Map of the World
Joe's Star Lounge
8 p.m., Thursday, April 5
By Larry Dean

A S FATE WOULD have it, I was
moseying through the hallowed-
halls of WCBN, campus FM radio hot-
bed, a short while back. As I mosied, I
was struck by the sound of a band
playing live in one of the tiny an-
nexes-not that it was unusual, but in
this particular instance, I liked what I
heard.
Driven by clairvoyant foresight and
an overwhelming urge to sneak a peek,
I peered in through the box-of-candy-
sized window and spied five figures
huddled together in the room. These
five people were distined to become the
piece de resistance of the Ann Arbor
music scene under the collective ban-
ner Map od the World, but at the time, I
merely found them swell, and walked
on, smiling.
Kidding aside (but not for long), Map
of the World is one of the best local ban-
ds currently gigging with some
frequency in Ann Arbor, Detroit, or the
whole of Michigan for that matter.
They play original pop music that is
both lyrically and musically intelligent,
enjoyable, and danceable, which is
hard to come by in these days of Linn
drum machines and bluesy mouth
olympics.
The nucleus of Map of the World has
always been brother-and-sister-team
Khalid and Sophia Hanifi. Hailing from
the sprawling municipality of Saline,
Michigan, the Hanifi's got it into their
heads about two years ago to take their
cowritten songs to the populace-at-
large in the form of a band, arguably
the best means for such a goal's ac-
complishment. They played a few times
in the privacy of parties, to friends and
acquaintences who supported their ef-
forts with myriad thumbs-ups, and the
symbolic flaring of their Cricket
lighters.
Trouble befell Khalid and Sophia,
however, when their drummer left to
pursue said percussion in another band.
But no sooner had the yoke of difficulty

a
been donned that it was shrugged off,
when friends Laurie Wechter and Ted
Sylvester saw the outfit play at a party.
Expressing their enthusiasm for the
Hanifis' work, Laurie and Ted were in-
vited aboard the bandwagon, and with
Mike Stander already in tow, Map of
the World was complete.
It is essentially a simple tale, but a
lot of hard work has gone into the band
in the last year and a half. They
rehearse a lot, and that dedication
shows in the tightness of the group on
stage. Even back when I first saw them
in a concert situation - at the dreaded
half-Way Inn in East Quad - they were
energetic and polished, sounding like
other bands who have years of ex-
perience behind them.
This means they are serious about
what they're doing. God forbid, it's
almost like CBGB's, back when Blon-
die, the Ramones, bandTelevision, to
name but a top few, burst out of the
bowery and into the hearts and ears of
the general public: Local kids made
good.
But Ann Arbor is not New York
(Although it tries its damnedest to be
sometimes), and we don't have a
plethora of exciting, mind-expanding
groups usurping the stages and playing
to screaming, supportive hoardes of
rabid fans. In fact, though recent
shows where Map of the World has been
headlining have had good-to-great tur-
nouts, the truth is that many patrons of
the bar scene still scratch their heads in
wonder when all those neat, bold black
and white posters start multiplying like
gila monsters on telephone poles-the
posters announcing another Map of the
World gig.
If, like Britt Eklund or Andy Warhol,
we measure ourselves by the company
we keep, Map of the World would have
no shame in naming the headliners
they've opened for: The 3 O'Clock,
Plan 9, the Violent Femmes, the
Raybeats, the Del Fuegos, the Rain
Parade, and the list goes on. Add to
that stellar appearances at this past
summer's Art Fair, and a wigged-out
spot at CBN's famed Bash, and you'll
see more than just the bar owners
taking notice.
Which is good, since music wasn't
meant for just bars. Opening up their
vistas, the bandmembers went a step
further and recorded a demo tape with
the able aid of the East Quad Music Co-
Op, a fine fledgling outfit also respon-
sible for Map's first gig. in the Half-
Way. The tape was a fine forward step,
enabling them to garner some airplay

To be a leader, you must dress like a leader.
Whether or not you think that our beloved ad-
ministrators lead, they certainly have a style all their
own. Believe it or not, they are the business trendset-
ters of today.
Generation gap Page 1s
We may not think any better today, but we are
surely dressing better. Today's fashions are full of a
pretentious-significance not found in the college at-
mosphere a decade ago. Then, clothes were just
something to wear.
Something borrowed Page 18
Some of today's most popular fashions come direc-
tly from yesteryear. You may have mocked them
several years ago, but they have become something
no fashion place can do without. Discover how vintage
clothing finds its place on the Ann Arbor fashion
scene.

Women's fashion has long since jumped the
skirt/pants gender line. As their position in society
and self-image have improved, women have begun to
dress more and more in traditionally male garb. It
now seems that the .gender line has been completely
crossed.
MUSIC
Three good men Pages 27 & 27
Steve Goodman captivates his audience with
energetic folk this week while George Winston,
Michigan-born pianist/composer combines jazz,
classical, folk, blues and even pop to provide an
eclectic and charming repertoire. Also, Yo-Yo Ma
will bring his now-famous skill and versatility to Hill
Auditorium. It will be an event that no classical
music lover can afford to miss.

PRING. A time to discard the anxious frown
of winter and wear a smile. A time of blooming
flowers' and, sometimes, of blooming love.
Spring brings with it a levity and joy that not
even finals can mar.
JASHION. Somehow clothes seem to develop
a new importance in the warmth of the sun.
Looking good reflects the way we feel inside.
This spring and summer light fabrics, natural
fibers, simple patterns and earth-tone colors are
pushing away the heavy winter wear. Comfort is
taking precedence over constricting styles, thus,
the clothes tend to be loose-fitting and soft.
White is, of course, the main attraction, but,
surprisingly, blacks and greys are holding their
own. As long as the fabric is light, any color is
acceptable.
The following pages contain fashions from
local stores ranging from shorts and tee-shirts to
suits and formal dresses. Using Ann Arbor
locales we have tried to assemble a random sam-
pling of some of the styles that are sure to be
popular in the coming months.

on the radio and also providing the
means to let other interested bookers
from out of town hear what was going
down.
Bringing us, for the most part, to the
present, to the state of the World, or the
Map thereof. The stalwart band-in-
question are in the midst of readying a
single for commercial (loathe to use the
word) release, recorded with the over-
sight of Alan Goldsmith and Tom
Whitakker, two of the nicest guys
around with active involvement in,
amongst other things, the Ann Arbor
Music Project, which spawned the
Cruisin' Ann Arbor LP. This new
polyvinyl product will feature two of
Map's most popular tunes, "Monkey's
Paw," and "Disconnection," and
should be out, according to casual
Khalid, "in a couple of months." Ex-
pect the usual fine graphics and a keen
sound eked out of Ben Grosse's
megastudio facilities.

Finally, in continuing with their
desire to spread the word to the waiting
music fans abroad, Map of the World is
tentatively planning to embark on a
regional tour of Chicago, Cleveland,
Madison, and maybe even the Big Apple
in September. I know they're serious
about it, because they bought a van and
everything.
Consider yourselves lucky-perhaps
tottering on the brink of musical
phenomena: A local band with high
aspirations sees reachable rungs on the
ladder of success. Do see them before
they begin nailing their hotel room fur-
niture to the ceiling, or you'll be sorry.
Upcoming chances include April 5, with
the Long Riders (at Joe's), April 15 at
the Take Back the Night Benefit, and
April 24 at Rick's American Cafe,
headlining.
Remember-this is pop, but sans
iguanas. . .good stuff with or without

they are gems nonetheless. Such artists as Echo and

recent album Soul Mining. The The are great great.
