Do any of you L.A. area listies know about any decent upcoming shows?
I'm going to be in L.A. from the 17th-24th, and I'm hoping to do some-
thing with my time other than job-hunting :)

I buy lots of these used! Many of my CDs have that promotional message stamped
on them in gold. Let's hear it for unscrupulous radio DJ/record execs!

In this sense the LIAE video is quite an admirable accomplishment; it's full
of water, and yet it cost much less to make than that Kevin Costner movie...
Anyone know which song this quote was sampled in?

I've heard it before... maybe Iron Maiden...
Isn't it disgusting?

I find it odd that some people on the list think that there is some kind of
absolute value on 4AD items. I strongly disagree. 4AD stuff (like
everything) is worth whatever people will pay for it. Or, in capitalist
terms, "what the market will bear." Socialists and communists rejected
Marx's labor theory of value long ago.
On the other hand, it is really easy to get sucked into bidding in an
auction a lot more than you would otherwise pay. I believe there's a
specific name for this phenomenon. I think I heard it on Lovejoy once, but
But, as one of the more aggressive bidders on the list, I do feel good to
see people pay even more than I would for something!
By the way, the "AVAM" and "No Balls" bids are nothing. Check out those
1986 poster set bids. Wow! I'm glad I got mine already, as I'm sure that
even I would have dropped out by before reaching $200.00.

Sorry everyone, but what does "AVAM" stand for, and what is it?

OOPS, sorry about that last blank message.
Anyone heard the Cardigans' "Life" yet?
Also, I was listening to the radio (a rare event) and
heard a new Mazzy Star song. Great, waited for the announcer
to give me info and he said it was the Innocence Mission.
Not to slag them, but I honestly have never heard them before
and honestly thought it was Mazzy Star...
So what did Jerry Garcia die from?

Just thought I'd mention another 4AD link, these guys used to be called
the Dust Brothers until recently. The change was forced by their name
being the same as a (US?) group. Anyway, they supported TWP at their last
London gig at the Jazz Cafe.

I did not say it wasn't true, and (I knew this was going to happen) YES I
know the 'body shop' doesn't carry hand towels, and YES each BS has 15
employees instead of three, and YES I know I fell twice and failed to
mention, but but...I thought I could make it *riveting* by changing a few
minor facets. Damn the critics!! Damn the critics!!

I just wanted to post something about the Lanterna CD that was just
released on Parasol. It is mostly instrumental, ambient stuff. Brendan
of M7X plays drums on much of it, I play guitar...
In the last week the only radio copy we sent was put into rotation at KCRW
in Los Angles, a big sort of public station. Since then Parasol has gotten
orders from a few of the "better" record stores in the area. If you are
interested in checking out the CD or want to bug record store staff it is
available at Rhino, Tower, Aron's, Penny Lane, and Poo Ba. The packaging is
letter pressed by Bruce at IPR and is really cool.
I'm sure I'll get in trouble for listing this but Parasol's # is 217 355-2555.
or just mail me. Maybe this will start a real buzz... naaaa!

This has nothing to do with the auction, but ...
Does anyone know why I can no longer send mail to the list? I keep
getting and illegal host/domain message, saying that email@example.com is
an unknow host. Huh?
