March 10, 1991 | MICHAEL WALKER, Michael Walker is a New York-based free-lance writer.
Vanilla Ice struts to the lip of the Beacon Theater stage, adjusts his attitude and glares at the sold-out house. The erstwhile Robert Van Winkle has something he wants to say, and the mostly young, white and female audience stops shrieking just long enough to hear him say it. "There's some homeboys in the house tonight," he says conspiratorially, managing for the moment to still his adventuresome pelvis.

From the street, the Capitol Tower still casts the calm, familiar shadow over the world-famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine that it has since 1956. But inside the 13-story landmark, the mood is ominous.

JESUS JONES "Perverse", SBK Records , * *1/2 Sorry to say, the third time isn't the charm for Jesus Jones.

I WANT YOUR SEX: That was the title of George Michael's hit song, but hey--who hasn't been singing about sex lately, whether it's with class (like Whitney Houston's new "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight") or with trash (like Warrant's "Cherry Pie")? Unfortunately, safe sex doesn't seem to be a very hot topic these days. So it's refreshing to see a funky young band like Tackhead promoting safe sex with their new single, "Dangerous Sex."

SBK's principal asset is a catalogue of some 250,000 song copyrights that it purchased two years ago from CBS Inc. for $125 million.
