14—The Daily Collegian Monday, Oct. 27. IDB6 Spikers' scrimmage a success By DAVE SOTTILE Collegian Sports Writer The men’s volleyball team got its new season under way Friday night as the spikers held their annual Blue- White scrimmage at Rec Hall. The White squad, led by Head Coach Tom Toit, captured a 3-1 victory over the Blue, coached by Assistant Coach Eric Shope. Tait mixed the lineups, using differ ent combinations in each of the four games to allow the team to get com fortable with each other as it pre pares for a mid-November clash with perennial power, USC. The scrimmage saw just one in jury, as Keith Yarros suffered a sprained right ankle in the second game and was helped off the floor. According to Tait, Yarros, a junior, should be fine and is not, expected to miss the Nov. 15-16 clash with the Trojans.

"We think Keith will be ready for use. “I was pretty pleased with the calibre of play out there, and I was particularly pleased with the way the new guys (freshmen and walk-ons) performed,” Tait said. “They all played at a level above what they have been in practice. 1 was really hoping that would happen. Tait is pleased that he accom plished his major goals in the match. “I wanted to get Keith some work at the setter spot, but his injury prevented that from happening.” he said. “Other than that, I thought we accomplished everything we wanted as we prepare for USC.

As we prepare for USC the timing between them will come along.” According to Gaspar, playing to gether as a team in Rec Hall for the first time since the NCAA Final Four Championships last spring meant a great deal. “Playing against ourselves isn’t like playing against another team,” Chase said. “I’m sure we’ll be work ing on our intensity starting at prac $285/montl P.M.. cable, dishwasher, microwave, WO rk WANTED.

We won’t let that happen again and I’m sure we’ll be fine when the season starts.” One obstacle the team must over come is the physical environment of Rec Hall. "The lighting in here is tough to adjust to,” Tait said, “especially since we’re used to practicing in .the South Gym.” As for the player shuffle dealt by Tait, Gaspar said the moves were necessary. “Nine or ten guys could start for this team right now," he said, “and I have to adjust to setting for a lot of different guys.” While Gaspar was upbeat about the evening’s events, Tait’s other retur ing All-American, Chris Chase, thought that the exhibition was unim pressive in general. “I wasn’t all that impressed with the way everybody played,” said Chase.

Although awards were given, the meet, hosted by the diving team, was basically one for obser vation and experience said Penn State Head Coach Craig Brown. “This meet doesn’t affect our standings any,” he said. “It’s more of a training and judgement meet.,” This being the first meet of the season, the divers were not quite LOST ONE GOLD earring be- MIDNIGHT MOTION DJ'S.

Most divers did not achieve their peak level of perfor mance. “This is their first meet of the season, so the divgrs really aren’t polished,” Brown said. “They’re making some mistakes, but they’re also making some good dives.” Senior Bruce Ebel, a finalist in both the one-meter and three-me ter competition, was the only member of Penn State’s men’s team to make the final round of either competition. Ebel placed fifth in the three-meter and third in the one-meter finals. “We did well for the first meet of the season,” Ebel said. “We had a lot of fun.” Brown agreed with Ebel’s anal ysis of the team.

Stay ahead of the game with Collegian Sports arts Feelies and Balls evoke enthusiastic crowd response By NATALIE NICHOLS Collegian Arts Writer Friday night’s Feelies concert in the HUB Ballroom, sponsored by WPSU-FM, was rather deserted, with a crowd of only about 100 people. I think the low attendance was due not so much to a lack of interest as to the fact that many of those who would have attended were instead grooving at the R.E.M. concert in Pittsburgh. The small crowd that did show was enthusiastic, and most enjoyed both the Feelies and their special guest, the Balls, immensely. Thus, this re viewer was in the minority on some points. The Balls, a Philadelphia band, got things started with the loud but me lodic music of Jim Stager (bass), Steve Maglio (guitar) and Dave Ei senhower (drums). Maglio explained before the show that the group is influenced by artists such as the Meat Puppets, the Replacements, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles and the Velvet Underground. This background showed itself often in the Balls’ reper toire of mostly original, basic rock’n’roll tunes. Dressed casually in jeans and tee shirts, the Balls’ members opened the show with an original called “Full Circle.” They seemed a bit shy with the audience at first, but warmed up almost immediately, sometimes making corny comments throughout most of the set. This familiarity was probably due to their previous en counter with a University audience two weeks ago, when they opened for the Johnsons. The Balls really heated up with their “Cousin Jane,” a rockin’, funky number featuring some strong guitar leads. “Bombs Are Coming,” a dark, spooky tune, switched the mood from funky to brooding, although the group’s performance was not as tight here as on their previous rock num- Tokyo String Quartet: Group's gestures distract, but music enchants By BETH BRESTENSKY Collegian Arts Writer Sometimes concert-goers lose sight of a musical sense by focusing visual cues instead of aural ones. It is possible that this happened at the Tokyo String Quartet concert Saturday night. The crowd brought the performer back on stage four times at the e t"bf the concert; yet because the . udience members shunned thei- responsibilities as spectators, the musicians were cer tainly justified in not providing an encore. concert review Perhaps it was the Lion’s crushing victory over the Crimson Tide that caused the restlessness among the crowd. But even that is no excuse to be disrespectful to master musicians. The first interruption came after the beginning movement of the open ing selection. When the audience thought that Wolfgang Amadeus Mo zart’s Quartet No. 17 in B-flat major was over, applause prematurely erupted before the piece’s end. Throughout the rest of the perfor mance, the audience forgot that the time between movements isn’t an invitation to “get situated.” It should New A & A dean to share musical talent, love of organ By BETH BRESTENSKY reached the 9th grade.

Still, “Bombs” was one of the Balls’ more interesting tunes a ghost story of a song which became a nightmarish clash of musical noise. , Perhaps the highlight of the Balls’ set was their fast, ripping version of Hendrix’s “Fire,” a tune I have often heard covered ... but never like this. be remembered that only after si lence, comes that which is closest to expressing the inexpressable mu sic. One of the best ways to enjoy this concert was to close your eyes and just listen, because if you constantly watched the stage you became dis tracted by the contrasting •movements of the players and their instruments. Canadian violinist Peter Oundijian was like a tidal wave among choppy waters. The precise movements of the group’s three Japa nese members violinist Kikuei Guitarist Maglio burned up his instru ment, playing so fast that his fingers blurred. He picked a few riffs with his teeth and still kept true to the notes and timing. Cheap showmanship, maybe, but impressive nonetheless! The Balls also covered the Replace ments’ “Favorite Thing,” and ended Tokyo String Quartet Ikeda, violist Kazuhide Isomura and cellist Sadao Harada were more refined compared to Oundijian’s. But these movements became ir relevant as the music of Mozart filled Schwab Auditorium. The composi tion, sometimes called The Hunt, was brilliantly performed by the quartet, their sound being extremely clear and exact. The first and last movements of the piece, both played allegro, were playful in a style en tirely Mozart. By using expert vibrato, the quar tet made the third movement, their set with a Hendrix-inspired rocker called “Shade.” The group seemed stronger on the cover songs, but its music was good, strong rock’n’roll all the way. The Feelies featured songs from their recently released second album, The Good Earth, in their perfor- “Adagio,” sound like a sweet, melan choly ballad. The performers’ deli cate touch proved that music does not have to be played loud to be exciting. There is something about Soviet music that has haunting undertones, as exemplified by the second piece on the program, Dmitry Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 7 in F -sharp Minor, Op. 108. The composition brought out each instrument’s unique character istics instead of blending their sounds together, as in the Mozart piece. At first, some parts of this piece sounded harsh and grating, but then the instrument’s voices came togeth er, and the sheer endurance of the players was fascinating. Although this piece had three movements, there was no pause between sections. Keeping the emphasis on the senses, it is interesting to note that the last piece the quartet performed was written by a completely deaf Ludwig van Beethoven at the height of his musical career. Beethoven’s contrasting ideas and the compli cated variations on a theme in the “Grosse Fuge” and “Large Fugue,” indicated the master at work and gave the quartet a chance to display their independent playing. The musi cians’ give and take in the extreme dynamics of the piece created a swelling sense of line. Although more music followed, the end of the “Cavatina” section would have satisfied as a finale, as the adagio molto expressivo faded beau tifully into silence. mance Friday night. The five-mem ber band features Brenda Sauter on bass, Stan Demeski and Dave Weck erman on percussion, Bill Million on guitar and Glenn Mercer on guitar and lead vocals. The Feelies, in contrast with the jovial Balls, took up their instru ments wordlessly and maintained silence through most of their set. The group opened with a ballad-like, folky rock tune, “On the Roof,” followed by "The High Road.” Both songs were home-grown, American folkish rock, reminding me of wheat fields or some other kind of midwestern scene. "Original Love” was a more haunt ing, darkly melodic tune, which gave me an intensely creepy feeling. Here Mercer’s voice reminded me most strongly of Lou Reed’s. The group’s cover of the Beatles’ “She Said, She Said,” was a slick version of the original, with a ma chine-gun drum line and a little bit of psychedelia in the ending. By the fifth Feelies song, I knew I was in trouble. AIL around me the audience was having a great time, cheering and applauding enthusiasti cally. I, however, found myself won dering, “is that all there is?” The band members stood on stage woodenly, not smiling or recognizing the audience, not speaking at all. A trivial complaint, really; some groups don’t like to banter. Well, all right, but I still felt like some spark or energy was missing. The Feelies are good musicians, they play well and tightly. Their music is not in any way bad. But it is much the same thing again and again, and after a while I grew uninterested. Still, I tried to keep an open mind. The group’s “Two Rooms” was a haunting, introspective song, fol lowed by “Slipping into Something,” which changed tempo abruptly from lazy ballad to frenzied guitar mad ness. Again, Mercer’s Lou Reed qual The Daily Collegian Monday, Oct. 27, 1986 ities came out. Along with “Original Love,” these songs were the most interesting. The two percussionists provided a steady, in-synch beat throughout “Last Roundup,” which sounded like a twisted Western ballad. Demcski and Weckerman used a variety of instruments, including drums, tam bourine and a hollow wooden instru ment of some kind, providing interesting rhythm through the set. A song called “Crazy Rhythms” reminded me strangely of a song called “Summer In the City,” by the Lovin’ Spoonful. It was a roughed-up, ragged, helter-skelter kind of tune. The Feelies ended the set with that song, abandoned their instruments and escaped off-stage to the back balcony of the ballroom. The audi ence would not let the band get away that easily, however, and soon the Feelies were back, performing “I’m a Believer” and “Sedan Delivery.” Again the quintet vacated the stage, and again the audience de manded more. The Feelies returned a final time to play a medley of Velvet Underground tunes, “Run Run Run,” “European Son” and “What Goes On.” I don’t know what I was expecting that made me feel so much like the concert was a disappointment. Part of it was the homogeneity of much of the Feelies’ music, part of it was my perception that the group lacked en ergy and spirit. I overheard someone say that the group has often been compared, unfairly, to R.E.M., but one of the first things I thought was, “they remind me of R.E.M.” The Feelies arc not bad musicians, and they certainly were popular with the audience. The concert was well performed, but the music often seemed mediocre to me. All I can say is: different strokes for different folks.
