Twin on my personal favourites list, but since the release of "Anti", they
have been on top. "Tri Repetae" compared to "...I Care Because You Do"? No
contest. Richard James has stated that he dislikes the overuse of common
drum machines, yet he habitually uses them. Autechre have gotten themselves

MTV Archives? Uh....well, I know MTV played "Evangeline" several times on
120 Minutes when Four-Calendar Cafe was originally released. As for "Cico
Buff", I have a copy of that video, as well. I think it came off VH1. It
seems that VH1 played the Blue Bell Knoll vids (the other being "Carolyn's
Fingers") more than did MTV.  "Cico Buff" is mostly just black and white,
and you only see vague shadows of the band against a stark white background
most of the time if even that. You just see Liz in profile from the shoulders
up (again, just a dark shadow on a white background). Very minimalist and
elegant, much like the song itself.

Anyway...I got my copy from someone else who had them all and made a
compilation that I bought.  Bootleg sort of a thing, you know.

  oh yeah...a xian vs. atheist discussion is SO unintelligent, as

Well, Gorden is the guy who left the band, right?  They introduced their new
guitar player, Phil, who seems like a pretty nice guy.  He apparently was
added recently -- he doesn't know all the songs yet and had to sit out for
a few.

Anyway, no, nobody else re-tuned to match Mark, interestingly enough.
Phil switched to a different guitar for one song, but I didn't see him
re-tune other than that.

Actually, "Take Me Out" is in standard tuning.  The chords are available
at mirrors.aol.com.  I think "New Jersey" is in standard also.

The tunings were listed on the set list that I acquired.  They were written
down so that the guitar technician could tune the guitars while they weren't
being played.  They always have the same guitar tech guy with them every
time Mark or RHP plays.  I forget his name -- Mark introduced him at his
solo San Francisco show a few months back.

Subject: Re: "alternative" is dead/Lush list


This is not a pointed remark, just an observation. "Alternative" is a
marketing term. It was dead the day it was coined.

Any record stores that separate "deemed alternative" artists from the rest of
the pack doing so for that majority of the record buying public who'd like to
run in, get their Offspring record and get out without the hassles of
actually discovering "not deemed alternative" music.

I mean Red House Painters are hardly alternative, they are more folk if
anything. But they really wouldn't sell if they were thrown into that bin. I
mean "Ocean Beach" is one of the best releases this year, but it wouldn't
push any units sitting next to Judy Collins. Don't fall for it kids. Some of
the  most priceless/innovative music in the world (Nick Drake, Big Star, Tim
Buckley and the Beatles) never had that "alternative" tag, and despite the
fact that most of my examples were recorded roughly two-three decades ago,
it's more innovative and "alternative" than about 75% of the crap that's
getting labeled thusly just so that it will sell to the laziest of our
demographic. Just a thought.

The Lush list is, I hate to say it, pure crap!!! Mostly "what color do you
think Miki will die her hair " and the like. It's not really a matter of
intelligence (I mean that whole theological debate on this list was, although
totally inappropriate, highly intelligent), but of substance. It's a full
list of people who can't think of anything to talk about.

        At the outset, I would like to define the way I use "alternative",
that is, to mean ACTUALLY alternative. I use it to describe any 4ad band,
including RHP, Projekt bands, other thislisty-type artists, but NOT, you
know, Pearl Jam, Live, Bush, ad nauseum.
        So in the 'real' sense, Red House Painters are definitely
alternative, you seem to say so yourself by acknowledging the fact that
they wouldn't sell if they were in the folk bin. To me, RHP are only
'folk' insofar as the instrumentation goes. Their music is leaps and
bounds beyond popular 'folk', and they definitely have a sound of their
own which I would not characterize as 'folk'.
        _Ocean Beach_ is not only my favorite RHP release, but my
favorite 4ad album I've yet heard, and my favorite album to come out
since The Ocean Blue's "Cerulean" in October 1991. Anyone agree?

Subject: Love Spirals Downwards' _Ardor_


        Last night I programmed a few songs from _Ardor_ while going to
bed (not really a part of the current "fall asleep to music" thread
because I can't actually fall asleep *while* listening to music, because a)
I'm a chronic insomniac and b) my mind is way too active while
music-listening), and a few things came to mind. Do you guys realize how
*good* this album is, and how superior it is to _Idylls_? I listened to
_Idylls_ a few days ago, and as always, too many of the songs just went
by as samey and inconsequential. _Ardor_ seems a far more polished,
better-produced work. It is just absolutely enchanting.
        I also realized how potentially accessible this album is. I can
really imagine people who don't listen to 'Alternative' (either
definition) being really enraptured by it (as long as they're not heavy
metal fans or something), which is usually not the case in trying to
'convert' the uninitiated to the real music we all know and love. Don't
you think so?

From: Roy Burns (RBNRy@AOL.COM)
Subject: Long response (not an attack) to Micah: "alternative" is dead



I LOVE the Red House Painters (and "Ocean Beach", but "Down Colorfull Hill"
is better). To me, they are one of very few bands that exist today that I
would say really touch people. They are more than simply a "band". They
aren't a way of life or anything, and I'm not obssessed with them, but they
are truly special to me. I wasn't by any stretch using folk as a derogatory
term, because, to me at least, it isn't.

"Alternative" is not a category of music like Jazz or Country or Blues, etc.
It really is a marketing term. I'm not the most open-minded person in the
world, but to me, someone who says that they only listen to "alternative"
music is about as close-minded musically as someone who only listens to top
40.

I'm sure that if you asked the Breeders, Tarnation, or say even the Red Hot
Chili Peppers (who annoy the hell out of me) what kind of music they played,
they wouldn't say "alternative". They'd either probably start rattling off
all kinds of musical styles and influences or just say "rock-and-roll" and
leave it at that.

True, Red House Painters aren't Peter, Paul, and Mary and Dead Can Dance
aren't world music. But both owe a lot to those respective genres of music.
If you listen to Nick Drake (who himself really stretches folk music), you
will definitely hear the Red House Painters. Whether or not they were
directly influenced by them, I don't know. But it's for damn sure they
weren't weened on a steady diet of the Essence.

In fact, if you ever talked to most bands about the musics that shaped them,
you'd probably be horrified. Important bands, even ones that borrow heavily
from their influences, are important because they stretch and change and
bring themselves, in addition their influences, to their music.

Ocean Blue are a very fine band, but they are nothing new. They certainly
aren't the Red House Painters. And that is probably because they spent the
first part of their career ripping off Echo and the Bunnymen (as I understand
it though, Ocean Blue, without a label to support them, are now creating some
of the best music that they ever have).

Not every band on 4AD is a great band, but to say that 4AD only puts out
"alternative" music is false. They put out music, which they believe in (and,
in most cases, music that will sell--let's face it, they are a business and
could not survive if they only put out music they purely liked). Most of it
is a bit eclectic and therefore doesn't sell tremendous amounts, therefore it
is marketed as "alternative". But if Red House Painters had platinum sales
figure, they'd be filed right next to Pearl Jam and the like.

Needless to say, if the Green Day singles you bought before everyone in the
world had heard of them really touched you, it shouldn't matter where they
are filed in the record store, what radio station listens to them, or if they
are in heavy rotation on MTV (I think Nirvana was an important band and they
are hardly alternative or underground or whatever).

"Alternative" is the first genre term that I can think of that really
encompasses a lot of different musical styles. You should venture outside of
the "alternative" realm every now and then. You will be guaranteed to find
music just as relevant and important.

Tim Buckley's "Lorca" or Nick Drake's "Pink Moon" or Big Star's "Third" or
even Bruce Springsteen's "Nebraska", this is all music that you won't find in
your local record store's "alternative" bin. But if bands like Cocteau Twins,
Dinosaur Jr., Pavement, The Breeders and the Red House Painters only listened
to the Cure, The Moon Seven Times, and Depeche Mode (who I think are all good
bands), they, most likely but not impossibly, would not be as good or as
important as they are.

I don't mean to preach, but I've been around music long enough to know that
I'll listen to whatever touches my soul. When I was fifteen, it was Joy
Division. When I was 20 it was The Roches and Nick Drake. Now that I'm 24
it's all that and more.

No offense *k-j*, as I know you didn't write this, but does anyone else
find Time Stereo's descriptions borderline-useless?  I recently received a
new sheet from them, and I know which ones have Warren Defaver on them.
I'll post them when I remember to bring the list with me.  Tapes are $5.00
ppd, make checks out to "The Record Collector," not "Time Stereo."  I just
had a check returned b/c it was made out to ts.  Just thought I'd help.

This got me to thinking, perhaps someone could compile a little list of
some of the 4AD releases that people are desperate for.  I would
certainly be willing to print out my copy of this little list and do a
quick look at the local record store as a favor to some of my fellow
4ADers.  actually sounds kinda fun.  wouldn't it be neat to find that a
copy of something like the Dirt Eaters EP was in the neighborhood bargin
bin, like where I found mine (no, you can't have it).

I always listen to music when I sleep, including much of what you said.
But one of my favorites has always been Zen Arcade by Husker Du.  Perhaps
on first listen this doesn't seem like it would work, but I have found
after you're familiar with it, it's great.  Although lately I have been
listening to books on tape instead (Douglas Adams is good, and Tolkien)
