By W. REXFORD1IBENOIT
What makes a rock group
good in the end is the strength
of their vision of the world.
The Beatles had it for a while,
and perhaps still do. Their vis-
ion was of a good, kind world
in which everyqne makes enough
money, but doesn't hide behind
a wall of bread.
In the Beatles' world Christ-
ianity was dusted off, and the
new Gospel said the beggar was
still better than the Queen be-
cause he still had his fortune to
make..
In their world, the I-object
relationship was put in place,
and while still essential, was
subjugated to the I-thou, and
everything would be fine if wq
all had the goods we wanted
while we loved our neighbors.'
"Lucy in the Sky" was a vis-
ion of material things we could
all attain if we only fixed our
heads and said it really doesn't
matter if I'm wrong I'm right.
Look to thyself and be en-
riched, we were told, enriched in
more ways than one, because the
world loves a lover, maybe even
lays some bread on him.
That was a tremendous ad-
vance because it mirrored our
minds, dealt with a problem we
pondered - materialism, and
who still. thought music was
only for the times a good woman
had left >you?
Big Brother and Janis Jop-
lin (bless her soul) also had a
clear vision, but lost it some-
where while trying to furnish
the house with more expensive
things.
When Janis sang "Come on,"
quivering under her dress, thou-
sands of kids had a sex goddess.
Music for balling parties is
what Big Brother laid down
quinte'ssentially, and what we
would've given for an invite to
one of those parties - not
kno wing that~~ifwemweren't
there to begin with, we couldn't
have enjoyed it.
Court appealP
involves Iin g
WASHINGTON (P) - The Su-
preme Court was asked yesterday
to ,clear the late Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King Jr. from conviction in
a Birmingham civil rights march
five years before his slaying.
King was among 52 marchers
arrested for parading without a
permit during an Easter week-
end protest in 1963.
The appeal was carried to the
Supreme -Court on behalf of the
Rev. Fred L. Shuttlesworth, o n e
of- the civil. rights leaders arrest-
ed .during the Birmingham de-
monstration.
Civil rights attorneys said t h e
test case before the court would
set the pattern for 1500 adult and
juvenile arrests made on parading
charges during the Birmingham
protests five years ago.

Repent The
Gracie Slick, by the timne she
reached the Jefferson Airplane,
had a vision, too, a sharp-ed-
ged metallic vision of 'a world
where events control people.
"White Rabbit," and "Plastic
Fantastic Lover," I'm told,
weren't just songs, but ways of
life (when Haight-Ashbury was
young).;
Which brings me to the group
I really want to write a b o u t.
Andy Warhol's Velvet Under-
ground.
The VU is precisely ,where I
had hoped the Stones 'were go-
ing, that place where politics
has failed, where people com-
municate (if they do at all) in
some kind of telepathic vision of
nightmares we all had once and
are beginning to have more frA-
quently.

end is near!
four-beat figures and becomes
the most ominous noise possible.
It evokes a world where people
do things over and over again,
because there's nothing else to
do, no way to act effectively.
Particularly in "Waiting, For
the Man (on Verve's The Velvet
Underground and Nico) ". Could
any other, drummer in the world
sustain the basic 1234 and make
it complex far beyond its reality
like Maureen Baker?
The VU's John Cale, the heav-
iest bass player in the world/
country, has a precise idea of
the source of beat and rhythm
in the division of time, but in
the division of emotion intq
significantly repetitious musical
entities.
I won't write down any of the
lyrics. Get into them yourselves
in the privacy of your own
chamber of horrors and dark
fantasies.
But remember what William
Burroughs said in Soft Machinei
"Storm the reality studio and
retake the universe - the real-
ity, film is giving and buckling
like a bulkhead under pres-
sure - burned, metal smell of
interplanetary war in the raw
noon streets swept by screaming
glass blizzards of enemy flak."
That's the VU's vision. If you
can admit the possibility of its
validity, write me and tell if you
have a better answer than the
VU puts out in "Heroin."

entering) a vote horizontally to as-
sure that the counting machine as-
signs the vote to the person named
to the left, (c) may move upward
(by erasing and reentering) a vote
one column when the vote has been
placed between the correct columns,

messy to be cleaned by erasing,
make out a new ballot faithful to
the intention of the original.

"FADING

FALL"

A vision that ends in drugs, or
insanity, or is, simply, the end.
Maybe the Christian concepts
of life are dead.
What kind of advice will John
Lennon have when the air raid
sirens sound the end of the
earth?
The VU lixes with the sweetY
girl next door who is waiting
with a whip in your bedroom,
while a mechanical monster
could vaporize you in a milli-
second, so what matters any-
more?,
i Their use of drone and feed-
back (a hundred times better
than Hendrix on "Are You Ex-
perienced?") gets the message to
you on some level other than
music and words; and their ter-
rible vision becomes a potential
reality for each listener.
The drone is not always heard,
but always felt, like a fifth
musician. It becomes an elemen-
tal force, rather than a musical
device.
With the Beatles, for example,
it's too often the latter. But
with the VU, the drone welds it-
self to repetition of the s a m e
