this makes a little more sense figuring my girlfriend and eye went on a
search for st. albertus church yesterday using the map from the metro
times and we could not find it. we found st. josephat's which is a way
kool looking church. eye don't like the sanctum. eye think it's way cheesy
and overly goth pretentious. before flames start, eye do not mean that
goth is pretentious, i mean that the sanctum is. anyway, it's the cocteau
twins, who cares where they play, long as they are here...

If someone are interested in Black Rose discography, I presume this one is
Encounters (cassette only, self-produced, 1986)
Silent Tears (LP Mantra BR01,1989; reprinted on CD Contempo CONTEDISC 209, 1992)
Twilight (EP 12" Contempo TEMPO 167, 1991)
The Room Inside (CD Contempo CONTEDISC 168)
Waves (EP CD Contempo TEMPODISC 216, 1992)
Beyond The Walls Of Sleep (CD Contempo CONTE 222 CD, 1993)
Into The Glass House (CD Hyperium 3910129243, 1995)

Black Rose are an italian duo: Mara (vocals) and Erri (piano, guitar,
synths...).
different (heavy metal).

Ciao.

Hellooo...

>>Earlier TT is a frighteningly cheesy dayglo(tm) synthpop nightmare (you
remember them from heavy-MTV rotation in the '80s. That's your cue to
wince).<<

T'weren't that bad. Yes the material does show its age (so does Modern
English), but the songwriting is definately there. The best of the early TT
is their LP "It's My Life".

>>But the band pulled a complete turn-around from junk to genius with 1988's
"Spirit of Eden."<<

Yes, I remember it well...ah memories.

Actually, the LP before that, "Colour of Spring" (1985 I believe), is very
good as well. *The* transitional LP for them. You can hear the evoloution
from the Talk Talk of old into their final incarnation. "Chameleon Day", as
well as a B-side from "Life's What You Make It" called "It's Getting Late In
The Evening" are hints of the things to come, the latter song being a true
work of genius. FIND IT IF YOU CAN!!!!

As well, "Spirit of Eden" is no longer available in this country (the U.S. of
A.) on any format, so you'll have to look to other shores to find it.

Back to "Pygmalion"...I cannot stress enough that if you like this LP, then
you must get "Spirit of Eden" as a good deal of it sounds *exactly* the famed
TT album...particularly the opening track. The atmospheres are almost exact.

As for "Laughing Stock", if song structure is important to you (and it may
not be if you like "Pygmalion"), then you might want to avoid this. It is a
genius record though.

>>Richly textured, frightfully well-produced (maybe one of the best
production jobs ever; check Tim Friese-Greene's subsequent work on the first
Catherine Wheel
LP, too)<<

And a listy nod in the direction of Lush's "Sweetness and Light" EP which Tim
also had a heavy hand in.

So any news on the whereabouts of Mark Hollis? It's been a long while. I have
heard that TT are no more. I understand that Paul Webb (old TT bassist) had a
band called Orang that The The's Matt Johnson did some guest voxing on.
Haven't heard it, though.

Oh well...

hi all...

     does anyone know of any artists, other than mojave 3 and scenic,
who make melancholy, atmospheric, mellow music that has a
country/western tinge?  i've heard of a small, good thing(on
soleilmoon); they're supposed to make very slow slide-guitar ambient
music.  i also heard tarnation, but it didn't impress me as much as i
thought it would and i've heard that some of moose's later stuff does
this very ghostly, western type of music.  i apologize if this is a
little vague, but any help would be appreciated.

A friend of mine just went to Reckless Records to pick up a USED special
order...Unrest's "Kustom Karnal Blackexplotation".  However, it was
$20.99.  Needless to say, he passed (21 buck is pricey for a used LP with
holes in the cover...).  Anyway, I was lucky to get "Malcolm X Park" on
tape, and think it may be my favorite Unrest album, next to "Imperial".
Does anyone know if Mark or anybody plans on rereleasing "Malcolm X Park"
along with "Kustom Karnal..."????

Howdy.

>>does anyone know of any artists, other than mojave 3 and scenic, who make

- Ennio Morricone ("Good, Bad & the Ugly", "Fistful of Dollars", "Pistol for
Ringo", there's also compilations of this stuff...particularly if you like
Scenic)

- Tone (also on IPR...the one track I heard really sounded very
Scenic-esque...six-guitar instrumental stuff featuring ex-Unrester Phil
Krauth on drums from what I understand)

- Cowboy Junkies ("Trinity Sessions")

- Mazzy Star

- Drugstore (a harder Mazzy Star)

- American Music Club (see "Chanel No 5" and much of "Everclear" or stuff
with Bruce Kaphan's pedal-steel)

- Leonard Cohen ("The Best Of"...not country, but much of the Mojave 3 LP is
closer to early Leonard Cohen than it is to country IMO)

- Palace ("There is No One What Will Take Care of You" or "Days in the
Wake"...a little dab of Appalachia, not overly-produced, but atmospheric in
its own way and definately moody and/or mellow)

- Scud Mountain Boys (if you want Scenic or Mojave 3, this may not be your
cup of tea, but all in all "Massachusetts" is a very good album)

Happy trails...

hey,

        i asked mark the same thing recently. he wants to re-issue both
albums on vinyl (as well as make them available on cd) but will not be
able to do so until he regains the rights to the recordings from caroline
in 1998. :( it doesn't surprise me that reckless was asking $20.00 + for a
copy of "kustom karnal..." i've seen them go for more than that actually.
also, re: mark/unrest-air miami, as roy burns reported here recently, it
doesn't appear that air miami will be releasing material on 4ad anymore,
save a possible upcoming ep.

Subject: ESP CONTINENT "Mars Is a Ten"


I just returned from massive cd shopping in france and have returned to
the states with a hardy supply of the ESP CONTINENT cd "Mars Is a Ten".
This is the recent collaboration between Ian Masters (Pale Saints) &
Warren Defever (HNIA) for those of you not following the saga. It is a
full length album and VERY different from the ESP Summer 10" that has
been released in the states. Though long time HNIA fans will easily
recognize Warren's touch, the disc really highlights Ian's vocals and
melodies over signaturely strange instrumentation. It sounds somewhat
like the Spoonfed Hybrid stuff Ian released on Guernica, but imho
better - no distracting vocals from C.Trout and more melodic songwriting.

unfortuenately cds if France are not cheap, so its kinda pricey, but more
reliable than a lot of the internet order deals that have done nothing
but fail to deliver.

I'll take private posts if anybody's interested...

Opal's *Early Recordings* might fit this bill too.
(anyone have the CD they'd like to sell/trade to me?)
