All said and done, how much did
Paramount drop on me? About
$800, I'd say, give or take a hun
dred. And there were about 70 col
lege journalists there, plus the 40 or
50 members of the “alternative”
press. That’s roughly $96,000 in all.
Hey, no one said trying to buy
off the press was cheap.
Does this kind of thing happen
all the time? Let’s be blunt—yep.
People are always trying to buy
journalists off in an effort to get fa
vorable coverage. Big newspapers
generally have policies against ac
cepting any sort of free material in
an attempt to fend off the specter of
But, as my editor said, we ARE
a college paper.
“Have fun,” he said. “Just keep
track of everything and don’t let
yourself be bought. If the movies are
bad, say so.”
Is it going to be the last time it
happens? Probably not. Paramount
said they were going to start doing
this again on a regular basis, and one
of the other journalists I met said
20th Century Fox had called, tell
ing her they were considering a
Did all of the money affect my
judgment? Sorry Paramount, but
nope. I’m firmly enough set in my
ways and believe in myself enough
as a critic to know that I honestly
wasn’t swayed—I just had a good
time on someone else’s bill.

Although Sunday’s show at the
Ranch Bowl was on the second leg of
the tour, the crowd still seemed rela
tively ambivalent toward the band.
A few pierced teen-agers hung in
the comers of the sparsely populated
room where the concert was held,
tables and chairs occupied most of the
perimeter and half of the floor by the
stage. When the opening band, Old
Boy Network, had finished its set,
Primitive Radio Gods launched into a
hazy three-cord guitar assault that
lasted through the first three songs.
After the assault, O Connor com
mented on the segregation of the audi
ence, those sitting at the bar and the
younger crowd sitting down by the
“Yeah, great country. I was in the
Navy. I love how they can ship you off
to get your legs blown away, but you
can’t (kink a beer.”
A few teen-agers acted as if they
had just experienced an epically, and
those by the bar asked for another beer.
About halfway through the set there
was a brief pause and the introduction
to “Standing...” broke through the
darkness. A wild applause came from
the crowd as it gathered in front of the
stage, and a junior high sock-hop

The piano sections in the song are
derived from the keyboard; unfortu

The crowd slowly dissipated after
the song was done. A significant pro
portion headed for the door, while the
rest of the crowd filtered out during the
second half of the show.
“We try to keep the shows fresh,
we alternate the songs and do some El
sides and everything...but they-are all
very structured,” O’Connor said.
