This may be a bit obscure (or maybe not), but I'm wondering if Lush ever
had a member named Alex Ayuli.  I ask because in a book I'm reading on
world politics and globalization called _Global Dreams_ there exists this

"Alex Ayuli, a member of the English band Lush, calls the group's music
 'dream pop.' 'It's kind of a nihilistic thing, a way for kids to get away
 from this horrible English life; it allows you to lose yourself in music and
 get away from your factory job."

Was this person ever actually in the band??????  I don't think so,
but I'd like to know.

        I think this is an error.  Alex was a member of A.R. Kane, the group
that first described their music as "dream pop."
        The term has, of course, been used to describe many bands since then,
including Lush.

and I'll stick them in there somewhere.

Data -- there's quite a few releases I have no data on.  Mainly
because I don't have the releases in questions.  So could someone have
a peek through the eyesore at ifi and mail me the missing pieces?

I didn't think I was going to do any more sleeve scans, but I seem to
have changed my mind.  I've digged out (about) 20 items for scanning,
and if the scanner isn't dead, I'll be entering them into the data

Subject: Stina Nordenstam + Annie Williams = Anja Garbarek


New hairdo, new albums, new eyesore.  Me happy!

Note -- none of the following is my opinion.  It is objective fact.
Deal!=20

Lush - Lovelife

Like, like -- yecch!  It's not that this is a bad album, but as a
group that has produced near-godhead (the Mad Love ep, for instance),
this just won't do.  Elastica does this thing badly enough -- we don't
need Lush to do a second-rate imitation of something that's definitely
not worth imitating in the first place.  I have yet to hear anything
that could be termed "britpop" that didn't such wet farts out of dead
pigeons.  Oasis, Blur, Cast (ad nauseum) -- burn in hell!  I'm not
declaring Lush dead just yet, though.  They may still have something
worthwhile in them.  Let's hope this album flopped miserably so that
Emma can take over the band and do more dancey & dreamey stuff.

Cocteau Twins - Milk & Kisses

Y'all said that 4 Calendar Cafe sucked, so I didn't buy that one.  (I
have everything else the Twins have done, so that took some self
control on my part.)  Then y'all said that this album was better.  So
I bought it.  =ABSnore=BB has been my must audible reaction so far.  It's
kinda like all those old CT albums I love, only not very good.  (That
doesn't make sense, but.)  I've listened to the album tons of times,
and nothing has stuck.  Lalala.  Boooring.  I declare CT officially
dead as of now.

David Bowie - 1. Outside

Speaking of the dead, here we have one zombie that seems to be getting
rather frisky.  After those horrible eighties, Bowie tried his best on
that "White Tie Black Noise" album, but it didn't really work.  He
then plagiarized his own early seventies' albums on the soundtrack to
"The Buddha of Suburbia".  And it worked!  (For a few songs.)  And now
he's done an album that actually is good.  I'm amazed.  Chaotic &
messy & good.

Anja Garbarek - Ballon Moon

Yes, she's probably the daughter of that Jan Garbarek jazzbo guy.  I
don't really know fer shure.  This album is being given a quite
massive push in Norway right now, and all the papers say that she's
the Norwegian Bjork.  Which is total nonsense.  She's more like Stina
Nordenstam coupled with Annie Williams; or rather Laika, AC Marias &
the Wire guys.  And "Mother Stands for Comfort" by Kate Bush.  With
some Crammed snuck in there as well.  But not like anyone, come to
think of it.  She does the "sing-all-over-the-place" thing very well,
and then she does that "let's-use-absolutely-all-samples-on-this-sampler"
thing, and she also does the "sweet-tune-that-sounds-a-bit-like-jazz-
but-isn't" thing.  Plink, plonk, wheee-ooh.  I think I'm in like.
Perhaps even in love.  Perhaps not. This album will be foisted upon
the rest of the world this automn (or something like that).  Prepare
to be puzzled, because you *will* hear this album.

Pet Shop Boys - Before

Well, I mentioned David Bowie, so I have to mention the Boys.  I read
in a review that this single sounded more like Behavior than Very, so
I natcherally expected "Being Boring II".  Instead I got a plain
boring song.  I think this has to be the most lack-lustre thing the
otherwise brilliant Pet Shop Boys have ever done.

David Bowie - Hello Spaceboy

PSB remix DB!  Wowsie.  They've added a dance beat to a very chaotic
track, and it totally rocks!  It rocks!  So there!  Nice to hear Neil
sing duet with David, although they're not exactly a well matched
pair.  I mean, Bowie can actually *sing*!  Neil kinda just wavers
around tunes.  Sounds *mahvellous*, though.

Hm.  3 out of 6 items actually have some sort of relevance to this
mailing list.  I'm slipping rapidly into relevancy!  Stop me before I
write on topic again!

Me too! but alas ...

Agate Lines is a pretty rare (i've never seen it, and i'm always on the lookout
for Area) compilation that includes songs from all four albums (i believe) and a
few songs that i think were only released on tape before their C'est La Mort
days (prior to their debut LP on Office records).  There was a full-on
discography/everythingography a year ago (or was it two or three?) that was
compiled.  Is the keeper of this thing still on the list???

Those stinkers at Projekt (Relic) keep saying they're gonna rerelease the old
*Area* CD's but i don't see it in the catalogue.  Sure, they're too busy
arranging cool concerts in Chicago just as soon as i leave the midwest.  Ahh,
what do i care?  I've got the CDs already ... but what if they fall apart like
all the vinyl freaks keep saying?  what if i'm left without Lynn's lovely lunar
lullabies at night?  What if i go insane and think i can't hear them anymore
because of the power of suggestion?  ... um, i'll go to sleep now and stop

Well, personally I highly recommend ESP-Beetles and the Ohms... both of which
you'll like if you're into the "noise" thing.  There are a few others too
that are well worth the $4.50, such as: Godzuki (perfect compliment to the
new CD!)Time Piano, and the Little Princess...and don't forget to order your
Buttercake incense!!!  Word has it that they're coming out with Sausage
incense next...they're going for the whole breakfast thing.

As far as postage goes...I think $2 per tape is fair enough compensation....
but I'm going to try and get a hold of Davin today about other stuff, and
I'll ask to be sure.

They're too busy releasing Ordo Virtuum Solis (or whatever the hell?) and
Human Drama junk. We can expect out Area reissues around the same time as
the next Star Wars movie. (Bleagh.)

Maybe you ought to make dozens of backup copies on tape, and distribute
them strategically around the country...just in case something

I believe this stuff counts upon their last material as an actual,
credible band (before everyone with any talent was replaced). Polarlicht
made it onto Viva, which is my favorite album by a 4AD expatriate. The
mood borders the poppier, more melodic end of Tocsin, with the likes of
Polarlicht in the borderlands and broadening to include fun guitar pop a
la old Modern English and electronics that reminds me of early Bel Canto,
or Floodland. I am decribing this album because it is about as rare as
69, Ecstacy and Wine, and Pentamerous Metamorphosis put together...what
you have on that Peel disc, aside from Polarlicht, is a couple of b-sides
from a fairly rare single, and a song that to my knowledge has appeared
nowhere else.

> Just wondering what the general opinion was on this compared to their other
> releases.

If you like it, Viva is a sure bet. Tocsin is probably their best album
and has a unique feel to it which you can't really get anyplace else.
Fetisch is their first album. It rocks and is a ton of fun but is punky
and full o' noise, so not necessarily everyone's thing. And then there is
Devils, which is just a big pile of shit, = German pop metal in its
purest and mot vile form, and you don't need to think about it ever
again. :p

I believe the single I mentioned is for Sickle Moon and was only released
on Vinyl. (If anyone has a CD of this I will trade just about anything
for it.)

        Thanks, Larry.  Not only did I not catch that but I wrote "sexual
orgasm" and have since learned that an orgasm by definition is sexual,
so to say "sexual orgasm" is silly of me.

Um... okay, i can take a hint.  Anyone who wants a copy of any AREA album(s)

so all you knowledgable people out there know where I could go on the

year?  or does even free stuff now have a price...

any ideas would be most appreciated.  if I can't find these playlists
for these time periods, I'll have to change the time line to a more

personally don't think Relic (or anyone else for that matter) should waste
their time rereleasing the individual albums--they should release a box set, or
else cram all the non-album tracks onto the existing 4 (or 5, depending on what
you consider an "album") albums. Though there isn't all that much room on some
of them.
I'd have to agree with the person who said to work backwards if you liked
Fragments.  My favorite Area album has always been _Radio Caroline_, which was
their first full length CD.  But they are all very solid albums.
If anyone is interested, I'd be glad to tape off any of the Area you might
need in exchange for an equally compelling tape on your part.

I am not sure if they are considered thislisty or not, but since there was
some talk of them last week I thought that I would mention that they will
be in Chicago on 15 May.  The show is at the Metro.  I can't remember if
its doors or show at 9.  Tickets are $12 through ticketmaster.  What I nice
way to start the summer.. . the last final exam of my undergrauate career

These were originally released on wax trax or sweat box.  Third mind must
have bought up the rights... Hrmmm....

If you would like a more orchestral/organic feel... get L'esprit.
Else I recommend Anatomy of a Poet which seems to be (IMO) a more mature
and varied follow-up to the two you own. I'd also say get Scatter...
but it's a compilation of rarities, remixes, and favorite tracks.
Scatter also comes with a wonderful booklet of quotes, photos, and reviews.

Hi all:

I spotted this on a browse of  the alt.asian-movies newsgroup:
-------------------------------

On Friday, April 26, I went to my local Chinese CD shop (Man Chi, 745 Clay
Street, San Francisco--between Kearny and Grant) and Milk and Kisses, the
new Cocteau Twins album with Faye Wong has arrived.

I've played "Serpentkiss," the song she sings on and it's very pretty, but
it doesn't sound like Faye.  It sounds like the Cocteau Twins (who are
great, by the way!).--I have a hard time picking out Faye's voice.  (Yes,
I got the right release.  It mentions her in English in the liner notes.)
This will be quite a coup for Faye if she's actually responsible for
making the Cocteau Twins popular in H.K.!

----------------------------------

Thought this was of interest to folks on the list.
"Chungking Express," go for it (the Faye Wong mentioned
above is in it). I loved the photography
in it--overall, a very existential movie.
And on a thislisty movie vein, "James
and the Giant Peach" rocks too...it made me feel
like I was five years old again.

With all the recent talk on Area, it might be worth noting that my tastes seem
to have changed a bit and I'm not as enthusiastic about their music as I once
was. So if anyone is looking for like-new copies of the Radio Caroline, The
Perfect Dream, Between Purple and Pink, and Fragments of the Morning CDs, the
right offer might compel me to (in the words of Sting) set them free. Please
e-mail me privately if interested.

hey!

i haven't seen or heard about faye wong being in the cocteau twins cd...i
have the ltd ed one in the gatefold type packaging and it doesn't even
mention faye wong...does the version with her in it have extra tracks?

i really love "milk and kisses"...really reminds me of blue bell
knoll..."calfskin smack" sounds like "ella megalast burls forever"...do any
of you think?  and this version of "half-gifts" sounds like a carnival
ride...

laters.

Subject: Re: XMAL Deutschland Peel Sessions


The tracks on the Peel Session CD are less refined versions of
the superior Sequenz EP.

Track listing for Sequenz EP is:

jahr um jahr ii
autumn
polarlicht

jahr um jahr ii could be considered as the extended version of jahr um
jahr i with around double the playing time and added effects mixed in.

the polarlicht Sequenz EP version is the most refined/complex, followed by
a less intricate Viva LP version, and the rather simple in comparison Peel
Session version.

the peel session cd/sequenz ep is a cross between the slightly darker
Tocsin album and the melodic/lighter Viva album.
Tocsin is sung entirely in German while Viva contains a mixture of German
and English.

XMAL D's first album fetisch is very dark with simple music lines and
repetitive lyrics.  the last album devils is ms. huwe singing entirely in
poppy english which well...you'd only want to buy if you were a completist.

imho if you like the peel session cd grab the sequenz ep/viva lp/tocsin lp
if you see em. (without hesitation)
