I find it interesting that one lumps Eden in with DCD.  They're on Third Mind
and you're added bit about their cultural background make it hard for the compar
son to work.  I remember from a Third Mind sampler that their sound wound
up emulating the Cure with its guitar-scape, but had elements of Near Eastern
rhythm (which you have now clarified as Persian).
        Actually now that I have sputterd so, I can readily see the comparison,
however, I think that with the info you had, the constant allusion to DCD, did
Eden disservice.  Please tell us more about them, with your unique info, than

At some point, today I think, einexile (in a not quite as meek a mood as I've

a grape:

>I thought someone said Chris Acland wrote a song for one of

>Nope.

Actually, the Acland/Berenyi song is called "Sweetie" and it appears on the
7" clear vinyl version (so you can have "Single Girl" three times in
identical versions even before the album comes out.
I put all 8 different songs onto a cassette and have been forcing myself to
listen to it daily in the car...and although it mortifies me, I'm actually
beginning to like most of them (yes, even pudding...tho I'm still asking
WHY?!?!?!)

Take heart, anyone who's disappointed...remember that "Hypocrite" and "Desire
Lines" were in no way an indicator of the album that followed...

their name is alive! i just got the new Volume (15) in and it's got a
cocteau twins song called "circling girl". i've only been able to listen
to it twice, but i have a feeling that when the album comes out, there
will be a huge gush of wind from all the sighs (not only in reaction to
the beauty of it all, but from relief). the volume also has songs by mick
harvey, scheer, and a remix of "everything's gone green".
        speaking of mick harvey, i found three used birthday party albums
        today (prayers on fire, hee haw, and one with a silly picture
        on the insert). all this for $13 each. not such a bad day after
        all.
ok, i really don't see how scheer is a breeders rip off. and what's all

Is this list necessary? Let's not do the review-the-review thang again. I
slagged the band's music and made a few speculations about their
character based on the art they produce. This is hardly an unorthodox and
widely frowned upon way of reviewing a record. If you disapprove, fine,
but it's not as if I've broken some Golden Rule and I'm supposed to know
exactly what your peeve is.

I sure would have liked to read a tirade like that before I wasted my $20
on the damned things, and indeed the tirades of others have caused me to
first listen to I would otherwise have mistakenly purchased blind.

Why not just set your objective-o-meter to the limit of your choice and

Wasn't aware I was in anyone's way. Just for the record, everyone on this
list does have my permission to buy any shitty single that floats his
boat.

I thought the art was the best thing about the singles. (This is not a
shot. The art is cool.)

Do I care? Is this insincerity supposed to throw their music in a whole
new light and render it catchy, beautiful, and otherwise pleasing to the
ear? When I realize that their horrid lyrics are not serious attempts at
gut wrenching poetry, will I then see the genius hidden beneath the
surface?

> sarcasm is just lost on some i guess

Yes, I'm afraid Eric still doesn't like the new Boo Radleys album and the
rest of us still fail to recognize the brilliance of Frank Black's most
recent works. Believe it or not, though, occasionally a person DOES
manage to notice an attempt at humor without actually laughing at it.

I must be one of the few people who like the new single. OK, its not as
ethereal as their early stuff but its got a dead catchy chorus.
Considering the folk,country and metal stuff that has been put out by
4ad recently its a refreshing change. It could be worse. They could
have gone 'dorky US punk' style that so many bands are copying over
here.
It goes back to that old question of what you listies are seeking from
4ad nowadays. I guess most are harking back to about 87-88 when the CTs
were on the label, plus the pixies were together, and UVS, and there was
even the prospect of a This Mortal Coil release. Times are changing.

Well, that IS in general why bad reviews are written. If you don't like
what an artist is doing, you criticize it and them. Your level of
vehemence depends upon your depth of personal feeling in the matter. By
the way it's "they're" not "their".

Sorry to pop your cork here, but any statement of opinion is by
definition subjective. You cannot state a personal opinion objectively.
All you can state objectively is a basic known fact, like "Lush is a
band." Once you say "Lush is a great band" or "Lush is a shitty band" the
statement becomes subjective. By the way it's "nobody" not "nobay".

Sorry, but I just have this thing about people knowing what they're
talking about.

No, I didn't. I just thought a lot of Brit-pop bands were doing sappy pop
songs.

I'm sure they are being sincere, but that doesn't preclude the right of a

This brings up an interesting point.  I will admit that it is primarily the
love of 80's 4AD material which first attracted me to this list.  This is not
to say that I don't think *any* music I like is being produced these days, it
is just that for about 10 years or so, 4AD produced music which seemed to be
of a higher standard than the music on most other labels.  It amazes me how
many of my favorites are 4AD bands (DCD, CT, HNIA, CoX, Masters-era PS, etc.).
It seems to me that this is a legitamate reason to read this list (I am not
inferring that 'H'y made any claims to the contrary).  As cz stated in the
Livonia thread, MbM showed "normalcy" on the part of HNIA.  It is precisely
this lack of "normalcy" that attracts me to bands, be they Laika or HNIA.  I
am afraid, that to my ears, there is too little to distinguish many current
4AD bands (Breeders, Lush, Liquorice) from the rest of the pack.  This is not
to imply that these bands are "bad" (although they might be), just that they
are not as intriguing to me as some of the 80's 4AD roster.

Pardon the babble,

New Order, cir 1981?. Originally a Factory 7".  The song appeared on two
other Factory ep's, and again on 'Substance 1987'.

I haven't seen mention of this so forgive this if this is actually
redundant material but Throwing Muses have been confirmed for two
shows in San Francisco, Feb 18 and 19, unfortunately at Slim's.
This is part of a warm-up tour for _Limbo_ so I'm sure other dates
will be announced (though I got the impression this may be a west
coast event only).

Does anyone know how rare or anything else about this disc?  The songs on

Except that you forgot Throwing Muses bassist extraordinaire Leslie

album), it all sounds correct.

Couldn't agree more about the ep (except I like Demystification - I remember the

Records), but it's their best selling ever in the UK.

The Acland song appears on the b-side of the 7" - don't bother tracking it down
