My contribution to the sensationalist movement:


for those of you not subscribed, on page 51 of huH! magazine
i happened upon Mr. Oliver himself sitting on a toilet wearing nothing
but a huH! tee. he's a twisted chap, vaughn, he is. *special note to
all graphics majors on thislisty* if you don't want to see your hallowed hero
screaming "one if by land, Two if by shirt!" while he's morphing into a
two-headed design-o-rama, AVOID THIS APGE! if you want a good laugh, then
seek it out. Geez it was just plain wierd to see that. And to any of you a
bit squeemish, all items of controversy are artfully concealed.
wierd. that's the only word for it......

Oh, and let us congratulate Neil Impelluso on getting his letter published
in the mag. if it even requires congratulations!?! it WAS neat though to
see a familiar name, and a familiar *4AD* name at that!

Hmmm...

In response to the UVS query...I've heard that they/he was/were dropped
from 4AD with the reasoning being that Kurt spent way too much money
recording Rev and there was way too few sales to recoup.

I don't even remember where I saw this, which probably makes it a little
dodgy to post here, but I remember thinking that it was a reputable rumor.

Any other word?

Funn that this should be mentioned as I just went into my favorite
(spoken "FAY-VOH-RIIIT") record store today (Mod Lang in Berkeley) and
someone had been in a few hours before and sold about 100
indie/alternative cd's one of which was the aforemented 12" comp.  I
snatched it up immediately.  Was very exciting to get the Chain Changed
ep in its entirety...there was a copy there for a while and I never
picked it up, but now I have it on cd.  Everyone say "yipee".

   That's the word from the FAQ, and it's also what Sony/Columbia had to
say about it at the time.

  KOS has, perhaps, 1 song in total from the two mail order *tapes*.
  maybe two. no more than three. the mail order tapes are chock full
  of bits and pieces of music and song and are lovely as can be, and
  much closer to my heart than KOS. KOS wasn't mail order only, but was

Therefore, it kind of makes you curious how it must feel to them.
Being on the inside, making the music that makes you feel so delicious.

Just my opinion of course.  I personally think all good music has
some sexual element in it.  Whether if it is agressive, or shyly and
delicately introverted, it all feeds from the same sort of desires,

My original thread on this topic was that I'm not interested in other
people's sex lives, rock star or not. We all have one (or should) and
everyone is entitled to privacy, except for unfortunate exhibitionists.

You're right, all good music has some sexual element in it.  Mine does.
However, about being curious about how it must feel to musicians knowing
people are making love while listening to their music:  I'm flattered and
embarrassed.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not a prude.  But I think sex is so
one-on-one that taking it for granted in a public way is gross.  Like I
said, even rock stars deserve privacy in bed.

Earlier this week there was a discussion of "the best music to have wild sex
to" on the RMUSIC list.  It was offensive!  I felt like I was stuck in a
locker room with a bunch of teenagers (if I were... well, never mind).

Just MHO.

        I just read on the Curve WWW Page that according to Melody
Maker from June 1994:

["Toni Halliday has teamed up with an ex-member of Dutch 4AD band
Xymox to form a new group, Bassist Debbie Smith looks likely to
remain with Echobelly, and Dean Garcia is to embark on a solo
project.  Halliday has been recording material away from Curve for
the past few months, but the band's press representatives have
constantly denied rumorurs of a split."]

What did Sony/Columbia have so say about *their* relationship with Mr.
Ralske? This, to my knowledge, has never been cleared up. At least I've

The new TWP single looks like it has some cool remixes on it.
I'm going to have to pick up a copy and check it out.  I picked up Queer
when it first came out (in fact, found an import version a little bit
before the domestic version was released) and was really disappointed.
The new track on AVAM however is excellent, and I'm quite interested in
the new album if it's of the same quality.  Anyone have any opinions they're
willing to share?

Speaking of which, back when the first Moonshake EP came out I heard that
Margaret Fiedler had previously played in UVS. Don't know whether on record
or on tour. Any truth to this? And while I'm asking, does anyone know whether
she's British or American?

Queer was released in the UK something like a year before the US. (Use caution
when using the terms "domestic" and "import" on an international mailing
list!) FYI, the vinyl of "Queer" came with an extra 12".
I too was disappointed with "Queer" until I had listened to it about 12 times,
when it finally started to click with me. Now, although I think it's a great
album, there are still a few tracks I don't care for (like "Birdie Song"). The
new album is really excellent, I liked it almost immediately. I guess "Peace
on Fire" would fit in well with the album, but I haven't heard it enough to
say for sure. If anything I think "Funky Little Demons" is more accessible
than the 13YI track. I don't know what track is on the AVAM comp, so I can't
comment, is it a track that appears on FLD?

Just saw a poster for a Throwing Muses performance on January 19, Newbury
Comics, Harvard Square, Cambridge, Mass!  It's in conjunction with the release
of "University".  Pretty exciting - - - I don't know anything else right now.
If you'd like the phone number or other info, email me and I'll dig it up.

Subject: Ques:Lush,CT,Slowdive etc.


First I want to let Francois and Ned know that I will be getting back
to you.(I know i'm really late) but I've been swamped with work and
have now turned to the list for assistance.

I'm doing a 15 minute presentation on "shoegazer" bands in my Music and
Society class, focusing due to time constraints on Lush and Slowdive
and was wondering if any listmembers could help me in a certain area.

1) Does anyone know the actual production techniques used to achieve
the hazy, layered-guitar effect that is characteristic of this type of
music?
2) Also what exactly is done with the vocals to make them so
indecipherable and dreamy? (particularly on _Spooky_ and _Souvlaki_)
3) As Robin Guthrie is known for his effects on _Gala_ and _Spooky_,
has he produced any other "ethereal" bands besides Lush?
4) Can anyone think of any musical characterisitcs of "shoegazer music"
based songs, blurred instrumentation, washy "big guitar" sound and an
ear-blistering live sound?
Thanks for your anticipated help. If you have any other suggestions for
things I may want to include in this short presentation, it would be
most appreciated. Also, there is no need to mail replies to the list,
and clog it up. You can mail personally to my address below. Thanks
again.

  well, if you can't find him, i'll just have to go out and search
  high and low for him...on foot...in the rain...without an umbrella...

> Ivo is a dweeb. (Not *our* Ivo, *their* nasty Ivo.)

  no..he's a creepy li'l troll who lives under a bridge and
  eats billy goats for breakfast...

  all i do is listen to uvs these days, and i have seriously
  underestimated mr. ralske's talents over the years...his work
  is so much more than what i had given him credit for...and
  i've always adoured our dear kurt. i bought rev and listened to it
  and then neatly tucked it away in my napa valley crate o'4ad stuff...
  but it really is a beautiful record with great lyrics and these
  wonderful melodies and rhythms... :sigh: if he's not recording,
  he *should* be.

  anyhoo...did he not produce something for rasputina? i can't find
  info on them either...i know it was posted on a.m.a. a looong
  time ago, but i guess i didn't save it. :( i've been wanting to
  look into their music....being the sucker for strings that i am...

  must stop rambling now..oprah is on...

  *k-j* ...btw, does anyone have a detailed UVS discog. they could
        share with me?...

was completely overjoyed to recieve this in the mail since I could
never find it in stores. "Lesson #6" is a beautiful instrumental made
to sound like it's being played on an old Victrola.

Someone was talking about Dawn Penn back in the fall as sounding like
Loritta Grahme from Colourbox with a reggae twist.  Does anyone have any
additional info about her?  I seem to remember something about her being
featured on MTV-Europe and someone on this list either knew her, or read an
interview where she said that she was a big fan of Colourbox.

Is her music available domestically or just in the UK?  Is she any good?
