Oh well, it was a nice story, even if it was a joke.  :G)  On a similar
theme, although not truly 4AD-related (of course, what recent threads
*have* been?)...

I bought a copy of Main's _Hydra-Calm_ CD for a friend about a year ago
from Parasol.  Whenever it came, I took it right over to his place, and
he put it on.  The first few seconds passed, and the music coming from
the speakers was decidedly different from that found on my disc of the
same album.  Then a choir of children and adults..."okay, something is
obviously wrong here".  It wasn't until we heard a rather choirboyish
voice ask "please sir, may I have another?" that we realized that the
soundtrack to the "Oliver!" musical had been mispressed onto the disc by
mistake.  Not quite what we were expecting!

Tricky are quite reminiscent of Portishead, but I'd dare say better.
The album (name escapes me) was released domestically fairly recently
and it's on Island so it should be easy to find.

If you like P-head it's a pretty good bet you'll like Tricky.  They
have the same extensive sampling at P-head.  They even do one of the
same songs (complete with build in scratches and pops), revealing just
how much both versions owe to the original.  The female vocals are
fairly similar, with a lot of variety from song to song--perhaps a
little less "character" with Tricky.  They're even more
all-over-the-place stylistically (noisy, straight ahead, jazzy,
trippy, dancy, etc).  They tend to sound a bit more hip-hoppy and a
lot less spy-movie sound-tracky/tacky then P-head.  Great atmosphere.

I've listened to the disc a half dozen times and it's still growing on
me; a good sign.  Definitely worth checking out.

I consider Bel Canto pretty thislisty myself.  Anyway, they supposedly Bel
Canto have an album recorded and are just waiting to try to get the perfect
record contract.  I think they could do quite well ($wise) but wonder why
they haven't.  Is the public not ready for them?  Did the record companies
underhype them?  Who knows.  All i know is that i WANT that new album.

  No disrespect, but if you think jazz is dead.... you should check your
head. Also, if you put 10 or 15 years of your blood and sweat into
establishing and running a respectable label, you'd probably be concerned
about someone coming in from leftfield and using your name right? That
said, the fact still remains you can call them what you want.:^)

They are around quite some time right now. It's a project by Anton Fier
(producer, drummer) with changing cast. I have:

- Blast of silence
- A dead horse
- Drunk with passion
- Prison of the rhythm
- Pure
- This is how it feels
- Visions of excess

But there's still more! I really like 'Drunk with passion' the most.
Some early albums (CD) are hard to find, but there are now two compilations
with the early work.

the fact that I had sent mail to them before (actually, I sent mail to Slow-

Their email address is:  CREMKTG@cityscape.co.uk

Someone just has to know the answer to these inquiries:

1)Is the new Belly (uk) single for "Seal my Fate", and if so what's the cat.

2)Did 4AD (uk) release The Glee Club's _Mine_, or was it on Setanta there,
and licensed to 4AD in the US?

3)How obscure, or rather, difficult is it to obtain MBV-_S/T_ US release on
vinyl?

4)I saw yesterday, a Frank Black release entitled _the Black Sessions_, which
was *suprise* in a black jewel case, with a 'Made in Holland' sticker on it.
 I'm assuming that this is his last release to be affiliated with 4AD, and
elektra, yes?

Both of you: Is this the style here or what?

To einexile: Actually I got more information out of Erics` letters than from
your daily insults....so I am quite sure whose presence is needed here!
Maybe you should look out for a different mailing list or open up one, like:
alt.misc.rude

To Eric: Next time, just be more careful. You apologized and I guess that is
just fine...pobably the last word has to be spoken by *k-j*.

Thanks for taking time to read this statement,

that could be why (close together) that they sound similar to you! i
bought both when each came out and by time Ardor came out, it struck as
moving in a totally differnt direction... before that they always
struck me as sort of "ethnic" i'm not even sure if that's it the word.
but now it seems alot more... i don't know! just something different,
like the use of English for one thing hehe :)  both are still great
albums though.

         well I wouldn't say that far from the case...Tricky's
         song "Hell Is 'Round The Corner" is almost an exact
         copy of the last song on Portisheads' "Dummy". Also
         ...Tricky just re-used two of the songs off of Massive
         Attacks "Protection" and put them on his album with him
         either rapping a little differently or having Martine
         sing instead...he turned "Karmacoma" into "Hell Is 'Round
         the Corner", and the first song off of "Maxinquaye" is
         another song off of "Protection" that I can't remember.
         They do all have their subtle differences but, they do
         all sound pretty much the same...

What do I think of the new LSD?  NOt as good as the first.  I sampled it
at a local record store and while their were some interesting pieces
there, it was nothing like the first one "Idylls".  Oh well, I guess we
can just explain it as the usual sophomore effort jinx.

>I don't own anything by DCD and am looking for a place to start ...

People have already suggested A Passage in Time, which is an okay sampler
of their previous work.  It's got its moments, but it omits many songs that
are much better, IMO.  My favorite non-compilation album is Within the
Realm of a Dying Sun, which has three *great* songs by Brendan and four
-=>***GREAT***<=- musical epics by Lisa.

>Pretty much the same with CT, I own Blue Bell Knoll (alright, but it's
>not one of my faves).  How's Treasure?  Any others you can recommend?

Treasure starts out ... uhm, musically "dense" I guess you could call it.
I haven't really gotten a similar response out of fellow CT fans here (all
two of them), but to me, the first four songs have an edge to them -- Liz's
voice is harsh at times, she almost wails at others, and the accompanying
sounds are very rock-y, at least to me.  That said, they are infinitely
more accessible than anything off of Garlands (their first), but I really
didn't see much of a progression from Head Over Heels (their second and the
album prior to Treasure).  Also, starting with the fifth song, Pandora,
they enter a realm of fairy-tale, fragile, beautiful music.  It's almost
like two different albums to me.

Anyway, neither Treasure nor BBK are my favorites.  That honor goes to
Victorialand, which is basically (to my ears) a continuation of the
fairy-tale landscape they composed at the end of Treasure, but they got rid
of the drums and just went crazy with the texture and layers.  I worship
it.

Of course, you probably don't understand anything I've just written and
everyone who does probably thinks I'm babbling gibberish.  Failing a
semester brings out the critic in me, I guess.

Subject: _Trip Hop Test_


I like my copy a lot, but I stole it so I didn't have any high expectations
of it to earn out the money I spent on it.  Overall, it's a LOT more
techno influenced than Portishead and not terribly listy.  Most of the
songs are faster and less jazzy than Portishead and Massive Attack.
That said, the Portishead remix of Paul Weller's "Wild Wood" so
incredibly good that I like it better than most of the songs on _Sour_!
The St. Etienne song is also quite good, with the vocalist from "Calico"
and a Jah-Wobble-by-way-of-the-Orb sample.  Skylab's "Seashell"
and Tranquility Bass's "They Came in Peace" are moderately listy by
way of their noise level, slowness, jazzyness, melodic content, and
general weirdness, I suppose, but the rest of the album is pretty
much slightly slow acid techno/house with moderate breakbeats.
That said, some of that is mighty good too, if you're into it.
Specifically check out the The Dust Brothers' (now known as the
Chemical Brothers instead of The Dust Brothers UK after some legal
hassle with the original hiphop Dust Brothers of Beasties fame) song,
"My Mercury Mouth," Step Disk's "Boing Dragon," and The Crystal
Method's "Dubiliscious Groove.  Overall, since I don't know your taste
(Jacob Paul Leonard, the man with three first names), I'd recommend
that you listen to it before purchasing, if possible.

Has anyone else out there managed to get a copy of the Liquorice 7" on the
Simple Machines label?

It features 3 songs, "Stalls", "Artifacts", and "Squawk of the town".

The last town has what appears to be a 'sample' of Elizabeth Fraser.  It is
unmistakeably Liz, and since there is no credit to her doing baking vocals on
the 45 sleeve, i can only assume these vocals are sampled.  However, I cannot
place which song it is they are sampled from.

It is, nonetheless, a very beautiful song... for those of you who haven't
heard Liquorice yet, you're in for a treat!!
