Slightly crazed but
special way of song

Shines, Crudup ...
...empty alley

Durer: Contrasting.
the multimedia art

Tongue hanging out the side
of his mouth down into his
beard, eyes closed and the rest
of his face tightened into a
grimace or a grin, Loudon
Wainwright III whined out his
songs at the Ark last night. From
a non-chalant, affable, stage
presence between songs, he broke
into singing with comical con-
tortions. His. whole appearance
was of one slightly crazed.
Wainwright sings his own
songs. He has a special way of
turning a pat or funny phrase
into a description of a finely
felt emotion or thought. Of rock,
'n' roll origin, with rock 'n' roll
strum and beat, no fancy finger-
picking-his music is not flashy,
not is it overly intense. But his
songs, when not outright funny,
are laughter about things that
"I know I'm unhappy
Know things aren't right
For instance last week
I got drunk every night.
I know that I'm angry
I know I'm afraid
I rarely make love
I mostly get laid.
* * *
When you get hung up
Hang yourself up by your

What the hell, what the hell
What the heck."
He doesn't sing it painfully, but
not light-heartedly either. It's
hard to put a finger on the per-
spective behind his songs. Comic
acceptance of a bittersweet life?
Maybe nothing that philosophi-
cal. A funny line in his most
serious song and the audience
bursts out laughing,
I think you will be happy
to know
I don't love you no more
At least not in the same
old way
That little tune I wrote
about you last year
It was a lousy tune.
Cause I'm a wise owl
I don't give a hoot.
Loudon's voice ranges from an
almost whisper to a squeak.
Sometimes gentle, more often
high-pitched with a hard to de-
scribe quality. His contortions
sometimes add, sometimes de-
tract from his songs, but are
always conspicuous. The silences
between his songs are filled with
toe - tapping a n d spaced - out
glances at the ceiling..But the
audience loved it. He was
strange, but it was great.

Last night at the Alley there
were two old bluesmen and a
lot of chairs, some people-about
fifteen, and some very good
m u s i c. The t w o musicians:
Johnny Shines and Arthur "Big
Boy" Crudup, both playing un-
accompanied, low-amplified gui-
At first nobody knew if the
show was going to go on-who
wants to play before fifteen peo-
ple, and obviously not too many
people want to pay $2.25 to hear
Big Boy Crudup-the place was
empty when lead act Johnny
Shines walked up to. play.
Shines plyed clear, night time
music, distinct star notes, shin-
ing-open-air music, spacious like
a drive-in movie, you could have
driven a car into that mellow
Park yourself, and listen to
Johnny Shines, running beauti-
ful single-note runs, playing up
and down the scale-blue notes
and otherwise, using his slide-
it was Blind Lemon Jefferson,
Robert Johnson, Lonnie Johnson,
it was everybody-Johnny Shines
Johnny Shines usually plays
with a Chicago blues band, but
when he travels he plays solo,
it's less hassle than bringing
sidemen-it's more money for
him. Last night his versatile
voice carried him along without

any help from anybody, his voice.
alone can imitate about four dif-
ferent ranges and -intonations;
that would have been supplied
by sidemen. His control of dy-
namics, both with his voice and
guitar, is honed with experience.
He plays stellar sounds.
"Big Boy" Crudup is well.
known for having supplied some
inspiration to Elvis Presley, but
Crudup is primarily a straight
blues man-nothing fancy, noth-
ing much rocking, mostly sing-
ing hard-time songs, with heavy
rhythmic guitar, and sweet vo-
Crudup played all his stand-
ards, Rock Me Mama, and he
was good, he had to be, and his
guitar wasn't like Shines fist
picking, it was the more primi-
tive, or more fundamental chord
strumming-it was moody blues.
Both men are shy and not used
to the whole white blues scene,
they can't get into antics-they
simply play their music, do very
little talking, and get on with
the show, to go home Monday
and work their jobs with, an
extra few hundred bucks in their
pockets, well-deserved.
The show, two old men with
guitars, laying down their own
sounds, their lives in. sound, a
few young people picking up on
the age, the lessons, picking up
fragments of dark lives, out
there in space, in vacant alleys.

A middle-aged woman in a
blue raincoat gazed intently at
:Albrecht Durer's engraving, "St.
Jerome and His Family," 1514.
Was she thinking about the vir-
tuosity of its execution, its spa-
tilal illusion, or its theme-the
apotheosis of the contemplative
life? Perhaps she just liked the
lion asleep on the floor of St.
Jerohie's sunlit study.
Others were similarly preoc-
cupied at the exhibition of the
master's woodcuts and engrav-
ings-all of them first rate im-
pressions-now at the University
Art Gallery.
One can see laid out before
one's eyes the influence of Italian

Durer, though inspired by the
large, curvilinear Leonardesque-
shape horse drawn by the Ital-
ian, surpassed him in pattern of
line (as in the curls of hair on
the hooves), and in the contrast
of light and shade as effecting a
dramatic, over-all design.
The master's phenomenal
achievement in the, technique
and design of woodcuts is aptly
demonstrated when one views an
Italian copy of Durer's woodcut,
"The adoration of the Shep-
herds." The copy, which is en-
graved (etched directly into a
metal plate instead of carved
indirectly out of the surface of
wood) has. little of the texture
and variety of line of the wood-
Since Durer's woodcuts of re-
ligious subjects could be bought
by the middle class-only the
nobility could afford engravings
-he geared them to the simpler,
more conservative tastes of such
an audience, as he did with "The
Small Passion at the Museum."
If Durer's woodcuts were
deeply pious and often striking
in their contrast of light and
darker areas, his engravings

and pertinence of line, his en-
gravings were experimental and
