Beatles' animated Submarine resurfaces in A2

9

By Fred Adler
"We all live in a Yellow
Submarine, A Yellow Submarine, A
Yellow Submarine; We all live in a
YS,A YS,A YS."
-Lennon & McCartney
The Beatles sang this over twenty
years ago, but the words are familiar
to us all. Anxious for the world to
travel with them, John, Paul,

George, and Ringo recorded their
psychedelic trip in a feature length
animated film, Yellow Submarine.
The acclaimed "four star" cartoon
surfaces in Ann Arbor this Sunday.
The groundbreaking group,
whose music spanned much of their
careers, blended together a humor and
style all their own and developed an
hallucinogenic recipe to satisfy any
appetite. Yellow Submarine is a fun-

filled tale of the "Fab Four's" mis-
sion to save the world from the Blue
Meanies - a serious problem in-
deed. The solution the Boys from
Liverpool come up with, although
obvious, is too often missed by us
all.
The Beatles used their own voices
over their animated selves in surely
the first and possibly the finest full
length music video. Filled with

Beatles' songs such as "Nowhere
Man," "When I'm Sixty Four," and
"All You Need is Love," the group's
journey has become a timeless clas-
sic.
The Student Film Appreciation
Organization is dedicated to bringing
classic films back to the big screen
and raising money and food for Ann
Arbor's homeless. Sunday night
they offer a rare treat to our Michi-
gan campus with a screening of Yel-

low Submarine to promote fun and
awareness. So share "A Day in the
Life" with The Beatles defeating the
Blue Meanies and help the homeless
with your participation.
Yellow Submarine will be at An-
gell Hall Auditorium A for only one
night, Sunday April 2. Showtimes
are at 5:00, 7:00 & 9:00. Tickets
for everyone are only $2.50 with a
can of food donation and $3.50
without.

A new Lou Reed: H

are no musical thrills. Most of the
time the music sounds like Trans-
former without any of the cabaret
stylings. That is to say, rock and
roll without any tubas.
At other times the music of the
Velvet Underground seeps through in
the basic arrangements characteristic
of the third Velvets album. The per-
cussive genius of Maureen "Moe"
Tucker, the drummer for the Velvet
Underground, expresses itself on two
tracks. Also Rob Wasserman emu-
lates the buzzing viola of John Cale
on "Dime Store Mystery," a song
inspired by the funeral of Velvet
Underground patron Andy Warhol, as
well as by Martin Scorsese's defense
of The Last Temptation of Christ.
The lyrical inspiration, however,
constantly dominates the album:
much of the emphasis here is on the
words, with Reed's vocals way up

front and a read-along lyric sheet in-
cluded. In fact, Reed says in his liner
notes that this album is "meant to
be listened to in one 58 minute sit-
ting as though it were a book or a
movie."
Live, Lou Reed always delivers a
variety of songs spanning his entire
catalogue. With this tour, material
stretches from the Velvet days to the
ever-so-current present day of New
York. Live shows have been docu-
mented on vinyl since the Velvet
Underground, when Live at Max's
Kansas City became the first bootleg
ever released by a major recording
label. Since then another live Vel-
vets album has been released, as well
as several live albums from his solo
career of the 1970s and 1980s.
With the Velvet Underground,
Lou Reed made rock and roll history.
With New York, Reed delivers his
observations and scathing criticisms
of contemporary history. No more
romanticization of sex and drugs:
"I've stopped, you shouldn't start,"
as he once said. Many times, Reed
has appeared to be the next Rock ca-
sualty.
However, Lou Reed is now
healthy. To survive in New York,
one has to be.
Lou Reed and the Feelies will
perform at the Fox Saturday night.

The tales of utter decadence writ-
ten by Reed inspired his legendary.
champion, Lester Bangs, to coin ev-
erybody's favorite summation of
Lou's career: "Lou Reed is my own
hero principally because he stands
for all the most fucked up things
that I could ever possibly conceive
of. Which probably only shows the
limits of my imagination."
A summation that perhaps held
true, but now things have changed.
Lou is still sick - but he's sick of
you. You, Mssrs. Waldheim, Jack-
son, Downey, North, and, of course,
Mr. Mayor.
This is New York, sung by Lou
Reed, 1989. A New York with a
busload of problems, symbolized by
the Statue of Bigotry that overshad-
ows the victims. Reed brings his
aural impressions of New York and
the macrocosm that it represents to
Detroit on Saturday.
Reed has been singing about the
decadent side of life in New York
City for 25 years, beginning in the

Velvet Underground, one of the most
influential rock groups ever. The
Velvet Underground broke all of the
taboos; they were the first explicit
synthesis of bizarre sex, massive
amounts of drugs (with all of the
obligatory religious imagery associ-
ated therein), and experimental, on-
the-edge rock and roll, plus some
doo-wop showingsReed's love for
music. Reed orchestrated the white
noise that became a celebration of
the wild side: the junkies, the hook-
ers, the idle rich, the deviant fringes
of New York.
That subject matter persists to
this day, except now Reed is upset
and is ready to take (musical) action
to notify the general masses about
these social wrongs. In an interview
with Rolling Stone, Reed explained
that a major impetus for the creation
of the new album was "a mean spir-
ited government that is essentially
attacking people that can't defend
themselves. That's the weakest peo-
ple - the kids, the sick, the elderly.
And I think we should fight back."
Reed began fighting back in
1985, when he participated in the
