Before everyone gets too excited, if you look a little closer at the ad, it
says something like "DJ Krush, DJ Spooky, Skylab along with special
performers from some Red Hot album which includes performances by" and then
lists all those other acts. I was fooled at first too but it still promises
to be a great show. Somewhat deceptive advertising though.

time and livonia was so different from everything i was being bombarded
with that it made quite an impression on me. maybe i am being too
nostalgic.
        did anyone out there in the ones and zeros get livonia when it
was the only hnia mass-release? can you second this?

I completely agree with this. I bought Livonia when it first came out I
believe it was 1990 (Anyone to correct me?). And it does hold a very nostalgic
place in my head/heart. Like sean says, it was very different from anything
else in those days and hit a certain erie spot in me :)

There, you have now been seconded Sean :)

hi.  it's me, BiZ.  i just recently got a job (actually, it doesn't pay) at
the arts desk at one of the school dailies (circ 25,000 maybe?).  anyway,
i'm mostly going to be working with music.  i talked to the music editor
today, and he's recently been trying to straighten the place out by
contacting record companies to get on promo mailing list and stuff.

one of the companies he's been having difficulty with is ol' 4ad, so if any
of you can give me the name of a reliable contact person at 4ad (Strick9?
can you help?), that'd be great.  i'd also be interested in contacts from
bedazzled (steve?), american (for those too pure u.s. releases), kranky,
ipr, slumberland, spinart, creation (the u.s. folks), or whoever else you
can think of (astralwerks, warp. . .)  so if any of you can get me phone #s,
e-mail addresses, etc. for important record co. types, i'd sure appreciate
it.

i'm at:  eewittme@students.wisc.edu

thanks very much for your time,

I heard the mistaken rumor of Ms. Fraser's passing over a year ago, just
after the release of Four Calender Cafe.  I've been subsribed to this list
for less than a week -- so if the news were posted here, I wouldn't have seen
it.  I also know now through responses from other friendly folk on this list,
that CT have been releasing work since then.  If I do not follow CT as
closely as you would have me then you have my apologies.  This "troll" has
been too busy lately investigating the wider world beyond 4AD -- Dorado,
Warp, Bellissima, Talkin' Loud, Nu Breed, etc.  So for the record, the rumour
that I am a troll is TRUE!!

I also do not read NME or MM on a regular basis -- so feel free to fault me
for that!!

Sorry to be the instigator of your whiplash sarcasm, but as I understand it,
this list is for information exchange and not smart-ass responses.

thanks for the news Larry,

Subject: Bel Canto


For all of you interested, Bel Canto has a new single out 'Rumour' on
Lava/Atlantic
The track listing is as following:

1) Rumour (album edit)
2) Rumour (MAW 12'' )
3) Rumour (tribe in dub)
4) Rumour (abstract mix)
5) Rumour (abstract instrumental)

DON=B4T expect something as beautiful as 'Unicorn' or 'Mornixuur', both form
'Shimmering, Warm & Bright'

The song sounds like 'Birds of Passage' but in a lighter approach.
Got it a Tower Records for 4.99.

My point was that the micrometer/caliper thingy on the cover has the name
"Labradford" engraved on it as the brand name. Either the band futzed the
photograph (or had the name custom-engraved on a micrometer) or -- more
likely I think -- there is actually an instrument company called
Labradford that the band named themselves after. I haven't heard any
other explanation for their name.

By the way, a friend pointed out another non-lame scientifically-named
were mighty fine.) Actually he didn't directly point it out -- he was
wearing a tour t-shirt. Plate-o-shrimp time...

This is for you englands.

Next saturday I'll fly to London. This is my first time, and I am at
least "anxious".
I'd want to go to clubs, or pubs where I could hear 4ad or Goth-
related music. Someone suggested the Slimelight, or something, but he
said it opens just saturdays.
I'll arrive on sunday. Is there any place open on the week?

Later I'll go to Egipt, Turkey and Israel, but it would be too much to
ask if someone knows places there?
Anyway, before my return to Argentina (ugh!), I'll be in London again,
so I'll could go to Slimelight.

Any help... thank you.

Well, we'd probably see Titania of Faerie, along with the Endless
family, even if the Sandman is dead. The hellblazer would cry over
the Swamp Thing, of course.
On a terrenal side, we'd see Lisa Gerrard (with a new-short-hair-cut)
making a beautyful arabesque version of Pearly Dewdrops-Drops with
a Yang Ch'in.
After that, the old Liz, (that in Garlands) would come to make a
chilly death-song with the Choir of Flutes, just to say "goodbye" to
the new one, and start growing to make her live again, at the cost of
her own life.

Subject: Earwig


Hoping to generate another discussion on the brilliance of Insides, I
have recently gotten ahold of two Earwig albums...'Past' and 'Under My
Skin I Am Laughing'.  'Past' has a date of 1992 on it, and I am
assuming it is their first release.  It's a lot rougher than
'Euphoria', and relies more on guitars than drum loops.  I think its
rather good, although I was surprised the first time I listened to it.
'Under My Skin...' was released in 1994, a year after 'Euphoria', and
to which it is very similar.

So, is this all that they have released?  There have been several
discussions about Insides on this list before, but I don't remember
'Past' ever being mentioned.

Maybe my frient misheard the announcer?   I've always loved CT, even their
last album which was released about 2 years ago.  Do you know anything about
this?

Has Cocteau Twins released anything recently?  And are they still tied to

not herd.  i thought it had something to do with the "scene," and it did.
here's an explanation.

sutherland later used the phrase "scene, but not herd" to describe the
then-emerging glam-rock band suede, which is how the above conversation
resulted.  this was about a month or two after in ribbons came out, so the
guess is that sutherland saw the ps cd, then re-used the phrase as a sort
of self-parody.

WRONG!  Ivo insisted he is Paula Fraser and that Paula Fraser is an
imposter. Go figure?  So would the real Paula Fraser cut an album that I
could say is worth the vinyl or metal/plastic.

I've always assumed this was their punning response to the whole "Scene
that likes itself" hype, a tag that the British music press applied to
the shoegazer bands since they always went to each others' shows.

Does this appear [more traditionally] on the run-out groove of the vinyl
release?

It's a four song EP released in the US in December. It's as much a
Mark Clifford (Seefeel) project as a Cocteau Twins project, and is
thus the polar opposite of the acoustic Twinlights. If you like
ambient you should find it interesting. I didn't at first, but it's
grown on me, and I've come to love the hypnosis of "Seekers Who Are
Lovers", and the radiant opening of "Cherry Coloured Funk", at least.

The new album, "Milk & Kisses" is due in March, though someone posted
it's not to be released in the US until April. According to a review
by Mike Borum, it's superb.

about "whining and obsessing", I must disagree. After thinking through
RHP songs, I'd say that Mark never whines and almost never really
obsesses. If he does obsess, it's done with no small amount of subtlety.
His lyrics are usually quite emotional, but are also consistently
circumspect; that, I think, is the key word in describing his whole
demeanor as it comes across in the songs. I can still imagine someone
else holding a reasonable point of view that would see Mark in a somewhat
less positive light; this is just the way I see it.
        I noticed that those who criticized HNIA used "Livonia" as their
basis for doing so; but I think "Livonia" is quite an imperfect album;
too embryonic to yield a full taste of their sound. "Home Is In Your
Head" is the definitive HNIA album, however, and I think it should
definitely be listened to, more than once, before one makes a final
judgment about HNIA. It is far more diverse but also more cohesive than
"Livonia", which by comparison does seem to "amount to little", even
though it does boast "How Ghosts Affect Relationships", which I think is
possibly HNIA's best (maybe 'incredible' would get the feeling across
better!) song. On the whole, "Livonia" finds Warren and Karin meandering
here and there, only dabbling in the first stages of experimentation,
efforts which were to come to full fruition in "Home Is In Your Head".
Nevertheless, "Livonia" is good, and is certainly more than "just noise".
        As for "Mouth By Mouth", I don't have it yet (but I've ordered it
from CDNow, along with FB's "The Cult Of Ray", in defiance of
exhortations to not do so!), but from descriptions on this list, I have a
pretty good idea of what it's like, and I'm looking forward to hearing it.
        Thanks if you've read this far!

If you like the global communication/reload sound, then the remix of Blood
Music (called Pentamerous Metamorphosis) should appeal to you.  In my
opinion, it's a really good job.  There's only a snippet of the original
song in each remix track, and the rest is pure g.c. -- smooth ambient
techno, a bit on the light side, but with lots of interesting stuff going
on.

This isn't quite the distinction it might be; the Bammies are pretty
suspect, having been bestowed by the bucketload on Bay Area luminaries
like Jefferson Starship, Santana, Journey and (shudder) the Dead. Even
through the '80s, when there were plenty of good bands like Romeo Void,
the Dead Kennedys, etc. that were more deserving. I think these days most
of the Bammies are pre-allocated to Counting Crows and Four Non Blondes.

Yeah, well I might quibble a bit here and there and I'm no great fan of any
of the groups I wouldn't quibble over but I think Jens has reasonably well
knocked my argument for six.  So what does "Esplendor Geometrico" mean (any
Spanish experts out there)?  Can I restrict my theory to groups named after
mathematical principles, axioms, laws etc?  Can I exclude those group names
which have meaning to a layperson (e.g., "Hunters & Collectors") and/or
those group names which are pretty much part of common culture now (e.g.,
"Biosphere").

Ha, maybe you're right, but I don't see any marrying of scientific and
musical principles to produce great music.  I'm not convinced "two
cultures" has anything to do with what I'm talking, half facetiously,
about.  Jens, you me and C.P. Snow might bemoan the existence of two
cultures but you're surely not suggesting that science has much of a role
in the creation of great music, are you?  I certainly don't mean to suggest
that scientists can't make good music (Brian May :-) though I imagine that
maybe that sort of mind set is less well suited than others.

And I definitely don't mean to suggest that scientists & engineers are
incapable of appreciating good music.  Why would I?  I are one.

Subject: Re: Earwig


Jason Hull reports:
>'Under My Skin...' was released in 1994, a year after 'Euphoria'

That was a rerelease. Both the Earwig albums came out significantly
before they changed into Insides; I'm guessing 1991 or so. I have not in
fact heard either one of those albums, despite many recommendations.
Partly this is because "Euphoria", while it has its moments, is
cumulatively an album that really annoys me, for much the same reasons as
HNIA's "Livonia". Maybe I'll take a chance and buy one of the Earwig
albums used if I can ever find them.

I just wanted to know if there was some sort of mailing list for people

but my internet service provider is messing up pretty bad at this time and I

Marvyn,
  That is exactly what i find with this album. I decided to pop it in again
and listen to it, maybe i was a bit harsh or something.  But again i find
myself saying, noise...tho most of it is quite basic.  But when for a whole
song, the lead sings in one note, a pretty bad one at that...monotony.  Even
a song i HAD enjoyed when i first bought it, stank this time. :)
  The pictures sure are purty...but oh well.

Subject: my three cents


        i put hnia albums on such a pedestal that i will
       no listen to them passively. that is to say, when
      i listen to one of their albums, i won't study or read
     or do anything else that would distract me from concentrating
    on the music. warren's use of channels and sonic distortion
   is absolutely incredible. just the way that a repeated word changes
  sound while still being the same word is compelling. for example,
 the opening loop on livonia sounds like "jahwe jahwe" but changes
to "how do you how do you". way ahead of his time.
        it seems to me that the doom generation soundtrack is just
       some lame marketing device for an even lamer movie. all the
      tracks are purported to be "new" or "unavailable". bullshit.
     someone's just trying to get the old rarity juices flowing.
        i just borrowed a friend's copy of the M/A/R/R/S single.
       it kicks some serious booty. it was released here by 4th
      and broadway, a subsidiary of island, methinks. is it still
     available? i want my own damned copy! i had to buy the "my
    stepmother is an alien" soundtrack to get the song when i was
   a high schooler.

No. But the rumors about Michael Stipe, Eddie Vedder and Paul McCartney

Yes, two EPs in October and November: "Twinlights" and "Otherness". One

They left 4AD in 1991. Capitol just releases their stuff in the US,
they're actually signed to Fontana.

   It's not a "Daily" Digest. Rather, digests are sent out to the subscribers

Subject: Re: RHP- & HNIA-bashing


I have to chime in in defense of these bands...
OF COURSE obsessing is what RHP is about... but its wonderful. No he
doesn't whine, but it does take a little bit of investment from the
listener to get to a place where you can deal with the melancholy that
dominates these records. Once you can deal with that, they are really
wonderful things.

As for HNIA... I think all their albums are worthwhile... every on eof
them really 'pushes the envelope' as they say. I disagree that 'Livonia'
is 'imperfect and embryonic'. I think its a dark brooding masterpiece!
It is embryonic in the sense that its the first place that Wareren starts
playing around with the things that make a song go... but every time I
listen to this record its like a strange dream that hovers on the edge of
a really creepy nightmare and an oddly disturbing  rainy afternoon,
trapped in my flat and in my head...
'Home is in yer Head', I always thought was a bit too scattered... but
there's gems in the dust.
Good luck finding 'Mouth by Mouth' in my opinion this record is their
best work. Mostly because they bring all their strangeness much closer to
the surface of a pop song and they really amke you aware of the way they
are questioning music.
BTW there's a bootleg disc out there that's called "King of Sweet" by HNIA...
if yer into them this is wonderful.. dark meandering revisions of lots of
their best...

I cant wait for Warren's forthcoming collaboration with Ian Masters!

The name Bedazzled was lifted from the movie.  It came out sometime in
the 60's (?) and 'starred' Dudley Moore.  Quite funny!  The Bedazzled ep
is actually by a group called The Love Interest (aka Martin Atkins,
Chris Connelly, etc.) doing various versions of the Bedazzled theme
song, which was written by Dudley.

Hope that clears it all up.

Steve @ Bedazzled


PS.   there's some talk about Johanna's House of Glamour lately so I
thought i'd throw out what little info I have.  I do speak with Dan
frequently.  Right now the band is working on an ambient (?) project
under the name 'Spectral Assignment' for some ambient label based out
of NYC.  It should see the light of day later this year.  Dan says they
are having a blast doing this because they are just sending in tapes to
the label who is then 'totally reworking' them into some ambient
monster.

As for Johanna's proper, the last thing they did was 'As Far As Forever'
on the Bedazzled "Woke Up Smiling" comp.  I think it's one of the best
songs they've ever done.  Fred Abong (from Belly) has been playing with
them and a certain Ms. Hersh has reportedly expressed an interest in
producing some of their songs !!!

Hehe...while I love RHP, what Mark lives, breathes and shits is his
obsession with some old girlfriend/relationship...that is not completely
bad since it did drive 2 full albums and a smattering of other songs.

If people slag him because of his stage persona, I suppose it
is understandable. When they played chicago, the first time
at least, they gave me no impression of a bad attitude though.
A bonus was that they were hanging out on the floor between
their set and encore...now if only I were more familiar with
song titles and requested Japanese to English.......

Ah, you have almost taken the words from my mouth. After reading a few
posts about Livonia, I thought, "why not give it a listen". Now, the
fact that I haven't listened to this album in years should indicate
that it did not have much staying power. Some time later I bought
Home is In Your Head and fell in love. Livonia was the rough demo
for what was to come...if you have everything else, then try Livonia,
otherwise I would suggest saving it for last.

Yes.

>        As for "Mouth By Mouth", I don't have it yet (but I've ordered it

You will appreciate it ;} It isn't as good as Home Is In your Head, but
it is still magnificient. And then there is King of Sweet....a very
fun CD if you like HIIYH...since it is mostly outtakes from there.

Now for my plug...if anyone is looking for a copy of King Of Sweet,
I happened upon another one last week and will trade it to anyone
that can produce a copy of The Klaxon by And Also The Trees. ;}

they have numerous eps under the name earwig (sorry -- don't have any of
them) and a (temporary?) release on guernica called clearskin that no one
mentions very often even though it is absolutely brilliant.  i think (not
sure on this one, anyone care to back me up?) it's temporary b/c the catalog
number starts with TU rather than GU, which is what the other guernica
releases have.

last i heard, vinyl ink had several of the earwig eps.

the album is called pentamorous metamorphisis.  there are five tracks called
alpha phase, beta phase, gamma phase, delta phase, and epsilon phase and i
think are supposed to correspond to the 5 stages of sleep or something.
excellent ambient stuff with very little recognizable bits from the original
album. definitely worth it if you dig previous global communication and
FSOL-type stuff. oh yeah, it is a full-length clocking in at 60+ minutes.
