To me, the difference between Earwig's "under my skin..." album and the
Insides album is focus.  The earwig album sounds good, but it also sounds
like it could use a lot of cleaning up, if you know what i mean.  Also,
Earwig had more guitars, and perhaps less bass guitar.

I believe the rerelease is because of the arrival of la-di-da america...
something which makes me very happy.  Didn't expect to be able to get
Earwig or Difference Engine at all, much less at domestic prices.  Now i
wonder if i can get Earwig's last ep (or do i mean second to last)?

This probably means Crapitol or whoever has it is planning on holding

What you're really saying here is, "You are a lower grade life form who
doesn't study and cannot afford beer." Is this not also drivel? If you
were even reading the fucking mail you would have seen I made at least
one "proper" post to 4AD-L in the last day and was just kidding around
with this stupid thread, which is pretty clearly marked so it's not like
anyone is tricking you into reading it. Or are you looking at each
individual line in your mailreader one at a tim and thinking, "cool,
Belly are touring with REM, better take a look at that"? One need not
wonder where you got your ideas r beer and stress and exams. Cheer up.

Subject French 4AD stuff


Maybe I can help with some of the confusion with these so-called "French" 4AD
releases.  As far as I know, "French" means only that they were made in France.
A fair amount of the 4AD stuff released around 1986 was manufactured by MPO, a
French firm (i.e., "Medusa" and "The Moon And The Melodies").  It seems to me
that as long as they have those CAD catalog numbers, there from 4AD UK no
matter where they were made.  Now there are some genuine "French" 4AD relases
(i.e., the PIXIES CD single box), but these are, to my knowledge, exceptional.
Just go by the official catalog number to determine "which" 4AD released it.

Subject the degeneration of the list...


God help me, but I'm getting really irritated by some of the traffic on the
list.  Is there anyone else out there tired of the DCD vs. LSD debate?  Am I
the only one chagrined to find BELLY and/or R.E.M. "sucks" postings?

Don't get me wrong here.  I'm not a opinion fascist -- everyone has the right
to their own opinions.  And though I do like BELLY and R.E.M., that's not why I
think the spewing of postings about them has been infantile.

It's just that opinions like "they're good/bad" or "they rule/suck" are totally
pointless.  If you want to tell us what you think of a band, tell us why you
have those thoughts.  That way, those of us out here who haven't heard the band
in question can get an idea of what they sound like.  If you do this, even a
negative opinon can be constructive -- if you say, "I don't like MAZZY STAR
because they sound too much like BIG STAR," someone who likes BIG STAR might be
led to check them out.

Which I guess brings me back to the DCD vs. LSD debate.  Face it gang, it
really has little to do with whether LSD ripps off DCD (or anyone else).  Its
really about whether _you_think_ LSD is good or not.  In my case, there are all
kinds of bands I dislike because I think they rip someone else off.  But then
again there are a lot of bands I do like even though they rip someone off. It
all depends on whether _I _think_ the band in question are worth ripping off
and rip off well.

Remember that there is very little that is truly new under the sun.  And just
because something is truly new doesn't necessarily make it inherently better
than what has come before.  And also remember that _every_ band has influences.
Some, for better and for worse, wear them more on their sleeves than others.

So, when you give us your opinion of a band, tell us why you feel that way.
And don't take it personally when someone offers a different point of view.
Think of it like I do -- if someone disagrees with me, it just goes to show
they have no taste and they should be pittied, not excoriated.  Just don't ell
them this to their face!

        And yeah, it is really nice.  Heavy DNA bass, Barry Adamson
soundtrack atmospherics, and a smooth female vocalist (sometimes heavily
processed).  If you like Barry Adamson, or Massive Attack, or even The
Wolfgang Press, it is certainly worth giving a listen to.

        Oh, and about the previous "Music Theory" post,  music theory
makes no place for lyrics and something quite indescribable that I
call "the groove".  To quote a sometimes brilliant, sometimes daft
lyricist with a weak voice that I find utterly captivating, Bernard Sumner,
music can make one "feel what language cannot say."

  but what good is a discussion list if you can't discuss? the dcd vs. lsd
  debate is just that...a *debate*. it's not infantile bashing, like this

Subject Re: Toward The Within -- visual


Just wanted to say, I *finally* got to the _Toward The Within_ screening
last night and it was terrific.  The live material was moving (though
not as moving as actually seeing them live), and it was nice to see
everyone's face close up for a change.  The interview material was quite
illuminating, too.  Sometimes they got challengingly arty (like when
Brendan explained how they came up with their name -- an explanation
that seemed a bit of a stretch to me), but most of the time they were
quite refreshingly articulate.  Some of Lisa's explanations were
simultaneously intellectual and adorable.  I loved the description she
gave about how her singing in an invented language was a way to get
out of her "fleshy prison" and transport herself to a country more
beautiful than any she had ever seen.  I appreciated, also, that she said it
was a very easy thing to do.  (I'm not sure it is, but that's a nice
thought, anyway :-) .)   After so many years of hearing this band
without much explanation/illumination, the illumination made the DCD
experience even more enjoyable to me.  Why isn't this the most loved
band in the world, I ask!  I'm not really asking; we can all list
unfortunate answers to that . . .

Subject Re: What about that new Grenadine and Earwig, no so new,

              and Fly , Sauc Att

        Hmm, I didn't see Earwig's _under my skin..._ The one I saw was an album
called _Pegboy_ on Quarter Stick Records... Maybe this is a different band.
There was a sticker that said "made in Canada."

        So, how does that Grenadine sound? Or the Flying Saucer Attack?
        oh llew, well ho

Subject Pixies/Lush/Xymox


Hi everyone,

I had a few questions for all of you to ponder.

1) I came across a Pixies *booklet* that appears to be something from a box
   set, but I cant say for sure.  It is about 10 inches square. There is
   a stock number of CAD D 0010 on it.  It contains portraits of each member;
   illustrations of certain songs (i.e. the frog critter on a hook for Dig
   for Fire); lyrics to Anna, Make Believe, Velouria, Is She Wierd, Allison,
   Blown Away, Dig for Fire, Down to the Well, Hang Wire, and All over the
   World....so it obviously comes from Bossanova, maybe a limited edition?

2) There is supposedly a Japanese pressing on CD of Lush B-sides, either
   it is out or will be soon.  Anyone know of this or what these B-sides
   are?

3) There is also a Xymox B-sides compilation out on CD by Zok.  Looks pretty
   cool...contains around 15 to 20 songs from 1990-94. Haven't bought it
   yet (you can get it from Ear/Rational for $20.50).  Just wondered if
   anyone has heard anything off it yet and would like to comment on it.

4) I have a Specialty Test Pressing of Xymox' Phoenix of My Heart which has
   3 versions of PomH.  However, it also contains the track "Love Thy
   Neighbor" on it.  Has anyone ever seen this track anywhere else?
   (It won't be on that B-sides CD in 3.)

Lastly, I picked up Lilliput today for $80.  How about that!
(No, there aren't any more to be had at that price!)

Thanks for any help!

Matt

come *near* texas so i am relegated to begging. =(  if anyone has taped this
show/song/whatever pls. email me privately (or whatever-use your own discretion
b/c anything is more interesting than that shit on belly and rem that i just
deleted.)
