce to talk with the members of IME about their slow success in the States, and if they think they will ever break there. Edwin explained that if it wasn’t for “the band playing live for four to five years and word of mouth in the States,” they would not be where they are now in the American industry. They sold over 100,000 copies of 133 in the US, but that doesn’t compare to the gold it received in Canada. Before the show, one girl asked Edwin to squeeze her nipple so she could “remember this night fijrevcr. ” Edwin, thank God, did not squeeze her nipple, but instead signed an autograph,

excellent show, playing popular songs like “Seesaw Man” and finishing off the set with “Clap Happy.” I ,Mother Earth opened with “One More Astronaut,” and the inevitable mosh pit began. Their perf&mance was incredible, and it was evident that IME was just as psyched to l-x there aseveryone else was. Edwin loves his audience, and showed his appreciation by exclaiming that “Nothing sounds better to me than a whole fucking room till of people!” The band enjoyed having the crowd participate-as much as possible, and the audience was more than happy to sing the chorus for “Another Sunday.” For the first half of the show, IME played songs oft their Latest album, Sccnny rind FisC;, Filled with unique percussion b!r Daniel Mansilla and occasional cowbell and rainstick by Edwin and Bruce, IME knows how to put on a

or the second year in a row, just as exams were getting started, Toronto finall!r got some good shows. Once again I found myself with a tough decision to make, and for the second year in a row, I chose good music over good grades. His Name Is Alive took the stage shortly after IO:00 p.m. and right from the start it was obvious we were going to hear nothing even remotely similar to their sound on CD. Halfway through their first song my friend turned to me and said, “Guess who’s been listening to Stereolab?” With the exception of the vocals, the song could have been taken right off any Stereolab album, but the funny thing was they were playing an old song that on CD sounds nothing like


2685 Kingsway Drive,KITCHENER

519-893-9000 http://autor&.com/fairviewacura ride to UW or WLU available

Stereola b. The main differences in their sound were the keyboards, played by Karen Oliver, which featured prominently and are nowhere to be heard ori CD. During their short set HNIA played some old and new songs which varied from sounding Stereolab-influenced to blues-influenced, the only consistency being they sound&l nothing like on CD. Mark Kozelek took the stage following HNIA and proceeded to play a beautiful solo acoustic piece, The thing that struck me first of all was the strength of Kozelek’s voice. I always viewed him as more of a great songjvritcr than a great vocalist but his voice was very powerful. The three other members of the band joined Kozelek on stage for the second song and the band broke into a gut-wrenching f’ifteen-minute version ofEvil.“This was without a doubt one of the greatest pieces of live music I’ve ever witnessed. I would have been happy if they would have plaved that s’ong all night. The crowd’for

the most part seemed to agree as they stood mesmerized. For someone who writes such slow, depressing songs Kozelek displayed a surprising sense of humour. His comments served well to liven up the crowd bctween songs. He would often break into cheesy cover songs like “White Christm&’ and Rush’s “Fly By Night,” then stop and laugh with the crowd. He introduced “Mistress” as being “about some fucking bitch that I hate” to a large applause. After playing for two-and-ahalf hours, K&clck stepped awa\ from the microphone and proceeded to play “Summer Dress” without the aids of amplification as the crowd hushed to a neardead silence. A terrific way, to end a terrific show, Kozelek has already proven himself to be one of the greatest songwriters in music today and with this show, Red House Painters showed they are also an unbelievable live band. This is a combination very few bands can put together.

midst the ghosts of once “happy clams,” this A vening at the Old Button Factory had a turnout of few ofthese less-than-ecstatic mollusks (well, none as a matter of fact), but many music-loving youngsters anticipating a night of exciting indic rock. The bands drew quite a diverse “alternative” audience varying from pseudo-punks to &it-pop fans. Paintbox sounds like your typical garage rock band (read: unpolished noise). Although the) have e!lough talent to attract a small following of adoring fans, their 1~1: of mobility on stage makes tllcm boring to watch, even to the sapllisticuted Paintbox fan. Towards the end of their set, Paintbox performed a cover of Sloan’s “The Good in Evervone,” which was .anear massacre’of the original. They took a spectacular song and turned it into an off-key nightmare. But perhaps we’re being too critical. Although it’s nothing that hasn’t been done before, their material has what it t&es to be reasonably popular in the indie music scene. But please, for ever)rone’s sake,stay away from the Sloan covers, guys. Like a Blue, on thi other hand,

Opening their show with a tribute to Keith Moon, Like a Blue broke into a set of bluesy tunes somewhat reminiscent of The Who and old Rolling Stones. Their songs ranged in sound from an enticing Bond-like spy theme entitled “WellDressed Man” to Suede-like guitar riffs and vocals, minus the outright flamboyance. The upbeat vocals and great dance moves ofvocalist Tavi Triance gave the audience a refreshing taste of to- It’s not politically correct to make jokes about day’s Brit pop scene, guys with limp wrists anymore, so we won’t, displaying a combinaphoto by lieni Ghan tion of the stylin’ moves of Suede’s Brett And-erson fact, play their guitars behind their and the charm of Shed Seven’s heads better than most bands can Rick Witter.

he volunteers at CKMS would like to welcome everyone back to Waterloo, and invite you all to once again tune into 100.3 FM, as I’m sure it was sorely missed over the hoiidays. The winter term of 1997 should prove to be another season of interesting, entertaining, and informative



the same innovative attitude you’ve come to know and love as Waterloo’s own. CKMS is dedicated and indebted to the UW students for funding and listenership, and once again we thank you for your support, In the tradition that is only a few months old, Live to Air will continue bringing the University

of Waterloo population information regarding our programming, programmingwhichincorporates news, music, and information and specialty programming. Today I’d like to tell you about Womertspin, a program that airs each Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 PM. Wommspin celebrates many aspects ofwomen in music, from artists to cornmu& events. Not only does the listene; get two hours of quality- music, but we also focus on women in the industry, music production, woAen’s issues addressed in music, and much more. Wmenspin plays a variety of music by and for both women and men, as women’s music continues to grow and diversify. It is often wrongly assumed that women shine mainly in foIk

and lighter music, an assumption that our programmers tend to disagree with. If you tune into Womeq%z, you’ll hear music from folk, to rap, to industrial, right across the board. We know you won’t be disappointed. Our format is very flexible, conforming only to the issues and themes that your hosts, Laurie and I, may wish to address. As at any other time, we play damn good music, most of which you couldn’t hope to hear if it weren’t for community radio. Make CKMS a part of your daily radio regimen. Catch Womenspin Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. But we’d like to remind you that Womenspin is only one of our many programs c:i Interest, as you’ll discover when you tune into CKMS 100.3 FM.

Bad as it seems by Greg Picken Imprint std en a Canadian musician toils in obscurity, it’s very cool to applaud them, to wish they would do better and to buy their albums. As soon as they make it big, it’s even more cool to bash them, call them seWouts, to criticize their every move and moreover, to utterly revile them. This fate has befallen Bryan Adams, Corey I-Iart and even Platinum Blonde. But when a Canadian artist reaches success then puts out a weak second efyort, he dcscrvcs to be criticized. Not because it’s cool ‘to criticize, not because it’s cool not to like them, and not because it’s a part of our cultural identity. It’s because Muviq GJW@ is boring. Hayden’s first full album, Eveythiqg I Lund For, was a terrific album-very honest, very open and not overdone. Sure, it seemed part of that new 104 trend popularized in Canada by Eric’s Trip, but it was just so well done that it was hard not to like it. Add

By Scott Preston special to Imprint Any band who achieves worldwide popularity under the pretenses of being silly and without struggling in small clubs for years will always be the victims of a backlash, no matter what the quality of their next album. Such is the plight of this band. While most people got the joke on the first album, a lot of people have stopped laughing. Yes, this band does write songs about frogs and tiny cars, but the thing is that the songs are so catchy that you can’t help but tap your feet along to the music.

in a very intimate live performance, and you have the makings of a very promising career. IS it really that bad when the nicest thing I can say about this disc is that it’s only eight songs long? I think so . The seven tracks plus one hidden track all seem to fall into each other, creating what appears to be one long, boring song. That slice ofeveryday life style that permeated Everything ILong For dominates this album.‘ For example, “Old Fashioned Wav” is a son’g about Hayden get&g a haircut, , but it seems really forced and lacks that sutble, cbmmon wit. Nothing swoons like “Bad as they seem,” nothing booms like %-I September.” Dull. Boring. Blah. And that’s a comment that pretty much sums up this whole album. It’s just forced. The time was right for a follow-up effort, but it should have been something a little more interesting that Movzkg Care&i. One cute thing is the packaging, harkening to the also trendy retro style. Instead of the standard plastic jewel case, the CD comes in a cardboard case very reminiscent of old Ll? cover, covered with photgraphs taken by Hayden himself! Yeeha!

HunnyTruck are about as original astheir name in the “indie rock scene.” Put an adjective with a noun and you get a four piece rock band. As a supporter ofmost London bands, I find it disappointing to hear such an overdone sound coming from their breeding ground of new talent. HunnyTruck’s ten track album entails just over half an hour of typical guitar drone and teendirected lyrics except for the fact that they spell “loser” wrong (a word most garage bands know well). Apparently a video is com-

by Scott Preston special to Imprint While walking through a local record store in search of a new CD, I spotted this album under a heading labelled “alternative.” It just-goes to show how bland this moniker has become, because this album sounds about as “alternative” as Tom Petty. The lead singer of the band

Imprint sing-along choruses, The pop sometimes becomes laced with country bursts as in “Froggie” and “Bath of Fire” and rocks full force during songs like “Tiki God” and “Toob Amplifier.” Although their guitars lack 6 strings, their songs never sound hollow, and have much more substance than most bands who have 20 more strings. Also, the use of a cow bell for percussion adds diversity to the sound that separates them from most cookie-cutter bands. You may not hear this album in heavy rotation at Phil’s, but if you like songs that are catchy, you won’t be disappointed,


This is a completely unique record. Katia is aEuropeanclassitally trained pianist who has taken an interest in listening to and playing jazz. She is a world-renowned musicianwhose perfomances with her sister Marielle have earned the sisters international acclaim. On this album, Katia duets with many of the world’s legendary jazz musicians. This album is a tribute to American pianist Bill Evans, whose work with Miles Davis brought a more European sensibility to the use of piano in jazz. The classical European-trained musicians

as exceptions to the rule. Katia is attempting to discourage this reputation. Evans used overdubbing to create improvised duets and trios on her Conver.&uns with My&J and the duets played here bring back memories of these efforts.

Both of Evans’s compilations which appear on this album are played with Chick Corea. Corea improvises on “Turn Out the Stars,” with Katia’s prepared improvisation. The result is beautifill. I Herbie Hancock improvises a conversation with two of his earlier selves by playing the introduction of “My Funny Valentine” by Rodgers and Hart from Davis’ 1964 album follow+ by Katia’s playing Hancock’s interpretatioi from1978. Herbie then $ays new material to Katia’s performance of his 1968 interpretation. The roles are reversed again asHerbie takes over for the closing minute. It’s an eleven-minute, entirely breathtaking jazz interpretation. Other duets are performed with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Joe Zawinul, Michel Camilo and Marielle Labeque (Katia’s sister).

This album is very bland, and after listening to it once, I wanted to go and study and hand in all my assignments early. This album isn’t totally devoid of its merits, but doesn’t really break any musical ground that hasn’t been touched upon by the likes of the Counting Crows, Cracker, or Bruce Springsteen, for that matter.

Dogs o’ da universe unite! Doctor Funkenstein serves up some fonkee grooves with a little help fern his famous friends. Q-Tip, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes and Digital Underground all make appearances on this 12-track collection of remixed Parliament Funkadelic and Clinton solo work. For someone who started listening to rap in the late 1980’s or early nineties, this album is an excellent chapter in the history of funk, rap, soul and rock and roll (no, the Beastie Boys did not invent all that stuff on their own). “Mothership Connection Starchild (Fully Equipped Remix)” and “Booty Body Ready for the Plush Funk” are pure fL.nk gold.

Neurotic Outsiders Bush X

I hadn’t intended for this review to be a compact discussion, but this album was so boring there was no way I could write more than 100 words on it. Featuring such notable artists as Sonic Youth, XTC, Elastica, and Beck, this album is pretty much a write-off. Most of the songs are irretrievably dull, and there are none that I felt inclined to give more than two or three spins: A pathetic attempt to cash in on the Christmas shopping binge. Skip it.


Various Artists

Razorblade Suitcase Traiwna A disappointing follow-up to their smash debut 16 &VW, proving ail of their critics absolutely right. ‘The Bon Jovi ofGrunge,” as I’ve heard them called, have managed to come up with a really well-produced album (Steve Albini at the controls) of songs that all sound exactly the same. The grunge formula has been followed to the letter, and the result is just dull. “Swallowed” is about asgood as it gets, if you don’t mind he self-indulgent “no one undcrstands the real me” lyrics. If this album sells, it’s the result of Gavin Kossdale’s cheekbones, not his songwriting ability.

Marc alternative bands banding together for a good, socially active cause. In this case it’s to remember two women who were gunned down in Boston area women’s health clinics. Safe and Sound was a series of concerts in the Boston area to raise money for non-profit organizations supporting health care, stiety, and educational services for women and children. An album was the next logic step. This album’s roster features the likes of alt-poppers Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Juliana Hatfield, Letters to Cleo, Belly, Buffalo Tom, Mary Lou Lord, and more. Solid songs, good cause, decent compilation album. -GP

Have you hard the one about the Sex Pistol, the Duran Duraner and the two Guns and Roses members who formed a band and released an album? It’s no joke (well, that’s in the eye of the beholder), it’s the Neurotic Outsiders. There is no question that these guys can play 90’s punk proficiently. No current band has anything on these guys as far as musicianship, but then of course that’s not the point. I look for more than just thrashy drums and driving guitar in my power pop. What this band lacks, even with its obvious pedigree, is a sound or point of view or song approach that would set them apart from the hundreds of fresh, new bar& that play the same kind of music. -rL
