Actually, "Hazel" was not on the "Garlands" LP, it was a Peel session
included as a bonus track with the "Garlands" CD.  Actually, the "Garlands"
bonus tracks were a major incentive when I finally decided to get a CD

                      ^^^^^^
Only a couple weeks until Jessamine (great band on kranky) play Portland!
I'll be the one walking out of the show before the Dandy Warhols (GACK!)
get anywhere near the stage (don't you hate it when an excellent band has
to open for a bunch of twits?).

Anyways-- I'd have to say that Jens is being a bit hard on Heavenly
Bodies.  I have to admit that it's not an album I pull off the shelf too
often, but to say that they're "aping" their betters is a bit harsh and
unjustified.  First of all, James Pinker recorded with Dead Can
Dance on Spleen and Ideal and Caroline Seaman recorded with This
Mortal Coil on Blood, so it's not like some of the similarities wouldn't
be expected.  Still, Heavenly Bodies definitely had an approach that was
uniquely them.  James Pinker is a very talented musician and he seems to
turn up in some of the strangest places.  He did quite a bit of stuff on
the last Michael Brook record and also recorded recently with some other
band that I can't recall.  I personally wish they would have steered more
clear of the saxophone on that record, though...

As for ITC Garamond:  at least it's not as hideous as Korinna, the one
the Cocteau Twins used on Four Calendar Cafe!  Yikes!

Worst CD purchase of the year:  Tarnation  (and I actually like
traditional country!)  I cannot listen to her voice without wanting to
toss my CD player out the window.  My advice to curious people is to save
your money and go buy Emmylou Harris' Elite Hotel CD (or her newest one
with Daniel Lanois, Wrecking Ball--excellent stuff!).  This Mortal Coil
covered Harris' song Till I Gain Control Again.

It only proves that the song doesn't work on piano - I was kind of hoping
they would use acoustic guitar for that instead. I listened to the original
again, and apart from the guitar sound being a little dated, it was much
better. In fact, the whole Tiny Dynamine/Echoes... thing sounded better than
I remembered it (and yes, I know that's not a very popular thing to say)

Yup. Those two were demos from before the recording of "Garlands" (I
think it says this in the CD booklet...) In my opinion they're for
completists only, not nearly as good as the album or the Peel Session tracks.

The release date for "Otherness" is next Tuesday, right? (Everything

I rather liked it, except that the synth-vibes are a bit fake sounding.
Faced with the choice I'd still pick the original, though.

>heard they were like Slowdive without tunes

More like [early] Ride with some nice flute playing and a
Will-Heggie-style strummed bass. Actually they _do_ have tunes and the
instrumental ones are very nice, it's just that I dislike the singer and
the lyrics; he sounds like a 15-year-old Ian Masters wannabe and the
words just don't scan properly. [Disclaimer: I speak only of "Stereo
Musicale", their only album I own or have heard.] Come to think of it, it
was the singer/words that turned me off the Rose Chronicles too.
Looking back, I think I was too harsh on BMJ yesterday. They really do
have some nice songs, "Sisters" in particular -- it has a nice flute solo
winding all through it, and alternates mellow parts with furious
white-noise fuzzfests in true Ride style.

Yeah, about $15 or so bucks per hour.  Just about anybody can do this...check
with any local import co. or home video specialist.  Make sure it's digital xfer
(most are these days...); they even sell decks with the 2 formats for like $400
or so.

I get them tranfered locally in Houston at a place called "east-west imports"
and they always tranlate fine.

I recently converted a couple of 3 hr PAL tapes (full of 4AD promo rarities
and European Dead Can Dance video-filmed concerts) to NTSC for about $70
here in Austin.

I suggest to the original poster to keep shopping around.  I found a couple

From: Gil Gershman (TooPurist@AOL.COM)
Subject: the sweet sounds of top-notch terror (was re: soundtracks)


I can't believe they haven't been mentioned yet. . . but some of the most
amazing (and thislisty) scores can be found in the amazing Italian art/horror
films of Dario Argento and Michele Soavi.
"Suspiria" is a true shiverfest - both aurally and visually. Goblin, Dario's
"house band", mix together pounding bass lines, liquid keyboards,
angelic/demonic vocals - the warped tinklings of a satanic musicbox.... Truly
music and film to (hahaha!) die for.

Some of DA's others are:
jazzy (Ennio Morricone's too-tense-for-words "The Bird With the Crystal
Plumage" score)

creepy ("Profondo Rosso"["Deep Red"] - with that stuttered repetitive
keyboard riff which can turn you into a nail-biting paranoiac!)

bombastic cliche-ridden pseudo-classical feel as "The Omen" and Orff's
"Carmina Burana" (more than a little reminiscent of this latter one...). Ah,
but I still love it. :-b

Dario can descend into heavy-metal banality (check out... or don't...
"Phenomena"), but there are always exquisite passages of 'normal' music -
usually courtesy of Claudio Simonetti and/or Simon Boswell. And for every
"Opera" (too..uh... opera-laden, alternating with z-grade metal!) there's a
"Tenebrae", with another batch of unforgettable riffs to keep you awake at
night.

The music for Michele Soavi's "The Church" (a visually spectacular film,
btw!) is based on Philip Glass themes - more of that flowing, rapturous,
fluid sound that can turn you to jello with just a few notes. I'm not sure if
PG actually wrote the music, though he's sort-of credited... but it's
beautiful either way. Glass' main theme for "Candyman" is brilliant, too.
There are some beautiful things going on in MS's "The Sect"["The Devil's
Daughter"] as well.

Some other gorgeous soundtracks:
"Paperhouse"
"The Thing"(82) and "Prince of Darkness" (god bless minimalism!)
"Twin Peaks"
"Hardware" and "Dust Devil"
"The Nightmare Before Christmas" (fun in a goofy, over-the-top way)
"The Reflecting Skin" (probably the greatest unheard-of movie ever,
im(ns)ho...)
"Nightbreed" and the three "Hellraisers" (esp #2)
"El Topo" (especially if you dig that Scenic/Morricone thing!)
"Scorpio Rising" (kenneth anger's)-(how can you RESIST this pop-music
spectacular?!
"Naked Lunch" (free jazz is cool, huh huh...) - and most of Cronenberg's
films...
"The Fury" (prime Howard Shore... anyone ever seen it on cd?)
"My Bloody Valentine" - okay, not really. But it must have influenced
someone. . .
"The Company of Wolves" - more faerietale goosepimples...

and on a thislisty note, Dead Can Dance have a track on the soundtrack of
"Demons 2: The Nightmare Returns"! Man, Lisa and Brendan don't make much of
THAT facet of their resume, do they?

Cool film though. :)

So, was "Perfect Teeth" produced by THE Simon Le Bon?  Joke?

Anyway, pulled out all of my old Swans records when Great Annihilator came
out last winter (thus the sig), and it's been a Gira/Jarboe year for me.  I
work in a warehouse with housewives, and two or three times a week I play a
tape with GA on one side, and Perfect Teeth on the other (they like
Unrest(?)).  I'm maybe gonna work them up to Love of Life as a break from the
top 40 radio station they all enjoy.  Didn't mean to start a thread...but
good to know I'm not alone out there.

Glad someone else likes the Star Wars stuff!
I picked up the box set of the remastered ones
in the "Star Wars Anthology" a year or so ago.
The first flick rocked my world as a 4th grader.

Also, Ryuichi Sakamoto creates
great motifs, even if they repeat a bit
too much. Check these out sometime:

"The Last Emperor" (this won the Oscar
for best score of that year ('89?)

and

"The Sheltering Sky" (which also
has some nice world music and thrown in
addition to Sakamoto's classical stuff).

Also, the incidental music (no! not
the pop song stuff!) of
"Less Than Zero" is quite murky
yet moody and ambient  (I'm still wondering
if it's ever been released....)

There was indeed a fan club CD. I joined their club and got one! It is
called I Love To Paint (HVNLP9CD). Only 900 or so copies were made and only
available to fan club members. It was released before Christmas last year.

The tracks are:
Flight To Tashkent
Sushi Rider
Deutscher Kendals
Think Twice
Studio Kinda Filthy
We're Coming In Loaded
Fife Coast
Fake 88
Parliament Hill
Everything I Touch Turns To Gold
Schroeder
Stranger In Paradise

It comprises mostly out takes, unreleased material and samples that never
made it to their released CD's. I think it is better than Tiger Bay -
especially the US version.

Their fan club is called Lovers Unite. The cost of joining is a GBP8 pounds
sterling. The address is....

Lovers Unite
Heavenly
72 Wardour Street
London W1V 3HP
United Kingdom.

Hope this helps and good luck finding it.

Cheers

Donald
