He didn't actually 'dis' Emma tho'.

As for his HO of Miki - it just seemed to me that she's the sort of woman
who doesn't take any shit from anyone.  All power to her.

And I've pissed in alleyways before now...  Surely the fact that I'm male
and she's female should make NO difference?

Wow, I can't believe you don't have any CT records prior to HOLV. I've seen
you're name on this list for a while, haven't you wondered what everybody
has been gushing about all this time? Since you've asked, BBK is pretty darn
swell, someone around these parts even named themselves after it (for
whatever that's worth). Garlands isn't my favorite, but if I didn't have it
and I could see the future to know what it sounded like I would definitely
buy it for $5.

'S funny, I thought that too when I first heard it. I can't think what
Cocteaux songs have that sound, but I'm pretty sure they didn't invent that
effect themselves (is it a phaser or something?). I doubt Alanis even knows
the Cocteaux - after all, she hasn't even heard a single note of Sonic
Youth, apparently. Probably something her producer came up with. BTW, this
is not a defence of Alanis either.

I've never heard anything remotely thislisty at Starbucks - usually they
play jazz at the one I go to, but last time I was there it was Crowded
House. Nor is Second Cup terribly thislisty either - it's usually Abba or
the Gipsy Kings there...

******************************************************************

please... everyone buy the rachel's music for egon schiele. this is a
must have disc. it is very beautiful, minimal, fully orchestrated,
classical, nyman meets preisner, and oh so good.
it has to be one of the best discs to be released in the last ten years.
the packaging is just amazing. it includes pictures from the underrated
german artist, egon schielle, and the disc also includes pictures from
the live presentation the music is from. the rachel's are from chicago.
the other rachel's recordings are great as well. every year i buy all my
good friends the same disc for x mas. it's the disc of the year
compliments of me. in the past cd's have included they might be giants,
original soundtrack to k.kieslowski's blue, his name is alive, sloan,
cardinal and this year unless someone else releases yet another classic
everyone is getting the rachel's. however, what might happen is that i will
talk all my friends into getting it i might have to give them something else.
maybe that new this mortal coil that is coming out. ha, i got you all
looking. i'm sorry, i shouldn't joke about that. plus ivo would probably
catch the 4ad fever and change his style like everyone else (lush,
slowdive three, eight minute guitar solo painters, etc.).
anyway, back to the rachel's.... give it a listen and respond !

record of the year!!!!!!

also has anyone mentioned yet another amazing record by SPAIN. ooooh, it is
kick-motherfucking-ass. it is so smooth and it blends genres to make a
velvety soft plush feeling. this is another disc that melts in your mouth
but not in your hand. think of nick drake meets mark eitzel meets some
whiskey in a smokey jazz bar in san francisco. yup, it's that good.


AND

does anyone have a clue if the two singers on
this mortal coil's blood album are in bands or do they
sing on anything else? i really like their voices. i'm not
talking about t.donnelly or k.deal either.

anyway...there is my six cents worth,

star vein

and i have a new web-zine coming soon...

Subject: new Swirlies, new Tel Basta


Whoever recommended the new Swirlies album, good call! It is
indeed quite wonderful and I'm close to giddy after hearing it
just once. Even with half the band replaced, they still sound as
delightfully noisy and offbeat as they did on the landmark
Blonder Tongue Audio Baton. And it struck me that describing them
as a combination of Unrest and My Bloody Valentine would get people
thinking in the right direction. For the record here is the full
title of the new album: "They spent their wild and youthful days
in the glittering world of the salons". It's on TAANG! records.
The soup is ON!

A complete surprise also came in the form of a new Tel Basta album.
They had a bit of a following on this list years ago. Starting off with a
track on one of the C'est La Mort compilations, they did a self-released album,
covered "I Melt With You" on Thurtene, then put out Laid Up In Lavendar
on C'est La Mort (a damn fine album, scored 19 out of 22, and tied with
M1 Alternative's "The Little Threshing Floor" as our highest rated CLM release)
After that I heard nothing at all from them, and figured they must have
broken up or something. But today I find the new album "Lickerish" in the used
bins. It's got the same trio of musicians as ever, providing the same general
sound that will have people thinking "Dead Can Dance" and "Eden": exotic
percussion, Eastern melodies, violin, female vocalist (named Pine, you might
recall). However the mood this time is darker and maybe a little less lush,
with a harder edge to it. I haven't digested the CD fully yet but much of it
leaves me a little uneasy, something that will probably diminish when I get
used to their less pretty/blissful direction. You can find this album on
Circular Reasoning PO Box 170277, San Francisco, CA 94117-0277. Or write to
the band at PO Box 170034, San Francisco, CA 94117-0034. They're nice people
and they will definitely answer your mail.

    Listen I've seen some inexpensive CT cds in my local used music

what. I think they had "Garlands" and "Blue Bell knoll" and another one
which escapes memory. Should I spend the 10 bucks on those two? I don't
know why I'm asking other peoples opinion on what I like and don't like
but I got some good recomendations before so I'll try my luck again.

Anyone read the transcript of the Lush interview thing? It's like this:

      Emma = nice (She reminds me of Sandra Bullock)like the kinda
             woman who you'd want to be your girlfriend. Normal, you
             can take her home to meet the family.

      Miki = all attitude, bitchy and sarcastic. I don't know why
          Emma doesn't just drop Miki. I used to think Miki was cool
          but now she gets on my nerves. She needs a good booty
          whoopin' and a razor to shave her pits. Miki even went on to
          say how she went #1 in an alley once (can't you hold it!?!?)
          I thought all english women were supposed to be prim and

 I share your disamy with 1800MusicNow.
I work in the 'interactive' dept. for the

1800MusicNow Web site (MCI is the agency's
main client in addition to others)
And yeah, it does suck....

Some of us at the ad agency all know that the Web site
in no way compares to the others
out there (CDnow, CDconnection -- well, you
telnet there, but it's still a great operation,
Music Blvd. etc.). I guess this means
a telecommunications co. like
MCI should reconsider entering
a market they know little about.

I don't know what the problem
is, but it's either MCI doesn't know that
they have to deal with more distributors
to broaden the selection, or they don't
know how to position the "brand,"
e.g., who should they try to target
this service at.

It's definitely not for serious music
fans like those on 4AD-L.
It's for people who just heard
 "Wonderwall" and don't
give a damn what else is on the Oasis LP,
they just want that "neato 'Wonderwall'
record!" (said in the voice of a dippy
teen queen or vibrant house wife -- does that
species of woman even exist anymore?).
And as Brant has alluded
to, the prices are not "competitive," e.g.,
they suck as well.

    I got some CD's I sent away for (one of those buy one get nine

Chris Issak's "Heart Shaped World"- sucked. probably the only man I'd
ever have sex with though. Boring

Joy Division "permanent" - best of collection, not bad for something
released in the 70's. And I thought it was all disco crap then.

Tears for Fears "Tears Roll Down" - the 80's really sucked! Boring.

Real McCoy "Another Night" - here i thought this was gonna be techno,
it is but......Another shitty pop album. BORING!

fFfFFDSjHJhJHJg GFGtHThThis is undoubtably the BEST CD I OWN! I love
this. "Seasons chayaynge" *snif*. If you don't own it get it. I think
the lead singer looks like Miki Berenyi only with normal hair. I love
this. Anyone what to start a Tiffiny list (just kidding).

One more thing, anyone notice that LL Cool J always wears a hat?

from why I got into 4AD for in the first place; the love of the music!

What exactly were you looking for? If you are a Cocteau Twins newbie, I'm
sure someone here can give you some pointers :)

It's worth at least the price of the 800 call to hear the words "Aphex
Twin" spoken in a big manly Monster Trucks! voice. APhex Twin! Icct
Hedral! Comin' at ya! ARRRR!!!!

Honestly, it is a rather useful tool for making sure one wants nothing to
do with overhyped bands. I believe this saved me from Massive Attack,
among others.

That's where they got the name from, yes. From what I've heard, the Pale
Saints actually formed out of mutual admiration for Eyeless in Gaza.

As for the recent "Drumming"/"Pale Hands" reissue, it's existence is nothing
short of a miracle. The latter album was released only in Norway, only on
vinyl, in some ridiculously low number, and about a zillion years ago.
There's a little distortion in the transfer, yes, but it adds to the warm and
crackling organic feel of EiG's music.

As a recent EiG devotee (who can't seem to find enough of the stuff to sate
his hunger for their one-of-a-kind sound), I can't recommend the band enough.
They come across like a more windswept and romantic AR Kane. Very fragile
guitars, wheezing and burbling keyboards, an occasional dulcimer or chime,
and Martyn Bates' amazingly expressive vocals. His voice is a bit of a shock
at first. It seems so overpowering in the light of EiG's delicate musical
backing. But it grows on you and becomes quite addictive. Bates' lyrics are
rife with photographic/poetic images, though they sometimes sound a little
pretentious and overblown if you're in the 'wrong' mood. Just be sure to
approach his (substantial) lyrical gifts with a very open mind.

The band became progressively more 'normal' (the earlier the EiG, the more
spellbinding the music) - but even their poppy stuff has its own unmistakable
charms.
Definitely a 4AD-type band. I'm surprised Ivo never signed them back when
"4AD" meant something...

Does anyone know where to find Bates' collaboration with Mick Harris, "Murder
Ballads (Drift)"? I've been looking for that one (unsuccessfully) everywhere.
Please e-mail me if you can offer any help.

it's official. . .stereolab are playing at the paramount (that's in madison,
wi) on may 8 or 9 (i can't remember which day is minneapolis and which day
is here).  opening band is cornershop (or something like that), and tickets
are a paltry $10 (but sadly not available yet).  if anyone cares, i'm going
to try to interview them for the cardinal, so if any of you music industry
listies know their booking agency, help would be appreciated (otherwise i'll
have to go through the paramount, not that that's difficult).  well, since
only about 8 people on this list care about this, i'll shut up now.  i'm
excited and i had to tell someone.

Can anyone recall any hidden tracks off of 4AD stuff off the top of their
head?  The only hidden tracks I've ever heard are Danzig's Mother '93 and
Sarah McLaughlin's Possession.  Asking in case I missed anything.

What effect?!?!?!?

Here's the problem. You refer to Miki as "My beloved". You obviously
think you own her, you need help sir:) And what are you getting upset
for!?!?! I didn't put down their music, it rules! I suggest you all go
out and buy Bobby Mcferins (SP?) "Don't Worry be happy" You need it.

I think I'm going to go to the L.A. show, jump on stage with an
electric razor and shave Miki's pits, while I'm at it I think I'll get
Emma's too.

                        To all the other posts:

I really don't care who shaves what! How come everyone is getting so
damn tight about some stupid armpit comment? Unreal!
