I saw some kind of compilation today titled _The Arbitrary Meaning
Of Nature_ that included something by Dead His Name Is Alive with
an acknowledgement to 4AD. Does anyone know what this comp is like?
It was limited (ooooo, a collector's item!), number 249/1000. Thanks.

hey everyone!
        does liz have soul???? i think she does, i think she has a  lot
of soul! since you saw her at the fcc tour and so did i, i really thought
she put a lot of herself into her singing. isn't that what kinda defines
soul in a singer, if they put a lot of him/herself into the music and the
songs? liz may not be mariah carey or aretha franklin but she is
elizabeth fraser.
        (in the song "summerblink", liz says "i'm doing a fine job"...and
i really think she is!)

laters,
pete

Its soul alright....either that or a new vocal coach.

I heard a tape of CT playing at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles
on the FCC tour....during "Pitch the Baby" she kept making this funky
"AHHH-OHHH-AHHH" noise in between the verses.......

  we just went over this a few days ago, but here it is again:
  this is an experimental/noise music compilation. in no way is it
  a 'thislisty' sort of release. the princess dragon-mom & dead hnia
  tracks are no more than a couple minutes each...pd-m being a
  lovely pycho noise jam that i am particularly fond of {'theme for
  food'} and the dhnia track being a full-on wall of noise sludge {'do
  you want to have trouble?'}. there are some exceptionally good tracks
  on the comp...illusion of safety's contribution is quite nice, and i
  really dig randy grief's piece, which sort of sounds like a lisa
  gerrard sample from 'the host of seraphim' but cut off and looped
  in two keys. it's a nice comp. for a first release from isomorphic
  records...

Mail service is spotty at my receiver, plus I am digested. I *did*
see the info you referred to, but only after sending my note.

Thanks for the info--it was kind of you to repeat it for me. Perhaps
recaps could be sent as private email (or not at all--I don't whine
if I don't get an answer) so as not to annoy the rest of the list?

(And just to head off those who might suggest that this response
should have been private, I deliberately sent it to the list so
that others might see/consider the topic of recaps and private
responses.)

her singing always reminds me of Vocalese which is is sorta like scat except
the singer tries to sing like a BeBop Horn.......very all over the place ,
"playing" the voice like a instrument.......very JazzY!
 Lambert Henndricks and Ross a trio which is considered to be the best of
this style is worth checking out for an example ...
Soul ? oh yeah ....... she aint Ella but Ella aint Liz, honey!

  well...what's the fun in that? :) i like annoying the easily
  annoyable... since it's just a reiteration of musical content,
  there's no superharm done.

Slight correction:  Glasgow is not in England :)

Wow, they're visiting nearly one city per day!  I'm looking forward to
their Boston appearance.

contact so many people at once.  Here Go's. . . .

              Does anybody remember a documentary that aired on HBO in the
early eighties about the Coconut Grove Fire?  Dick Cavet narrated? If anyone
has a copy of it or just knows about it please write.

       I remember somebody saying that they thought that Warren had screwed
up the new Grenadine album.  I think it is one of the most amazing CD's of
1994 and I was wondering what brought you to this decision?  I am not saying
that your opinion wasn't valid because even Warren told me that he liked Goya
better. I am seriously just wondering?   THanKs!!!

Subject: New Cocteau/Mortal Coil/ DCD type band


I was reading December Alternative Press the other day, and towards the
back their was a half page ad for a new band called "Rosewater
Elizabeth", or "Rosemary Water-Something", or some similar permutation.
>From memory the ad describes their music as *not* being like Cocteau
Twins, This Mortal Coil or Dead Can Dance, but yet takes elements from
each of these influences to produce something where many others have
failed. Also goes on about deep emotional music. Has anybody heard this
band and can describe the music ?

For Eden fans, they've recently released a cd of demos and rarities on
an Australian label, not Projekt.

I heard a good Golden Palominos song recently. Does someone have a
disc/bio or could recommend what to get ?

This may be a bit off axis for the list (what isn't these days ?) I
recently heard some advance material from the forthcoming Poster Children
album. I hadn't heard anything from these guys (+ girl) beforehand,
just that they were punk/pop/rock, but 4 or 5 of the new songs
definitely hit 10/10 on the beautiful/melodious/noise scale. If you've
heard the song "Beautiful Things" by the New Zealand band The 3D's
you'll know what I mean.
