Rag team pleased with week of chaos
fter a week of mayhem in the Students’ Union and around Campus, the Rag team were yesterday ‘pleased’ with the results of their activities. Although not all the money collected has been counted, the week has been described as successful for the charities to benefit from the proceeds. Events included a traffic light disco, a beer-drinking competition, a ‘raid’ on Guildford town, a blind date, a slave auction, and the infamous ‘Hari-Hits’ John Dear watched some of the antics.....

he fun started at approximately 8.30pm in the bizarre dungeon popularly known as the Helyn Rose bar, as the lights came up to reveal a mock “Blind Date” set and the teletubby called Po. The audience were goaded into singing Blind Date style music and the first contestant was wheeled on. This contestant’s name was Duncan, I think, and he was studying for a degree in something highly technical. He now had the task of asking three girls (hidden behind a dangling (Turn to Page 2, col 3)

Rag Blind Date: an eyewitness account
(Continued from page 1) curtain) three obscene questions. On being asked what sort of car she would be, girl number one said she’d be a Rover, “Because you can relax in me!”. This was quite sexy. Given the chance, I might have chosen her. I’ve always liked Rovers and relaxation. As the evening lurched ever forward, it transpired that girl number two’s most embarrassing moment was when she had to walk about with a teletubby and a red ball. This came as no surprise. Personally, I’d be ashamed of walking around with red balls. The answer may have been a good one, but girl number three gave a more outrageous answer to the last question, claiming that during a fire drill she calmly slipped out wearing only a bra and French knickers. After a short break to buy more beer, the second round of Blind Date began. The question asker for this part of the contest was Barefact’s very own Sarah, who has the good fortune to study dietetics. The lads she had to choose from were a motley crew. Two of them were standard male students (drool-
ing perverts), but the third young man was.......Superman?! Actually no, it was editor Matt dressed up. You’ve never seen such a thin pair of legs in all your life. The cozzie looked nice though. Sarah’s trio of questions were as dark and foul as can be expected, covering such subjects as bondage and varieties of sexual violence. Matt responded to the questions brilliantly in a deep (possibly forced) voice. He stated that he enjoyed being whipped in a small cupboard by a dominatrix or something. But this wasn’t enough for Sarah. After Laa-Laa’s little rounding-up piece, she didn’t ask for our debonair and kinky Superman, opting instead for man number one. This concluded the Blind Date, but the evening’s madness was far from over as members of the audience were invited to a cracker eating competition. To win the competitors had to eat five dry Jacob’s crackers as quickly as possible. As they bit into the nasty dry crackers, members of the Rag committee dressed

as the teletubbies taunted the contestants with beakers of booze, saying things like, “Mmmmmm.. this is nice and wet”. It must have been hell for the cracker scoffers. Soon it was finished. A boy with a huge mouth won. Congrats! There then followed an erotic banana eating contest, and it was really, really erotic. I mean it. Very. Erotic. The first girl on stage to take part was a bit shy, and munched timidly on the ‘nana. Had she never done this sort of thing before? I shudder to think. Things got a bit more exotic and erotic as the second girl delicately bit off her banana’s skin with her teeth, and proceeded to suck tenderly....fantastic stuff, this.....at the banana. The last pair were the best performers. One girl and one boy (it might have been good ol’ Duncan) joined each other on stage. The bloke only took his trousers off to add to the eroticism! It was disgusting really. In the end, they chomped and slurped on each other’s bananas, much to my satisfaction. So, I can happily say that it was a night of classic entertainment. Oh, I forget who won the ‘nana thing. Sorry.

ou’d have seen the title heading by now and are probably wondering what kind of ‘creature’ is anime. Maybe it’s an alien from outer space or perhaps that large green blob moving around in your refrigerator which you could have sworn wasn’t there a few weeks ago. Fortunately, it’s neither.
Anime is Japanese animation , a very distinct style used by the Japanese and immediately recognizable to anyone with previous exposure to it. Large, child-like eyes, a shock of hair which looks messy and at times very spiky and the various hair colours used ranging throughout the visible spectrum are some of its’ more outstanding features. However anime is not a cartoon as most cartoons are associated with a children’s with a distinct Good against Evil kind of plot which ends happily ever after. While some anime is loads of trash, it might be fair to say that most anime are a more intelligent genre than most cartoons. Anime are usually derived from manga (the equivalent of a ‘comic book’ in
Japan but that’s another story) and producers target anime at all kinds of age groups from children up to adults (yes, there are adult anime). Anime doesn’t limit itself to a proven formula. Some anime ignored all sense of conventions and pre-conceived ideas. How many movies have you seen which have a vampire as one of the good guys? Furthermore, it also deals with ‘adult’ topics such as death which cartoons either ignore or make fun of in a realistic manner. Then there’s the Japanese fascination with advanced state-of-the-art technology in particular giant robots or more popularly known as mecha. Some of the more interesting anime deals with the technological and moral implications in which the distinction between machine and person, male and female, good and evil are blurred. Anime is also a good source of cultural reference such as Japanese and Asian mythology. Additionally,
some anime have strong, independent female characters, equipped with state-of-the-art power armour and enough weaponry to decimate the entire planet as the main role. Coming from a society that has women in traditional, submissive roles, you might wonder. Why? (maybe the Japanese likes aggressive women :) What has Surrey University in common with anime? There’s a Science Fiction and Anime Society in the university (yay!) and the small logo in the Entertainment’s Guide in Barefacts on the Saturday slot besides the UOS Club looks vaguely familiar. Wonder where it came from :) Anime scenes in the UK close to Surrey are The London Anime Club (13-14 Cornwall Terrace, London), an anime convention called Shinnenkai 98 (http://www.hpsound.demon.co.uk/ shinnenkai/) next year and a movie
called Memories is playing as part of the London Film Festival. For more info you can try BritAnimé, an online webzine called Animejin (http://www.animejin.demon.co.uk) and the Anime Web Turnpike (http://www.anipike.com).
Points to remember on gas safety
Samantha Birmingham Student Affairs Officer
as a precautionary back up to the certificate. These are available from DIY/ hardware shops - Robert Dyas in the High Street sells them for £5. Remember Carbon Monoxide is slightly lighter than air so it is best to put the detector at least 6 feet above floor level. Detectors DO NOT replace the need for a Corgi service and check. 3) Ensure that air vent/s in the cupboard or room where the boiler is located are open. A supply of air is essential for the safe operation of all gas appliances, do not be tempted to block up what appears to be a draughty air vent unless a Corgi Registered engineer has confirmed it is not needed.
The Tradgdy of Anne Brennan - A warning to us all
Condensation in the room where the gas appliance is installed. A yellow or orange lazy flame rather than a safe crisp blue. Sooting or staining on or around the appliance.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Symptoms are similar to those of viral infections and include drowsiness, weakness, headaches, nausea and pains in the chest. If anyone in your house experiences these whilst using a gas appliance, stop them using it until it has been checked. Exposure to relatively low levels of carbon dioxide emissions can cause brain damage or even death. When you inhale this gas into your body, it will try and take oxygen from your blood and eventually it will deprive the brain of oxygen. It’s colourless, odourless and has no taste. For these reasons, it’s called the silent killer, so don’t save on safety this winter, protect yourself and those you live with by following all the precautionary steps listed above.
nne Brennan was a student from Durham. She was studying English and had her whole life mapped out before her, but in 1995 she died of Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Anne was living in a student house and had very sensibly ensured that the gas appliances in her house had been checked. In essence, she had done everything that had been asked of her and no one could be blamed for thinking that she would have been safe. The problem is that the certificates that say the appliances in your home have the ‘all clear’ are only as good as the person who checks the equipment. In Anne Brennan’s house the defects in the gas systems had gone unnoticed and the unfortunate result was that following a very cold spell of weather when Anne put on the heating the carbon dioxide emissions killed her. One note of reassurance is that whilst Anne died, six other students survived. They survived for one reason and that is that they had bothered to invest in a gas spot (a small card that changes colour when carbon dioxide is detected). The other stu-
dents noticed the spot had changed colour in time to get out of the house. It wasn’t soon enough to save Anne’s life but there are still six students around today who wouldn’t have been here otherwise. Okay, so you are probably wondering what you should do to protect yourself. Here’s the check list: 1) Get the appliances in your home checked and serviced by CORGI registered installers. Gas appliances in rented accommodation must be checked every 12mths so demand to see a certificate from your landlord. By law you are entitled to see a current certificate on request. See below for an example of what certificates look like.
4) We recommend that you do not use rooms with gas appliances as bedrooms. Student occupied houses pose a special risk because, often, a ground floor room is used as a bedroom. If using a room with a gas appliance as a bedroom is unavoidable it is important that it is of a ‘room sealed type’ - there are special regulations about this, a Corgi engineer can advise you.

They were wrong, and seeStraw, published later this week, ing the tables turned makes a claims that there is ‘no realistic refreshing change.
To Whomever it may concern
This is with reference to the comments made by one of the customers who visited Pizza + a few days ago. I have been a regular customer in Pizza + since September 1996. I
have indeed been provided with good customer-staff treatment. The food that was provided to me was also up to my expectations. I have never had a bad experience with any of the staff being rude to me or provided with any bad food. As far as I know most of the students studying in the University have a very good reputation of Pizza + and their staff. It is indeed very upsetting for wouldn’t always feel like being nice after working for 12 hours.Also Pizza plus is a luxury that most Universities do not have. It is not supposed to be a five star restaurant, simply a cheap place for students to eat. If you do not like it, then go somewhere else. (3) Even if Alvin did upset you, being a retail student as you are, I am sure you will recognise that customer care is essential. But you will also know that sometimes we are not as polite as we could be to our customers. If Alvin was rude to you, it was for a reason.He is not intentionally rude. I have known Alvin for 12 months and have never had a reason to fault him or his Pizzas. I do not feel that he deserved the attacking letter you high volume has to be made by me and plus has to be put through the till. Imagine if you were 110% sober and you had to serve many customers (most of whom are drunk!!) Need I say any more! After having worked here for one year, together with my companions, I cope with two of the busiest nights of the week. True, I have never seen the outside of Pizza + on a Friday night. I wonder why I made that decision, after seeing some of you, the answer is evident...
me to read something that is not true and has never happened in my knowledge, in theBare Facts magazine. Please do not treat the comments written in the magazine as real and visit Pizza + and enjoy its delicious pizzas and staff treatment that is student-friendly. I eat at pizza + six days a week. Sanjeev Vijay Kumar sent to Barefacts. Isn’t it a bit cowardly to hide behind a letter when attacking someone??? Now that I have said my piece, I feel that you had better apologise for some of the statements made in your letter or take this matter up with Alvin personally. He is a just and fair man who rarely makes enemies and I know that he would much rather you talked to him than to a newspaper. You have angered a lot of people by attacking a person that you do not know. Next time consider you actions more carefully- An Apology is due!!!! Vicki Stabb 2nd Year Hotel and Catering Management
Hands off Pizza + 2...
Dear Simon Rose,
In response to ‘Pizza gets roasted’ last week; (1) I am an H and C student and I would not be able to run Pizza plus better than the manager Mr. Alvin Weighill, who works longer hours than you or I could ever comprehend. If you think you could run Pizza plus better, I can have a word with Alvin and I am sure it can be arranged and then we could all criticise you in the disgusting way that you have criticised Alvin. (2) Let’s get a few things straight, shall we? If you had to put up with some of the shit Alvin gets then you
Hazel Farm is no joke...
I have just read Hugh Janus’ letter in Bare Facts about the ‘happy’ students at Hazel Farm, and despite acknowledging the little gobshite as an obvious future comedy genius, I feel I must slag him off. ‘Hugh Janus’ (no, stop it, it’s too funny) obviously doesn’t live at Hazel Farm because if he did he would be aware that there is nothing to smile about here and that we are indeed miserable gits. If he did live at Hazel Farm he should, in fact, be writing to Bare Facts complaining about the piss poor attitude from certain elected individuals towards Hazel Farm residents and the nonexistent facilities out here. Let me give you a few examples: Firstly, the bus service is shite and the mini-bus service is even worse. In fact it is a joke and not a particularly funny one at that either. Why do we not have a bus taking us back at 2am on a Saturday night? Are we not supposed to go the Union or the UOS club or Chem. Soc. Pub Quiz or whatever happens to be on at the Union that night? Secondly, can somebody do something about our shop? It’s a bloody disgrace. It’s always empty, too expensive, there are holes in the floor, and if it was the Spar you’d go bananas about it. Thirdly, why can’t we have our own bar out here? Come 10pm, when we’ve all finished working for the night, we’d like a pint but sadly the Union is three miles away. Also we have no pool tables/coke machines and all of the countless other facilities happy cheery campus students have. Fourthly, all Hazel Farm students who go to Bo’s on a Wednesday night have to either walk home 3
miles or pay twelve pounds for a taxi, whereas campus students get a free mini bus ride home, whilst we walk in the rain through the dodgier parts of Guildford. Fifthly, we have no 24hr security out here, a few video cameras doted about here and there but no security. What would happen if a Hazel Farm student was attacked on the way back from Bo’s on a Wednesday? Or if one of our rooms gets burgled? Sixthly, and least importantly, we don’t get Bare Facts delivered out here unlike campus students (which is why is has taken so long for me to reply to Hugh’s great letter). Bare Facts is posted to placement students who want it yet you can’t be arsed to stick a load on to a minibus going to Hazel Farm. Seventhly, the Sabs and other Union Officials refuse to accept our existence at Hazel Farm because if they did we wouldn’t have these problems. So come on, let’s have some answers, we voted you all in and we deserve an improvement to the service Hazel Farm students are getting. A last word for Mr Janus, in future when writing letters please put your real name as then it is easier to insult you . May I also suggest that you think about what you write next time and stop trying to impress all your mates in Dickhead Soc. with your humour. Steeve French Editor’s note: Bare Facts will now be delivered to the Hazel Farm Common Room / Launderette every week. Your letter has also been passed on to President Bob who says that if you ring her up (259227) she’ll arrange for all the Sabbs to go to visit you, bringing a bottle, to discuss all these problems.
Hands off Pizza + 3...
After reading the article in Bare Facts, issue 916 (last week) concerning Pizza +, I would say that the quality of service may decline a little at times (namely late Friday and Saturday nights). This may be due to the fact that when the Union closes and everyone comes into Pizza Plus I have to make over 120 pizzas in the space of about an hour. This
We often have rude students coming into Pizza + and if you are rude to us then you cannot expect us to smile and be polite back, maybe if some of the students knew how to grow up, behave and show some respect we would not have these problems in the future. I am in the final year of H & C and I do not think I could do a better job of Pizza +, at least not with the constraints and conditions at the moment. Tiago Cecil Vasconcelos
Poor track surface to blame for trolley crashes...
by the entrance to the medical centre it came to an abrupt end. I was not held to an unrully reprimanded by the campus security staff but ended up ass over tit when the trolley span wildly out of control due to the bumpy tarmac pathway. The consequence of this was having to go to casualty the following day, being too inebriated to go that evening, and have stitches to my chin. In short, this sport should be made
In reply to the letter in last week’s edition of Bare Facts “getting trolleyed should be safer” I also took part in this sport last Saturday evening, after the football match (nice one Hoddle’s boys!). I was the only member taking part in the trolley dash and after cruising past several spectators on the pathway
safer by resurfacing the pathways around campus used in these dashes, held by many on Friday and Saturday nights. I hope, along with many of the other sportsmen involved in this extreme sport, some action will be taken as soon as possible. Anyone interested in helping form what would be the first society for trolley dashing in Britain please reply through Bare Facts to TrolSoc. Lyall Burgess
Car Parking Problems...
I would like to complain about the lack of parking on campus that seems to be available this term. Having closed the Union Hill carpark, the University has made no extra provision for parking the spill over which has now moved to the other car-parks. Even the space in
front of the Austin Pearce Building is only open occasionally and then is closed and chained off at 6 o’clock. With more students living off site especially in their Final years, being able to park on or near the campus is essential. Getting onto campus after 10 am means you spend 20 minutes driving around before finding a place. Closing off Union Hill for contractors only (all 10
cars/vans maximum) has meant this space has been unused for the past seven weeks. I would be interested to know where the University think that students and staff alike are expected to park? Surely money from Parking Permits should be directed towards parking? Jeff Blackham

The easiest job in the world
ell, it’s true isn’t it? You have a building full of people all desperate to have a good time. You have a vast collection of your favourite Vinyl and CDs that you know everybody likes. You pick out a selection of the top ten tunes of the year, play them one after another and watch the dancefloor go mad. You then pick up your big fat cheque and the end of the night and go off into the sunset with the DJ groupie of your choice. Well, unfortunately working as a Disc Jockey is a bit more tricky. I don’t intend to sell it as the most difficult job in the world, but I intend to try and explain what the everyday DJ has to consider. Contrary to popular belief you do need some degree of skill. Whether you’re playing classics from the 60’s and 70’s, Pop from the 80’s, or Indie and that repetitive dance type stuff from the 90’s, you need skill. Why? Well, DJing is not just playing one song after another, there is a knack. When I first began to DJ, putting tapes together for me and my friends, I always started with a really banging tune, my reason being if you start with a ‘top tune’ it will get people enjoying themselves from the start. Wrong. Creating a set is like making love (or so I’m told). You start with a bit of foreplay, whip
them up into near ecstasy and then move in for the kill only then to bring them back down again after a couple of hours. The amount of times you do this in a night depends upon how much time and energy you have (I personally like to do it about three times a night). The worst thing you can do as a DJ is peak too early and play all your major tunes when no one is interested in getting on the dancefoor. Prodigy at 8.30pm on a FNO will not be good use of a crowd-pleaser. Other skills include actually playing records, dance music should be mixed in order to blend one song into another. The idea of adjusting the speed of one song to match another using a series of beats is, quite frankly, a small sliver of your auntie’s marble cake. However, in reality, it is dead tricky (ask Pete Tong). And, in my opinion, to build up a decent atmosphere using any other genre of music is just as difficult. So, this should give you an idea as to how most DJs plan their set. It all sounds so simple. Well, if there was only one type of music THEN it would be simple. But no, these damn money grabbing bands have to play different styles, don’t they? You have Swing, Soul, Rap, Jungle,
Hip-Hop, Trash, Indie, Rock, Pop, Commercial Dance, Garage, Trance, Acid Jazz, European, Asian, and even Classical for the Matt Pannells of this world. At an environment such as our Union on a Friday night, all these different styles have a following. The requests that Chris Haslam and Andy James receive do vary. You always have the stilton of cheese such as the Spice Girls, but you can get asked for Wham and then Josh Wink in successive requests. Playing one of these songs will get a few on the dancefloor only for them
to go whizzing off to the loo when the other is played afterwards. Yet most DJ’s are accommodating. Recently Leroy Wilson at a SHAG got asked for anything Greek. He said “go and get it and I’ll play it.” So she did and he played it, and the 50 or so partying Greeks loved it. The other 600-odd people didn’t. It is impossible to please everybody all of the time. The DJ’s job is to ensure that as many of the people out there have as much of a good time as they can and unfortunately this is all that is humanly possible until they create a style of music
that gets everybody’s juices running. So, to all those punters out there, please remember this when you ask a DJ to play the theme tune to Grange Hill at an FNO. It may just clear the dancefloor the DJ has spent the last two hours trying to fill. (And for those budding DJs out there I recommend that you get practising and get involved with the smaller gigs on campus, such as No Wave and UoS. You never know where it may lead......)
NATALIE IMBRUGLIA - Torn (RCA) Not taking the road of some ex soap stars, Natalie shows maturity in her style of music. This is shown by her writing input on some of the songs and she actually can sing. This is still a pop song though, good as long as you know what you are buying. 7/10 G.D. TRAVIS - Happy (Indipendiente) A catchy tune, but not the most original of lyrics. “I’m So Happy” is the basis of most of the song. The song ‘When I’m Feeling Blue (Days Of the Week)’ is actually much better than the title track. 7/10 G.D. DEPECHE MODE - Useless (Mute) “It’s about time” Depeche Mode found a new song to fuck about with. Not that I dislike the song, but three versions of it on the same CD is a bit excessive. Admittedly the third version is almost unrecognisable, meaning that it is crap, but when all’s said and done the original ‘Useless’ is pretty good. 7/10 E.C. 3 COLOURS RED - This Is My Hollywood (Creation) Re-recorded version of their Fierce Panda debut single, only without the bite of the original, nevertheless a good song. As is the b-side demo of ‘Sunny In England’ which would have been a better single. 6/10 R.W. SCOTT GARCIA feat. MC STYLES - A London Thing (Connected) Sounds like something that will be played on “Cool FM” or some other pirate radio station. A nice dancey/garage bassy tune with some of the worse “singing” on record. 6/10 F.F. DIMITRI FROM PARIS - Sacre Francais! (Yellow Stereo) A very interesting mix of wit, wisdom and turntable trickery with a little touch of Afro-Caribbean sound. This fresh-faced DJ Dimitri has a way with his maddening mix of eccentric dance styles. 6/10 D.A. OMAR - Golden Brown (RCA) Vocal delivery and background tunes amazing. Perhaps what fails this single is probably the fact its been reworked by one too many people. A good tune to listen to when your in a foul mood or when wake up on the wrong side of bed. 6/10 I.U. THE CURE - The Wrong Number (Fiction) Horrible and heartbreaking. The Cure have employed Mark Plati to massacre their latest offering, stringing Robert over Erasure to the worst possible ends. Salvaged only by the remixes offered by R. Smith himself, which are reassuring, pleasant and show that the songwriting is still with the Cure and that Wrong Number is actually a good song, underneath it all. The mixes earn 7/10, but for track one 2/10 H.B. BUSH – Bonedriven (Interscope) This is the 3rd single to be taken from their album ‘Razorblade Suitcase’, which has the hip sizzle of something on the cutting edge. The band constructed an impressive slash-andburn sound dynamics with loud, stormy, riff-roaring aggression, and anguished lyrics about hellish relationships and suicidal tendencies – TWANGG! 9/10 D.A.

SINGLE OF THE WEEK
FAMOUS TIMES - The Blue Man (Heavenly) I really love this single. It sounds really great on the whole and the tribute to Roy Orbison (Track 2 ‘The Big O’). I would recommend this to anyone for either easy listening or ‘concentrating’ work music. 10/10 G.T. FORCE AND STYLES - Paradise and Dreams (Diverse) If you like hardcore, this one’s for you. This has been caned everywhere by all of the DJs. If you haven’t heard it, it’s the most gorgeous, happy dance tune ever released. The advantage with this single is the six mixes available. There is even a house mix, a trip hop mix, and others. The bass line is typical of Force and Styles, and can also be heard on tunes like “Shining Down”, it always gets the crowd going. Need I say more? 9/10 M.B. THE JELLYS - Jelly Belly EP (Proud + Prejudiced) Bright and cheery punk edged power pop with a sense of humour. Now that Green Day have turned more serious the door for The Jellys is wide open. 8/10 R.W. THE HITCHERS - Big Mug (Murgarroid) The Hitchers are a new and rising 4piece from Ireland. Their new single ‘Big Mug’ is a lovely, mellow, acoustic number. It’s one of those songs that the more you listen to it, the more you will grow to love it. 8/10 N.W. THE CHARLATANS - Tellin’ Stories (Beggars Banquet) In a bizarre break from tradition, this Charlatan song actually has easy to understand lyrics. A nice relaxing tune which reveals a kinder gentler Charlatans. 8/10 F.F. LIL’ LOUIS AND THE PARTY Clap Your Hands (Go! Beat) This is an interesting single from Lil’ Louis. With six mixes allowing the listener a good cross-section of dance styles, he covers all the bases. This is a welcome return after his absence, although some may have heard ‘Freedom’ under the name Black Magic. If you like R & B or house this is both. Pick it up and enjoy. 7/10 M.B. LABRADFORD/STARS OF THE LID - The Kahanek Incident Vol.3 (Trance Syndicate) This is ambient music to the point of almost not existing, built up mainly of guitars but with loads of swirling, wooshy noises too, and it’s quite nice. Music specifically designed for sketchy Sunday afternoons, and believe me in that situation it’s a treat. 7/10 A.M.
THE CRABS – What Were Flames Now Smolder (K) Initially, I had low expectation when I picked up this CD knowing that their debut album ‘Jackpot’ was rather fluky and monotonous. Surprisingly, this third full length release by The Crab has something more to offer. The group tries to meld a kind of soft-grunge electric sound and coffeehouse-oncampus folk guitar with varying effect. The vocalist, Lisa has a very beautiful, dynamic voice, but the problem is that she buries it underneath musical layers in the album. If she could learn to rely on sparse instrument and more upon her vocals, then she will improve by leaps and bound. A strange quirk witnessed throughout the album is that most of the songs need to get going for a while before they get really good. ‘Confess’ has a really great, simple beat with pretty good lyrics. This album is a solid effort. 9/10 D.A. TONY DE VIT - Live in Tokyo (Global Underground) An album of utmost quality from the Mixmaster, a collection of underground tunes, most of which I hadn’t heard of before. There are some banging tunes here that make you want to dance, and also a number of interesting new mixes of tunes you know. ‘Feel My Love’ (TDV) and Mark NRG’s ‘Don’t Stop’ are both included in what has been, for me, one of Tony’s more memorable mixes. Don’t let the absence of known tunes put you off, though, as Tony rinses out some blinders, including ‘What Would You Like To Hear’ (Die Witness), which tears through your speakers at an alarming rate. This isn’t your normal, run-of-the mill house selection. This is recorded live, and the speed of the music shows. If you like house but have never been out to a “proper” club then buy this and sample the music for yourself. If you have, this is right up your street. Banging house that relentlessly pounds your speakers for close to 100 mins. You won’t be displeased! 9/10 M.B. YVETTE MICHELE - My Dream (RCA) This is the debut album of a rhythm and blues singer. She was a street performer so her style is well honed and very effective. This whole album is a gorgeous example of great rhythm and blues music. It is a must for anyone who is a fan of this style. I love this CD. It is perfect for either listening to generally or a dance music. The track called ‘Everyday And Everynight’ is particularly beautiful, with clear lyrics. Definitely worth listening to. The only bits that aren’t so good are where she has someone DJing the record, but I can put up with that as the material is of such a high standard. 9/10 G.T. V/A- House Of America. (EMI). ‘House Of America’, a soundtrack which combines some of the best indie, dance and sixties elements that an album possibly could without actually forgetting that it’s a soundtrack. The film is set in a small town in south Wales, which would explain the “distinctly Welsh flavour”, although the only hint of this, I found personally was Tom Jones’s “Green green grass of home”. Other contributions, as the soundtrack supposedly winds it’s way through the film, include Teenage Fanclub, Supergrass, The Prodigy and ‘Motorcycle Emptiness’ by the Manic Street Preachers, which is well worth the CD on it’s own. If this album is anything to go by, ‘House Of America’ should be one hell of a film. 8/10 E.C. V/A - Face OST (Island Studios) It’s good to see great soundtracks accompanying the brilliant surge of British films which are being released at the moment. This soundtrack comprises a diverse range of artists and styles, from Fluke to Paul Weller. The
ALBUM OF THE WEEK INSANE CLOWN POSSE - The Great Milenko (Island) Stephen King’s IT meets Cypress Hill, such are the Marylin Mansons of the rap scene, complete with biblical wrnings of the coming of the fourth joker of evil; the Great Milenko and a general obsession with sinister and evils acts. Some may be offended by the dark humour “you know for 13 your sister’s got big tits” or the graphic details of killing, “I’ll take your face off and wipe my ass with it”, the underlying aggression, or the anti middle-America messages. Detroit’s answer to Loaded is intelligent if brash. The clown symbolism reoccurs on most tracks. Often melodic and with extensive verbal sampling and sketches the CD is a polished offering with guests Alice Cooper, Slash and Steve Jones, this is coherent, entertaining and accessible. 9/10 H.B.
highlights of this album are the tracks fom Gene, The Longpigs and The Clash. My only criticism is “Where are Space?”. The song ‘Kill Me’, which was prominent in the film doesn’t feature in the soundtrack. Although not as good as ‘Trainspotting’, this is one of the best soundtracks I have heard this year. You have to go out and buy it. 8/10 G.D. 4.0 - 4.0 (A+M) With their album being recently released, these foursome are sure to be a big hit....(no coincidence that it’s just in time for Christmas). For some time I wondered where I had heard this style before. Soulfully patient, nonetheless already-explored songs seem to take on a higher level of meaning. Not only can they sing, but they’re going commercial too! Perri Ried is definitely going to kick start these guys like he did with Tony Rich and TLC. There is one thing I’d like to say though....they seem too much like Take That from a new angle. Watch this quartet sour in the charts. 8/10 I.U. ARKARNA - Fresh Meat (WEA) This is an inspiring indie-dance debut album by North-London based foursome Arkarna. Ollie (vocals), James and Lalo (guitar) set about writing the songs, blending the most precise groove technology with a vivacious pop sensibility that screamed out “classic” without a hint of pretension. They’d namecheck classic renegades like the Beastie Boys, Prince or The Prodigy, but the songs paid heed to no one. 1997 saw them open for business proper. Their debut single ‘House On Fire’ scaled the high walls of the Top 40 with ease and place themselves alongside The Chemical Brothers and The Orb. On the whole, it’s cool and impressive. 7/10 D.A V/A - Shooting Fish OST (EMI) An interesting mixed bag of stuff, on the one hand you have the indie / hard rock of Space, Symposium and Strangelove (the three s’s) and on the other you have the soulful melody of Jackie De Shannon and Dave McAlmont. There’s even a bit of techno thrown in for good measure. Things start off with Space’s Pulp Fiction style ballad ‘Me & You Vs The World’, which is a great addition to any compilation and has a few well known songs like Silver Sun’s ‘Golden Skin’. The big problem with it is that there is very little new material. So most fans will already have the songs. 7/10 F.F MICK HARVEY- Pink Elephants (Mute) And then Mick Harvey of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, peered through the looking glass and saw deep into the magical, mystical world of Serge Gainsbourg land for the second time, and thought “bloody hell, there’s another lot of good songs I could translate into English for the benefit of the masses”. So he did and came up with yet another excellent album of the frisky, Frenchman’s finest songs. Standout tracks on the album include the orchestral ‘Pink Elephants’, a highly comical version of ‘Je T’aime....Moi Non Plus’ (I Love You.... Nor Do I), as sung by band friends Nick Cave and Anita Lane, which if you turned up really loud would really worry your flat-mates, and Serge/ Mick’s highly moralistic anti-drugs song of ‘To All The Lucky Kids’. 7/10 D.N.
CHICANE - Far From The Maddening Crowds (Xtravaganza) The album title describes the album. There aren’t many instances in which I can say this, but the wonderful ambient mixes of well known tunes are welcome, and this album is well and truly chilled. There is still the occasional slightly upbeat mix, but this doesn’t break the ambient dub. Containing the wellknown singles ‘Offshore’, ‘Sunstroke’, and ‘Red Skies’, ‘Far From The Maddening Crowds’ takes you on a journey to Ibiza, but not to the hustle and bustle of the Club scene or central San Antonio, but to deserted shore-lines, the Cafe Del Mar and 6am sunrises. If you haven’t been to Ibiza, then buy this album and feel the after-club vibe, the chill-out tunes and the almost sleepy atmosphere. When looking at the track titles, you would be easily misled into thinking that this is an upbeat album. From ‘Early’ through to ‘Already There’ until ‘The Drive Home’, each describes its own part of the big picture and takes on its own journey. This album would be a welcome addition to the morning after selection. Absolutely gorgeous. 9/10 M.B.

Some Kind Of Interview
Donna McPhail at Guildford Civic Hall 15/10/97
onna McPhail is most famous for being a presenter of The Sunday Show, and for slightly dodgy radio adverts for a certain women’s hygiene product. The Civic Hall was the latest venue for her national, 20+ show tour. The £10 1 hour show was basically Donna standing on the stage doing
Andrew Thomas & James Buller
what lots of “alternative” comedians do, swear and tell knob jokes! The audience were regaled with insights into her life: tales of drunken nights out, previous tours, drugs and her Tamagotchi – (one and the same really) and other “crazy”
things that have happened to her. Donnas’ style reminds you of a crazy drunk woman you might meet at the bar who decides to crudely tell you her life story. It’s fun for a while but in places you have just heard it all before. A welcome distraction but not necessarily worth the ticket price.
ecil, the Liverpudlian rock band have just finished touring with Mansun to promote their current single, ‘Hostage In A Frock’ and to show a wider audience their new more melodic but no less intense side. This was supposed to be a full interview with Cecil, however thanks to ridiculous security at The Astoria, it ends up being more of a press conference on the venue balcony as a band soundchecked. Not ideal. Cecil vocalist Ste and guitarist Ant are ready to answer some questions between the drum tests. How is this tour with Mansun progressing? Ste - “Excellent. It is by far the best tour we’ve done. The people who are coming for Mansun are giving us a chance. They are actually listening to
our music as we play. Which is nice.” The current single ‘Hostage In a Frock’ and its predecessor ‘Red Wine At Dead Time’ show something of a direction change for Cecil. Ste - “It has been more of a natural progression, we’re getting better.” Ant - “The album has a lot of different styles. The single is possibly the heaviest thing on it.” The video for ‘Hostage In A Frock’ features the band walking through the East End, in dresses performing a boyband type dance routine. The video looks good, but was it fun to make? Ant - “It got a bit heavy.” Ste - “Big East End Cockney wide boys wanted to kick the fuck out of us.” At this point the venue PA comes on and the interview is called off...
Divas Dance Company Presents......
he campusdance performance season continues next week with the dance/theatre company “Divas”. They are performing their work “Divagate” which, according to their publicity, is a multi-layered feast of vision, sound and movement energies. “Divagate” brings together everything you would want to see in a collaboration of this kind. It fuses operatic arias with a punkpop soundtrack accompanies by an award winning film featuring some
of Britain’s leading performers and choreographers. Any one into dance, music, theatre and/or visual arts, this should be right up your street. If you missed Rosemary Butcher’s performance this is the opportunity to unbolt your copybook to speak. “Divas” is dance at its most imaginative (another gem from their publicity material) and, if rumours from the dance grapevine are anything to go by, they are considered quite controversial and ‘close to the
mark’. In other words, if you fancy a bit of swearing and probably some nudity thrown in, this is the work for you...... boys. For tickets call the box office on 01483 259905 or alternatively try your luck on the door. The performance starts at 8pm on 29th October in the PATS studio theatre. Philippa Newis

The good news is, you can improve your chances considerably by doing just two things. First of all, it is essential that you try to sell yourself. To do this properly you have to do a bit of homework. Start by checking out the qualities the job demands, and then decide which of these you think you have. If you haven’t got any of them you may be considering the wrong job! The next step is to think about things you’ve done which could provide ammunition for your answers. Don’t rule out anything at this stage.
Of course, if you’ve had a year out you’d probably want to say a lot about that instead. But you would still benefit by applying the same kind of analysis. The trick is to try to relate what you have done to the likely requirements of the job. Most jobs are described in terms of tasks such as organising, experimenting, managing, writing, analysing and problem-solving. Russ Clark Employers want to know Careers Service whether you can do the things the job demands. The application form is simply a means of finding this out.
The second thing you need to concentrate on is making your form look attractive. If it shows you’ve taken care over it, the employer will interpret that to mean you really want to work for them. I reckon it takes about 3 hours to do the job properly. The first hour should be spent reading, thinking and planning. The second should be spent working out your answers to the more open-ended questions in rough. The third you’d spend writing it out neatly. Take heart though, the first form which you complete is usually the worst and you can save quite a bit of time if you keep a copy and modify your answers for the ones that follow.

designed especially for those nations who are crap at everything else- Scotland’s Stephen Hendry, and.....nope Wales still loses out! The baseball season is drawing to and end (hopefully to make way for the Emmanuelle films on channel 5) and Britain has the new ladies squash world champion.
On the University front, however, congratulations to the football club for all six teams winning on Saturday; to the rugby teams and netball for winning (and submitting articles); and to all the other teams who competed in BUSA and in their own leagues on Saturday. Keep the articles coming so my column can get shorter still!
CONKER SOC. IN AMAZING VICTORY!
fter the usual confusion, mini buses missing, the chairman arriving late etc. We finally set off for our weekend away in Snowdonia. A quick stop was made in Banbury - or would have been had Dave, the chairman, not been stuffing his face with excessive amounts of chicken nuggets. Then tragedy struck, as an R registration Mini Cooper decided to take it’s chances and overtake the bus. It clipped the wheel arch, causing minimum damage to the bus, but sending itself hurtling into the crash barrier. Luckily we were all unhurt and left the police to deal with it. Having made it to the campsite intact, events took a turn for the worse. Girls in the back began throwing up due to Andy’s driving, Dave “The Man” on the bus roof woke up the whole campsite by throwing tent poles everywhere and the warden’s wife came out in slippers, not best pleased, to warn us that if there was any more noise we’d be thrown off. On Saturday of course it rained, however a certain member though rain wasn’t good enough and decided we should take a dip in the river! (Trust a canoeist). It was noted that Dave, currently single, disappeared into the sheep pen to work off some frustration! Better luck there then mate? The weather caused much
slipping and sliding, especially for those members who ran, tripped and landed arse over heels in the wet, (no need to name anyone anymore). Having lost the footpath we resorted to climbing the stone walls and couldn’t help thinking this was more outdoor climbing than the mountaineering club ever does (Hrrmm). Retiring that evening to the local, we were entertained by some young chaps singing Country and Western. Not to be outdone Dave thought he’d impress the local women with his dancing....?! Sunday dawned bright and sunny and after a morning hike we packed up to go home. However not before a very sexy Welsh woolly hat was purchased for the chairman. Being the helpful souls that they are before leaving Andy and Dave decided to help take the tents down - unfortunately we girls were getting changed in it at the time! Revenge was sought and suffice to say the battle will continue.... We are the Hiking Club! Meeting every Tuesday lunch time at 1 pm in TB12B. Next trip is to the Peak District on 31st October, Week 8 For further info contact Dave on 01483 576981
UNIVERSITY OF Conker Soc Officer withSURREY CONKER out portfolio SOC. 12 after we had intimidated our MILFORD OCTOGE- 2.15pmbut viscous opponents with a elderly NARIANS CONKER rendition of our theme tune ‘Smack My Conker Up’ featuring Bugsy on CLUB 6
es, believe it or not Surrey now has a society dedicated to the smashing together of two nuts on a shoelace! Conkers. Last Wednesday we all travelled out to Milford for a warm up match against the highly rated Milford Octogenarians Conker Club, who boast two former county champions and an ex national champion amongst their players. Us, well we’ve been formed for about three weeks, and contain some people who hadn’t even played a competitive match before but we knew we could rise to the occasion. We matched their team of six (just) after Greedy said he could play as his nigglesome knee injury had healed up.. The match started promptly at
kazoo. Needless to say their colostomy bags filled in seconds. We started well with Shagger and Spud both winning both their matches easily earning two points each. Milford gained momentum, however, when 1942 All England Champion ‘Gnasher’ McFiggarty stepped on the grass, a lesson was given to us that we will never forget, he may be 86 but he sure is a mean conker player. Captain Bugsy was later seen swapping techniques with the great man. At half time, following a brilliant stampsy by Greedy we led 8-2 and Lady Luck was smiling on us, until a magnificent Milford fightback that is. The second half saw Captain Bugsy lose again this time to Alf Bates, who used his famous Gibbering
Gerbil move to devastating effect, as we prepared for the doubles Greedy and Goofy knew what they had to do, the scores stood close at 8-6, so the oven baked with vinegar conkers were taken out of the bag. No chances could be taken if Milford won the doubles, they won the match!! Greedy and Goofy did the job well, these two are sure favourites for the All England Conker Doubles later on in the year. Put your money on them now. After the match, naturally we all traipsed our weary feet back to the day room for a few beers, a saucy dancing contest and a quick game of Bingo (Bingo Soc. anyone?) . Oh and Shagger pulled a stunna (Doris, 87, retired nurse). If you can play conkers, cook pizzas, fight, burp, arm wrestle, shout, swear and cause general havoc in day centres then Conker Soc. is for you! Don’t contact us through the pigeon holes because we haven’t got one yet but we can be found in Chancellors on Tuesday Nights and the Kings Head on other nights.
Netball players dont down pints
hen I woke on Wednesday morning and looked out the window, the sight that greeted me was not a good one: torrential rain was not really the ideal weather in which to play our first BUSA netball match of 1997, but hey we’re netball players, we’re hard, we don’t care (much)!!!!!!. Thankfully as we weaved our way around the streets of Ealing looking for the Thames Valley campus, the sun came out and out spirits brightened. We dropped the fencing team off where they should be ( no comment!!) and set about tracking down the opposition. The
A Degree and a Black Belt
ind of early into the academic career to be thinking about what you are going to be doing at the end of four years, but by the time you graduate Judo offers you the chance to have a black belt which will impress the socks off future employers. Here’s the pitch. Judo is the only martial art that is recognised by the Olympic movement. Why? Because all the other martial sports are so fractious that they don’t meet the standard. What this means is that during a year out,
match began and very quickly three things became evident: 1) We had this game in the bag 2) One of the umpires had trouble working out how to blow a whistle, never mind keeping the score and knowing the rules and 3) The opposition’s Goalkeeper wanted to flatten every member of our team and the umpire!! ( For those of you that don’t know, this is not usual behaviour on a netball court!!) When we came off at half time, thanks to the fantastic shooting of both Helen and CJ the score was
wherever you are, you will find a Judo club that teaches Judo exactly the same as the way it is taught at Surrey because there is only one way to do Judo. Judo is for men and women, the big and the small, the athletic and the not so. All you do need to be is willing to try something different and sure that you want to get fit and get a job. After all, who would turn down a Judo black belt? Come and see us at Campusport on Wednesday 2:00-4:00, Sunday 3:30-5:00
27-16, it was at this point we set a target of a score of 50. Thankfully due to great teamwork both in attack and defence the final score was 54-27. Returning to the Union that night, we nominated CJ, one of our two fresher players (Yes, freshers on the first team - we’re not all like the football club!!), player of the match, and even though “Netball players don’t down pints” (our response to not having a boat race team), she very skillfully downed a Chumbawonga(?) and now can’t remember Bojanglez!!!. A throughly good day was had by allbring on Reading!!

Well Call it a Draw
nce again the usual unholy forces conspired against the PaintBall Soc and once again we overcame them! Against all the odds, the morning of Saturday 11th saw a small, elite band gather outside Senate House raring for the chance to project large quantities of paint at each other. There they waited for Dave to turn up, late as usual [Oi! I was getting petrol! – Dave] who eventually rolled up in his car. The fun could now begin, or at least that was the plan. Despite a distinct lack of minibus driver, we all eventually set off, crammed into assorted cars. It had looked like being a fine, brisk morning – the birds sang, and a crisp chill ran through the air [Thank you Mr. Literary – Dave]. Then about half way to the PowerBall site in Andover, the heavens opened and great buckets of the wet stuff descended upon us. Marvellous. Bad navigation notwithstanding, we eventually arrived at the site, and disembarked an hour or two late, much to the chagrin of the marshals and the other party we were due to share the field with that day. And so the scene was set for a day of epic conflict [Sliding about in the mud, more like – Phil]. Shadows of “Platoon” were noticed as we sat through the short safety briefing, split into blue and yellow teams, were issued with arms for those not already so equipped and squelched onto the field of play. The day’s games were broken down roughly as follows: First two “Capture the Flag” games, with each team playing once from either of the two starting bases. Next up were a pair of “Storm the Fort” scenarios, again once defending and once attacking for each

team. These were followed by a variant of “Capture the Flag” in which five flags were spread about the field, and the team capturing the greatest number at the end of the game being the winner. A break for lunch later, and it was back to a simple pair of “Capture the Flag” games to work off the sausages and beans. Next came the Fort once more for another set of attack and defend, this time crossed with capture the flag – one team’s flag being inside the fort and the other outside. The day was rounded off with a small free-for-all style game for all of those with paint left to burn. No kills in the last game, just blast away until you’re out of ammo. After all, you can’t take it
with you… The victory roll read with a twogame win for the Yellow team, mostly garnered due to the fact that they never lost a game at the Fort [Yay! – Phil / Grr! – Dave]. In fact, the yellow team managed to break the site’s all-time Storm the Fort speed record by thirty seconds, with a time just over five minutes. The margin would have been even greater, if only we had known that we had to take the flag back to base as well as blowing the Fort up! All in all, a thoroughly fun-filled day was had by all, and despite the occasional unfortunately-placed shot, [Stop wingeing Phil! – Dave] everyone agreed that another day should soon be arranged. We fully intend to do so, as soon as Dave gets off his arse, [Oi! – Dave] so keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for details here in Bare Facts, on GCR and posters at a lecture theatre near you soon!

BALLROOM DANCE MEETING

CAMPUSDANCE LATINO EVENING WHAT A SCREAM !!!
The Latin American evening held at the Varsity Centre last Friday was a fantastic success. We were packed to the brim with hot, sweaty bodies moving in unison to the latino beats provided by Carlos Paz from Bar Mambo and Ents. The evening kicked off with a salsa lesson taught by Carlos, followed by a Mexican dinner and then a latino disco where everyone put into practice all those rhythms and movements learnt in the early part of the evening. The dance floor was packed all night and I haven’t seen it so full since the time when the male and female rugby teams had fixtures at home on the same day! I think it may have had a lot to do with the fact that tequila was £1.00 a shot all night and as you can imagine there were a few casualties! If you arrived at the door on the night and expected to buy a ticket then you would have been sorely disappointed. I apologise but the few tickets we kept back to sell on the door had gone by 7.00 p.m. We were turning people away all evening. Our next Latin American evening is on Friday 28th November and we shall be learning Latin American Jive (that’s Siroc to you and me but I can’t call it that as it is a registered trade name!) Tickets are available at the Sports Centre - please book early to avoid disappointment. We can guarantee you another wild evening.
Please note that the first meeting concerning starting the Ballroom Dance Society has been POSTPONED until Wednesday 5th November at 7.30 p.m. in the University Hall (not on 29th
October as mentioned last week). The meeting will take the form of a “come and try it” workshop and a chance to talk about reconstituting the Society, future functions, courses and maybe even competitions!
INTERDEPARTMENTAL BALL ROOM DANCING - BEGINS 7TH NOVEMBER

A number of students were disappointed to find that the Tuesday evening Step Class was full and yet could not make the Thursday lunch time slot - so we are endeavouring to start a new 5 week course on Fridays 5.30 - 6.30 p.m. at the Sports Centre. Beginning on FRIDAY 7TH NOVEMBER Campusport & Sports & Classes Card holders are offered this at the special price of £5 (or £7.50 for students without membership cards). At least 20 people are needed to make this new course viable so please register and pay in advance BY 5TH NOVEMBER at the latest to secure a place and to ensure that we can employ Joanna!! Note: No Step Aerobics on Thursdays - Transfer to another session
NEW GOLF BEGINNERS COURSE
Starts TUESDAY 11TH NOVEMBER 6.00 - 7.00 p.m. at the Sports Centre for 5 weeks. The course is run by Golf Professionals and takes place in our indoor nets. A few places are still available for the new course starting from 11th November - Students £7.50.

W.U.S.R.F.C. v St. Marys
With rain in our faces we stood in pack formation ready to receive the ball, knowing that we had something that they didn’t: CAZZA telling us that we had the DESIRE, COMMITMENT and ENTHUSIASM to play a good game of rugby and win. The first half began with them scoring a penalty try, caused by our captain Mim who held one of their players back- we didn’t grumble as she was the only one fast enough to catch their player and her immediate thought was F*#+ off: that ball’s MINE!! As they converted, we realised we could win due to the fact that they didn’t like you running at them; they avoided tackling and we were mullering them in the scrums ( Nice one Lou, Rach and Gayle, more of Gayle later). Cazza (our forward player of the match) started charging at them until finally she scored a try under their posts. Our hopes were lifted, although Sam didn’t convert, despite finally having to go off in the second half after landing on her back with someone’s foot under it! They scored again and converted but we remained unruffled.
The second half started with the decision to have uncontested scrums: they had already used two of their subs due to the power of our pack!! Dizzy Lizzy one of our freshers, made one of many charges up the line, one of them meaning we became involved in a maul; we finally fed the ball out to Fiona, but she took a high tackle ( the first of many from them ),got concussion and was replaced by Kelly. At the kick-off we stole the ball off of them; Cazza made a superb run, popped the ball to Gayle who made a 20 yard dash to the line and scored proving once and for all that props CAN RUN!! By now all the backs wanted a go and Beth, our first year winger, made some excellent charges with some great duckin and divin. “HammerHands” Lizzy lived up to her name so much that the girls with her hand in their faces were swearing at her constantly. She took a nasty high tackle but managed to stay on. After Sam’s injury, Kelly
and I moved up into the centres and Louisa (I can’t down a pint Honest!) came on as wing and despite having played flanker for us on Sunday, she kept up with us at all times. Cazza soon scored her second try, showing unstoppable pace. We failed to convert but we were now ahead (15-14) and nothing else mattered. Our defence play hottened up and Little Jo our scrum-half got mullered and had to be taken off. Liz H. came on as flanker so Fiona could move to scrum-half. Five minutes later the whistle was blown for the end of the match. WE had WON!!!! For many it was the first time they had won a match at Surrey, including Gayle, our try scorer, and Sam. The feeling was SUPERB. Mim would like to thank everyone for playing their socks off, each one of you mattered on that pitch and we could not have done it without any of you!! Well done, especially to Fiona for catching a ball, all the new players and Gayle you STAR!!
