Chris Kelley, co-owner of
Knickerbockers, said he and his part
ner enjoyed attending local shows
when they were students at the Uni
versity of Nebraska-Lincoln.
“It’s something we always wanted
to do,” he said.
In addition to giving local and
regional alternative bands exposure,
Kelley said that offering live music
helps draw people away from the
main bar-hopping district.
Kelley said Knickerbockers would
continue to offer original local bands.
However, it plans to work more and
more with regional and up-and-com
ing bands.
To bring the weekend of live mu
sic to an end, Tom Ficke will play
Sunday at Duffy’s at 10 p.m. Admis
sion will be $2.
Art faculty shows off work
By Paula Lavigne
Senior Reporter
If art is a reflection of society,
then the Department of Art and Art
History’s exhibition is a reflection
of UNL’s artistic culture.
The department’s Faculty Bi
ennial Exhibition, which opens
today and runs through March 12
in Richards Hall, shows the artistic
variety that students are exposed to
through their instructors.
One of the most vocal pieces,
although untitled, is a mixed-me
dia by Julie Strathman, a graduate
student. Half a brain rests atop a
board; the other half lies beneath.
Above the board is a paintbrush,
below—two bullets.
This piece suggests that the
upper brain processes the more
important, aesthetic value of art,
while the lower brain resorts to
primal violence.
“The Language of Cast Shad
ows,” an oil triptych by graduate
student Deborah Monfelt, is an
excellent tutorial for mastering
technique with its representation
of lattice, foliage and shadows.
Lincoln artist and temporary
instructor Susan Puelz contributed
“Earthworks VI” to the collection.
Puelz’ watercolor depiction of
buttes and mesas in vivid contrast
ing colors almost moves as if vis
ible wind flows across the canvas.
A woodcut by temporary instruc
tor Ardy Cunningham titled “Gen
esis” blends hot magenta and or
anges with cubes and an almost
Van Gogh circular center.
Teaching assistant Craig Roper
adds a true splash of creative dar
ing with his untitled piece and
“Dad’s Suit.” Roper photographs
an object and then uses the actual
object in the exhibit.
For “Untitled,” he placed 25
baseball gloves below 133 photo
graphs of baseball gloves. Simi
larly, his “Dad’s Suit” was hung
above a photograph of that suit.
Three pears on a checkerboard
table added some authentic Ne
braska to the exhibit with “3 of a
Kind,” by temporary instructor
Terry L. Hager.
These oils, watercolors, wood
cuts, sculptures, textiles, photo- '
graphs and other works by UNL
faculty members prove that Ne
braska does indeed have culture.
The exhibit showed true cre
ativity and not just a representa
tion of stoic artistic styles.
Although it would have been
nice to see more work by full-time
faculty members, the exhibit was
full of growing talent that Nebraska
is ready to harvest.
Various Artists
“Street Fighter - Soundtrack”
Grade: B
From the popular video game
“Street Fighter II” comes the new
Jean-Claude Van Damme movie
“Street Fighter.” And from the
movie comes the soundtrack, the
first soundtrack ever for the hip
hop label Priority.
Priority makes a splash with its
first effort using rap veterans Ice
Cube, LL Cool J and Public En
emy, as well as rap’s high-powered
new jacks Nas and Craig Mack.
The album’s high point, how
ever, is not from any of these well
knowns, but from a trio of rela
tively unknowns. “Come Widdit”
is the song, and the three are
Ahmad, Ras Kass and Saafir.
The song has a raw, late 1980s
feel with the live scratching and
simple chorus chant. Ahmad has
the high-pitched voice, and Saafir
has the bizarre stop-and-go flow,
but Ras Kass’ lyrics blow it away
with “Body chemistry consists of
Hennessey/Toxic melanin with an
adamantium skeleton/Like Wol
verine, child, my heart pumps kero
Apart from this exceptional
track, nothing on the rest of the
album stands out.
Ice Cube is solid on the title
track, but Public Enemy disappoints
on “Rumbo N Da Jungo,” a song
introducing the Wreck League.
Paris stays well within his style
of Black-power hip hop on his track
“Street Soldier.” Pharcyde does
well on the first single, “Pandemo
nium,” but he’s not quite in top
form. .
Similarly, Nas’ “One On One”
and Craig Mack’s “Do You Have
What ItTakes?”are good, but could
be better.
Hammer joins San Francisco
49ers quarterback Deion Sanders
on one track. Hammer notwith
standing, these songs are worth a
listen. “Come Widdit” is almost
worth the whole album.

“Stolen Moments: Red Hot +
GRP Records
Grade: B
In its fifth installation, the Red
Hot organization has joined jazz
and hip-hop artists to raise money
for AIDS research.
Jazz is no stranger to hip hop. A
number of groups have been push
ing the edge of creativity, fusing
jazz with their rap for several years
now. The idea of this album was to
place those hip-hop groups and a
few other musicians with jazz leg
In some cases, the pairings work
extremely well. Other times, they
fall flat.
To start off the album, Red Hot
showcases Guru of Gang Starr, a
rapper who has often combined
jazz and rap. Here he is teamed
with Donald Byrd in a very short
song, “Time Is Moving On.”
For the first time, Guru does not
seem to mesh the flow with his
choppy delivery. The song is a far
cry from his album “Jazzamatazz”,
which featured him with different
live jazz musicians on every song.
Guru is followed by MC Solarr,
a French rapper who made his
American debut on “Jazzamatazz,”
with Ron Carter on bass making
“Un Ange En Danger.” One of the
disc’s highlights, the song is rapped
completely in French.
Michael Franti, formerly of Dis
posable Heroes of Hiphopracy, and
Spearhead join on “Positive,” an
AIDS-awareness song that has
Franti asking, “How’m I gonna
live my life when I’m positive?”
Breaking from the hip-hop
genre, RedHot paired bassist/singer
Me’Shell NdegeOcello with key
board king Herbie Hancock. What
they came up with was “Nocturnal
Sunshine,” a terrific song.
NdegeOcello is so impressive that
Hancock almost disappears.
Another hip-hop crew known
for using jazz is Digable Planets.
“Flyin’ High In the Brooklyn Sky”
is performed with Lester Boie on
trumpet and Wah Wah Watson on
guitar. The song feels like it could
have stepped right off a Planets’
Other good tracks include the
safe-sex anthem “The Rubbers
Song” by the Pharcyde and “Pro
ceed II” by the Roots with Roy
Us3 makes an appearance with
Joshua Redman and Tony Remy.
But “The Scream” is a far cry from
A bonus compact disc is in
cluded. The extra disc contains
three songs: “ALove Supreme” by
Branford Marsalis in a wonderful
but long (18 minute) tribute to
John Coltrane.
Despite the few disappoint
ments, “Stolen Moments” is defi
nitely worth checking out.
