I wonder if anybody wants to go to the DCD concert in Prague on June 11.
I live in Warsaw and would like to know if there is somebody from Poland who
is also interested in it (apart from my friends).
If sb is going there too or just has some info concerning tickets (prices & how
can I book tickets from Warsaw, etc.), please e-mail me privately.
Any suggestions for pre-concert gatherings are also welcome.

Is 'Leaves Me Blind' really their first album? I have an LP copy (there's a
CD too) of a self-titled 10-track LP on the Australian SHOCK label, from 1990.
About the Ivo-Remix: do you know if the Ivo remix you mention, is one of the
mixes on the 4AD/GUERNICA 'I Was Right' promo-only 12" (GU 2 46)? This 12"
contains the LP version, and extended mix (10'00") and a remix (3'16"), but
the label doesn't mention the people involved in the (re)mixing.

This will harken back to a sub-sub thread about the
cure, their new record etc...
i saw them on tele twice this weekend: saturday night live
and MTV. The MTV thingy was a mini-concert of sorts.
I caught the last 45 minutes of the mtv show.
anyway, i take back everything i said about lingering
hopes for a return to form for the cure. they played
exclusively from the new record on MTV, and played
'in between days' and 'mint car' on SNL.
verdict: they were terrible. and bob seemed to be having
a wonderful, almost gleeful time of it all. as if the
entire group (all of whom are new as far as i could tell
except for the keyboardist, who joined for disintegration?)
were an advert for prozac or gleeminex, unaware of the stinkiness
of these new curesongs. the 200 or so people in the
audience were paying no attention to the band whatsoever, looking
around for the camera or were they averting their eyes from the
sorry sight before them? i was very very very displeased.
the new songs sound just as flat and boring live as they do on
the lp. the version of 'inbetween days' on SNL was mechanical,
in summary, a sad spectacle. i usedto think robert smith was
_all that_, but am now wondering if the influence of the
now departed, ex-cure members (lol, porl, simon) is what
kept songs like 'mint car' and 'friday im in love' from
being released waay back then.

Try some of the shops in Camden Yard as well.
If you're really tied to find Listy stuff then call:
15 Alma Road, London SW18 1AA
Its their record label in their city, so they should
know some other places you can find their stuff.
They have a basement warehouse as well there,
so they might be able to sell you something.
This is where they have done mail order from.
But I would call them first to tell them you're
looking for something. You might even catch

and obtaining some really neat pictures and other thing happening up there

on local TV. Down here in Russia people still have quite vague impression
of what Internet looks like and he hopes to get people interested in

I just wanted to tell everyone that I was able to interview Rachel Goswell
of Mojave 3 on Friday May 10, 1975 (my birthday) before their show in St. Louis!
She was really lovely and answered all of my Slowdive/Mojave questions.
Afterwards, she signed my "Holding Our Breath" EP, my BLUE DAY compilation,
and my M3 CD. I've got the interview on tape. Once I type it up for my
college radio station's 'zine, I'll send it to de liste.
As for the show....Mojave 3 were beautiful. The new songs sound great! It
was really good to see Simon from Chapterhouse on stage again. Dunno about
the scheer set, I decided to hit the bar for that. Lush were amazing! The
OK new songs sounded 10 times better than the LP. The absolute highlight of
the evening was Lush's last encore when Miki announced their "4AD supergroup"
where Lush performed "Ciao" with Neil Halstead doing Jarvis' vocals, Ian
McCutcheon (M3) on tambourine, and Audrey Gallagher (scheer) doing back-up
"aahh" vocals. INCREDIBLE. Neil was drunk as a skunk wearing Ian's cowboy
hat, but it still sounded better than the LP version.
Anyway I had I great time! If anyone's got any comments, mail them to me, not
the list cuz I'm currently unsubbed.

>Does anyone know what the band called THE SOUND sound like?
They were great! I don't know what's on the compilation but the first two
or three SOUND albums were very good - guitar, bass, drums, male vocals and
good songs - (back in the eighties). In the early days they were compared
to U2 but I never thought that was right. You should listen to it first...
(or isn't that a normal thing to do in the us before you buy a record? I
never buy a record without listenling to it first - well, except for the
4AD stuff... but that's another story).
The lead singer of The Sound still releases solo-stuff under his real name
- correct me if I'm wrong - 'Adrian Borland'.

They seemed to me somewhat comparable in style to Echo and the Bunnymen.
Their albums do sound a bit dated production-wise but they have that great
80s angst-ish sound. Renascent in the UK has just released the first of
their reissues which includes 'Heads and Hearts' and 'Shock of Daylight' (EP)
(on one CD) and there should be more coming.

Correct! In fact, he recently finished his fourth (? - the name escapes me
at the present) which will be released in the States on Setanta (the first
US issue of a Borland recording).
