The dogs on Main Street howl 'Cause they understand If I could take i>ne moment into my hands Mister, I ain't a btly—no. I'm a man And I believe in a Promised Land K Springsteen would be hacked off if 1 was to tell him that he writes anthems. He doesn't want to be a doctrinaire. He just doesn't know any better. As for me. 1 want the lyrics to"Thunder Road" carved on my tombstone. Springsteen's still out there stalking his turf, from the "Streets of Fire" to the "Darkness on the Edge of Town," adrift at the end of a decade that seems to have betrayed the bright promise of rock and roll. Springsteen's command of the language has become more concise and controlled, but he sings li...

FOR YOUR CHILDREN Dead Boi/s Sire SRK 6054 There's nothing particularly new about this stuff; LeeAnn and the Bizarros were doing the same thing, only better, at Bevo's every Friday night five years ago. The Dead Boys were one of the first groups that the New York rock in- telligensia creamed over two years ago, when it came to their myopic attention that three-chord rock had never disap- parts of the South that Seger inspires in itie Midwest. But, although the band is vastly improved from earlier efforts (sounds like they've been listening to peared, but merely gone underground to CBGB's. As such, it's gratifying to see that the Boys have lost none of their cutting edge, despite b...

That Was The Week That Was, Wasn't It? A ' by I oh ii T. Davis It was quite a week-and-a-half for Austin music devotees. Only now, thumbing back, through crumpled, indecipherable notes does the whole byzantine skein begin to assume some sort of coherence. It's hard to read those notes; the eyes have been per- manently dilated by the glare of ten nights of neons. Harder still to transcribe them; the left hand is stained with nicotine to the wrist, and the right hand is clenched in a rigid claw, suitable only for clutching a highball glass. "The night life ain't no good life, but it's my life," eh? Well, that rationale cuts both ways. I struck out on the trail of the night life Thursday the 8th, burning up the road bet- ween here and Soap Creek Saloon to watch Mother of Pearl play their guacalypso music for a half-full house. Very pleasant—a night on the town, good conversation, a cocktail or five with friends, etc. Friday evening found me darkening Soap Creek's door again, listening ...

Grease Travolta's a cross between Steve Martin's "cwrazy, sthwinging guy" and Marilyn Monroe. by Daryl Janes Hollywood butchers Broadway musicals more often than the Houston Astros trade away All-Star players. They start out on the right track, recognizing that the medium of film is different from live theater. It's more intimate and can be more realistic—with real grass and trees, and cars, and etc.—and more fantastic, using the technical facilities of film to in- duce fantasy. A good film can be made of any play, poem, story, history, or current event that exists. The problem is tran- sposing the meaning, feeling, and ex- citement of one form to the other. With The Music Alan, one of the most original musicals ever written and the first totally American one, Hollywood proved than even a profit-comes-first film colony could make the jump from stage to film without sacrificing the in- tegrity of the original work, even adding to its beauty. Several years earlier, Wes/ Side Story was...

g by Demi Prentiss Robert and Marilynn Horton are a remarkable couple. The two have been married 17 years, and have worked together frequently and happily Both are highly trained, highly talented people, each able to hold his or her own onstage without support from the other. And each clearly enjoys the other, relishing both the freshness and the stability of their relationship. The Mortons are starring in Country Dinner Playhouse's production of Same Time Next Year, a script which Clive Bar- nes praised as one of the best to hit Broadway in many years. The play opened four years ago in New York and has played to enthusiastic audiences ever since. Same Time Next Year tells the story of a couple through 24 years of annual reunions George and Doris are happily married, to other people. But once a year for nearly a quarter of a century—from |f51 to 1975- the two meet for an in- stallment love affair In the process of chronicling this romance, the play tells the story of their coming of...

Break Out The Brylcreme cont'd from page 9 I'50's—style, culture, music, language—but like any good parody it was faithful to the original. If Grease had maintained various levels of fantasy—which, in a culture without a defined puberty rite, adolescence is—the film would have worked. Or if the real parts had been really real—not "Happy Days"/"Dobie Gillis" swill, but Blackboard lungle/Last Picture Show real—it might have worked. Or maybe they could have made the dream parts more real—Frankie Avalon singing "Beauty School Dropout" in an alley, or as a short-order cook, instead of in a sterile, white, past-his-prime-but- still-cute cherub scene. The same is true of the music. The songs from the play fit. Parodies though they are, they retain the style and the beat. Especially the beat. That's what the '50's were about. The bass line would start and you couldn't—actually couldn't—stay still. The songs they added sounded like rejects from Saturday Night Fei>er—tooka-tooka-tooka-pick...

The city needs qualified personnel, not "so-and-so's ol* buddy." Recently, in what was somewhat of an emergency situation, the city hired a policeman to fill the gap left by the resignation of two men from the department. I he man was apparently hired because an ex-law enforcement official of the county recommended him to the city. Nobody bothered to check the man's record with a nearby police depart- ment where he was once employed. Nobody found out that he had been suspended from that department under less than desirable circumstances. All of these things were brought to the city's attention after the man was hired, and even then, not at the city'% request. It appears that persons...
