Not many takers on the last one... and only 50% of those followed through
with their "I want it"s.  I'm still moving back home in 2 weeks, still
going to Japan in September, and still hoping to get rid of these.  Order
a few and I'll do my best to make a "deal".  If you've got ... alternative
ideas for my prices, go ahead and let me know.  I'll try to work it out
with you.

Well... the Bowery Electric track is described on the cover as being
from a forthcoming LP, which might mean either that Sonic is planning
to put it out in the UK (as Flying Nun did with Labradford's debut
album), or that Space Age are planning some sort of Bowery Electric
compilation.  I bought the Space Age comp and the Spectrum/Jessamine EP
at the weekend - the compilation was fairly cheap (and since my copy of
"Dreamweapon" is the SFTRI one, "Ecstasy" is new on CD for me).  The
only exclusive track on it is not much cop, though - Sonic reciting the
Bacon quote from the sleeve over some (for him) unimaginative music.
The EP (over half an hour for five quid - bargain!) is fine - I'm not
too keen on the Silver Apples song, but the rest of it is first-rate
drone/bleep/wibble music.  Speaking of which, my other weekend purchase
was Fuxa's "Three Field Rotation", which is great stuff but doesn't
make the 35 minute mark and cost me twelve quid - over twice as much as
the Spectrum EP for the same time.

Subject: Sending demo of Stellar

Thanks to everybody in the list, I got lots of contacts to send stuff of my
demo tapes label. I'll be sending the tapes till the end of this week. Sorry
for the delay but I had to remake the cover in order to make so many tapes and s
nd it abroad by mail.
I'll record in the end of the demo some extra songs by other brazilian bands
and will enclose a catalog with all their names and demos. I'm not sure I'll
have the amount of photos required by soooo many zines, I'll try to send good
xerox copies somehow.
For those interested in making more contacts in Brazil via web, here are some
good starting addresses:

 - the list to debate about our indie scene is called INDIE-BRASIL. To sign it,
send a message to [email protected] and write in the message:
subscribe indie-brasil 
  unfortunatelly, the list has more messages in portuguese but if a considerable
amount of foreigners arrive, surely it'll change


 - [email protected]
   this guy has a zine called Esquizofrenia and plays in a very good band called
Comespace - he has good contacts in Europe too


 - [email protected]
   http://www.dcc.ufba.br/~deus
   Messias plays in brincando de deus, one of our best bands. They have a CD out
and are releasing a 7" by Quiddity Records from USA.

 - [email protected]
   she's the girl who sings in Stellar

 - [email protected]
   she's my sister, she writes a column for my fanzine with news from London

 - [email protected]
   he plays in Speed Whale, another band from Midsummer Madness

 - [email protected]
   he plays in a band called trap and has a CD out too

 - http://cdj.com.br
   this is our site of Cerberus Digital Jukebox - there you'll find brazilian
bands not that good.

Thanks again,

are you sure about this? piece in the english music press a couple of
weeks ago mentioned snow ponies as being debbie g, katherine ex-stereolab
and, er, bloke ex of quickspace supersport. is mary stereolab in addition
to katherine or instead of (stereolab were in states at the time of the
gig so...)?

secret stereolab gig here in london last thursday btw. they played under
the name 'soop' (they were a bit jetlagged and not their usual selves) at
the highbury garage supporting  pram (who were wonderful) and e.a.r.
(sonic boom and various mates being 'experimental' - ick).

and of some interest to some of you at least there's a new cd out by
trembling blue stars called 'her handwriting' which is robert from the
field mice / northern picture library so it's bound to be ace.

Subject: First gig of DCD's world tour

Since I haven't contributed before, I think that I couldn't really have
picked a better time to start.  As the subject line asserts, Dead Can
Dance played the Olympia last night here in Dublin.  Hence the dates you
have probably been getting about the tour dates are right.  As far as
gigs go, it probably gets my best of '96 vote straight off.  It was a
very relaxed atmosphere in the theatre: the whole band were obviously
quite laid back about the whole affair, and this trait was developed
further when all the players displayed great fluidity in moving from one
instrument to another, Brendan Perry especially.  The crowd were great:
the token goth contingent plus a surprisingly broad crosssection of the
public.  But the music! ah, the music!  It was mostly new material from
'Spiritchaser', plus a medley of old favourites ('Rakim', 'Oman',
'Cantara, et al.)  The theatre just filled with shimmering music and
powerful rhythms for a full two hours, and there was not one person
sitting down in the whole place after the second encore.  They provided a
couple of hair-raising moments in taking what seemed like an age in
coming back out for encores, but what was played more than made up for
that. Even more importantly, the whole band seemed to enjoy themselves
throughout (we got encouraging grunts from Perry and chirrups from
Gerrard from time to time) and that reflected in the music.  All in all,
you will regret it for the rest of your life if you miss them on this
tour. Get your ticket early.

Owen

P.S.  Come to think of it, there was a bit of a Michael Jackson vibe off
Lisa Gerrard in her white robe and air kissing.  Luckily there was no
Jarvis Cocker to leap onstage to pull a mooner!

P.P.S. I'm left with a strange urge to learn how to play the yang chi'in...

this is what i call a perfect "help me unsub" msg!  problems with people a
        whose e-mail address changes depending on which machine he or she
        use (like mine. it can either be dorsai.dorsai, or amanda.dorsai)
        is quite common.  it is actually a well-known fact to those of us
        who have been on the list since the change to this machine @
        american.edu.
my point (and i do have one!) is that this work of art in netiquete should
        be included in the FAQ.  how about it, Jens?  Mr. Walzner must be
        immortalize, and every new list member should not only receive a
        FAQ just about unsubbing, but they should also follow his ethics!
        realise how u subbed to the list, figure out if ur e-mail address
        changes, and always remember which e-mail address u used to sub (read:
        see rule number one).
of course, after everything else fails, u can always ask for help.  as Mr.
        Walzner did, state what u think went wrong, and tell us what u
        have done so far.  it will save time if those who decide to help
        know what u have tried already, and what u think it is wrong.
and about Mr. Jones (system admin), as the current FAQ states, he usually
        doesn't reply to msgs very promptly.  the address i have is in the
        faq:  [email protected]
he might even have contacted u already, or at least seen ur msg (does Jim
        read the list?  as far as i know, i don't think he has never posted
        any msgs).  so hopefully help is on the way.

take care;

Subject: Another cocteau contest....

Okay, it looks like I got the okay from the cocteaus that people can win
backstage passes for their US shows. i have to get the fine details before
i post the contest, but it's going to  happen! Anyway, there will be two
winners for each city and the prize is only a backstage pass (not a ticket
to get into the show). it looks like another trivia question contest.

Yeah - true 'dat! You're 112.5% correct. Snow Ponies is DG and KATHERINE
GIFFORD, not Mary Hansen. I'd forgotten about the Quickspace guy. Thanks for
showing me the error of my ways.

Anyone heard Th' Faith Healer's amazing Abba cover ("S.O.S.") from their
Clawfist 7"? Proof that just 'cause it's Abba doesn't mean it has to bite.
NOT that I'm suggesting that Laika cover Ace of Base, but...

>field mice / northern picture library so it's bound to be ace.

The Trembling Blue Stars album, third release on the reformed
Sarah-now-Shinkansen label, is a marvelous debut. It's Robert Wratten and
someone from St. Etienne, but it seems like 'Bobby' through and through. Some
gentle dancey stuff (like NPL's debut "Love Song For the Dead Che"), lots of
pearlescent guitars and melty keyboards - and RW's incomparably sweet voice.
Not quite NPL, and there's nothing quite as experimental as "Dreams and Stars
and Sleep" (or even the Field Mice's "Tilting at Windmills"), but it's the
quality dreamy-pop you'd expect from Sarahfolk. Too bad that Robert didn't
end up collaborating with Lauren Axelrod (Dart) on this project, as was
planned, because that could have been really extraordinary.

Don't miss the Tompot Blenny "Thinking of Ways of Keeping You Warm" 7"
either. Shinkansen #2. No personnel information in the cute liner notes, but
it's a precious (but not too precious) subdued affair of emotional male
vocals (a little East River Pipe, a little Portastatic, a little Field Mice)
and muted jangley guitars. Sarah-by-the-numbers, but since when was that a
bad thing. And admit it - you really started to miss that Sarah-brand(tm)
twee. I know I did.

Subject: Mail-order problem... advice?

Hi kids.

I made an order to Parasol 3 weeks ago for 2 CDs.  I never got them, so I
emailed Parasol.  I ended up emailing back and forth with them a few
times, them telling me they were 'looking,' but nothing came of that.  Now
I still haven't seen my package, and Parasol hasn't responded to my mail
in a week.  Any idea how I can get these folks to 1) return my cash or 2)
send me the CDs before I have to move out?

Thanks,
Mike

Subject: Spoonfed Hybrid 'Hibernation Shock' EP (blatant mersh content!)

[apologies for the blatant self-promotion; hit 'delete' immediately if this sort
of
net.hucksterism offends you, and have a nice day]

After much a hullaballoo and a lot of lollygagging about, the 'Hibernation Shock
 CD EP
by Spoonfed Hybrid is finally ready and available.  In case anyone's wondering, 
poonfed
Hybrid consists of Ian Masters (used to play bass and sing in the once-great Pal
 Saints,
and is also the other half of ESP Summer/Dolphins/Continent) and Chris Trout (on
-time
guitar grinder with Blast First recording artistes A.C. Temple and current lead 
uy of
the band Bear who are making records for Che).

The songs on this disc are:

1. Token She-Van
2. The Sun Always Changes My Mind
3. Make a Fist
4. The Violence of Violins
5. Scary Verlaine

Tracks 2 and 5 were originally released on a 7" which came out last year on a Fr
nch
micro-indie, le Tatou Colerique.  The other three are previously unreleased trac
s.  The
whole thing clocks in at a hair under 30 minutes, FYI.

The dirty bit: the cd's are going for $9.00 each (checks payable to Farrago Reco
ds),
which includes postage for those of you residing in these United States.  Send m
 e-mail
for details on overseas and foreign postage schtuff.

Oh, yeh, the address:

Farrago Records
P.O. Box 13148
Houston, Texas 77219

Again, apologies for the blatant mersh content, and I promise not to plug this a
ain.

Cheers,
