 Alex queried about The The.  I recently read a post somewhere
 quoting Matt Johnson, who said that the 'new' the the album
 that was slated for release in 1996 and tenatively entitled
 'gun sluts' has been scrapped. Matt sounded disillusioned, and
 dissatisfied. He _was_ residing in NYC recording 'gunsluts', but
 may be back in england now searching for a new direction.

 i also liked 'hanky panky' rather much, although 'dusk' seemed
 a bit poppy and simple to me (that tour, though, WOW!).

 in a vein of unlistiness,

 I sas L&R in detroit friday, and booooy, did they ever rock!
 Their intro was a bit from 'body and soul', and when they
 appeared onstage they immediately ripped into 'ball of confusion.'

 While they did play from the new LP quite a bit, they also included
 old favories:

  *so alive
  *the light
  *mirror people
  *holiday on the moon
  *that 'wooh-wooh' train song from express
  *no new tale to tell

along with
  *sweet lover hangover
  *sweet FA
  *natascha
  *spiked
  *fever

and the house-rocker, the ultimate of ultimates was an extended version
of 'yin and yang the flowerpot man', which during the middle-eight morphed
seamlessly into 'bella lugosi's dead' for about six bars, then reverted back
into 'yin and yang'.  Eargasmic! Were i to use 'reviewspeak' (a language
found only in magazines), i would call it a
'proclaimation of the rebirth of cooler-than-thou, wailing electric guitar
rock with a twist of nineties cyberpunk'.  Luckily, i dont talk like that.

Go see them if you can!

Since the group has been recently talked about...

Does anyone know any info about Love and Rockets tour dates
(especially in the Philly/D.C area)?

PS  Saw them on 120 Minutes last night...I don't think I would have
ever recognized them if it weren't for the never-changing David J.
(Daniel Ash always did look odd but he has certainly topped himself
this time - someone mentioned how he has the greasy Bono look and
that's what I thought to myself too).  It's also too bad about their
recent fire - I heard that they lost the guitars that they played in
Bauhaus.

They did in the UK, but I think they'd sold out by the end of the tour.

Could have got some new ones though.

The designs?  Simple stuff, various sizes & colours with the new logo on
the back, and either "Single Girl"  "Ladykiller" or "Lovelife" on the front
in a simple sans serif font.

I think the song you are inquiring about is "Beautiful" by Ivy (the New

their excellent debut Lp titled "Realistic" on Seed Records.

Keep in mind, folks, that most of the P5 stuff is more techno-pop than
'jazzy retro pop'.

As a somewhat more refined question for the
Stereolab fans, what albums would you recommend for
someone (me) who prefers their lighter moments
(Pack Yr Romantic Mind, Ping Pong etc.)? I have
Transient, Peng and Mars Audiac Quintet. What bugs me
the most about Stereolab is their tendency to go into
long repetitive jams. Sometimes this is OK, but they
soon get into a rut.

        Could this be the Ivy VW commercial?  I don't recall which song
it is, but it definitely sounded like Ivy.  Just a guess...

Subject: Fore!

Yesterday while revelling in the midst of a huge breakfast,
a twee little Easter egg hunt hosted by Jenny Elysium, and
the latest Bedazzled compilation playing the wonderful
Blueshift Signal in the background, I came to the realization
that life's too short so I want to do the next hypothetical
4AD covers compilation, provisionally entitled Foretene, NOW. If I wait
until our other CDs to start making us money, it may never happen.

Some back story. Stop me if you think that you've heard this
one before. The first compilation Thurtene is our first and
best selling CD, and we didn't even know that we were going to be
releasing it, much less forming a label, until several months
into the project. It began as a neat little idea in October of 1992
for people on 4ad-L to pay tribute to 4AD by creating an
album of cover versions. Bands with some connection to 4AD-L
submitted their own takes on 13 songs, with anything from
faithful renditions to totally warped demolitions. While
results varied wildly and project initiator Steve Schuldt
has gone on record as saying that much of it was crap, generally
Thurtene has been looked upon favorably, even getting a lukewarm
review from Alternative Press, and being found in stores from
Portugal to South Africa (I really don't have a clue how that
happened, believe me.)

So what happens next? Foretene! 14 songs by 14 different
bands to celebrate 4AD's 17th year. Does the math make
sense? Of course not, but 17 songs might be pushing it,
and 17 doesn't naturally follow 13, does it? Well it does
if you go by prime numbers, but anyway... I posted a message like
this quite a while ago to stir up interest, and this is my purpose
once again. There are no release details yet, but I do have
a wish list of bands I'd like to include. I'm sure you know who
you are, and I'll be contacting all of you separately. As opposed to
Thurtene where every single submission was used (save one) and where
there were two vague repetitions of bands, with Foretene I hope
to get as many submissions as possible to generate a spirit of
friendly competition. So if you're in a band, and would like
to be involved with Foretene, start thinking of a number of
songs you'd like to cover, and contact me directly. Give me
some background on your band, unless I'm already obviously
familiar with you and list some of your ideas, however vague,
so I know where you're coming from. The ground
rules are simple: pick any song from 4AD, any at all, and filter it
through your own band's style and creativity. Don't change any
existing lyrics, but feel free to experiment otherwise. But contact
me first to start things off and I'll set up a mailing list to
keep you informed as things happen.

My main goal is that Foretene be miles beyond Thurtene,
and with a number of bands either committed to or with assured interest
in doing it, this seems within reach.
