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 :)

Sampled somewhere by Front 242 on the Front By Front album, I think.
Then there's Homer Simpson: "You know the saying, water, water everywhere, so
let's all have a drink!" -- "Homer, NO!!"

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?

Subject: 4AD auction prices


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
I've forgotten.

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.

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...

Just thought I'd mention another 4AD link, these guys used to be called

being the same as a (US?) group. Anyway, they supported TWP at their last

Subject: non-4ad/lanterna in LA


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!
