W OMEN HOLD an often
precarious position in rock
music; as elsewhere, they are asked to
fill certain roles deemed acceptable to
society. Popular success depends to a
large extent on sexual allure or image.
From th efluttering eyelids of Olivia
Newton-John to the reverse-role macho
posing of Joan Jett, female musicians
are marketed as a special commodity,
perhaps limited in expression, but in
perfect agreement with the varied fan-
tasies of the buying public.
Exceptions to such moaning
generalization are, of course,
numerous, and one of them, Bonnie
Hayes, brings her band and a different
approach to Joe's Star Lounge this
Tuesday night following local rockers
Ragnar Kvaran.
Hailing from California, home of the
few new things going on in American
pop, Hayes must walk a thin line bet-
ween popularity and integrity, between
the complacency of Stevie Nicks and
the self parody of the Go-go's. The
rather feminist label placed on Bonnie
Hayes and the Wild Combo might have
destroyed the popular potential of
many groups-the revolt againstI
traditional rock stereotypes hasn't
brought mass national appeal yet-if
Hayes hadn't successfully infused such
listenable and refreshing optimism to
her socially conscious pop(this in con-
trast to another California import,
American punk).
Good Clean Fun, Hayes' February '82
debut album on Slash, begs comparison
to the recent pop of the Go-go's and
Blondie, and emerges quite favorably,

Shelley's Boyfriend" has an upbeat
sound and catchy phrases Girls will be

that belie its more earnest entreaty to
Hayes' younger sister not to sacrifice
mind and matter to her domineering,
airheaded companion. Other tracks like
"Coverage," "Dum Fun," and "Girls
Like Me," the opening tribute to a
modern female attitude, make the LP
enduringly and infectiously true to its
cleverly chosen title.
In a telephone interview from the
East Coast, where she began her
current tour last week, Hayes
described some of her motives in the
writing of "Girls Like Me:" "The most
obvious thing it was about was feeling .
.. embarrased about aggressiveness,
not even sexually, but in careers and
the way you behave ... A lot is just
about controlling your own life."
Hayes has taken great strides toward
cont.rolling her own life, and her music,
although it wasn't easy getting initial
attention from generally unresponsive
record companies. "I was, I still am,
incredibly disappointed, in the music
industry,"she said. "Especially at that J

Seva's, located at 314 East Liberty, is
a good place to start your own sam-

vegetarian menu that makes you won-

health food, or bare minimal survival,
but on enjoying home-style cooking that
leaves the customer thinking, "I really
did get my money's worth."

become such a fashion thing-if you do
anything that doesn't really comply to a
pretty strict set of rules if you haven't
had any previous success, it's very dif-
ficult to put anything out."
The group is planning another album
to be recorded early next year, in
which, Hayes claims, "the rock 'n roll
is going to come out a lot stronger; i'm
a little disappointed in pop. I mean, I'm
really good at it, but i'm also the
songwriter, so . . . I don't think we're
going to turn into a synthesizer band (a
la Psychadelic Furs) at all. I hope not."
The aversion to synthetic music
aside, Hayes nonetheless displays am-
ple talent for the keyboards, having
played as a professional musician for
years before joining a San Francisco
group called the punts in 1929 which
later evolved into the Wild Combo.
Classically trained as a pianist, Hayes
cites such influences as Ray Charles,
Otis Redding, Junior Walker, and other
black artists as part of her musical
roots, adding a personal fondness for
Such a diverse background lends well
toward experimentation, and Tuesday
night's audience should be prepared for
just about anything. The group lays
emphasis on R 'n R and dance music,
with a soft spot for improvisation.
The combination of Hayes' dance-
oriented pop with Ragnar Kavaran's
more driving earnestness promises an
evening of variety if nothing else. Joe's
first excursion into creative out-of-town
acts bodes well for a town that could use
a little shakin' up. -
