I had a chance, once again, to listen to an old In The Nursey song,
"Seraphic". I was wondering if any fan could recommend the good albums to
buy. I really didn't like their Wax Trax attempt.

Subject: non4ad- record label help wanted


hello,

i've posted to the list before about my band, closer, who have been
dabbling with some monstrous music industry people...

now this label (which is a major) is going to offer us a demo deal.  i'd
appreciate anyone's input on demo deals, because we never knew anything
about them til the A&R guy told us that it was a possibility.  apparently
the label is going to front the costs for us to record a 4-song demo, at
the studio of our choice.  they're not going to ask us for any money.
all they want is first refusal...

then if we do refuse any future offers from them, we can shop our demo
around to other labels, without having to pay the original label for
anything.  no binds.

it's all so fishy, we think.  but people have told me that since the
label has money, it's pretty typical for them to be throwing it around
looking for some new bands.

can anyone help?


lorelei in the music biz

ps  some really nice people responded to my last message- thank you all!
    i've lost some addresses, so if holly, bobb, and kryshna could
    re-e-mail them to me, i'd be glad to send out the demo finally.

pps anyone else who wants a demo can e-mail me for info.....

 we just finished a rather long discussion of this cd on the cocteau
list,...it's simply a bootleg of some of the tracks found in the box
set - there really isn't anything "forgotten" about it. if anyone wants
these songs, do yourself a favor and just buy the box set. it's well worth it.

I don't know how things work these days, but "fronting the costs" used
 to mean about the same thing as an "advance", which was simply a loan.
 If so, then the amount would be deducted from your share of any profit
 you were to make, or you'd simply be owing a lot of money.  It may just
 depend on who's saying it.  I don't think majors treat bands as poorly
 as is often reported, but it's certainly wise to stay suspicious and
 keep your guard up.  Major labels don't make their money by throwing
 their money around for young bands to experiment with.

Then again, maybe i've read too many issues of maximum rock 'n roll.

More like Peng! because it's from more or less the same period but it's
mostly really upbeat stuff, whereas the tracks on Peng tend to stretch out.

i have two friends in seperate bands that had/will do the same thing.  one
band was passed on by the label that provided the money.  in fact they had
already paid for the artwork, which the label is letting them have also...
no charge.  the other band is recording their demo right now for a major
under the same circumstances.  i don't think you have anything to worry
about.  just think how much money has been floated to my bloody valentine.

Akropolis Arts Magazine's next issue has arrived.

Check out the arts magazine that has won numerous awards, including
the Microsoft Network Pick of the Week list, and the GNN Select list.
We believe that you are interested in more than just pretty graphics!
(but we try to give you those too!)

Our content includes discussion of fine art, theatre, and music,
as well as film and music reviews.  We also continue to feature
our online art gallery, and next month will launch our gallery
of literature as well!

New this month:

L J Winson digs up the dirt on 'Interactive Fiction' on the web,
Michael Butler (original Producer - Hair) discusses producing theatre,
And more!


Thanks to the good folks at IQuest Internet, we have a new home!

Akropolis

If you are reading this list, you probably have something interesting
to say -- we'd like to hear it!  (and tell other people too!)
We are currently looking for musical reviews (not to mention anything
else that might be considered artsy!)  If interested, shoot us
some email at:
gothicpoet@iquest.net

Thanks!

        I don't see why this would be a fault.  The power of music is such
a mystery.  No hornet's nest here, I just feel that sometimes artists just
aren't interested in self-analysis - especially after the fact.
        What's there to talk about.  One makes some noise.  Some people like
it, some don't.  One touches some people, others one doesn't.  One makes a
living at it or one doesn't.

        Sure you have people like Brian Eno or Florian Schneider who are
quite good at talking and writing about what they do, but you can't fault
artists that aren't as introspective.

People have started asking a lot of Frequently Asked Questions again

announce the existence of the FAQ again:


Incidentally, to get a daily digest you first subscribe to the list and
then send the command "set 4AD-L mail digest" in the body of a message to
listserv@american.edu.

Recent additions to the FAQ include
 - Explication of the whole ESP Summer thing including ordering info
 - The Cocteau Twins Fruitopia commercial
 - A couple of links to new web pages that were recently announced to the
list

As always please send suggestions or corrections my way.

I would agree with this. Many artists feel their music should speak for
itself and don't feel the urge to elaborate further. Other artists like
Lisa Germano take up half a concert set explaining each song in
painstaking detail. It all has to do with what gives the artist personal
satisfaction, and neither type of artists is more or less worthy than the
other.

Most defintely!

When they played last night here in Chicago, they did something
extra-special and rolled out a _very_ old song...by another band..
that's right...they decided to play a Bauhaus song for the first time
as LnR's...Woohoo! A nice version of Slice of Life...wow!

Speaking of...

I had the fine opportunity to see them perform last night at the Metro here
in grand ole Chicago, IL....they opened the set with the Hot Trip to Heaven
song playing in the background. When the band took the stage, Mr. ash came
out looking very similar to a mr. bono (ala U2)..quite funny.

They opened with a very rocked up version of Ball Of Confusion..wow!
Other highlights were a housy version of No New Tale To Tell, a stretched
out Clean off the new album, a cover of an old Rock classic (rock on I think)...
which was the highlight in terms of odd musical sounds up to that point.

The true highlight was when David said "here is something from  _another_ band
that _this_ band has NEVER covered anything by"...and they proceeded to play
Slice of Life (from Bauhaus for those of you that do not
know)...wow...absolutely
brilliant! Overall, the show was very good, the band seemed to really be
enjoying
themselves on stage for a change and the crowd was good!

See them!
