My first question about rhp was quickly answered by other listmembers.
But nobody has touched the second, and that's what I really want to
know.  So here it is again.  What the heck happened to the other demos
that down colorful hill was taken from?  Were they later used on the two
self titled albums or are there more wonderful songs still unreleased?
Does anyone have these?  If so I'd love a copy.  Come on, please?

Subject: Young Gods-Only Heaven


    Someone mentioned this new album about two weeks ago on the list.
Having heard rumours about it myself for a while I could not wait to
lay my hands on it.  I finally did this week.  Although it is good, I
was a bit disappointed.  Musically it lies somewhere between L. Rouge
and their self titled debut album.  It is a must for all Young Gods
fans, but those who have not yet acquired any of their music and want
to, would be advised to rather spend their money on earlier releases.
The Young Gods' music however still remain premier 'going-out' music.
Nothing like their schizophrenic melodies(?) to get you in a
'hooligan' mood while you're warming up for a night out. >;->
    Also, most of Franz's lyrics on 'Only Heaven' are sung in English.

one so it's still around. You could find out more from Brandon Capps, the guy

*waugh* You're throwing me into the depths of Colourbox Deprivation

Does anybody on this list live in the New York area? If I send you a

while making a new album? I mean, they have been slacking off for,
uhm, eight years, denying the world their talents. Shame on them.

Agreed. It's very slightly disappointing, but look at the brilliant albums
we're comparing it to.

I saw the Red House Painters at The Chameleon in 1991 or 92 -- I
remeber it was summer and it was before they released their first
album -- and because I always buy local band stuff, I remember trying
to find something from them, and never finding anything.  Local
college radio stations didn't have anything either 'cause I remeber
calling and asking at leat 4 stations to play something.  My guess is
that their demo was for sending to labels only and as far as I know,
those six songs were the only songs they had recorded at the time,
and they were "cleaned up" a little by Ivo and released as _Down
Colorful Hill_.

I tried to see Tarnation in Palo Alto a couple months ago, but got
there too late and missed them, I tried to find their demo too --
because I KNOW they had one -- but never got one of those either...

Anyway, no one answered my question regarding the name of the
instrumental piece at the end of "Drop" on _Ocean Beach_, I know it
was discussed a few months ago, but I can't access the archives to
find it. Can someone help me out, please? and thank you!

I must agree with Janice on this one. As an 11 stone bloke, I had to give
away my 4AD t-shirt to my ex-boyf (who then shagged some bastard indie
record company type while wearing it) 'cause it was so voluminous.
Similarly, when I followed the Cocs  around on their last UK tour, I bought
the blue Heaven.... t-shirt in size large at the Liverpool Royal Court, got
it home and found I could rent it out for outdoor events and impromptu open
air music festivals as a marquee, it was so HUGE.

At the T&C gig I bought a medium long sleeve black Cocs... T, and,
surprise, surprise, had to give it to a short female friend to wear as a
dress, because although the size was ok round the chest, it was down to my
knees almost (and at 5'11" that wasn't my fault).
You don't get this problem with New Order merchandise, I can tell you.

Fat male muso nerds look silly anyway, so lets have more t-shirts in
hip-huggin' sizes for the more glamorous, sveldte and generally beautiful
amongst us!

And what the heckitty heck is the matter with plastic barettes? Don't you
know they're all the rage? Dear, oh dear, I think I'm going to have to
troll off to Smith & Westwood for a fabness recharge........

First, I wanted to make a plug for the new YOUNG GODS album, "Only Heaven."
It came out yesterday and is, of course, totally brilliant.  A bit different
from previous outings....

-- more percussive than anything they've done before;
-- some isolationist ambient influence (e.g., Main, Scorn, etc.);
-- definately better than the relatively weak "T.V. Sky" album.

Check it out!

*******************************

Second, someone mentioned that they were followed by several people after
checking "Foucault's Pendulum" out of the library.  Perhaps it was a joke or
paranoia, but be aware that if it did happen, your rights were violated.
Records of what you check out at the library or rent at a video store are by
law private.

However, that doesn't stop people from violating your privacy.  I personally
know of two cases of right-wing groups trying to obtain information on what
people read and watch (one from a video store in which I worked and one from
a library my mother worked at).  They actually came into the library and
video store and said, "I'd like a record of everyone who checked out these
items...."  If you suspect that someone has gotten access to your library or
video store record, complain immediately.  Sometimes, people don't know that
those records are private and you can protect yourself just by letting them
know.

I disagree here, I thought "TV Sky" was a *very* solid album. "Only Heaven" is
good but it doesn't (yet) seem as well-rounded. I know it'll grow on me,
though. Can't wait for the concert this weekend... the last tour was the last
really good concert I've been to!

That's right, it's 'Brockwell Park Pt. 2', but that title only appeared on
the Canadian and US press releases. It (the title, not the music) was left
off from the actual tracklist on the 'Ocean Beach' CD, MC and 2x10".

Nah, it doesn't sound that much like Nopalitos.  Nopalitos has more ...
umm... 'style', Liquorice has more ... "songs".

I wouldn't say 'scarce' either.  More like... subtle.  Always some crazy
stuff running around way, way in the background... and the instrument and
vocal sounds are really good & clean.

*I'd* give it an A+, and say buy it right away.

Where can you find the Slowdive EP?  It's the only thing left I need to

Subject: latest release schedule


This is the current 4AD release schedule:

22 August -- Tarnation "Gentle Creatures"
22 August -- Lisa Gerrard "The Mirror Pool"
12 September -- Air Miami "Me Me Me"
25 September -- Lush ep (uk only)
2 October -- Scheer ep (uk only) "Schism"
17 October -- Mojave "Ask Me Tomorrow"
16 January -- Scheer lp
16 January -- Heidi Berry lp
February -- Lush lp
February -- Lisa Germano "The Love Circus"
March -- Brendan Perry solo or Dead Can Dance album

On the phone info line an album by Tammy & the Ants (Kim Deal solo)
was listed for 24 October, but Rob didn't mention it when he gave me
the revised schedule. Scheer are apparently the heaviest band by far
4AD has ever signed. "A lot heaver than the Pixies," says Rob.
Brendan Perry has scrapped most or all of his solo album and has not
been doing any recording since. The Mojave album is going to be nothing
like Slowdive (even though it IS Rachel and Neil). It's going to be
more like (gulp!) Mazzy Star, with slide guitar. Tarnation is
country-ish, sorta like Patsy Cline (so says Rob), and I think the
phone recording also mentioned Nick Drake (surprise). The Wolfgang Press
have indeed left 4AD, the split happening amicably on both sides
(I can't confirm the rest of the rumor about them running up a huge tab).
A single featuring 2 Scheer demos was Melody Maker's single of the
week a while ago, and this single is available for 1 pound sent to
Scheer, Freepost LON 485, London, SW18 1BR. The Air Miami album is
produced by Guy Fixsen from Laika. And finally the 4AD Web site
is coming along.

I don't see the Slowdive EP anywhere except in peoples collections.  Are
you looking for a copy?   The one I have is still for sale.  I'll let
you have it for $15+$1.50 (shipping and Mailer).  Let me if you are
interested in it.  Also do you have the Blue flexi with the songs Take me
down and Beach song on it?  I have that still if you are interested.

I'll talk to you soon.

Dave

PS - I have a slowdive page that has all the covers scanned in.  I'm in
the process of moving the page at the moment, but it should be up and
running in a day or two. I'll give you the address if you are interested.

Subject: i found a goldmine!


   hello everybody. i just to-day returned from a weeklong vacation in
   chicago and i found a great record store with quite a few 4ad rarities
   for you. i made a list rather than buying and selling them to people
   here as i didn't want to put too much on my credit card; i found a lot
   of stuff for myself there. anyways, here is the list:

   the v23 anatomy calendar - $39.99. it was still in it's original box,
   though the box looked a bit beaten. were these sent through the mail?
   the box looked as if it had been handled by the delicate hands of u.p.s.

   mai pen rai - $24.99. it was the burgundy cover and looked to be in very
   good condition.

   the tmc u.s. cd sampler - $19.99. the one in the digipak.

   lonely is an eyesore cad D 703 - $29.99. the one in the sort of slipcase
   with the booklet.

   a cocteau twins u.s. sampler lp - $33.99. i had never seen this before,
   but it had a very nice cover. i don't remember the tracks, but i'm
   fairly sure it had 'the high monkey monk' and 'dials,' two of the
   "unreleased" tracks in the boxed set.

   -

   i thought the prices seemed reasonable for some of these, especially
   as i've seen 'mai pen rai' selling for $79 before.

   the record store was:

   reckless records of london
   3157 north broadway
   chicago, il.  60657
   phone: 312.404.5080

   and they said they do mail order, so hurry up and call them!


your man on the streets,

There are *three seperate stores* here in Cincinnati with copies of the
CT boxed set, none costing over $45. (In fact, I think Wizard has 2.)
$200 is a complete and total rip. (I paid $70 for mine in the hell that
is Albuquerque, NM. Sigh.)
