These five guys must have just gotten out of bed. Their
hair was styled by pillows, and their personalities were
almost as laid back as their hair. But it must be hard work,
being the only actors in "Swishing Channels," a night of
Gay channel surfing.
For one night only these five will alight upon Ann
Arbor, sharing a blend of comedy, satire, and issues that
face the Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual community. It is an
evening spent up-close with the EGGPLANT Faerie
Players, five fine gentlemen named Spree, Donovyn,
Charly, Timothy, and yes indeed, MaxZine. MaxZine
gets the position of honor at the end of the list because he
is formally from Ann Arbor and the founding editor of
Between the Lines, which is Michigan's Gay, Lesbian
and Bisexual monthly newspaper.
More recently MaxZine has been spending time cre-
ating "Swishing Channels" with the rest of the players at
IDA, a Gay arts community in the middle of Tennessee.
The five joke about the cows and the Baptists in Tennes-
see, but they are serious about the jobs. For more then 6
weeks they spent 12 hours a day of intense writing and
rehearsing before their opening, in a barn. Since then,
EGGPLANT has moved on, through large auditoriums
and venues like the International Lesbian and Gay Asso-
ciation conference in Copenhagen to a courtroom in
Wenatchee and an antique store/gay club in rural Oregon.
"Swishing" is based on the fictitious Pink Triangle

Band takes to music like P

By AARON HUPPERT
Only recently has Phish, a truly
versatile and multi-talented rock band,
received some well-deserved public-
ity. Slowly but surely the band climbed
their way out of Burlington, Vermont
area and accumulated a vast follow-
ing of dedicated 'phans.'
Guitarist Trey Anastasio, bassist
Mike Gordon and drummer Jon
Fishman (affectionately known as
'Fisherman') all met at Goddard Col-
lege in Plainfield, VT, in 1983. A year
later when keyboardist Page
McConnell joined the band, the group
was complete. As guitarist Anastastio
recalled, "I guess right from the start
we wanted to branch out into some-
thing a little bit different. Shortly af-
ter our first gig - a ROTC dance in
which we had to learn about 40-50
covers in three days - I started writ-
ing original songs and from there we
began to play more of the kind of stuff
we're doing now."
When asked about early influ-
ences, Anastasio spoke of his mentor,
Ernie Stires. "He taught me a lot about
form, orchestration, and composi-
tion," the guitarist said, "Ernie really
had a huge impact on my career." The

band also grew after touring with clas-
sic-rock legends Santana in 1992. "I
don't know if it changed anything
(musically) as much as it supported
ideas that I already had," Anastasio
explained. "He definitely opened our
eyes to a few things, but mainly lent
validity to the concepts I had already
thought. Santana is incredible; I re-
spect him tremendously."
Probably the most distinct feature
of Phish is their ability to improvise
on stage. They have been known to
jam-out particular songs for over 20
minutes and then go right into the
next tune. When asked if this was
something the band prides themselves
on, Anastasio said: "I think we try to
really have an anything-can-happen
attitude and attempt to do something
new all the time. The way I see it,
there's a lot of music up there in space
and if you have no fear of falling on
your face or something, then a lot of
this stuff will kind of come out in a
live situation. Basically, what we try
to do is just get up on stage and not
think. If you're thinking, then you're
not really playing, you know?"
Comparisons are constantly being
made between Phish and Grateful

and satire.

ine, if we got rid of these boring, horrid
operas and terrible talk shows and
mething that is more fun and in drag and

hish to water
Dead. One major reason is because
both bands gather a similar group of
fans. Also, they both have that same
free-style of playing. Anastasio also
sees a connection between the Dead
and his band. "I think that the Dead
opened up a lot of doors for a lot of
bands," he explained. "They were.
really the ones who paved the way for
the whole concept of jams at live
performances and taking chances and
whatnot. They can be considred one
of the first ones who sort of brought
that jazz mentality into the rock world.
There's no question that we took a lot
from that. To me, our music is differ-
ent though."
Anastasio believes that Phish has
succeeded because of their close con-0
nection with their audience. "The con-
cept of music (is) being able to create
community," he said. "If everyone is
getting off on that energy that we
strive to create and we're playing
well, then that's all that matters to
me.
PHISH will be playing tonight at
Hill Auditorium; tickets for the
show are completely sold out. The
concert starts at 7 p.m., so be there
or be square.

takes time to build up to that point in
order for (the emotions) to be real."
With all of this intense emotion
and difficult subject matter, Simmow
believes "RSA" has also managed t
remain very accessible to all audi-
ences. The pain and hurt of isolation
and repression are basic emotions that
everyone can all relate to on a per-
sonal level. Also, she added, it should
serve as an educating tool in dealing
with the culture significance of all of
the people caught in apartheid. "I
think the play should sensitize

people," she said. "We need to be*
sensitive to other people and their-
needs and (when we do that) I think it
makes us better (people)."
Our ignorance of what went on
behind South Africa's closed doors is
certainly a tragedy. This is an oppor-
tunity to get some kind of idea of what
it was like to be there, on both sides of
the power. "RSA" should prove to be
a high-powered, emotionally exhaust-
ing production that will leave you
with a feeling of hope, and a better'
understanding of what the people of
South Africa went through, and are
still going through today.
BORN IN THE RSA plays Thursday
through Saturday at 8 p.m. and
Sunday at 2 p.m. at Lydia Men-
delssohn Theatre. Tickets are $16,
