Various Artists
Genuine Houserockin' Music 11
Alligator
Alligator has assembled an
impressive selection of 12 single
cuts from some of their finest blues
artists. Some featured artists, like
KoKo Taylor, Albert Collins, and
James Cotton are longtime label
workhorses while others, such as
Little Charlie and the Nightcats and
Donald Kinsey and the Kinsey
Report, are new hotshots. Veteran
blues and blues-rock demi-legends
who recently signed to the label
like Johnny Winter, Lonnie Mack,
Gatemouth Brown, and Roy
Buchanan are also highlighted.
Because the album features
something of everything in the
blues field, it showcases a wide
array of performers. There's the
gutbucket Chicago blues of
Taylor's "I'd Rather Go Blind," the
raucous slide guitar party stomp of
Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials's
"Pride and Joy," and Winter's
"Mojo Boogie," Lonnie Brooks'
hard edged R & B "Boomerang,"
Brown's scorching ja z z
instrumental "Pressure Cooker,"
and on and on and on.
There's also a healthy dose of
humor, particularly Collins' "I
Ain't Drunk" ("I ain't drunk, I'm
only drinking.") and Little Charlie's
"TV Crazy": "Now every time I
want to get me some, she says
'baby can't you wait until a
commercial comes on?'... I'm TV
crazy, it's about to drive me

insane."
There's not a bad cut on the
album, though blues purists would
squirm over many of the tracks.
Lonnie Mack's "Tough on Me,
Tough on You" is more a bluesy
rock than a blues song. It wouldn't
sound out of place on a Greg
Allman album. Similarly, Buchan-
an and Delbert McClinton's "The
Chokin' Kind" would be more at
home in a roadhouse honky tonk
than a Southside Chicago blues

psychedelic alter-ego of XTC, or at
least they should be. On the Dukes'
debut, Andy Partridge and company
neatly cloaked themselves as a
bunch of Beatles fans who had had
too much to dream last night, and
the Dukes were removed enough
from.XTC that the name change
and groovy cover art were
warranted.
XTC released Skylarking last
year, a soaring, summery album
with Sgt. Pepper-esque production,
and because XTC has traveled back
in time for inspiration, the
distinction between the Dukes and
XTC has become blurred. While
snatches of Psonic Psunspot quote
heavily from great relics like The
Beatles' "I'm Only Sleeping" The
Byrds' "So You Want To Be A
Rock 'n' Roll Star" and the Beach
Boys' "Good Vibrations," there are
also passages which echo various
songs from Skylarking. As a
consequence, one never forgets, as
one was able to on the Dukes' EP,
that XTC is responsible.
Even so, the album has fun
moments, like "Have You Seen
Jackie" about a child who "couldn't
decide whether he was a girl or she
was a boy." "Collideascope" is a
twist of Lennon. As with the debut,
the album has a Trivial Pursuit
appeal - it's fun to sit around and
identify all of the borrowed licks -
but Psonic Psunspot suggests that
the Dukes and XTC are folding into
one another, and I'm greedy enough
to want both.
-John Logie

Too-pricey vintage clothes butt
against toaster-ovens and scribble-
scratched Partridge Family records.
And the specter of the King watches
over the whole shebang, taking
shape in barely recognizable
Mexican clay busts, black velvet
paintings, and album-cover clocks.
Colonial Lanes is almost too
nice for this list. The place is
reasonably clean, but one "touch"
removes Colonial from bland
niceness. After you return your
bowling shoes, the cashier grabs a
spray bottle and squirts an
unidentified liquid into the shoes. No
other bowling alley has been so
willing to imply that my feet stink,
and so ready to admit that they don't
care whether the insides of their
shoes eventually approximate the
consistency of moistened saltines.
Failure to support such
businesses results in mistakes like

The Bagel Factory, which is already
less fun because it's nicer, and
Village Corner's impending
niceness.
It amazes me that the lesson
hasn't been learned. New Coke is
much nicer than Classic Coke. New
Coke's friendly sugar bomb is easily
more comfortable than the acid burn
of an ice-cold Classic. New Coke
won blind taste-tests. But we won't
buy New Coke. It's too nice.
INTERVIEW
Continued from Page 8
Dominick: Well I don't know
where he had that done. He kept the
name for a while. then he suddenly
came up with this design concept for
Domino's, and got some kind of
award... He went through a couple
of hard times, but he pulled it out
and he has done wonders from then
on. You've got to give him credit.
The only thing I'm sad about is his
brother-his brother had started the

place, and now he treats strangers
better.
D: When did you open the
upstairs?
Dominick: Well, I had a
resaurant up there, and then we had
some problems with it and closed
down and I didn't know what to do
and then everyone said, "why don't
you just open it up to everyone?" So
I figured okay, I'll put the bar up
there and let it go. And I've been
able to keep the prices down. I
thought it was ridiculous the prices
they were getting in A n n
Arbor-$2.50, $3.50 for a drink. I
thought that was crazy. Of course,
their overhead is higher than mine
because I've been here so long and
everything's paid for. I own the
building and all that.
But what's happened to costs is,
kids came here and, I don't know
why they do this, but they stole all
my beautiful glass pitchers and those
are, like five dollars each and I had
300 of those stolen. That's an added
expense. I've heard kids here for
forty years say how businessmen are

W* w --m

ripping them off. Well, that's not
the case. We've had to nail
everything to the wall or they take
it. It's terrible.
D: Is that a recent phenomenan?
Dominick: Well, more so
recently. I guess it's been the last
three or four years. There's a change
in the student body. I think they
need something to work for. You
know, like the Vietnam War. An
activity of some sort to put all that
en energy into. Now, they just have
wild parties, which is alright with
me but they don't stop there They
get destructive. I'd like to just say,
"Okay this is your place. Take care
of it." Most of them are good. I'd
say 99%-95% anyhow. I'd like to
see the other individuals watching
over them. It's their responsibility
too.
D: Do you think the bar has
overtaken the restaurant part of your
business?
Dominick: No, it's in balance
now. About 50/50 and actually the
resatasurant's receipts are bigger. We
never wanted to become a bar, where
