Del Fuegos provide exciting, fun rock
The Daily Tar HeelFriday, January 18, 19353
Whatever else rock V roll has meant
to people over the years, one of its most
important aspects has always been
conveying a sense of fun. The Del
Fuegos. a young band from Boston,
showed a large Cat's Cradle crowd
Wednesday that, even in 1985, technical
virtuosity and intellectualism pale in
comparison to good, fun rock V roll.
"We're from up north," bassist. Tom
Lloyd announced, holding up a bottle
of Molsson's, "just like this beer." With
a combination of stupid, campy humor,
an energetic stage show, and fun,
exciting rock 'n roll, the Del Fuegos
provided a joyous night out for their
new Cradle fans.
The Fuegos are basically a white R
& B band, in the sense that the Animals
and early Stones were white. R & B
bands. This means they display a real
love for American soul and country
roots but find that simple, straightfor
ward rock 'n' roll is the best medium
for their expression.

Boss gives 'no frills ' concert
By ELIZABETH HUTH
For people who camped put in the
cold night air of December during exam
week for Bruce Springsteen tickets, your
wait is over. "The Boss" is here. Some
should feel it was worth the price to
pay $20 to $90 for scalped tickets.
Springsteen's show at Charlotte
Coliseum Wednesday night was worth
whatever amount it took to get into the
Having no opening band, Spring
steen and The E Street Band had the
crowd on its feet from the very start
with "Born in the USA," "Badlands"
and "Darlington County."
Springsteen is a very personal and
emotional performer. It showed when
he was down on his knees playing the
harmonica in "Darkness on the Edge
of Town" or foot stomping and dancing
on top of the piano during "Promise
Bruce has an honest approach to
concerts. No frills, fancy flashing lights
or wild costumes. He wore tee shirt, blue
jean jacket, jeans and a bandana around
The E Street Band is as much a part
of the show as Springsteen. Clarence
Clemmons and Bruce Springsteen have
long been known as a dynamic duo.
Often Springsteen and Clemmons get
on the apron of the stage and play
saxophone and guitar while dancing
side by side.
Nils Logren, guitarist, dances and
bounces all over the stage. Logren
replaced "Miami" Steve Van Zandt,
who went solo with the Men Without
Women and Voice of America albums.
With the addition of Patti Scialfo,
the songs blended in harmony with the
combination of her voice and Spring
steen's husky voice.
Roy Bittan played an especially
haunting keyboard during "I'm on
Springsteen's songs range from a
rousing rock number to a stirring
He came back for the encore saying:
"I'm just warmed up! How about you?"
He then went on to play five more songs,
including "Born to Run" and "Twist and
Shout." The crowd screamed "Bruce,
Bruce, Bruce" after every song

Tar Heels") to the fact that Wednesday
was Giessmann's birthday. Lloyd made
constant pleas to the crowd for free beer
for Woody and the rest of the band.
Both Zaneses leapt around the stage
all night. Warren threw in Pete
Townshend-style splits-a-plenty, while
Dan twitched around like a cartoon
Elvis. Before "Nannin," Lloyd stepped
up to the microphone for an announce
ment. "This number here we consider
to be our 'beer dance' song," he
announced. "So grab a beer from the
bar and dance with it." The group
proceeded to grab beers and dance
around stage with them to Giessmann's
The only real t ault in the band 's music
was a certain sameness to the material.
There were some great covers, including
Wilson Pickett's "In the Midnight
Hour" and Brenda Lee's "Sweet
Nothings," but the band's originals
weren't up to that level of distinction.
As young as the band is, however,
improvement is certain to come.
The stage show was fantastic. The
Triangle hasn't had this much fun with
rock 'n' roll since Rick Rock's historic
shows two years ago.
To a chorus of "ooohs" in an
instrumental break in the song, Warren
Zanes took the microphone for a
Springsteen-style Christmas story. He
talked of loneliness at Christmas and
made a point about rock 'n' roll, but
the band kicked back in so hard at the
end that the moral to his story was lost.
No one seemed to mind.
Near the end of the show, the band
took an opportunity for choreographed
dancing during a drum solo. The
Zaneses and Lloyd danced back and
forth across the stage with all three
guitars in sync. At the end of the song,
the trio leapt in the air at the same time
for a hopelessly cliched and hilarious
ending to the song.
The band's humor was always campy
and usually downright stupid, but it
didn't matter. They were funny anyway.
Most of the funny stuff was obviously
tongue-in-cheek, but they never let on
that they knew. Everything was pres
ented honestly enough, and good rock
'n' roll always backed it up. Their
attitude was perfect.
