So the limited edition has been reissued in France. Doesn't that destroy the
whole "limited editioness" of the CD? I mean, it's would be like suddenly
reissuing the LIAE deluxe limited edition...doesn't that bother anyone?

I recently stumbled upon a review of Caroline Lavelle's debut "Spirit" (in the
LA Weekly if you must know) and happened to hear a track from that album the
next day. I must say, this might be of interest. I thought it was a lovely
piece of work. For those of you who don't know who Caroline is, she's a famed
Cellist who's played (the cello of course) for a wide variety of cool artists
(even though those names escape me right now).
So anyway, after an entire paragraph of rambling, let me get to the point of
my post, anyone heard this album? Any reviews? Comments?

hello there listies:
i am in this weird situation and i want to know what is up, because i am new
to this whole internet thing. anyway, i was supposed to trade some cds over
the mail with, what i thought, was a nice person. anyway, that person said
for us both to send on a wednesday so we can recieve our stuff by friday,
right. well, as you may already know, i am a bit shakey about sending stuff
through the mail [refer to ear/rational reliability] so i agreed to it. the
only thing was that i did not send on wednesday, i waited for the goods to
get here first... then i sent on monday. well, it is now friday and this
person is claiming that they never got their stuff. and get this.... this
person is threatining me by saying the following:

I want to know, what can i do?? I mean, I am a CD short from my collection
and this person comes up with this B.S. about the CD. I know it was pretty
inadequate of me to not send at the same time but, regardless, I DID send....
Please give me some advice concerning this matter. I do not want to get a
bad rep or even getting ripped off by mean people on the 'net.

a friend has recently given me a tape by Nico titled 'the marble index'.
i can't stop listening to it, it's an ultimate beauty.
i can remember seeing Nico in Fellini's Dolce Vita and i went hunting in
cd stores at once but i found only her 'The last concert' CD.
perhaps someone here knows about a CD release of 'The Marble Index'? They
do't have any information about it in Poland, even in the shops where they
keep 'garlands' on vitrine display.

Thanks for sticking up for me and my sad situation on the list. That
little brat -- i had thought he was polishing up his character when he
posted that ear/rational reliability stuff. The irony of it mounted each
day, but I said nothing.
What's funny is that my threats to him were completely hollow...I never
planned to actually defame him in public places. I just don't have it in
me to get into that kind of mess over a stupid cd. But I thought the
threat of it might get him to send it to me. Now it looks like he's doing
my work for me -- astute listies will know not to get mixed up in any
deals with him.
Well I've decided I can't stop the world because one of its residents
sucks, so I would still like to trade with you. There was a post about
the Xymox A Day/Stranger 12" the other day on this list, did you see it?
Someone was saying they had been looking for it for years. I've never
really liked it much myself, so I will be glad to trade it and the
Shelleyan Orphan for the Mirror Pool. Isn't that what we had agreed upon?
You do know that my copy of Century Flower is a promo copy? Just making
sure that is okay.
Let me know if you are still interested. If so I suggest we try the same
technique that failed so miserably with the erik situation. It's a good
technique -- i knew he was jerking me around 2 days after I mailed.

Whee! I've actually bought some interesting albums.
Tarnation - Gentle Creatures
Never before have so many people been so right. 1) You've got these
nice country tunes sung by Paula. 2) You have these vile "jokey"
country tunes from hell sung by some guy that should be shot. Several
times. And then strangled. The first time I listened to this album, I
kinda smiled at those... songs. Now I just wish I had a remote for my
cd player. Those songs are *bad*. Badbadbad. *Bad*!
Paulas songs are good, though. I don't know whether they are great or
not, but her songs are, like, Country Songs That Don't Suck And Don't
Souns Like Badalamenti Either. Which is definitely a plus. Me like.
Does she have a solo album out soon?
Bel Canto - Magic Box
I saw "Rumour" on the tv some time back, and it sounded so...
Smooth. Not like the Bel Canto we all know and love. I now have the
album, and indeed -- it's a very *produced* album. It's not boring,
though. There are exciting, new, hep & cool sounds aplenty.
Now -- the songs. Ahh! Some of the songs are pure heaven. It's
like... I want to jump out of my chair and explode in a burst of
millions of stars. Or something. Neat!
I think all the previous albums had a definite Belgian/Norwegian feel
to them. This one definitely does not have that. Buy it anyway.
Lush - Ladykiller 1 & 2
Now, I've listened to these two thingies several times, and I still
can't recall anything about them. The title track is
Elastica-by-numbers, even though it's not as bad as Single Girl. I
think. The rest of the tracks (six-count-em-six) just sort are there.
I'm sure they're nice and everything. I probably should just listen
to them some more.
"Plums and Oranges" seems like a nice track. It's the only songs
written by Emma. All the rest are by Miki, more or less. A clue!
Miki bad Emma good? Is that it?
Why have Lush released 14 tracks b-side tracks?
Coil - Black Light District
"Cool!" I thought. "Coil have finally released a followup to Love's
Secret Domain." My sweaty hands grabbed the album, and I slunk out of
the store (after paying). Alas! Alack! How my hopes were crushed!
This is yet one more release in their groundbreaking "let's tap
a keyboard key once every few minutes in our sleep" series. Not that
they're bad at tapping keyboard keys in their sleep, but it doesn't
exactly set the world on fire. It's ok.
Autechre - Anvil Vapre
Crunch! Crunch! Crunch! Tikka-tikka-tikka-tikka-crunch!
And that's just the first track!
Actually, I liked this EP just fine. I don't think anything Autechre
have ever released is as good as their first album, though.
And that's it. What did *you* buy yesterday, then?
"Yes. The journey through the human heart
would have to wait until some other time."

"We are punished for our refusals. Every impulse that we strive to
strangle broods in the mind, and poisons us. The body sins once, and has
done with its sin, for action is a mode of purification. Nothing remains
then but the recollection of a pleasure, or the luxury of a regret. The
only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Resist it, and your
soul grows sick with longing for the things it has forbidden to itself,
with desire for what its monstrous laws have made monstrous and unlawful."

Agreed. The others had that out-of-the-rarefied-cold-air sort of feel to them
(... even *shimmering warm and bright* had that
snuggle-up-to-the-fireplace-to-escape-the-cold sort of feel) but this one...
well buy it and figure it out for yourself.

Before I start I would just like to say that you liked Lush's
"Gala" then you should get Pale Saints "in ribbons", awesome CD! I just
got it at music trader. God bless them!
here's some questions to ponder.......
What if Merial never left lush? (pretend her boyfriend at the time
died, so they have no reason to boot her out)
Do you think they would be better or worse?
Do you think they would have even gotten signed?
Would the have risen to promenence (fame)?
Would they have done that "airy fariey thing" on Spooky?
Or just stayed punky, like they're doing now?
I don't think that they would sound too diffrent because Miki and
Merial almost exactly sound exactly alike. But I don't think they would
have ever made Spooky.
One more question, when did they throw Barham out?

If you dig on Nico, check out the movie Nico Icon. I believe it is still
playing around. It came out about 2 months ago. it is not a flattering
look at her at all. It is very real and at times kind of funny. They have
some real good interviews and some live Velvet Underground footage. The
thing is that the sound during the VU stuff is the original record and
not them playing live. that was kind of disappointing. There is this one
part where the narrator is talking with Nico's mom and they put "I'll be
Your Mirror" on the record player and Nico's mom sings along. Awkward

I'm afraid the The _Magic!_ version of AVAM CD is out of print.
AVAM was not offered with the mag, but precisely with a new subscription
to one year issues of Magic!
Magic! has an issue each 2 months and a week (no joke, it should be each 2
months, but there are always in late), and in each issue you can
find the trditionnal subscription coupon, and you receive a CD if you
subscribe. The CD is always different, don't know exactly when the AVAM was
offered, but it's quite a long time ago...
> E.S.P. "Continent" At the time, they noted
>that only 1000 CDs were pressed.
According to Julien, from _Karina Square_, quite all the 1000 first pressing
has been sold quickly, so they ask for a new pressing... don't ask me
exactly how many, I haven't a clue.
