U WHATEVER flight Tom Tom The Tom Tom Club host admits to borrowing heavily from the d6cor and feel of the second floor of Bodhisatt- va Social Club. His Thursday night club actu- ally is the second floor of Bodhi- sattva, with, of course, a few spe- cial touches. But I'm betting his Ihursday night club will be, for some, an introduction to the upper level of the skinny bar at S. Court Ave. Already, a of mine thought it was a totally new space. Ward has opened up a second, upstairs- only entrance next to Bodhisatt- va's door. Look for the hand- painted, Godzilla-themed Tom Tom Club sign. The club is a haven for cheap beer and great music of the live and recorded varieties. It's a free-form nugget of joy for a se- handful of hungry people, of whom know Ward and tastes from "Mondo Mod Mondays" at the old Go Lounge and various other theme nights. "There's this funny little un- derground in Orlando that never seems to come together," Ward said. "I'm trying to make it come together." You've seen the members of ithe subculture at shows, at bars. They're the kind of crowd that will devour the sounds of origi- nal local acts or deejays who music by people like Nick Tortoise or Will Oldham all night. Ward already has en- listed the help of DJ Sleepy Hip- pie, a k a Joshua Nye of the band Song of Mercury. And Ward revealed a bit of the vibe of Tom Tom Club as he described the story behind his own alias, resident DJ Sexy Saucer: "It's a flying saucer full of sexy people who land on differ- ent planets to show off their sex- iness," he said.

SPITFIRE RECORDS Swedish rocker takes hard turn By ERARD O'LEARY ASSOCIATED PRESS "My name is my trademark," says Swedish hard rock guitarist Yngwie J. Malmsteen. "But when I was nominated for a Grammy for my first album, I knew I was going to have trouble winning, just from the way the pre- senter pronounced my name." For the record, Yngwie is pronounced Ing- ray. The nomination was for 1984's Rising Force. He didn't win. Malmsteen, 37, combines a technique known as "sweep picking" with a love of Bach, Beethoven and Paganini. His albums include Marching Out (1985) and the radio-friendly Odyssey (1988). His new album, War to End All Wars (Spit- fire Records), is Malmsteen's heaviest hard rock album. It includes "Prophet of Doom" and "Arpeggios From Hell." "I would say 'roll tape' and just go crazy," he says. "You might hear a little harmony on the solos. If I played something I liked, I dubbed harmony over that line." When he isn't busy touring or recording, Malmsteen likes to spend time with his family in Miami. "I have fans coming up to my house all the time with CDs and guitars to sign," he says. "My wife and I can be eating breakfast and look up and see a fan by the window with one of my CDs in his hand. It can get mmoying, but you deal with it." He also took time to answer five questions: What do you think about Napstcr? "I think if you put your heart and soul into something and someone takes your work and gives it for free on the Internet, it's wrong, and of course I don't like it. I don't do this for the money, but it is my livelihood. I have a wife and kid to support." Do you watch American sports? "I like hockey and tennis a lot. I play tennis on my own private court. I tried to get into American football, but I just don't have the pa- tience for it. I tell you one sport I really can't get into is baseball; it's way too boring. Like watching paint dry. It's definitely an American thing. Like when you're a kid and your dad gives you your first bat and glove. My son will probably love it." Why did you decide to live in Miami? "Actually I lived in L.. when I moved to America, but I realized I was turning into 'those people' and started getting caught up in the lifestyle. I lived in London for a while and also in Manhattan. I checked out Miami be- cause I like the warm weather and just fell in love with it. Everything you need is right there for you. It's amazing." What type of restaurants do you enjoy? "I love Mexican food and really enjoy Indi- an food. I like spicy stuff. I also love Italian. I'm not a 'meat and potatoes' guy." How would you characterize yourself?. '"very loyal and generous. I'm an intelligent snob. Can't tolerate uneducated people. I have no patience for that. I'm also a homebody. If I don't have to leave my house, I don't. I have everything I need right there."
