Heading 1. - The Amps

I wasn't won over by Tipp City. I thought very crap production and songs.
But it is interesting to note that the British press are singing their
praise. Whilst they don't think Pacer is a brilliant record many have
given it 4/5. They also reckon its one of those records that make a
refreshing change to the 'Britpop' stuff that all the rage here.
I read somewhere that Tipp City is the best pop record this year.

In this month's select there is news that Kelley deal has a new project
with a guy from The Grifters (Dave Grifter). The Amps drummer has heard
it and reckons its quite good. The Amps are also going back to the studio
quite soon to do more stuff and also there will be some more stuff by the
breeders in the future.

It's from that film with Joe Mantegna (I think he says the line) about the
con artists.  It's adapted from a David Mamet play, I think.  Is it called

My background is in Economics.  The issue as a consumer is to maximize my
pleasure for the least amount of bucks.  I don't know if you noticed, but
when 4AD finally got together with those "Corporate" entities, prices for
domestically back catalog CDs were lower in price, i.e., Cocteau Twins.

I think imports are the biggest rip-off in the record industry. Its bad
enough that new CDs cost 12.98 and up, but to add tariff costs to CDs
that could easily be made domestic makes me fume.

Thoughts for the day.

Fred Collins

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

you think that's bad! man, i just moved to germany, and the prices here
are just OUTRAGEOUS! i used to live in berkeley where i could get great
cds (ALL cds, really.) for under $10 at amoeba or rasputins.  nowadays i
pay ATLEAST $25 for the same deal!  what gives?  but i mustn't complain.
it's one lame drawback to living in a very beautiful country.  and i
still get to listen to great music, even if it is for a higher price.
too bad.  life is for the living.
back to the original issue.....(i think).. something having to do with
bands, etc. "selling out"?  yeah, whatever.  i'm just grateful that bands
DO "sell out" (if you will).  otherwise, how else would i know of them?
(ha ha).  i mean, just like i think William Fitzalan once said:

"In a strict Marxist sense, any material resources you surrender to those
willing to take it is an expoitation of sorts; in a perfect world, we'd
all sit around in the workers' paradise while Lisa Germano and DCD surrounded
us with free ambience.  But it just ain't so, and we know it, so we all
fork up the bucks."

the whole point of this business is that it IS business.  this is
a money making industry whether or not we'd like to admit it.  but thank
god we get some great music out of the deal!

The current rules are something like 4 tracks or 20 minutes, right? But what
about that really long Orb single "A Huge Ever-Pulsating Brain..." or
whatever? That was 50 mins long or something

BTW if you've ever noticed the Projekt ad in the back pages of Spin, it reads:

so what does that mean in terms of the ongoing and oh-so-fascinating

Yes they are. I pay  between $27 and $30 here in South Africa. Sire / Warner
connections in the USA would not be unappreciated here. At these kind of prices
it gets a bit expensive to buy 6 or 7 LPs a month. I'm not saying flood the mark
t
with product; just make it available at non-mercenary pricing.

I pay more for an EP ($16) than USA pays for an LP. I must admit - if I think it

Hello,

Marvyn asked in connection with the Etienne:
> "where am i from?  I'm from the united states of KISS MY ASS!"
> Anybody know where that line is from?

The whole dialogue in "Etienne gonna die" comes from the film "House Of
Games"; Bob & Pete are both big David Mamet fans. Joe Mantegna delivers
the line in question. I got this from, um, my web site:

Incidentally, anyone else really *like* the new single? A bit of
Euro-tesco with real class. Yes!

To regain 4ad-content, I'd better pass some remarks on "Otherness". The
guy in the record shop said "Oh, yeah, it's just like their older
stuff." What??? It's just like Seefeel's older stuff, maybe! I really
like the ep, although I wouldn't have minded more Cocteaus input - it
comes across as Seefeel with Liz guesting on vocals to me. I was hoping
for something in the style of "Watchlar". Very nice, though. And
"Violaine" sounds as if it will work well as a regular Cocteaus track too.

Then there's the very quiet bit right at the end of "The Eternal" on Joy
Division's Closer where we find out what those men with weight on their
shoulders are really like.

Is this the one entitled "Hug My Soul"?  I'm enjoying it immensely.  I really
like St. Etienne.  Where have they been all my life?  :O

They're with my label, Dewdrops, and you can either get the
CD by mail order from us, or ask your local record store
to order it from Dutch East India Trading or Surefire.
You can also get it from Bedazzled (DC), Stinkweeds (AZ),
Aron's (CA), and a few other stores scattered in the southwest.

This is the description we came up with for the press release:

Elysium - Glisten

"Glisten" is the perfect word for this sun-kissed album, the debut
release from Los Angeles band Elysium.
Guitars meander and sparkle while Jen's angel-siren vocals pour
out emotion into beautiful layers. The music clearly resonates with
bliss, with an uncommon elegance and a wonderful sense of subtlety
that sets them apart from your other favorites. The results
are stunning, original and gorgeous.
The CD features 11 songs / 57 minutes of music produced by the band.
Half of the album was mixed by Shimmy Disc's Kramer, the other half by
Elysium.

A review from The Gallery Gazette (San Antonio):
"An unearthly sound... reminiscent of the famed Cocteau Twins that
we all know and love. Jenny Adams provides the vocals with a range
that simply makes our temples throb... floating somewhere between the
stratosphear and hemishpere, finding ballast in a chord, a voice,
a word..."

FREE SHOW THIS MONDAY!!
Elysium plays for free this Monday 6 Nov. at the famed
Whiskey, 8901 Sunset Blvd., W. Hollywood, CA. 8:45 pm.
$3 if you're under 21. 5 other bands are playing also.
