STOMP to spend weekend making music at Lied
STOMP from page 12
Shead has had a chance not only
to see how audiences in different
cities react to STOMP, but also how
audiences from different countries
.react. Because the performers are
continuously being interchanged
from each troupe, Shead has had a
chance to perform internationally.
Shead said the audience in
Mexico was most like America, but
added that the reception for each
show differed vastly from city to city.
For example, a big city like Chicago
could still have a conservative audi
ence, he said.
“But San Francisco and Seattle
were just crazy,” Shead said.
Though the reactions to the
shows were different, Shead said, as
a whole, STOMP still had a broad
appeal that resonated for all audi

think you needed a piano, a horn or
any traditional musical element/*

Despite all the hype, projections
and rumors, most people realized that
the collective genre known as elec
tronica would never really thrive in its
Within a few short years, many of
the artists who made underground
rumbles as the so-called stars of elec
tronica’s future have tailored their
music to make it mor%palatable and
And at first glance, it would
appear that UNKLE’s debut album is
attempting to do the same. With guest
spots by Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, the
Verve’s Richard Ashcroft and even
Mike D. of the Beastie Boys, compro
mise and pop music seem inevitable.
But UNKLE makes no such
promises. The group is comprised of
Josh Davis (a.k.a. DJ Shadow) and
James Lavelle (the head honcho at
Mo’ Wax Records).
Davis’ solo albums have reflected
his pure love for DJ culture and
sound, with little in the way of com
promise. His debut “Entroducing...”
comes across as a 21st-century sym
phony, complete with repeating
motifs and recognizable themes.
Lavelle’s work with Mo’ Wax has
been equally experimental and edgy.
The fact that DJ Shadow has been his
most commercially successful artist <
is a testament to that J
And even with big-time rock stars
up front, UNKLE never flirts with
Most of “Psyence Fiction” jilts
traditional song structures, favoring
wailing sounds and slow-building
The opening track, “Guns
Blazing (Drums of Death Part I),”
begins with a quiet hum of computer
ized noise, then explodes into a break
beat that is typical DJ Shadow. An
elaborate series of verses by Kool G
Rap only makes the song more explo
“The Knock (Drums of Death
Part II)” is less impressive, with
seemingly leftover rhymes by Mike
D. It appears that “Hello Nasty”
drained this Beastie Boy of all his cre
ativity for a spell.
“Rabbit in Your Headlights,” the
Thom Yorke track, closes the album
with the sonic emotion and simplicity
that Radiohead used throughout the
magnificent “OK Computer.”
But overall, “Psyence Fiction”
comes across as an experimental and
disjointed effort that was obviously
intended as a side project
Davis’ DJ stylings rarely gel com
pletely with Lavelle’s technical sensi
bilities, and the result is an album that
has its moments, but fails to capture
the rhythm and continuity that make
nearly every other Mo’ Wax release a
joy to hear.
In short, it’s a bit disappointing.
‘Colorprint U.SA.’ opens at union gallery, across country
As a rule, an art exhibition can be in only one place at a time.
But some rules are made to be broken.
“Colorprint U.S.A.a national exhibition of original prints by more than
50 artists, opens today in the Nebraska Union’s new gallery — and in 49 other
The exhibition was conceived by Lynwood Kreneck, an artist and curator
of the Landmark Gallery at Texas Tech University. It contains 53 different
pieces created by 53 artists, and every state is represented by at least one
Karen Kune, an art professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, rep
resents Nebraska in the exhibition.
“Colorprint U.S.A.” is based on the tradition of printmakers’ exchanging
portfolios, which are circulated among artists. For the exhibition, the artists
submitted editions of prints to Kreneck, who then combined all of the works
into one cohesive exhibit. Copies of the collated exhibit were sent to each
artist’s home state. - V
The shows are intended to reveal the variety and vitality of the printmak
er’s art and contain examples of lithography, woodcut, etching and screen
printing, among others.
“Colorprint U.S.A.” opens today and runs through the weekend in the
gallery at the Nebraska Uniqp. Admission is free.
Semisonic plays Omaha tonight
Semisonic, a band featuring a percussionist who can play drums and key
board simultaneously, has slowly made itself an audible national act.
The Minneapolis rocksters have scored major airplay with “Closing
Time,” and recently “Singing in My Sleep.” With its tales of bar-hopping mis- k
adventures and romantic yearnings, the trio has found an audience among
college students and recent graduates.
Semisonic will bring its dangerously sexy suggestions^) the Sokol
Auditorium, Omaha’s classic Bohemian venue, tonight Doors open at 8 p.m.,
with special guest Guster as the opening act
For more information, call Sokol Auditorium at (402) 346-9802.
