Fun and frolic from CFG I DW
By Joe Hoppe
C FG'S LAST WALTZ. Mysterious
veiled women. The 3-D House of
Beef. New wave chicks. Wow, all in a
strange and wondrous happening
tonight at the Halfway Inn, in the
basement of East Quad.
CFG stands for Civilian Fun Group,
the most popular and widely acclaimed
of all of the East Quad basement bands.
Groupies are Lawrence Kent, trom-
bone, vocals; Jake London, guitar;
David Waldenstein, drums; Nick Grif-
fen, bass; and John Shaw, guitar.
This is their last show because Kent
and Griffen have decided to continue
their educations in Madrid, Spain, and
things just wouldn't be the same for the
band without that devil trombone and
funky bass. They are not breaking up
because of. internal strife, musical dif-
ferences, or disgust with the Ann Arbor
. music scene.
Combined with its last stand status,
and all the wildness usually put into a
CFG show, tonight should be much fun.
The Civilian Fun Group lives up to its
Kent describes CFG's music as
"classical/hardcore with an r&b in-
fluence." That fits as well as any other
label. The CFG's noise ranges from
funky, as in "Jake's Funk" with Lon-
don doing a big funked up guitar, to
Public Image-like droning to Ian
Dury-inspired crackpottiness. Then
there's the times when it's just loud and
fast. The main thing that defines CFG's
music is Kent's elephant-monster
tromboning-that's the big thing that
The Civilian Fun Group will be doing
all of their old standards tonight:
"Pleasure Dog," "Pool Blow" 4(about
blowing up the neighbor's swimdming
pool and getting in the Detroit News),
"Biker Wallets," a sociological thesis-
statement, "LS&A," an anthem for the
education-minded, "The Space Shuttle
is My Life", an anthem for engineers,
and "Eat My Funk." Plus, all week
each band member has been working
very hard on a 20 minute encore version
of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Freebird."
The mysterious women in veils that
were mentioned so long ago are girl
group Black Purda. "Purda" is the
Islamic practice of secluding females.
The veiled beauties will be singing
back-up vocals for CFG.
3-D House of Beef is a parody band,
and it'll be their debut performance to
get the Inn warmed up.
The new wave chicks will be com-
peting in a New Wave Chick contest.
Prizes haven't been announced yet.
Hopefully, they'll be Make Waves gift
This is your final chance to see CFG,
so don't you miss it, don't you miss it!
The show costs $1, and starts at 9 p.m.
Ric Ocasek - 'Beatitude'
I know it's getting late, but I had to
put in a good word for Cars mechanic
Ric Ocasek's long-awaited solo albumg,
Beatitude. It gives a distinctly different
side to the man behind the Boston four-
some, bringing out more of the human
element than the mechanical aspects
that have made the Cars into such

Ric and crew simmered down and

Beatitude finds Ric sans the Autos
('cept for ivoryman Greg Hawkes) and
working with a cast of mostly-
unknowns. The resulting batch of songs
are supposedly closer to the way Ric
envisions them-that is, before the
other Cars add their two-cents-worths.
Some, even, such as the "Shake It Up"-
like "Jimmy, Jimmy," are basement-
produced demos with Ocasek playing
all the instruments.
The variety is nice. "Prove" features
a finer sax solo than Hawkes has ever
blown, "Connect Up To Me" chugs
along on a swell sythesizer line, and the
concluding "Time Bomb" zings out
with a bitingly-overdone guitar solo by
Pop music's renaissance man?
Beatitude promises future fun.
