Alice Cooper. Just the name con
jures up images of the kind of deca
dence associated with rock'n'roll
that makes parents groups want to
censor things. But Alice Coopei
needs a bit of historical context.
At the beginning of the '70s, rock
was becoming more and more fac
tionalized: singer-songwriters, heavy
metal, pop, art rock, and then the
punks came along and condemned
all of them. y
Meanwhile, glitter rock, whose
sole purpose was to be more theat
rical, outrageous, or both than eve
ryone else, split violently when Coop
er arrived. With Bowie, the acknow
ledged king of the early '70s glitter
genre, it was all style: theatrical,
ethereal and,' otherworldly. Space
Oddity, Diamond Dogs, Zitfgy Star
dust and the Spiders from Mars. You
were supposed to wonder what it ail
meant. With Cooper, there was no

doubt it didn't mean anything, but
could he really mean what, he said?
Did he really do the things on-stage
they said he did?
For better or worse, the day Vin
cent Furnier first claimed he was
the reincarnation of 17th-century
witch, Alice Cooper, American pop
music cuStuVe was altered forever.
Alice Cooper's legacy includes
hits like "Cruier My Wheels," "No
More Mr. Nice Guy," "Billion Dollar
Babies," "Sick Things," "1 Love The
Dead" and "Cold Ethyl."
"Eighteen" is probably Cooper's
finest hour. One of the premier
songs of the teen age experience, it
perfectly sums up the paradox, of
soaring adult confidence and cring
ing childhood uncertainty that it is
to be 1 8. And who can forget "School's
Out," which guarantees Cooper per
petual fame by getting him a whole
new generation of fans every spring.
For better or worse, Alice Cooper
will be at Omaha's Civic Auditorium
tonight, with Tesla opening at 8.

Yes, it's Texas month at the Zoo Bar.
Take a quick look at the schedule and
you'll see examples of every type of
Texan music being played in juke
joints all over America. Two nights ago
the mad polkatharsis of Brave Combo
bounced around theoo; further down
the schedule, we'll ge the rootsy blues
of Anson Funderburgh, the new-guard,
power pop-rock of the Wold Seeds and
the Tex-Mex blowout of Joe "King"
Carrasco, early in April.
And tonight, Evan Johns and the II
Bombs make their debut appearance,
yet another "Trash, Twang and Thunder"
guitar band from Austin. How does
Austin produce so many excellent guitar
ists? How does Austin produce all
those great basketball players? How
does Lebanon produce all those terror
ists? I suppose it's just tradition.
Evan Johns isn't a native Austin
player, but his guitar style is. He was
invited to tour with the ultimate Texas
rock'n'roll band, .the LeRoi Brothers,
while living in Washington, D.C.
In 1985, Johns invited his old D.C.
friends to migrate south, and his origi
nal band, the H-Bombs, was reborn.
Their full length debut LP on Jungle
Records is a little taste of each Texas
style you might hear during the next
month at the Zoo.
