Well said....the survival of indie bands is heavily tied to the survival of
the small "mom and pop" type of record store.

I work at a corporately owned record store, at which I get everything at cost.
(those CDs you pay $16.99 for? We buy them for around $10.75). I don't get
paid very much at my job-- the discount is probably the best part of working
there.

Nevertheless, I make it a point to buy from the "small guys" on a regular
basis, though this generally entails paying a bit more for the goods. I can't
forget that I won't be working at this place (and thus enjoying this type of
discount) forever....my point is, for the average music buyer, the small
stores generally offer better prices, and almost _always_ stock better
inventory, and have employees who might actually know something about the
type of music you love.

The fact is, Best Buys and places like it can't survive long-- they are
gambling on you taking home a microwave or VCR along with those cheaply-priced
CDs. So far, they are several million dollars in the whole....
In the meantime, don't let your local independent shop be killed by the likes
of Best Buy.....

I received the following information concerning this font when I
requested info on it (from David(UK) and Paul(AOL)).  You cannot
download it anywhere and have to purchase it.  It is rather expensive
($69), but considering the work that goes into creating them maybe
not.  The type face is called F Currency and is part of a series
called 'Fuse'.  The one you're interested in is Fuse 9 and contains
five other fonts (thinking about it $69 is not too expensive for all
this).  The font is available from the Fontshop in the UK.  Contact
purchase you also get a catalog.  There is a WWW page for Fuse at:

On a lighter note.  Something as bad as the 'cookie recipe' has
reared its head again.  It has to do with a true story about little
bars of soap and a hotel.  I last received this on the net in '92 and
received it twice this month.  Funny first time around, but it has
now taken its place next to 'cookie recipes' in the kill file.

UPC codes are necessary to increase distribution of the item. Many stores
will not carry items lacking this ugly little barcode. This is an unfortunate
fact of life in the US. Many indie stores could give two shits about them,
but to get them EVERYWHERE you need the upc.

To order Fuse #x (I can't recall the number) dial the Font_Shop at
180036FONTS. I believe the Fuse version that had the infamous v23 font was
called New Religions, or perhaps Religions. It's use appears to be dubious;
from what I remember, they looked more like drawings than his traditional
lettering. And I don't believe he's ever used them commercially.

Downloading pirated fonts is bad; I'd have to concur with the other fellow
about the amount of work that goes into creating these; besides working with
Fontographer can be a real bitch. Vaughan's fonts did not really require as
much work; he simply designed the lettering, and allowed someone else to do
all the boring cleanup that is necessary. (This was according to his lecture
at avam)

Well, they put a decent push behind it, but it didn't really take off
sales-wise, I guess. And if 'Lovelife' was released as a second radio single,
it certainly didn't get much airplay. I'd have to agree that it's sad it got
dismissed as yet-another-shoegazer-band-from-a-few-years-ago's attempt at a
followup since it's a much better album than the previous two.

Who's the one that needed to take this to private e-mail?

It appears that you don't entirely disagree with what I said and just
think I'm a mean bastard for saying it, so I'll let your tone speak for
your character.

As for the appropriateness of posting this kind of information to a
listserv, these places benefit from public discussion so they can take
the heat therefrom, as well. You didn't seem to object when I complained
about ear-rational. If we're all going to whine and bitch whenever
someone criticises someone else's friend, then no one is ever going to
give an honest opinion on Love Spiral's Downwards or Strange Boutique or
The Moon Seven Times or The Cranes or anyone else with a net account, and
the discussion degenerates to a series of press releases and favorites
polls, all because no one wants to hurt anyone's feelings. Well to hell
with your feelings if they're going to destroy my favorite mailing list.

Anyway, don't go sending private flames to people when you don't know if
they'll honor an unannounced, uninvited change of venue. I make such
messages public when I think they may be amusing to the public, and so I
am doing this now. Kind of makes you wish you'd at least proofread your
work, eh?

  i think people just don't care. it was being pushed in a market that's
  looking past the guitar wash bands of the shoegazer set and warming
  up to things such as nin & hole & :gag: veruca salt. indie and anger
  and venom spewing and brattiness and that sort of brash style. lush
  are just too sugary sweet nice. yeah..*we* know better, but the
  public that they were being pushed on don't. they just don't care.

Well, they were shipped to radio as cd singles, and if there is a college
campus within your area, you could probably find them used, as
"so-called" cd singles.  Now, were they cd singles that you could find at
The Wherehouse like, say, Salt-N-Pepa's "Shoop" or Cyndi Lauper's "She Bop"?
No.  But neither is DCD's "American Dreaming" or Lisa Germano's "Stars",
nor was Pale Saints "Angel (Will You Be My)", but they were all singles.
Hypocrite even had airplay on MTV, and MTV RARELY picks a track from an
album they like and forces the band to make a video for it so that MTV
can play the "album track".  Maybe that's why Hypocrite was on AVAM,
though.  Maybe Miki, Emma and the boys are Virgos all, and maybe they
were mad because MTV FORCED them to make the video.... !!!


.... maybe not.

I think you're both kind of missing the point, maybe because you are
partial to these songs but while I love the entire album, the two
tracks in question were bad choices. They back up an already existing
negative view of the band (as shoegazey, etc) and are generally a bit
obnoxious. At least I think they probably annoyed more people than would
let's say Undertow and When I Die. It may also be that Lush have reached
their limit and there is simply no one left to win over. I think it's the
choice of singles, though. A lot of bands seem to toil over which tracks
will go over best with the public and radio people etc, and to hell with
just putting out the best song on the album. Pretty lame, imo.

yes i agree if they had pushed these two songs (the best on the cd imnsho),
granted it prob would have been a harder sell but i think when i die could have
made it commercially, if not both.  i think lush are simply victims of the fact
that in the us now people have just begun to get over the "grunge movement" and
are slowly finding new tastes.  personally i think the latest focus in my eyes
on a lot more bands with women's vocals will help them out, too.

Subject: Small stores vs Big Stores


     Jennifer stated that in the US big stores can sell CD's at less than
     what little stores can buy them.  This may also be the case in the Uk,
     but the prices dont reflect that situ.  The little indie stores that I
     buy from sell CD's for about ?11.  The majors (HMV,Virgin etc) seem to
     be around the ?12.99 mark..although some prices have gone down
     following the continual price fixing allegations.

     Sure the big stores have bigger premises, have to hold more stock etc
     so I guess this is part of their justification for higher prices.  I
     must say that smaller stores provide better service, have more
     knowledge of thislisty music, and are prepared to help and inquire on
     things for you.  PLUS the little stores usually have a 2nd hand
     section where Ive picked up a few things in the past..including a few
     4AD promos and press packs..seems like the reps sell the promos as 2nd
     hand CD's.

     A few requests for info :

     Has Humroot by Shelleyann Orphan been deleted ..whats the chances of
     picking one up ??

     How representative is 'Anatomy of a poet' with regards to other In the
     Nursery releases ??  Ive been spinning this one more regularly
     recently and it is a very good release..althought the few tracks with
     poetry being recited over music took a bit of getting used to..I mean
     I dont want anyone to think Im getting culture, do I ??. It was Ok to
     have Linton Kwesi Johnson reading his poetry over music cos he 'in'
     for a while, and who can argue with his 'England is a bitch' track ??

     Also the Glee Club 'Mine' has grown on me, and both of these have been
     able to keep 'Heavenly Voices' off all of this week !!..a major
     achievement believe me, the therapy is working !!
     What other Glee Club releases should I be trying to get my sweaty
     hands on ??

     I seem to get the impression that DCD are selling a few copies of TTW
     in the States - are they starting to make it big over there ??

     Is it time to start nominations for best album and single of 94 ??

     Cheers

Excuse me, but what the f**k are you talking about? MTV forcing Lush to

Curtis Taang has released the first Spacemen 3 reissue that he "supposedly"
has the rights to.  It's _Playing With Fire_ with some different artwork and
the B-sides from the "Revolution" single.  It was my understanding that Fire
had licensed all Spacemen 3 recordings to Bomp, SFTRI and Genius.  Can some-
one clarify this issue?  I wouldn't be surprised if Curtis nearly bankrupted
his label with all the ads in Spin, Rolling Stone, Alt. Press etc...

That might be the case in the US, but here in the UK, I always get new
CDs far cheaper at the local indie haven (being Avalance Records) than I
would at Virgin or His Bastards Price. I also get the pleasure of shopping
in a place with no Mariah Carey records whatsoever... (And they _do_ have
the AVAM CD there as well - they even _had_ 13yr Itch....a couple of days
before I went there to buy it. Sic transit gloria mundi...)

Yeah?  Well I gave up on my local "alternative" music store, Soundwaves, after
they didn't know anything about:

a.  The Insides
b.  Stina Nordenstam
c.  DCD "Toward the Within"  (video *or* CD)
d.  AVAM  <---what it was or what the CD was

(all fairly common items, I might add.)

I went to my friendly Blockbuster Music and found *ALL* of the above in one trip
after fruitless months of trying to get these items at Soundwaves.  ....and I
bought a VCR and TV at Best Buy that I couldn't be happier with.  :)

   I think in this specific instance there is an important difference
from your example in that I already knew exactly what I was looking for
before I even drove to Best Buy. That is, I didn't need confirmation from
a knowledgeable, helpful, friendly music aficionado that this was a good
CD to purchase or that I would enjoy it. The only thing left was price
and availability. Best Buy had AVAM at a price which I knew was $4 - $5
less than the independents in my area, if I could even find it elsewhere.
   I have no problem shopping at independent stores in Denver and do so
quite often. My main reason is that the independents often carry small
bands on small labels which I can't find at Best Buy (unless I'm very lucky).
However, if I happen to find a CD at Best Buy I will purchase it and save
a few dollars so I can have $ to spend for the harder to find CDs at
JB&H or Wax Trax, my two favorite independent CD dealers. Price is
important to me because I purchase 8 to 10 CDs per week.
   In our area Best Buy now has direct competition from Media Play which is
the SuperStore division of Musicland. They actually beat Best Buy's prices
although lately their selection seems to be shrinking. I think they may
have purchased some "alternative" CDs when they first opened but haven't
re-ordered. Therefore, they are beginning to look like their older,
mall-oriented, corporate big brother, MusicLand. Still, I have found some
pretty exclusive CDs at Media Play, just not that many and not recently.
   BTW, the CD store called Wax Trax was founded and built by the same
guy who went on to start the Wax Trax record label. Other than that there is
no connection between the two.

On top of Cindytalk having a new album (Wappinschaw, on Touched Recordings
distributed by World Serpent in the UK), they also have a new track on
Emigre`s Sampler #3, Dreaming Out Loud. I`m assuming this id the track called
The Salt Heals All My Wounds, which is an instrumental. Also on the CD are
Honey Barbara, The Grassy Knoll, Supercollider, Paul Rucker, and Ui.

To get this, you`ll probably need to order directly from Emigre, since they
aren`t usually picked up by most stores. Here`s details:

Regular CD $9.95
Deluxe CD $15.00 (w/24 page book and custom made box)
Cassette $4.95

S+H $3 in US, $4 in Canada, $8 in Europe, $10 in Asia.

Order by faxing Emigre 916-451-4351, or
Mail to Emigre, Inc., 4475 "D" Street, Sacramento, CA 95819, USA

They say to expect 4-6 weeks for delivery. They take credit cards, money
orders, and checks (but they wait till the check clears).

Seeing Lord Purge's quick mention of a new Cindytalk album reminded me
that I've been meaning to check out their back catalogue for some time
but have never got around to it.

The only thing I have is a rather lovely ep that plays at different speeds
on different sides, called "Secrets and Falling", I believe. I know that
they released two identically named albums simultaneously some years back,
causing much confusion. I know they have a new album out now. I don't know
anything else. If anyone has opinions about what their best work is, (and
preferably, why) then I'd love to hear them.

Subject: Lush singles (Was RE: Lush Lush Lush)


[BTW,  I have no idea why my mailer inserts s into my messages.
I apologize if this makes them less readable at times!]

RE the recent debate about a Lush's latest album.  Here are some notes:

1) I agree with Starr's assessment.  Early reports from 4AD (in Billboard
and other places) made it clear that they were hoping Split would be
up there with Belly's _Star_ and Breeders' _Last Splash_.  Somebody
noted that 4AD has a simply HUGE success monetarily and promotionally
with _LS_.  _Split_'s initial sales were not even as good as their
previous CDs, so even though the tour was a huge success, it looks
like 4AD and Warner pulled the rug out from under the album.  Damned
shame!

2) And, Ivo, if you think Lush released any domestic US singles, please
tell me what they are (with Reprise cat numbers, etc.).  I haven't
seen any myself. And nobody has reported any to me.
In fact, I am finally going to break down and buy
the $10.00/each Brit imports of "Hypocrite" and "Desire Lines" since
they don't look like they'll be coming out here. :-(

3) Oddly though, Ivo does inadvertently raise an interesting
look at the discog reveals that they issued promos for *5*
different songs in a variety of formats and combinations:

"Kiss Chase b/w Undertow"
"Hypocrite"
"Lovelife"
"Hypocrite/Desire Lines"
"When I Die"
"Light From a Dead Star"

Perhaps part of Lush's problem with _Split_ is that their U.S.
label couldn't make up their fucking mind what single to push,
so they pushed them all.  Very bad marketing, methinks.

Hehe...I don't know!  Actually, I didn't make the comparison to Pearl
Jam, but that's nitpicking.  I think what I'm trying to show is that
unlike "mainstream" music, non-"mainstream" artists like Lush, Dead Can
Dance and Pale Saints are not mass-marketed the same way as "artists" like
Pearl Jam, Salt -N- Pepa, and Cyndi Lauper, therefore there is no way to
analyze the success of a non-"mainstream" band like Lush using
"mainstream" terms such as single sales.

the next HNIA due? - I hope they got that (d)HNIA crap out of their systems.
If anyone is wondering about that Isomorphic Records sampler, there's some
really great stuff on it. Randy Greif's "Rusted Sorrow of the Old Crane" is
very thislisty. You have to like noise to enjoy most of the remaining tracks,
though. And if you DO like noise, check out Brice-Glace's "when in
vanitas..." (on Touch and Go) - it's a unique amalgamation of ambient, rock,
atmospherics, and industrial sounds. Amazing!
Rosewater Elizabeth are also worth your money - sort of a DCD/CT hybrid with
many original ideas thrown in. They're on 24Hr Service Station in Florida -
e-mail me for the address if interested. Of course, judging from the past,
this might spark another "sounds like" argument. But they are good - with a
19yr old female vocalist who rivals Liz, and (dare I say) Linda.
In response to the BestBuys debate, I have a compromise that works for me.
The indie/import stuff I special order en mass($100-$200 per visit) from my
favorite indie store (Zelco Music in New Haven, FYI). The rare domestic major
label release worth picking up I'll buy anywhere that it's cheapest (under
$12)- or wait and get from Columbia House for $3.99. What I can't special
order from Zelco's I order from a distributor like Parasol (great selection)
or Smash(ditto) Records...and I still can't find any of the above. (sigh...)
Like I said, it works for me. Everyone gets what they deserve - esp the major
labels (next to nothing - HA! =D)

Enough for now. Listen to the new Laika and all the Pram and Stereolab you
can find. G'night

Subject: A question about Projekt


Well, after my (largely internal) dissing of all stuff that is wannabe 4AD,
I found myself in a used record shop with the Projekt cd by SOUL WHIRLING
SOMEWHERE in my hands.  I thought to myself, "What the hell...I'll take it
over to the listening station and give it a try."  Well, I actually liked it
(the name is still 7th form DCD though).  Very peaceful.

So, I was wondering if any of you Projektphiles could recommend some other
stuff on the label I might like.  What I like about this is the orchestral
synths and the accoustic guitars, plus a male singer (no gender bias
intended -- I just prefer male voices).  A local shop has the 2 cd BLACK
TAPE FOR A BLUE GIRL covers thingie.  Would that be a good way to check out
the label?.  Any help you can offer would be appreciated.  You can either
write to me direct, or send it through the list, depending on whether you
think anyone else would care to hear.

And I'm sorry to any of you out there who are tired of all the Projekt stuff
on the "4AD-list" and thought that strain had died a slow death....

LUSH is touring in Japan from the end of November. They played in Osaka and
Nagoya, and in Tokyo is their last show in Japan. The venue was Liquid Room
at Shinjuku. Matsuino Factory appeared and played some stuffs. I heard that
Miki was on the floor and listening to them as is often the case. MF was ok
but LUSH blew them away after a long interval. Their show was excellent much
more than I had expected.
I met Mitsuwo Tate, tour guitarist of COCTEAU TWINS, after the show.
For LUSH collectors, Columbia Japan released mini album titled _Cookie_ on the
day. Most tracks are from singles "Desire Lines" and "Hypocrite". But the cover
art is nice. (by v23)

Subject: Where are they?


Whatever happened to that Seefeel tour that was supposed to happen way back?
Did it get cancelled or did I just miss out (as usual) by being in Florida?
Also, what about Cranes?  Shouldn't they be doing that tour thing by now?
If anyone knows anything about these, please let me know.  I'm going through
good concert withdrawal here.  JAMC/Mazzy Star was the last thing to come
through and it was very nearly ruined by frat boys and high schoolers.
