I've heard 'Bad Mood Guy', but unfortunately don't remember much of it; 'Come
Visit the Big Bigot' doesn't ring any bells.  I'm not much of a fan; a friend of
mine is, though, and I did like 'Cuisine' enough to record it from him, and I
believe it's the second 'half' of this album that HNIA reminded me of.

Well, i was done at the local HMV, panning through the various
dance section, not really expecting to find much of anyhting (not
because i dislike HMV, this paticular HMV just really blows chunks) when
hiding behind a new crappy culture beat single i saw Three A.D. . This
is a waveform copalation, and a follow up to One, and Two A.D., both of
which i was very inpressed with. It has a new unreleased track by Jhona
Sharp (Space Time Continuum) called Oracle,  and other stuff by waveform
people such as, Real life, higher intelligence agency, sound from the
ground, a new one from A Positive life, cold cut, and star seeds are
some to note. Anyway, i have listened through it a couple times and
really hace enjoyed the more upbeat, yet still entrance style of many of
the writters on this compalation. Just wondering if anyone else has this
disk, and what they think of it.

I guess most of you know this... I found the tour program price a bit too
high. The CD contains a single song, called "SAMBETIKI." This is a 7,5
minute instrumental which digresses from the album somewhat... I guess it
is worth the price if you're a fanatic... The date I attended (July 4th
Istanbul) included no freebies...

It's one thing to say: "I shmoozed with (your favorite artist here) at a
party and he/she told me I was really cool and all about the new record and
when it will be released and how it sounds just like the Mamas and the Papas
etc..."

Or speculation from a fans point of view:

This is a *fans* forum, and it bothers me to see people bring their personal
vendetta into the fray. Granted, it is a blurry line, we would all like to
believe that we're in with our favorite artist and that we know whats best
for them but, I really don't want to know about someones problems with an
artist on a personal level.

The A Certain Ratio Factory back catalogue is available on CD in the UK
on Creation Records. But as for where they are now, or the origin of the
name... I'm not sure. I remember reading a magazine article about Factory
years ago that said the name 'A Certain Ratio' had fascist connotations
in the same way that 'Joy Division' and 'New Order' did, but I'm quite
happy to believe this is not true. If anyone knows the origin of the
phrase 'A Certain Ratio' - which appears in Italian I think - on a coat
of arms on my copy of 'The Old and the New', please let me know!

Aha!! The second half = the additional 'Piscatorial' tracks!! Now I
understand. Those tracks are indeed rather HNIA-ish, despite the fact that
SH make electronic music.

ACR are still around, I believe, and on Creation who reissued all of their

As with the majority of bands, the earlier you go, the better the music.
"Shack Up" is perfection.

 1-6 are the standard album, "Goriri" is (I think) the track on the
 "Macro Dub Infection" compilation, not sure of the other two.

 "Twain" should read "Twine".  Most of these seem to be from the first
 self-titled album, or the "Rhythms, Clusters and Resolutions" remix
 album (2, 10, 15 and one of 7 or 8 for sure).  I'm not even sure of the
 title of the remix album, but it's something like that.

Subject: Spooky: Found Sound


After three superb eps over the past 18 months, Spooky haven't let things slide
for this, their second album (following 1993's Gargantuan). As the title
suggests, there is sampling a plenty - radiators, lawnmowers and all kind of
metallic clunking. But this isn't wilful experimentation for the hell of it.
Everything fits together in a percussive force, that still finds plenty of time
for stretches of blissful melancholy. If you need pointers, then Autechre's Tri
Repetae is a pretty close place to start. But this is probably a little less
minimalistic, and for the most part the tracks are pretty short - 16 in just
over an hour. It's not easy to pick out highlights in an LP which is more or
less one long highlight. Superb.

Fraser/Guthrie/Raymonde (whoever they may be) that samples extensively from a
Cocteaus track, but I couldn't say which one not being a fan.

'Reservoir' is from the 'Lonesome Sound' 7", 'Whitewater' from the 'Why We

Hey There;

just so you know, Tower Records has an ad for DCD and they list two show
dates,  July 17th and 18th.  Unfortunately, I call city centre and
they said that it
        was a mistake.  whose mistake???
don't get all excited if you see the ad, and if you did see, and were

you just go around looking to set off a flame war don't you?  i think it's a
bit much to say that your views (i.e., there is no problem with warren's
personality) are the views of everyone who knows him...someone in the public
eye (public in the eyes of this list, at least) will always have his/her
detractors, dude...just because you don't agree with k-j doesn't mean she's
wrong...k-j was repeating what she had heard from someone else (while
excercising the common decency of protecting that person's identity)...she
has no reason to lie, dude...think o these things before you let your "defend
my friend" instincts take over...

~~~  listen "dude", as i mentioned above, if you're going to attack someone
publicly, you should at least do it somewhere where that person can defend
him/herself.   I would have been willing to entertain kelli's gripe had see
even been able to give a reason why Warren was such an liked person these
days.....

I am not the one starting the flame wars here....some on the list enjoy
starting gossip like this by merely stating "well so-and-so is shitting on my
friends" and can't even back up that claim~~~
