 "The Guild of

When this was originally issued, it came as a clear vinyl 10" and CD, both
with similar folding sleeves. The CD that is available now has a regular
jewel box.

Note that 4AD is NOT credited on Kendra's track on the Joy Division
tribute. Hmmm...

I hadn't really thought of putting the three bands in one message, but
you hae a point. The last time I really put a song on repeat like this
was Electronic's "Disappointed". Before that, Opus III's brilliant
rendition of "It's a Fine Day".

1. How is the new Electronic stuff?

2. When is the album coming out?

3. Whatever happened to Opus III.

Subject: Let's just rename this the DCD List and be done with it


Realising that this list is inundated with DCD flotsam every day of the
week, I'll try to keep it concise and to the point:

*  A lot of people have expressed a slight disappointment in
'Spiritchaser.'  Reaction has been generally one of approval, but there's
a general consensus that it's a bit, well, 'light'.  Meaning that the
listener is not 'transfigured' by the music; the world does not reveal
itself, the clouds do not break, the hosts of angels remain a distant
memory.  Know what I mean?  Everyone's had that hair-bristling feeling,
the feeling of absolute positivism, engendered by truly spiritual music.
Everyone's got their own special favourites that have shaped their lives,
and that's what makes music one of the most powerful forces on earth,
and, unfortunately, seems to fool second-rate musicians into thinking
they can influence people how to vote (j'accuse NME, take note.)

The apotheosis of this energy is in the live act.  At the Olympia in
Dublin, the first gig of the DCD world tour, all the above and more took
place.  There is nothing more powerful than organised percussion, the
driving force of the current tour.  Hence the power of a track like
Dedicace Outo, but only *when performed live.*  This is the nub.  The
material on Spiritchaser is a live experience.  No sound system on earth
can reproduce the energy, the 'ki', of the music that Lisa Gerrard and
Brendan Perry have decided to commit to disc.  It's unfortunate, but the
power of this music is three-quarters lost when it is reproduced.  Hence
the 'lightness.'  I was walking home from a club the other night at about
four in the morning up Dublin's Grafton Street, and there was a street
party going on.  People were swarming all over scaffolding, the
brickwork, thronging the street, dancing and swaying.  The atmosphere was
carnival.  And why?  The only reason for this was a group of three
drummers, not unlike the backing group for DCD, who were pounding out a
thundering tribal beat.  Nothing more.  If I had heard the same drumming
off a CD, it would have passed straight over my head.

This is why Dedicace Outo probably sounded like a brilliant idea at the
time up in Quivvy Church, but now sounds rather pointless.



*  Point number two: it's only a matter of time before Brendan Perry
ditches the clothes, gets himself a long white robe, rents a ranch and
starts a dodgy commune.  The man may have prodigious musical talent, but
those lyrics sound as if they were lifted from the copybook of a
twelve-year-old asked to write about 'de environment'.  They are lyrics
to seduce female teenagers to.  He is just as sinful when it comes to

(FICTITIOUS) INTERVIEWER:  How do you get inspiration for your songs,
Brendan?

avenues, new wormholes where tread the spirits who shape our lives that
in shaping the whole unifying force we come to understand that we are all
but one except when we are turned inside out and find that in old magic
we are brought together in The Craft and discover that we are only empty
vessels where leylines cross and we must come to our crossroads where we
must decide where our souls must lead us up the path of true knowledge
which encompasses the whole point of what I am trying to say.


I wish I could do that.

Then again, he can play the yang chi'in and I can't, so 'Nuff Respect to him.

Subject: KendraSmith/InCamera/HNIA


Hi there! A couple of questions I hope someone can enlighten me on:

 I just bought Kendra Smith's 'Five Ways of Disappearing' CD. Don't
know much about her. Before I listen to the album, can someone please
give me a brief history of her background? Who has she worked with
before, any previous band, etc..?

 Found In Camera's '13(Lucky for Some)' CD at the shop today. What kind
of music do they play? Should I get this album? I love most of the 4AD
bands, past & present.

 I know this is kind of outdated, but I only started subscribing to
this list recently. Can someone tell me how HNIA's 'Mouth by Mouth'
album compares to Livonia & Home Is In Your Head?

Your input will be much appreciated!

Cheers,
tytan

 I think Mushroom records supplied all the music for neighbours ,  and at

 the time they distributed some 4AD bands ... I can remember the episode

 It just vibrates across the string(s) to produce a constant tone ...
 it just looks like a little chunk of plastic from what I've seen ..
 The band that I saw using it (an Australian band called "The Mandelbrot
 set" - very thislisty , but now sadly defunct) only used it on single
 strings at a time , so I'm unsure as to whether it's possible to get
 the same effect with chords ..

See-saw, and Shallow. We also will review old and new guitar gear, and deal
with topics such as label deals, publishing, touring by interviewing bands
like Ivy, Edwynd Collins, Luna, etc.

Anyway I'll post the URL the day it goes up (hopefully on the 4th of july.

Also, if there are any Guitar Geeks lurking on the list in some prominent
bands (Closedown, Dart, Super 31, Ellysium,  etc) Please get in touch

make it a group of thirty drummers, pounding a sometimes thundering

I cannot confirm or deny this. But I certainly hope not because it really is the
most dire record 4AD have ever released. Absolutely without any redeeming
features at all. And being purely selfish and a mail order subscriber, it's not

The only AD version of AXIS 3 I was aware of was the "God In An
Alcove" flexi released with the August 1982 issue of FlexiPop
magazine in the UK.

I know for a fact that after AXIS 3, the "Dark Entries" 7" was
reissued in February 1980 with the blue 4AD label design and a
Beggars Banquet number, BEG 37.  The single was reissued again in
the same month with BOTH Beggars Banquet label design AND the BEG 37
number.  All I was aware of for AD 3 was the above mentioned flexi.

And another Axis item, Shox (AXIS 4) also received an 4AD release
after the Axis version was sold out.  It reappeared as AD 4...

Why don't you go and listen to the album FIRST?  I love Kendra Smith and would
love to tell you all about her previous bands BUT why would you want to know
about her if you end up disliking the disk?  Sheesh! (and besides we've all

MbM is a real let-down and "sell-out" ;) in my book.  Sure there are a few good
songs but it's much more mundane than either of the previous releases.  There
are those who think it's a work of genius (mostly, the same ppl. who hated
Livonia).  I think HiiYH is best but i still haven't found Universal Frequencies

Subject: Jenny Toomey is sexy/In Camera isn't...


I thought Liquorice WE'RE still on 4AD; I've heard talk of a second
album for 4AD.  And they are listed in that "for more info on..."
part of the STP tape inlay.  At any rate, they'll still release
stuff on Simple Machines, I'm guessing.

A side story:  I wrote Jenny Toomey before "Listening Cap" came
out and one night shortly thereafter, I received a call from
Jenny!!  We talked for almost twenty minutes, at her cost!!
She's really great and as far as I'm concerned, really IS the
second most beautiful girl in the world!!

The cover for In Camera's last 4AD 12" "Fin (BAD205) isn't much
to write home about.  It's black and white and features the
band milling around the studio.  It's a backwards picture, in that
everything is in reverse; the clock on the wall is what gave it away.

The back cover is equally un-v23-ish, just a white background
with light gray fonts reading: "In Camera/Session recorded
for BBC Radio 1 9.12.80/Jeff Wilmott/Peter Moore/Andrew Gray/David
Steiner/fin."  The Hogarth Road address for 4AD is given as well
as the BAD 205 number and a (c) 1980 notice.

The best In Camera cover art is by far the "13 (Lucky For Some")"
compilation cover pic (BAD205CD on 4AD/TB106CD on TeenBeat).  Is it
as gross or grosser than the scheer album cover art?

I don't know the answer to your question, but I am intrigued.  What does
'handwriting' sound like?  And knowing who Egon Schile was, I'd love to
know what music is for him...

Congrats.  Not only for your health, but also because 85 cents of every
dollar in political contributions from the Tobacco companies goes to the
Republicans, to kill free speech, eliminate welfare, eliminate medicare,
put prayers in our schools, and ban abortion.

just a thought.

Powerful songs and performances.  Their music is the most emotional rock
 to be found these days.  The goth "beautiful sadness" concept fits Come
 better than those people, who sound lazy in comparison.

Then there's the great Dead Can Dance, who've finally made an album i
 don't like.  The explanation for this is simple: there are no songs on
 the record.  Eight "tracks", "cuts", "pieces", but no songs, though
 one or two are kinda close.  I guess brendan saved 'em all for his
 solo album.

for more dreamy dubby dancy music, check out Icerink, former record label
of St.Etienne man bob stanley.  he has a handful of wonderful bands,
including Sensurround, Oval, and Golden, whose "Anglo-American" is quite a
blissful fave of mine...
