Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Former back yard girls now wooed for concerts By IAIN MACLEOD TORONTO (CP) "We used to sing in church, in the streets, in alleys and in our back shrieked Anita Pointer half way through the show. "You can learn a lot in your back garden." These days, the Pointer Sis- ters have found another place to world's major concert halls. Anita, Ruth, Bonnie and June are four Negro girls from an Oakland, Calif., ghet- to. They grew up in poverty. Wilcoim Cinidiins STARLIT MOTEL GmlFilliMontini Modern Units.

"But we've always sung together, ever since we can remember. It just comes naturally." The concert, their first ap pearance in Canada, showed why the Pointers have, in six months, shot from singing ob- scurely in backing lineups to recording a fast-selling album and perfecting a top-billing stage routine which leaves au- diences breathless. Their songs can only be de- scribed as high-energy music. Most of their material is fast, with complicated harmony lines and syncopated rhythms. In many songs, words are irrelevant. Their unique style is created by the sounds of their voices, backed only by a scattering of in- strumentation.

In one song, That's How I Feel, the girls carry on an en- tire conversation without a word of understandable lan- guage. "It's all gibberish, but it makes sense to June said. "Sometimes we go around the house singing to each other in scat instead of that song just came naturally." Their manager and pro- ducer David Flubinson says it is "impossible to describe the music of the Pointer Sisters." "They use their voices like instruments." Rubinson is largely respon- sible for the girls' success. Before they joined forces with him, the Pointers were sing- ing commercial bop and get- ting nowhere. At one time, the Pointers found themselves in Houston, penniless and out-of-work after a series of singing en- gagements fell through. As a last resort, they telephoned Rubinson and cried for help. "I didn't believe he re- called. "I was getting this call from a group of girl singers I'd never heard of, asking for plane tickets back to Cali- fornia. How could I But the veteran of the pop music business was quick to realize he had a winning team on his hands. Rehearsals be- gan immediately and within a few months, the girls were in- side a studio recording the al- bum which was to change their career. "Choosing the material for the Pointers is of ultimate im- portance." Rubinson said. "But we now have all the best song writers in the States con- tributing songs for them."

PHONE 328-0197 New caper Billie Jean King, who defeated Bobby Riggs re- cently in a tennis match at Houston's Astrodome, puts her hand to her face as she makes a mistake while do- ing a routine with Bob Guccione, publisher of Pent- house magazine, for an appearance on the Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour at Los Angeles. Theatre closed to Hair LONDON (Neuter) The cast of rock musical Hair gave its performance outside the theatre which housed it for almost five years. The company has been with- out a home since part of the Shaftesbury Theatre collaps- ed in July after the cast had given performance No. Large crowds gathered to watch abbreviated 40-minute show on the street. A temporary court order was issued earlier this week to prevent the theatre from being closed permanently following a protest vigil by hundreds of London actors, including Sir Alec Guiness and Paul Scofield. LOS ANGELES (Reuter) George c. Scott says he will retire from film acting as soon as his current acting commitments end. Scott. 45, who said he had about a year of film contracts to run, announced he will take up writing and directing when he retires from acting. His most controversial act in Hollywood was his refusal to accept the Oscar he was awarded by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for his role in Patton in 1971. Describing acting in a tele- vision interview as a "destructive life." Scott said: "I think my personality has been scarred by it. Scott recently married ac- tress Trish Van Devere, his fourth marriage, after divorc- ing another actress, Colleen Dewhurst, a native of Montreal.
