the Reduced Shakespeare Com-
pany accomplished all this and
more, verifying the statement that
brevity is the soul of wit. The
"high-speed, roller-coaster type
condensation of all of Shake-
speare's plays," as the program de-
scribed the performance, provided
hilarious, slapstick versions of his
works which appealed to everyone,
familiar with his plays or not.
The quick witticisms of every
line proved the eloquence of the
three members of the RSC, Adam
Long, Jess Borgeson, and Reed
Martin. With a natural stage pres-
ence, the hilarious trio proved their
alacrity and sharpness in wit
through ad lib situations, such as
expounding on audience com-
ments.
Energetic and enticing, the
Company captivated the audience
with their modern anachronisms of
Shakespeare. Romeo and Juliet
were victims of petty fighting and
spleen losses. Troilus and Cressida
include the addition of Godzilla,
and Shakespeare's historical plays
were performed as the all-Ameri-
can pastime of football, with a
penalty called for the fictional
character on the field.
All in all, the RSC's perfor-
mance was a wonderfully unique
presentation of one of the greatest
literary masters of all time. Wiping
away the stigma and intimidation
of Shakespeare, it brought the au-
dience together with the perform-
ers and produced a boisterous
evening of entertainment and fun.

RECORDS
Continued from page 5
the late '70s, Tackhead has gone
through a few different stages. Gui-
tarist Skip McDonald, drummer
Keith LeBlanc, and bassist Doug
Wimbush, who have worked with
the likes of Mick Jagger and
R.E.M., started off as Tackhead
Sound System and built up a reputa-
tion as a frenetic live band. They re-
leased several singles in the early
'80s, relying mainly on their musi-
cal prowess and samples of, among
others, Margaret Thatcher. Since
about 1987, the group has featured
vocalist Bernard Fowler and a key-
boardist. Strange Things hopefully
finds them settled on their current
high-tech funk sound.
Tackhead sounds at once dated and
ultra-modern. Over grooves that
recall George Clinton's work with
Parliament-Funkadelic (which seems
to be a popular influence these days),
the band layers a few dialogue
samples and the latest in guitar and
keyboard effects. Wimbush and
LeBlanc form an excellent rhythm
section, and the entire band sounds

extremely well-rehearsed.
Of course, it helps that they're all
great musicians. From the bluesy
"Take a Stroll" (which features Mick
Jagger on harmonica) to the hip-hop
"See the Fire Burning" (which
features rapper Melle Mel), the band
proves itself adept at different styles.
They pay tribute to Clinton with a
cover of his "Super Stupid" that
blows Big Chief's local boys
version out of the water, especially
in terms of vocal delivery. (Henssler
et al did come out with their version
first, however.)
Vocalist Fowler completes the
combination. Although he often
sounds as if every syllable that
comes out of his mouth carries a bit
too much emotional weight, Fowler
has some interesting things to say.
Written before our current Persian
Gulf mess, "For This I Sing" seems
eerily prophetic: "Called away in the
prime of life... I've got to make a
decision/ Am I gonna give my life
for this country/ when so many peo-
ple have nothing?"
