guitarist "Rat" Pring and drummer
Daniel "Dan, Dan the Drummin'
Man" Worton) allegedly has an in-
tensity unmatched by other li ie
bands, but this spirit isn't repro-
duced on their record. "We're a lot
different live. We didn't try to put
out a gig record... when we did an
album," Griffin says. "We didn't
want to record a set list of songs
and just do that. We wanted to make
that an album and, like, stand up to
thousands of listens, whereas at a
gig, you go and it's a single event
that you remember."
But whether on God Fodder or
live, Ned's vigor comes from
within. Griffin becomes reflective:
"'Cause we're so close to the music
when we recorded it, we're like, 'Is
this right? Is this how we sound
live?' You know, we weren't trying
to make how we sound live, but ob-
viously, we knew people liked us
live and wanted people to like the
album. So does this (album) sound
like us? Because it's so close to us,
we can't really stand away from it
and tell, so when people say to us,
'Oh, it's really powerful,' that
means we've achieved what we've

wanted. So I can't really explain
other than that's just us.
"We want to get bigger and big-
ger. That's why we keep working, so
we can improve ourselves, and by
improving ourselves, maybe more
and more people will hear about us.
"We really didn't expect to go
down as well as we have been, be-
cause we didn't think that many
people have heard about us, but I
mean, playing with Jesus Jones, peo-
ple are saying, 'Oh, we've come just
to see you. We haven't come to see
Jesus Jones,' so that's nice to
know."~
You could say, then, that Ned's
is a successful band. Griffin humbly
quips, "Well, in our eyes we're a
success, because we're still going.
We're still writing songs that
we're proud of, but I don't know if
we've made it in the commercial
sense of the word. But in the com-
mercial sense of the word, we've
sold one hundred thousand albums,
and we've had a Top Twenty hit. But
that's not necessarily success to us.
But we've made it in our own eyes."

Pee Wee's Big
Adventure
dir. Tim Burton
Okay, so he jerked off while
looking like an unemployed night
watchperson. So? His first film,
Pee Wee's Big Adventure (a Tim
"I'm Batman" BurtonTM Pro-
duction), was a work of disturbing,
stunted-growth genius. Superfi-
cially, it's about how Pee Wee tries
to get his bike back, but it's really
about the freedom to be a weirdo in
a society that doesn't realize it's

even weirder (golly, Tim, isn't that
what all of your films are about? cf.
Edward Scissorhands).
It's impossible to list all of the
way-cool stuff in the film, but suf
fice it to say that if Luc Besson
thinks he's hip, Paul Reubens knows
that his monkey will never be
touched. In an unprecedented move,
the AAFC is also holding a Pee Wee
actalike contest and will be show-
ing Flip Chicks (a '70s porno flick)
in a double feature with B i g
Adventure as an incentive.
Pee Wee's Big Adventure will
be playing Saturday at 7 and 10 p.m.
in MLB 4, with Flip Chicks at 8:45.

Allan Holdsworth is horrorstruck when he realizes that his dachshund
has chewed the top off of his beloved SYNTH-AXE guitar.
.who what where wu..hen

Coming to town this weekend is
Allan Holdsworth, an English-
person considered by many to be
among the world's best guitarists,
not necessarily because of technique,
speed or tone, but mainly due to a
continually innovative style. From
off-scale yet in-tune soloing to the
sounds he's able to achieve on his
SYNTH-AXE (a guitar syn-
thesizer), Holdsworth's show
-should make for a compelling
,evening, putting new thoughts into
budding guitarist's heads, as well as
giving the lay people of the audience
a new insight into what can be done
with a six-string. His backing band
should feature some genuine talent
as well, since he is used to working
with guys like Bill Bruford, Jeff
Berlin and Tony Williams. Holds-
worth will be performing on
Saturday at 8 and 11 p.m. at Alvin's,
5756 Cass Ave., Detroit, $12.50 in
advance; and Sunday at 7:30 and 9:30
p.m. at the Ark, for $12.75 (but hey,
it's closer.)
The Program in Film/Video
studies begins its series of Race
Films tonight with God's
Stepchildren and Murder in Har-
lem, two films by Oscar Micheaux
from the '30s. The films, showing at
7 p.m. in Angell Hall Auditorium

A, give an African-American twist
to the average Hollywood movie.
The Cab Calloway short, Minnie
the Moocher, opens the show, and
the Chief Curator of the Detroit
Museum of African American
History will speak after the first
film. Admission is free.
The Sixth Annual Richard
Kubinski Art Competition spon-
sored by the Friends of Polish Art
will be held for artists of Polish de-
scent who were born in Michigan or
current residents. Receiving date is
September 28 at Galeria, Orchard
Lake Schools, St. Mary's Campus in
Orchard Lake. Prizes range from
$25-$250 for the October 6-27 ex-
hibit. Contact Johanna Bielecki at
581-4198 or Marian Owczarski 683-
0345 or 683-0425.
