Dear Friend, Here is the package we have prepared to assist you in local effort you c~re to initiate in opposition

the THE WIVES BIG BROTHER and their dangerous program. any OF

September 1985 Los Angeles Dear Person who has NOT been fooled by the Wives of Big Brother, If you have read the Constitution then you know ~hat each and every American has three, count them, three (besldes the President) personal representatives in Washington, whether you exercise your right or are able to vote or not. You have TWO SENATORS from your State and ONE REPRESENTATIVE from the district in which you live. It is up to you to let them know how you feel about this issue. They have a duty to listen. You have the right to speak. Find out who they are (LOOK IN THE PHONE BOOK) and WRITE/CALL them. IN WASHINGTON. We believe this is what is at stake: THE FIRST AMENDMENT to the OF THE UNITEO STATES OF AMERICA

Included is the typical PMRC fund-raising letter. We want you to see for yourselves what their pitch is. If you agree with their point of view, do what their letter tells you to do. If you don't, use the addresses they have provided (people to complain to), and, instead of complaining, encourage them to broadcast things that YOU like. If they are not broadcasting enouQh of what YOU like, tell them what YOUR ENTERTAINMENT PREFERE~CES ARE, and DEMAND MORE OF IT. If you don't make your feelings known, you are going to be stuck with watching and listening to the stuff THEY LIKE. Also included is a copy of my letter to the President and my CASHBOX editorial. Feel free to quote any of this material in letters you might write to your elected representatives. The PMRC has a lot of nerve to ask for money. they are already very well funded, well connected, and seem to have the entire U.S. news media in their back pocket. This mailing, all legal fees, phone bills and travel costs connected with fighting this issue have been paid for out of profits from Barking PUmpkin record sales, and from Barfko-Swill mail order funds.* We thank you for buying these items. Without the orders you have already placed, a real opposing view to this issue would never have been heard. Okay . it's up to you now. Don't let yourselves down. Take some time and help protect YOUR Constitutional Rights. You know how to use a phone. You know how to write letters. Make noise about this issue. Use YOUR imagination. DON'T BEND R THE WIVES OF BIG BROTHER.


"Congress shall make no law respecting an es~ablishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exerClse thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Are we headed toward a time when descriptions of sexual behavior in entertainment media can be obtained only by employing a lawyer to petition under the Freedom Of Information Act? Must all sexual practices in the United States be tested and approved by The Moral Majority? When they test them, do we get to watch? Assuming, for argument's sake, that the baSic premise of the PMRC's effort is to shield people in a certain age bracket from exposure to various forms of UNDESIRABLE INFORMATION, the proposition is grossly inequitable since it singles out Rock MUSic as the villain. &ountry MUSic contains references to sex, violence, alcohol and the devil. yet the PMRC is not requesting a warning label on THESE records. Could it be that a certain Senatorial husband and wife team from Tennessee has concocted this issue as an affirmative action program to benefit the suffering multitudes in Nashville? Surely there are other ways to protect this vital source of Tennessee state revenue. Is there 'anyone in the PMRC who can differentiate infallibly between rock and country music? Artists in both fields have crossed stylistic lines, even within an individual album. If an album is part rock, part country, what sort of label does it get? Is this determination to be made according to the state in which the material was recorded? The PMRC wants ratings to start as of the date of their enactment. What will be the status of those recordings remaining from the Golden Era prior to censorship? Do they become collector's items ... orwill the government order them burned in a public ceremony, somewhere in Virginia? If, as they suggest. hearing a certain type of music can caUSe UNWANTED BEHAVIOR, then anyone who has heard a Beatles or a Beachboys record is in danger. Those were Charles Manson's favorite groups. Wagner's influence on the PMRC consider a big red by Megalomaniacs? What if marked preference for Wayne victed white-collar felons? Hitler is well documented. Shouldn't 10M" for those claSSical works favored statistics become available showing a Newton and Barry Manilow among con-



Even though I disagree strongly with many administration policies, 1 have never doubted that your personal views on Basic Constitutional Issues are sincere. 1 would like to know your opinion of the record censorship program sponsored by the PMRC, an organization involving the. wives fo elected governmental officials. 00 you asupport this effort? If so, have you considered the basic issue of fairness when a pet prcject, likely to reSult in legislative action that will restrain trade and affect the lives of millions of Americans is promoted by the spouse of an elected official and rushed to a Senate hearing while important national bUSiness waits in the wings? Is it fair that people not fortunate enough to be,marrled to a D.C. Superstar have to keep their mou~hs shut.while THE WASHINGTON WIVES' diddle with the legislative machinery? The PMRC is an unlicensed lobbying group, comporting itself outrageously. While threatening an entire industry with the wrath of their husbands' powerful committees, they blithely spew frogwash and innuendo with the aSSistance of an utterly captivated media. When the PMRC's proposal leaps to a full committee hearing September 19th. an unfortunate precedent will be set. If you support the PMRC (or the NMRC or any other Fundamentalist Pressure Groups) in their efforts to perpetuate the myth that SEX EQUALS SINr you will help to institutionalize the neurotic misconception that keeps pornographers in bUSiness. By attempting to remove all references to sexuality from media consumed by young people. the PMRC, contrary to Its stated goals, will create an atmosphere of ignorance that benefits the child molester. not the child. In a nation where deranged pressure groups fight for the removal of sexual education from public schoolS, and parents know so little about sex that they have to call Dr. Ruth on TV for answers to rudimentary anatomical questions, it would seem infinitely more responsible for these esteemed wives and mothers to demand a full-scale Congressional demystification of the subject. cont.

Fundamentalist Christianity is not a State Religion. The PMRC's request for labels regarding sexually explicit lyriCS, violence, drugs. alcohol, and occult content reads like a catalog of phenomena abhorrent to practitioners of that faith. Is the PMRC aware of the Muslim affi! iations of some black performers? cont.

Mr. President 29 August 1985 page 3 If they should suddenly decide to record lyrics advocating the violent overthrow of America in the name of Allah, will the PMRC's labels deter a nation of semi-literates from learning an exciting new dance called 'The Funky Jihad'? Will the PMRC wish they had used the big red "M" to warn of Muslim Content? The establishment of a rating system, voluntary or otherwise, sets the stage for an endless series of 'control ~rograms' based on 'Things Certain Christians Don't Like'. What If the next bunch of Washingtorl Wives demands a large yellow "J" on a Il material writterl or performed by Jews, irl order to save helpless childrerl from exposure to 'concealed Zionist doctrine'? How long will ~ take till somebody else's wife demands that composers and performers wear a Special Arm Band at all times in public. reflecting the stigma of their category rating? The PMRC has demanded that the record companies 'reassess' the contracts of those groups who do things on stage that they don't approve of. GROUPS are comprised of INDIVIDUALS. If one guy wiggles too much. does the w~ole band get an "X"? If the group gets dropped from the label because.of the "X", do the other guys in the group who weren't Wiggling get to sue the guy who wiggled because he ruined their careers? Should the individual musicians be rated? If so, who is Qualified to determine if the BASS PLAYER behaves like an "O"! the GUITAR PLAYER behaves like an "X", the VOCALIST behaves like a "D/A", or the DRUMMER behaves like a "V"? Will unscrupulous performers voluntarily rate themselves "B/A".(80rn Again), in order to protect their careers and differentiate themselves from the rest of the Stigmatized Scum when they shoot the next "Let's Go Pretend To Feed Somebody" video?

Mr. PreSIdent 29 August 1985
I->dge 4

The PMRC's program protects country mUSicians, not children. It is mechanically unworkable from a listening/rating standpoint, considering the quantity of recorded material released each year. If enacted, American Musical Culture will become a hostage in the Beige Zone, somewhere between the Salem Witchcraft Trials and The McCarthy Era. Bad facts make bad law, and people who write bad laws are, in my opinion, more dangerous than songwriters who celebrate sexuality. The f~cts Simply do not support the PMRC's outlandish claims. This is more than a First Amendment Issue. Freedom of religious thought (if this matter produces legislation determining what is 'occult'), the right to assemble (if these idiotic ratings extenO to live concerts), and the right to due process for composers, performers and retailers (if the major labels proceed with 'album identification', in violation of existing contracts) are all jeopardized by PMRC's demands. I submit that elected officials have a spiritual and fiduCiary duty to their constituents that takes precedent over the whims of their spouses. How many other costly and ill-concBived governmental programs have been generated in this manner and dumped onto the shoulders of American Business? Those involved in this sort of 'connubial insider trading'. if not subject to prosecution under existing law. ought to be disciplined by their peers ... or perhaps they should take their own medicine and VOLUNTARILY RATE THEMSELVES. It shouldn't be too· hard to determine who deserves the Congressional "X", the CJ'lgressionaJ "D/A", or the CongresSional "V". It's hard to imagine a Congressional "0", but there must be a few on somebody's committee. The PMRC loudly decries the label of censorship when it is applied to their plan. Jesse Jackson reminded Jerry Falwell in a recent CNN debate that "You do not judge a tree by the bark it wears, but by the fruit it bears ... " Mr. President, if you are ment off our backs, could you it out of our nostri Is? There brimstone and mildewed bunting not serious about getting governat least do something about getting seems to be a lethal cloud of rising from the Senate floor.

Why did they agree? The record industry bills (H.R. 3163 and H.R. 2911) regarding tape royalties and piracy must pass through Senator Thurmond's Committee. With Mrs. Thurmond a member of PMRC, the industry was hardly in a position to express their true feelings on the matter. After broad hints of 'legislative strangulation', the major labels attempted a compromise. "Not GOOD enough!" said the Washington Wives, preSSing for legislation to control "satanistic or occult content". A composer or performer stIgmatized by the "0" rating winds up on the Ultimate Blacklist. All it might take is a song with a reference to someone's astrologIcal sign. What legal hazards I urk then for the unfortunate reta i I er who sell s "0" rated records? If he sells one to somebody he's not supposed to. does he get the red-hot tweezers or what? cont.

I do not expect a reply to this letter, however, any public statement from you on this mat r would be greatly appreciated.
