Big Audio
Dynamite
No. 10, Upping Street
C.B.S.
Big Audio Dynamite's latest,
No. 10, Upping Street isn't as
good as it should be. Its biggest
problem may be its reliance on all
the elements that made their debut
album,This Is Big Audio Dynamite
such a treat. The debut was loaded
with sound effects and voice tracks
from various sources like old
movies, t.v. shows, phone conver -
saations and the like. The first time
around these effects are novel. The
second time around they wear thin,
which becomes a problem-these
tired effects litter No. 10, Upping
Street.
Side one is the better side. It
assaults you like a Bad Ass Dance
record. "C'mon Every Beat Box" is
an energized, funked-up number that
steals heavily from "Summertime
Blues" and "Dancin' in the Streets,"
and features deuling vocals between
B.A.D. frontmen Mick Jones and
Don Letts. "Limbo the Law" is a
percussion drenched throw-down
number that ought to send boppers
of all types runnin' for the dance
floor. "Sambadrome" is an

interesting number that is
predominantly piano and every sort
of percussion you could imagine.
Unfortunately "Sambadrome" is
possibly the only song on this
record that has a sound that can't be
found somewhere on the first
record.
Side two is pretty lame. "V.
Thirteen," "Hollywood Boulevard,"
and "Dial A Hitman" are limp pop
tunes that are about as exciting as
playing with a wet dish rag. The
only bright spots on side two are
"Sightsee M.C.," a foreboding rap
tune, and the reggaeish "Tickets:"
But even these don't match up with
their counterparts, "BAD" and "A
Party," on the first album.
The punk that wouldn't die, Joe
Strummer, has hooked back up
with ex-Clash cohort Mick Jones to
produce this album and co-write
five of the its nine songs. We can't
blame Joe for ruinin' this record
like he has everything else he's laid
his hands on lately. Other than
being partially responsible for the
abysmal "V. Thirteen," he did co-
write some of the records better cuts
like "Sightsee M.C.," "Tickets,"
"Limbo the Law," and "Beyond the
Pale," a somber pop tune that sort
of grows on you, even if it is too
long. In any case Strummer has
done nothing to rid Jones of all the
black rhythms that he claimed
polluted the Clash's later material,
and Joe's punk rock attitude
certainly hasn't paid dividends in a
punk sort of way on this record.
But anyway, No. 10, Upping
Street is a disappointing follow up
for B.A.D. There's a handful of
good songs on the record, but they
don't equal their counterparts on
their debut This Is Big Audio'
Dynamite. If you're at all interested
in B.A.D buy the first one. If you
have the first record - play it
again.

Lone Justice earned a good deal
deal of public and critical aclaim
following the release of their self-
titled debut album. Their blend of
country and western with straight -
forward rock-and-roll was a breath
of fresh air on the music scene. In'
particular, vocalist Maria McKee
was lavished with praise for her all-~
too-rare contribution of both high
energy and talent to this L.A.-based
band. With the release of their
follow-up album, Shelter, the
group has undergone many changes,
but the music still remains as
powerful as ever.
The band went through quite a
few personnel changes between
their debut album and Shelter.
Namely, everyone in the original
band left and was replaced with the
exception of Ryan Hedgecock (who
finally did leave after the recording
of Shelter) and Maria McKee. In
addition, Benmont Tench, one of
Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, who <
had a major role in both the writing
and playing on Lone Justice's
debut, has a greatly diminished role
on Shelter. Little Steven Van
Zandt also had a hand in the making,,
of the first album, and on Shelter
his creative input has been increased ,:
to include production. Taking all:
of these changes into' account, it~
would seem unrealistic to expect'
Lone Justice to maintain all of the
style, energy and talent of their first
album. Fortunately, there is one
major component that bridges the
gap between the two albums: Maria
McKee. McKee has proven that no-
matter who else is playing,,she is
the powerhouse and mastermind
behind the sound of Lone Justice.
She is a bit more restrained on
Shelter, due mainly to the fact that
there are more slow ballads here
than on the first album. However,
her amazing vocal talent has
apparently improved and shows
through much better here, while her
energy has not diminished in the
slightest.
Shelter opens with "I Found
Love," a hard-driving rock number,
and finishes with "Dixie Storms," a
beautiful country-flavored ballad. In
between these two extremes, there
lies enough powerful material to
make this album as strong as the',
first. Lone Justice, and McKee in
particular, seems to a knack for
perfectly blending the subtle aspects
of country music with the hard and <
fast sound of rock and roll. Though*
it wouldn't be fair to compare the
two albums too closely, since they
were made by what are for the most'
part two completely different bands,"'
let it suffice to say that Lone.
Justice's debut and Shelter stand on.
equal ground as prime examples of
McKee's talent and Lone Justice's
contribution to music. .

Tau Beta Pi, the national engineering honor society, was founded to mark in
a fitting manner those who have conferred honor upon their Alma Mater by
Distinguished scholarship and exemplary character as students in engineering,
or by their attainments as alumni in the field of engineering, and to foster a
spirit of liberal culture in engineering colleges.
The Michigan Gamma Chapter of Tau Beta Pi is celebrating its Eightieth
Anniversary this year. During these past years, Michigan Gamma has grown to
be one of the largest Tau Beta Pi chapters in the nation.
We the officers and faculty advisors of the Michigan Gamma Chapter of
Tau Beta Pi, wish to congratulate the following people who have achieved our
