Okay, I've tried to avoid this topic for a while but it's really
starting to get to me...  Treasure--"acoustic-sounding"?  Granted,
some songs are, but what about Lorelei, Beatrix, and Pandora--and
that's just the first side!  In fact, there are really only two songs
with strong acoustic guitar elements, while I would say almost all of
BBK sounds acoustic.

I also have to voice that I personally love _Garlands_; I'm tired of
seeing it at the bottom of the list of CT faves.  I made a list for
thoth, if he has it maybe he'll return it to me and i'll post it.
What I do remember is that _Love's Easy Tears_ EP was number one on
my list; followed by _Pink Opaque_ as number two (basically I
consider PO to be the Pearly Dewdrops' Drops EP with the contemporary
"Millimillenary" thrown in for extra measure.)  Twinlights was last
and BBK next to last; although I like them all (except maybe
Twinlights).  Anyone else out there willing to voice some support for
Garlands out there?  I think it was number 6 on my list (out of 22).

Anyone still hoping for a bit of the "old" Lush sound might very well be
happy with Ladykillers Disc 2. The 3 bonus songs on this single are all
actually very nice (as opposed to the throwaways on both the Single Girl
discs), and one, Oranges and Plums, is downright brilliant, combining the
interesting chord changes and, well, lushness of early Lush with a cool
kind of ska/dub arrangement. Lush still has it. Just no more duets with
Jarvis Cocker, please! :)

i believe Ordeal is in 3/4 time, which makes it a waltz.  you can sing
the melody in 3/4, but the beats are quite syncopated and that's why it
seems like it's in some odd time.

that is a great song, great album...but i must say that CoM is more
blissful in my book...i'll take Deep Sleep over Blue Flower any day...

jarvis is from pulp.  he's the guy who mocked michael jackson on stage in
britain and has become a national hero as a result!  too cool...

apparently miki was a big pulp fan, following their tours around, and
eventually met the cocker himself.  she asked him to sing on Ciao! when
lush's own chris acland refused to.

bought the 'semtex' cd last thursday (because of internet reviews and
because i liked the cover) and it's quite wonderful, a dash of 'distance'
era flying saucer attack (understandable really), a spoonful of slowdive
(both early and the 'in mind' stuff) and a dollop of disjecta. only 6
tracks but a couple of them are over 10 minutes long so...

new stereolab cd is slightly disappointing after the electric live shows
but, hey, any stereolab is better than no stereolab. highlights are
'motoroller scalatron' and 'metronomic underground'.

heard lush vs jarvis last night, the track from 'lovelife' that guest
stars jarvis cocker. nancy sinatra and lee hazlewood anyone?

Piece about Vaughan Oliver in Friday's "Guardian" (I think it was
Friday), as in the recent "Independent" profile he says he would still
buy most of the label's output even if he wasn't so intimately involved
with the bands, and says he specifically went for a different look on
the new Lush sleeves to fit in with their "new" sound.  (I think
there's been a slow progression towards a cleaner sound, but if 4AD want
to market Lush as New Improved BritPop (TM) they'll probably sell more
records).

I bet they just recycled the press releases from 1995, 1994, 1993...
Island have been promising an album "before the end of the year" almost
since MBV signed to them.

Are they not signed to another company in the US?  Sire or Geffen?

 the reason that i personally subscribe to this list is precicely because
 of a real 'category' (or 'classification,' if you like) of music/art
 which _is_ 4AD.  A rigid category only inasmuch as 4AD (at one time??)
 held its talent to rigid standards of excellence. Didnt matter if it was
 noisy, dissonant, unnerving, assulting, as long as the art/craftsmanship
 was top notch.  Im using the past tense, unfortunately, because these
 standards seem to have been lowered over the past few years.  That's
 why we're dissatisfied with the new lush album.  Not because it
 somehow challenges our monolithic standards for how a 4AD record should
 'sound', but rather, our very articulate  standards for how a
 4AD record should be 'made'.  Quality just aint there.

 Same holds true for some of the 23 Envelope sleeves as of late, imho.

 We aint pining for a return to the 'good old days'. Those late eighties
 4ad records were quite ahead of their time. And thats what we want still.
 We want to be swept off our feet, taken captive.  Not bored by shit we
 could find on any other label, in any other genre.

 now i'll step down from the pulpit, and shut up.

     Cocteau Twins will be playing at Rough Trade's 20th Anniversary show
     on March 25th at the Subterranea. Capitol has pushed back the
     release date of Milk and Kisses until early May.

So, why the delay? The only good reason i could imagine is that the twins
are waiting for album release to more closely coincide with their north
american tour this summer.  and furthermore, (IN FANTASY)  that they are
waiting so long with the tour/album because they are waiting for Dead Can Dance 
o
release their new lp, in order for both of the two bands to tour the
states together. playing medium-sized outdoor venues, with HNIA as opening
band. and dcd/cox  flipping a coin to determine who goes on first....

instant poll: what does the list think about a fantasy tour such as the
one described above.  would it be good? bad? detract from the experience
of seeing one at a time?  or would it be the ultimate 4ad and friends fest.

Subject: Idaho


Idaho's latest album "Three Sheets to the Wind" was at first a
 disappointment, considering the incredible power of the first
 album, "Year After Year", still one of my favourite records.
 I was hoping for depression, anguish, sadness . . . i was
 disappointed with their second album too.  I still enjoyed
 listening, but the music didn't speak to me like the first
 album did.

However, after the first few listens, i tried to listen to it
 without thinking of the first album at all, and it worked.
 It's far superior to "This Way Out", though with a similar
 sound.  There's that four-string guitar and martin's vocals,
 and a few of those huge dropping bridges that were all over
 "Year After Year".  Instead of being pained he's merely . . .
 melancholy?  Instead of being sadder than Codeine, they're
 more on par with Red House Painters now.  Too bad for me, but
 mebbe they'll get more listeners this way.  It still kicks
 Ocean Beach's butt =).

kagin

The one thing I've always tried to do when listening to releases is
keep those ears open.  Having written reviews for zines and working in
radio I know the tendency to listen at one take and whammo,
insto-judge.  So while a music director for a couple of stations, I
kinda made a standing guideline/rule to listen to something 5 times.

Seemed to be a magic number and one could really make a quality
assessment especially if something didn't set your ears all a tingle at
first listen.  It was an attempt to get rid of the instaneous
gratification trip which can be a great ride but leaves you grasping
for more.  A lot of jazz can benefit from listening 4 or 5 times, the
music is complex and sometimes so simple it is complex.


Doesn't mean that even the most terrible piece of crap will sound
better after 5 listens or so, but just that at least the release is
given a chance to develop.

SO the bottom line, I'm glad you kept listening to the Idaho release.
Yikes, i ramble.

Subject: Monterey, CA


I am considering going to graduate school in Monterey next fall.  I was
just in San Fransisco on my spring break ans since I was in the area I took
a trip down to Monterey to tour the "campus".  I was wondering if anyone
lives near there (not more than an hour away) and could tell me more about
the area.  Like, am I going to have to resort to mail-order and the
occassional splurge of a $36RT ticket to get to San Fransisco to buy music,
or to see bands?  I really only saw the school and didn't have much time to
see what the city has to offer.  Despite the fact that it is on the ocean
and I could finally escape the midwest, I am afraid that it may be hard to
live there.  Any comments????

Probably not very thislisty, i just listened to the latest Love and Rockets
release (Sweet F.A.). It is not as bad as I thought. Nothing too exciting
though. very similar to "Love and Rockets" really. I miss the good old Tones
on Tail and early stuff. Too bad Daniel and the dudes mellowed out. Also got a
picture from the press release, what's up with Daniel looking like Bono, hair,
shades everything??????

Are the songs on the second disc only found on the second disc?  I'm
thinking about the Japanese release of Belly "King" that had the second
disc, but all the songs on it were just b-sides to "Now They'll Sleep."
Speaking of two disc sets, has anyone heard that two-disc Chapterhouse
album?  I've never heard anything by them, but I saw it for $6.00 used.
What do they sound like?

I'm pretty sure all of Robert Ashley's pre-1980's releases have been
destroyed

Subject: Re: milk and kisses pushed back further still


You know, I'm getting really pissed off with the release date continuing to be
pushed back.  Some of us aren't as "in-the-know" as others to have "obtained"
a copy of this 4 months ago.  :(


What is this shit?  I don't want a bootleg of it; I don't want a tape of it; I
don't want to pay $40 for a copy "ahead of time".  I want to be able to go to
the goddamn store and buy it for $13.

I'm tired of reading reviews of this CD.  I've been deleting them because I
want to hear it for myself first before I read someone else's opinion of what
the cocteaus do/do not sound like.

fuss fuss fuss bitch moan crab crab crab frika fraka brika braka where in the
hell is milk and kisses

I wish Fontana or Capital (or whoever the hell is distributing it) would get
their collective head out of their ass and release it already!

Subject: Mojave 3, Lush LIVE


Gentlefolk,

This is a call/challenge to any fans of Mojave 3/Slowdive and Lush. Does anyone
know the complete live set up of my fave bands? I'm talking amps, guitar
pedals - the hole kit n' keeboodle. I would really like to know the specifics
on amp and guitars makes, what pedals or keyboards they use, and extra stuff
they carry around with them on tour.

This would make my life just a bit more complete,

                        Thankyou!!
Mark.

i too, have not received my "TRR" ltd.ed. as of yet.  and they too, charged
my visa account in late january.  they mailed me the receipt along with a
note that said ".. it will be shipped in march".  what they probably meant
was that they would be shipped march 31st, and we (overseas) would get them
about 10 days afterward in april.  or, as i joked to a friend that we would
all get them on april 1st to lets us know what fools we've been to pay so
much for something and then have to wait so long for it.  if you ask me, as
patient as we've been, 4AD should send us a free CD or something.

Subject: ESP Continent


I got my ESP Continent disc from France last week. My case too was
smashed to hell. But the music is fine. There has been a lot of Pale
Saints talk on the list lately and I highly recommend this to anyone that
enjoys Ian Masters voice. The music does not  sound like th PS however -
guitar and piano mixed with other misc sounds. There was one thing that I
found kind of annoying and that was the static sound that is supposed to
sound like a scratched disc or something. Wasn't this already done on the
Liquorice album? I swear it is the same sound. It is just down right
annoying. I guess it is supposed to be clever because it is so damn
"ironic" to find this in music that was flowing together so well. Anyway,
I realize that I am overreacting and should just ignore it. Anyway..
