>Regarding Nearly God:
The CD is amazing, in case you haven't heard it.  The songs are more similar
to each other than Maxinquaye (sp?).  Anyway, the domestic (US) release date
is August 6 (as of a month ago).  So, if u can wait, just buy it domestically.

Have not heard it, but am looking forward to it immensely, being a huge
Bjork(and Sugarcubes) fan.  I've been waiting for this since I heard it
discussed on the B/Scubes mailing list last year some time.  For those of you
who missed the connection, Bjork sings on one or more of the tracks, as do some
other artists I can't remember.  Anyone out there want to fill us in (again)?
August 6 - the day after I get to see DCD live for the first time.  Nearly God
will hopefully be a nice way to come down from the drugfree high I'm sure I'll
be on.

Yes, I can.

It's been mentioned on the list before but you can buy a 15 page
tour-program with a special cd in the back cover (one-track 7.35 min.
instrumental "Sambatiki') and a tour-poster with all the dates and a DCD
discography.

>Are the shirts nicely designed?

There are no shirts for sale. But you can buy the tour-program and go to
one of those t-shirt-color-copy-machines and make one yourself ;-)

Lisa Gerrards oversized-extra-extra-lagre-shirt is, like always, well designed.

This ain't the first time I've heard the poetic phrase "smoke and mirrors" used

I think smoke and mirrors is a pretty common idiom for describing
insubstantial things.  It may be a particularly American idiom, hard to
say.  It comes from stage magic - "How'd he get his assistant to
disappear?"  "Nyahhh, it's all done with smoke and mirrors"

wow.  the other night i had a dream with warren defever in it.  for some
reason warren was living in milwaukee instead of livonia, and i met him
there in some airport.  his friend davin was there too (strange considering
i have no idea what the guy looks like).  anyway, we walked around
wonderful milwaukee for hours, then we came to this pyramid near a river,
which we then entered.  his studio was in the pyramid (instead of his
basement).  There, warren showed me these strange leather objects, the
purpose of which i could not figure out.  then the dream ended.
i love dreams.

the magnetic fields are incredible live.  i have seen them twice and opened
for them once.  just amazing live.  they really draw you in with the poppy
music and the deep lyrics.  however, i also have get lost and was really
disappointed with the production and arrangement on the recording.  they
should make a live recording, as that forum really does them more justice.
i'll probably still pick up their older stuff, but i'd see them live again
in a second.  maybe i'll try to record a show of theirs in the future...

Global spirits: Dead Can Dance make world music mystical

     By Steve Morse, Globe Staff, 07/12/96

Attentive listeners have tried to define the music of Dead Can Dance for a long 
ime. Is it a world
music group, since it has used Arabic chants, Algonquin Indian prayers, Indian r
gas, Celtic
bagpipes and Haitian rhythms? Is it a New Age group, since its ethereal vocals e
ho those of Enya?
Is it a progressive rock group, since elements from Led Zeppelin and George Harr
son have turned up
in its sound? Is it a classical group, since string orchestrations have played a
 important role? Or
maybe a techno group, since the duo has used computer sampling?

All of the above, if you like.

There's no other act quite like Dead Can Dance, whose members have embarked upon
an "artisanship of
exploration of different musics, structures and colors," says singer Lisa Gerrar
. She's been with
workaholic partner and fellow global village adventurer Brendan Perry for seven 
tudio albums. The
latest is the meditative *Spiritchaser,* which leads up to the duo's show at Har
orlights Pavilion
next Friday night.

"There's been a lot of sparks and creative electricity through the years," says 
errard. "But I
think we've really arrived at a creative marriage where we speak with one tongue
 It's a really
exciting time for us. Either it's the end, or it's the beginning of another genr
 of the work."

The new *Spiritchaser* sounds like a beginning. It breaks fresh ground with hypn
tic weaves of
African percussion, overlaid with the unutterably beautiful voice of Gerrard, an
intellectual
Australian native who views her voice as representing "an abstract vocabulary th
t lies within the
collective unconscious."

"There's the practical, speaking voice, which I'm using to talk to you now. And 
hen there's the
voice of the spirit," says Gerrard, who sings in several languages and sometimes
makes up her own
words to fit certain melodies and mood states, as on the new song "Devorzhum."

"I know that I'm at my most mature when I sing. And in some ways I feel that bec
use of the
dedication to the work, I have stayed a baby in other areas of my life," she say
.

So dedicated is the Dead Can Dance duo that they spent nine months crafting soni
 textures for the
new disc, which was recorded at Quivvy Church in Ireland. "There's a Siamese-twi
 sort of experience
that takes place through the work process," says Gerrard. "We were together seve
 days a week,
working very closely on every nuance of the voice structures and the percussive 
reas that Brendan
mostly came up with.

"Sometimes we can write a piece of music in half a day and it's finished. Other 
imes we'll spend
two months on a piece of music, grinding and grinding until you literally dissol
e into bits and
rebuild yourself in front of this piece of work," she says.

And much of the work is purely intuitive. There's no master plan.

"When Brendan and I work together, we don't speak much. We sing a lot and play a
lot and do things
like that, but we don't really talk much. We usually only speak when we strike o
 something. All of
a sudden Brendan will turn around and say, `Oh, that's good what you're doing th
re. Hang on to
that.' Or I'll say to Brendan, `Oh, I love that.' So we'll either put it into th
 computer or we'll
explore it further. And we'll explore it until we no longer think it works or it
leads us into
something else.

"Or we may say, `I feel like I'm in a forest now. Can't you imagine this too?' A
d if we both agree,
then we'll pursue it.

"There are many ways of looking at the work. There are the practical things that
take place, that
I'd say Brendan has always been the stronger in. And there are the abstract prop
rties that exist
within the work that I've always been stronger in," says Gerrard, who also relea
ed her first solo
album last year.

She readily admits, though, that Perry is the more driven member of the duo in p
rsuing the ethnic
musics that have made Dead Can Dance so hard to characterize. "Brendan's been st
dying anthropology
and has been since I first met him," says Gerrard, who moved with Perry to Londo
 in 1981. ``Prior
to this new record, he did a study of Haitian music and vodun [invocation] rhyth
s. And Outo is the
spirit that he's talking about. That's the spirit that comes around a percussion
st to make it
possible for him to communicate with the spirit world."

Occasionally, Dead Can Dance's unlimited explorations - and uncanny ability to i
ternalize music
from all over the globe - can lead to problems with the everyday physical world.
One minor problem
resulted from the new song "Indus," which had a short melodic pattern so similar
to George
Harrison's "Within You Without You" (from his Beatles days) that the group had t
 give him partial
songwriting credit.

"We don't know whether we stole it or not. We probably did, but who the hell kno
s?" says Gerrard.
"It wasn't deliberate, because we didn't remember the record. I'm really unfamil
ar with the
Beatles' work, I have to confess. Brendan knows a bit more about it. ... But the
next minute,
musicologists are saying, `Oh, the first six notes are the same.' So we had to c
ntact George
Harrison, who didn't give a damn, frankly. He was gardening at the time. He said
 `Oh, I like that
piece of music. It's OK.' But the [record company] pushed it. So we had to give 
 credit to
Harrison on the thing, which seems really bizarre."

Yep, they're a new signing.  They've had two albums out on the
Sedimental label outta Austin ('Music for Nitrous Oxide' CD and a brand
new vinyl-only release whose title escapes my mind... hey, Thad, I don't
suppose you remember?), and now they're working on a double lp for
Kranky.

Very minimal, droney, ambient, y'know, the usual.  Quite good
nonetheless.  I think their main guy Adam worked on the recent Bedhead
record, but then you gotta figure that things are pretty incestuous here
in Texas....  ;)

this idea actually has a decent shot.  we got a second date added in

i have questionable balcony seats for the first show but 8th row for the

this is exactly the problem I was thinking about. we do demand "increase
in power and complexity" and we do want "ground breaking stuff". these look
like very natural expectations to us. but they are not. 200 years ago
people didn't want "ground breaking stuff". they *wanted* the same old
thing over and over again. they loved they opera they saw today and didn't
care at all that it sounded very much like the one they saw last week.
it may seem horrible to us now, but their way made more sense. I'm not
saying we should stop looking for the "new and exciting". I'm just curious,
why does it have to be new to be exciting.

Subject: New good. Old bad. Baaaa!


I've been thinking some about that interesting question that was
raised a few days ago -- why is change good?  As has been pointed out,
in Olden Days that wasn't true.

Because it really is true.  Well, at least for me.  I might find an
album by a band to be total heaven -- a work of pure genious.  Then
the next album comes out and sounds just like the first one, and I'll
regard the second album as some sort of abhorrant monster.  (Well.
You know.)

It might have something to do with growing familiar with a piece --
loving it, knowing it backwards and forwards, being totally intimate
with it -- and then a (virtual) copy of it comes along, and it all
feels very *wrong*.  Like an impostor.  Like theft or plagiarism.

On the other hand, perhaps I just crave new things.  I'm reminded of a
Laurie Anderson thing -- she's holding a press conference in Israel.
The journalist asks her:  "Why is _new_ good?".  "Well, because it's
interesting."  "Why is _interesting_ good?"  "Well, uhm, because it's,
like, *interesting*."

New is more interesting than old.  Many people don't feel that way,
obviously.  They feel that new things are threatening or confusing or
something.  Or perhaps they don't take note of their surroundings, so
they don't really know whether something is new or old?  I have music
going every waking moment of my life, it seems, and I am passionate
about what I listen to.  Which is quite perverse.

Well then, why don't (most) groups evolve?  As was pointed out, groups
normally stay in a rut or make *very* abrupt changes.  Very few groups
stick to their horses and try to go deeper into what they are doing.
Stereolab, Dead Can Dance, His Name Is Alive and Coil are four groups
that have evolved very naturally and are still doing their thaaang.
The common denominator here is that these groups are all serious about
what they do.  They don't make music to be Pop Stars; they make music
because making music is important to them.  Bands that are stuck in a
rut probably don't (really) care about making music.  Does anybody
really believe that Cocteau Twins' hearts were into making "Milk &
Kisses"?

     would have to wait until some other time."

I enunciate o.k., at least to me I do (and I suppose that's what's 'good' ).

I step up to the counter Tuesday the 9th of July at an unnamed rekkid store
in Ohio and I say to the qualified attendant very courteously and
sssllloooowwly (not to be condescending, just very clear). "Hi.  Do-you-have
the-new-HIS-Name-is-Alive?"

the boy hears me, I believe, because he's giving me a ...

His weight shifts from foot to foot, he scratches his left arm, looks side to
side at nothing in particular, and a small amount of sweat forms in little
beads on his forehead as he recalls in his head, the job description (upon
being hired) that states EXPLICITLY in the company handbook about people like
me (and situations such as these)--

"If a customer asks for anything besides the new Rage against the
machine...just                      stall.  a)The customer will take it upon
her/himself to find it their damn selves  OR  b)They will assume that their
music is entirely esoteric blaming their upbringing on the obscurity of their
tastes, mutter something under their breath and quietly exit the door
(**note** they are not violent just adamant about release dates, PAY NO
ATTENTION!!  They don't give you any credit anyway.  Refer to them as
cretins."

I'm in the unclassified "C" section, the one who insists on getting an answer
from the vendors mouth.  I don't care if it's wrong, but the sponteneity in
the response in asking for let's say, Swallow's _Blow_ is priceless (try it.)


It's weird...at this point I can almost hear their thoughts as said counter
person's mental processes *spin* in a million different directions pointing
mentally to everything from king tubby to chaka khan...it's amazing.  But
amazing as it may seem as they go thru the "known artists" section inside
their mind, they _never_ stumble across HNIA.  (I had a lady run into Yma
Sumac once, but never HNIA)  I pride myself in my inpatience and at this
point in the game I get somewhat irritated and  I think to myself
"Good God, was I not *just* in here in '93 asking the same question??  !!
aloha !! Are you kids on dope??!?"

The attendant feeling my impatient stare opens his mouth.  It sticks a little
at first and then parts, ready and able to convey the truth and the light to
said new release.  The voice cracks, stumbles, regains itself and becomes
clear to my ears, "ummm."

You should have seen my face.  If I weren't so bi-polar It would've been easy
to spot my emotional response, however my mind works in two's and one half of
me nearly wets myself from laughter.  I think "all that time and the best he
comes up with is sweet FA  Ummm. he-he-HA."  The other half is upset though.
 This side prevails in taking the initiative of trying to talk with the
attendant and spews out (rather mockingly btw)  "ummm?  Ummm, you don't have
it or Ummm, you haven't f**king clue one what I'm asking for?"

"The latter, sir..."
"That's what I thought."
I stand there and think a lesson teaching is in order.  So, I grab his ear.
I pull him around the bannister, ear firmly in hand (recalling my days of
yesteryear when my mother did that on a frequent basis in department stores
(which is why I write these real-life occurences now :)   But I digress.

I have the attendant's attention now, I can sense the intensity of his
motivation to learn.
I run down the aisles with my "friend", nearly miss the "H" section, back up
a few steps--scan--Hathaway, no, Hitchcock, no (alphabetical anyone?) His boy
elroy, no, His Name is Alive, yes.  Yes. Yes. Yes.  I get my face right down
next to the HNIA card bring down my companion and point, with vigor, while
shaking my stern finger, "Listen to me.  This is where His Name is Alive is
located!  This is where they will be from now on!  When there is a run of
people looking for this wonderful band from Livonia, YOU *will* say with
pride 'I know where they are!!'   o.k."
"allright" .
I let go of his ear and focus my attention on their HNIA section.  hmmm...3
copies of mouth by mouth, a dirt eaters ep, a copy of Home is in your
head...looks like, could it be YES! Yes.  yes?  No.  No copies of _stars on
esp_.

hmmm.

(shouting now) "I'm am *NOTT* going to leave until they arrive.  The new
release board says july 7, and here I am and there they're not!!!"
"Sorry, sir."
"Sorry ain't good enough sailor."

With that final word flung into the air, and my desire for a captive audience
met I proceeded to plop my ass down on the floor, and secure my right arm to
the rack with my personal handcuffs.  This *will* teach them.



...later that evening









Hi.  It's me again.  I'm silly.  Really.
I forgot the reason I had been saving my handcuffs for a classic moment (such
as what was described above) was that I had misplaced the key.  Ooops.
I also misplaced my darn wallet :(
The His Name is Alive is still not here, in fact if it were I don't think I'd
be able to see it.  It's very dark and lonely here in this store after
everyone leaves.
I think I also need to use the restroom.

Straight from my laptop at a dark unnamed rekkid store somewhere in Ohio,

I really can't believe I went and did this.  I really should have
been working on my dissertation.  In any case, I just spent the
day updating and spiffing up the Lush Homepage and Discography.
I updated the discography; it now contains all releases up to and
including "500" (plus promos, compilation appearances, etc.)  I
spiffed up the "fancy" version of the discog with new in-lined
images, a linked table of contents, and a nicer look.  I also added
various bits and pieces here and there.  The home pages now features
several megabytes of anything and everything about the band.

If you are a lush fan, please check it out and tell me what I
screwed up, left out, etc.  There are a lot of holes in the database.

OK, now back to that dissertation...

While researching Dead Can Dance tunes from their current tour, I learned
one was from the first "This Mortal Coil" album whom I'd never heard of. So
I go to Sam's in Vancouver BC and they've got about 3 different TMC. I
suspect the one I want is the one that has no track list or date on the
back. I grab it and walk up to a clerk and say "I think this is the first
This Mortal Coil album and I'd like to open it up and see if the track I
want is inside, I'm looking for a cut by Dead Can Dance." He takes one look
at it and says "yes that's the one with cuts by Brendan Perry and Lisa
Gerrard." I open it anyway in case this was an astral fluke. Sure enough he
was right. I was impressed to say the least.

probably me, but my conservative calculation is that roughly at

ESP Continent and ESP summer are very different. But they use the same
source material.

ESP Continent is pretty much the straightforward sessions of
callaboration between Ian Masters and Warren Defever. Its sorta in the
vein of Spoonfed Hybrid musically, sparse but interesting instrumentation
with a focus on Ian's voice and melody.

ESP Summer takes the same session material and
remixes/re-masters/defeverizes the songs ala Warren Defever. It takes a
few of the songs and adds alot of production texture and atmospheric/dub
effects.

ESP Summer is avail as a 10". ESP Continent is avail as a French import
on CD. ( I still have a couple copies if anybody's interested post me
privately)
