NEXT TIME YOU eat an apple,
think about the part you're
throwing away. Sometimes bitter,
sometimes sweet, the core is all-too-
Better yet, don't wait until the next
time you eat an apple because this
Saturday night at Rick's, the Core will
perform their ska/dance rock, found on
their new EP, The Core.
The four songs on this EP emphasize
the beat, subordinating the lyrics to the
The Core consists of Kurt Resch
(guitar/vocals), Bill Corfield
(keyboards/vocals), Brook Duer
(bass), and Kenny Crisafio (drums).
Resch wrote two songs and
collaborated on a third, and his distin-
ctive vocals lead the first cut, "Love is
Around You". He adds a fluid, rhyth-
mic guitar to the funk-edged rocker, but
the song's simple, cliched lyrics drag it
The next song "While You Were Out"
continues in the same vein with Duer's
bass supplying a slow, chunky riff.
The EP's longest song (4:441
minutes) is a plus for a long dance, but
again the lyrics are disappointing:
Resch sings, "I Love You / I need you /
I care for you" and repeats it, changing
the last line to "I share with you". Bob
Dylan rests easy, folks.
Guest saxophonist Marc Reisman
adds punch to the English Beat-like
"My Friend". Even a funny break
about an imagined friend named Tom
doesn't lift this song from lyrics like
"My friend / Dig those vibes you send",
which sounds like it was stolen from the
The EP ends with a slow dance tune
called "Power of a Woman", of which
the most exciting part is the addition of
a Roland drum machine.
It all boils down to art versus dancing
- and they'll definitely be dancing at
Rick's Saturday night.

arm, The Blind Pig presents L.A. disc
