M any times musicians would love
to cut a demo tape, but cannot break
into the music business because of
the high cost. A place on campus
exists where people can go and
actually record in an eight-track
recording studio - part of the
Halfway Inn in East Quad, sponsored
by the East.Quad Music Co-op.
The East Quad Music Co-op is
an extremely small and loose organi-
zation that provides this opportunity
for University students and members
of the Ann Arbor community. This
group was established in the early
1980s as a reaction to the monopoly
that local radio stations have over
the music business.
A number of students expressed a.
desire to record or perform so they
made a deal with East Quad. Phil
Myers, a Residential College junior,
is one of the three individuals
currently responsible for the group.
He concisely explained the situation:
...the residence hall provides the
space for the studio, and the Co-op
runs shows and provides equipment."
Over the past three years Myers
has been witness to the outstanding
growth and expansion of this small
organization. He explains, "It has
been really exciting to see how as
time passes more and more people
find out about our facilities and more
and more people keep coming to
record or perform."
The Co-op has two main objec-
tives. The first is to provide to the
students and people of the commu-
nity the services of an eight-track
recording studio and a PA system.
They are able to do shows for every-
thing from playing at clubs to Uni-
versity functions. The studio is pro-
vided for the students at much lower
rates than in a professional studio.
The Co-op also teaches people how
to use all of the equipment in a
recording studio. In addition there
will be an open mike night every
Tuesday in The Halfway Inn in East
Quad. This format allows people to
perform but is limited to acoustic
acts of only two people or less.
Groups can come to record their
own music to make demo tapes. The
price of renting the studio is much
lower than it would be in a normal
studio. Also, there is usually a show
once a weekend for those who like to
perform. The Co-op would also like
to have a show about once a
semester in which bands come and
perform for benefits. This helps
fledgling bands because it gives
them more publicity and the use of
equipment at lower prices. There are
also advantages for those who don't
even wish to record or perform.
As Myers puts it, "One of the
best things about the organization is
that it enables you to meet " a
tremendous range of people who
have done really neat things, and
who are interested in the same things
you are." He claims that one of his
favorite things about it over the
years has been that he has been able
to meet many interesting musicians.
This is one place to go to when one
wants to escape from the pressures
of being a student.
If you are interested in the East
Quad Music Co-op, call 764-5962.
Sam Peckinpah's controversial
Straw Dogs may be one of the
most influential films of the 197Qs.
Dustin Hoffman plays a passive
American mathematician who moves
to England with his wife, performed
by Susan George. When Hoffman
hires various villagers to do repairs
on his house, they jeer at him and
get fresh with his wife.
Despite George's encouragement,
Hoffman remains meek, much to her
disappointment. When George's
character is raped by local villagers,
she doesn't tell her husband. But,
goaded by his loyalty to a mentally
retarded man who he comes to
protect, Hoffman becomes sadistic.
Apparently, he realizes that violence
offers a deeper, more primal pleasure
than even sex.
Along with John Boorman's De-
liverance, Straw Dogs seems to
justify revenge and excessive mas-
culinity in film - a trend which
still exists, albeit in the distorted
cinematic form of ex-Vets, ex-cops,
NRA proponents and reclusive
steroid-cases whose lives are rudely
interrupted by Satanic cults and or
the Mafia. (These roles are especially
good for those hulking stars for
whom English is a second language
- i.e. Stallone.) But Peckinpah de-
serves more credit. His concern is
not with simple derivations of good
and evil but the potential and incli-
nation for violence in every man.
Still, his view of women is archaic:
when George's character is raped, the
insinuation is that she deserved it.
Straw Dogs is an important, prob-
Straw Dogs is showing on Friday in
