Unless there are obvious clues like the names Moebius and/or Roedelius
appearing on the records somewhere, I wouldn't know. If there's anyone
considering looking for these, beware that there is another Oval out there
that is/was signed to Icerink, the label started by one of the guys from
Saint Etienne, and which is obviously something quite different.

If you look at the top you'll see it's a _bounce_ of a digest, sent by a
clueless sysadmin who's trying to get one of his ex-users unsubscribed by
bouncing his mail back to the list. I'm trying to deal with this and I
think I've gotten him to cease & desist.

For those of you already getting digests, this is why you've been getting
duplicate messages.

I think their entire recorded output was released on Hut in the UK, so I'm
sure that vinyl exists for all of it.  I've seen the "Cradle Snatch" and "I
Wear Your Chain" (was that it?) EPs on vinyl, for sure.

I'm pretty sure that I read in Select quite some time ago that they had
broken up.  This was a few months after _Cold_Water_Flat_ was released in the
US, if memory serves.  But again, it doesn't always serve that well...

And as for Laika, didn't someone ask what they were up to?  AP did an article
in their December issue on current sampling trends, wherein members of Laika,
Soul Coughing, and Nine Inch Nails were consulted.  At the end, it mentioned
that they were "planning an EP release before year's end", which apparently
didn't come out on time.  And they're the "proud owners of an Akai S3200", to
which all I can say is: must be nice.

Don't know if the US version has the last track, but at least I've heard

it's more than midnight here, that I have to compile, build, and link

time stereo is a tape-only label, and my sources tell me this will be the
only cd for quite some time.
(it's BIZ talking)
Time Stereo is working with Perdition Plastics in Chi-town to release the CD
stateside.  Exact same content as ESP Continent, most likely with different
song titles, very likely a different package, and a different name.
(now it's hk).

That's all for now!

Minor correction.  1000 copies, not 800, so your chances of finding one has
just increased by 25%.  Perdition Plastics is working on a stateside
domestic release (under the name ESP Summer with different artwork) which
will follow the French version by a couple of months.

2 people have recently asked me if the Cocteau Twins are playing on the
new Cher record. I go 'WHAT' the f*** are you talking about. After
listening to it it appears that they are referring to the intro bit which
has the 'twingly-twangly' trademark Cocteaus guitar. I have put these 2
people straight saying that there is no possible way that CT would have
been playing and that the 't-t' sound can be made with a bit of
chorus/delay/echo/and reverb.

Has anyone else mentioned that the Chemical Borthers sampled Swallow on
one of their songs - one song was Peek-a-boo.

Saw Lush on TV. Live vocals, the rest backing tape. Should have played
the backing tape with the vocals instead.

It should.
The UK cd of "Mouth By Mouth" does have a 17th track - a tangled knot of
samples called "The Homesick Waltz". It's a great song (I use the term

When I lived down there I spent most of my money in Selectadisc - I
can't remeber the street its south of the Tottenham Court Road end of
Oxford Road and appears on the cover of the Oasis album. The other
shop was Rough Trade near Covent Garden (something Yard).

Hope that's of some help?

I actually like a few songs from that Tarnation album, but then I've got a
thing for Patsy Cline, and as derivative as a second-rate Patsy Cline
revival Tarnation may seem, they do have their brief moments.  Compared to
the vapid idiocy that passes for C&W nowadays (which is basically
rock'n'roll with western wear and an inbred drawl), gimme something like
Tarnation, hell, even Palace Brothers any day of the week.

I get the feeling that Ivo was (and quite possibly still is) enamored w/
Paula Fraser's voice; unfortunately, I don't think he quite realized that
the band can't write their way out of a wet paper bag and that they just
couldn't get along (as opposed to the case of Mark Kozelek, who can write
great songs like gangbusters, but can't seem to get along with his corporate
handlers - your ideal anti-"rockstar", natch).

Cheers,

PS. On the subjective subject of "the Worst 4AD Release Evah," there was the
Scheer EP which brought to mind the earth-shattering possiblity of 4AD going
butt-rock.  I died half of laughter and other half of embarrassment when I
listened to that disc a few months back.  Believe it or not, they do sound
better through the gurgling mess that is RealAudio (check out the 4AD home
page and see/hear for yrself).

Subject: that 95 thingie


        So, before it's way too late, i'm gonna tell you all what my
favorite purchases of new music were.  There are 13 (my new lucky number)
in no particular order:

*Heavenly Voices III*   This series is probably the best compilation series
for my tastes.  Lots of female vox.   Such a wonderful collection of
beautiful songs that i don't even program any out (a rarity for
compilations).  Yeah, if you're into this sort of music you probably have a
song or two on here as i did, but ...  

*Tricky* Maxinquaye:  Rebellious and self-indulgent at the same time as
being seductive and charming.  A perfect meld of engaging rhythm and voice.

*Lisa Gerrard* The Mirror Pool:  Though this song starts off as weakly as
she did in concert, it picks up and with a gradual momentum that has you in
it's grip well after the album has stopped playing.  Overall, the disk is
wonderful and she was even better in concert once she got going.

*Lori Carson* Where It Goes:  Although i wish Stina would have come out
with an album this year, Lori's CD is a good substitute for that sort of
quirky intimacy.  I loved Lori's work with the Golden Palominos and this
album proves that she doesn't need a heavy beat to move you.

*Innocent Mission* Glow:  All the rumors you heard about songs sounding
like "rip-offs" of other artists (Mazzy Star, Sundays, 10K Maniacs, etc.)
are well founded but it's amazing how inspired and well done these
"rip-offs" are.  I see their next album as being a masterpiece.

*Mouth Music*  Shorelife:  Well MM's first album had me intrigued by the
bizarre blend of celtic and modern pop/dance music.   The second album
dissappointed me too much to enjoy the silver lining (incorporating african
influences, seemed to make it so much more "normal" due to how much african
influenced there is in popular music).  But, i'm glad i risked the 3rd
album, "shorelife,"  since it's mostly dancey and light but has enough
quirk to interest me and enough ether to keep me dreaming.

*My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult* Hit and Run Holiday:  The carefree
decadence of TKK allows them to perform this quasi-retro soundtrack to wild
abandon with perfect ease and flair.  This album provides an alternate
pathway for the stale post-industrial dance music scene.  So why haven't i
heard H&RH on the dance floor?!?

*Crash Worship* Triplemania II:  Never staying in one place long enough to
be classified these hippie,  ... i mean ... tribal ... i mean ...
industrial ... i mean mamba ... uh ... retro?.  These guys and gals of ADRV
sure know how to put on a live show but for those times when they're not
burning down your local club put on this disk for a moogy good time.

*Bjork*  Post:  I've always loved a good Bjork tune whether it be with a
jazz group (Gling-Glo), the Sugarcubes, or solo.  This album is no
exception, but i'm sure all those interested have already heard it.

*Eden*  Fire and Rain:  One step forward for the music one step back for
the vocals.   The music became more mystical, more ethereal, less Depeche
Mode.  The vocals took a slight turn for the worse though.  Nevertheless,
this is a great album and i can't wait for more Eden &/or Sunwheel.  Anyone
heard any of the other splinters of Eden (one was called Soma i think and
there was another too, Snog?)?

*The The*  Hanky Panky:  In this case einexile was right.  :)    (nothing
more to say)

*Step Right Up*  There are several excellent songs on this tribute to an
excellent songwriter (Tom Waits) including Waits covers by Drugstore and
Pale Saints.  Even the Violent Femmes redeem themselves with a good song on
this album.   The tastes are just too eclectic to do anyone any good though
so i recommend a programmable CD player.

*The Grassy Knoll* s/t:  These wild jazzy, almost (but not quite)
industrial, instrumentals defy chategorization.  For some reason i want to
draw an analogy to Laika but it doesn't work.  You'll just have to hear it
yourself.


Biggest Dissappointments:

*Kate St. John* Indescribable Light:  ug, the blight of muzak.

*Siouxsie and the Banshees*  the rapture:  has she lost ALL inspiration?

*Boo Radleys*  Wake Up!:  Wake up is right!  Booo!  wake up!  Giant Steps
was so wonderfully quirky and wake up just seems so chipper and pointless.

*Bel Canto delays*  I wanted the new album but all i got was impatience.

*no 4AD-L end of year poll*  there's still time Lars, we can still do it,
can't we folks?  How will i know if i fit in with the collective
consciousness?

-cz

EPs, Tindersticks, and Shinjuku Thief.  Well, there's always next year.

Subject: Cocteau videos too


Just read someone else's post about Cocteau videos, and it reminded me that
I just got hold of a promo video cassette about two weeks ago that has
"Rilkean Heart" and "Half Gifts" on it.

Both videos are very well done. The two use much of the same
cinematography, abstract textural backgrounds that fill the screen, with
small insets of Liz singing and Robin and Simon playing. There are also
sequential snippets of lyrics flashing on screen, however they are not
synchronized to the music. In "Rilkean Heart," they are flashed on screen
about 1/2 second after Liz sings them, so if you are listening to her and
reading the screen it really messes with your mind.

One other interesting thing, at the end of "Rilkean Heart," there is a
10-30 second "refain" that is not on the Twinlights ep. It's just this
mellow fade out where Liz is kind of humming to the music.

I might be persuaded to make copies for those who prove themselves worthy! :-)

Side Note- Picked up a copy of Pearly, Pink, and White. On track one, there
seems to be a flaw in the recording right at about 1min13sec where the
sound cuts out for a second and then it does it again a moment later. It
sounds like a problem with the source tape, not the CD itself. Can anyone
confirm this?

The above paragraph is the exact type of incoherent blathering shit that

because I have some kind of vendetta against e, then kiss my ass. If you
can't see the half witted, morons approach to argumentation being employed
here, I feel sorry for you.

To say that Mojave 3 sounds like a rip off of RHP and Mazzy star, does not
logically conclude with, "Doesn't that make RHP a Mazzy ripoof?" I'm sorry,
but that type of "reasoning" is just plain stupid. For those of you who are
popping capillaries right about now thinking that I am just flaming your
precious e for no reason...WAKE UP! I am not attacking e's character here.

Anyone who has ever given me a hard time for flaming e, owes me an apalogy

I realize that there are those listies out there, who think that e is some
kind of great contributer to this list. But (and I don't care if I'm alone
on this issue), I think e is a detriment to this list. He posts too many
arrogant, pointless attacks on other people, based on their opinions. Say
what you will, e needs to learn how to think logically, how to write
concisely, and how to respond to opinions without making petty innuendos
about the author.

Subject: FB: Cult of Ray review


        I received in the mail a free issue of "Musician" magazine (March
1996), and in it, _The Cult Of Ray_ was reviewed:

Frank Black
The Cult of Ray
(American)
        Frank Black is a lot like character actor Crispin Glover. Both
began their show-biz careers with sturdy, star-making
performances--Glover as the mousy Dad in _Back To The Future_ and the
distressed friend in _River's Edge_, Black with a guitar-fueled
juggernaut of releases by his old band, the Pixies. And both, over the
years, have gotten weirder and weirder, to the point where only devout
disciples appreciate their curious crafts. _The Cult Of Ray_, Black's
third (and self-produced) solo foray, is every bit as eccentric and
entertaining as Glover's recent cameo in _Twister_. It's a strange tour
de force not meant for myopic masses.
        Black, a noted UFO enthusiast, wastes not time jumping into his
fave subjects. The opening "Marsist" begins with a quasi-Kinks riff,
segues into a surf lead, seasons the mix with saturnine guitar squeals,
eventually does channel-to-channel battle with surf and feedback, and
lyrically notes the nifty pleasures of living on another planet. "Men In
Black" expands on the theory: The protagonist has just filmed a saucer
with his camcorder, and figures he'll soon be silenced. Appropriately,
the vocal identity Black assumes for much of this project is
marshmallowy, often buried beneath swamp guitars. Even the most ferocious
number--the pun-hyper "Dance War"--waives artistic personality for sheer
sonic overload. The guitar reigns supreme here; voices are purely
incidental. That contrast is almost palpable on the reverb-happy "Jesus
Was Right", the Phil Spector-ish "You Ain't Me", and the classic rock
textures (with surly '50s punctuation) of "Punk Rock City". To paraphrase
an old cliche, Black may not know art, but he knows what he likes.
        Occasionally, such single-mindedness does Black in--the
forgettable, overwrought title cut, for instance. But mostly it's
redemptive. Like all oddballs--including Crispin Glover--Black cares so
much for his personal causes, from space aliens to the salvation of a
good, fuzz-distorted tube amp, that you wind up being charmed, if not
converted, by his visions. --Tom Lanham

Subject: voting procedures


Before we all start voting, I'd like to suggest that
we follow the procedure that Lars has always gone by:
assigning points to what we vote for. I believe it went like
you want. So for "Best 4AD Release" you could do something
like

5 University
5 The Mirror Pool

or

10 Tipp city

or

7 Listening Cap
2 Gentle Creatures
1 Ask Me Tomorrow

and so on. You get the idea. If someone remembers better how it went,
then tell us. Ultimately it's up to Creig to decide how to do
the vote.

Hello
  I cant say i can not like much of the music that 4ad is putting out
nowadays, since i have neither the time, nor money to find all of these
groups. Tho slowdive is becoming interesting from all the mail they generate
here.  Anyhow...i will keep reading on what bands are what, and such.
  On to my subject.  I really dont like HNIA, sorry guys, but i did buy
their first cd, Livonia, thinking, ok, 4ad, should be good, nice cover :),
then i popped it in, and it was just noise.  If anyone is interested in
taking it off me hands, please lets, trade or something.  Dont have too much
else on the selling block.  Do  have a large treasure poster from CT, and
apuzzle from their FCC lp.  Oh yeah i collect vinyl too.
  Later guys.

Subject: athol brose


I finally ended up making one of those athol brose
recipes (the simpler one without cream) and I figure
I must not have used enough oatmeal or honey or something,
because it tastes basically the same as straight scotch,
which is fine, but I was expecting something more. Also
where can you find heather honey, or will any type of
honey work?

Speaking of scotch, does anyone know of anywhere to
get a bottle of 15 or 17 year old Bruichladdich
for less then $60. I had a taste recently and it
was incredible.

You're probably right. I've just heard from the mailing list that there
were some differences in samples, but in fact I never heard the CD itself!

>(raison d'etre for'96: new HNIA _and_ DCD, oh boy!)
That's Right! But I'm expecting much more from Warren than from DCD now...

sister ray is also in berwick street, smaller but cheap (although
probably not by american standards), good for this listy stuff, and
ambient and techno stuff like fax and warp.

ufo music is in hanway street, off tottenham court road, behind the
virgin megastore. new indie stuff, second hand stuff (early spacemen 3
stuff in there last time i looked), memorabilia.

rough trade shop is in neil's yard (as previously mentioned) and is
superb for the more obscure stuff. it seems like most of the staff there
have their own record labels (lissy's, er, the other one).

tottenham court road tube station (where they filmed the underground
scenes in 'american werewolf in london') is within 10 minutes of all
these places if you know which way to go (get an a-z). if your friend is
at all musical then tin pan alley (denmark street) is on the way to rough
trade and is worth a look in.

I was going to mention the whole Foetus Inc/Foetus Interruptus/Scraping
Foetus Off The Wheel etc thing too but obviously someone beat me to it. So
my contribution is Palace/Palace Songs/Palace Brothers. Still not what the
original question was about, though, so I guess there are no bands who
release albums with the same title but change their own name every time.
Plenty of artists who never give their albums titles, though - HoL, Peter
Gabriel (until the last two)

Oh, what joy a Food list would be! We could talk about Blur and er, Jesus
Jones...

[RHP not signing with RCA]
>Since when are we all

Especially RCA (=BMG), which is about the worst of the whole bunch. Look
what happened to the Wedding Present.

On another note:

Somewhat interesting article in the latest Guitar Player (?) about the
stupidly named and possibly not at all existent "post-rock" phenomenon,. The
angle is basically "Do you [meaning yer average rock guitar dude] have
anything to fear from bands with names like Tortoise, Laika and Pram?"
Stevie Ray, no). It also traces the origin of the genre's name: Simon
Reynolds had to combine three articles about Laika, Scorn and God into one
and invent a scene, otherwise it wouldn't get published. So that's how these
things get started...

Why is it that whenever bad things happen to the list, there's a guy named
Brian behind it?

Slightly thislisty:

        Does anyone have *any* information about the Quay Brothers?  They were
the geniuses who created HNIA's video for "Can't Go Wrong Without You".  Dark,
obsessive stuff.  I'm looking for filmographies, places to find their videos,
anything.  I just found:

"Street of Crocodiles"
"The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer"
"Little Songs of the Chief Officer of Hunar Louse"
and
"Rehearsal For Extinct Anatomy"

Any help will be greatly appreciated...I'm doing an academic study of their
work.

Thanks!  :)

Hey, BiZ,

You could call 310-555-1212 and ask Information.  And it is indeed called
the Record Collector.  A cozy little shop, really.  Anyhow, either that, or
you can send them a fax (the number's on the ESP Summer 10" sleeve).  And I
presume you mean Davin?
