BILLIK The Associated Press P HILADELPHIA — Tired of spending your hard-earned bucks on a million different records to satisfy all your musical tastes? Try the Jayhawks, whose combination of country, alternative pop and blues-rock evokes everyone from the Byrds to the Flying Burrito Brothers and everyone in between. "We see ourselves as a real music value for the consumer," guitarist-songwriter Gary Louris says in jest, "because instead of having to buy like 10 records, you get all these different things." He delights in being tough to pigeonhole. "I like everything about not being categorized, except for the fact that it makes it hard to sell records, just because of the way the music business works. You need references. " He mentioned a review in People magazine of the band's latest album, "Tomorrow the Green Grass," the follow-up to their American Recordings debut, "Hollywood Town Hall." " 'The only person who isn't going to like this record is the store clerk who has to figure out where to file it,' " Louris said, quoting the article. "It's intriguing to us — it's fun to throw curves and keep people guessing." But if you're looking for a band who loudly proclaim messages in their songs or who wear their collective hearts on their sleeves, the Jayhawks aren't it. Their songs are filled with a sense of disappointment, of being let down; emotions rest beneath the surface and only seep out in bits and shards and well-chosen phrases. » The Minneapolis-born Louris attributes that to a certain Midwest reticence. "It's not everybody's business to know exactly what went on in your life," he said. "They can take a certain experience and they can add the vibes of their life. That maybe is more meaningful." Singer-songwriter Mark Olson calls the band's approach to lyrics a "passive" way of writing. "It just seems to come natural," he said. "When we work on songs together, we kind of hone them and let them interpret themselves ... rather than, trying to manipulate it so it is what it is. It's more like letting it happen. "It's a modern way of writing lyrics — we're not very retro." Louris and Olson sheepishly admitted that many of their most punchy lyrics were con- " We see ourselves as a real music value forthe consumer because , you get all these different things." -Gary Louris THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The Jayhawks - Karen Grotberg (from left), Mark Olson, Gary Louris, Mar Perlman and Tim O'Reagan - clown around in Philadelphia, where they were on tour with Tom Petty this spring. ceived under the gun — in the studio. They both laughed when most of the lines brought up fit that category. So what's that tell them about their songwriting modus operandi? "Maybe we should do that more," Olson said. "Maybe we should be more off-the-cuff." On record, they pair in harmonies so pure and soaring that they almost disguise the plaintive, yearning tone of the songs. Their music can be delicate and poignant, but they do know how to rock out, as the ebullient "Ten Little Kids" and "Miss Williams' Guitar" (a tribute to Olson's wife, singer- songwriter Victoria Williams) exemplify. The first radio track, the sweetly catchy "Blue," pairs a richly expressive melody with mournful lyrics. Many songs deal with broken relationships between friends or lovers. Some came from personal experience; Louris has had tough times with relationships in the past because of the stress of being on the road. But some scenarios came from observing other people, he said. "It's a weird way to make a living, though," Olson said. Prairie Festival: Lectures, discussions planned K* FROM PAGE D1 A two-hour panel discussion scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Saturday will feature four Kansas gardeners and farmers, who will discuss how they market their organically grown beef and produce. "They'll talk about selling through farmer's markets, subscription farming, direct marketing strategies," Donahue said. A panel discussion at 10 a.m. Sunday will feature three Salinans who will discuss how people's relationships with the land have changed, from Native Americans to early settlers to present-day Kansans. Featured speakers also will re- Animated Anne Frank criticized as 'too beautiful' By The Associated Press A MSTERDAM, Netherlands — The story of Anne Frank is coming to the silver screen as an animated feature in the hope of reaching a younger audience. But the movie, produced by Japanese filmmaker Seiya Araki, has been snubbed by the Anne Frank Foundation, guardian of the teen-age diarist's image. "The way they represented Anne and the history of World War II was too beautiful and too idealistic," foundation spokesman Teresien da Silva said. "It's not the medium, it's the content. We don't doubt Araki's integrity, but we can't cooperate with everything that has to do with Anne." The 103-minute feature, based on Anne's diary, took three years to make and will be dubbed in several languages. Its premier will be on Anne's birthday, June 12, at an Amsterdam cultural center. The foundation refused to promote the film after reading the script and viewing a 10-minute promotional video. Araki defended the production, saying animation "would be easily accepted by children." \ late to the festival theme. Cathrine Sneed, San Francisco, Calif., will speak at 9 a.m. Saturday about the garden project that she developed for inmates at the San Francisco County Jail. Sneed developed the organic garden as a way of rehabilitating inmates and teach them values, said Matthew Logan, director of development for The Land Institute. Logan said the inmates not only produce enough to feed jail inmates, but they also have enough left over to give to homeless shelters and to sell to area restaurants. The featured speaker at 1:15 p.m. Saturday is Mary Catherine Bateson, who teaches anthropolo- gy and English at George Mason University. Donahue said Bateson will discuss "the nature of people's commitments to other people and to place, and how that varies by culture." Angus White, a Salina native, will speak at 9 a.m. Sunday on "A Place for Elijah: Thoughts on Natives and Wanderers." White is environmental historian at California State University in Sacramento, Calif. White wrote the book, "The Death of Ramon Gonzales," which details pesticide use in Mexico and its effects on the environment. The festival will conclude with remarks by Jackson at 3 p.m. Sunday. Logan said 500 to 700 people are expected to attend. Cost of the festival is $12 a person in advance and $14 a person during the festival. Friends of the Land will pay $10 a person in advance and $12 a person at the festival. Early registration is 7 p.m. Friday. A camp fire is planned at dusk for early arrivals. Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. Saturday. A 6:15 p.m. potluck supper is planned before the 8 p.m. barn dance with caller Mike Run- die of Lawrence. Activities Sunday begin at 6:30 a.m. with a bird walk with Marty Bender and continue through the da y- £
