Ooooo...I have to disagree with this.  The UK has a popular music scene that
could be labelled, at times, as being just as or more dismal than that of the
US.  The next time you read NME or MM, check out the "regular" charts.  The top
records are really no better than the top American charts.  Sure, a great album
may pop up now and then, but the UK has a pop music scene very much like ours.
The point I'm trying to make is that we do not have papers like NME and MM, but
the UK does have papers like Rolling Stone and Spin.  Rolling Stone is NOT our
equivalent of NME.  We really don't have one.  AP and Option are monthly and
don't contain a fraction of the release information that the UK weeklies do.

Are they easily available wherever you live, as NME/MM are to 99% of the UK
population?  Are they expensive (my recollection is that they cost quite a
few dollars, don't they)?

Maybe.

I don't think that's true.  It may be that "popular tastes" in the UK are,
for example, slightly more "thislisty" than in the US but they're still
very un-"thislisty"!  Popular taste in the UK has considerably more in
common with popular taste in the US than the tastes of those on this list,
imho.  I think if NME/MM were to cater to popular taste in this country,
they'd be very different papers.

In any case that doesn't help those who bemoan the lack of US equivalents
(covering interesting music *at an affordable price*).  Maybe these people
need to get hold of mags like Alternative Press and Option but what you
write above suggests these aren't nearly as adventurous in their coverage
as NME/MM.

I have just seen an interview with Elvis costello on UH-1 (or something), a
satelite channel I happened to be watching (not mine). Didn't show much of his n

material (except one song "It's Time"), but he did say he has wanted to work wit

Lush for quite a while. I was wondering if this is based on the new material or 
heir

Anybody heard this collaboration yet?? I didn't fancy "It's time", a voice and a

mmmh... well, in my ambient tv passages are seen like a "corruption": if you

I see that people enjoy to find "rare" bands, when they become too famous,
and everybody start talking of them, the kind of fan I'm talking feel like
betrayed.

I am a non brit that imes ago thought it was bad not to have papers like the
nme or mm, but have changed my mind.  First I was youger of ten years,
second ten years ago they was not into hype like now.

one of the main reasons I liked these papers, and I still like the idea of
papers like these now, is that they are big sized, full of colour, and, most
important, weekly.  The paragonable press we have in Italy come in A4 bw
monthly mags, that do their best to provide a vast coverage but for their
monthly frequency become more a point of arrival instead of start for news
and bands.  being there is more like a celebration more than introduction.

there is also to say tht the italian alternative market (alternaive to
mainstream hyped neomelodic popular singers, like Sanremo acts, or foreign
"trasgressive" but now indulgently accepted groups like U2, simple minds,
springsteen...) is of little relevance compared to the british one, or the
german one, that is, in my opinion, very prone to hyping.

the difference is that it seem that germans "believe" to hype, while it's
like brits say "let's play this game and let's buy or like the bands bring
up by hyping until they last".  they know it's hype but they wish for hype
anyway.  it's like they think to be the active part of hyping.  maybe it's
just an impression, anyway.

personally, I don't buy nor trust NME or MM anymore, apart if I see a
particular feature, and it did not happen in the last year.  I think this
hyping game is becoming too much relevant, and I see the bands I like
treated like old stupid grandfathers that don't want to understand that now
is time to regrown stupid haircuts, then being neopsychedelic with stupid
looks, then dressing this or this other way.

I really don't think that's true any more. With obvious MOR exceptions like
Celine Dion, Mariah Carey and Alanis Morrissette, the bulk of the stuff popular
in the UK is more in tune with European tastes than US. House, Techno, Handbag,
Europop mean zilch over there, but sell bucketloads here and in Europe.
Similarly, the likes of Underworld, Orbital, Leftfield sell loads here -
diddly-squat over there. And, although it's nothing to be proud of, all the
Britpop bands and bastard sons of Paul 'irritating-as-fuck' Weller mean little
in the US. Meanwhile, Hootie and the what? would be the most common reaction in
the street in the UK. Names like Blues Traveler, Phish, Dave Matthews Band -
like who the fuck are these people? I can honestly say I've never heard a note
from any of them. Anyway, my original point was that the musical taste of the US
and Europe is more different now than it ever has been.

- Dez

PS I would say that it even applies to the list. I would say that there is a
reasonable correlation between Cocteau-philes and phobes and their continent. I
would even be so bold as to say that the Europeans are the Muses/Pixies/Lush
fans and the Americans the DCD/Cocteaus/Xymox fans. Gross generalisation, of
course, but I reckon there's something in it.

PPS Apologies to Asians, Africans and Oceanians on the list for not including
you in my sweeping statements. :-)

Yes, you are right.  Brenden no longer has his beard.  I saw them on
the 10th and was surprised to see that when he walked on stage.
However, he was donning a little scruff.  Maybe he's letting it grow
again.


As for Lisa appearing thinner...I always saw her as slender.  But it's
hard to tell since they usually photograph her from the shoulders on

Madison, Wisconsin public library.

That's interesting, i hadn't really considered this.

Well, due to the fact that they cover a much broader geographic region AND
come out monthly they can't possibly delve into such depths of
latebreaking news, gossip, tour info, etc. that you can get in a weekly
in one geographic region.  Of course, many regions have their own weekly free
entertainment papers (Seattle has three:  Rocket, Stranger, and Seattle Weekly)
.  Option & AP's features tend to be somewhere between adventurous and
pandering (a little of each, as i suspect NME & MM are too) but the focus is
more on album/singles reviews and they can be acceptably adventurous there.

I think I must have seen albums by all these regularly in second hand

Subject: Duraflow?


Anyone heard of a San Francisco band called Duraflow? I caught the tail
end of a song by them on the radio -- very nice shoegazery stuff,
reminiscent of early Chapterhouse but with more of a psychedelic/Beatles
feel (think "I am the Walrus" or "A Day In the Life".) I think the song
was called "Afterglow" or something like that.

In Albany NY, these are *slightly* easier to find than the British
papers.  Meaning I can take one bus to Media Play for them
as opposed to taking one bus and then walking half an hour
to Borders to pick up MM and NME.  I'd be willing to put money
on there being plenty of other smallish cities & towns where
you just can't get them at all.

No offense, but the whole US isn't Madison Wisconsin.

Date: 30 Jul 1996 08:49:41 GMT Hi, just a note to let you know that Ian Masters, former singer and bassist for Pale Saints, and later of Spoonfed Hybrid, has a new 7" released on Derby Records. To order, send $4.00 (US) or $5.00 (outside US) postpaid, to the following address: Derby Records 12331 Adelle Street Garden Grove, CA 92641 The single is closer in sound to Spoonfed Hybrid than Pale Saints...more in the electronic, ambient vein. Very good and recommended for any fans of his work with either band. Check it out and tell 'em Mike sent you! -Mike

Subject: SONG TO A SIREN and DAVID LYNCH


i think i might have posted this earlier, but i don't see the message in
my sent mail.
        this mortal coil's "song to a siren" will be in the new david
lynch film "lost highway." it stars bill pullman (who had to learn how to
play saxophone and will be playing in the movie...4AD recording
contract???) patricia arquette, balthazar getty, richard pryor, robert
blake, and others.
        from sight and sound, july...
 Sweeney puts up another sequence, a single shot lasting three-and-a-half
minutes. It's night. A cabin in the desert is burning ferociously. But
something isn't quite right. The spare, painfully melancholic strains of
This Mortal Coil's version of Tim Buckley's "Song to a Siren" accompanies
the conflagration. It could have been composed for the sequence. But now
it's clear that the flames are retreating. The sequence has been shot in
revearse, and the song is ending. The delicate voice of Elisabeth Fraser
almost whispers its closing promise: "Here I am. Here I am. Waiting to
hold you." The cabin now stands, completely intact, alone in the dark
desert. A small light above the door glimmers like a distant beacon.

Lynch is back... we've been waiting... i can't wait

The store I work at, Rock of Ages, also has the His Name Is Alive "Stars
On ESP". We even have the His Name Is Alive split 7" with Little Princess
(Davin from Record Collector). I just sell those behind the counter since
I haven't put them on consigment yet. I will have more by the end of the
week if anyone is interested....
