I saw them last June in Toronto opening up for Slowdive. They played
acoustic, and were amazing. I actually got to interview them, and let me
tell you Warren is in fact a genius. Anyways they said that they weren't
really touring that they had just been asked to play with Slowdive for a
one time only show.

Well it seems that wherever you saw that listing it
was some sort of typo. It's suppose to be "Spooky". That's unless it's
something new from their new Album which would be quite nice. Anyways,
if you could possibly look at the play list and see that it has Spooky's
songs with Fallin in Love and God's Gift as track 13 & 14 then it is
indeed a typo. The Japanese import of Spooky just has a short story of a
Japanese writer describing how Spooky is lush's *first* album and how
they where influenced by other bands like MBV and so on. There is also
all the lyrics to Spooky with the exception of Fallin in Love. On my
copy there was several typos as well in the lyrics.

I have to admit that I really like the new XYMOX disc, "Headclouds." I guess
I've listened to it enough times that it has really grown on me.
Does anyone know anything about this XYMOX remix disc? I saw it advertised on
...well, not advertised, but I saw it for son line at CDEURoPE. What is
on this disc? I also saw a disc called "DARK PLEASURES" which was "SUBSUQUENT
PLEASURES" + some live tracks. Can anyone please tell me more about te discs.
Are they worth having?
Finally, what exactly happened to Anka? Did she and Ron have a spat???
Any help into any of these matters whould be more than appriciated!!
Happy New Year!!

I actually don't mind a band drastically changing style (as long as they're
as good at their new style as at their old), but it'd be nice if they'd
change their name when they do. Certain bands (Chris & Cosey and Psychic
TV, for example) you expect to change drastically in style every once in a
while, drifting in and out of techno, going back and forth between pure
electronics and guitar-driven music, etc. But with most bands, it's
shocking, and a bit disappointing, to finally get that new album you've
been waiting for for the past two years and find that it's entirely
different music (e.g. the Soup Dragons' second album, Bad Religion's Into
the Unknown, Current 93...). Disposable Heroes of Hiphophrisy aren't the
Beatnigs, and they acknowledged that by changing their name.
In the case of Xymox, it's a little different, since their style changed
somewhat gradually over a span of quite a few years. If you were really
that shocked by Headclouds, you probably haven't been paying much attention
since they left 4AD.
I didn't mean to babble this long (or this seriously), so I'll leave off here.

What song might THAT be? The only song I can think of that remotely
refers to throwing up might be "Sugar Hiccup", but that isn't on
"The Pink Opaque".
"The Spangle Maker" sort of sounds like she's singing about saliva or
snot or something. :) "...it's the droplet singing, broken winded,
broken winded, whistling..."

Howdy folks, got some thing in the mail today from 4AD, as probably a few of
you did too. It looks like a card with some strange artwork on it and inside
it just says "No Baubles". Does that mean Happy New Year in 4AD? Or are they
promoting some upcoming book or compilation or whatever? I'm confused.

Ooops, I mean, it's the official 4AD Christmas card! I determined that the
design is a banana with a ripped stocking pulled over it... no, I really
don't know what the design is, but it is weird. Most record companies send
out Christmas cards to their good clients, etc. so this is just 4AD's version

I also got a funny Xmas card in the mail from Frontier records:
It features a devil in a santa suit, handing a bong to a little boy that
looks like one of the kids on "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", and the
little boy is also holding a bottle of wine and a pack of cigarettes.
Inside it says "Happy Hellidays from your fiends at Frontier Records."

Al, there really is NO such thing as REAL Cocteau Twins lyrics. The only
exception would be the few phrases Liz had scribbled on the back of the
sleeve for the original vinyl release of "Garlands". Everything else
is purely speculation. I have contributed many of the 'lyrics' found
at the WWW site, and make NO claims that they are in any way genuine.

I got one of those too. I figure it's what passes for a Christmas card in
4AD-land. I personally thought it was kind of cool--I find the holiday
season a royal pain and was delighted to get a card that seemed to tweak
the whole forced-sentimentalism of the time of year; that's probably what
was meant by "no baubles" (read: "no bullshit").
Wonder what that penile object was on the front? Probably VO and company
thought, "Let's do something to confuse everyone on 4AD-L..." :)

Japanese releases tend to be the same as the English release, but with
extra notes and translations in Japanese. They also cost twice as much,
and are rumored to sound better, but I doubt it. I think these use the
same binary image of the music as the domestic release. My Japanese
friend tells me that domestic CDs cost the same over there, about 15$,
the Japanese version will cost about 30$. I guess people will pay for
the translation, even if it doubles the cost of the CD, which, if you
think about it, is absurd.

It's kinda weird, but after listening to the song about 20 times it
suddenly jumped out at me. I'm not crazy because someone else( my
hair cutter) said the same thing, so I know I am not the only one, but
none the less, I can't recall it's name. The cutter could not recall
either because it's been some years, now, and I had a tape of the
album without the titles anyway( but now I own nearly every single
CD). The weird thing is, that I had never heard it before, but
afterwards I could make it out quite distinctly.

Robin was hanging out with his female admirers. And they were both in

Okay, I just listened to them both again, with much fiddling
with the function buttons etc. (I only have Serpent's Egg
on tape) and whaddya know, it's the same pattern of
notes and yes it does sound like Lisa singing - very much so,
it's that style - but I bow to your observations; for one thing
the sample appears to be in a different key.
Now I'm curious. If that's not Lisa, I'd like to hear the song
where it does come from. I've got the 1st Le Mystere album, but
I don't recognize it from there. Anyone else have any thoughts?
