Hi Shane,
I 've been so busy playing jacks that I haven't gotten around to

record

Subject: Re: Slot and the 1000Lake bands


>bighat asked me to provide some information about Slot and Asha Vida. Well:

Slot should not really be mentioned on 4AD-L, but they have been described as
what a metal band would sound like if signed by Ivo.
That's not really accurate, but it's not far off either.
Imagine a hybrid of Loop, MBV, any band with a disturbingly-voiced female,
and a dose of wild out-of-control jazz.
They have a CD-ep "Fiver" on Third Gear. Very highly recommended. But it
takes a few listens to sink in. They (had) two singers. The male voice was
rough and very metal-ish. The female one is disturbingly dreamy. Their music
is very groovy, but very hypnotic. Interesting band. Originality is a much
forgotten-concept these days.

And Asha Vida are like a much-more arrogant (their music drips with
self-assurance) Pale Saints. But that only begins to describe them.

Anyone know if there are any new Spectacle releases coming up? For those not
in the know, they have a beautiful sound - deep, echoing, and reminiscent of
a Cocteau/Pale Saints hybrid with a fairy tale atmosphere. Worth checking
out.

  looks like they've got four band names to choose from, and they are

  i've been told that this was supposed to go on guernica, but after
  ivo heard the stuff jenny did with trey he decided to put it out on
  4ad to a much wider audience {blech} with full-on promotional stuffola:
  video, tour, ads galoure.

  they'll be available at domestic prices. it seems now that rick rubin
  has a hold on too pure's catalogue, they are betting on laika to

Does rick rubin have a "deal" with too pure so all future toopure stuff
 will be released on american, or is he just interested in laika?

For laika, i guess that's kinda a good thing, giving them more exposure
 in the states, but...well, now there'll be these american flags on the
 laika records.  Also, they weren't very expensive to begin with, eh?
 Something like $16 from parasol, with a 10% discount these days 'cos
 they're feeling nice?  A domestic laika cd would be more expensive
 where i live, unless they bomb and sell as cut-outs.  Think i'm gonna
 buy their complete catalogue soon.  After all, once it american gets
 the rights to release it in the u.s., it'll be almost impossible to
 get import copies here.

oh wait, that means i still have to drive 500 miles to see them.  Feh.

Isn't there a Talk Talk album cover where a woman has eyes in her
nipples?  Or am I thinking of something by Magritte?  I have always
heard this as "Oriole", an architectural term meaning some sort of
window, as far as I can remember.  Fits in with the rest of the
architectural words ("balustrade", "flagstones", "coarse aggregate").

Christ no! :o You sound like you have the two albums; does this stuff
*sound* like them to you? BDP have dozens of tracks on various
compilations and disappeared singles...WOW...just checked the
discography...this is their first two EPs you've got--extremely rare from
what I know. I'm not sure what you mean by "?" and am thinking I must
have botched up the editing of the included message...Age of Slack, The
Weight, and Tactile are the first EP, and the second is 4 songs. The
titles aren't listed but the EP was called Virtual. The next EP was 6
songs. Argh. There's so much stuff here you just can't get anymore...it
looks like at least 45 songs total.

The good news is the new album, Spanners, "old material plus 7 new
tracks" is out the 16th of this month--the day before the new Slowdive,
even! I could just fall over dead, I am so excited. 8)

so, that's even kooler. Boring! Ha! I laugh at your boring! ;)

The Dewdrops semi-annual business posting / catalogue.

WWW-page
--------
It looks like we'll be able to set up a web page in
the near future, which will take the place of the current
.plan file and FAQs at different locations.

Dew004 - ???  _????_
------
We have a verbal agreement from a local LA band about
putting out a second album of new material after they
so-to-speak 'clean their attics' of old meterial with
a debut release on another label (which should be coming
out in a couple months). More on this as it develops.

Dew003 - hover  _almost everything_
------
As you've probably gathered from Jason's review
of the album and my short postings while on vacation,
the third Dewdrops album, _Almost Everything_ by Hover
has been released and is now available at the address below.
Jason does a good job of describing the CD. It's a truly great
album of some of the best and catchiest popsongs in recent memory, with
nice girl/guy vocals and guitar pickings that sometimes recall
early Felt. Initial run of 913 CDs, full color packaging. $11.50

Dew002 - Orange  s/t
------
Described by Parasol as taking over the Cocteau Twins' throne,
and by Alternative Press as a 'gorgeous gossamer of a debut album,'
this album defines the term ether-bliss with heavenly, soaring
vocals and hauntingly beautiful instrumentations. Shortly after
the album's release last year, the band dissolved, leaving this
their only readily available recording which compiles most of their
output from their two most recent lineups. (The song from the
Doctor Death compilation was an earlier incarnation of the band).
Run of 2199 CDs, full color packaging. $11.50

Dew001 - Various Artists  _Thurtene_
------
The one and only covers tribute to the 4AD record label, planned
and carried out right here on 4AD-L. This consists of thirteen
songs from the likes of the Cocteaus, Pixies, His Name Is Alive,
Breeders, Xymox, The Wolfgang Press, etc. deconstructed and
reformulated by bands across the US having some connection to
the 4AD-L list (Orange, Tel Basta, Hover, The Moon Seven Times, etc.)
As is the case with covers, some are closely faithful to the originals,
while others are almost complete rewrites from scratch. There's a ton of
variety here and every 4AD fan should have a copy in their collection.
About 2000 pressed (1000 green / 1000 red, only red ones available now).
$11.50

Dewdrops Fanzine
----------------
This month marks the 5th anniversary of the publication which had its
first issue in January 1990. It's grown into a fanzine featuring
mostly reviews, 4AD news, and interviews now and then (we've done
His Name Is Alive, Tel Basta, Shelleyan Orphan, Dead Can Dance,
and Swallow, among others.) Two separate and independent reviews
are written for each release we cover by our two staff writers,
and we tend toward releases by labels such as 4AD, Projekt, and
Sarah, and styles from ether-bliss, to indiepop, to beautiful
noise, to the bizarre. We gladly welcome tapes from up-and-coming
bands for our 'demo reviews' section. Issue 12 is the most recent,
#13 is coming this month, and back issues are available from #5
onward. Subscriptions: $9, single current issue: $3. Back issues
are usually $1.35 (write for rates).

Heeheehee...It's nice to know that someone else is as anal-retentive about
stuff like that as I am.  I was in fear of that as well, but then again, have
you seen the new John Frusciante CD?  Pretty elaborate stuff...if anyone
would bother with the silver embossing and stamps and stuff like that, it
probably would be Rubin and friends.  But anyway, didn't Too Pure have a US
distribution deal with Matador?

Anyway, I finally got "Silver Apples of the Moon" last Thursday as a late
Xmas present from some friends who went on vacation to a real city with real
record stores.  And I must say, IT'S ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!  I do wish it
was a little more sonically varied, but they definitely have the potential to
develop into an even more amazing band.  I hate to say this, but they seem
like the type of band that could become quite popular given the right amount
of exposure.  A good live show would help, too - have any of you 4AD-Lers had
a chance to see them?  I'm curious to find out if they can pull their sound
off live.

Well, that's it for now...

yup, i've seen them live twice (once in oct. and once in dec. 1994) and
they're really good!

it's probably almost better that you haven't seen them live though,
because they sing a lot of *really* good songs that aren't on 'lately',
so i've been humming them and driving myself crazy...i wish that album
would be released!

you may try to find a 7" by them as well...it had 'can't get enough' b/w
'drag you down' on it, both of which are great songs.  it took me a
while to find it though, even in nyc!

Subject: "Snow" Shoveling


        After reading that my Cocteau Twins's CD "Snow" was of some rarity,
I treasured the two-songer even more (I hugged it as soon as I got home).
        I merely picked up the CD in some central PA drug store that had a
side music shop this fall, under the 'Import' section (in fact, the store
burt down with twenty others right before Christmas).
        But for those less fortunate, here's the rundown:


                -the CD itself is a clone of the "Bluebeard" single
                -instead of the various trinkets in the picture cover,
there are an assortment of Christmas objects (snowmen, stockings, a tree,
jack-in-the-boxes, etc.) on a white, snowy background
                -instead of "Bluebeard," it's "Snow" in the same font
                -the CD case is the British jewel case for EPs
                -the disc has a 12-pointed snowflake instead of the plastic
dancer on "Bluebeard"
                -the other side of the paper slip has a snowman (roughly
the shape of a marble stuck on top of a gumdrop) that takes up half of the
side
                -the other half has this info (verbatum):

                        1. Winter Wonderland 2.49
                        2. Frosty The Snowman 2.55

                        Track 1 written by Felix Bernard, Dick Smith.
                        Track 2 written by Jack Rollings, Steve Nelson.

                        All songs performed and produced by Cocteau Twins.
                        Elizabeth Fraser, Robin Guthrie, Simon Raymonde.
                        Recorded and mixed at September Sound, London.

                        Management: Raymond Coffer.
                        Original photography: Andy Earl.
                        Images processed at Lifeboat Matey.

                        Happy Christmas.


        Well, well, that's the scoop.  Just for your info, Liz sings both
songs in the style of "Four Calendar Cafe," in a soprano for "Winter
Wonderland" and her comforting alto for "Frosty The Snowman."
        If I'm too late for the info, so be it.

Brandon,
  I was going through my old eMail and saw your review of the Lisa
Germano/Pale saints show.  You mentioned that you taped the show.
What would I have to do to get a copy?  Drop me a line and let me
know...

Thanks,

Ben

Subject: Move Soundtrack Uses 4AD


        This past Summer I saw 'Totally F***ed Up,' a politely titled
movie from Greg Araki (The Living End), about the real lives of many
gay teens in the '90s (Imagine a John Hughes film with all gay
charachters)...

        ...Anyways, The soundtrack was 80-90% previously released 4AD
tracks from Unrest, This Mortal Coil, His Name Is Alive, etc.  As far
as I know there is no official soundtrack available, and since it
left the little arthouse theatre I saw it at after a week, to move
onto other theatres, I didn't have a chance to go back and write all
the tracks used down, and of course, 4AD is too busy to answer my
queries (no pun intended).

        ...Anyone out there see it too and happen to get them all
down? I'd appreciate any help, thanks!
