I saw a CD by a band called Sheer - note spelling - who were on Creation.
Are the same?
Also is Metamorphosis by Xymox any good.

It's "Sakura, Sakura". (In English, "Cherry-blossom, cherry-blossom")

I've recently gotten mesmerized by them Slowdive folks, and currently am
looking to acquire as much of their stuff as I can sniff out here in the
backwaters of bucolia.
I've seen much chatter and adjectives of praise heaped on 'Pygmalion' yet
it seems to be non-existant to the local would-be alterna-shop gurus. Is
it exclusive available via import? Is it even an import??
LIstening to Joy Division's "Closer" album last night, I suddenly heard:
"...the shouting is over, the procession has moved on.." or whatever it
is the Brenden croons in "The Carnival is Over". I'm musing if this was
an intentional nod or one of those wacky coincedence things. Has DCD ever
cited Joy Division as an influence?? Or could it all be quite organic:
two groups with sonorous male vocals over enigmatic instrumentation??
Ah, the deeper mysteries of life... go figure.

If a person wants to pay $ 30,- for the Lisa Gerrard 'The Mirror Pool' CD,
than it's his or her decision!! Let me be clear: I wouldn't pay $ 30,-
myself (there are 2,000 copies of this promo around) but I'm not calling
someone a fool if he or she wants to spend that amount on the disc!
By the way, the artwork of the regular jewel box edition CD is TOTAL CRAP
compared with the artwork of the triple-fold digipak promo edition!

hmm, tough question. i'd say no.
i love xymox (clan of and normal) but i just can't enjoy anything after
phoenix. pieter and anka left either before or during metamorphosis and
it shows. i can't tell you how disappointed i was when i got the brand
new import home and found a bunch of dorky dance beats. sold it a few weeks
later after only two listens. i have since rebought it to give it
another try, but i still think it's crap. I guess some people like it
and headclouds, but it's not for me. i'd say give it a listen in the

This is not the New Order list (is there such a list?), but since there are
a few real New Order buffs on this list, maybe someone can help me.
Today I picked up a CD copy of the new, maybe pointless, but still great,
New Order compilation: 'The Rest Of New Order'. Actually, the limited
edition double-CD. It comes in a '2CD' slime line jewel case.
When you open the case and lift up the tray and look at the inside of the
left spine (something you should ALWAYS do when you buy a double-CD!), you
can see, in very tine type:
19.6.93 - 17.7.94
The '-' is in fact a heart (unfortunately I can not make that character with
the e-mail program I use).
What do these two dates mean?

Twist Of Shadows was the last Xymox album I thought had anything
good about it, and even that was clearly the beginning of the end.
But basically for me, it's usually _Medusa_, or nothing.
The first 4AD album is pretty good, but I can only stand
"A Day" and (even worse) "Stranger" for short times. I never
liked New Order that much... :)

It's funny how some people cannot tell the difference between my ordering
someone to do something, and my thinking them foolish if they choose to
despite my *suggestion*. And so I shall reply to the more intelligent

I don't remember slagging the song exactly, though I might have. I have
since heard the entire album and it is by turns brilliant and beautiful
then obnoxious and irritating. It is all very retro and concept, and it
is an unflinching country and western album, but I recommend it, albeit
with considerably less enthusiasm than the Lisa Gerrard album (which,
incedentally, boasts crap artwork in both its formats).

Forget the title--buy it for the artwork! It's gorgeous. Gorgeouser e'en
than King its merry self. Which to this mind is saying something indeed.

I haven't gotten any mail from the list since August 15 and I'm not sure why.
I forgot the protocol to re-subscribe so if someone would be willing to
send it on over I'll be your best friend.
Thank you and goodnight.
Oh yeah, I've got an invitation to the Tarnation Record Release Party at
Bottom of the Hill on Tuesday August 22. If one of you South Bay kids wants
to drive I'd be more than happy to let you have my +1. I'm not actually sure
how many people can get in on one invitation, but I'll look into it tomorrow.
Paula Frazer will be performing acoustic and there'll be loads of posters and
stuff. Plenty of Schmoozing with the local Radio and Record Company kids
(incl. 4ADs wonderful promotions guru Rich Holtzman), too.
Since my e-mail is a bit sketchy you can give me a call at home (408)
374-3448 or at KSCU (408) 554-5728. Try me at home first and whoever answers
will tell you if I'm at the station or not. Thank you and goodnight.
