>   Why does Liz hate "Son[g] To The Siren"?

Why does the whole band hate almost all of their previous work?  ... and yet
continue in the same tradition?  I agree with whoever said that their opinions
in interviews about previous work should be largely ignored, i haven't read any
of their interviews lately for just that reason.  It seems like they ignore it
themselves by playing Treasure era songs at concerts.

Who knows.  I suspect though, that, Liz's hatred for "song to the siren" might
be a little different in that (a) she had to sing in english" at a time that she
wasn't ready for it yet AND (b) ppl. kept requesting SttS at Cocteau Twins shows
and it's a TMC song.

Speaking of Cocteau Twins, i heard *Alice* on the Stealing Beauty sndtrk and it
really is a great song in a different direction from all their previous work.
The Mazzy Star song is also quite nice.  If only the Lori Carson and Portishead
tracks were new, then i would have bought the darned disc.

Not to mention the fact that there was a video for
"Song To The Siren" (I think CT's first video for
"Pearly Dewdrops' Drops" hadn't even come out yet)
and that the Twins were billed as
This Mortal Coil on some TV show where they
performed the song live (it was quite good, incidentally).

Subject: Why Does Liz Hate "Song to the Siren"?


They've said that there was a lot of "shit" going on in their (Robin's &
Liz's) lives at the time, which can always color an experience. 4AD was
using the fact that Liz and Robin performed "Song to the Siren" as a way of
promoting This Mortal Coil, while simultaneously overlooking the fact that
they had their own album out, Head Over Heels.  So Cocteau Twins were
getting lots of recognition for "Song to the Siren", but not as much for
Head Over Heels.  Furthermore, people were getting confused about just WHO
This Mortal Coil were and whether the Cocteaus had changed their name or
something.

Additionally, Liz felt that she didn't have enough time to rehearse, and
that the recording was rushed.  In retrospect, she's said that she agrees
that it is a beautiful song and that the recording isn't all THAT bad after
all.  Cocteau Twins have performed "Song to the Siren" a few times on their
recent tour.

Supposedly beacuse it was marketed as TMC and not TMC & CT; also the song
was hugely popular compared to Head Over Heels, the CT release at that
time... so I guess it was some kind of jealousy.

As it stands, I think this simply isn't true.  Most bands in the UK
initially become huge because of TV and radio exposure.  Frank cites Happy
Mondays as an example.  I wouldn't say they were huge in the UK at all.
However, they were huge for the vaguely alternative, rather more
interesting than most chart fodder, sort of music we discuss on this list.
And that's where the music papers come in.  When they first emerge, the
sorts of bands we tend to like on this list are unlikely to attract
positive attention from the powers that be in radio and TV.  But the music
papers can certainly give them a big lift until they are unignorable by TV
and radio.

Also, much as I hate NME and MM (for several reasons, some of which have
been discussed here) I have often heard non-Brits complaining that there is
no equivalent in their own country.  They say that we are lucky to have any
source of info. on non-chart bands.  Surely it's worse to have no access to
info. about these bands than to have the flawed NME and MM?

Supposedly because it reminds her of a bad period in her life.  In an
interview she said she resented the fact that Ivo released it right when
'Head over Heels' was recieving so much attention.  She felt like he was
using the success of CT to push the song....and it gave alot of people the
misconception that it was in fact a CT song.  This is all from memory, but I
think it is for the most part accurate.

Regardless of how she once felt, I think it is safe to say that she now
feels more comfortable with it.  It was performed as an encore during the
Black Session that was aired on Radio Inter in Paris on 22 December 1995.

To be fair, I don't think Stereolab ever claimed to be incredibly original
in the first place. They've always been pretty brutally honest in admitting
who their inspirations are/were, right down to individual songs. So to call
them plagiarists is a bit unfair, really.

Occasionally I think about how lousy MuchMusic can be, but then I think back
to whenever it was that I last saw some MTV, and I'm thankful that MuchMusic
actually plays MUSIC most of the time, even if most of it is crap. They're
much more adventurous in programming videos than MTV is, that's for sure.
And it's more popular in Mexico than MTV...

The Wedge is really the more commercial side of their 'alternative'
programming. Until recently, they had a show in the midnight-to-1am slot on
Friday nights called City Limits that was more adventurous but which varied
wildly in quality.

None taken. Apparently, MuchMusic can't get away with not showing at least
one video a day by either Guns 'n' Roses or Aerosmith, otherwise they get
deluged with mail and phone calls from angry rocker types.

And the Wedge is finally being hosted by someone who knows something about

The FSOL records are all kinda different.
Lifeforms is similar to the ep you heard but much more sprawling and
diverse, where the single reworks the same theme over and over.

ISDN is one of my favourites. Its a little tighter in terms of actual
songs over sprawling electronic doodling. It also has a few more
percussive elements (beats if you will)

Accelerator was recently re-released. Its older, and in some cases a
little more 'dance techno' oriented. Though some of the dancing to it is
definately ment to be done on your back and in your head.

If you liked the Lifeforms single I would really recomend the Cascade
single as the next best purchase. Great groove, and reworked several
times over the course of the disc.

Now, i've heard that too in the US *but* i really don't understand it.  Sure we
have our equivalent of the NME and MM, we get NME and MM at most decent
newstands.  Or do they mean one that covers the US scene?  Of course we do, we
have the lame-butt (IMHO) Rolling Stone and Spin to cover our popular culture
and a myriad of mags to cover the increasingly less alternative alternative
music (including Alternative Press and Option as the most widely distributed
options).  The fact that Rolling Stone and Spin are not like NME and MM points
more to the fact the popular tastes in music are different in the US than they
are in the UK (... and less "thislisty").

Subject: 12" 87 Anthology, anyone?


Hi,

I'd like to trade or sell my copy of the hard-to-find CD 12" 87 Anthology,
which has the 4AD 1987 EPs:

Chains Changed - Throwing Muses
Big Sex - The Wolfgang Press
Lollita - A.R.Kane
Pump Up the Volume - M/A/R/R/S
Sloppy Heart - Frazier Chorus

all with little CD-sized versions of front and back cover art, and an
original v23 / Jim Friedman sleeve.

It's currently the only CD version of Chains Changed, Lollita and Sloppy Heart.

Good condition, I bought it for $45.  What offers?

I would prefer to trade for something good (not necessarily rare, but
probably equal money value) but I will sell if that's better.

                Thanks,

                        Matthew.
