I Absolutely agree with everything you have pointed out. Except for
item number 12. I am a "fan" of both groups, however i cannot make
that generalisation -- just take a look at the flame wars we've been

from addicted to noise;
Addicted to Noise staff writer Gil Kaufman reports: In his continuing
attempt to assemble the most eclectic (some might say least
commercial) label on the planet, American honcho Rick Rubin recently
signed Pakistani singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan to a four record deal.
The suddenly hip singer of Qawwali devotional music, who slipped out
150 albums while nobody was looking, has his first American Recordings
album in the can already. "Holy Prophet," a collection of traditional
music, will be released in September. Plans call for Rubin to record
another traditional record with Khan while he is in the U.S. on tour,
as well as an album of (gulp) duets with an as-yet-unnamed gallery of
alternative artists. After all, it was Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's duet
with Eddie Vedder for the Dead Man Walking soundtrack that got him all
the attention. Sources also hinted that some "very special guests"
might turn up at some of the dates on Khan's North American tour. We
assume this doesn't include the recently washed-up-on-shore fauxfolkie
Donovan who will open the first six dates and whose teaming
with Khan is an inspired one because, according to an American press
release, "both of these seasoned musicians are renowned for their
pursuit of greater spirituality, high consciousness and uniquely great
music." Oh, and we thought "Mellow Yellow" was just about getting

Now what was the point made referring to Ani Difranco's Dilate?
I am a fan of Ani, and its about time that she gets her moment in
the spotlight... After 7 Albums, and a compilation album, all on her own
record label, which she started at 18, her indi status is finally working
for her on a cult level...She is still getting hounded by the mega-labels
to sign on for greater exposure, and she keeps saying that she's doing all
of this on her own. Sure she'll get greater exposure, radio airplay, etc.
But in the other day's LA Times, there was an article stating that Ani
gets the highest royalties per album than any other artist (she gets a
little more than 4 bucks, Hootie gets around 2 bucks, and so does Michael
Jackson) Ani does everything herself - From writing/composing the songs,
to artwork, to packaging, to publicity. She gets the final word.
Anyway... has anyone heard 'Dilate'? I think its pretty good....
and hopefully will get greater recognition by the end of the year. Anyone
out there seen her live? Now that's an experience unto itself... A
different kind of religious experience. I saw Lisa Gerrard at Town Hall
last October - that was a religious experience - tranquil-like. WOW!
(and I hope to catch DCD at City Center in a few weeks - I still have to
call for ticket info!) Ani Difranco's more like pure
sweet-rage-feminist-pop-groove-funk. I can't think of words to discribe
it. People were saying that DCD/Lisa Gerrard's music is meant to be heard
live... The same goes with Ani. Her studio albums don't quite capture her
live. But rumor has it, that Ani is currently mixing a live album!!!
Just out of curiosity, anyone out there October Project fans?
Anyway, sorry about the rambling...

to post this little story.
Been dating a new girl, she's kind of cool, but musical tastes are pretty
different. She's not into music much but enjoys country. Hmmm... Anyways,
I was helping her move last week and was unloading stuff from her car. I
came across two CDs, one being some top 40 artist I can't recall, the
other CD being Century Flower by Shelleyan Orphan. I was very confused
at finding this CD in her car and was unable to speak for several
minutes. She then explained that a friend had given it to her and she
didn't care for it much, but offered it to me! Yay! I had always been
meaning to buy it but free is so much better.

According to the 4AD press release Stars on ESP is 'performed in the main
by Warren Defever (guitar), Karin Oliver (vocals) and Trey Many (drums).
All written by Warren except 3 and 5 co-written with Erica Hoffman, 8 and
9 with Matthew Smith, 13 with Mark Kozelek of Red House Painters, 14
written by Trey Many. Tracks 2, 10 and 15 are variations on a theme of
Woody Guthrie's 'This World is not my Home'. 'Last One' is a gospel
version performed by the ESP Family and a hand-picked choir...'

Aside from the blatant stupidity of the mentioned record store
employees, one of the reasons that the HNIA cd is not being found
everywhere is because ADA is handling the distribution for this 4ad
title. Furthermore, some stores that do order from ada are getting
their orders late due to some sort of corporate excuse regarding the
rush before the 4th of July. For myself, being 2 day UPS ground time
away and doing my order last Mon. and still not seeing it makes we
wonder what else is going on.

Yes! Every single store I called acted like I was speaking another language. I
had to spell the name out for one stupid girl. She then cheerfully replied,
that indeed, it was out today. "Yes," I told her, "that's why I'm calling."
Of course nobody had it (though the helpful chap at Streetside records informed
me that they got the promo copy today--big help). Add me to the list of
frustrated 4AD fans.

Gee, I *like* "Aion", but I have to agree with much of what eine'xile said
about "Spiritchaser": it's lame, doesn't go anywhere, never even gets near
"Milk & Kisses" (which I'm also not raving about), and in parts sounds
tackier than a bad Bel Canto song.
I've never been wild about Perry, and now have to wonder how this album
came about... what happened to the solo work he was doing? Did it turn
Take "Song of the Stars" as an example. The percussion works well enough,
and I for one don't mind the faux birds, but the synthey guitarish loops
laid over it all just make me cringe. Have I become so prejudiced about
Perry that I'm now inclined to criticize his pronounciation of a language
I know nothing about? I'm not sure, but while Gerrard sounds wonderful
(and convincing), Perry's interpretation falls flat for me.
I remember frowning when I picked it up in the store and saw the sleeve.
For those who haven't bought the album yet, I'd recommend taking a cue
from the cover art: what you see is what you get.
Anyone wanna trade for a copy of The Mirror Pool?

"I was wondering if anyone has heard anything new or knows what the band
Breathless (Dominic Appleton, vocals - TMC) has been up to?"
supposedly breathless will have a new album in a few months. they have had
some personal problems i hear but are ready to dive in again. this is from an
article i read a few months ago when after the compilation cd came out

Does any of you have the confirmated tour of Cure?

I second Joseph.
Why do we have to hash that shit between those people,
To them: don't you think is better to continue your discussions by
personal messages instead of make it public?

Has any of you heard this ethereal-noise band?
I know it was the group of Christian Saville from Slowdive, but
only have a 7" single with 2 songs: Breathe/Sleep. But God i just
LOVE those songs!!
So is there anything else by Eternal?

How do receive the digest vesion of this lovely/infuriating discussion?
Date: Tue, 9 Jul 1996 18:50:48 -0500
Hey i wanna join in the fun! Too bad nobody told me when orbital was
playing =( Opus 3's "It's a Fine Day" is loaded with vocal samples,
but it ain't tracey thorne. It's ms. opus herself, spliced to bits.
Okay, i'm just makin' it up, but i'm not the only person who hears
edit points all over the song.
Mary Margaret O'Hara wrote a funky song for Holly Cole's "Don't Smoke
in Bed" album.
Last i heard of Breathless was the Heartburst compilation cd,
which was supposed to be an introduction for the uninitiated
to prepare for the new album. A couple years later, where is
it? Mebbe i missed it when i was living in the swamps?
Liz Fraser's "Song to the Siren" is lovely, but still doesn't beat
the whole TMC "original versions" cd.
I got a ticket to DCD this month, but i don't think i'm goin. Not
worth the vacation days to me, after Spiritchaser.
Saw Come last night. The whole time i was scared Thalia'd commit
suicide in the morning. Kinda puts a damper on a great night of
music eh? They played hnia "Livonia" over the p.a. between bands,
really cleared the crowd out. I was impressed.
Would internetters really listen to compressed over-the-modem digital
radio rather than going to the record store to hear new stuff?
If y'all are gonna flamewar, try to cut out the big quotes of elvia,
okay? Kinda defeats the purpose of a killfile. However, the
"friends of e" line could be a reference to a dance tune from
'91 or so by "friends of carlotta", or "f.o.c.", with their
super-catchy song, "fingerfoc" (or somesuch).

Thank you everyone who e-mailed me personally or posted to this list re: His
Name Is Alive. Based on glowing, gushing ravings I bought Livonia today, and
it is absolutely PHENOMENAL (excuse me for shouting...but I think I had a
religious experience.) I will acquire the rest when I have the ducats...I
think I've spent over $150 on CD's in 2 months, and I'm a tad over budget,
Now I sure hope the rumor is true that they will be in Atlanta in
August...I'd love to see them work their musical chemistry live.
So is the CD everyone's talking about "Stars on ESP" released under the HNIA
name, or is it another, related project under another name? And do you all
love it as much as all their other stuff?
Again...thanks for all the e-mail. You made my day...it's great to find new,
truly creative work amidst so much mediocre crap out there (but not on THIS
P.S. Folks looking for the next "undiscovered" thislisty band may want to
check out "The Changelings"
(www.mindspring.com~mkinsey/changelings/home.html) from Atlanta and "Squonk
Opera" (http://squonkopera.com/) from Pittsburgh.

Yes, some people haven't found it yet and SOME people were able to buy it
this past weekend...4 days early!
What's up, 4AD?
