RECORDS
Continued from page 10
The clear ballads on this album,
"Tonight," and "Have You Ever
Needed Someone So Bad" are love
songs, but Def Lep has an unequaled
ability to turn potentially sappy
4yrics like "We'll be moving to the
rhythm of your heartbeat" and make
them serious statements.
Equally intense are the feelings
stirred by "Have You Ever Needed
Someone So Bad," which describes
the agony of wanting someone you
just can't have - a feeling that most
people know.
On Adrenalize, Def Leppard has
tapped into human emotion more
confidently than ever before - and
,they have reason for this confidence.
Joe Elliot sings with the force of ten
-men. Phil Collen makes that one
,guitar sound like an orchestra. Rick
-Savage dominates his bass like no
'other can. And you'd never know
,that drummer Rick Allen has only
one arm. Adrenalize is Def Lep-
,pard's most fluid album to date, and
yes, it was definitely worth the wait.

The biggest, baddest, grungiest
"chunk o' noise this side of '72 Sab-
"bath, and they're not even from
Seattle. Monster Magnet's Spine Of
God is a heavy mental groove-fest
that's 100 percent "Acid Rock," as
in rolling joints on the cover of Zoso
awhile doing whippets. Fuzzed-out
,;guitars steamroll over equally fuzzy
bass, with slow and low dirge tem-
,pos setting the pace.
With one foot in the land of prog
rock and the other in a suburban
basement full of stoners listening to
Black Oak Arkansas (who the Mon-
--sters cover here, taking "Sin's a
Good Man's Brother" to dizzying
heights), Spine Of God comes across

monies where people gather together
to form a circle around an invited
medicine man who holds sacred ob-
jects and calls in spirits. Participants
sing songs for each direction -
north, south, east, and west - as
represented by different animals.
Prayer requests are made by each
individual, and Mother Earth, Stone
spirits, and others are called forth to
join in the ceremony.
All of Tinkham's involvement
with the Native American organiza-
tions and art guilds influence her
creative process. She says every-
thing changes for her - her
thoughts do not stay static as she
practices her art.

"Chaconne" on its 50th anniversary
by presenting his solo work, tenta-
tively titled "Lodestone," which has
emerged with many of the spatial
and kinetic concepts of "Chaconne,"
but with Sparling's contemporary
interpretation and style.
Janson offers her group work,
"The Machine Within the Machine
Within the Machine Within," previ-
ously performed recently in Spring
Dances. Janson, who prefers to keep
her themes and ideas in the move-
ment rather than in print, did admit
that the ideas of "peer pressure, so-
cial conformity, and corporate zom-
bie-dom" do surface.
She will also be performing a
solo to the music of Loudon Wain-
right III. A comic look at what
Janson calls, "life after school," and
"adulthood," the piece also touches
on the darkness of a solo journey.

fluences of both West African and
Korean dance forms and music.
Having worked with many of the
National Dance Companies in Africa
in a cross-cultural exchange of
dance forms, as well as having spent
a summer in Korea, Buntz says, "My
own natural tendencies towards
those rhythms and forms has been
enhanced and formalized in my
choreography." She will be accom-
panied by either Korean or West
African percussion music.
From one of the innovators of
modern dance technique and style,
Jose Limon, to the cross-fertilization
of vastly different dance cultures
that we see in today's industrialized
and easy-access world, For Adults

the death-torque thing that induce
slow-motion head-banging.
The god-like drug anthem, "Nod

Scene," is a mid-'70s daydream of
epic proportions. Vocalist David
Wyndorf growls like a psychotic
ghoul about the joys of "scratch 'n'
sniff Playboys," and used vinyl
copies of Yes' Fragile over a most
heavy grunge groove.
Spine Of God is one of those al-
bums that makes one wish that punk
rock, the '80s, and R.E.M. never
happened. Oh, nevernind. It's a sa-
tanic drug, thing, you wouldn't un-
