since this has so recently been designated a chat line i would like to inform
all the intelligent people out there that i am having a this mortal coil
marathon in honor of the recent posts on them.  i own the box set and right now
"blood" is on. hopefully i can play the original versions before my roommate
comes home from sixth street (i had much "magic" and other types of natural fun
last night, so tonight is homework/catch-up-on-email night.) then my tmc tribute
will be complete.
anyway,

Yes, this is a different band.  Pegboy is a kinda punky super-group on
 quarterstick.  Not only is Pegboy's "earwig" very different from the
 thislisty la-di-da/Insides earwig, but it's not as good as pegboy's first
 album.  A pity.  Earwig's "under my skin i am laughing" album has
 pictures of kirsty yates on both front and back covers, just in case
 you get confused in the record store.

Subject Skinner box


I've been meaning to ask, but has anyone on the list heard of (or actually
heard) Skinner box? It's very thislisty, though not really like anything
I can think of. Sort of Dead Can Dancesque in some of the instrumentation,
but...well, some of it's quite jazzy and some of it spooky (brings to mind
an eerie, old house at dim yellow dusk for me, at certain points anyway).
The first album (s/t) is a bit overproduced, but it's still brilliant...only
on vinyl. Personnel for that one included Mark Erskine, who used to be
in Savage Republic. Second & third, however (that'd be "The Playhouse"
& "Imaginary Heart of") are on one CD, and are the work solely of Julianna
Towns. It's all been out for quite a while. A 7" comp. released in Germany
about two years ago featured the unreleased "Whisper Parade". Hard to find.
You can also find a few tracks on an older 'Cross This Gray Land, and
JT sang on Black Tape's _Chaos of Desire_.

Instrumentation is full: keyboards, guitar, bass, dulcimer, violin, flute,
vibraphone, autoharp and drums. Sultry female vox (sorry, I know that's a
lame-o description) that are very consuming... I dunno. I think many of you
might like it. The songwriting is excellent. Lyrics are a bit melancholy
and sometimes almost morbid. I heard Ed Ka-Spell of the Legendary Pink Dots
was quite entranced by it. Sorry, I'm so disjointed, but if you want to
converse more on the subject email: linimon@delphi.com, puh-lease.
Take care, all...

Skinner Box is awesome.  Glad someone remembers 'em.  Sometimes like an
 old horror film soundtrack, but more lyrical.  I'll have to look for that
 7" though.

Has anyone written the Lush Info Service?

What kind of stuff do you get from them and is it worth writing to?

Also, "Invisible Man" on Split is about, as I read somewhere, Emma's dreams
where she wakes up an it feels like someone is on top of her, strangling her.


If my last message didn't get posted, "When I Die" is about Emma's father's
death.

Love Thy Neighbor was released as a b-side to the Phoenix single, so
I don't think it is that uncommon if you can find the single anywhere.
It doesn't seem that any of the post 4-ad singles are very easy to find
though.

Thanks for 2) and 3) -- I had no idea and will snap them both up if/when I see
them!

As for 4), I have a "Phoenix of my Heart" cd5 from somewhere in Europe (sorry,
it's not on me right now).  It's the same as the 4-track American release,
except that the "PomH remix (spicy?)" is replaced by "Love Thy Neighbor"!
Pretty cool, I think.  I haven't gotten around to getting their stuff after
"Phoenix", but I hope to someday -- which one is recommended that I get first?

Does anyone have a decent discography of Xymox since Phoenix?  CdEurope (telnet
cdeurope.com) lists several titles with which I'm not familiar...

Thanks!

   Actually, the song "Childcatcher" by Lush is also on the All Virgos
Are Mad cd comp. If this is a a redundant message that you have gotten
300000 times over I apoloigize....I haven't checked my mail in a while.
