enterprises among them questionable cartoons, awful musicals, tacky movies and some worthwhile tech- nological break- throughs in sophis- ticated amplify- ing equipment Add to that list art Guy Peellaert, tall, nearly gaunt native of Brussels now living in Pans is an artist who specializes in rock music The 40 year-old bachelor, clad for an interview in a tight- fitting French un- dershirt and casual trousers speaks careful halting English as he smokes his thick Gitane cigarettes He smiles a lot He has a lot to smile about these days since his first work in this country was just released 'Rock Dreams (Popular Library Rock Dreams' is an existential smorgasbord of pop sociology and flashy surrealistic paintings that capture the multi dimensional depravity of rock stars with too much money to spend and nothing to spend it on Five years ago, Peellaert was known only to European un- derground "comix fans as a contributing artist until he drew a cartoon strip for the French satirical magazine HanCan The cartoon depicted a soccer team huddled in their dugout planning game strategy, then fighting on the field for the ball and through a series of panels even- tually metamorphosiz- ing into a patrol of arm- ed soldiers under fire in a trench and on the battlefield It not only opened the minds of many continental anti- mihtansts but opened the door of opportunity for Peellaert as well It was right after publication of that issue that Peellaert's future exploded He received offers to illustrate for several leading Euro- pean magazines and op- portunities to animate movies Playwright Peter Zedeck also asked Peellaert to design the stage set for a Sean 0 Casey play Zedeck was planning to produce It was May, 1970, when Peellaert, researching a movie he hoped to produce, launched the idea for Rock Dreams A devoted student of American film and music fan magazines for more than 20 years, Peellaert realized the effect of rock music and its magnitude Shortly there after "Rock Dreams was realized Two years and seven months later Peellaert unveiled 116 paintings incorporating photomontage, air brush and a sardonic ar- tist s touch Each painting took approximately two weeks to complete he said One week was spent shooting backgrounds with a Polaroid camera and the next was spent adding the other elements some paint to the background or a photo of some musician's face Then, the whole thing was photographed again to give it a flat, two- dimensional effect' Peellaert said it was the first time he had ever used the technique of photograph and paint, 'and probably the last It was an interesting idea but I don't expect to repeat it for anything else I do Rock appears such a distinctly American vice that it ought to be difficult for a European to perceive it in all its New World wickedness but Peellaert's perspec- tive is hardly suffering from naivete or culture shock Rock is music and as such, is he said, but the door is closing It has become a fashionable cliche Rock Dreams' was my way of saying It was fun while it was here but now it's gone, the final chapter is folding Let us record it and then move on Helping Peellaert graphically record the 20th century's new gladiators is British pop writer Nik Cohn His terse sensitive com- mentary accompanying each painting is always polite and never interferes with the lurid thrill show splashed before the viewer Peellaert s im- pressions of the pied pipers who led a genera- tion astray are rarely literal Instead he paints a moral feast serving up all aspects of the billion recording industry many not very appetizing Peellaert s own favorites among the warped panoply of 'Rock Dreams are his rendering of a drunken Jerry Lee Lewis (the hillbilly Mick Jagger of the 50s) and his pathetic portrait of the lifeless Jams Joplm sprawled across a bed in an otherwise empty room They need no Peellaert states simply in explaining why he prefers those two over the rest Peellaert said that nearly a third of the original paintings appearing in 'Rock Dreams have been sold, many to the notables immortalized in its pages Among the buyers are David Bowie, John Lennon and the Rolling Stones who also commissioned Peellaert to produce the art for the sleeve of their latest album To date, he has heard only one complaint from those included in his book "Tina Turner took one look at my painting and blew up1' he said OBLIGATION TO APPEAR Bail bond is an obligation signed bv the accused, with or without sureties, to appear in court SPECIAL GUEST SOUTHERN ALBERTA
