Genesis LP


>f{EELINGS of desertion a n d
desolation, and the sub-
sequent quest for identity and
love, have long been popular
songwriter topics. With Wind and
Wuthering (ATCO SD 36-144),
Genesis has now devoted an en-
tire album to these emotions.
Often using journeys as mta-
phoric expressions of loneliness,
'isolation, abandonment, home-
lessness, and alienation, the
songs form a melancholic whole.
In some ways, the record is
quite an advance over previous
work by Genesis. Most of t h e
tracks are quite lengthy, a n d
they all combine a wide variety
of remarkable melodies, shifting
tempos, and novel rhythms with-
in their structures. Each mem-
ber of the band plays a broad
assortment of instruments; tneir
thickly textured playing has
been mixed to the level of per-
cnssionist Phil Collins' vocals,
making the music and lyrics
amazingly cohesive.
Thanks to the imaginativeness
of the lyrics and the creativ-
ity of the music, the songs have
a strange, dream-like quality to
them. Ironically, this allows the
listener to become enveloped by
them, making their stories seem
real. As in previous albums,
each group member has contri-
buted to the songwriting.

found from song to song, and more distant perspectives. Each

TONIGHT in Auditorium A, Angell Hall
(Paul Morrissey, 1968) 7:00 ONLY
The excessgs of sex degenerate into mannered ceremonies of
flash in the decayed and seedy atmosphere of Andy Warhol and
Paul Morrissey's New York. Joe Dalesandro personifies the soul
that grows more distant and laconic as hustling and love become
increasingly indiscernible. He emerges as a living statue of
Adonis, striking and desired, yet cold, aloof, and bored. Joe Dal-
lesandro, Geraldine Smith, Candy Darling.
(Andy Warhol' 1972), 9:00 ONLY
Andy Warhol and Paul Morrissey examine women's liberation
through their unique perspective of systematic reversal. Unlike
the slushy romantic Hollywood features of the '30's and '40's, the
heroines here are trying to get away from men, not pursue them.
As usual, the dalogue is hilariously acidic in its delivery by the
cast, featuring Holly Woodlawn as a high fasihon model from
Bayonne, N.J., Candy Darling as a society deb from Long Island,
and Jackie Curtis as a self-described schoolteacher. "A madcap
soap opera . . . hilarious!"-Vincent Canby.
