I hadn't gotten any digests for a couple of days until last night.
I was surprised to see that no one mentioned that the Towne Theater
in San Jose is screening Toward The Within this week. It plays with
Anima Mundi (Philip Glass soundtrack).

I saw it last night and there were only about 30-40 people (which
it about 1/2 full for this postage-stamp-sized theater). Acceptable
sound system, small screen, virtually all seats too close.

The audience was deathly quiet (good for music appreciation, not
for recreating concert ambience). A smattering of applause after
two or three songs. My girlfriend fell asleep. I'm embarassed to
say I did too...

I've met Kelly a couple of times (during a brief Safari tour and at the

acid. She always seemed a little overwhelmed bythe "rock star" persona, but
heroin? I don't think so. She's not even from Seattle.

        Besides the Papa Brittle and Consolidated, I just picked up some
Jack Dangers remixes of David Byrne's "Back in the Box", off David's latest.
Let me also say that the Jack Dangers remixes of Byrne's "Ava" (off the
Forestry Ep) are great.  Essential for followers of Meat Beat.  (The
A.R. Kane remixes are just so-so.)  I have no idea what the Byrne/Dangers
connection is.
        Some other good Dangers remixes:

        David Bowie's "Pallas Athena (Don't Stop Praying Mix)"
                      "You've Been Around (Dangers remix)"
        MC 900 Ft Jesus "Killer Inside Me (MBManifestations 1 & 2)"
        Coil "The Snow (Answers Come In Dream 1 & 2)"

        I've also seen his work with Depeche Mode though I've never been
able to stomach buying a Depeche single.  Any other recommendations?

Too bad!  ;)  Tonight in Cambridge, Mass it was packed (about 120-150).
Quiet though, as we should have been.  Some cheering in the back during
credits for the timpany player who kept jumping around, and some cheering
from Robert Perry adorers ;)

I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I hadn't seen the video.  I now know what
instruments are played on the songs, which is really cool!  I know it's
wrong, but I truly thought that anyone (not just DCD fans) would love the
film :)

What is stupid about sending drugs through the mail? OTHER PEOPLE AREN'T
SUPPOSED TO LOOK IN YOUR MAIL!! That package could have been sent to
anyone. Was it ever cleared up at what point she was arrested, who sent
it, etc? I ignored everything in this thread with a subject like 'Kim
Deal arrested' so maybe I missed something...but I don't really care. The
fact of it pisses me off whatever the details were. I'll bet you every
single person on this list owns or uses or does *something* which they
could go to jail for. What's the point? Kelly Deal, a sure threat to
society if there ever was one. When the hell are people going to start
minding their own damned business?

You'd be surprised how many people use heroin who you'd never have
thought used it. Probably some of them are even decent human beings who
never hurt anyone...

Yeah, we're playing Swirlblade at our station too.  They're very nice.
It's only an ep, believe it's called Starblood or something like that.

The third track is especially nice, can't think of the names of any of
the songs right now, tho.

I believe they are from Illinois, that's where the album was recorded,
anyway.

My friend who works at 4AD LA just gave me yesterday this wonderful new
4AD sampler (PRCD 7300) that was just shipped into the 4AD offices on
Wednesday.
It's called No Balls, and it's a bunch of tracks off of previous and
soon-to-be released albums.  Tracks include, in no order:


Air Miami - Airplane Flier
Heidi Berry - The Mountain
Dead Can Dance - Rakim
Pale Saints - One Blue Hill
Lisa Germano - Cry Wolf
Kendra Smith - Bold Marauder
and tracks from Wolfgang Press and Red House Painters, the titles elude
me atm.

As you can see, there is nothing on this sampler that any normal 4AD
maniac won't have eventually, but the artwork is really cool, and there
are a few tracks from albums that won't be out until summer 95, like Air
Miami, Kendra Smith and Heidi Berry.

Apparently, these tracks were all picked by Vaughan, according to my friend.

No extra tracks, nothing rare, but still nice to look at. :)

Ooooh, and I got this really neat 4AD pin too.... woo woo

              Leonard" at Jan 22, 95 05:41:00 pm

When it showed at the UC Theatre in Berkeley, CA, the show was preceeded
by the Godfrey Reggio-directed _Anima Mundi_, which is 30 minutes of
nonstop nature and wildlife footage set to the Philip Glass composition
by the same name.  It was quite wonderful, and complemented the actual
feature presentation of _Toward the Within_ perfectly.

Since we arrived just as the sneak previews were finishing, we had no idea
that _Anima Mundi_ wasn't part of the DCD production..."My, My, DCD never
ceases to surprise...they're becoming quite minimalist these days..."

While I'm at it, I'll take this opportunity to disagree with whoever said
they were so bored that they fell asleep during the show.  For me, having
listened to but never seen DCD for several years, it was simply amazing to
see how their music actually gets produced.  My only complaint was that
they changed the track ordering from that on the CD -- it threw me off
a little.

    This is for all of the people that asked me about Belly at Great

     X96 said that it will take place on Feb.15 at the county fairgrounds and
the line up is as follows.

    Belly
    The Murmurs
    Everclear
    The Obvious (a local band)

    There might be another band also!!

    It will start in the middle of the day but they are not sure what time.
There is a catch though.  Every year when they do this they tell you that you
have to win tickets by calling every 96 minutes and if they pick up, you win.
I have gone before without tickets and they have let me in but it might be
scary for out of staters. If you want to chance it like me (as I don't get
x96 in my town) I would love to meet some people from the list and you are
more than welcome to stay at my house.  It is two hours away from the BIG
city.  I drive it once a week so it's not that bad. I would love to see you.

Subject: swirlblade....why yes!


        To the person inquiring about Swirlblade:
           Yes, I am familiar with the band as I am close friends with the
members of the band. The band is comprised of two guys and one gal from
Chicago and Barrington, respectively. They were originally called "The End"
and recorded( as they still do) on the Sirens Isle Label. The name was
changed over legal complications. Swirlblade tour mostly around the Chicago
area, although I managed to get them to come to my school, Indiana University,
last year to do a student radio sponsored gig( when they still were called
"The End"). They don't very much care to classify their music in any way,
although I've always felt it was very 4-adish...with strong influences dating
to the early 80's.

I already have the cd that was released in the States and as already

Well, 3 is SOME, not necessarily most, but all of the _artists_ were on AVAM.

I know any completists will probably want it anyway. It's one of those
