MITCH'S
Continued from Page 11D
For students who
are here now, these
decisions are best left for
speculation until after the
space's opening - for all
I know, the whole thing
could be a horrible failure.
But luckily for those of us
who care, UMMA took a
risk and didn't completely
shut its doors.
So here's a toast -
perhaps with Mitch's beer
- to the grand experiment.

PIRATES
Continued from Page 111D
Man's Chest" depends on too many of
the same twists and antics as its pre-
decessor. They've worn out their wel-
come by now.
But "Dead Man's Chest" is hardly
a failure. What it loses to the first
film in originality and charm, it
makes up for in a deeper plot, non-
stop action and astounding special
effects. It follows ambitious effects-
driven sequences that flow so seam-
lessly and could hardly be attempted
in another film. And that has payoffs
in aesthetics, which have to count for
something.
Like Sparrow himself, "Dead
Man's Chest" is peculiar, hard to

describe and easy to love and hate
at the same time. Like most second
editions of trilogies, it has no begin-
ning or end, and would be a fail-
ure if it stood alone, but luckily, it
doesn't. The narrative mess the film
creates will hardly deter audiences,
who have already packed theaters in
record numbers.
As frustrating as it is,"Dead Man's
Chest" is good enough to pique inter-
est for the next film, "At World's
End," which opens next summer.
Captain Jack will sail again, and
that's enough to look forward to.

NOMO
Continued from Page 4D
and the boost of bassist/vocalist Jaime
Register.
In addition to the stellar lineup,
producer Warn Defever is Nomo's
ace in the hole. Defever did a ter-
rific job capturing the excitement of
a Nomo performance at The Blind
Pig, while giving every instrument
space and deftly integrating exotic
sounds and ideas.
The disc leads off with "Nu Tones,"
and boy do those handclaps hit hard.
The distorted thumb piano carves out
a riff before the swaggering horns
take over. Bergman's tenor reminds
that not only does he write beauti-
fully intricate melodies and powerful

arrangements, but he can also blow
some fire as well.
The album is music for dancing
down South Division St., for celebrat-
ing Ann Arbor in the spring with a
toss on the Diag or a jog through the
Arb. "Hand to Mouth" introduces an
indomitable Fender Rhodesto the fra-
cas, as the band careens through cor-
ners, turning on the face of a dime,
stretching a motif until the breaking
point and ending right back where they
started.
The album is so joyous because
New Tones is injected with the same
quirky spirit as the place that spawned
it. The space, the texture, the tension,
the depth of it all - are as nuanced as
Ann Arbor. The booming baritone on
"The Reason" sounds like the horn of

a train roaring down the tracks, and
carries as much weight in its delivery.
New Tones is a grand success and
its release on the esteemed Los Ange-
les label Ubiquity Records will make
Nomo Ann Arbor's most important
musical export since Defever's own
His Name is Alive signed to 4AD
more than 15 years ago. There can be
no better representative, no one more
passionate or earnest than Bergman
and his crew. This record is something
for Ann Arbor to be proud of, a heal-
ing force to move the spirit and shake
the body.
