Uriah Heep; a jpunkrock groUtf df the
first echelon, has been around for quite a
while. Its last couple of albums have been
given wider exposure and air play to the
point that most radio listeners recognize
their name and sound.
Savoy Brown has been around the rock
scene for several years, too. Initially touted
as an English blues band, they also play
loud. Its recordings have gained a reputation
for mediocrity, but its live performances are
supposed to be top-notch.
Tuesday the scene switches to the Royal
Grove for a one-night performance by
Wayne Cochran and the C.C. Riders.
Cochran, a white soul singer from Macon,
Ga., has been around for at least a decade.
He used to be referred to as "the white
James Brown" although he was never really
that good. His newest album release is sort
of a critical flop but the man puts himself
into his music.
If you dig tail-shaking, ear-screeching
music you should make it out to the Grove
Because Tuesday is election day the doors
won't open until 8 p.m. Admission price is
three bucks and you'd better arrive early for
a good seat.
Incidentally, the recently remodeled
Royal Grove is a decent place to have a few
drinks and see some good local bands. There
is plenty of elbow space at the tables and a
pretty good sized dance floor for some
The only drawback is the crowd, which
tends to get noisy and rowdy and often
neglects to listen to the good music on the

Smoking weird cigarettes today is pretty
common. And getting busted for it is
becoming almost a direct effect of it.
Everybody knows somebody who's been
sent up. Everybody wishes they could have
done something about it. Like getting a line
on a super dope lawyer.
Michael Stepanian has practiced law since
1967 in San Francisco. Pot Shots offers
some good advice on how not to get busted,
what to do if you are, why you shouldn't

"Mime is universal, it's everyone standing and watching as
well as myself performing. It's those joining in with me,"
mime Toni Attell said.
This is why she feels it is a language that can reach anyone.
Attell will give classes, shows and improvisation sessions while
visiting campus. She is from San Francisco, where she
performs as a street mime.
"Home base for me is 'the cannery,' a shopping center done
like a Renaissance Fair, where I have a stage and people in the
streets that watch and participate. About 200 kids come each
day," AtteJ said.
She related episodes where she has gone to grammar schools
or dropped in at recess unannounced and started involving the
kids, only to have the principal start hassling her.
"The kids have rebeled against the principal and gotten
classes released in order to have me stay," Attell said.
In trying to involve people walking down the street, Attell
says she has gotten away from a lot of classical mimes. She
uses a contemporary theme, since this is what concerns the
people she meets on the streets.
"Sometimes I imitate people. Every person is different and
there is something about them that shows this. I can start with
a mime cabled 'Box' which soon gathers people. Children
always join in 'Gangster' a mime of a gangster shoot-out,"
Attell said. This is dona to gather a group for more mimes.
People usually are hostile and want to hit her, or just a little
frightened, not knowing what is happening, she said.
"Sometimes I get a oeautiful reaction. People get into
participating, especially children, but I've had old men riding
horses, pulling ropes or chewing bubblegum.
"Children are really open, things flow from them. They
participate beautifully and have a wonderful sense of timing
comedy," Attell said.
Attell said she wears make-up, consisting of white face and
"laughing tears" because it eases people's minds so they can
relate to her, but separate her from being a crazy freak.
"I call them laughing tears because you can't have all good
without some bad, a person has to be able to take both," she
