237 of the school’s 371 female professors
are slated to receive salary increases as
a result of the study. The increases -
paid for by a tuition increase that is
already in effect - will be implemented
in November. The salary increases will
be retroactive from July 1,2001.
UNC-CH Provost Robert Shelton said
he has been in contact with N.C. State offi
cials. He said the University is studying
the issue and researching its past efforts
before taking action. Shelton said there
are several factors contributing to the dis
parities. He said female faculty members
are often older when they receive their
degree and that they take more time off to
tend to family matters. Shelton also said
that in some fields faculty leaders tend to
be male and that by habit leadership is
passed on to other men.
But Shelton said the issue should be
studied to ensure that certain faculty
members are not being discriminated
against. “We need to make sure we are
rewarding people appropriately for
their contributions towards the mission
of the University.”

The committee voted 11-10 along
party lines for a $66.4 billion
Democratic bill that is vasdy different
from President Bush’s tax relief propos

last month by the GOP-led House.
Democrats said the measure was the
right medicine for the economy because
it would spur consumer spending and
would do more for laid-off workers than
Republican alternatives. But GOP sena
tors called it a partisan exercise filled
with unnecessary spending that has little
chance of becoming law.

Fin Fang Foom's East Coast
tour will bring it to play at
Go! Rehearsal Studios
in Chapel Hill on Sunday.
By Nick Parker
Michael Triplett, vocalist and gui
tarist for local band Fin Fang Foom,
stumbles out of his tour bus late one
morning, complaining of the cold and
tired of the road, but excited - his band
has finally broken new ground.
Fin Fang Foom has had a cult follow
ing of its eclectic sound -but the release
of the band’s first full length LP, Texture,
Structure and the Condition of Moods, rep
resents a major stepping stone on a path
it has been travelling for a long time.
The band boasts an interesting mix
between psychedelic distortion and tal
ented riffs and rhythms. The result is a
powerful blow that soothes while simul
taneously penetrating, blending in a
cool, electronic whirl.
Triplett has been with the group for
more than 10 years, watching both the
individual members and the band
mature. He said everyone is excited
because this represents something that
the group has wanted to do for a long
time. “This album is really important,
especially for us,” Triplett said. “Having
a record with all of our stuff is more
important than selling it.”
Their “stuff,” however it might be
described, is above all their own.
Sporting a distinctly aural sound, the
band stands in a unique field. Triplett,
Michael Glass and Edwin Sanchez all
gain their individual styles from per
sonal and peer inspiration, Triplett said.
“To be honest, I don’t think that any
one band or style has really influenced
us,” he said. “We are three people that
play rather awkwardly coming together
in a balanced medium.”
Though the blending of their instru
ments seems flawless, the production of
the album didn’t go entirely smoothly.
In addition to only having one short
week to pump out the 10 songs, Fin
Fang Foom encountered a few snags in
“At one point the main AC in the
recording studio broke so we were all
basically sitting around in our under
wear putting this thing together,” he
said. “I actually wanted to go out and
buy a bunch of Speedos for us all to
Along with the release of the album,
Fin Fang Foom is touring the entire east
coast, with a Sunday stop at Go!
Rehearsal Studios in Chapel Hill. The
band views this tour as more of a way to
meet new and interesting people while
trying to spread its sound.
In spite of all of the great experi
ences, the road has begun to wear upon
Triplett. Between driving for hours,
sleeping in the van and playing a show
every night, Triplett looks forward to
“This one guy’s house that we stayed
at in Columbus, Ohio, was disgusting. It
was so filthy that you had to wipe your
feet off on the way out." Triplett said.
“There were TV dinners and bowls of
cereal that had been there for months.
Needless to say I slept in the van again
that night... I miss my bed.”
With its first full length LP just
released and a month long, grueling
tour under way, the band has faced
many trials. But Triplett is still proud to
say that the entire experience has not
deterred the band’s goals or changed
the members in any negative way.
“I don’t really think that this has
changed anything,” Triplett said. “In
fact, I think it has brought us closer
together, made us even more focused.” 1
A long standing band that is finally
getting the attention it deserves, Fin
Fang Foom is still focused on the impor
“Our main goal is just to survive,”
Triplett said. “We want to just keep mak
