Subject: Re: stars on esp / all things ESP


the new issue of Alternative Press (with the Dead Can Dance cover) explains
the origins of Warren's ESP obsession...it encompasses ALL things ESP - from
the jazz label to ex-sensory perception to Esperanto (yes, believe it or not)
check it out...

there's also the DCD article, in which Lisa uses the words "shut up" and
"bullshit" - I'm still watching my Toward the Within video interview segments
to recover from it (hearing her talk about releasing herself from the fleshy
prison helps considerably)

Spiritchaser is also reviewed
and...if you're as obsessive as I am...
there's an ad for Stars on ESP with a picture of Warren not included on the
releases...

Well worth the purchase price.

I guess most people who like (ie. obsess on) music have these albums
that they look for everywhere.  For me, it's been the "Two Nice Girls"
album.  After buying their "Like A Version" ep some four years ago (or
something like that), I've been on the prowl for this album.  It was
released by Rough Trade, and seemed to disappear off the face of the
Earth when RT went under.

Every time I've opened up a catalogue for a new mail order place, I've
looked under "two", then "2", then "nice" just to make absolutely
sure.  And I haven't caught a whiff of it.  Until last month, when I
visited Vinyl Vendors' web site.  The first search pattern I entered
was "Two Nice Girls", and they had it!  Wheee!

So now I have it.  After all these years.  *sigh*.  And it's
*beautiful*.  It's better than I had imagined.  *swoon*.  It basically
sounds like Phranc done by people from Texas, which is kinda what it
is.  :-)  Laurie Freelove does half the vocals.  They cover "Sweet
Jane" by Velvet Underground and "Love and Harmony" by Joan Armatrading
*in*the*same*track* -- they sing both at once.  It's totally
beautiful.

Well -- whatever happened to 2 Nice Girls after this album?  Have they
done anything else?  I have the "Smells Like Truth" album by Laurie
Freelove which is kinda naff, but good here and there.  She left and
signed to Arista?  *Please* tell me that 2 Nice Girls have released 5
more albums on some obscure label so that I still may have a purpose
in life.  :-)

In all actuality while Time Stereo is a tape only release they did credit
two 7"s on their catalog to their label though they were not released via
Time Stereo at all.... So by misleading default, Time Stereo could not
just be a "tape only label"

thought I'd add that for no reason

Subject: Two Nice Girls and Loop(Re: Going hunting)


Two Nice Girls are no more.  They released a total of 2 LP's and 1 ep--The
s/t debut and the ep you mention below plus their last album, _Chloe like
Olivia_ .  If you liked the first  2 releases, you'll also like the last
album.  All of them were released on CD, and they show up used from time to
time.  Gretchen Phillips, the guitar player and sometime vocalist, has a new
band called The Gretchen Phillips Experience.  I know they had released a
tape here in Austin, but I'm not certain what else is available.  A few
months ago, she did a "Farewell to Austin" concert and has since moved to
the Bay Area.  Gretchen was also in a band called Girls in the Nose.  They
released at lease 2 cassettes and a CD--you'd probably also like them.  They
have a similar sense of humor (song titles include "Weddings are Icky",
"Menstrual Hut" and "Does God Have Us by the Twat or What?").  You can
probably still get their stuff from Ladyslipper, a company in North?/South?
Carolina.  I have no idea if they have a web page, but if you need their
address or 1-800 number to get a catalogue, let me know and I can dig it up
for you.

BTW--long before TNG, Gretchen was in a band called Meat Joy, who
self-released one wonderful, but low-fi kind of punkish LP of only 1000 or
so copies.  It's now much sought-after classic in some parts of the Gay and
Lesbian communities.  In Austin, they sell for at least $50.  I know a woman
in Berkely who paid $175.  If you ever see a cheap copy in a store that
doesn't know any better, I recommend you grab it.  (For example, I bought
one at a used book store for $2.99)

BTW2--Speaking of obsessing--Does ANYONE know where I can get _Fade Out_ by
Loop on CD?  If so, PLEASE contact me--I've been searching for about 18
months now....

Happy hunting to all,

Neshtikin Byram

This happened because 4AD had already got the finished product (CD's, I'm
not sure about LP's) in, when Warners told them it would be better to
release the album early 1995.

Subject: 20 questions (or there abouts)


i've gotten such good musical (and movie) advice from the various
members of this list over the last year or so that i figured i should
try again, now that i some questions.  if you don't want to read a
bunch of non-4ad questions, hit  (or whatever your delete key is)
now.

   1) yo la tengo is going to be playing in northampton soon.  what
are they like in concert.  i've only heard one of there albums (the
name of which escapes me), which mixed some slow-ish stuff that i
really liked with some very noisy experimental stuff that i didn't
really dig (though it didn't have a chance to grow on me).  which end
have they been tending towards lately (live)?  2) also, any advice on
which (if any) of their albums i should pick up?

   3) the blue nile is also coming through town soon.  i know i've
heard the name on the list before (with glowing terms).  what do they
sound like?  4) any advice on best first album to pick up?  5) how are
their live shows?

   6) there has been talk about the earlier tortoise albums.
"millions now living..." is pretty high up on my list of good listens
from last year.  how do the earlier album(s) compare?

   7) (very non-listie) dead man is playing up the street from my
house.  i liked the two other movies of jarmush's (mystery train and
night on earth) that i saw.  any comments?  8) reviews?

(rather than making up the last 12 questions, i'll save them for
another time).  thanks in advance for all the excellent advice i'm
sure to find in my mailbox in the coming week. - drew

No, sorry, not five.  The self-titled album is their debut.  The ep
you have had for a long time came next, followed by _Chloe Loves
Olivia_--their last album.  It was a Rough Trade release as well.
Gretchen Phillips, the other main vocalist, has a band called The
Gretchen Phillips Experience.  I don't really know anything about
them.  If you're interested, I might be willing to sell my stuff.

Subject: Re: 20 questions (or there abouts)


1.  I saw Yo La Tengo open for The Wedding Present in 1992.  They utilized both
the pretty stuff and the harsh stuff.  Only at one point was the
distortion/experimentation annoying.  I would highly recommend them.  I only
own three of their albums (all recent).  I would absolutely recommend their
last effort (Electro-Purr-A).  "Painful" I have not listened to enough to give
an opinion ('tho I do know that it is a "critically acclaimed" album for
whatever that's worth).  A lot of people also cite "Fakebook" (an album of
covers from 87'?  '88?) as a favorite, but I haven't seen it in stores in
years.

2.  I detest the Blue Nile, so I'll skip this question.

3.  No Tortoise knowledge...

4.  If Dead Man is playing up the street from your house, I think it's a
no-brainer to go see it. " Mystery Train" was, IMHO, a masterpiece.  Didn't
care for "Night on Earth", but I think it's certain that the new Jarmusch film,
however weak or ill conceived it could possibly be, will still outstrip 95% of
the other commercial releases.  I haven't heard the dirt on it, but it's not
like it's going to be "Waterworld" or "The Cowboy Way" or anything.  You should
be able to expect a certain amount of quality.

IMHO the first Tortoise records doesnt come near the brilliance
of "Millions Now Living..." Its more dissonant jazz/lounge than the
really interesting drone/groove/dub effects of "MNLWND". Its pretty
interesting/challenging to listen to (kinda like a HNIA record), but it
probably wont butter your bread like "Millions Now Living" did.

I don't know if the loop CDs are so difficult to find here in the US, but in

Oh Gahd, You're sooo sweet!  I had the best Birthday ever... The kids
decorated the dining room before I woke up...Waist-high streamers and a
Happy Birthday sign, strung between two chairs...My wonderful husband
played Frank Sinatra singing "I Love My Wife", and "The Best is Yet to
Come"...I'm pregnant and weepy so I just couldn't take it...I was crying
into my roses by 9:30 am... Thanks again to you all...I'm really touched
by the good feelings from here...  Plus, now that I'm 30, I think I'm
taller, and I'm really smart now...

Love, Kristin

hi everyone,

on request from island independent, a guestlist has been added to the
Red House Painters page. They want to know a couple of things about all
of the die-hard fans (principally, where they can send *free stuff*).

at this point, the guest list is only being used by island and
myselfish, but if you're interested in *potentially* having your name
and e-mail address known to other RHP fans, so you can network... i'm
considering making those who are interested a 'public version'.
if you're shy and don't want that option, don't worry. i won't add you
to it *if* it does occur.
you should still sign the list so that their new label knows who you are
and where they can get in touch with you.

thanks for your continued support.

Gosh, I feel really OLD now. What a crock of shit graduate school is.

Scenic plays a free show tonight at Smalls-- Melrose et Gower.
There's an invitation-only record release party from 7 to 9 or so,
then another show around 10 or something, supposedly free. Bring
all of your IPR / Scenic / Savage Republic / Shiva Burlesque

Super 31 plays at the Whiskey on Monday, also a free show.

Subject: Is Minty A Man + stuff


I went to the V23 / Vaughn Oliver 'Is minty A Man' exhibition in Manchester
today. It's at the Cornerhouse for any of you nearby, and is on until early
September. There are two galleries of exhibits, and of course, most of it is
devoted to his/their work with 4AD. It's certainly impressively mounted, and
worth seeing - although I guess many of you, like me, have much of the stuff at
home. There is a video installation, but it's no great shakes really. The most
bizarre thing is a collection of steel buckets randomly placed around the space,
with a V23 logo on, and each containing a 12" vinyl 4AD record warped into a
strange shape. A rather bitter comment on the death of vinyl methinks. I
wouldn't travel to see it, but if you're in Manchester in the next month, it's
definitely worth popping by (and the Cornerhouse has an excellent, and cheap,
cafe)

Bought the new Nicolette LP today, too. For the uninitiated, she sings two songs
on Massive Attack's 'Protection' album. To be truthful, it's no great shakes -
lyrically too much drippy hippy nonsense, and a little light on the tune front.
The drum and bass remix CD that comes free is pretty neat though.

I've not put my two penn'orth (that's about three cents in US money) in on the
new RHP LP as yet. Basically, I'm following the maxim - if you don't have
anything good to say, say nothing. It's not all rubbish, but a lot of it is.
Four years ago, 'Down Colorful Hill' left me almost speechless in admiration. It
still has the capacity to move me - but the new one? Just another record. I
still expect great things when they tour in September (although I don't actually
know if the UK tour is confirmed yet).

For anyone who read Andrew Norman's reply to my Can post, I'd go along pretty
much with everything he said as regards the albums to get / avoid. If that helps
anyone who has a substantial amount of money burning their pockets.

well even though I (the postee formerly known as "Blu") didn't think the

(can you call it that?) aound of the live performance I have on tape.

btw, in lihgt of the new LP, and any new list members who have joined since
I last posted this offer, I still have the ability to make copies of a live
performance of HISNAMEISALIVE after Christmas this past year in which they
had played all their new material (which later appears on Stars on ESP) in a
different...well, call it a different format, along with a few other artists
including his noise side porject the ESP-Beetles (which are too cool~)

Those going to any of the live performances for the tour will understand if
you haven't seen them live before...  he will NEVER play a song live as it
has been recorded on tape or CD...he believes part of the experience to
seeing a live show is not to hear the CD exactly as it has been
recorded...you already have that at home.  He wants you to hear something
different each time.

Subject: A bunch of current releases


Nicolette --
Let No One Live Rent Free In Your Head

A pioneer of jungle, acid jazz, drums-n-bass, whatever, Nicolette's first
album was released in 1992. Since then, she's guested with Massive
Attack, been signed to Talkin Loud and has spun three UK hit singles
from this album over the past six months -- including "No Government"
(featured on the Mission: Impossible soundtrack) and "Brand New Day".

Tim Booth/Angelo Badalamenti --
Booth and the Bad Angel

A series of dreams, coincidences and weird phone messages brought these
two very different artists together across the ocean. Booth, the human
helicopter of James -- The Bad Angel, composer of numerous David Lynch
themes (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks) and the sonic architect of Julee
Criuse's mysterious 1989 album Floating Into The Night. Together they
bring sad beauty to powerful anthems like "I Believe"....

311 --
311

Chill! From the heart of America to the west coast, the hard-edged vibe
of 311 has won many fans since their 1993 debut, Music. Now, last year's
self-titled third album is available in Canada for the first time just as
it takes fire (just went Gold!) in the U.S. A. Current single "Down" is
catching on at alt. and AOR radio, with KROQ, WBCN and The Edge in Dallas
already "down" with it. Adynamic live band that knows how to move a crowd
and who prove it several times a week. Catch 311 on the Warp and
H.O.R.D.E. tours this summer...

Imperial Teen --
Seasick

San Francisco's Roddy, Jone, Lynn and Will came from diverse places and
musical backgrounds to make the perfect pop band and an even better pop
record, Seasick. All-girl punk bands, Faith No More, Sister Double
Happiness and UCLA all contributed to this fine mess, now it's your turn.

The Kelley Deal 6000 --
Go To The Sugar Altar

There were some who had doubts about Kelley's admittedly limited musical
abilities (remember the video for "Shocker In Gloomtown" and her one note
guitar part?). Have your doubts shattered by her very musical solo bow on
U.S. indie Nice Records -- now licenced by Mercury/Polydor for release in
Canada July 24th. Joined by drummer Nick Hook, bassist Marty Nedich and
guitarist Steve Salett, Deal's 6000 will drive-thru Canada later this
month...

The Lemons --
Sturdy

>From Seattle, a band that really rocks. Brute force with finesse are
hallmarks of the four-piece rock machine's first full album After touring
with Cheap Trick, All, The Meices and even Fear, Lemons are coming
through soon enough. Produced by Stephen Egerton (All) and Bill
Stevenson (Black Flag) the team that brought you Hagfish Rocks Your Lame
Ass!

The Jam --
Collection

The hits, the near misses, and now all those fantastic album tracks and
B-sides that didn't qualify as either! Sound like a cynical cash-in? No,
it sounds great -- 25 tracks that have become favourites in their own
right. "English Rose", "The Butterfly Collector", "Thick As Thieves",
"Liza Radley" and "Tales Of The River Bank" are just a few of these songs
you love and can now get on one album -- at a special price. NOW who's
cashing in?!

Tears For Fears --
Saturnine, Martial & Lunatic

The ultimate alter-collection of Tears For Fears B-sides and rarities,
many not available on CD before. Includes "The Way You Are" (never on
CD), "Ashes To Ashes" (from 1992's NME collection, Ruby Trax), and a
fairly complete collection of otherwise lost (but otherworldly and
worthwhile) B-sides from the past dozen years.

Various Artists --
Special Brew

Bridging the gap between "trip-hop", hip-hop, jazz, R&B and the hard-core
of techno is this new collection which includes many new and previously
unavailable remixes. U2, Bomb The Bass, Method Man (remixed by The
Prodigy), Goldie, Money Mark, Howie B. and Portishead (vs. Paul Weller)
all come to the party.

Trash Can Sinatras --
A Happy Pocket

Finally, the third album from Scotland's chiming popsters -- who have
possibly been slightly out of their time -- and in retrospect, ahead of
it. Previous releases Cake (1990) and I've Seen Everything (1993) have
maintained the loyal frenzy and they haven't been away THAT LONG. The
Trashcans also provide the music for (and star in) a 14-minute feature
film, Spooktime, directed by John MacFarlane (Trainspotting).

Singles Going Steady...

OMC - "How Bizarre"
OMC a.k.a. Pauly Fuemana spent three weeks at number one with this
perfect summer song, went double platinum, and picked up four New Zealand
industry awards. Then, Polydor Australia picked up the track where it
repeated the double platinum success and was number one for FIVE weeks!
That would be the biggest selling single by a Kiwi artist in Australia
EVER... can he repeat the feat in North America? Upon first listen, many
think so!

Jennifer - "Da Dee Da"
Can anyone say international success story? Born in Indiana and wintering
in Florida, she was practically born a performer and dancer. She was
signed by Polydor Germany, produced by Miami's Luke Van Paulo for the
hi-energy treatment, and the video was shot in Toronto of all places,
with award winning director Andrew MacNaughtan...

Stop dreaming!!! I don't think Kevin should be there, he's in London right

I think "it has sort of a sixties feel, even though it has definite nineties

Your analysis was brilliant! I also love this sampler/tribute concept, from
the Beach Boys take-off "Universal Frequencies" to the PulpFictiony/surf
music intro of "Static"...this whole effort is just so unique.

I must confess I've always been a sucker for technically original bands that
do tributes to our pop icons...that's what I always liked so much about The
Residents. The main difference there is that Homer Flynn's voice is very
much an acquired taste...a little goes a long way. But the comparison stops
there, really. I just want to re-iterate that "Stars" is brilliant and worth
seeking out. And everyone in the states needs to catch HNIA, coming in
August or Sept to YOUR TOWN (if you're lucky!)
