the Michigan Daily
Fier leads Golden Palominos to
By V.J. Beauchamp
Anton Fier and his ever-shifting
concepts are the one constant that
runs through all the Golden
Palominos' projects. With three
albums and two national tours to
date, the Palominos have included
the likes of Richard Thompson,
Carla Bley, Michael Stipe, Chris
Stamey, Jack Bruce, and John
Now, as a recombinant quartet of
Fier (drums), Syd Straw (vocals),
Peter Blegvad (guitar & vocals), and
Jody Harris (lead guitar), they mark
themselves as a avantgarde pop-rock
Supergroup, and will play in town
tonight at Rick's American Cafe.
This is an early show; it will begin
at 9 p.m. sharp. So be there on
time, or be sorry.
Fier is a mere mortal. He has to
eat. When the Daily tried to reach
him in New York City at the Top
Cat recording studio, we were
politely turned away. He was at
Daily: How was McDonalds?
Fier: Um, awful. I was just
kinda hungry. I hadn't eaten yet
today and it is the only thing in the

F: Fish Sandwich. With cheese.

They don't. say Fier is difficult
This year's touring model
includes Bernie Worrell (keyboards)
from Talking Heads and Pretenders
fame, Matthew Sweet (guitar and
vocals), a "real charming little
fellow" from Nebraska, and Robert
Kidney (guitar and vocals), who
fronts the Cleveland based Numbers
Band, and performs his own song
on the latest Palomino release,
Blast of Silencel axed my baby for
a nickel (on Celluloid Records).
"I just always wanted to play
music," said Fier, "It looked very
satisfying, and it looked, well, like
you didn't hurt anybody. " The idea
of the Palominos came because he
"had just wanted to have [his] own
This didn't go without hitches.
The original Golden Palominos
lineup sounded a lot like noise.
"Once I did the record (the Golden
Palominos) , I decided it was all
wrong. So it took me a couple of
years to recover from that."
The Palominos of recent history
(on the new album and on last
year'sVisions of Excess ) sound
quite a bit different. Poppy, with
only a slightly subliminated rumble
Last spring, the Palominos'
touring line-up included Stamey,
Bruce, Worrell, and Lisa Herman,
as well as the fab four, and they
blew the crowd right out of the
Nectarine Ballroom and onto the
street. Straw wailed like a banshee.
She sings with the intensity of
Mahalia Jackson shouting about
Jesus. There were guitars, too.
Three of them. Whew.
Citrin is the catch of the day
The Palominos will be
appearing around town in a number
of different ways today. At about
3pm, Straw, and perhaps Harris
will submit themselves to an
interview on WCBN-FM, (88.3).
At 5 pm, many of the Palominos
will be doing what they call an "in-
store' at Schoolkids Records. And
of course, all of the Golden
Palominos will grace the small, but
not insignificant, stage of Rick's
American Cafe at 9 p.m. sharp
tonight. You cant get your tickets
around (Schoolkids' or the Union),
or at the door. $12.50 in advance.

Simplicity is the essence of
Maggie Citrin's latest exhibit at the
University's Museum of Art.
Her paintings reflect an ability
to translate wildlife and nature into
art. As Citrin explains, "There is
no separation between my life, art,
and nature. Everything is one."
Citrin gathers her images to-
gether like portraits in a photo
album. From a hike in the morn-
ing, she may store the image of a
solitary bird and later take the time
to finely tune and develop that
image on the canvas.
There is a story behind each of
Citrin's works. For instance, she

began painting underwater scenery
when she began swimming to re-
cuperate from a back injury. She
then experimented with her water-
proof camera and found herself
inspired by the tranquility of the
rhythmic movements of the fish
she observed. Her magnified "Fish
Underwater" evolved from these
observations as well as from the
artist's study of Spanish dance. "If
you take the time to see what's
around you, everything will come
together," explains Citrin. "Natural
things you pass by daily will sud-
denly gain new importance."
Citrin's exhibit draws its
strength from contrasting images,
both within and between the paint-
ings. Long-legged flamingos with
delicate, soft-colored necks glow in
front of blue-green waters. Trees ex-

In other works, Citrin paints
bridges and lily-pads similar to
those of Monet. Citrin layers colors
into purple shadows and blue-green
waters. Citrin explains that she
doesn't follow a methodical pattern
when creating light and shadow, but
rather follows her instincts to re-
capture the play of light on the can -
With the coming of spring,
Maggie Citrin's exhibit is a good
reminder to us all that we should
slow down our pace once in a while
and take time to appreciate the
beauty of the natural environment.
