  While looking through the "pay us a dollar and take it out of our

Since I had the misfortune of getting sick on the best concert night of the
season here in DC, can Steve or someone else who saw the Dirt Eaters/Tone
show at Atlantis post a review?  It would be greatly appreciated by us
unfortunate shut-ins.

Thanks, BTW, for the sage advice I got from Defever lovers about my DE vs.
Dirty Three quandry.

Hiding in the small print of the "forthcoming techno stuff" column in
yesterday's NME was the momentous announcement that Mark "Seefeel"
Clifford and Liz "Wounded Dolphin" Fraser have recorded an album, which
will be out on Warp early next year, preceded by a couple of singles in
ambient style from MC.

anybody heard the Garbage LP yet?
I've been wearing a hole in Sharks Patrol These Waters

My Ayn Rand anecdote.  Years ago I pulled Atlas Shrugged
off my friends bookshelf, opened to the first page and
read the first sentence:  "Who is John Galt?", then
I put the book back.  Years later I'm playing Trivial Pursuit
and our team is asked the question, What Ayn Rand novel starts
with the question, "Who is John Galt?".  Now most people playing
the game, asked, "Who is Ayn Rand?" (so, I hang around with morons,ok?)
I answered, "Atlas Shrugged".  People thought I was genius, I didn't
discourage them.

The LISA GERRARD performance will take place in the  Saint  Alphonsus  church
Atehenium Rectory Theatre. The church is located on the corners of Lincoln,
Southport and Wellington.

The date is November 17, 1995.  It is slighty larger than the Park West.
About 1,000 tickets will be sold.

Subject: SCHEER 7" - Did I miss out on anything?

Just got the Scheer promo 7" from 4AD mail order and it didn't have a cover
on it at all.  It just had that black paper inner sleeve with the holes in it
so you can read the lables.  The kind they use for the bonus 7" for a 12" lp.
 Just wondering if there is in fact a cover for this.

As for the music, I had heard that it was *heavy*, heavier than the pixies
someone said (yikes!).  Well, it *is* heavy......not in the pixies/post-punk
sense, but......um, in the *heavy metal* sense of the word (high school
flashbacks - double yikes!!).  It is very *rawk*.  Maybe due to the fact they
are live demo recordings (I assume recorded in one shot)  Maybe it's the
drummer and those damn open high-hats.  I dunno.  I'm just getting tired of
the pearljamification of the radio airways.  Who knows, I may eventually like
it, these things do have a way of growing on me.  The female vocals are the
saving grace for me.  I'd like to hear what they sound like on the samplers.
 When is a propper release coming?

Country? Metal?  Whats next, Rap?

As confused as ever,
Rodney

Subject: Lisa Germano on Anon Compilation

Just saw an ad in the new Alternative Press for an "art/music"
compilation on Castle von Buhler records.  It's a double CD set,
including Lisa Germano, Eardrum (with Cranes guitarist Mark Francombe),
Cake Like, Edsel, sirensong, An April March, and "others from Boston,
Endland, and Canada."  The design looks very v23-ish.  It's apparently
going to be released in the next week or so.  It also includes 31 full
color cards and 1/2 the proceeds will go to an AIDS Action Committee
artist/musician fund.  The Lisa track is called "Angels turn to Devils"
if my memory serves correct.  It's being distributed by Feedback in the US
and by Ossia in Europe.  I could post the address, etc. if there seems to
be enough interest on the list.  The ad's on page 92 of the Oct. AP

Shameless plug:  If you turn a few pages from that ad to page 100, you
can see a review of my former band's tape under the heading "In Loving
Memory."  The tape is available for $5.00 ppd. and *everything* but the
cost of the cassette and the postage is being donated to AIDS charities.
The band ended prematurely due to the death of our singer/guitarist from
AIDS.  If you're interested, drop me a line!

Yeah, i've heard she's very good and she's considered the muse of epic
poetry.  She lives on some mountain (Parnassus) in Greece.  I didn't know
she had a CD out, but it only makes sense.

I think Henry Frayne of M7x plays a Gibson SG - at least that's what it
looks like to me in their video.

But what's the tonal difference between Fender Jazzmasters, Jag's, and
Strats?  A Fender is a Fender is a Fender, huh?

        There's a lot of differences tonally between all of these, thanks
to the pick-up designs. Jags have a very dark, mid-rangey, dinky sound,
while Jazzmasters tend to have a warmer and brighter sound, due to the
wider spacing of the pick-ups' pole pieces; the wider the spectrum, the
warmer the sound...or something like that.    noah

Yes i have heard it and Vow is the best track.  I'm still deciding on
the value of purchasing the whole thing when Vow, at the moment is
really the only track that stands out.  I would suggest that you give
it a listen before buying, it is one of THOSE types of releases.

and now for thislisty

still say Lisa Gerrard and voice rival that of some of the operatic
singers of today.  The resonance and timber of her tone is absolutely
incredible.  I appluad her for releasing such a artistic endeavor.
Here, here!
