News flash: band wants to get laid

drones. Their hair is long. But they

Thin, in trouble? You gotta be kidding. Not
even the bear like hug of Big Ben could keep
our slippery villain from escaping the jaws of
justice. "Uh, I'm a gunna get you," Big Ben
blurted, "and then I'm a gunna fold you like a

band as the same college-heavy
metal-thrash of the Sub Pop set. The
most notable comparison involves
the name of Chris Cornell and crew,
better known as Soundgarden.
"It's kind of annoying because I
think Soundgarden's pretty lame re-
ally," says vocalist Charlie Naka-
jima of the comparison. "I sort of
cringe at it. Soundgarden's really
weak. I think a lot of bands on the
Sub Pop label are completely bor-
ing, you know."
"We really blow them away in a
big way," he continues.
A pretty bold statement. With
songs like "Menacing Realm,"
"Sacrifice" and "Mad Dog," however,
one might think the Hoofers could
pass it off. But a listen to their debut
album shows that this band's bark
may be worse than its balls. Not
that GobbleHoof isn't heavy, but the
references to Soundgarden have un-
derlying implications - this stuff

has been done before. That didn't
stop Jason Bonham, of course, but
he got away with it because his dad
was famous.
Let us not forget, though, Gob-
bleHoof has a notable name on their
roster too. Well, they did, anyway.
And this has caused some confusion.
"Sometimes it's weird," says Naka-
jima, "Because we'll play different
places and not too many people
know who we are and a lot of people
expect to see J in the band." At one
time there was a J in the band, last
name of Mascis, who cut his teeth
with Deep Wound and moved on to
front Amherst, Mass.'s pride and
joy, Dinosaur jr.
But J has moved on and, says
Nakajima, and GobbleHoof has got-
ten harder since the transition.
"We've been described as being pro-
gressive Satanic," he explains.
"Your average heavy metal listener
might walk away a little confused

because we don't play the standard
riffs or anything."
Nakajima says there is a reason
for the two guitars, pulsing skins
and a frontman who sounds like
he's in deep pain: "We used to play
hardcore when we were a little
younger and as the anger died away
we discovered the evil at the core of
our souls."
Perhaps it is that evil that has led
GobbleHoof into the cliched deca-
dence of their predecessors in the oh-
so-tumultous world of hard rock.
"We just like to go out, get laid and
do some drugs," Nakajima says. "We
love being turned on wherever we
But, Nakajima assures those
rushing out to call 1-900-GobHoof,
"We're a good time band, really."
Well, Pamela DesBarres prodigies
should hope so.

We're looking for a few good college students and graduates who
can fill the shoes of a Marine Corps officer. That's a pretty tall order.
It means leading other Marines. Being responsible for their
well being. But that's something no civilian job offers you at 26.
If you think you're a real company man, see your
Marine Corps Officer Selection Officer for details.
