Morphine brings rock noir
to Liberty Hall in Lawrence
Banter with the crowd seemed plentiful dur

“More than a commercial and less than in
formation,” Sandman said jokingly, as he
peddled the wares of the band. His laid-back
style has been compared to the likes of Jack
Kerouac and is unmistakable during the band’s
The five-song encore included a charged
rendition of “Lucky Day,” from “Good.” The
emotional and soul-searching cut “In Spite of
Me” washed waves of remorse over the crowd,

This honest and true-to-form style has won
over many fans for Morphine and has rocketed
the band into the public eye.
“Early to Bed,” the first single off
Morphine’s lastest album, is already in heavy
rotation on MTV. Playing on the H.O.R.D.E.
tour and recording for a new label
(Dreamworks) exemplify the strides the band
is making, and the members of Morphine are
excited about the success.
ABBOTTS from page 12
were young, leaving a widowed mother
to support the family as a school teacher.
The Abbotts are the royal family of
Haley, a position envied by Jacey and not
entirely understood by Doug. The two
boys become involved with the sisters of
this family, creating problems that reveal
a haunted past.
“Inventing the Abbotts” adds new
depth to a well-reamed romance genre.
The true strength of the film lies in the
well-scripted characters and the complex
ity of their interactions. All involved

It is this depth that makes the story
worthwhile; the unwinding plot line sur

general charm of the film succeeds in

The title of the play — “All Tangled Up”
— was also created by the students, Raz said.
“They said they felt a lot like that dealing
with these issues,” Raz said. “This is not a clear
cut issue, and it brings up a lot of very emo
tional and powerful thoughts and symbols.”
Not all of the symbols are going to appeal
to everyone because of the subject matter, but
no one needs to worry about a violation of UNL
non-smoking policy, Raz said.
“We do use symbols, and some are kind of
harsh because the subjects we are dealing with
are not all sweetness and light, but we do not
bum a cross in the play.
“The students have been pretty unanimous
in agreement that we are treating symbols cor
rectly with respect to the issue we are dealing
We have to speak the truth.
The research on “All Tangled Up” was
handled on several different levels, Raz said.
“One group of students interviewed people,
and one student even talked to a self-avowed
racist skinhead,” Raz said. “Others found press
clippings and the web jockeys accessed the Ku
Klux Klan web site.”
The purpose of the play is not to answer
questions, but to raise them, Raz said.
“Our aim is not to make a definitive state
ment,” he said. “That is rarely what theater is
“As implied, questions are raised more than
the answers are given.”
Raz said he hoped the play would generate
discussion on the issues of diversity and that
people would leave talking about the play and
telling each other stories.
“Toward the end,” he said, “we give some
vision of the future, and some of our own mod
est stories of how to heal.”

FESTIVAL from page 12
local and otherwise — in the business. The
bands performing are: The Neptunes, In Limbo,
Dave Barger and the Jam Masters, Baby Jason
and the Spankers, the Russell Jackson Band,
Indigenous and Sherman Robertson.
The Neptunes, In Limbo, and Dave Barger
and the Jam Masters are all Omaha bands, and
Baby Jason and the Spankers are from Lincoln.
Russell Jackson played bass with blues legend
B.B. King for seven years as part of the Silent
Partners rhythm section.
Indigenous have become the blues darlings
of the Midwest and have garnered national at
tention with their Inaugural and SXSW per
formances. Headliner Sherman Robertson, al
though a blues guitarist, played on Paul Simon’s
“Graceland” album, as well as with zydeco art
ist Clifton Chenier.
Terry O’Halloran, owner of the 18th
Amendment, said the concept of Blues Fest
was primarily selfish in origin.
“It started because I had Russell Jackson
booked for the date, and then Sherman
Robertson wanted the date as well,” he said. “I
tried to get creative on how I could do both
bands, so we decided to make it a big deal —
an all-day/all-night thing.”

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Can you say “low
rock” without flinching?
Drummer Billy Conway did, when asked to
describe Morphine’s innovative rock noir
sound. The combination of two-string bass,
saxophone and drums smells of simplicity, yet
conveys the most complicated of emotions and
With no fancy lighting, no elaborate stage
and no opening act, Morphine took the stage
in a sold-out Liberty Hall on Tuesday night.
Led by Mark Sandman, singer and bassist,
Conway and saxophonist Dana Colley, Mor
phine prepared to deliver its own brand of rock
with a twist of cool.
The hour-and-a-half set spanned all four
albums, including their lastest release, “Like
Swimming.” The two-string slide bass reso
nated with the baritone sax, filling the hall with
an ambience of pain, recovery, sadness and re
silience. “Buena,” off “Cure For Pain,” along
with that album’s title cut, glowed in the dim
light of the auditorium. Morphine’s talent shone
through the murky smoke with a clean and crisp
show including Colley playing two saxophones
