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...

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.

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?

From: cz (cz@U.WASHINGTON.EDU)
Subject: Bel Canto Review


           Each of Bel Canto's albums is quite different from the rest but *Magi
 Box*
is even MORE different from their previous efforts and finds them dabbling in
different styles within the same album.  After hearing many reports that the
advanced single "Rumour" was <> "normal," i feared that they had taken a
plunge into the wide world of marketing and money.  While that may have played
some role in the sound of the new album i actually quite like it.  They manage
to retain their command of atmosphere and the beauty of Anneli's voice that
DEFINE Bel Canto.  Those of you who haven't heard Bel Canto already had better
go out and do so immediately because they are ultimately "thislisty."  (I
recommend starting with Shimmering Warm and Bright for it's beauty and
accessibility).
           I welcomed some of the new musical elements on this album but not all
  Bel
Canto's recent collaborative work with middle eastern musicians ("Music Channel"
-- anyone heard this?) exerted a positive influenced on the sound of this album.
The addition of tabla (Indian drums) works quite well on several songs.  "In
Zenith" takes this sound to it's extreme and is one of my favorite songs here
but some of the music towards the end of the song degenerates into cheesy
pseudo-middle eastern music for just a moment before a wonderful violinist comes
in to save the song and carry it to a new level.
           While i enjoyed the middle eastern influence i really don't approve o
 some
of the other directions they're taking.  Be forewarned "Free Lunch in the
Jungle" IS DISCO!  The former sense of darkness in BC is gone (that's a bad
thing) and even some of the peppy uniqueness is hiding underneath a shroud of
normalcy for some of the songs.  Perhaps since quirky female voices have broken
the mainstream Anneli's voice loses some of its groundbreaking impressiveness
but i think they might be making a true attempt at being received in a broader
market (i.e., moving from unique to "alternative").
        The album flows well (except for the disco song) between introspective a
d
upbeat.  Although some old fans may be sorely disappointed i think the album is
quite enjoyable if approached without any expectations or hidden agendas.

I picked up the Honeytongue CD called Nude Nudes over the weekend and I
LOVE IT!  This is really good stuff.

Honeytongue, for those that don't know, is Josephine Wigg's band.
Josephine is (was?) bass player for Breeders.  Jon Mattuck, who played
drums on Pod, also plays drums on this Honeytongue Cd.  Great drum sounds!!

What I want to know is:  Are there more releases than Nude Nudes?  Nude
Nudes is only about 30min long---TOO SHORT!  If someone could provide a
discography or point me to one, I would appreciate it.

Also, I am searching for shows by a band called POOKA.  Anyone that caught
Kristin Hersh's solo tour in 1994 might remember them, they were the
opening act on most dates.  2 girls playing acoustic guitars, but
definitely not anything like Indigo Girls :).  But I wouldn't call them
this-listie either....well, maybe.  Anyway, if you have shows of Pooka, or

Stereolab will always be wonderful live no matter what, but what's your
opinion of the new material? I'm a lot less fond of MAQ and SABPM than I
am of their other releases, and I gather the new stuff is supposed to be
in the same vein...

Maybe Strange Fruit will release a Peel Sessions disc now that there are
three of them, two previously unreleased. [In case anyone's wondering
where the 1st session is, it's on the "Too Pure Peel Sessions" album, an
excellent comp that also includes rockin' early stuff by Th Faith Healers
and P J Harvey.]

I forgot to mention - I got mine about a week ago.  It only took about...
2 weeks from the time I sent the M.O. to the time the disc arrived.
Perfect timing, in fact - keep me company after a bunch of my friends
moved back to Japan... (oh, boo hoo!) but you don't need to hear about
that.  By all means, snag it if you can.  The International Money Order
('foreign draft [somethingorother]'?) I sent cost me an extra $10 in
fees, so it might be best to go with cash after all, if you can hide
it...  I hope to snag the Perd. Plastics version too...

At any rate, I was relieved to see the disc.  Wasn't too sure about how
legit it all was, and sending $$ to a foreign country and what not...
Not too sure about the imagery in the booklet, either.  Picture of War-n,
picture of Eeee-n, a gun... ?

I don't know why it would've taken a month...

Tom, did your disc arrive OK?  One corner of the jewel case on mine was
smashed... :-(  The mailer was too big for the disc, I think.

Now here's the big question - does anyone have current info on all the
available Time Stereo releases?  I made an order about 2 months ago or
so, and I know they had a number of new things in the works... I'm about
ready to order some more, and I want to take care of as much as possible
at once if I can.

I'm sure in the eyes of The Man, it's prolly not all that legit, as I think
99.9% of all CD's crossing the pond as small packets are sent as "gifts"
regardless of whether it truly is a gift or a purchased item or otherwise.
But then, I think The Man has bigger fish to fry.

It might make a bit more sense (or perhaps less, take your pick) once you've
seen the whole picture, which may be found at:


And everything is still under construction (and I've had next to no time to
work on it lately, so pls excuse the dust...).

To the best of my knowledge, the only recorded output from Jo and Jon are
the 'Nude Nudes' album and a slightly different version of "Let's Sail Away"
which was on one of those Volume compilations.

Jon Mattacks played drums on the last Perfect Disaster LP, Spacemen 3's
'Recurring,' and a handful of Spiritualized records.  Britt Walford of Slint
fame is the drummer on 'Pod'.  Britt also played on part of the 'Safari' EP,
and I think Jon also played drums on that disc as well.

Sorry to be so dense, but is "Middle Channel" a cut from the new disc or
the name that Bel Canto and the middle eastern musicians recorded under and,
if so, is that disc currently available?  Thanks for the review of "Magic Box".
While I would hate for BC to lose their wonderful sound, I'm looking forward
to new work by them.  Gray days in Tuscaloosa are made much more enjoyable by

I had a dream once that me and a bunch of people I didn't know got a chance

Subject: New music & schtuff


Okay.  I bought quite a few albums and music-related items over the weekend,
even by my standards.  I'm poor but happy.  So here's a list with some brief
reviews of things, stuff, more things & stuff:

All Virgos Are Mad video: Wowee, zowee.  I never thought I'd find this just
sitting on a shelf at Streetlight records.  In any case, it has its moments,
but it lacks the cohesion of the LIAE video.  The HNIA video was
_wonderful_, and the Lisa Germano and Dead Can Dance ones were very good, as
well.  Some struck me as a bit to MTV-ish for a limited edition 4AD video,
though.

Cocteau Boot record thingee: Okay, so I can't remember the title off the top
of my head.  Basically it was one of the extra songs on the import version
of Garlands, plus a demo version of "orange-appled" that was originally
going to be on Victorialand.  Nothing really new here, but the vinyl looked
really groovy.

Limited Ed. Wolfgang Press "Queer": Well, I already had the US version, but
I wanted the 12" remixes.  One side is a mix of "Momma Told Me Not To Come"
and the other is a mix of "Sucker" (not the one on the U.S. version), both
mixed by Martyn Young of Colourbox.  I liked them both, but then again I'm a
TWP remix freak, so take my opinion with a grain of salt.  They're both
fairly long, as long as some of the mixes on the "Momma Told Me Not To Come"
single.

Air Miami: The single for "Airplane Rider."  I don't know when this was
released, but it's only on TeenBeat, not 4AD.  I like it a lot.  Then again,
I'm one of the few people who likes Air Miami better than Unrest.  It's in
the same style as the songs on "Me, Me, Me," and it's worth it to get if you
liked the album.

I also saw to promo only Wolfgang Press remix albums, but lacked the cash to
get them.  Are these possibly the same tracks as I've heard about being on
this mythical TWP remix album planned for the future? Anyone?  They had the
B-sides from the "Going South" single, as well as the Adrian Sherwood mix of
"Christianity", which is one of my favorites (where's this originally from?
I have it on the Doom Generation soundtrack), possibly the Wicked Man remix
(can't remember for sure), and a few more.  They also had the Sabres Mix 1
of "Going South" and a mix of "Executioner", neither of which I'd seen
before.  Where are these from?

Also got some old Cocteaus albums, lots o' Cure singles & albums, and most
of OMD's pre-1984 recordings (which are all excellent, btw).  Oh, and if
anyone is interested, Streetlight Records in San Francisco has a copy of
Lilliput for $120.

Jake

And OMD's Dazzleships is still one of the strangest, coolest albums ever.

I'm sorry if i referred to "Middle Channel" because i meant "Music Channel."  I
believe that that is the name for the  collaborative work with middle eastern
musicians but i haven't been able to find it.  Anyone from Europe seen/heard

I really like "Architecture and Morality" as well.  It was recently (in the
last year or so) reissued in the U.S.

Alright--now that Goth dreams have been brought up...

        It was a searing Tucson afternoon and I wasn't able to keep awake any
longer in the heat.  So I decided to put "First, Last, and Always" by the
Sisters of Mercy on and cool things down.
        Before I knew I was asleep, I heard the beginning of another album
"Floodland" begin synchronizing and fading into the first song of "F,L&A."
Soon enough I was on a some crane filming Sisters live in some temperate--dare
I say cool--climate.  I was swooping in for some really artsy shots of
Eldritch during "Lucretia" and my sister was on the stage instead, asking if
I wanted to get a Big Gulp!
        I awoke, hearing the end of First, Last and Always, to my sister,
tapping her foot.
