In "Red House Painters", is it the houses or the painters who are red?

In "His Name Is Alive", whose name is alive?

In "Throwing Muses", are the muses the throwers or the thrown?

I know this sounds like a (poor) joke but I've become terribly
curious. Any help would be appreciated.

Paul,

scary verlaine is an ambient techno instrumental thing while the sun always
changes my mind is more in line with "traditional" spoonfed (but better than
any of the songs on the album, imo.)  can anyone confirm the existence of
the hibernation ep?  what's on it?  formats?

i've written to ian b4, and if it's available from him, could you just send
me the price, please?

thanks,

Subject: Michigan-noise compilation CD


While at Time Stereo today (i.e. The Record Collector) I picked up a new CD
entitled "Detroit Electric   'lighting a match under WATER' " ...
acompilation of sorts of various michigan-noise by-products.

here's a track listing:
1.michael dec - blimp pilot exonerated
2. gravitar - notomaton
3. the dirt eaters - no xpressway
4. mice termite - i'm freezing
5. godzuki - yomo & sue
6. astro boy - broken puppet on a stick
7. rocket 455 - stooge
8. princess dragon-mom - no used
9. outrageous cherry - sad & amplified
10. windy & carl - birds
11. nicodemus & matchez - when will you people learn
12. medusa cyclone - alienas/godzilla (1954) main title /sumatra rat
13. tasty bush - song from hell
14. demolition doll rods - what goes on

i haven't had a chance to listen to it as of yet, just thought some of you
might be interested in it...  if so, contact the guys at The Record Collector
at 810.473.8350
price is a paltry $11.95  (plus shipping??)

some of you might recognize a few...namely the dirt eaters, godzuki, astro
boy, pd-m, and windy & carl (who sound remarkably like a cross between love
spirals downwards and flying saucer attack - very distinctive and beautiful)
 outrageous cherry was one of the bands to appear at the Holday Noise
Festival that Warren Defever arranged during the past holiday season.

in-depth review forthcoming...

The houses are red.
Abraham Lincoln's name is alive.
The muses are throwing.

---from Paul Spirito:

> In "His Name Is Alive", whose name is alive?

I read an interview with Warren once wherein he explained that the comment
was made by one of his teachers about Abraham Lincoln.  He'd been napping or
something, and awoke to hear her say those immortal words, and thought it was
a really funny comment.  Or it could also very well be a cute story he
conjured up when asked the question - I'm willing to bet there's more than
one "answer" to that question.

Subject: Colourbox sample identified


A few minutes ago on the SciFi channel I heard one
of the samples from the Colourbox song "Just Give 'em Whisky".

"Satellite space station in operation for landing and refueling."

My head immediately snapped around to find it was an ad for
"Queen From Outer Space" starring Zsa Zsa Gabor. So that's one
more down, still dozens more. I've still got the full list
if anyone wants to see it (or maybe Kurt could post it again).

It's the painters who are Red in the political sense; this was apparently
the name of a house-painting crew in San Francisco (or Berkeley) that
Mark K. either was in or knew people in.

Subject: Bjork live & other stuff


Saw Bjork live at Manchester's G-Mex last Saturday (20th), and was stunned.
After a short set by the Brodsky Quartet, she came on and did a couple of songs
with them, before launching into an amazing hour long set of her own. Drawn
mainly from material from Post (in my opinion a way better album than Debut), by
turns it was quiet and elegaic (a harpsichord and vocals rendition of 'Venus As
A Boy') and thunderous. A new drum and bass version of 'Enjoy' with crushing
subsonic bass was barely believable it was so good. She finished with a
singalong encore of 'It's Oh So Quiet' - a little muted without the brass
section, but still hugely enjoyable. My first gig of '96, and what a start!

A few lines on some '96 releases next.

Moby's 'Everything I Wrong' remix album is, at two hours, way too long. Some of
the mixes are rather plodding house workouts that sound seriously dated. But
there are moments where it transcends the original - like an anthemic mix of
Into The Blue, and a truly moving reading of the title track. A mixed bag, but
worth the purchase if you liked the original.

Tori Amos's 'Boys For Pele' is by far and away her least commercial recording to
date. On first listen, tunes are hard to identify in a lot of the songs, but I
reckon it's probably a grower, so I reserve judgement for now.

The new Pavement single, 'Give It A Day', isn't exactly the band at it's best.
But being Pavement it's still an example of that increasingly rare thing - a
guitar band with relevance.

Finally, and out of the blue, a real classic. The self-titled debut album by
R.O.C on Setanta is incredible. I know it's ridiculous to make these sort of
claims in January, but it's going to be hard to top as my album of the year for
'96. Eclectic as any record your likely to hear, it runs the gamut from
Portishead-style trip-hop torch-songs, through St Etienne-esque pop, ambientish
technoish instrumentals, to giant slabs of guitar noise, and most things in
between. Amazing stuff. I know nothing else about them - the people involved are
called Karen Sheridan, Fred Browning and Patrick Nicholson. No idea where they
are from, or what their histories are. Can anyone enlighten me?

I am curious about this, I haven't heard any of their music before, but If
the tape is cheap I wouldn't mind starting there, how much do you need to
cover your costs?
