Iggy bathes in

beer, garbage,

and fun

By Danny Plotnick
Iggy Pop might be a thirty-nine
year old rock star touring for the
first time in four years in support
of his most accessible record ever,
but boy can he still entertain. He
flipped the bird, thrusted his pelvis,
spit, ripped off his shirt, mockingly
jacked off, and snarled at Saturday
night's St. Andrew's audience to
his hearts content. The audience
loved it-they threw beer at him
(by the kegful). He loved it-he

bathed in it-he demanded more.
"The more beer you throw, the
more I like it. Because, after all,
I'm cool, and I sing cool songs, and
I am cool" (or something like that).
Let's face it-the man is a good
judge of character-he is cool. If
nothing else, all the beer and
garbage thrown at him should attest
to that.
Ann Arbor's favorite psychotic
(and former Discount Records

employee) is soaking in his new-
found success. His rapport with the
audience proved that he's having
some fun. Saturday's only short -
coming was the song selection,
which could have been better. He
played at least eight of Blah Blah
Blah's nine songs. They came off
better live than on vinyl, but they
still managed to drag things down a
bit. After doing a hell of a version
of the classic "Five Foot One," he'd
drag the proceedings down with a

weaker, slower song of Blah Blah
Blah, only to rip into a monster
rendition of "T.V. Eye," only to
drag it all back down again with
some more new material. He jazzed
up the newer stuff by snarling,
egging the audience to throw things
at him, and jumping and kicking
his way around stage.
But the best stuff was still the
old classics like "I Got A Right,"
which kicked the set off, "Some
Weird Sin," "Gimmee Danger," and

the hellacious rendition of the
Stooges' "Down on the Street,"
during which his clothes went
flying. For a quick second it
looked like he was about to whip
out his infamous pecker-what a
tease.
The encores were the show's
highlight, 'cause the energy never
lulled. "Lust For Life" had Iggy's
band getting into the act as the
guitarist played while being hoisted
above the sold out crowd by the

crowd. The band was tight; they
weren't a bunch of studio showoffs,,
living out their rock and roll.
fantasies in the wake of Iggy's trail
of garbage. "Rawpower" was as'
ruling as ever, and the new single
"Cry For Love" fit in nicely with
those Iggy classics.
Sure he didn't whip it out or
spread peanut butter and glass all
over himself, but hell-he's Iggy
Pop-he's cool-he's got a right to
do whatever he wants.

Records

Al Jarreau
L is For Lover
Warner Bros.
Al Jarreau has long been a
prominent jazz vocalist; George
Benson, Michael Franks, and The
Manhattan Transfer are just a few of
his musical peers. Yet, Benson and
The Manhattan Transfer have

successfully gained a wider audience
that includes Top 40 listeners in
addition to their faithful jazz
audience. Michael Franks seems
satisfied with his ,popularity among
jazz listeners, but Jarreau has
continually tried to cross over.
His most succcessful attempt
comes with L is for Lover. Here,
he trades his long-time producer Jay
Graydon for Nile Rodgers(David
Bowie, Duran Duran) on this- his
tenth- album. The result is a
record that is energetic and joyful,
and places Jarreau among some new
peers: Lionel Richie and Billy
Ocean.
The first cut, "Tell me What I
Gotta Do," is the warmup and it's
familiar territory for fans of Jarreau.

Co-written by Graydon, this song
is more in the style of Jarreau's
theme for the television show
Moonlighting , as was most of his
music. This song segues into the
Steve Winwood influenced "L is for
Lover," the title tune. The beat is
borrowed from Winwood, and Nile
Rodger's guitar playing dances
notes around that beat which makes
for a very danceable single.
Largely, the other songs on the
album are a successful marriage of
pop music and pop jazz: getting the
heavy drum beat characteristic of
any dance song in harmony with
the nightclub sound of cool jazz.
"Says" does that and so does
"Pleasure" and "We've Got
Telepathy," the latter two being

reminscent of a Pointer Sisters' hit
single. Once again this is done
wonderfully with the last cut, "Real
Tight" that has basslines and brass
arrangements from the Kool and the
Gang school of music.
Sure, you say, Jarreau can't lose
with borrowing music from already
established pop artists. I say it's
more Rodgers adapting these pop
music styles to a versatile vocalist
like Al Jarreau that makes L is for
Lover a good album. It also shows
how Jarreau can do oh-so-mudh
better in the pop music field than
some of his newfound peers. But
then of course, there's Luther
Vandross.

Satta

'S

sounds beat apartheid

By Tim Huett
What do you get when you fuse
the pulsating rythm of I-TAL with
the driving beat of First Light?
Answer: Satta. Satta is an
emerging reggae band founded by

veteran members of I-TAL and First
Light.
They are coming to Rick's
American Cafe tonight to play an
anti-apartheid benefit. Proceeds of
the event, sponsored by the Free
South Africa Coordinating

(Scenes from the Life of St. Matthew: Calling of St. Matthew - Caravaggio)
LSA faculty with disciplinary interests in Italy may sign up for the Michigan-
Wisconsin Academic Year Program in Florence, which will begin in fall 1987.
Deadline for submission of curriculum vitae and a brief description of two pro-
posed courses is Nov. 15.j

GREEK ALCOHOL
AWARENESS WEEK
November 9-15, 1986

Committee, go to aid the anti-
apartheid movement and refugees
from South Africa's repressive
regime. But the most immediate
benefit will be to those who attend
tonight's concert.
Concert-goers will enjoy an
evening of resounding, uplifting,
solid dance music. The group's
sound has been descibed as both
rock/jazz inspired reggae and
"jazzae," jazz-reggae fusion. Band
leader Cellis describes"their sound
as simply, uniquely Satta.
The word "satta" is invested with
spiritual meaning by many peoples.
In Ethiopian, the word means "the
enlightened one." For those at
Rick's tonight, Satta will mean
good feelings and inspired dancing.
