This is perfectly correct, at least for me.  It seems that there are always
plenty of good bands out there that would make great 4AD bands (and could use
the v23 treatment, as well), but they end up on other labels, while 4AD has
been signing fairly mediocre bands.  However, I guess I should admit that I
have not yet heard *anything* by *any* of the new acts that put out their 4AD
debuts this year (Kendra Smith, Liquorice, Lisa Gerrard, Tarnation, Air
Miami, Scheer, the Amps, Mojave 3).  Sorry, I've been pretty much broke all
year, and when I do have money to spend on CDs, there's always a non-4AD
release that's more enticing.  So maybe I should just bow out of this one
completely.  Never mind.

Jeez, I'm off the list for 5 months, and what have I missed?  So who exactly
IS still on 4AD, and who has departed?

I was thinking last night while listening to Hugo Largo's _Mettle_ for
perhaps the eighty millionth time that it's really a pity that they were
never on 4AD.  They would have been perfect for the label, especially when
_Drum_ first came out.  They would have been one of the very first US bands
to sign to the label, and they would have had an audience waiting for them
that (probably) would've been blown away by them.  And, the most important
part, they might have put out more than two albums before just giving up from
the sheer frustration of not getting anywhere on a major label.  Of course,
this is all just speculation, but damn, I wish they were still together.

Oh, and...

I take great offense at this, as should anyone else who has posted about
this.  I do nothing as a result of herd mentality.  I love Lush's older
stuff, having bought the _Scar_ EP shortly after its release.  I eventually
bought _Gala_, and still listen to it regularly.  However, I think _Spooky_
is crap, mostly due to the shitty, tinny production, but frankly the songs
aren't that great, either; I knew it was going to be downhill city when they
made the mistake of printing the hilariously - nay, embarrassingly - bad
lyrics to "Nothing Natural" inside the single.  I've only heard _Split_ a few
times, and it's not so bad, but it's certainly not great, either.  Or perhaps
I should put it this way: there are things I would rather spend @$15 on.

Please note that the above is my opinion only, and I do not wish to be flamed
for not liking Lush anymore.

I think Mark is originally from Ohio, and the band actually got started in
Atlanta, Georgia.  Admittedly there are tons of San Francisco references in
RHP songs, and I do find myself doing that "looking for Penny Lane and
Strawberry Fields" thing whenever I find myself in the Bay Area (and when

Subject: Re: LUSH


I've only read a fraction of most of the Lush-bashing threads, so
pardon me if I'm not fully informed of the issues here.

I bought the two "Single Girl" CDs yesterday.  Although the songs
CLEARLY indicate changes in Lush's sound and songwriting, I can't
say that I'm prepared to hate them.  Has anyone yet heard the LP?
And if so, what is your assessment of it?  "Single Girl" is only
a single, and I LIKE this song.  The others are merely b-sides.
I don't think there are many bands who intend for any of their
b-sides to be smashing good tunes (although bands like Adorable
and Cocteau Twins -- to name a couple -- have managed well). That's
why they were relegated to the status of "b-side" after all, right?

I Granted, Lush's b-sides to-date have mostly been really good songs,
IMO. But for now, I'm going to sit tight and wait to hear "Lovelife"
before I make any harsh judgements.

Just my chunk of change...

Subject: Shelleyan Orphan EPs


Besides the three albums we all know and love
(ie. Helleborine, Century Flower and Humroot)
with their notable differences between the US and UK
versions that I've posted many times before,
they had the following three EPs on Rough Trade:

RTT 170 Cavalry Of Cloud / Tangled Perpetual /
        One Hundred Hands (for strings)

RTT 207 Anatomy Of Love / Harmony Drone / Theme

RTT 217 Shatter / Tar Baby (live) / Amanite Muscaria /
        Timeblind

These are all 12" EPs. I know the last one is also available
as a 7" and on CD, but I'm not sure about the others.

Scattered songs I know of:
the aforementioned "Ice" on a Columbia promo CD
"Suffer Dog" on Artists For Animals - The Liberator
  (this is a song that only Jemaur Tayle sings on)
some cover song on a tribute album-- I really don't remember
  what this was (maybe Velvet Underground or Lou Reed???)
There's also supposedly a promo release of "Burst", but I've
never seen it.

As for videos, all I know about are Shatter and Burst (although
I've never seen the latter-- can anyone tape it for me?)

Haha, yes. I never thought anyone could compare Lush to the Alan Parsons

I used to be in a band with someone who thought Lush were the greatest thing
since reservoir-tipped condoms (not her actual words), wrote lame Lush-alike
songs and insisted on attempting to cover For Love, even though she had the
chords all wrong. I soon learned to hate that song with its solo - lots of
the same notes played in succession in a supposedly quirky rhythm, something
that became a formula in all of our own songs. I'm not been too keen on Lush
since then.

I think its really a maturation for RHP... they manage to staadle a fine

        I *love* this service. Most of the stuff I'm buying now I can't
find in any store.
        Suddenly, Tammy! - [self-titled]: now playing, "on my walkman
this morning". I already had "(We Get There When We Do.)", and quite
liked it, so decided to scope out the minor-label debut. They remind me a
*lot* of Throwing Muses. It's in the vocals, the lyrics, the idiosyncratic
time-signature changes; even the bass player sounds a lot like Leslie
Langston. This one is a bit more avant-garde and quirky than its
major-label follow-up, which is to be expected, I suppose. "Plant Me" and
"Lamp" are great.
        Frank Black - "The Cult of Ray": pretty middling. Advance word on
this was more or less accurate. I don't think it's *bad*, just extremely
complacent, which is exactly what I think boondogs Belly. Unfortunately,
I think complacency is a major component of the Frank Black persona.
The upside is, "Teenager" will sound even better.
        His Name Is Alive - "Mouth By Mouth": a most pleasant surprise.
The first 6 songs or so blew me away. I don't think they lose anything at
all in their use of the 'full band' sound. 2/3 of the way through, it
does start to drag a bit, though.

Sorry to keep using the List as a Rolodex(tm), but in transition between home

Does someone have the phone number for CD Europe? Better yet, does anyone
have an e-mail address for a direct contact? I don't have telnet access, so
that information does me less than no good. And that's all I can find. :( A

balance. HELP!

To return a favor to my good buddies on the List:
someone (you, Heffalump?) asked for the address for Charnel Music.

Just kidding. :-b

Thanks to those who helped me with the Slumberland #, btw. Now it's just a

Briefly entering into the Lush pro/con fray, I'll come to the
defense of Spooky significantly before anything after that
album. What a few people have said they find annoying about it
is exactly the reason I love it. Treble, drowning in guitars,
cloying, Guthrie production... for me anyway, this is what
makes it tower over the likes of Split, which is still a good
album, but not great. Even the best song on Split, "Lit Up",
I don't really find nearly as memorable as "Tiny Smiles"
or "Fantasy". Then if you go back even farther, you come
to what I would call the masterpieces: "De-luxe" and "Thoughtforms v.2"
In fact the whole Mad Love EP is right up there among the best
things 4AD has ever put out. So I guess my point is that
you can count me as another Spooky-phile. One of these days
maybe I'll even hear the new EP. My question though is this:
who's the dolt who designed the packaging? Hello?! It
strikes me as the WORST thing v23 has done in a very long time,
maybe ever.

Subject: Forwarded Interview with Lush


The article below was printed in "The Newspaper" (Issue 15, Volume 6,
January 26, 1996) - a Loughborough student compiled free newspaper. I
thought it may be of interest to some of you.

It was written by a gut who calls himself Sydeburns, and can be contacted
at  if anyone wants to get in contact with him - if you
do say thanks for forwarding the text to me so that I didn't have to type
it all in for you guys...

(Lush reckon they haven't changed that much!!!)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What's going on?  Lush at the Union the night they're on Top Of The Pops?
Number 21 in the charts?  Shurely shome mishtake, as they say.
No it isn't, it's all true.  Booked to appear before 'Single Girl' went
indie AWOL and into the households, Lush are in the middle of a tour to
promote the single.

 The problem is, that so much promotion has gone on, I'm not utterly sure
they feel like doing any more.  Radio 1, The Chart Show, postcards, 2
versions of the single available, a telephone number that you can call if
you want to hear it in all its poptastic glory, and some rather fetching
t-shirts that bear said number along with the legend 'Single Girl', an
appearance on Top Of The Pops and a 10-or-so date tour they're almost
through when they reach sunny Loughborough.

For the uninitiated, here's how it goes.  Lush debuted in 1989 on by now
the extremely well respected 4AD, with the fabulous 6-tracks they called
the 'Scar' E.P. The line up is Miki Berenyi, vocals and guitar ; Emma
Anderson, guitar and vocals ; Steve Rippon, bass ; and Chris Acland, drums.
The spring and autumn of the following year saw two further singles, the
'Mad Love' E.P featuring the wonderful 'Deluxe', and 'Sweetness and Light',
followed in December that year by an album collection of these E.P's called
'Gala'.

Abba

This also featured two extra tracks, a cover of Abba's 'Hey Hey Helen', the
reason for which Emma tells me in the interview was for an Abba tribute
that was never released, and that they chose it because it was "easy to
play", and another version of 'Scarlet' from 'Scar' that was recorded for a
Melody Maker tape.  Things have changed since then I think.
Anyway, back to the biog. 1990 brought Lush ever growing popularity , and
then they disappeared for 9 months, and on the day this writer started
university they brought out the 'Black Spring' E.P, followed soon after by
the most beautiful of all in 'For Love'.

Spooky

 Their first proper studio album 'Spooky' was an airy-fairy affair, full of
great songs, a great album most critics of the day seemed to feel was let
down by the immensely ethereal, shall we say, production treatment given to
them by Robin Guthrie of the Cocteau Twins.  They had a successful album on
their hands, then they disappeared again.  Steve Rippon had already left to
concentrate on his novel writing after recording the album, and he was
replaced by Phil King for the ensuing tour.
Almost 18 months later, after a couple of taster singles including the
ferocious 'Hypocrite', came 'Split', their second long player.  The sound
was stripped down to basics, this time produced by their sound man.  Some
of the critics loved it, some didn't, but either way it didn't sell very
well.  Which brings us up to date....

The Dag Bar

Sitting in the Dag with all four of them isn't quite as easy an experience
as I had previously imagined it might be,  they're tired. They did the
recording for TOTP yesterday, and a gig in Bournemouth last night, as well
as fitting in time to get wrecked....

So, then, how have things changed since 'Gala'?  "The production's moved
towards a natural sound", says Emma, "It sounds more like us", and goes on
to describe how they much preferred 'Split' to 'Spooky', and how they'd
like to sell as much with the new album as they did with 'Spooky', whilst
maintaining the progression towards a cleaner sound following on from
'Spilt'.  With their move into the households with 'Single Girl' this is
quite plausible. So how will their appearance on the nation's most loved
music programme affect all things Lush?

Top of the Pops

"Top Of The Pops won't change things drastically, it's a nice way to start
the year.  We've been doing it that long that we're not that impressed",
Emma answers, while Miki claims that she would have been surprised if the
single hadn't made it into the Top 40 with "It's all marketing, this single
had to get in because all the moves were made".

A new single 'Ladykillers' will be coming out pretty soon, followed by the
album 'Lovelife', released on Miki's Birthday, March 18th, and they'll be
touring again to promote, this time at completely different venues to those
on this tour.  They hope that more people will hear it than heard the last
one.

People that f*** us off

The lyrics will be more from the usual inspiration, what Miki says are
"People that really fuck us off", the new single being as poppy as 'Single
Girl', but with a darker edge.

I ask them about longevity, and they cleverly remind me that they've been
around seven years now, to which I reply by asking them about those large
gaps between clusters of releases.

"People think we're having time off. The time between releases is the same
as with Blur, but because we're not in the public eye, people assume we've
faded", replies Emma quickly, and I ask whether any of the old stuff will
appear in their set tonight.

Greatest Hits

"'Deluxe', 'Sweetness and Light'", from Emma, while Chris describes it
jokily as a 'greatest hits package'.  The band seems concerned that they've
been perceived as having reinvented themselves, while they themselves
consider themselves 75 percent the same.

Well then, more promotion to do, possibly more TV, Miki reckons she can see
why people get bored of it quickly.  It's quite surprising, you'd think
she'd be used to it, as Miki, in a very small way, appeared as an extra,
albeit in her mother's womb, in the James Bond movie "You Only Live Twice".
Her mother one was of a number of Japanese beauties that you'll probably
notice next time you see it.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The previous week there had been an article in "The Newspaper" in which a
4AD rep said that he felt really guilty having to keep phoning the group up
every morning to tell them of a load more appearances they had to do that
day - the editor told me that Lush were really tired and a bit grumpy when
being interviewed - but that they did have a hangover as an excuse...

Sydeburns also wrote a rather amusing review of The Amp's Pacer album in
this week's offering - he gave it 5 out of 5, and whilst being quite
cutting in places, was very praising mostly including "some of the most out
of time drumming" he's ever heard.

Hope you enjoyed the article,

Ha, I was wondering if anyone was going to make the comparison. I also
noticed the distinct influence of ol' Laughing Len on this record,
especially on "Candle Song 3" and "Where Is The Love". Rachel's backing
vocals are also not quite as cloying as those of the backing singer(s) LC
used to use on songs like "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye".

There's an interview with Mojave in the latest AP, with a rather startling
photo of the band. Neil looks much scruffier than ever before and Rachel's
new haircut appears to be self-inflicted. Anyway, it's mostly about
Slowdive, as it turns out, and the catastrophe that was their relationship
with SBK and, towards the end, Creation as well. Worth reading.

Larry

--------------------------------
Yeah, Cohen and Nick Drake are big influences on "Ask Me Tomorrow,"
as well as a few other oldies.

For those interested I have a short interview with Rachel in my Dreampop
zine.

Still working in the road trip size with frames for Netscape 2.0 and sound
files.
as well as some new LP reviews; they'll be up by Tues.

Rachel's interview can be found at:


Someone mentioned awhile back that 4AD is running into financial difficutly.
My interview seems to back this up, e.g. corp. sponsorship.

The Lush/Scheer(SP?)/Mojave tour this spring is being
sponsored by Miller Beer and Rolling Stone magazine. I have mixed
feelings about it, but if it means the difference between getting to hear
Mojave live and not, I guess I'll have to accept it. Mind you , I don't like
it, but....

Other stuff: it seems a NYC-based indie called Instinct Records is
licensing a lot of FAX stuff for U.S. release. I pixed up the FAX I compilation
for $16 (2 CDs...not bad at all). Has anyone else taken a listen to the
"Heat" soundtrack? Lisa Gerrard is on it as well as a great deal of work
by Kronos Quartet; also some great work by Brian Eno and others....I've heard
it and I think I am going to pick it up. I liked the movie, so that helps....

Also, can someone give me a good LP of Auchtere's (sp?) to start with?
There's a new shop called Other Music downtown NYC that carries
a lot of this good stuff.

Cya,

Joseph Burns made the polite inquiry:

I'm only distressed that I now have to look harder for good music.  It's
still out there.  And a great deal of more post-CT 4ad product remains
that Perry hasn't plodded across...

Why stay?  4AD, at their peak, defined an aesthetic that it has spent
years now trying to disavow.  When a print review cites a band as being
"4ADish", or as listmembers would say, "thislisty", I think we can consent
that they're not describing an affinity to Scheer, Tarnation, RHP, Spirea
X, or Pixies.

The embryonic 4AD list discussed primarily music from the label, but
that's an absurd limit when the best "thislisty" music hails from other
provences.  The more prolific listers are valuable fount of music
knowledge, evaluated from a shared aesthetic perspective.  I trust their
opinions far more than those expressed on usenet or the web or in the
press.  Einexile, for instance, was instrumental in overcoming my
aversion to the techno I was familiar with to go exploring in the
"Ambient Techno" section of the shops.  Autechre's "Amber" puts me into a
"4AD" frame of mind better than anything I've heard on the label for years...

4AD's music used to touch upon something far more ... awe inspiring ...
than nonclassical music has ever aspired to.  At moments, it was a
secular hymn... Take Cocteau Twin's "Five Ten Fiftyfold" or DCD's "Ocean"...

Now, they've touched the ground, and their best music is that of
consolation (Mojave 3 and Heidy Berry), rather than invocation.

But on Spooky even the bass sounds trebly, which has got to be one of the
most annoying sounds ever. Plus Guthrie made them use those electro drums or
whatever they're called. And the practice of sticking tons of chorus on the
guitars and vocals on every song is lazy and uninspired, to say the least.
But their move into riff-rock circa Hypocrite is still the dumbest thing
I've heard them do.

Subject: Throwing Muses/HNIA - Chicago


  Does anyone know if Throwing Muses will be playing any shows in Chicago
  soon? I know that they're performing in San Francisco on 18 February.

  And what about HNIA ... any more warm-up shows in Chicago that will seat
  more than 100 people with a little advance warning of the show date?  If
  anyone on the list attends tonight's Chicago show at Lunar Cabaret, can
  you post a short review?

  Thanks,

Subject: Folk Implosion/Sebadoh


this is my understanding of folk implosion, I have a feeling I'm
wrong so please corrrect me.

I WAS TOLD:

        Folk Implosion was something that Lou Barlow and some dude
        named Eric ? did on friday and saturday nights when they were

        in high school.

        Then came Lou Barlow in Dinasour Jr.

        Sebadoh was a side project  that then became more full time

        as lou and Dino. Jr. separated.


Now before you condone me for not having a clue, Fill me in on what's
correct

By the way, Sebadoh is one of my favorite groups, the only thing is
that The only two things I have of them are The Freed Weed and 4 song
cd


Any info or help is much welcomed.

Oh goodie -- I was afraid I was the only one who heard the Muses
similarities. The early-Kate Bush influence is so obvious as to not need
mentioning (he said, mentioning it) but the Muses flavor is a bit more
subtle.

>It's in the vocals, the lyrics, the idiosyncratic time-signature changes

Maybe not quite so much the lyrics, which tend to be happier and not so
much "I'm about to lose my mind" as most of Kristen's output.

This was really mostly just an excuse to plug Suddenly, Tammy! who are
just too fabulous. Don't let the pretty-stupid name fool you. I just
recently noticed that their singer sang backup on the Lilys'
also-too-fabulous "In the Presence Of Nothing" and one of the other band
members helped engineer it.

In other words, just like Catherine Wheel and the House of Love before them.
 You know, I *really* hate Fontana.  I was just sure that Cocteau Twins would
be considered above all this nonsense...or, heaven forfend, that they might
actually use their pull to keep this shit from happening.  I guess the one
saving grace here is that there's nothing on the vinyl you can't get on CD
(unless you miss out on the wonderfully limited second single).

I believe I spooted it on the Camper website, I don't have my Camper album

but they usually have two or three diffrent drummers so it's entirely
possible that he did play with them on the 120 minnutes set.

From: Derek Innocent (100702.123@COMPUSERVE.COM)
Subject: Disco Inferno / Nick Cave / etc


I know there are others out there who mourn the passing of the great Disco
Inferno. Some news in today's Melody Maker. The album recorded for One Little
Indian, 'Technicolour', was shelved when the group split. Whether or not it will
be released is under discussion at the moment (all very political music biz
stuff). Ian Crause, however, has a new group called Transformer (crap name).
They have contributed one track to the forthcoming Wire tribute LP (also
containing a track by Lush fact fans)

The new Nick Cave album Murder Ballads has been universally praised. It's not as
good as everyone makes out. The subject matter becomes a wee bit tedious after a
while, and fifteen minutes of the violence-fest that is O'Malley's bar is more
than enough for anyone to take. There are some great tracks on it though, just
don't expect consistency.

The new LFO album advance is pretty damn amazing, and almost worth the wait of
nearly five years. It doesn't really show an enormous amount of progression from
the first - the same only better I think.

Finally, I got Volume 15 to day which includes tracks by Scheer and the C******
T**** amongst others. Not listened to it yet.

By the way, I get heartily sick of people who still cling to the myth that 4AD
is some ethereal, wispy label, and that everything they put out has to conform
to these stereotypes. There was just a brief period in the mid-eighties when the
likes of DCD and the Cocteau Twins dominated. Prior to that there was the
Birthday Party, and that tradition was continued with the likes of the Pixies
etc. It's always been a healthliy eclectic label - after all, the best selling
4AD single ever was the groundbreaking Pump Up The Volume. Isn't it about time
you bloody goths out there woke up to the fact that the eighties finished six
years ago - time to move on.
