hi there aaron,
in regards to your query concerning the film 'baraka', it is
available (though apparently still difficult to obtain.) i work at a
video store on the east coast and special ordered several copies for
the store from a distribution company called baker & taylor.
apparently, at the time it was released we were the only store in
the states (that b & t supplied) that ordered it! it's really a
goddamn shame, because the film is just brilliant. it rents
constantly, even in the cultural vacuum where i am (pittsburgh).
i have it playing frequently on the store monitors and generally
about 50-60% of the people ask about it.
unfortunately, i should point out that, for whatever ridiculous
reason, the video version is pan & scan and not letterboxed. for
such a beautiful 'art film', which is likely to be seen only by
those who appreciate film, it doesn't make a bit of sense as you
lose a third of the picture due to the cropping.
however, the rarer still laserdisc version, which i have, is
letterboxed. absolutely breathtaking...
although there are only two DCD tracks in it, they fit the imagery
like a glove, and the rest of the score is fantastic as well. anyone
who hasn't seen it should hunt it down.
try to locate it. if for some reason it's not available get a hold
of me and i'll see if i can help you out...

something similar, if not identical, was reported in the british music

Scandinavian indie whatever. A lot of bands that probably sound goofier

Mazzy are very hallucinatory and erotic and not so emotional or personal.
Their music has an epic quality to it, even when it is claustrophobic and
the sort of thing that belongs in a nice billiards joint. RHP, even at
their best, has to do with whining and obsession. There is a lot of self
loathing and cynicism and hopelessness running through. None of these
defining factors show their face on Ask Me Tomorrow. Mojave may inhabit
some of the same territory as The Jesus and Mary Chain or Simon Bonney,
but to group them with anyone, or even tie them too closely to Slowdive,
is, yes, a little lazy. Too much is new about it: the guitar style, all
the ghosts floating through the background, the stylish combination of
the laid back percussion, dispassionate strumming and impressionistic
piano (which could be credited to the mix, perhaps). But most importantly
Neil and Rachel have made the most of the unique qualities of their voices
and filled up the entire album with sounds you could never find
elsewhere, however hard anyone might try.

I've got a copy of the video which is widescreen format (letterbox, not pan
and scan). I didn't find it difficult to get hold of over here in L'il ol'
England - in fact I wasn't even looking for it and just happened to see
multiple copies sitting in an HMV or Virgin Megastore in that massive
shopping centre (sorry, mall) in Sheffield. It'll be the wrong format (as
in PAL, NTSC or whatever) for most other countries I would assume. Can
anyone shed light on these formats and their different countries' use of
them? I ordered LIAE from 4AD mail order and got NTSC which doesn't seem to
agree with either of my VCRs...
>although there are only two DCD tracks in it, they fit the imagery
>like a glove, and the rest of the score is fantastic as well.
There is only one DCD track in the film's score isn't there? (I can't be
bothered to run through it again.) My video does have a "bonus" music video
of Yulunga which is basically like a trailer for the film in that it's just
a load of clips from the film put together.
Does anyone else have that funny little promo CD of Dead Can Dance's (cat
no DCD1) with the monkey from Baraka on the cover? It has The Host of
Seraphim and Yulunga (Spirit Dance) on it (the former is the track used in
the film). I thought it was an odd promo when I found it - I'd never heard
of it before, and haven't since (it is on 4AD).
I found the film exceptionally inspiring visually. When I first watched it
it provoked a miriad of ideas for my own work (I'm a photographer), which I
was in two minds as to whether to write down whilst I was watching. I
didn't because I wanted to concentrate on the film and thought that the
same ideas would be jolted when I watched it a second time. They weren't.
I would really recommend that if anyone has a chance to see the film in a
cinema (theatre?) that they should go and do it. It's much better that way
- the quality is amazing since it was shot on 70mm film.
BTW, don't be dissapointed with the first 20 minutes or so of the film. I
was getting a bit bored, waiting for the DCD track to come on, but then it
really gets going and is literally awesome.
Ps. I fucking love Wonderwall and all the rest of (What's the Story)
Morning Glory. I especially love Wonderwall for the cello. And I love the
way they sing like they "couldn't give a shit" as someone said to me. It's
so Northern England it's funny and in a perverse,contrary inverted manner
is quite beautiful. I love people who can make the ugly beautiful - Joel
Peter Witkin, Vaughan Oliver, Simon Larbalestier, Jenny Saville etc. It's
so much more creative and skillful.

Charnel House has a web page (i don't know the url offhand, but a
netscape search oughtta give it to you). I don't know how current they
have kept it but they did have Crash Worship soundclips prior to the album
coming out. If they didn't have a current catalogue, i'd be surprised.

As we seem to rehash every so often, the Lonely Is An Eyesore
video is available in BOTH PAL and NTSC formats. It's
probably even still available in both formats, unless the
4AD catalogue says otherwise. I own an NTSC, non-bootleg
The 13 Year Itch video was also available in both formats,
although there were far more PAL than NTSC.
The AVAM video, I am almost certain was, again, available
in both formats, but for obvious reasons there were far more
NTSC than PAL copies. A call to 4AD would clear this up.

Someone asked earlier about the Michael Brooks collaborative effort with an
Indian musician. I believe this is the U. Srinivas and Brooks CD entitled
_Dream_. I have not heard this, but I am somewhat familiar with Srinivas
and his solo efforts. He plays mandolin in the southern Indian tradition,
Carnatic or Karnatic, and I have found his work to be excellent, if you enjoy
traditional Indian ragas. I think any collaboration with Brooks should prove
interesting and I'm on the lookout for this CD.
Hope this was of some help.

alas, i am actually going to perpetuate the use of the
list as my private little market.;)
the two kings of sweet that i had are pretty much sold,
but here is what else i have:
Laika-Silver Apples of the Moon-Domestic Version $7.11
i'm sorry, but i just couldn't get into the breathy vox
My Bloody Valentine-Feed Me with your Kiss+3-
CRE SCD 061 $6.09
flying saucer attack-vhf#11-$7.89 just a bit too
much abstractnesssssssss for me
and finally, since everyone is talking about Baraka, if
you call today, you too can experience the lushness of said
soundtrack for the low, low price of $eight(ocho,otto,ate)
it's on Milan records. speaking of movies, and since i haven't
been on the list for a while, was there any discussion of the film
Najda? or how 'bout Amateur? goddamed beautiful score on that one.
i'm not sure if anyone is still keeping track, but here are the KoS
numba's that i'm about to sell: 0401 and 1561.

"Ancient Lights and the Blackcore" was pretty dull IMHO. The Scorn track
was decent if not memorable -- I have a feeling it's a very heavily
remixed version of an album track -- and the Seefeel stuff was a bunch of
pointless Casiotone twangings, even more sterile than "Succour". The
Yanomami shamen were uninteresting -- I was glad it was audio-only so I
didn't have to see them blowing hallucinogenic powders up each other's
nostrils or later vomiting as a result of same, but unfortunately the
booklet does give vivid descriptions of such. And Timothy Leary was lame,
a tepid ripoff of Terrence McKenna's earlier and already damn lame
attempt at druggie-rambling-over-ambient-techno.

>anyone shed light on these formats and their different countries' use of

>agree with either of my VCRs...
NTSC -> USA
PAL -> Europe (except France and some others "little" countries)
SECAM -> France and some others "little" countries...
Pal and Secam are quite near, if you put a PAL VHS in a only SECAM player, i=
will be in black and white (easy for Brothers Quay's HNIA videos!)
(same for a SECAM in a PAL player).
But NTSC is totally different, and you have to find:
- A NTSC player (rare in Europe)
- and a TV which support 60 Hz (and not 50 Hz!) for NTSC.
Usually only big TVs (70 cm large... NICAM sound...) are NTSC compatible.
LIAE should be in PAL cos it's an UK released! (mine is PAL)
AVAM compilation is only NTSC -> compiled for american market.
Got to same pb to view AVAM. The only transcoder NTSC/PAL are professionnal.
If you find one, it may take =A310 or =A315 to convert the format!
Hope it helps!

I checked the web page today - the catalog (unless I didn't find the

There are two shows that are well worth seeing this week:
The Sugarplastic and Electric Company at Spaceland.
It's a free show, but I don't know when it starts.
Probably the usual 9pm, and these two probably go
on later. IT'S FREE! How could you NOT lose? Plus
more people HAVE to get into The Sugarplastic.
Think XTC. A lot of it. I don't have anything to do with
the band, I'm just a big fan.
The Sugarplastic again at Spaceland, 11pm. $5 before 10:30;
$10 after. I'm going to both shows.
1717 Silverlake Blvd, next to the 7-11.
21 and over, call 213-413-4442 for more info.

I usually head for Berwick Street - someone mentioned this but forgot the
name of the street. There are a few shops along here - the one down the
bottom next to the fruit market ( Is it Sister Rays ??) is very good for
ambient stuff. On the same side half way up the street is another (name
escapes me - sorry) lots of US and Japanese imports good 2nd hand choice too
- then at the top of the Street is Selectadisc, which IMHO is one of the
Funny someone recommended ROugh Trade in Neals Yard, as it was they who went
'ooh if you want that stuff, youll need to go to Berwick St ' !!. Is there
a Beggars Banquet in Kingston that supposed to be good - dont know meself,
cos Im up in the provinces !! - Selectadisc in Nottingham is good.
ps COuld Xtine please tell me how she resolved her getting Heavenly Voices
Part 3 problem ? Im after this also, but drawing blanks at the moment. Ta

Actually, as I understand it, this provision in the contract was put in there
by Throwing Muses themselves, so that they would have an "out" if they felt
that WB wasn't promoting the album enough, due to the myriad changes in WB
management in the past year or two and the danger of _University_ "falling
through the cracks." The promotion didn't happen, it didn't sell, TM left,
and Sire doesn't even exist anymore.

No, this is how it's done:
4AD(UK) does releasing and distribution for UK and Europe.
Throwing Music does releasing and Rykodisc distributing in the USA.
Who's doing the rest of the world, I'm not sure.

Yes,indeed, Guy. The Muses do rule.
And since you=B4ve mentioned it, I would like to ask you to be in a commite=
led by myself in order to launch a Belly/Muses fan-club. I really do hope
you like Belly too. Anyway, you=B4re still welcome. The plan is that we sha=
open a Belly/Throwing Muses Home Page on the Net. but before that we need
member. It will be awesome. At last, the Belly/Muses fan can get together
in one happy family,=B4cause where I live (Norway) noone=B4s ever heard of
either of the bands.
There will be plenty of room for discussion! Considering myself a guru at
these bands, I will have the ultimate control, and be the natural chief of
(My reign will be of a friendly character).
You can also write to Christine, who will be The deputy Chief,
since she was the second member. Reply quickly, and you may get the chance
of becoming The Secretary of the Tribe.
PLEASE TELL OTHER INTERESTED PEOPLE TO JOIN MY FAN-CLUB!
