Not 4AD at all, but very twee and so should interest some people around
here.  I'm a big fan of THE LOTUS EATERS.  All I have is a 17th generation
tape of their album "No Sense Of Sin" and a few 12" singles.  I thought to
myself, "Well, I should check out CD Europe to see if the album is on disc."
 Well, it wasn't, but there was a digital cassette of "The First Picture of
You" credited to THE LOTUS EATERS/WAVELENGHT.  Who the hell are WAVELENGTH?
Are they the descendants of THE LOTUS EATERS?  Can anyone help me here? Thanks.

Oh, and for some 4AD content, does anyone know where that "Let's listen to
some of that COLOURBOX stuff" sample is from on "Manic II" and "Fast Dump"?
I really dig it.  Almost as cool as, "And what what the cloud of dust caused
by...COLOURBOX...COLOUR, COLOUR, COLOUR, COLOUR, COLOUR, COLOUR, COLOUR,
COLOURBOX!!!"  Sorry, but I've been od'ing on Th' Box again.

It's not obvious, because it's not true.  ".sit" is a Mac-based
compression format though, and the software itself is only for the Mac
(created with MacroMind Director).  I wouldn't waste the time downloading
it, it's not very interesting really.

I've listened to "Funky Little Demons" 30 times now, and I think it's
excellent. Not 5 out of 5, but certainly 4.5/5. It really seemed quicker
to get into than "Queer". The track "Going South" (to be the first
single) has been working very well for the dance floor.

If Warren Defever isn't 4ad-God, then Mick Allen is.

I've got it on my ftp site at:

or

198.64.7.253/Director/Cool_Programs/Lush.sea

if the DNS doesn't work.  It also used to be available on the AS/400 where
all the nifty PICT files are (jhvum?)...but it was a royal pain in the butt
to download to a Mac.

The "eye-candy" was mentioned by einexile and was called something like
mindwarp or acidWarp and works under DOS(?) or Windows.  Just do an archie
search and it will likely find it.   (Course on the Mac, there's always
"Flowfazer" which is not free but is ultimately cooler since it was developed

Greetings,

Just thought I would post some new LYCIA news for all the LYCIA fans on the
list. I just was talking with Mike Van Portfleet yesterday and he said that
in about a month and a half he is going to put out a LYCIA information booklet
that will contain lyrics, band info and photos. I asked if there is going to be
a LIVE video to accompany the disc since there were rumours of one, but he ended
ll speculation with a definate "NO, NO live video. Someone did tape one of the
shows but the auto-focus kept focusing on the smoke from the smoke machine and
the sound quality was really poor, it was nothing that I would ever want
released." So there you have it kids, straight out of the great man's mouth!!
If there is any updates, I'll keep you informed.

Subject: Hover album is coming!


DEW 003 - hover - 'almost everything'

This is moving along very quickly to become the third
release on Dewdrops. In fact we may even have it released
by Christmas as originally planned!

For those of you unfamiliar with hover, they're a great
indie band from Vermont who gave us the Breeders cover
on the 4AD tribute album Thurtene. _almost everything_
is a compilation of hover's two tapes 'thinsilverhorizon'
and 'my tea is gone' plus a track from a 7" (sadly their
tribute to the 60's TV show Secret Agent didn't make the
final track selection, which is why the album is simply
called 'everything'...) Reviews of these tapes have appeared
in past issues of Dewdrops, receiving raves from Pat and
the usual quiet admiration from Brant.

The CD is one hour long with a full color 4-page booklet
designed by the band, and it looks absolutely fabulous.
We're taking advance orders for the CD starting today,
and orders postmarked by Christmas will receive a $1.50 discount
off the normal price of $11.50 ($10.00 if you're not awake yet).
After Christmas, the price becomes $11.50. We can't yet guarantee
delivery by Christmas, but it's going to be close. Please send
checks payable to Dewdrops. No credit cards, cash at your own
risk, money orders OK. Orders received up until a week before Dec 25
will be processed immediately (CDs will be sent as soon as they're
ready) while ones received after that will be delayed until after Jan 9.

And don't forget our other two albums:
dew 001 - Thurtene - A 4AD Tribute
dew 002 - Orange

want to be considered for dew 004? send us a tape!

That's right! Right here on the back of my new Love Spirals Downwards
disc. How very classy! Anyone have a copy that lacks this fine little
blemish? It's one of the ugliest and most annoying UPC's I've seen in
quite some time, too: translucent with big ol' fat-ass numbers. Yuck.
Anyway, Projekt were, to my knowledge, the last stand against these vile
and offensive little boxes with which everyone seems keen to deface
their album art, and now it seems they've been swallowed by the beast as
well. I hope Mr. Rosenthal is proud of what he's done. Eat poison, Sam.

The album is pretty good from what I've heard so far. Can't say for sure
at this point but will say I am really enjoying it. It sounds just like
Stereolab, though. :raspberries:

1-800-CD-LOSER are also on my nerves today. I ordered this album three
weeks ago along with AVAM, and am told they'll get it sometimes in the
coming week. Instead, they get it two mondays hence, tell me they'll send
it out the next day, and instead they mail it on Friday. Pathetic.

The rest of my message said that Hypocrite was MOST definitely a US

rather well, I would say, with Split, selling out BOTH shows that I went
to (or at least packing the place) and pulling many of those evasive goth

Also, don't expect an order from TeenBeat in a rational amount of time, it

Exactly... maybe released as promo singles but that doesn't count as a
single.  Hypocrite nor Love Life were released as singles in the U.S.  I
had to resort to the UK CD singles.

THe tour was rather small wasn't it?  The only place they played in the
South East was Atlanta... no where else.  Don't they base touring on sales?
I figured it didn't sell well since the tour was so small.. only major
markets this time.

300/500 refers to the fact that cds turn at 300 to 500 rpm, sorta.
 It's not really accurate any more, and i think this fixation on these
 numbers is terribly silly.

Do y'all know if Taang ever got around to releasing the old Spacemen3
 stuff?  I never saw them, and a lot of things seem to indicate that
 Taang is all outta money (no swirlies for now).

You know how you used to play vinyl at either 33 1/3 rpm or
45 rpm? Well, CDs rotate much faster, starting at 500 rpm
playing the first song on the innermost edge, and constantly
decreasing as the CD is played, toward 300 rpm at the outer
edge of the CD. The reason it has to slow down is that each
rotation of the CD holds more and more data the farther out you
go toward the edge (ie. if you were to "unwrap" the entire length
of the CD track, you'd find a constant density of data per unit length
along the whole thing, unlike what happens on vinyl where the density
increases as you play it toward the middle). The way CDs are recorded,
if one was played at a constant speed, the music would keep getting
faster the longer you played it since the laser would be picking up
more and more data in the same amount of time.

As an independent record store employee, nothing infuriates me more than to
see  people who claim to truly love music yet are willing to destroy the
very music stores that really support lesser known and more independent
groups by purchasing cd's at BEST BUY!!!! How do you think bands such as
those on any independent label survive and prosper?  It's not because of
massive radio play or high rankings in Billboard.  It IS because of the
support and promotion they get in smaller stores and radio stations, which
eventually pushes them into the limelight they deserve.  Without these, I
think fewer bands would ever get noticed.

And let's all remember the purpose of stores such as Best Buy...they want
to attract people to their store so they can sell them washing machines,
computers and stereos; they couldn't care less if you bought cd's or if you
listen to the coolest music around.  They just want to sell you the latest
from Mariah Carey and set you up with a new Pioneer stereo.

Go to most independently owned record stores and you find people who know
what the newest release is by the Cocteau Twins, not because it is on the
charts, but because they actually care about what they sell and keep up on
the whole music scene and not just the big sellers.  And it is in these
smaller stores that you will hear the new Red House Painters or the new Air
Miami, do you honestly think that Best Buy would ever play these to try to
promote them?

As for price, large industry stores can SELL cd's at a lower cost than most
independent stores can BUY them! This is the honest truth. It is no wonder
why smaller record stores are going out of business so rapidly, they are
being destroyed by big industry.  Yes, you may pay a little more in a
smaller store, but you are getting better customer service and a wider
selection of independent  and lesser known music.

So please, if you truly care about thislisty bands and others who are not
as widely known, please support local music stores when you can.

say yes to Best Buy...say good-"buy" to independent stores

Greetings,

I was just wondering if anyone could help me out. I was looking for any album
review(s) for the following bands:

                                  1. Danse Society
                                  2. Southern Death Cult
                                  3. Every New Dead Ghost

I have heard one or two songs by these old bands but I'm afraid to actually
spend the money since these are import titles and if the disc(s) really suck
then...well you know the rest. Any help would be appriciated!!

Cheers,

aLFRED dOUGLAS

Its true,

The Lush Interactive's best quality is that it is a sort of collector's item.
Also, it has some audio clips of the band that are nifty, but the constant
droning of the bells from "Light From a Dead Star" do get to you, especially
if you have a slower computer (like me). :)

NO MARKETING PUSH?! There were Ads (many half-page) ones everywhere &
"Hypocrite" got tons of airplay at the local (Chicago) cheesy (10 song
playlist) alt. station for several weeks. Plus there was lots of press:
CMJ, AP, Raygun,etc.

Yeah, that really sucks. Now LSD will have their music actually sold in
record stores where people will see it. Too bad, huh.

I said nothing about incorporating the code in general. There are plenty
of ways to do so without embedding it. Inserts, stickers, whatever. Hell,
they slapped a sticker on the disc anyway, and it was silly to boot.
There's no reason they couldn't make it a little bigger, print the code
below it, and stick it on the actual case instead of the plastic. Big
job, I know. 4AD managed it for a while, though.

Meanwhile, there's hardly a big bold-type note next to the Projekt
releases in the big distribution catalogues that says "danger! no bar
codes! do not order!"

I think, and I will probably be proven wrong, that 4AD/WB Promo discs all
have this.  Many promos that we got at the radio station from 4AD
including Unrest, Pale Saints, Dead Can Dance, Lush, Lisa Germano, etc
have this little thingy on it..... it's probably just to show that it's a
promo disc or something.
