Two "thislisty" Faye Wong CD's:

*Random Thinking (1994): has covers of the Cocteau's "Know Who You Are At
Every Age" (retitled: "Know Oneself And Each Other") and "Bluebeard"
"Dreams" which was featured in her movie debut "Chungking Express" (which
was a very good movie, by the way)

*Impatience (1996): "Fracture" and "Brooming Happiness" written for her by
Cocteau Twins.

I thought I'd never live to hear a Cocteau Twins cover, of all things! CT
fans, visit your local Chinatown music store...

Those of you in the San Francisco area can purchase the Faye Wong cd's in
Chinatown at Man's Trading Corporation, at 745 Clay Street..."Random
Thinking" is $18.00, and "Impatience" is $16.00!  Great prices for Hong Kong
imports...they also have the Cocteau Twins' "Milk and Kisses" Hong Kong
version with Faye on vocals on "Serpentskirt" for $18.00..."Impatience" is a
must for any Cocteau's fan, since the entire album is very influenced by the
cocteaus circa "Heaven or" and "Four Calendar"...why, the album artwork &
photos are better than most V23 stuff lately as well!  Seek it out (the
Cocteaus did their own version of "Brooming Happiness" live when they
recently played in SF, and their version of "Fracture" appears on one of the
new "Violane" singles, can't recall the title.)

Hi,
   Read some notes about the Glee Club, hopefully this information is not
redundant ... I have a mini-lp on Setanta, self titled, set lpm9, 1993, these
are the tracks,
1 Need
   The Blame
   Remember the Years
   Fey Blue
2 Bad Child's Dolly
   Drives You Away
   Free to Believe

   I bought this during my strict vinyl-only days, when I couldn't find a copy
of 'Mine'.  (does anybody know if vinyl copies of 'Mine' really exist, or have
a copy?)  Don't know what this mini-lp is, always assumed it was a follow-up
lp, but perhaps it is the recording sessions that led up to 'Mine'?

 Albums? You'll be lucky.  The four track CD "Lips and Heaven"
 contains everything so far released - also available as two 7"
 singles.  There was talk earlier in the year about two EPs to be
 compiled as a full-length album (in the style of the first Disjecta
 releases), but those plans seem to have been shrunk in the wash.

 Oh, I'm up for the tape swap thing, too.

VARIOUS ARTISTS
Voila - Going Global Series
Quango
File under / Classer dans la section: World Music

A lot of rubbish is talked about house and techno's position as the=20
globe's new musical lingua franca. Usually by people who have spent a few=
=20
too many hours under the sun on a Goan beach. Ditching English speaking=20
vocals and throwing a few lazy tribal samples in the mix doesn't=20
automatically mean you've created the sonic equivalent of the United=20
Nations.

The Going Global Series puts that right. Launched in Paris in September
'93, it takes the African and Arabic music that has worked its way into
French culture, via a colonial past, and places it in a fresh  context.
That of the remix, which when properly executed, is an entirely separate
musical art form in its own right. The result of this experiment is found
on this record: exciting, state of the art modern music with a truly
international flavor.

The artists allowing their work to be retouched, Khaled, Mory Kante, and
Rachid Taha, are huge stars in their own right. Algerian Khaled outsells
Michael Jackson in Africa and Asia, while Guinea's Mory Kante dominated
European radio in the summer of '88 with "Yeke Yeke", which sold over one
million copies. Thanks to its large African and Arabic immigrant=20
community, Going Global's Paris home has become the place where=20

Someone else has said that it comes from a Brian Eno song.  The rumour that
Giles is referring to comes from an NME review which said that Hitler had
decreed that "A Certain Ration" of non-Gentile blood defined a Jew.
Complete bollocks of course.  I never did find out if the reviewer (Lynn
somebody, I think) had thought it up as a (pretty stupid, given the
context) joke or whether they believed it to be true.

Anyways, imho, "To Each" is the essential ACR album and the early singles
are pretty wonderful.  I was so disappointed in Sextet (only Lucinda
frosted my glass) and of course they subsequently subsided into mor.

No, but I've come close.  There was a great "And Also The Trees" cover from

featured some cool mountain scenery.  If I ever release another record, I'm

Hee hee, now now Paul :-).  I'm always surprised by the (imho!)
historically appalling taste shown by loads of people on this list but I
guess that reflects more on me than them.  So many of the bands mentioned
are generally regarded as a joke by Brits with any interest in the sort of
music that this list covers.  You only have to look at the differing
attitudes to the likes of Depeche Mode.  I've always had the impression
that us Brits are more snobby than most nations when it comes to music.

With all the talk about Labradford, Jessamine, and the Kranky drone thing
etc. on this list, I'm surprised the name Super Collider has never been
mentioned here. Super Collider, they are from LA, recorded 2 CDs for the
Emigre label: - 'Super Collider' (1991, ECD 006), not that good, and more
like The Magnetic Fields.
- 'Dual' (1993, ECD 013). This one is brilliant.
Their sound on 'Dual' can described as a cross between the bands mentioned
above and Joy Division/early New Order, with some weird minimal/repetitive
Glass-ish extra.

 The Irresistible Force's "Global Chillage", which has an extremely
 groovy silver hologram sleeve which emits all sorts of psychedelic
 colours and patterns when you wiggle it around - it's spectacular to a
 straight eye, heaven only knows what it must look like to someone
 tripping.  The music isn't bad, a bit like "Blue Room" era Orb (i.e.
 just before they lost the plot - twin CD of Orb remixes is due out
 soon, with a pretty grisly-looking collection of acts being remixed).

 And Main's "Corona", first in the "Hertz" series, I picked up because
 it looked like Pacific's "Shrift" (excellent band, made two singles for
 Creation and then disappeared, I'd love to know what happened to them -
 Alan McGee would never sign that sort of experimental pop group these
 days).  I had "Hydra-Calm" and had never really got into it, had
 ignored everything since, but bought "Corona" as it was cheap and was
 hooked (and by a remarkable coincidence the next time I went to
 Nottingham "Firmament" and "Dry Stone Feed" were sitting in the second
 hand shop - only time I have seen them for several years).

 I can't say that even the Irresistible Force album was bought solely
 because of the cover, but given the choice between several things I'm
 thinking about taking a gamble on, the one with the sexy cover will
 always win.

 No, we just have better taste.  I'd love to hear if there are any US
 acts who are credible in the UK but a joke in the States - certainly
 many of the acts mentioned in people's new romantic lists were a joke
 in Britain at the time, let alone now.  I think the last time I
 mentioned Depeche Mode I got into enough trouble, so I'll lay off that
 subject now.  The best band of the eighties was the Fall.

Actually, I've been nearly fooled by 'em.  The v23 design is so
distinctive, but I've noticed some major labels are now trying to mimic
it on some releases.  Seaweed's CD comes to mind.  You pick something up
with altered photographs and interesting fonts and think "Hmm, something
new from 4ad?"

Well, you're wrong.  I have been a little iffy on some things, but
usually I go by the actual record label (4ad, bedazzled, matador, etc.,
etc) rather than just the cover.  Still, the mock-v23 cover did at least
get me to pick up the CD and look it over.  Had I been a little less
informed.....

The cover is something like $6-$8 depending on if you have

so print it and bring it.

Alligator is near the I-10/Pico overpass and McCabe's.

Je vais bien, merci! Vraiment, je suis americain, mais le grandmere de
ma mere et aussi de mon pere - ils etaient francais...

(oops, wrong letter...)

A-HEM....

*Lisaroo, what is the great Tape Swap?
Well, young roolet, you simply send yer address (email and snail) to moi,
care of st5c0@jetson.uh.edu.  Soon I will send you someone else's address for
whom you will kindly make a tape for your swaping partner, as they will for you.

*Do we need to do anything else, roo?
you may either just snail away or email to your new found friend to find
out what their tastes are, don't own, are alergic to...

*Can I only send 4ad stuff? Where do the Cocteaus fall?
Music is not limited to 4ad, since many here love ESP or Red House Painters
but it's not exactly 4ad anymore, now then is it?
So this is up to you, but we at TAPESWAP reccomend that
you avoid any hootie, smootie, quiet riot, alannis and anything else
containing a level of preteniousness hazardous to young music lover's health....
Also, keep in mind that since this *is* afterall the 4ad list, people sill
probably already have all the cocteaus, etc. Thus it is a good idea to ask!

*What do I do if my person ignores me or does't send me a tape?
I, Lisaroo, do hereby swear that *I* will personally send you a tape and
some other lil' goodies, maybe even cookie recipies ;)
and maybe I can work a deal to sick the gin blosssoms on them as eternal
damnation... I do my best..

*How long can I get in on this sweet offer?
I will be accepting entries until THE LAST DAY IN AUGUST.  I may go ahead
and swap some people sooner so that we can get on with this mongoloid thing..
Not a minute later! I will be starting school, and at the moment I'm scheduled
for 18 hours plus two weenie language lab hours. My GPA will not wait for
errant folk who ignored the ONE MONTH entry period.

* What if there are special problems like adresses in finland?
People far away are invited wholeheartedly. We had Finland and Austrailia
and South Africa last time if I'm not mistaken.  HOWEVER if you are poor
please indicate so, so that I will not send you someone to whom you'll have
to mail 30 dollars worth of postage to... I understand, believe me...

*At what date should I panic and complain If I haven't gotten my tape?
Let's say the end of September, okay? It takes time to go through all
your everyday life tediums, so let's allow some time for that...
You'll more than likely get it sooner though.. If you suspect your
erstwhile pal is blowing you off, let me know and I will make sure you get
some new tunes one way or another, k?


Happy tapeswap to all, and to all a good tapeswap!
send me a letter if you're in...
Kanga and Lisaroo
