Time and Tide
Polish-born Basia Trzetrzelewska,
pronounced Basha Tshetshelevska,
(for many, her last name is a
mouthful; hence she goes by Basia)
is emerging as a singer known for
her style and personality.
Her funk, jazz and Latin styles
work to make her debut album,
Time and Tide, a potpourri of great
grooves. Her latest single, "New
Day For You," has a slightly Latin
feel, as do many of the cuts on her
album, and has been steadily climb-
ing up the charts for the past seven
weeks. Her breezy samba tune,
"Astrud," is a tribute to her idol,
Astrud Gilberto, and does its best to
feature the peaks, valleys and incred-
ible range of her vocal instrument.
Aretha Franklin is another one of her
idols, and her sassy, "How Dare You
Talk To Me Like That" commands
some R-E-S-P-E-C-T. The tune
"Time and Tide" flows smoother
than a canoe in the Huron river and
has the power to lull even the most
die hard insomniac to sleep without
* being boring.
"Freeze Thaw" is way up tempo
with a lot of hard-driving percussion
- boom boom boom - to main-
tain its momentum. The carefree
swing, "Miles Away" will have you
burning your books and hopping the
first plane to Utopia. Busy seniors
should be able to get into this tune
- definitely study break material.
While you're on that study break
you may want to check out some
TV - not just any TV, but Basia's
stirring, Manhattan Transfer-sound-
ing commentary, "Prime Time TV,"
in which she sings about - what
else - prime time TV. "As we look
inside/ the private lives/would Cecil
B. DeMille be turning in his
grave?/In just one week,/you'll be
hooked so deep/ a daily dose of soap
on the screen." Now that wasn't so
hard to figure out, was it?
Her album is made special not
only by, as Billboard says, her
"enormous vocal prowess," but by
the talented cast of musicians like
White, Steve Gregory and Kevin
Basia manages to maintain a high
volume on any tune on the album
she wants to. But, although she has
the wonderful gift of vocal elasticity,
she, at times, seems to stretch it
too much. I found myself having to
get up and adjust the equalizer be-
cause it didn't seem natural that she
could be singing so loud throughout
the duration of some of her songs.
But I guess I shouldn't complain.
It's better than listening to vocalists
with low range and weak voices,
who sound rather monotone
throughout a song... i.e., Sade.
"Time and Tide" is without a
doubt an album whose time has
come, and Basia is a remarkable
singer who's going places - fast.

literate, pisstaking, funny, godless,
I Am Kurious Oranj is the
soundtrack to hip contemp dance
group Michael Clark & Company's
ballet I Am Curious Orange. Said
ballet commemorates the anniversary
of England's King William (of Or-
ange) and Queen Mary. Clark in leo-
tard and doc martens leads pirouetting
cohorts (in sartorially inelegant '70s
apparel) over stage while The Fall

trash boys tore loose in the Sun stu-
Mark E. Smith shines light on
the rancid truth, smartly makes the
connections between ye olde days and
contemporaneity. As sure as Mar-
garet Thatcher is hellbound, Smith
cuts through white liberal crap and
Tory bullshit; William Blake's
"Jerusalem" is updated; "Kurious
Oranj" is a psycho Protestant history
of Western Civilization, told in
Smith's characteristic verbal jabbing;
the band tackles King William's
legacy with a rocksteady beat and
masterful first person narrative from
Smith's poison pen. He's the hip
priest Zarathustra with an acid
tongue. On the front cover he stands
in front of the Houses of Parliament.

on those semiotic morsels!
"New Big Prinz" is an example of
how The Fall take the simplest r'n'r
riff and beat (circa 1955) and make it
work again. American rhythms press
against a northern British sensibility.
Back on their first album, Live At
The Witch Trials (1978), Smith
rapped: "I believe in the r'n'r
dream/R'n'r as in primal scream."
The Fall have always been true to
this utopian vision in their way 'apd^
