The Michigan Daily-Tuesday, September 10, 1991 - Page 7
by Kim Yaged
If the '80s, with the rejuvenation of
such rock oldies as Don Henley, Phil
Collins, Eric Clapton and Steve
Winwood, were reminiscent of the
1960s, then the '90s, with the
color of one's skin. This caused some
fans to hoot in agreement, others to
query, "What does Ice-T know
about rock?" and still more to pon-
der whether or not they brought
along enough dope to get them
through the rest of the afternoon
The event? The first (and proba-
bly only) Lollapalooza Festival.
Lollapalooza has been variably in-
terpreted as being: an Italian popsi-
cle; a word meaning fantastic in
some random foreign language; or,
according to Webster, "something
very striking or excellent." The
show was organized by production
manager Steve Payne, universally
recognized backstage as an A-class
Perhaps coincidentally, the per-
formance I attended at Lake Fairfax
Park in Fairfax, Virginia (which
was advertised as being in
Washington, D.C. - yeah, right)
took place on August 16th, exactly
22 years after the second day of
Woodstock. People parked miles
away from the park, as a six-mile-
long line of cars stretched down the
road. Lolla was a day-long fiesta
consisting of nine hours of music
and 12 and a half hours of fun...
Well, yes and no.
Frenzied fans started sprinting
into the Park at 8:30 in the morning
and spent the rest of the day waiting
in line for food tickets, paying three
dollars a bottle for warm Evian, and
pretending to be worldly as they
gorged falafel and other exotic
foods they didn't recognize. When
the water wasn't running out during
the 100 degree day, people were be-
ing sprayed by fire hoses. To the
management's merit, despite the
fact that loads of people were
tripped out, there were no alcoholic
Nails - noisy. Living Colour -
better on the album, a let-down live,
as usual. Siouxsie and the Banshees
- boring. And Jane's Addiction
the act that everyone was waiting
for, but was much too tired to mosh
it up once they hit the stage, de-
serves more than a short phrase of
depiction, but not much.
The highlight of the show hap-
pened when lead singer Perry
Farrell bitched out his girlfriend
At other performances, booths for Green-
peace and other informative, if not
iconoclastic, groups were set up instead of ~
the ones for food. And, oh yeah, there was
music, sort of...
beverages sold and, to to the man-
agement's advantage, no outside
food or drinks were allowed to be
brought into the park. (At other
performances, booths for Green-
peace and other informative, if not
iconoclastic, groups were set up
instead of the ones for food.) And,
oh yeah, there was music, sort of...
The Henry Rollins Band- if
you've never heard of them, you're
lucky. Butthole Surfers - creativ-
ity ended with the group's name.
Ice-T - righteous rap. Nine Inch
for being at Nordstrom's lifting ev-
erything she could get her hands on
instead of being at the show. This
was the preface for a lame rendition
of "Been Caught Stealing." "Stop!"
was kick butt. Other than that, there
is not much to be said.
The Lollapalooza Festival will
most likely end up being what
Woodstock probably was origi-
nally, a better experience than a
show. And 20 years down the lihe,
everyone will be saying that they
Ice-T, along with his thrash metal band, Body Count, was one of the
many performers at that big concert with the really stupid name.
reemergence of bell bottoms, side-
burns, recessions and the dreaded
"D" word - disco -seem to be
destined to recap the '70s.
Enter the Henry Rollins Band,
Butthole Surfers, Ice-T, Nine Inch
Nails, Living Colour, Siouxsie and
the Banshees, and Jane's Addiction,
in that order.
Sounds like the guest list for a
radical, anti-establishment, how-to-
be-politically-correct rally. Indeed,
Ice-T took a moment to preach about
rock music not centering on the
