Records
Tonight, Madison, Wisconsin
natives Swamp Thing will be
slithering into the U-Club with
their original, "warped and ready
to party" good times. The Thing
has recently returned from some
several East Coast dates, and has
been touring extensively, opening
for such acts as The Minutemen.
The music starts at 10 p.m., and
cover is $3.
Swamp Thing - Learning
to Disintegrate
(Flaming Pie
Records)
Swamp Thing are a Madison,
Wisconsin cult phenomenon. Swamp
Thing is the wierd, wacky creation of
four guys who went to the University
of Wisconsin. Swamp Thing are
moving up in the world of music.
Swamp Thing has come for your tur-
ntable ...
Learning to Disintegrate, the
debut album by you-know-who, is a
fairly vivid vinyl portrayal of the
bizarre creativity and sheer fun these
guys must let loose in live performan-
ce. It's difficult to pinpoint the Swamp
Thing style, so suffice it to say they're
able to fuse all different types of
music together with an inspired
humorous approach. You know -
that usual subject matter of ghosts,
long distance, communism, and can-
nibalism.
The boys from Madison begin their
LP with "The Mileage Song" (don't
let them fool you, "Marhum Halu" is
over after the record's first rotation)
- a rockin' good number about how
big our world really is. From there
it's straight into the eclectic turmoil
of "Witch Dr." The song begins with a
take-off of that familiar jangly
Southern guitar sound, before being
led by a (far too meek but it works,
anyway) acoustic guitar into a new
texture, which then briefly departs as
the band goes quasi-hardcore. All of
this is often accompanied by "we're
havin' a party" background vocals,
which alsu surface during several
other tracks. Fusing three different
styles in one song is a difficult chore;
doing it well is adventurous and ap-
preciated.
"Winter Fire" is a brilliant parody
of The 70s-styled Rocker : you know,
guitar-edged AOR a la "Freebird."

A GYPSY playing the guitar in
Ann Arbor Saturday night?
Anything is possible, here. And you
can see it tomorrow night when 82-
year-old Spanish guitarist Carlos
Montoya will perform an evening of
Flamenco guitar, beginning at 8 p.m.
at Hill Auditorium.
Montoya is not the crooked gypsy of
lore, either. A performing guitarist
since he was a teenager, Montoya has
innate musical brilliance. Although
he cannot read music on a printed
page, Montoya concocts original
arrangements of old gypsy themes,as
well as creating original compositions
using typical gypsy rhythms.
Montoya adds something different
to a piece every time he plays it,
always strumming the strings in a
new and unique fashion.
After Montoya's first full-length
guitar recital as a youth, he received
such acclaim that he proceeded to
share his art with the whole world on
a global tour.
Montoya achieved one of his life-
long dreams in 1966 when his com-
position Suite Flamenca for Guitar

and Orchestra made its world
premiere with the St. Louis Sym-
phony Orchestra. The work, based on
four traditional Flemenco themes, is
one of his most highly praised accom-
plishments.

Tickets for Saturday's performan-
ce, Montoya's fifth appearance in Ann
Arbor, can be obtained at the Univer-
sity Musical Society's office in Burton
Tower. Prices range from $6-$12.

"My name is Stillday
LaRoche. A little over a year
ago, a compulsion seized me to
begin summarizing in writing
the answers I'd found during
30 years of truthseeking
among the religious and
metaphysical literature.
"While putting some
complex ideas into simple,
straightforward language,
I found that my writings
contained answers I had not
yet found within the literature.
I asked: Where were they
coming from?
"The answer, also given by
way of the writings, was that
these writings had been
enscribed since the Dawn of
Eternity in a pool of all-
knowing matter called 'The
Eternal Fount of Wisdom'.
And the writings further
stated that I was in no way
responsible for their content,
that I was a mere messenger.
"Figuring that this might be
true, I began asking the
Eternal Fount some pretty
basic questions. These ques-
tions were usually in the form
of a title for a writing.
I concocted titles such as:.
u Is there a God, and if so,
who is he?
a What is the truth about
wealth
t Are booze and drugs bad
for man?
a Is there any truth to the
concept of original sin?
a What is the truth
about UFO's?
Well, believe it or not, the
answers to these and other
such title/questions were given
to me no sooner than I would
scribble the title at the top of a
blank sheet of paper. To say I
was delighted and awestruck
by this turn of events is an
understatement. I was being
given answers to conundrums
and dilemmas which had
plagued me for years, and to
which I feared I might never
find solutions.
"My suspicions about the
high quality of these answers
were confirmed when I showed
these writings to a casual
acquaintance. He immediately
quit his high-paying job as
Vice President with oneofkour
country's ten largest banks,
and founded a company to
publish these writings. I was
somewhat embarrassed
because he seemed possessed
of a religious fervor - he said
the entire world must have an
opportunity to read such high
truthn -d ,,,; enmnr. t A

Truths to my fellow man?
And the answer which came
forth was that, although I was
born of normal earthly
parentage, I was not of the
Earth's race!
"Further, the writings
indicated that I was not work-
ing alone on this particular
mission. There were many
other people, numbering
approximately 144,000, who
were also here from other
galaxies and other dimensions
to transmit the very same
truths and wisdom I had
written about. These other
people would elaborate upon,
re-phrase, and discover yet
new material all of it direly
needed by men for the
challenges that await them in
the immediate future.
"The writings stated that
these 144,000 lightbearers
would be among the first to
read my book. The writings
said that many of them would
'come awake' to their true
natures and to their true com-
missions once they read
certain articles and sentences
in the book.
"These 144,000 people would
be representative of all age
groups, all races and creeds,
and all sexes. They were, so to
speak, implanted within all the
social and economic strata of
society from birth, in order to
best know how to communi-
cate the needed data to
their peers.
"I do not know if all of this
is true; I only know that the
Higher Wisdom has not erred
as yet. What it says about me
personally was reasonable,
since I have always been
regarded as different or
strange by all who have ever
known me. Even now, I am
not a normal member of
society. I live a reclusive life in
a mountain shack near Reno,
Nevada. But I do have friends
and contacts in the normal
layers of society, and for over
30 years I held a fulltime job
and lived the straight life.
"My only advice to you is
this: even if you are not one of
the 144,000 assigned Servants
of Light, you should try to
read my book, THE
HIGHEST TRUTHS; THE
HIGHEST WISDOM. Sooner

or later, you are going to hear
its songs being sung by a host
of remarkable people.
You should try to get in on
the ground floor of this inter-
steller phenomenon. As you
will find out, it could very well
save your life and preserve
your sanity.
"And if by chance you
happen to be one of the
144,000, then I must point out
that it is essential to your very
existence that you read
this book."
Ladies and gentlemen, my
name is Ray Dunham, the
casual acquaintance Stiliday
LaRoche mentioned in his
letter, above. I'm the earthling
who's supposedly "possessed
of a religious fervor" to get
this data into your hands.
Well, that statement is fairly
close to the truth. I urgently
want all of you who read these
words to read Mr. LaRoche's
book, but I'm also confident
that those who need to have
this treasure - those who are
somehow destined to have it
- will eventually be led to it.
This astounding, landmark
publication costs only $9
postpaid. It is a softcover
book of 168 pages, containing
56 articles. Some of the titles
besides the ones mentioned in
Mr. LaRoche's letter are:
o The illusion called "fear"
a Is abortion an act of
murder?
t What is the truth about
showmanship?
a Prisoners of intellect
t How to forgive yourself
t3 Why the Jews must forgive
Adolf Hitler
a How to conquer anxiety
a Why we must help heal
Mother Earth
t Controlling your thoughts
I admit that I do worry that
someone who is not amenable
to these messages might get
hold of this book. If this
should happen, the Hamar
Publishing Company will
allow all purchasers of THE
HIGHEST TRUTHS; THE
HIGHEST WISDOM up to
one year to return the book for
a full refund.
By the way, this book
cannot be sold in bookstores or
in any other kind of store.
