R.E.M.

Green-er

BY MARK SWARTZ
IF U2 has taken on the respons-
iblity of being Our Beatles, Our
Dylan, and Our Hendrix, and INXS
has somehow won the the designa-
tion of this year's Stones, then
R.E.M. is left with the compara-
tively meager task of filling the
Who's shoes.
True, Peter Buck never had the
bad taste - or the chutzpah - to
demolish his guitar onstage (though
he is, in fact, tall, has a big nose,
and plays a Rickenbacker). And
Michael Stipe's marblemouthed
pronunciations and Daltrey's "We
Won't Get Fooled Again" holler are
as far apart as two vocalizations can
be. But R.E.M., like the Who for
most of their existence, has proven
to be a consistently inventive,
intelligent, and comfortably unrevo-
lutionary band that has built up a

They're not dead

yet

BY BRIAN JARVINEN
YES, their fans are known as Deadheads and they re-
ally do follow the band around the country when they
can afford to. Yes, there really are tye-died, smiling,
long-haired, time trippers in VW buses, who don't
worry about little details such as where to sleep and
how-will-we-get-home-if-we-spend-any-more-money.
Yes, a lot of people who don't think peace, love,
and understanding are very funny will arrive here in
Michigan's official '60s culture appreciation center.
Yes, they are the band that allows their fans to tape
each concert. Yes, the band really has been playing
since way back then. Laugh all you want - but a lot
of people will still have a really good time the next
few days.
While many elements of the "Grateful Dead
Experience" have become ingrained over all those
years, some notable changes have occured in the latter
half of the '80s.
Nothing has caused more gabbing than the Dead's
first Top 10 hit, 1987's "Touch of Grey." Suddenly,
the general population was reminded that the Dead
were still around, touring their butts off. Suddenly, the
Dead had a major influx of new fans. Not all of the old
fans dug this - hipsters can never tolerate people who
discover hip things after they do. In the curre.nt Cur-
rent, one Head even claims they haven't done any-
thing good since their first album. But the scene con-
tinued in 1988 as it has since the Age of Aquarius, al-

album in roughly seven years, the big question was
how long until the next one. The news from the '88
shows, then, was the debut of new songs, including
"Victim or the Crime" and "Foolish Heart." More de-
buts came last February during a run of shows in Los
Angeles. Rumors that Brent (Deadheads always refer to
the 'boys' by their first names) was leaving the band
were squashed with his new song, tentatively titled by
Heads "We Can Run, We Can't Hide." Jerry also
brought out a new one, "Standing On The Moon."
Both songs have a new (for the Dead at least) sub-
ject: politics, specifically as they relate to the envi-
ronment. Last fall, the Dead announced they were fi-
nally throwing their significant publicity weight be-
hind a cause at a press conference held with Greenpeace
and the Rainforest Action Network at the United Na-
tions.
Of the band's involvement, Garcia said "It seems
pathetic that it has to be us, but since no one else is
doing anything about it, we don't really have any
choice." He later told High Times magazine "This is
an earth problem - the whole earth. It's definitely life
threatening."
The band backed up their words with a sold-out
benefit concert at Madison Square Garden, but they re-
ally benefit the rainforest issue by talking about it.
After the Dead announced their involvement, major
rock magazines picked up the story; when you have a
chance to talk to a member of the Grateful Dead, well,
doing an environmental article doesn't seem so boring:
Bob Weir even showed up on Nickelodeon discussing.
