Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June English jazz group attracts pub patrons By KEVIN DOYLE LONDON (CP) The ugly little pub reeks of spilled whisky, butted cigars, slopped-over beer and flooded washrooms. The Ravers are jammed against the bar, swilling their pints with gusto. The locals, forced back to the walls, are swearing bitterly and threatening to lynch the overworked barmaid. The noise and the jostling are reaching threatening pro- portions, the stench is getting nauseating and the scene is set for a truly English hap- pening. Suddenly, there is silence and out of a side door prances a plumpish, mincing, laughing little man, opening his mouth wide to suck in the foul air with relish The roar of approval is im- mediate and overwhelming. George back, bringing a wave of nos- talgia to this middle-aged crowd for its youth, the fads of the 1940s and 1950s and the days when pniertainment was cheap, simple and gratifying. At least that's how they re- member it and George isn't about to argue. APPEARED EVERYWHERE Back in those days, Melly sang with the Mick Mulligan Band, playing in every grotty club, army base and territo- rial hall in the country, mak- ing just enough money to eat, when it couldn't be avoided, and to drink around the clock They'd rent a cellar some- where in Soho on a Saturday- night, get in a couple of kegs of cider and by morning a dozen or so other musicians would have joined them in a glorious, drunken jam ses- sion. Mulligan, Melly and their colleagues were the original Ravers, a name that quickly passed to their followers and has been carefully preserved by them ever since. Melly last made a splash in the late 1950s with a revival of Frankie and Johnny. Before his kind of music was largely eclipsed by the Beatles, Mulligan retired to run a liquor store and the Ravers went home to raise their kids. But now Melly has come back with a bang and in the time it takes to toss back a double brandy and light a ci- gar he's wowing them all over again, belting out his favorite moaner, Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out, and unbuttoning his double- breasted pinstripe to reveal his .ample belly. DISTINCTIONS BLURRED George's act technically isn't a drag show. He doesn't dress like a woman. But when he starts undoing his buttons and gliding around the floor, wiggling with one hand on his hip, the distinctions get deci- dedly blurred. Melly is 47 now but when he blasts out his version of Roll "em Pete or Winin' Boy he still brings the crowds bellowing to their feet. They're getting a little fat now and going grey, the old Ravers, but Melly to them means English and they'll stay with him until his voice breaks. To the younger ones, if he's known at all it's as a film re- viewer for The Observer or as an author and broadcaster. But even they are turning out in record numbers, looking embarrassed as they drink with their parents or jostle the tourists in such traditional jazz joints as Ronnie Scott's in Soho or the dozen or so London pubs where Melly makes his appearances. Melly's brand of jazz was never the pure New Orleans version. It was the kind of Louis Armstrong-Jelly Roll Morton revivalist stuff that caught on in a big way to- wards the end of the 1950s. It laded quickly after that but in George Melly's London it's roaring back and to the Ravers, at least, George Melly's London is England. Retail trade drops slightly OTTAWA (CP) The Statistics Canada survey of retail trade during March showed a drop in sales of one per cent but the agency warned that the trade figures may be misleading because the mail strike caused problems with data col- lection. The seasonally-adjusted sales total was billion and there were declines in 11 of 18 trade groups Groups with the largest declines were shoe stores, 12.2 per cent; motor vehicle dealers 6.5 per cent, and food stores other than grocery and combination stores, 5.8 per cent. Grocery and combination stores had a gain of 3.1 per cent, the largest increase among the groups Summer is more fun with HORSEMANSHIP at the COLLEGE THE SCHOOL OF CONTINUING EDUCATION offers two types of horsemanship training in its summer program.

(CP) The chuckles and laughter that greeted the Shaw Festival production of Charley's Aunt here made a fair bid to outlast the spoken lines on the stage. In the hands of Paxton Whitehead. the festival's artistic director and leader, the 82-year-old comedy took on new farce and wit. In its famous garden tea-party scene, damsels and their suitors, parents, guardians and misplaced aunts engaged in the wildest and most absurd mixups imaginable. All the original script was, of course, preserved, with Charley's college mate impersonating his aunt in satin and lace, stealing a cigar and being caught by the real aunt, who tenderly kissed him on the cheek when he would have preferred the hug and a squeeze. But Mr. Whitehead added touches of his own: bird songs and the inevitable bird damage to napery while the table is being set for tea, and hiding under a tablecloth in such a way as to make a man look 12 feet tall "just stretching my legs Brendon Thomas wrote the play in 1892 and he isn't remembered in theatre literature for much else. It is to comedy what Shakespeare's Hamlet is to tragic drama and it has been played in virtually every Task force to develop cultural policy requested RED DEER (CP) Professor Richard Courtney of University of Calgary has asked the provincial government to establish a three-member task force to develop a cultural policy for Alberta. On the final day of a four- day conference that attracted about 700 delegates, he suggested the task force should be given about nine months to prepare a report for study by the department of culture, youth and recreation, which sponsored the conference. Horst Schmid, provincial minister of culture, youth and recreation, said the program was intended to improve communication between artists and the rest of the province. Among the delegates were representatives of business, recreation, education and the church, as well as about 300 artists.

He used false footlights and curtain drapery to recall the Victorian Age. In addition to Mr. Whitehead in the leading role of Lord Fancourt Babberley- Babbs, James Valentine and John Horton managed to look sufficiently well heeled and youthful to be Oxford undergraduates. Comic Kenneth Wickes played Brassett, the college porter, with a knowledgeable twinkle. He even put fresh humor into the tired old line: "Hello, hello, hello, what have we here9" dropping his H's along the way. Norman Welsh played Col. Sir Francis Chesney with the subtle mixture of avarice and military bearing befitting an army man fresh from service from India. Patrick Boxhill was entirely foppish as the Oxford solicitor, Stephen Spettigue. The ladies of the play were suitably inclined to be demure and to swoon. Lorraine Foreman was the real and fabulously wealthy aunt and Hollis McLaren, Janet Doherty and Mary Long were the young love-stricken maidens. Monday thru Friday P 50 Farm News 7 30 News.
