CAP'N DAVE
Continued from Page 7
Murray professes that "just as
Dadaism was a movement in re-
sponse to the culture, against the

culture, and a reaction to western
culture at that time... in that sense
we are related to Dada because were
are sort of at odds with our own cul-
ture of the '80s."
But Murray's true dedication to
his band doesn't really have much to
do with anti-art. As he admits, "I
just like to wear my bell-bottoms on
stage."

MORROW NIGHT AT CLUB

GINS AROUND 10 P..M. THE

TESLA
Continued from Page 5
"Maybe after it's over, there will
be more awareness of Tesla and it
may inspire some mechanical engi-
neer to follow in his footsteps,"
added Eli.
Fashionably late, Tesla arrived
and its members had a lot to say
about the project and Wagner.
Drummer Troy Lucketta said
Wagner informed the band of his
project and the life of the man after
whom it was named.
"I knew nothing about Tesla,"
Lucketta said of the days before
Wagner approached him. "The more
I read about him, the more he was
in my life."
"I guess I'm Teslafied," he
added, laughing.
Also present yesterday was
Margaret Cheney, Nikola Tesla's
most recent biographer.
With the backing of Wagner's
Tesla Memorial Society, the band
is certain the bust will reach the
Smithsonian.

Guitarist Frank Hannon said
with the petition, the band hopes to
"maybe put the bust in the
Smithsonian." Lucketta corrected
him: "We are going to put this
bust of Nikola Tesla inside the
Smithsonian Institute."
If need be, Hannon suggested,
Tesla would "go to war with the
Smithsonian."
But Lucketta quickly clarified,
"We are not at war with the
Smithsonian. We are pro-
Smithsonian, and we are pro-
Tesla... It's a great institute and we
don't want to shoot it down in any
way, shape or form."
All of Wagner's previous at-
tempts to have Nikola Tesla recog-
nized by this "great institute" have
been rejected. But now, with the
help of Tesla and all their fans, the
bust may finally be placed where it
belongs.
Tesla will be playing tonight at
the Palace of Auburn Hills with
Great White.

Foreigners' views, with and
without subtitles
Spanish film director Pedro Almodovar made it relatively
big in the States with last year's Oscar-nominated Women
on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, a funny paean to then
joys of artifice and the injustices of lousy love affairs. A really
good movie, but which on second viewing appears to be
playing things a bit tame. As anyone who saw the Ann
Arbor Film Co-op's presentation of Almodovar's Law of
Desire last year can tell you, this guy was far raunchier a
couple of years earlier. So imagine what he came up with
back in 1984. Well, it sounds promising: sleazy nuns in Dark
Habits on a double feature with the neurotica fest What
Have I Done To Deserve This? At any rate, watching people
dealing with stupid problems is a lot more fun than dealing
with your own. And it's another chance to see the ultra-cool
Carmen Maura. WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS?
WILL BE SHOWN SATURDAY AT 7 P.M. AND SUNDAY AT 9
P.M. DARK HABITS PLAYS AT 9 P.M. SATURDAY AND 7
P.M. SUNDAY. ALL SCREENINGS AT ANGELL AUDITORIUM

Zabriskie Point is one of those films that you'll either
adore or hate. When it came out in 1970, some critics took
to calling it Zabriskie Pointless. Well, I think they missed the
point. As always, Italian Director Michelangelo Antonioni
was just being misunderstood. Zabriskie Point is his for-
eigner's view of late-'60s America and the crisis in values it
faced (and that we are still dealing with today). He cast a
couple of L.A. student radicals as a couple of L.A. student
radicals, and while their performances are a bit... quirky at
times, the help give the film as a whole its unique feel. It
starts out promising to be a Medium Cool-like pseudo-doc-
umentary, only to switch gears once its protagonists escape
into the desert. The film's central sequence, a lengh love-
making sequence set in the sands of Death Valley, is fasci-
natingly beautiful.
ZABRISKIE POINT IS BEING SHOWN BY HILL STREET
CINEMA, 1429 HILL STREET, ON SATURDAY AT 9 P.M.

triguing bit of filmmaking because
of his contribution. It's certainly not
the highlight of his near-legendary
career, yet it's a nice return to the

mainstream. He's given us Michael:
Corleone, Scarface, and all those
other terrific characters. If anything,
that alone is worth a look this time.
SEA OF LOVE is now showing at
