I used to keep my collection in an Excel spreadsheet.... ( version 3 or
4 ? ) and have since moved it to a very cool Access database that I
designed one boring summer weekend. I like building my own apps because
I hate the overhead of whatever else is out there. If you have soft PC
or something for your MAC, you may be able to use my program.

IMHO, everyone on the same journey... make sure whatever application
you sink man/woman-hours entering your information into has a good CSV
or text file EXPORT capability !!! because there is nothing more
frustrating than having to re-enter data when you find a better program.

there's something seriously wrong on your side of the atlantic if you're
being charged this much. i bought a copy in virgin london on saturday for
3 pounds (although it'll be 4 pounds next week probably).

as for my thoughts on it the new version of pink, orange, red is curious
(in a good way) and the rest is pleasant enough but... i think the
ambient one (the mark seefeel mixed thing?) will be better (and,
hopefully, less expensive for you lot).

also picked up a 3 track us lush promo with bugs bunny on the back cover.
does anyone know what i'm talking about? is the first track on this
exclusive to the promo (i've not had a chance to compare it against the
other version). the other two tracks say explicitly 'album version'.

and finally, because somebody was asking a week or two ago and because
there are so many new names floating around at the mo, the 4ad catalogue
4ad, P.O. Box 3813, LONDON, SW18 1XE england.
1.50 pounds for catalogue plus 60p postage (england), 1.20 (europe), 2.00
(usa and canada), 2.20 (rest of the world)
cost of catalogue deductable from first order
all payment in pounds sterling and made payable to 4AD ltd.

Subject: Re: Catherine Wheel

Also, in the UK Catherine Wheels are sweets. Basically, they are long
strips of liquorice wrapped around a sugar coated jelly sweet.

An unbiased opinion:
My girlfriend reckons that Rilkean heart sounds as if they've gone for
 a really commercial sound along the lines of Celine Dion. I must admit I
cringed when I first heard it. The CD gets better with each song although
its pretty lame. Now if they had released that music to the advert ....
Even if they did a three minute loop of it it would get loads of airplay.
I was somewhat surprised that in one of the largest UK cities all the
major record stores didn't have the ep. I had to go to an independent
store.

The amorphous body thing was a fairly small limited edition, which
disappeared from the shops in the UK in a couple of weeks - I think it
was something like 5000 for the UK, 1000 for export, those sorts of
numbers anyway.  You are probably going to have to pay inflated
collectors prices to get hold of a copy now.

The new Luna album (see below) is really rather good - not a patch on
Galaxie 500, but better than either of the previous albums (especially
"Bewitched", which has one great song at the start and then a load of
filler).  Still basically straightforward pop, but Dean has recaptured
some of that late-night G500 atmosphere.  As far as the "Bonnie and
Clyde" single goes, I can't say where an American might find it, but I
can say it's probably not worth paying much for - "Chinatown" is
straight off the album, the first version of B&C is quite good, the
second version is hidden at the end of my copy of "Penthouse", at least,
and the fourth track is a short David Byrne cover.

A while back we had a thread about moshin' and how it ruined gigs.  Dunno
why, but the thing that really pisses me off most at gigs is people like
this "Whopper" person.  People who shout the same (meant to be funny?)

Neil james asked:
>can anyone give me any scoop on 'starethrough' from Seefeel?  is it a single,
>ep, or album?  and was it released in the u.s. or just in europe?

It's an EP, about 20something minutes long, with four tracks:
Starethrough, Air-Eyes, Spangle, Lux 1. "Starethrough" is one of their
best ever, "Air-Eyes" is good, "Spangle" is really annoying, sounds like
a Casiotone, and unfortunately became much of the inspiration for
"Succour". "Lux 1" is very, very ambient and almost inaudible at times.

I don't believe it was ever released in the US. It's a UK release on
Warp. Shouldn't be hard to find at a store that carries imports. The
cover is almost entirely white except for the track information running
across the middle.

True.  But I don't think either of them on their own (Morrissey or Marr) has
the power that they did combined.  They just managed to have a winning
combination where the whole was _definitely_ greater than the sum of its parts.

Second, I just picked up a Sony CD Player for home this weekend from Best Buy
(it was the store demo) which plays...*100* CDs.  (that's right, count
'em..100!)  It cost me $300.  Now, why in the hell does it cost like $1000+ for
a CD-ROM which plays multiple CDs, huh?  Mechanical mechanisms follow different
laws of physics for computer CDs or something?  What the hell is that?

was a $129 player to replace his 8-yr. old Fisher.)

I was sorta hoping someone else would answer Thom.  According to eyesore,
the following albums were released before "Mesh and Lace":

Presages (various)
In The Flat Field (Bauhaus)
Prayers On Fire (Birthday Party)

Actually, the last one was immediately before "Mesh and Lace" in the
catalogue so I guess it's possible that it was actually released
afterwards.

hey, when i saw o+ and the mighty mighty bosstones at my high school
(phillips academy andover, andover, ma) in '92, i managed to survive half
the show right behind some *huge* guy with a burger king crown on (i could
have stood in front of him but i didn't want to be in the very front and
have my body mangled by the force of the crowd against the stage.) when he
introduced himself he said 'just call me the whopper.' what a coincidink!

(when i was in houston), i was listening to the blue day ep and right as i
drove up to the apartment gate the ep ended and i forgot i added dif juz to
the end of the tape. i just sat at the gate, smoking a cig, listening to
the beautiful music, and watching the sun rise. *sigh* does anyone know
where i can find their beautiful stuff? then as soon as the tape ended,
someone drove up and opened the gate so i didn't have to call and wake up
my dear mum. what a pleasant morning :)

That's the old address.  Apparently it still works, but it's supposed
to disappear soon.

Well, I guess this could be an opportunity to plug Microsoft Access and my Web
site at the same time.  About two months ago I announced the Web database I've
been working on, which contains quite a lot of "this-listy" stuff.  All the
data is maintained in Access, and almost every HTML page is generated by a
little Windows program using ODBC.  One of the pages ("Technical Info") even
shows you the database diagram so you can see how the tables are linked
together.  From the main index page you'll see a category list; I suspect 4AD-L
readers will be most interested in the one I call "Atmospheric".  I'd also love
to hear from anybody that wants to help me with updates and/or missing items.

Here it is:

It was one of the 2 b-sides to the first single (whose name escapes me at
the moment) that was released about 2 weeks before the album was
released.  There was another song on that too... 24 hours or 24 days or
something???  Think it was all album tracks, but I think there was an
import version of the single that wasn't... I think I think I think... I
should stop thinking so much....

I don't know about that, but I *can* tell you that she used to be a really
awful 17-year-old Paula Abdul/Tiffany type Top 40/dance arteeste...until she
suddenly, conveniently and commerciallyviably went Alternative(tm) - I can't
decide which of her careers is worse

Since the words "Cocteau Twins" don't actually appear on the cover, it's not
unusual to find it filed under Harold Budd.

No, you're not. I think that Zach either has some kind of multiple
personality disorder, or lots of different people are using his e-mail
address, or he hasn't quite figured out the difference between replying to
individuals and replying to the list...
