Is there a stereotype that 4AD fans fall into that some of us don't know about?
i.e., are we preoccupied with drugs and suicide??? Perhaps because some of us
STILL haven't received our limited edition This Rimy River...with the free CD of
demo tracks from Lush, Scheer, Jive Bombers, Mojave 3, Heidi Berry, Brendan
Perry, and His Name Is Alive plus an previously unreleased Red House Painters
song with a 23 minute guitar solo (limited edition of 23)...

That depends.  I love Spooky and Gala and I really like the new album while
others love Spooky and Gala and HATE the new album because it sounds NOTHING
like Spooky or Gala, which is understandable.  If you can appreciate a good
pop tune and have a lot of fun with it then you'll like Lovelife.  If you
despise anything that even resembles pop then stay away.  Don't expect
effects or jangly spangly guitars because there aren't any.  At first, this
album caused me to drop my jaw and ask "Is that LUSH???"  The guitars are
harder and more traditional.  And Miki's voice is barely recognizable on
'Ladykillers' because it's so low.  The lyrics and the songs are more
concrete than airy and are way more accessible than Spooky or Gala.  (To
some, accessible is baaad, verrry baaadd.)

I, too, thought 'Single Girl' was repugnant at first but after you hear it
in the context of the album it really isn't that distasteful.  Although many
will disagree.  You just have to be very open minded about it.  And let's
face it, if Lush had put out another Spookyish or Gala-like album some
people would still be saying things like "It's just a second-rate rehash of
Spooky" or  "It's boring and it's been done before why don't they move on?"

There are only two songs on Lovelife that I don't like:  'Olympia' (Blechh)
and 'Tralala' (I just can't get used to it)        The other ten songs are
highly enjoyable especially 'The Childcatcher'.  That's probably my favorite
because of it's lyrics.  After the song is over it makes you wanna go "Yeah,
TAKE THAT ASSHOLE!!!!"  Plus it's got a great hook.

Personally, I don't think you'd be blowing your money, but as I said before
it really depends on your own musical tastes and how far you can stray from
your preconceived notion of the band called Lush.

That's a wonderful sentiment, and I hate to add to the off-topic-ness by
dragging your post along further (because I *agree* with you), but this
is, honestly, the most off-topic list I've participated in.  Reminders in

Subject: Chris Explains....(Not an apology)


My posting obviously stems from the original "I wanna get high" posting.
If a person can get away with a posting like this, then we could have requests
for "songs to clean my car to", "songs for urinating" etc. I just happened to
choose suicide, because more songs exist dealing with this not so happy
topic than, say, a carwash or a piss.

Suicide is a fact of life.  Many of us on this list will know somebody who has
taken their own life. I am no exception, but avoiding the issue doesn't undo
what has happened. And not to sound like a prude, is taking drugs any better
than suicide. A whole bunch of people mailed me asking me to reconsider my
decision! Did anybody try and talk the person wanting to get high out of taking 
rugs.
As far as I am concerned, using drugs is a surefire way of killing yourself in a
y case.
I know more people whose lives have been completely fucked up by the taking of
"harmless" drugs going from having decent jobs to ending up living in parks, car
accidents
from being so stoned (innocent 3rd parties being involved) etc.

The aftermath / pain of suicide is short (for people left behind). Drugs of cour
e can affect
other people for years and years. Which is worse?

Enough already.

It's not even worth the 150,- GBP I paid for it, back in October 1987. I
still remember how disappointed I was when I got the box set, and how
embarrased I was when I showed it to a couple of friends, and they asked me
"How much did it cost?"
The two numbered screen prints that are enclosed, are the only items that
make the set somehow valuable, but apart from that: if you have the ltd. LP,
the video, the cassette and the CD, I can give you the precise measurments
of the ash wood box, so you can build one yourself!

I've only seen snap shots of the pages, as displayed in Newcastle, but they
looked rather impressive. Let me put it this way: the TRR ltd. edition is
certainly more value for money that the LIAE ltd. box!!

Chris Limb adds his tuppenceworth:
Perhaps so, but to tell the truth I do quite enjoy SOME of the off topic
threads as long as they don't go on too long.  Healthy and stimulating
debate and discourse if you ask me.  Wasn't too keen on the recent

He Artc, it was just a joke! If you check LOG9510 of the 4AD-L you'll see
that around October the 5th 1995 I've posted all details about the ltd.

No, unfortunately not (there are TWO free CD's, by the way).
However, 4AD will soon re-release an old 1957 Rhythm & Blues hit (THIS IS
TRUE!!). I hope that'll make up for you.

Bay Area listies -- On the way to work I heard an announcement on KSCU

Munchichi, will be hosting a two-hour Cocteau Twins special next
Thursday, 9 May, from 4 to 6PM. He'll be playing lots of their music,
interviewing them, and giving away prizes such as copies of the box set.
Presumably this is in conjunction with KSCU's ongoing fund-raiser.

Hey, isn't GrimaceSCU@aol.com on this list? Maybe he can send out some
more details.

[Someone might want to forward this news to the Cocteau Twins list. I
unsubscribed last week, it just got too too tiresome. "Tishbite CD1 is
even better than CD2". "No it isn't!" "Yes it is!" Actually come to think
of it that sounds just like the 4AD list. Oh well...]

I hope this is true. I've been badgering a friend of mine who's just signed to
One Little Indian (owners of Rough Trade) to try and get me a tape copy of this
for a while. According to a review in The Lizard last summer, it really is their
piece-de-resistance too. All we need now is that oft-promised third Blue Nile
LP, and I might even start being nice to everyone.

Actually, they had to leave the HNIA tracks off of it, but I've heard that
they are putting them on the second cd that will be packaged with the deluxe

    Lack of bass was their characteristic on their earlier phase. And
i think it's great too.
    They did a great jewel without bass even in their last days, i'm
refering to Dreamweapon, which is a song that lasts more than 40 min!!
Just like Sonic says: "Conciousness changes via repetition".
Dreamweapon is a real gem, really an adictive hipnorise !

>But hey, anything by Spiritualized (the band Jason formed after
>Spaceman 3) is even better

    Ummm, Spiritualized is pretty great. Pure Phase was for me the
best CD from 1995. But I think that Spectrum is absolutely great too.
And so are E.A.R and Spacemen 3. I really love all sp* bands!!

>...Obthislisty, I prefer This Mortal Coil's "Filigree and Shadow".

    And lovesliescrushing, slowdive, silvania, swallow, etc.

Actually, I care...I am quite a Wire lover.  I cared enough to buy this cd,
which has gotten little mention on this list...it is a mixed bag to be
honest.  Overall, it is really quite excellent.  The Lush cover of
"Mannequin" is really very good, and I hate to bring up El___ca, but Lush
are redeemed since they covered "Outdoor Miner" so long ago.  My Bloody
Valentine's "Map Ref" is totally pleasant and pretty faithful to the
original, except so sweetened by Belinda's vocal.  It is not a radical
departure from "Loveless" which is both good and bad for reasons you surely
know.  Other highlights that I enjoy are Laika's "German Shepherds", The
Petty Tyrants' "Our Swimmer" (Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy is the
vocalist...scary to admit for me but it is great), Polar Bear's "Being
Sucked In" which reworks the original interestingly (who are Polar Bear
anyway?), Transformer (two of whom used to be in Disco Inferno) doing
"Outdoor Miner" which is good but not as great as FSA, and there's some
awful stuff by Chris Connelly and Mike Watt.  Overall worthwhile, even
Godflesh and Band of Susans.

so buy.  Or buy an overlooked Wire album, but don't get me started...
