They've released two exclusive studio b-sides to date -
"don't tell your mother" is on the "can't be sure" single, released on
rought trade (RT 218) in 1989.  It is also on the DGC rarities vol 1 comp.
"noise" was a b-side for the "goodbye" single release on parlophone in 1992

there is a live version of here's where the story ends on the "wild horses"
cassingle.

all other singles just have radio edits or lp versions.

there is a French Black Sessions promo CD with three live tracks: here's
where the story ends, hideous towns and my finest hour.

That's it other than bootlegs.  As far as I can tell, they have done two
songs live that they have not recorded yet.  One is called Turkish and is
really amazing - beautiful vocals from harriet and just david on guitar -
no bass or drums. The other is called "something more" (i think) and
is IMO their worst song, so i won't be disappointed if they don't record it.


>p.s. listening to "reading writing and arithmetic" right now and
>remembered they were on the rough trade label...did they release anything
>besides "rw&a" before, i.e. the slowdive eps before "just for a day"?

just the can't be sure single, then they took a year off to record
rw&a.

Thanks for the corrections, Lawren.
I would note,however, that while it is indeed quite hard to pigeonhole them into
"thislisty" category, their efforts have been quite seminal and untraditional.
Isn't it the kind of music we usually discuss on this list? Not an attempt to
start a thread,though.

Subject: starbucks coffee in-store tape


hey everyone!

just wanted to let everyone know that starbucks just received a new
in-store play tape today, which includes red house painters' "cabezon",
dead can dance's "the wind that shakes the barley", and cocteau twins'
"pandora"...all on the same tape with k.d. lang and all these other people.

the last tape had mostly capitol artists, including cocteau twins
("bluebeard", "oil of angels", "theft and wandering..."), radiohead,
mazzy star, and even the beastie boys!!!  (ricky's theme...an
instrumental...)

i wonder how they pick who or what is to be on each in-store tape...i think
following dead can dance is k.d. lang or robbie robertson or
someone...there's also everything but the girl on the tape...
and i wonder if 4ad knows about this.

oh well...

laters!

There were, I think, two singles from RW&A but the b-sides were just other
album tracks, so nothing special there. No, wait...they have a track on a
Geffen rarities compilation - that might have been a single b-side or maybe
just previously unreleased (it's entitled "Don't Tell Your Mother"). Then
there's the "Goodbye" single, which also contains "Wild Horses" (added to
North American version of "Blind") and "Noise" (not included anywhere else).
I've seen bootleg tapes and some of those have previously unreleased songs,
I think.

>mark...der Prinz der Pailletten.

Prince of sequins?? Care to elaborate on that?

>Which pedals do Lush Use?

Well, on _Spooky_ it was basically anything Robin Guthrie told them to use
;) Or rather, they didn't use that many of their own pedals and just plugged
into Robin's effects rig. They don't really use as many as they used to, but
I know Emma has something called a Digitech Whammy pedal, whatever that is...

Saw _To Die For_ the other day and something about Joaquin Phoenix's
character struck me as oddly familiar. Couldn't place the resemblance at
first, but then it hit me: that tousled hair, that druggy stare, the denim
jacket...it's Jason Pierce! Okay, well maybe not that much...

Subject: Saint Etienne


Just a quick note to tell everyone that I think St. Etienne's CD _so tough_ is
fantastic!  Otherworldy vocals, at times, mixed with a funky bass and
scattered sound samples of 50's tv blend together perfectly on this.

Does anyone have any other info on these guys?  I tried glancing back through
old mail on this thread but didn't find anything enlightening.

Anyway, its a great CD if you've never heard it.

PS I reckon the rare-tape-thingie is dead judging from the lack of response to
my previous note...I guess no one gives a shit about the "lost-in-progress"
tape-chain at this point. :(

the incredible wierd, spooky photographs and artwork for CT
albums...especially head over heels and ummm... the PEPERMINT PIG CD
SINGLE! That photograph is one of the creepiest I've ever seen. For those
of you not familliar, it's a photo of a murky day in front of a house
surrounded by water and some woman neck deep in the water(maybe it's Liz)
and inlayed in reverse of that photo is the same except backwards, color
changed and zoomed in. Really incredible stuff!

i didn't like so tough as much as foxbase alpha.  st. etienne did remix the
boo radley's rodney king on the lazarus promo, and that's pretty good.  if i
remember right, they have multiple singers, but that's all i really know.
oh, and tiger bay differs significantly from the music on so tough and
foxbase, but i haven't heard enough to know much more.

Everything before 'Blue Bell Knoll' was done by Vaughan Oliver (23 envelope/v23)
He has worked with different photographers...

In most cases you can find this kind of information on the sleeves but on
the 'Peppermint Pig' release you will only find the '23 envelope'-logo (12'
version).

The photographer on 'Pepermint Pig" was Nigel Gierson, who did a lot of
work for the Cocteau Twins sleeves (like head over heels/treasure/tiny
dynamine/echoes in a shallow bay etc.) and a lot of things for other 4AD
releases in the early days.

If you want to know more about v23, there are a few books and magazine
articles about them...

(two french exhibition catalogues/this rimy river l.a. exhibition
catalogue/emigre 4AD special and more)

After 'Blue Bell Knoll' the Cocteau Twins took the artwork in their 'own'
hands - they worked with other graphic designers, who created a less
interesting 'poor-v23-kind-of-style' (personal opinion :)

on the strength of one of her tracks ("into the blue") alone, i'd recommend
the album if you're the least bit interested.  the beauty of that song ought
to send chills down you're spine if you're in possession of a
semi-functional nervous system.  the rest of the album is, as you might
expect, a potpourri of techno-related styles.  but moby is godhead in my
book, so i'm sure i'm being far from objective...

btw, am i understanding correctly that harriet wheeler (pitter patter) is
actually singing for scheer?  no wisecracks if i misunderstood, now, y'hear?

YES! Finally signed up! Okay, first things first. I have been dying to to
reply to one of the other member's comments about RHP's Ocean Beach album.
S/He made  the comment that the reason the band is no longer on 4Ad is
because Ocean Beach was their "worst" album--- MAN, you are either ignorant
or are not really a RHP fan because if you were, you'd realize that the
band has gone beyond "Lord Kill The Pain" (which was probably your fave RHP
song) and that in fact, it is one of their best! So there...oaky, feeling
better all ready.
