It's been recorded for over a year, sitting in the Rough Trade

Subject: Bros. Quay alert!


Just a note for film fans.

I'm not sure how public television schedules differ from state to state, but
be on the lookout for this week's episode of "Alive TV". They're showing the
Brothers Quays' exquisite _Street of Crocodiles_. It's one of the most
extraordinary pieces of animation you're ever likely to see, and it's an
initial working of many of the themes from the Quays' His Name is Alive
videos. _Crocodiles_, based somehow on the Bruno Schultz novella of the same
name, is a must-see for any HNIAholic, a fascinating ballet of the surreal in
reverant homage to the masterful work of Jan Svankmajer's. Zdenek Liska's
music seems to have inspired such artists as HNIA, Lucid, and Shinjuku Thief
- sparse, haunting, given to moments of unfathomable beauty as discordant
strings dance around bits of hushed percussion. v23 must have taken more than
a few ideas from this film - look at the artwork on the Pixies' _Doolittle_
and the cover of Swallow's _Blow_ - the tissue-wrapped liver is straight out
of _Crocodiles_!

 As an added bonus, PBS has been following _Street of Crocodiles_ with a
generous excerpt from the Quays' _The Cabinet of Jan Svankmajer_! Obviously a
tribute to the great animator, this is uncommonly bright and capricious Quay
Brothers animation, full of allusions to Murnau, Wiene, Dreyer, and (of
course) Svankmajer. Jan is even featured as the wizened professorly figure
with the massive book for a tuft of hair, who takes the eager empty-headed
apprentice under his tutelage and instructs him in the science of thought and
the theories of the transmutation of forms. PBS appear to have cut out some
of the more tedious sections, making for a quick-moving and delightful bit of
whimsy.

Art is a multimedia expression. Give these films a shot. :)

Sure about that? I believe that One Little Indian just put out

Either way, nobody in the US seems to be able to get it. Strange.

It's about time Lynch woke up to the ethereal, perfect-for-his-movies quality of
Liz's voice.  I finally
bought Julee Cruise's "Floating into the Night" who for the misinformed collabor
ted with Lynch and Angelo
Badalamenti on the music for Twin Peaks, and it struck me that Liz's voice would
have worked just as well, if
not better.

Thank GOD!  I can't wait either, though I'm a bit cynical about a Lynch film wit

I don't know if I got the title right, but I've seen a cd copy of this at a loca
 music store (Seattle area).
 The "out of print" sticker made me think this might be of value to some of the 
ore fanatical HNIA fans on
this list.  From what I could tell, though, it's just a collection of songs from
Livonia and HiiYH.  Anyway,
if anyone is interested, I'd be willing to get it for you, for the cost plus shi

it was marked $14.99 (used).

I'm sure some other list member can fill in the blanks in my
memory... Ivo once told me something about Lynch actually wanting to
work with Liz for the movie Blue Velvet, but for some reason that
didn't happen. I forget exactly what the story was, but there
seems to have been a precedent set years ago.

This is a wonderful album that should be in the collection
of every "heavenly voices" fan.

Just when I was about to post the same thing....

It is a great single, with a very nice sleeve. It's going
under the name "Oneironaut". I don't know what it means,
or even how you say it. I'll have to post some listening
notes when I have the time.

Dewdrops is eventually going to add this 7" to our growing
catalog, but for the time being you can order it from
Nancy herself.

One who navigates through dreams.

The generally accepted view is that they started to go downhill when they signed
to Virgin in '75, although that's not to say that some of the Virgin material
isn't good. Generally, the earlier the better, although 'Monster Movie', their
first (proper) album is more of a free-form rock monster than the more
groove-oriented material of their later stuff. Everything is available,
remastered, on a series of CDs on their own Spoon label (through Mute) so
getting hold of albums should prove no difficulty.

Delay 68 (1968) (originally a limited edtion of 500 pressed)
Monster Movie (1969)

oneiros is indeed 'dream' - it was one of morpheus' other names in the late,
lamented 'sandman' thing from d.c / vertigo and, yep, naut as in astro-,
cosmo-, and argo-, = sailor / voyager / whatever.

my questions are: a) this is different from the 'hibernation shock' thing,
yes? and b) who wants to order me a copy in exchange for something nice and

i asked about the sustainer when i worked at a music shop in buffalo for a
couple of years.  the response was that it wasn't very good.  not
consistent(different levels on different strings) and very hard to control.
in theory it is a cool design, but the implementatiion needs to be worked
on.  it came installed on fernandes guitars in the early to mid eighties, i
believe, but wasn't very successful.  another reason why micheal brook
created the infinite guitar.


if you are adventurous, you might buy several e-bows and chop them up and
install them directly into a guitar.  e-bows are around $70 and i think the
sustainer goes for close to $300.  this is something i plan to do in the
future.  i'll keep you posted.

also, i noticed that robin guthrie had some kind of sustaining device on
his guitar when i saw them on the holv tour.  possibly a sustainer or an
inboard e-bow.  he has used that e-bow sound alot over the years.

hope that helps some.

Well, in fact it is quite simple to use one e-bow
on two strings at once, and I'll bet it's not too
hard for a good guitarist (like Bill Nelson) to
apply an e-bow to three strings at once.

For all those interested Dead Can Dance are on the cover of the new

I may be wrong, but wasn't there a credit on a This Mortal Coil single
(song to the siren?) for someone (Robin?) playing Gizmo (the Godley &
Creme-invented e-bow type thing used by them on their sadly neglected
triple LP _Consequences_). I think this has been mentioned before on the
list, but I wonder if the thing you saw Robin with was, in fact, a
Gizmo..?

i think u must  be mistaken with the sustainer they were dicussing... the
one u mentioned is actually a compressor but named as a sustainer... widely
available from BOSS, DOD, Ibanez, etc. whereas the fernandes sustainer
discussed is actually a special pickup that oscillates at the neck position
of the guitar and is powered by a 9 V battery

i've actually tried a fernandes sustainer a few years back... but it wasn't
really responsive to my playing... mebbe they've improved it by now...=20

anyway... anyone knows where i can get an e-bow in singapore?

i was going to reply the same thing.  the sustainer we are talking about is
definitely not a pedal and is mounted directly on the guitar.

also, the godley and creme gizmo mentioned is not really a string
resonator, but more of a string picker.  my recollection is that it
mechanically strums the strings.  cool idea that i've unsuccessfully tried
to repeat.  as for finding one, good luck.

My favorite bands of that era were Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath & Bloodwyn
Pig. I don't know if they were called "progressive"...but they were, for the
era.

>From the Belly list...

i don't know what the general opinion is of everyone...but i rekon this
is really, really cool news, and it's about time too...it's hot of the
press aswell, ermmmm....nme 3 august, page 4, top corner

        belly have split and tanya donelly is working on her first solo
album, according to a terse statement issued by their record company 4ad
on friday, july 26.
        according to a source close to the band the split is amicable
with all members working on other projects.
        donelly has recorded demos of 17 new songs for an album that
will be released before the end of the year.  she is also working with
ex-pixies drummer david lovering who has played with nitzer ebb since
he, kim deal, black francis and joey santiago went their seperate ways
in 1993.

there's a rather cool picture of the band aswell...well, of tanya and
the drummer bloke(?), who looks quite evil.  tanya's standing behind a
massive bunch of flowers, it looks cool anyway....it says "belly: tummy
troubles" underneath it.  did i say how cool tanya looked? {:-}
        i'll scan it in for anyone who wants it...aslong as you *don't*
ask nicely ;-)

I think this is really cool, the only problem being that she's gonna
have to lose the cool belly logo, natch!  why couldn't she keep belly,
but throw everyone else out...i mean, it's pratically the same, except
it would look bad i sposse....hummmmmm.

I agree that the combination of one of my fave movie/TV directors (Lynch)
with my fave female vocalist (Liz Frazier) would be heavenly (and a little
Las Vegas thrown in, after all, Lynch likes the seedier side of it all.)

Why not? Bill Pullman has the same sort of "wholesome" quality that Kyle
Maclaughan (excuse spelling) possesses...maybe Kyle was busy with another
project and Lynch just had to have a wholesome type (you KNOW how he likes
to toy with those kind of guys?! Mess with their minds & pre-conceived
notions about their safe, secure little lives!)

Well, if you see the names David Gilmour or Reebop Kwaku Baah (the guy they
got from Traffic, even if he did have a cool name) on a record, it's safe to
say it's not as good as the first couple of albums, up to and including
_Future Days_.

Yay!  That is sooooo rad.  A dream group---kind of....I wonder how Kim feels

But I'm really excited to hear the Tanya solo album...does anyone

At first i was also concerned about Bill 'yawn' Pullman.  But then I
realized that wouldn't we think the same thing of Kyle if he had 'become
popular' before he met David Lynch? Wouldn't he take the same kind of roles
given to Pullman if they were offered to him?  Still, Lynch better do
something wicked for me to swallow it.......

Sweet dreams,
