I tried doing the math, but it doesn't work out. I keep hearing Ralske being
compared to Reznor, and as far as I can figure out, the letter "R" is all
they have in common.
IMHO Reznor and his Nine Inch Nulls are crass commercialists looking to
appear dangerous and evil - but only on a commercially acceptible level. All
the pre-release hype about the last record being "difficult and challenging"
is poppycock. It was nestled safely and securely (emphasis on SAFEly) between
"Broken" and PHM. Yawn. I  returned it on a third listen (I at least gave it
a chance...)
UVS may share the singleminded artist thing with NIN, but UVS's music is so
incredibly subtle. The arsenic bubblegum analogy is quite fitting. The songs
struck me as fluff on cursory listens, only to seep indelibly into my head on
subsequent spins. All three of the albums are completely separate from one
another - how many 4AD artists can we say THAT about? "Rev" may lean too
heavilly on classic-rock conventions, but for some reason the songs don't
seem annoying to me, unlike BTO, CCR, or Led Zeppelin. Ralske's unique
vision, tinged with a nagging sense of darkness and foreboding, is one that
is insulted by comparisons to a hack like Trent. What NIN hammers home with
the subtlety of a rocket launcher, UVS coats with delicious,but poisoned,
layers of sugary syrup. Filigree AND Shadows, if you will...
Can someone please explain to me why he keeps getting compared to Trent
Reznor? The swirling goth-tinged soundscapes of UVS and the noise of NIN seem
to be worlds apart musically. This is just one music lover's opinion here,
and I'm sorry I subjected you to it.
But too late, I just hit "SEND".
Oh well...shoot me!

I really can't stand Smashing Pumpkins, though I have to admit they have
some nice songs and at times can be pretty effective. The power rock and
that horrible buzzing guitar sound they use really ruin it for me,
though.

I also disagree that Nirvana and Pearl Jam are shite. Despite the many
failings of Nirvana, Cobain wrote some great music. The posturing and
tired punk conventions got really boring after a while, but towards the
end there he was coming up with some nice, innovative material--very
weird music, actually. It's too bad he was so pissed off that he couldn't
just sit down and play his fucking instrument like a grownup. Anyone who
goes around spraypainting people's trucks...but I digress...

I also think Pearl Jam get a raw deal, mainly because alternanerds resent
their success and so forth, partly because they put out a crap album last
year...but whatever the case, Ten was a great album. Vedder had a cool,
menacing, original style, his lyrics were good, the meter and melodies
were interesting. The riffola was the best. Sure, Vedder whines like a
bitch in interviews, but he's at least hitting it head on, trying to
solve the problem instead of just calling names, crying about the press
and the industry, etc. There's some virtue to his words I have to admire.
Another thing is that I trust pearl jam and am comfortable with the
genuineness of what they play because, like so few other bands, they will
allow themselves to be photographed smiling. It's almost shocking to see
that, sometimes. It causes me to believe that the whole tortured rock
star thing isn't just an act.

Anyway, the new album has some really decent stuff on it. Yes, I did buy
it! So I'll forgive them for that last wretched attempt.

Anyone know why Mark Kozelek hates Eddie Vedder so much? Are they friends
or something and he was just joking around? He called him a lot of names
in last year's MM end-of-year issue. Interesting. They are quite alike,
actually.

Anyway, grunge lives, and grunge R00LZ!, because grunge includes
*Swervedriver* so there!!! :)

that's really the only problem nirvana had - that and a little too much
airplay & exposure... some of their songs I will write off as shite, but
a lot I really enjoy...

Ok... Ten I liked (there, I said it!) - but I think that both Vs. and
Vitalogy (or what I've heard from it) are both crap - very weak and
repetetive, musically and lyrically... I have to
say that I really like what they were trying for in their battle with
ticketbastard though (or maybe I just really dislike TB... )

> Anyway, the new album has some really decent stuff on it. Yes, I did buy

ok, maybe they just haven't played anything worthwhile yet... but none of
what I've heard has matched up to the quality or impact of any song on Ten.

...4AD's answer to NIN?...  :)

Actually, now that I think about it, Ralske beat Reznor to the punch
by at least a year and a half, debut-wise.

But anyhow, waste of bandwidth being waste of bandwidth, I'd like to
say what a marvelous bit of work the first UVS album is.  I've been
listening to it on repeat for the last few hours, and I think it's going
to be making the rounds for at least another two.  Arsenic bubblegum pop
surreptitiously wrapped around a razor blade, to put it in a large,
unwieldy nutshell.  Simply amazing.

Can anyone tell me about Ralske's previous band, Crash?  Bit of a
Ballard fixation, perhaps?

BTW, just picked up the _Bright Yellow Gun_ single today.  Hmmm.  Needs
a little time to grow, but it's good.  Can't wait for the album.

hmm.. I think they'd have to fall under (a) as being hugely popular... I
consider it a rather shameful confession, but I've liked them for a
number of years - just never quite got around to buying any of their
albums... they're one of the few bands that I've been glad to see get
big, because despite the fact that they're quite overplayed, I have yet
to get sick of any of their songs... (something that can't be said for
some of the other bands I'd liked that suddenly found success)

we're probably both about to get flamed for this though...

yeah, a bit too rockin' for this list - BUT - in a full-circle kind of way,
we have in past talked about a band called CATHERINE who's mentor is Billy
C. of Smashing Pumpkins (dewdrops even reviewed an early 7"). CATHERINE was
originally billed as 'beautiful cocteau-esque wall of noise' or somesuch.
their recent full length CD sounds more like Smashing Pumpkins playing My
Bloody Valentine, however...

if johnny wants to beat the rush, check out CATHERINE...

Now, if that was too non-4AD, let me add that I quite like "Bright Yellow Gun",
appreciate "Crayon Sun" mostly, LOVE "Red Eyes" and really enjoy "Like

You mean "Your least favourite album of the year that you really won't

Thanks, and yes, but I borrowed a machine and a modem. So there!

And, yes, there was a few errors, and the few votes that wasn't in the
required format were ditched. There were in total 38 people who voted,
I think, and I threw away three. I was in a bit of a hurry, as you may

Subject: Utterly 4AD-Type Questions


Fellow Listers:

I have a couple of questions so totally 4AD it's almost frightening.  Since I
figure this must pretty much be the repository of more 4AD minutiae than any
source on the planet, why don't you take a cut at these queries:  1)  Does
anyone know anything about the bands Sort Sol, The Past Seven Days, or My
Captains, all of whom put out worthy, but obscure 45s on the label in the
early 80s?  I know that Sort Sol had two LPs, "Under En Sort Sol" and "Dagger
and Guitar" in addition to "Marble Station," but otherwise I can't say as I
know fact one about them.  As for the other two bands, I'd be grateful for
any discographies, bio information, etc.  2) I'm a latecomer to the list, but
did anyone but Kelli attend the "All Virgos Are Mad" shows in LA last fall?
 If so, I would like to hear any reviews that anyone might have.  And just to
get my two cents in on the "grunge head" debate, I think the Pumpkins are a
great band that makes great records, and that Billy Corgan has been pummelled
a lot in the "hip" media mostly for the crimes of giving self-obsessed
interviews, failing to be as self-effacing as Alternative Nation would have
liked him to be, and, most of all, for making the record that every other
band in indie Rock was trying to make.  They didn't acquit themselves too
well on Sat. Night Live though, and I confess that, staunch a defender of
Corgan as I am, I would have popped him at the DC Music Hall performance last
year if I had had a zip gun for all his tiresome audience baiting.  As for
Eddie Vedder, can anyone remember back in the old days, when musicians used
to piss and moan about NOT selling records?  Let me hear from you.

Well, I just bought the new album by PORTISHED (sorry, not because of you
guys, but because MM voted it album of the year -- even though I got burned
last year with TINDERSTICKS), and I love it.  Could you help me out with
stuff that's similar?  I guess what I'm into is this really slow-beat/dub
kind of thing (I've been searching for SCORN's "Evanescence" for a while
now).  Should I check out MASSIVE ATTACK?  Anything else?  Thanks.
