The joke's on you; those are the actual albums. :) The nonsense in front
of them is just extra stuff; think of it as a really long intro.

Besides, Lynn and Henry don't actually exist; they are pseudonyms for
Sarah McLachlan and Dave Fielding.

(Speaking of bands that don't exist, did the new Area ever come out?)

flaming was in order there. i have many books on egon and know very well
that he was austrian. one could even say that he is still austrian, but
quite dead. quite austrian and quite dead.

EVERYONE PLEASE NOTE THAT EGON LEO ADOLF SCHIELE (yup the expressionist
artist who died at the very young age of twenty eight) IS AND ALWAYS HAS
BEEN AUSTRIAN!!!!!!!

Red House Painters' Shock Me single has a hidden instrumental track (very
nice it is too) and also Ocean Beach has one which I've seen referred to
somewhere as 'Brockwell Park Reprise' or something like that.
Just remembered as well. The Half Life EP by Pale Saints has a really
spooky kind of spoken word track hidden on the B-side of the vinly version.
I seem to remember that you had to make the record jump to play it.

That's all off the top of my head

anything really detrimental. Pop maybe, good yes. There rally are some goodies i
 there:
Childcatcher, 500, Ciao! and of course Ladykillers.

Is there any difference between the US and the UK release? I bought the first co

and it turned out to be a US release.  Murphy's law gave me a UK release in the

shop. I normally buy the UK releases because they have the original CAD000X cata

But as long as there is not a major difference I will stay calm

I had heard something even better:  that the reissue would be the
_Chains Changed_ EP coupled with stuff from their 1985 tapes.  That

They are just dialogue, not really songs.  They screw up the songs' order
listed on the back, so I suppose they could be considered "hidden."
That's all that comes to mind.

There's a self-titled album on Kranky. I have it on CD thanks to Gil.
It's kinda droney psychedelic stuff with organ and fuzztone guitar,
veering sometimes into Can-like weirdness; pleasant, but it doesn't turn
me on the way Bowery Electric does. The chick on the cover is quite
babe-alicious though in a Louise Brooks kind of way, he said in a
heartfelt yet not sexist tone of voice.

Hear, hear, BiZ, 'Semtex' is pretty damned amazing stuff.  I picked up my copy t
is
past weekend, and that disc has been more or less on repeat since this morning o

the discman.  If stuff like this truly is the shape of dreampop to come, then I
guess I might not feel too bad about all the old-school shoegazers either
(a) disappearing outright or (b) reinventing themselves to sad oblivion.

For all you Austin listies, I got my copy at 33 Degrees - give them a call
(476-7333) and see if they have any more copies.  (Plug! Plug! Plug!)

On a slight tangent, also picked up the new Lilys single this weekend, and all I
have to say is "Saw whaaaaaaat?"  Sounds like Kurt has gone off the retro-pop de
p
end, and despite the fact that this record is yet another sharp stylistic swerve
from this previous recordings, the single doth kick mighty hiney.  I wonder if M
.
Heasley has been swapping Love bootlegs with Mr. Ralske.

Jessamine have a CD out on Kranky, and that has to be one of the most
beautifully packaged releases evah.  It's so beautiful, I bought the LP for
the artwork and the CD for the extra tracks (the respective a-sides of the two
7"s that preceeded the LP).  They also have a track on an out-of-print
7"/zine, _Emily's #777_, and they're also on a 10" EP tribute record of the
Silver Apples.

Their major sonic weapon of choice is the analog oscillator (i.e. Moog),
although also notable is the use of dreamy girlvox and the buzzy wallops of
guitar.  At times they sound like Stereolab on drano, a less swirly MBV, and
post-Barrett, pre-'Dark Side'-era Pink Floyd.  Cool does not even begin to
describe the brilliance that is Jessamine.

Word has it there is a new double-lp in the works.  Rejoice, rejoice.  ;)

Subject: Lush interview transcript


If anyone is interested, the transcript of the IRC chat interview
with Miki and Emma last week is available on the Web.  Check out:


You can find it from there.  It's a moderately interesting iview.
BTW, The "other" Brian's comments about armpit shaving were related
to that interview where it comes up more than once.  In his defence,
I believe his comments were an inneffective attempt at sarcasm
(ineffective since most 4AD-Lers haven't read the iview!)

As for the apparent differences in Emma and Miki's personality, I
think a great deal of it is inflicted by their fans and interviewers.
Miki is asked if she is an "Asian role model".  Nobody asks Emma
if she is a "Brunette role model" or a "White, middle-class British
role model".  At concerts, people yell "Miki! Show us your tits!".
I've never heard similar comments addressed to Emma.  Miki likes
a pint and likes the Spurs even more, so she is treated in a laddish
fashion and acts laddish in response.  But something tells me that
if Emma was treated the same way as Miki has been, she would be
similarly abrasive.

BTW, as for Miki's similarity to Pinky, ironically enough, I happen
to own a copy of Graham Greene's _Brighton Rock_ with Miki's
signature in it.  I got her autograph in Brighton and all I had on
me was a copy of the book.  She signed it: "Great book! Miki (Pinky)"

Ahem, je m'excuse, mais the correct answer is "no, not really." As one of
the resident "old school" CT fans, it is of course my duty to point this
out. I think HoLV is OK, pretty good even, but it doesn't come close to
touching the brilliance of previous work IMO. (I sed it before, an I'll say
it again...) But it's all relative. i.e.:

If you, Scott, Mari, and / or Brian, like "Four Calendar Cafe," then you may
want to take my recommendation for early CT as an anti-recommendation. Or
not. Point is, I can't stand FCC, and that's where I'm coming from.

So, yes HoLV is like previous work _compared to FCC_... but if you compare
just HoLV to the prior catalogue, it is much different. Brighter, basically
poppier. Earlier CT goes from gorgeous velvety near-ambient ("Victorialand")
to Shadowy-textured surreal songs of beautiful melancholy ("Treasure," etc.)
to head-spinning whirlwind guitar ("Garlands")...

That's in reverse chrono-order...

Na-uh I thought Emma was 29

I think the Bassist looks more like Mr. Bean.

BTW, does anyone have tablatures from the new Lush CD, I've only a few
