Unless you live in Maine (a state with a lot of trees near Nova Scotia), it
isn't likely you'll ever see Fiddlehead Salad, the prize in another
contest from those insane people at Reprise Records who just can't seem to
give away enough of their music. Fiddlehead Salad is a cassette
Reprise made up for an organization called Maine Won't Discriminate. The
cassette includes music from 16 artists: Extra Fancy, imperial teen, the
Williams Brothers, Doubleplusgood, Men Out Loud, Meg Hentges, Voice Farm,
Laura Love, Glue, Phranc, Gary Floyd, Pansy Division, Tribe 8, Venus Envy,
Ferron and Rus McCoy. Cassettes are available exclusively through Maine Won't
Discriminate (PO Box 11061, Portland, ME 04104. telephone: 207/761-1788).
The goal of the organization (which includes Maine's independent governor,
Angus King, as well as the state Chamber of Commerce and the state Council of
Churches) is to fight off an impending ballot initiative by a fanatically
homophobic right-wing hate group attempting to limit basic civil rights for
gay men and lesbians. If you'd like to win a free copy, e-mail JackMack1 @
