Hmmm.  This is an interesting thread.  I, on the other hand, very much enjoy
HNIA.  Livonia, however, is my least favorite.  Do those of you who dislike
HNIA feel the same way about _Home Is In Your Head_, which is by *far* my
favorite HNIA release?  To me HNIYH is nothing short of brilliance.

Don't you think the news would have been posted here from the Cocteaus list
or alt.music.4ad, that there would have been a big obituary in NME or MM,
that sort of thing? Recently, I heard a rumour that you were a troll. Is
this true?

It means it's a dumb and confusing way to describe someone (on a par with
that MTV guy who said the band's music "gets deep into your soul and makes
you think" and you extrapolated too much from it. Perhaps the announcer was
under the impression that the Cocteaus were a new band. Perhaps it was a
completely different Liz Fraser who died. Perhaps this is a waste of time.

Well those songs you refer to liking (Morningrise, She Calls) I love as
well, but they are from about 6 or so years ago.  Times change, and so do
people and their art.  It's like expecting the Cocteaus to still be
sounding like they did on Treasure (which I am glad didn't happen, or else
we'd have never seen Love's Easy Tears or Victorialand).  As for Slowdive,
I thought the old 'shoegazier' EP's were brilliant, Just For A day is
pretty good, Souvlaki is pure dead brilliant, 5EP is pure dead brilliant,
Pygmalion is pure dead brilliant, and Mojave is brilliant (which also shows
how strong their songs truly are without relying on heavy effects). The
point is that I never hold an artist to having one and only one sound that
they can't stray far from.  Great music is great music, and if that entails
a *drastic* sound change from previous releases, I'm that much the happier
for their pointing my mind in a whole new direction!

A sad chapter in 4AD-L's history, indeed.  Liz was accidentally shot by a
drunk hunter who had mistaken her for an Oomingmak shortly after the
Twins' Heaven or Las Vegas tour.  Her death rather hindered the recording
process of their following release, Four-Calendar Cafe, which took quite

Sorry, the above is not 100% accurate. Although the Oomingmak incident
did occur, Liz was not killed, she merely went into a coma for three months.
The tragic part of the whole saga is her loss of vocal chords since the
accident. Fortunately Robin (with his knackers in a vice) has filled in nicely
on the recent Twinlights and Otherness EPs.

King of Sweet, largely remixes from the Home is in Your Head area, is a

The Dirteaters EP is eponymous work of a conventional all-femme noise

Mouth by Mouth alternates atmospheric sound contructs as from their HIIYH

How about the Multiplication Rock series of cartoons/songs that were a

Not exactly, though many scientists (and particularly mathematicians) are
good musicians, and music theory is extremely mathematical. And
engineering advances like the pianoforte, amplification, tape recording,
overdubbing, effects boxes, the TB-303 synthesizer, etc. have all
inspired great music through a collaborative process with great musicians.

>Jens, you me and C.P. Snow might bemoan the existence of two

>in the creation of great music, are you?

What I was objecting to was the assumption that scientific/ mathematical/
technical ideas were not worthy of inspiring good music, unlike squishier
ideas from the humanities -- e.g. that a band naming themselves after a
Wallace Stevens poem are cool, whereas one naming themselves after a
theorem from group theory aren't. An unfortunate prejudice that I think
is actually lessening with the growing hipness of the Net, fractals,
chaos, et cetera. Fractal geometry, at least as cool art, is certainly an
integral part of the rave & ambient scene. And historically, the old
scientist/nerd image was a great influence on Kraftwerk and Devo!

I have to admit that part of my outrage is because I've long had a dream
that if I ever started a band (ha!) I'd name it Venus By Radar, which was
the title of a planetary science symposium at Caltech back when I was an
undergrad.

I think this is a play on the album title - "Prazision" which may mean

In addition to Pentamerous Metamorphosis, I also own G.C.'s "76:14" and
Reload's "A Collection of Short Stories".  76:14 is very similar to Pent.
Met. -- although it does have a few slow places.  If you like Pent. Met.,

G.C.  Short Stories is an excellent buy, although I believe that it's now

either album.

Looks like DJ Krush, DJ Spooky, Skylab will be preforming along
with Moby, David Byrne, Laika, Meat Beat Manifesto, Tortise, EBN,
MY BLOODY VALENTINE?????, etc etc! It's a long show - from 8:30pm -

Looks like tickets ($12) have to purchased at the Whitney Museum,
Mondo Kims, Other Music, Rebel Rebel or Vinyl Mania.

There's also an info-line, 631-1065. However, this is not much
info about which bands will be LIVE and which will be "virtual."
Anyone know anymore about this event?

It's sponsored by the Red Hot, which is putting an album out of

It depends on what you mean by science. Taken broadly, all artists
(except the purest punks) are scientists, since they make a rational
study of their instrument, composition, lyric writing etc. Of course,
intuition plays an even bigger role than intellect as there are no
art-making algorithms that can touch the ones we're born with, but the
intellectual side is still important: there's a strong artisan aspect
to good art.

Taken narrowly, they're two different things, of course, but artists
can find inspiration in science, as in anything. Perhaps the biggest
influence is indirect: it's difficult to imagine the art of the
twentieth century having been made without the scientific advances of
the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; not just because of the impact
of technology on the world (which is one indirect route) but because
of the impact of science on philosophy and thence to art. Borges would
be a good example of a scientifically aware philosopher-artist. The
quote in my sig also seems in part scientifically inspired.

I bought Livonia when it was first released, spite of the fact that it was
an import (here in the U.S. anyway) and I had never heard of the band,
for two reasons: a) it was on 4AD, and at the time (1990), I had rarely been
disappointed by the label; and b) the cover was really nice.

I thought it was (and still is) a very good album.  I can see someone hearing
Livonia for the first time thinking it was just "noise", but upon repeated
listening, the melodies, repeated phrases (in the musical sense) and the
structure becomes clearer.  Someone earlier mentioned that Livonia is an
album you *have* to listen carefully to in order to appreciate.  I would
agree with that assessment.  Warren's attention to details makes Livonia, in
a way, the antithesis of Eno's ambient music (Music for Airports, for example).
because it demands you focus on the music.

I would agree with the consensus, that HIIYH is HNIA's best work, but I think
I would place Livonia second (of the 4AD albums, I haven't heard KoS).  Mouth
by Mouth is really good as well, but the more "rock" approach to some of the
songs does not make it as interesting (to me) as the earlier material.

While we're on the subject of Livonia, is the bonus track on the U.S. version
good enough to make it worth buying the whole album again?

First, a favor.  Could someone please forward the 4AD daily digest for 21-22
January 1996?  It was lost completely during downloading.  Thanks.

Second, there was some discussion about different versions of the "Lilliput"
t-shirt.  I have both, and the only difference I've noticed is that on the
mail order version, the 4AD logo is printed only once (in blue), whereas the
"Lilliput" version has it printed twice (in blue and in orange).  Has anyone
out there noticed other differences?

Third, about the RHP rumors -- might I suggest we take anything we read here
with a grain of salt?  I don't mean to disparage the veracity of the
original post (which may indeed be totally accurate).  What I'm saying is
that the internet is an ever expanding source of information,
misinformation, _and_ disinformation.  Moreover, it's becoming harder and
harder to tell which is which.  The relatively unclear applicability of
libel and slander laws (at least in comparison with the established print
media) means that internet info should be read even more skeptically than,
say, the New York Times.  Don't believe everything you read!  That said,
please don't hesitate to forward any interesting rumors you hear!

Fourth, about the "decline" of 4AD and all the "shitty" bands it's been
signing lately...oh never mind!  But I do want to say that _I_think_
(meaning that this is _my_opinion_) TARNATION is the best group 4AD has
signed since HIS NAME IS ALIVE.  If you don't have a deep and abiding hatred
of everything that is country (i.e., you can dig Patsy Cline, Uncle Tupelo,
Gram Parsons, etc.) you might want to check them out.

Finally, an non-4AD question.  I heard a rumor (on the radio) that THE BLUE
NILE will be releasing a new album soon.  Can anyone confirm or disconfirm
this?  See, rumor-mongering _and_ skepticism in action!

Oh, I get it. I'm supposed to say "gosh, you're so broad-minded when it

No, actually that would be an admirable quality. I, on the other hand, can't

'Blowback' is a good thing and you should snap it up if you have the
chance... its kinda limitied. Its another 'version' of 'blow' but its
very different. Some of it is just indulgent studio fiddle faddle, but if
you like swallows indulgence already then you'll like this one too.

there is an inbetween space between the dionysian and the apollonian. It
is often interesting to indulge completely in either, however the mark of
true genius is to be able to walk that tight rope from which you can
glimpse the chasms of chaos as well as the ordered orchards of elysium.

my jury's still out on the new Lush singles. The A-side is fair so
far... clever little bits of pop-ism-sarcasm... and i like the lyrics...
though I'm not sure it really gells as a song tight enough. There are
some interesting b-sides...
I guess my disappointment so far is that I really liked the 'tight'
songwriting on 'split'... god that adjective seems so lame... I don't
know 'Split' was such a triumphant return for them from the mostly weak
'spooky'... so I'm still wondering where they think they're headed...
they're definately still going for more of a pop song than the
atmospheric bit...

well i sent email to my friend in paris and he mailed me a copy of "la mort

dance

it seems to be a fantasy theme taking place in ireland in 1181 during the
norman invasion.. there are four parts to the book each named after one of
the first 4 dcd albums, and all the chapters are named after dcd songs. there
is a brief letter from mrs. lisa gerrard (tuschewski) in the front

"one of the most important compliments to a person and his work is to inspire
another man's work"

lots of quotes from dead can dance songs throughout.

esp dolphins/esp summer/esp continent. . .it's all the same. . .

they have a cassette only release on time stereo -- a tape only label run
out of the record collector record shop in livonia.  a cd version of the
tape, esp continent, was recently released in france, and is reportedly
available for $20 (cash or money order).  a 10" was released on farrago
records out of (austin?), texas.  i'm sure you'll here from hk on that one.
a mono 7" was planned for release on perdition plastics, but that was
shelved.  perdition is reportedly releasing a cd of the tape (don't know if
it'll be the same as the tape or w/ remixes) sometime in the future.  i have
the tape and the 10" (will have the cd soon -- hopefully), and both are
excellent.

ian also appears on "cooper time," another time stereo release.  some sort
of tribute to alice cooper (he's under the name "united friendly," and no, i
don't know what song he sings).

i don't have any ordering info with me, but if anyone wants more info,
e-mail me privately.  it's been discussed here b4.

two?  i knew of the scary verlaine ep, but if there's another one out after

ago, there was the possibility of farrago getting a few for u.s.

Well, you could try with "Terra Regina". You can find nice sounds,
even if it's a little exagerated here and there. This group
falls into my category of "DCD wants to be", which is not a bad thing.
I put them along with the australians Eden or Ordo Equitum Solis. They
all sound well, but they lack the "naturallity" DCD has.
I mean, when I hear a song like Summoning of the muse, I never
feel like Lisa is doing a teathrical-medieval-gothic stuff. She just
sings in a so honest and pure way, you'd never say she's pretending.
On ther other side, if you read a Mephisto Walz lyric like

        O'Protecteur
        We're so alike but too dark in heart
        O'Protecteur
        We're so alike but still apart

Hi fellow 'netters,

My name is Michal Hirschberger and I recently started using a magazine
subscription club in the USA that has a FREE 1 yr. magazine subscription
deal with your first paid order- and I have been very pleased with them.
They have over 1,500 different USA titles that they can ship to any country
on a subscription basis.   As for computer magazines from the USA, they
more of a selection than I ever knew even existed.  They have magazines for
most every area of interest in their list of 1,500 titles.

Within the USA, for their USA members, they are cheaper than all their
competitors and even the publishers themselves.  This is their price
guarantee.

Overseas, on the average, they are generally around one-fourth to one-half
of what the newsstands overseas charge locally for USA magazines.  On some
titles they are as little as one-tenth of what the newsstands charge.  They
feel that mgazines should not be a luxury overseas.   In the USA, people
buy magazines and then toss them after reading them for just a few minutes
or hours.  They are so cheap in the USA!   Well, this company would like to
make it the same way for their overseas members.  They are also cheaper
than all their competitors in the USA and overseas, including the
publishers themselves!   This is their price guarantee.  Around one-half
their business comes from overseas, so they are very patient with new
members who only speak limited English as a 2nd language.

Their prices are so cheap because they deal direct with each publisher and
cut-out all the middlemen.

They will send you their DELUXE EMAIL CATALOGUE (around 525K-big and
juicey) !)...if you completely fill out the form above.  It has lists of
all the freebies, lists of all the titles they sell, titles broken down by
categories and detailed descriptions on nearly 1,200 of the titles that
they sell.

Please do not email me as I am just a happy customer and a *busy* student.
I don't have time to even complete my thesis in time, let alone run my
part-time software business!  Please fill out the above form and carefully
follow the intructions above to get it to them via fax or smail.

They guarantee to beat all their competitors' prices. Sometimes they are
less than half of the next best deal I have been able to find and other
times, just a little cheaper - but I have never found a lower rate yet.
They assured me that if I ever do, they will beat it.

They have been very helpful and helped me with all my address changes as I
haved moved from one country to another.

They have a deal where you can get a free 1 yr. sub to a new magazine from
a special list of over 295 popular titles published in the USA.   They will
give you this free 1 yr. sub when you place your first paid order with them
to a renewal or new subscription to any of the over 1,500 different popular
USA titles they sell.

They can arrange delivery to virtually any country and I think they have
clients in around 45 or 46 countries now.  Outside the USA there is a
charge for FPH (foreign postage and handling) (on both paid and freebie
subs) that varies from magazine to magazine.  I have found their staff to
be very friendly and courteous.  They even helped me with an address change
when I moved from one country to another.

The owner thinks of his service as a "club" and his clients as "members"
(even though there is no extra fee to become a member - your first purchase
automatically makes you a member) and he is real picky about who he accepts
as a new member.   When he sets you up as a new member, he himself calls
you personally on the phone to explain how he works his deal, or sometimes
he has one of his assistants call.  He is kind of quirky sometimes - he
insists on setting up new members by phone so he can say hi to everyone (I
sure wouldn't want to have his phone bills!),  but you can place future
orders (after your first order) via E-mail.

He has some really friendly young ladies working for him, who seem to know
just as much as he does about this magazine stuff.  If you live overseas,
he will even call you there, as long as you are interested, but I think he
still makes all his overseas calls on the weekends, I guess cause the long
distance rates are cheaper then.

He only likes to take new members from referrals from satisfied existing
members and he does virtually no advertising.  When I got set-up, they had
a 2-3 week waiting list for new members to be called back so that they
could join up. (Once you are an existing member, they help you immediately
when you call. )  I think they are able to get back to prospective new
members  the same day or within a few days now, as they have increased
their staff.  I am not sure about this.........but if you email the above
form to them, that is the way to get started!

They will send you their DELUXE EMAIL CATALOGUE (around 525K-big and
juicey) !)...if you completely fill out the form above.  It has lists of
all the freebies, lists of all the titles they sell, titles broken down by
categories and detailed descriptions on nearly 1,200 of the titles that
they sell.

They then send you email  that outlines how his club works and the list of
free choices that you can choose from, as well as the entire list of what
he sells;  and then they will give you a quick (3-5 minute) friendly,
no-pressure no-obligation call to explain everything to you personally and
answer all your questions.

Once you get in, you'll love them. I do.


Sincerely,

Michal Hirschberger


ps.  please forward a copy of this message to all your friends on the net
who you think might be interested in it!  It is a great deal!  If you join
and then they join after you, you will earn a free 1 yr. subscription for
each new person you get to join after you join!   If you exceed 25
referrals, they let you use them to give away as gifts, for Christmas,
Chanukah or any other occasion.  Please be kind enough to mention my name
when you join.   I will then get a free magazine for a year for referring
you.
Thank you.

actually, it's entitled ESP-Summer and they have already put a 10" out on
Farrago Records (who is also on the list.. but can't remember the e-mail

had limited quantities on hand left, but if you do have a hard time finding
it, I know where there are 2 for sale at $8.99 each.

While speaking to Davin today at Time Stereo, we got to talking about the
ESP-Beetles "ESP-Continent" release over in France.  He said they at Time
Stereo (based at The Record Collector in Livonia) had requested a few from
Karina Square and have yet to receive them...  all he had seen of them was a
fax of the cover which he said was quite different than what he had expected.

He then said that Warren was heading down to Chicago next weekend to speak
with the people at Perdition (re the domestic release) and to put on a
hisnameisalive show while there (since that is also where Karin is living).

Unfortunately, Davin could not remember the name of the place, only that it
is next weekend (late notice again!) at a coffeehouse that seats only about
50 people or so and that it was already sold out.... hmmm.  Anyway, I'm sure
some of our Chicago-based listies could sneak in and confirm what I've been
telling them all along about the new stuff from Warren & co...  simply
brilliant!!!

just a friendly reminder: (sales plug)  i have a copy of the show hnia
performed a few days before x-mas on tape...  any interested parties please

"Do not even consider taking a taxi into Tokyo. It will cose the earth.
It will also take as long as the bus and much more time that the train.
In the bad old days before the direct train service to Narita was
introduced, and the taxi was the quickest means of transport, one teacher
took a taxi out of Narita airport, and the fare (30,000 yen) was more than
the cost of his flight to Bangkok!"  If you really want a deal on this
trip, take the Vassar shuttle.  Simply stand outside the airport and wait.
It should show up momentarily.  Standing and waiting in front of Main
dorm should also bring it, in a similar amount of time.

(see sig file below for why I zeroed in on this one)

Well that's an awfully _axiomatic_ view of "scientific" band names!! :)
 What's in a name etc. I take it no one here has actually _heard_ this
band(?); I'm intrigued (DCD reference) to find out more about them. Also,
I've never heard Red Shift, but I actually kind of like the idea of
referencing science in a band name. Now, Silverchair, _there's_ a shitty
band name!! (As are most band names here in Seattle...)

I absolutely love Otherness -- it's some of the greatest and most
interesting / innovative stuff I've heard in quite a while, and this coming
from one who has been disappointed by CT for the past few years. But then,
I'm a big Seefeel fan as well.

A while ago I heard something about a Seefeel remix of the entire _Treasure_
album (a fave of mine); I'm guessing that whatever root of truth was in that
rumor is realized in _Otherness_. Anyone know for sure?

You know, when CT are discussed on this list, good (or suberb) vs. bad don't
really work, since there are such different opinions on them, which
basically seem to boil down to two camps. From what Mike Borum said, is
"Milk & Kisses" more along the lines of 4CC, or TwinLights, or Otherness? If
it's anything like Otherness, I'm incredibly anxious.

No joke. Solid State has been gigging around the twin cities area
for a few months, and are a hit. I dont think they have any plans to rush
into a deal with a label, though. 4AD seems a likely possibility.

Drew sez:

I have no idea about a what Solid State is doing about a record contract, but to
comment on the snide "you must be joking"--I have seen Solid State 4 times now
and am going to see them again tonight and they are damn damn good; much better
than the Breeders of "Last Splash" (Kim and Kelly were not meant to play
together, I guess) and certainly more interesting than The Amps, although their
name sucks.  Kelly is no guitar virtuoso, nor is Kim, but Solid State have a
great lead guitarist and Kelly's song writing is A-1.
