Happy 13th, everone. :)

Well, Ambient 3: The Music of Changes just popped out of the domestic CD
machine and of course even though it is a crap series I had to buy it
anyway because of two or three songs. Actually, it is quite a good comp,
much better than the other three.

Best of all is "Cascade Parts 2 & 3". I remember folks complaining that
it was not varied enough, that it was boring. Well I love this stuff.
Does someone want to sell me their copy? I can't find one. I have an
order in at CDE but it's prolly gonna kollaps.

Also an Amorphous song on here and an FSOL remix of a Sylvian/Fripp
track. (Too much Sylvian/Fripp on these comps. Do these guys ever get
out?)

I keep hearing about this FAX stuff on ambient@hyperreal.com but I have
no idea what the hell they're talking about. Can someone here give me a
short primer on the subject?

Dunno how extensively this has been discussed here but I got my Global
Comm singles for 'Maiden Voyage' in the mail a couple weeks ago and they
are horrible. Five remixes of album tracks plus a new throwaway song.
Really a big ripoff considering that I expected something major from a
two-single release. A major new song and a few interesting bsides plus
mixes, but no: they took a track which previously they'd explained was
intentionally untitled, they retitled it to go with this photo of an old
guy playing with a model plane (pretty pomo but I'll give them benefit of
the doubt that the picture means something to them), and didn't bother
telling much of anyone. The saving grace was the Michael Brook remix. Two
very unique styles clashing in a really nice way.

Why the hell does Warp delete everything they put out?


happy weekend, everyone

        Thanks to a good friend in Michigan who puts out a zine
called 'and i feel like an ALARM CLOCK' (dedicated to everything you
ever wanted to know about Throwing Muses--the first 12 issues at
least--and "women in rock") I recieved a copy of his promo CD (don't
worry, I'm still gonna buy it myself!) of 'University.'

        If you take the over-the-top pop out 'The Real Ramona' and
put in a little bit of this-listy into it you get 'University.'  Some
nice use of windchimes and waves and one of her sons is pretty too.
Would this album "make them famous"? hmm, think so...hope so...

        Also, I believe I read a previous post about someone still
looking for the 'Shock Me' EP from Red House Painters. I too had been
looking all year for it and finally found it in the Flatfield Catalog
P.O. Box 65276; St. Paul, MN 55165-0276 USA, I ordered it 5 days ago
and recieved it today (thanks to my roommate for letting me use his
credit card), and it only cost me $8.00+post.

        Anyway, If you want the address for the Throwing Muses-relaed
zine mail me 'cause I think I used up my quota for shameless plugs in
mail... don't flame me, please.

p.s. someone send me NeXT mail (gif/tiff/jpeg/lip service) bye
already

Subject: CAN info request


RS>> First of all, I'd like to apopogize for the very
RS>> "nonthislistyness" of this post, but I'll try to qualify it
RS>> later. Anyway,I've just recently been introduced to the group
RS>> CAN. It seems that they have been going strong for over 20
RS>> years. Can anyone explain what they've done in these 20 years,

Can was formed in Cologne in 1968 with Malcolm Mooney on vocals but
illness forced him out after their firat album 'Monster Movie'. The
lineup after that was Damo Suzuki (vocals), Irmin Schmidt (organ),
Michael Karoli (Guitar), Holger Czukay (bass) and Jacki Liebzeit
(drums).

Their second album 'Tago Tago' is probably the best example of their
trademark lengthy almost hypnotic improvisations - some brilliant,
some boring. They also did the sound track for the movie 'Deep End'
among others.

Holger Czukay also has a number of solo albums.

Subject: Re: CAN info request


As regards the recent request for info on Can, I think that there is just too
much music and history to conveniently fit into a good list post.  My
personal recommendation would be to track down the Melody Maker that came out
about year ago that devoted an entire "Info Freako" column to a really
complete, concise and anecdote-filled acocunt of the band's bizarre history
and extensive discography.

  it's been quite a long time since i've been out to PA, so
  all i really know of the hip parts of the state are from what e
  or jOHN have mentioned. anyhoo...if anyone wishes to offer
  opinions and info on all the really hip things that PA has
  to offer, i'd appreciate it (mail me, not the list). y'see,
  my entire family unit is in the beginning stages of moving out
  that way..and since i have to move with them, if only for a
  short amount o'time, i'd like to know what sort of koolio
  atmosphere i'll be immersing myself into...

Subject: Does Liz have soul?


        Alternasnobs may want to skip this as it mentions a few artists
who have sold millions of records and are paid handsomely for what they do.

        The question is:  Does Liz Frasier have soul?

        I was fortunate enough to get backstage with the Cocteaus on the FCC
tour and was delighted to find them grooving to James Brown and _Young
Americans_-era David Bowie ("Robo-soul", as the Bowie list likes to call
it.)  This insight into the Cocteaus' taste in music really has added an
interesting slant to their music for me.  It pulls The Wolfgang Press' cover
of Aretha's "Respect" (with backing vox by Liz and produced by Robin) out
of the tongue-in-cheek-Sid-Vicious-covering-Sinatra's-"My Way" state to
raising the question  "Did/does Robin dream of being Phil Spector?".
Working with A.R.Kane also says alot.

        To add a racial slant to the whole thing, let me say that very
few caucasians have soul.  (Of course alot of blacks don't, also.)  Annie
Lennox and Allison Moyet are the only two that come to mind.  Tanya Donelly
comes close sometimes.  And, maybe Bjork.  Tracey Thorn, Hope Sandoval and
Julee Cruise probably would if they didn't sing like they're about to fall
asleep.  James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Aretha, and Prince, of course, all have
soul.  I would argue that Bowie has soul.  Oddly I believe Bono has soul also,
despite himself.

        The Wolfgang Press are getting more and more each album.  Occasion-
ally, The Cocteaus sound like they have soul, but then occasionally they
sound like incredibly cold and calculating studio perfectionists.

        So the question is:  Does Liz have soul?

The answers are:

1) Who cares?
2) What does it have to do with making good music?
