CF_AZE'F]FE, Friday,Maroh.14 .-]Meh&-&O08 . ,85 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppin Out Sisters ofMorrissey make audible statement at Sir Guy's By Jen Ellingsworth Jagged. Fierce. Intense: These are just some of the adjec- tives that come to mind to describe The Sisters of Morrissey, an origi- nal alternative band from Wash- ington, D.C. Don't go getting any precon- ceived notions about this band. Just as their band biography specifically states, the Sisters of Morrissey is indeed not a Smiths or a Morrissey cover band. In fact, they have nothing to do with either of those mild-mannered English outfits. While some describe the style as being "alter- native" or "art punk," the Sisters of Morrissey are something else. Writing and playing their own Peggy Raley and the band Eelypse will perform at Woody's Restaurant on Chris- tian Street in Rehoboth Beach on Saturday, March 14. material, the band has forged a niche of its own. The Sisters of Morrissey has been active in the Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia music scene for about six years and has performed up and down the East Coast. The band makes its debut here in the Cape Region on Saturday, March 14, at Sir Guy's in Rehoboth Beach. Band members range in age from 27 to 29 and have a wealth of musical abilities between them. Lead vocalist Sean Weisel is the only founding member remaining with the Sisters. While he spent his early years, learning piano, trumpet and even canting (a monotonous, songlike form of speech), he became interested in new wave and punk as a teen. After years of playing in different bands, he formed the Sisters of Morrissey in 1990. Weisel, an extra on "TV Nation," a syndicat- ed show on Comedy Central, is also employed by a legal services company, Drummer, percussionist and vocalist Bryon Bishop, a former punk rocker, became frustrated with the music scene and decided to join the Sisters for a refreshing change of pace. New York native David Gerster cites Tim Suit of Clutch and Peter Buck of REM as his two major influences. He's especially proud of the Sisters' track "Dreams," because he claims it seems to remind people of Led Zeppelin's "Kasmir." A The Sisters of Morrissey includes (1.r)Bryon Bishop, David Langley, David Gerster and Sean Weisel. self-taught bass player, David Langley claims he became inter- ested in music after hearing the first solo album by Ace Frehley of Kiss. He can also play clarinet, saxophone, guitar and keyboards. A writer of theme songs for chil- dren shows, he also> records politi- cal radio ads and edits videos for labor umons, among other things.

Did you know that paint in colo- nial times was based on natural materials found in local earth and plants? Did you ever wonder why they can't make exterior house paint that lasts for 20 years? Well, if you ever were faced with house painting dilemmas such as these about your own home, historic or otherwise, you won't want to miss the Friday, March 20, meeting of the Lewes Historical Society at St. Peter's Parish Hall, Second and Mulberry streets in Lewes. Titled "The Col- or of History," the meeting will feature experts from three major paint manufacturers who will dis- cuss their efforts to create palettes of historical colors that suit archi- tecture and house styles from the 1700s to the early 1900s and even the present. Painting a home is always a matter of taste; however, some homeowners prefer to select paints that are historically correct. Such choices are as important as archi- tectural restoration and additions that are done to match an original historical structure and that are compatible with the era when the house was built. In Lewes and Rehoboth where many homes were built before the turn of the century, people often select hues that are typical of a particular architectural period or are close to "original." Selecting the appropriate color can be a challenge but three local paint suppliers hope to make that decision easier. Paint experts from Benjamin Moore, Duron and Sherwin Williams, will participate on fi panel to discuss their compa- ny's role in preserving and devel- oping historic paint palettes and the advances each has made in improving paint quality and for- mulation and environmental tech- nology. All three have dveloped an extensive line of historic colors. The Duron Company has recently worked with the Philadelphia, Annapolis and New England his- torieal societies to develop local and regional color palettes. Ben- jamin Moore has developed colors that have been matched to docu- mented colors from historic homes and buildings throughout the Unit- ed States. Sherwin Williams' Preservation Palette spans more than 150 years of historical hues and uses its 130-years in the busi, ness to back the authenticity of its paint. The panelists will also be accompanied by members of their local stores and they will provide handouts and other references for the audience t6 use for future painting projects.
