DAY FIFTEEN: BIRMINGHAM THE FOUNDRY

After three days back in that alien environment called work, arriving at a
Lush gig again was like coming home...  By all reports, Stoke and
Bristol went well, it was as if as the tour wended its way back down
south, things began to pick up again.  This was the first gig at which I'd
listened to the new support band (Inertia? Not sure) and was quite
impressed.  A bit REM/Nirvana-ish, but done extremely well.

The venue (a nightclubby type place again) was packed to the brim,
stuffed to the gills.  By the time Lush arrived on stage, the only way I
could see ANYTHING was by going behind the bar.  The set was pretty
much as it had been back in Manchester (despite a number of people
calling for "Ciao!", Lovelife now having been released in the UK, and
"Ciao!" receiving a lot of radio airplay thanks to Jarvis's current
notoriety), but this time the enthusiasm of the audience was unabated,
which naturally fed back to the band, who gave a great show.

Yeah, I know a lot of these reviews are beginning to sound the same,
but  when you go to so many gigs on the trot everything starts becoming
a bit of a blur...  It's only posting these messages that keeps my
memory in check!

A day off on Thursday day for both the band and myself, before moving
on up to Leicester for the next thrilling installment of "Lovelife: The
Tour"

Stay tuned...

Subject: StP tour Prov RI April 30th


The Shaving the Pavement Tour is coming to Providence Rhode Island on April
30th.  Tickets are $8 adv.  Sale of tickets start March 22.  The location is at
Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel on 239 Westminster St.  This is a Great venue.  No more
than 40 ft from the stage and there is a balcony too.  Sometimes I feel so
lucky to live in Prov where the venues are intimate enough to connect with the
bands while Prov is big enough of a city to attract names like the StheP tour,
Belly, Throwing Muses, Sonic Youth (playing at same location on the 27th of
April), and other great bands.  Hope to see you 4ad-ers at the show.

Hey! I thought Roxanne was going back to school full time -- and now here
she is, moonlighting with some other band. Can someone (one of our
omniscient UK correspondents?) comment on Ligament and whether they're at
all Faith-Healers-esque?

Like many others, after encountering the TMC Original Versions I pursued
many of the artists/albums TMC covered.  Among others, I found Mary
Margaret O'Hara's "Miss America" and fell in love with it.  One of my
fave-rave albums.  But i can't find anything else by her, nor do I know if
anything else exists.  She did turn up in the thank-you's for KH's "Hips
and Makers."  Any info would be appreciated.  And yes the original
versions, for the most part, are better than TMC's.

Hmmm.  Wacky? I'm not sure about that...  :)

I think the most accurate was the kidnapped woman, since that's exactly

        You betcha.  I'm actually an Oregon transplant, just here for
college...but my grandparents were born and raised here before heading West.
There seem to be quite a few Minnesotans on 4AD-L...

Somewhat thislisty:  Check out the official Low homepage at:

        http://carleton.edu/~declerca/low.html

Low are fellow Minnesotans...but they're currently on a whirlwind tour of the
U.S...the page is pretty rough looking right now, but it's got all the dates.
I'll be updating and improving it pretty regularly.  Let me know what you

              Mar 23, 96 01:30:15 pm

To anyone in the midwest:

     Here in Lincoln, Nebraska we have a pretty danged godlike store
which sells CD's, records, tapes, posters, and no, it's not a chain.
It goes by the name of Recycled Sounds and currently the owner has a
box full of vinyl 4AD stuff. I saw:

     Dead can dance: Aion
        Within the Realm of a Dying Sun
     Lonely is an eyesore
     Cocteau Twins:
        Victorialand
        Echoes in a Shallow Bay
        Aikea-Guinea (single)
        Tiny Dinamine
        Pink Opaque
        Treasure
        Heaven or Las Vegas
        Garlands

     I also saw The Moon and the Melodies, but hey, I bought it.
Remember, this is all vinyl, and if you're ever passing through
Lincoln, Recycled Sounds is well worth the trip.  Also (not as 4AD-y,
but an interesting little shop) there's Zero Street. Both have copies
of this year's 4AD Calendar.
