Hello.

I'm also an obsessive Pale Saints fan (or at least getting there).

I've heard much commotion about Spoonfed Hybrid and ESP (etc.).  If it =
wouldn't be too much trouble, could you please describe those two =
projects?  I've heard many people describe the sound of Spoonfed Hybrid =
as being like "Little Hammer" on In The Comforts Of Madness ... slow, =
soft, experimental.  Would you agree with that description?

Also, what does ESP sound like?  Would it perchance resemble any of the =
traditional Pale Saints material?  (Perhaps I should specify what I mean =
by traditional here.  I have in mind songs such as: Half-Life, =
Remembered; Baby Maker; Colours And Shapes; Language Of Flowers; Time =
Thief; and the like.)

Thanks.

Subject: Rachel's and stuff


Got the Rachel's LP 'Music For Egon Schiele' today - what a wonderful record.
Twelve tracks for a trio of cello, piano and viola, some of the tunes are
unbearably beautiful and sad. I'd recommend it to anyone. All the tracks are
composed by Rachel Grimes - this woman is a genius. And Jason Noble doesn't even
appear - it's an easy life having your own band.

Also got Marta Sebestyen's new LP Kismet. She has such a beautiful voice. She
sings a lot of European / Indian stuff here - diversifying from the usual
Hungarian. There are two moving Irish ballads sung in English. For anyone not
aware of her past work, she is a Hungarian folk singer whose voice is not unlike
those found on the two stunning Voix Bulgares compilations 4AD put out in the
80s.

Someone posted that Warners have scheduled a releas date for the Blue Nile LP of
May 28. Wow. Still I'll only believe it when I've got it. I first saw a release
slated for March 95 in a French mag. Then May, then August, then November. I
remember Paul Buchanan apologising to us about Hats taking five years when I saw
the band at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester back in September '90. Soryy it
took so long, the next one won't I promise. Still 10 tracks in seven years
compares with seven in five. Look forward to the tour summer '97.

The repress has a grey label with the now familiar 4AD logo. No messages are on
the run-off grooves, and the sleeve also has the 4AD logo (which only appeared
c. 82-3). I would guess the original isn't worth that much, simply because the
repress is not yet out of print. Dunno about the differences between this
version of Feedback Song and the Natures Mortes version. If there even is one.

AAAAAAH! AAAAAAH! AAAAAAH! So v23 has joined the Rolling Stones in being

It's just another sign of the End Times. Has Jack Chick written any comix

It's been in the FAQ for probably 6 months or more, ever since the last
outbreak. Doesn't anybody actually read the FAQ?

The thing that annoys (and one one level amuses) me the most about the
Good Times message is that the message itself _is_ the virus -- that it
harnesses people's fears of computer viruses to induce them to spread an
extremely virulent meme-virus that shows no signs of going away after,
what, three years or so.

Not at all! It's minimalist, a lot of piano and pencil guitar, very few
electric guitar, and Warren samples...
the voice of Ian is really above the music, well hearable.

(this is for the ESP-Continent CD (=ESP-Summer Tape); I'm still waiting for
the ESP-Summer 25cm remixes... it's on the road...)

esp summer/dolphins/continent is pretty much like laurent described it --
minimalist, accoustic, but beautiful and decent nonetheless.  it took me
awhile to warm up to this one, but i'm sure that once i get the cd, it'll
find its way into my cd player a lot.

spoonfed hybrid is a bit more difficult to pin down.  for one thing, it uses
a lot more synth than the pale saints.  while the mood may be similar to
some ps compositions (little hammer is a good example), the music itself is
more varied.  it's really dark in some spots (pocketful of dust), soars in
others (tiny planes), and lurks in others (lynched).  i'd say spoonfed has
more emotion than pale saints and is smoother and prettier (though com and
mrs. dolphin remain my faves) than ps.

the scary verlaine 7" explores techno (don't know if they'll continue along
this vein or not. . .) on the title track while "the sun always changes my
mind," is more like the old material, but better (as i've mentioned before).

i'd rank 'em like this:

1.  com and mrs. dolphin and the children break flexi, too.
2.  spoonfed hybrid s/t lp
3.  flesh balloons ep
4.  scary verlaine/the sun always changes my mind 7"
5.  in ribbons lp and throwing back the apple ep  (hair shoes is still my
favorite ps song. . .)
6.  esp summer/continent lp
7.  esp summer 10"
8.  slow buildings (very spotty, but king fade is quite good, imo.)
9.  fine friend ep

i actually like all the above releases, so don't let the heirarchy mislead
you.  if i had it to do over again, i'd buy the spoonfed stuff before the
esp stuff, but i'd still buy all of it (bad grammar. . .)

well, i've rambled on long enough.  bye.

Subject: Ramblings about 4AD and HNIA 7"


I sort of remember hearing about a HNIA 7" some time ago.  Does anyone
remember what label it was on or when it was supposed to be released??
Also, not to start an arguement, but I came to the realization last night
while listening to Pixies' "Surfer Rosa" that 4AD, TO ME, has been really
influential on today's music, but have gotten little recognition.  The
albums/artists I BELIEVE changed the face of music, and without whom 4AD
would just be another boring independant record company woul have to be

1.Pixies - "Surfer Rosa"
2.Cocteau Twins - "Treasure"
3.His Name Is Alive - (All of their albums are sooo good, and sooo
different and unique it's impossible to pick out which one was the most
influential)
4.Throwing Muses - "House Tornado" (import version)

Although I am a big big fan of a lot of other 4AD bands (DCD, PALE
SAINTS, Lush, Mojave 3, Tarnation, Amps, Belly, Breeders, Air Miami,
Unrest, etc.)  I truly believe that these bands really really changed the
face of music, and they changed my life, as corny as it may sound.  So So
emotional!  O.k., I'll stop pissing off everyone after I just say one
more thing.  I only started getting into 4AD about 6 years ago.  I know a
lot of you probably were a fan from the very beginning.  I was just
wondering what the reactions were of those people when the label signed
Throwing Muses and Pixies.  For some reason I am just fascinated by that
time period (86-88), when things were changing.  I am sort of picturing
some elitists saying "That doesnt sound like 4AD, I hate it", much the
same way I can picture saying thast when Tarnation or Unrest/Air Miami
came aboard.  O.k., I am probably making no sense, but I would just like
to get people's thoughts on these things...

BEST 4AD VIDEO OF THE YEAR
Not a lot of votes in this category; most people said that they either don't
watch TV or that they don't know of programs that carry 4AD videos.  Has
ANYONE seen Kendra Smith's "Temporarily Lucy" video?  I'm told one
exists...no votes though.  The low number of votes here speak for themselves.
 Too bad more people didn't see these; some of them are very well done.  Or
so I've heard.

From: MiloV@AOL.COM if this promo CD has a front cover, I have gotten two copies now and neither has front cover artwork. Maybe there isn't any or maybe I'm just unlucky. Non-4AD Content: The GOOD TIMES VIRUS hoax (or whatever they're calling it now) just recently reinfected (ha,ha) many large companies, AT&T being one. This is so old and so lame, any net.guru with any sense would know enough to check with official sources before starting a panic. Feel free to severly reprimand anyone who sends this to you. Tell them to check with CERT (Computer Emergency response team (ftp://info.cert.org)) before they spread this super old rumor. If anyone needs more info feel free to E-Mail me and I'll send you the FAQ files on it. I already send the info to those involved here. Later, James

Agreed, M.W. Smith is wretched, and I know because my sister is a massive
christian rock fan (What are you gonna do? I've tried.) _BUT_ my first
exposure to Innocence Mission (Sundays-esque) was when they opened for
MWS about 7 years ago and they are now one of my absolute favorites.
They are much less in-your-face about their religion (if at all) than any
christian band I've ever heard.

So perhaps a young band could be forgiven for having an awkward
background, and, perhaps, a more rigid set of beliefs than some of us
subscribe to.

(trying not to invite a theology flame)

Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps,

i thought it's pretty cool that v23 will be doing Microsoft.  After all,
Microsoft pretty much kicks ass, despite what everyone says about them.
I am only hoping that v23 will not start to get stuck up and let all of the
money business get to their head, and not want to do 4ad anymore...
you never know...
