If you like Paul Simon, and we
don't even need to say who he is, see
him at Pine Knob in Clarkston
tonight. It will probably be cold
outside and you'll freeze on the
lawn (maybe not the pavilion) but
you'll feel all warm inside over his
great, meaningful music. Tickets are
$27 for both pavilion and lawn at
TicketMaster (p.e.s.c.). Show starts
at 8 p.m.
She wrote "Up Where We
Belong," performed by Joe Cocker
pnd Jennifer Warnes, a Top 40 smash

from the movie soundtrack from An
Officer and a Gentleman. She's an
Indian rights activist and has per-
formed on Sesame Street. She sup-
plied vocal sound for the erotic 9
1/2 Weeks. Who but Buffy Sainte-
Marie, a "complex person and per-

music at the Ark tonight for two
shows, 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Tickets
are $15.25 at TicketMaster (p.e.s.c.)
If you can sing, dance, act, ham-
mer, paint and sew you're invited to

fall production of The Yeomen of
the Guard. Sunday at 7 p.m. in the

the making!

On Bits of TV
Me: Where do you find the
bits from TV at the
beginning of some of the
songs?
Mark: Find them off TV.
Me: Do you tape little bits
of TV with a tape recorder
or something?
Mark: I've been known to
do that.
On Steve Turner
Going Back to
College
Me: Why did Steve go back
to college?
Mark: 'Cause he prefers it.
Me: Is it the end of
Mudhoney?
Mark; I don't know.
Me: Why?
Mark: Because the future is
uncertain and the end is al-
ways near.

How Mark Keeps
his Vocal Chords in
Shape
Mark: I eat salt. Eat salt
and drink lots of beer. It's
really good for my high
blood pressure too.
Mudhoney's
Groupies
Me: Do you have groupies?
Mark: If we do, I feel sorry
for them
Me: Why?
Mark: Because we don't
know that they exist.
On Staying a
College Band .
Me: Do you want to stay at
a certain level of success?
Mark: It'd be stupid to not
want to reach more people,
but I'm not counting on it.
I'm not expecting it to

happen.
Me: Why not?
Mark: I just don't think
we re easily served up on a
platter.
On Life Outside of
Mudhoney
Me: What do you do when
you're not doing
Mudhoney?
Mark: Try to live a normal
life.
Me: Does it work? Are you
recognized on the street?
Mark: Yeah it's so horrible.
I can't go anywhere. I dress
up as a garbage can and
walk down the sidewalk.
Me: No little kids ask you
for autographs?
Mark: No, but dogs pee on
me.

the Stax/Volt studios, you know,
like Booker T. and the MG's proba-
bly recorded with it and stuff. So
we just figured that would be a lot
better vibe than, say, something
Heart had worked on.
Booker doesn't seem like he and
his friends would be an influence
for a band that has never used any
brass instruments on their records
and are apparently anti-commercial.
Me: What inspires you musi-
cally?
Mark: Punk rock. Sixties punk.
Jazz. I mean... like Mingus and
stuff. Some country stuff. Lots of
country blues. Little bit of rocka-
billy. No classical. Hardly any in-
dustrial.
Me: Madonna?
Mark: Um, no. No, she's a nega-
tive inspiration, I think.
Me: Negative?
Mark: I went and saw the movie
(Truth or Dare) and I didn't like it
at all.

Me: You didn't think it was to-
tally hilarious?
Mark: No, I thought she was pa-
thetic.
Mudhoney - Arm at least -
don't think that they have much to
do with metal, a genre more success-
ful than Madonna herself. When
you try to find them in the mall
record store, however, they're in the
metal/hard rock section near Jane's
Addiction. When I listen to
Mudhoney, I play them loud for
full effect. It's not like they're that
much like punk. But most metal is
on major labels and Mudhoney is
still on Sub Pop, a large independent
label. Their largest support is still
the college circuit in the USA.
Mark: I think the average head-
banger has never even heard of us.
Me: Would you like them to be
fans at all?
Mark: Do we have a choice?...
No, we don't go out of our way.
You know, if people like us, fine. If
people are stupid and like us, that's
kind of too bad.
Me: What do you think of main-

stream metal and metal lite? #
Mark: What do I think of it? I
don't dwell on it too much. It re-
ally doesn't have a whole lot to do
with me.
Me: Aren't you related to them
at all?
Mark: Jeez, I don't know. I never
thought so.
Me: Is it selling out to go on a
major label?
Mark: Not necessarily. It's sell-
ing out to bend over backwards to be
on a major label.
Me: Do you think Soundgarden
and Nirvana (former labelmates
who are now on A & M and DGC,
respectively) did that?
Mark: No, I think they're doing
okay. You know if you can live with
the music that you play and you
make it on to a major label, then*
you're doing fine.
Me: Could you see yourself stay-
ing on Sub Pop forever?
Mark: I don't know. Nothing's
forever, babe.
