Yeah! Speaking of mundane lyrics, I hear something about "Cherry Coke"
somewhere on _Heaven or Las Vegas_; can't remember where at the moment,
it's been a while. I'm not kidding. I always thought I was crazy, but
maybe not in light of "chicken pot pie"...

I hadn't heard anything as of yet, but last night's Dead Can Dance
show in SLC was cancelled due to Lisa Gerrard's illness. Does
anyone know if they will be rescheduling shows?

Maybe we could plan a couple of sites for the fest and some how

Is anybody that techo-fluent?

>is the perdition plastics version of esp summer out on cd yet? if so, how

Nope, not yet. According to Mr. D and the Perdition Plastics guy, the CD
won't be out for another month or so (although I must admit that's been the
regular party line for the last... um, nine months or so, but figure
they're busy folks).
>what's the deal with the vinyl version of stars on esp? monomix? anyway,
>is it worth owning?
>From what I've been told, it is a different mono mix of the CD. The sleeve
design is different, and it's also a hair expensive ($18 at Mod Lang last
week, tho' I haven't been able to even find one measly copy here in Texas).
>what other crazy esp items have been recently and/or will be soon
There's also a mono/wire recorder super no-fi ESP Summer 7" which is
supposedly due out on Perdition Plastics. Personally I'm kinda waiting for
the full line of ESP Ultraman action figures, but I know I'm setting myself
up for a big disappointment. ;)

Ask away, my good man.

The rumors are true---4AD recently anounced that Belly has, in fact,
broken up. Tanys has 17 songs already sone for a solo album that will
come out on 4AD. And who is her drummer going to be? David Lovering from
the Pixies! Yay!!!! Can't wait to hear the album....
Don't know what else to say about the '83 demos...Apart from the fact
that they were just that...*demos*...And not meant for release...I think
it should be left to the band's discretion whether or not a demo is fit
for release or not...If it wasn't for thefts back in the early days in
Boston, I doubt demos would be owned by anyone...The '85 cassette will be
released as is... It was an official "release" by the band at the time,
mailed to radio and all (at which time Sinkhole became the #1 College
track in the US!)... As for T and Leslie's parts on the '83 songs...The
songs (especially back then) were almost solely Kristin's vision... David
and KH would play these songs over and over again, up in Dave's attic...
Considering that, I figure it's only fair that it be left up to KH, as to
when a version of a song is final... Leslie wasn't even in the band yet
in '83...People who haven't *heard* old demos, shouldn't *praise* old
demos (imagine someone publishing the diary you kept when you were 15)...

If he is working with Tanya now, what ever happened to the Martinis? I
never heard anything from them aside from the one song on the Empire
records Soundtrack. I guess that might have been all they released. Too
bad, in a way- I liked that song, but a TD/DL collaboration- THAT sounds
FANTASTIC! I can't wait to hear it!

On the back of the "Universal Frequencies" 7", the bridegroom looks
suspiciously like Vaughan Oliver (of course with the addition of a bad moose
stash and haircut).
Does anyone have the e-mail addy for 4AD mailorder (sorry Andie, again). I
seem to have misplaced it.

I am trying to sort through my collection (and also pay some bills) so I've
posted some 4AD items I'm auctioning on rec.music.marketplace.vinyl and
rec.music.marketplace.cd. I know some folks don't like long lists posted
to the mailing list, so I didn't include the items here. If you are
interested, you can find the posting on Usenet; also I put a copy on my web
page at http://www.electriciti.com/~dclegg or email me and I'll send you a
copy. There are some hard-to-find goodies in there...

The Shaolin Temple Record label has released in the past the ESP
Beetles/Jennifer Wolski split 7" (featuring Warren, Davin, Matt, and
others) and we also have released the Melody Farm EP featuring His Name
Is Alive and LIttle Princess. Both are available from the Shaolin Temple
for $3 ($5 overseas). Cash preferred; make checks payable to David Pozniak.
The deadliest of weapons created by the Shaolin to attack the nervous

I hear all that stuff, too, and I think it's pretty funny. What kind
of fucking loser has a song ruined for them because of the inanity of
the lyrics, especially a song by the cocteau twins? Didn't listening
to the twins teach you anything about the [lack of] importance of
song lyrics? It's the vox, not the words, stupid! If you want
"meaningful" lyrics go listen to "classic/protest" rock on the radio
and begone from here! What a joke.
