>Just heard straight from the updated 4ad info line that the newest
addition to the 4ad family is an icelandic band called Gus Gus (well
that's what it sounded like on the phone, so the spelling might be off,
they are foreigners you know......) They seem to have released stuff in
iceland before. Anyone heard it / them?
Speaking of Icelandic bands, has anyone heard Unun? They're a big favorite on
the Sugarcubes/Bjork mailing list (Thor from the Sugarcubes is in Unun) and I've
always meant to go get one of their albums.

Anybody ever hear of a band called Blueshift Signal? They're kind of dreamy
ethereal; really gorgeous! I don't know if they're on 4-AD or not, but their
sound is really similar to a lot of 4-AD stuff, so I though it was worth a
try. I've been trying to track down one of their CD's (I think they're
local to Baltimore, but none of the stores have heard of them), but no luck.
If anyone has a lead on where to find a copy, I'd really appreciate the help!
(and definitely listen to them if you get the chance!).

Blueshift Signal have an album called Seven Natural Scenes out on
Ethereal Records. You can order it thru Bedazzled mail order, or get
info from Bedazzled's web page (http://www.iuma.com/Bedazzled/).
I'd say they're more along the lines of the Slowdive school of Shoegaze
than the 4ad stuff, but it is wonderful...

Could anyone enlighten me as to whether Faye Wong is on the US or UK
versions of "Milk and Kisses"? I think she has an amazing voice, very
Liz-like, and have the Hong Kong version of the album on which she sings on
"Serpent Skirt". The Hong Kong version goes so far as to have a sticker on
the front which says "Featuring Faye Wong"!!!

I picked up a used copy of the Throwing Muses' DIZZY single (bad 903 cd). It
is a UK CD single, circa 1989, with the following tracks:
2. santa claus
these two are studio tracks, produced by gary smith, recorded at fort apache.
these two are live tracks, recorded at the town and country club, 1 MAY 1988.
The CD and packaging are in excellant condition. Anyone interested in
purchasing it please let me know via personal email channels, NOT the list.
