New Model Army -
No Rest For the Wicked
(Capital)
New Model Army. Ambitious name,
isn't it? For if we look into this name,
we see the will to reconstruct an en-
tity that is strong, disciplined and
powerful in origin and theory. But
these guys want to change the
definition of army.
Their army is a peaceful one. Their
army lends support to all oppressed
people. Their army is based on age-
old values and morals. You can read
it in the Bible.
I guess things tend to come around
in this manner. For New Model Army
really owe their musical and polic-
tical existence to The Sex Pistols and
The Clash. They employ a nasty,
thrashy early punk sound, but unlike
their forefathers, they aren't as
naive. Their attitude is almost the op-
posite. They've been ground through
the system but haven't lost their op-
timism. They have their causes to
fight for, but their music isn't just a

medium for preaching.
At times they are a bit self-
righteous, but man, when they blast
the rich and powerful in their songs
you know they mean it. They know
they can't change the world, but'
they're going to do what they can.
So you're probably saying, "I've
heard all this before," and maybe you
have. But hey, it's kind of nice to hear
somebody fresh and full of en-
thusiasm slap us in the face.
They're an angry band but they're
distressed about things not usually
discussed in the land of rock'n'roll:
They see disrespect for our elders and
God. They mourn the breakdown of
the family. They're a different kind of
rebel. They're asking us to remember
what and whom got us where we are
today. It's a very traditional
message.
And they have a very traditional
sound, using rock'n'roll basics. The
disc starts with "Frightened," a nice
fast rocker that questions those who
don't fight for their rights and things
that are wrong..
"Ambition" tells a tale of revenge
and how you have the right to get it.

"Grandmother's Footsteps" is a
standout with rollicking drums and
sustained guitars that denounces
modern progress with lines like
Television is flash and coke is nice
and you can have the rest/Dream
those dreams you've always had of
wealth and power and sex.
"Better Than Them" is one of the
most amazing songs I've heard all
year. It's all acoustic, bordering on
being a traditional Irish folk-chant
and condemns racism in England
with lines like And we build the
walls we can hide behind/And our
finest weapon is our poisoned
pride.
"Drag it Down," the most catchy
tune on the record, suggests there
aren't any heroes anymore, even
God: In whose eyes are we equal
now?/Now that we've killed God.
So what we have is a proud band
with a good attitude and a strong,
original sound. New Model Army has
a message but still provides a rockin'
good time. You can have The Clash,
I'll take these guys any day.
-Richard Williams

Tied up at the moment
Here we see Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd just hanging around in their new film 'Spies Like Us.,'Directed by
John Landis, ('Animal House,' 'Trading Places,' 'The Blues Brothers'), 'Spies' reunites the two veterans of
'Saturday Night Live' in an action-packed comedy about two inept U.S. intelligence agents fated to saving the
world from nuclear destruction. Coming soon to a theater or drive-in near you.
