Seriously, you can order all of them.  It takes anywhere from two weeks to

Yes, exactly.  We need to separate the genesis of the *term* "grunge" from
the *grunge sound*.  I grew up in Seattle in the 80's.  I saw Green River
and Soundgarden live AND grouped them and Nirvana as a largely
retro-movement in the black sabbathesque vein.  Especially since their
listenership were largely (but not solely) grimy metal-listening white
adolescent males.  I can't help but think that this is the genesis of the
*term* "grunge" though i can't even remember when i first heard the term.
I'm sure someone has a more definitive knowledge of the origins of the term
but my point is simply that i don't think anyone at the time considered
this to be a completely independent musical "sound."  Of course they
borrowed from metal, punk, and quasi-metal bands from the past.

hi, all:

loved lawren's faqs--thanks very much for the info.  still, i'm left with a
couple of questions:

1)can someone give me a rundown of all artists currently signed to 4ad (who
they are/where they came from/what their music's like)?  it was hard enough
until to keep up until bands started splintering, signing one-off deals, etc.

2)where can i find a current list of all 4ad releases for the year to date?

sorry if these are lame-ass questions to you hardcore listies, but i've been
on here for a month or so and haven't seen reference to them, so i thought
i'd ask.  thanks in advance for your help.

OK forget the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (does anyone even remember
them?) because *Luminescence* is unrelated to *Radioactivity*.
Luminescence is caused by the absorption of light and re-emission without
nuclear breakdown and often without even chemical breakdown.  It is as
harmless as the light that it emits (yes, visible light is relatively
harmless).  Radioactivity is the consequence of atomic instability and can
be harmful.

Let me get this straight.  So here's your guys' arguments (paraphrasing):

1) Folk Sucks,
2) RHP don't suck,
3) Therefore they're not folk.

OR

1) An "average folk fan" is unaccustomed to occasional lacerating guitar noises
2) RHP have occasional lacerating guitar noises
3) "Average folk fans" would not recognize this as their beloved folk music
4) Therefore it's not folk music.

        I'm neither a fan of folk music NOR average but i can't help but
find this reasoning strange.  What's this tremendous need to CLASSIFY.  I
know that we need to classify things to **some extent** to convey ideas of
music in a written form but do we really need to divide them into such neat
piles that there can be no overlap, no ambiguity?  Why can't we just say
that RHP are folk *influenced* whether we file them in the "Alternative"
bin or not?

Cocteau Twins - Twinlights

I was wrong. I thought this was very beautiful when I heard it in a
record store. Maybe I heard something different, but I have it now and
it's kind of a big piece of junk. Is this Robin Guthrie playing the
piano? He certainly hasn't been taking lessons from Harold Budd. The
style is that of a Billy Joel ballad, or the Nordstrom's guy just after
Christmas. "Rilkean Heart" really goes nowhere; in fact the entire ep is
basically the same few seventh chords over and over in a loop, with
little variation and none of the darkness you hope for. It's almost
infuriating. "Golden-Vein" is even moreso because it throws you back and
forth between distinct branches of the song but never with any satisfying
high point or resolution, only the occasional maudlin cliche you would
hear in an embarrassingly sentimental movie or a very sad video game. Liz
is particularly nice on "Pink Orange Red" but the track is such
Victorialand fodder as to be nearly worthless. At least it has a
recognizeable chorus that doesn't lead you in neverending circles like
Your Ghost with its head cut off. It really does sound like they took
tapes of Liz off the cutting room floor and pasted them together here.
Totally uninteresting, and a tremendous disappointment after Lifeforms
and even "Need-Fire" and even Foul Catheter Cave. "Half-Gifts" is more
Billy Joel, more inept piano playing and loser Cure strings. I can
picture Judge Dredd slumped over his keyboard, an empty bottle of cheap
wine just barely hanging from his limp grip...Christ, there's that word!
She said RELATIONSHIP, huhuh huh huh huhhuhuh...

Bleagh.

At least the artwork is good. Very white, with colored pencil or
watercolor? drawing of rose stems and a flower or two, reminds me a bit
of Sara Midda but with a distinct style. Actually I guess they are
photographs? Whatever. That and a nice new curly logo and nice curly
squiggle scribbles that are decidedly non-v23 but still classy. Oh well.
Still bleagh.

*** this article concern "alison's halo" ***

I'm photographer recently joined this list :-)

in recent day, i luckily got a alison's halo's limited "Dozen"e.p. at last.
i was looking for it throughout a year. that works precisely tell me that
some established status of highest sentiment. in short it hit me. included
two songs are both desparately beautifull, tiny jacket work (but it's not
like v23's one) as well as songs.

and.... once i'd read an article that noticed alison's halo contact address
and how to get their works on this 4AD-L. it was written under a name of
'adam' that probably guiterist and song composer of the alison's halo
theirselves.

so i made a contact with adam and could knew how to get. but unfortunately
my macintosh was broke and data was gone in last week. also conatct data is
without exception.

if you know alison's halo contact address, please note me. i hope adam read
this.

thanx in advance.

P.S. does someone know of kind of web things consern alison's halo?

Subject: Cocteaus, Main, FSA


An uncommonly good day for singles, yesterday:

Cocteau Twins - Twinlights EP (Fontana, CTCD3)
Rilkean Heart / Golden-Vein / Pink Orange Red / Half-Gifts

Sleeve is by "Blue Source", photography (of rose stems) by Nick
Knight.  Also available as a double 7" pack, each 7" is in its own
sleeve with a larger sleeve to contain both.  Nice artwork - Blue
Source are also responsible for the very different artwork on the new
Pulp single, which I haven't had a chance to listen to yet.  A card
inside says that the "ambient EP Otherness is available 26th October".

Others have commented on the music already, I'll just add a "wow!" to
the pile (and ignore e's mithering, please!).  Simple piano, Liz
singing without the aid of multi-tracking or effects, a little guitar
in the background, and some muted strings on the final song.
"Half-Gifts" is the closest in style to the "ripped out of a therapy
book" lyrical style of the last album, the first two songs are more
emotionally complex, and the stripped-down "Pink Orange Red" is simply
beautiful.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Main - Ligature (remixes) (Beggars Banquet, BBQM43CD)

Now available on CD, with three extra remixes of "Motion Pool" tracks,
all by Main (the five original remixes included a couple by Main, and
one each from Paul Schutze, Jim O'Rourke, and Paul Kendall).  A
bargain, at five quid for over an hour of music.  I bought Paul
Schutze's "Apart" at the weekend, and was not over-impressed -
"Ambient" in the tinkly Eno sense rather than the darker, dronier stuff
I was expecting.  Not bad, but nothing to write home about either.

The fourth installment in the Hertz singles series is also out now,
"Haloform", in three parts.  It's far and away the best of the bunch so
far - part 1 features all sorts of odd noises (is that a frog sitting
in a disused sewer pipe?), parts 2 and 3 are closer to the "Motion
Pool" sound, droning instrumentals with treated guitar noises added.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flying Saucer Attack - Outdoor Miner / Psychic Driving (Domino, RUG41)

FSA have now officially Sold Out, as this single is also available on
CD, with last-but-one single "Land Beyond the Sun" / "Everywhere was
Everything" added (and I am extra-sad because I bought both formats).
I have always thought that Lush's cover of the Wire song was one of
their finest moments, and it's hard to listen to FSA's version without
imagining Emma and Miki singing in the chorus.  B-side is a sludgy
repetitive instrumental, and the two bonus songs on the CD are the
standard FSA "sweet pop songs with tons of distorted noise" formula.

^^^^^^^^^^^

Yes, but as bad as it is, VH-1 is not worth dying over...I think one of the
best ways to dismiss a band once you believe they've become irredeemably
terrible is to say "I always thought they sounded like music for beer
commercials anyway". Then when they *do* end up doing so, you can say "See!
I told you so!" And if the above examples make you despair, I guess you
won't want to see the Molson Ice ad that features "How Soon Is Now?"
(without vocals, so Johnny Marr got all the royalties)...

Actually, I don't mind bands letting their music be used in commercials; I
just wish they chose them a bit more judiciously. I mean, what does
"Sweetness and Light" have to do with driving? It'd be better in an ad for
Nutrasweet, whereas music for car commercials might best be left to
Swervedriver. The possibilities are endless.

Eine kleine sleepmusik:
Cocteau Twins: Victorialand, The Moon and the Melodies
Brian Eno: Apollo
Thomas Koener: Teimo (because it's barely audible)

Revelatory stuff? Well, I tend to be a bit wary of stuff that grabs me
immediately, because that usually means I'm going to get tired of it
eventually. This almost always happens with the Big Hit Single on an album -
there's nothing like overexposure to really kill a song's appeal (e.g. when
I put on my copy of Star, I edit out Feed The Tree). I like stuff that takes
a while to get into and keeps revealing surprises. Nevertheless, some things
have appeared brilliant right away:

Cocteau Twins: "Pink Orange Red", "Throughout the Dark Months of April and
May", "Carolyn's Fingers"
Saint Etienne: "Like the Swallow"
Spoonfed Hybrid: "Naturally Occurring Anchors"
New Order: "Lonesome Tonight"
The House Of Love: "Plastic"

PS There is no such thing as alternative. That's the easiest definition to

Will Seargent.  Others have commented on the music (the single I heard was
dreadful, I thought) but noone has yet raised the most important issue in
respect of this band ... which is ... that ...

Will's haircut is surely the worst there has ever been in the entire
history of rock and roll.  I vaguely recall John Cale once had something
vaguely similar but Will's is just the most girly revolting thing I've seen
for a long time!  It looks like something a sixties (female) supermodel

I think the question should be finding a rock star without
problem hair. What about problem hair songs?

I tried sending this out a while ago but it appears it never made it to

---------------------------------------------------

I came across an odd item today that I'd not heard about.  It's a single
for Dead Can Dance's Ubiquitous Mr Lovegrove.  This was pressed in Canada
and distributed by Polygram.  There's no fancy cover; in fact it looks
like one of those oldie single reissues or those generic dance singles.
There isn't even an insert.  There's a little 4AD label on the disc
itself but otherwise it doesn't resemble a 4AD release.  There's no
indication that this is a promo CD, it certainly doesn't look like
the promos for this particular song that I've seen.  It also has The
Wind that Shakes the Barley.  Lastly, I found this at Tower Records
of all places.  Are there any other singles like this, pressed in
Canada or elsewhere?

If anyone is keeping track of these kinds of things, let me know and
I can send you the catalogue numbers and whatnot.

RHP are folk *influenced*. There.

I don't know the "need" to classify--I at least have resorted to saying
"good music" when asked what kind of music I like--but once a discussion
about classification comes up, it's kinda hard to enter the discussion
w/out talking about classification, no?

I at least understood the initial post-er (not Micah) to be syaing "RHP
are really just folk music," and my bit about the lacerating gtr was
simply meant to say, "well, probably a lot of people who like 'just folk
music' would *not* like that asepct of RHP, even if they like the rest."
(I may well test this theory w/a couple of friends who are into mostly
John Prine, T-Bone Burnett, Indigo Girls, etc.: all "folk-influenced" if
not "just folk" artists.)

And, uh, I'm one who doesn't often like "folk" because too much of it
falls into this sort of cloying sincerity mode (I'm an ironist through &
through I guess)--but strangely enough, that very too-overt *expression*
of "sincerity8" seems less actually sincere than it should. There's
something appealing about the *intensity* of someone like Kozelek, Mark
Eitzel of AMC, etc. (perhaps especially to this thrown iron...)

Just bought the new Cocteau Twins. Payed $12.99!!! Is it just me or was
perhaps this a little high. I called a couple stores and evidently this
was the average price. Ouch. Even the import EPs were cheaper.

I must say though that the package was very nice. My first listening
prompted a reaction along the lines of "what the ??..." and I was
confused. Sure, the piano was nice and all but this is Cocteau Twins?
I've loved everything so far but this certainly was different. After I
listened to it again I liked it a little more and I'm sure I'll get used
to it. But wow, what a difference. I must say though that I still like
the original version of Pink Orange Red quite a bit more.

Quelle coincidence... I just did some font/design work for my brother's

they changed their minds. Do the Calgarian Glider folk want any free logos?

I have downloaded a whole bunch of apps from the info-Mac archives, and some of
them seem VERY slick, but I'm a-feared which one I want to sink 100s of
man-hours putting data into.

Does anyone have any good/bad experiences with programs they've used?  Like,
"this one is great, but it won't let me put tracks and various artists in, like
my Heavenly Voices CD".  Or "the one that makes a listing for a tape you're
making is cool, but it crashes everytime I get finished making a tape listing."

I think I like "CDLux" and "Audiofile" the best.  Maybe this will help other
people who are looking to catalog their 4AD collection as well.

Subject: Twinlights EP - etherial ramblings or small frisbee?


Having been a Cocteau Twins fan since 1983, and followed them through their
many ups and downs artistically, I must say that I have been disappointed
at times, but have still loved everything they have done... that is up
until "Twinlights".  This is the weakest piece of fluff I have heard from
anyone in a long time.  The acoustic version of "Pink Orange Red" is
pretty, but not very satisfying.  And the rest of the EP could be disposed
of.  The insipid piano and the Perry Como strings are unlistenable.  And
the lyrics..."Rilkean Heart I looked for you to give me transcendant
experiences..."  Give me a break.  I wish Liz would give up English again,
I know that she is trying to learn to express herself better, but I much
preferred when she sang unintelligible syllables.

I understand that this EP is not representative of the music on the
forthcoming album, and for that I thank Goddess.  "Need-Fire" was amazing.
I felt that they had taken the direction they had been going and melded it
with the power that they used to have.  I for one would like to hear more
along this vein.

I knew it was bound to happen one day, I just hope that this EP is an
isolated incident.

SHAME SHAME SHAME on anyone who lives in Houston and did not go see The
Legendary Jim Ruiz Group last Thursday!!! THERE WERE ONLY 6 PEOPLE THERE!!!!

It was just awful. Here you have 5 sweet kids playing indie bossanova sappy
love songs to an audience consisting of mabye 3 people who actually knew
the words and were singing along giddily, 2 metal chicks who were too drunk to
realize tht they were dancing to music they would sneer at if they were sober
(besides it was a chance to impress the stoner bartender, you can't blame
them!), and one other guy who was their manager I think, and therefore dosen't
count, and one other guy who was staring into oblivion and would occasionally
scratch his head furiously at 8 minute intervals. IT WAS AWFUL!

For all of you who are constantly dissing Houston as the cultre-void of the
entire world, you missed a swell band that, get this *CAME ONLY TO HOUSTON, AND
BYPASSED AUSTIN*. I can certify that none of you were there! I don't want to
see anymore "houston sucks, man" posts (and god only knows how much of other
people's time we've wasted with that lil' thread, like the folk in say, SOUTH
AFRICA, get any good tours...)

ANYWAY, away with the soapbox - The kids were just darling. Patsy and Edina
would well approve if they had any heart in them at all... Stephanie didn't
want to sing, and Jim threatened her saying, "I pay you to be here! you have to
sing, I'll make you sing!" Their drummer's reputation for drinking anyone under
the table was exposed, and Jim told us all about his jazz guitar influences...
Afterward I spoke to them appologising for the lack of fans (yes, this means
you, HK! ;P) and they were quite sweet. Jim even gave me a copy of the latest
Chickfactor!! Jim also said at the radio station they were interviewed at The
interviewer said she liked their music, but not the sappy love song quality i
it. the girl just didn't get it, did she? Imagine, the nerve!

I'll be very interested if they're changing their sound significantly.
After hearing all of them--even Liz--phoning in their performances on

Yeah, that's about the extent of my Excel database.  I could whip up a real
slick interface in Director, but the databasing capabilities pretty much suck.
(even with fileflex)

One of the coolest feature of one of the databases I'm looking at is something
called "universal search".  This feature allows you to enter a word; then the
database will go through every field of every record for every instance of
that word or phrase and return all those to you.  (Fancy bit 'o FileMaker
scripting, that!)

The only problem is the above database doesn't have the "tape-maker" feature
of a similar program.  I *really* like that, as I am always making tapes for
people with mixed CD tracks, and it would be nice if I knew ahead of time how
much I could fit without having to try and add up the track times one at a
time.  The "tape-maker" feature lets you click the number next to the CD track
and it adds it to a second database which represents Side 1 or Side 2 of your
tape.  You keep flipping through your CD database and whenever you see a song
you think you want to add, just click the track number and it adds it to your
cassette list.

I WANT IT ALL!!!!!!  gimmie gimmie gimmie!   (Actually what I'd like is a
database that works with the auto databasing feature of the Apple Remote CD
Player so that you can add tracks on the CD as you put it in, or open the
database directly and add info there.)

PS Since this is a FileMaker database; it oughta work under Windows with only
slight modifications.  (eg, no Applescript support.)

        I thought a Catherine Wheel was a medieval mode of execution
whereby the victim was strapped to a huge wheel and it would be set
on fire and then it was rolled across the land...sounds pretty outlandish,
but I heard this somewhere and I have a very vivid mental image of when I
first heard the term, I think it was attached to this.

        I recently picked up a copy of _The_Pink_Opaque_ on vinyl and was
curious as to its worth (I bought it for $7).  I've had it on CD for a bit,
but I guess it's still in most recorded forms.  Just curoious as to when it
was put out of print.
        Also of interest, when I opened up the sleeve, a 4AD catalogue was
inside containing releases from 1980-1986.  Descriptions included the code
(including Axis releases), group, album title, and album form (7", 12", CD,
etc.).  I may be able to scan it for the WWW-page, *Lars*, for it indicates
the at-time "deleted" albums as well as some interseting art by 23 Envelope
(neato logo for them with a crown over "23" and then over "e").
        Two other CT items: I have the _Tiny_Dynamine_ LP (not the 1991
reissue) as well as a CT movie-size poster advertising the Evangeline
single release date of "20th September 1993."  Just curious as to these
worths as well.
        ***Please*** if you respond to me, please don't do it to the list,
for I haven't been on in a year.  Please write me at: jpd130@psu.edu
        Thanks all -- I'm loving the _Twinlights_ EP!!!
