Guns N’ Roses fans pack Twisters Music and Gifts, 6105 “O” St., for the
Midnight Madhouse Listening Party.
Twisters hosts party for new release
By Robert Richardson
Senior Reporter
The biggest party in Lincoln on Monday
beer wasn’t served. The biggest party was at
Twisters Music and Gifts, 6105 O St., and the
party favor was a pair of new releases
“Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illu
sion II,” the newest LPs from the rock band
Guns N’ Roses were the reason for the hoopla,
fondly called the “Guns N’ Roses Midnight
Madness Listening Party.”
With the doors scheduled to open at 11:30
p.m. for a midnight release (the earliest pos
sible release allowed by the record company)
of the albums, scores of people waited outside
to be one of the first in Lincoln to purchase

With more than 300 excited customers
jammed into Twisters, midnight was a long
time coming. But lines of fans clutching T
shirts and new music counted down the last 10
seconds until midnight with a fired-up air that
would have made GN’R frontman Axl Rose
The cash registers began ringing and didn’t
stop for more than an hour. Twisters’ employee
Kyle Tonniges said he was happy to see the
money roll in, but said that since Twisters was
selling the CD’s and cassettes below cost, this
could be considered a promotion.
“It’s sort of a public relations thing because
we’re selling it as soon as we could,” Tonniges

There is light at the end of the tunnel, as the
fall movie season promises to lift video rentals.
October and November will include releases of
the biggest hits of last spring and summer.
October boasts the release of 199l’s Oscar
nominated “The Field” and “The Godfather
III.” It also features two films sure to be nomi
nees next year, “Silence Of The Lambs,” with
Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, and Albert
Brooks’ “Defending Your Life.”

Before Thanksgiving rolls around, video
renters will be able to see Bill Murray in “What
About Bob,” and Kathleen Turner will return
to the video marketplace with this summer’s
disappointing “V.I. Warshawski.”
One of the biggest bombs of the summer,
“Hudson Hawk” with Bruce Willis, will limp
to video in November as well. Look for “City
Slickers” and “Terminator 2” to blast to home
video before Christmas.

startling “Swagger,” they are nothing new to
England. The five albums recorded since 1984
mark the progression of the Blue Aeroplanes
through a scenic pop panorama.
Much of the band’s originality lies in its
state of constant change. “Beatsongs” com
bines the sprightly spirit of the Stone Roses
with the pure happiness of the Byrds, with a
necessary pinch of Van Morrison thrown in for
good measure.
So why all the different styles?
“I get bored,” Bruschini explains. “With
many of my albums, maybe I’ll just play one
side. I love vinyl. It’s warmer and more pleas
ant. I want my music bigger.”
And big they are. “Beatsongs” with its
minimum of three guitars and fat recording,

manage to be enormous.
“We wanted to record the whole thing live.
The La’s keep going on about ‘We want the old
sound ...’ They should go to L.A.,” Bruschini
They should stop whining, he said.
The secret behind the Blue Aeroplanes is
the simplicity of the pop song and the soul
behind it.
“I think all good pop songs should show real
emotions — a good pop song always has that,”
Bruschini said.
The cover of Paul Simon’s “The Boy In The
Bubble,” carries the soul of both Simon and the
Blue Aeroplanes. Ironically, vocalist/lyricist
Gerard Langley was originally laughed at for
suggesting it.
“We laughed at him at first. But it works.
The (song) (ended itself to make a guitar riff,”
Bruschini said.
The Blue Aeroplanes love what they’re doing.

their boundless talents.
Sticking to the seedy underbelly of
Dublin’s working class district, he
avoids the postcard locales usually
associated with Ireland.
Parker also accomplishes a first by
using a new system lor shooting and
recording the music live, doing away
with lip-synching and maintaining the
“The Commitments” is a venture
which could easily have missed, but
Parker succeeds with great style.
